  • Adrian Peterson working out with Jameis
    Adrian Peterson was pictured working out with Jameis Winston.

    Advice: It is somewhat notable because the Bucs may be in the market for a running back, and coach Dirk Koetter added fuel to the fire when asked about the picture. "I've seen Adrian Peterson many times playing and that guy is one of the best running backs to ever play," Koetter said. "I'm anxious to talk to Jameis and ask him how his workouts went." With Doug Martin suspended the first three games and not a lock to stick on the roster, Peterson could be an option for Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:49 am

  • Carr, Raiders will ramp up talks after draft
    Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said extension talks with walk-year QB Derek Carr will ramp up after the draft.

    Advice: "He knows what we’re trying to do in free agency," McKenzie said. "The communication has been ongoing, just talking about the philosophy of a contract and the thought process around it. Hopefully when the serious talks start going, then it’s going to be easier." The Raiders also would like to work out extensions with Khalil Mack and RG Gabe Jackson before training camp, but Carr will be first in line. It will be shocking if the two sides do not get it done over the summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:45 am

  • Koetter: Can let Martin situation 'play out'
    Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said the team can let the Doug Martin (suspended) situation "play out."

    Advice: Suspended for the first three games for a PED violation, Martin did a stint in rehab following his positive test. The Bucs have been noncommittal on his future, and Koetter's comments suggest it is a decision they will take deep into the offseason. "I don’t know what’s going to happen as I sit here today," Koetter said, "but right now we’ve got time on our side." Unless the Bucs draft a running back early or bring in someone like Adrian Peterson, Martin will likely be back. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:41 am

  • Ameer Abdullah (foot) to get in work at OTAs
    Lions coach Jim Caldwell expects Ameer Abdullah (foot) to be ready for OTAs.

    Advice: "He’ll be able to, at some point, work out there on the field this spring. So we’ll see where he is," Caldwell said. "Obviously, we know what he can do. He’ll bounce back and play well for us. He’ll be fine." Abdullah was medically cleared earlier this month, but it sounds like he could be limited at OTAs. The Lions haven't ruled out upgrading on Abdullah in the draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:25 pm

  • Multiple reports Bryant will be reinstated
    The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson confirms suspended WR Martavis Bryant is expected to be reinstated.

    Advice: A previous report said Bryant's return is imminent. Bryant will be 60 days removed from applying for reinstatement this week. It sounds like there's still not a firm timetable on when a decision will be announced, but all signs point to him getting reinstated. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:31 pm

  • Dolphins could extend Landry before camp
    The Miami Herald expects the Dolphins to extend contract-year WR Jarvis Landry before training camp.

    Advice: Miami has yet to open talks with Landry, but have made it clear they plan to extend him. The Dolphins have enough cap space to get a deal done despite re-signing Kenny Stills. Miami reportedly wants to keep Landry, Stills, and DeVante Parker together through 2020. Landry is targeting $11 million annually. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:31 pm

  • Report: Martavis Bryant return is 'imminent'
    The Beaver County Times' Chris Bradford reports Steelers suspended WR Martavis Bryant's reinstatement is "imminent."

    Advice: Bryant applied for reinstatement back on January 28, and by rule, the league has 60 days to make a decision. That would put the deadline at this week. The Steelers have kept quiet on Bryant's possible return, but all accounts have suggested Bryant has stayed on the straight-and-narrow while away from the team. In his time away, Bryant has reportedly added 25 pounds of muscle to his 6'4 frame and is in "excellent condition" as he works as a volunteer high school coach. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:57 pm

  • Saints, Chase Daniel reunite on one-year deal
    Saints signed QB Chase Daniel, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Daniel goes back to where it all began. Entering his ninth season, Daniel spent the first four years of his career in New Orleans as Drew Brees' backup after making the team as an UDFA. He had a three-year stay in Kansas City before a one-year detour sent him to Philadelphia in 2016. The Eagles cut him earlier this month. Daniel, 30, had hoped to land a chance to start somewhere, but it's never happened for him. He could make Luke McCown expendable. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:50 pm

  • Hue Jackson: Rex Burkhead will flourish in NE
    Speaking Wednesday, Browns coach Hue Jackson said new Patriots RB Rex Burkhead will "flourish" in New England.

