  • Cowboys finally reach back out to Dak's agent
    ESPN's Todd Archer reports the Cowboys and Dak Prescott's agent, Todd France, had conversations regarding the quarterback's contract on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first time the two sides have communicated since September. With the new collective bargaining agreement all but guaranteed to force Dallas to slap Prescott with the franchise tag (potentially losing Amari Cooper in the process), hurrying a long-term agreement has suddenly become of interest to the franchise that once thought they held all the cards. Assuming the front office can negotiate a lucrative extension with the 26-year-old before the tag window closes, the team's sights would obviously then pivot to keeping Cooper under the franchise or transition tag. Impending free agent CB Byron Jones, just 28 in September, is inching closer to becoming the odd man out during this process. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:27 pm

  • Report: Case Keenum 'on radar' for Browns
    Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports impending free agent QB Case Keenum is "on the radar" for Cleveland.

    Advice: The Browns are clearly in the market for a viable veteran backup as CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora additionally reported the team's pursuit of 33-year-old Chase Daniel. This also means Cleveland is moving on from free-agent-to-be Drew Stanton, who's played behind Baker Mayfield the past two seasons. Keenum's an obvious connection to new coach Kevin Stefanski as the former's lone season in Minnesota resulted in a career-high 22 touchdowns and 11-3 record before signing on with Denver the following year.

  • Report: Browns will pursue Chase Daniel
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns are expected to pursue impending free agent QB Chase Daniel.

    Advice: Daniel has earned at least $10 million from three different teams since 2013. He has seven career passing touchdowns in five career starts. Legend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 am

  • McCarthy says Dak 'definitely' franchise QB
    Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott is "definitely" the team's franchise QB.

    Advice: McCarthy added that the contract status is a "business matter." The Cowboys have been consistent at all levels through the organization with confirming Prescott is the team's QB of the future, but the clock is ticking to sign him to a long-term deal. The franchise tag window closes on March 10. Complicating matters is that reports indicate ongoing CBA discussions could take more than a week to clear up, and the Cowboys have said they don't plan on re-signing either Prescott or Amari Cooper until those matters are done.

  • Report: Colts expected to land Philip Rivers?
    ProFootballNetwork.com's Tony Pauline reports people at the NFL combine have indicated that Philip Rivers will sign with the Colts.

    Advice: The sources reportedly point to the fact that Rivers has a "great relationship with head coach Frank Reich," and, "It should also be an easy signing as the Colts are projected to have a lot of room under the cap." Obviously the Colts didn't quite see the whole Andrew Luck retirement coming. Still, devoting an early round pick to the position regardless of whether or not they ultimately land Rivers is probably a good idea. The good news is they possess the type of dominant offensive line that could theoretically keep Rivers upright in 2020. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:22 am

  • Mayfield wants to be 'slimmer and faster'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Browns QB Baker Mayfield plans to be slimmer and faster in 2020.

    Advice: Rapoport added that Mayfield, "Put on some weight last year to bulk up and lost some quickness." The former No. 1 overall pick weighed in at the 2018 combine at 215 pounds. Mayfield did struggle to make his way out of the pocket in 2019, limiting some of his lethal improvisational play. Still, this is the type of news that is common in the offseason. Mayfield will ultimately need to show major signs of improvement on the football field in 2020 in order to get his career back on track. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:15 am

  • Lynch: Garoppolo is 'our guy moving forward'
    Speaking Tuesday, 49ers GM John Lynch said the team is "committed to Jimmy [Garoppolo] moving forward."

    Advice: "He's our guy," Lynch continued. "The room for growth has not come close to hitting the ceiling." Garoppolo was hidden throughout much of the 49ers' playoff run, as the offense leaned heavily on their excellent running game, and Garoppolo was unable to make the throws to sink the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. He's unlikely to ever be an upper-echelon NFL starter, but Garoppolo is good enough to win with in this league if everything else around him hits on all cylinders. He can even win games with his arm against lower-level competition. Garoppolo's contract is easy to get out of now with no more guaranteed money. Cutting him would clear $22.4 million in cap space. That's not going to happen. But coach Kyle Shanahan has long been enamored with Kirk Cousins, while hometown boy Tom Brady is currently set to be a free agent. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:11 pm

  • Jags have no timeline on 2020 QB decision
    Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has no timeline for deciding his 2020 starting quarterback.

