1.Jonathan Stewart a cut candidate (Dynasty League Football) Jonathan Stewart is reportedly a candidate to be released by Carolina. Analysis: This should come as no surprise as the aging Stewart posted a career low in yards per carry average. The Panthers will likely be in the market for a new lead runner in the 2018 NFL Draft to pair with Christian McCaffrey. Stewart will likely resurface as a platoon back somewhere but the days of him being relevant in dynasty leagues could be over. He'll go down as one of the most disappointing players in recent memory as a talented back who just never took full ad... (More)3 minutes
2.Broncos | Trevor Siemian could be traded (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is expected to be on the trading block this offseason as the Broncos look to add at the position via free agency and/or the draft.5 minutes
3.Donte Moncrief to return to the Colts? (FantasyPros) Indianapolis Colts beat writer Mike Chappell believes that there is a "50-50" chance WR Donte Moncrief re-signs with the team this offseason. Analysis: Moncrief, 24, has been inconsistent in his four-year NFL career. After the first two seasons of his career in which he appeared in all 16 games, Moncrief has dealt with injuries in each of the past two seasons, only playing in 21 of a possible 32 games. However, When healthy, Moncrief is a threat to find the end zone, especially when Andrew Luck is on the field, scoring 15 of his 18 career TDs in the past three seaso... (More)15 minutes
4.Frank Gore's time in Indy almost up? (FantasyPros) Indianapolis Colts beat writer Mike Chappell doesn't expect the team to re-sign impending free-agent RB Frank Gore this offseason. Analysis: At one time Gore saw an opportunity to continue his career and compete for a championship with the Colts. However, three years later, the Colts have been one of the most disappointing teams in the league, primarily due to the lingering shoulder injury carried by Andrew Luck. And although Luck is expected to return in 2018, the Colts are clearly in a rebuild, which means Gore, who will turn 35 in May, should be on his way out, mov... (More)22 minutes
5.Ryan Succop, Titans agree to new deal (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting the Tennessee Titans and K Ryan Succop have agreed to a five-year, $20 million contract with $7.5millio in guaranteed money on Tuesday. Analysis: Succop has been one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL in his career, especially since joining the Titans back in 2014. Finishing 2017 as the K8 with 156 fantasy points and a 9.8 FPPG average, Succop should be a value pick at the tail end of drafts for 2018. The Titans are one of the best teams inside the red zone in the league, which translates to more opportunities for Succop... (More)29 minutes
6.Trevor Siemian on the trading block? (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian could be available via trade this offseason. Analysis: Shocker here right? With all of the question marks that surround the Broncos this offseason, one thing appears certain -- their 2018 starting QB is not on their roster. In fact, they've been linked to Kirk Cousins. However, even if the Broncos fail to land Cousins, they will be in the market for a reliable signal caller, which means Siemian is likely on his way out over a player like Paxton Lynch, who was a first-round draft pick two ye... (More)35 minutes
7.Colts | Frank Gore unlikely to be re-signed (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is not expected to be re-signed. Gore will turn 35 years old this offseason but still wants to play. He is just 75 yards shy of reaching fourth on the NFL's all-time rushing list.36 minutes
8.Andrew Luck to avoid another surgery? (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has resumed throwing. Analysis: Although Luck has resumed throwing, he's not throwing a football. In fact, per Rapoport, he's throwing weighted balls that are heavier than a football, which bodes well for his recovery outlook. How well? Luck told reporters Tuesday that he will avoid another shoulder surgery, which puts him on track to play in 2018, barring unforeseen circumstances. While there are no guarantees on his recovery, the current news is positive. From a fantasy perspective, I'd buy l... (More)41 minutes
9.Alshon Jeffery undergoes surgery (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday. Analysis: Rapoport also stated that Jeffery underwent a surgery to repair a rotator cuff injury suffered at some point last preseason -- he ultimately played through the ailment for the duration of the 2017 campaign plus the postseason. Per reports via Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the "goal" for Jeffery's recovery is for him to be ready for the 2018 season opener, though optimism suggests that a preseason return is feasible barring... (More)49 minutes
10.Jags not expected to re-sign CB Aaron Co... (Rotoworld) Beat writer Hays Carlyon doesn't expect the Jaguars to be able to re-sign impending free agent CB Aaron Colvin. Analysis: Outside CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye get all the love in Jacksonville, but Colvin is one of the best slot corners in the game and is/was a big part of the Jaguars' defense. Per Pro Football Focus, Colvin didn't allow a single touchdown in his coverage, and his 0.76 yards per snap in coverage was third-best among all slot corners. Colvin, 26, is one of the top corners set to hit the market.55 minutes
11.Eagles | Alshon Jeffery could be out a while (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's (shoulder) surgery for his torn right rotator cuff could keep him sidelined until the preseason. As reported earlier, Jeffery suffered the injury last offseason, but the pain and discomfort were not so severe to keep Jeffery from playing.58 minutes
