  • 49ers WR Rogers on schedule for OTAs
    The agent for 49ers WR Eric Rogers (ACL) anticipates his client being cleared for OTAs.

    Advice: Rogers' progress is notable because he was a heralded signing out of the CFL last year, only to miss the entire season after tearing his ACL early in training camp. Entering camp, one beat writer predicted Rogers would win the Niners' third receiver job. There is a ton of opportunity in San Francisco's receiver corps. 26-year-old Rogers stands 6-foot-3, 206 with 4.5-flat speed. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:25 pm

  • Bengals to address running back in Round 1?
    ESPN's Katherine Terrell said drafting a running back in the first round is "not out of the question" for the Bengals.

    Advice: We agree with Terrell's assessment that Cincinnati's backfield "isn't great at the moment." Giovani Bernard is coming off ACL surgery and backups Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman are both free agents. Jeremy Hill is entering a contract year and has averaged an underwhelming 3.67 yards per carry over his last two seasons. The Bengals hold the No. 9 pick in this year's draft. LSU's Leonard Fournette and Florida State's Dalvin Cook could both go in that range. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:00 pm

  • Vikes to meet with Peterson's agent next week
    The Vikings will meet with Adrian Peterson's agent next week to discuss his future with the team.

    Advice: The Vikings will also sit down with Terence Newman's agent. Newman is contemplating retirement, while Peterson wants to play but isn't in the Vikings' budget. Peterson could be facing a relatively quiet market if the two sides part ways, which seems likely. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported last week that many GMs have balked at the idea of paying Peterson $5 million annually. Peterson has beaten long odds before, but that's not something teams can bank on. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:25 pm

  • Mularkey: Titans RB job is not a competition
    Coach Mike Mularkey said the Titans' starting running back job will not be opened to competition for 2017.

    Advice: "DeMarco Murray is the guy," Mularkey stated. "He has shown he is the guy and he will continue to be that guy." Derrick Henry averaged 4.45 yards per carry, scored five touchdowns, and caught 13-of-15 targets in a promising rookie year, but he will open 2017 as a complementary, game-plan-specific back. "Derrick, as you saw, some games he was more involved than others," Mularkey explained. "And a lot is based on how we are going to attack the opponent." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:12 pm

    49ers signed WR DeAndre Carter to a two-year contract.

    Advice: Carter has bounced around the league since going undrafted out of Sacramento State in 2015, spending time with the Ravens, Raiders and most recently the Patriots. The 23-year-old has yet to play an NFL snap. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:06 pm

  • Coughlin: Blake Bortles must limit turnovers
    Jaguars EVP Tom Coughlin emphasized that Blake Bortles must avoid turnovers to maintain his starting job.

    Advice: Bortles committed 22 turnovers last year -- 16 interceptions and six lost fumbles. The 16 picks were actually a career low. "Taking care of the football is paramount to that position," said Coughlin. "There can be no way the ball is turned over to that extent." Coughlin added he believes improved pass protection and "components around him" will give Bortles a better shot at success, hence the Jaguars' trade for LT Branden Albert.

  • Redskins to meet with free agents at Combine
    The Redskins will meet with their impending free agents at next week's Combine.

    Advice: That includes Chris Baker, Vernon Davis, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson as well restricted free agents Will Compton and Chris Thompson. Jackson has expressed interest in remaining with the Redskins, though the team is "lukewarm" about that possibility, according to the Washington Post. Garcon and Jackson are both expected to command $9-11 million annually. It's a near certainty that at least one will move on. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:53 am

  • Siemian won't practice fully until training camp
    According to Brandon Stokley of 104.3 The Fan Denver, it's unlikely Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will practice fully until training camp.

    Advice: Siemian underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in January. He's still expected to be ready for OTAs, but won't be given a full workload until training camp opens. Siemian had his moments last year, but remains a placeholder for the Broncos while first-round pick Paxton Lynch continues his development. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:33 am

  • Cardinals bring back Ross on one-year deal
    Cardinals re-signed WR Jeremy Ross to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Ross joined the Cardinals late last season, logging 39 snaps and parlaying four targets into 37 yards and a touchdown. The 28-year-old gives Arizona some wide receiver depth and should be a core player on special teams. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:11 am

  • Gronkowski 'for sure' will be ready Week 1
    Rob Gronkowski (back) said he will "for sure" be ready to play Week 1.