    Advice: "It’s not really going to happen until we start playing, in the preseason, because for me, at that position, one of the things that’s important is that the players can see who the best player is," Marrone said. "You have an obligation to everyone in that locker room that you’re putting the best player out there." When Nick Foles wasn't injured last season, he was bad. Sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew displayed only flashes. It's not a great situation, one that has the Jags in "when you have two quarterbacks you really have zero" territory.

  • Rhule 'unbelievably excited' to work with Cam
    Speaking Tuesday, new Panthers coach Matt Rhule said he was "unbelievably excited" to work with Cam Newton.

    Advice: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier Tuesday that the Panthers had decided to move forward with Newton as their starter, and Rhule's comments echoed that. "I really want him on the team," Rhule said, before adding the caveat, "when Cam’s healthy, he’s one of the best of the best." Rhule also added, "I don't really care if he’s full speed until September." Rhule did decline to name Newton his certain starter if healthy, but it had all the hallmarks of coachspeak. Newton is expected to ramp up football activities in March. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:09 am

  • Vic doesn't mention Flacco as backup option
    Broncos coach Vic Fangio didn't mention Joe Flacco (neck) when discussing in-house backup options.

    Advice: "We just want to make sure we have a capable backup behind [Drew Lock]," Fangio responded when asked whether the team's backup needs to be a veteran. "[Brandon] Allen may be that guy, [Brett Rypien] may be that guy, and we'll look and see what else is out there." Flacco has yet to be medically cleared from his career-threatening neck injury, but it sounds as if Denver has already made up their minds on freeing the $10.05 million in cap space that comes along with slashing his $23.65 million number off their books. The 35-year-old will have to settle for being someone's backup if he continues his career in 2020. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:31 am

  • Mahomes expected to avoid surgery on kneecap
    Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects Patrick Mahomes to avoid surgery on his kneecap.

    Advice: "Right now he looks good," Reid said. Even with the understanding that he would play through the injury, post-season surgery was always considered a possibility after Mahomes went down in Week 8. It's still possible the Chiefs decide between now and camp that it is in Mahomes' best long-term interest to go under the knife. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:18 am

  • Elway again confirms Lock will be starting QB
    Speaking Tuesday, Broncos GM John Elway reiterated that Drew Lock will be the team's starting quarterback in 2020.

    Advice: Elway made similar comments following Week 17. It's been reported that the Broncos expect Joe Flacco (neck) to be healthy for 2020, but they have made it clear he will not be a starting option. Flacco, who famously said he had no interest in mentoring Lock, will almost certainly be released or traded. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:47 am

  • Stafford expected to be 'full-go' for OTAs
    Lions GM Bob Quinn said he anticipates Matthew Stafford (back) will be "full-go" for the team's offseason workouts.

    Advice: Quinn also said he'd like to add a third exclamation point to his recent statement that the trade rumors surrounding Stafford are "100% false!!". The 32-year-old cornerstone thrived in his first year under OC Darrell Bevell, pacing for eight-year highs in passing yards (4,998) and touchdowns (38) before breaking his back. Stafford is expected to begin Week 1 of the 2020 season with a clean bill of health. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:40 am

  • Mayock: If we can upgrade at QB, we will
    Speaking Tuesday, Raiders GM Mike Mayock admitted the team is open to replacing Derek Carr.

    Advice: "Derek Carr played at a high level," Mayock began. "I was very happy with Derek Carr." He then cut to the chase. "Every position gets evaluated every year, and if we can upgrade it, we will." It's innocuous enough, but teams that aren't considering changing quarterbacks say so. This does not mean the Raiders are for sure moving on, but they are certainly remaining flexible as the onset of an unusually deep quarterback market approaches. Moving on from Carr would not be cap prohibitive, instead creating $13.6 million in space. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:33 am

  • Bucs still on the fence about tagging Winston
    When asked if the organization would tag free agent QB Jameis Winston, coach Bruce Arians responded he'll know when "I know who else is available."

    Advice: Arians eluded that teams really don't know who's going to hit the market "until the tags come out," leaving 2-3 days to make any final decisions. He then added he'll know on Winston's situation when the organization knows "who else is available" next week. "Can we win with Jameis? Hell yeah," Arians said. "But you have to see if there is a better option." All signs point to Tampa Bay bringing back stud EDGE Shaquil Barrett in free agency, but Winston's suitor is still clearly up in the air. The 26-year-old returning on a short-term deal remains a likely outcome. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:28 am

  • Pace doubles down on Trubisky as 2020 starter
    Bears GM Ryan Pace reaffirmed Mitchell Trubisky will open as the team's starter in 2020.

