  • Report: Greg Olsen offered broadcasting job
    The Athletic's Richard Deitsch reports that FOX Sports has "made it clear" it will hire Greg Olsen as an announcer if he decides to retire.

    Advice: Olsen has already served as a guest analyst for FOX for several years, so it would be a natural transition for the soon-to-be 35-year-old. During his test gigs, Olsen has been much better in the booth than fellow tight end Jason Witten was on Monday Night Football. Olsen finally shook his persistent foot woes in 2019 but had his least productive season since 2011. He has strongly hinted that he is leaning toward retirement. Rotoworld.com 44 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:38 am

  • Dolphins work out free agent RB Alex Collins
    Dolphins worked out free agent RB Alex Collins.

    Advice: The team also worked out Grey Cup winner CFL QB Chris Streveler. It's the first we've heard from Collins since his last workout with the Seahawks in December. Just two seasons removed from leading the Ravens in rushing with 973 yards, the Dolphins are arguably the best landing spot for Collins given their leniency on low-cost upside talent.

  • Brown freed from house arrest restrictions
    Free agent WR Antonio Brown was freed from house arrest restrictions on Tuesday.

    Advice: His $110,000 bail remains in place stemming from his arrest last week on charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an occupied conveyance and criminal mischief. He must also surrender his passport and submit to a mental health evaluation (along with random drug testing) while traveling freely around the country to fulfill contractual obligations. Outside of said obligations which have already been booked, it's doubtful Brown lands further opportunity elsewhere while awaiting trial. It would not be surprising if his playing days have come and gone altogether. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 am

  • 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 Yesterday, 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 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 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.

    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

That doesn't come as a surprise, though there's still some uncertainty on where Brady will be playing in 2020.

  • 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

    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

    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

  • Antonio Brown granted $110,000 bond
    Free agent WR Antonio Brown was granted $110,000 bond Friday morning following his arrest Thursday night on charges of burglary with battery, burglary of an occupied conveyance and criminal mischief.

    Advice: He finally turned himself in to Hollywood, FL police after an arrest warrant was issued Wednesday. Brown spent the night in Broward County Jail but will be released once the paperwork is filed for his bail, likely either Friday or early Saturday. The charges stem from an alleged confrontation with the driver of a tractor-trailer moving truck at Brown's home earlier this week. Brown's trainer, Glen Holt, was arrested on one count of burglary with battery and later released on $20,000 bond. Per terms of his bond agreement, the former Steeler will be subject to GPS monitoring, drug and alcohol tests, a mental health evaluation and will also be required to surrender his passport and any guns in his possession. Recently dropped by mega-agent Drew Rosenhaus, the 31-year-old's life is unraveling before our eyes. At this point, we can probably stop referring to Brown as a "free agent" and simply call him a former NFL receiver because his playing days are assuredly over. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:23 am

    Advice: An arrest warrant was put out on Brown for his involvement in a potential burglary and assault on a moving truck worker. The police attempted to reach Brown at his house regarding the case, but Brown ran inside, locked the door, and refused to come out. Tonight, he changed his mind and turned himself in. Brown is expected to be kept in custody until he meets with a judge on Friday morning. At this point, it would be a total surprise if an NFL team had an interest in signing Brown.

    Antonio Brown is expected to turn himself in to the Hollywood, Fla. police after a warrant was put out for his arrest on Tuesday.

    Advice: Brown initially barricaded himself in his Hollywood home after the police issued a warrant for him on felony burglary and battery charges. Brown allegedly threw rocks at his moving truck driver before forcing his way into the vehicle, striking the driver, and taking items from the truck.

    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."

Despite his injury, the Niners are hopeful he'll be available next week for Super Bowl LIV in Miami.

    Advice: Cooper told NFL Network's Jane Slater that his agent has yet to open talks with Dallas, though it's clear the fifth-year wideout feels most comfortable in Big D. Though his team underachieved, the 25-year-old was a bright spot for the Cowboys in 2019, setting career-highs in both yards (1,179) and touchdowns (eight). The Cowboys have some tough financial decisions ahead of them with Cooper, Dak Prescott and Byron Jones all slated to hit free agency, though luckily they'll have the fifth-most cap space to work with ($81.06 million).

  • AJG on franchise tag: It's not the best thing
    Impending free agent A.J. Green implied he'd prefer to avoid the franchise tag.

    Advice: "A franchise tag is not the best thing," Green conceded, though the seven-time Pro Bowler also added he's not in a position to turn down $18 million. "I love the city of Cincinnati. I love the team," Green continued. "I always wanted to be here my whole career and I feel like we have the pieces if I were to stay healthy." The 31-year-old never got on the field in 2019, missing all 16 games following offseason ankle surgery. There seems to be mutual interest in reaching a long-term deal, though if talks stall, the Bengals could buy themselves more time by assigning Green the franchise tag, even if it's not his preference.

McCown turns 40 this summer and wants to keep sticking around as a player before getting into the coaching ranks.

Holt was already arrested and posted $20,000 bond. Police have allegedly tried to contact AB multiple times, but he instead retreated inside his residence, barricading himself behind locked doors. Brown allegedly pelted the driver with a rock before then forcing his way into the truck, striking the individual, and then taking the items off the truck.

  • 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.

    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.

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Tevin Coleman suffered a dislocated shoulder in the NFC Championship game against the Packers.

    Advice: Shanahan said Coleman got it popped back in and has a chance to play in the Super Bowl in 13 days. Raheem Mostert earned as much work as he can handle following his massive performance against Green Bay, but Coleman could perhaps be in line for a few touches. Overall, it's good news for Coleman after he had to be carted off. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:31 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. Rotoworld.com Jan 20, 10:32 am

  • 49ers not ruling Coleman out for Super Bowl
    Speaking following Sunday's NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan refused to rule Tevin Coleman (shoulder) out for Super Bowl LIV.

    Advice: Coleman's injury was tough to watch on replay, but initial testing evidently returned good news. "I’m hoping he’ll be all right next week," Shanahan said. "I don’t totally know yet. I know he’s not ruled out or anything. I think there will be a good chance (for him to go)." Raheem Mostert was literally historically good in Coleman's absence vs. the Pack, but Coleman led the Niners' attack in the Divisional Round. The 49ers will do most of their install this week but will not be required to issue official injury reports until next week. DFS players will have to sit tight for the time being, though Mostert will obviously be the priority play even if Coleman is active. Rotoworld.com Jan 19, 8:44 pm

  • 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.

  • Tevin Coleman carted with shoulder injury
    Tevin Coleman was carted from Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers with a shoulder injury and will not return.

    Advice: Coleman's arm got twisted awkwardly at the end of a red zone run. It had the looks of a serious issue. An upper-body carting could be anything from a separated shoulder to torn biceps. Coming off a scintillating Divisional Round appearance, Coleman had taken a backseat to Raheem Mostert before departing. With Jeff Wilson inactive, Mostert and Matt Breida will be fed heavily in Coleman's absence. Rotoworld.com Jan 19, 4:30 pm

  • 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

  • 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. Rotoworld.com 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. Rotoworld.com Jan 19, 7:30 am
