    Dolphins' Cameron Wake: Signs contract extension
    21h ago

    Cameron Wake signed a contract extension with the Miami Dolphins that will run through the 2018 season.

    The 35-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down, as he recorded 29 tackles to go along with 11.5 sacks through 16 games last season. He'll remain a staple of the Miami defense for at least the next two seasons.

    Redskins' Will Compton: Progressing well in recovery
    2d ago

    Will Compton (knee - PCL) is progressing well from the knee injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Eagles. "I feel good about where I'll be come April," he said.

    Compton missed just one game due to the sprained PCL and played through the injury in both of the Washington Redskins ' final two games. Offseason surgery wasn't necessary, however, so the Nebraska product has subscribed to a regimen of rest and rehab as a means for recovery. He has until mid-April to return to full strength.

    Dolphins' Jordan Cameron: Likely done in Miami

    The Miami Dolphins are moving on from Jordan Cameron (concussion) this offseason, the Miami Herald reports.

    Cameron, an unrestricted free agent, appeared in just three games this past season due to concussion issues and is known to be considering retirement. When healthy, he averaged just 23.5 receiving yards per game the last two years and found the end zone only four times across 19 appearances. With Dion Sims set to hit the open market as well, MarQueis Gray currently sits atop the Dolphins tight end depth chart.

    Jaguars' Julius Thomas: Remains in Jaguars' plans for 2017

    Julius Thomas (back) remains in the Jacksonville Jaguars ' plans for 2017, WJXT Jacksonville reports.

    Thomas was due $3 million if he was still on the roster at 4 PM ET, and the deadline came and went, signaling the Jaguars' commitment to the tight end for the upcoming season. They only would've saved $2 million by cutting him, so that doesn't seem to have been a legitimate possibility anyway. However, they can save $7 million by releasing him next season. Unless Thomas can put together a healthy and productive 2017 campaign, his days in Jacksonville may be numbered. The former All-Pro tight end has only played in 21 of 32 games as a member of the organization.

    Lions' Dan Orlovsky: Headed for free agency

    The Detroit Lions informed Dan Orlovsky that he will not be re-signed this offseason, The Detroit Free Press reports.

    Over the weekend, Orlovsky was told the team will let his contract expire at the end of the league year in order to go in a different direction at backup quarterback. The main beneficiary in this situation is Jake Rudock, the Lions' sixth-round pick in 2016 who will replace Orlovsky as the No. 2. It isn't clear what sort of market awaits the 33-year-old veteran, but Orlovsky should be able to latch on somewhere due to his serviceability as a second-string signal-caller as well as the veteran presence he can provide a locker room.

    The 33-year-old Dan Orlovsky acted as the Lions' backup quarterback in each of the past three seasons, but over the weekend he was informed the team will let his contract expire this offseason and promote Rudock to the No. 2 role. Here, Detroit is essentially swapping veteran experience for the youth and upside Rudock brings to the table. However, since starter Matthew Stafford hasn't missed a game in six years, Rudock is highly unlikely to see any meaningful playing time in 2017.

  • Tony Romo DAL QB
    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Expects release from Cowboys
    3d ago

    Tony Romo expects to be released by the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.

    A preseason compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae in Romo's back allowed the Cowboys to discover their quarterback for years to come in Dak Prescott, who along with fellow rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott helped their side to the No. 1 seed on the NFC side of the playoff bracket in 2016. With Prescott entrenched at the top of the QB depth chart, Dallas' front office has a tough call on its hands with Romo this offseason. If Romo is to be believed, he'll enter the open market in the coming weeks or months, giving him another chance to start elsewhere. Clearly, interested parties will have to weigh risk versus reward, but a 78-49 record as a starter and more than 34,000 passing yards on his odometer will likely supersede the soon-to-be 37-year-old's checkered medical chart.

    Connor Shaw (lower leg) expects to return in time for OTAs, The State reports. "I'm getting the strength back. I'm back running and throwing, so taking it day by day and getting better every day," the quarterback said.