    Advice: He made it clear the organization would still look at quarterbacks in both free agency and the draft to drive "competition." The front office is also expected to make a final decision on Trubisky's fifth-year option in May. The 25-year-old underwent shoulder surgery to his non-throwing arm in January but is expected to turn around and be cleared for the team's offseason program. With no other quarterbacks currently under contract, it's likely the Bears are playing the long game and eyeing a developmental piece that could potentially replace Trubisky both in-season and in the coming years if he stumbles out the gates.

  • Panthers moving forward with Cam as starter
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers are moving forward with Cam Newton as the team's starting quarterback.

    Advice: Coach Matt Rhule and his staff have reportedly been impressed how Newton has treated his rehab and his intent to return to top form. Expected to pass his physical and be cleared for football activities in the coming weeks, the organization's only other options were to outright release the 30-year-old (31 in May) and save an ensuing $19.1 million against the cap or try and trade him on the final year of his deal — the latter transaction being an improbable one since Newton's timeline complicates matters. The former MVP has missed a full 16 games due to an ailing shoulder and nagging foot problems over the past two seasons but remains one of the league's few field-flipping game changers when healthy. Carolina is still expected to land a viable backup as insurance in free agency. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:39 am

  • DAL hasn't met Dak's agent since September
    Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said the Cowboys haven't met or negotiated with Dak Prescott's agent Todd France since September.

    Advice: Jones added, "No contract with Prescott or Amari Cooper will be agreed upon until CBA rules for the 2020 league year are decided." Still, he reaffirmed the team's long-term commitment to Prescott by noting, "Dak’s our quarterback. He’s our quarterback for the future. We have nothing but the greatest respect for him ... There’s no thoughts like that." The good news is that the Cowboys met with Cooper and his agent Chafie Fields at the Pro Bowl in Orlando. Jones said the conversation was "very upbeat." Recent reports have been all over the place with Prescott, but most recently NFL Network's Ian Rapoport noted the Cowboys are attempting to get a long-term deal done prior to March 10. That is when the franchise tag window closes. Look for talks to heat up following the combine. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:30 pm

  • Bucs considering two-year deal for Winston
    ESPN's Jenna Laine reports the Bucs have considered a two-year extension for Jameis Winston.

    Advice: Winston would get a fully guaranteed $27 million salary this season — roughly the same the Bucs would pay him under the franchise tag — and a team option for 2021. It's not a player-friendly deal, but re-signing with the Bucs would allow Winston to rehab his value in a scheme that saw him throw for the eighth-most yards in NFL history last year. Winston may also be transition tagged, which would pay him $2.5 million less than being franchised. The Bucs have been linked to Philip Rivers and other free agent options, but Winston returning on a short-term deal has been gaining some traction. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:32 pm

  • Browns OC to alter Baker Mayfield's footwork
    Browns OC Alex Van Pelt said he will be changing Baker Mayfield's footwork this offseason.

    Advice: One specific change will be in his three-step drops in shotgun. Mayfield currently has his right foot in front, but the new offensive coordinator believes that made his footwork problematic while dropping back, which would then lead to some accuracy issues. There will be other changes to his game and the offense as a whole with the new coaching staff, and we're here for it all. Mayfield regressed in 2019 but has the potential to be a bounce back candidate with his talented supporting cast and new environment in 2020. Ultimately, his ability to react to pressure will determine how his next season goes. Mayfield is a QB2 in early fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:35 am

  • Rep: Flacco plans to play, won't risk health
    Speaking Tuesday, Joe Flacco's agent confirmed he plans to play in 2020 but not at the "risk of his long-term health."

    Advice: Flacco is awaiting a second opinion on his recent "encouraging" MRI. With 35-year-old Flacco's career in its death rattle, he has zero reason to risk his long-term health considering the money he's made, especially since he will have to settle for being someone's backup.

  • Joe Flacco expected to be healthy for 2020
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Broncos expect Joe Flacco (neck) to be healthy for the 2020 season.

    Advice: Fowler makes it clear that Flacco is not in the running to be the Broncos' 2020 starter, only that they believe he will be physically cleared. Per Fowler, Flacco got good news from a recent MRI. Probably out of chances as a starter, Flacco carries a prohibitive $23.65 million cap number. That would have to be slashed for Flacco to return as a backup in Denver. Flacco expressed zero interest in serving as Drew Lock's mentor last summer. He will likely be sent packing. His release would free up $10.05 million in cap space. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:53 am

  • 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.
