1.Dynasty | Derek Carr may be traded (Dynasty League Football) The Las Vegas Raiders may trade quarterback Derek Carr Analysis: Rumors continue to spread of the Raiders' willingness to offer Tom Brady $60M over two years which certainly means Carr would not be in their plans. It would be the first big domino to fall and Carr would immediately find multiple trade suitors, Chicago being one of them. Carr threw for 4,054 yards and 21 touchdowns to only eight interceptions in 2019, good but not great touchdown production. Blame shouldn't rest solely on Carr's shoulders alone as the team'...

2.Dynasty | Jacoby Brissett could be cut (Dynasty League Football) Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett could be a cut candidate Analysis: It would be a costly move for the Colts though they have plenty of cap space if desidred. While GM Chris Ballard said "the jury's still out" on Brissett as a starter, it's hard to imagine he won't be under center when the 2020 season kicks off. That said, some big names at quarterback will/could be on the market giving the Colts options. Brissett is a locker room player and well liked by the team and management so the article appears to be far more a... (More)4 minutes
3.Patriots | No movement between NE, Tom Brady (thehuddle) New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Tom Brady has not made any progress in contract talks with the Patriots at this point. Analysis: The two sides have about a month to negotiate until Brady becomes a free agent. Several of teams will pursue Brady if he hits the free-agent market, so the Patriots may need to sign Brady in the next few weeks. He likely will be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2020. 4 hours
4.Still no timetable for Shazier's return (Rotoworld) Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said there's still no timetable for Ryan Shazier's return. Analysis: "You're dealing with a young man who is trying to regain his career. We'll always support that," said Colbert. "There's no ceiling and there's no time frame on the possibility of his returning." Shazier hasn't seen the field for Pittsburgh since undergoing spinal surgery in 2017. Shazier's contract for 2018 tolled to the next season due to his injury and while owner Art Rooney hopes the two sides can work something out, it's unclear if the Steelers will continue to roster h...

5.Steelers | No timetable for Ryan Shazier (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier (spine) does not have a timetable for his return, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. He is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, but the two sides are expected to discuss his contract situation. 5 hours
6.Rudolph considering legal action vs. Gar... (Rotoworld) Mason Rudolph called Myles Garrett's assertion that he used a racial slur during an altercation last season a "bold-faced lie" and "1000% false." Analysis: "I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial-slur," tweeted Rudolph. "This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character." Garrett was suspended for the final six games of 2019 after bashing Rudolph over the head with his own helmet, a response he said was triggered by Rudolph's use of a racial epithet. Despite there being no audio to back up his claim, Garrett repeated... (More)5 hours
7.'No movement' in Patriots' talks with Br... (Rotoworld) ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss confirms the team has had "no movement" in contract talks with impending free agent Tom Brady. Analysis: The Patriots only have a month to hammer out a deal with Brady before the legal tampering period begins on March 16. The first-time free agent has already drawn interest from the Raiders, who are reportedly prepared to offer Brady a two-year, $60-million contract to be the team's headliner upon their move to Las Vegas. Reiss still puts the Patriots' odds of retaining Brady at 80 percent, though the next month of rumors and speculation promis... (More)6 hours
8.Antonio Brown plans to attend Combine (Rotoworld) Free agent Antonio Brown told TMZ he plans to attend the NFL Combine in Indianapolis later this month. Analysis: "I'm excited and looking forward to seeing them guys," said Brown, who added that he's "ready to get things back on the right page." AB has been apologetic of late, extending the olive branch to former quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, police in his hometown of Hollywood, Florida and the NFL as a whole. It may be too little too late for the seven-time Pro Bowler, who is facing felony battery and burglary charges stemming from an incident at his home last mont... (More)6 hours
9.Cardinals | David Johnson could be traded (thehuddle) The Arizona Cardinals could trade RB David Johnson during the offseason if they decide to give impending free-agent RB Kenyan Drake the franchise tag or sign him to a contract extension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Analysis: Johnson's current contract includes a substantial amount of guaranteed money, which would make it nearly impossible for the Cardinals to cut him, so they are likely to wind up eating a great deal of cash in any potential trade, even if a draft pick is included. Drake should be viewed as a high-end RB2 option in next season's fantasy drafts if he returns to Arizona, with Johnson likely falling into ... (More)8 hours
10.Chiefs | Bashaud Breeland open to remaining in KC (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent CB Bashaud Breeland said in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he is interested in returning to the team for the 2020 season.8 hours
11.Bills | Jordan Phillips could be tagged (thehuddle) The Buffalo Bills may consider using the franchise tag to keep impending free-agent DT Jordan Phillips for another season, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.8 hours
12.Dynasty | David Njoku could be traded (Dynasty League Football) Browns tight end David Njoku could be traded during the off-season Analysis: It should come as no surprise that Njoku may be on the trade block and while he's certain to have some value remaining, he hasn't come close to reaching expectation following his first round selection in 2017. Following his 2018 performance when he tallied a 56/639/4 line, Njoku struggled with injury in 2019 and managed only 41 yards and a single touchdown. There's arguably been no more frustrating and disappointing performer at the position given Njoku... (More)19 hours
13.Dynasty | Robby Anderson not expected to re-sign (Dynasty League Football) Robby Anderson is not expected to re-sign with the Jets and will find his way to a new team in free agency Analysis: No surprise here and it's long been expected that Anderson will be playing with a new team shortly after free agency opens. It's a tight free agency market at wide receiver, headlined by A.J. Green, and Anderson will be in demand. The soon-to-be 27 year old deep threat has struggled with poor quarterback play throughout his career though started to find a level of production with Sam Darnold late in 2019. The right s...

