1.Dynasty | NFL Draft: 1.01 – ARI Kyler Murray, QB (Dynasty League Football) The Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: At 5’10”, Murray projects as the shortest NFL starter. In fact, no other quarterback other than Seattle’s Russell Wilson stand less that 6’ in height. As a one-year phenom at Oklahoma, the Heisman trophy winner posted a ridiculous 4,361 passing yards, 1,001 rushing yards and 54 touchdowns with just seven interceptions, apparently leaving his baseball dreams in the dust to pursue an NFL career in the process. Murray prese... (More)7 minutes
2.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill has recording handed over (Dynasty League Football) A recording allegedly incriminating Tyreek Hill for child abuse has been acquired by a TV Station in Kansas City. Analysis: Just when this story seemed to be on the shelf, word has leaked out that KCTV5 in Kansas City has acquired a potentially explosive recording of Hill taking responsibility for injuries to his girlfriend's son. If this proves to be credible, this could have major ramifications to Hill's career. The Chiefs have been somewhat inconsistent with their handling of players with off the field trouble (they cut Kareem Hunt... (More)7 minutes
3.Heisman winner Kyler Murray goes 1st to ... (Rotoworld) Cardinals selected Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Murray (5’10/207) turned down the Oakland A’s after Billy Beane’s team made him the No. 9 overall pick in last year’s MLB draft, following his heart to the NFL after earning the 2018 Heisman Trophy by completing 69% of his passes at an absurd 11.6 yards per attempt with a 42:7 TD-INT ratio and 12 additional rushing scores as Baker Mayfield’s successor. Despite his smallish build, only five of Murray’s 2018 passes were batted down, and he generates stunning ball velocity with a lightning-quick release and multi-arm-angle rep... (More)12 minutes
4.Disturbing audio of Tyreek Hill released (FantasyPros) New and disturbing audio of Tyreek Hill discussing his son's broken arm has been released. Analysis: Just one day removed from learning that the District Attorney would not file charges against Hill in a "domestic dispute," a disturbing audio recording has been released of Tyreek Hill and his fiancée discussing their son's broken arm. His fiancée asks Hill why his son says "daddy did it." Hill also describes his disciplinary methods as punching his son in the chest and using a belt. When pressed by his fiancée, he tells her "you need to be terrified of me." The DA has made it clear that the investigation could be reopened wit... (More)13 minutes
5.Kyler Murray drafted first overall by Arizona Cardinals in 2019 NFL Draft (FantasyPros) The Arizona Cardinals drafted Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 draft. Analysis: Murray goes to the Cardinals just one year after they drafted Josh Rosen. Rosen is now almost certain to be traded at some point during the draft, possibly even before the first round is over. The Cardinals and their new coaching staff have a lot of work to do in order to rebuild (they drafted first overall for a reason) their roster, but Murray will step right in and have David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk as playmakers on the offensive side of the ball.13 minutes
6.Chris Long to PHI: Plan like I won't be ... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt reports Eagles DE Chris Long told the front office to "plan like I won't be back." Analysis: "[Football is] too hard on my body, my family, on everyone else to kind of go through it for a role that’s far from perfect," Long said on the Philadelphia Enquirer's Eagles podcast. "I told [the team] this maybe a month ago: 'Hey, listen, plan like I’m not going to be back." The Eagles want Long to take a pay cut prior to his $2 million roster bonus hitting his bank account in May, but the back-to-back Super Bowl champ is contemplating reti... (More)27 minutes
7.No deal expected for Chris Harris on Thu... (Rotoworld) 9News' Mike Klis reports no deal for Broncos CB Chris Harris is expected on Thursday. Analysis: There's apparently still uncertainty among the front office whether Harris will even be traded. GM John Elway has confirmed multiple times throughout the offseason the team's plans to negotiate an extension with Harris, but the soon-to-be 30-year-old All-Pro has remained steadfast in wanting to see the actual fruit from his body of work. It's likely Harris skips mandatory minicamp if a deal isn't worked out soon. Don't sleep on Harris being traded Friday morning to a CB-needy team that went in... (More)43 minutes
8.Recording incriminates Hill in abuse cas... (Rotoworld) CBS Kansas City has obtained audio allegedly recorded by Tyreek Hill's girlfriend that appears to incriminate him in the couple's child abuse case.1 hour
9.Report: Jets and Raiders have discussed ... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Connor Hughes reports the Jets and Raiders have discussed a trade involving the Nos. 3 and 4 picks. Analysis: Hughes also confirms the Bills have also reached out about the No. 3 pick. Buffalo's target is believed to be Quinnen Williams. It is uncertain who the Raiders might be targeting.2 hours
10.Bucky Hodges: Cut loose ahead of draft (RotoWire) Hodges was waived by the Steelers on Thursday. Analysis: Hodges spent the 2018 season on the Steelers' practice squad and re-upped on a reserve/future contract in January, but he's now being let go just hours before the start of the 2019 NFL Draft. The 2017 sixth-rounder will presumably try and mix in with the incoming class of undrafted free agents as teams try to fill out their 90-man rosters ahead of training camp.2 hours
11.Report: Cards have discussed three playe... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Cardinals have "had discussions today" with Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams' player reps. Analysis: Per Silver, the Cardinals are "still keeping their plans close to the vest." Murray has been the longtime favorite, but there has been a little more smoke than usual that the Cardinals' private plans do not match the public reality. We will find out in a little over two hours.2 hours
12.Report: Devin Bush unlikely to fall past... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Michigan LB Devin Bush believes he won't fall past the Bengals at No. 11. Analysis: This could explain where reports that the Steelers and Falcons are entertaining a trade up could be coming from. The Packers at No. 12 also have the need.3 hours
13.Jalen Ramsey: Locked up through 2020 (RotoWire) The Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option on Ramsey's rookie contract, Tad Dickman of the team's official site reports. Analysis: The Jaguars kicked off the offseason program April 15 without Ramsay, who opted to stay away from voluntary workouts and instead continue his training in Nashville. With a deadline of May 3 to pick up the aforementioned option, it was only a matter of time before Jacksonville made the simple decision. Ramsay has back-to-back Pro-Bowl bids under his belt due to superior coverage abilities, including 44 passes defended and nine interceptions through three campaigns.4 hours
