1.Chris Ivory released (Dynasty League Football) In a long expected move, the Jaguars have released Chris Ivory Analysis: Ivory will turn 30 in March and was inactive multiple times to end the 2017 season. In all likelihood he'll land at least one more one-year deal but is all but off the dynasty radar as is. This news is more important for T.J. Yeldon owners as he's now the clear backup for Leonard Fournette and is a free agent in 2019. At 24 years of age, there's plenty of runway for the 6'1"/223 lbs. back as he seeks a starting gig. On DLF's dynasty positio... (More)7 minutes
2.Eagles | Trey Burton unlikely to return to Philly (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton reportedly recently received a contract offer he "didn't consider serious" and is expected to sign with another team when free agency begin in March, according to a source.27 minutes
3.Chiefs | KC set to ship Marcus Peters to Rams (USA Today Fantasy Sports) The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to trade CB Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams on Friday, Feb. 23. The Chiefs' return in the trade has yet to be disclosed, but they are expected to receive only draft picks in return. Per league rules, no trade can be made official until the start of the new league year on March 14.29 minutes
4.Rams | LA Rams set to land Marcus Peters (USA Today Fantasy Sports) The Los Angeles Rams agreed to acquire CB Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, Feb. 23.

5.I'tavius Mathers: Waived by Jaguars (RotoWire) Mathers (spine) was waived by the Jaguars on Friday. Analysis: Mathers spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve after injuring his spine in August. It isn't clear where he stands on the health front at this juncture.53 minutes
6.Jaguars | Jags hand out front-office extensions (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Jacksonville Jaguars executive vice president Tom Coughlin, general manager David Caldwell and head coach Doug Marrone were given two-year contract extensions Friday, Feb. 23.1 hour
7.Marcus Peters: Traded to Rams (RotoWire) The Chiefs agreed to trade Peters to the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The deal won't officially go through until March 14, while the Chiefs are expected to receive a package of draft picks in return. It's a surprising move for a Kansas City team that could've kept Peters around for two more years on his current rookie deal, especially when considering the 2015 first-rounder has seven more interceptions than any other player in the league since 2015, including the playoffs. For comparison, only Hall-of-Fame safety Ed Reed had more interceptions (22) in his first three seasons than Peters' 21. The newly... (More)1 hour
8.Jags sign Doug Marrone to two-year exten... (Rotoworld) Jaguars signed coach Doug Marrone to a two-year extension through 2021. Analysis: Executive VP of football operations Tom Coughlin and GM Dave Caldwell have also agreed to two-year extensions. Marrone enjoyed a hugely successful 2017 season, leading Jacksonville to its first AFC title game since 1999. With excellent young talent on both sides of the ball (particularly on defense), the Jags should be a contender in the AFC for many years to come. This is Marrone's second head-coaching job following a previous stint in Buffalo.1 hour
9.Eagles moving on from Trey Burton (Rotoworld) According to Matt Lombardo of NJ.com, the Eagles are unlikely to re-sign free agent TE Trey Burton. Analysis: Burton was a backup in 2017 but played well when called upon, totaling 112 yards and three touchdowns in two games without Zach Ertz. He also threw a touchdown pass to Nick Foles on the famous Philly Special play in Super Bowl LII. The 26-year-old should catch on as a starter elsewhere.1 hour
10.Emmanuel Sanders: Nearing full recovery (RotoWire) Sanders (ankle) has resumed running and is nearing a full recovery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's going well, my ankle is recovering," Sanders said. "Right now, I feel like I'm 95 percent." Analysis: Sanders sustained a "major" sprained ankle and tibia contusion in Week 5 against the Giants and his recovery has been complicated by swelling, a limited range of motion and diminished strength, according to the doctor in charge of his rehabilitation. However, barring any setbacks, it sounds like he could be recovered in time for OTAs in late April or early May.1 hour
11.Report: Chiefs wanted Robert Quinn from ... (Rotoworld) According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs "were pushing to trade for" Rams OLB Robert Quinn in talks around CB Marcus Peters, but Quinn is unlikely to be part of the package. Analysis: Quinn, 28 in May, was once one of the most feared pass rushers in the sport after accumulating 40 sacks from 2012-2014, but he missed a bunch of time to injury in 2015 and 2016 before notching 8.5 sacks in his first year as a 3-4 outside linebacker under DC Wade Phillips last year. There's been some chatter the Rams could release him, which would clear over $11.4 million in cap space. ... (More)1 hour
