  • Browns don't plan to franchise Terrelle Pryor
    The Browns don’t plan to franchise free agent Terrelle Pryor.

    Advice: This conflicts with a previous report the Browns were leaning toward the tag with Pryor. It sounds there's more optimism for an extension after the Browns met with Pryor’s agent this week. The Browns have until March 1 to make a decision on Pryor. Pryor is targeting $10-11 million annually. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:04 pm

  • Re-signing Stills remains priority for Miami
    The Miami Herald reports re-signing free agent Kenny Stills remains the Dolphins' top priority.

    Advice: Stills was a major part of Adam Gase's offense last year but is going to be hard to keep from reaching the market. Beat reporter Adam Beasley projects him to command a four-year, $40 million contract with around $15 million guaranteed. That may price Stills out of Miami's range given their depth at receiver. The Dolphins also need to sign walk-year WR Jarvis Landry to an extension. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:02 pm

  • Vikings hoping to re-sign Patterson
    ESPN’s Ben Goessling expects the Vikings to "make a strong effort" to re-sign free agent Cordarrelle Patterson.

    Advice: The Vikings want to keep Patterson, but only at a "reasonable price." That could be difficult with multiple teams likely to have interest. Patterson set career highs under OC Pat Shurmur last year and is a candidate to see more time at running back with Adrian Peterson's future up in the air. Re-signing with the Vikings would give Patterson his best chance at an offensive role. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:35 pm

  • Michael Floyd sentenced to 120 days in jail
    Impending free agent Michael Floyd pled guilty to one count of extreme DUI Thursday in Scottsdale City Court.

    Advice: The other six counts were dismissed. Floyd will serve a 120-day jail sentence, including 24 days in county jail and 96 days of home detention. He also must complete 30 hours of community service and pay a $5,115.99 fine. It's not a worst case scenario for Floyd, but it's pretty close. There was no way he was going to avoid jail time after blowing a .217. Coming off a down year, Floyd's free agent prospects aren't looking good. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:08 am

  • Saints looking for a return specialist?
    Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune named Cordarrelle Patterson as a player the Saints could pursue in free agency.

    Advice: To be clear, Katzenstein isn't reporting that New Orleans is interested. He's simply connecting the dots. The Saints' special teams were lacking last season and Patterson is easily the top return man on the market. Patterson also earned an increased passing-game role in Minnesota last year. Creative Saints coach Sean Payton could certainly put Patterson's gadget-touch skills to use on offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:32 am

  • Panthers could be option for Victor Cruz?
    ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes free agent Victor Cruz would be "worth a look" for Carolina.

    Advice: There's a natural connection, as GM Dave Gettleman worked for the Giants during Cruz's heyday. Newton thinks Cruz could fill the veteran leadership void left by Jerricho Cotchery after the 2015 season, and Cruz could return to the slot in Carolina after running a career-low 4.3 percent of his routes out of the slot in 2016. Cruz ran 68.6 percent of his routes from the slot in 2013. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:40 am

    Advice: "He tailors it to people’s strengths, which is always a plus," Smith said. "So I’m excited to see what his plan is for us. The offense, I have experience with it." Smith caught a career-best 11 touchdowns under Gary Kubiak in Baltimore. Kubiak and Shanahan run a variation of the same offense. Of course, the 49ers don't have a quarterback, yet. And Smith's future with the team is a bit up in the air with $8 million owed to him in salary and bonuses. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:32 am

He went on to confirm that talks have already begun, and are a "priority" for a team also dealing with Le'Veon Bell's free agency. The best receiver in the NFL turns 29 in July.

  • Thielen's agent angling for long-term deal
    Restricted free agent Adam Thielen's representation is pushing for a long-term deal.

    Advice: The Vikings should be able to retain Thielen on a second- or, to be safe, first-round tender, but agent Blake Baratz is looking for a long-term commitment. "They have the ability to do right by him, and he's far exceeded anyone's expectations," Baratz said. "We want to do something that makes sense for the team and makes sense for Adam. Otherwise, someone's going to be unhappy." A former undrafted free agent, Thielen should be looking to cash in coming off a breakout season, but the Vikings might want to see him do it again on a one-year tender, especially with 2016 first-rounder Laquon Treadwell waiting in the wings.

  • Report: Pryor intent on staying with Browns
    A source told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that free agent Terrelle Pryor has "instructed" his representation that he "wants to stay in Cleveland."

    Advice: Pryor is repped by Rosenhaus Sports. The Rosenhauses are expected to meet with Browns officials this week to begin contract negotiations, which should heat up in earnest at the NFL Combine (February 28 to March 6). Pryor is a top-three free agent wide receiver along with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson. His intentions on staying with the Browns suggest Pryor may be open to a small hometown discount. Pryor should be able to command $10-11 million per year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:52 pm

    Jaguars re-signed WR Arrelious Benn to a one-year contract.

    Advice: It comes with a second-year option. Benn has seemingly been in the league for decades, but is still somehow just 28 years old. He played just 101 snaps on offense last season, catching 5-of-10 targets for 116 yards and one touchdown. Benn sees most of his action on kick and punt coverage. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:13 am

    Advice: This directly contradicts ESPN Broncos beat man Jeff Legwold, who reported on Monday that Denver was "already working to at least meet with" Cruz. The Broncos should be aiming a lot higher in their quest for a No. 3 receiver. Cruz is already 30 years old and has been sapped of his athleticism and playmaking ability thanks to a 2014 patellar tendon tear and multiple calf ailments. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:21 am

  • Report: DEN working to meet with Victor Cruz
    According to ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold, Denver was "already working to at least meet with" free agent Victor Cruz as of late Monday.