14.Quinnen Williams drawing heavy interest from Buffalo Bills (FantasyPros) Former Alabama DT Quinnen Williams has drawn a lot of interest from the Buffalo Bills leading up to the NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams, widely regarded as a top-3 prospect in this year's draft class, could end up a Buffalo Bill. The New York Jets currently own the No. 3 pick in the draft, but they are very willing to trade down. The Bills own the No. 9 pick, and they are reportedly interested in trading up for Williams if he is available. He is not a lock to be available at three, with the Cardinals (No. 1) and 49ers (No. 2) still in play to select the talented defensive lineman.4 hours
15.CLE could trade back into first for Simm... (Rotoworld) CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns could trade back into the first round if Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons falls. Analysis: It is our second Simmons blurb in two hours. The Miami Herald believes the Dolphins could trade down from No. 13 with a Simmons pick in mind. Simmons is recovering from a torn ACL and has a disturbing off-the-field incident in his past. Browns GM John Dorsey rather infamously pays little attention to such matters.4 hours
16.Ben Roethlisberger: Gets $67.5M guaranteed in new deal (RotoWire) Roethlisberger will be guaranteed $67.5 million through the 2021 season after agreeing Wednesday with the Steelers on a two-year, $68 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Roethlisberger will earn $12 million in salary in 2019 before the extension goes into effect next March at the start of the new league year. Upon putting pen to paper on the deal, Roethlisberger will receive $37.5 million as part of a signing bonus, with another $30 million guaranteed in the event of an injury. The extension essentially ensures that Roethlisberger, who turned 37 in March, will finish his career with the only franchise ... (More)4 hours
17.Report: Dolphins could target Jeffery Si... (Rotoworld) The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have had "serious talks" about drafting Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons. Analysis: Any move would apparently not come at No. 13 but a trade down. There have been multiple Thursday reports about the Dolphins' interest in moving down. Simmons, who is recovering from a torn ACL and torn meniscus, is likely to miss the entire 2019 season. He also has a disturbing incident of violence against a woman in his past. It would not be surprising were Simmons to fall to day two.4 hours
18.Report: Bills could trade up for DT Will... (Rotoworld) CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Bills could trade up to No. 3 overall with the intention of selecting Alabama DT Quinnen Williams. Analysis: The Jets own the No. 3 pick. La Canfora's report is via "two general managers." Ace beat writer Joe Buscaglia "wouldn't doubt it." The Bills own the No. 9 selection, meaning any move would be extremely expensive. Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have established an extremely aggressive culture, however. It is something to watch for.4 hours
19.Report: PIT considering Thursday trade u... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers are "one of the teams making calls to potentially move up the draft board." Analysis: The Steelers have needs all over their defense. In particular, they could be considering a linebacker. Michigan's Devin Bush and LSU's Devin White are both candidates to go in the top 10. The Steelers are all the way back at No. 20, so that kind of move up would cost a pretty penny.5 hours
20.Jags officially exercise Ramsey's option... (Rotoworld) Jaguars exercised CB Jalen Ramsey's fifth-year team option for 2020. Analysis: Playing hurt last season, Ramsey's play fell off from his extraordinary 2017, but he remained one of the league's top corners. There is every reason to believe that will remain the case heading into his age-25 campaign. Despite occasional tension with the team, Ramsey should eventually sign a mega extension with the Jags.5 hours
21.Report: Raiders could attempt Bosa trade... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Raiders are considering trading up for Ohio State DE Nick Bosa. Analysis: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that the Raiders could make a "surprise" move. This would certainly qualify. It is not a guarantee that Bosa is even the first defensive lineman off the board, with Alabama's Quinnen Williams supposedly still in the running for the No. 1 pick.5 hours
22.Report: G-Men could target WVU's Will Gr... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports West Virginia QB Will Grier could be an option for the Giants in a trade back into the first round if they miss out on Drew Lock and Daniel Jones. Analysis: That's the Teddy Bridgewater plan. Grier seems to be the No. 5 quarterback in the draft's unofficial consensus ranks. At 24, Grier is elderly for a prospect, but his accuracy is arguably the tops in this year's class.5 hours
23.Report: Rosen more likely to be dealt Th... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter considers Josh Rosen more likely to be traded on Friday than Thursday. Analysis: Per Schefter, the teams to watch are the Chargers, Dolphins and Giants. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported earlier Thursday that GM Steve Keim will not force a trade on Thursday. A deal Friday would still allow for 2019 day-two picks to be dealt, while 2020 would also be on the table.6 hours
24.Report: Missouri's Lock on the Giants' r... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Missouri QB Drew Lock will be drafted on Thursday evening, and that he is on the Giants' radar. Analysis: There has been increasing chatter that Lock could be the No. 2 quarterback off the board behind Kyler Murray. The Giants own the No. 6 pick but might be more inclined to take the Lock plunge at No. 17. Lock offers a monstrous ceiling but also a concerning floor.6 hours
25.Cards tell Quinnen Williams he could be ... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals have told Alabama DT Quinnen Williams that he is still in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick. Analysis: There has been small but persistent chatter that the Cardinals are not as locked in on Oklahoma's Kyler Murray as the media consensus would lead you to believe. We are still having trouble buying it. The NFL goes to great lengths to keep the No. 1 overall pick secret. The body of evidence still strongly suggests it will be Murray.6 hours
26.Report: WSH divided on which QB to draft (Rotoworld) ESPN's Dianna Russini reports the Redskins remain divided on which quarterback to target in the first round on Thursday, with Daniel Snyder and GM Bruce Allen favoring Dwayne Haskins but others wanting Daniel Jones. Analysis: The Redskins should ... listen to Snyder and Allen? If true, it is truly incredible that a team could come down to draft day and still be this split on a decision they have had months to make. Of course, if it was going to be anyone, it would be the Redskins. They are going to do it live on Thursday evening.6 hours
