1.Report: 49ers interested in WR Marcell A... (Rotoworld) According to NFL draft insider Tony Pauline, the 49ers are one of several teams high on Oklahoma State WR Marcell Ateman. Analysis: The Niners struggled in the red zone last season, and Ateman (6'4/220) would add size in scoring position. Per Pauline, Ateman is likely to improve his stock at the Scouting Combine with a forty time in the 4.45 range and 40-plus-inch vertical after training with ex-Olympian Michael Johnson before the draft.17 minutes
2.ASJ turns down Jets' 2-year, $8 million ... (Rotoworld) According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, free agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins recently turned down a two-year, $8 million offer from the Jets. Analysis: Per Vacchiano, the offer was "short on guarantees." Despite this, Vacchiano expects the two sides to eventually "talk again and work something out." Seferian-Jenkins set career-highs in catches (50) and receiving yards (357) this past season and is still just 25. A reunion makes sense for both sides.3 hours
3.McCarron in line for Glennon-type deal? (Rotoworld) ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects free agent A.J. McCarron to command "at least as much" as Mike Glennon on the open market. Analysis: Glennon signed for three years and $45 million with $18.5 million guaranteed last offseason and there's a good chance McCarron will surpass those figures in 2018. While McCarron will undoubtedly be on the Jets' radar—they nearly traded for him last offseason—Cimini believes bringing back a known commodity in Josh McCown would be a better use of the team's funds. It shouldn't take more than $12 million to re-sign McCown for 2018.5 hours
4.Vikings still the 'favorite' for Case Ke... (Rotoworld) According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, free agent Case Keenum "still seems to be the favorite" to return as the Vikings' starting quarterback in 2018. Analysis: Based on his comments, OC John DeFilippo seems to prefer an "athletic quarterback with ability to extend plays." Keenum and Kirk Cousins both fit that profile, though Keenum would obviously come at a much cheaper cost. According to Walters, it would be "out of character" for the Vikings to get into a bidding war and expects Cousins to sign wherever he can get the most money. Minn... (More)6 hours
5.Report: Vikings to 'consider' A.J McCarr... (Rotoworld) According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings are expected to "consider" A.J. McCarron in free agency. Analysis: McCarron was granted free agency last week after winning his grievance against the Bengals. He'd likely be a fallback for the Vikings, who are also pursuing Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum. McCarron, who is expected to command up to $10 million annually, is also drawing interest from the Broncos, Browns, Cardinals and Jets.6 hours
6.Browns expected to pursue Terrelle Pryor (Rotoworld) Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms free agent Terrelle Pryor will be "on the Browns' radar" this offseason. Analysis: Pryor had his best season with Cleveland in 2016, leading the Browns in both catches (77) and receiving yards (1,007). He didn't fare as well in Washington but was obviously hampered by injuries including an ankle issue that eventually required surgery. Pryor would add to a Cleveland receiving corps already featuring Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman.7 hours
7.Browns to persue Terrelle Pryor? (FFToday) I do believe the Browns will pursue Terrelle Pryor, and I think he would want to come back to Cleveland. I don't think he ever he really wanted to leave in the first place. Pryor will be a free agent in March, and will be on the Browns' radar. Analysis: Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Kabot believes Cleveland will take a run at the free agent wideout who busted out with the Redskins last season. Pryor dealt with an ankle injury that eventually required surgery in November. He reportedly is open to coming back to Cleveland so a reunion is likely.10 hours
8.Alex Tanney ready for offseason workouts (Rotoworld) Alex Tanney (foot) is expected to be ready for offseason workouts. Analysis: Tanney spent 2017 on IR after going down in the preseason finale. An exclusive rights free agent, Tanney should return to compete for a role behind Marcus Mariota.21 hours
9.Vikings hiring Todd Downing as assistant (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Vikings are expected to hire Todd Downing as a senior offensive assistant. Analysis: Downing was fired this offseason after a one-year stint as Oakland's offensive coordinator. He'll join John DeFilippo as an experienced playcaller to help replace Pat Shurmur. Downing is expected to focus on the Vikings' passing game.21 hours
10.Trent Williams likely to miss OTAs (Rotoworld) Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is expected to sit out OTAs. Analysis: Coach Jay Gruden doesn't expect Williams to be ready until late July. Williams played through knee issues for most of 2017 before getting surgery in December. The Redskins don’t have any concerns over his Week 1 status.21 hours
11.Titans RT Jack Conklin headed for PUP li... (Rotoworld) Titans RT Jack Conklin (knee) will open training camp on the PUP list. Analysis: Conklin is less than a month removed from ACL surgery. The Titans are hoping he can return for the start of the season, but he's a strong candidate for reserve/PUP, costing him at least the first six weeks. Tennessee should add veteran depth behind Conklin this offseason.22 hours
12.Derrick Johnson: Plans to play 'couple more years' (RotoWire) Johnson, who will become an unrestricted free agent March 14, said Wednesday in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio that he would like to play "a couple more years." Analysis: Though the Chiefs have already announced that they will void the linebacker's contract for 2018, Johnson isn't ready to cease pursuit of his first Super Bowl championship. The veteran noted that while he prefers to keep serving in a starting role regardless of where he lands this offseason, but indicated that his main focus is to win a championship. If that's the case, Johnson may have to settle for a decreased role if he joins a playoff-contending club, given ... (More)22 hours
13.Ryan Shazier: Working out daily (RotoWire) Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Thursday that Shazier, who underwent spinal stabilization surgery Dec. 14, has been working out at the team's facility on a daily basis, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "He does some physical workouts in the morning and he either sits in with the coaches or he sits in with [the front office]. He's learning some personnel stuff, just to keep him involved with us, then he goes and does his rehab at a rehab facility." Analysis: Shazier remains in the initial stages of his rehab from the scary spinal injury he suffered Dec. 4 against the Bengals and it has yet to be determin... (More)22 hours
14.Le'Veon Bell: Team prefers long-term deal over tag (RotoWire) Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Thursday that the team prefers to ink Bell to a long-term contract extension this offseason rather than applying the franchise tag on the running back, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. "We never will discount the use of the tag because that's collectively bargained," Colbert said Thursday. "But again, our goal is to have something done on a long-term basis. Analysis: Colbert's goal aligns with Bell's own wishes, as the soon-to-be 26-year-old said after the Steelers were eliminated from the playoffs Jan. 14 that he's eager to avoid a repeat of last offseason, when he sat out all of training...