14.Dynasty | Leonard Fournette future undetermined (Dynasty League Football) Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette's long term future in Jacksonville is undetermined Analysis: As a first round selected player, the Jaguars have a fifth-year option for Fournette's 2021 season. All signs point to the Jags allowing 2020 to play out before determining his fifth-year status with the club. Fournette rebounded in a big way in 2019, at least from a yardage perspective, by posting a career best 1,152 yards but only managed three touchdowns. He also amassed 76 receptions for another 522 yards but failed to score as a... (More)19 hours
15.Jaguars | Leonard Fournette's option in doubt (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette may not have his fifth-year optioned exercised, according to John Reid of The Florida Times-Union. Analysis: Fournette is coming off a strong 2019 campaign, but while he stayed relatively healthy and made progress as receiver, injuries remain a concern. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Jacksonville wait and see how he holds next year up before picking up his option or talking an extension. In the meantime, Fournette should at least be a high-floor, volume-based RB2 in 2020.20 hours
16.Jets | Breshad Perriman an option for NYJ? (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Breshad Perriman could be a target for the New York Jets if WR Robby Anderson doesn't return in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.20 hours
17.Jets | Robby Anderson finished with Gang Green? (thehuddle) New York Jets WR Robby Anderson is 'highly unlikely' to return to the team in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. Analysis: Even if Anderson lands in a high-powered passing attack, he is unlikely to be more than a deep threat for the offense and a boom-or-bust flex option for fantasy owners.20 hours
18.Jags not a lock to pick up Fournette's o... (Rotoworld) The Florida Times-Union suggests the Jaguars aren't a lock to pick up Leonard Fournette's fifth-year option. Analysis: Fournette rebounded with the best season of his career after a down 2018 clouded his status in Jacksonville. It should be an easy decision to exercise his option, but Fournette carries a $10.1 million price tag as a former top-10 pick and comes with injury risks that could guarantee his salary. With limited cap space and Fournette's spotty conditioning, it's possible the Jaguars let him play out his rookie deal before addressing his contract next offseason.1 day
19.NFL | Antonio Brown meeting with teams at combine (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) said Saturday, Feb. 15, he's 'excited and looking forward to' meeting with NFL teams at the 2020 Scouting Combine. 'I'm (going to) be out there ready to get things back on the right page,' Brown told TMZ.com. Analysis: Brown remains a longshot to be on an NFL roster for Week 1 of the 2020 season. It's obviously a situation worth monitoring, but this information does little to resurrect his fantasy value.1 day
20.Bucs yet to make decision on Winston's f... (Rotoworld) Coach Bruce Arians said the Bucs have yet to make a decision on Jameis Winston's future with the team. Analysis: "Really nothing has changed," Arians said. "You get about three days to decide. The legal tampering period. Is somebody going to get let go? What's the trade values? It's really monotonous right now because you don't have any answers." The Bucs have "legitimate interest" in Philip Rivers, who moved to Florida this offseason. They've also been linked to Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater, and Ryan Tannehill, but whether they view Rivers or any of the ot... (More)1 day
21.Patrick Peterson: Extension in the future? (RotoWire) General manager Steve Keim confirmed Friday the team had discussed Peterson's contract with his representation, noting nothing has transpired yet, but that "we'd love to see him retire as a Cardinal," Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports. Analysis: Entering the final year of his five-year, $70.5 million extension, there was some chatter Peterson could ultimately be moved after an uneven campaign which saw the star cornerback suspended six games and also limited by a calf injury. There's reason to believe Peterson's less-than-stellar performance could simply be due to rust and poor circumstance, but the Cardinals aren't exactly in a positi... (More)1 day
22.Cardinals could pursue SS Tony Jefferson (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Greg Auman considers the Bucs a landing spot for free agent SS Tony Jefferson. Analysis: Jefferson's October ACL surgery limited him to five games last year. The Ravens released him as a cap casualty, but there should be interest in Jefferson if he can show he's healthy. Jefferson has ties to Bruce Arians, who he was drafted by and played under his first four seasons. The Bucs should be aggressive in upgrading a secondary that was one of the worst in the league in 2019.1 day
23.Buccaneers | Chris Godwin among 20 best players (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin came in 20th on Pro Football Focus' ranking of the top 101 players in the league. Analysis: Godwin had a breakout elite season in 2019, catching 86-of-121 targets for 1,333 yards and nine TDs to finish as fantasy's No. 2 wideout in total points -- and that's despite missing the final two games with a hamstring injury. Godwin very likely could land a contract extension this offseason, but a follow-up finish among fantasy's elite WRs could hinge in a large degree on what happens with the Bucs' QB situation this offseason.1 day
