Player Notes

  • Jaron Brown not expected back in Seattle
    Free agent Jaron Brown isn't expected to re-sign with the Seahawks.

    Advice: Brown opened last year as the No. 3 receiver behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but he faded in the second half, finishing with 28 targets. The Seahawks should upgrade on Brown through the draft or free agency. Seattle also likes Malik Turner as a potential in-house fallback for Brown. Today, 8:02 am

  • Danny Amendola re-signs on one-year deal
    Lions re-signed WR Danny Amendola to a one-year contract.

    Advice: The was expected after a rebound year that saw Amendola finish just short of career highs. Amendola is locked in the slot behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, but his targets are going to take a hit with a healthy T.J. Hockenson returning. With Amendola signed, Detroit can turn its attention to extending Golladay. Yesterday, 10:54 am

  • Jets take flyer on WR Josh Doctson
    Jets signed WR Josh Doctson.

    Advice: Doctson was cut by the Redskins last August and spent part of 2019 on the Vikings' practice squad. He's a low-risk flyer for the Jets, who aren't expected to re-sign Robby Anderson and could move on from Quincy Enunwa. Doctson should stick around for the offseason but he's a long shot to make it past final cuts. Yesterday, 9:34 am

  • Kendrick Bourne could get second-round tender
    NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco suggests the 49ers may use a second-round tender on restricted free agent Kendrick Bourne.

    Advice: The undrafted Bourne wouldn't get the 49ers any compensation on an original round tender. He would make $3.3 million at the second-round level. It would be more cost-effective for the 49ers to sign Bourne to a multi-year deal that lowers his cap hit. Yesterday, 8:25 am

  • Odell Beckham (core) on track for OTAs
    Odell Beckham (core surgery) expects to be ready for OTAs.

    Advice: Beckham was cleared to run on a treadmill this week. It's obviously a good sign he's already doing light workouts this early in his rehab. Beckham should be recovered by mid-March, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Browns move him slowly. Friday, 3:12 pm

  • A.J. Green wants out of Cincinnati?
    An NFC executive told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler he thinks free agent A.J. Green "wants out of Cincinnati."

    Advice: This wouldn't come as a surprise given how things have played out to this point. Green doesn't want to be franchised and there hasn't been much progress on a new deal. After giving Tyler Boyd a $43 million extension in July, it's not a lock the Bengals bring Green back. Despite missing all 16 games coming off an injury-shortened 2018, re-signing Green will likely take at least the $16 million annually Adam Thielen got from the Vikings last offseason. Friday, 2:25 pm

  • Bears release Taylor Gabriel, CB Amukamara
    Bears released Taylor Gabriel.

    Advice: The Bears were facing this decision: keep Gabriel on his two-year, $14 million contract or release him with $2 million in dead cap. With Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller already on the roster, and with a loaded 2020 draft class to find Gabriel's replacement, it was an easy decision. Gabriel will slide in the low-level starter tier in free agent ranks. As a 28-year-old last season, Gabriel averaged 39.2 yards across nine games. Friday, 12:30 pm

  • Jaguars opt to bring back WR Chris Conley
    The Jaguars exercised Chris Conley's team option.

    Advice: Conley will return to Jacksonville in 2020 after showing promise as a No. 3 receiver last season. He set new career-highs in catches (47) and yards (775) after being brought in as an unrestricted free agent from Kansas City. Conley offers big-play potential and will be a double-digit round flier in fantasy drafts after the offseason. Conley is now entering his prime as a 27-year-old. The Jaguars also picked up S Jarrod Wilson's option for the 2020 season. Friday, 12:20 pm
    Week 17 Projected Rank
  • Tyrell Williams making progress with his feet
    Tyrell Williams is "making good progress" with his plantar fasciitis problems.

    Advice: Williams was slowed down by his feet last season in Oakland, but he and the team are attacking those issues early in the offseason. Coach Jon Gruden said he had a long talk with Williams right after the season was over to express confidence in his abilities. Williams averaged 10.2 yards per target last season but only caught 42 passes. He is probably best suited for a No. 2 role on an NFL offense but may have to operate as the alpha receiver if the Raiders don't upgrade their receiving room this offseason. Williams should be on the flex radar in fantasy drafts. Friday, 12:02 pm

  • Report: Alshon is open to a change of scenery
    The Athletic's Connor Hughes reports Alshon Jeffery "would welcome the change of scenery" that would come with a potential trade.

    Advice: Jeffery and the Eagles don't appear to be on the best terms right now, although his agent denied the report. The receiver will be heading into his age-30 season coming off an ominous Lisfranc foot surgery, and he has a $15.7 million cap hit this season followed by another $18.5 million in 2021. It's hard to trust Jeffery moving forward given his injury history, and it will be hard to trade Jeffery given his contract. The Eagles are likely to add some youth to their receiver room in the draft if they aren't happy with the free agent market. Luckily for Philly, this draft class is expected to be strong. Friday, 11:39 am

  • Nelson Agholor being linked to Indianapolis
    The Athletic's Stephen Holder reports impending free agent WR Nelson Agholor has been linked to the Colts this offseason.

