  • Update: Cowboys reportedly don't want David Njoku
    Sports Illustrated's Mike Fisher reports the Cowboys do not want to trade for Browns TE David Njoku.

    Advice: This conflicts with Cleveland.com's report that Dallas "might have some interest" in Njoku, who asked for a trade on Friday. The Cowboys simply have too many weapons on offense and too many cap-related questions to try and work a trade for a tight end who eventually will need a new contract. The Browns have a spot in their starting lineup for Njoku, but he likely wants a chance to reach 60+ targets. That won't happen in Cleveland with Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Austin Hooper, Nick Chubb, and Kareem Hunt demanding most looks. Njoku likely wouldn't fetch anything more than a Day 3 pick if a deal went down. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:03 pm

  • George Kittle to end up at $13 million per season?
    The Athletic's Matt Barrows reports George Kittle's extension could end up in the range of $13 million per season. 

    Advice: Barrows' report is via "someone in the know." That would make Kittle the highest-paid tight end by a comfortable margin — amongst players on multi-year deals, Austin Hooper is the current leader at $10.5 million per season — but perhaps isn't the bank-breaking number some might expect. Kittle's extension has arrived at an awkward time, as the league is staring at potential revenue shortfalls in a fanless season. That would lower the 2021 salary cap. NFL Network's Mike Silver reported in May the sides were "far apart." Kittle's agent has talked up his ability as a blocker and leader in addition to pass catching. It's safe to say Kittle isn't in the market for a hometown discount.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:29 pm

  • Engram (Lisfranc) shown running on Instagram video
    Evan Engram (Lisfranc surgery) was shown running in a video shared on Instagram.

    Advice: The full video can be viewed in the link below. It's the first time we've seen Engram participate in any activity since initially going under the knife in December. It's a positive sign for his outlook as the 25-year-old's participation in training camp remains up in the air. Engram is fittingly being drafted as the TE6 in Best-Ball leagues behind Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Mark Andrews, Zach Ertz, and Darren Waller. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:55 am
