    • William Jackson CIN CB
      Bengals' William Jackson: Manages full recovery
      1h ago

      Jackson (shoulder) announced Thursday that he's back to full health, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Jackson clarified that he spent the entire 2019 campaign playing through a torn labrum in his shoulder. Despite managing a significant injury, he managed to suit up for 14 contests and record 37 total tackles, three defended passes and a lone interception. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Jackson also said that he would "love to come back" to Cincinnati in 2021, per Wilson.

    • K.J. Wright SEA OLB
      Seahawks' K.J. Wright: On track for Week 1
      3h ago

      Wright (shoulder) said Thursday that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason surgery and expects to be fully healthy for Week 1, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

      Wright handled 93 percent of snaps on defense for the Seahawks last season while starting a full 16-game slate. If he's indeed able to make a full recovery in time to kick off the 2020 campaign, he'll once again serve as a pillar of the team's linebacker corps. Coming off a career-high year in terms of tackles (132 total) and defended passes (11), Wright should once again be a valuable IDP asset entering his age-31 season.

    • CeeDee Lamb DAL WR
      Cowboys' CeeDee Lamb: Could make impact as returner
      9h ago

      Lamb could be used as the Cowboys' primary punt returner in addition to his duties on offense, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

      Dallas hasn't had a player return a punt for a touchdown since 2017 and didn't have a single punt return over 15 yards last season, so the door is wide open for Lamb to seize the job. The rookie receiver had three returns of 40-plus yards during his college career and an 8.8 yard average on punt returns, and his elusiveness in the open field could make him a weapon on new coach John Fassel's special teams unit.

      Jones (ankle) acknowledged on Twitter that he recently hosted Lions rookie Quintez Cephus and free agent signee Victor Bolden for workouts at his residence.

      Jones spent the final three games of last season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury. Considering he was seen planting and cutting on both of his ankles in the video he posted, it seems the 30-year-old is getting back to full health. Jones, in a contract year -- along with Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola -- is also giving the Detroit front office plenty of reason to keep him around -- n spite of his age and contract status -- given his displays of leadership.

      Taylor (foot) has been running routes and catching passes from Jimmy Garoppolo during recent workouts, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

      The 26-year-old missed all of 2019 due to a foot injury but appears fully recovered after undergoing numerous surgeries to address the issue. His quiet 2018 season (26 catches, 215 yards and one touchdown) and the injury bring question to his roster security as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. The 49ers have indicated he's still a part of the team's plans, but he'll likely be competing with Jalen Hurd, Dante Pettis, Richie James and Travis Benjamin for a roster spot.

    • Mitchell Trubisky CHI QB
      Bears' Mitchell Trubisky: Embracing competition with Foles
      3d ago

      Coach Matt Nagy said Monday that Trubisky (shoulder) has been "really, really good in the fact that he's taken this [competition] head-on," Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

      Nagy has previously stated that the team's Week 1 starter will be determined in an open competition between Trubisky and Nick Foles, whom the team acquired for a fourth-round pick in a trade with Jacksonville in April. The Bears then declined to pick up Trubisky's fifth-year option, a hint that Foles is viewed internally as the frontrunner to beat out Trubisky in training camp and the preseason. The 25-year-old demonstrated a career-low 6.1 yards per pass attempt last season while leading one of the least potent offenses in the league. He's also recovering from January surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder.

    • Dak Prescott DAL QB
      Cowboys' Dak Prescott: In touch with new coach
      6d ago

      Prescott has been in contact with new Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy even though he has yet to sign his franchise tag offer or agree to a contract extension, Jonny Auping of DallasCowboys.com reports. "There has been communication," McCarthy confirmed. "This is the way these business situations go sometimes and [I] respect that. I have confidence that it will work out."

      Under normal circumstances, Prescott being in contract limbo would have prevented him from participating in on-field activities with his teammates, but at the moment all he's missing are some virtual meetings. The fact that he's stayed in touch with McCarthy suggests the quarterback won't be behind in understanding any new wrinkles being added to the offensive scheme once in-person team activities are allowed to ramp up. Prescott and the Cowboys have until July 15 to work out an extension, a move that would free up additional cap space for the team -- otherwise he'll play out the 2020 season under the franchise tag at a salary of $31.4 million.

