  • Tyron Johnson CIN WR
    49ers' Tyron Johnson: Finds new squad
    7h ago

    Johnson signed a reserve/future contract with the 49ers on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Johnson appeared in four games during the 2022 season, two with the Raiders and two with the Texans. The 27-year-old has also spent time with the Jaguars and most notably the Chargers, with whom he had 20 catches on 26 targets for 398 yards and three touchdowns in his rookie 2020 campaign. He'll work to make the most of his new opportunity in San Fransisco in 2023.

  • A.J. Green ARI WR
    A.J. Green: Announces retirement
    9h ago

    Green announced his retirement via Instagram on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Green was drafted by the Bengals with the No. 4 overall pick in 2011 and spent 10 seasons with Cincinnati before joining the Cardinals. In his first campaign with Arizona (2021), he finished with 54 receptions on 92 targets for 848 yards and three scores, his best season since 2017. However, he struggled to make much of an impact in 2022 and has decided to hang up the cleats with Arizona's future unclear due to coach Kliff Kingsbury's firing and Kyler Murray's ACL rehab. Green, a seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time All Pro, finishes his 12-year career with 727 receptions, 10,514 yards and 70 touchdowns.

  • Mecole Hardman KC WR
    Chiefs' Mecole Hardman: Placed on injured reserve
    10h ago

    Kansas City placed Hardman (pelvis) on injured reserve Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Hardman had been sidelined since Week 9 due to the pelvic injury before he returned to action in the AFC Championship Game against the Bengals. However, he aggravated the issue in the second half of the contest and was considered doubtful for Super Bowl LVII after the first week of preparation. It's not surprising to see the speedy wideout ruled out for the final game of the season, but his move to IR opens up a roster spot for the Chiefs, who've filled the vacancy by activating Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) from IR.

    The Chiefs activated Edwards-Helaire (ankle) off the injured reserve list Monday.

    Kansas City placed Mecole Hardman (pelvis) on IR in a corresponding move. Edwards-Helaire last saw game action Week 11, but he's managed to return from his high-ankle sprain with roughly a week left to practice ahead of Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, Feb. 12. Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon have been impactful as the Chiefs' backfield leaders since Edwards-Helaire's initial injury, so it remains to be seen how touches will be distributed in the big game versus Philadelphia. The extent of Edwards-Helaire's participation in practice could be telling as to his potential workload.

    1d ago

    Dwelley had three receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown across 12 active regular-season games in 2022.

    Dwelley was able to produce a couple of big plays while George Kittle recovered from an injury to start the season, but he ultimately was limited to special teams for the majority of the year. The 27-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he is unlikely to land in a situation that warrants fantasy consideration after posting forgettable totals through the first five years of his pro career.

    49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Disappointing rookie season

    Davis-Price rushed for 99 yards and no touchdowns on 34 attempts across six regular-season games in his rookie season.

    Davis-Price failed to earn a significant role on offense at any point of the season, despite the 49ers needing running back depth. The 2022 third-round pick struggled in limited opportunities, averaging a mediocre 2.9 yards per carry while being limited to a healthy scratch most weeks. Davis-Price will have to prove himself in training camp in order to earn a roster spot next season, as he currently sits fourth on San Francisco's depth chart prior to the draft and free agency.

    Seahawks' Geno Smith: Contract talks underway
    2d ago

    Smith has reportedly had positive contract negotiations with the Seahawks thus far, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Smith would likely be one of the top signal callers if he were to hit the open market this offseason, but it appears as if the Seahawks would like to avoid that possibility, as talks regarding an extension are seemingly moving in a positive direction. The 32-year-old quarterback put up career-best numbers across the board in his first season as a starter with Seattle, but given this was Smith's first year as a starter since 2014, any extension would likely be of the shorter variety as the team attempts to safeguard itself from any sort of regression.

  • Patrick Mahomes KC QB
    Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: In good standing for Super Bowl
    3d ago

    Mahomes (ankle) doesn't have a designation after the first week of preparation ahead of Super Bowl LVII against the Eagles on Sunday, Feb. 12.