12.Report: Alshon Jeffery may miss training... (Rotoworld) The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports "the goal" is for Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, though he "could" be ready during the preseason.1 hour
13.Colts unlikely to re-sign 34-year-old RB... (Rotoworld) CBS Indianapolis' Mike Chappell doesn't expect the Colts to re-sign impending free agent Frank Gore. Analysis: Gore turns 35 in May and is unlikely to have much of a market. He's clearly on the 18th hole of his decorated career and is trying to hang on for a chance at a Super Bowl. That's not going to happen in Indianapolis right now. Chappell guesses Gore's hometown Dolphins could be interested in him. The Colts are fully expected to use a high pick -- possibly No. 3 overall -- on a running back.1 hour
14.Raiders | Vontae Davis visiting Raiders (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent CB Vontae Davis (Colts) is meeting with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, Feb. 21, according to a source.1 hour
15.Raiders up next on CB Vontae Davis' FA t... (Rotoworld) Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Raiders on Wednesday. Analysis: Davis has visited the Bills, Browns, and 49ers in the last week and is now onto Oakland. The 30-year-old (in May) is eligible to sign whenever he pleases and should be making a decision in the next two or three weeks before free agency opens on March 14. The Raiders already released CB David Amerson earlier this month and likely will do the same with CB Sean Smith sooner than later.1 hour
16.Dolphins expected to keep C Mike Pouncey (Rotoworld) The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports C Mike Pouncey is expected back with the Dolphins in 2018. Analysis: Pouncey has chronically bad hips but started all 16 games in 2017 for the first time since 2012. However, he turns 29 this summer, took the most penalties among all centers last year, and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 34 center out of 38 qualifiers. Perhaps he isn't the elite talent he once was, but Miami already has offensive-line woes at both guard spots. Creating another one probably isn't in the best interest. Pouncey has a $9 million cap hit in 2018.2 hours
17.Buccaneers | Tampa Bay hires Stephen Nicholas (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Former Atlanta Falcons LB Stephen Nicholas was hired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wednesday, Feb. 21, as a defensive quality control coach.2 hours
18.Cowboys | Ken Amato joins Cowboys (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Former Tennessee Titans LS Ken Amato has been hired as a defensive assistant by the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday, Feb. 21. Amato worked with the Dallas special teams last year as part of a minority coaching fellowship program.2 hours
19.Alshon Jeffery: Status uncertain for training camp (RotoWire) Jeffery (shoulder), who underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn right rotator cuff, is uncertain to be available for the start of training camp and could miss time during the preseason, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Analysis: The Eagles should shed more light on the status of Jeffery's rehab from the procedure when the team reconvenes for Organized Team Activities in April. Though it's likely the wideout won't be in attendance for the offseason program and could be sidelined when training camp opens, the expectation remains that he'll be back to full strength by the start of the regular season. Despite playing... (More)2 hours
20.Jude Adjei-Barimah: Gets clean bill of health (RotoWire) Adeji-Barimah (knee) was cleared by his surgeon Tuesday to return to full football activities, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. The cornerback isn't expected to face any limitations during the Buccaneers' offseason program. Analysis: Adjei-Barimah suffered a patellar fracture in his right knee in training camp last August that ultimately required surgery, ending his 2017 season before it even began. The cornerback was initially waived/injured after being diagnosed with the knee issue, but later reverted to the Buccaneers' injured reserve list upon going unclaimed by the league's other 31 teams. A healthy Adjei-Barimah will be a restri... (More)3 hours
21.Crockett Gillmore: Transitioning to offensive line (RotoWire) Gillmore (knee), who has played tight end since entering the NFL in 2014, is in the process of transitioning to the offensive line, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. Analysis: Gillmore, who has been limited to just 17 appearances over his past three seasons with the Ravens, was sidelined all of last season while recovering from surgery to address an MCL injury, which he sustained early in training camp. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds last season, the 26-year-old has reportedly added considerable bulk to help with the transition. In addition, Gillmore has spent his offseason training with former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentle... (More)3 hours
22.Alshon Jeffery: Undergoes surgery for torn rotator cuff (RotoWire) Jeffery underwent successful surgery Wednesday to address a torn rotator cuff, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Jeffery suffered the shoulder injury during training camp, but proceeded to play through the issue for all 16 of the Eagles' regular-season contests, as well as the team's three postseason bouts. Though less than 100 percent healthy, Jeffery's productivity didn't seem to be impacted by the injury, as he quickly established a strong rapport with starting quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) in the regular season and seemed to get comfortable with replacement signal caller Nick Foles during the playoffs, ultimately fi... (More)3 hours
