  • Broncos haven't closed door on Tony Romo
    The Denver Channel's Troy Renck believes the Broncos "haven’t closed the door" on Tony Romo.

    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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 1:51 pm

  • Garrett Gilbert joins Panthers on 1-year deal

  • Report: Fox and CBS still courting Tony Romo
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tony Romo is drawing interest as a television analyst for Fox Sports and CBS.

    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. Injuries and the emergence of Dak Prescott have limited the 36-year-old to just five appearances over his last two seasons. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:08 pm

  • Jets GM won't commit to McCown as starter
    Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't commit to Josh McCown as the team's starting quarterback.

    Advice: Maccagnan said that decision will be made by coach Todd Bowles. He added that it's "highly unlikely" the Jets will add another quarterback in free agency but acknowledged that drafting one is a possibility. McCown is still the odds-on favorite to start but it's a near certainty that his body will break down at some point. That would open the door for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg to make starts later in the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:37 am

  • 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 Yesterday, 11:22 am

  • Will Johnson had visits with Jets and Falcons
    Free agent FB Will Johnson recently visited the Jets and Falcons.

    Advice: Johnson missed all of last season with nerve trouble in his shoulder. He's a competent blocker when healthy and also has some experience as a ball carrier. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:10 am

  • Josh Hill (fibula) to start running soon
    Saints TE Josh Hill (leg) is expected to resume running soon.

    Advice: Per Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, Hill is "progressing well" in his recovery from a broken fibula. Hill probably won't be ready for OTAs but should be fine by training camp. Coby Fleener remains the lead tight end in New Orleans, though Hill was starting to cut into his workload before he got hurt last year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 8:48 am

  • Patriots unlikely to bring back Michael Floyd
    ESPN's Mike Reiss believes the Patriots re-signing free agent Michael Floyd is a "long shot" after the addition of Brandin Cooks.

    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 Yesterday, 8:00 am

  • Skins take flier on former 2nd-round WR Quick
    Redskins signed WR Brian Quick, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year contract.

    Advice: The Rams reached for Quick at No. 33 overall in the 2012 draft, and it took him years to figure out the pro game coming out of small-school Appalachian State. Rams staffers were comparing him to Vincent Jackson and Terrell Owens coming out of college. Obviously, those comps never materialized, but Quick has good size at 6'3/218 and has a strong 14.3 career YPR average. Quick figures to slide in as the No. 4 receiver as long as Josh Doctson is healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:13 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 Yesterday, 6:24 am

  • Mark Sanchez taking his talents to Chicago
    Bears agreed to terms with QB Mark Sanchez, formerly of the Cowboys, to a one-year, $2 million contract with $1 million guaranteed.

    Advice: The deal carries a maximum value of $4 million and comes with a $750,00 signing bonus. He slides in as the No. 2 behind Mike Glennon. Unproven, Glennon is one of the league's worst starters on paper, so there's a chance Sanchez makes 2017 starts. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2009 draft, Sanchez has attempted just 109 passes over the past two seasons. The 30 year old is a mediocre backup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:49 pm

  • Jets add Quinton Patton to receiver corps
    Jets signed WR Quinton Patton, formerly of the 49ers.

    Advice: Coming off a career high 37 catches for 408 yards, Patton is reuniting with WRs coach John Morton, who coached Patton the first two years of his career under Jim Harbaugh. Not an explosive athlete, Patton makes his name with competence and sure hands. He'll fight for No. 3 or 4 duties in New York. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:53 am

  • Julio expected to be 'full strength' for camp
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Julio Jones (foot surgery) is expected to be "full strength" for the start of training camp.

    Advice: Jones' initial timeline had him questionable for the start of camp, but apparently a more optimistic estimate has emerged. Either way, the superstar figures to be babied through the summer, and perhaps even held out of the preseason. The only goal is having Jones ready for Week 1, which he should be.

  • Shane Vereen agrees to $1M pay cut
    Shane Vereen agreed to reduce his base salary from $3.15 million to $2.15 million.

    Advice: The details of the agreement are not available, but Vereen will likely be able to earn some of that money back via incentives. The Giants made it clear Vereen would return when they paid his $500,000 roster bonus earlier this month, but this move gives them some financial relief in the event he is not able to come back from tearing his triceps twice last season.

  • Free agent Mark Sanchez to visit Bears
    Free agent QB Mark Sanchez will visit the Bears on Thursday.

    Advice: It's Sanchez's first action of free agency. Nothing more than a clipboard-holder at this point in his career, Sanchez would slide in behind Mike Glennon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:25 pm

  • Jets find stopgap option, sign Josh McCown
    Jets signed QB Josh McCown, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year, $6-million contract.

    Advice: The $6 million is fully guaranteed, and he can earn an additional $7 million in playtime and team-based incentives. Set to turn 38 in July, McCown is the definition of a stopgap option who the Jets will hope can give them competent quarterback play while they revamp their quarterback room. Unfortunately, McCown seems to get hurt every time he touches the field at this point in his career, making it very unlikely he lasts a full season. Unless they are content to watch Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty start multiple games, the Jets still have some work to do. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:08 pm

  • 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 Sunday, 9:16 am

  • Jets host visit with WR Quinton Patton
    Free agent WR Quinton Patton visited the Jets.

    Advice: It's his first known visit. Jets OC John Morton was Patton's WR coach for two years in San Francisco. His scheme familiarity makes him a potential fit in a sub-package role. Patton is coming off a career high 37 catches and 408 yards. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:49 pm

  • McCown visit 'going very well,' talking deal
    SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports Josh McCown's visit with the Jets is "going very well" and the two sides have "discussed contract parameters."

    Advice: It seems each side is serious about a deal. In theory, McCown is a good stop-gap option and mentor as the Jets attempt to develop Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, but McCown has not lasted more than a few games before getting hurt the last couple years. If the 37-year-old ends up being the Jets' only addition at quarterback, Petty or Hackenberg likely will see the field in 2017. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:04 am

  • Josh McCown to visit with Jets this weekend
    Free agent Josh McCown is visiting the Jets on Saturday.

    Advice: It's his second visit after meeting with the Cowboys last week. Unlike in Dallas, McCown would have a chance to start in New York where the Jets are undergoing a full rebuild. If he signs, the 37-year-old could be used as a one-year seat-warmer while the Jets groom a franchise quarterback. McCown has been a serviceable backup throughout his career but has also proven extremely fragile. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:03 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 Thursday, 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 Thursday, 6:58 am