12.Emmanuel Sanders' ankle at 95 percent (Rotoworld) Emmanuel Sanders said his ankle is at "95 percent." Analysis: Sanders battled a sprained ankle throughout 2017, missing four games and falling short of 1,000 yards for the first time in four seasons. He's been rehabbing the injury in Houston since the end of the season and appears to be making progress. "It's going well, my ankle is recovering," said Sanders. "It got damaged on a tackle and it lingered." The 30-year-old should be ready for OTAs in a couple of months.1 hour
13.Jaguars | Jacksonville parts ways with three (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Jacksonville Jaguars RB I'Tavius Mathers, WR Larry Pinkard and DB Jarrod Harper were released Friday, Feb. 23. Analysis: Jacksonville Jaguars RB I'Tavius Mathers, WR Larry Pinkard and DB Jarrod Harper were released Friday, Feb. 23.1 hour
14.Rams likely to move on from Trumaine Joh... (Rotoworld) The Rams will likely move on from free agent CB Trumaine Johnson following the team's acquisition of Marcus Peters. Analysis: The Rams assigned him the franchise tag for the second straight year in 2017, but never came close to reaching a long-term deal and will now let Johnson walk after acquiring Peters from Kansas City. Johnson regressed last season, earning PFF's No. 75 grade out of 120 qualifiers at cornerback. Despite this, the 28-year-old should be among the most coveted defensive backs on the market this winter.1 hour
15.Rams | Marcus Peters on the move? (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Kansas City Chiefs CB Marcus Peters is on the verge of being traded to the Los Angeles Rams, according to sources. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the teams are in the final stages of talks and a deal could be agreed to as early as Friday, Feb. 23.1 hour
16.Chiefs and Rams finalizing trade for CB Marcus Peters (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams are in the final stages of a trade that would send cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams. Analysis: We don't have the details quite yet, but this deal is apparently all but done. Peters has been one of the premier cornerbacks in the league for the last two years, but a divorce between him and the Chiefs seemed imminent after his benching in Week 14 last year. Peters hasn't been a shadow cornerback in his time with the Chiefs, sticking to the left side of the field, but it's unclear ... (More)1 hour
17.Report: Chiefs shipping Marcus Peters to... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chiefs and Rams are "in the final stages of talks" on a trade that will send CB Marcus Peters to Los Angeles. Analysis: Per Schefter, the deal is expected to be agreed to as early as Friday, barring an unexpected snag. Of course, the deal can't become official until the new league year opens on March 14, but it appears the Rams have their new No. 1 corner. With Trumaine Johnson set for free agency next month and no signs of a long-term deal, Peters will likely slide into his spot on defense. No. 2 CB Kayvon Webster is still recovering from a ... (More)2 hours
18.Chris Ivory: Released by Jaguars (RotoWire) Ivory was released by the Jaguars on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Ivory hasn't been the player Jacksonville thought he could be when they gave him a five-year, $32 million contract in the 2016 offseason, as the 2015 Pro-Bowler managed a 3.6 yards-per-carry average and just four touchdowns in two seasons. The Jaguars simply couldn't afford his price tag while also having the league's fourth-highest paid running back, Leonard Fournette, under contract, especially given Ivory's redundant playing style to Jacksonville's young workhorse. Releasing him saves the team roughly $3.68 million in cap space and leaves T.J. Yeldo... (More)2 hours
19.Steelers | Pittsburgh open to dealing Martavis Bryant? (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is reportedly on the trading block as the team is listening to potential deals for him, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.2 hours
20.Jaguars part ways with Chris Ivory (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Jacksonville Jaguars have released running back Chris Ivory. Analysis: The move saves the Jaguars more than $3 million in cap space. Ivory was considered a top-tier free agent running back just two years ago when he signed his five-year, $32 million dollar contract with the Jaguars. It was always going to end this way with a front-loaded contract, especially when you consider his inability to contribute on third down. The Jaguars will move forward with a lethal combination of Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon. As for I... (More)2 hours