24.Texans may bring back Vernon Hargreaves (Rotoworld) The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans haven't ruled out the possibility of re-signing free agent Vernon Hargreaves. Analysis: Hargreaves was cut to avoid a $9.6 million fifth-year option Houston was never going to pick up. He could be brought back at a lower salary after posting 21 tackles and two PBUs in six games with the Texans last year. Wherever Hargreaves ends up, he'll be a post-hype flyer.1 day
25.'Seems highly unlikely' Jets re-sign And... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "seems highly unlikely" the Jets re-sign impending free agent Robby Anderson. Analysis: 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.1 day
26.John Jenkins hopes to re-sign with Dolph... (Rotoworld) Impending free agent DT John Jenkins hopes to re-sign with the Dolphins. Analysis: Jenkins made five starts and played 43 percent of snaps in a semi-regular role with Miami last year. Bringing him back would give the Dolphins some veteran leadership on their defensive line. 30-year-old Jenkins shouldn't cost much more than the veteran minimum.1 day
27.Report: Raiders to offer Brady 2 years, ... (Rotoworld) Sports reporter Larry Fitzgerald Sr. has been "told" the Raiders are prepared to offer impending free agent Tom Brady a two-year, $60 million contract. Analysis: Fitzgerald Sr. doesn't have an extensive track record of breaking news, but he's a longtime member in the sports media world, based out of Minnesota. He's not the type of person to just throw something against the wall. The Raiders have been linked to Brady multiple times since the end of the Patriots' season, with coach Jon Gruden and owner Mark Davis looking to make a splash as the team embarks on Las Vegas. Brady... (More)1 day
28.Titans | Ryan Tannehill switches agents (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill, a pending free agent, has has dropped agent Patrick Dye in favor of Brian Aryault and Todd France, according to sources. Analysis: Interesting move as Aryault and France work at CAA with Jimmy Sexton, who also represents Titans pending free agent Derrick Henry, and Aryault also is the agent of Titans general manager Jon Robinson. If all works out and Tannehill returns to the Titans, he'll be in the fantasy QB1 conversation.1 day
29.Rashaad Penny (knee) cleared for rehab w... (Rotoworld) Rashaad Penny (knee) has been cleared for rehab work. Analysis: Penny was able to use a stationary bike for the first time since undergoing knee surgery. It's a good first step, but he's still facing an uphill battle to be ready for Week 1. Penny may ultimately be a candidate for the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games.1 day
30.Ethan Westbrooks: Cut by Niners (RotoWire) The 49ers released Westbrooks on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Westbrooks was recently signed by the team Wednesday, but he was swiftly cut a few days after. Westbrooks failed to suit up in a 2019 regular-season game, while he's accumulated 79 tackles, nine sacks and a forced fumble across 67 games in his NFL career.1 day
31.Raiders | Tom Brady to receive $60M offer (thehuddle) New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, a pending free agent, will receive a two-year, $60 million offer from the Las Vegas Raiders, according to Larry Fitzgerald Sr., a long-time member of the Minnesota media. Analysis: It's definitely a different kind of offseason for the soon-to-be 43-year-old Brady, and it'll be more than intriguing to see if he lured by the big $$$ of a new team or decides to finish his career with the only franchise he's ever known. Even if he stays in New England, Brady is now a QB2 consideration for fantasy.1 day
32.Ty Johnson not guaranteed roster spot (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Chris Burke believes Ty Johnson "won't be guaranteed a roster spot" going into training camp. Analysis: Johnson never had more than a part-time role despite Kerryon Johnson missing half the season to a knee injury. He'll enter training camp behind Kerryon, Bo Scarbrough, and potentially Wes Hills. Even if Johnson keeps his spot, his handcuff value is limited.1 day
33.49ers | Kwon Alexander to make full recovery (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers LB Kwon Alexander (biceps) is expected to fully recover from surgery on his injured biceps for the 2020 season.1 day
34.Packers | Jimmy Graham hasn't produced (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham has averaged 33.8 receiving yards and caught five total touchdowns in 32 games with the team. Analysis: Graham's tenure with the Packers has to be considered a disappointment, and there is a good chance he will be cut this offseason. No matter where Graham ends up in 2020, he's unlikely to provide much help to fantasy owners. 1 day
35.Cowboys | Amari Cooper a key cog (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has averaged 8.2 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 102.3 with WR Amari Cooper on the field compared to averages of 7.0 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 89.5 with Cooper off the field. Analysis: The Cowboys still need to work out contracts with Prescott and Cooper, but both players are expected to be back, either on long-term deals or via the franchise and transition tags. Assuming the duo stays put, Prescott will enter 2020 as a midrange QB1 while Cooper will be a WR1 candidate.1 day