27.Tim Jernigan: Returning to Philadelphia (RotoWire) Jernigan agreed Thursday to re-join the Eagles on a one-year contract, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports, Analysis: The Eagles let Jernigan hit free agency at the start of the offseason, unwilling to pay the defensive tackle an $11 million base salary in 2019 following a season in which he was limited to three games by a back injury. However, it seems the two sides were able to reach agreement on a more team-friendly deal and now Jernigan is back in the fold for another year before getting another chance to try his hand in free agency again next season. While it seems likely that Malik Jackson and Fletcher ... (More)7 hours
28.Report: Texans open to trading Clowney (Rotoworld) ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Texans are open to trading unsigned franchise player Jadeveon Clowney. Analysis: The sides are reportedly nowhere close to a long-term agreement, so perhaps the Texans are willing to pull a Frank Clark and move on for something now instead of nothing next offseason. Clowney's injury history is likely what is stalling talks in Houston and would complicate any potential trade effort.7 hours
29.Josh Rosen a trade target for the Miami Dolphins? (FantasyPros) Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has drawn serious interest from the Miami Dolphins as a potential trade target. Analysis: Rosen has been linked to teams such as the Giants, Patriots, and Redskins in trade rumors over the past several weeks, though the Dolphins have emerged as serious contenders to acquire the former 10th overall pick. Miami currently owns the 13th, 48th, and 78th overall picks in the first three rounds of this year's draft, and it is widely believed that the team may be able to trade for Rosen without having to give up its first round selection. Rosen's potential trade hinges on the Cardinals selecting Oklahoma ... (More)7 hours
30.Report: Sweat's heart issue was misdiagn... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat's heart issue was misdiagnosed at the Combine, and that additional testing revealed no problem. Analysis: Sweat tore up the Combine, but his "heart issue" ended up dominating the discussion. In the intervening months, he has reportedly fallen off many draft boards. At one point viewed as a likely day-one pick, Sweat is not attending Thursday's first round in Nashville. Perhaps he could now sneak back into the first 32 picks. It, of course, is also possible that this is Sweat's agent getting out a too-rosy 11th hour report.7 hours
31.Schefter: MIA, NYG only teams talking Ro... (Rotoworld) Speaking on WEEI, ESPN's Adam Schefter said the Dolphins and Giants are the only teams who have talked to the Cardinals about trading for Josh Rosen in recent weeks. Analysis: "Period. End of story," Schefter said. The reporter did add the Chargers inquired about a month ago, but they are no longer interested. Of course, other teams could get back into the mix if Arizona lowers their asking price, which they might be forced to do as Thursday afternoon rolls along. Rosen's already diminished trade value will take a big hit if (when) the Cardinals select Kyler Murray with the No.... (More)7 hours
32.Eagles bring back DT Timmy Jernigan (Rotoworld) Eagles re-signed DT Timmy Jernigan to a one-year contract. Analysis: Philly declined Jernigan's $11 million option back in March, but the defensive tackle did not find much interest on the open market. He returns to the Eagles for what is likely a much lower salary on something of a prove-it deal. Coming off an injury-ruined season, Jernigan is a decent bet to rehab his value before hitting the market again next spring.8 hours
33.PFT: 49ers shopping DL Solomon Thomas (Rotoworld) Pro Football Talk reports the 49ers are shopping DL Solomon Thomas. Analysis: The only argument against the 49ers selecting Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams, generally believed to be the two best players in the draft, at No. 2 is the fact they have spent three first-round picks on the defensive line in the last four seasons. Thomas was the No. 3 overall selection back in 2017, but he has struggled to just four sacks in two years. Perhaps a new situation would jump-start his career.8 hours
34.Ex-NFL DT Roy Miller arrested for child ... (Rotoworld) Ex-NFL DT Roy Miller was arrested Wednesday for child abuse. Analysis: Miller was also arrested in 2017 for domestic battery. The 31-year-old has been out of the league since 2017.9 hours
35.Dolphins among most interested in moving... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Dolphins are among the teams most interested in trading down Thursday night. Analysis: Pelissero also mentions the Jets, Lions, Seahawks, and Rams. Scheduled to pick at No. 13, the Dolphins are in an interesting spot because Washington (15) has been heavily linked with quarterbacks in the last several days. If a team wants to ensure they land someone like Missouri QB Drew Lock, jumping Washington makes sense. In the midst of a full rebuild, the Dolphins need as many picks as possible.9 hours
36.Rams getting calls about No. 31 overall ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams have already received calls about the No. 31 overall pick. Analysis: First rounders come with the added value of a fifth-year option, making the final few picks on Thursday more valuable than they once were. Last year, the Ravens traded up to the No. 32 pick to select Lamar Jackson, and it would not be surprising to see something similar happen this year if a quarterback slides.9 hours
37.'People could be surprised' by No. 1 pic... (Rotoworld) "Cardinals sources" told NFL Network's Michael Silver "people could be surprised" by the No. 1 overall pick. Analysis: Kyler Murray has been seen as a near lock for the top selection since the Combine, so a surprise pick would have to come from somewhere else. Silver reports the Cardinals believe Murray, Nick Bosa, and Quinnen Williams are the top options available, and it seems like Bosa and Williams are atop most draft boards. If the Cardinals have Murray anywhere close to the other two, he has to be the pick. Quarterback is just that valuable.10 hours
38.PFT: WAS has 'no real desire' to trade u... (Rotoworld) Pro Football Talk reports Washington has "no real desire" to trade up from No. 15. Analysis: Washington has been heavily linked with a trade up for a quarterback over the last couple of days, but it seems like that talk is just smoke. ESPN's John Keim wrote there is a "slim chance" they move up because the team values the picks and needs a lot of help. If Washington really is looking for a quarterback, it is possible one falls into their lap at No. 15.11 hours
39.Report: Falcons willing to trade into to... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons have "shown a willingness to trade into the top 10." Analysis: Rapoport also lists Washington as a team willing to move up after they were linked with a couple of quarterbacks on Wednesday. For the Falcons, any trade up would likely be for a defender, and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero pegged Michigan LB Devin Bush as a prime target. The Broncos (10), Bengals (11), and Packers (12) all have a need at linebacker and pick ahead of the Falcons (14) on Thursday night.11 hours
