  • Marcus Peters KC CB
    Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Wins Defensive Rookie of the Year
    12h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Marcus Peters was named Defensive Rookie of the Year at Saturday's NFL Awards Ceremony, Connor Orr of NFL.com reports.

    Peters was the eighth defensive player and third cornerback selected in the 2015 draft, but he outperformed his peers in a big way by collecting 45 of a possible 50 votes for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. He was tied with Cincinnati's Reggie Nelson for the league lead in interceptions with eight, and Peters returned two of those picks for touchdowns. Peters looks to be one of the steals of last year's draft and figures to be a key member of Kansas City's stout defense for years to come.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Named NFL MVP

    Cam Newton was named the NFL's 2015 MVP on Saturday, Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com reports.

    Newton earned 48 of the possible 50 votes for MVP, with Tom Brady and Carson Palmer as the other two signal-callers receiving votes. With 2014's top wideout Kelvin Benjamin sidelined for the season with a knee injury, Newton elevated his level of play and transformed Carolina's offense into the top scoring unit in the league. Newton accounted for a career-high 45 touchdowns in the regular season (35 passing, 10 rushing) and threw a career-low 10 interceptions. He took home NFL Offensive Player of the Year as well on Saturday and will look to cap off the season with a Super Bowl victory Sunday against the Broncos.

    Todd Gurley was named Offensive Rookie of the Year at Saturday's NFL Awards Ceremony, Connor Orr of NFL.com reports.

    Less than one year removed from a torn ACL in his final season at Georgia, Gurley found traction in his second career game on Oct. 4 against Arizona and was one of the best backs in the league from there. Starting with his 146-yard showing against the Cardinals, Gurley reached the 100-yard mark in four consecutive games. He finished the year third in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,106 behind only Adrian Peterson and Doug Martin. Gurley beat out Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston and Oakland's Amari Cooper to take home the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

    J.J. Watt (groin) was named the NFL Defensive player of the Year at Saturday's NFL Awards ceremony.

    Despite being hampered by hand and groin injuries down the stretch, Watt turned in another dominant season as the undoubted leader of the Houston Texans ' defense. Watt finished out the year with the league lead in sacks with 17.5 totaling 118 total yards lost to go with 50 quarterback hits and eight passes defensed. He beat out St. Louis' Aaron Donald and Carolina's Luke Keuchly to take home his third DPOY award.

    Johnny Manziel won't be charged by either the Fort Worth or Dallas police departments in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident from Saturday morning, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Manziel's exit from NFL circles seems to be more assured by the week, especially after details emerged from his most recent brush with the law. On Saturday, an argument with an ex-girlfriend turned into a harrowing experience in which he "restrained" and struck her multiple times across two jurisdictions. Eventually, he ran from her residence, but not before police were called and a helicopter dispatched in search of the quarterback. Although he has avoided criminal charges, the NFL is investigating the matter to determine whether discipline is in order.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Next evaluation will determine if surgery is needed
    3d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tony Romo will be evaluated in late February or early March to determine if surgery is necessary on his left collarbone, The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Before undergoing a CT scan last week, Romo fully expected to have surgery at some point in the offseason, but the Dallas Cowboys now have some options to ponder. If the team opts for the first one, a set of screws will attach a plate over the collarbone in order to stabilize the area and avoid another fracture. As for the second choice, if the next CT scan reveals a suitable amount of bone growth and regeneration to last week's base line, he may undergo a Mumford procedure, in which part of "the distal clavicle is shaved off or removed." The latter procedure is preferable, as it reduces long-term stress on the collarbone versus the attachment of a plate. No matter which path Romo takes, he'll face a 6-to-8 week recovery, setting him up to take part in the entire offseason program.

    Browns' Johnny Manziel: To be released in March

    Johnny Manziel will be released by the Cleveland Browns when the new league year begins on March 9, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

    Manziel added to his long list of off-field issues this past weekend when another domestic disturbance resulted in the authorities being called in to investigate. The Browns' front office has now officially had enough of Manziel and the distractions he brings with him and will opt to release him after just two seasons in Cleveland. However, the Browns cannot make the move official until the new league year begins in March. Now that Manziel's tenure in Cleveland has come to a close, it will be one of the stories of the offseason to see whether the embattled former Heisman Trophy winner can turn things around and convince a team to give him a second chance.

    Andrew Luck (abdomen) has fully recovered from the lacerated kidney he suffered against the Broncos, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports. "He's good to go. He's healed," said Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay on Tuesday.

    Luck's 2015 season was marked by shoulder and ankle injuries before suffering a lacerated kidney and partially torn abdomen on Nov. 10, which ultimately ended his season. After two months of recovery, Luck is now fully healed and those injuries should no longer be an issue moving forward.

