  Rams | Jared Goff's option picked up    Tue Apr 23, 03:06 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff had his fifth-year rookie option for 2020 exercised Tuesday, April 23.

  Chiefs | Kansas City quickly locks up Frank Clark    Tue Apr 23, 02:17 PM

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs DE Frank Clark agreed to terms on a five-year contract worth $105.5 million - including $63.5 million guaranteed - on Tuesday, April 23. Clark was acquired from the Seattle Seahawks earlier in the day.

Footballguys view: Clark got more than Demarcus Lawrence, which is a mild surprise. Jadeveon Clowney's price just went up, much to Houston's dismay.

  49ers | Robbie Gould asks for a trade    Tue Apr 23, 02:05 PM

San Francisco 49ers PK Robbie Gould, who has been offered the team's franchise tag but has yet to sign it, has informed the team he will not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with them and wants to be traded, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Gould is wrangling to go back to the Bears, who are in kicker hell right now. He would need a new contract, which the Bears will need to maneuver to afford, and the Bears would need to give up draft capital, which they have little of this year. The 49ers have Jon Brown on hand to handle kicking duties until this gets sorted out.

  Seahawks | Seattle deals Frank Clark for draft picks    Tue Apr 23, 02:00 PM

  Chiefs | K.C. trades for Frank Clark    Tue Apr 23, 01:54 PM

DE Frank Clark was acquired by the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, April 23, in trade with the Seattle Seahawks. In exchange, Seattle acquired Kansas City's 2019 first-round draft pick and a 2020 second-round selection, according to a source. The teams will also swap 2019 third-round selections.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs effectively dealt Dee Ford and #29 for Frank Clark. Clark is a much better fit in Steve Spagnuolo's 4-3 than Ford, and he's much better vs. the run. The Chiefs are trying to maximize their championship chances during the window of Patrick Mahomes' rookie deal, while the Seahawks are feeling the pain of Russell Wilson's market-setting extension knowing that Bobby Wagner and Jarran Reed also will need new contracts soon. Seattle now has the weakest edge rush group in the league.

  Bears | Chicago GM downplays RB needs    Tue Apr 23, 01:33 PM

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace on Tuesday, April 23, challenged the 'narrative' that the Bears need to draft a running back later this week. 'There's no pressing, huge need,' Pace said, adding that the team likes its current backs. 'We can honestly pick the best player available.'

  Jets | Sam Darnold eager for second season    Tue Apr 23, 01:02 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold called new head coach Adam Gase 'awesome' and added he is looking forward to his second NFL season. 'It's going to be fun to attack this year,' Darnold said Tuesday, April 23, at the team's voluntary minicamp. '... Good things to come.'

Footballguys view: Gase does have a reputation for helping his quarterback, although it seems he was not responsive to other position development in some cases during his tenure as head coach at Miami. Still, the Jets should be on the offensive improvement watch list.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell's absence not a concern    Tue Apr 23, 12:55 PM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was a no-show Tuesday, April 23, on the first day of the team's voluntary minicamp, but head coach Adam Gase didn't appear overly concerned. 'It's voluntary,' Gase said, noting that Bell was with the team earlier this month for the first week of the offseason program and adding that Bell has a strong self-training regimen.

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was not spotted with his teammates Tuesday, April 23, as the Jets opened a three-day voluntary minicamp.

Footballguys view: Some may try to make this into a story, but emphasis on "voluntary" here. The coaches say it's no issue, so it's no issue. From most reports it sounds like the minicamp is low impact and features no offense vs defense.

  Ravens | Ronnie Stanley's option picked up    Tue Apr 23, 11:56 AM

Baltimore Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley's fifth-year option was exercised Tuesday, April 23.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy had third leg surgery    Tue Apr 23, 11:41 AM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (leg) underwent a third procedure on his leg, but he could be ready for workouts next week. 'What happened was when he had the injury we were aggressive trying to get him back on the field so fast we didn't give it time enough to heal the right way so they went back in and did a small procedure to make sure that thing is on track to be full strength by the season,' head coach Jay Gruden said at the NFL League Meetings in Arizona last month. McCoy had a third, minor, surgery afterwards.

Footballguys view: McCoy was rushed back in anticipation of a possible playoff berth, which seems unwise if the team was being honest with themselves about where they stood after losing him. He joins Derrius Guice and Alex Smith on the list of Washington players who have had to have multiple procedures to resolve serious leg injuries.

  Bengals | Adolphus Washington waived    Tue Apr 23, 11:34 AM

Cincinnati Bengals DT Adolphus Washington was waived Tuesday, April 23.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart retires with Panthers    Tue Apr 23, 11:01 AM

Free-agent RB Jonathan Stewart (Giants) signed a one-day contract Tuesday, April 23, to retire with the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Stewart was the #13 pick for the Panthers in 2008 even though the team already had De'Angelo Williams. A myriad of leg and foot injuries kept him from fulfilling his potential, but he still finished with over 7000 rushing yards and gave us some great stretches of play over the years.

  Chargers | Joey Bosa's option exercised    Tue Apr 23, 08:25 AM

Los Angeles Chargers DE Joey Bosa's fifth-year option was exercised Tuesday, April 23.

  NFL | Rashan Gary has shoulder issue    Tue Apr 23, 08:24 AM

University of Michigan DT Rashan Gary (shoulder) has a tear in the labrum in his shoulder that was flagged. It happened in college, and most believe he can play this season and possibly have surgery afterwards. It will likely have to be managed.

Footballguys view: This should drop Gary well down the board, perhaps even out of the first round. He was being mentioned in connection to the Giants, even as high as #6, but having limited contributions this year greatly affects his stock.

  NFL | Jerry Tillery met with two teams    Mon Apr 22, 10:53 PM

Notre Dame DT Jerry Tillery met with the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.