21.Jags pink-slip Chris Ivory, clearing ove... (Rotoworld) Jaguars released RB Chris Ivory. Analysis: It was an expected move. Ivory turns 30 next month and fell out of favor in Jacksonville after the team drafted Leonard Fournette. Ivory opened last season as the No. 2, but he was quickly passed up by T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant. Ivory was inactive week in and week out at the end of the year. He missed multiple games to injury during his time with the Jaguars and averaged a pitiful 3.59 YPC on 229 rushing attempts. The move clears over $3.6 million in cap space.2 hours
22.Jaguars | Chris Ivory cut by Jacksonville (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory was released Friday, Feb. 23.2 hours
23.Dolphins | Vontae Davis meeting with Miami (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting with the Miami Dolphins on Friday, Feb. 23.2 hours
24.Dolphins hosting FA CB Vontae Davis on F... (Rotoworld) Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Dolphins on Friday. Analysis: Davis, of course, was drafted by the Dolphins with the 25th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He was traded by then-GM Jeff Ireland to the Colts in 2012 in one of the more famous scenes of HBO's Hard Knocks. Davis turns 30 in May and has now visited Miami, Oakland, San Fran, Buffalo, and Cleveland over the last two weeks. He should be coming to a decision in the near future.2 hours
25.Jameis Winston popped for careless drivi... (Rotoworld) Jameis Winston was cited for careless driving after being involved in a minor car accident last week. Analysis: He faces a $153 fine after rear-ending another vehicle, causing $4,000 worth of damage. Winston shouldn't face any discipline from the league.4 hours
26.Martellus Bennett not planning to retire... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Martellus Bennett wants to continue playing in 2018. Analysis: Bennett said in October that he planned to retire after the season, but that may have been part of his plan to get the Packers to release him. It worked, and Bennett was claimed off waivers by the Patriots. He ended up on I.R. with shoulder and hamstring issues in November. Due a $2 million roster bonus next month, the Patriots have a decision to make. Cutting Bennett would save them $6.2 million, but Bennett may be needed if Rob Gronkowski actually retires.4 hours
27.Jaguars release RB Chris Ivory (FFToday) The Jaguars are done with Chris Ivory. The team on Friday released the veteran running back after two up-and-down seasons in Jacksonville, saving the team $3.6 million in salary-cap room, per OverTheCap.com.4 hours

29.Panthers could 'overhaul' WR group this ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's David Newton believes the Panthers "could overhaul" their wide receiver group this offseason.4 hours
30.Jameis Winston: Involved in car wreck (RotoWire) Winston was involved in a car wreck recently and ultimately was cited for careless driving, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Analysis: Despite Winston being partially at fault for the wreck, a punishment from the NFL is not expected and he escaped uninjured. The 24-year-old will head into the 2018 season on the last remaining year of his contract.4 hours
31.Bengals OT Jake Fisher medically cleared (Rotoworld) Bengals RT Jake Fisher (dysrhythmia) has been medically cleared for football activities. Analysis: Fisher was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat back in November. The former second-round pick was getting demolished as the starting right tackle and was one of Pro Football Focus' worst tackles when he went down in Week 9. Fisher has one year left on his deal and won't be guaranteed a spot.4 hours
32.TEN, CAR, NO, CHI interested in Landry t... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport mentioned the Titans, Panthers, Saints, and Bears as teams that could be interested in a trade for franchise player Jarvis Landry. Analysis: The Titans were the first team out of RapSheet's mouth, while the other three clubs were kind of thrown out there at the end. Tennessee GM Jon Robinson has had a penchant for big trades since taking the job and needs a slot receiver after Eric Decker completely flopped as a free-agent pickup. The Titans do have sophomore Taywan Taylor as an option, but Landry would give Marcus Mariota a reliable safety blanket with Corey... (More)4 hours
33.Seahawks likelier to extend than trade T... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are more likely to give contract-year FS Earl Thomas an extension than trade him.4 hours
34.Report: PIT listening to offers for Mart... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers are "listening to potential deals" for Martavis Bryant. Analysis: Rapoport made it a point to say the Steelers aren't necessarily shopping Bryant, but it sounds like they're all ears to offers. Bryant made a big stink midway through last season when he felt he wasn't playing enough, and the Steelers then made him a healthy scratch for Week 8. Bryant quit the social media complaining but was a disappointment with a 52-681-4 line. JuJu Smith-Schuster has emerged as the Steelers' No. 2 wideout. Bryant has one year left on his dea...

