  • Theo Jackson MIN DB
    Vikings' Theo Jackson: Re-signs with Minnesota
    11h ago

    The Vikings re-signed Jackson (toe) on Wednesday.

    Jackson was set to be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, and the two sides quickly came together on a new deal. The 2022 sixth-rounder played in 15 games for Minnesota last season, seeing 126 snaps on defense and another 260 on special teams, finishing with 21 tackles (14 solo) and one interception. He missed the final two games of 2023 with a toe injury.

    Chiefs' Charles Omenihu: Undergoes knee surgery
    11h ago

    Omenihu (knee) underwent successful surgery to repair his torn ACL on Tuesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Omenihu suffered the ACL tear in the Chiefs' AFC Championship Game win over the Ravens and obviously missed the Super Bowl versus his former San Francisco teammates. His surgery will now be followed up by a lengthy recovery, leaving his Week 1 status in doubt less than seven months from now. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Omenihu start the 2024 campaign on the reserve/PUP list.

    Jaguars' Devin Lloyd: Tallies 127 tackles
    13h ago

    Lloyd finished the 2023 season with 127 tackles (75 solo), seven passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 15 games.

    Despite playing in two fewer games than he did as a rookie, the 2022 first-round pick recorded 12 more tackles in his second NFL season. Lloyd's production is also notable since he plays alongside Foye Oluokun, who was once again one of the most productive tacklers in the league with 173 stops.

    Jaguars' Foye Oluokun: Totals 173 tackles in 2023
    13h ago

    Oluokun finished the 2023 season with 173 tackles (111 solo), 2.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 17 games.

    The 28-year-old was unable to clear 180 tackles for the third straight season, but he still led the Jaguars in the category and ranked fourth in the NFL. Oluokun is entering the final year of the three-year, $45 million pact he signed with Jacksonville in 2022, and he should again be a top IDP linebacker in 2024.

    Bears' Justin Fields: Wants word on future soon
    15h ago

    Fields said Wednesday during his appearance on the "St. Brown Bros Podcast" that he prefers to stays in Chicago but wants to know if he's getting traded as soon as possible.

    Fields downplayed his recent decision to unfollow the Bears' official account on Instagram, noting that he also unfollowed other accounts (including the NFL's) to avoid having football content on his timeline during the offseason. He had nothing but praise for Bears fans and the city of Chicago, but Fields also seemed well aware of the possibility of being replaced by the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Talking with teammate Equanimeous St. Brown and Lions wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown on their podcast, Fields mentioned a couple of the teams rumored to have interest in trading for him, saying that the Steelers have a great stadium atmosphere and the Falcons have impressive playmakers on offense. Atlanta is the early favorite in betting markets to acquire the Georgia native, with other possibilities including Pittsburgh, New England, Las Vegas and Denver. Despite Fields' desire for a quick resolution on his future, the Bears' decision on whether to keep him on the roster for 2024 or work toward a trade could drag on for weeks, or even months.

    Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Recovering from surgery

    Heyward underwent a cleanup surgery Tuesday to address a groin/core muscle injury, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Heyward missed six consecutive games due to a groin injury this past season, but he was able to return to action Week 9 and played the rest of Pittsburgh's slate. However, the veteran pass rusher still seemed to be hampered by injury even while back in the lineup, as he finished with just two sacks across 11 appearances, after having previously logged back-to-back seasons with at least 10 sacks. He could be more effective when back to full health in 2024, the final season of his four-year deal with the Steelers.

  • Tyler Huntley BAL QB
    Ravens' Tyler Huntley: Capable showing in contract year
    2d ago

    Huntley finished the 2023 regular season having completed 21 of 37 passes for 203 yards and three touchdowns over five games. He added 15 carries for 55 yards.

    The bulk of Huntley's production came in his lone start during the final game of the regular season, when he went 15 for 28 for 146 yards with one touchdown. His other appearances came in blowout wins over the Browns, Lions, Seahawks and Dolphins. Huntley could be heading toward an impasse with the Ravens, as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent just as Lamar Jackson's $260 million contract extension kicks in, Baltimore may opt for a more cost-efficient backup quarterback as a result. The fact that the team traded for rookie quarterback Malik Cunningham during the season only strengthens that notion. Should Huntley hit the open market, he'd be a strong option for any team looking to bolster its quarterback room. However, it's unlikely that he would be brought in anywhere with a serious expectation to start.