23.Former TE Crockett Gillmore moving to ta... (Rotoworld) Impending free agent TE Crockett Gillmore is changing positions to offensive tackle. Analysis: The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports Gillmore has been training with former NFL center LeCharles Bentley, who runs a highly-regarded OL training academy. Gillmore stood a mountainous 6'6/260 coming out of Colorado State in 2014. He has missed 31 games to injury over the last three seasons. Gillmore was dubbed a rock-solid solid blocking tight end entering the NFL.3 hours
24.Buccaneers | Jude Adjei-Barimah cleared (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent CB Jude Adjei-Barimah (knee) was medically cleared to resume football activities Tuesday, Feb. 20.3 hours
25.Giants re-sign OG John Greco (Rotoworld) Giants re-signed OG John Greco. Analysis: Released by the Browns at final cuts last summer, Greco spent time with the Saints and Giants last season, appearing in three games for the G-Men. Turning 33 next month, Greco was once a quality starter in Cleveland, but injuries hit him in 2016. He's made 70 career starts and is at least a solid reserve.4 hours
26.Alshon Jeffery has torn rotator cuff rep... (Rotoworld) Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder on Wednesday. Analysis: According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jeffery tore the rotator cuff in training camp last summer and played through it all the way through the Super Bowl. If true, that's incredibly impressive. Jeffery did miss time at the beginning of August with a shoulder injury but was never listed on the injury report with it during the season. Rotator cuff surgeries come with lengthy recovery timetables, so this could put Jeffery behind the eight ball at the start of camp this summer. He's ... (More)4 hours
27.Alshon Jeffery has surgery on torn rotator cuff (FFToday) #Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had successful surgery this morning on a torn rotator cuff, sources say. He suffered it in training camp and played through it, somehow, on the way to a Super Bowl. Analysis: Jeffery reportedly suffered the injury during training camp last season and while he was limited in camp with a "shoulder" injury it wasn't thought to be as severe a torn rotator cuff. Jeffery re-signed with the Eagles this past December a deal that will keep him an Eagles through the 2021 season.4 hours
28.Eagles | Alshon Jeffery has surgery (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff Wednesday, Feb. 21. He suffered the injury in training camp and played through it all season.4 hours
29.Hurney officially named Panthers' GM...a... (Rotoworld) Panthers hired interim GM Marty Hurney as general manager. Analysis: Hurney was the Panthers' GM from 2002-2012 before getting canned in favor of Dave Gettleman. The team reversed the move last offseason, firing Gettleman and tabbing Hurney as the interim GM for the 2017 season. All along, Hurney was expected to get the full-time gig, though he had to clear a harassment accusation from his ex-wife earlier this month. Carolina now needs to get an owner in place. Hedge fund manager David Tepper is considered the frontrunner.4 hours
30.Adam Vinatieri: Set to re-sign with Indianapolis (RotoWire) Vinatieri plans to re-sign with the Colts on a one-year contract, which is expected to be finalized Thursday, Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports. Analysis: A reunion with Vinatieri and the Colts always looked to be in the cards after the 45-year-old turned in another effective campaign in 2017 while remaining adamant at various points throughout the season that he intended to keep his career going in 2018. Though a weak Colts offense limited Vinatieri to just 109 points last season -- his second-lowest total of the past six seasons -- his scoring output could recover with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) o... (More)4 hours
31.Andrew Luck: Throwing weighted balls rather than football (RotoWire) Updating a previous report, Luck (shoulder) has resumed throwing weighted balls rather than a football, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Considering that the weighted balls are heavier than the football, Luck's announcement Tuesday that he has ruled out the possibility of a second surgery on his throwing shoulder seems to have some merit. Now throwing for the first time since being shut down in late October, Luck's progress will likely be monitored extra carefully as the Colts aim to get him ready for the 2018 campaign after he was sidelined for all of last season. According to Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star, Luck, ... (More)4 hours
32.Free agent K Folk had knee surgery last ... (Rotoworld) Free agent K Nick Folk (knee) has been medically cleared for football activities. Analysis: Folk was a disaster with the Bucs from Weeks 1-5 last season before getting released and then undergoing knee surgery. Folk is still young for a kicker at 33 years old and could get a chance to compete in someone's camp this summer.5 hours
33.Report: Colts, K Vinatieri closing in on... (Rotoworld) NBC Indianapolis' Bob Kravitz reports the Colts and impending free agent K Adam Vinatieri are "closing in" on a one-year contract. Analysis: The 45-year-old said after the season he intended to keep playing, and it always made sense for both sides to hammer out a new deal. Vinatieri went 29-of-34 on field goals last season and was 11-of-13 from 40-plus yards out.5 hours
34.Bears will 'probably' cut FA bust WR Whe... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeff Dickerson admits the Bears will "probably" release WR Markus Wheaton. Analysis: The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs said the same thing last week, and it's actually amazing the beat writers aren't considering it a given that it will happen. Wheaton was an utter bust as a free-agent signing last offseason, catching three passes in 11 games. He was one of GM Ryan Pace's many whiffs in free agency. There's no way Pace can justify paying Wheaton $5 million in 2018.5 hours