35.Seahawks | Earl Thomas more likely for new deal (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas is more likely to see a new contract than a trade, according to sources.5 hours
36.Steelers | Martavis Bryant the subject of talks (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant isn't being shopped by the team, but they are fielding offers on him.6 hours
37.Buccaneers | Jameis Winston uninjured in car accident (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was not injured in a car accident last week in which his truck rear-ended another vehicle outside of Tampa.6 hours
38.Saquon Barkley could fall on draft day (Dynasty League Football) MMQB author Peter King admits that while Saquon Barkley is elite, the law of supply and demand may hurt is value on draft day. Analysis: The MMQB is a great read and this edition is particularly good. King suggests that there exists too much need at other premium positions for most teams to pull the string on Barkley near the top of the draft. Consider last year's premier running backs and their drafted positions: Dalvin Cook (41), Joe Mixon (48), Alvin Kamara (67) and Kareem Hunt (86). Kamara and Hunt were second round selections that f... (More)10 hours

41.Dolphins | Kenyan Drake third-most elusive RB in '17 (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake ranked as the third-most elusive running back under an NFL "Next Gen Stats" metric that measured yardage gained after defenders got within a yard of the ball-carrier. Drake finished third (4.55 yards), behind only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (4.76) and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (4.63).12 hours
42.Stephen Jones: Lawrence will be Cowboy i... (Rotoworld) Speaking Thursday, Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones emphasized that free agent DE Demarcus Lawrence will be a Cowboy in 2018, either via a long-term deal or the franchise tag. Analysis: "We won't let D-Law not be a Dallas Cowboy next year," were Jones' exact words. NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reported earlier Thursday that the sides have yet to engage in long-term talks but will do so at the Combine. The deadline to apply the tag is March 6. After that, the deadline to reach a long-term agreement is July 16.18 hours

46.Bucs won't tender RFA Adjei-Barimah (Rotoworld) The Bucs will not tender restricted free agent CB Jude Adjei-Barimah a contract, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Analysis: A 2014 UDFA, Glanton made the first four starts of his career in 2017. He spent the final few weeks of the season on injured reserve with a broken leg. Glanton will hunt for reserve/special teams work in free agency.19 hours
48.Rams | Lamarcus Joyner more likely for tag? (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent S Lamarcus Joyner appears to be the more likely candidate for the franchise tag than impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins, in the opinion of NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.19 hours

51.Gary Barnidge to play in 2018? (FantasyPros) NFL Insider Alex Marvez is reporting that free agent TE Gary Barnidge will attempt to play in 2018. Analysis: Although Barnidge didn't play in 2017, the 32-year-old tight end intends to play next season. Per Marvez, Barnidge elected to sit out in an attempt to get a better deal on the open market. And in 2018, he could get just that, especially since he had a year off to rest the bumps and bruises on his aging body.21 hours
52.Cowboys | Talks with DeMarcus Lawrence to heat up (USA Today Fantasy Sports) The Dallas Cowboys have not had long-term extension talks with impending free-agent DE Demarcus Lawrence at this point, but the two sides are expected to talk during the NFL Scouting Combine.21 hours
53.Julius Thomas will be cut (FantasyPros) Miami Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero is reporting that the team is will release TE Julius Thomas this offseason. Analysis: It comes as no surprise that the Dolphins will move on from Thomas this offseason. Per reports, they are in line to release him prior to the March 14 start to the new league year in a move that will save the Dolphins $6.6 million in cap space. Initially signing Thomas in an attempt to rekindle the old flame he had with head coach Adam Gase with the Broncos -- Thomas scored 24 TDs while Gase was the Broncos OC back in 2013-2014 -- the 29-ye...