    Advice: "He's very talented," Jackson said. "He's going to get his opportunity now, and he's going to flourish. He's a really good player. A really good player. He's very versatile because he's a good runner, a good pass-catcher. He's a good blocker. He brings a lot of different elements to that football team." Jackson's opinion is notable because he was Burkhead's position coach and OC in Cincinnati before taking the Browns job. Burkhead's hype continues to build. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:00 pm

  • Arians wants Johnson to get 30 touches a game
    Coach Bruce Arians said he'd like to get David Johnson 30 touches per game this season.

    Advice: We've heard this "30 touches per game" thing from Arians before, and it's never exactly translated to that much work, but Johnson did average over 23 per game in 2016 and appears capable of more. Arians said Johnson is still too young to be "overused" at 25 years old. The Cardinals know they can't ask Carson Palmer to throw 40 times a week at his age in this downfield offense, so putting more on Johnson's plate is their best chance at winning games. Johnson is the early leader in the clubhouse to go No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:18 am

  • Cardinals moving Andre Ellington to WR in '17
    Coach Bruce Arians said the Cardinals are moving Andre Ellington to wide receiver.

    Advice: Ellington will no longer meet with the running backs and is moving full-time to receiver. He must have okayed the transition since Ellington re-signed a one-year deal with Arizona earlier this month. Ellington stands 5'9/199 and has always been a plus pass-catcher out of the backfield. He didn't hold up the one season Arizona tried to turn him into a workhorse back. With so many health-related question marks behind an aging Larry Fitzgerald, Ellington could have a chance to carve out a slot role in three- and four-wide sets. Arizona now needs a No. 2 runner.

  • Agholor likely to play more special teams
    Coach Doug Pederson said Nelson Agholor could take on a bigger special teams role in 2017.

    Advice: Agholor has mentioned the possibility of returning kicks. Following the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to go with slot man Jordan Matthews, Agholor's role on offense has evaporated. He's no higher than the No. 4 wideout at the moment and could even be a trade candidate on draft weekend. Dynasty owners have no choice but to sit tight with Agholor's stock at zero.

  • Rivera says Newton's confidence was shook
    Coach Ron Rivera admitted Cam Newton's confidence was "shook" last season.

    Advice: Continuing, Rivera said that confidence will have to be rebuilt this year. Newton was sacked 36 times last season and hit another 10 times as he threw. He also took a ton of licks as a runner. Fixing their offensive line will go a long way in rebuilding Newton. The Panthers added LT Matt Kalil in free agency, but right tackle remains a question mark. The MVP in 2015, Newton is a big bounce-back candidate in 2017 with Kelvin Benjamin a year removed from ACL surgery. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:50 am

  • Hue Jax: Corey Coleman now 'the guy' at WR
    Coach Hue Jackson said 2016 first-rounder Corey Coleman is now seen as "the guy" as the Browns' No. 1 receiver following the departure of Terrelle Pryor.

    Advice: "He's got to go do it now, because he’s now seen as the 'the guy,' so he needs to go play and play well," Jackson said. "We see the potential of what he can be and what he will be and he’s doing the work right now that it takes to get there." Jackson seems confident Coleman will rebound in Year 2 following a down rookie season. Coleman started hot with a monster 5-104-2 against the Ravens in Week 2, but he broke his hand in practice the next week and missed six games. He failed to top 41 yards in any of the final eight contests, and ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi suggests the cold weather affected Coleman mentally. Coleman is a strong buy-low candidate in Dynasty.

  • Joseph challenges Demaryius to become better
    Coach Vance Joseph challenged Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, saying he wants him "to be a dominant player all the time" and "become a leader."