35.Colts | Adam Vinatieri nearing deal with Colts (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri is close to finalizing a deal to re-sign with the Colts, and it's expected to be done Thursday, Feb. 22.5 hours
36.OLB McPhee likely will have to take pay ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeff Dickerson believes Bears OLB Pernell McPhee will have to take a pay cut to return in 2018.5 hours
37.Jonathan Stewart a cut candidate for Pan... (Rotoworld) ESPN's David Newton "could see" the Panthers releasing Jonathan Stewart. Analysis: Stewart is entering the final year of his contract and is due a $1.9 million salary and $1.6 million roster bonus. Cutting him would save the Panthers over $3.7 million against the cap. Stewart turns 31 next month and averaged a career-worst 3.5 YPC last year despite running behind one of the league's better offensive lines. Stewart had two 100-yard rushing games in 2017 and failed to top 70 yards in the 14 others. Carolina could/should go younger at the position.5 hours
38.Bucs CB Jude Adjei-Barimah (knee) cleare... (Rotoworld) Bucs CB Jude Adjei-Barimah (knee) has been medically cleared for football activities. Analysis: Adjei-Barimah missed all of last season on I.R. with a fractured right kneecap. The 2015 UDFA played 290 snaps in 2016 and has the ability to play slot and outside. Adjei-Barimah will compete for a spot this summer.5 hours
39.Trevor Siemian reportedly available for ... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos are expected to make Trevor Siemian available for trade this offseason. Analysis: Denver would be lucky to get anything more than a conditional sixth- or seventh-rounder, especially in what looks to be a loaded -- for its standards -- quarterback market via draft and free agency this year. Siemian has starting experience, sure, but he completely bombed out last season and is also recovering from left shoulder (non-throwing) surgery. Denver is going to overhaul its QB room.6 hours
40.Colts | Andrew Luck throwing weighted balls (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is throwing weighted balls, which are heavier than footballs, in his rehabilitation.7 hours
41.NFL | Nick Folk medically cleared (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent PK Nick Folk (knee) has been medically cleared to resume kicking by Dr. James Andrews.8 hours
42.Jarvis Landry gets tagged by Miami (Dynasty League Football) The Dolphins have designated Jarvis Landry as their franchise player. Analysis: Landry will now return to the Dolphins either as their franchise player or as a result of a long-term extension they're reportedly still working on. Landry has been ultra productive during his four years in Miami, catching a total of 400 passes and leading the league in receptions last season with 112, a career high. While not the most explosive receiver on the planet (he averaged just 8.8 yards per catch last year and 10.0 for his career), Landry has been a rel... (More)13 hours
43.Dolphins | Miami looking to trade Jarvis Landry? (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry received the non-exclusive franchise tag Tuesday, Feb. 20 - the first day teams could assign the franchise tag to players - which is being interpreted as a desire by the Dolphins to trade him, according to a league source.16 hours
44.Dolphins using tag in order to trade Lan... (Rotoworld) A league source told PFT's Mike Florio that the Dolphins quickly franchise-tagging Jarvis Landry is "being interpreted as a desire" by Miami to trade Landry. Analysis: The Dolphins slapped the tag on Landry on the first day teams were allowed to do so on Tuesday, which is pretty quick. Typically, tags come closer to the early-March deadline each year after both sides have exhausted all avenues in extension talks, buying the sides until July to hammer out a long-term deal. That very well could be the case here, as well, but the way the Dolphins have spoken of Landry the past y... (More)17 hours
45.Jarvis Landry receives franchise tag from Dolphins (FantasyPros) The Miami Dolphins have placed the franchise tag on wide receiver Jarvis Landry, the team announced on Twitter Tuesday night. Analysis: Landry led the NFL in catches last season and is seeking his first big payday now that his rookie contract has ended. The Dolphins and Landry, according to reports, have been far apart in negotiations but will now have a few months to see if they can work something out. While Landry's overall stats would seem to indicate he is due to be paid like one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, his 8.8 yards-per-reception in 2017 -- a new c... (More)19 hours
46.Dolphins | Miami places franchise tag on Jarvis Landry (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry received the non-exclusive franchise tag Tuesday, Feb. 20.19 hours
47.Jarvis Landry expected to be franchise tagged (FantasyPros) Miami Dolphins beat writer Joe Schad is reporting that the team is expected to use the franchise tag on WR Jarvis Landy this offseason. Analysis: Coming off of a career year in 2017 -- he accumulated a 112-987-9 stat line last season -- the Dolphins are expected to use the franchise tag on Landry this offseason. However, Landry, who led the NFL in catches last season, is looking for a long-term payday and per history, it doesn't seem like Miami views Landry as a true WR1. Therefore, the two sides could have a difficult time working out a deal, which leads me to believe they could ultimately tag him with the intent of trading him... (More)19 hours