54.Adam Vinatieri re-signs with Colts (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Indianapolis Colts and K Adam Vinatieri have agreed to a one-year deal on Thursday. Analysis: Vinatieri, 45, signed a one-year deal worth $3.265 million Thursday to remain with the Colts for his 13th season with the club -- and his 20th season as a pro. Chasing the league's all-time scoring record currently held by Hall of Famer Morten Anderson -- Vinatieri needs 57 points to tie the record and 58 to break it -- Vinatieri should once again be one of the most consistent placekickers in the league in 2018. Barring injury, the record... (More)21 hours
55.Tyrod Taylor to be retained by Bills? (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Buffalo Bills aren't planning on releasing QB Tyrod Taylor. Analysis: Rapoport also added that the Bills aren't "afraid" to pay Taylor his $6 million roster bonus due on the third day of the new league year (March 17). And although Taylor struggled at times throughout his tenure in Buffalo, he is 22-20 in his career as a starter and has led the Bills to their first playoff berth since the Doug Flutie and Rob Johnson era. As a result of his mild success, the Bills likely feel that he's worth at least a mid-to-late round... (More)21 hours
56.Steelers expect to lose Chris Hubbard in... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Steelers expect to lose free agent OL Chris Hubbard on the open market. Analysis: The Steelers believe Hubbard can "start elsewhere" and will get a "quality contract." Capable of playing all five positions along the offensive line, Hubbard was forced into 10 starts in 2017 with RT Marcus Gilbert missing time with injury and suspension. Gilbert earned replacement-level marks from Pro Football Focus, with a few awful games skewing his overall ratings. He turns 27 in April.22 hours
57.Gary Barnidge hopes to continue career (Rotoworld) 32-year-old free agent TE Gary Barnidge hopes to continue his career despite going unsigned in 2017. Analysis: Barnidge says he had offers to play, but that they weren't good enough. He was also collecting $700,000 from the Browns, a factor he said weighed into his decision-making. Barnidge is still less than three years removed from a 1,000-yard campaign.22 hours
58.Rams more likely to tag Joyner than Watk... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports the Rams are more likely to use the franchise tag on DB Lamarcus Joyner than Sammy Watkins. Analysis: Formerly the Rams' slot corner, Joyner shifted full time to safety in 2017 and had by far the best season of his career. Joyner picked off the first three passes of his career, forced a fumble and earned high all-around marks from Pro Football Focus. He turns 28 in November.22 hours
59.Nick Folk: Let go by Tampa Bay (RotoWire) The Buccaneers released Folk on Thursday. Analysis: With Folk set to become an unrestricted free agent March 14 and the Buccaneers having no intention of re-signing him, Tampa Bay likely chose to cut the kicker loose so he could get an early start on finding work. The 33-year-old won the Buccaneers' kicking job in training camp last fall but held onto the role for only four games after missing seven kicks (five field goals, two extra points) on only 20 attempts. Rather than releasing him in favor of replacement Patrick Murray, the Buccaneers shifted Folk to injured reserve while he dealt with a minor knee injury that he's since recove... (More)22 hours
60.Tyrod Taylor: Expected to stick with Buffalo (RotoWire) The Bills aren't planning on cutting Taylor (concussion) during the offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Buffalo had considered getting rid of Taylor last offseason before he agreed to a restructured two-year contract, but that hardly gave the 28-year-old much job security heading into 2017. Another parting of ways seemed imminent after a healthy Taylor was benched in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman in the Week 11 game against the Chargers, though the veteran quickly recaptured the starting gig and helped lead the Bills to the postseason for the first time since 1999. Taylor's shortcomings as a passer were plainly... (More)22 hours
61.NFL | Gary Barnidge looking to play in 2018 (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) said plans to play in 2018 and will look for the right opportunity during free agency. He said he received interest this past season but did not like the offers from teams.22 hours
