Player Notes

  • Delanie Walker targeting return for OTAs
    Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) hopes to be cleared for offseason workouts.

    Advice: Walker confirmed his rehab is on schedule. He's targeting OTAs for his return, but the Titans may move him slowly. Entering his age-35 season and coming off a serious injury, Walker is hard to trust as a 2019 rebound. 45 minutes ago

  • Chiefs sign E.J. Manuel to futures deal
    Chiefs signed QB E.J. Manuel to a reserve/future contract.

    Advice: Manuel spent 2018 out of the league after getting cut from Oakland. He joins Chad Henne as a veteran backup behind Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs also signed WR Sammie Coates, WR Davon Grayson, and DB Dontae Johnson to reserve/future deals. Yesterday, 3:14 pm

  • Chicago pulls plug on Parkey after down year
    Bears released Cody Parkey.

    Advice: Parkey struggled with field goals all year, going just 26-of-34 and famously hitting four uprights in a game. He also missed a 43-yarder that knocked Chicago out of the Wild Card round. Signed to a four-year deal last March, releasing Parkey saves $1.1 million and leaves $5.2 million in dead money. Despite the down year, some team will be willing to give Parkey another look this offseason. Yesterday, 3:02 pm

  • Saints TE Josh Hill expected to start in 2019
    The New Orleans Times-Picayune expects Josh Hill to be the Saints' starting tight end this season.

    Advice: With Ben Watson retired, Hill is the next man up on the Saints' depth chart. Hill's pass-catching skills have been hyped in the past, but he's never been more than a rotational player. We wouldn't be surprised if Dan Arnold took on a larger role with Watson gone. New Orleans also figures to add a veteran to the mix this offseason. Yesterday, 2:20 pm

  • Eagles bring back Jake Elliott on 1-year pact
    Eagles re-signed K Jake Elliott to a one-year contract.

    Advice: LS Rick Lovato is also returning on a one-year deal. A fifth-round pick out of Memphis in 2017, Elliott was due to be a restricted free agent this offseason. The 24-year-old enjoyed another strong season in 2018, converting 26-of-31 field goal attempts (83.9 percent) with a long of 56 yards. Yesterday, 1:06 pm

  • Austin Davis added to Seahawks coaching staff
    Seahawks hired Austin Davis as an offensive assistant.

    Advice: The Seahawks also hired Brad Idzik as an assistant wide receivers coach while promoting offensive assistant Steve Shimko to assistant QBs coach. The former quarterback spent parts of two seasons with the Seahawks as a backup to Russell Wilson. Davis turns 30 in June. Yesterday, 1:03 pm

  • Steelers GM: Three teams have called on AB
    Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said three teams have already contacted him about Antonio Brown.

    Advice: Let the games begin. Brown has made clear that he wants out of Pittsburgh and after meeting with Steelers ownership earlier this week, it appears the team is finally ready to accommodate their disgruntled wideout. AB is sure to draw heavy trade interest, though Colbert has cautioned that, "If it doesn't benefit us, we won't do it." Colbert wouldn't reveal the teams interested, though Brown himself has mentioned San Francisco and Green Bay as potential landing spots. Yesterday, 10:36 am

  • Bell's trainer denies that Le'Veon was 260 lb
    Le'Veon Bell's trainer called reports that claimed Bell was 260 pounds "laughable."

    Advice: His trainer was adamant that Bell remains in elite shape and pointed to his freshness as a positive over other impending free agent running backs. While that's true, some teams will be skeptical about signing a player who sat out one of his prime years, especially since Bell had a weight issue going into the NFL. Likely close to his 225 playing weight, Bell is said to be eyeing $48 million over the first three years of his next contract. Thursday, 4:31 pm

  • ASJ had two hernia tears last training camp
    The Athletic's Daniel Popper reports that free agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins suffered two hernia tears during last training camp.

    Advice: Seferian-Jenkins opted to grind through the injuries early in the season, but he ultimately landed on injured reserve in Week 6 after only piling up 11 catches for 90 yards and one touchdown. Even with the injuries, Seferian-Jenkins is considered one of the better tight end options in free agency, but that's not saying much. Since 2017, he has averaged only 7.32 yards on his 61 receptions. Thursday, 3:59 pm

  • TE Eifert (ankle) seen moving well in drills
    Free agent TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) has resumed doing agility drills.

    Advice: Eifert posted a video showing himself doing ladder drills at a rehabilitation center, and he claims to be healthy now. After missing 52 games with various injuries over the past five seasons, Eifert, 29, will likely be receiving incentive laden contract offers in free agency, but Eifert is talented whenever his body cooperates.

  • Jaguars likely to release RB Carlos Hyde
    The Jaguars are expected to release Carlos Hyde this offseason.