    Super Bowl participants are required to file two full weeks of injury reports, and Mahomes remains in good standing to be the Chiefs' starting quarterback in the upcoming contest. Still, he continues to be listed on reports due to the high right-ankle sprain that he sustained in the divisional round against the Jaguars and played through in the AFC Championship Game versus the Bengals. Despite being somewhat hindered this past Sunday and also losing a good portion of Kansas City's receiving corps due to injury, Mahomes still put up a normal stat line (326 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions on 67 percent passing). Assuming he gets through next week unscathed, he'll have a much tougher test on his hands against the Eagles' top-ranked pass defense from the regular season (179.8 yards per game).

    Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Remains full at practice
    4d ago

    Mahomes (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday.

    Mahomes continues to operate without on-field restrictions since suffering a high right-ankle sprain during the Chiefs' divisional-round win against the Jaguars. Playing through it during this past Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Bengals, he completed 29 of 43 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, despite wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), Kadarius Toney (ankle/hamstring) and Mecole Hardman (pelvis) all exiting with injuries of their own. Mahomes discussed his health Thursday, telling Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com that he dealt with some discomfort following the contest but nothing more. With Mahomes' availability not up in the air for Super Bowl LVII against the Eagles, the only question that remains is who among the aforementioned WR trio will be able to suit up Sunday, Feb. 12.

    Allen completed all three of his pass attempts for 22 yards in his lone appearance of the 2022 season, which came Week 9 in a 42-21 win over the Panthers.

    Allen's limited action reflected both Joe Burrow's relative health as well as the fact that the Bengals weren't often on the good or bad end of a blowout during the season. The 30-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent this spring, but Burrow has expressed hope that the Bengals will bring back Allen as his backup in 2023.

    Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Remains full practice participant
    5d ago

    Mahomes (ankle) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report.

    Like he was last week in advance of this past Sunday's AFC Championship Game, Mahomes would have logged all on-field work if the Chiefs had held a session Wednesday to kick off prep for Super Bowl LVII. He played through what was termed a right high-ankle sprain in the 23-20 win over the Bengals, looking visibly hobbled at times but still gutting it out while Kansas City wide receivers departed with a variety of injuries. Overall, Mahomes completed 29 of 43 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, despite all of JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), Kadarius Toney (ankle/hamstring) and Mecole Hardman (pelvis) dealing with health concerns that resulted in their early exits. All three players were listed as non-participants Wednesday, so the team's skill-position talent will be monitored to see who may be at Mahomes' disposal Feb. 12 against the Eagles.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo SF QB
    49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo: Run in Bay Area likely over
    5d ago

    Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Garoppolo (foot) to be a member of the 49ers for the 2023 season, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    It's been a whirlwind year for Garoppolo, who was shopped last offseason with the 49ers set to move on to 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance under center. However, Garoppolo's health was in limbo due to his recovery from surgery on his right throwing shoulder, and he eventually remained with the team after interested organizations settled their respective quarterback situations. When Lance suffered a season-ending right ankle injury Week 2, Garoppolo was pressed into action and held on to the starting role until he suffered a broken left foot Week 13, which allowed for the emergence of seventh-round rookie Brock Purdy (elbow). While both Lance and Purdy enter this offseason with health concerns, San Francisco's brass is comfortable with the pair moving forward, meaning Garoppolo will be allowed to test free agency once March arrives.

    Mason finished the 2022 season with 43 carries for 258 yards and a touchdown across 16 regular-season games with San Francisco.

    Mason was a surprise addition to the active roster out of training camp, and he parlayed that opportunity into a special-teams role to begin the year. The undrafted rookie eventually was called upon to replace injured backups, and he averaged 6.0 yards per carry in his limited action on offense. Mason is signed through the 2024 season, so he figures to operate as the 49ers' third back to open camp behind Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell (groin).

    Mitchell suffered injuries to both of his knees at different points of the season, resulting in a loss of 12 games in addition to his starting role. The 24-year-old remained productive backing up Christian McCaffrey with a healthy 6.2 yards-per-carry average when healthy. Mitchell did suffer a groin injury during the 49ers' playoff run, but it was considered minor at the time. The standout 2021 sixth-round pick remains under contract for the 2023 campaign, putting him in position to spell McCaffrey if health permits.