62.Dolphins | Ndamukong Suh has big cap number (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Miami Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh is scheduled to count $26.1 million against the salary cap next season. The team would save $3.9 million in cap space if they decided to trade Suh or could save $17 million if they wanted to designate him a post-June 1 cut.22 hours
63.Report: Jets won't give Cousins 'blank c... (Rotoworld) The New York Daily News reports the Jets would "absolutely love" to sign free agent Kirk Cousins, but that they will not "give him a blank check." Analysis: Reporter Manish Mehta calls the idea that the Jets would give Cousins $60 million in the first year of his contract "beyond ludicrous." Mehta says the Jets "are not going to try to bring (Cousins) aboard by any means necessary." The Jets have roughly $90 million in cap space, but the $60 million number was always fanciful, as a player's second-year cap hit must be at least 50 percent of the fir... (More)22 hours

68.Cowboys to talk with Lawrence at Combine (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reports the Cowboys have yet to engage in long-term talks with free agent DE Demarcus Lawrence but plan to do so at the Combine. Analysis: This is standard operating procedure. The franchise tag will be slapped on Lawrence some time in the next two weeks, giving the sides until July 16 to hammer out a long-term agreement. Per Pelissero, Lawrence is seeking "at least" $17 million per season. That's what Olivier Vernon got in 2016.22 hours

71.Bills | Tyrod Taylor not expected to be cut (USA Today Fantasy Sports) The Buffalo Bills are not planning to release QB Tyrod Taylor at this time and are open to paying his $6 million roster bonus in March. The team could still try to trade Taylor this offseason depending on what they do at the position.22 hours
72.Allen Robinson: Resumes jogging (RotoWire) Robinson posted a video Wednesday on his personal Twitter account that showed him jogging at about half speed on the field. Analysis: As of early January, Robinson had been limited to running on an anti-gravity treadmill, so his activity Wednesday amounts to a step forward, if only an incremental one. The wideout previously stated that he's experienced no setbacks from a torn ACL suffered in Week 1 of last season and thinks he'll be able to pass a physical by mid-March, when free agency will open. Assuming the Jaguars concur with Robinson's assessment of his health, expect the team to do its best to retain the 24-year-old, either by s... (More)22 hours
73.Lamar Jackson drawing Kordell Stewart co... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero has spoken with two scouts who have compared Louisville QB Lamar Jackson to Kordell Stewart. Analysis: "Slash," as he became known, was the No. 60 overall pick of the 1995 draft. He played receiver for two seasons before taking over at quarterback his third year in the league. He was used all over the field, never settling in as a franchise quarterback. Commenting on Jackson's comparisons to Michael Vick, Pelissero reports Vick was viewed as a better passer coming out of Virginia Tech. Our guess is that Jackson will be drafted as a pure quarterback, and early on draft weekend, at that.23 hours
74.Report: BUF not planning to cut Tyrod Ta... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Bills are not planning to release Tyrod Taylor "at this point." Analysis: "At this point, it doesn't seem like they're going to cut him without knowing who his replacement will be," Rapoport sad on NFL Network. "The Bills are OK with paying a $6 million roster bonus to keep him on the roster." That bonus is due on the third day of the new league year. Rapsheet does report the Bills remain open to trading Taylor. Essentially, the report changes nothing. There is wiggle-room wording leaving open the possibility of Taylor's re... (More)23 hours
75.Dolphins could designate Suh post-June 1... (Rotoworld) The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have not ruled out designating Ndamukong Suh a post-June 1 release. Analysis: Plugged-in reporter Armando Salguero considers this the "most likely" scenario if the Dolphins decide to move on. It's actually possible one of the league's many cap-flush teams takes the trade bait on Suh, which would create $3.9 million in space for the Dolphins. Designating him a post-June 1 cut would free up $17 million. Now 31, Suh remained one of the league's best defensive players in 2017 but carries an absurd $26.1 million cap number, the third-highest in f... (More)23 hours