36.Buffalo possible landing spot for Josh N... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques suggests the Bills as a landing spot for free agent Josh Norman. Analysis: This is dot-connecting, as Norman played for Sean McDermott during their time in Carolina. The Bills are in the market for a No. 2 corner with Levi Wallace and Kevin Johnson both free agents, so Norman to Buffalo makes some sense. After a disastrous 2019, Norman should settle for a prove-it deal this offseason.1 day
37.Seahawks | Rashaad Penny making progress (thehuddle) Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was able to use a stationary bike Tuesday, Feb. 11, for the first time since undergoing knee surgery. Analysis: Penny is on track in his recovery, but it remains to be seen if he will be ready for Week 1. Even if he is healthy, he is slated to be the backup to Chris Carson. Penny could still be a fringe RB3 in Seattle's run-heavy offense, but at worst, he's a must-own handcuff. 1 day
38.Browns could shop David Njoku in offseas... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jake Trotter believes the Browns will consider trading David Njoku this offseason. Analysis: This isn't a surprise after Njoku said he wasn't sure if he'll be back with the Browns next season. Cleveland has since fired Freddie Kitchens and brought in a new front office, but it's possible they also move on from Njoku, who has never really clicked with Baker Mayfield. Coming off a lost 2019, Njoku likely wouldn't return more than a Day 3 pick.1 day
39.Cardinals likely to re-sign LT D.J. Hump... (Rotoworld) Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he's "very optimistic" about re-signing free agent LT D.J. Humphries. Analysis: Humphries had a rebound 2019, staying healthy for all 16 games and grading out positively at PFF. The Cardinals view him as a building block and don't want to let him walk as a 26-year-old free agent. Signing Humphries long term comes with risks given his extensive injury history. He's likely to command at least the $13.8 million AAV Donovan Smith got from the Bucs last offseason.1 day
40.Marqise Lee candidate for offseason rele... (Rotoworld) Jaguars.com's John Oehser believes Marqise Lee is a candidate for offseason release. Analysis: Lee lasted just three games before going on IR in another injury-marred year. He's been a massive bust since signing a four, $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.1 day
41.49ers release DL Westbrooks one day late... (Rotoworld) 49ers released DL Ethan Westbrooks. Analysis: Westbrooks signed a one-year contract literally yesterday. Cold world. The defensive linemen has accumulated 67 games over five years and figures to be a depth option for a team in 2020.1 day
42.Vernon Hargreaves: Cut loose by Houston (RotoWire) Hargreaves was released by the Texans on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Hargreaves entered the NFL in 2016 as a No. 11 overall pick with Tampa Bay. He was never consistent in coverage and also struggled with injuries, eventually getting waived this past November. The Texans put in a waiver claim and then gave Hargreaves regular run in their injury-riddled secondary, but he didn't show nearly enough to justify the $9.9 million price tag on his fifth-year contract option for 2020. Given that he's a first-round pick and still only 24 years old, Hargreaves should draw some interest on the open market, even if it's... (More)1 day
43.Texans cut CB Vernon Hargreaves months l... (Rotoworld) Texans released CB Vernon Hargreaves. Analysis: Hargreaves was claimed by Bill O'Brien last November after he was cut by the Bucs for not being on the same page with the Tampa Bay coaching staff. The 2016 11th overall pick is likely never going to pan out, but he will be a 25-year-old flier for a team desperate for cornerback help this offseason. Releasing Hargreaves saves Houston just under $10 million against the cap.1 day
44.Buccaneers | Tampa may consider Tony Jefferson (thehuddle) Free-agent FS Tony Jefferson (Ravens) could receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if the Buccaneers look to add a veteran safety this offseason, in the opinion of The Athletic's Greg Auman. 1 day
45.Kenyan Drake could be franchise tagged by Cardinals (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cardinals are interested in keeping Kenyan Drake. Analysis: Rapoport adds that the franchise tag is an option. Drake, who is a free agent, could also wind up signing a long-term deal with Arizona. Complicating the issue is David Johnson's massive contract, which makes him impossible to cut. Ultimately if Drake winds up with the backfield to himself then he will be a very exciting fantasy asset entering 2020. Stay tuned.1 day
46.Devonta Freeman could be released by Falcons? (FantasyPros) Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap isn't "unlimited". Analysis: The Falcons have some salary cap issues this off-season and releasing Freeman would certainly open up some financial flexibility. The 27-year-old played in 14 games last year, rushing for 656 yards and scoring six touchdowns. His status will be one to monitor this off-season.1 day
47.Kwon Alexander: Gets biceps surgery (RotoWire) Alexander had surgery Friday to repair a biceps injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $54 million contract last offseason, Alexander suffered a torn pectoral in late October but made it back on the field for the playoffs. He reportedly played through a biceps injury in the Super Bowl, finishing without a tackle despite playing 70 percent of defensive snaps. Alexander will turn 26 in August and should have time to get healthy before Week 1.1 day
