  • Eagles tender former UDFA slot WR Greg Ward
    Eagles tendered WR Greg Ward.

    Advice: It means Ward will either have to put pen to paper on a minimum contract offer or sit out the season. Although it wasn't planned for the 25-year-old to be an integral part of Philadelphia's offense for the second straight year, Ward surprisingly totaled 53 catches for 419 yards and six touchdowns due to mid-season injuries dealt to DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, and Jalen Reagor. This move was a no-brainer given that Ward has proved competent with 81/673/7 since entering the league in 2019. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:17 am

  • Josh Gordon joins startup pro football league
    Josh Gordon signed with the Zappers of the Fan Controlled Football league. 

    Advice: It's one of the sadder sentences ever written about a player who once upon a time looked like an all-time great. After bouncing in and out of the NFL for eight years, Gordon, 29, joins the FCF, headlined by former Browns QB Johnny Manziel. FCF games are played seven-on-seven in a "high tech studio arena and streamed live on Twitch," according to the league's site. Fans can apparently call plays for FCF teams -- like a video game with human beings. Gordon most recently played for the Seahawks, and failed the terms of his conditional reinstatement in late December, effectively ending his NFL career. Gordon in 2013 led the NFL in receiving yards.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 12:27 pm

  • Tim Patrick likely to receive high tender offer
    The Broncos are likely to place at least a second-round tender on restricted free agent Tim Patrick.

    Advice: Patrick is coming off career highs, posting a 51/742/6 line as a 15 game starter. Denver may play it safe and give him a first-round tender, as there could be league interest in the 27-year-old.  It’s possible the Broncos shop Patrick this offseason given their depth at receiver, but he'll be brought back if he isn’t traded.

  • Rashard Higgins wants to re-sign with Browns
    Free agent WR Rashard Higgins said he wants to re-sign with the Browns.

    Advice: Higgins hasn't received an offer from the Browns' front office, but the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver is hoping one is coming his way. With the Browns opting for more 12-personnel than most, Higgins' is likely looking at a reduced role in 2021 if he re-signs because Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are under contract. Higgins was a fringe flex option without OBJ last season in good matchups. His ceiling remains low, but he's a quality depth option for an NFL franchise. Higgins will be 27 years old.

  • Edelman (knee) still rehabbing, unsure for 2021
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Julian Edelman (knee) remains unsure if he'll be healthy enough to participate in the 2021 season.

    Advice: "My understanding is he does want to play in 2021," Rapoport said of Edelman's current status, "that's not the important thing. The important thing is his knee going to be healthy enough to play. He's still rehabbing. He's still recovering. Still trying to see if he's healthy enough to be out there for the 2021 season." Due $2.8 million in base salary this upcoming year, the Patriots will likely keep the veteran around if there's even an outside chance he's available at some point mid-season. 35 in May and obviously still recovering, however, Edelman remains one of the easier fades in any offseason fantasy drafts. He should be considered questionable for Week 1. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 10:13 am

  • Godwin says he would play under franchise tag
    Impending free agent Chris Godwin says he would play under the franchise tag. 

    Advice: "Obviously, we all want to have long-term security, we all want to be able to take care of the people that we love, so that's the ideal situation," Godwin said. "But, you know, a franchise tag is not something that I can control. If that's what keeps me here, then that's what it is." Godwin had more words of praise for the only team he's ever known. The reality is, Godwin wouldn't have much choice either way, but this kind of conciliatory tone now hints at the possibility of a long-term deal before the July deadline.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 8:57 pm

  • Titans cut Adam Humphries after lost 2020 season
    Titans released WR Adam Humphries. 

    Advice: The move clears $4.75 million in cap space, and comes just two seasons into Humphries' "four-year, $36 million" contract. It was inevitable after a lost 2020 where the coronavirus and a concussion limited Humphries to just 23 receptions in seven games. Humphries wasn't any more effective in 2019, where he posted a 47/374/2 line in 12 contests. Four months shy of his 28th birthday, the slot man would do well to get a two-year deal on the open market. He cleared 600 yards every year from 2016-18 in Tampa.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 1:11 pm

  • Report: Will Fuller will not be franchise tagged
    The Houston Chronicle reports impending free agent Will Fuller will not be franchise tagged by the Texans. 

    Advice: The Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports the soon-to-be 27-year-old is considered likely to walk in free agency, but that the Texans would like to re-sign him. The tag would cost $16.54 million, a princely sum for an always-injured wideout who still has a week left on his six-game steroid suspension. For his part, with Deshaun Watson forcing his way out of Houston and the organization in free-fall, there isn't much reason for Fuller to want to stay. Even with his injury history and PED problems, Fuller and his game-breaking ability would normally command heavy interest on the open market. With the salary cap falling, however, it could be the wrong year for someone like Fuller to become a free agent.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 12:43 pm

  • Reich noncommittal on T.Y. Hilton's Colts future
    Speaking Thursday, Colts coach Frank Reich was noncommittal on impending free agent T.Y. Hilton's future with the team. 

