  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay signs Andre Ellington    Tue Feb 19, 04:12 PM

Free-agent RB Andre Ellington (Texans) was signed to an undisclosed deal by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday, Feb. 19. Ellington played for Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians when they were with the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Ellington's best season as a pro came in 2014 under Arians. That year for the Cardinals Ellington had 660 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns, plus 46 receptions for 395 yards and two receiving touchdowns. That was some time ago, and Ellington has not produced anything close to that since and was out of the league in 2018. Ellington will be hard pressed to make the final roster but will attempt to do so as a receiving back for the Bucs.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst at full health    Tue Feb 19, 04:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is fully healthy again after a screw was recently removed from the foot he fractured last August.

Footballguys view: The 2018 first-round pick wasn't able to make much of an impact as a rookie. Hurst was able to play in 12 games in his rookie year and caught only 13 passes for 163 yards and one touchdown. The Ravens have a run-heavy offense with QB Lamar Jackson running the show, so Fantasy GMs should not expect much from Hurst outside of TE2 levels of production in 2019.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent DE DeMarcus Lawrence will not sign the franchise tag if the Cowboys were to use that on him this offseason.

  Dolphins | Albert Wilson has coach excited    Tue Feb 19, 01:19 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson is one of the best bets to remain with the team out of a wide receiver contingent that appears headed for upheaval, and new position coach Karl Dorrell has quickly become a fan. 'He was pretty dynamic wasn't he?' Dorrell said recently of Wilson. 'He's a very unique player. I'm really excited about him. .... I hear he's doing a really good job with the recovery process but you could tell when he was on the field, he had a number of ways to affect the defense and to make the defense really pay attention to where he is and things like that.'

Footballguys view: We'd be more excited about Wilson's fantasy upside in 2019 if we knew who the quarterback for the Dolphins is going to be this season. The team is expected to move on from Ryan Tannehill in 2019 with an eye on one of the quarterbacks coming out in 2020.

  Jets | N.Y.J. could pursue Antonio Brown    Tue Feb 19, 01:03 PM

The New York Jets should pursue a trade for disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown if they're serious about winning, a veteran team reporter wrote Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Footballguys view: With Brown likely to be traded from the Steelers at some point this offseason, expect a lot of teams to show interest. The Jets could use a target like Brown for young quarterback Sam Darnold.

  Cardinals | Charles Clay signs with Arizona    Tue Feb 19, 12:10 PM

Free-agent TE Charles Clay (Bills) signed a one-year contract Tuesday, Feb. 19, with the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: That didn't take long. Clay was released by the Bills just a few days ago. New Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury didn't use the tight end much in his "Air Raid" system in college. Clay will split time with Ricky Seals-Jones at the tight end position.

  Packers | Green Bay won't drastically change offense    Tue Feb 19, 03:00 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be asked to run a dramatically different offense than the one he has operated for most of his career, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.'When you take a guy like Aaron Rodgers, who is a very good football player, I mean, he's kind of one of those guys where you can kind of pretty much do a lot of everything. I think a lot of it is going to carry over. I think some of the language will be different but it's going to be a lot of the same premises for him,' Hackett told

Footballguys view: The offense is going to be tailor-made for what Rodgers likes and wants to do. Rodgers (knee, concussion) said he will be ready for the offseason program which is great news since he'll be getting used to the new coaching staff.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not expected to get tagged    Tue Feb 19, 12:16 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to receive a franchise or transition tag from the team, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: This report contradicts what other beat writers around the team are saying. Fowler is as connected as you can get to the Steelers and he feels the NFLPA would "argue such a move violates the spirit of the tag and the collective bargaining agreement." Stay tuned.

  49ers | Odell Beckham a trade target for SF?    Mon Feb 18, 11:08 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is believed to be a trade target for the San Francisco 49ers this offseason, according to's Mike Florio.

Footballguys view: Beckham just signed his big-money deal with the Giants last year. Any trade for the veteran superstar would likely come with a high price tag just to acquire him.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray would be fine with joining team    Mon Feb 18, 10:21 PM

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray said it would be fine if the Arizona Cardinals selected him in the 2019 NFL Draft because of his relationship with head coach Kliff Kingsbury but does not have any expectations. 'At the end of the day, they're going to do what's best for them,' Murray said. 'I can't go into it with any expectations of being taken by the Cardinals. That would be nice for sure.'

Footballguys view: Murray could be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He says that he's fully committed to the NFL instead of Major League Baseball (Murray was drafted by the Oakland A's). The Cardinals have the no.1 overall pick and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury previously stated (when he was a college coach) that he would select Murray at the top of the draft if he had that option. We'll see if Murray has a good performance at the 2019 Scouting Combine next week.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is able to sprint in a straight line but is still not able to do any lateral movements at full speed yet. He also wants to build the strength in his legs over the next few months.

Footballguys view: Guice missed all of his rookie season with this knee injury. He's suffered some setbacks during his recovery and may not be ready to go until near training camp. Keep an eye on this situation as Guice is a talented runner if he can regain his full strength.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Terrance Williams' option was not exercised Monday, Feb. 18, according to sources. He is now a free agent.

Footballguys view: Williams may not have much of a market when the new league year begins on March 13th. He never quite played up to his potential with the Cowboys and now will try to find a new home. In 2018, Williams played in only three games and caught just two passes for 18 yards.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco passed his physical, making it possible for the Broncos and Baltimore Ravens to make their traded official in March. The Broncos agreed to trade the better of their fourth-round picks for Flacco.

Footballguys view: The trade can become official once the new league year begins on March 13th. Flacco is an upgrade over Case Keenum so long as he's healthy. A hip injury limited him to just nine games in 2018 and Flacco did play with a back injury for most of the 2017 season.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was sought after by the New England Patriots ahead of the last season's trade deadline, according to NBC's Chris Simms, who reported New England was the team 'most aggressively pursuing' Beckham at that point of time.

Footballguys view: Beckham is rumored to be on the move this offseason. That may or may not happen, but the Giants did just sign him to a long-term deal in 2018. He's got a $21 million cap hit in 2019 and there's a whopping $35 million remaining in dead money on his contract.

  NFL | Marquise Brown to miss combine, pro day    Mon Feb 18, 01:05 PM

University of Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown (foot) will be unable to participate in the NFL Combine or at his pro day after undergoing surgery for a Lisfranc injury in January, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown is expected to be cleared in time for summer workouts, however, according to league sources.

Footballguys view: Brown is considered a top pick, and perhaps the top wide receiver, in the 2019 NFL draft. He could go off the board somewhere in the top 10-15 picks, even with this surgery. His medical checks at the combine will be huge for his draft stock.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney unlikely to reach deal    Mon Feb 18, 09:44 AM

Houston Texans impending free-agent LB Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to receive a long-term deal, in the opinion of MMQB's Peter King, because he's not the worker bee that some others are on defense.

Footballguys view: Clowney is looking to be paid as a top-5 player at his position, and he's deserving of such a contract. The Texans can get more time to work out a new deal with Clowney if they place the one-year franchise tag on him. He will have to sign that tag (or get a long-term deal) by sometime in mid-July if actually tagged.
