  • PIT posts video of Big Ben (elbow) throwing
    The Steelers posted a video of Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) throwing a football.

    Advice: Roethlisberger has a massive beard and was gingerly "throwing" this pigskin, but these are signs of life for the veteran quarterback. He appears to be making real progress after a major surgery last season. Both the Steelers' GM and head coach have expressed public optimism regarding Big Ben's Week 1 outlook. Expect Roethlisberger to inch his way towards training camp before surging up his workload right before the season starts. The Steelers should compete for a playoff spot if Roethlisberger plays at a near pre-injury level, especially if the NFL expands the playoffs to seven teams per conference.

  • Bucs considering two-year deal for Winston
    ESPN's Jenna Laine reports the Bucs have considered a two-year extension for Jameis Winston.

    Advice: Winston would get a fully guaranteed $27 million salary this season — roughly the same the Bucs would pay him under the franchise tag — and a team option for 2021. It's not a player-friendly deal, but re-signing with the Bucs would allow Winston to rehab his value in a scheme that saw him throw for the eighth-most yards in NFL history last year. Winston may also be transition tagged, which would pay him $2.5 million less than being franchised. The Bucs have been linked to Philip Rivers and other free agent options, but Winston returning on a short-term deal has been gaining some traction. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:32 pm

  • Report: Josh Rosen 'likely' to stay in Miami
    Miami Herald's Armando Salguero said it's "likely" that Josh Rosen remains on the Dolphins "barring something unexpected."

    Advice: This wasn't necessarily a formal report but more of a prognostication based on the team's words and actions. It's widely assumed the Dolphins will be eyeing a quarterback with a top pick in this draft, and they just re-signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to be their bridge guy. That leaves Rosen in the shadows once again. Now that Rosen has done nothing in two years with two teams, it's hard to see another team acquiring him with legit draft capital, so all signs point to Rosen staying in Miami as a backup project. The good news is that he's cheap. Rosen has cap hits of $2.1 million and $2.9 million over the next two seasons, plus has a team option in 2022. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:00 am

  • Browns OC to alter Baker Mayfield's footwork
    Browns OC Alex Van Pelt said he will be changing Baker Mayfield's footwork this offseason.

    Advice: One specific change will be in his three-step drops in shotgun. Mayfield currently has his right foot in front, but the new offensive coordinator believes that made his footwork problematic while dropping back, which would then lead to some accuracy issues. There will be other changes to his game and the offense as a whole with the new coaching staff, and we're here for it all. Mayfield regressed in 2019 but has the potential to be a bounce back candidate with his talented supporting cast and new environment in 2020. Ultimately, his ability to react to pressure will determine how his next season goes. Mayfield is a QB2 in early fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:35 am

  • Rep: Flacco plans to play, won't risk health
    Speaking Tuesday, Joe Flacco's agent confirmed he plans to play in 2020 but not at the "risk of his long-term health."

    Advice: Flacco is awaiting a second opinion on his recent "encouraging" MRI. With 35-year-old Flacco's career in its death rattle, he has zero reason to risk his long-term health considering the money he's made, especially since he will have to settle for being someone's backup.

  • Joe Flacco expected to be healthy for 2020
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Broncos expect Joe Flacco (neck) to be healthy for the 2020 season.

    Advice: Fowler makes it clear that Flacco is not in the running to be the Broncos' 2020 starter, only that they believe he will be physically cleared. Per Fowler, Flacco got good news from a recent MRI. Probably out of chances as a starter, Flacco carries a prohibitive $23.65 million cap number. That would have to be slashed for Flacco to return as a backup in Denver. Flacco expressed zero interest in serving as Drew Lock's mentor last summer. He will likely be sent packing. His release would free up $10.05 million in cap space. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:53 am

  • RFA Hill to get 1st- or 2nd-round tender?
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero believes it "stands to reason" that restricted free agent Taysom Hill will get a first- or second-round tender from the Saints.

