Player Notes

  • Marshawn Lynch retiring after 12 years in NFL
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Marshawn Lynch is retiring from the NFL after 12 seasons.

    Advice: Drafted by the Bills with the 12th overall pick in the 2007 draft out of California, Lynch spent three-plus seasons in Buffalo before being dealt to Seattle for a pair of mid-round picks. With the Seahawks is where Lynch made his mark and became "Beast Mode." His thunderous 67-yard touchdown run against the Saints in a playoff upset win in 2010 is one of the most iconic plays of this century. Lynch finishes his career with 10,379 rushing yards and 84 scores on the ground. He was a shell of himself the final two years of his career for his hometown Raiders and missed 10-of-16 games last season. Lynch made five Pro Bowls and was named first-team All-Pro once. He should land in Seattle's Ring of Honor. The NFL lost a lot of personality today. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:25 am

  • Le'Veon Bell skipping Jets voluntary workouts
    Le'Veon Bell did not report for Jets voluntary workouts on Tuesday.

    Advice: Voluntary workouts are, of course, voluntary, but it is an interesting way for Bell to reacquaint himself with NFL life after sitting out the entire 2018 season. New coach Adam Gase is no doubt thrilled. Bell does have a long history of playing well after long layoffs, but 2019 will be a horse of a different color for the 27-year-old back.

  • Pace: No pressing need to draft running back
    Speaking Tuesday, Bears GM Ryan Pace said he did not feel a "pressing need" to draft a running back.

    Advice: "There’s no pressing, huge need," Pace said. "We can honestly pick the best player available." Pace said he was addressing the "narrative" that the Bears must select a runner after trading Jordan Howard. He talked up his backfield, including Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson. It is probably just GMspeak, but Pace could have easily given a more vague answer. If the Bears do come out of draft weekend without a new back, Davis would be in the RB2/3 mix. The Bears have only five selections, two of which are seventh-rounders. Their first pick is No. 87. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:18 am

  • Jonathan Stewart retires after 11 seasons
    Jonathan Stewart retired after 11 seasons in the NFL.

    Advice: Stewart signed a one-day contract to retire with the Panthers, the team which made him the 13th overall pick back in 2008 and was his home for 10 of 11 seasons. Early in his career, Stewart formed a dynamic partnership with DeAngelo Williams, and the pair helped carry the team to a 12-4 record in 2008. Stewart struggled with injuries throughout most of his career, but he was able to appear in at least 13 games each of his final four seasons in Carolina, averaging almost 925 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns over that span. Stewart finishes his career with the most rushing yards in Panthers history. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:46 am

  • T.J. Yeldon joins crowded Bills backfield
    Bills signed RB T.J. Yeldon to a two-year contract.

    Advice: Yeldon joins a backfield which already features LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and a quarterback who rushed for 79 yards per game over his final six outings last season. On paper, then, it is tough to see more than a handful of touches per game for the former Jaguar. That said, Gore is the oldest running back in the league, McCoy is also near the top of that list and could always be traded and the Bills want to be one of the most run-heavy teams in the league. It would not be a shock if Yeldon falls into a decent role at some point this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:38 am