    • Joe Flacco NYJ QB
      Jets' Joe Flacco: Set to miss season opener
      9d ago

      Flacco (neck) confirmed Tuesday he won't be healthy in time for the Jets' season opener against the Bills on Sept. 13, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

      This was speculated after the veteran quarterback underwent a disc repair procedure in early April, and the Jets were aware of the recovery timeline when they signed him to a one-year, $1.5 million deal last week. Flacco will serve as the top backup to Sam Darnold once healthy, but David Fales and rookie James Morgan will compete in training camp for the job until the veteran is able to suit up. Flacco could still be cleared for contact sometime in September.

      Jets' Joe Flacco: Likely set for contact in September

      Flacco (neck) is currently throwing and expects to be ready for contact in mid-September, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

      The 35-year-old joined the Jets on a one-year, $1.5 million deal this week, but it doesn't appear he'll be ready to go for the season opener. It's not a major surprise since Flacco underwent a disc repair procedure in early April, and it's about on par with his initial recovery timeline. He's poised to serve as the top backup to Sam Darnold once healthy, but David Fales and rookie James Morgan should also compete for the role in training camp for Week 1.

      Jets' Joe Flacco: Lands one-year deal with Jets
      13d ago

      Flacco (neck) agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Jets on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

      Flacco isn't automatically considered a starter at this point in his career, but he will get an opportunity to serve in a backup role to Sam Darnold when he's healthy. Per Schefter, Flacco is expected to be available for non-contact work when training camp begins and figures to be cleared in full in September. He opened 2019 as the starter for the Broncos, but a neck injury cost him the back half of the campaign after he compiled 1,822 passing yards and a 6:5 TD:INT ratio over eight games. Flacco's new deal can net him up to $4.5 million if he hits his incentive-based bonuses.

    • Tom Brady TB QB
      Buccaneers' Tom Brady: Should have input into offense
      15d ago

      Brady is expected to have a substantial degree of input into coach Bruce Arians' offense on game days this coming season, Luke Easterling of SI.com reports.

      While this may have been the default assumption of many given Brady's pedigree, there's some question as to how much an offensive system that's typically reliant on longer-developing downfield routes would have to be adapted to fit the future Hall of Famer's skill set and preferences. Brady has enjoyed great success getting the ball out quickly over his career, and Easterling reports the 21-year veteran will have "plenty of control over the call sheet on game day" and will provide Arians with his favorite plays for every in-game scenario. However, the Buccaneers' head man is naturally still expected to weave his trademark aggressiveness into the playcalls, and to that end, Michael Silver of NFL Network recently relayed that Brady has been intensely studying Arians' existing offensive concepts since joining the team. Additionally, Rick Stroud and Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times report Brady and a large contingent of the team's skill-position players have begun working out together at Berkeley Preparatory School now that Florida has considerably loosened COVID-19-related restrictions.

      Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: Not guaranteed roster spot
      1d ago

      Samuels isn't considered a lock to make Pittsburgh's season-opening roster, Bob Labriola of the team's official site reports.

      A healthy James Conner returns as Pittsburgh's top back in 2020, and it's essentially an open competition between the other options behind him on the depth chart. Samuels is set to vie for a roster spot along with Benny Snell, Kerrith Whyte and fourth-round rookie Anthony McFarland. The 2018 fifth-round pick struggled on the ground with 175 rushing yards (2.7 per carry) last year, but he was more efficient in the passing game, catching 47 of 57 targets for 305 yards.

      Dolphins' Malcolm Perry: Inks deal as running back

      Perry has signed his rookie deal with the Dolphins and has been added to the depth chart as a running back, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

      Perry was taken by Miami in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He was a quarterback coming out of college, but it looks like the Dolphins intend on working him out of the backfield right away. The Navy product rushed for 2,017 yards during his senior campaign. Given his size (5-9, 186 pounds), he will presumably be used more as a gadget player for the team.

    • Justice Hill BAL RB
      Ravens' Justice Hill: Still in team's plans, maybe
      6d ago

      Coach John Harbaugh said he expects Hill to take a big step forward in his second pro season, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

      It's a reasonable expectation, but even an impressive offseason won't necessarily give the 2019 fourth-round pick a path to playing time in a backfield that also holds Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. It sounds like Harbaugh may carry four tailbacks on the 53-man roster instead of his usual three, especially if Hill and Edwards prove useful on special teams. Hill played 187 snaps on offense and 97 on special teams last year, averaging 3.9 yards on 58 carries, 8.8 yards on eight receptions and 18.9 yards on 12 kickoff returns. Any hope for 2020 fantasy value likely involves a trade or an Ingram/Dobbins injury.

