Cowboys | Amari Cooper happy with chemistry with QB Mon Apr 22, 08:25 PM
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper said he has natural chemistry with QB Dak Prescott and believes they can be more productive this upcoming season.
|Footballguys view: Cooper said he has been working out with Prescott this offseason to strengthen their chemistry. That should lead to better production and perhaps more consistent production for the Cowboys duo in 2019.|

Steelers | Coach expects more from James Washington Mon Apr 22, 08:00 PM
Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington will have a bigger role in the passing game in 2019, and head coach Mike Tomlin said he expects great things from Washington.
|Footballguys view: Washington has talent but didn't flash much as a rookie in 2018. He's got long arms and great ball-tracking ability which can be featured on big throws down the field. With Antonio Brown (Raiders) traded away, the Steelers are looking for talent to elevate at the wide receiver position behind JuJu Smith-Schuster.|

NFL | No knee brace for Dwayne Haskins Mon Apr 22, 07:50 PM
Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins wore a knee brace this past season for health precautions but said he does not plan to wear a brace in the NFL.
|Footballguys view: Good news for Haskins here. He's not a mobile quarterback and won't make anyone miss on the ground. Haskins is a pocket passer who does a good job of getting the ball out on time to the first or initial read. Problems arise when Haskins is asked to abandon the pocket or work off-script. Haskins will be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.|
NFL | Dawson Knox may be early Day 2 pick Mon Apr 22, 04:52 PM
Mississippi TE Dawson Knox has met with or visited 13 teams this spring and impressed them with his athleticism and upside. According to DraftAnalyst.com's Tony Pauline, the 'belief is that Knox could end up being the fourth tight end off the board and land in the top half of Round 2.'
|Footballguys view: We could see that happening, so long as the top three tight ends (T.J. Hockenson, Noah Fant, Irv Smith Jr.) go off the board ahead of him...perhaps all in the first round. Knox never scored a touchdown in college but many in the scouting community feel he was never used the right way in the Rebels offense. Nagging injuries have plagued him since high school, but Knox has a willingness to learn and an aggressive mindset on the field...something that should appeal to plenty of teams out there.|
NFL | Will Grier could sneak into first round? Mon Apr 22, 04:35 PM
West Virginia QB Will Grier could potentially be drafted 'as early as the late part of Round 1 and no later than the middle portion of the second frame,' according to DraftAnalyst.com's Tony Pauline, who lists the New England Patriots, New York Giants and Carolina Panthers as the teams most likely to select him.
|Footballguys view: We believe Grier has quite a bit to like about his game. He's competitive and does not go away quietly. Instead, Grier is known to go down swinging and won't hesitate to challenge a defense. Throw in his accuracy and sneaky athleticism and you can see some team late in the first round falling for him...or perhaps some team will trade back into the end of the first round to add him.|
NFL | Jerry Tillery ahead of schedule Mon Apr 22, 11:19 AM
Notre Dame DT Jerry Tillery (shoulder) is ahead of schedule from his March 6 shoulder surgery and is expected to be ready in full in early July. Tillery visited top shoulder doctor, Peter Millett, in Vail, Colo., when he received the report.
|Footballguys view: Tillery is set to be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's got the size (6'6" 295 pounds) to be a run-stuffer in the middle of the line...but that's not his best skill. Tillery is disruptive inside as a pass rusher and can get pressure on the quarterback from the middle of the line.|
Bills | T.J. Yeldon signs with Bills Mon Apr 22, 08:24 AM
Free-agent RB T.J. Yeldon (Jaguars) signed a two-year deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, April 22. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
|Footballguys view: Yet another veteran addition for the Bills here. Yeldon is behind LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore on the depth chart in Buffalo, but he could carve himself out a role. He's somewhat disappointed as a runner in the pros, but Yeldon could catch 40 or so passes for the Bills out of the backfield.|
T.J. Yeldon player page
Jets | Big pass-rush prospects visit Gang Green Mon Apr 22, 01:25 AM
Ohio State DE Nick Bosa, Washington State OT Andre Dillard, Iowa TE Noah Fant, Michigan DE Rashan Gary, Texas A&M C Erik McCoy, University of Houston NT Ed Oliver, Florida LB Jachai Polite, Alabama OT Jonah Williams and Alabama DT Quinnen Williams were the notable visitors as the New York Jets completed their top-30 pre-draft visits.
|Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.3 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. A pass rusher should be high on their priority list if they don't trade out of that pick.|
Patriots | Top prospect TEs meet with Pats Mon Apr 22, 01:15 AM
Iowa TE Noah Fant and Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger have scheduled or have take pre-draft visits with the New England Patriots.
|Footballguys view: The Patriots are looking for tight end help even though they added Matt LaCosse and Austin Seferian-Jenkins in free agency earlier this offseason. We won't be shocked if they add a tight end in the first or second round of the 2019 NFL draft.|
Redskins | Washington in need of a QB Sun Apr 21, 01:23 PM
The Washington Redskins have QBs Case Keenum and Colt McCoy, but are still in need of a long-term solution at the position, and they are expected to spend a high-round draft pick on the position this week. 'There's a lot of guys up there, whether we're at (No.) 15 or we move up or we move back or what have you,' senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said. 'You're always open. This is a quarterback league. You could never shut the door on a quarterback.'
|Footballguys view: We're expecting Washington to add a quarterback, perhaps in the first round, in the 2019 NFL draft. They have the no.15 overall pick and might even want to move up a bit to secure a prospect like Drew Lock (Missouri) or Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State).|
Seahawks | First-round pick sought for Frank Clark Sun Apr 21, 12:11 PM
Seattle Seahawks DE Frank Clark remains under consideration for a trade, and if a deal is struck before the start of the draft Thursday, April 25, Seattle would demand at least a first-round pick in return, according to a league source.
|Footballguys view: The Jets and the Bills have been linked to Clark, but both of those teams have top-10 picks in the 2019 NFL draft...so trading those picks (no.3 and no.9 respectively) would not make a lot of sense.|
Frank Clark player page
Steelers | Pittsburgh could trade up Sun Apr 21, 10:29 AM
Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II has not ruled out the possibility of trading up in the 2019 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: The team currently holds the 20th overall pick in the first round and has 10 selections overall. There might be some player like a Devin Bush (ILB, Michigan) that interests the Steelers more than others and who won't be there when they pick at 20. The draft is certain to be full of twists and turns starting on Thursday.|
Cardinals | Arizona not targeting Kyler Murray? Sat Apr 20, 11:11 PM
Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is no longer likely to be selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, according to Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com. 'All of a sudden, they are pulling back, and from what I've been told, they are going to go in a different direction,' Prisco said. 'They are not going to draft Kyler Murray.'
|Footballguys view: Less than a week before the draft and that's a bold proclamation. Everything seemed to have the Cardinals leaning towards taking Murray no.1 overall. If that's not the case, then perhaps a team like Miami (no.13 overall) would be in place later in the first round. The Raiders (no.4 overall) could also be interested if Murray doesn't go off the board first.|
Bears | Chicago checks out Devin Singletary's hands Sat Apr 20, 10:35 PM
Florida Atlantic RB Devin Singletary said his private workout with the Chicago Bears focused mainly on pass routes and catching the ball out of the backfield.
|Footballguys view: Singletary's last year at FAU saw him only catch six passes on the season. He did have 51 receptions total in three years at Florida Atlantic. Singletary did have some focus drops through college and that's something the Bears were wanting to see if he'd worked on through the pre-draft process. Any back in Matt Nagy's offense needs to be a capable receiver, and Singletary could be a target for the Bears around the fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft.|
Rams | Malcolm Brown praised by Todd Gurley Sat Apr 20, 09:13 PM
Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown has 'always been reliable' when called upon, according to RB Todd Gurley. 'If I go out, he's doing the exact same thing,' Gurley said.