    Browns' Deshaun Watson: Almost ready to throw again
    3d ago

    Watson (shoulder) is on track or slightly ahead in his rehab schedule and will begin throwing in March, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The quarterback had surgery Nov. 21 to repair a fractured right shoulder socket. Watson resumed work in the weight room last week and is already discussing the possibility of organizing offseason throwing sessions with teammates for the third year in a row. New Browns offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey said he's optimistic about getting Watson back to the level of play he demonstrated in Houston, and the the QB's fully guaranteed contract ensures the Browns will give him another chance as the clear starter despite disappointing showings in the second half of 2022 and the first half of 2023. The contract runs through 2026 (Watson's age-31 season).

  • Kenny Pickett PIT QB
    Steelers' Kenny Pickett: Getting another shot in 2024?
    3d ago

    The Steelers want to give Pickett another chance to be their starting quarterback, according to Gerry Dulac of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    The 2022 first-round pick has thrown 13 touchdown passes in 24 NFL games but went 7-5 as a starter in both of his first two pro seasons. While it's safe to say Pickett won't ever be a top quarterback, the Steelers apparently hope he can become a competent starter under new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Dulac suggests the Steelers are unlikely to pursue QBs that definitely would expect to be starters (e.g. Justin Fields, Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins) but could end up re-signing impending free agent Mason Rudolph, who replaced an injured Pickett in December and then continued to start once his teammate was medically cleared. It's certainly worth noting that not all of the Pittsburgh beat reporters are as confident as Dulac about the Steelers wanting to give Pickett another shot rather than replacing him with someone like Fields/Cousins/Wilson.

  • Brian Hoyer LV QB
    Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Outplayed by rookie in 2023
    3d ago

    Hoyer completed 23 of 42 pass attempts for 231 yards across three contests with the Raiders in 2023, but he didn't see any game action after rookie Aidan O'Connell secured the full-time starting job Week 9.

    Hoyer threw a pair of interceptions Week 7 against the Bears in what turned out to be his final on-field performance of the season, which ultimately allowed the aforementioned O'Connell to prove himself worthy of a roster spot moving forward. Although a $2.6 million dead cap hit would accompany Hoyer's potential release this offseason, it'd be surprising for the Raiders not to move on from the 38-year-old signal-caller, especially given former coach Josh McDaniels' and former general manager Dave Ziegler's departure from the organization. At this stage in his career, retirement isn't off the table for Hoyer, either.

    Raiders' Jimmy Garoppolo: Suspended for PED violation
    6d ago

    Garoppolo will be suspended for the first two games of 2024 for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances and the Raiders are expected to release him this offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Garoppolo used a prescribed medication without having a valid Therapeutic Use Exemption from the league. He was likely headed for a release anyway, as the Raiders benched him in 2023 and can avoid paying an $11.25 million roster bonus if they cut the 32-year-old before March 17. This suspension may also allow the team to nullify an $11.25 million base salary that previously was guaranteed.

    Browns' Nick Chubb: May be asked to renegotiate
    2d ago

    The Browns want to keep Chubb (knee) but might consider releasing him this offseason if the two sides can't agree on a new contract, according to Zac Jackson of The Athletic.

    Chubb probably wouldn't like the idea of taking a pay cut for the final year of his contract, as he mostly outplayed the terms of the deal before suffering an ACL tear in September. An extension would allow the Browns to lower his $15.83 million cap hit and $11.78 million base salary for 2024 without forcing Chubb to take a straight-up pay cut, though the team might be hesitant to offer significant guarantees to a 28-year-old RB coming back from a severe injury. GM Andrew Berry said in January that the Browns intend to bring Chubb back for 2024, one way or another.

In his lone cameo for San Francisco last season, Davis-Price carried the ball six times for 21 yards.