    Advice: It makes sense. Philadelphia isn't expected to retain Agholor and jumping over to the Colts would reunite the 26-year-old free-agent-to-be with Frank Reich and recently hired receivers coach Mike Groh, both who coached Agholor during the Eagles' 2017 Super Bowl run. He underwhelmed with three-year lows in catches (39) and receiving yards (363) over 11 games in 2019 but did previously flourish for career-bests as the team's primary slot wideout under Reich and Groh. The Colts likely view him as a reclamation project capable of pairing from the middle of the field with sophomore Parris Campbell. Friday, 9:29 am

  • TEN unlikely to exercise Corey Davis' option?
    The Athletic's John Glennon does not expect the Titans to exercise Corey Davis' fifth-year team option for 2021.

    Advice: Although it is guaranteed for injury only, Davis would be due roughly $15.8 million under the option, a sum his play has not come close to reflecting. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2017 draft was easily passed on the depth chart by second-round rookie A.J. Brown in 2019. It's hard to label Davis an outright bust — he posted 891 yards in 2018 — but he has not had the looks of a future No. 1 wideout. Davis does have youth on his side, having turned 25 just last month. Thursday, 5:13 pm

  • Jarvis Landry expects to miss 6-8 months
    Jarvis Landry (hip surgery) is expected to be sidelined 6-8 months from his Feb. 4 operation date.

    Advice: In other words, he's questionable not just for training camp, but Week 1. In a statement announcing Landry's operation, the team did imply it expected him to ready for the opener. Landry has always been a warrior when it comes to injuries, but there is only so much you can do when returning from major surgery. Landry's operation "shaved down some cartilage and removed two pieces of bone embedded in the labrum of his left hip." His Week 1 status cannot be taken for granted. Thursday, 2:17 pm

  • Brown's Raiders grievance gets timeframe
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports a hearing has been scheduled for May in Antonio Brown's grievance against the Raiders

    Advice: Brown is trying to recoup lost wages following his release. He had been due $30 million in guarantees. Brown has also filed a grievance against the Patriots that has yet to be given a date. Brown's NFL future will now take place in hearings, not the football field. Thursday, 1:08 pm
    Week 17 Projected Rank
  • Titans ink WR Batson to a one-year extension
    Titans re-signed WR Cameron Batson to a one-year, $585,000 contract.

    Advice: Batson missed all of 2019 after coming down hard on his shoulder during training camp. He made 11 appearances for the Titans the year prior, finishing with 8/82 receiving over 178 offensive snaps. He'll compete for a final spot on the team's depth chart behind teammates Kalif Raymond, Cody Hollister, and Rashard Davis. Wednesday, 1:06 pm

  • Vikings are unlikely to part ways with Diggs
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said it is currently a long shot for the Vikings to part ways with Stefon Diggs.

    Advice: Diggs has expressed frustration with the team, particularly with Kirk Cousins, but that doesn't mean the Vikings are done with him. Minnesota feels that they're close to a title, so trading their stud receiver away would essentially close out their championship window. Pelissero still expects teams to call the Vikings about a trade but notes things are unlikely to go anywhere at the moment. Things could change, especially if Diggs continues to drum up attention off the field in the next couple of months, but for now, Diggs is likely back in Minnesota as a WR2 in fantasy.

  • 'Seems highly unlikely' Jets re-sign Anderson
    The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "seems highly unlikely" the Jets re-sign impending free agent Robby Anderson.

    Advice: League sources tell Hughes that Anderson is expected to receive $13-15 million per year on a multi-year pact, while the Jets would prefer to sign him for closer to $10 million annually. Anderson has already said he won't be giving the Jets a "hometown" discount. The soon-to-be 27-year-old (in May) is a top-three free-agent wideout, along with Amari Cooper and A.J. Green. Saturday, 8:32 am

  • Marqise Lee candidate for offseason release's John Oehser believes Marqise Lee is a candidate for offseason release.

    Advice: Lee lasted just three games before going on IR in another injury-marred year. He's been a massive bust since signing a four-year, $38 million deal in 2018. Moving on from Lee this offseason should be an easy decision. Jacksonville can save $5.25 million in cap space from Lee's release. Friday, 2:14 pm

  • Redskins continue purge by cutting Richardson
    Redskins released WR Paul Richardson.

    Advice: This comes mere hours after the Redskins cut the cord on perennial underachiever Josh Norman. Pink-slipping Richardson was an easy call, costing Washington just $2 million against the cap. Had the Redskins kept him, P-Rich would have been due a $6.5 million salary in 2020. Richardson had a tough go of it in Washington, compiling a lackluster 48-507-4 receiving line over 17 appearances after joining the team on a five-year contract in 2018. Injuries and erratic quarterback play were at least partially to blame for the 27-year-old's ineffectiveness and Richardson should benefit from a change of scenery. Perhaps he'd be a possibility for Seattle, where P-Rich spent his first four seasons before defecting to Washington in free agency. Friday, 9:09 am

  • Report: Diontae Johnson had hernia operation
    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports Diontae Johnson is recovering from a sports-hernia operation.

    Advice: Johnson posted a picture of himself in the hospital a week ago. It was apparently for this fairly routine operation. It typically comes with a 4-6 week recovery timeline, but the Steelers won't push it during the offseason. Johnson could be limited in OTAs. With JuJu Smith-Schuster banged up, rookie Johnson finished second on the Steelers in yardage in 2019, catching at least four passes each of the final four games of the season. There's a real chance Johnson opens 2020 as the No. 2 receiver ahead of James Washington. Thursday, 3:10 pm