40.Colt McCoy 'still a possibility' as star... (Rotoworld) FoxSports.com's Peter Schrager reports Washington doesn't view Case Keenum as the default starter. Analysis: Colt McCoy is reportedly "still very much a possibility" as the No. 1 atop Washington's depth chart even after the 32-year-old vet underwent a third procedure on his broken leg following a setback this offseason. The Skins sent the Broncos a 2020 sixth-round pick for Keenum's services in March, so they're not heavily invested in the ex-Broncos quarterback. Amid rumors owner Dan Snyder is attempting to overrule his staff and move up in tomorrow's draft, it's likely Washin... (More)22 hours
41.Dynasty | Ben Roethlisberger signs extension (Dynasty League Football) The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed Ben Roethlisberger to a two-year extension worth $68M Analysis: The deal happened a day before the 2019 NFL draft allowing the Steelers to move forward knowing they have Big Ben through the 2021 season. This is great news for Big Ben owners as he has shown how potent this offense can be. In 2018, he lead the league in passing with 5,129 yards and threw for 34 touchdowns. The Steelers traded away Antonio Brown in the offseason taking away a big weapon for their offense, but they still have JuJu Smith-Schuster an... (More)22 hours
42.'Feeling' is Bengals not in Day One QB m... (Rotoworld) FoxSports.com's Peter Schrager reports the "feeling" around the league is that the Bengals won't select a quarterback in the first round. Analysis: The new Bengals regime has been linked to Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins of late, but Schrager nixes that idea. The Athletic's Joe Goodberry also recently reported Cincinnati doesn't view Haskins as a prospect under center "worthy" of the No. 11 overall pick. If Jawaan Taylor, Andre Dillard, and Jonah Williams are all off the board by the time the Bengals are on the clock, it's still possible the team opts to draft a signal-caller in the first round.22 hours
43.Tampa exercises CB Hargreaves' team opti... (Rotoworld) Bucs exercised CB Vernon Hargreaves fifth-year option. Analysis: Hargreaves was only able to suit up for one game last year due to a torn labrum in his shoulder. Now fully healthy for the Bucs' offseason program, the 2016 first-rounder is expected to stick with Tampa Bay through the 2020 season (which his option covers). Although injuries have limited him to just 10 games over the last two seasons, the new coaching staff will rely on Hargreaves to play on the outside opposite of 2018 second-rounder Carlton Davis.23 hours
44.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids criminal charges (Dynasty League Football) The District Attorney of Johnson County, Kansas announced no charges will be filed in the criminal investigation of the Chiefs receiver, citing that "A crime has occurred," but stating there was no conclusive evidence as to who committed it. Analysis: It appears the Chiefs' star wide receiver will avoid legal charges. However, that does not mean the NFL will not still levy a suspension on Hill. The NFL has a precedent for suspending players that have not received criminal charges. Most notably players like Ezekiel Elliott, Adrian Peterson, and Ben Roethlisberger have been given suspensions fo... (More)23 hours
45.Dynasty | Marshawn Lynch Retires (Dynasty League Football) Marshawn Lynch retires from football after 12 seasons Analysis: Marshawn Lynch finishes his 12 year career in the NFL with 10,379 rushing yards and 84 touchdowns on the ground. Drafted 12th overall in 2007 by the Bills, Lynch quickly moved on to Seattle where he shined for the Seahawks. In 2016 he retired for a year before joining the Raiders for two years to round out his epic career.The Raiders were proactive in adding Isaiah Crowell (RB 52, ADP 171) earlier in the offseason. Crowell... (More)1 day
46.Tyreek Hill: Won't be charged (RotoWire) Johnson County (Kan.) District Attorney Steve Howe will not charge Hill or his fiance for domestic incidents involving their son, the Associated Press reports. Analysis: The investigation pored over the facts of two events from the first half of March at Hill's home in Overland Park, Kan. Howe's office "has reviewed all the evidence compiled ... and has declined to file charges" for alleged battery, according to Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports. While the probe didn't yield any criminal charges, there's still a chance the Chiefs and/or the NFL assess punishment for violations of the personal conduct policy. At the moment, though, neith... (More)1 day
47.Corey Liuget visits Jaguars (Rotoworld) Free agent DT Corey Liuget visited the Jaguars. Analysis: He visited with Seattle last week but left without a deal. Liuget should find a new team after the draft.1 day
48.Ezekiel Ansah: Expecting late-summer return (RotoWire) Ansah (shoulder) drew positive reviews from a shoulder specialist Monday and expects to be fully cleared by mid-August, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: It appears Ansah left his visit with the Ravens without signing a contract, but that doesn't necessarily mean Baltimore isn't a possible suitor for the defensive end anymore. Regardless, any team looking to sign Ansah will be concerned with the health of his troublesome shoulder, and it's sounding like the 2015 Pro-Bowler has a reasonable chance of being ready to go well before the start of the regular season.1 day
49.Carl Lawson: No clear timetable for return (RotoWire) Lawson (knee) doesn't have a clear timeline to return to the field, Fletcher Page of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "The goal overall is just be ready for the first game," he said. "That's my goal to be set for. Be back by training camp or be back by this date - I'm not going to sit there and rush it. I'm not. I'm ahead of schedule, but then again I could be down schedule. Until I feel right I'm not coming back. The goal is definitely the first game," Lawson said. Analysis: Lawson will be over 10 months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL when the regular season opens in September. While it's not unrealistic to think he could... (More)1 day
50.Ezekiel Ansah likely to be cleared in Au... (Rotoworld) Free agent EDGE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is expected to be cleared in August. Analysis: Ansah had a check-up with Dr. Neal ElAttrache this week. There are no structural issues with his shoulder, but he needs time to rebuild strength that is likely going to cost him some of training camp. Ansah visited with the Ravens on Wednesday and should start to see his market heat up after the draft.1 day
51.Buckner's fifth-year option picked up (Rotoworld) 49ers exercised LE DeForest Buckner's fifth-year option. Analysis: This was an expected move. Buckner made the Pro Bowl with a career-high 13 sacks in a breakout 2018. The 49ers should sign Buckner to a long-term extension next offseason.1 day