  • Dalvin Cook BAL RB
    Ravens' Dalvin Cook: Struggles in 2023
    2d ago

    Cook finished the year with 75 carries for 237 yards and no touchdowns while adding 15 catches for 78 yards on 20 targets, including the postseason.

    The veteran began the year with the Jets before mutually parting ways with Gang Green in time to sign with a playoff contender. Cook latched on with the Ravens and was saw some action in the divisional-round win over the Texans with eight carries for 23 yards. Unfortunately, this was the worst season of the 28-year-old's career by any metric. Cook was on a one-year deal and it does not appear likely that Baltimore will re-sign him, so the veteran projects to hit the open market as an aging running back coming off a tough year. The days of Cook garnering a long-term deal are likely behind him.

    Bengals' Joe Mixon: Possible cap casualty
    3d ago

    Mixon is a potential cap casualty this offseason, though it won't be surprising if he's back with the Bengals instead, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The same was said last offseason until Mixon renegotiated his contract in mid-July to lower his base salaries for 2023 and 2024 while adding some incentives. He's now scheduled for an $8.85 million cap hit in the final year of his deal, with the Bengals carrying $2.75 million in dead money for 2024 if the running back is traded or released before he's due a $3 million roster bonus March 18. The timing of the bonus at least means we should have some clarity early in the offseason, whereas last year there were rumors swirling around Mixon from January to July. Possibilities for 2024 include a trade, release, contract extension or simply keeping him under his current deal. He turns 28 in July, coming off a 2023 campaign with 1,410 yards and 12 touchdowns from scrimmage.

    Patriots' Rhamondre Stevenson: Close to full strength
    3d ago

    Stevenson (ankle) recently said he's "feeling great" and would be able to play in a game if the Patriots had one coming up, Nicole Yang of The Boston Globe reports.

    Stevenson has been going to physical therapy four or five times per week since missing the final five games of 2023 with a high-ankle injury. It sounds like he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program, heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. Stevenson said he plans to speak to new coach Jerod Mayo and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt about his desire to handle a clear lead role in the backfield, after rotating with Damien Harris in 2022 and Ezekiel Elliott in 2023. Elliott is headed for unrestricted free agency this offseason, leaving Stevenson and 2022 sixth-round pick Kevin Harris as the only RBs from the 2023 roster under contract for 2024.

    The Buccaneers may release Gage (knee) before he's due a $1.5 million roster bonus March 1, Dan Pompei of The Athletic reports.

    Gage also has a non-guaranteed $8.5 million base salary for the third and final year of his contract, though the use of void years means the Buccaneers will free up only $6.5 million in 2024 cap space if he's released. The 28-year-old suffered a torn patellar tendon in August, putting his NFL future in jeopardy. Gage might consider renegotiating his contract to stay in Tampa Bay and continue his rehab with the Buccaneers.

    Steelers' Allen Robinson: Probable offseason cut
    2d ago

    The Steelers will add $10 million in 2024 cap space if Robinson is released this offseason, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Robinson has one year remaining on his contract but was always a long shot to actually see the money. That's especially true after he somehow managed to produce just 280 receiving yards and no TDs despite starting all 17 games in 2023 and playing 72 percent of Pittsburgh's snaps on offense. If Robinson does stick around, it'll be with a renegotiated contract that puts him much closer to the veteran's minimum than to his currently scheduled salary of $10 million. Even in that scenario, he's unlikely to be assured of a top-three role under new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

  • Hunter Renfrow LV WR
    Raiders' Hunter Renfrow: Likely headed for release
    2d ago

    The Raiders can add $11.8 million in 2024 cap space if they release Renfrow with a post-June 1 designation, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

    Renfrow has just one season left on his contract, but the use of void years means dead-cap charges for 2025 and 2026 will accelerate onto the 2024 sheet if he's traded before June 1 or released without the aforementioned designation. Either way, the Raiders would avoid paying him an $11.53 million base salary, $100,000 workout bonus and up to $629,000 in per-game roster bonuses. It's an obvious move given his lack of production the past two seasons, though there is a scenario in which Renfrow stays in Las Vegas via a renegotiation or extension that drastically lowers his compensation. He's highly unlikely to have a trade market under the terms of the current contract.

