  • Prescott 'confident' that deal will get done
    Dak Prescott told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport he has "confidence" the Cowboys will extend him.

    Advice: Extending Prescott is the Cowboys' top priority, but the sides have yet to get anything done. That's still fully expected to happen before the start of free agency, though it's possible Dallas may have to use the franchise tag on Prescott while working out a long-term deal. Prescott is going to command the $30-plus million annually that Russell Wilson and Carson Wentz got last offseason. Locking up Prescott will allow the Cowboys to turn their attention to re-signing Amari Cooper and Byron Jones. 20 minutes ago

  • Glazer clarifies report on Rivers' future
    Speaking Tuesday, FOX's Jay Glazer clarified his Monday comments on Philip Rivers, saying that while he believes Rivers will not be back with the team, he did not mean to officially report as such.

    Advice: Basically, Glazer said he was taken out of context during his appearance on Colin Cowherd's show. Glazer is amongst the most error-free reporters in all of football, so he is worth taking at his word that it was not his intention to formally report that Rivers and the Bolts are done. ESPN's Eric Williams has also reported that "all options remain available" with regards to the Chargers and their longtime franchise player. Despite Glazer's clarification, all signs continue to point toward Rivers being done in Southern California. Yesterday, 1:11 pm

  • Hunt: Mahomes deal might not come in 2020
    Speaking Tuesday, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said the team may not extend Patrick Mahomes until 2021.

    Advice: Mahomes' rookie deal is first eligible to be extended this offseason. "There will be a right time sometime in the next 12-15 months to extend Patrick, and when I say right time, I mean right time for both the player and the club," Hunt said. "I don't want to say necessarily it has to be this offseason, but I will say that it's a priority to get him done." Mahomes is under team control for two more years, but there is not much incentive for the Chiefs to wait. Whenever the deal is done, Mahomes is going to become the highest-paid player in league history by a staggering margin. It would be better to get it out of the way sooner rather than later. Perhaps potential changes to the CBA are looming in Hunt's mind. Yesterday, 11:38 am

    The XFL's Los Angeles Wildcats announced their 52-man roster Monday.

    Advice: The Wildcats are coached by Winston Moss, with Norm Chow serving as the OC. Chow, of course, was USC's OC back in their heyday with Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush under Pete Carroll. Headlining the Wildcats' roster are QB Josh Johnson, WR Nelson Spruce, WR Tre McBride, 6-foot-9 former Baylor DE Shawn Oakman, ex-Lions DE Devin Taylor, and K Nick Novak. Monday, 3:53 pm

Headlining the squad are QB Connor Cook, RB De'Angelo Henderson, former Giants RB Andre Williams, WR Sammie Coates, CB Charles James, and 28-year-old former Panthers second-round DE Kony Ealy. Cook was a fourth-round pick of the Raiders in 2016 after playing his college ball at Michigan State. Monday, 3:46 pm

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. Monday, 3:36 pm

  • 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. Sunday, 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.

  • 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. Saturday, 8:20 am

  • 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. Thursday, 2:10 pm

  • Eagles were interested in McCown as coach
    The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports the Eagles expressed interest in impending free agent Josh McCown for a position on the coaching staff, but McCown isn't ready to retire.

    Advice: McLane adds McCown was possibly even in contention for the Eagles' still-open OC job. McCown turns 40 this summer and wants to keep sticking around as a player before getting into the coaching ranks. However, he seems like the rare case of a player who would be able to immediately transition to the booth and/or sideline as a coach. It's something that appears to be in his future if/when he decides to make the move. Wednesday, 6:36 pm

  • Eli Manning to announce retirement on Friday
    Eli Manning announced his retirement from the NFL after 16 seasons.