    Advice: "Uh, yes," Gronkowski said when asked if he'll be ready to go for the season opener. "No doubt." Gronkowski is coming off his third known back surgery after he required 2009 and 2013 operations to repair herniated disks. As for his playing future, Gronk said he's not yet even thinking about retirement. Still just 28 (in May), Gronkowski's body has been through a lot in such a short period of time, but he keeps coming back better than ever. He averaged a monstrous 21.6 yards per catch on 25 grabs in 2016. Gronkowski is still the TE1 in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 am

  • Coughlin won't completely commit to Bortles
    Speaking Friday, Jaguars EVP Tom Coughlin wouldn't completely commit to Blake Bortles as the starting quarterback.

    Advice: However, Coughlin didn't indicate the Jaguars will be moving on from Bortles, according to ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco. When he was first introduced as the new EVP, Coughlin said Bortles "is our quarterback." It suggests the Jaguars will pick up Bortles' fifth-year option, but Bortles isn't going to get an extension this offseason after his dreadful 2016. The Jaguars are a dark horse to make an addition at quarterback either in free agency or the draft, but Bortles remains the heavy favorite to be under center as the starter come Week 1.

  • Josh Doctson running drills at Redskins Park
    Josh Doctson (Achilles') has progressed to running receiver drills.

    Advice: In a series of Snapchat videos on Friday, Doctson is seen doing some ladder drills and route-running at Redskins Park. Doctson didn't look to be running at full speed, but it's certainly progress. Coach Jay Gruden had hoped February would bring more results in Doctson's rehab, and it appears the sophomore is on track for OTAs. If DeSean Jackson and/or Pierre Garcon leave as free agents, and Doctson can stay healthy, he could be in for a big year-two leap. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:37 am

  • Chiefs take flier on 29-year-old C.J. Spiller
    Chiefs signed RB C.J. Spiller.

    Advice: Spiller has name recognition, but he hasn't been a factor on the field for years. He was a massive free-agent flop in New Orleans in 2015 and bounced around between the Saints, Jets, and Seahawks last season before eventually being released in December. Spiller will turn 30 before the season. He'll try to carve out a pass-catching role in K.C., but we won't hold our breath. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:11 am

  • Jets to ask Eric Decker for a pay cut?
    SNY's Ralph Vacchiano thinks it's a "good bet" the Jets will ask Eric Decker to take a pay cut.

    Advice: Coming off major shoulder and hip surgeries, Decker is due a $7.25 million salary and slated to count $8.75 million against the cap. He's not expected to be ready for spring practices. If Decker declines a pay cut, the Jets could end up releasing him and save $5.75 million against the cap. Brandon Marshall seems more likely to be cut, but it's not out of the question both could be gone. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:31 am

  • Vikes decline comment on Bradford extension
    Speaking Thursday, Vikings GM Rick Spielman declined comment on contract-year QB Sam Bradford's situation.

    Advice: Spielman did say he would make the trade for Bradford again in a "millisecond." With Teddy Bridgewater's career in doubt, Bradford will be under center in Week 1, but there's not much reason for Minnesota to rush into an extension that would give Bradford guaranteed money in 2018. Due $17 million between salary and bonuses, Bradford turns 30 in November. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:39 am

  • RapSheet: 'No guarantee' Cutler plays in 2017
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is "no guarantee" Jay Cutler plays in 2017.

    Advice: "He's one of several veterans who are still considering whether they want to play," Rapoport continued. "It is a consideration. It's something he's confided in people." Cutler will be 34 in April and has dealt with several injuries the last couple seasons including the torn labrum he is currently rehabbing, but it would be shocking if he decided to retire. This is almost certainly a ploy to scare away any potential trading partners, forcing the Bears to release him and allowing him to pick his next destination. With so many quarterback-needy teams, Cutler should have a healthy market once he is cut. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:02 am

  • Jay Cutler (shoulder) to be cleared by March
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jay Cutler (shoulder) is expected to be medically cleared by March.

    Advice: Cutler underwent surgery for a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder in early December. It's typically a three-month rehab, but don't expect Cutler to do much throwing before training camp. He's expected to be able to pass a physical sometime next month. The Bears will likely release Cutler before or shortly after the start of the new league year on March 9. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 am

  • Report: Jets have 'some interest' in Cutler
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora continues to report that the Jets have "some interest" in Jay Cutler once he's released by the Bears.