52.Dynasty | Josh Gordon signs restricted tender (Dynasty League Football) The Patriots wide receiver has signed his restricted free agent tender. Analysis: Whether or not Gordon will play in 2019 is still very much in question. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in December after once again violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Gordon has been considered one of the most purely talented receivers in the game since his breakout performance in 2013 that saw him record 87 catches, 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns from a QB timeshare of Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer. Unfortunately, his well-documented struggles with substance abuse have derailed his ca... (More)1 day
53.Keanu Neal: Fifth-year option exercised (RotoWire) The Falcons officially exercised the fifth-year option on Neal's rookie contract Wednesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports. Analysis: This comes as no surprise after general manager Thomas Dimitroff stated in February that the team planned to go this direction. Neal is now officially under Falcons control through 2020 and looking to rebound from an ACL injury that ended his 2018 season in Week 1. The safety was seen participating in weight-lifting workouts as recently as last week and appears to be on track to return well before the start of the 2019 campaign.1 day
54.Redskins re-sign OL Tony Bergstrom (Rotoworld) Redskins re-signed OL Tony Bergstrom. Analysis: Bergstrom made eight starts as a swing interior lineman last year. He'll return as quality veteran depth.1 day
55.Jets SS Marcus Maye cleared for minicamp (Rotoworld) Jets SS Marcus Maye (shoulder) was cleared for voluntary minicamp. Analysis: Maye had surgery after going on IR in December. It's a great sign that he'll get in a full offseason. The Jets should have one of the better safety tandems in the league if Maye stays healthy.1 day
56.Jaire Alexander: Looking healthy at minicamp (RotoWire) Alexander (groin) is participating in team drills at Wednesday's minicamp, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: It doesn't sound as if there are any lingering effects from the groin injury that prevented Alexander from playing in last year's regular-season finale against the Lions. After turning in a rookie season in which Alexander proved why he was made a first-round pick, the Louisville product seems entrenched as a starter for Green Bay in 2019 and could pretty clearly operate as the No. 1 corner if Kevin King (hamstring) can't stay healthy.1 day
57.Kevin King: Not participating in minicamp (RotoWire) King (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: King is the only Packers player that finished last season on injured reserve and isn't taking part in Wednesday's minicamp. While it's not entirely clear if his absence is directly related to the hamstring injury that respectively planted King on IR, it wouldn't be a surprise if Green Bay is taking as cautious of an approach as possible given how the 2017 second-rounder has missed at least seven games in both of his first two seasons.1 day
58.Tyreek not charged; Lack of evidence cit... (Rotoworld) Tyreek Hill will not be charged after being investigated in two separate child abuse cases. Analysis: Johnson County DA Steve Howe said he believes a crime was committed when Hill's three-year-old son's arm was broken last month, but that he could not prove who did it. The boy's mother, Crystal Espinal, will also not be charged. "A child has been hurt," the DA said. "So, yes, as a father of three kids and a prosecutor, it’s frustrating you can’t do anything about it." In so many words, the DA seemed to be casting guilt without actually saying it. Hill and Espinal ma... (More)1 day
59.Tyreek Hill will not have charges by District Attorney (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the District Attorney will not press charges against Tyreek Hill in the domestic abuse case. Analysis: There has been updates quite often with Hill recently, though nothing was concrete until now. His child had been removed from his home after suffering a broken arm in a "domestic dispute," though the DA's office has decided there's no conclusive evidence as to who actually broke the child's arm. The Chiefs said they were paying attention to the matter, but given there will be no charges pressed against Hill, he's likely going to get away from this unscathed. Unless Roger Goodell gets invol... (More)1 day
60.Brian Robison: Retires from NFL (RotoWire) Robison signed a one-day contract with the Vikings on Wednesday and subsequently announced his retirement from the NFL, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports. Analysis: Robison spent his entire 11-year career in Minnesota after the team drafted him in the fourth round in 2007. He missed just three games in his career and started 95 contests from 2011 to 2016, ultimately finishing with 206 tackles, 60 sacks and 13 forced fumbles during his career.1 day
61.DeForest Buckner: Team exercises fifth-year option (RotoWire) The 49ers exercised the fifth-year option on Buckner's rookie contract Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Analysis: The two sides could eventually agree to an extension this offseason, but Buckner is nonetheless under 49ers control for the next two seasons. After finishing third in sacks (12) among all defensive lineman last season, he'll now be complemented by a proven pass-rush specialist in offseason pickup Dee Ford. It's possible the team could use its current control of the No. 2 overall pick in this week's draft to bring in another blue-chip talent on the defensive line like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Willi... (More)1 day
62.Nelson Agholor: Could be available for trade (RotoWire) Agholor may be available via trade ahead of Thursday's draft, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Agholor is scheduled to make $9.4 million in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. The Eagles don't have an obvious replacement, but they can probably get away with a downgrade in the slot if Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Zach Ertz (undisclosed) are all healthy. Although each of those three players finished out 2018 battling injuries, there hasn't been any suggestion their issues will impact participation in offseason practices.1 day
63.Former Vikings DE Brian Robison retires (Rotoworld) Free agent DE Brian Robison announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons. Analysis: Robison, 36 later this week, spent 2018 out of the league after being released at final cuts last summer. He's signing a one-day contract to retire with the Vikings after spending his entire career in the organization. Robison recorded 60 career sacks while also playing strong run defense.1 day
64.Teams believe Agholor is available for t... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams believe Nelson Agholor is available for trade.1 day
