  • L'Jarius Sneed KC CB
    Chiefs' L'Jarius Sneed: Franchise tag coming Monday
    5h ago

    The Chiefs will officially place their franchise tag on Sneed on Monday, Dianna Russini of The Athletic reports.

    Sneed is coming off a stellar 2023 campaign in which he recorded a career-high 14 passes defended to go along with 78 tackles. The cornerback's been expected to be franchise tagged by Kansas City for some time, as the team is also working toward an extension with star defensive tackle Chris Jones, per Russini. Such a deal would likely lessen the financial space that the team would be willing to dedicate toward Sneed, so it's also possible the team will attempt to trade him following this franchise tag.

  • Nyheim Hines BUF RB
    Bills' Nyheim Hines: Likely to be cut
    10h ago

    The Bills plan to release Hines (knee) during the upcoming week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Though Hines is expected to attain full medical clearance ahead of training camp while he nears the finish line in his recovery from the ACL reconstruction surgery he required last August, he'll have to find work elsewhere while Buffalo looks to utilize his 90-man offseason roster spot on another player. After being acquired from the Colts in November 2022 in exchange for running back Zack Moss and a 2023 fifth-round draft pick, Hines appeared in just seven games for Buffalo, carrying 18 times for 36 yards and a touchdown to go with 25 catches for 188 yards while also contributing as a punt returner. If teams are satisfied with where Hines stands in his ongoing recovery from knee surgery, he could have an opportunity to battle for a third-down role out of the backfield at his next stop.

  • Blake Corum 2005 RB
    Blake Corum: Checks boxes at 2024 Combine
    1d ago

    Corum ran a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash and added a 35.5-inch vertical jump during his workout at the 2024 NFL Combine.

    The Michigan product wasn't expected to test as a superior athlete based on his tape, but his workout won't cause his stock to slip much by any means. He placed 12th out of 21 running backs in the 40 while having a dense, 5-foot-8, 205-pound frame. His agility proved to be solid as well considering his cone (6.82) and shuttle times (4.12) were among the best among his position group. His strength was on display with a running back-leading 27 reps on the bench, too. Corum had gaudy production over his final three seasons at Michigan with 56 rushing touchdowns in that span, highlighted by 27 in his senior season. He doesn't have any standout traits but is a solid all-around runner who can contribute on all three downs. Corum can handle a heavy workload and pick up the blitz, and his pass-catching numbers (51 catches, 64 targets, 338 yards) check out as workable for the next level. He may no longer be the consensus No.1 running back in the class after this weekend as other backs did manage to post impressive workouts, but Corum should be among the first three backs taken in April.

    Giants' Mark Glowinski: Likely to be let go

    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.

    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.

  • Mason Rudolph PIT QB
    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Wanted back in Pittsburgh
    3d ago

    GM Omar Khan said Thursday that Rudolph knows the Steelers want to re-sign him, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Kaboly and Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (via 93.7 The Fan) both have suggested that the Steelers prefer to re-sign Rudolph and move forward with him and Kenny Pickett as the quarterbacks for 2024, though Khan didn't rule out the possibility of acquiring a veteran starter or drafting a QB. It sounds like Rudolph would get the chance to compete for a starting job if he re-signs, as Khan said Thursday that Picket will be subject to competition even though the Steelers believe in him. The team is sending mixed signals, but it does at least seem clear that Rudolph and the Steelers have already discussed a contract extension. The 28-year-old replaced an injured Pickett late last season and then kept the starting job even after Pickett was healthy, leading Pittsburgh to three straight wins at the end of the regular season before falling to the Bills in the first round of the playoffs.

    The Cowboys will pick up Lance's $4.25 million roster bonus for the 2024 season, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Lance didn't play a snap for the Cowboys in 2023 after he was traded by the 49ers late in training camp. However, Dallas is optimistic about the growth he made and reportedly has not considered cutting him. Unsurprisingly, the team will not pick up Lance's fifth-year option, which would have been worth $22.4 million. In the best-case scenario, he'll be the Cowboys' backup quarterback entering 2024.