    Advice: The first-round tender is projected to be in the $4.66 million range, with the second-rounder checking in around $3.27 million. Such a move would almost certainly scare away rival teams from signing Hill to an offer sheet, as it would mean the Saints would get a first- or second-round pick if they declined to match. Despite how much debate Hill is generating on Twitter, we would be stunned if any team but New Orleans valued Hill that highly. We are still skeptical even the Saints do. The primary data point from Hill's 2019 was his lack of passing usage during Drew Brees' five-game absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:55 am

  • Brees announces he'll return for 20th season
    Drew Brees announced via his Instagram that he'll return with the Saints in 2020.

    Advice: "I look forward to the grind and the journey, for the reward at the end will be worth it!!!," Brees wrote in his most recent Instagram post. "Let’s make another run at it!" The full announcement can be viewed in the link below. 2020 will officially count as the 41-year-old's 15th season with the Saints and 20th season in the league. This decision also makes impending free agent Teddy Bridgewater a mortal lock to hit the open market. Brees recently told PFT and Rotoworld he's open to ceding more snaps to Taysom Hill (RFA) if the latter's brought back — a likely domino set to fall with this news officially out the way pre-free agency. Already the NFL's all-time leader in both touchdowns and passing yards, all signs point towards 2020 being Brees' last under center. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:00 am

  • Panthers expect Cam to pass physical in March
    The Athletics' Jourdan Rodrigue reports the Panthers believe QB Cam Newton is likely to pass a physical and be cleared for football activities in March.

    Advice: Rodrigue added that the Panthers are still likely to exercise precaution through spring workouts if Newton remains with the team. It's been awhile since we've seen Newton at full health. His 2018 season was cut short by a bum shoulder that limited his arm strength, while he played just two games in 2019 due to persistent foot problems. There have been few players in the history of the league that offer Newton's elite dual-threat ability, but his inability to stay healthy in recent years is problematic when predicting how the soon to be 31-year-old QB will perform later in his career.

  • Report: Bridgewater to have a 'strong market'
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Teddy Bridgewater is expected to have a "strong market" in free agency and could land a multi-year deal.

    Advice: Fowler added, "Multiple teams expect Bridgewater to have a strong free agency market as a starting or bridge quarterback for a team in transition. Widely expected to be on the move unless Drew Brees retires." Bridgewater deserves credit for posting above-average rankings in adjusted yards per attempt (15th), QB Rating (11th), TD Rate (13th) and completion rate (6th) among 38 QBs to start at least five games in 2019. Of course, the Saints did offer Bridgewater just about the most QB-friendly offense possible, as he was seldom asked to do more than check the ball down to Alvin Kamara or Michael Thomas. Either way: Bridgewater figures to command borderline starter-caliber money from someone in 2020. The Saints will likely need to make a decision between keeping Bridgewater or Taysom Hill if Drew Brees wishes to continue playing in 2020. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:13 pm

  • Tomlin expects Big Ben to be ready for Week 1
    Speaking Monday morning on ESPN's First Take, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed he expects Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) to be ready for Week 1.

    Advice: "I have no hesitation," said Tomlin, who also addressed Myles Garrett's assertion that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur in their altercation last year. "This guy is the ultimate competitor. He dropped the gauntlet down. He made the statement he's coming back." Roethlisberger was lost to season-ending elbow surgery early in the 2019 campaign and still isn't "doing anything," according to Tomlin, though the long-tenured Pittsburgh coach fully expects to have Ben in the saddle for Week 1. Even without their star quarterback, the Steelers still finished a respectable 8-8 last season. They should be back in the playoff hunt if Roethlisberger returns to his pre-injury form in 2020.

  • Rudolph considering legal action vs. Garrett?
    Mason Rudolph called Myles Garrett's assertion that he used a racial slur during an altercation last season a "bold-faced lie" and "1000% false."

