  • Rico Gathers DAL TE
    Cowboys' Rico Gathers: Signed to Reserve/Future list with Cowboys
    3h ago

    Rico Gathers signed a reserve/future contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    The 2016 sixth round pick spent the entire season on the practice squad, as the Cowboys attempt to convert his raw athleticism into useful football skills. With Jason Witten getting older and Gavin Escobar unlikely to return to the team in 2017, there could be snaps available at tight end, but Gathers would have to show significant improvement in the offseason to be in the mix for an active roster spot next year.

    Martavis Bryant (suspension) has yet to apply for reinstatement, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Even after he files the requisite paperwork, there's no guarantee that Bryant's suspension will be lifted at the earliest possible date (or mid-March). More than likely, the NFL will take its time to ensure he's completed everything asked of him during his second suspension for a violation of the policy on substances of abuse.

    The Miami Dolphins will consider moving Kiko Alonso to the weakside linebacker position, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins don't have any issues with the play of Alonso in the middle but believe with their personnel it could make the team better should he switch to the outside. This plan could change of course should the Dolphins acquire a weakside linebacker via free agency or the draft this year.

    Chris Hogan said Tuesday that he sustained a "minor setback" with his thigh during Saturday's win against the Texans, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. However, Hogan added he "maybe could have returned."

    Previously, shoulder and back issues afflicted Hogan in his first season in New England, the latter of which forced a DNP in Week 11. His current bout with a thigh concern doesn't appear to threaten his upcoming availability, but Hogan will have three chances to prove his health in advance of Sunday's AFC championship game versus the Steelers.

  • Teddy Bridgewater MIN QB
    Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: No timetable on return
    2d ago

    According to coach Mike Zimmer, Teddy Bridgewater (knee) does not have a timetable on his return, The Sports Xchange reports.

    Bridgewater missed all of this season due to a serious knee injury suffered in late August. After undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL and dislocation of his left knee, Bridgewater was able to walk without crutches nearly two months later. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old still has a long way to go in his recovery, which could extend into next season. Although Zimmer couldn't pin down a targeted return for Bridgewater, he said earlier that Sam Bradford, whom the Minnesota Vikings acquired following Bridgewater's injury, "has earned the right to be the starting quarterback." That situation adds another layer of uncertainty to Bridgewater's fantasy stock, which obviously is reliant on him first returning to full health.

  • Jacoby Brissett NE QB
    Patriots' Jacoby Brissett: Sees more game action than expected as rookie
    2d ago

    Jacoby Brissett finished up the 2016 regular season with 34 completions on 55 attempts for 400 yards to go along with 16 carries for 83 yards and a TD over the course of three appearances (including two starts) for the New England Patriots .

    Brissett did not throw any TD passes or picks during that span, but the 2016 third-rounder did gain some valuable experience when thrust into action after fellow signal-caller Jimmy Garoppolo (who had been filling in for the suspended Tom Brady) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 2. Brissett subsequently missed time after undergoing surgery on his right thumb in October but was eventually activated off IR by the Patriots in December in order to reprise his depth QB duties.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo NE QB
    Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Throws for 502 yards in 2016
    2d ago

    Jimmy Garoppolo finished up the 2016 regular season with 43 completions on 63 attempts for 502 yards to go along with four TDs and zero picks over the course of six appearances for the New England Patriots .

    The 2014 second-rounder had an early-season opportunity to fill in for the suspended Tom Brady cut short due to a shoulder injury, but Garoppolo was nonetheless able to do enough in the time that he was healthy to potentially draw offseason trade interest. Garoppolo is under contract with New England in 2017, but with Brady still entrenched as the team's starter, the Patriots could be tempted to deal Garoppolo if the right offer comes along. Alternatively, they could hold on to him as a valuable insurance policy for Brady, who is set to turn 40 this coming August.

    Saints' Garrett Grayson: Signs reserve/future contract with Saints
    2d ago

    Garrett Grayson signed a reserve/future contract with the New Orleans Saints earlier this month, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Grayson was the Saints' third-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but he spent the past season on the team's practice squad after failing to crack the final 53-man roster out of training camp. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound quarterback out of Colorado State has not developed as quickly as the Saints have hoped, and he will presumably be given one last chance to earn a roster spot as Drew Brees' backup next season.

  • Ben Roethlisberger PIT QB
    Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Throws for 224 yards in divisional-round victory
    3d ago

    Ben Roethlisberger completed 20 of 31 passes for 224 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 18-16 divisional-round victory over the Chiefs. He also gained a yard on four rushes.