15.Derek Rivers: Expected back for training camp (RotoWire) There hasn't been any indication that Rivers (knee) has experienced any snags in his recovery from August surgery to repair a torn ACL, putting him on track to enter the 2018 season at full strength, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: With Rivers, a 2017 third-round pick, having more than a calendar year to recover from a serious knee injury, it appears promising that he won't face many restrictions in training camp or the preseason. Given New England's need to add young athletes to the front seven, Rivers could carve out a decent-sized role in the team's defensive-line rotation next season.23 hours
16.Seattle not expected to re-sign Eddie La... (Rotoworld) The Seahawks don’t plan to re-sign free agent Eddie Lacy. Analysis: This is expected after Lacy finished the final weeks of 2017 as a healthy scratch. Coming off a down year with a history of conditioning issues, Lacy is going to struggle for guaranteed money this offseason. The Seahawks have a healthy Chris Carson returning and look likely to add a running back in the draft.23 hours
17.Cousins can prevent Redskins from taggin... (Rotoworld) The MMQB's Albert Breer reports free agent Kirk Cousins can file a grievance to block the Redskins from franchising him. Analysis: The Redskins want to tag-and-trade Cousins, but the CBA prevents them from tagging him without any plans to sign him. Washington would also need to commit at least $28.7 million in cap space to keep Cousins from free agency, putting them in a bad leverage spot. Cousins remains likely to hit the open market this offseason, where he'll become one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league. The Jets, Vikings, Broncos, Cardinals, and Jaguars have all been lin... (More)1 day
18.Ravens in talks with DE Brent Urban (Rotoworld) The Ravens have opened talks with free agent RE Brent Urban. Analysis: This was expected after John Harbaugh said he wanted to re-sign Urban last month. Urban is recovering from September Lisfranc surgery but is hoping to get cleared for OTAs. A one year prove-it deal would make sense for both sides.1 day
19.Ravens may ask Tony Jefferson to restruc... (Rotoworld) Ravens FS Tony Jefferson is a candidate to restructure his contract. Analysis: The Ravens need to clear cap space and can save $3.3 million from converting Jefferson's salary into a bonus. Joe Flacco ($8.25 million in savings), Jimmy Smith ($4 million), Marshal Yanda ($3 million) and Eric Weddle ($2.75 million) are also candidates to restructure.1 day
20.Retirement on Gronk's mind for 'some tim... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports Rob Gronkowski has been thinking about retirement for "quite some time." Analysis: Darlington went on to say it isn't just a reaction to the Super Bowl loss or Gronk's recent concussion and that he's been considering it "long before both instances." It still seems likely that Gronk will return for the 2018 season, but as more reports continue to emerge, it wouldn't be surprising to see him retire.1 day