    Shaw missed the entire 2016 campaign due to a broken leg suffered in the preseason. When healthy, he'll enter a fluid Chicago Bears quarterback picture. Not only is Jay Cutler (shoulder) facing an uncertain future with the organization due to his underwhelming on-field performance since signing a seven-year, $126 million contract in 2014, but the other two names above Shaw on the depth chart, Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley, are both set to be unrestricted free agents. Shaw and No. 5 QB David Fales, on the other hand, will be restricted free agents. Further complicating matters is the likelihood of the team selecting a quarterback in this year's draft. All in all, at this point in time it is anyone's guess what the future holds in store for the 25-year-old.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Future with Cowboys up in air
    4d ago

    Tony Romo 's future with the Dallas Cowboys is in question, the Dallas Morning News reports. "It's a juncture we have to address," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "I don't know how ultimately we will resolve this and nobody should be alarmed because you don't have all the answers. There are some issues here that you just have to see how the cards are playing. But we'll work to this."

    Romo suffered yet another debilitating injury in the preseason, paving the way for Dak Prescott to direct Dallas' offense with a surprising veteran savvy. As Romo grew closer to full health from a compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae in his back, Prescott established a stranglehold on the starting gig with an 11-game winning streak, the tail end of which Romo yielded to the rookie. Active from Week 11 onward, Romo served as Prescott's primary backup, making one brief appearance in the season finale. The Cowboys are now sure to explore all options, whether it's via trade, cutting Romo, or keeping him around as an insurance policy for Prescott.

    Lions' Ameer Abdullah: Remains on track to return for OTAs

    Ameer Abdullah (foot) remains on track to return by the start of offseason workouts in April, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    On the mend from an unspecified injury to his left foot, Abdullah said in early January that he anticipates being ready for the start of OTAs in April. His recovery remains setback-free and it doesn't appear as if it'll be much longer until he returns to full strength. The former second-rounder showcased his progress Friday by posting a video of himself on Instagram sprinting on a treadmill. With well over a month until the start of team workouts, Abdullah certainly appears on track to be ready. Of greater concern to his 2017 outlook than a potential delay to his offseason preparation is the Detroit Lions stated intent to upgrade the running game this offseason. This doesn't necessarily imply they want to specifically add another running back, but then again GM Bob Quinn didn't rule out such a possibility either.

    Seahawks' C.J. Prosise: Expects full health by offseason program
    3d ago

    C.J. Prosise (shoulder) is expected to achieve full health in advance of OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Prosise's rookie season was characterized by injury, as he dealt with a hip flexor in the offseason program, was hampered by a hamstring concern in the preseason, missed four games after suffering a chipped bone in his right hand in Week 1, and spent the Seattle Seahawks ' final eight outings (including playoffs) tending to a broken scapula. When healthy, though, he flashed between Weeks 7 and 11, racking up 29 carries for 170 yards and one touchdown, which he supplemented with 16 receptions (on 18 targets) for 195 yards. With such production on his professional ledger, Prosise is poised to serve as a change-of-pace option, at worst, behind Thomas Rawls in 2017, but the potential exists for an elevated role due to Rawls' own injury history.

  • Melvin Gordon SD RB
    Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Expected to take another leap in 2017
    3d ago

    New head coach Anthony Lynn believes Melvin Gordon (knee, hip) could rise to another level in his third season, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports. "He did a hell of a job from his rookie year to his sophomore year," Lynn said. "And I told him we can take this to another level. We're going to do some things running-wise that I can think can help him."

    It's interesting to note that Lynn did not discuss Gordon's burgeoning receiving skills, instead opting to discuss what he could improve while running the ball. Given Danny Woodhead's impending free agency, it remains to be seen if the Los Angeles Chargers view Gordon as a three-down back or if they'll prefer to utilize him strictly in the ground game. Regardless, it's clear Lynn and the rest of the Chargers' staff took notice of the Wisconsin alum's breakout 2016 campaign. Assuming he recovers from a hip strain and a knee sprain that caused him to miss the final three games of the regular season, Gordon should certainly be considered one of the top fantasy running backs entering the 2017 season.

Now in the stretch run, he posted a short video of himself jumping out of a pool last Wednesday, revealing that he's nearly 100 percent. Expect Johnson to embark soon on his preparation for a repeat of his breakout 2016 campaign.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Decision on Bucs future to be determined
    4d ago

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't expected to make a decision on Doug Martin (suspension) for the foreseeable future, Roy Cummings of FloridaFootballInsiders.com reports.

