  • Dolphins, Jags finalizing Albert-Thomas swap
    Citing league sources, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the Dolphins are working to finalize a trade sending Branden Albert to the Jaguars in exchange for Julius Thomas.

    Advice: The Miami Herald reported this late in the week, but the Sun-Sentinel got credit for the story on multiple media outlets today. The Sun-Sentinel hasn't (accurately) broken an NFL story in years. Either way, it's clear the Albert-for-Thomas deal has legs and at this point seems inevitable. Officially, no deal can be consummated until the start of the new league year on March 9. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:49 pm

  • Many connections between Pace, Garoppolo
    Jimmy Garoppolo's agent, Donald Yee, represents Saints coach Sean Payton, with whom Bears GM Ryan Pace worked for ten years in New Orleans.

    Advice: There are all kinds of connections to be made like this around the NFL, but Pace's connections to Garoppolo especially stand out. Payton and Pace's Saints were rumored to be infatuated with Garoppolo in the 2014 draft and allegedly considered taking him toward the end of the first round. Payton, Pace, and Garoppolo are all alums of Eastern Illinois. Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "Yee knows well just how much Payton and Pace valued Garoppolo in the (2014) draft," and "putting a deal together between those two wouldn’t be difficult."

  • Report: Rams could target Cousins in 2018
    MMQB's Albert Breer believes the Rams could be a player for Kirk Cousins if things don't work out with Jared Goff in 2017.

    Advice: The Redskins were once content to let the market determine Cousins' value, but the landscape has changed now that Cousins supporters Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan landed head-coaching jobs. Shanahan is already gunning for Cousins to join him in San Francisco, while Los Angeles could be a possibility next year if Goff falls flat again in 2017. With Cousins attracting interest elsewhere, the Redskins would be wise to lock him into a long-term deal as soon as possible. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:32 am

  • 49ers a 'strong possibility' for Jacob Tamme
    According to ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure, the 49ers are a "strong possibility" to sign impending free agent Jacob Tamme.

    Advice: The 31-year-old said he loves being a Falcon but could opt to join his former OC Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. The 49ers just signed Vance McDonald to a five-year extension, though it wouldn't hurt to bring in a veteran to implement Shanahan's offense. Either way, Austin Hooper is slated for a bigger role.

  • Giovani Bernard expected to avoid PUP list
    Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com believes Giovani Bernard (ACL) will avoid the PUP list to start next season.

    Advice: Bernard tore his ACL last November and seems to be on schedule with his recovery. At worst, Hobson thinks Bernard could miss one or two games to start the season. The Bengals still have Jeremy Hill, but they'll need more depth with Bernard on the mend and backups Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman headed for free agency. Running back could be a position the Bengals address in the draft. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:19 am
