  • Report: Kenyan Drake asking for $10M AAV
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Kenyan Drake is seeking $8-$10 million annually.

    Advice: That would be top-five money. Drake has never shown more than flashes outside of an eight-game stretch with the Cardinals, but teams may be willing to overpay for a 26-year-old coming off career highs. The Cardinals can franchise Drake, but his long-term demands could price him out of Arizona. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:10 pm

  • Packers set to meet with Aaron Jones' agent
    ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are scheduled to meet with Aaron Jones' agent to begin discussions on a new deal.

    Advice: Currently set to make $2.19 million on the final year of his contract, Jones and the Packers are clearly getting ahead of what could be an intriguing situation to monitor this summer. Entering merely his age-26 season, Jones' 19 regular season touchdowns were tied for the second-most in Green Bay's historic franchise history last year, which not so coincidently occurred on a career-high 285 touches. Barring blatant signs of an impending holdout, Jones will undoubtedly come off draft boards as a first-round pick in Best-Ball leagues throughout the spring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 am

  • Walton arrested for fifth time in past year
    Ex-Bengals and Dolphins RB Mark Walton was arrested early Thursday morning following a "verbal dispute with the mother of his child."

    Advice: Per the police report, there was "no physical contact between Walton and the woman." The arrest is Walton's fifth in the past 12 months. Walton has been previously accused of "punching his five-week pregnant girlfriend several times in the face and head." Although he is only 22 years old, Walton's NFL career is over.

  • Keim: David Johnson 'a guy we still value'
    Speaking Tuesday, Cardinals GM Steve Keim said David Johnson is "a guy we still value."

    Advice: "I think because of the success that Kenyan (Drake) had, because of the success Chase (Edmonds) had, I think that's something that will be a chip on his shoulder," Keim said of his highly-paid back. "He's going to want to come back and play well and again because of his skill-set. ... We certainly think he can jump back in and do some good things for us." The reality is, the decision has already been made for Arizona, as releasing Johnson would be cost-prohibitive. The Cards clearly want to re-sign Kenyan Drake, but Johnson's deal might make it impossible. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:21 pm

  • Carson (hip) expected to be ready for Week 1
    Chris Carson (hip) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

    Advice: That would seem to mean Carson is questionable for the beginning of training camp. Coach Pete Carroll once again emphasized Tuesday that Carson avoided a fracture and surgery. Carson's injury seems less serious than Rashaad Penny's, but is major all the same. Backfield-obsessed Carroll might need to add another body to his banged up running back corps.

  • Rashaad Penny expected to begin camp on PUP
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects Rashaad Penny (ACL) to begin training camp on the PUP list.

    Advice: It's hardly a surprise considering Penny suffered "more than just a normal ACL tear" in December, but it's notable that not even Carroll was willing to say Penny might be ready for camp. We would consider Penny doubtful for Week 1, and a strong candidate for reserve/PUP, which would cost him six games. Chris Carson (hip), meanwhile, is without a timeline for a return but is expected to be ready for Week 1. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:48 pm

  • SF will ask Jerick McKinnon to take pay cut
    49ers GM John Lynch confirmed the team will ask Jerick McKinnon to take a pay cut.

    Advice: For his part, McKinnon has already signaled a willingness, saying after the Super Bowl he would be "willing to do whatever" to remain in San Francisco. McKinnon is currently due $6.5 million after carrying the ball zero times in two years as a 49er. Going on 28, McKinnon's outright release would free up $4.55 million in cap space.

  • Jets unsure if Bell will participate in OTAs
    The Jets are unsure if Le'Veon Bell will participate in the team's offseason program.

    Advice: "It’s not a huge deal," coach Adam Gase claimed. Gase has gone out of his way to make it clear he wouldn't mind if Bell were traded, but the running back's contract is almost impossible to move. Bell holds all leverage with the team and has little incentive to show up for voluntary work. Bell and Gase's relationship will be one to monitor during training camp. It is quite possible Gase attempts to go with more of a committee after Bell's down 2019. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:44 am

  • Browns GM Berry says team will tender Hunt
    Browns GM Andrew Berry said the team will tender restricted free agent Kareem Hunt.