    Chiefs' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Candidate to be released

    Kansas City may release Valdes-Scantling this offseason, a move that would clear up $12 million in cap space, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

    It's a no-brainer move barring a renegotiated contract, despite Valdes-Scantling's contributions in the playoffs the past two seasons. He's won two rings since signing a three-year, $30 million contract with the team in March 2022, but he caught only 21 passes for 315 yards and one touchdown in 16 games during the 2023 regular season. Valdes-Scantling will turn 30 years old next October and has never reached 700 yards in a season despite taking nearly all of his NFL snaps with either Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers under center.

He's now entering the final year of the deal and the 30-year-old has a non-guaranteed $9.5 million base salary for 2024. It is possible Patrick accepts a pay cut to stay in Denver and attempt his return from the torn Achilles tendon he suffered in August.

It was his first 100-yard game since Nov. 2021, six weeks before he suffered a career-altering ACL tear. Gallup has three seasons remaining on the five-year, $57.5 million extension he signed a few months after suffering the injury, but none of the remaining money is guaranteed. The Cowboys can free up $9.5 million in 2024 cap space if Gallup is designated as a post-June 1 release, while cutting him without the designation would free up just $800,000 but keep him off the books for 2025. He'll probably need to accept a pay cut if he wants to stay in Dallas

    Alie-Cox is scheduled for $5.9 million in non-guaranteed compensation for 2024, making him a candidate to be released this offseason, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

    He's entering the final year of his contract and will turn 31 in September. Alie-Cox has long been the Colts' best blocking tight end and has 14 touchdowns among his 102 career receptions, so it won't be surprising if he ends up sticking around, possibly via a contract extension or renegotiated contract. Kylen Granson, Will Mallory, Jelani Woods and Andrew Ogletree are all more likely to operate as the team's top receiving threat at tight end in 2024, though it's been a long time since the Colts had a true No. 1 option rather than taking a committee approach to the position.

  • Jonnu Smith ATL TE
    Falcons' Jonnu Smith: May be cut for cap space
    2d ago

    Smith may be released this offseason, according to Josh Kendall of The Athletic.

    The Falcons traded for Smith last offseason and then put him in a role that allowed for career highs in targets (70), catches (50) and receiving yards (582), with the TE producing more yards than he had in two seasons combined (2021-22) for New England. His future nonetheless appears uncertain, as Smith will turn 29 in August and has a non-guaranteed $6.5 million base salary for the final year of his contract. The Falcons still have Kyle Pitts under contract and just hired an offensive coordinator in Zac Robinson whose only prior NFL coaching experience was a five-year stint with a Rams team that regularly led the league in use of three-wide formations. The Falcons likely would try to trade Smith before releasing him, and another option would be a contract extension that lowers his 2024 cap hit.

    Ravens' Isaiah Likely: Arrow pointing up after Year 2
    2d ago

    Likely finished his second NFL season with 30 catches for 411 yards and five touchdowns on 40 targets over 17 regular-season games. He added four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown in two postseason games.

    Though the tight end's target count dropped from 60 to 40, with most of his looks coming during Mark Andrews' lengthy absence, his counting stats and efficiency both ticked up significantly. Likely bumped his catch rate from 60 percent to 75 and his yards per target from 6.2 to 10.3 while topping his rookie totals for receiving yards and touchdowns. Though Andrews is still a major factor in the Ravens' passing game when healthy, Likely is overqualified to be a traditional No. 2 tight end. Baltimore's wide receiver corps is still a work in progress beyond Zay Flowers, however, so there could be more opportunities for the TEs. Likely has downfield ability and plenty of experience working from the slot (231 of 567 snaps in 2023) so his role could expand during his second year in OC Todd Monken's scheme.

    The veteran tight end finished the 2023 season on injured reserve after spraining his MCL in Week 13. His signing has proved to be a disaster for Jets GM Joe Douglas, as Uzomah has produced just 29 catches for 290 yards and three touchdowns across 27 contests with the team. Entering the final year of a three-year, $24 million deal, Uzomah is due an $8 million salary in 2024. The Jets can save $5.3 million against the cap by releasing the 31-year-old, leaving behind over $5.9 million in dead money.

