  • 49ers open to trading WR Marquise Goodwin
    When asked if the team is open to trading WR Marquise Goodwin, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan responded, "We could, yeah."

    Advice: "We wouldn’t release Marquise. He’s too valuable," Shanahan said. "If he’s on this team, he’s going to be competing with that group and, if not, I feel pretty confident another team would want him." He also said teams "don’t get rid of valuable people just for nothing." Two seasons removed from breaking out for career-highs in catches (56) and receiving yards (962) in his first year with the Niners, Goodwin has since missed 12 out of a possible 32 games. Due $4.9 million in 2020 and expected to battle Trent Taylor and Jalen Hurd as further competition, San Francisco clearly doesn't have a pressing need for the 29-year-old to stick in the Bay Area. His release would create $3.65 million in cap space. Today, 2:53 pm

  • Cowboys finally reach back out to Dak's agent
    ESPN's Todd Archer reports the Cowboys and Dak Prescott's agent, Todd France, had conversations regarding the quarterback's contract on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first time the two sides have communicated since September. With the new collective bargaining agreement all but guaranteed to force Dallas to slap Prescott with the franchise tag (potentially losing Amari Cooper in the process), hurrying a long-term agreement has suddenly become of interest to the franchise that once thought they held all the cards. Assuming the front office can negotiate a lucrative extension with the 26-year-old before the tag window closes, the team's sights would obviously then pivot to keeping Cooper under the franchise or transition tag. Impending free agent CB Byron Jones, just 28 in September, is inching closer to becoming the odd man out during this process. Today, 2:27 pm

  • Report: Case Keenum 'on radar' for Browns's Mary Kay Cabot reports impending free agent QB Case Keenum is "on the radar" for Cleveland.

    Advice: The Browns are clearly in the market for a viable veteran backup as CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora additionally reported the team's pursuit of 33-year-old Chase Daniel. This also means Cleveland is moving on from free-agent-to-be Drew Stanton, who's played behind Baker Mayfield the past two seasons. Keenum's an obvious connection to new coach Kevin Stefanski as the former's lone season in Minnesota resulted in a career-high 22 touchdowns and 11-3 record before signing on with Denver the following year.

  • McCarthy: Goal is to have both Cooper, Cobb
    Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said the goal is to have both Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb in 2020.

    Advice: McCarthy said specifically, "The goal is to have both those guys. I was very impressed with (Cobb’s) video." Of course, Cobb and McCarthy enjoyed a long relationship in Green Bay that included the best years of the veteran slot WR's career. It'll just depend what price is right, as well as how much money Cooper ultimately gets. Complicating matters is the reality that ongoing CBA discussions aren't expected to be finalized within the next week, and the Cowboys have indicated that they won't sign Dak Prescott or Cooper until those talks are done.

    Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott is "definitely" the team's franchise QB.

    Advice: McCarthy added that the contract status is a "business matter." The Cowboys have been consistent at all levels through the organization with confirming Prescott is the team's QB of the future, but the clock is ticking to sign him to a long-term deal. The franchise tag window closes on March 10. Complicating matters is that reports indicate ongoing CBA discussions could take more than a week to clear up, and the Cowboys have said they don't plan on re-signing either Prescott or Amari Cooper until those matters are done.

  • Report: Colts expected to land Philip Rivers?'s Tony Pauline reports people at the NFL combine have indicated that Philip Rivers will sign with the Colts.

    Advice: The sources reportedly point to the fact that Rivers has a "great relationship with head coach Frank Reich," and, "It should also be an easy signing as the Colts are projected to have a lot of room under the cap." Obviously the Colts didn't quite see the whole Andrew Luck retirement coming. Still, devoting an early round pick to the position regardless of whether or not they ultimately land Rivers is probably a good idea. The good news is they possess the type of dominant offensive line that could theoretically keep Rivers upright in 2020. Today, 8:22 am

  • Report: DAL to part ways with Jason Witten?
    Dallas News' Calvin Watkins reports there isn't an expectation that TE Jason Witten will return to the Cowboys in 2020.

    Advice: Witten will turn 38 in May. The future HOF TE averaged a career-low 8.4 yards per reception and scored just four touchdowns in 2019. There still might be a role for Witten as a part-time red zone option, but his current near every-down role is far from ideal considering the lack of speed it puts on the field. Dak Prescott has been much more efficient targeting Blake Jarwin throughout his career. Perhaps Witten will look to continue his football career elsewhere, or maybe he'll *throws up in mouth* rejoin Booger and company in the Monday Night Football booth. Today, 7:07 am

  • Mayfield wants to be 'slimmer and faster'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Browns QB Baker Mayfield plans to be slimmer and faster in 2020.

