    • Justin Reid HOU SS
      Texans' Justin Reid: Progressing in recovery
      20h ago

      Reid said his shoulder is "doing great" as he continues rehab work from labrum surgery in January, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      The 23-year-old played through the torn labrum down the stretch, but he required offseason surgery to repair the injury. It's unclear when exactly Reid is expected to be fully healthy, though there's been no indication thus far he's in danger of missing the start of training camp.

    • Josh Allen JAC LB
      Jaguars' Josh Allen: Primed for starting role
      22h ago

      Allen (shoulder) is poised to start at defensive end in 2020 following the departure of Calais Campbell, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL Jacksonville reports.

      Campbell has been the heart and soul of the defense since joining Jacksonville in 2017, but Allen is set to take over that role after the veteran was traded to the Ravens. Allen played in all 16 games and had four starts as a rookie, and he recorded 44 total tackles and 10.5 sacks despite mostly working in a rotational role. The 22-year-old was nursing a shoulder injury at the end of the regular season, but he was able to play in the Pro Bowl and tally one sack.

    • Deshaun Watson HOU QB
      Texans' Deshaun Watson: Adjusting to life without Hopkins
      1d ago

      The trade of DeAndre Hopkins leaves Watson with Will Fuller and Kenny Stills as Houston's top two wide receiver targets, Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com reports.

      Hopkins had become a crutch for the offense and rarely missed games. He topped the team in terms of catch and target share (29.3 and 28.8 percent, respectively). Watson and Hopkins were an elite combination, one that will be hard to replace. In steps the oft-injured Fuller and also Stills, both considered deep threats that are not near the franchise wideout that Hopkins had become. The Texans could add a wide receiver in what is considered a strong draft class for the position, but Watson has lost a security blanket and will need to adjust.

    • Kenny Stills HOU WR
      Texans' Kenny Stills: Larger role expected in 2020
      1d ago

      The Texans will rely on Stills more this coming season after the team traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

      Stills moves up to second on the depth chart, while Will Fuller becomes the team's No. 1 wideout. Trading Hopkins leaves a huge void in the passing game, one which head coach Bill O'Brien hopes to be filled by Stills and Fuller. Hopkins accounted for 29.3 percent of Houston's catches in 2019, the third highest share by any player in the NFL last season. The only player with a larger target share than Hopkins (28.8 percent) was New Orleans' Michael Thomas (33 percent). When factoring in Fuller's injury history -- he averages 5.5 games missed per season -- Stills stands a decent chance of moving up even higher than second on the depth chart.

    • Will Fuller HOU WR
      Texans' Will Fuller: Becomes No. 1 WR
      1d ago

      Fuller (sports hernia) becomes the Texans top wideout after the team traded DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

      The Hopkins trade continues to reverberate around Houston, and head coach Bill O'Brien is putting a lot of pressure on Fuller to be the No. 1 wide receiver. Fuller undoubtedly makes the Texans better -- in 2019, they were 8-3 and averaged 26.3 points per game when he played, 2-3 and 19.6 when he didn't. But it's important to remember that Hopkins was around for those games when Fuller was healthy, and keeping Fuller healthy for an entire 16-game schedule will be a challenge. Hopkins has missed just two games over seven NFL seasons, while Fuller has yet to play a full season and, on average, has missed 5.5 games per season during his four-year NFL career.

      Browns' Baker Mayfield: Has backing of new coach
      2d ago

      Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed Mayfield is the starting quarterback, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

      This is not surprising news, but the addition of free agent Case Keenum, who has history with Stefanski, caused minor rumbling following Mayfield's 2019 season in which he threw nearly as many interceptions (21) as touchdowns (22). "I believe in Baker Mayfield, he's our starting quarterback. He's a young player that I think we've all seen glimpses of this kid being a really good player," Stefanski said. The offense in 2019 was dysfunctional under former head coach Freddie Kitchens, but Stefanski has made moves to change the attack in 2020. The addition of a fullback (Andy Janovich) and a second tight end (Austin Hooper) suggests a pivot from the wideout-focused offense of 2019.