    Advice: "I think we're all hoping there's a way T.Y. can end his career as a Colt," Reich said. "But we understand there's a business side to it. I hope the business side can get worked out so he can end his career as a Colt." They are not exactly the comments of a coach confident his receiver will be back, while Hilton would have never been allowed to reach this point to begin with if the Colts were desperate to retain him. In decline for several years running — especially in the first half of 2020 — Hilton may have the market dictate to him instead of vice versa.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 10:38 am

  • Raiders release Tyrell Williams, clearing $10.6M
    Raiders released WR Tyrell Williams.

    Advice: Two years into his four-year deal, Williams gets the pink slip after missing all of 2020 with a shoulder injury after posting a 42-651-6 line in his first year with the Silver and Black. Williams was on a first-half tear in 2019, scoring touchdowns seemingly every week before a heel injury sapped his explosiveness. Known as "The Gazelle" in his days with the Chargers because of his big-plays, deep-threat skills, Williams will now be searching for his third team as a 29-year-old. The move saves the Raiders $10.6 million against the cap. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 1:53 pm

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster wants to re-sign with Steelers
    Impending free agent JuJu Smith-Schuster said he wants to re-sign with the Steelers.

    Advice: “At the end of the day, I want to have my legacy in Pittsburgh and retire there,” Smith-Schuster told TMZ. “I don’t want to leave. I’m Pittsburgh for life.” This isn't the first time Smith-Schuster has said he wants to return with the Steelers. The question is whether he's willing to accept a team-friendly deal.  Pittsburgh's cap situation makes it hard to see them keeping Smith-Schuster, and it's possible they'll move forward with Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool as their top options.  The Raiders and Jets are expected to have Smith-Schuster interest if the Steelers let him walk.

  • Godwin hints at no hometown discount for Bucs
    Chris Godwin said he wants to remain in Tampa but wants to "get paid too."

    Advice: While a much sought-after free agent looking to maximize his earnings isn't exactly breaking news, Godwin's comments indicate he won't give the Bucs a hometown discount if the team wants to retain their star wideout. “An extension would be ideal," Godwin said Tuesday. "I want to be in Tampa, but I want to get paid, too.” Bucs head coach Bruce Arians has been clear that the team wants to bring back Godwin, who would remain a key part of the team's Tom Brady-led offense. It would be a major upset if Godwin ended up with a new team in 2021.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 9:54 am

  • Rapoport: Eagles set to release Alshon Jeffery
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will release Alshon Jeffery when the new league year begins.

    Advice: Jeffery was a hero in the City of Brotherly Love during the team's 2017 Super Bowl run but was inexplicably gifted a contract extension two years ago and has since been unable to stay healthy for a full 16-game season. He totaled just six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown last year, recovering from offseason foot surgery at the ripe age of 31. He'll inevitably join DeSean Jackson as veteran free agents on the open market. NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 1:26 pm

  • Report: Golladay a strong franchise tag candidate
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports impending free agent Kenny Golladay is a "strong" franchise tag candidate.

    Advice: "I'll be very surprised if he's actually available," Rapoport added. The Lions are projected to be roughly $20 million over the cap after soaking up Jared Goff's $27.5 million on the books, making it harder to reach a long-term deal with Golladay, whose market value is likely somewhere between $16-$18 million annually. Currently in the midst of a full rebuild, it's also possible Detroit negotiates a tag and trade scenario with another suitor. Over the Cap projects the franchise tender for wide receivers to fall in the range of $16.4 million. NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 10:31 am

  • Panthers re-sign special teamer Brandon Zylstra
    Panther re-signed WR Brandon Zylstra to a one-year deal. 

    Advice: The one-time CFL standout played all 16 games last season as a special teamer for Carolina. Zylstra has played 24 games over two seasons in Carolina, making 11 receptions for 141 yards while rushing one time for one yard. Zylstra, who led the CFL with 1,687 receiving yards in 2017, makes for a decent backup wideout.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 10:01 am

  • Lions could get a second rounder for Golladay?
    The Athletic's Nick Baumgardner reports a "second-round pick might be on the table" if the Lions trade Kenny Golladay this offseason. 

    Advice: Baumgardner conceded a second round draft pick in exchange for Golladay was a highly optimistic outcome for Detroit, but possible considering his production when healthy. Any team interested in acquiring Golladay would have to overlook his injury-ravaged 2020 season in which he played five games and caught 20 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns. Baumgardner said the Lions signing Golladay to the franchise tender before trading him "feels like a manageable option." With Marvin Jones on his way out of Detroit, Jared Goff could be stuck with one of the league's worst receiver groups if Golladay is traded.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 8:00 am
