    Bengals' Tee Higgins: Expected to receive franchise tag
    21h ago

    The Bengals informed Higgins (hamstring) on Friday that he will receive the franchise tag, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    With the tag deadline still a week away, the Bengals have skipped negotiations for a long-term deal by letting Higgins know he will be franchised. A new contract still is a possibility, but this is apparently the most likely route as of now. The 25-year-old battled injuries during his fourth season in Cincinnati en route to career lows in yards (656) and touchdowns (five) in 12 games.

    Rams' Demarcus Robinson: Re-signs with Rams
    1d ago

    Robinson is re-signing with the Rams on a one-year, $5 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Robinson spent much of 2023 buried on the Rams' depth chart but then replaced Tutu Atwell as the No. 3 receiver down the stretch and put together an impressive streak of production. Robinson scored a TD in four straight games in December and had five consecutive outings with at least 44 yards and 12 PPR points. It was his seventh straight season with more than 200 receiving yards but less than 500, with the veteran recording career highs for yards per catch (14.3) and yards per target (9.5). Robinson will turn 30 in September and might still face competition for the No. 3 WR job behind Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp.

    Emmanuel Ogbah: Officially cut by Miami
    1d ago

    The Dolphins released Ogbah on Friday.

    As expected, Miami is cutting ties with Ogbah and freeing up roughly $14 million in cap space by doing so. The 30-year-old edge rusher appeared in 57 games across his four seasons with the Dolphins, logging 114 total tackles, including 24 sacks, while also defending 19 passes and forcing five fumbles.

    Steelers' Mason Cole: Cut by Pittsburgh
    1d ago

    The Steelers released Cole on Friday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Since coming to Pittsburgh in 2022, the 27-year-old center never missed a game, appearing in all 34 of the Steelers' regular-season contests. By cutting ties with Cole, Pittsburgh is able to save just under $5 million in cap space, per Pryor. Ryan McCollum and Anderson Hardy both have opportunities to compete for the starting job this offseason, but the Steelers could very well add someone through free agency or the NFL Draft as well.

  • A.J. Brown PHI WR
    Eagles' A.J. Brown: Wants to stay in Philly
    1d ago

    Brown (knee) called into Sports Radio 94WIP on Friday to shut down trade rumors and say that he wants to stay with the Eagles.

    Brown took matters into his own hands after hearing trade rumors from Philadelphia media on the heels of the Eagles' late-season meltdown. He was clear about not wanting to be traded and not having any issues with QB Jalen Hurts, and Brown also mentioned feeling like the team's coaches were unfairly blamed for a disappointing 2023. All the same, Philadelphia will have new coordinators on both sides of the ball in 2024, having hired Kellen Moore for the offense and Vic Fangio for the defense. Assuming he's right about the trade rumors being bogus, Brown will remain a central figure in the offense for the second season of his four-year, $100 million extension. The knee injury that kept him out of a wild-card loss to Tampa Bay isn't expected to impact his preparations for 2024, and Brown figures to be taken late in the first round or early in the second round of most fantasy drafts, just as he was last summer.

  • Isaiah Oliver SF CB
    49ers' Isaiah Oliver: Let go by San Francisco
    1d ago

    The 49ers released Oliver on Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Oliver just had a fairly successful season as a rotational cornerback in his first year with San Francisco, but it seems as if the team has now decided to part ways with the 27-year-old. He was able to post 67 total tackles, two pass deflections and one interception while appearing in all 20 of the 49ers' contests (including playoffs). This move creates $2.4 million in cap space but also leads to an approximate $1.5 million dead cap charge, per Nicholas McGee of AtoZ Sports Nashville.

    Royals' Christian Chamberlain: Dealing with elbow tightness
    2h ago

    Chamberlain reported tightness in his left elbow during Saturday's spring training game against the Rangers, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Chamberlain is slated to undergo testing on his elbow, and the Royals will have an update on his status when the results come back. The 24-year-old southpaw reached Triple-A for the first time last season, where he accumulated an 8.51 ERA and 2.07 WHIP across 24.1 innings while striking out 35 batters and walking 28.

    Giants' Heliot Ramos: Feeling fine after getting hit
    2h ago

    Ramos is feeling better after taking a pitch off his right knee during Saturday's spring training game versus the Cubs, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Ramos looked to be in pain as he limped off the field after getting hit, but manager Bob Melvin said Ramos could return to the Giants' lineup Sunday, so it seems the 24-year-old outfielder escaped relatively unscathed. Ramos owns a .158/.220/.250 slash line through 82 career MLB plate appearances and is likely to return to Triple-A Sacramento to begin 2024.

