  Packers | Marcedes Lewis wants to keep playing    Mon Jan 20, 04:14 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Marcedes Lewis said he wants to continue his playing career and hopes to re-sign with the Packers this offseason because he felt comfortable with his role in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense.

Footballguys view: Lewis played 500 snaps for the Packers in 2019, catching just 15 passes for 156 yards and one touchdown. He's no longer the player he used to be but the Packers may consider him on another one-year deal to have veteran depth at the position.

  Titans | Jack Conklin hopes to return    Mon Jan 20, 03:55 PM

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent OT Jack Conklin said he hopes to re-sign with Titans this offseason.

Footballguys view: Conklin battled through knee and shoulder injuries during the 2019 season but he played a full 16 games. He's got strength and the point of attack and can control his man with incredibly strong hands and understanding of leverage. Conklin is going to be highly coveted by other teams if he makes it to the open market. The Titans will have roughly $60 million in cap space and need to keep Conklin around.

  NFL | Ashtyn Davis to sit out Senior Bowl    Mon Jan 20, 03:12 PM

California S Ashtyn Davis (undisclosed) will not play in the Senior Bowl because he underwent an undisclosed surgery after the college football season, according to a source. He is still meeting with teams in Mobile this week.

Footballguys view: Bad news for scouts at the Senior Bowl. Davis is considered the best senior safety in the country and is second in rankings only to LSU's Grant Delpit. In college at Cal, Davis showed tremendous athleticism and toughness while also playing with high football intelligence.

  Buccaneers | Philip Rivers an option for Tampa Bay?    Mon Jan 20, 01:44 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers is set to become a free agent at the end of the league year and recently moved from San Diego to Florida in order to be closer to his family in Alabama. The combination of the two is fueling 'a lot of buzz' that Rivers may be a potential target for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Footballguys view: We should see Rivers playing elsewhere in 2020. The long-time Chargers starter could be an option for the Buccaneers but they have to first decide whether or not they'll be moving on from Jameis Winston. The buzz around the league is that the Colts may also have interest in Rivers.

  Panthers | Phil Snow to run Carolina's defense    Mon Jan 20, 12:04 PM

Updating previous reports, Baylor defensive coordinator Phil Snow was named as the new defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers on Monday, Jan. 20.

Footballguys view: New Panthers head coach (and former Baylor head coach) Matt Rhule loves Snow and has hired him as his DC in all three of his coaching stops. They have some talent on defense in Carolina but have big shoes to fill in the recently retired Luke Kuechly. We'll see how Snow takes advantage of the talent that is left.

  Browns | George Paton likely to be CLE GM    Mon Jan 20, 11:25 AM

Minnesota Vikings assistant general manager George Paton could be hired as Cleveland Browns general manager early this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Paton has been working for this promotion for some time and did interview for GM positions with the Colts and 49ers back in 2017. If hired by the Browns, Paton would reconnect with former Vikings OC (and new Browns head coach) Kevin Stefanski.

  Texans | Anthony Weaver promoted to DC    Mon Jan 20, 08:42 AM

Houston Texans defensive line coach Anthony Weaver was promoted to defensive coordinator Monday, Jan. 20.

Footballguys view: Romeo Crennel's contract expired and now he's looking for a new gig...or perhaps considering retirement. Weaver has a talented defense to work with and should be able to get them playing up to their potential in 2020.

  Texans | Romeo Crennel not coming back    Mon Jan 20, 08:41 AM

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel is not expected back in 2020. Defensive line coach Anthony Weaver is the top candidate to replace him.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Crennel's defense did not perform up to their potential in 2019. We might see Crennel go ahead and retire from football but perhaps some team would want to bring him on as a senior advisor.

  49ers | Tevin Coleman could return for Super Bowl    Mon Jan 20, 01:54 AM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) has a 'good chance' to be available for the Super Bowl, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Coleman will have two weeks to get ready for the Super Bowl in Miami. He should be able to play but the 49ers will clearly still use their RBBC featuring guys like Coleman and Raheem Mostert.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz an extension candidate    Sun Jan 19, 03:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz will be a candidate for a contract extension this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ertz is under contract with the Eagles through the 2021 season. He has a cap hit of $12.4 million in 2020 and there's $13.5 million remaining in dead money. The Eagles might want to adjust that number and re-work the veteran tight ends deal. Ertz appeared in 15 games in 2019, catching 88 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns. That was good to rank No.5 for fantasy tight ends in standard-scoring leagues.
