Buccaneers | Mike Evans wants to improve Tue May 22, 06:36 PM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is focused on improving his awareness and his yards after catch heading into his fifth season. 'I've got another hurdle to jump over, and I think I'll be much better this year,' Evans said. 'I've got to do better in [yards after catch], and I think if I do, I'll be the most complete receiver.'
|Footballguys view: Evans had a down season in 2017 with QB Jameis Winston playing banged up. Last year, Evans fell from the no.2 fantasy WR to the no.22 fantasy WR in standard-scoring leagues. With a healthy Winston and a focused Evans, we should see him back around the top 10 at his position. Evans has a current ADP of WR9 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.|

Raiders | Oakland acquires Christian Hackenberg Tue May 22, 04:43 PM
New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg was acquired by the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, May 22, in exchange for a conditional seventh round pick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
|Footballguys view: The Raiders don't have much behind starter Derek Carr. Connor Cook or Christian Hackenberg (or E.J. Manuel) isn't a great group of quarterbacks, but that's what the Raiders have after this move. Hackenberg was so bad with the Jets that he couldn't even see the field for two years.|

Jets | Christian Hackenberg traded to Raiders Tue May 22, 04:41 PM
Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg was traded to the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, May 22, in exchange for a conditional seventh round pick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
|Footballguys view: The Jets have Sam Darnold as their QB of the future, and Hackenberg was so bad that he never saw the field in two years. They'll use Josh McCown as the starter until Darnold is ready, and Teddy Bridgewater is there as a third-string reclamation project.|

Raiders | Amari Cooper leaves OTAs Tue May 22, 04:00 PM
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) left organized team activities early Tuesday, May 22, with a hamstring ailment, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
|Footballguys view: Jon Gruden called it a 'little twing in his hamstring'...whatever that means. It doesn't sound serious, but it is disappointing given how much Cooper is banged up with nagging ailments. They'll wisely be cautious with this injury.|
Amari Cooper player page
Eagles | Mychal Kendricks released Tue May 22, 03:46 PM
Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks was released Tuesday, May 22, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: He should be designated as a post-June 1 release, leaving $1.5 million in dead money while freeing up about $6 million in cap space. Kendricks is recovering from "clean-up" ankle surgery he had back in March, but the two-down run-stuffer shouldn't be on the open market for long.|

Falcons | Julio Jones will be at minicamp Tue May 22, 03:10 PM
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be present at minicamp after skipping organized team activities, according to head coach Dan Quinn.
|Footballguys view: OTAs are voluntary, and Jones is seeking a 'correction' to his current contract situation. Minicamp is mandatory, and that is the time when Jones will show up. A superstar and centerpiece of their passing game, the Falcons should be willing to work with Jones even though he has three years remaining on his current deal.|
Julio Jones player page
Texans | Deshaun Watson ahead of schedule Tue May 22, 02:54 PM
Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) has made significant progress in his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and is considered ahead of schedule.
|Footballguys view: Great news for the Texans here. Watson flashed big-time playmaking ability as a dual-threat quarterback with 19 touchdown passes in his first six starts. Fantasy owners are licking their chops for Watson's potential in 2018. His current ADP is QB2 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.|
Deshaun Watson player page
Texans | Four Texans sitting out OTAs Tue May 22, 02:47 PM
Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee), DE J.J. Watt (leg), RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') and DE Joel Heath (knee) did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Foreman is going to push Lamar Miller for the starting job...eventually. Right now, he's still recovering from his Achilles' injury. The team remains hopeful he will be cleared in time for training camp.|

Packers | Davante Adams not practicing Tue May 22, 02:32 PM
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: This is just a precaution for the veteran receiver. Adams said himself after practice that the hamstring injury is no big deal.|

Broncos | Several Broncos not at OTAs Tue May 22, 02:08 PM
Denver Broncos TE Troy Fumagalli (undisclosed), OT Jared Veldheer (ankle), OG Ronald Leary (undisclosed), WR Jordan Taylor (hip) and DT Clinton McDonald (shoulder) are not participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Fumagalli had a sports hernia surgery after the Senior Bowl earlier this year. Broncos head coach Vance Joseph didn't seem too concerned about the rookie tight end missing voluntary work. "He's not really cleared to play yet, so we're being smart there." Joseph said.|

Patriots | Julian Edelman puts in limited work at OTAs Tue May 22, 01:09 PM
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) fielded punts and took part in some individual drills but did not participate in any team drills during OTAs on Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Edelman tore his ACL last August and missed the 2017 season because of it. They'll continue to keep him limited until we get to training camp and the preseason. Coming back from injury, Edelman has a current ADP of WR25 (5.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.|
Julian Edelman player page
Texans | Deshaun Watson throwing in OTAs Tue May 22, 12:50 PM
Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) threw during drills at OTAs on Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Watson is ahead of schedule by all indications. That's great news for the Texans and fantasy owners are falling all over themselves to draft Watson in early drafts. His current ADP is QB2 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.|
Deshaun Watson player page
Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill sheds knee brace Tue May 22, 12:39 PM
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) took part in OTAs without a knee brace Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: It's a good sign for Tannehill as he works back towards being 100 percent. The Dolphins didn't draft a quarterback in the 2018 NFL draft, so they're going all in on Tannehill one more time. He needs to not only regain his form, but also show improvement as their starter in 2018 if he wants to stick as their starter.|
Ryan Tannehill player page
Jets | Quincy Enunwa gets some work in during OTAs Tue May 22, 12:31 PM
York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) was spotted running routes on air during OTAs on Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: A good sign for the veteran receiver who missed all of the 2017 season due to this neck injury. Reports speculate he could be ready for full participation at the start of training camp.|
Quincy Enunwa player page
Eagles | Carson Wentz takes part in individual drills Tue May 22, 12:09 PM
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) saw some action during individual drills at OTAs on Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Wentz has been ahead in his recovery from the knee injury that cut his 2017 season short. He underwent surgery in mid-December last year, and even with him being ahead of schedule, Wentz's status for Week 1 of the regular season is unknown. Barring any setbacks, we could see him under center for the Eagles when Week 1 rolls around.|
Carson Wentz player page
Jets | Sam Darnold receiving all the reps Tue May 22, 11:49 AM
New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has received all 16 repetitions in 11-on-11 drills in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Darnold is a work in progress, but there is no doubt that he's the QB of the future for the Jets. We may see Josh McCown begin the season as the starter (maybe), but the team could turn things over to Darnold sooner than expected.|
Jets | Terrelle Pryor injured Tue May 22, 11:42 AM
New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor (ankle) suffered another ankle injury this offseason, and he's not participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: No word on whether this is the same ankle that held Pryor back last year for Washington. He signed a one-year deal with the Jets to prove he can play consistently at a high level. Pryor had over 1,000 yards receiving with the Browns in 2016, but last year in Washington he only mustered 240 yards receiving through nine games.|
Terrelle Pryor player page
Bengals | Carlos Dunlap a no-show Tue May 22, 11:34 AM
Cincinnati Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap is absent from organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Dunlap missed out on a $300,000 workout bonus by missing voluntary work. He's due $7 million in 2018, the final year of his contract. There's buzz about the team wanting to get him an extension before the start of the regular season.|
Carlos Dunlap player page
Jets | Teddy Bridgewater suits up Tue May 22, 11:17 AM
New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Good news for Bridgewater, but he's still recovering from his knee injury and should be limited in any practice participation. He signed a one-year deal with the Jets and is just trying to put some preseason tape out there to show other teams he can get back to his starter-level of play. Josh McCown may begin the year for the Jets as the starter, but it's clear rookie Sam Darnold is the QB of the future.|
Teddy Bridgewater player page
Eagles | Two Eagles absent Tue May 22, 10:35 AM
Philadelphia Eagles DE Michael Bennett and RB Darren Sproles are absent from organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Sproles is recovering from a torn ACL, and when healthy he could be in for a larger-than-expected role with the team. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson didn't seem too concerned about this duo missing voluntary work. "I don't have a lot of concern as far as their ability to help us win games because they're veteran players and they know how to get themselves ready to go." Pederson said.|

Michael Bennett player page
Panthers | Curtis Samuel taking part Tue May 22, 09:28 AM
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) is participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: A second-round pick in 2017, Samuel only made it through nine games as a rookie. He's raw as a route runner but when healthy Samuel can be one of the most athletic players on the field. We'll see how he can improve during his second season in the pros.|
Curtis Samuel player page
Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill to work in full Tue May 22, 08:34 AM
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will participate in full in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
|Footballguys view: Tannehill hasn't played since December 2016 as he missed all of last season due to this knee injury. At full strength, Tannehill has QB2 written all over him for fantasy owners this year. He'll be operating without Jarvis Landry (Browns) this season, but new targets like WR Danny Amendola and rookie TEs Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe should boost the Dolphins passing game.|
Ryan Tannehill player page
Browns | David Njoku slated to be full-time starter Tue May 22, 04:05 AM
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is going to be the club's full-time starter, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.