22.Redskins | Junior Galette expects to be free agent (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette said he expects to end up testing free agency because there have been no talks of a new deal.1 day

27.Chiefs sign ex-Raiders CB Amerson for 1 ... (Rotoworld) Chiefs signed CB David Amerson to a one-year, $2.25 million contract. Analysis: Amerson can earn another $3.75 million through incentives. This, of course, is not the destination the Raiders would have picked. Amerson, 26, stays in the AFC West with Kansas City, which needs a starting right cornerback across from LCB Marcus Peters with Kendall Fuller in the slot. Amerson was a 2015 revelation in Oakland after a trade from Washington, then fizzled out immediately after signing a 2016 five-year, $34 million deal. On a one-year prove-it contract with the Chiefs, Amerson will have full m... (More)1 day
28.Chiefs | David Amerson signed by Chiefs (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent CB David Amerson (Raiders) signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Feb. 16. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.1 day
29.Packers looking to extend Rodgers after ... (Rotoworld) The Green Bay Press-Gazette expects the Packers to extend Aaron Rodgers after the draft. Analysis: The Packers have Rodgers signed through 2019 but want to extend him this offseason. Rodgers will likely wait to see what Kirk Cousins gets in free agency before signing, so it may be closer to training camp until anything gets done. Rodgers' next deal will make him the highest paid player in the league with an annual salary in the range of $30 million. There have been rumblings Green Bay could give Rodgers a fully guaranteed short-term extension.1 day
30.Nelson Agholor, Eagles to talk extension this offseason? (FantasyPros) Philadelphia Eagles beat writer Jimmy Kempski believes it will benefit the team to pick up WR Nelson Agholor's fifth-year option. Analysis: Although Agholor was an underproductive bust in his first two seasons in the NFL, the third-year wideout broke out in 2018, accumulating a 62-768-8 stat line while appearing in all 16 games for the first time in his career. Agholor, a big play threat, home run hitter any time he touches the ball, is due roughly $1.72 million in 2018 with the aforementioned club option for 2019, which the team will most likely exercise given his r... (More)1 day
31.Eagles plan to pick up Agholor's option (Rotoworld) The Eagles plan to pick up Nelson Agholor's fifth-year option. Analysis: Agholor shed his bust status in 2017, leading the Eagles in catches and setting career highs in yards (768) and touchdowns (8). The Eagles may look to extend him this offseason to lower his future cap hits. FanRag's Geoff Mosher expects Agholor to command $9 million-plus annually.1 day
32.Eagles likely to move on from Torrey Smi... (Rotoworld) The Eagles are expected to move on from Torrey Smith this offseason. Analysis: Smith signed a three-year deal last offseason but is owed a non-guaranteed salary in 2018. With Nelson Agholor having a breakout year and Mack Hollins cutting into Smith's snaps down the stretch, he's unlikely to be brought back. The Eagles can save $5 million from releasing Smith.1 day

35.Arik Armstead (hand) ready for OTAs (Rotoworld) 49ers DE Arik Armstead (hand) is on track for OTAs. Analysis: Armstead spent the final 10 games on IR, but his status for offseason workouts was never in doubt. Coming off a solid first year as a 4-3 end in DC Robert Saleh's scheme, Armstead should be counted on for heavy snaps in 2018.1 day
36.Buccaneers | Tampa talks with Brentson Buckner (USA Today Fantasy Sports) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have interviewed former Arizona Cardinals defensive line coach Brentson Buckner for their vacant defensive line coaching position.1 day
37.Report: ESPN pursuing Peyton Manning for... (Rotoworld) According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, ESPN is targeting Peyton Manning to replace Jon Gruden on Monday Night Football. Analysis: Per Marchand, ESPN is willing to "back up the truck" for Manning, though he's also being pursued by Fox as a color man for Thursday Night Football. Manning eventually sees himself in a John Elway role running football operations for an NFL team, but reportedly hasn't closed the door on broadcasting. ESPN is considering a complete overhaul of MNF and may even look to replace lead announcer Sean McDonough. Matt Hasselbeck served as a color analyst for ESPN's coverage of the Pro Bowl an...

