  • Russell Wilson DEN QB
    Broncos' Russell Wilson: Broncos officially moving on
    5m ago

    Denver announced Monday that Wilson has been informed he will be released by the team after the NFL's new league year begins March 13.

    Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Wilson's release will save the Broncos an extra $37 million in guaranteed money, while Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com notes that the team will still need to endure an NFL-record $85 million in dead cap over the next two years. Those financial ramifications highlight the extent to which Wilson's two-year stint in Denver was characterized by disappointment. The veteran ended the 2023 campaign with 297 completions on 447 pass attempts for 3,070 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 15 games, numbers which may have seemed merely mediocre were it not for his sizable salary compensation, and the valuable draft picks the Broncos parted ways with for his acquisition from Seattle. When free agency officially begins, Wilson will get a chance to search for a fresh start elsewhere, while coach Sean Payton and Denver will once again have to start anew at the quarterback position.

    Folorunso Fatukasi: Gets let go
    9m ago

    Fatukasi was released by Jacksonville on Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Fatukasi received birthday wishes from the Jaguars' official Twitter account earlier the day; however, the now 29-year-old was then cut from the team just a few hours later. The move will save Jacksonville $3.5 million in cap space, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. The UConn product finished his 2023 campaign with 24 combined tackles and a pass defended.

    Panthers' Donte Jackson: Likely done in Carolina
    35m ago

    Jackson is expected to be released or traded by the Panthers before March 16, when he is due a $4 million roster bonus, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Jackson played 16 games last year in his sixth season with Carolina, but it appears the veteran corner will not spend his seventh NFL campaign with the franchise. He ended 2023 with 59 combined tackles, five passes defended and no interceptions. His release would save the team $5.9 million in cap space this offseason.

  • L'Jarius Sneed KC CB
    Chiefs' L'Jarius Sneed: Gets Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag
    45m ago

    The Chiefs placed the Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag on Sneed on Monday.

    The transaction was expected, having been reported by Dianna Russini of The Athletic on Sunday. Sneed has permission to seek a trade and speak with teams around the league, so it's still possible he still ends up playing elsewhere during the 2024 season, if another club is willing to send sufficient draft compensation to Kansas City. Since joining the Chiefs in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Sneed has proven an ability to absolutely thrive in defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's scheme. Kansas City also continues to work towards an extension that would allow for retaining star lineman Chris Jones, so freeing up cap space could remain a serious motivation to find a trade partner for Sneed.

  • Christian Wilkins MIA DT
    Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Not expected to be tagged
    1h ago

    The Dolphins are not expected to franchise tag Wilkins by Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET deadline, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Wilkins will immediately become one of the top free agents on the market if Miami indeed opts not to place the franchise tag on him. That won't necessarily mean Wilkins' future with the Dolphins is over, but given that the 28-year-old DT is coming of a career-best season in which he produced 65 total tackles (10 for a loss), 9.0 sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries, a team around the league could reasonably offer a contract that Miami can't match. Wilkins is one of the few interior defenders in the NFL to boast a truly complete combination of run-stuffing and pass-rushing aptitude.

  • Alexander Mattison MIN RB
    Alexander Mattison: Officially released by Minnesota
    1h ago

    The Vikings officially released Mattison on Monday.

    Mattison was initially informed of his release by the team late February, and he's now officially a free agent after having signed a two-year, $7 million deal with the team last offseason. The veteran back is coming off a solid season from a volume perspective, with 700 yards on a career-high 180 carries across 16 games, but those stats are marred by a lack of explosiveness (3.9 YPC) and turnovers, with three total fumbles, two of which were lost. Mattison has now turned in three straight seasons averaging less than 4.0 YPC. Minnesota, in the meantime, should be in the market for backfield options to join Ty Chandler.

  • Joe Burrow CIN QB
    Bengals' Joe Burrow: Should be cleared in May
    6h ago

    Burrow (wrist) said Sunday that he expects to be "cleared for full contact and everything" by mid-May, ESPN.com's Ben Baby reports.

    Burrow also said he's able to lift weights "basically normally now" and has started throwing small medicine balls as part of his rehab. The QB had surgery Nov. 27 to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, 11 days after suffering the injury in a Week 11 loss at Baltimore. Prior to that, Burrow had found his groove with multiple TD passes in five straight games, bouncing back strong after throwing just two TDs over the first four weeks of the season while dealing with a lingering calf injury from training camp. He anticipates being ready for his normal throwing routine at OTAs, though it sounds like he'll take it slow until then.

    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.

    Bills' Nyheim Hines: Likely to be cut
    1d 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 nine regular-season games for Buffalo, carrying six times for minus-3 yards to go with five catches for 53 yards and a touchdown while also contributing two scores as a kickoff 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 and/or a return job at his next stop.

  • Blake Corum 2005 RB
    Blake Corum: Checks boxes at 2024 Combine
    2d 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.

    Vikings' Ty Chandler: Top running back for now
    4d 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.

    The Vikings have informed Mattison that they will be releasing him, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    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.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Discussing deal with Ravens

    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.

    Patriots' Kendrick Bourne: Mulling offer from New England
    7h ago

    The Patriots have offered Bourne (knee) a new contract, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.