48.Report: MIA expected to franchise tag La... (Rotoworld) The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are expected to use the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jarvis Landry. Analysis: This pretty much goes against everything that has been hinted at by the Dolphins and the local media for the past year or so. It had previously been expected that Landry would leave the Dolphins as a free agent, especially since they have Kenny Stills on a big contract and former first-rounder DeVahte Parker at receiver. Perhaps the organization isn't as high on Parker after a really disappointing 2017 and is choosing to build around Landry at the position. On the tag,... (More)19 hours
49.Luck: 'Ship has sailed' on another surge... (Rotoworld) Speaking in a Tuesday interview, Andrew Luck (shoulder) insisted he does not need another operation. Analysis: "That is not an option for me right now," Luck said. "That ship has sailed as far as I'm concerned. Which is a relief, I'm not going to lie." Luck was speaking in a pre-recorded interview at a Colts "town hall." Skeptics could latch onto the "right now" in Luck's statement, but he seems to genuinely believe he won't need to go back under the knife. His comments come the same day coach Frank Reich said the team is "hopeful" Luck w... (More)20 hours
50.Doug Martin released by Tampa Bay (Dynasty League Football) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released veteran running back Doug Martin. Analysis: This move is not a surprise as Martin has struggled both on the field and off in the past two seasons. Considering the crowded free agent and draft classes, Martin might be lucky to find a roster spot moving forward. As a result, his dynasty value is nearly gone.20 hours
51.Dolphins place franchise tag on Jarvis Landry (FFToday) The Dolphins have placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on receiver Jarvis Landry, a move that would pay the receiver about $16 million next season if the sides do not agree on a long-term contract. The Dolphins will continue to work with Landry on a multiyear deal but also have the right to rescind the tag if they choose. Analysis: The non-exclusive tag means Miami could get two first round picks if another team signs him to a long-term contract. The free agent WR market is very thin with Landry being one of the top options. Landry has averaged 105 per season over the last... (More)20 hours
52.DT Floyd trying to recoup salary from Vi... (Rotoworld) DT Sharrif Floyd is awaiting resolution of a grievance he filed against the Vikings in September. Analysis: Battling a lingering, and likely career-ending, knee injury, Floyd spent 2017 on the reserve/NFI list. That got the Vikings out of paying his entire $6.757 million salary. Teams can pay "an amount of their choosing" to players on the NFI list. The Vikes settled on $2.006 million. Floyd contends he should have been on the PUP list instead of NFI, and entitled to his full salary.21 hours
53.Joe Thomas hopes to reach 2018 decision ... (Rotoworld) Browns LT Joe Thomas hopes to have a decision on his 2018 status by the start of free agency. Analysis: "Whether I’m going to come back or retire, I think, from their perspective, having a certain need going into free agency is important," Thomas said. The reality is, the Browns will need to know even sooner than that so they can begin planning for the future if Thomas hangs up his cleats. We doubt he will leave the Browns in a lurch. 21 hours
54.Colts | Indy hopes to have Andrew Luck at OTAs (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still rehabilitating his throwing shoulder, but head coach Frank Reich hopes his star quarterback is healthy enough to participate in organized team activities.21 hours
55.Hedge fund manager 'frontrunner' for Pan... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports "billionaire hedge fund manager" David Tepper has emerged as the "frontrunner" to buy the Panthers. Analysis: One of the richest men in the country, Tepper is currently a minority owner in the Steelers. He is the founder and president of Appaloosa Management, a "global hedge fund firm based in Miami Beach." Regardless of whether or not it's Tepper, someone extremely rich is going to buy the Panthers.21 hours
56.Colts hopeful Andrew Luck will throw in ... (Rotoworld) New Colts coach Frank Reich is "hopeful" Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be ready to throw in OTAs in April. Analysis: We've learned not to put much stock in the Colts' "hopes" for Luck's surgically-repaired shoulder but it's still better than the alternative. There figures to be dozens of updates on Luck's progress, or lack thereof, between now and training camp. The smartest thing to do is to consider Luck questionable for Week 1 until genuine signs of progress are demonstrated.21 hours
57.Ryan Succop: Signs contract extension (RotoWire) Succop signed a five-year, $20 million extension with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Analysis: It was a career-year for Succop in 2017, as the kicker made 35-of-42 field goal attempts. He also set an NFL record by connecting on 56 straight field goals from inside the 50-yard line, which dates back to 2014. His 35 made field goals and 136 points were both career highs and he was also named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September.21 hours
58.Titans | Ryan Succop contract details (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans PK Ryan Succop's contract extension is five years in length and worth $20 million with $7.5 million in guaranteed money, according to a source. He will earn $8.5 million over the first two years of the contract.21 hours
59.Titans | Ryan Succop given extension (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Tennessee Titans impending free-agent PK Ryan Succop agreed to a multi-year contract extension Tuesday, Feb. 20. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.22 hours