65.Bengals pick up CB William Jackson's opt... (Rotoworld) Bengals exercised CB William Jackson's fifth-year option for 2020. Analysis: Jackson will get a hefty raise from $1.77 million this season to north of $13 million in 2020. The salary is guaranteed for injury only, so the Bengals will have a chance to get out of it at a later date. However, Jackson had a strong 2018 season, playing over 1,000 snaps as Cincinnati's top corner and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover corner out of 123 qualifiers.1 day
66.Report: WSH has looked into moving into ... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Redskins have "explored" trading into the top five. Analysis: The Jets, Raiders, and Bucs hold the Nos. 3-5 picks behind the Cardinals and 49ers. The Jets have made it known they're open to moving back, and the Bucs have also expressed a willingness to do the same at the right price. Washington holds the No. 15 pick currently, and coming up this far would certainly involved next year's first-rounder. The Redskins are reportedly enamored with Dwayne Haskins.1 day
67.Sheldon Rankins: Gets fifth-year option (RotoWire) The Saints are exercising their fifth-year option on Rankins, who is expected to miss the early part of the 2019 season after suffering a torn Achilles on Jan. 13, The New Orleans Advocate reports. Analysis: The fifth-year option applies to 2020 and is guaranteed for injury only. It was probably an easy decision even with a lengthy rehab process ahead, as Rankins is coming off a breakout 2018 campaign that featured 40 tackles (26 solo) and eight sacks in 16 regular-season games (all starts). The 12th overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft recently celebrated his 25th birthday and likely will open his fourth pro season on the PUP list.1 day
68.Duke Johnson: Staying away from team (RotoWire) Johnson is absent from the Browns' voluntary minicamp this week, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Analysis: Johnson's agent requested a trade a few weeks after the Browns signed Kareem Hunt (suspension), likely fearing the 25-year-old won't have a meaningful role in the second half of 2019 if both Hunt and Nick Chubb are available. General manager John Dorsey said last week that he still views Johnson as an important part of the offense, but Dorsey could easily change his mind if/when the backfield becomes crowded. A trade would allow both parties to avoid the awkward scenario, though Cleveland would be left with ... (More)1 day
69.Kareem Hunt: Practicing with new teammates (RotoWire) Hunt (suspension) is practicing with the Browns for the first time this week, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Analysis: Hunt is allowed to participate in all team activities -- including preseason games -- until his eight-game suspension kicks in Aug. 31. His presence on the roster has led to trade rumors surrounding Duke Johnson, who thus far has elected to stay away from the team during the voluntary portion of the offseason program. Johnson's agent reportedly asked for a trade in March or early April, but general manager John Dorsey said last week that the 25-year-old running back is still a "vital part" of the off...

70.Ezekiel Ansah: Visiting Baltimore (RotoWire) Ansah (shoulder) is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: While he only has experience in 4-3 schemes to this point in his pro career, Ansah could fit in Baltimore's 3-4 defense as a pass rusher for nickel packages, helping to replace offseason defections Terrell Suggs (Cardinals) and Za'Darius Smith (Packers). Ansah will turn 30 in May after battling through a series of injuries the past three seasons, but it's hard to argue with his production when healthy, as he had 16 sacks in 21 appearances between 2017 and 2018 despite averaging just 31.5 snaps per game. Ansah's career rate of one sack ... (More)1 day
71.Justin Tucker: Staying in Baltimore long term (RotoWire) Tucker agreed Wednesday with the Ravens on a four-year contract extension, Clifton Brown of the team's official website reports. Analysis: Tucker leads the NFL in career field-goal percentage (90.1%) and has consistently turned in useful fantasy seasons despite being attached to mediocre or subpar offenses. His phenomenal track record includes at least four field goals of 50 or more yards in each of his seven NFL seasons, with a career conversion rate of 70.4 percent (38 of 54) from long range. The 29-year-old kicker showed no sign of decline in 2018, though he did miss a game-tying extra point Week 7 to snap his streak of 222 consecu... (More)1 day
72.Ben Roethlisberger: Reaches two-year extension (RotoWire) The Steelers and Roethlisberger came to terms Wednesday on a two-year contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The value of the deal isn't yet known, but it's expected that the extension will make Roethlisberger one of the NFL's highest-paid players on an annual basis while he's on the Steelers' books through 2021. Though the veteran signal-caller had hinted at retirement in previous offseasons, Roethlisberger confirmed shortly after the Steelers' 2018 campaign wrapped up that he would be back for 2019. Roethlisberger is coming off a productive season in which he established new career highs in passing yards ... (More)1 day
73.Justin Tucker signs record extension (FantasyPros) Kicker Justin Tucker will sign a 4-year, $23.05M extension with the Ravens. Analysis: The extension keeps Tucker in Baltimore through 2023 and includes an $8 million signing bonus as well as $12.5 million guaranteed over the first two years of the deal. Those figures are all records for a kicker, but Tucker has proven he is worth the investment with his deadly accuracy. In his seven-year career, he has nailed an NFL-record 90.1 percent of his 263 field goal attempts and 99.6 percent of his 242 extra point attempts, earning All-Pro honors three times.1 day
74.Ezekiel Ansah visiting the Ravens Wednes... (Rotoworld) Free agent EDGE Ezekiel Ansah is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday. Analysis: Ansah's shoulder is the hangup in any potential deal, one that will likely be loaded with incentives and per-game bonuses. Ansah has had multiple shoulder operations and turns 30 next month. However, when healthy, he remains a formidable player off the edge. The Ravens have a huge need there after losing both Terrell Suggs and Za'Darius Smith in free agency. Ansah is one of the best players left on the market.1 day
75.Ben Roethlisberger signs two-year extension (FantasyPros) According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger have agreed to a two-year contract extension to keep him with the team through 2021. Analysis: This is a bit different than the last two offseasons where we heard rumors about Roethlisberger hanging up the cleats and possibly retiring. After drafting Mason Rudolph last year, it was unlikely the Steelers were going to take another quarterback in this draft regardless. If anything, this is great news for JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, and Vance McDonald, as they'll have a few more dynasty years with Roethlisberger.1 day