    Advice: The Jaguars gave up a fifth-round pick for Hyde as Leonard Fournette insurance at the trade deadline. He failed to make an impact in eight games, averaging 3.26 YPC with no touchdowns. It should be an easy decision to move on from Hyde. Jacksonville can avoid guaranteeing Hyde's $2 million salary and a $1 million roster bonus if they release him before the third day of the new league year. Thursday, 7:19 am

  • Antonio Callaway has minor charge dropped
    Antonio Callaway had his minor marijuana charge dismissed.

    Advice: Callaway paid $911 in fines and received a year monitored probation for driving with a suspended license, but his minor misdemeanor possession charge was dropped. It's good news from a legal standpoint, though Callaway is in Stage One of the league's substance abuse program and could still face a suspension. The Browns believe Callaway's off-field issues are behind him. Callaway led Cleveland with five touchdowns as a rookie and has potential for a sophomore year leap. Thursday, 6:36 am

  • Lions don't plan to re-sign LeGarrette Blount
    The Lions aren't expected to re-sign free agent LeGarrette Blount.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise with Blount coming off a career low 2.7 YPC. Blount looked washed in 2018 and isn't needed behind Kerryon Johnson. He could be forced into retirement this offseason. Wednesday, 3:56 pm

  • Hayden Hurst says he's over foot injury
    Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot surgery) says he's fully healthy.

    Advice: Hurst had the screw removed from the foot he fractured in August. He never looked 100 percent in the 12 games he played as a rookie but will get in a full offseason. With Nick Boyle a free agent, Hurst and Mark Andrews are going to compete for the Ravens' top tight end spot. Wednesday, 2:02 pm

  • Bears release TE Dion Sims, save $6M vs. cap
    Bears released TE Dion Sims.

    Advice: The move saves the Bears $6 million against the salary cap. This was a no-brainer after Sims missed half of last season with injury issues and a concerning concussion history. Sims appeared in 22 games with the Bears the last two years, posting a 17-189-1 receiving line. He's merely a blocker at 28 years old. Wednesday, 11:46 am

  • Amendola considered 'iffy' to remain with MIA
    The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley considers Danny Amendola "iffy" to remain with the Dolphins.

    Advice: Amendola carries a $6 million cap hit for 2019, one that can be wiped entirely off the books with no dead money charge. The 33-year-old was okay in his first season with the Dolphins, leading the team in catches and receiving yards while playing with abysmal quarterbacks. But the numbers overall were nothing to get excited about. Amendola does have familiarity with the coaching staff after playing for new OC Chad O'Shea in New England when he was the Patriots' WRs coach. Wednesday, 8:26 am

  • Dolphins expected to dump WR DeVante Parker
    The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley considers DeVante Parker "all but gone" from the Dolphins.

    Advice: Parker carries a $9.387 million salary in the final year of his deal after the team previously picked up his fifth-year option. It's guaranteed for injury only, and by all accounts Parker is healthy, so the Dolphins can wipe their hands clean of him with no penalty. The former No. 14 overall pick, Parker has been a chronic underachiever in Miami. However, he just turned 26 last month and has mouthwatering size. Likely to enter one of the weakest free-agent classes at receiver in recent memory, Parker should have plenty of teams looking to give him another shot. Wednesday, 8:22 am

  • Vikings, Thielen working on new contract
    The Vikings are working on a new contract for WR Adam Thielen.

    Advice: Thielen is signed through 2020 but at below-market rates of $5.85 million and $5.35 million. Thielen's agent confirmed he and the Vikings are working on a new deal to compensate Thielen at the level he deserves. Averaging $4.81 million per year on his current deal, Thielen is making less than guys like Allen Hurns, Seth Roberts, and Torrey Smith. He would command north of $15 million per year on the open market as a 28-year-old who has gotten better every year. Wednesday, 7:11 am
    Week 17 Projected Rank
  • Chargers re-sign WR Artavis Scott
    Chargers re-signed WR Artavis Scott to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Scott, a second-year UDFA out of Clemson, injured his ankle last preseason and missed the entire year. If the Bolts let Tyrell Williams walk as a free agent, it could open up more snaps for others. Scott is more of a slot receiver. Wednesday, 7:05 am
    Week 17 Projected Rank
  • Emmanuel Sanders on restructure: No way
    Emmanuel Sanders posted on social media Tuesday that he would not agree to restructure his contract.

    Advice: Sanders is due $10.15 million after tearing his Achilles' tendon in December. The three-year extension he signed in September 2016 included $6.9 million guaranteed for injury. Perhaps a settlement is in order. Without that complicating factor, cutting Sanders would free up $10.25 million in space. Sanders turns 32 next month. Tuesday, 4:51 pm