60.Titans keep K Succop with multi-year dea... (Rotoworld) Titans signed K Ryan Succop to a multi-year contract extension. Analysis: Succop had been set for unrestricted free agency. The Titans' kicker since 2014, Succop converted 83.3 percent of his field goal attempts last season. That was actually his worst number as a Titan but still above the "acceptable" threshold of 80. With a career long of 54, Succop doesn't have a particularly big leg.22 hours
61.Eagles promote Duce Staley to assistant ... (Rotoworld) Eagles promoted RBs coach Duce Staley to assistant head coach. Analysis: Staley was passed over for offensive coordinator duties by WRs coach Mike Groh but gets a new title by way of apology. Staley has been on the Eagles' staff since 2011, and is widely considered a future coordinator.22 hours

64.Le'Veon Bell to see franchise tag? (FantasyPros) Pittsburgh Steelers beat writer Jeremy Fowler is reporting that the team will likely place the franchise tag on RB Le'Veon Bell prior to the March 6 deadline. Analysis: Fowler stated that "barring any unforeseen developments," the Steelers will use the franchise tag on Bell. And if they do indeed tag the elite rusher, it would come to no surprise despite the fact that Bell threatened to hold out the 2018 season in its entirety during Divisional Weekend if he and the Steelers do not come to terms on a new long-term deal. However, since Antonio Brown got paid last offs... (More)23 hours
65.Steve McLendon: Team option for 2018 exercised (RotoWire) The Jets picked up McLendon's $3.13 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: McLendon enters the third and final year of the deal he signed with the Jets in free agency in March 2016 coming off the best season of his career. Though he saw his sack total drop from 3.5 the year prior down to 1.5, the nose tackle was more effective than ever at stuffing the run game. He finished with 46 tackles in 16 games, exceeding his total (42) from the 2015 and 2016 campaigns combined. The 32-year-old should fill a starting role once again during the upcoming campaign.23 hours
66.Josh Martin: Contract option picked up (RotoWire) The Jets exercised Martin's $1.8 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: It was likely an easy decision for the Jets to bring back Martin after he finished the past season in a starting role at outside linebacker and acquitted himself well in that capacity. The 26-year-old achieved career highs across the board in 2017, finishing with 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pass breakup. Look for him to fill at least a rotational role at linebacker to go along with his duties on special teams during the upcoming season.23 hours
67.Jaguars | Options declined for two Jaguars (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Jacksonville Jaguars TE Mychal Rivera and WR Arrelious Benn had their options declined Tuesday, Feb. 20. They will hit the free-agent market when the new league year commences in mid-March.23 hours
68.Arrelious Benn: Option declined for 2018 (RotoWire) The Jaguars declined Benn's (knee) $790,000 team option for 2018 on Tuesday, making the wide receiver an unrestricted free agent March 14, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports. Analysis: Benn had spent parts of the past three seasons with the Jaguars as a depth wideout and special-teams contributor, appearing 24 games and notching six receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown. Though Benn could have been retained at an affordable price for the upcoming season, his poor track record on the health front likely had the Jaguars eager to look elsewhere to fill out their wideout ranks.23 hours
69.Mychal Rivera: Optioned declined for 2018 (RotoWire) The Jaguars declined Rivera's (wrist) $1.25 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, making the tight end an unrestricted free agent March 14, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports. Analysis: Rivera will finish his Jacksonville tenure without ever having played a down after a preseason wrist injury resulted in the Jaguars shuffling him to injured reserve prior to the opener. The 27-year-old was at risk of being cut following the preseason even if he had stayed healthy, so it wasn't a major surprise the Jaguars decided to part ways with him in free agency. Rivera displayed some aptitude as a pass catcher during his first four seasons... (More)23 hours
70.Jaguars decline option year on Arrelious... (Rotoworld) The Jaguars declined their 2018 option on WR Arrelious Benn, making him a free agent. Analysis: Somewhat surprisingly, Benn spent all of 2017 on Jacksonville's 53-man roster, catching one pass in nine games. The 2010 second-round pick has 10 total grabs since the end of the 2011 season. He turns 30 in September.23 hours

72.Steelers | Le'Veon Bell likely to be tagged (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag again this offseason. That tag is worth $14.5 million. He and the Steelers would still be able to accomplish a long-term deal. Analysis: Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag again this offseason. That tag is worth $14.5 million. He and the Steelers would still be able to accomplish a long-term deal.23 hours
73.Chris Baker: Cut loose by Tampa Bay (RotoWire) The Buccaneers released Baker on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Baker was a major disappointment for the Buccaneers upon signing a three-year, $15.75 million contract last March. Though the defensive lineman missed just one game, he finished with a half sack and 33 tackles, his lowest marks in both categories since 2013. Now on the wrong side of 30 years old and coming off a down season, Baker will likely have to settle for a short-term deal with another club this offseason in order to rebuild value.23 hours
