  • Clears concussion protocol
    Tagovailoa has cleared the NFL's concussion protocols, and the Dolphins are confident he'll be 100 percent for the 2023 campaign, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Advice: Tagovailoa was diagnosed with two concussions during the 2022 regular season, and the second one, which occurred against Green Bay on Christmas Day, ultimately sidelined him for the remainder of the campaign. In early January, Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said Miami had been told by doctors that Tagovailoa's recent head injuries won't leave him prone to more concussions in the future, so the team feels confident the Alabama product can still be a franchise quarterback moving forward.

  • Tom Brady retires from NFL, this time 'for good'
    Tom Brady retired from the NFL after 23 seasons. 

    Advice: Brady in a video statement acknowledged his 2022 agonizing back-and-forth on whether to leave the game and said there would be none of that this time around. Brady, 45, leaves the NFL as the greatest quarterback to ever play, with seven Super Bowls -- six with the Patriots and one with the Bucs. He leaves the league with a plethora of records, including passing touchdowns, passing yards, completions, division titles, wins, and quarterback starts. He is the only player in league history to beat all 32 teams, and owns nearly every postseason quarterback record. Brady ended his otherwise spectacular career with two disappointing seasons in Tampa; his final NFL game was a blowout loss to the Cowboys at home. Though he hasn't lost much as a passer, Brady's willingness to stand in and absorb a hit had completely vanished by his age-45 season, affecting how he operated in the pocket and delivered difficult throws. As fiery a competitor as there will ever be in any sport, Brady played long enough to become a living legend on the field -- an almost mythical presence for opponents who were not born when Brady took over the starting job in New England in 2000. Without Brady, the Bucs will likely shift into rebuild mode for the coming years, perhaps parting with some of their key players as the organization seeks draft capital.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:15 am

  • Trey Lance says he'll be 100 percent for OTAs
    Trey Lance (ankle) told reporters he was "3-4 weeks" from being cleared to practice and that he'll be "100 percent" for OTAs. 

    Advice: Lance missed all but two games last season with a fractured ankle, and he's now set up in a complicated quarterback situation with the 49ers. Brock Purdy reeled off a bunch of wins before tearing his UCL and it's also possible the team could pursue a veteran quarterback this offseason. Former 49ers FO member Ran Carthon is now Titans GM, while the Texans appear likely to hire 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans as head coach. There could be trade opportunities for Lance if the 49ers want to move in that direction.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:40 pm

  • Bengals ink Browning to reserve/future deal
    Bengals signed QB Jake Browning to a reserve/future contract.

    Advice: Browning is one of several Bengals practice-squadders getting signed up for the 2023 offseason. The former Washington quarterback was not active for a game in 2022, but completed 42-of-64 passes for 452 yards and a touchdown in the 2022 preseason for Cincinnati. Also signed up on a reserve/future deal for 2023 are: TE Nick Bowers, DE Owen Carney, OT Devin Cochran, S Yusuf Corker, DT Domenique Davis, G Nate Gilliam, TE Tanner Hudson, DE Raymond Johnson III, LB Keandre Jones, WR Kwamie Lassiter II, and CB Marvell Tell III.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:23 pm

  • Report: Purdy suffered complete tear of UCL
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Brock Purdy suffered a complete tear of his ulnar collateral ligament in the NFC Championship against the Eagles.

    Advice: Purdy will reportedly seek a second opinion on his injury, but Pelissero reports the hope is he will undergo a repair rather than a total reconstruction (Tommy John surgery). If doctors can repair Purdy's UCL, the hope is he would be ready for training camp. Purdy was forced back into Sunday's loss to the Eagles after Josh Johnson left with a concussion, but said after the game he wasn't able to throw much more than 5-10 yards downfield. We'll likely know more on Purdy's injury and his pending surgery in the coming days. NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 5:09 pm