    The Bengals tendered an offer Wednesday to Browning, an exclusive rights free agent.

    Undrafted out of Washington in 2019, Browning made the first nine appearances of his NFL career last season, starting seven games following Joe Burrow's season-ending injury. Browning had the Bengals in playoff contention right up until the end of the season and finished with a league-best 70.4 percent completion rate for 1,936 yards, 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions while adding 127 yards and three scores on the ground. He's the favorite to open 2024 as Burrow's top backup.

    Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Optimism about extension
    4d ago

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Tuesday that he "absolutely" wants Tagovailoa to sign a contract extension this offseason, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

    The lefty quarterback is set to play out the 2024 season under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, after leading the league in yards per attempt in 2022 (8.9) and total passing yards in 2023 (4,624). Tagovailoa hasn't quite progressed to fantasy stardom despite his success, as he doesn't offer much in the way of rushing production, missed four games in 2022 and then saw Miami running backs rush for 27 of the team's 57 offensive touchdowns in 2023. He still has a path to QB1 value -- at least on the low end -- while throwing passes to elite receiving talents in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle in one of the NFL's best-designed offenses. Early reports suggest both the Dolphins and Tagovailoa expect an extension to get done this offseason.

  • Zach Wilson NYJ QB
    Jets' Zach Wilson: Gets green light to pursue trade
    4d ago

    General manager Joe Douglas said Wednesday that Wilson (concussion) has been given permission to seek a trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Wilson ended the 2023 season on injured reserve while recovering from concussion symptoms, which cost him the Jets' final three games. The 2021 second overall pick's time being up in New York almost looks inevitable at this point, especially after he was moved back and forth between the starting lineup and bench throughout the 2023 campaign. If a trade partner doesn't emerge for Wilson, the Jets could opt to waive him rather than keeping him in the fold at a cap hit of $11.18 million for 2024. In any case, the Jets seem likely to prioritize an upgrade at the backup quarterback spot behind Aaron Rodgers (Achilles), with Trevor Siemian and Brett Rypien being the other signal-callers on the roster.

    Vikings' Ty Chandler: Top running back for now
    3d ago

    Chandler is projected to serve as the Vikings' top running back after Alexander Mattison was released Thursday, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Mattison accounted for 180 carries in 2023, while Chandler played a complementary role with 102. Chandler showed flashes of brilliance with the ball in his hands, tallying three rushes of over 20 yards while averaging 4.5 yards per carry. For now, it appears that Chandler will be set for a bigger role in 2024, though the Vikings will almost certainly add to their backfield either through the draft or free agency.

    Mattison took over as the primary running back in Minnesota after Dalvin Cook was released last offseason. He had a good season from a volume perspective, logging a career-best 180 carries while also racking up 30 receptions. However, Mattison lacked explosiveness, which was evident from the fact that he had just one rush over 20 yards. He'll likely be looking for a short-term deal as a complementary rusher this offseason.

  • Gus Edwards BAL RB
    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Discussing deal with Ravens
    3d ago

    GM Eric DeCosta said Tuesday that the Ravens and Edwards are already discussing a new contract, Clifton Brown and Ryan Mink of the team's official website report.

    Edwards can become a free agent but might end up re-signing before that happens. If so, it wouldn't necessarily prevent the Ravens from signing one of the big-name RBs available in free agency, though it would at least marginally decrease the odds of that happening. The team also has Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell (torn ACL) under contract for 2024, though the former mostly played special teams before last season and the latter might not be ready for Week 1. DeCosta also suggested that he'd still have interest in re-signing J.K. Dobbins, who is rehabbing an Achilles' tear after playing only nine games combined the past three seasons.

  • J.K. Dobbins BAL RB
    Ravens' J.K. Dobbins: Posts rehab videos
    3d ago

    Dobbins (Achilles) posted a video Thursday that shows him running on turf and then a treadmill.