    • Cam Akers LAR RB
      Rams' Cam Akers: New OC pumps tires
      8d ago

      Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell praised Akers' determination as a runner and ability to create yardage on his own, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. "You really saw the amount of personal grit and determination," O'Connell said of Akers' time at Florida State. "He was running against of loaded looks...you see the upside -- I think it was a great running back draft, there was a lot of depth there across the board -- but for us, and for me personally with Cam, just watching and thinking about where he could possible get to and maximized in our offense, it's really exciting."

      Though O'Connell acknowledged Akers faces a longer learning curve because of the unconventional 2020 offseason, there aren't many other obstacles in the rookie's path to a significant workload out of the backfield. Malcolm Brown's 197 career carries are the most among current Rams running backs, and 2019 third-round selection Darrell Henderson's disappointing rookie season consisted of just 95 offensive snaps over 13 games.

    • Chris Carson SEA RB
      Seahawks' Chris Carson: Not threatened by Hyde signing
      10d ago

      The Seahawks still intend for Carson (hip) to be one of their primary offensive weapons in 2020, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

      The team drafted DeeJay Dallas in the fourth round and signed Carlos Hyde (shoulder) to a one-year contract, providing some backfield depth behind Carson and Rashaad Penny (knee). Carson and Hyde are expected to finish rehabbing their respective injuries this summer, while Penny appears in danger of starting the regular season on the PUP list. A healthy Carson won't automatically match last year's averages of 18.5 carries and 3.1 targets per game, but it's at least within his range of possibilities. The Seahawks had initially hoped to sign Devonta Freeman, whose insistence on a larger contract inspired an audible to Hyde. A tough competition for backup work seems more likely than Hyde, Dallas, Penny or Travis Homer mounting a serious challenge for Carson's lead role. GM John Schneider mentioned Carson a few weeks ago, noting that the running back's recovery from a December hip fracture is going well, putting him on track to be ready for the start of the season.

      12d ago

      Hyde, who signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks on Friday, had surgery on his shoulder in February, but is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, Michael Silver of NFL.com reports.

      It's obvious the Seahawks were aware of the surgery before ultimately signing Hyde on Friday, but it might explain why the Ohio State product took so long to find a home this offseason despite rushing for a career-high 1,070 yards with the Texans last season. Expect the 2014 second-round pick to compete with Rashaad Penny (knee) for leftover opportunities behind nominal starter Chris Carson (hip).

      Enunwa (neck) is not considering retirement despite battling a career-threatening injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

      Enunwa's neck injury limited him to just one game in 2019 (12 combined regular-season games since 2017), and Cimini now reports that the Jets have ruled him out for the 2020 campaign. Despite the severity of his injury -- a timetable for the soon-to-be 28-year-old's return remaining undisclosed -- Enunwa relayed that he hopes to retake the field in the future. "If I'm capable of playing, then that's what I'll do," Enunwa said. He carries a fully guaranteed $6 million salary for 2020, and in 2021 he'll have a $4.1 million injury guarantee, so it remains in the Jets' best interest to stick with Enunwa throughout his rehab process and hope for a possible return to the field.

      Steelers' Vance McDonald: Role likely decided in camp

      McDonald and Eric Ebron likely will compete for starting reps at tight end in training camp, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

      McDonald played 69 percent of the offensive snaps as Pittsburgh's top tight end in 2019 and restructured his deal to remain with the team in March, but the signing of Ebron in free agency clouds the former's outlook for 2020. Despite seeing ample playing time last season, McDonald caught only 38 of 55 targets for 273 yards and three touchdowns, though the quarterback situation following Ben Roethlisberger's injury certainly played a part in the poor production. Regardless, McDonald's opportunities could become more sporadic if he doesn't separate himself in camp.

      Cantrell's first two years in the league were derailed due to injuries -- a bone bruise and a shoulder issue, respectively -- but he'll now get a shot to continue his development in Arizona, where he'll reunite with college coach Kliff Kingsbury. The Cardinals' decision to sign Cantrell is a hint that the team is confident in his health, but it's worth noting that the unique nature of this offseason allows clubs to announce signings prior to players officially passing a physical. The soon-to-be 26-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut.

