  • Panthers expect Cam to pass physical in March
    The Athletics' Jourdan Rodrigue reports the Panthers believe QB Cam Newton is likely to pass a physical and be cleared for football activities in March.

    Advice: Rodrigue added that the Panthers are still likely to exercise precaution through spring workouts if Newton remains with the team. It's been awhile since we've seen Newton at full health. His 2018 season was cut short by a bum shoulder that limited his arm strength, while he played just two games in 2019 due to persistent foot problems. There have been few players in the history of the league that offer Newton's elite dual-threat ability, but his inability to stay healthy in recent years is problematic when predicting how the soon to be 31-year-old QB will perform later in his career.

  • Report: Bridgewater to command $30M per year?
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Teddy Bridgewater is expected to have a "strong market" in free agency and could land a multi-year deal, paying him around $30 million per year.

    Advice: Fowler added, "Multiple teams expect Bridgewater to have a strong free agency market as a starting or bridge quarterback for a team in transition. Widely expected to be on the move unless Drew Brees retires." The number is certainly a bit shocking, although Bridgewater does deserve credit for posting above-average rankings in adjusted yards per attempt (15th), QB Rating (11th), TD Rate (13th) and completion rate (6th) among 38 QBs to start at least five games in 2019. Of course, the Saints did offer Bridgewater just about the most QB-friendly offense possible, as he was seldom asked to do more than check the ball down to Alvin Kamara or Michael Thomas. Either way: Bridgewater figures to command starter-caliber money from someone in 2020. The Saints will likely need to make a decision between keeping Bridgewater or Taysom Hill if Drew Brees wishes to continue playing in 2020. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:13 pm

  • Browns release TE Demetrius Harris, 3 others
    Browns released TE Demetrius Harris.

    Advice: The team also terminated the contracts of CB T.J. Carrie, OL Eric Kush, and LB Adarius Taylor. Starting TE David Njoku spent most of last year on injured reserve, but Harris still (surprisingly) took a backseat to Ricky Seals-Jones, underwhelming for 15/149/3 receiving in his lone season with the Browns. Only 28 and revered for his blocking prowess, Harris will undoubtedly land elsewhere as a multi-faceted goal line threat in the open market. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 am

  • Tomlin expects Big Ben to be ready for Week 1
    Speaking Monday morning on ESPN's First Take, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed he expects Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) to be ready for Week 1.

    Advice: "I have no hesitation," said Tomlin, who also addressed Myles Garrett's assertion that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur in their altercation last year. "This guy is the ultimate competitor. He dropped the gauntlet down. He made the statement he's coming back." Roethlisberger was lost to season-ending elbow surgery early in the 2019 campaign and still isn't "doing anything," according to Tomlin, though the long-tenured Pittsburgh coach fully expects to have Ben in the saddle for Week 1. Even without their star quarterback, the Steelers still finished a respectable 8-8 last season. They should be back in the playoff hunt if Roethlisberger returns to his pre-injury form in 2020.

  • Jordan Reed still in concussion protocol
    Redskins coach Ron Rivera confirms Jordan Reed remains in the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: He's still recovering from a concussion suffered six months ago in a preseason game in Atlanta. Reed resumed practicing three weeks after his initial diagnosis but a recurrence of symptoms landed him on injured reserve about a month later. Washington hosted Panthers castoff Greg Olsen for a visit last week, suggesting the team is finally ready to move on from Reed, who has been concussed on at least seven occasions since debuting in 2013. The 29-year-old's release would free up $8.5 million in cap space. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:07 am

  • Jets feel Le'Veon Bell put on weight in 2019
    According to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini, the odds of Le'Veon Bell being traded this offseason are "remote."

    Advice: Despite coach Adam Gase's open antagonism of Bell throughout his debut season in the Big Apple, Cimini doesn't see a trade coming to fruition without the Jets taking on a significant portion of his 2020 salary, which calls for a whopping $13.5 million in guarantees. Even then, Cimini wouldn't anticipate New York getting much in return for Bell (a Day 3 draft pick is probably the best they could hope for), who the Jets believe put on weight in 2019 while losing much of his explosiveness. Only Buccaneers plodder Peyton Barber averaged fewer yards per rushing attempt (3.1) than Bell (3.2) last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:43 am

  • Dion Lewis a candidate for offseason release
    ESPN's Turron Davenport expects the Titans to release Dion Lewis this offseason.

