  • McDermott talks up ex-rugby player RB Wade
    Coach Sean McDermott said second-year RB Christian Wade "has been impressive" and the "sky's the limit" for him.

    Advice: It's obvious coachspeak from McDermott, but it's at least notable after Wade balled out last preseason with big plays as a first-year player following his transition from rugby over in the UK. Wade produced an 8-84-1 rushing line and 4-55 receiving line in limited exhibition work before spending the year on the practice squad. With Frank Gore a free agent, Wade could make a move on a 53-man roster spot in 2020. Yesterday, 6:17 pm

  • Redskins bring back Adrian Peterson for 2020
    Redskins exercised Adrian Peterson's 2020 option.

    Advice: Peterson will be back in Washington for his age-35 season. Coach Ron Rivera notes Peterson's leadership is vital to the organization as they look to change the culture with a new regime. Peterson led the team in rushing last season (898 yards and 5 touchdowns on 211 carries) but should take a back seat to Derrius Guice if the youngster can get healthy. Peterson will be a very forgettable handcuff entering 2020 fantasy drafts. Wednesday, 8:04 am

  • Report: Kareem Hunt expects to remain in CLE
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports restricted free agent Kareem Hunt expects to remain with the Browns.

    Advice: Per Fowler, Hunt is hoping for a first-round tender, which is expected to be worth roughly $4.66 million, or a long-term deal. Hunt apparently isn't worried about his recent admission that he would likely fail a drug test. With Nick Chubb established on early downs, $4.66 million would be on the steep side for a third-down back in Hunt, albeit one capable of playing all three downs. Hunt's best bet for maximum earnings is probably still the open market. Leaving Cleveland is without question in the best interest of his fantasy value. Tuesday, 12:09 pm

  • 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. Monday, 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. Monday, 7:05 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. Saturday, 10:42 am

  • Rashaad Penny (knee) cleared for rehab work
    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. Saturday, 7:44 am

  • Ty Johnson not guaranteed roster spot
    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. Saturday, 6:10 am

  • Cardinals could use a franchise tag on Drake
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals want to keep free agent Kenyan Drake and that the franchise tag is an option.

    Advice: There are a lot of moving parts in the Cardinals backfield. First, there's David Johnson and his massive contract that essentially makes him impossible to cut. Rapoport notes Arizona could trade Johnson and one of their own draft picks to get DJ off their salary cap. That would make some sense, especially if a team like the Dolphins who have a ton of cap space is interested. As for Drake, it sounds like the Cardinals will do everything they can to keep him. Re-signing him to a long-term deal seems most likely, but using a franchise tag on him is a possibility, too. If Drake has the backfield to himself, he'll flirt with RB1 numbers in 2020.

  • Keim: Cutting David Johnson 'not an option'
    Speaking Friday morning on 98.7 Arizona Sports, Cardinals GM Steve Keim said cutting David Johnson is "not an option."

    Advice: Keim added that "you can't have just one back." The long-time Cardinals workhorse was essentially benched last season, fighting for scraps down the stretch behind trade acquisition Kenyan Drake. While Drake is headed for free agency, there appears to be mutual interest in a reunion. The reality is Johnson's exorbitant salary in 2020 makes him near impossible to release (it would leave behind a whopping $16.2 million in dead money) and similarly difficult to trade. Slowed by injuries and ineffectiveness, the declining 28-year-old has slumped to a pedestrian 3.6 yards per carry since breaking out for a career-best 20 touchdowns in 2016. Friday, 7:30 am

  • Blank hints Falcons will move on from Freeman
    Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap is not "unlimited."

    Advice: "This has nothing to do with love," said Blank. "It has to do with building a roster. The salary cap is not unlimited. It seems like it’s unlimited, but it’s not." Blank and the Falcons are taking a diplomatic approach to Freeman's likely release, attributing it to the team's valid salary cap concerns—only the Vikings, Jaguars and Steelers have less cap space than Atlanta. But this is much more than a cost-cutting measure. A perennial Pro Bowler early in his career, Freeman has been a catastrophe in recent years, limping to an anemic 3.66 yards per carry while battling a plethora of injuries the past two seasons. Now a month shy of his 28th birthday, all signs point to Freeman playing elsewhere in 2020. Friday, 5:46 am

  • Steelers GM: Conner had a 'disappointing' '19
    Steelers GM James Colbert said James Conner had a "disappointing [2019] season."

    Advice: Colbert wasn't shy about his thoughts on Conner. "The year before that he was one of the best in the league... We know there’s talent there. We hope James can regain it. And, if he’s healthy, there’s no reason he shouldn’t." The general manager continued to call Conner a "starting running back" but consider the message sent. Conner averaged 4.0 yards per carry and only played in 10 games last season while being slowed down by leg injuries. Conner is a bounce back candidate if both he and Big Ben are healthy in 2020. He's a boom-or-bust RB2 in early fantasy drafts with things up in the air. Thursday, 12:45 pm

  • Falcons 'weighing' moving on from Freeman
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons are "weighing" moving on from Devonta Freeman.

    Advice: Rapoport adds that decision is currently "up in the air." The Falcons can save $3.5 million in cap space by simply releasing the soon-to-be 28-year-old and starting over with Ito Smith, Brian Hill (an exclusive rights free agent), and a fresh draft pick or free agent signing in the offseason. Pegged for a bounce-back campaign, Freeman clearly lacked juice (albeit behind poor blocking) in rushing for 184/656/2 and a career-low 3.57 YPC in '19, perhaps making this decision an easier one for the organization. His absence would vacate 51 percent of the team's carries from last season. Wednesday, 11:17 am