    Meanwhile, GM Eric DeCosta told reporters Tuesday that the Ravens plan to discuss new contracts with both Dobbins and Gus Edwards. The former is still rehabbing the Achilles' tear that ended his 2023 campaign after Week 1, while the latter is nearly four years older but just set career highs for carries (198), rushing yards (810) and rushing TDs (13). Edwards also averaged a career low 4.1 YPC, to be fair, after running for 5.0 or better in each of his previous NFL seasons. The rumor mill connects Baltimore with big-name RBs scheduled for agency like Derrick Henry and Saquon Barkley, but DeCosta made sure to mention Dobbins, Edwards, Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell (torn ACL), with the latter two still under contract in Baltimore. Re-signing Dobbins or Edwards wouldn't necessarily preclude adding a bigger name, particularly in Dobbins' case given the poor track record of RBs coming back from Achilles injuries and the accompanying likelihood he'll have to settle for a contract without much guaranteed money. The 2020 second-round pick has played nine games since his rookie season, losing all of 2021 to an ACL tear and half of 2022 to ensuing issues with the same knee.

    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.

    Virgil had to spend the entirety of last season on IR after a 2022 rookie campaign that saw him appear in nine games and record two catches on five targets for 75 yards, while also seeing work in the return game on special teams. According to Tomasson, the 25-year-old is eagerly awaiting spring drills in April, where he'll work to start carving out a regular role for himself in Denver.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. BAL WR
    Ravens' Odell Beckham: Wanted back in Baltimore
    3d ago

    Coach John Harbaugh and GM Eric DeCosta both suggested this week that they'd like Beckham to re-sign with the Ravens, Clifton Brown and Ryan Mink of the team's official website report. "[Beckham]'s become a great friend of mine and a friend to the Ravens," DeCosta said Tuesday. "I think we'll just kind of assess and see what happens over the next couple of weeks."

    Beckham presumably would have to accept a major pay cut after signing a one-year, $15 million contract last offseason. He made some big plays but was never a full-time player after the first few games, ultimately finishing with 35 catches for 565 yards and three TDs in the regular season. Harbaugh has already mentioned viewing Rashod Bateman as a starter for 2024, in which Beckham would be coming back as the third/fourth wide receiver. The team recently re-signed Nelson Agholor, ensuring they'll have a veteran presence behind Bateman and Zay Flowers even if Beckham ends up signing elsewhere.

"He's an unprecedented player. We want him to be a Buc for life. We're working towards that," general manager Jason Licht said Tuesday.

    Licht admitted the team would probably have to "strain a little bit" to reach a deal that's palatable for Evans, who is coming off his 10th consecutive 1,000-yard season. Evans also recorded 13 touchdowns in 2023 -- tying for the league lead.

    Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Wednesday that Pittman will be on the team's roster for the upcoming season, whether via contract extension or the franchise tag, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Pittman is approaching free agency for the first time in his NFL career, but the Colts aren't planning on giving him a chance to explore the open market. Indianapolis has until March 5 to decide whether to place the franchise tag on Pittman, which would result in him taking home a salary of approximately $21.8 million for 2024. However, the team seemingly prefers to work out a longer-term extension with Pittman, provided the two sides can come to an agreement. The Colts haven't used the franchise tag since 2013, and Pittman himself has said he would prefer a multi-year contract, per Stephen Holder of ESPN.com.

    Dolphins' Jaylen Waddle: Wanted long term in Miami

    General manager Chris Grier said Wednesday that the Dolphins have "no thoughts of trading [Waddle]," Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.

    Grier dismissed recent rumors of Waddle being a trade candidate, saying "he'll be around here for a long time." Teammate Tyreek Hill recently weighed in on social media to dispel talk about such a trade, as did Waddle himself, so it's unsurprising to see the Dolphins' brass take a similar stance. The third-year pro recently became the first wideout in Miami's history to record three straight 1,000-yard seasons, posting a 72-1,014-4 receiving line across 14 regular-season games in 2023. Waddle has one more year on his rookie deal, plus a potential fifth-year option, giving the Dolphins plenty of time to negotiate a long-term contract.