    Advice: The Titans need all the cap space they can get with offensive cornerstones Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill both headed for free agency. Cutting Lewis, who has largely been a non-factor since joining the Titans on a four-year deal in 2018, would seem to be a no-brainer. His release would create $4 million in cap savings while leaving behind just $1.1 million in dead money. In addition to Lewis, Davenport suggested Tennessee could also move on from pricy veterans Ryan Succop, Cameron Wake and Delanie Walker. With Tannehill a candidate for the franchise tag and Henry reportedly seeking Zeke money, the Titans have their work cut out for them this offseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:05 am

  • Rudolph considering legal action vs. Garrett?
    Mason Rudolph called Myles Garrett's assertion that he used a racial slur during an altercation last season a "bold-faced lie" and "1000% false."

    Advice: "I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial slur," tweeted Rudolph. "This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character." Garrett was suspended for the final six games of 2019 after bashing Rudolph over the head with his own helmet, a response he said was triggered by Rudolph's use of a racial epithet. Despite there being no audio to back up his claim, Garrett repeated his assertion in a recent interview with ESPN's Mina Kimes. Not only has Rudolph denied the accusation, but it appears the Steelers backup is prepared to pursue legal action against Garrett. "Mr. Garrett maliciously uses this false allegation to coax sympathy, hoping to be excused for what is clearly inexcusable behavior," Rudolph's lawyer, Timothy Younger, shared in a statement Saturday. "He is now exposed to legal liability." Despite Garrett's reinstatement, this incident is a long way from being resolved. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:06 am

  • 'No movement' in Patriots' talks with Brady
    ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss confirms the team has had "no movement" in contract talks with impending free agent Tom Brady.

    Advice: The Patriots only have a month to hammer out a deal with Brady before the legal tampering period begins on March 16. The first-time free agent has already drawn interest from the Raiders, who are reportedly prepared to offer Brady a two-year, $60-million contract to be the team's headliner upon their move to Las Vegas. Reiss still puts the Patriots' odds of retaining Brady at 80 percent, though the next month of rumors and speculation promises to be a wild ride. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:02 am

  • Antonio Brown plans to attend Combine
    Free agent Antonio Brown told TMZ he plans to attend the NFL Combine in Indianapolis later this month.

    Advice: "I'm excited and looking forward to seeing them," said Brown, who added that he's "ready to get things back on the right page." AB has been apologetic of late, extending the olive branch to former quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, police in his hometown of Hollywood, Florida and the NFL as a whole. It may be too little too late for the seven-time Pro Bowler, who is facing felony battery and burglary charges stemming from an incident at his home last month. Meanwhile commissioner Roger Goodell has said the league's investigation of Brown's alleged sexual misconduct, which prompted his release from the Patriots last fall, is ongoing. Despite what he might think, we're a long way away from seeing Brown back on an NFL field. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:43 am

  • Jags not a lock to pick up Fournette's option
    The Florida Times-Union suggests the Jaguars aren't a lock to pick up Leonard Fournette's fifth-year option.

    Advice: Fournette rebounded with the best season of his career after a down 2018 clouded his status in Jacksonville. It should be an easy decision to exercise his option, but Fournette carries a $10.1 million price tag as a former top-10 pick and comes with injury risks that could guarantee his salary. With limited cap space and Fournette's spotty conditioning, it's possible the Jags let him play out his rookie deal before addressing his contract next offseason. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:42 am

  • Bucs yet to make decision on Winston's future
    Coach Bruce Arians said the Bucs have yet to make a decision on Jameis Winston's future with the team.

    Advice: "Really nothing has changed," Arians said. "You get about three days to decide. The legal tampering period. Is somebody going to get let go? What's the trade values? It's really monotonous right now because you don't have any answers." The Bucs have "legitimate interest" in Philip Rivers, who moved to Florida this offseason. They've also been linked to Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater, and Ryan Tannehill, but whether they view Rivers or any of the other options as upgrades on Winston remains to be seen. With Winston contract talks going nowhere, signs continue to point to the Bucs going in a different direction. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:00 am

  • 'Seems highly unlikely' Jets re-sign Anderson
    The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "seems highly unlikely" the Jets re-sign impending free agent Robby Anderson.

    Advice: League sources tell Hughes that Anderson is expected to receive $13-15 million per year on a multi-year pact, while the Jets would prefer to sign him for closer to $10 million annually. Anderson has already said he won't be giving the Jets a "hometown" discount. The soon-to-be 27-year-old (in May) is a top-three free-agent wideout, along with Amari Cooper and A.J. Green.

