  • Eli Manning to announce retirement on Friday
    Eli Manning announced his retirement from the NFL after 16 seasons.

    Advice: The 39-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP will reportedly hang up his cleats with a 117-117 record over 16 seasons with the Giants. He quietly walks away with the seventh-most passing yards (57,023) and passing touchdowns (366) in league history, somehow never missing a game due to injury. Though his play clearly tailed off in his waning seasons before inevitably passing the torch to No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones, Manning's perfect 38-yard rope to Mario Manningham in Super Bowl XLVI and, of course, his 32-yard strike to David Tyree's helmet in Super Bowl XLII will both live in perpetuity among February highlight reels. His two Super Bowl rings likely make him a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame despite conflicting opinions. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:55 pm

  • Dolphins 'fully expect' Fitzpatrick to return
    Dolphins GM Chris Grier said he "fully expects" Ryan Fitzpatrick to be back in 2020.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick would account for $8 million on Miami's books if he's on their roster in 2020 and it sounds as if the team has no interest in parting ways. The 37-year-old performed better than expected given the circumstances, posting four-year highs in passing yards (3,529), passing touchdowns (20), and rushing yards (243) behind the Fins' atrocious O-line play. With only one year left on his contract, the Dolphins are fully expected to draft a prospect and develop him behind the scenes (and behind Fitzpatrick) for a full season before thrusting him into the fire under center.

  • Saints have same outlook on Brees' contract
    Saints GM Mickey Loomis said the organization's view on bringing Drew Brees back is "no different than it's been the last few years."

    Advice: "It's easy to take him for granted yet I don't take him for granted," Loomis said. "Look, if any of us are surprised at what he does, then we're just not very smart." 41-year-old Brees finished with a league-high 74.3 percent completion rate last year, rebounding from a mid-season thumb injury to toss 24 touchdowns and seven picks over 11 games. New Orleans clearly sounds intent on letting Brees decide his own fate with the franchise, likely pinning him under center in the Superdome in 2020. He was also reportedly contacted by an unknown network to transition full-time into a television game analyst role. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:54 am

  • Titans sign several to reserve/future pacts
    Titans signed QB Logan Woodside, DE Amani Bledsoe, RB Dalyn Dawkins, LB Nigel Harris, TE Parker Hesse, C Daniel Munyer, DB Kareem Orr, OG David Quessenberry, WR Trevion Thompson, and RB Shaun Wilson to reserve/future contracts.

    Advice: Woodside spent the year on the Titans' practice squad after giving his career a bit of a jolt in the defunct AAF with the San Antonio Commanders. Dawkins is the nephew of Brian Dawkins and had a small taste of the NFL at one point this year when Derrick Henry missed Week 16. Wilson appeared in five games for the Bucs in 2018.

  • Stephen Jones: Prescott deal 'top priority'
    Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said extending Dak Prescott is the "top priority" this offseason.

    Advice: The Cowboys are deep in talks with Prescott but have yet to get a deal done. That should happen soon, though the franchise tag still remains an option. Dallas has already said they view Prescott as their quarterback of the future. Prescott is likely to command $30-plus million annually. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:07 pm

  • 'A lot of buzz' about Rivers landing in Tampa
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports there's "a lot of buzz" about Tampa Bay being a possible landing spot for Philip Rivers.

    Advice: Rivers recently packed up his home in San Diego and moved cross country to Florida to be closer to his family (in Alabama). That doesn't necessarily make the Bucs his first choice, but the declining 38-year-old impending free agent will undoubtedly have fewer options than past years following his fewest touchdowns thrown (23) since 2007. Rivers isn't the worst one-year stopgap if Tampa Bay fails to iron out a deal with Jameis Winston. Tom Brady, Ryan Tannehill, Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater will also likely crop up at some point as potential fill-ins under center. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:32 am

  • Rodgers saves face with 326 yards, two scores
    Aaron Rodgers completed 31-of-39 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Packers' 37-20, NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: The Packers got buried by the 49ers' running game in the first half, falling behind 27-0. A Rodgers lost fumble on a botched snap was essentially a game-ending development. As was the case much of the time in 2019, Rodgers lacked aggression before the break, prioritizing avoiding mistakes over hunting for big plays. Of course, it was often hard to blame him, as Packers pass catchers not named Davante Adams frequently appeared to have no idea where they were going this season. That includes tonight. After failing to address their receiver corps last offseason, it will be an absolute must for the Packers this time around. Although he is no longer the mover he once was, Rodgers maintains jaw-dropping arm talent. His advanced 2019 stats tell the tale of an overly cautious quarterback, but a supporting cast reboot could easily have him on the comeback trail in 2020. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:48 pm

  • #QBWinz: Jimmy G completes six passes vs. GB
    Jimmy Garoppolo completed 6-of-8 passes for 77 yards in the 49ers' 37-20, NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

