  • 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 Today, 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 Yesterday, 10:42 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.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:10 am

  • Browns could shop David Njoku in offseason
    ESPN's Jake Trotter believes the Browns will consider trading David Njoku this offseason.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise after Njoku said he wasn't sure if he'll be back with the Browns next season. Cleveland has since fired Freddie Kitchens and brought in a new front office, but it's possible they also move on from Njoku, who has never really clicked with Baker Mayfield. Coming off a lost 2019, Njoku likely wouldn't return more than a Day 3 pick. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:21 pm

  • Marqise Lee candidate for offseason release
    Jaguars.com's John Oehser believes Marqise Lee is a candidate for offseason release.

    Advice: Lee lasted just three games before going on IR in another injury-marred year. He's been a massive bust since signing a four-year, $38 million deal in 2018. Moving on from Lee this offseason should be an easy decision. Jacksonville can save $5.25 million in cap space from Lee's release. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:14 pm

  • 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: '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.

  • Redskins continue purge by cutting Richardson
    Redskins released WR Paul Richardson.

    Advice: This comes mere hours after the Redskins cut the cord on perennial underachiever Josh Norman. Pink-slipping Richardson was an easy call, costing Washington just $2 million against the cap. Had the Redskins kept him, P-Rich would have been due a $6.5 million salary in 2020. Richardson had a tough go of it in Washington, compiling a lackluster 48-507-4 receiving line over 17 appearances after joining the team on a five-year contract in 2018. Injuries and erratic quarterback play were at least partially to blame for the 27-year-old's ineffectiveness and Richardson should benefit from a change of scenery. Perhaps he'd be a possibility for Seattle, where P-Rich spent his first four seasons before defecting to Washington in free agency. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:09 am

  • Paul Richardson reportedly on chopping block
    Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer expects the Redskins to release Paul Richardson this offseason.

    Advice: The Redskins just saved over $12 million in cap space by releasing free-agent disappointment Josh Norman and can shed another $6 million by cutting the cord on Richardson, who is probably a goner unless he accepts a substantial pay cut. Injuries and poor quarterback play have limited Richardson's effectiveness since joining the Redskins on a five-year, free-agent contract in 2018. An intriguing, albeit undersized (6'0"/180) field-stretcher when healthy, the 27-year-old could be a nice addition for a team in need of a vertical threat. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:34 am

  • 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.

  • Greg Olsen negotiating with BUF, WAS and SEA
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Greg Olsen has completed his visits and has entered negotiations with the Bills, Redskins and Seahawks.

    Advice: Olsen has wrapped up his free-agent visits and will soon decide on a new team. The 34-year-old (he'll turn 35 next month) will have a broadcast gig waiting for him whenever he decides to hang up his cleats, though the three-time Pro Bowler appears poised to play a 14th NFL season. Olsen logged three consecutive 1,000-yard campaigns from 2014-16 but has struggled to stay on the field in recent years, appearing in just 30 of 48 possible games the past three seasons. Joining the Redskins would reunite Olsen with his former Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:28 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. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:46 am

  • Report: Diontae Johnson had hernia operation
    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports Diontae Johnson is recovering from a sports-hernia operation.

    Advice: Johnson posted a picture of himself in the hospital a week ago. It was apparently for this fairly routine operation. It typically comes with a 4-6 week recovery timeline, but the Steelers won't push it during the offseason. Johnson could be limited in OTAs. With JuJu Smith-Schuster banged up, rookie Johnson finished second on the Steelers in yardage in 2019, catching at least four passes each of the final four games of the season. There's a real chance Johnson opens 2020 as the No. 2 receiver ahead of James Washington. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:10 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. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:17 am

  • Greg Olsen to make FA choice by end of week
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Greg Olsen is expected to sign with a team by the end of the week.

    Advice: It's been a hectic few days for Olsen, who announced an XFL game for Fox on Sunday before traveling to D.C. for Monday's meeting with the Redskins. His free-agent tour will continue Wednesday when he visits the Seahawks. The former Panther also held a sit-down with the Bills last week. The veteran expects to make a decision on his next team by the end of the week. A 13-year vet with three 1,000-yard receiving seasons on his NFL resume, Olsen turns 35 next month.

  • Redskins looking to move on from Richardson?
    According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, Paul Richardson could be a candidate for release this offseason.

    Advice: Per Keim, $2 million of Richardson's $6 million salary will become guaranteed if he's still on the team after the fifth day of the new league year. According to a source "familiar" with the Redskins, new coach Ron Rivera plans to pursue a veteran to pair with Terry McLaurin this offseason, which would pave the way for Richardson's inevitable release. Richardson offers field-stretching ability when healthy, though that's been a rare occurrence for him in Washington as injuries have limited the 27-year-old to just 17 games the past two seasons.