    Ramos was removed from Saturday's Cactus League game against the Cubs after getting hit in the foot by a pitch, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Ramos was able to limp off the field after taking the pitch off his right foot/ankle. He will likely go into the clubhouse for imaging, and the Giants should be able to offer more information on the severity of his injury after Saturday's game.

    Angels' Michael Stefanic: Exits with quad strain
    4h ago

    Stefanic left Saturday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers early due to a left quad strain, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    The severity of Stefanic's injury is unknown, but the Angels will likely have more information following Saturday's contest. Stefanic slashed .290/.380/.355 across 71 plate appearances last season with Los Angeles and found consistent success in Triple-A as well, but his chances at making the big-league roster out of camp may take a significant hit if he's forced to miss a large portion of spring training.

    Nationals' Dylan Floro: Shut down with shoulder tightness
    4h ago

    Floro experienced tightness in his shoulder Saturday and will be shut down for a few days, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Neither Floro nor the Nationals are too concerned about his shoulder since Floro said he's dealt with similar tightness multiple times before during past springs. Still, the Nats will err on the side of caution and rest Floro, but the 33-year-old reliever's status for Opening Day shouldn't be affected.

  • Forrest Whitley HOU SP
    Astros' Forrest Whitley: Scratched from bullpen session

    Whitley did not participate in his scheduled bullpen session Saturday due to middle finger soreness, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Whitley experienced soreness when warming up for his bullpen session and will be evaluated by doctors. An extended absence could severely impact his chances of landing a reliever spot with the Astros to start the season. Whitley appeared in eight Triple-A games in 2023 and registered a 1-2 record with a 5.70 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 32:17 K:BB over 30 innings.

    Tyson (finger) won't play against the Warriors on Sunday.

    Tyson is set to miss a fifth straight game, and the rookie doesn't have a timetable for his return. His next chance to play will come against the Kings on Wednesday, but even if he ends up being available, he's not expected to have a big role off the bench.

    Nuggets' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Questionable to face Golden State
    3m ago

    Caldwell-Pope is listed as questionable to face the Warriors on Sunday due to a right finger sprain.

    The veteran sharpshooter has been dealing with a finger injury over the last few days, and while he was able to play through it against the Trail Blazers on Friday, he remains questionable to face Golden State. Considering he finished with nine points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 33 minutes against Portland, the tag seems like a precautionary move, meaning Caldwell-Pope could play -- and handle his regular workload -- against the Warriors.

    Gordon is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers with left groin soreness.

    Bradley Beal (hamstring) will miss his fourth straight game, and now his replacement with the first unit is in jeopardy of missing time. If Gordon is unable to shake this issue, the Suns could turn to Josh Okogie and Royce O'Neale to pick up some minutes on the wings.

    Murray has been battling shin splints in both legs, and coach Michael Malone has mentioned that he'll need to monitor his reps at practices and morning shootarounds to manage them. Murray was unable to play Friday against Portland, so Reggie Jackson started in his absence and played 22 minutes.

    Dobson picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning.

    The Islanders headed into the third period down 3-0, but Dobson tried to spark a comeback by helping to set up tallies by Anders Lee and Brock Nelson.

    Sorokin stopped 17 of 20 saves in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning, with Tampa Bay's final goal getting scored into an empty net.

    The Isles out-shot the Bolts 34-21 on the afternoon, but Sorokin's teammates couldn't solve Andrei Vasilevskiy until the third period, at which point they were already in a 3-0 hole. It was Sorokin's first regulation loss since Jan. 23, and in six starts since the All-Star break he's posted a 3-1-2 record with a .903 save percentage.

    Hedman picked up three assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

    The veteran blueliner had a hand in the Lightning's last three tallies of the afternoon, including the eventual game-winner by Brayden Point with the man advantage in the second period. It was Hedman's first multi-point performance since Jan. 27, and while he's currently riding a 12-game goal drought, he's collected 12 assists over that stretch.

    Kucherov scored an even-strength goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

    The 30-year-old winger gave the Lightning a 2-0 lead early in the first period before setting up tallies by Brayden Point in the second and Luke Glendening in the third. Kucherov is on the brink of becoming the first player in the NHL this season to reach the century mark in scoring. Through 58 games, he's piled up 37 goals and 98 points.

    Vasilevskiy turned aside 32 shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

    The 29-year-old netminder snapped a three-start losing streak with a strong effort, as he took a shutout into the third period before the Isles made things a bit interesting. The win was Vasilevskiy's 20th, marking the eighth straight season he's reached that mark. After his recent skid, he still sports a disappointing 2.95 GAA and .897 save percentage through 34 outings.

He's having a solid first season with the Devils, and through 56 games, Toffoli has 24 goals and 41 points.