    Advice: This is the first club that's been linked to Cruz since he was released early Monday. The Broncos are looking for a third option in the passing game behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders after cycling through a number of different No. 3 receivers last season and getting minimal help from their tight ends and running backs. Cruz would be an underwhelming signing, but Denver has shown a willingness to bring in aging veterans on the tail ends of their respective careers. Cruz shouldn't command much guaranteed money on a short-term deal. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:18 pm

  • Cardinals believe John Brown will be healthy
    Cardinals president Michael Bidwill believes the team has solved John Brown's sickle-cell issue.

    Advice: "He is very healthy, looks like they found the issue," Bidwill said. "We’ll get 'Smoke' back the way we had him." Brown missed only one game in 2016, but was limited for many others. His numbers plummeted from his breakout sophomore campaign. With Michael Floyd out of the desert, Brown will have an excellent shot at rebounding to WR3 status if he can remain healthy for 2017.

  • Report: Coates didn't undergo hand surgery
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Sammie Coates is recovering from sports-hernia surgery only, and not a hand operation.

    Advice: Coates' offseason health has gotten majorly muddled. It was reported last month he underwent hand surgery. It was then revealed Tuesday he underwent the sports-hernia operation, with the belief being it was in addition to the hand procedure. Now Fowler confirms Coates is recovering from just the hernia surgery. Coates' hand was a major issue during the season, while he was never listed with his groin. It's the second offseason inconsistency with the Steelers' injury report. The team could be staring at league punishment. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:17 am

  • Cost for Bears to tag Alshon again: $17.5M
    Franchise tagging free agent Alshon Jeffery for the second straight year would cost the Bears $17.5 million.

    Advice: While the Bears could theoretically fit that number under their cap, it is an exorbitant amount for a wide receiver, particularly one who has missed 11 games over the past two seasons to injuries and a suspension. Tagging Jeffery again seems unrealistic, which means the Bears would likely have to sign him long term to keep him. 27 years old and the clear-cut top receiver available, it is in Jeffery's best financial interest to test the open market.

  • '60 percent' chance Jets cut Brandon Marshall
    NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater believes there is a "60 percent" chance the Jets release Brandon Marshall.

    Advice: Marshall is owed $7.5 million in the final year of his deal, all of which the Jets can save against the cap by releasing him. New York will certainly attempt to trade Marshall before cutting him, but either way it will be something of a surprise if the veteran remains on the roster. If the Jets really want to blow it up, they can save $5.75 million against the cap by releasing Eric Decker. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:11 am

  • NFL scout on WR Victor Cruz: 'Probably done'
    One NFL scout told ESPN's Paul Kuharsky that free agent Victor Cruz is "probably done."

    Advice: Cruz wasn't just a salary cap casualty; the Giants cut Cruz on Monday because his on-field effectiveness is gone. Cruz lost late-season snaps to practice squad-type Tavarres King and UDFA Roger Lewis, and lacks the quickness to win in the slot and the vertical speed to win outside. Cruz is only 30 years old, but a 2014 patellar tendon tear essentially ended his career three years ago. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:28 pm

  • Giants ax 30-year-old Victor Cruz, save $7.5M
    Giants released WR Victor Cruz.

    Advice: This was an easy move for GM Jerry Reese. Despite Cruz's pleas to remain with the team, it made no sense to bring him back at his $9.4 million cap number. With the move, the Giants save $7.5 million against the cap. After missing 26 straight games from 2014-2015, Cruz returned this season to nab 39 catches for 586 yards and one score. At 30 years old coming off numerous lower-body injuries, including a patellar tendon tear, Cruz simply isn't the same player anymore. Finding a capable outside receiver opposite Odell Beckham should be a priority. Sterling Shepard played over 80 percent of his rookie snaps in the slot. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 9:37 am

    According to ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez, "chances are" the team will "move on" from free agent Kenny Britt.

    Advice: Britt was a Jeff Fisher guy, coming over from Tennessee to turn around his career. Britt answered with his first-ever 1,000-yard season in 2016 and was easily L.A.'s best player on offense. Strapped for talent, we'd think the Rams would want to keep Britt. But they may be looking elsewhere, possibly at DeSean Jackson or Pierre Garcon. Still just 28, Britt should land a decent pay day. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 7:09 am

    Advice: Cobb had a monster 2014 campaign, catching 91 balls for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, but his numbers have dipped in consecutive years since signing a four-year, $40 million pact. Including the playoffs, Cobb had just two 100-yard games in 2016 and was passed on the totem pole by Davante Adams behind Jordy Nelson. Due an $8.6 million salary, there are whispers Cobb may be asked to take a pay cut. Cobb turns 27 in August and has become a low-end WR3 in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 6:52 am

The Saints will soon have to decide whether to pick up Cooks' fifth-year option for 2018, which would pay him about $8 million. Cooks surfaced in trade rumors after he complained about not getting any targets against the Rams in Week 12, but he finished strong and there haven't been any rumblings since.