    Advice: "I don’t want him to ease into games," Joseph continued. "I want him to be a guy. I want him to step out and be a guy. It's time. He can take over a game, but I want his mindset every game to be every game we play to walk on the field and take over the game." By no means did Thomas have a bad 2016, but his catches (90), yards (1,083), and touchdowns (5) were all five-year lows. Playing with Trevor Siemian instead of Peyton Manning obviously was the main reason, but Thomas does seem to play a bit passive at times. He had just two 100-yard games but was top-10 in targets.

  • Lions GM thinks Peterson can still play
    Lions GM Bob Quinn said he thinks Adrian Peterson still has gas left in the tank.

    Advice: Quinn did not say if the Lions were pursuing the future Hall of Famer, but it is an interesting comment considering he has talked about the need to improve the running game this offseason. Peterson has said he is interested in helping a team "win a championship." The Lions might not be at that level, but they should compete for a playoff spot in 2017. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:44 pm

  • GM: Derek Carr (leg) will be full-go at OTAs
    Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said Derek Carr (broken leg) will be a full-go for OTAs.

    Advice: Carr told LT Donald Penn he was "almost 100 percent" in February, so this comes as no surprise. Even with their pending relocation certain to be a distraction, the Raiders look set for a great season on the field as long as Carr stays healthy. Carr should sign a long-term extension this offseason. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:39 pm

  • Giants not an option for Adrian Peterson
    Gary Myers of the New York Daily News doesn't believe the Giants are an option for free agent Adrian Peterson.

    Advice: Peterson was arrested on charges of child abuse after hitting and injuring his child in 2014. After last year's PR nightmare involving Josh Brown, the Giants are staying far away from any player that might generate controversy. The Giants could use another back after releasing Rashad Jennings, but for now, it looks like they're content splitting the work between Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen. Peterson's market continues to be nonexistent. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:32 am

  • Peterson: 'I'm in no rush' to find a new team
    Adrian Peterson said he is "in no rush" to find a new team.

    Advice: That is convenient because NFL teams are in no rush to sign him. In a statement which must be true considering the number of all-caps words and exclamation points, Peterson shot down reports he is looking for $8 million in the first year of his new deal before adding "finding the best fit" and helping a team "win a championship" are his main objectives. Peterson has received almost zero interest since becoming a free agent. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:45 am

  • AP looking for $8 million on next contract
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports free agent Adrian Peterson is looking for $8 million in the first year of his new contract.

    Advice: He can keep dreaming. That would make Peterson the third highest-paid running back in the league behind Le'Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy. Previous reports have suggested teams are reluctant to pay Peterson even $5 million annually, making his $8 million asking price downright laughable. Aging, fragile and fumble-prone, Peterson's stock has never been lower. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:22 am

  • Report: Packers mulled Adrian Peterson visit
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Packers "mulled" a visit with free agent Adrian Peterson but ultimately decided against it.

    Advice: According to Fowler, Peterson's asking price is believed to be too high. One of the best running backs in the history of the league, Peterson doesn't seem to realize he's a 32-year-old running back in an NFL that is devaluing the position. He's not going to get top-end money. Peterson will likely have to settle for something around $5-6 million or he's going to be without a team. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:48 am

  • Newton needs surgery on throwing shoulder
    Cam Newton will undergo surgery on his throwing shoulder to repair a "partially torn rotator cuff," and is questionable for the start of training camp.

    Advice: Newton first suffered the injury in Week 14. The team initially believed he would heal with rest and rehab, but instead he'll go under the knife on March 30. Newton will do no throwing for three months, and won't resume throwing with the team for four months. That's right around the start of camp. Newton could be highly limited in the preseason, and perhaps held out of exhibition action altogether. At least for now, his Week 1 status is not in doubt. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:02 pm

  • FA Chase Daniel visiting the Jets on Monday
    Free agent QB Chase Daniel is visiting the Jets on Monday.

    Advice: Daniel visited the Saints on Sunday, but the Jets would figure to offer him a chance to compete for the starting job this year. That likely appeals to Daniel. The Jets don't seem to have much of a plan at quarterback. They've been connected to Jay Cutler, Josh McCown, and now Daniel the past two weeks. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 6:25 am