    Handed a four-game suspension in December for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Martin missed the final game of the 2016 season and promptly entered a treatment facility. Prior to the ban, he was a workhorse in the eight games in which he was active, averaging 18 carries per contest and corralling 14 of 16 passes. However, he also missed six outings in the early going due to a hamstring injury and was inactive in Week 16 for an undisclosed reason. The impetus was soon revealed, though, at which point his campaign was over. If Martin is still a Buccaneer next season, the backfield will be entrusted to holdovers Charles Sims (pectoral), a veritable pass catcher, and Peyton Barber for the first three games, while unrestricted free agent Jacquizz Rodgers, exclusive rights free agent Russell Hansbrough, and a draft pick or two may also be in the fold.

    Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a policy officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December. The receiver was released by the Cardinals immediately after that incident, but later signed with the New England Patriots for the remainder of the season. Following his sentencing, Floyd will serve 24 days behind bars before spending 96 days on house arrest. He'll also be required to pay a $5,000 fine, perform community service and attend an alcohol abuse class.

    Browns' Terrelle Pryor: Unlikely to receive franchise tag

    The Cleveland Browns don't expect to use the franchise tag on Terrelle Pryor (finger), Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The Browns' desire to retain Pryor isn't in question; the issue at hand is the price it would take to re-sign him. Should Cleveland slap Pryor with the franchise tag, the Browns would be on the hook to pay him north of $15 million in 2017. By comparison, Julio Jones and A.J. Green are scheduled to make $11.5 million and $10.3 million in base salary, respectively. The deadline to assign franchise tags is March 1. After that, Pryor and the Browns have until March 9 to reach a long-term deal or else the receiver will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. Pryor is progressing from the finger surgery he underwent in mid-January, as the video he posted on Twitter today revealed he's now able to hold weight in his right hand. Barring any sort of setback, he should be full go for the start of offseason workouts in April regardless of whatever roster he's on.

    Giants' Roger Lewis: Poised for more work next season
    4d ago

    Roger Lewis will have a chance to increase his workload in 2017 due to the release of Victor Cruz, NJ.com reports.

    As an undrafted free agent, Lewis never seriously threatened the trio of Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Cruz for snaps, but his ability on special teams helped him avoid the inactive list starting in Week 4 last season. Despite starting for Cruz in Week 10, Lewis never posted more than one reception in a given game, finishing the campaign with seven receptions (on 19 targets) for 97 yards and two touchdowns across 13 contests. Lewis far outpaced fellow wideout Tavarres King in terms of snaps -- 207 versus 76 -- but the latter showed late-season promise as a receiver, gathering in a 44-yard pass in Week 17 before notching the New York Giants ' only touchdown during their wild-card defeat in Green Bay. As a result, King may have a leg up this offseason, but Lewis will nonetheless compete for the third receiver job behind Beckham and Shepard.

    Tavarres King will have an opportunity to fill the shoes of the recently released Victor Cruz in 2017, NJ.com reports.

    Last season, the New York Giants ' passing attack largely revolved around Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, Victor Cruz, and Will Tye, each of whom received at least 70 targets. Among the remaining skill position players, only running back Rashad Jennings (42) surpassed 25, while the next most utilized wideout was Roger Lewis with 19. Meanwhile, King carried just one six-yard catch into Week 17, when he doubled his reception count with a 44-yard grab. Proving it wasn't an aberration, Lewis recorded the Giants' sole touchdown in a three-catch, 73-yard performance in their wild-card loss at Green Bay. With Cruz now out of the picture, King will have every chance to lock down a regular role on the outside.

    Although Fitzgerald didn't shed light on his health often during the Cardinals' underwhelming campaign, he frequently received the oft-used "veteran rest day" in order to avoid undue physical stress during practice. In advance of the Super Bowl, though, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Fitzgerald "got beat up, was dealing with several nagging injuries" in 2016. Fitzgerald took time to make a decision on his future, which was seemingly tied to that of quarterback Carson Palmer. Upon opting to return as of Feb. 1, Palmer made a similar call last Thursday, ensuring the duo will suit up together for the fifth year in a row.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Potential solution discovered for sickle-cell trait
    4d ago

    The Arizona Cardinals may have found a solution for John Brown 's sickle-cell trait, ArizonaSports.com reports. "He is very healthy, looks like they found the issue," team president Michael Bidwill said Tuesday. "We'll get Smoke back the way we had him."