|Footballguys view: Brown certainly has talent as a runner when healthy. Last season, Brown was banged up with a collarbone injury that landed him on Injured Reserve after 12 games. The Rams re-signed Brown to a two-year, $3.25 million contract earlier this offseason and he'll be the primary backup to Todd Gurley in 2019.|

NFL | Benjamin Watson rethinking retirement plans? Sat Apr 20, 07:38 PM
Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Saints) is considering a return in 2019, according to sources, after previously stating 2018 would be his last year. Watson, whose wife is due to deliver twins next week, could return for his 16th NFL season 'under the right situation.'
|Footballguys view: The right situation is probably not with the Saints as they added Jared Cook this offseason. Perhaps a team like the Patriots would be willing to take a look at Watson (again). Watson was a first-round pick of the Patriots back in the 2004 NFL draft.|
Ben Watson player page
NFL | Daniel Jones gets lofty comparison Sat Apr 20, 05:52 PM
NFL draft prospect Duke QB Daniel Jones drew a comparison to NFL great QB Peyton Manning from Hall of Fame NFL scout Gil Brandt. 'I. Love. Dan Jones,' Brandt said Saturday, April 20. 'I have to say this carefully: When you watch him and you go back (20) years and watch Peyton Manning, you are watching the same guy. He's athletic. He doesn't have a rocket for an arm, but neither did Peyton. Very smart.'
|Footballguys view: We respect the hell out of Gil Brandt but this is a comparison that is quite uncomfortable...like comparing a running back to Barry Sanders. Jones is going to go in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft because of his intelligence and his athleticism. As a passer, Jones is far too inconsistent to be compared to one of the 'Mount Rushmore' quarterbacks like Peyton Manning.|
Rams | Jared Goff not worried about contract Sat Apr 20, 02:54 PM
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff said he is not worried about his contract situation and believes he will receive a lucrative contract if he continues to play well. The Rams are expected to exercise the fifth-year option in Goff's contract this offseason.
|Footballguys view: Goff is under the team's control through the 2020 season if/when they pick up his fifth-year option. He'll need to continue to play well if he wants that big money deal. We expect that Goff will get extended at some time but there's no real hurry to get the deal done at this time.|
Jared Goff player page
NFL | Montez Sweat will not attend draft Sat Apr 20, 01:52 PM
Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat was originally scheduled to attend the 2019 NFL Draft but has decided to watch the draft with his family and will not attend, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: There are rumblings about medical concerns due to a heart condition with Sweat. Some think he'll still be a top-10 pick, and based on tape that is certainly a good grade for his talent as a pass rusher. IF these medical concerns are true, Sweat might fall out of the first round. There's no need for him to sit there in the green room waiting for his name to be called if that's the case.|
Cowboys | Dallas shows interest in Deebo Samuel Sat Apr 20, 12:18 PM
South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel had a pre-draft visit with the Dallas Cowboys and also participated in a private workout with the team on the South Carolina campus.
|Footballguys view: We could see Samuel as a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Samuel is a bully on the field and can rip away contested catches from defenders. He's basically a running back after the catch and going to be exciting to watch as a pro. The Cowboys need more weapons in the WR corps behind Amari Cooper.|
Raiders | Oakland sends scouts home Sat Apr 20, 10:57 AM
The Oakland Raiders sent their scouts home for the weekend Friday, April 19, and they are not expected to return by draft time because head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock reportedly didn't know who could be trusted, according to multiple sources.
|Footballguys view: Just bug the building like former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli did (allegedly). In all seriousness, this is an ...interesting move for the Raiders new top man. The Raiders have three first-round picks this year and two more next year. They are in place to add quality talent to a roster that has constantly been upgraded this offseason. Don't be surprised if the Raiders continue to remodel their scouting department after the draft.|
Packers | Green Bay may consider first-round QB Sat Apr 20, 01:52 AM
The Green Bay Packers could use their second first-round selection, 30th overall, on a quarterback if one they like falls in the draft, according to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, who mentions the team's recent interest in Missouri QB Drew Lock and Duke QB Daniel Jones.