    Advice: A stat line that speaks to the problems with quarterback win-loss records. Garoppolo's eight attempts were the fewest for a starting quarterback in conference championship game history. Garoppolo did nothing so there is nothing to discuss. He is 17-of-27 for 208 yards through two postseason games. We would assume he will be needed for more vs. the high-flying Chiefs, but the 49ers' run game has proven capable of dominating any opponent. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:44 pm

  • Tannehill throws 2 TDs as Titans' run ends
    Ryan Tannehill completed 21-of-31 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns in Tennessee's AFC Championship loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: With only one year left on his contract, Miami gifted 31-year-old Tannehill to Tennessee for pennies back in March. It took the Titans moving to 2-4 with their backs against the wall in mid-October, but those fourth- and seventh-round selections GM Jon Robinson casually handed over eventually morphed into the league’s third-ranked offense in points (30.4) and yards per game (406.2) from the moment Tannehill took over for Marcus Mariota in Week 7. The free-agent-to-be also joined Drew Brees (2018) and Steve Young (1994) in becoming just the third quarterback in the last three decades to finish the year with both a completion percentage and red zone completion percentage over 70 percent. With OC Arthur Smith set to return, expect the organization to bring back Tannehill with a lofty extension or, at the very least, the franchise tag after he led the league in passing yards (1,157) and passer rating (144.4) from play-action during his 7-3 run to close the regular season.

  • Mahomes, Chiefs punch ticket to Super Bowl 54
    Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-35 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns, adding eight scrambles for 53 yards and a rushing score in Kansas City's Conference Championship victory over the Titans.

    Advice: Trailing 17-7 through the first quarter, Kansas City and Mahomes miraculously rattled off three consecutive scores drives to take a commanding 21-17 lead into the half. The team would inevitably score 28 unanswered points, including a 27-yard touchdown scramble where Mahomes seemingly tightroped the left sideline while averting spying LB Rashaan Evans and dashing ahead to gift the Chiefs their first-half lead. In all, Mahomes and the Chiefs' O finished the afternoon with scoring drives of 88, 86, 74, 73, and 63 yards, seeing both Tyreek Hill (5/67/2) and Sammy Watkins (7/114/1) get loose over the top of Tennessee's secondary. If there's a way to stop the Chiefs' aerial attack, both the Texans and Titans didn't unveil the blueprint. Super Bowl 54 will be the city of Kansas City's first title appearance in the last 50 years. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:11 pm

  • Rivers moves family from San Diego to Florida
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter report Philip Rivers has "permanently" moved his family from San Diego to Florida.

    Advice: Rivers, who hails from Alabama, is moving cross country to be closer to his family. "What this means football-wise is to be determined but it was time for us to move back closer to home," Rivers said in a text message to ESPN Sunday morning. This could be a sign the long-time Charger is preparing to play elsewhere in 2020. The 38-year-old Rivers will soon join a loaded free-agent class that includes fellow quarterbacks Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Jameis Winston, Ryan Tannehill, Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater.

  • Tom Brady to be 'methodical' in free agency
    According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Tom Brady will take a "methodical approach" to his upcoming free agency.

    Advice: Brady is prepared to hit the open market for the first time in his 20-year career. While a return to New England remains in play for the future Hall of Famer, the 42-year-old plans to "do his due diligence to assess all realistic possibilities." La Canfora adds that Brady has not lost his love for the game and still anticipates playing until he's 45. The three-time MVP is reportedly "eager" to mentor a young quarterback in hopes of leaving his next organization—or his current one if he remains in Foxboro—in good hands when he retires. Brady's free agency will undoubtedly be among the offseason's top storylines. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:30 am

  • Kyler Murray would 'love' to play two sports
    Speaking Thursday, Kyler Murray did not shoot down the idea of one day resuming his baseball career.

    Advice: Arizona Republic columnist Bob McManaman asked Murray if he would ever consider playing football and baseball in the same calendar year. "Athletically, I think yeah, I could do it," Murray said. "I’ve been playing both my whole life. I would love to add that to the résumé." Murray continued with expanded thoughts. "I don’t understand why in sports they try to marginalize it. They try to make you pick one and I get it, but we’ll see. I think it would be fun. Right now, though, I’m just focused on football." It's an eyebrow raising response from the former top-10 pick of the Oakland A's but there is zero indication this is something Murray is considering in the near future. The Cardinals are not allowed to expressly prohibit Murray from playing baseball, though doing so would void all future guarantees in his contract. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:49 pm

  • Steelers remain unsure on Big Ben's timeline
    Steelers owner Art Rooney said the team still doesn't have a concrete timeline for Ben Roethlisberger's rehab.