    Advice: "They believe he can play in the elements that are a reality in the AFC East, and they like his moxie and arm talent," writes La Canfora. "And that was well before the Jets hired Jeremy Bates as their quarterback coach." Bates and Cutler have mutual affinity for each other after working together in Denver and Chicago. The current Jets regime needs to find a way to put wins on the board if they're going to save their jobs. No quarterback currently on the roster or in the draft will be able to do that, so Cutler would make sense as a veteran capable of coming in and making this team at least competitive. La Canfora also mentions the Bills, 49ers, Dolphins, Texans, Jaguars, and Browns as potential landing spots for Cutler. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:35 am

  • Report: Bears actively shopping Jay Cutler
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears have "actively started seeking" a trade partner for Jay Cutler.

    Advice: The Bears will try their darnedest to get something for Cutler, though there's a good chance they'll end up cutting him. Cutler plateaued and arguably regressed after a promising beginning to his career in Denver, and hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2009. With that said, a quarterback-needy team like the Jets could be desperate enough to take the bait. The Bears are expected to target Jimmy Garoppolo, but they'll face plenty of competition.

  • DeSean Jackson praises Carson Wentz
    Impending free agent DeSean Jackson was impressed by Carson Wentz's performance as a rookie.

    Advice: "He killed it," said Jackson. "He had a heck of a year. He showed he can do it all. He has the intangibles of being a big-time quarterback." Jackson thinks he still has 4-6 good years left in him and wouldn't mind ending his career where it started. "I mean, it’s definitely a great story and ending," said Jackson when asked about a return to Philadelphia. "It all sounds good, but you never know until the final decision is made." The Eagles, Buccaneers and Rams should be among Jackson's top suitors when he hits the open market. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:45 am

    Advice: Speaking on Adam Schefter's podcast, Jackson said returning to Philadelphia would be a "great story," but he will be looking to get all he can out of this trip to free agency. With a quarterback on the rise and not much else besides Mike Evans in the passing game, the Bucs make a ton of sense as a potential landing spot, especially since Anderson also reports Jackson has "existing rapport" with Jameis Winston. Jackson has also been linked with the Rams. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:40 am

    Advice: MMQB's Peter King wrote he "wouldn't be shocked" if Cutler ended up with the Cardinals, but Somers makes it clear that is not a real option. It also never made much sense for Cutler to sit for at least a year behind Carson Palmer when he should have starting options even if the Bears decide to move on. Even though they are not interested in Cutler, the Cardinals have to find their quarterback of the future this offseason. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:47 am

  • OC expects full offseason to benefit Bradford
    Vikings OC Pat Shurmur expects Sam Bradford to be better coming off a full offseason with the organization.

    Advice: The Vikings dealt with a mountain of change on offense last season including Bradford joining the team shortly before Week 1 and Shurmur taking over for Norv Turner in the middle of the year. Both will benefit from a full offseason together, and Bradford should spend plenty of time developing chemistry with his still relatively new receivers. None of that will matter, however, unless the Vikings fix the offensive line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:39 am

  • Cardinals a possibility for Jay Cutler?
    MMQB's Peter King "wouldn't be shocked" if Jay Cutler ends up with the Cardinals.

    Advice: That would mean Cutler chooses to settle for a backup job behind Carson Palmer for 2017 with an eye on taking over as the starter in 2018 if Palmer retires. It would be somewhat shocking to see Cutler take a back seat when there are so many open jobs out there, but his fit in Bruce Arians' gunslinger offense makes sense. The Cardinals have said finding a quarterback is their No. 1 goal this offseason. The Jets and 49ers could also be landing spots for Cutler. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:36 am

  • Report: GMs have 'real concerns' about AP
    According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, several GMs have balked at the idea of paying Adrian Peterson $5 million on a one-year contract.

    Advice: It looks like Peterson is nearing the end of his tenure with Minnesota, but that doesn't mean he'll be greeted with open arms once he becomes a free agent. Per La Canfora, teams have "real concerns" about Peterson's durability and question whether he'd be willing to take on a backup role. When asked about Peterson's free agent prospects, one GM told La Canfora, "it only takes one team to do something stupid." Despite his Hall of Fame credentials, it seems like most GMs view the current version of Peterson as an injury-prone liability. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:29 pm

  • AD tweets about Giants' 'interesting moves'
    Adrian Peterson tweeted Wednesday about the "interesting moves" the Giants have made this offseason.

    Advice: His interest was likely piqued by the release of Rashad Jennings on Monday. Peterson has said he would be interested in playing for the Giants if he leaves Minnesota, but he also recently said he would like to retire as a Viking. That is not going to happen unless he takes a big pay cut. He also does not appear to be a great fit with the Giants, who operated from the shotgun on over 70 percent of their snaps in 2016. Peterson likely will not be playing for the Vikings come September, but it would be somewhat surprising if he landed in New York. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:53 am