|Footballguys view: Recent mocks have Jones seeing his stock rise while Lock has seen his stock fall. Now, these are mocks and not to be taken too seriously. However, this report is something to keep an eye on. The Packers have Aaron Rodgers as their starter, and he's one of the best in the game when healthy. They may be trying to find an heir apparent or a talented backup to have ready in case Rodgers gets banged up again.|
Lions | Detroit meets with Devin Singletary Fri Apr 19, 11:21 PM
Florida Atlantic RB Devin Singletary met with the Detroit Lions ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Singletary's game is all about after contract. Last year for FAU, Singletary had over 1,000 rush yards after contact and he knows how to get the most out of every carry. We should see Singletary go off the board in the fourth or fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft.|
Vikings | Dalvin Cook feeling confident, healthy Fri Apr 19, 10:43 PM
Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook said he hasn't 'scratched the surface' of his potential yet. 'I'm getting back to how I used to feel,' Cook said. 'My confidence is out the roof. I feel great. I've had a great offseason.'
|Footballguys view: Everybody knows that Cook has plenty of talent, the question has been about his durability. Cook has only played in 15 games in two seasons as a pro. He made it through 11 games last year with the Vikings. If healthy for a full season, Cook has the ability to be a RB1 for Fantasy GMs.|
Dalvin Cook player page
Bears | Myles Gaskin met with Chicago Fri Apr 19, 10:29 PM
Washington RB Myles Gaskin said he had a private visit with the Chicago Bears ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Reports have come in over the last two weeks that the Bears will be looking for running back help in the 2019 NFL draft. Gaskin is likely to go off the board early on the final day of the draft, probably in the fourth round. He lacks prototypical size for a pro running back but Gaskin has great feet and can weave in and out of trouble.|
NFL | Gary Jennings a big-play weapon? Fri Apr 19, 09:54 PM
West Virginia WR Gary Jennings said he knows how to use his combination of size and speed to create big plays. 'I love going for a big shot down the field,' Jennings said. 'However, I am able to go across the middle as well. I can create a lot of different mismatches all over the field.'
|Footballguys view: Jennings suffered a high ankle sprain last year for the Mountaineers and that lowered the numbers he had from the previous season, but make no mistake about it; this kid is dangerous with the rock. He can work as a possession receiver with great speed after the catch, and Jennings can also be used effectively as a return man. Jennings should go off the board as early as the third round and as late as the fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft.|
Ravens | Jordan Lasley working with QB Fri Apr 19, 09:24 PM
Baltimore Ravens WR Jordan Lasley spent time this offseason training with QB Lamar Jackson.
|Footballguys view: Lasley was a fifth-round pick of the Ravens coming out of UCLA in the 2018 NFL draft. He made the 53-man roster but was inactive for all of his rookie season last year. Lasley is going to compete with guys like Seth Roberts to be the no.4 wide receiver for the Ravens in 2019. We'll continue to monitor his progress in deep dynasty leagues.|
Jordan Lasley player page
NFL | Daniel Jones the top QB? Fri Apr 19, 09:12 PM
Duke QB Daniel Jones is considered the No. 1 quarterback prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft by at least one team, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.
|Footballguys view: All it takes is one team to fall in love with you in the first round, and apparently that's what has happened to Jones. He's athletic, smart and well built for the position but Jones is maddeningly inconsistent as a passer and doesn't have a rocket arm. Fit is everything in the pros, and we'll be curious to see where Jones lands...likely in the first round at some point.|
Lions | T.J. Hockenson may be first-round option Fri Apr 19, 06:04 PM
Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson likely will be an option for the Detroit Lions in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, in the opinion of the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett.