48.Jaguars | Three LBs could be targets for Jaguars (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans impending free-agent LB Wesley Woodyard, Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent LB Cory Littleton and Cleveland Browns impending free-agent LB Joe Schobert may be targets for the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason if they decide to look for a new middle linebacker, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's John Reid. 1 day
49.Ty Johnson: No lock for 2020 roster (RotoWire) Johnson isn't guaranteed a roster spot in advance of the 2020 season, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports. Analysis: On the surface, Johnson's 4.3 yards per carry from 2019 seems respectable for a sixth-round rookie. Take out his 40-yard scamper from Week 17, though, and that number drops to 3.8, which seems much more representative of a player who seemingly struggled as a runner on a weekly basis. In fact, it's hard to say Johnson fared well as a receiving option either considering he averaged just 4.5 yards on his 24 receptions. Add it all up and Johnson may be dependent on an impressive showing in offseason workouts -- and Detroit... (More)1 day
50.Tony Jefferson: Cut by Ravens (RotoWire) The Ravens are releasing Jefferson, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Analysis: The writing was on the wall Monday when fellow Ravens safety Chuck Clark signed a three-year extension. It was Clark who joined the starting lineup after Jefferson suffered a torn ACL in October, stepping in alongside Earl Thomas at safety. The 28-year-old Jefferson is free to sign with a new team immediately, but he may have trouble generating interest this early in the ACL rehab process. He had five consecutive seasons with 74 or more tackles prior to 2019, earning a reputation as one of the better run-stopping safeties in the NFL. Jefferson also does a n... (More)1 day
51.Kwon Alexander has offseason biceps surg... (Rotoworld) 49ers LB Kwon Alexander underwent offseason biceps surgery. Analysis: Everyone knew Alexander was playing through a surgically repaired pec this season, but he also had an undisclosed biceps surgery. The linebacker is expected to be ready for the 2020 season as the Niners look to repeat their NFC Championship run. Alexander signed a four-year, $54 million contract last offseason, but San Francisco can get out of it with relative ease after this upcoming year if he can't stay healthy.2 days
52.Chris Odom: Cut by Washington (RotoWire) Odom was released by Washington on Friday, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports. Analysis: Odom had seven tackles and two sacks in four games with Washington last season, but it apparently wasn't enough for him to stick on the offseason roster. The 25-year-old UDFA will hope for another shot at a roster spot this spring/summer.2 days
53.Kenny Ladler: Cut loose (RotoWire) Ladler was released by Washington on Friday, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports. Analysis: Ladler went undrafted back in 2014 and has played in 11 NFL games for three different teams. He played 70 snaps on defense and 21 on special teams for Washington in 2019.2 days
54.Ravens cut S Tony Jefferson for cap savi... (Rotoworld) Ravens released SS Tony Jefferson. Analysis: Jefferson was due $11.6 million in 2020, but the Ravens will instead opt to swallow his $4.1 million in dead cap by releasing him to free agency in order to create some more cap space. Jefferson will need to prove to teams that he's healthy before signing a deal this offseason because he was placed on injured reserve in October of last season with ACL and other knee ligament damage. Jefferson will be entering his age-29 season.2 days
55.Ravens OL James Hurst gets 4-game suspen... (Rotoworld) The NFL suspended Ravens OL James Hurst for four games for violating the league's PED policies. Analysis: Hurst appeared in all 16 games last season but only started twice. He's a depth option for the run-first Ravens with experience at tackle and inside at guard. He'll be eligible to play in Week 5, assuming the Ravens don't have a bye early in the season.2 days
56.Cardinals could use a franchise tag on D... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals want to keep free agent Kenyan Drake and that the franchise tag is an option. Analysis: There are a lot of moving parts in the Cardinals backfield. First, there's David Johnson and his massive contract that essentially makes him impossible to cut. Rapoport notes Arizona could trade Johnson and one of their own draft picks to get DJ off their salary cap. That would make some sense, especially if a team like the Dolphins who have a ton of cap space is interested. As for Drake, it sounds like the Cardinals will do everything they can to keep... (More)2 days
57.Important NFL CBA meetings coming soon (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the CBA will likely be signed either before the free agency period or after the 2020 season. Analysis: There are important meetings over the next couple of weeks that will determine if a new CBA is agreed upon between the owners and the NFLPA. If these meetings go well, then we should have a new deal done within the next month or so. If not, then things could be pushed back months and months. With massive TV deals waiting to be signed, it's in the best interest of the league to figure things out sooner rather than later.2 days
58.49ers | Ethan Westbrooks let go (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers DE Ethan Westbrooks was released Friday, Feb. 14. 2 days
