• Texans inform LB Brian Cushing of his release
    Texans informed ILB Brian Cushing of his release.

    Advice: Cushing became an afterthought in Houston due to a PED suspension and the improved play of second-year linebackers Zach Cunningham and Dylan Cole. By releasing Cushing, the Texans will save $7.64 million. Cushing isn't nearly the same player he was once following multiple PED bans, but he is likely to resurface. New Titans coach Mike Vrabel coached Cushing in Houston, and Tennessee may lose ILB Avery Williamson in free agency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:33 pm

  • Jets view Powell as a 'complementary back'
    ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets view Bilal Powell as a "complementary back."

    Advice: Cimini went on to say he believes that Powell will continue to share the workload with either Elijah McGuire or someone else they bring in. Despite Matt Forte likely to be cut, it doesn't look like Powell's workload will increase much if at all. His receiving upside leaves him in play as a late pick in 2018 fantasy drafts.

  • ASJ turns down Jets' 2-year, $8 million offer
    According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, free agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins recently turned down a two-year, $8 million offer from the Jets.

    Advice: Per Vacchiano, the offer was "short on guarantees." Despite this, Vacchiano expects the two sides to eventually "talk again and work something out." Seferian-Jenkins set career-highs in catches (50) and receiving yards (357) this past season and is still just 25. A reunion makes sense for both sides. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:43 am

  • McCarron in line for Glennon-type deal?
    ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects free agent A.J. McCarron to command "at least as much" as Mike Glennon on the open market.

    Advice: Glennon signed for three years and $45 million with $18.5 million guaranteed last offseason and there's a good chance McCarron will surpass those figures in 2018. While McCarron will undoubtedly be on the Jets' radar—they nearly traded for him last offseason—Cimini believes bringing back a known commodity in Josh McCown would be a better use of the team's funds. It shouldn't take more than $12 million to re-sign McCown for 2018. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:02 am

  • Vikings still the 'favorite' for Case Keenum?
    According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, free agent Case Keenum "still seems to be the favorite" to return as the Vikings' starting quarterback in 2018.

    Advice: Based on his comments, OC John DeFilippo seems to prefer an "athletic quarterback with ability to extend plays." Keenum and Kirk Cousins both fit that profile, though Keenum would obviously come at a much cheaper cost. Walters feels it would be "out of character" for the Vikings to get into a bidding war and expects Cousins to sign wherever he can get the most money. Minnesota blocked QBs coach Kevin Stefanski from joining Pat Shurmur in New York, which could be a sign the Vikings would like to keep the status quo by retaining Keenum.

  • Report: Vikings to 'consider' A.J McCarron
    According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings are expected to "consider" A.J. McCarron in free agency.

    Advice: McCarron was granted free agency last week after winning his grievance against the Bengals. He'd likely be a fallback for the Vikings, who are also pursuing Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum. McCarron, who is expected to command up to $10 million annually, is also drawing interest from the Broncos, Browns, Cardinals and Jets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:48 am

  • Browns expected to pursue Terrelle Pryor
    Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms free agent Terrelle Pryor will be "on the Browns' radar" this offseason.

    Advice: Pryor had his best season with Cleveland in 2016, leading the Browns in both catches (77) and receiving yards (1,007). He didn't fare as well in Washington but was obviously hampered by injuries including an ankle issue that eventually required surgery. Pryor would add to a Cleveland receiving corps already featuring Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:30 am

  • Seattle not expected to re-sign Eddie Lacy
    The Seahawks don’t plan to re-sign free agent Eddie Lacy.

    Advice: This is expected after Lacy finished the final weeks of 2017 as a healthy scratch. Coming off a down year with a history of conditioning issues, Lacy is going to struggle for guaranteed money this offseason. The Seahawks have a healthy Chris Carson returning and look likely to add a running back in the draft. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:15 pm

  • Cousins can prevent Redskins from tagging him
    The MMQB's Albert Breer reports Kirk Cousins can file a grievance to block the Redskins from franchising him.

    Advice: The Redskins want to tag-and-trade Cousins, but the CBA prevents them from tagging him without any plans to sign him. Washington would also need to commit at least $28.7 million in cap space to keep Cousins from free agency, putting them in a bad leverage spot. Cousins remains likely to hit the open market this offseason, where he'll become one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league. The Jets, Vikings, and Broncos are the top suitors for Cousins.

    ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports Rob Gronkowski has been thinking about retirement for "quite some time."

    Advice: Darlington went on to say it isn't just a reaction to the Super Bowl loss or Gronk's recent concussion and that he's been considering it "long before both instances." It still seems likely that Gronk will return for the 2018 season, but as more reports continue to emerge, it wouldn't be surprising to see him retire. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:21 am

  • Packers looking to extend Rodgers after draft
    The Green Bay Press-Gazette expects the Packers to extend Aaron Rodgers after the draft.

    Advice: The Packers have Rodgers signed through 2019 but want to extend him this offseason. Rodgers will likely wait to see what Kirk Cousins gets in free agency before signing, so it may be closer to training camp until anything gets done. Rodgers' next deal will make him the highest paid player in the league with an annual salary in the range of $30 million. There have been rumblings Green Bay could give Rodgers a fully guaranteed short-term extension. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:15 pm

  • McCarron the top FA QB option for the Browns?
    ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes A.J. McCarron "shoots to the top of he Browns' options" among free-agent quarterbacks.

    Advice: The Browns will surely try to throw their hat into the ring for Kirk Cousins, but it seems highly doubtful Cousins will want to play there. McCarron obviously has a history with coach Hue Jackson after Jackson was his OC in Cincinnati and then foolishly tried to trade second- and third-round picks for McCarron at the trade deadline last year only to be saved by Sashi Brown. New GM John Dorsey may have more of a say in things, and it's unclear how he feels about McCarron. The Browns need to aim a lot higher, but McCarron could be an okay 2018 temporary stop-gap to allow a rookie to sit and learn the NFL ropes for a little bit. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:05 am

  • McCarron wins grievance, awarded free agency
    A.J. McCarron has won his grievance against the Bengals and been awarded unrestricted free agency.

    Advice: The grievance dated back to McCarron's rookie season in 2014, where the Bengals kept him on the non-football injury list for all but two games, saying he suffered a shoulder injury away from the team. That prevented his contract from tolling, and meant he was headed for restricted, instead of unrestricted, free agency this offseason. McCarron contended his injury was wrongly listed as non-football, and an independent arbitrator agreed. Going on 28, McCarron will now be one of the "stars" of a slightly-deeper-than-usual free agent quarterback class. The No. 164 overall pick of the 2014 draft, McCarron has attempted just 133 career passes. He could be a Brock Osweiler or Mike Glennon waiting to happen. McCarron has a noted admirer in ex-Bengals OC/current Browns coach Hue Jackson, who nearly pulled off a deadline deal for his ex-pupil. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:01 pm

    Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Bills on Thursday.

    Advice: It's Davis' first visit since he was released by the Colts in early November. The nine-year veteran announced last week that he had been medically cleared after undergoing core muscle surgery. Three months shy of his 30th birthday, Davis might still have some good snaps to offer but has become increasingly-bitten by the injury bug. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:58 pm
