  • Robert Griffin due $750K roster bonus on 3/11
    Robert Griffin III is due a $750,000 roster bonus on March 11.

    Advice: While not an exorbitant sum, it does provide a point in time for the Browns to make a decision on RG3 -- release him before March 11 or pay him the $750K bonus. The Akron Beacon Journal confirms "it would be more surprising if Griffin were retained than if he were cut." Griffin likely isn't long for the roster. Rotoworld.com 58 minutes ago

  • 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 Today, 7:36 am

  • Many connections between Pace, Garoppolo
    Jimmy Garoppolo's agent, Donald Yee, represents Saints coach Sean Payton, with whom Bears GM Ryan Pace worked for ten years in New Orleans.

    Advice: There are all kinds of connections to be made like this around the NFL, but Pace's connections to Garoppolo especially stand out. Payton and Pace's Saints were rumored to be infatuated with Garoppolo in the 2014 draft and allegedly considered taking him toward the end of the first round. Payton, Pace, and Garoppolo are all alums of Eastern Illinois. Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "Yee knows well just how much Payton and Pace valued Garoppolo in the (2014) draft," and "putting a deal together between those two wouldn’t be difficult."

    According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Tony Romo is willing to "massage" his contract in order to facilitate a trade.

    Advice: This flexibility is critical if Dallas is going to get trade compensation. Romo must be willing to restructure his contract for any deal to get done, and if he wasn't it's entirely possible Romo would already have been released. The Cowboys should have a better idea of what they may be able to get for Romo when NFL teams convene at the Combine, which begins on Tuesday, February 28. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:17 pm

  • Report: Rams could target Cousins in 2018
    MMQB's Albert Breer believes the Rams could be a player for Kirk Cousins if things don't work out with Jared Goff in 2017.

    Advice: The Redskins were once content to let the market determine Cousins' value, but the landscape has changed now that Cousins supporters Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan landed head-coaching jobs. Shanahan is already gunning for Cousins to join him in San Francisco, while Los Angeles could be a possibility next year if Goff falls flat again in 2017. With Cousins attracting interest elsewhere, the Redskins would be wise to lock him into a long-term deal as soon as possible. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:32 am

    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he is not looking for a "short-term fix" at quarterback.

    Advice: "You want to make a commitment to somebody," Shanahan said. "In order to do that, you better make sure you’re on the same page with everyone else and you put the time in, you talk to people who’ve been with these guys." These comments would seem to shoot down reports of Matt Schaub and Brian Hoyer being options, but those guys will be nothing but bridge quarterbacks at best. The 49ers could commit to an early-round pick like UNC's Mitch Trubisky and still have him compete with a veteran in camp. With little chance of winning right now, that might even be the best option.

    Advice: Schaub has been previously speculated as a fit in San Francisco after spending the last two years with Kyle Shanahan in Atlanta. Hoyer played for Shanahan in Cleveland, and has been far more effective in recent years than Schaub. Barring an unlikely-if-intriguing match with Kirk Cousins, the 49ers will be scraping the bottom of the barrel for veteran quarterback options.

Dunne expects the Bills to be "patient," sign a veteran, and perhaps draft a quarterback in 2017 or wait for 2018 to select their signal caller of the future.

  • Report: Cousins doesn't want to be with Skins
    ESPN's Jason Reid reports "former Redskins officials who know Kirk Cousins" have said Cousins doesn't want to be in Washington and would prefer to be franchise-tagged rather than sign a long-term deal.

    Advice: The sides have made what sounds like zero progress on a long-term deal, and Cousins may be fed up with the way Washington handled negotiations the past two years. The front office clearly didn't believe in Cousins last year, making him prove himself again on a one-year tag, and Cousins answered the bell with a big season. It's fair to wonder if the "former Redskins officials" Reid is referring to is someone from the old Shanahan regime, as then-OC Kyle Shanahan literally "stood on a table" for Cousins when they drafted him. Now the head coach in quarterback-less San Francisco, Shanahan remains enamored with Cousins, who has made it known the feeling is mutual. If Cousins is able to force his way out of D.C., a reunion in Santa Clara would be a good bet. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:49 am

    Advice: Going on 40, Brady is already signed through 2019. His most recent extension came just last year, though it includes cap hits of $22 million in both 2018 and 2019. That, of course, is modest for a player of Brady's stature and effectiveness. Considering Brady's age and team-friendly contract, there certainly won't be a sense of urgency from the Pats to extend him. Perhaps Brady is angling for a deserved raise.

MMQB's Peter King wrote he does not think Garoppolo will be moved earlier this week, however, and now Werder is reporting the same information.

Multiple beat writers have stated they expect Pittsburgh to re-sign Jones, who seems unlikely to generate much free agent interest elsewhere.

Either way, the Chiefs aren't likely to pick it up, which would make Foles a free agent. It would save the Chiefs $6.75 million in cap space.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick technically signed a two-year deal last offseason, but language in the contract allowed the team to void the second year five days after the Super Bowl. Because his $10 million signing bonus was spread out over two years, voiding Fitzpatrick's deal will result in $5 million in dead money against the Jets' 2017 salary cap.

  • 'Good chance' Cousins gets more than Luck
    According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, there's a "good chance" free agent Kirk Cousins will command a pricier contract than Andrew Luck.

    Advice: Luck signed the largest contract in NFL history last offseason, landing $140 million over six years with $87 million guaranteed. Cousins has a real chance to top that if he and the Redskins reach a long-term deal. With salary caps on the rise, Derek Carr, Matt Ryan, and Matthew Stafford are all looking at enormous forthcoming pay days. It's a good time to be an NFL franchise quarterback.

  • Bills have the cap room to acquire Tony Romo
    Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News believes the Bills have enough cap space to take on Tony Romo's salary.

    Advice: That's only if the Bills part with Tyrod Taylor, which would free up $13 million in cap room and cover most of Romo's $14 million salary if the Bills acquired him via trade. Buffalo could have some appeal to Romo with a strong offensive line, elite running game, and legit No. 1 receiver in Sammy Watkins. With that said, the Bills are still an extreme long shot to land Romo. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 10:49 am

  • Broncos unlikely to have interest in Kap
    The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala doesn't expect the Broncos to "circle back" and have interest in Colin Kaepernick.

    Advice: The Broncos were hot on Kaepernick's trail last offseason when they were trying to replace Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. GM John Elway reportedly met with Kap in person, but compensation couldn't be worked out as Kap was unwilling to take a pay cut. Elway settled for Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch in the first round. The Kaepernick-to-Denver ship remains docked. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 8:28 am