78.Browns | New starting RB expected in Cleveland (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Cleveland Browns impending free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell is not expected to be retained. ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi believes the Browns' starting running back in 2018 will be a high draft pick.23 hours
79.Josh Gordon: Will be exclusive rights free agent (RotoWire) Gordon will be an exclusive rights free agent rather than a restricted free agent this offseason, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Gordon, whose return to the Browns on Dec. 3 against the Chargers marked his first NFL action in nearly three years, finished the past campaign with five appearances, which wasn't enough for him to accrue a full season of service time. The extensive time Gordon has missed due to suspension will keep him under club control through at least 2018 and prevent him from negotiating with other teams this spring. Assuming he can stay on the straight and narrow during the offseason, Gordon, who caught 18... (More)1 day
80.Panthers could sell for $2.3-$2.8 billio... (Rotoworld) The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers could be sold for between $2.3-$2.8 billion. Analysis: The Observer reports "multiple deep-pocketed individuals are being mentioned as potential bidders." Various outlets have reported multiple billionaires as expressing interest. $2 billion is a good baseline for any NFL team. $2.3-$2.8B would be an extremely good number for Jerry Richardson and his minority owners, as well as a vote of confidence in the league's long-term health.1 day
81.Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson not being investigated (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson's case involving his vehicle that was allegedly found wrecked will bullets and marijuana is inactive. Tampa police said there were no witnesses or evidence to place the driver behind the wheel at the time of the wreck.1 day
82.DeSean Jackson: No longer under investigation (RotoWire) Tampa police are no longer investigating a Dec. 24 incident involving a car registered to Jackson, Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com reports. Analysis: Jackson's Chevy Silverado was left abandoned at the scene of a crash on Christmas Eve, with police finding marijuana and hollow-point bullets in the vehicle. A spokesman for the Tampa Police Department said that because there weren't any witnesses or other evidence to place Jackson or another driver behind the wheel at the time of the crash, the case will become inactive. Jackson isn't set to face any discipline from the NFL or the Buccaneers and should be in store for a normal offseason aft... (More)1 day
83.Adam Vinatieri: Officially re-signs on one-year deal (RotoWire) The Colts and Vinatieri agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. Analysis: Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis first reported Wednesday that the two parties were working on an extension, and now Vinatieri's return for a 23rd NFL season and 13th in Indianapolis is official. With a 29-for-34 mark on field-goal attempts last season -- including a 5-for-6 showing from 50-plus yards -- Vinatieri showed no signs of decline despite turning 45 years old in December. Assuming he's able to maintain the accuracy he's displayed in recent years, Vinatieri could be in store for an uptick in the 10... (More)1 day
84.Case involving DeSean Jackson's car inac... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jenna Laine reports the case involving a wrecked DeSean Jackson vehicle that was found with bullets and marijuana is "inactive." Analysis: A vehicle registered to Jackson was found wrecked on Christmas Eve, but Jackson told police he wasn't driving, and that neither the bullets nor marijuana belonged to him. Police are not pursuing the case because they "don't have any witnesses or evidence to place the driver behind the wheel at the time of the crash." It sounds like a dead issue for the 31-year-old wideout.1 day

86.Panthers K Gano candidate for franchise ... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers could franchise tag free agent K Graham Gano. Analysis: That's instead of fellow free agent OG Andrew Norwell. As indicated by the name, the franchise tag was conceived for "franchise"-type players but just as often it is used for players like Gano. Going on 31, Gano has been the Panthers' kicker since midway through 2012. He converted 29-of-30 field goal attempts in 2017.1 day