    Advice: "I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial slur," tweeted Rudolph. "This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character." Garrett was suspended for the final six games of 2019 after bashing Rudolph over the head with his own helmet, a response he said was triggered by Rudolph's use of a racial epithet. Despite there being no audio to back up his claim, Garrett repeated his assertion in a recent interview with ESPN's Mina Kimes. Not only has Rudolph denied the accusation, but it appears the Steelers backup is prepared to pursue legal action against Garrett. "Mr. Garrett maliciously uses this false allegation to coax sympathy, hoping to be excused for what is clearly inexcusable behavior," Rudolph's lawyer, Timothy Younger, shared in a statement Saturday. "He is now exposed to legal liability." Despite Garrett's reinstatement, this incident is a long way from being resolved. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:06 am

  • 'No movement' in Patriots' talks with Brady
    ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss confirms the team has had "no movement" in contract talks with impending free agent Tom Brady.

    Advice: The Patriots only have a month to hammer out a deal with Brady before the legal tampering period begins on March 16. The first-time free agent has already drawn interest from the Raiders, who are reportedly prepared to offer Brady a two-year, $60-million contract to be the team's headliner upon their move to Las Vegas. Reiss still puts the Patriots' odds of retaining Brady at 80 percent, though the next month of rumors and speculation promises to be a wild ride. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:02 am

  • Bucs yet to make decision on Winston's future
    Coach Bruce Arians said the Bucs have yet to make a decision on Jameis Winston's future with the team.

    Advice: "Really nothing has changed," Arians said. "You get about three days to decide. The legal tampering period. Is somebody going to get let go? What's the trade values? It's really monotonous right now because you don't have any answers." The Bucs have "legitimate interest" in Philip Rivers, who moved to Florida this offseason. They've also been linked to Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater, and Ryan Tannehill, but whether they view Rivers or any of the other options as upgrades on Winston remains to be seen. With Winston contract talks going nowhere, signs continue to point to the Bucs going in a different direction. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:00 am

  • Report: Raiders to offer Brady 2 years, $60M
    Sports reporter Larry Fitzgerald Sr. has been "told" the Raiders are prepared to offer impending free agent Tom Brady a two-year, $60 million contract.

    Advice: Fitzgerald Sr. doesn't have an extensive track record of breaking news, but he's a longtime member in the sports media world, based out of Minnesota. He's not the type of person to just throw something against the wall. The Raiders have been linked to Brady multiple times since the end of the Patriots' season, with coach Jon Gruden and owner Mark Davis looking to make a splash as the team embarks on Las Vegas. Brady would certainly qualify. It will likely take serious money to lure Brady away from Foxboro. This offer would qualify as such. The Brady free agency should be fascinating.

  • Coach Lynn believes Tyrod could be a starter
    Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Tyrod Taylor could be the starting quarterback in 2020.

    Advice: "Tyrod Taylor is a heck of a quarterback. We couldn't have a better backup right now, and now he has an opportunity to maybe step up into a starting role." With Philip Rivers out of the picture, Taylor is currently slated as the top option for the Bolts. Of course, the Chargers' No. 6 overall pick puts them in the mix for a top-end rookie quarterback, but Taylor being the quarterback to open the season is becoming more and more likely. Tom Brady, Jameis Winston, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, and other veterans are also options. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:23 pm

  • Signs are 'good' right now for Big Ben (arm)
    When asked about Ben Roethlisberger's (elbow) recovery, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said, "All signs are good at this point."

    Advice: Big Ben's recovery appears to be on track, but the team will have a much clearer idea of his health after his "significant" checkup on February 21. The medical staff should know how realistic a full recovery is and when it's realistic to have their franchise QB back on the field. Pittsburgh wants to run it back with Big Ben as the starter for at least one more year, but they remain a candidate to take a Day 2 quarterback in April's draft as long as Big Ben's health is up in the air. Roethlisberger will be entering his age-38 season this September. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:46 am

  • Lions GM says Stafford trade rumors are false
    Lions GM Bob Quinn said that trade rumors surrounding QB Matthew Stafford are "100% false!"

    Advice: It would cost the Lions $32 million against the cap for Stafford to *not* be on their roster in 2020. He also thrived in his first season under new OC Darrell Bevell before breaking his back. Any rumors suggesting Stafford could be on the move are assuredly false and erroneous.