    Giants' Darren Waller: Not certain to return after all
    2d 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.

    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.

    Giants' Darren Waller: Expected back in New York for 2024
    2d ago

    Waller thought about retiring earlier this offseason, but he'll continue playing football and isn't expected to be a cap casualty, Paul Schwartz and Ryan Dunleavy of the NY Post report.

    A midseason hamstring injury cost Waller five games in 2023, his first year with the Giants and third straight season missing at least five contests. He has three years remaining on his contract but no salary guarantees, with the Giants able to add around $11.6 million in 2024 cap space by declaring the tight end as a post-June 1 cut (or waiting until June to trade him). It sounds like player and team want to give things another shot in New York, hoping Waller can stay relatively healthy for the first time since 2020 even though he'll turn 32 in September. He was on pace to catch 85 passes for 923 yards through seven games in 2023 before the hamstring injury derailed his season Week 8. Waller missed the next five games and then played less than two-thirds of snaps on offense in each of the final four weeks of the season.

    Rams general manager Les Snead confirmed Wednesday that Higbee (knee) has had surgery to address a torn ACL and MCL, but a timetable for his return is still uncertain, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Higbee suffered ligament damage to his right knee during the Rams' wild-card playoff loss to the Lions on Jan. 14, after taking a low hit on the offense's final drive. The timing of his injury puts his status for Week 1 of the 2024 season in serious doubt, and likewise makes him an unlikely candidate to be cleared for the start of training camp in late July. Behind the 31-year-old veteran on the depth chart are Davis Allen, Hunter Long (knee) and Brycen Hopkins, all of whom now look like candidates to begin the 2024 season in expanded roles, barring other additions to the tight-end room.

In his lone campaign with Atlanta, the 28-year-old hauled in 50 of his 70 targets for a career-high 582 yards and three TDs in 17 games, while logging action on 58 percent of the team's offensive snaps in 2023. In the wake of Smith's looming departure, Kyle Pitts remains atop the Falcons' tight end depth chart, with John FitzPatrick and Tucker Fisk also under contract for the 2024 season.

    Smith performed adequately for the Falcons in his debut season with the team, as in 2023 he secured 50 of 70 targets for 582 yards and three touchdowns across 17 regular-season appearances. Nonetheless, entering his age-29 season, Smith carried a non-guaranteed salary of $6.5 million, with just $2.5 million in dead money, making his release a relatively easy decision. Though Smith was the Falcons' fourth-leading receiver in 2023, that came in part due to former head coach Arthur Smith's tight-end heavy deployment, something that seems likely to change under new offensive coordinator Zac Robinson. Kyle Pitts now looks primed to enter the 2024 campaign as the clear top option leading Atlanta's TE depth chart.

    Bass made 24 out of 29 field-goal attempts and 49 of 50 extra-point tries in 17 regular-season games in 2023.

    It's the postseason that really leaves a pimple on Bass's season, as he made just two of five field-goal attempts over two playoff games, including a 44-yarder that would have tied the divisional-round loss to the Chiefs with 1:43 left to play. The 121 points for Bass in the regular season represented his worst total in four NFL campaigns and put him in the 15th spot among all kickers, disappointing considering the Bills were sixth in the NFL in points scored.

    Dicker converted 31 of his 33 field-goal attempts and all 35 of his extra-point attempts over 17 games for the Chargers during the regular season.

    After years of poor kicking production, the Chargers appear to have finally struck gold in the form of Dicker, who has missed just three of his field-goal attempts dating back to his 2022 rookie season. He seemed to quell any concerns about long-distance kicks, as the 23-year-old made seven from 50-plus yards out after failing to make his lone attempt from that range in 2022. The introduction of head coach Jim Harbaugh could add value to Dicker's fantasy prospects next season, considering the aggressive fourth-down tendencies that Brandon Staley displayed during his tenure will likely be tossed to the wayside in favor of a more conventional approach.

