    Giants' Mark Glowinski: Likely to be let go
    1h ago

    Glowinski is expected to be released by the Giants on Saturday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The move will save the Giants $5.7 million in cap space. It's a bit of a curious decision given the team already projects to have over $30 million in cap space entering the offseason and Glowinski was rated as the team's best offensive lineman by PFF, but the 31-year-old hardly played up the standard many hoped after he signed a three-year, $20 million deal in 2022. Expect the Giants to retool almost every level of an offense that finished fourth worst in yards per game last year.

    Giants' Darren Waller: Not certain to return after all
    3h ago

    Waller still hasn't decided whether he will return to the Giants for the 2024 season or retire, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

    Early Friday, news emerged that Waller had contemplated retirement during the offseason but ultimately decided to return. However, the veteran tight end subsequently texted the Post to explain that, despite those reports, he is undecided about retirement. New York gave up a third-round draft pick to acquire Waller from the Raiders in March of 2023, and it's safe to assume that the organization was expecting to get more than one season out of him when making that deal. If Waller does decide to retire, it would be a significant blow to the Giants' air attack, as he ranked second on the team with 52 catches and 552 receiving yards last season despite playing in only 12 games.

    Buccaneers' Mike Evans: To test free agency
    16h ago

    Evans plans to hit free agency for the first time in his career, Dianna Russini of The Athletic reports.

    While Evans and the Buccaneers remain in contract discussions, the veteran pass catcher wants to explore his options. Thus, it does not mean his time in Tampa Bay is over, but rather, that he plans on hearing from all teams before making a decision. The 30-year-old has been with the team for all 10 years of his NFL seasons and is coming off a campaign where he recorded 1,255 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns.

    Patriots' Nathan Rourke: Set to re-sign with New England
    18h ago

    Rourke is slated to re-sign with the Patriots, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Patriots claimed Rourke off waivers from the Jaguars back in December, and the 25-year-old will remain with the team in 2024 to provide quarterback depth. At this stage, however, it remains to be seen who Rourke will be working behind this coming season, with Mac Jones' future with New England to be determined and the franchise potentially adding a signal-caller in April's NFL draft.

  • J.C. Jackson NE DB
    J.C. Jackson: Released by New England
    20h ago

    The Patriots announced Friday that Jackson (illness) is being released.

    Jackson was reacquainted with the Patriots less than a year ago via a trade from the Chargers, but he was scheduled for a cap hit of over $14 million for the 2024 campaign. New England didn't specify that Jackson, who ended the 2023 season on the NFI list, is being cut with an injury designation, which would indicate that he's now healthy. Jackson's quality of play hasn't been the same since recovering from a ruptured patellar tendon in 2022, but he's still likely to garner interest on the open market.

    Logan Thomas: Being cut by Commanders
    20h ago

    Washington announced the release of Thomas on Friday, saving the team roughly $6.5 million in cap space.

    Thomas' release leaves the Commanders with about $1.7 million in dead cap space. The veteran tight end is heading into his age-33 season but logged a solid bounce-back effort in 2023, having secured 55 of 79 targets for 496 yards and four scores across 16 regular-season games. A proven contributor capable of moving the chains on offense, Thomas should garner real interest on the free agent market, though he's not guaranteed a chance at a true starting role at this point in his career. Washington also released veteran tackle Charles Leno in a cap-saving move Friday.

Cron to a minor-league deal with an invite to camp Friday. If Cron passes a physical, he could serve as the right-handed complement to Casas.

    Grizzlies' Lamar Stevens: Drops season-high 19 on Friday
    13m ago

    Stevens posted a season-high 19 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes off the bench during Friday's 122-92 loss to Portland.

    No Grizzlies starter scored more than 10 points Friday, and Stevens and Jake LaRavia (21 points) ended up carrying the load on offense for the club. Stevens has been a fairly consistent contributor in the Memphis frontcourt since joining the team at the trade deadline, and over the last seven games he's averaging 12.1 points, 5.1 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in just 20.7 minutes a contest while shooting 56.3 percent from the floor.

    Pistons' Ausar Thompson: Fills stat sheet admirably Friday
    14m ago

    Thompson totaled 15 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and five steals across 37 minutes during Friday's 110-100 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Thompson was excellent on both ends of the court Friday, filling out the stat sheet and making his presence felt on both ends of the court despite the fact the Pistons suffered a 10-point loss in what was the team's 50th defeat of the campaign. Thompson recovered a starting role on Feb. 7, and his numbers have been very good since then, averaging 11.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 steals per contest across his last 10 outings.

    Grizzlies' Jake LaRavia: Hits for career-high 21 in loss

    LaRavia amassed 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's 122-92 loss to Portland.

    The 19th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft has a golden opportunity in front of him due to all the injuries in Memphis, and at least for one night LaRavia took advantage, delivering a career-high scoring effort. In four games since returning from an ankle injury of his own however, the 22-year-old forward is averaging just 9.8 points, 4.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 threes and 1.0 steals.

    Goodwin closed Friday's 122-92 loss to the Trail Blazers with 10 points (4-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, four blocks and two steals across 34 minutes.

    The Grizzlies' mess of a depth chart continues to be a source of frustration for fantasy players, but Goodwin at least is showing that he can be a reliable defensive contributor. The 25-year-old guard has started three of the last five games, sitting out the other two as Memphis keeps an eye on his game count, and during those contests he's averaged 8.7 points, 6.0 boards, 4.3 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 threes.

    With DeAndre Ayton (hand) sidelined, Walker saw his minutes and usage off the second unit creep up a bit, and he posted his first double-double in six games since moving to the bench. Toumani Camara has been hit and miss as the starting power forward in Walker's place, but coach Chauncey Billups may not be inclined to switch their roles back until Walker shows some more consistency.

    Cunningham closed Friday's 110-100 loss to the Cavaliers with 21 points (6-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 37 minutes.

    Cunningham has taken a massive leap in his third year in the league, and while he was always considered an elite floor general, he's taken his scoring numbers to new levels in 2023-24. Cunningham has surpassed the 20-point mark in each of his five appearances following the All-Star break, averaging 27.0 points per game in that span as well as a career-best 22.4 points per contest throughout the campaign.

    Mantha registered a power-play goal during Friday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Mantha has points in three consecutive games and has notched 14 points over his last 15 games. The pending unrestricted free agent should garner some interest at the upcoming March 8 trade deadline should the Capitals choose to get some assets for him, but Mantha has been a key offensive cog for a Washington team that is still very much in the playoff race.

    Edmundson tallied an assist, three shots and three hits during Friday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Edmundson has three helpers in his last seven games would should boost his asking price should the Capitals become sellers in advance of the March 8 trade deadline. The 30-year-old is an effective, stay-at-home defender that could be very helpful for teams with Stanley Cup aspirations, but with just six points in 43 games on the season, he isn't much of a fantasy asset.