74.Deiondre' Hall: Receives probation for 2017 incident (RotoWire) Hall received six months' probation Feb. 6 after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and public intoxication charges related to a March 2017 incident in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Analysis: Though Hall's legal situation is now resolved, it remains to be seen if he'll be subject to further discipline from the Bears or the NFL. Hall, a 2016 fourth-round pick, appeared in two games last season after being activated from injured reserve in early December following an extended absence due to a hamstring issue.23 hours

76.Le'Veon fully expected to be franchise t... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Steelers are fully expected to use the franchise tag on Le'Veon Bell ahead of the March 6 deadline. Analysis: Both sides seem ready to finally hammer out a long-term deal, but the franchise tag will buy time to do it. Fowler reports the Steelers have already budgeted the $14.5 million tag into their salary cap plan for free agency. The deadline for franchise tagged players to sign long-term deals is July 15.1 day
77.Bucs release DT Chris Baker, save $4.875... (Rotoworld) Bucs released DT Chris Baker. Analysis: Baker signed a "three-year, $15.75 million" contract last March but was a huge disappointment his first year in Tampa. The Tampa Bay Times reported in December that both teammates and coaches had questioned Baker's efforts. Baker faced similar questions with the Redskins. His entire $4.875 million cap hit comes off the books. Baker, who notched 0.5 sacks in 15 games in 2017, turns 31 in October.1 day
78.Buccaneers | Chris Baker released (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Chris Baker was released Tuesday, Feb. 20, according to a source. He was due $4.88 million in 2018 of which $3 million would have been fully guaranteed.1 day
79.Saints keep long snapper Zach Wood (Rotoworld) Saints re-signed LS Zach Wood to a one-year, $555,000 contract. Analysis: Wood was an exclusive rights free agent. 2017 was his first year snapping the snaps that are longer than regular snaps in New Orleans.1 day
80.Colts | Adam Vinatieri plans to keep playing (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri intends to continue his playing career in 2018 - which would be his 23rd season in the NFL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.1 day
81.Adam Vinatieri: Intends to play in 2018 (RotoWire) Vinatieri intends to play a 23rd NFL season in 2018, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Vinatieri indicated after the Colts' season ended that he had no desire to hang up his cleats, so look for Indianapolis to re-sign the veteran on a one-year deal when he hits free agency in March. Though his scoring production declined in 2017 without Andrew Luck (shoulder) directing the offense, Vinatieri was reliable as usual, converting 29 of 34 field-goal attempts and 22 of 24 extra-point tries. Two of those misses from the field came in challenging blizzard conditions in Buffalo in Week 14.1 day
82.Nick Folk: Cleared to resume kicking (RotoWire) Folk (knee) met last week with Dr. James Andrews, who officially cleared the 33-year-old to resume kicking, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Folk beat out incumbent Roberto Aguayo for the Buccaneers' kicking duties in training camp but lost the gig after missing all three of his field-goal attempts in a narrow Week 5 loss to the Patriots. While Folk was initially expected to be released, the Buccaneers instead stashed him on injured reserve due to a minor case of left knee tendinitis, for which the veteran ultimately underwent surgery. Now fully healthy, Folk, who will officially become a free agent March 14, will likely head ... (More)1 day
83.Adam Vinatieri plans to keep kicking in ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports impending free agent Adam Vinatieri plans to continue his career in 2018. Analysis: Vinatieri basically said as much last month, but the report confirms he has not changed his mind. The veteran said he would like to return to the Colts, but he sounded like he is also open to a move. Vinatieri has spent the last 12 seasons in Indianapolis after spending 10 seasons with the Patriots.1 day
84.Brian Cushing: Officially released Tuesday (RotoWire) The Texans officially released Cushing on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The transaction was a formality after the Texans informed Cushing two days earlier that they would part ways with him before the start of the new league year. While Cushing missed 10 games due to suspension last season, rookies Zach Cunningham and Dylan Cole proved capable at inside linebacker, which likely contributed heavily to the Texans' decision to cut the veteran.1 day

86.Jerrell Freeman: Gets cut by Chicago (RotoWire) The Bears released Freeman (concussion/pectoral) Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Freeman led the Bears in tackles in 2016 despite missing four games after violating the NFL's performance-enhancing-drugs policy, but the inside linebacker endured a nightmarish 2017 campaign both on and off the field. The 31-year-old was lost for the season after tearing a pectoral muscle and suffering a concussion in the opener and was later busted for a second PED violation in October, netting him a 10-game suspension that will carry over for the first two weeks of the 2018 season. Shortly after the suspension, Freeman acknowledged th... (More)1 day

88.Bears cut ties with ILB Jerrell Freeman (Rotoworld) Bears released ILB Jerrell Freeman. Analysis: This fully expected move will save Chicago $3.5 million against the cap. Freeman played well his first season with the Bears, but he missed four games because of a PED suspension and picked up another 10 game ban last year, the final two games of which he will have to serve in 2018. He is also set to turn 32 in May and is coming off a torn pectoral. Even so, he is good enough to get a look from teams in need of linebacker help.1 day
