Ross absolutely tore up the AAF last winter before signing with the Panthers but failing to make the team out of training camp. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:42 pm

    Advice: Headlining coach Bob Stoops' roster is QB Landry Jones, who was the first player to sign an XFL contract. He injured his knee earlier this month, however, and is in danger of missing the start of the season, which kicks off February 8. Other players of note for Dallas are RB Cameron Artis-Payne, RB Lance Dunbar, and WR Jazz Ferguson. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:36 pm

  • Kittle has played with torn labrum since 2018
    Speaking in a Monday podcast, George Kittle revealed that he has been playing with a torn labrum in his right shoulder since 2018.

    Advice: Kittle said the injury occurred in a 2018 preseason game. He stated, "So I dislocated my shoulder last year ... and my labrum is completely torn. So I don’t get surgery on it — [The protective sleeve] basically helps me, so it doesn’t hurt all the time." Kittle added that there's "no chance" he gets surgery on the shoulder because "I can't miss those workout days, man." It sounds like Kittle is enough of a warrior to continue to play through the pain, though it would probably be in his best long-term interest to get the problem fixed one of these offseasons.

  • Kareem Hunt admitted he would fail drug test
    In a police video of Kareem Hunt's Jan. 21 traffic stop obtained by TMZ Sports, Hunt admitted he would "fail an NFL drug test if one were administered to him at the time."

    Advice: Emotional throughout a lengthy conversation with the officer who pulled him over, Hunt said he had been "fighting a lot of (stuff) lately," and that his release from the Chiefs "still hurts me to this day." Hunt eventually admitted that the marijuana in his vehicle was his, but the officer decided to let him off with only a speeding ticket. The officer was aware of Hunt's off-the-field history, at one point even bringing up the Ray Rice incident while reminding Hunt of his second chance. It is unclear if the NFL will take action. Hunt has never been suspended under the substance-abuse policy. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:53 am

  • Glazer: Chargers have 'moved on' from Rivers
    Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Chargers have "moved on from Philip Rivers."

    Advice: The news isn't exactly shocking, as there's been buzz from numerous reporters about Rivers taking his talents elsewhere in 2020. The father of nine also recently moved to Florida, which matches rumors of a potential landing spot in Tampa Bay. It remains to be seen how many franchises will be lining up to land the 38-year-old QB, as Rivers turned the ball over on far too many occasions in 2019 and doesn't seem to have the same arm talent these days to consistently threaten opposing defenses down the field.

  • Lamar Jackson wins Pro Bowl offensive MVP
    Lamar Jackson was named Pro Bowl Offensive MVP after throwing for 185 yards and two touchdowns in the AFC's win over the NFC.

    Advice: Jackson led the AFC team to a 38-33 victory. He's the youngest quarterback to start in the Pro Bowl and now the youngest MVP. Teammate Mark Andrews caught nine passes, a Pro Bowl record for a tight end. Davante Adams led the NFC with six receptions and converted two of them into touchdowns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:50 pm

  • Brees to take 'month or so' to ponder future
    Impending free agent Drew Brees said he'll take "a month or so" before making a decision on his NFL future.

    Advice: Brees will compete in Sunday's Pro Bowl in Orlando before taking a month to unwind. At that point, the 41-year-old should have a clearer idea of his NFL future. "I'll kind of lay low for a little bit, get away and then assess," said Brees, who posted a career-high 116.3 quarterback rating in 2019, his 19th NFL season and 14th in the Big Easy. "I kind of have a process in mind." If he does return for a 20th season, the NFL's all-time leader in both passing yards and touchdowns confirms he'd only play for the Saints. With Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill both headed for free agency and Brees at least entertaining the idea of retirement, New Orleans could conceivably be looking at an entirely new quarterback room in 2020.

  • Will Fuller undergoes sports hernia surgery
    Will Fuller underwent sports hernia surgery.

    Advice: Fuller needed to repair a groin injury that slowed him down at times during the 2019 season. Fuller has been electric and a true difference-maker when healthy but his soft-tissue injuries have made him a boom-or-bust asset. The speedy receiver has vowed to investigate these soft-tissue problems this offseason. Hopefully Fuller can have a fully healthy training camp. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:19 pm

  • Packers likely to release Jimmy Graham
    The Green Bay Press-Gazette expects the Packers to release Jimmy Graham.

    Advice: Graham has done little in his two seasons with the Packers, scoring just five touchdowns and averaging under 34 yards per game. He's played through multiple injuries despite not missing any time and has clearly lost a step entering his age 34-season. It should be an easy decision for the Packers to move on from Graham this offseason. Releasing Graham would clear $8 million in cap space. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:04 am

  • Robert Kraft 'plans' to bring back Tom Brady
    Owner Robert Kraft told TMZ Sports the Patriots "plan" to bring back Tom Brady.