    Advice: "Everything we hear so far is positive," Rooney said. "He really, still, is in the early stages of his rehab. He hasn't been able to do a whole lot yet. That's going to start to ramp up here over the next couple of months, obviously." Roethlisberger is still expected to undergo a "significant" checkup in February to reveal his true status moving forward. As it stands, the 38-year-old won't be involved in the team's offseason workouts or camp as he continues with an eye on returning for Week 1. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:55 pm

  • Jameis Winston (thumb) spotted with cast
    Jameis Winston was seen with a cast on his broken right thumb in an Instagram story posted Tuesday.

    Advice: The former Heisman winner suffered a hairline fracture in his throwing thumb in Week 14 but still appeared in all 16 games for Tampa Bay. The cast would suggest Winston underwent surgery at some point. Headed for free agency this offseason, most reports suggest the Bucs will retain Winston on the franchise tag, which carries a projected $26.895 million salary for 2020. The fifth-year gunslinger led the sport in passing yards this past season—his 5,109 were the eighth-most in NFL history—but also committed a league-high 30 interceptions.

  • Wilson's 341 yards not enough in Seattle loss
    Russell Wilson completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' 28-23, Divisional round loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Wilson also led the team in rushing with 64 yards on seven attempts. He was the offense, as Marshawn Lynch and Travis Homer combined for 39 yards on 15 carries. Seattle stubbornly tried to hammer the run early and often, sticking with it too deep into the contest, much like it had most of the season. Wilson routinely bails OC Brian Schottenheimer out, but there just wasn't enough time in this one to complete the comeback. A late Malik Turner drop didn't help the cause. Wilson threw for the second-most yards of his career this season, completing over 66% of his throws for 4,110 yards and a 31:5 TD:INT mark. He also rushed for 342 yards and three additional scores. After inking an extension in April, Wilson is under contract through 2023. It would be nice if the Seahawks unleashed him more, but that's never been in the cards for coach Pete Carroll.

  • Rodgers throws pair of TDs; Packers to NFCCG
    Aaron Rodgers completed 16-of-27 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 28-23, Divisional round win over the Seahawks Sunday.

    Advice: Rodgers has just one 250-yard passing game since Week 8. While the stats haven't been there much of this season, Rodgers made some truly ridiculous throws in this one, including a dime to Davante Adams on third down late in the fourth quarter to help seal the win. He later hit Jimmy Graham on the next third down to end the game and get the win. Rodgers particularly flamed Seattle on third downs. The No. 2 seed Packers will travel to San Francisco for the NFC title game next Sunday evening. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 6:49 pm

  • Mahomes slings 5 TDs in rout of Houston
    Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-35 passes for 321 yards and five touchdowns while rushing seven times for an additional 53 yards Sunday in the Chiefs’ Divisional Round win over Houston.

    Advice: The box score doesn't do this game justice as Sunday's rollercoaster at Arrowhead was somehow even more bonkers than the final numbers would indicate. Thanks to a muffed punt courtesy of the usually sure-handed Tyreek Hill and a number of other first-half blunders, the Chiefs found themselves in an early 24-0 hole. That would be a death sentence for most quarterbacks, but Mahomes, the reigning MVP, is not like most quarterbacks. He resurrected KC in breathtaking fashion Sunday, performing CPR on the Chiefs by hurling four second-quarter touchdowns, matching an NFL record set by Doug Williams in Super Bowl XII. Three of those landed in the waiting arms of Travis Kelce, including a masterful toe-tap by Mahomes, who somehow managed to stay behind the line of scrimmage. After surviving Sunday's early scare, the Chiefs will host the upset-minded Titans in next week's AFC title game with the winner headed to Super Bowl LIV in Miami three weeks from today.

  • One network pursuing Brees as TV analyst
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports at least one network has contacted Drew Brees to see if he'd be interested in becoming a television game analyst.

    Advice: Per Schefter, that network was not ESPN. The soon-to-be 41-year-old (his birthday is Wednesday) has yet to make a decision about his playing future, though 2019 showed the future Hall of Famer still has plenty left in the tank. The Saints find themselves at somewhat of a crossroads with all three of their quarterbacks—Brees, Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill—headed for free agency this offseason. Ultimately we'd expect Brees back for another season in the Big Easy, though a broadcasting career could be in his future. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 10:31 am

  • Mahomes in line for 'mammoth' extension
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chiefs are expected to reward Patrick Mahomes with a "mammoth" contract extension this offseason.

    Advice: Per Rapsheet, the Chiefs haven't "really dug into" contract talks with Mahomes outside of some early planning, though a deal should get done this offseason, likely after a new CBA is reached. The reigning MVP's expected windfall should make him the highest-paid player in league history, at least until the Texans lock up Deshaun Watson, who is also up for a lucrative extension. Still just 24, Mahomes can lead the Chiefs to their second straight AFC title game with a victory Sunday over Houston. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 7:37 am