59.Bills | Josh Norman an option for Buffalo? (thehuddle) Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Redskins) could receive interest from the Buffalo Bills this season since he has played for head coach Sean McDermott in the past, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Marcel Louis-Jacques. 2 days
60.Ravens | Tony Jefferson officially released (thehuddle) Baltimore Ravens FS Tony Jefferson was officially released Friday, Feb. 14. 2 days
61.Keim: 'Hard to imagine' Redskins keeping... (Rotoworld) ESPN's John Keim said it's "hard to imagine" the Redskins retaining Jordan Reed.2 days
62.Cardinals | Kenyan Drake has talked deal with Cards (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB Kenyan Drake has had some contract talks with the Cardinals since the end of the season, and general manager Steve Keim said he has told Drake that the team wants him back. Analysis: Drake played very well after his trade to the Cardinals and rushed for 643 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games with Arizona. He probably would receive most of the touches at running back if he re-signs and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.2 days
63.Paul Richardson: Cut by Washington (RotoWire) Richardson is being released by Washington, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: It isn't clear if Richardson was approached about a pay cut before the final decision was made. Either way, he'll be free to immediately sign with a new team, after making it just two seasons deep on a five-year, $40 million contract. Richardson, who will turn 28 in April, missed the final five games of 2019 with a hamstring injury. A 44-703-6 receiving line for the 2017 Seahawks represents the only productive season on his NFL resume.2 days
64.49ers | Kwon Alexander undergoing surgery (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers LB Kwon Alexander (biceps) is scheduled to undergo surgery on his injured biceps Friday, Feb. 14, according to sources. 2 days
65.NFL | Greg Olsen still talking with three teams (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is having contract negotiations with the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Olsen met with all three teams over the last two weeks. Analysis: Olsen has not officially said if he will play in 2020, but it appears he likely will play at least one more season. He likely would be the starter for all three teams and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues. 2 days

68.Redskins continue purge by cutting Richa... (Rotoworld) Redskins released WR Paul Richardson. Analysis: 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 ineffect... (More)2 days
69.Kenyan Drake: Negotiating with Arizona (RotoWire) Drake and the Cardinals have engaged in contract talks, with GM Steve Keim saying he hopes to re-sign the running back, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Analysis: Keim also commented on David Johnson, whose $10.2 million base salary for 2020 is fully guaranteed. Specifically, Keim said Johnson won't be released this offseason, adding that the 28-year-old should still have a key role on offense even if he isn't the starter. There aren't many teams in the modern NFL giving large contracts to multiple running backs, but the Cardinals arguably could make it work while they have QB Kyler Murray on a rookie deal. Drake...

71.Duce Staley looking to leave Philly? (Rotoworld) According to Josh Kendall of The Athletic, Eagles RBs coach Duce Staley "inquired" about the same position on South Carolina's staff. Analysis: Staley was reportedly "rebuffed" after reaching out to coach Will Muschamp in hopes of returning to his alma mater. The 44-year-old has understandably grown impatient with the Eagles, who chose not to promote Staley or even interview him for the team's vacant offensive coordinator position this offseason. Seeing no future in Philadelphia, the former running back would likely jump at the opportunity to coach elsewhere.2 days
72.NFL | Dez Bryant's sights on NFL only (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Dez Bryant continues to lobby for a reunion with the Dallas Cowboys and isn't considering a prove-it trial in the XFL. 'Nah, not at all,' Bryant said recently. 'I know I can still play. That's not an issue for me. I have high confidence in myself. No disrespect to the XFL, I just know I can play in (the NFL), that's not a question.'2 days
73.David Johnson won't be cut by Cardinals (FantasyPros) Cardinals GM Steve Keim said Friday morning that cutting David Johnson "is not an option". Analysis: Keim added that in the backfield "you can't have just one back". Johnson performed considerably worse lat year than mid-season acquisition Kenyan Drake, which has led to questions about his place on the Arizona roster. Drake is currently a free agent, so perhaps the Cardinals will try to re-sign him and then trade DJ. Time will tell but there are obviously major fantasy implications here.2 days
74.David Johnson: Won't be cut (RotoWire) Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said Johnson won't be released this offseason, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. "Cutting him is not an option," Keim said. "You can't just have one back." Analysis: Keim merely states the obvious, considering Johnson's three-year, $39 million extension includes a fully guaranteed $10.2 million base salary for 2020, per overthecap.com. A trade isn't out of the question, but the Cardinals presumably would need to give up something else -- or renegotiate Johnson's contract to eat some of the salary -- to facilitate a trade for for a 28-year-old running back, who hasn't looked es...

