  • Report: DAL to part ways with Jason Witten?
    Dallas News' Calvin Watkins reports there isn't an expectation that TE Jason Witten will return to the Cowboys in 2020.

    Advice: Witten will turn 38 in May. The future HOF TE averaged a career-low 8.4 yards per reception and scored just four touchdowns in 2019. There still might be a role for Witten as a part-time red zone option, but his current near every-down role is far from ideal considering the lack of speed it puts on the field. Dak Prescott has been much more efficient targeting Blake Jarwin throughout his career. Perhaps Witten will look to continue his football career elsewhere, or maybe he'll *throws up in mouth* rejoin Booger and company in the Monday Night Football booth. Today, 7:07 am

  • Browns likely to exercise Njoku's team option
    Browns GM Andrew Berry hinted Tuesday that the team will exercise David Njoku's fifth-year team option for 2021.

    Advice: "I wouldn’t disclose any of those kind of business decisions in this setting," Berry said. "But it’s safe to say we view both those guys as very, very talented members of our roster and we look forward to seeing what they’re going to do over the next few years." The "other guy" is Myles Garrett. Something of a perennial tease through the first three years of his career, Njoku did not get along with since-fired coach Freddie Kitchens. ESPN has posited Njoku as a trade candidate, but Berry's words strongly suggest he will be staying. Yesterday, 2:52 pm

  • Pete Carroll 'heaps praise' on TE Hollister
    The Seattle Times reports Seahawks coach Pete Carroll "heaped heavy praise" on restricted free agent Jacob Hollister in Tuesday's media session.

    Advice: Beat writer Bob Condoota believes it's "obvious" the Seahawks want Hollister back. That's despite the fact they just gave Greg Olsen $5.5 million guaranteed and still have Will Dissly under contract. Something is going to have to give. The "low" RFA tender would cost $2.144 million. Since Hollister was undrafted, the Seahawks would not be entitled to compensation were they to decline to match an offer sheet. Yesterday, 1:30 pm

  • Bolts confirm Hunter Henry could be tagged
    Speaking Tuesday, Chargers GM Tom Telesco confirmed that impending free agent Hunter Henry is a candidate for the franchise tag.

    Advice: Telesco added that the team would prefer a long-term contract, and that talks are ongoing. Henry would be due roughly $11 million under the tag. Despite his injury issues and an up and down 2019, Hunter would be an extremely hot commodity on the open market. The tag is a distinct possibility. Yesterday, 10:13 am

  • Bucs coaches still 'very high' on O.J. Howard
    Buccaneers GM Jason Licht said the team is "more than excited" about what O.J. Howard can do in his second year in Bruce Arians’ offense.

    Advice: For what it's worth, Licht added that the team "always listens to offers" but is planning to have Howard in their offense at this time. A top-five option at his position in most circles heading into his first year under the tutelage of Arians' high-flying O, Howard fell flat for 34/459/1 receiving in 14 underwhelming appearances last season. Given Licht's comments, the 25-year-old specimen will likely return as nothing more than a bet-on-talent flier for 2020 fantasy drafts. Yesterday, 9:14 am

  • Falcons will let Austin Hooper 'hit market'
    Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said the team will let impending free agent Austin Hooper "hit the market" to see where his value is.

    Advice: While Dimitroff admitted that both De'Vondre Campbell and Hooper would test free agency, Atlanta's GM confirmed it "does not necessarily close the door on their time with the Falcons" and the team "fully intends on negotiating with them in the free agency period." 26 in November, Hooper is fully expected to reset the market at his position following career-highs in catches (75), receiving yards (787), and touchdowns (6) in '19. Barring a slew of surprising transactions, Atlanta's current cap situation will likely leave them on the outs of Hooper's contract negotiations. Yesterday, 8:06 am

  • Report: 'Real chance' Ravens trade TE Hurst
    The Athletic's Jeff Howe reports there's a "real chance" the Ravens "move" third-year TE Hayden Hurst this offseason.

    Advice: Hurst was the No. 25 overall pick in the 2018 draft but is already going to turn 27 this year. Mark Andrews, drafted in the third round that same year, has breezed past Hurst on the depth chart, as Hurst has just a combined 43-512-3 receiving line across 28 career games. Hurst should have a market, but the Ravens can't expect more than a Day 3 pick. Andrews and Nick Boyle are Baltimore's top two tight ends. Monday, 4:35 pm

  • Giants release TE Scott Simonson
    Giants released TE Scott Simonson.

    Advice: Simonson played 21 games with the Giants from 2018-2019, generally being utilized in a block-heavy role. Overall, the veteran TE has caught just 12 passes for 107 yards and one touchdown since entering the league in 2014. Monday, 1:40 pm

  • Noah Fant working on route running
    ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports Noah Fant is working to improve his short-to-intermediate routes.

    Advice: The Broncos want Fant to add "diversity to his route tree." Fant flashed big-play potential as a rookie, but half his yards came in two games, and he failed to clear five targets over the final six weeks. With not much behind Courtland Sutton, Fant's target share is a lock to go up in Year 2. Fant's ceiling with Drew Lock in a Pat Shurmur offense is his biggest concern. Monday, 6:40 am

  • Mike Gesicki expected to play 'big slot' role
    ESPN's Cameron Wolfe expects Mike Gesicki to be used in the slot in three-wide sets.

