Free-agent QB Paxton Lynch (Broncos) was signed to an undisclosed deal by the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Lynch was a bust with the Broncos of epic proportions. A first-round pick in 2016, Lynch never could earn the starting job in Denver over backup-caliber QB Trevor Siemian. Lynch was out of football for the 2018 season but did workout for several teams. He'll get a chance to compete for the backup spot to Russell Wilson in 2019.

  Broncos | Denver hires Wade Harman    Thu Jan 17, 02:19 PM

Former Atlanta Falcons tight ends coach Wade Harman was hired by the Denver Broncos for the same position Thursday, Jan. 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Harman worked with new Broncos OC Rich Scangarello during their time with the Falcons. He comes in to take over a group that lacks healthy impact players. Jake Butt is a fine all-purpose tight end but he's coming off yet another knee injury (the third of his football career). Jeff Heuerman was the leading tight end last season but he's set to be a free agent in 2019. Needless to say, Harman has a lot of work to do.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) should not miss significant time during the offseason following his upcoming shoulder surgery, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who believes Miller will be ready to go at or near the start of the team's offseason program.

Footballguys view: Good news for the young receiver here. He injured the shoulder in Week 3 but was able to tough it out through 15 games in 2018. When Miller is ready to return, expect the Bears to take it easy on him and ease him back into action.

  Bears | Jordan Howard has little trade value?    Thu Jan 17, 12:58 AM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard holds little value if the team decides to shop him around during the offseason, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who points out Howard is in the final year of his rookie deal and that running back is one of the NFL's most replaceable positions.

Footballguys view: Howard had less than 1,000 yards rushing in 2018, the first time in his career he's fell below that mark. He just missed that total with 935 rushing yards in 2018. We'll see if the Bears want to go with a more dynamic runner in 2019. Biggs believes Howard's greatest value in 2019 would be as depth for the Bears.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was targeted 163 times during the regular season while the second highest total on the team was 45 targets.

Footballguys view: The headline can be filed under 'in other news, water is wet.' Hopkins is their passing game, and he's one of the best in the game. The team needs to keep feeding him the rock...and protect QB Deshaun Watson 2019.

  Texans | Brandon Weeden hopes to return    Wed Jan 16, 11:25 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Brandon Weeden said he hopes to re-sign with the Texans this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Texans had Weeden and Joe Webb behind Deshaun Watson this year. With Weeden potentially leaving in free agency, the Texans have to find some quarterback talent. They could always just have Weeden stick around for a good price.

  Jets | Henry Anderson may not return    Wed Jan 16, 10:35 PM

New York Jets impending free-agent DE Henry Anderson may not re-sign with the Jets if the team moves to a 4-3 defensive alignment since he is is better option for a 3-4 defense, in the opinion of's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: Gregg Williams, the Jets new defensive coordinator, has long run a 4-3 defense and that makes Anderson an odd fit. Anderson has been through a switch to a 4-3 defense when he was with the Colts and it negatively impacted his play. Expect the free agent to be to find a home elsewhere in 2019.