43.NFL closes investigation on Marty Hurney (Rotoworld) The Panthers have reinstated interim GM Marty Hurney. Analysis: Hurney was placed on paid leave for two weeks while the league looked into claims of harassment made by his ex-wife. After finding no evidence of wrongdoing, the NFL has closed its investigation and Hurney will return to his role as the team's interim GM. The Panthers have interviewed Hurney, Lake Dawson, Martin Mayhew and Jimmy Raye III for the permanent GM position, but may wait for new ownership to be in place before announcing a hire. Hurney is considered the favorite.2 days

Analysis: Davis met with the Bills on Thursday and will continue his free agent tour with more visits next week. The two-time Pro Bowler struggled while battling injuries last year but wouldn't be a bad flyer for the Browns, who lead the league with over $110 million in cap space. Davis turns 30 in May.2 days
46.Panthers | No major changes for Cam Newton in 2018 (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton "doesn't need changing, he just needs to be the best version of Cam Newton," according to quarterbacks coach Scott Turner. "He's going to run - that's what makes him the dynamic player he is - but also making the throws in the pocket, going through his reads. All of those things come from experience, and he's played seven seasons now," Turner said.2 days
47.Mark Barron: Recovering from shoulder surgery (RotoWire) Barron recently underwent shoulder surgery, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

48.Kayvon Webster: Undergoes shoulder procedure (RotoWire) Webster had shoulder surgery recently, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Webster is already rehabbing a ruptured Achilles, which is why now was the right time for shoulder surgery.

55.Raiders | Amari Cooper never healthy in 2017? (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper battled an assortment of injuries all season, quarterback Derek Carr told Sirius XM Radio on Friday, Feb. 16. "He would never say it to you, but I'll say it to you to have his back. That man was out there giving anything he could and, honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had,' Carr said.2 days
56.Derek Carr: Amari Cooper played hurt in ... (Rotoworld) Speaking on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Derek Carr admitted Amari Cooper wasn't healthy in 2017. Analysis: Cooper did miss a pair of games late in the year due to a concussion and a high-ankle sprain, but even before that, he never looked right. "He would never say it to you but I'll say it to you to have his back," said Carr. "That man was out there giving anything he could and honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had." Though he inexplicably scored a career-high seven touchdowns, Cooper's 48 catches and 680 receiving yards were both career-low... (More)2 days
57.Panthers encouraging Cam Newton to run (Rotoworld) Panthers QBs coach Scott Turner said the team won't discourage Cam Newton from running the football. Analysis: Newton struggled as a passer in 2017, finishing among the league leaders in interceptions with 16. However, he led all quarterbacks with 754 rushing yards, which represented a new career-high for Newton. Previous coaching staffs have looked to limit Newton's rushing attempts to prevent injury, but instead, Turner has chosen to embrace that part of his game. "He's going to run," said Turner. "That's what makes him the dynamic player he is." Despite his infuria... (More)2 days

59.Saints | Drew Brees has hard deadline (USA Today Fantasy Sports) New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees would become an unrestricted free agent March 14 if he doesn't reach a new deal.

