  Ravens | A.J. Green a fit in Baltimore?    Thu Feb 20, 11:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR A.J. Green (foot) 'wants out of Cincinnati,' in the opinion of an NFC executive, and the executive believes Green would be a 'good fit' for the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Green would be a great fit anywhere. The Ravens could really use his talents as they don't have much outside of Marquise Brown at the wide receiver position. So long as he's healthy, Green can be one of the best receivers in the game. It would be a thrill to see him catch passes from Lamar Jackson in 2020.

  Jets | Big money for Robby Anderson?    Thu Feb 20, 10:38 PM

New York Jets impending free-agent Robby Anderson's next contract is likely to come in north of $10 million, according to an AFC personnel evaluator. 'It's real simple,' the evaluator said. 'He's fast and has size. Any team that wants speed at receiver will pay him well.'

Footballguys view: Anderson might be the highest-paid free agent receiver this offseason...depending on what happens with Bengals WR A.J. Green. We could see him get $10-12 million annually on his new deal. Anderson is arguably the best speed receiver in free agency and is looking to cash in.

  Titans | Tennessee to keep Derrick Henry?    Thu Feb 20, 10:17 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has a good chance to receive a big extension from the Titans, according to an AFC scout. 'Keep a guy who you know you're getting with such consistency,' the scout said.

Footballguys view: There is no way Henry leaves the Titans. Well, there's always a way but it would be ludicrous for the Titans to let Henry walk in free agency. He's the centerpiece of what they do on offense and should remain as such for 2020 and beyond.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota not rushing things    Thu Feb 20, 10:07 PM

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Marcus Mariota is expected to take his time to make a decision during free agency, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Mariota is not going to get a starting job in free agency. Instead, he should find a team where he could be a valuable backup behind a young starter. Perhaps a team like the Broncos would be interested if the price was right.

  NFL | Damon Harrison wants to play in 2020    Thu Feb 20, 10:00 PM

Free-agent DT Damon Harrison (Lions) said he wants to continue playing in 2020, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Harrison had been considering retirement, but there's some team willing to give him a short-term deal. 'Snacks' Harrison is not the same player he used to be, and he's coming off a disappointing 2019 season. However, he's still huge and can stuff the run in the middle of the line as a two-down player.

  49ers | Levine Toilolo may return    Thu Feb 20, 07:24 PM

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent TE Levine Toilolo could be re-signed this offseason because of his blocking ability, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

Footballguys view: Toilolo is a good blocker and that's his role with the team. They should bring him back for continuity's sake behind George Kittle.

  Broncos | Andy Janovich on track for workouts    Thu Feb 20, 06:06 PM

Denver Broncos FB Andy Janovich (elbow) is expected to be ready for the start of offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Janovich won't have much of a role on offense for the Broncos as new OC Pat Shurmur doesn't use a fullback much in his system. The veteran fullback will stick on the roster because he's a 4-phaser on special teams.

  Browns | Odell Beckham should be healthy soon    Thu Feb 20, 05:09 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) should be completely recovered from his core muscle surgery in about a month, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That puts him on track to be ready for offseason workouts. That being said, the Browns are likely to take it easy on the veteran superstar in OTAs and minicamp. We'll see if a fully healthy Beckham, and hopefully an improved Baker Mayfield, can boost the Browns passing attack in 2020.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed cut    Thu Feb 20, 04:51 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was released Thursday, Feb. 20, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Reed just got cleared from the concussion protocol and he hasn't played in over a year. He's a fine player when healthy but he's never played a full 16-game season in his pro career. If he wants to keep playing, some team might give him a one-year 'prove it' deal.

Footballguys view: Harris has familiarity with Matt Nagy's scheme from their time together with the Chiefs.