89.Marcedes Lewis: Team exercises 2018 option (RotoWire) The Jaguars exercised Lewis' $3.5 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports. Analysis: While Lewis' salary isn't guaranteed for 2018, the transaction more or less indicates the Jaguars plan on bringing the tight end back for a 13th season. Lewis has long been a tertiary member of the Jaguars' passing attack, but his marks of 318 yards and five touchdowns last season were his best since 2013, though the production was mostly inflated by an outlier 62-yard, three-score performance in Week 3. Since Lewis is set to turn 34 years old in May, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Jaguars made add... (More)1 day
90.Jaguars | Three Jaguars' options picked up (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis, OT Josh Wells and G/C Tyler Shatley had their options for the 2018 season exercised Tuesday, Feb. 20.1 day
91.Eagles promote Groh to offensive coordin... (Rotoworld) Eagles promoted WRs coach Mike Groh to offensive coordinator. Analysis: The Eagles also interviewed RBs coach Duce Staley for the job, but they are going with Groh. It may not mean much in the grand scheme of things as Doug Pederson will continue to run the offense while both Groh and Staley have big roles in game-planning, but it is a big career step for Groh, whose only other coordinating experience came at Virginia in the mid-2000s.1 day
92.Jaguars picked up Marcedes Lewis' 2018 o... (Rotoworld) Jaguars picked up TE Marcedes Lewis' 2018 option. Analysis: According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, they did the same for OT Josh Wells and OG Tyler Shatley, meaning all three will be back with the team. Lewis is entering the final year of his deal, so it would not be surprising if the team works out an extension with the veteran blocker.1 day
93.Doug Martin: Released by Tampa Bay (RotoWire) The Buccaneers released Martin on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Analysis: After following up a strong rookie year in 2012 with back-to-back disappointing seasons, Martin temporarily quieted his critics by amassing 1,673 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns in 2015, netting him a five-year, $35.75 million contract extension the following spring. However, Martin regressed badly thereafter, averaging less than three yards per carry in both of the past two seasons while missing time due to injury and an untimely four-game suspension, which delayed the start to his 2017 campaign. In cutting Martin loose, the Buc... (More)1 day
94.Doug Martin released (FantasyPros) NFL Insider Adam Caplan is reporting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released RB Doug Martin on Tuesday. Analysis: In an expected move, the Buccaneers have given up on Martin, releasing the once promising rusher following six inconsistent and injury-plagued years mixed in with off the field issues. While his career has been a disappointment so far, he's young enough - Martin turned 29 last month - to rejuvenate his career on another club. Expect him to be on a roster by training camp. The Buccaneers will save $6.75 million in cap space and cash as a result of Martin's ... (More)1 day
95.Buccaneers | Doug Martin cut (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was released Tuesday, Feb. 20. The Bucs will save $6.75 million. Due to the structure of his contract, the team will absorb no dead money on their salary cap.1 day
96.Bucs release former All-Pro Doug Martin (Rotoworld) Bucs released Doug Martin. Analysis: This move, which saves Tampa Bay $6.75 million against the cap, was fully expected following two seasons marred by injury, suspension, and ineffectiveness. Martin was an All-Pro as recently as 2015, however, and just turned 29 in January. He would be a good get for running-back needy teams on a one-year, incentive-laden deal. For the Bucs, Peyton Barber played reasonably well down the stretch last season, but they will be on the lookout for help this spring, especially with Charles Sims headed to free agency.1 day
97.Buccaneers release Doug Martin (FFToday) After six up and mostly down seasons, Doug Martin's run with the Bucs is over. The two-time Pro Bowl running back was released by Tampa Bay Tuesday, a move that was expected after he failed to rush for less than 500 yards in four of the past five seasons. The decision will save the Bucs $6.75 million that Martin was scheduled to earn in 2018. Because of the structure of his contract, the team will absorb no dead money on their salary cap.1 day
98.Reporter believes Eli Apple will be trad... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jordan Raanan believes Giants CB Eli Apple will be traded this offseason. Analysis: Apple is unquestionably talented, but he was a massive locker-room headache in 2017, clashing with coaches, teammates, and the organization. It is possible the new coaching staff decides to give the 2016 first-round pick a clean slate, but Raanan expects them to move on. Trading Apple will cost the Giants around $500,000 in cap space.1 day
99.Jaylen Watkins: Won't be tendered contract (RotoWire) The Eagles aren't planning to tender a 2018 contract to Watkins, which will make him an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: With Watkins having completed his rookie contract and now heading into his fifth season, the Eagles would have to extend a fourth-round tender in order to retain him, but the organization apparently didn't feel he was worthy of that price tag. The 25-year-old appeared in 28 games over the past two seasons, but saw nearly as many snaps (165) on special teams as he did on defense (168) in 2017. With 2017 second-round defensive back Sidney Jones... (More)1 day
