  • Thomas Rawls to serve in complementary role
    Thomas Rawls is expected to be a "complement off the bench" following the Seahawks' addition of Eddie Lacy.

    Advice: Lacy is penciled in as the starter, with Rawls and C.J. Prosise mixing in as complementary backs. Prosise's role should be the most secure as Seattle's best passing-game option, and arguably carries the most fantasy appeal in PPR leagues. As Lacy weighed in close to 270 pounds during free agency, we still wouldn't rule out Rawls or Prosise out-touching him this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:43 pm

  • Steelers won't put timetable on Le'Veon Bell
    Steelers GM Kevin Colbert declined to provide a timetable on Le'Veon Bell's (groin surgery) recovery.

    Advice: "Our goal is to have him 100 percent for the 2017 season," is all Colbert would offer. Bell underwent surgery to repair a "core muscle injury" on March 13. Bell's recovery will almost certainly sideline him for all of OTAs, but he should be ready by or early in training camp. 25-year-old Bell has dealt with foot, groin, and multiple knee injuries entering his fifth NFL season.

  • Theo Riddick underwent double wrist surgery
    Theo Riddick underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season.

    Advice: The injuries cost Riddick the final four games of last season. He is expected to be a full participant at OTAs. While roles throughout the rest of Detroit's backfield remain in flux and could be affected by the draft, Riddick should be locked in as the team's passing-down specialist. Under OC Jim Bob Cooter, the Lions have embraced a quick-pass offense that suits Riddick's skill set. He will again be a worthwhile mid-round investment in 2017 PPR drafts.

  • Jackson preparing for Osweiler to be a Brown
    Browns coach Hue Jackson claims he is preparing as if Brock Osweiler will be on the team this season.

    Advice: "Obviously, he's a player on our team and we're going to treat him just like we do all of our other quarterbacks until he's not," said Jackson. It's classic coach-speak and really doesn't mean much of anything. Assuming the Patriots hold on to Jimmy Garoppolo, the Browns should select a quarterback early in the draft, possibly as soon as 12th overall. The Browns have shopped Osweiler, but releasing him is the more likely outcome. He's not long for Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:11 am

  • 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 Today, 9:32 am

  • Jags may decline Bortles' 5th-year option
    Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union would "guess" the Jaguars won't pick up Blake Bortles' fifth-year option for 2018.

    Advice: Exercising Bortles' option would have been a no-brainer a year ago after his breakout 2015 campaign. Rather than taking a step forward, Bortles showed significant regression in 2016 while struggling with his mechanics. O'Halloran is only making an educated guess, but Bortles certainly hasn't developed into the franchise QB the Jags were hoping for when they drafted him third overall in 2014. Jacksonville has until May 2 to pick up his option. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:57 am

  • Browns likely to move on from Josh Gordon
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports "it’s doubtful" the Browns give suspended WR Josh Gordon another chance.

    Advice: It falls in line with coach Hue Jackson's stance on Gordon. The Browns are expected to shop Gordon if he gets reinstated, but could ultimately release him. Gordon’s status should be known before OTAs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:54 pm

  • Lance Dunbar expected to be third-down back
    Rams coach Sean McVay expects to use Lance Dunbar as a third-down back.

    Advice: Dunbar should have a role similar to Chris Thompson in Washington. It's a downgrade to Todd Gurley's outlook, with Dunbar likely to play in all pass situations. Dunbar was phased out in Dallas last year, but averaged five catches per game before going down in 2015. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:52 am

  • Stewart thinks CAR drafting RB 'a good thing'
    Jonathan Stewart thinks it is a "good thing" if the Panthers draft a running back.

    Advice: "You always want fresh legs. Fresh legs mean a lot, especially in the fourth quarter," Stewart said. "Definitely open arms to get somebody in here that wants to win and understands that." It is a team-first mindset from Stewart, who just signed a one-year extension through 2018. It will be a shock if the Panthers do not draft a running back, but unless that pick comes in the first couple rounds, Stewart should enter training camp as the lead back.

  • 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 Yesterday, 6:45 am

    Advice: A previous report suggested it’s the Texans or retirement for Romo. The Broncos aren’t going to trade Dallas anything, but aren’t ruling out signing Romo if/when he becomes a free agent. Houston remains Romo's most likely landing spot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:11 pm

  • Tony Romo's 2017 plans: Texans or retirement
    According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Tony Romo believes his options for 2017 are retiring or playing for the Texans.

    Advice: Darlington said the Broncos haven't "closed the door" on Romo but aren't actively pursuing him. Romo ending up in Houston seemed like a forgone conclusion two weeks ago when the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to Cleveland, but no progress has been made since then. With Romo still stranded in Dallas for the time being, it's possible he could leave to pursue a career in broadcasting. Romo has already been offered gigs with Fox Sports and CBS. All we know for sure is that Romo won't be back with the Cowboys in 2017. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:51 pm

    Advice: Sports Illustrated's Peter King hinted that Romo turned down a "very good" television offer a few weeks ago. The Cowboys are still holding out hope of trading Romo, though the Broncos and Texans seem to have called their bluff.