  • Report: Raiders to offer Brady 2 years, $60M
    Sports reporter Larry Fitzgerald Sr. has been "told" the Raiders are prepared to offer impending free agent Tom Brady a two-year, $60 million contract.

    Advice: Fitzgerald Sr. doesn't have an extensive track record of breaking news, but he's a longtime member in the sports media world, based out of Minnesota. He's not the type of person to just throw something against the wall. The Raiders have been linked to Brady multiple times since the end of the Patriots' season, with coach Jon Gruden and owner Mark Davis looking to make a splash as the team embarks on Las Vegas. Brady would certainly qualify. It will likely take serious money to lure Brady away from Foxboro. This offer would qualify as such. The Brady free agency should be fascinating.

    Rashaad Penny (knee) has been cleared for rehab work.

    Advice: Penny was able to use a stationary bike for the first time since undergoing knee surgery. It's a good first step, but he's still facing an uphill battle to be ready for Week 1. Penny may ultimately be a candidate for the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:44 am

    The Athletic's Chris Burke believes Ty Johnson "won't be guaranteed a roster spot" going into training camp.

    Advice: Johnson never had more than a part-time role as a rookie despite Kerryon Johnson missing half the season to a knee injury. He'll enter training camp behind Kerryon, Bo Scarbrough, and potentially Wes Hills. Even if Johnson keeps his spot, his handcuff value is limited. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:10 am

  • Keim: 'Hard to imagine' Redskins keeping Reed
    ESPN's John Keim said it's "hard to imagine" the Redskins retaining Jordan Reed.

    Advice: The Redskins have begun cleaning house, releasing Josh Norman and Paul Richardson just in the last few hours. If Washington's roster purge continues under new coach Ron Rivera, the injury-prone Reed could be next up on the chopping block. The 29-year-old Florida alum never saw the field in 2019 while feeling the effects of his seventh reported concussion. Adding veteran Greg Olsen, who the Redskins hosted for a free-agent visit earlier this week, would make Reed expendable. Even if Olsen lands elsewhere—the Bills and Seahawks are also said to be pursuing him—cutting Reed would still make plenty of sense as his release would free up $8.5 million in cap space.

  • Signs are 'good' right now for Big Ben (arm)
    When asked about Ben Roethlisberger's (elbow) recovery, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said, "All signs are good at this point."

    Advice: Big Ben's recovery appears to be on track, but the team will have a much clearer idea of his health after his "significant" checkup on February 21. The medical staff should know how realistic a full recovery is and when it's realistic to have their franchise QB back on the field. Pittsburgh wants to run it back with Big Ben as the starter for at least one more year, but they remain a candidate to take a Day 2 quarterback in April's draft as long as Big Ben's health is up in the air. Roethlisberger will be entering his age-38 season this September. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:46 am

  • Jameis undergoes LASIK to repair vision
    Jameis Winston underwent LASIK surgery to repair his vision.

    Advice: It's not a game-changer, but it is notable with Winston eyeing (no pun intended) a new contract. The 26-year-old has infamously squinted as a result of being nearsighted throughout his career, leading coach Bruce Arians to state he "can’t read the scoreboard but he can see the guys in front of him" in his final press conference. Winston led the NFL with 5,109 passing yards and 33 touchdowns last year but is obviously having his decision-making questioned for the 30 picks that went with those marks. It's unknown if anyone associated with the team requested Winston have the surgery. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:52 pm

  • Re-signing Brady before March 18 helps Pats
    The Patriots would avoid a $13.5 million cap hit if they can extend impending free agent Tom Brady to a contract extension by March 18.

    Advice: March 18 is the first date to be aware of because that's when changes happen to the Patriots' 2020 salary cap. If Brady re-signs with New England by that date -- owner Robert Kraft wants that to happen -- then the team would be able to spread the dead money around across multiple seasons. ESPN's Mike Reiss expects the two parties to enter contract negotiations well before then. Brady, however, won't be able to formally meet with outside teams by that date, so if he wants to see what the Raiders, Chargers, Colts, or another team has to offer in person, then he'll be hurting New England's salary cap even if he re-signed at a later date.

  • Tepper: Cam's future comes down to health
    Speaking Tuesday, Panthers owner David Tepper said Cam Newton's future with the team will depend on his health.

    Advice: "There’s a lot of different things that can happen, but first is, is he healthy?," Tepper said. "Tell me that and then we can talk." It's a cop-out answer, as the Panthers aren't going to have a definitive answer by the time free agency starts. The Panthers' dissembling since Newton's Super Bowl week assertion that he would be back seems to suggest a team that is ready to move on, but the truth remains elusive.