    Big Ben primarily got out of the way and let Le'Veon Bell and his defense handle most of the heavy lifting. That's not to say he didn't have an impact in the victory, however, as Roethlisberger made several impressive throws, including a 52-yard bomb to Antonio Brown and a 26-yard strike to Jesse James down to the Chiefs' five-yard line. His one mistake came when he got a tad greedy on the play following the latter completion, as he reportedly audibled out of a run and subsequently had his pass batted by Frank Zombo at the line and intercepted by Eric Berry. Roethlisberger was mistake-free otherwise, and will likely need a similarly pristine performance in next week's conference championship for the Pittsburgh Steelers to have a realistic chance of upending the Patriots on the road. Roethlisberger has now completed 33 of 49 passes for 421 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions over two postseason games.

    Devonta Freeman totaled 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's divisional-round win over the Seahawks.

    Freeman ran for 45 yards and a touchdown and hauled in four receptions for 80 yards in a big game against Seattle. Although Tevin Coleman was the more effective runner, Freeman led the team with his receiving yards. He'll need to have another strong game if the Atlanta Falcons hope to earn a Super Bowl berth when they face the Packers on Sunday.

    Coleman averaged 5.2 yards a carry on the ground and added three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown through the air. Paired with Devonta Freeman, the Atlanta Falcons have a solid 1-2 punch at running back. Coleman will look to help Atlanta punch their ticket to the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Packers.

    Danny Woodhead is "six weeks ahead of schedule" in his recovery from an ACL tear in his right knee, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    As he approaches the four-month mark in his rehab, Woodhead has already progressed to cutting, which bodes well for his personal goal of full health by the start of the offseason program. Where he'll be situated in a few months remains to be seen, though, due to his upcoming unrestricted free agency. If the San Diego Chargers keep him around as a complement to workhorse RB Melvin Gordon, Woodhead will help lead the charge in their relocation to Los Angeles.

    Nelson has participated in regeneration workouts but hasn't practiced with the team since fracturing his ribs in the Green Bay Packers ' wild-card win over the Giants. Only missing one week would be surprising given the injury Nelson sustained, but the team claims he's made significant progress and, if he can handle the pain, he'll likely give it a go Sunday. Expect updates on his practice status later this week. Any participation would be a positive sign for the star receiver.

The 2012 first-rounder finished up the 2016 regular season with 37 catches on 77 targets for 488 yards and five TDs in 15 contests, including 13 with the Cardinals.

    Lions' Eric Ebron: Sets goal for next season
    2d ago

    Eric Ebron 's goal for next season is to go for 1,000 receiving yards, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

    Ebron's 711 yards this season marked the most in any of his three professional seasons, as did his 61 receptions. That production came thanks to fewer drops, which made him a more reliable target for quarterback Matthew Stafford. Ebron's development was evidenced by the fact that opposing defenses started to scheme for him over the course of the campaign, and his stock could potentially benefit from having the added motivation of playing in the final year of his contract next season. That being said, Ebron has missed at least two games each year since entering the league, which could make it tough for him to reach the 1,000-yard mark, something only two tight ends managed this season.

    McManus, who notched 30 field goals last year, fell one successful kick shy of that mark in 2016, but didn't have a down year by any means. His 29 makes was good for 10th-most in the league and he never missed an attempt within 40 yards, outside of his lone miscue on an extra point.

    Bullock started the season filling in for Giants K Josh Brown, who was then serving a one-game suspension. Let go in Week 2, Bullock didn't get his next gig until Steelers K Chris Boswell suffered an abdomen injury in December. He was again only needed for one week, though, and was released shortly thereafter only to be picked up by the Bengals to replace a struggling Mike Nugent.

    Special teams wasn't the peak of the San Diego Chargers ' pride in 2016, and the kicking unit wasn't an exception. Not only did Lambo offer little to no dependability from far out, as made clear by his 0-for-3 mark from beyond 50 yards, the second-year player out of Marist also sent three kickoffs out of bounds during the course of the campaign, gifting great field position to the opposing team on multiple occasions. However, Lambo is still a young player and went 4-for-5 from beyond 50 yards his rookie season, so he could make for a bounce-back candidate in 2017 when he'll return to the Chargers on the last year of his current deal.

However, given how he did in fact play for the Jets, you never knew what to expect from him on a weekly basis, rendering him unserviceable in most formats. Case in point, look at his numbers from Week 9 and Week 10. In Week 9 against the Dolphins, Folk made three field goals and three extra points only to come back with a clunker (thanks to a missed PAT) the game after. With the team's quarterback situation far from solved, expect more uncertainty out of Folk in 2017.

    Justin Houston capped off his 2016 season Sunday with six tackles (five solo) in a divisional-round loss to the Steelers.

    Houston missed the team's final two regular-season games due to injury, but was deemed healthy enough to give it a go in the team's first playoff game. While he did record six tackles, the 28-year-old pass rusher was unable to get to Ben Roethlisberger in the contest and finishes his injury-shortened 2016 campaign with just four sacks over six games (including the playoffs). He remains under contract with the Kansas City Chiefs for another four years, but has played just 16 games combined in the last two seasons. The Georgia product may be a somewhat risky proposition in terms of health, but his injury history could make him a high-value IDP option in 2017 if he plays the entire season.