    • Nick Foles CHI QB
      Bears' Nick Foles: Headed for job competition
      3d ago

      Foles and Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will have an open competition for the starting quarterback job, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

      Coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky will get the first snap once the team is able to practice, though it sounds like the Bears aren't making any assumptions beyond that. The team dealt a fourth-round pick to Jacksonville for Foles, who then agreed to a restructured contract that maintains his guarantees but reduces his base salary, with the added benefit of player options to void the deal after 2020 or 2021.

      Bears' Mitchell Trubisky: Primed for job battle

      Trubisky (shoulder) will take the first snap whenever the Bears are able to practice, but coach Matt Nagy said it will be an open QB competition between the 25-year-old and Nick Foles, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

      Meanwhile, general manager Ryan Pace declined to comment on the team's impending decision on Trubisky's fifth-year option. The deadline to pick up the option is in early May, and while it likely would cost more than $20 million, the salary would be guaranteed for injury only. Trubisky is recovering from January surgery on a partially torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, while Foles has returned to health after an injury-marred 2019 campaign in Jacksonville. The Bears traded a fourth-round pick for the 31-year-old quarterback, who subsequently agreed to reduced base salaries in exchange for player options to void his contract after either of the next two seasons.

      Gabbert, who landed on IR last September due to a shoulder injury, is back with the Bucs, presumably healthy and now in line to work behind new QB Tom Brady. The No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft last saw regular-season action in 2018, appearing in eight games (including three starts) with the Titans.

      Bears' Mitchell Trubisky: Could keep starting job
      4d ago

      Nick Foles' restructured contract suggests Trubisky (shoulder) has a shot to keep the starting job, according to JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago.

      The Bears traded the Jaguars a fourth-round pick for Foles, who subsequently agreed to reduce his base salaries in exchange for a player option to void his contract after the 2020 or 2021 seasons. Trubisky is actually scheduled to have a slightly higher cap hit for the upcoming campaign, though Foles has incentives that ultimately could push him over the top if he gets considerable playing time. Bears GM Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy haven't yet commented on their expectations for a QB competition, or lack thereof. Trubisky is still recovering from January surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder.

      Titans' Derrick Henry: Signs franchise tender
      4d ago

      Henry signed his franchise-tag tender Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

      Henry's decision to sign the tender hints at confidence in working out a multi-year contract before the July 15 deadline, though Titans general manager Jon Robinson suggested Wednesday that the two parties will wait until summer to hammer out details. Any concern about a holdout can probably be put to rest, as there's no advantage to signing the tender if Henry would consider missing games in the absence of a long-term deal. Players that opted for the holdout route in past seasons declined to sign their franchise tenders, thus avoiding any fines for missing practices and other team activities.

      Love (knee), J.D. McKissic and Derrius Guice are all candidates for passing-down snaps, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

      With Love, Guice and Adrian Peterson already on the roster, it was a bit surprising to see Washington sign both McKissic and Peyton Barber during the first two weeks of free agency. There's still an opening on passing downs, but it appears Love will face tough competition for a spot on the 53-man roster, hoping to return strong after redshirting his rookie campaign. The 2019 fourth-round pick suffered an ACL tear in December 2018, then had a follow-up surgery in October to address stiffness in the same knee.

      4d ago

      General manager Jon Robinson said Henry and the Titans will wait until summer to discuss a long-term contract, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

      A previous report made it sound like negotiations were imminent, but it now appears the Titans will wait until after the draft and possibly longer. The team placed a franchise tag on Henry in mid-March, providing four months to discuss an extension before the July 15 deadline. If no deal is worked out by that time, Henry could decide to leave the tag unsigned and miss part or all of training camp without sacrificing any of his $10.3 million franchise-tag salary. Most players that choose the holdout path rejoin their teams before Week 1, but Le'Veon Bell in 2018 was a notable exception.