    Advice: ESPN's Adam Schefter adds the Patriots expect to know if Brady's returning before the legal tampering period in mid-March. That doesn't come as a surprise, though there's still some uncertainty on where Brady will be playing in 2020. It's not impossible the Patriots move on from a declining Brady, but Kraft's comments suggest he'll remain in New England for at least one more season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:20 am

  • D.J. Chark expects to have similar role
    D.J. Chark expects to have a similar role under new OC Jay Gruden.

    Advice: Chark had a breakout year under ex-OC John DeFilippo, leading the Jags in receiving yards (1,008) and touchdowns (8). His targets could take a hit in a Gruden offense that features more quick passes, though he's clearly established as Jacksonville's No. 1 option on the outside. Chark's second-year leap was encouraging, but playing in a new scheme with questions at quarterback, he's not a lock to build on his 2019 success. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:17 pm

  • Albert Wilson candidat to restructure
    The Miami Herald considers Albert Wilson a candidate to restructure his contract.

    Advice: Wilson is owed a non-guaranteed $9.5 million in the final year of his deal. That's too much for a slot receiver coming off a season where he missed three games. Wilson will need to accept a pay cut if he wants to stay in Miami. The Dolphins would eat $1.3 million in dead money if they outright release Wilson. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:23 pm

  • Travis Kelce (knee) returns to practice
    Travis Kelce (knee) resumed practicing Friday.

    Advice: Kelce spent Thursday as a spectator, though his absence was likely more maintenance than anything. He'll be ready to go full throttle when the Chiefs oppose San Francisco in next week's Super Bowl. The 30-year-old exploded for three touchdowns in the Divisional Round but was limited to just three catches for 30 yards in last week's triumph over Tennessee. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:57 am

  • Jimmy Graham not weighing retirement yet
    Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said it's his "understanding" that Jimmy Graham wants to continue playing in 2020.

    Advice: Gutekunst stopped short of saying the 33-year-old will be back with the Packers, though he does have one year remaining on his current deal. Clearly on the back nine of his career, Graham has not been a difference-maker in his two years with Green Bay, compiling a tepid 93-1,083-5 receiving line on 149 targets during that span (33.8 yards per game). Cutting Graham, who is due an $8 million base salary in 2020, would put Green Bay on the hook for $3.36 million in dead money. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:43 am

  • Kareem Hunt avoids marijuana charges
    Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal confirms Kareem Hunt was pulled over and cited for a traffic violation Tuesday in Rocky River, Ohio.

    Advice: Police discovered three "small amounts" of marijuana in the vehicle, which Hunt claimed belonged to his brother. Hunt, who was driving a car registered under his mother's name, was cited for speeding (he was clocked at 77 mph when the posted speed limit was 60) but avoided marijuana charges. Hunt can't afford any more slip-ups after the off-field scandal that led to his departure from Kansas City in 2018, though it doesn't sound like anything will come of this particular incident. If he can walk the straight and narrow, the former rushing champ should land a starting job when he enters free agency this offseason. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:58 am

  • Travis Kelce (knee) misses practice Thursday
    Travis Kelce (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday.

    Advice: Kelce was able to get in a limited practice yesterday but was downgraded today. His knee is worth monitoring over the next 10 days, although it would be a massive surprise if he wasn't ready to go for the Super Bowl. Expect Kelce's practice reps to be limited in an attempt to get his knee as close to 100% as possible. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:05 pm

  • Drew Brees plans to re-sign with New Orleans
    Speaking on his upcoming free agency, Drew Brees confirmed he has no plans to leave New Orleans.

    Advice: "I've played with them 14 years," said Brees at Thursday's Pro Bowl festivities in Orlando. "It's not a matter of if it gets done but when." The 41-year-old admitted "at this stage" of his career it's not a "given that I'm coming back every year," though it does appear Brees will return for at least 2020. Already the NFL's all-time leader in both touchdowns and passing yards, Brees told NFL Network's Jane Slater he'll "always be a Saint." Brees would assuredly draw widespread interest on the open market, though it's hard to envision him leaving the Big Easy, especially after these comments. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:10 pm

  • Saints have same outlook on Brees' contract
    Saints GM Mickey Loomis said the organization's view on bringing Drew Brees back is "no different than it's been the last few years."

    Advice: "It's easy to take him for granted yet I don't take him for granted," Loomis said. "Look, if any of us are surprised at what he does, then we're just not very smart." 41-year-old Brees finished with a league-high 74.3 percent completion rate last year, rebounding from a mid-season thumb injury to toss 24 touchdowns and seven picks over 11 games. New Orleans clearly sounds intent on letting Brees decide his own fate with the franchise, likely pinning him under center in the Superdome in 2020. He was also reportedly contacted by an unknown network to transition full-time into a television game analyst role. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:54 am

  • 'A lot of buzz' about Rivers landing in Tampa
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports there's "a lot of buzz" about Tampa Bay being a possible landing spot for Philip Rivers.