|Footballguys view: Njoku can be a seam ripper for the Browns, and he should be the primary pass catcher at the position. He's a TE2 with TE1 upside that fantasy owners like taking late in drafts. Right now, Njoku has an ADP of TE17 (13.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.|
David Njoku player page
Broncos | Jeff Heuerman likely starting TE in DEN Tue May 22, 03:04 AM
Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman is considered to be the 'likely starter' at tight end in 2018, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com. 'I've been fortunate to learn from some older tight ends the last couple of years and I'm ready,' Heuerman said. 'I'm ready to take on that leadership role, that No. 1 role and go from there.'
|Footballguys view: Heuerman doesn't inspire much confidence. A third-round pick in 2015, Heuerman has missed one full year (his rookie season) and only has 18 catches for 283 yards and two touchdowns. Injuries have been one thing to slow him down, but Heuerman only had blocker Virgil Green in front of him and couldn't beat him out. Jake Butt might emerge as the primary tight end for the Broncos, and rookie Troy Fumagalli is an interesting 'F' target who can work the middle of the field.|
Jeff Heuerman player page
Patriots | Adrian Clayborn could participate in OTAs Mon May 21, 09:34 PM
New England Patriots DE Adrian Clayborn (quad) has recovered from the minor quadriceps injury he suffered earlier in the offseason workout program, according to a source. As a result, it wouldn't be a surprise if he participated in OTAs on Tuesday, May 22, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic.
|Footballguys view: The injury was originally supposed to limit Clayborn in OTAs. Regardless of whether or not he practices, Clayborn should be full strength by the time training camp rolls around. Coming off a career high 9.5 sacks for the Falcons last year, Clayborn brings veteran punch to the Patriots pass rush.|
Adrian Clayborn player page
Rams | Josh Reynolds recovering from torn labrum Mon May 21, 09:01 PM
Los Angeles Rams WR Josh Reynolds (shoulder) underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum he suffered on a special teams play in the fourth quarter of the Wild Card loss to the Atlanta Falcons in January.
|Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Texas A&M in 2017, Reynolds ran 153 routes as a rookie, was targeted 24 times and caught 11 passes for 104 yards and one touchdown. When healthy, Reynolds is going to compete for a spot on the depth chart behind Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp.|
Josh Reynolds player page
Giants | Russell Shepard inks deal with NY Giants Mon May 21, 08:06 PM
Free-agent WR Russell Shepard (Panthers) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Giants on Monday, May 21.
|Footballguys view: Shepard is more athlete than wide receiver, and he's got only 47 catches for 634 yards and four touchdowns during his five-year pro career. He did have a career high of 23 catches with the Buccaneers back in 2016, but last year with the Panthers Shepard snared only 17 passes. The Giants are stacked at the position, so Shepard has his work cut out if he wants to make the 53-man roster.|
Russell Shepard player page
Rams | Ogbonnia Okoronkwo had surgery Mon May 21, 07:07 PM
Los Angeles Rams DE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo (foot) recently had surgery as a result of a foot injury this offseason.
|Footballguys view: The Rams added Okoronkwo in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL draft. He was a fierce edge rusher for the Sooners in college, and he'll fit right in on one of the most ferocious defenses in the NFL. Head coach Sean McVay expects Okoronkwo to participate in training camp.|
Vikings | Dalvin Cook ahead of schedule Mon May 21, 06:45 PM
Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation process. Head coach Mike Zimmer believes Cook will see work during organized team activities, but he will be limited until training camp.
|Footballguys view: Great news for the Vikings here. Cook can be the engine to the Vikings offense in 2018 and fantasy owners are excited about his prospects in year two of his career. He has a current ADP of RB10 (2.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.|
Dalvin Cook player page
Patriots | Julian Edelman practices Monday Mon May 21, 04:11 PM
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) participated in organized team activities Monday, May 21.
|Footballguys view: His level of participation may not have been that much as Edelman was expected to sit out OTAs. He had surgery to repair his ACL in September 2017 and many thought he'd just wait until training camp to get back out there. The Patriots WR corps has some changes this offseason, but Edelman should continue as one of Tom Brady's favorite targets.|
Julian Edelman player page
Raiders | Nick Nelson signs rookie deal Mon May 21, 03:26 PM
Oakland Raiders fourth-round draft choice CB Nick Nelson signed a four-year contract with the Raiders Monday, May 21. Financial terms were not disclosed.
|Footballguys view: Nelson is a hyper-competitive player who can make a play on the ball. He had a whopping 42 pass break ups during his college career (Hawaii and Wisconsin) and he set a record for the Badgers with 21 PBUs in 2017. It's interesting to note that Nelson never had an interception in college, even though he was breaking up passes and generally around the ball if it came his way. He played right cornerback in college, but will be looking to work his way on the field for the Raiders in defensive subpackages as a rookie.|
Jets | Chris Herndon agrees to terms Mon May 21, 02:32 PM
New York Jets fourth-round draft choice TE Chris Herndon agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Jets Monday, May 21, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.