      Titans' Derrick Henry: Discussing contract extension
      5d ago

      General manager John Robinson said Wednesday that he wants to sign Henry to a long-term contract, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

      The two sides have three and a half months remaining before the July 15 deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign extensions. Henry has made it clear he wants to stay in Tennessee, where his late-season 2018 breakout carried over to a massive campaign in 2019. Big contracts for running backs have mostly turned out disastrous in recent seasons, but Henry has the advantage of starting his pro career with lighter workloads in offenses that also featured DeMarco Murray in the backfield.

    • Jordan Howard MIA RB
      Dolphins' Jordan Howard: Moves past shoulder injury
      8d ago

      Howard (shoulder) said Thursday that he's fully healthy after a shoulder stinger sidelined him for most of the second half of the 2019 season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. "I'm back to 100 percent now," Howard said. "It took a while, but I'm finally back to being 100 percent."

      As a member of the Eagles last season, Howard was the team's leading rusher through its first nine games, but he logged just one snap over Philadelphia's final eight games -- including a wild-card round loss to Seattle -- while managing the injury. After being active but going unused in the playoffs, Howard admitted afterward that he hadn't fully regained strength in his shoulder, but he now looks to be in a good spot health-wise following two-plus months of rest and rehab. The Dolphins' decision to sign Howard to a two-year, $10 million deal in the first week of free agency implies confidence in his health, and the 25-year-old tentatively looks in line to lead Miami's ground game in 2020. He could face more of a challenge for the top job, however, if the Dolphins invest an early round pick into a running back during April's draft.

    • Melvin Gordon LAC RB
      Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Willing to share with Lindsay
      10d ago

      Gordon anticipates working in a "one-two punch" with Phillip Lindsay (wrist) in the Denver backfield, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports.

      Broncos GM John Elway used the same terminology earlier this week, suggesting both Gordon and Lindsay will have key roles in the offense. Gordon's two-year, $16 million contract suggests he'll be the "one" in that one-two punch, though it's Lindsay who owns the impressive career average of 4.9 yards per carry. Gordon's mark of 4.0 YPC has been oft-cited as a criticism, and while there is some merit to the argument against him, it's also true that he's spent most of his career running behind subpar offensive lines. The breakdown of snaps and carries appears uncertain, but Gordon should at least have the advantage when it comes to pass-catching and goal-line work.

      Watkins and Kansas City agreed Friday to a one-year, $9 million contract with up to an additional $7 million in incentives, Yahoo! Sports' Terez A. Paylor reports.

      Watkins would have counted $21 million against Kansas City's cap space under the original deal, which was signed in the last of its three years. There's probably something to infer from the fact that the Chiefs didn't extend Watkins -- he simply took a paycut on his one remaining year -- but with this restructured deal he's all but guaranteed to start in Kansas City another year. If he retains the same role as he did in 2019, Watkins would likely serve as the Chiefs' primary slot and underneath wideout target. It's a development that will likely delay the proper breakout of second-year wideout Mecole Hardman.

The need for surgery kicked in a guarantee that covers $4 million of his $6.7 million base salary for 2020, but it won't come as any surprise if Burton is cut or traded before Week 1, considering the Bears signed fellow tight end Jimmy Graham to a two-year, $16 million contract in mid-March.

      Ebron said he's not yet recovered from surgery on his ankle, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "If the season started today, I don't think I'd be able to 100 percent perform," Ebron added Thursday.

      Ebron initially injured his ankle Aug. 4 but played through the pain until Week 12, after which he was shut down for the rest of the campaign. After breaking out for 13 touchdowns in his first year with the Colts in 2018, the aforementioned injury, among other things, contributed to him managing just three TDs last season. Since undergoing an initial procedure in early December, Ebron more recently had his ankle examined and "cleaned out" by a doctor in Houston. While he hasn't been looked at by the Steelers' medical staff, he's slated to be healthy once the team reconvenes for activities, whenever that may be.

      Despite signing Austin Hooper, the Browns aren't expected to trade Njoku this offseason, ESPN.com's Jake Trotter reports.