    Advice: Rapoport added that Mayfield, "Put on some weight last year to bulk up and lost some quickness." The former No. 1 overall pick weighed in at the 2018 combine at 215 pounds. Mayfield did struggle to make his way out of the pocket in 2019, limiting some of his lethal improvisational play. Still, this is the type of news that is common in the offseason. Mayfield will ultimately need to show major signs of improvement on the football field in 2020 in order to get his career back on track. Today, 6:15 am

  • Roseman coy on Alshon Jeffery's status
    Speaking Tuesday, Eagles GM Howie Roseman declined comment on both Alshon Jeffery's (foot) health and future with the team.

    Advice: "Those are things we’re going to keep in-house and will have honest conversations with all of our players," was the extent of Roseman's comments on Jeffery's Philly future. He wasn't any more expansive on his health. "We’re not going to get into timetables on injuries. But when you talk about Alshon, the most important thing for Alshon is getting him healthy as quickly as possible." Jeffery is reportedly amenable to a "change of scenery," but his contract is close to untradeable. The 30-year-old is recovering from Lisfranc surgery. Jeffery's release would provide no cap relief.

    Advice: "(We) don’t want to officially give that word, but there have been some recent scans and things that give us a lot of hope that that’ll be the case, come April 1, he’ll be a full-go," Lynch said. Lynch did add that Hurd's stress fracture had proven "stubborn." Perhaps there is the possibility of a setback, though The Athletic reported earlier this month that Hurd is already healed.

  • Lynch: Garoppolo is 'our guy moving forward'
    Speaking Tuesday, 49ers GM John Lynch said the team is "committed to Jimmy [Garoppolo] moving forward."

    Advice: "He's our guy," Lynch continued. "The room for growth has not come close to hitting the ceiling." Garoppolo was hidden throughout much of the 49ers' playoff run, as the offense leaned heavily on their excellent running game, and Garoppolo was unable to make the throws to sink the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. He's unlikely to ever be an upper-echelon NFL starter, but Garoppolo is good enough to win with in this league if everything else around him hits on all cylinders. He can even win games with his arm against lower-level competition. Garoppolo's contract is easy to get out of now with no more guaranteed money. Cutting him would clear $22.4 million in cap space. That's not going to happen. But coach Kyle Shanahan has long been enamored with Kirk Cousins, while hometown boy Tom Brady is currently set to be a free agent. Yesterday, 5:11 pm

  • Shanahan wants Dante Pettis on a 'mission'
    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan wants Dante Pettis to return on a "mission" in 2020.

    Advice: "I think he took a documented step back in his second year (and) I’ve been around a lot of players who have done that," Shanahan said. "The players I’ve been around — which is a ton — they go one way or the other. They keep being like that, then they usually filter out. Or it’s a wake-up call for them and they come back and you kind of see it in April. It’s like, ‘OK, this guy treated January to April so much different than before.’ Then it usually changes their career." Shanny said Pettis' 2019 mothballing was because of an "accumulation of stuff." The message could not have been sent any stronger. Yesterday, 3:13 pm

  • Browns likely to exercise Njoku's team option

"But it’s safe to say we view both those guys as very, very talented members of our roster and we look forward to seeing what they’re going to do over the next few years." The "other guy" is Myles Garrett. Something of a perennial tease through the first three years of his career, Njoku did not get along with since-fired coach Freddie Kitchens. ESPN has posited Njoku as a trade candidate, but Berry's words strongly suggest he will be staying. Yesterday, 2:52 pm

  • Jags have no timeline on 2020 QB decision
    Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has no timeline for deciding his 2020 starting quarterback.

    Advice: "It’s not really going to happen until we start playing, in the preseason, because for me, at that position, one of the things that’s important is that the players can see who the best player is," Marrone said. "You have an obligation to everyone in that locker room that you’re putting the best player out there." When Nick Foles wasn't injured last season, he was bad. Sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew displayed only flashes. It's not a great situation, one that has the Jags in "when you have two quarterbacks you really have zero" territory. Yesterday, 1:41 pm

  • Pete Carroll 'heaps praise' on TE Hollister
    The Seattle Times reports Seahawks coach Pete Carroll "heaped heavy praise" on restricted free agent Jacob Hollister in Tuesday's media session.