    Alie-Cox handled his usual depth role with Indianapolis in 2023, as has been usual throughout his six-year NFL career. His yardage total for this past season was the lowest since 2019, but Alie-Cox's occasional red-zone deployment remained steady. The Colts do have a potential 'out' from Alie-Cox's contract this offseason with zero dead cap for the team, so it seems all but guaranteed that the big-bodied tight end will need to either restructure his deal or be cut.

    Hooper saw his playing time dwindle throughout the season as rookie Michael Mayer eventually earned the No. 1 role at tight end, but the latter missed the Raiders' final three contests due to a toe injury, which allowed Hooper to post a 9-80-0 receiving line from Weeks 16-18. It may have been too little, too late for Hooper, however, and the 29-year-old could possibly look to sign elsewhere when he hits unrestricted free agency this offseason.

    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.

    Prater connected on 28 of 33 field-goal attempts and 22 of 23 point-after tries in 17 regular-season games in 2023.

    Being attached to Arizona's 24th-ranked scoring offense in the NFL this season didn't afford Prater a ton of opportunities, as evidenced by ranking 25th in points per game (6.2) among all kickers to make at least 15 appearances. That said, he struck true on a career-high nine FGAs from 50-plus yards, giving him 93 such makes in his 17 years as a pro. Considering he has an 80-percent mark on field-goal accuracy in 10 of the last 11 campaigns, Prater has the consistency to regain fantasy relevance next season if the Cardinals are able to add more firepower on offense in the coming months.

    The Vikings re-signed Jackson (toe) on Wednesday.

    Jackson was set to be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, and the two sides quickly came together on a new deal. The 2022 sixth-rounder played in 15 games for Minnesota last season, seeing 126 snaps on defense and another 260 on special teams, finishing with 21 tackles (14 solo) and one interception. He missed the final two games of 2023 with a toe injury.

    Chiefs' Charles Omenihu: Undergoes knee surgery
    11h ago

    Omenihu (knee) underwent successful surgery to repair his torn ACL on Tuesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Omenihu suffered the ACL tear in the Chiefs' AFC Championship Game win over the Ravens and obviously missed the Super Bowl versus his former San Francisco teammates. His surgery will now be followed up by a lengthy recovery, leaving his Week 1 status in doubt less than seven months from now. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Omenihu start the 2024 campaign on the reserve/PUP list.

    13h ago

    Lloyd finished the 2023 season with 127 tackles (75 solo), seven passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 15 games.

    Despite playing in two fewer games than he did as a rookie, the 2022 first-round pick recorded 12 more tackles in his second NFL season. Lloyd's production is also notable since he plays alongside Foye Oluokun, who was once again one of the most productive tacklers in the league with 173 stops.

    Oluokun finished the 2023 season with 173 tackles (111 solo), 2.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 17 games.

    The 28-year-old was unable to clear 180 tackles for the third straight season, but he still led the Jaguars in the category and ranked fourth in the NFL. Oluokun is entering the final year of the three-year, $45 million pact he signed with Jacksonville in 2022, and he should again be a top IDP linebacker in 2024.

    Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Recovering from surgery
    17h ago

    Heyward underwent a cleanup surgery Tuesday to address a groin/core muscle injury, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Heyward missed six consecutive games due to a groin injury this past season, but he was able to return to action Week 9 and played the rest of Pittsburgh's slate. However, the veteran pass rusher still seemed to be hampered by injury even while back in the lineup, as he finished with just two sacks across 11 appearances, after having previously logged back-to-back seasons with at least 10 sacks. He could be more effective when back to full health in 2024, the final season of his four-year deal with the Steelers.

    Colts' Grover Stewart: Plays 11 games in 2023
    21h ago

    Stewart racked up 41 tackles (23 solo) and a half-sack across 11 regular-season games with the Colts in 2023.

    Stewart missed six games due to a suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, but he otherwise started in all 11 of the Colts' contests. The veteran's numbers dipped from his 70-tackle, four-sack season in 2022, but the quality of his play on the field remained steady. Stewart is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, though the Colts could be motivated to re-sign him.