60.Kenny Vaccaro a speculated fit in Dallas after rumors surface (FantasyPros) After rumors have surfaced that Dallas had been interested in Vaccaro this past offseason, the speculation is he could be a fit for Dallas in 2018. Analysis: The New Orlean Saints will likely move on from Vaccaro with the emergence of Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell in 2017, so the "rumor" could hold true. His IDP owners shouldn't be concerned about Vaccaro where ever he lands. He'll demand a nice contract on the open market and would likely land as a starting "in the box" strong safety with whoever signs him.2 days
61.McCarron the top FA QB option for the Br... (Rotoworld) ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes A.J. McCarron "shoots to the top of he Browns' options" among free-agent quarterbacks. Analysis: The Browns will surely try to throw their hat into the ring for Kirk Cousins, but it seems highly doubtful Cousins will want to play there. McCarron obviously has a history with coach Hue Jackson after Jackson was his OC in Cincinnati and then tried to trade second- and third-round picks for McCarron at the trade deadline last year only to be undermined by Sashi Brown. New GM John Dorsey may have more of a say in things, and it's unclear... (More)2 days
62.Bears more likely than not to cut WR Whe... (Rotoworld) The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs hints it's more likely than not that the Bears release Markus Wheaton. Analysis: Biggs didn't come out and flat-out say it, but the Bears are not going to pay Wheaton $5 million after a disastrous first year with the team where he couldn't stay healthy. He was bad in Pittsburgh before that. GM Ryan Pace had a truly awful free-agent crop in 2017. Figuring out the receiver position is at the top of the to-do list for Pace and new coach Matt Nagy.2 days
63.Luke Kuechly recovering from shoulder surgery (FantasyPros) Kuechly recently underwent a procedure on his right shoulder, he skipped last month's Pro Bowl because of an unspecified injury. It's now obvious this upcoming procedure and injury may have been the reason. Analysis: With no timetable yet on when Kuechly will be able to return to action, his IDP owner should think if there are no setbacks he should be ready to go when camp rolls around this summer.2 days
64.SB52 hero Brandon Graham wants an extens... (Rotoworld) Eagles contract-year LE Brandon Graham wants an extension. Analysis: One of the heroes of the Super Bowl win, Graham has developed into one of the league's best 4-3 ends after a rough start to his career as a 2010 first-rounder. Since taking over as a starter three seasons ago, Graham has 21.5 sacks and has forced 16 career fumbles. Turning 30 in April, Graham was PFF's No. 4-ranked 4-3 end in 2017 after being No. 1 in 2016. Set to make just $6.5 million in 2018, Graham will likely command $14 million-plus per year on a new deal.2 days
65.Colts get Ray Ventrone as STs coordinato... (Rotoworld) Colts hired Patriots assistant special teams coach Raymond Ventrone as special teams coordinator. Analysis: Indy was at least able to lure one coach out of Foxboro.

Analysis: The relationship between the Steelers and Bell remains up in the air at the moment. Remember, while the team was preparing for the AFC Divisional Round game against the Jaguars, Bell was suggesting to the press that he will sit out in ... (More)2 days
67.49ers | More on Jimmy Garoppolo deal (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's deal will pay him $35 million in a signing bonus and roster bonus before the season. He can create $7.5 million in injury guarantees if he makes the AP All-NFL team in any year or he plays 50 percent of the snaps in the regular season, the 49ers make the NFC Championship game and he plays in 50 percent of the playoff snaps. Essentially, Garoppolo is signed for two years and $61 million and potentially three years and $86 million. The final two years could be a wash.2 days

70.AJ McCarron suddenly a free agent (Dynasty League Football) AJ McCarron has won his grievance against the NFL and will now be an unrestricted free agent. Analysis: McCarron won a previous grievance filed against the Bengals that gives him an accrued season for 2014. He now has the required four seasons accrued to make him an unrestricted free agent, rather than a restricted one. The distinction is a big one as McCarron will now hit the open market with teams able to sign with no compensation heading to Cincinnati. His name will likely be thrown around with the Jets, Broncos, Browns, Bills and many other quarterback needy teams. McCarron has sneaky QB2 value as a fu... (More)2 days
71.Colts | Andrew Luck excited about new offense (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck said he is excited about the offense head coach Frank Reich is bringing to the team. "That sounds great," Luck said. "I know all the best offenses that I've been a part of in my career we've not been static and we've attacked.

76.AJ McCarron to be a free agent (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron has won his grievance against the team which grants him his free agency eligibility. Analysis: McCarron, who filed a grievance against the team during his rookie season after the Bengals placed him on the non-football injury list (NFI) following a shoulder injury that occurred away from the team and kept him out for all but two games in 2014 which would have made him a restricted free agent this offseason, has won his grievance and will instead become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins on March 14. As a result, McCarron will reach t... (More)2 days
77.Harvey Langi: Expects to be ready for OTAs (RotoWire) Langi (neck/knee) is optimistic about his chances to return for OTAs, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. Analysis: Langi was placed on the Non-Football Injury list in October after he and his wife were injured in a car accident.