77.Keim: Cutting David Johnson 'not an opti... (Rotoworld) Speaking Friday morning on 98.7 Arizona Sports, Cardinals GM Steve Keim said cutting David Johnson is "not an option." Analysis: Keim added that "you can't have just one back." The long-time Cardinals workhorse was essentially benched last season, fighting for scraps down the stretch behind trade acquisition Kenyan Drake. While Drake is headed for free agency, there appears to be mutual interest in a reunion. The reality is Johnson's exorbitant salary in 2020 makes him near impossible to release (it would leave behind a whopping $16.2 million in dead money) and simil... (More)2 days
78.Redskins cut WR Paul Richardson, CB Josh Norman (FFToday) Can confirm Paul Richardson is being released. This was not a surprise. Skins want to find a solid starting WR opposite Terry McLaurin. As of now, not a ton of options in FA. But did address this in a post last week. Believe @MikeGarafolo reported Richardson's release first. Analysis: New head coach Ron Rivera is cleaning house and allows the Redskins to save $12.5 million against the cap on Josh Norman's contract. The release of Richardson will cause a $6 million hit in dead cap space. Washington is in search of a wide receiver to start opposite More)2 days
79.Greg Olsen: Talking contract with three teams (RotoWire) Olsen is in contract negotiations with Buffalo, Washington and Seattle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: A previous report suggested Olsen could make his decision Friday, choosing between the three aforementioned teams or the start of a new career in broadcasting. The tight end was released by the Panthers at the beginning of February and will celebrate his 35th birthday March 11.2 days
80.Broncos | Theo Riddick leaning on resume (thehuddle) Denver Broncos RB Theo Riddick (shoulder), a pending free agent, will rely on his resume in free agency after failing to play a regular-season snap in 2019 due to a preseason shoulder injury. 'Hopefully my resume speaks for itself and we go from there,' Riddick said. 'I know I'll be somewhere. ... You have to be open to everything and what (stinks) the most is that I'm a committed person and I wanted to show Broncos fans what I had and what I could do for this team and unfortunately, it didn't work out. Hopefully, the coaches still think highly of me and give me another shot.' Analysis: Riddick will still be only 29 in May and had ... (More)2 days
81.Josh Norman: Released by Washington (RotoWire) Norman was released by Washington on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The move frees up $12.5 million in cap space while leaving a $3 million dead-money charge behind. There was some thought Norman could stay in Washington for a reunion with new head coach Ron Rivera, but the cornerback would've needed to accept a pay cut to have any shot at making it work. The 32-year-old now becomes an unrestricted free agent, and the fact he was released -- rather than having his contract expire -- means he doesn't need to wait until the start of the new league year to sign with a team. PFF graded Norman at No. 111 among 113... (More)2 days

83.Greg Olsen negotiating with BUF, WAS and... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Greg Olsen has completed his visits and has entered negotiations with the Bills, Redskins and Seahawks. Analysis: Olsen has wrapped up his free-agent visits and will soon decide on a new team. The 34-year-old (he'll turn 35 next month) will have a broadcast gig waiting for him when he decides to hang up his cleats, though the three-time Pro Bowler appears poised to play a 14th season. Olsen logged three consecutive 1,000-yard campaigns from 2014-16 but has struggled to stay on the field in recent years, appearing in just 30 of 48 possible games the... (More)2 days
84.Redskins | Paul Richardson to be waived (thehuddle) Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson will be waived, according to a source Friday, Feb. 14. The team will create $2.5 million in salary cap savings with $6 million in dead money by releasing Richardson. Analysis: Richardson struggled since coming over from Seattle, catching only 48 passes for 507 yards and four TDs combined in his two seasons in D.C. He'll join the free-agent wideout pool, and could have some bounce-back low-end WR fantasy appeal depending on where he winds up.2 days
85.Rashaad Penny: Making rehab prgoress (RotoWire) Penny (knee) used a stationary bike Tuesday, taking a step forward in his rehab from a torn ACL, NFL.com's Kevin Patra reports. Analysis: Penny tore up his knee Week 14 and had surgery later in December. Coach Pete Carroll said the injury involved damage beyond an ACL tear, but Carroll also mentioned in early January that the Seahawks were pleased with Penny's early progress. The 24-year-old faces a challenge to make it back on the field for the early part of the 2020 campaign, while backfield mate Chris Carson is expected to recover from a hip fracture without needing surgery, potentially returning to practice as soon as May or June...