    Advice: Rivers recently packed up his home in San Diego and moved cross country to Florida to be closer to his family (in Alabama). That doesn't necessarily make the Bucs his first choice, but the declining 38-year-old impending free agent will undoubtedly have fewer options than past years following his fewest touchdowns thrown (23) since 2007. Rivers isn't the worst one-year stopgap if Tampa Bay fails to iron out a deal with Jameis Winston. Tom Brady, Ryan Tannehill, Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater will also likely crop up at some point as potential fill-ins under center. Rotoworld.com Jan 20, 10:32 am

  • Reduced to blocking, Kittle catches one pass
    George Kittle posted a 19-yard reception on his lone target in the 49ers' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

    Advice: Reduced to run blocking for the 49ers' dominant ground game this postseason, Kittle will head into Super Bowl LIV with just four catches for 35 yards across two playoff appearances. He should be needed for more against a Chiefs defense that coughed up the 11th most tight end fantasy points this season, though perhaps the 49ers' running game is simply too locked in. The Chiefs are far more vulnerable on the ground than through the air. Rotoworld.com Jan 19, 7:14 pm

  • Jimmy Graham posts 59 yards in NFCCG loss
    Jimmy Graham caught 4-of-5 targets for 59 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: Graham appeared to score a 43-yard touchdown in the opening seconds of the fourth quarter but was ruled down at the one-yard line. He heads into the offseason with 109 yards over his past two games, his second best two-game stretch of 2019-20. That tells you all you need to know about where 33-year-old Graham's game is at this point. Still under contract for one more season, Graham has never established on-field chemistry with Aaron Rodgers and has little explosion left in his legs. Third-round rookie Jace Sternberger saw his playing time increase down the stretch. Cutting Graham would clear $8 million in cap space while leaving behind just $3.36 million in dead money.

  • Travis Kelce totals 3/30 receiving in CC win
    Travis Kelce caught 3-of-4 targets for 30 yards in Kansas City's AFC Championship win over the Titans.

    Advice: A one-on-one matchup with Kevin Byard proved to be a much tougher task than dealing with Jahleel Addae and Justin Reid. Kelce sprinkled in a couple of his catches in the first half but was ultimately shutdown for the final two quarters once the Titans shifted to more zone and double-coverage to contain him and Tyreek Hill (5/67/2) in the slot and along the perimeter. Kelce still made his impact felt with two massive seal-blocks that sprung both Damien Williams and Hill open for their scores that began from behind the line of scrimmage. One would imagine Kelce is looked to often in Super Bowl 54 in Miami. Rotoworld.com Jan 19, 4:08 pm

  • Rivers moves family from San Diego to Florida
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter report Philip Rivers has "permanently" moved his family from San Diego to Florida.

    Advice: Rivers, who hails from Alabama, is moving cross country to be closer to his family. "What this means football-wise is to be determined but it was time for us to move back closer to home," Rivers said in a text message to ESPN Sunday morning. This could be a sign the long-time Charger is preparing to play elsewhere in 2020. The 38-year-old Rivers will soon join a loaded free-agent class that includes fellow quarterbacks Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Jameis Winston, Ryan Tannehill, Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater.

  • Tom Brady to be 'methodical' in free agency
    According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Tom Brady will take a "methodical approach" to his upcoming free agency.

    Advice: Brady is prepared to hit the open market for the first time in his 20-year career. While a return to New England remains in play for the future Hall of Famer, the 42-year-old plans to "do his due diligence to assess all realistic possibilities." La Canfora adds that Brady has not lost his love for the game and still anticipates playing until he's 45. The three-time MVP is reportedly "eager" to mentor a young quarterback in hopes of leaving his next organization—or his current one if he remains in Foxboro—in good hands when he retires. Brady's free agency will undoubtedly be among the offseason's top storylines. Rotoworld.com Jan 19, 7:30 am

  • Kittle (ankle) not listed on final report
    49ers TE George Kittle wasn't listed on the team's final injury report.

    Advice: Kittle practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. He's good to go for the 49ers' NFC Championship matchup against the Packers. Kittle is already redefining what the modern TE is capable of achieving, as he set PFF's 10-year record for most yards per route run in 2019 with 3.1. The Packers ranked just 23rd in explosive pass-play rate allowed this season, while the 49ers created big plays in the passing game at the league's single-highest rate. Rotoworld.com Jan 17, 1:38 pm

  • Travis Kelce (knee) good to go for Sunday
    Coach Andy Reid confirmed TE Travis Kelce (knee) will play Sunday against the Titans.

    Advice: There wasn't much doubt that Kelce would suit up this week, but Reid did note that the Chiefs' stud TE is feeling better than he did before their Divisional Round win over the Texans. The main focus of the Titans could be slowing down Kelce. Only the Cardinals (16) and Browns (10) allowed more touchdowns to opposing TEs than the Titans (9) this season. Ball-hawking FS Kevin Byard will be needed more than ever to help slow down this passing game. Byard has 17 interceptions over the past three seasons; nobody else has reached even 14.