    Advice: As expected. Still, Berry failed to mention whether the team would tender Hunt at the first-round level, essentially keeping him for roughly $4.66 million in 2020. Joining the Browns in Week 10 following an eight-game suspension out the gates, Hunt quietly finished as the overall RB17 in PPR leagues over Cleveland's final eight games due in part to his 5.5 targets per outing as the franchise's dependable third-down back; Chubb finished that stretch as the RB15. Expect Hunt to continue cannibalizing Chubb's carries next year if he goes unmatched as a restricted free agent. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:43 am

  • Titans will 'do everything' to keep Henry
    Titans GM Jon Robinson said the organization will "do everything we can" to keep impending free agent Derrick Henry.

    Advice: "We're going to work through that one and do everything we can to try and keep him around," Robinson said. With Ryan Tannehill simultaneously hitting the open market, it sounds as if the organization is more than willing to negotiate a lucrative extension with Henry all the while playing it safe (perhaps leading to the franchise tag) with their 31-year-old quarterback. Henry recently stated Ezekiel Elliott's six-year, $90 million contract is "the floor" for what he and his agent are seeking, at the very least making his deal an interesting case study for future negotiations.

  • Bears believe Montgomery can be featured back
    Bears GM Ryan Pace said David Montgomery can be the team's "featured back" and "carry a heavier load" in 2020.

    Advice: That's assuming the Bears opt to run more next season. Montgomery wasn't truly leaned on until midway through the year but still out-carried Tarik Cohen by a whopping margin (242 to 64), finishing as the overall RB24 in PPR leagues despite pedestrian marks (242/889/6, 3.67 YPA). Still lacking a complementary bruiser behind him, Montgomery would ultimately need to catch more than just 25 passes to garner unequivocal RB2 status. Taylor Gabriel's recent release could shift Cohen into a more slot-friendly role, though, providing further fruitful usage directly out of the backfield for the sophomore runner in his follow-up campaign.

  • Irsay denies Marlon Mack extension reports
    Speaking Sunday, Colts owner Jim Irsay denied reports that the team is working on an extension with contract-year RB Marlon Mack.

    Advice: Irsay could just be splitting hairs, as the Indianapolis Star reported earlier this month that talks would "heat up" at the Combine. That's this week. Mack has proven to be a perfectly-ordinary early-down back. He doesn't get much more than what's blocked, though there's a lot blocked in Indy. The 2017 fourth-rounder is still young, turning 24 in March. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:46 am

  • McDermott talks up ex-rugby player RB Wade
    Coach Sean McDermott said second-year RB Christian Wade "has been impressive" and the "sky's the limit" for him.

    Advice: It's obvious coachspeak from McDermott, but it's at least notable after Wade balled out last preseason with big plays as a first-year player following his transition from rugby over in the UK. Wade produced an 8-84-1 rushing line and 4-55 receiving line in limited exhibition work before spending the year on the practice squad. With Frank Gore a free agent, Wade could make a move on a 53-man roster spot in 2020. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:17 pm

  • Redskins bring back Adrian Peterson for 2020
    Redskins exercised Adrian Peterson's 2020 option.

    Advice: Peterson will be back in Washington for his age-35 season. Coach Ron Rivera notes Peterson's leadership is vital to the organization as they look to change the culture with a new regime. Peterson led the team in rushing last season (898 yards and 5 touchdowns on 211 carries) but should take a back seat to Derrius Guice if the youngster can get healthy. Peterson will be a very forgettable handcuff entering 2020 fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:04 am

  • Report: Kareem Hunt expects to remain in CLE
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports restricted free agent Kareem Hunt expects to remain with the Browns.

    Advice: Per Fowler, Hunt is hoping for a first-round tender, which is expected to be worth roughly $4.66 million, or a long-term deal. Hunt apparently isn't worried about his recent admission that he would likely fail a drug test. With Nick Chubb established on early downs, $4.66 million would be on the steep side for a third-down back in Hunt, albeit one capable of playing all three downs. Hunt's best bet for maximum earnings is probably still the open market. Leaving Cleveland is without question in the best interest of his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:09 pm