86.Blank hints Falcons will move on from Fr... (Rotoworld) Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap is not "unlimited." Analysis: "This has nothing to do with love," said Blank. "It has to do with building a roster. The salary cap is not unlimited. It seems like it’s unlimited, but it’s not." Blank and the Falcons are taking a diplomatic approach to Freeman's likely release, attributing it to the team's valid salary cap concerns—only the Vikings, Jaguars and Steelers have less cap space than Atlanta. But this is much more than a cost-cutting meas... (More)2 days
87.Cardinals | Patrick Peterson contract talks ongoing (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson has had initial contract talks, according to general manager Steve Keim. Peterson is entering the final year of his contract. Analysis: Peterson was tested last year when he returned from suspension. He had 53 tackles in 10 games, and he had 54 in all of 2018. He has never been a dependable option in fantasy because teams feared throwing at him. That's no longer the case, and Peterson will quietly be an option in IDP leagues as a low-end DB1. 2 days
88.Cardinals | David Johnson won't be cut (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is not an option to be cut, according to general manager Steve Keim. 'You can't just have one back,' Keim said. Analysis: The team used Johnson like a run-of-the-mill backup and not like a player that was one of the top picks in fantasy two years ago. It's hard to see him returning, and it would behoove him to play elsewhere. If he lands elsewhere, he'll be a low-end RB2 option. 2 days
89.Redskins | Josh Norman released (thehuddle) Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman was released Friday, Feb. 14. The team will save $12.5 million on the salary cap, but he'll count as $3 million in dead money. 2 days
90.Garrett maintains Rudolph used racial sl... (Rotoworld) Speaking in an interview with ESPN's Mina Kimes, Myles Garrett stood by his allegation that Steelers QB Mason Rudolph called him a racial slur before last November's brawl. Analysis: "He called me the N-word," Garrett said. "He called me a 'stupid N-word.'" Garrett has never wavered from his explosive accusation, though he did say he never intended for it to become public. The NFL said it "found no such evidence" during Garrett's appeal of his indefinite suspension. Garrett was reinstated on Wednesday. Rudolph has strenuously denied the allegation.2 days
91.Colorado Buffaloes reach out to Eric Bie... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the University of Colorado has reached out to Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy about its head-coaching vacancy. Analysis: Ex-Buffs coach Mel Tucker just had a fly-by-night departure to Michigan State, leaving Colorado in a lurch. Per Schefter, Bieniemy is "doing his due diligence." A CU alum, Bieniemy has already had two coaching stints at his alma mater as an assistant. While it is undoubtedly an attractive offer, Bieniemy is on the doorstep of a head NFL gig. He figures to ultimately keep his eyes on that prize.2 days
92.49ers | Pressure on Dante Pettis? (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis needs to show a 'much greater sense of urgency' in 2020, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Analysis: After showing promise at the end of his rookie year, Pettis finished with just 11 catches in 2019, disappearing from the offense. Fantasy owners can leave him on the waiver wire to open the 2020 season.2 days
93.Jets keep Daniel Brown with one-year dea... (Rotoworld) Jets re-signed TE Daniel Brown to a one-year contract. Analysis: Going on 28, Brown has 42 career receptions, seven of which have come since 2017. He's primarily a special teamer.2 days

95.49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo conservative in 2019 (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's 31 pass attempts of 20 or more yards in 2019 were tied for 29th in the league and were the fewest among quarterbacks who started all 16 games. Analysis: Garoppolo had a handful of big performances last year, and 15 of his 27 touchdown passes came in four games. With the 49ers leaning heavily on the run, the big plays and big games are likely to remain sporadic for Garoppolo in 2020. Consider him a QB2.2 days
96.Spencer Ware: Looking for home in 2020 (RotoWire) Ware (shoulder) will head into the 2020 offseason set to become an unrestricted free agent. Analysis: Ware's knowledge of the offense paid off late in the season when the Chiefs were lacking depth at the position due to injury, resulting in Ware's addition to the roster. Unfortunately, his campaign ended just three weeks after it began due to a rotator cuff tear, landing him back in the free-agent market this offseason with an injury to boot. He'll likely have to prove to teams he's healthy ahead of 2020 before landing a gig.2 days
97.Report: Diontae Johnson had hernia opera... (Rotoworld) The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports Diontae Johnson is recovering from a sports-hernia operation. Analysis: 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 ... (More)2 days
98.Diontae Johnson: Undergoes sports hernia procedure (RotoWire) Johnson is recovering from sports hernia surgery, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Analysis: Johnson appears to have undergone the procedure to address an issue he played with during the 2019 regular season, though he wasn't forced to miss any time. A typical recovery for such injuries can take up to six weeks, which would put Johnson on track for training camp, though particularly severe instances can sometimes cause players to miss extended time. The Toledo product led Pittsburgh in catches (59) and receiving touchdowns (five) as a rookie, and he stands to benefit from more consisted play at the quarterback posit... (More)2 days
99.Jared Norris: Lands in Washington (RotoWire) Norris signed a contract with the Redskins on Thursday. Analysis: Norris didn't see any regular-season action during 2019 after being cut by the Panthers in August, but he'll now get a chance to compete in Washington. The 26-year-old could offer the Redskins some upside as a special-teams contributor.2 days
100.Greg Olsen: Could decide Friday (RotoWire) Olsen could make a decision Friday between continuing his NFL career or switching to broadcasting work, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Olsen recently visited Buffalo, Washington and Seattle, and he also has an open offer from at least one television network. The tight end, who will turn 35 in March, seemingly intends to sign a new contract before the start of the new league year if he does indeed continue his football career.2 days