    Thomas Rawls (ankle) expects to return to full health in time for training camp, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks ' official site reports.

    Rawls' season came to an abrupt end in Week 14, when he sustained a broken ankle, but not before notching 147 carries for 830 yards, nine receptions (on 11 targets) for 76 yards, and five touchdowns. He was afforded seven starts with Marshawn Lynch on the mend often, powering his breakout with four 100-yard performances. Still in the early stages of his recovery, Rawls requires a scooter to move about, as his foot remains in a cast. With Lynch's future with the Seahawks, let alone football, up in the air, though, Rawls may have a starting gig locked up in the not too distant future.

    Gurley was sidelined in the season finale with turf toe, yet he had no problem racking up 1,106 yards in just 13 games on the backs of five 100-yard efforts. While he put in impressive work on the ground, the running back boasts the skill set to contribute as a receiver, as evidenced by an 81% catch percentage (or 21 receptions on 26 targets).

    Gordon missed the final two games of his rookie campaign due to a knee injury, which was remedied via surgery with noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Jan. 5. While neither the nature of the ailment nor the procedure were revealed, Gordon is on pace to be ready for the opening of the offseason program in April. Once the fall arrives, he'll be aiming to bounce back from a subpar season in which he posted 184 rushes for 641 yards (3.5 YPC), 33 catches (on 37 targets) for 192 yards, and no touchdowns.

"He's been incredibly productive for us," Allen said. "Free agency is going to be a great test for him. If he gets a great contract [elsewhere], we're going to applaud him. If not, we're going to see what happens with us."

    Morris likely wants to test the open market, but his declining production and lack of receiving skills may ultimately lead to disappointment. While a return to Washington can't entirely be ruled out, it seems that the team is comfortable moving forward with a running back group led by Matt Jones and pass-catching specialist Chris Thompson.

    Hurns gutted out injury after injury in his second season en route to 64 catches (on 105 targets) for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games. Missing only one outing due to his residence in the concussion protocol, he nonetheless required sports hernia surgery once the campaign concluded.

    After sustaining the ailment in mid-August, it was initially reported that Cruz was dealing with a sprain, but recurring inflammation forced the New York Giants to shut down the fifth-year wide receiver during a Week 11 bye. With the "very rare" diagnosis official, he's expected to be 100 percent once the healing process from season-ending surgery is complete. While the recovery from this injury is accompanied by no issues long-term, the rehab process will nonetheless be monitored closely as the offseason proceeds.

Because he avoided a rib fracture in the process of landing on his back, he speculated that the fact he was miked up played a role in the injury, which left the Packers reeling at wideout in the eventual defeat. Nevertheless, with Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Aaron Rodgers is poised to have his entire arsenal of weapons healthy at the outset of next season.

While the Lions have noted "profound respect" for Johnson and will give him time to make a decision, Rapoport released another bombshell Monday, stating Johnson wouldn't return on his 2016 salary of $15.95 million, but rather would be offered a two-year contract with reduced cap figures similar to the one signed by Larry Fitzgerald last offseason. However, because Johnson has dealt with serious ankle injuries and general body soreness the last few seasons, the Lions' potential offer of a multi-year deal likely isn't an appealing one.

After tending to ankle issues throughout his career -- but more specifically over the past two campaigns -- Johnson has also dealt with increased general soreness in his body. In a statement made through the Detroit Lions ' organization on Jan. 6, he stated that the call would be confirmed, one way or another, in the "not-too-distant future," but he required less than a month to uphold his desire. Once he files the proper paperwork, he'll conclude his career with 731 receptions for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns in 135 games, including the second-most receiving yards per game (86.1) of any player in NFL history.

However, both Darren Fells (restricted) and Jermaine Gresham (unrestricted) are free agents, which may result in a jump up the depth chart.

    Six of his misses came from 50-plus yards, with the other coming from 40-49. Tucker can become an unrestricted free agent in March, and he has a very strong case to become the highest-paid kicker in NFL history. However, the Baltimore Ravens may opt to use the franchise tag, which would make Tucker a very nice bargain, at least for 2016. The most likely scenario features the Ravens using the franchise tag, then using it as leverage to negotiate a long-term contract.

    Finishing the regular season as the NFL's third-leading scorer, Catanzaro secured 28 of 31 field goal tries and 53 of 58 from the new extra-point distance en route to 137 points. When the opposition quelled the offense, he was still afforded plenty of field goals -- see Week 4 against the Rams and Week 6 at Pittsburgh -- but his opportunities dwindled starting in the season finale. Over the last three games, he netted two of three field goals and three of four extra points for a mere 12 points. While the Arizona Cardinals may not uphold this season's standard in 2016, Catanzaro should again augment one of the league's most-balanced offenses.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