    The Patriots hope to re-sign Bourne before March 11 when the impending free agent can begin negotiating with other teams. The wide receiver suffered an ACL tear in Week 8 of 2023, ending what was on track to be a career year with personal bests of 4.6 catches and 50.8 receiving yards per game. Bourne said at the Super Bowl that he's ahead of schedule in his rehab and would like to re-sign with New England, though he also said part of his motivation for attending the big game in Las Vegas was to "get [his] name out there" for potential suitors in free agency. Bourne mostly served as a No. 3 receiver before 2023 -- in San Francisco and then New England -- and that might be how a lot of teams view him as he rehabs from the severe knee injury in preparation for his age-29 season in 2024.

    Reports a few days earlier suggested Evans would hit free agency, but he ended up re-signing with the Buccaneers instead and will continue playing for the team that drafted him seventh overall in 2014. He'll turn 31 in August, having topped 1,000 yards in a record-setting 10 straight seasons to open his career, including 2023 when he had his most catches (79), yards (1,255) and targets (136) since 2018 while tying for the league lead in receiving touchdowns (13). The Buccaneers can now focus on re-signing their other prominent free agents, including QB Baker Mayfield, S Antoine Winfield and LB Lavonte David.

    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
    4d 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.

    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
    3d 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.

    Jonnu Smith: Being cut by Falcons

    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. Now set to become an unrestricted free agent, Badgley is not locked in as Detroit's starting kicker entering the 2024 campaign.

    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.

    Folorunso Fatukasi: Gets let go
    9m ago

    Fatukasi was released by Jacksonville on Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Fatukasi received birthday wishes from the Jaguars' official Twitter account earlier the day; however, the now 29-year-old was then cut from the team just a few hours later. The move will save Jacksonville $3.5 million in cap space, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. The UConn product finished his 2023 campaign with 24 combined tackles and a pass defended.

    Panthers' Donte Jackson: Likely done in Carolina
    35m ago

    Jackson is expected to be released or traded by the Panthers before March 16, when he is due a $4 million roster bonus, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Jackson played 16 games last year in his sixth season with Carolina, but it appears the veteran corner will not spend his seventh NFL campaign with the franchise. He ended 2023 with 59 combined tackles, five passes defended and no interceptions. His release would save the team $5.9 million in cap space this offseason.

    Chiefs' L'Jarius Sneed: Gets Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag
    45m ago

    The Chiefs placed the Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag on Sneed on Monday.

    The transaction was expected, having been reported by Dianna Russini of The Athletic on Sunday. Sneed has permission to seek a trade and speak with teams around the league, so it's still possible he still ends up playing elsewhere during the 2024 season, if another club is willing to send sufficient draft compensation to Kansas City. Since joining the Chiefs in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Sneed has proven an ability to absolutely thrive in defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's scheme. Kansas City also continues to work towards an extension that would allow for retaining star lineman Chris Jones, so freeing up cap space could remain a serious motivation to find a trade partner for Sneed.

  • Christian Wilkins MIA DT
    Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Not expected to be tagged
    1h ago

    The Dolphins are not expected to franchise tag Wilkins by Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET deadline, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Wilkins will immediately become one of the top free agents on the market if Miami indeed opts not to place the franchise tag on him. That won't necessarily mean Wilkins' future with the Dolphins is over, but given that the 28-year-old DT is coming of a career-best season in which he produced 65 total tackles (10 for a loss), 9.0 sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries, a team around the league could reasonably offer a contract that Miami can't match. Wilkins is one of the few interior defenders in the NFL to boast a truly complete combination of run-stuffing and pass-rushing aptitude.

    Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Makes 10 appearances in 2023
    4h ago

    Fitzpatrick made 64 tackles (43 solo) and three pass breakups across 10 regular-season games in 2023.

    Fitzpatrick missed seven total games in 2023 due to a combination of knee and hand injuries, but he managed to return to health in time for Pittsburgh's wild-card playoff loss to the Bills, a game in which he logged 10 tackles (five solo). In just 10 regular-season appearances, five of Fitzpatrick's games saw him achieve double-digit tackle totals. The 27-year-old remains one of the league's true standout safeties, with big-play potential to lend him serious fantasy upside as well. Fitzpatrick has three years remaining on his contract with the Steelers.

  • T.J. Watt PIT OLB
    Steelers' T.J. Watt: Just short of DPOY with 19.0 sacks
    4h ago

    Watt (knee) tallied 68 tackles (48 solo), 19.0 sacks, eight pass breakups, one interception, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and one defensive touchdown across 17 regular-season games in 2023.

    Watt missed Pittsburgh's wild-card loss to the Bills due to a Grade 2 MCL sprain suffered during the team's regular-season finale, but the typical recovery timetable of such an injury shouldn't impact his availability for the start of training camp. The star pass rusher narrowly lost out to Cleveland edge rusher Myles Garrett for Defensive Player of the Year honors, with voting splitting 165-140. There are no questions about Watt's impact for the Steelers' defense, and for fantasy, as he remains one of the few NFL players truly capable of achieving a 20.0-sack campaign. With two years remaining on his deal, and just $18.7 million in dead cap for 2024, it's also worth noting that Watt is a worthwhile candidate for a restructure this offseason.