      Alie-Cox is a unique weapon in Indianapolis' tight end corps, boasting a dominating 6-foot-5, 267-pound frame, and he appears to have earned a fan in Reich after spending his the last two seasons developing with the Colts. Jack Doyle and Trey Burton (hip) are early favorites to handle the majority of snaps at the position, but Alie-Cox's power and stature could conceivably lend him to red-zone utilization or even a handful of designed plays. After hauling in just 15 combined passes in his first two years, the 26-year-old could now be in line for a key role on offense if he can take another step forward in his development.

      4d ago

      Kittle's agent doesn't believe the existing tight end market is relevant to his client's next contract, ESPN.com reports.

      The agent, Jack Bechta, makes a reasonable point, considering Kittle's combination of receiving and blocking skill hasn't been seen in the NFL since Rob Gronkowski's prime. Travis Kelce is the closest thing to a fair comparison right now, but he signed a five-year, $46.8 million extension four years ago and has since become one of the top bargains in the league for his team. Entering the fourth and final season his his rookie contract, Kittle can make a case for the same type of money that's recently been paid to No. 1 WRs and top pass rushers -- around $20 million per year. The 49ers do have some leverage in the form of franchise tags, an option that likely would cost $10-11 million for 2021 and $12-13 million for 2022. Of course, it's also an option that likely would led to a holdout, and potentially hostility between player and team.

      While in-person workouts remain inconceivable for the time being, Koo is still going to have to prove himself during the lead-up to the regular season. The 25-year-old is currently the only kicker on the depth chart, but Quinn has remained adamant throughout the offseason that he is seeking competition at the position. Though Koo knocked down an impressive 23 of 26 field goals during his debut campaign in Atlanta, Quinn is wary of anointing his starter prematurely. Giorgio Tavecchio entered 2019 as the lone kicker on the roster, and proceeded to make just four of nine preseason field-goal attempts before being cut.

      Quarantine-related challenges have resulted in a slowdown in Vinatieri's rehab, to the point that it's possible the veteran kicker may not be ready by the time the NFL season gets underway. At the very least, the 47-year-old kicker appears unlikely to return to Indianapolis in 2020, considering the team extended Chase McLaughin and also offered undrafted rookie kicker Rodrigo Blankenship a sizable signing bonus.

      Hauschka will have some competition when the Bills are able to take the field ahead of the 2020 season after the team selected kicker Tyler Bass out of Georgia Southern in the sixth round of this weekend's draft.

      Hauschka struggled mightily for the first part of last season, but he finished strong by hitting his last 21 kicks (15 field-goal attempts and six extra-point attempts) if you include a fantastic performance in the wild-card loss to the Texans. Given his long track record in the NFL and standing with the Bills, he's almost certain to enter the 2020 season as the camp favorite. But the Buffalo brass is all about competition and isn't one to waste draft picks, so the fact that Bass is a sixth-rounder and not an undrafted free agent means Hauschka will have to earn his starting job in 2020, even if he'll enter camp as the incumbent.

      Seahawks' K.J. Wright: On track for Week 1
      3h ago

      Wright (shoulder) said Thursday that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason surgery and expects to be fully healthy for Week 1, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

      Wright handled 93 percent of snaps on defense for the Seahawks last season while starting a full 16-game slate. If he's indeed able to make a full recovery in time to kick off the 2020 campaign, he'll once again serve as a pillar of the team's linebacker corps. Coming off a career-high year in terms of tackles (132 total) and defended passes (11), Wright should once again be a valuable IDP asset entering his age-31 season.

      Demetri Goodson: Working in scouting
      1d ago

      The Packers promoted Goodson on Wednesday, hiring him as a college scout for the Midlands region.

      Goodson had his playing days come to an end following the 2018 season, when he joined Green Bay -- the team that drafted him in the sixth round in 2014 -- as a scouting intern in 2019. He apparently impressed in that position and will now receive a full-time role with the organization's front office. Over his five-year professional career, the cornerback saw action in parts of three seasons. He played 26 NFL games in total, recording 29 tackles and two pass breakups.

      Jernigan never officially passed a physical, which is why the deal was never processed. However, he has been cleared to play by Dr. Robert Watkins. The 27-year-old is expected to draw interest from several other NFL teams.