    Advice: Beat writer Bob Condoota believes it's "obvious" the Seahawks want Hollister back. That's despite the fact they just gave Greg Olsen $5.5 million guaranteed and still have Will Dissly under contract. Something is going to have to give. The "low" RFA tender would cost $2.144 million. Since Hollister was undrafted, the Seahawks would not be entitled to compensation were they to decline to match an offer sheet. Yesterday, 1:30 pm

"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.

    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. Yesterday, 1:06 pm

    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.

    Advice: Now on the wrong side of 30, Wright remained the Panthers' "glue guy" No. 3 receiver last season, posting a 28/296/0 line with Cam Newton missing most of the year.

"I really want him on the team," Rhule said, before adding the caveat, "when Cam’s healthy, he’s one of the best of the best." Rhule also added, "I don't really care if he’s full speed until September." Rhule did decline to name Newton his certain starter if healthy, but it had all the hallmarks of coachspeak.

"[Brandon] Allen may be that guy, [Brett Rypien] may be that guy, and we'll look and see what else is out there." Flacco has yet to be medically cleared from his career-threatening neck injury, but it sounds as if Denver has already made up their minds on freeing the $10.05 million in cap space that comes along with slashing his $23.65 million number off their books.

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.

    Advice: Telesco added that the team would prefer a long-term contract, and that talks are ongoing. Henry would be due roughly $11 million under the tag. Despite his injury issues and an up and down 2019, Hunter would be an extremely hot commodity on the open market. The tag is a distinct possibility. Yesterday, 10:13 am

    Advice: "We’ll sit down and talk about the landscape of where we are," Veach said. "We’ll get feedback from them in regards to what they’re looking for and hopefully we can bridge a gap and make something happen." Unless Watkins is open to a pay cut or significant restructure, it is an absolute no brainer for the Chiefs to cut him and recoup $14 million in cap space. Still four months shy of his 27th birthday, Watkins could correctly gamble his best bet is to force his way back to the open market. Yesterday, 10:09 am

  • Panthers moving forward with Cam as starter
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers are moving forward with Cam Newton as the team's starting quarterback.

    Advice: Coach Matt Rhule and his staff have reportedly been impressed how Newton has treated his rehab and his intent to return to top form. Expected to pass his physical and be cleared for football activities in the coming weeks, the organization's only other options were to outright release the 30-year-old (31 in May) and save an ensuing $19.1 million against the cap or try and trade him on the final year of his deal — the latter transaction being an improbable one since Newton's timeline complicates matters. The former MVP has missed a full 16 games due to an ailing shoulder and nagging foot problems over the past two seasons but remains one of the league's few field-flipping game changers when healthy. Carolina is still expected to land a viable backup as insurance in free agency. Yesterday, 5:39 am

    Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said the Cowboys haven't met or negotiated with Dak Prescott's agent Todd France since September.

    Advice: Jones added, "No contract with Prescott or Amari Cooper will be agreed upon until CBA rules for the 2020 league year are decided." Still, he reaffirmed the team's long-term commitment to Prescott by noting, "Dak’s our quarterback. He’s our quarterback for the future. We have nothing but the greatest respect for him ... There’s no thoughts like that." The good news is that the Cowboys met with Cooper and his agent Chafie Fields at the Pro Bowl in Orlando. Jones said the conversation was "very upbeat." Recent reports have been all over the place with Prescott, but most recently NFL Network's Ian Rapoport noted the Cowboys are attempting to get a long-term deal done prior to March 10. That is when the franchise tag window closes. Look for talks to heat up following the combine. Monday, 12:30 pm

  • Report: Alshon is open to a change of scenery
    The Athletic's Connor Hughes reports Alshon Jeffery "would welcome the change of scenery" that would come with a potential trade.

    Advice: Jeffery and the Eagles don't appear to be on the best terms right now, although his agent denied the report. The receiver will be heading into his age-30 season coming off an ominous Lisfranc foot surgery, and he has a $15.7 million cap hit this season followed by another $18.5 million in 2021. It's hard to trust Jeffery moving forward given his injury history, and it will be hard to trade Jeffery given his contract. The Eagles are likely to add some youth to their receiver room in the draft if they aren't happy with the free agent market. Luckily for Philly, this draft class is expected to be strong.

  • 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.

    Advice: This has always been implied. Witten did also say he has met with new head coach Mike McCarthy and has remained in communication with the Jones family in Dallas, but things have gone stagnant with the Combine and other contracts coming up. The veteran will have some opportunities outside of Dallas if it gets that far, particularly with the Giants and OC Jason Garrett.

    Advice: Flacco is awaiting a second opinion on his recent "encouraging" MRI.

    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. Tuesday, 11:53 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.