76.Ezekiel Elliott: Under contract through 2020 (RotoWire) The Cowboys exercised Elliott's fifth-year option Tuesday, keeping him under contract through 2020, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports. Analysis: The decision to pick up the $9.1 million option was an easy one for the Cowboys, as the 23-year-old has established himself as one of the NFL's few three-down bellcows since entering the league in 2016. The option may end up serving merely as a placeholder while Elliott and the Cowboys turn their attention to working out a long-term extension that will keep the Ohio State product in Dallas for the duration of his prime.1 day
77.Ravens give K Tucker 4-year, $23M extens... (Rotoworld) Ravens signed K Justin Tucker to a four-year, $23.05 million extension through 2023. Analysis: Tucker is now tied to Baltimore through his age-34 campaign. He gets $12.5 million guaranteed, which is a record for a kicker. Tucker has drilled 90.1% of his field goals in his career and just missed his first career extra point last season. He's a three-time first-team All-Pro and should have plenty of years left in his leg.1 day
78.Steelers ink Big Ben to extension throug... (Rotoworld) Steelers signed QB Ben Roethlisberger to a two-year extension through 2021. Analysis: Ben had been heading into the final year of his deal, and this extension was a priority ahead of draft weekend. The deal locks Roethlisberger into Pittsburgh through his age-39 season and will likely keep him in town for the remainder of his career.1 day
79.Marshawn Lynch: Plans to retire again (RotoWire) Lynch (groin) plans to retire from professional football rather than attempting to play in 2019, league sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN. Analysis: Lynch previously stepped away from the game following the Seahawks' Super Bowl 50 loss to the Patriots, sitting out the 2016 season before Seattle traded his rights to Oakland. Invigorated by the chance to play for his hometown team, Lynch promptly inked a two-year deal with the Raiders and made 21 appearances during his time in Oakland, logging 1,267 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. His 2018 campaign was cut short by a groin injury, and though the issue wasn't anything that would have i... (More)1 day
80.Report: Redskins targeting Haskins in Ro... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Dianna Russini reports Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins is the Redskins' target in a potential first-round trade-up scenario. Analysis: Haskins has quite possibly been the most polarizing draft prospect, particularly over the last couple weeks. Reports have come out that some teams don't even have a first-round grade on the burly ex-Buckeye. But the Redskins link has been there from the beginning. It's possible the Redskins will have to come up all the way into the top-3 in order to secure Haskins. It would cost a ton in draft capital to move up that far from No. 15 overall. For what it's worth, Russini reports the Redskins d... (More)1 day
81.Marshawn Lynch retiring after 12 years i... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Marshawn Lynch is retiring from the NFL after 12 seasons.1 day
82.Saints pick up Sheldon Rankins' 2020 opt... (Rotoworld) Saints exercised DT Sheldon Rankins' fifth-year option for 2020. Analysis: Rankins is still in recovery mode from a January torn Achilles', and the 2020 option is guaranteed for injury only. So the Saints obviously have faith in his recovery. Rankins is almost certain to open 2019 on reserve/PUP. Rankins had a big 2018 with eight sacks before his injury.1 day
83.Marshawn Lynch calling it a career, plans to retire again (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Marshawn Lynch is retiring. Analysis: Lynch retired after the 2015 season before coming back one year later two play two seasons for his hometown Raiders. The 33-year-old showed signs of life last season but managed to play in six just games this in 2018. He finishes his 11 year career with nearly 2,500 rushing yards, 91 total touchdowns, and a Super Bowl ring with the 2013 Seahawks. Lynch's departure from Oakland means the team is all the more likely to draft a running back on Thursday night.1 day
84.Kingsbury: Rosen a top-10 pick for a rea... (Rotoworld) Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Josh Rosen "was a top-10 pick for a reason." Analysis: Despite persistent rumors about the Cardinals replacing him with Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray, Rosen has shown up to all offseason activities, and his coach at least wants people to believe the quarterback has been impressive. "I think Josh has done everything humanly possible to show what type of quarterback he is, what type of competitor he is," Kingsbury said. "I’ve said it all along, I couldn’t be more impressed with his approach. He’s a great player." Perhaps King... (More)1 day
85.CB Chris Harris requests new deal or tra... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Broncos CB Chris Harris has requested a new contract or a trade. Analysis: Earlier on Tuesday, GM John Elway once again confirmed the team plans to address Harris' contract situation following the draft, but the corner wants to see some action. Following the season, Harris said he wants to win and "can't waste any years" at this point in his career, so it is possible Denver's downward slide the last several seasons has played a role in his discontent. Harris has skipped offseason work to this point, and it is possible he stays away through the mand... (More)1 day
86.Ben Roethlisberger: Could get extension soon (RotoWire) The Steelers hope to sign Roethlisberger to a contract extension before the beginning of the 2019 NFL Draft, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports. Analysis: There doesn't seem to be any real concern about the two sides failing to reach an agreement, though it won't necessarily happen by Thursday. The 37-year-old quarterback is entering the final season of a four-year, $87.6 million extension and faces the prospect of leading an offense without Antonio Brown (Raiders) or Le'Veon Bell (Jets). The Steelers still have an above average collection of talent on offense, led by an excellent O-line and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.2 days
87.Nazair Jones: Shifting to outside (RotoWire) Jones will play as a defensive end in 2019, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports. Analysis: Jones spent his first two seasons with the Seahawks as a defensive tackle, and he worked in a limited role with underwhelming results. Poona Ford established himself as a dependable run-stopper down the stretch last season, so the Seahawks feel comfortable bumping Jones to the outside. There's an opening at defensive end for the time being after Frank Clark was traded to the Chiefs, but the Seahawks are expected to draft at least one edge rusher which will further cut into Jones' projected usage.2 days
88.Adolphus Washington: Cut by Cincinnati (RotoWire) The Bengals waived Washington (knee) on Tuesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Washington was selected by Buffalo in the third round of the 2016 draft and waived after Week 1 last season. He spent some time on the Dallas practice squad and later signed with Cincinnati, ultimately finishing the season with eight tackles and one sack in five games. It's unclear if Washington has made a full recovery from the knee injury that sent him to injured reserve in November.2 days