      Hooper's presence will make it harder for Njoku to draw targets and establish fantasy value, but the young tight end should nonetheless have an important role under new coach Kevin Stefanski, who frequently utilized multi-TE formations while serving as offensive coordinator in Minnesota last year. It's also worth noting that the Browns don't have an established No. 3 wide receiver, though they did trade for fullback Andy Janovich (elbow) a couple weeks ago. The team has until early May to make a decision on Njoku's fifth-year contract option for 2020, with a report from February suggesting it likely would be picked up. The Hooper signing might change things, and it might also make the Browns more receptive if another team comes calling with a generous trade offer for Njoku.

      Vinatieri struggled through the worst season of his lengthy career in 2019, missing eight field-goal attempts and six PATs in 12 games before a left knee injury forced him to injured reserve in early December. He's hoping to bounce back from surgery and play a 25th NFL season, but the 47-year-old likely will need to compete with Chase McLaughlin if he does in fact re-sign with the Colts. McLaughlin saw action for three different teams last year, converting 18 of 23 field-goal attempts (78.3 percent) and each of his 26 PATs, with all five misses coming in the 40-to-49-yard range. Vinatieri wouldn't necessarily be the favorite in a job battle.

      Zuerlein has reached agreement on a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

      Coming off a down season with nine missed field goals, Zuerlein will settle for a contract that leaves him outside the top tier at his position, and he may even need to compete with Kai Forbath -- who recently signed a one-year contract -- for the placekicking job. Zuerlein, the presumptive favorite, still has plenty of leg strength, as evidenced by his five conversions from 50-plus yards for the Rams last season. The 32-year-old primarily struggled on medium-distance kicks, going 5-of-11 in the 40-49 range. The winner between Zuerlein and Forbath should be useful for fantasy purposes, considering Dallas led the NFL in yards (6,904) and field-goal attempts (40) last year.

      The 23-year-old played through the torn labrum down the stretch, but he required offseason surgery to repair the injury. It's unclear when exactly Reid is expected to be fully healthy, though there's been no indication thus far he's in danger of missing the start of training camp.

      22h ago

      Allen (shoulder) is poised to start at defensive end in 2020 following the departure of Calais Campbell, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL Jacksonville reports.

      Campbell has been the heart and soul of the defense since joining Jacksonville in 2017, but Allen is set to take over that role after the veteran was traded to the Ravens. Allen played in all 16 games and had four starts as a rookie, and he recorded 44 total tackles and 10.5 sacks despite mostly working in a rotational role. The 22-year-old was nursing a shoulder injury at the end of the regular season, but he was able to play in the Pro Bowl and tally one sack.

      Bengals' Shawn Williams: Kept instead of Kirkpatrick
      3d ago

      The Bengals decided to keep Williams on the roster instead of Dre' Kirkpatrick in the wake of their free agency moves in the secondary, Chris Rolling of USA Today reports.

      Williams has a cheaper price tag than Kirkpatrick and can play multiple positions, though his stint as a linebacker last year was more of a last resort and didn't go all that well.

      Rams' Michael Brockers: Medically cleared
      3d ago

      Brockers (ankle) passed a physical to finalize his three-year contract with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Brockers originally agreed to a three-year deal with the Ravens, but it later fell through because the team was concerned about an ankle sprain he suffered in Week 17 of last season. The Rams don't seem bothered by the issue and thus will keep their 2012 first-round pick in the fold.

      Damarious Randall: Heads to Las Vegas
      3d ago

      Randall signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Thursday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

      Randall is coming off back-to-back solid seasons with the Browns, posting 61 tackles, 2.5 sacks and six defended passes across 11 games in 2019, though his play was marred by a handful of disciplinary issues. The 27-year-old safety will now get a shot to prove himself in Oakland's secondary, where he stands to play a reserve role. The Raiders' decision to sign Randall comes shortly after the team's previously agreed upon deal with Eli Apple fell through, so it may also be worth noting that he boasts significant experience at cornerback.