    Advice: The 39-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP will reportedly hang up his cleats with a 117-117 record over 16 seasons with the Giants. He quietly walks away with the seventh-most passing yards (57,023) and passing touchdowns (366) in league history, somehow never missing a game due to injury. Though his play clearly tailed off in his waning seasons before inevitably passing the torch to No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones, Manning's perfect 38-yard rope to Mario Manningham in Super Bowl XLVI and, of course, his 32-yard strike to David Tyree's helmet in Super Bowl XLII will both live in perpetuity among February highlight reels. His two Super Bowl rings likely make him a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame despite conflicting opinions. Wednesday, 1:55 pm

  • Dolphins 'fully expect' Fitzpatrick to return
    Dolphins GM Chris Grier said he "fully expects" Ryan Fitzpatrick to be back in 2020.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick would account for $8 million on Miami's books if he's on their roster in 2020 and it sounds as if the team has no interest in parting ways. The 37-year-old performed better than expected given the circumstances, posting four-year highs in passing yards (3,529), passing touchdowns (20), and rushing yards (243) behind the Fins' atrocious O-line play. With only one year left on his contract, the Dolphins are fully expected to draft a prospect and develop him behind the scenes (and behind Fitzpatrick) for a full season before thrusting him into the fire under center.

  • 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. Wednesday, 11:54 am

    Titans signed QB Logan Woodside, DE Amani Bledsoe, RB Dalyn Dawkins, LB Nigel Harris, TE Parker Hesse, C Daniel Munyer, DB Kareem Orr, OG David Quessenberry, WR Trevion Thompson, and RB Shaun Wilson to reserve/future contracts.

    Advice: Woodside spent the year on the Titans' practice squad after giving his career a bit of a jolt in the defunct AAF with the San Antonio Commanders. Dawkins is the nephew of Brian Dawkins and had a small taste of the NFL at one point this year when Derrick Henry missed Week 16. Wilson appeared in five games for the Bucs in 2018. Tuesday, 6:50 pm

    Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said extending Dak Prescott is the "top priority" this offseason.

    Advice: The Cowboys are deep in talks with Prescott but have yet to get a deal done. That should happen soon, though the franchise tag still remains an option. Dallas has already said they view Prescott as their quarterback of the future. Prescott is likely to command $30-plus million annually. Tuesday, 1:07 pm

  • '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. Monday, 10:32 am

  • Rodgers saves face with 326 yards, two scores
    Aaron Rodgers completed 31-of-39 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Packers' 37-20, NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: The Packers got buried by the 49ers' running game in the first half, falling behind 27-0. A Rodgers lost fumble on a botched snap was essentially a game-ending development. As was the case much of the time in 2019, Rodgers lacked aggression before the break, prioritizing avoiding mistakes over hunting for big plays. Of course, it was often hard to blame him, as Packers pass catchers not named Davante Adams frequently appeared to have no idea where they were going this season. That includes tonight. After failing to address their receiver corps last offseason, it will be an absolute must for the Packers this time around. Although he is no longer the mover he once was, Rodgers maintains jaw-dropping arm talent. His advanced 2019 stats tell the tale of an overly cautious quarterback, but a supporting cast reboot could easily have him on the comeback trail in 2020. Jan 19, 6:48 pm

  • Mahomes, Chiefs punch ticket to Super Bowl 54
    Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-35 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns, adding eight scrambles for 53 yards and a rushing score in Kansas City's Conference Championship victory over the Titans.

    Advice: Trailing 17-7 through the first quarter, Kansas City and Mahomes miraculously rattled off three consecutive scores drives to take a commanding 21-17 lead into the half. The team would inevitably score 28 unanswered points, including a 27-yard touchdown scramble where Mahomes seemingly tightroped the left sideline while averting spying LB Rashaan Evans and dashing ahead to gift the Chiefs their first-half lead. In all, Mahomes and the Chiefs' O finished the afternoon with scoring drives of 88, 86, 74, 73, and 63 yards, seeing both Tyreek Hill (5/67/2) and Sammy Watkins (7/114/1) get loose over the top of Tennessee's secondary. If there's a way to stop the Chiefs' aerial attack, both the Texans and Titans didn't unveil the blueprint. Super Bowl 54 will be the city of Kansas City's first title appearance in the last 50 years. Jan 19, 3:11 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. Jan 19, 7:30 am