    Advice: Gesicki played some big slot for Miami last year that should continue under OC Chan Gailey, who runs shotgun-heavy gamescripts. With Preston Williams and DeVante Parker locked in on the outside, Gesicki looks to have the target edge over Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns. Gesicki came on late in 2019 — scoring touchdowns in four of the last six weeks. The makings are there for a third-year leap. Monday, 6:21 am

  • Austin Hooper likely to command $11M annually
    Salary-cap analyst Joel Corry predicts free agent TE Austin Hooper will command at least a four-year, $44 million contract.

    Advice: Hooper could also land fully guaranteed salaries over the first two years. With Hunter Henry potentially getting franchised, Hooper is going to reset the tight end market this offseason, whether it's with Atlanta or another team. Talks between the Falcons and Hooper should heat up at next week's Combine. Friday, 2:59 pm

  • Packers GM: TE Sternberger can be a mismatch
    Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said TE Jace Sternberger "can be a mismatch for us."

    Advice: Gutekunst also said Sternberger "has some dynamic ability." That ability wasn't showcased in his rookie season thanks to injuries and Jimmy Graham's presence, but it's possible that both of those aren't deterrents in 2020. Graham is likely a cap casualty, which would vault Sternberger into the starting mix as a receiving threat. Sternberger is a potential deep sleeper for fantasy drafts. Friday, 1:03 pm

  • Report: Jordan Reed plans to continue career
    ESPN's John Keim confirms free agent TE Jordan Reed is expected to continue playing career following his release from the Redskins.

    Advice: Keim's report is via a "source close to Reed." Reed will be returning from his seventh documented concussion as a pro. He has appeared in just 65-of-112 possible career games, good for 58 percent. He turns 30 on July 3. The easy take from afar is that Reed should hang 'em up, but he knows his body better than anyone else. Teams will surely be willing to bet on his talent. Thursday, 2:52 pm

  • Redskins release Jordan Reed after 7 seasons
    Redskins released TE Jordan Reed.

    Advice: The move comes after seven seasons, and sadly Reed's seventh documented concussion as a pro. This one cost him all of 2019. He cleared the protocol just this week. The move clears $8.5 million in cap space while leaving behind only $1.8 million in dead money. Still five months shy of his 30th birthday, Reed was on an early-career trajectory to be one of the best tight ends of the decade, but even beyond the head issues, injuries have absolutely wrecked his career. He has never appeared in more than 14 games, and has cleared 12 just twice in seven years. Reed seems committed to continuing his career, but he figures to give retirement consideration. It is an absolute shame for a player whose talent was never in question. Thursday, 1:36 pm

  • Bears sign Demetrius Harris to one-year deal
    Bears signed TE Demetrius Harris to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Harris lands on his feet only 48 hours after Cleveland announced his release. Previously inked to a two-year deal by former Browns GM John Dorsey, Harris totaled 15/149/3 receiving in his lone season with the team's old regime. 29 in July, Harris is more than familiar with coach Matt Nagy's scheme stemming from their time together in Kansas City. Chicago's tight ends room remains a looming question mark with Trey Burton (fresh off hip surgery) and Adam Shaheen sitting out 15 games due to injuries last year. Wednesday, 2:10 pm

  • Jordan Reed cleared from concussion protocol
    The Athletic's Ben Standig reports Jordan Reed has been cleared from the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: Reed's latest concussion — his seventh in as many seasons in the league — sidelined him for the entirety of the 2019 season after he took a nasty hit from Falcons safety Keanu Neal in an exhibition contest. Standig adds that while Reed himself fully expects to be released by Washington in the coming days, he's told those close to him that he intends on continuing his career and playing elsewhere next season. 30 in July, Reed's inevitable release will free up $8.5 million in cap space. The Bills are an intriguing landing spot after recently bringing in Greg Olsen, who has since put pen to paper with Seattle, for a visit. Wednesday, 11:36 am

  • Dolphins sign former Lions TE Michael Roberts
    Dolphins signed TE Michael Roberts.

    Advice: Initially headed to the Patriots in June for a Day 3 pick, Roberts surprisingly failed his physical with the team, forcing Detroit to release him the ensuing afternoon. He landed with the Packers a few days later but failed to make their final 53-man roster. Only one season removed from hauling in 9/100/3 as a burly (6'4/270) goal-line read, the Dolphins simply have their fingers crossed Roberts' practice habits finally catch up to his enticing athleticism.

  • Seahawks expect Dissly to be ready for Week 1
    The Seahawks expect Will Dissly (Achilles) to be ready for Week 1.

    Advice: Dissly tore his Achilles in November of 2019 and immediately had surgery. The Seahawks are expecting him to join the newly signed Greg Olsen in two-TE sets next September as Seattle continues to try to win with size and power. Dissly was pumping out low-end TE1 numbers prior to his injury but should be left off fantasy draft boards now that Olsen is in town. It's worth noting that Dissly also had a torn patellar tendon in 2018, so it's certainly possible that his athleticism has been sapped. Wednesday, 10:48 am

  • Witten wants to stay in Dallas but 'may' go
    Free agent Jason Witten said he wants to "be with the Dallas Cowboys" but also understands he "may have to go somewhere else."

    Advice: This has always been implied. Witten did also say he has met with new head coach Mike McCarthy and has remained in communication with the Jones family in Dallas, but things have gone stagnant with the Combine and other contracts coming up. The veteran will have some opportunities outside of Dallas if it gets that far, particularly with the Giants and OC Jason Garrett. Witten will likely be a complementary player who serves as a clubhouse leader. Tuesday, 5:55 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. Feb 17, 9:25 am

  • 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. Feb 17, 8:07 am