    After Brown was diagnosed in Week 7, he was missing in action within the Cardinals' offense, surpassing 30 yards receiving in only two of nine contests. For a burner like Brown, his 55.6 percent catch rate (15 receptions on 27 targets) during that stretch wasn't unexpected, but issues with fatigue conspired to inhibit his varied skill set. If an answer to his health woes has been found, he'd be the obvious candidate for third option in the mind of Carson Palmer behind Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson. In such a scenario -- and assuming no additions on the receiving front in the offseason -- Brown could hearken back to his first two campaigns, when he hauled in 12 touchdowns and racked up 1,699 yards on 204 targets.

    Willson has reached the end of his rookie contract, meaning he's set to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. After recording 74 catches for 976 yards and seven touchdowns through his first four seasons, Willson's production is strikingly similar to that of his former college roommate, Vance McDonald, who was guaranteed $9 million over three years from the 49ers back in December. With Jimmy Graham scheduled to count $10 million against the cap next season, and after Seattle spent a third-round pick on Nick Vannett last year, Willson's projected value could very well lead him to sign elsewhere this offseason.

    A lengthy recovery from offseason ankle surgery pushed back Green's debut as a Steeler to Week 10, but he was only active for six games before a concussion reared its head in Week 15, keeping him sidelined during the team's run to the AFC championship game. Beset by concussions in the past, there's no telling when he'll rid himself of symptoms. For Green's sake, general manager Kevin Colbert expects the tight end to be a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers ' roster next season, per Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter.

    The incident precipitated Seferian-Jenkins' release from the Buccaneers, with whom he spent the first two seasons of his career. Shortly after he was jettisoned, the TE-needy New York Jets claimed him off waivers, and while he led his positional group across the board, he accounted for just 10 catches (on 17 targets) for 110 yards across seven games due to a couple of injuries. Ultimately, he missed the season finale with a hamstring issue, which shouldn't hinder his ability to participate in the offseason program. Owed $1.1 million in 2017, Seferian-Jenkins could lose a portion of his salary if the league opts to punish him for a second DUI offense.

    Miller confirmed the nature of his season-ending foot injury for the first time and, by proxy, what wiped away his entire 2014 campaign. Meanwhile, he set career highs in receptions (47), targets (64), and yards (486), while reaching the end zone four times in 10 games before the ailment forced him to the sideline. If he indeed fulfills his expectation and takes part in the offseason program, he'll very likely retain his role as the Chicago Bears ' top tight end, though the team could strike in what's expected to be a TE-heavy draft class.

    Jets' Darrelle Revis: Under investigation for off-field incident
    3d ago

    Darrelle Revis is under investigation for an alleged incident that took place early Monday morning in Pittsburgh, SNY.tv reports.

    Amid conflicting eyewitness accounts, an investigation is underway to determine if criminal charges are warranted for any of the parties involved. As a result of the episode, the New York Jets released a statement. "We've spoken to Darrelle. We're aware of the incident. We'll have no further comment." The organization was already weighing whether to cut bait with Revis, who is due a $2 million roster bonus on March 11 and $15.3 million for the 2017 campaign. Now with a potential legal matter pending, his seat may have grown hotter after the worst season of his 10-year career.

    Texans' A.J. Bouye: Unlikely to receive Texans' franchise tag
    3d ago

    The Houston Texans likely won't use their franchise tag on A.J. Bouye , the Houston Chronicle reports.

    After ranking in the top 10 in the NFL in terms of passes defended (16) last season, Bouye is a hot commodity as he becomes an unrestricted free agent for the first time. The only organization he's ever known, the Texans, are seemingly hamstrung by the commitments already made to others for 2017, including to fellow cornerbacks Kareem Jackson ($9 million) and Johnathan Joseph ($6.9 million). As a result, the front office likely won't allot more than $14 million in order to keep Bouye in the fold this fall. If the preceding comes to fruition, he should strike it rich on the free-agent market and become another team's No. 1 CB.

    Cardinals' Chandler Jones: In line for Cards' franchise tag
    3d ago

    The Arizona Cardinals are expected to place their franchise tag on Chandler Jones , the Arizona Republic reports.

    The NFL has entered the two-week stretch in which organizations can utilize both the franchise and transition tags, but decisions must be made by 4 PM ET on March 1. If the Cardinals make such a call, as expected, the two sides will have until July 15 to reach agreement on a multi-year contract. If terms aren't reached, though, Jones will play under a salary in excess of $15 million next season. No matter what comes to pass, he's slated to form a formidable pass-rushing duo with Markus Golden, who both reached double-digit sacks in 2016.