    After returning just five kicks in his previous four seasons, Jackson suddenly became a respectable kick returner while averaging the seventh-most yards per kick return (26.7) among players with at least 15 attempts. Thanks to an early season injury to Craig Reynolds, the Northwestern product also operated as a capable No. 2 or 3 running back most of the year depending on the availability D'Andre Swift. Now set to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent, Jackson seems set for a raise relative to the one-year, $980,000 contract he honored this past season.

    An arrest warrant was issued for Mixon on Thursday, after which the Bengals released a statement: "The club is aware misdemeanor charges have been raised against Joe Mixon. The club is investigating the situation and will not comment further at this time." While the initial charge now isn't actionable, the presiding judge of the court said it could be refiled after further investigation. As such, Mixon doesn't appear to be out of the woods yet on the legal front, meaning punishment from the NFL remains a possibility.

Both Toney and JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) have questionable designations after this week, while Mecole Hardman (pelvis) is doubtful and already has been deemed unlikely to play in the Super Bowl by coach Andy Reid. If this latter point comes to pass, the statuses of Toney and Smith-Schuster become of greater import to see if one or both will be available to quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle).

    Vannett played in nine regular-season games between the Saints and the Giants, finishing with four receptions on seven targets for 42 yards and no touchdowns.

    Vannett began the campaign with New Orleans before latching on with New York's practice squad in late November. He eventually joined the team's active roster but saw limited action behind rookie starter Daniel Bellinger. Vannett's overall catch and yardage totals during the campaign were his lowest since his rookie season in 2016 with Seattle. Bellinger is the Giants' clear tight end of the future, so the team isn't likely to prioritize bringing back Vannett, who will be an unrestricted free agent.

    4d ago

    Bellinger totaled 30 catches on 35 targets for 268 yards and two receiving touchdowns during the regular season in his rookie campaign. He added one rush for a two-yard touchdown.

    Bellinger saw his snap count rise steadily from Week 1 to Week 6 before suffering an eye injury against Jacksonville in Week 7. The issue required surgery and cost him four contests, but Bellinger immediately slotted back into a starting role upon his return and received the lion's share of New York's tight end snaps the rest of the way, including in two postseason contests during which he tallied three catches on five targets for 21 yards. While the rookie out of San Diego State didn't record more than five receptions or 42 yards in any game during the campaign, he made at least one catch in every contest after Week 1 and solidified his place as the Giants' tight end of the future. New York has a bevy of pass catchers along with quarterback Daniel Jones slated for free agency this offseason, so Bellinger's outlook for next year could be impacted by who the team adds, retains and parts ways with.

    Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Likely to depart as free agent

    Gesicki is expected to part ways with the Dolphins as a free agent this offseason, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Gesicki secured 32 of 52 targets for 362 yards and five touchdowns across 17 regular-season appearances with the Dolphins in 2022, and general manager Chris Grier said he has "earned the right to be a free agent" after a year playing on the franchise tag. The tight end appeared a questionable fit in coach Mike McDaniel's scheme even ahead of this past campaign, and despite Miami's coaching staff relaying continued optimism that the athletic tight end would keep a key role on offense, he ended up with his lowest receiving marks since his rookie season. Though Gesicki continued to flash occasional playmaking ability when called upon, his underwhelming utilization in McDaniel's scheme makes it seem unlikely he re-signs with the Dolphins. Other franchises in the league may be more willing to feature Gesicki's receiving skill set.

After generating a 52-414-2 receiving line on 68 targets over his 13 appearances during the regular season, Hurst likely won't be keen on settling for a one-year deal as he heads back into free agency this spring.

Among other things, he went 8-for-9 on field-goal attempts from beyond 50 yards, finishing with his most makes from that distance in his 13 seasons as a pro. Gano struggled at times with his accuracy early in his career, but he's since become one of the league's most reliable kickers, making 132 of 143 (92.3 percent) of his field-goal tries over the past five campaigns. Gano has one year remaining on his current contract and figures to be the Giants' primary placekicker again next season.

    Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday that the team will be "starting over" at kicker, implying that Maher is unlikely to be retained heading into the 2023 season, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Maher is already headed for free agency with his contract set to expire at the start of the new league year, and Dallas apparently won't be looking to re-sign the 33-year-old. After bouncing around several organizations for much of his career, Maher appeared to find a home in Dallas in 2022. He was one of the NFL's top kickers during the regular season, converting 29 of his 32 field-goal attempts and totaling 137 points, tied for third in the NFL. However, his regular season performance was overshadowed by missing six of his final seven extra-point attempts over a three-game stretch between Week 18 against Washington and the Cowboys' two playoff games. Maher likely won't struggle to get an opportunity to compete for a kicking job during training camp and the preseason, but a team may be reluctant to hand him the gig outright heading into 2023.

    His impressive performance during the regular season, which saw Maher finish tied for third in the NFL with 137 points, was the good news. The bad? His dreadful postseason numbers, as he missed five of six PATs in two playoff games. The kicker is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the rough ending to his campaign could put his future with the Cowboys in doubt. With special-teams coach John Fassel expected to return to Dallas in 2023, however, Maher likely will get a chance to prove his postseason woes were just an aberration.

However, Vizcaino was not elevated for the subsequent loss to San Francisco in the divisional round, so he never wound up appearing in a game for Dallas.

However, the 27-year-old was seen limping off the field after he dislocated his toe at some point during the NFL's updated Pro Bowl events Sunday, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. This issue should not prove overly severe given that immediate X-rays on Garrett's injured toe did come back negative, per Cabot. Nevertheless, it still will be worth monitoring for potential updates on the defensive end's status heading into the Browns' offseason program this spring.

    Lions' Tracy Walker: Eyeing return for OTAs
    2d ago

    Walker (Achilles) recently suggested via his personal Twitter account that he will be ready for the Lions' offseason training program this spring.

    After tearing his Achilles in late September, it would be an impressive feat for Walker to make it back for the start of offseason workouts. Even if the Lions' coaching staff has different plans for its standout safety, it at least seems that Walker could be available well before the start of the 2023 season opener.

    Lions' Romeo Okwara: Records two sacks in 2022
    2d ago

    Okwara recorded eight tackles and two sacks over five games in 2022.

    After tearing his Achilles just four weeks into the three-year, $37 million contract Okwara signed in 2021, the Notre Dame product didn't return until Week 14 of the 2022 campaign, only making a difference during a two-sack performance against the Jets in Week 15. With the Lions able to save over $7 million against the salary cap by potentially letting him go this offseason, Okwara is not certain to return to Detroit in 2023.

    Lions' Michael Brockers: Slowing down
    2d ago

    Brockers (ankle) recorded four tackles and one pass breakup over six games in 2022.

    Once a dependable piece up front, the 32-year-old Brockers showed clear signs of decline early on this year, and he was largely a healthy scratch for the majority of the games after Detroit's Week 6 bye, though he was listed as out with an ankle injury for the season's final contest. Considering the Lions can save nearly $14 million against the cap by parting ways with him this offseason, Brockers would need to take a hefty pay cut to return to the Motor City in 2023.

    Lions' Josh Paschal: Two sacks during rookie season
    2d ago

    Paschal recorded 16 tackles and two sacks over 10 games in 2022.

    While a sports hernia injury delayed the debut of the second-round rookie out of Kentucky, Paschal handled over 81 percent of the defensive snaps in each of his first three career games only to suffer a knee injury in Week 10. After returning in Week 13 -- one week after James Houston burst onto the scene -- Paschal topped 28 percent of the defensive snaps only once, though he did flash his upside during with a two-sack performance in Week 16 against the Panthers. It's not clear how the edge rotation will look in 2023, but Paschal figures to be a key piece of an improving Detroit defensive front one way or the other.

    Lions' Alim McNeill: Posts 41 tackles in 2022
    2d ago

    McNeill recorded 41 tackles and one sack over 17 games in 2022.

    Becoming a building block for the Lions upfront, McNeill also flashed significant upside as an IDP asset (among defensive tackles) during his second season, like in Week 11 against the Giants when he racked up four tackles, one sack and 10 QB pressures -- the most for a 320-plus pound defensive lineman since at least 2006, per Pro Football Focus. The 2021 third-round pick figures to remain a key piece of the Detroit defense in 2023, when McNeill should continue to log upward of 80 percent of the defensive snaps per game.