  • 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

  • Gordon's reinstatement to be decided soon
    According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Josh Gordon is expected to hear back from the league about his reinstatement application by late April or early May.

    Advice: Gordon applied for reinstatement on March 1 and should learn his fate around the same time as the NFL Draft. Substance abuse issues have kept Gordon off the field since 2014. Browns coach Hue Jackson has washed his hands of Gordon, making it unlikely he'll be back with Cleveland even if he's reinstated. Gordon turns 26 in April. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:24 am

  • Panthers exercising Kelvin Benjamin's option
    The Panthers will exercise WR Kelvin Benjamin's fifth-year team option for 2018.

    Advice: It's a no-brainer. While Benjamin tore his ACL in 2015 and had a down 2016, he's still a big talent in a wide receiver corps that otherwise lacks it. Benjamin turned 26 in February and is under team control through his age-27 year. He should benefit from a healthy offseason and needs Cam Newton to bounce back to his MVP level of play. Benjamin is a fantasy WR3 with big upside. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:52 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

    Advice: Sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, Floyd hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest. With Cooks added to the mix in New England, there doesn't appear to be room for Floyd. ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein thinks Floyd could make sense in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:00 am

  • Panthers extend Jonathan Stewart through 2018
    Panthers signed RB Jonathan Stewart to a one-year extension through 2018.

    Advice: Stewart turned 30 earlier this week. There was some belief that the Panthers could release Stewart this offseason, saving $6.25 million as a post-June 1 cut, but GM Dave Gettleman apparently thinks there's more in the tank. Stewart averaged a career-low 3.8 YPC (minimum 100 carries) last season, though he did score a seven-year-high nine touchdowns, seeing more goal-line work with the Panthers trying to limit Cam Newton's rushing opportunities. Gettleman has already said he'll draft a running back this year. Leonard Fournette at No. 8 could still be in play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:24 am

  • Bortles happy with progress in his mechanics
    Blak Bortles said his delivery is "more efficient, quicker" after working on his mechanics with 3DQB's Adam Dedeaux in California.

    Advice: "Just trying to tighten up the release, make that as quick as possible," Bortles said. "So never letting really the wrist get below the elbow, trying to keep that parallel and not dropping down. It didn't take a long time to fix it, but the first week it wasn't pretty. When you're trying to change things it's not going to be great but we were able to kind of hash that out and now it's going well." A video posted by 3DQB on Twitter shows Bortles' new compact delivery, but the true test will be when he tries it in games. Bortles will continue working with Dedeaux this spring where he's also been throwing with Marqise Lee. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 7:20 am

  • King says Cowboys 'willing to wait' on Romo
    Appearing on The Rich Eisen Show, Sports Illustrated's Peter King said he believes the Cowboys are "willing to wait" on Tony Romo.

    Advice: It's somewhat stunning that Romo hasn't been released yet, but as King notes, there's no urgency to move him with OTAs still over four weeks away. The Broncos don't seem to be taking the bait, so for now it looks like the Cowboys are trying to goad the Texans into making a trade. King also mentioned that Romo turned down a "very good job" three weeks ago. While King didn't explicitly say what it was, he strongly hinted the offer was for a job in television. It could be a while before this situation resolves itself. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:16 am

  • Vikings close the door on Peterson return
    Speaking Thursday, Vikings GM Rick Spielman confirmed the team would not be re-signing free agent Adrian Peterson.

    Advice: "With us signing (Latavius) Murray, Adrian will move on elsewhere," Spielman said of one of the greatest players in franchise history. The No. 7 overall pick of the 2007 draft, Peterson averaged 4.85 yards on his 2,418 Vikings carries. He tallied seven 1,000-yard seasons, including the No. 2 rushing campaign of all time in 2012 (2,097). Five days shy of his 32nd birthday, Peterson has drawn scant interest in free agency, visiting only the Seahawks. One-dimensional for this day and age, Peterson is coming off a season lost to injury and likely seeking too much money. Rotoworld.com Mar 16, 1:42 pm

  • Raiders, Lions teams to watch for Peterson?
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora suggested to "keep an eye on" the Raiders and Lions as potential landing spots for free agent Adrian Peterson.

    Advice: With the Vikings signing Latavius Murray on Thursday, that closes the door for Peterson in Minnesota, but it could possibly open one in Oakland as Murray's replacement. However, at the moment, it seems like the Raiders are willing to hold firm with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington heading into the draft. We haven't seen the Lions connected to Peterson much, but Detroit has made it known it wants to fix its running game. There could be a fit. The Bucs and Giants remain disinterested in 32-year-old (next week) Peterson. Rotoworld.com Mar 16, 6:58 am

  • Rams add RB Lance Dunbar on one-year deal
    Rams signed RB Lance Dunbar, formerly of the Cowboys, to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Dunbar, 27, will replace free agent Benny Cunningham behind Todd Gurley. In Washington, new coach Sean McVay hammered Rob Kelley on early downs and gave Chris Thompson the third-down work. A similar situation could unfold with Gurley and Dunbar. Gurley has shown little as a pass catcher at the pro level and struggles in pass protection. Dunbar has 68 catches across 54 games. Rotoworld.com Mar 16, 6:05 am