92.Robert Nkemdiche getting a 'clean slate' (Rotoworld) Cardinals DT Robert Nkemdiche is getting a "clean slate" with the new coaching staff. Analysis: "We are going to start from scratch so he’s got a clean slate," DL coach and Nash Bridges star Don Johnson said. "But, he’s got to stay on track." A first-round pick in 2016, Nkemdiche has played just 335 snaps on defense while falling in and out of the old coaching staff's doghouse over two seasons. He did flash last preseason before suffering a calf injury, however, and has the talent to be a contributor.1 day
93.Deontae Skinner: Waived by Giants (RotoWire) The Giants waived Skinner (hamstring) on Thursday. Analysis: Skinner finished the past season on injured reserve after suffering a setback with his hamstring in late November. He was set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Giants will forfeit their rights to retain the linebacker and instead elect him to sign elsewhere in advance of Organized Team Activities.1 day
94.Ryan Shazier: Vows to continue playing (RotoWire) Shazier (spine) said Tuesday in a guest appearance on teammate Roosevelt Nix's podcast that he's been rehabbing five days a week and plans to resume his football career, Joe Rutter of TribLive.com reports. Analysis: The podcast appearance marked Shazier's first public comments regarding the spinal-cord injury he sustained Dec. 4 against the Bengals that required stabilization surgery. The linebacker was hospitalized for two months following the procedure but has recently began working out at the Steelers' facility under the watchful eye of rehab therapists. While Shazier has made it clear that he intends to continue playing football, ... (More)1 day

97.Charles Sims: Role likely same if retained (RotoWire) Sims, who will become an unrestricted free agent March 14, would likely remain in a change-of-pace role next season if retained by the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Sims saw even less action on the ground than in previous seasons in 2017, despite the since-released Doug Martin having endured a three-game suspension, injury and ultimately, a benching. The former West Virginia standout earned a career-low 21 carries, though he did post the second-best reception (35) and receiving yardage (249) totals of his four NFL seasons. Given that Sims has never logged more than 107 totes in any season as a professional, it... (More)1 day
98.Peyton Barber: Candidate to replace released Martin (RotoWire) Barber is one of the Buccaneers' top internal options to replace Doug Martin, who was released Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The 23-year-old Barber is technically an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, but it's fully expected he'll be retained in 2018. Barber established career bests across the stat sheet in his second season and already displaced Martin as the top backfield option for the final five games. Despite poor blocking in front on him, Barber often proved adept at finding space while Martin failed to do so, demonstrating the power and efficiency befitting of a lead back by averaging between 4.1 ... (More)1 day
99.Jacquizz Rodgers: Candidate to replace released Martin (RotoWire) Rodgers is considered an internal option to replace the since-released Doug Martin as the Buccaneers' lead back in 2018, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Rodgers finished the 2017 campaign with just 73 total touches from scrimmage, a modest workload considering he had been the de facto lead back for the first three games of the season while Martin finished serving a suspension. Given his ability to contribute on offense and special teams along with his reasonable $1.6 million cap hit for 2018, Rodgers seems likely to return to Tampa Bay during the upcoming season and could get the opportunity to compete with Peyton Barber fo...

100.Colts bring back Vinatieri on one-year d... (Rotoworld) Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a one-year contract. Analysis: Vinatieri had made it clear he wanted to return for his 23rd season, so it was really only a matter of time. The future Hall of Famer will enter the season just 57 points behind Morten Andersen on the All-Time points list, a gap he should be able to close if he stays healthy -- he notched 109 last season.1 day