    Once Detroit lost patience with Riley Patterson after missing two PATs in three games, Badgley was brought in with mixed results. Not only did he miss two PATs in his four regular-season games, the strong-legged kicker only converted one field goal from over 40 yards over this stretch with just one more from at least this range over three postseason games.

If McManus ultimately leaves for another opportunity, Patterson would become the team's only player at the position. The 24-year-old converted 16 of 18 field-goal attempts across 15 games this season between the Lions (13) and Browns (two), while also nailing 35 of 37 extra points.

    Browns' Dustin Hopkins: Injury lingers over offseason
    29d ago

    Hopkins (hamstring) finished the season with 123 points over 15 games. He was successful on 33 of 36 field-goal attempts and 24 of 26 extra-point kicks.

    Hopkins was a savior to Cleveland's kicking troubles over the previous two seasons and led the NFL in field-goals made at the time of his injury. The hamstring remains a concern entering the offseason. He has one year left on his contract and should return to the Browns if he's ready to compete by training camp.

    Chiefs' L'Jarius Sneed: Franchise tag coming Monday
    5h ago

    The Chiefs will officially place their franchise tag on Sneed on Monday, Dianna Russini of The Athletic reports.

    Sneed is coming off a stellar 2023 campaign in which he recorded a career-high 14 passes defended to go along with 78 tackles. The cornerback's been expected to be franchise tagged by Kansas City for some time, as the team is also working toward an extension with star defensive tackle Chris Jones, per Russini. Such a deal would likely lessen the financial space that the team would be willing to dedicate toward Sneed, so it's also possible the team will attempt to trade him following this franchise tag.

    J.C. Jackson: Released by New England
    2d 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.

    Chiefs' Chris Jones: Chiefs optimistic for new contract
    2d ago

    Kansas City has felt "growing optimism" about re-signing Jones to a new contract before free agency per a league source, Nate Taylor and Dianna Russini of The Athletic report.

    The Chiefs are hoping to have Jones officially re-signed prior to March 11, when free agents become eligible to begin negotiations with other teams around the league. The standout pass rusher is reportedly seeking a contract that will pay him in the ballpark of $30 million annually, which would put him behind Nick Bosa and Aaron Donald. The All-Pro defensive lineman has compiled 25.5 sacks across the last two seasons, and he made game-changing plays in each of Kansas City's last two Super Bowl victories, making his value to the team undeniable. A recent restructure would allow the Chiefs to place the franchise tag on Jones if desirable, but L'Jarius Sneed seems like a likelier candidate for such a transaction.

    Kevin Byard: Being released by Eagles
    3d ago

    Philadelphia plans to release Byard in a move that frees up over $13 million in cap space, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Byard joined the Eagles midway through the 2023 season via trade from the Titans, and he recorded a total career-high 122 tackles between the two teams. The veteran safety is still playing at an excellent level, but the cap savings made possible by his release for Philadelphia makes the move a no-brainer for the team. Byard should have no issue finding a starting role elsewhere in the league.

    Marcus Maye: Cut loose by Saints
    3d ago

    The Saints intend to release Maye (shoulder) at the start of the new league year, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Maye has struggled with injuries for the last three seasons -- two of which came with New Orleans -- during which he's combined to play in only 23 games. The move could save the Saints up to $7.2 million in cap space. Meanwhile, Maye will likely have to settle for a short-term deal in the hopes of proving he can stay on the field.

    Saints' Cameron Jordan: Restructures contract
    3d ago

    Jordan restructured his contract with the Saints on Thursday, which will save the team more than $9 million against the cap this season, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Details of Jordan's adjusted contract are still unknown, according to Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football. However, it appears he'll still get his guaranteed $13 million this season while deferring some non-guaranteed money toward next year. The veteran lineman played a career-low 731 defensive snaps in 2023, which also saw him compile a career-low 43 tackles and just two sacks.