|Footballguys view: Herndon had season-ending knee surgery (MCL) last year in college with the Miami Hurricanes. When healthy, the 6'3" 255 pound tight end does a good job of creating space after the catch. A former basketball star, Herndon knows how to use his body to 'box out' defenders. Jordan Leggett may have a leg up in the competition to start for the Jets at the TE position, but Herndon could put up a good fight.|
Giants | Landon Collins on the sidelines Mon May 21, 02:26 PM
New York Giants SS Landon Collins (forearm) reported for organized team activities Monday, May 21, but did not participate in any of the workouts because of his forearm.
|Footballguys view: A smart move for the Giants. Collins has had his forearm repaired twice in the last six months. The injury was originally repaired last December but the bone didn't heal properly so another surgery was performed in April.|
Landon Collins player page
Giants | Ereck Flowers on the field Mon May 21, 02:20 PM
New York Giants OT Ereck Flowers participated in organized team activities Monday, May 21.
|Footballguys view: Flowers had been staying away from the team this offseason. He was reportedly unhappy the team went out and signed left tackle Nate Solder to take his place. Flowers should start at right tackle for the Giants in 2018, and that may be his best spot on the line since he struggled so much protecting Eli Manning's blind side.|
Giants | Damon Harrison absent Mon May 21, 02:20 PM
New York Giants DT Damon Harrison was not present for organized team activities Monday, May 21.
|Footballguys view: New Giants head coach didn't seem too worried about Harrison's absence. "He's been here a little bit," Shurmur told reporters. "I know he's not here and I know why he's not here and I'll leave it at that." There are no known contract issues with Harrison, and he's signed through the 2020 season. Harrison was the only Giants player not in attendance for OTAs on Monday.|
Damon Harrison player page
Seahawks | Earl Thomas not at workouts Mon May 21, 02:00 PM
Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas is not with the team for the start of organized team activities, and the Seahawks had an idea that he would not report.
|Footballguys view: Set to make $8.5 million in 2018, Thomas was shopped this offseason and mainly pursued by the Dallas Cowboys. The Seahawks are not scheduled to have any contract talks with Thomas at this point.|
Earl Thomas player page
Patriots | NE looking to rework Rob Gronkowski's deal Mon May 21, 01:39 PM
The New England Patriots are working on restructuring TE Rob Gronkowski's contract.
|Footballguys view: Gronkowski restructured last year on May 24th and by league rule he can't sign a reworked deal (with incentives) again until one year has passed. He's got two years left on his current contract, and we should see the Patriots play ball with their superstar tight end.|
Rob Gronkowski player page
Saints | Tre'Quan Smith signs deal Mon May 21, 01:25 PM
New Orleans Saints third-round draft choice WR Tre'Quan Smith signed a four-year deal with the Saints Monday, May 21. Financial terms were not disclosed.
|Footballguys view: While in college at UCF, Smith drew comparisons to Allen Robinson (Bears) in the scouting community. Smith has strong hands and the concentration to win against tight coverage - especially in the red zone as noted by his 13 receiving touchdowns in 2017. While not a burner, Smith can accelerate quickly and presents a large target for his quarterback. Smith is buried on the depth chart right now, and he's competing for the 4th spot at the WR position behind Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Cameron Meredith. We love his upside in dynasty formats.|
Falcons | Julio Jones misses workout Mon May 21, 01:19 PM
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was not present for organized team activities Monday, May 21, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: Signed through the 2020 season, Jones is reportedly seeking an 'update' to his contract status. He's the centerpiece of the Falcons passing game, so we could see the team work to get their superstar more money. Jones is on the books for $10.5 million in 2018.|
Julio Jones player page
Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely for OTAs Mon May 21, 01:15 PM
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell still has not signed his franchise tender offer and is not expected to participate in organized team activities.
|Footballguys view: No surprise here. Franchise tagged for the second year in a row, Bell is looking for a long-term contract with the Steelers. Reports indicate talks have broken off, but the two sides have until mid-July to get something done. If no contract agreement can be reached by that time, expect Bell to hold out into training camp and the preseason.|
LeVeon Bell player page
Steelers | Jonathan Bostic should start Mon May 21, 12:54 PM
Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jonathan Bostic likely will start at inside linebacker this upcoming season because the team did not add any competition for him during free agency or the 2018 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: That's the plan, and the Steelers signed Bostic to a two-year deal back in March. Bostic should start at inside linebacker to take the place of Ryan Shazier as he recovers from a serious spinal injury.|
Ravens | Brent Urban still recovering Mon May 21, 12:47 PM
Baltimore Ravens DE Brent Urban (foot) is still recovering from the foot injury he suffered last season but should be back on the field for training camp at the latest.
|Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick for the Ravens in 2014, Urban signed a one-year contract with the team earlier this offseason. The Lisfranc injury he suffered in 2017 limited him to only three games (all starts). We'll see what kind of participation level he can have during training camp in August.|
Brent Urban player page
Ravens | Kenneth Dixon participating Mon May 21, 12:40 PM
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been participating in offseason workouts and should be ready for organized team activities.
|Footballguys view: Dixon is coming back from a torn meniscus that cost him the entire 2017 season. He'll compete for a spot on the depth chart behind lead back Alex Collins.|
Kenneth Dixon player page
Jets | Teddy Bridgewater expected to be limited Mon May 21, 12:39 PM
New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) likely will be limited during organized team activities, but he is further along in his recovery than most people believe, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: The Jets will be cautious with Bridgewater as he continues to recover from his knee injury. Signed to a one-year deal earlier this offseason, Bridgewater is no long-term solution for the Jets (that's rookie Sam Darnold). He's just trying to get healthy and show he can still play in the pros. The team is hoping that Bridgewater will be a full participant when training camp starts.|
Teddy Bridgewater player page
Bills | Jeremy Kerley top option for slot Mon May 21, 12:23 PM
Buffalo Bills WR Jeremy Kerley will enter offseason workouts as the leading candidate for the slot receiver job but will compete with WRs Ray-Ray McCloud and Austin Proehl for the job.
|Footballguys view: That was to be expected when Kerley signed with the Bills in mid-April. He'll compete to be the team's slot receiver while also contributing as a return man. There's not much fantasy value for the slot receiver (no matter who wins the job) in Buffalo.|
Jeremy Kerley player page
NFL | Junior Galette may retire Mon May 21, 12:03 PM
Free-agent LB Junior Galette (Redskins) has received some offers this offseason but has not signed with a team because he is considering retirement.
|Footballguys view: Three offers on the table for Galette to be exact, but it sounds like they aren't enough for the veteran pass rusher. He was injured for all of 2015 and 2016, but he played for Washington in 2017 and notched 3.0 sacks and 20 total tackles as a part-time player. We'll see if he walks away from the game or is tempted to play for another team in 2018.|
Junior Galette player page
Cowboys | Michael Gallup signs Mon May 21, 11:49 AM
Dallas Cowboys third-round pick WR Michael Gallup signed his rookie four-year deal Monday, May 21. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
|Footballguys view: Gallup is an exciting rookie WR for fantasy owners to monitor. He's capable of making crazy catches seem routine, and Gallup has no problem working the sidelines or the back of the end zone. Without Dez Bryant, the Cowboys are looking for a no.1 receiver and that could eventually be Gallup. He's currently a favorite late-round pick with a current ADP of WR67 (14.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.|
Rams | Aaron Donald not showing up Mon May 21, 09:31 AM
Los Angeles Rams DT Aaron Donald won't attend organized team activities Monday, May 21.
|Footballguys view: Donald is set to make around $6.8 million in the final year of his rookie contract. The 2018 Defensive Player of the Year is seriously underpaid but lacks leverage in the situation. He must report to the team a month before the start of the regular season if he wants to become a free agent in 2019. The Rams could franchise him for two years in a row after this season if need be. Both sides should work to come to an agreement before the start of training camp, but there's no telling the distance in negotiations at this time.|
Aaron Donald player page
Patriots | Tom Brady absent Mon May 21, 08:46 AM
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady won't report to organized team activities Monday, May 21, but he's expected to report to mandatory camp in June.
|Footballguys view: This absence has stirred up some drama around the superstar quarterback. He reportedly is going to spend more time with his family and his workout guru Alex Guerrero instead of showing up to OTAs. There are plenty of questions about his future, but when mandatory workouts begin we should see Brady in attendance.|
Tom Brady player page
Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. in attendance Mon May 21, 08:12 AM
Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is present at organized team activities Monday, May 21.
|Footballguys view: Beckham was at voluntary workouts for the Giants, so it's no surprise he would show up at OTAs. He's in the final year of his contract and set to make around $8.4 million this year, but Beckham wants a new deal. We'll see how much the two sides are willing to get something worked out, but Beckham is clearly playing nice with his team. He's still recovering from an ankle injury, so Beckham may be eased into action as the offseason rolls along.|