89.Darron Lee: Sitting out OTAs (RotoWire) Lee isn't participating in the offseason program, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Neither team nor player has much incentive to risk an injury when there's a desire to work out a trade. With C.J. Mosley and Avery Williamson locked in as their top linebackers, the Jets presumably hope to deal Lee before or during the 2019 NFL Draft. The 2016 first-round pick had three interceptions last season and three sacks the year prior, but he was never known for consistency even before he closed out 2018 with a four-game suspension for a substance abuse violation.2 days
90.Saints CB Ken Crawley signs RFA tender (Rotoworld) Saints re-signed CB Ken Crawley to a one-year, $2.025 million contract. Analysis: A key 2017 contributor, Crawley was benched in 2018. He returns as depth with an inside track on a 53-man roster spot.2 days
91.Mike Hughes: Running at offseason workouts (RotoWire) Hughes (knee) has resumed running, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Selected 30th overall in last year's draft, Hughes made two starts in six games before a torn ACL brought his rookie season to an early end in mid-October. He showed a knack for the big play with a pick-six, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery, also getting some work as a return man on special teams. Hughes appears to be on track for Week 1, but he'll surely have limitations throughout the offseason program and possibly into training camp.2 days
92.Chris Long: Still contemplating retirement (RotoWire) Long remains undecided about his NFL future, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports. Analysis: The 34-year-old defensive end turned down a roster bonus in March, allowing him more time to make a decision on retirement. Long showed he still has something left with 6.5 sacks in 2018, but he now seems to have some concerns about his role and/or compensation. The Eagles are in a good position to withstand the potential loss, considering they have Derek Barnett (shoulder), Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry at defensive end, while defensive tackles Fletcher Cox (foot) and Malik Jackson provide a strong pass rush inside.2 days
93.Joey Bosa: Tabbed with fifth-year option (RotoWire) The Chargers have exercised the fifth-year option on Bosa's contract, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: With 134 tackles (101 solo) and 28.5 sacks in 35 career games, Bosa has shown no real weakness aside from durability. There's been no report of his 2018 foot injury lingering into the offseason and he's now under contract at a discount price through 2020. The third overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft will celebrate his 24th birthday in July.2 days
94.Dynasty | Frank Clark traded to the Chiefs (Dynasty League Football) In return the Seahawks will receive pick 29 in 2019, a 2020 second round pick, and they will swap their 2019 third round picks. Analysis: Clark will create a fearsome, pocket collapsing duo with DT Chris Jones in Steve Spagnuolo's 4-3 defensive front. While he had has his fair share of off-the-field concerns, Clark has shown off his brilliance as a pass rusher through his first four seasons, compiling 35.0 sacks and 72 QB hits over that span. Fantasy owners can breathe a sign of relief in the fact that he will continue to maintain his DE tag with a long term deal done. Clark is currently ranked as the ... (More)2 days
95.49ers sign OG Ben Garland (Rotoworld) 49ers signed OG Ben Garland, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year contract. Analysis: Now 31, Garland has made just seven career starts, though all seven of them have come in the past two years. The 49ers do not have a great guard situation, but Garland remains a pure backup.2 days
96.Josh Gordon: Signs contract tender (RotoWire) Gordon (suspension) has signed his restricted free agent tender with the Patriots, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Gordon remains indefinitely suspended by the NFL, but the act of signing his contact tender ensures that if he's deemed eligible to play at any point this coming season, it will be with the Patriots. In 12 games (11 with New England) last year, Gordon displayed flashes of his undeniable skill, en route to catching 41 passes for 737 yards and four TDs. Beyond Julian Edelman, roles in the team's 2019 wideout corps have not yet been solidified, so if at any point Gordon's playing eligibility is restored, the 28-year-o... (More)2 days
97.Robby Anderson: Locked in for key role under Gase (RotoWire) Coach Adam Gase believes the Jets can do more to get Anderson involved in a variety of ways, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Analysis: Anderson has proven himself as a deep threat with career marks of 14.7 yards per catch and 8.0 per target, but the nature of his role combined with shaky quarterback play has made consistency elusive. While Gase seems to be hinting at a more dynamic role that allows Anderson to move around the formation, it will be tough to find snaps in the slot with Jamison Crowder, Quincy Enunwa and Le'Veon Bell all on the roster. The added competition for targets could easily be offset by improved ... (More)2 days
98.Report: PIT wants Ben extension before d... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers are "working hard" to complete an extension for contract-year QB Ben Roethlisberger before the start of the draft. Analysis: The 37-year-old Roethlisberger has been playing on his current deal since 2015. Although he is not the playmaker outside the pocket he once was, Big Ben has shown extremely little drop off. He has also shown increased durability, missing just one game over the past two years. Roethlisberger's leadership remains a question mark, but he is a good bet for 2-3 more strong seasons.2 days
99.Jarran Reed: Undergoes sports hernia surgery (RotoWire) Reed had surgery Tuesday to repair a sports hernia, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Reed expects to recover within 4-to-6 weeks, giving him plenty of time to get ready for the start of training camp. He'll presumably be held out of all offseason practices, coming off a breakout 2018 campaign with 50 tackles (34 solo) and 10.5 sacks in 16 games (all starts). The 2016 second-round pick is the only proven pass rusher on Seattle's roster after defensive end Frank Clark was traded to Kansas City on Tuesday.2 days
100.Suspended Josh Gordon signs RFA tender (Rotoworld) Patriots re-signed WR Josh Gordon to a one-year, $2.025 million contract. Analysis: Gordon is once again indefinitely suspended, but NFL.com reported in February there is a "chance" he is reinstated by training camp. Believe it when you see it. The practical implication of Gordon signing his restricted free agent tender is that, if he plays, it will indeed be as a Patriot. We have gone months without a real update on Gordon's status/progress.2 days