|Footballguys view: Hockenson has drawn comparisons to Rob Gronkowski in the pre-draft process. He may not be Gronk (who is?) but Hockenson can play at a high level. Hockenson is aggressive as a blocker, nuanced as a route runner and has strong hands. We should be talking about him plenty on Sundays.|
Seahawks | No timetable for Doug Baldwin Fri Apr 19, 05:57 PM
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hernia, knee, shoulder) is recovering from multiple surgeries, and there is no timetable for his return, according to general manager John Schneider.
|Footballguys view: Baldwin should be ready to go some time near training camp. His injury situation clouds his fantasy value but certainly the veteran can be a favorite target for QB Russell Wilson when healthy.|
Doug Baldwin player page
NFL | Marquise Brown a lock for the first round? Fri Apr 19, 03:56 PM
Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown is a 'surefire first-rounder,' according to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, who spoke with multiple scouts and executives.
|Footballguys view: That's likely to be correct. Brown is dangerous in the open field and a weapon teams can feature because of his run-after-the-catch ability. He's going to be a fantasy asset to keep an eye on.|
Buccaneers | Cameron Brate's recovery going well Fri Apr 19, 01:45 PM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) says he is back running and catching passes without pain after undergoing surgery to repair a torn hip labrum earlier this offseason.
|Footballguys view: Brate said the injury originally occurred in 2017, but he decided to play though the pain in the 2018 season instead of cutting his campaign short to have surgery.|
Cameron Brate player page
NFL | Bryce Love's knee health a concern Fri Apr 19, 01:28 PM
Former Stanford RB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Bryce Love's stiff knee is a concern for NFL teams as they worry about Love being able to regain the movement and explosiveness he showed before undergoing ACL reconstruction in the 2018 season.
|Footballguys view: Love has talent but his injury history might scare off some teams. If healthy, Love could prove to be a value pick...likely near the end of the draft.|
Patriots | Tom Brady excelled on third down Fri Apr 19, 01:21 PM
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady tied Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes with nine big-time throws on third-and-long situations in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
|Footballguys view: Brady is still near the top of his game. Quarterbacks earn their keep in the red zone and on third down. Brady is excellent in both areas and should continue to be so in 2019.|
Tom Brady player page
Colts | Eric Ebron topped TEs in red zone Fri Apr 19, 12:17 PM
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron was the league's highest-graded tight end in the red zone in the 2018 season with a Pro Football Focus grade of 85.7.
|Footballguys view: Ebron had a whopping 13 touchdowns in 2018 and that's why he finished as a top-5 fantasy tight end. We'll see if he can duplicate that success moving forward in 2019 as a favorite target in the red zone for QB Andrew Luck.|
Eric Ebron player page
Texans | Jadeveon Clowney extension still the plan Fri Apr 19, 11:13 AM
Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney is still in the team's plans to sign a long-term deal, according to general manager Brian Gaine.
|Footballguys view: Clowney wants a new deal and the two sides have until mid-July to work something out. Deals get done at deadlines in the NFL, so we likely won't have any answer on this until that time.|
Jadeveon Clowney player page
Broncos | No timetable for Jake Butt Thu Apr 18, 10:11 PM
Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) still doesn't have a timetable for when he may be able to return, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
|Footballguys view: Butt might not be ready to start the regular season. He's talented as a 'Y' tight end and can be featured as a blocker or receiver. Butt has now injured his knees three times in his football career...it's the reason he fell to the fifth round of the draft a couple of years ago. Don't be surprised if the Broncos take a tight end in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.|
Jake Butt player page
Giants | Kyle Lauletta falling out of favor Thu Apr 18, 10:03 PM
New York Giants QB Kyle Lauletta is barely mentioned when the team discusses potential quarterback options, according to Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media, and Dunleavy believes Lauletta could be left off the roster all together in 2019.
|Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Lauletta was an interesting late-round quarterback in last year's draft but he's done little to impress. Add in his trouble with the law, and you can see why the Giants may be moving on. Expect the Giants to add a developmental QB of the future in the 2019 NFL draft, perhaps in the first round (not at no.6 overall but at no.17...or they move up).|
Giants | Paul Perkins future in doubt Thu Apr 18, 09:58 PM
New York Giants RB Paul Perkins will have to beat out either RB Wayne Gallman or RB Robert Martin in order to make the roster in 2019, in the opinion of Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media.
|Footballguys view: Perkins has failed to play up to expectations as a pro. He drew some Jamaal Charles comparisons when he came out of UCLA in the 2016 NFL draft...and he's nowhere close to that with the Giants. Perkins is no lock for the 53-man roster in 2019.|
Paul Perkins player page
Falcons | Austin Hooper excited for 2019 Thu Apr 18, 09:53 PM
Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper said he likes the passing attack for 2019 and is excited to work with tight ends coach Mike Mularkey.
|Footballguys view: Hooper came through for Fantasy GMs last year, finishing as the no.7 fantasy tight end in standard scoring leagues. We'll see if he can stay on that production level...and perhaps add some more touchdowns in 2019.|
Austin Hooper player page
Texans | Keke Coutee aiming to stay healthy Thu Apr 18, 09:46 PM
Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee said his main goal for the 2019 season is to be able to play all 16 games.
|Footballguys view: That would be nice. Coutee is a dangerous playmaker with the ball in his hands. The Texans need a threat other than DeAndre Hopkins to emerge...and stay healthy...in the passing game. Coutee will compete with Will Fuller for that role, even though Fuller is more of a no.2 WR and Coutee is more of a no.3 WR.|
Keke Coutee player page
Redskins | Paul Richardson reveals injuries Thu Apr 18, 09:35 PM
Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) said the shoulder injury that ended his 2018 season prematurely involved multiple fractures to his clavicle and required a metal plate to be inserted during surgery.
|Footballguys view: Richardson is one of the most injury prone players in the league. He's talented, fast and can be a threat downfield but Richardson has been banged up quite a bit during his pro career and even dating back to his college days at Colorado.|
Paul Richardson Jr player page
Browns | Duke Johnson not at workouts Thu Apr 18, 06:37 PM
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson has not been present for offseason workouts this week, and general manager John Dorsey said he is not sure if Johnson will participate in the minicamp next week.
|Footballguys view: Johnson may want to be traded away after the team added Kareem Hunt, but the Browns don't have to do that right now. We imagine Johnson plays elsewhere in 2019 as there's no much room for him in the backfield when Hunt is back from his 8-game suspension. Stay tuned.|
Duke Johnson Jr player page
Steelers | Marquise Brown would love to play for PIT Thu Apr 18, 06:29 PM
Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown said he would love to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers even though he is the cousin of Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown.
|Footballguys view: Breaking news; every rookie before the draft would love to play for any team in the league. Brown is dangerous after the catch and electric in the open field. He's set to be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft and would love to play anywhere...even for the Steelers.|
Antonio Brown player page
Dolphins | Kalen Ballage looking for starting job Thu Apr 18, 05:34 PM
Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage said he hopes to compete with RB Kenyan Drake for the starting job during training camp.
|Footballguys view: Ballage has the skill set to be a starter in the league. He's big, swift and can be used as a receiver out of the backfield. While not a powerful runner, Ballage is tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. He'll compete with Kenyan Drake for touches in the Dolphins backfield this season.|
Kalen Ballage player page
NFL | Several teams interested in Darrell Henderson Thu Apr 18, 05:20 PM
Memphis RB Darrell Henderson met with the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Henderson gets it done, even though he's not the biggest or most natural running back out there. He's a big play waiting to happen and is tough to bring down even though he doesn't run with great balance. Sometimes out of control because of his speed, Henderson doesn't beat you with moves on top of moves. Instead, he finds a lane, hits the gas and is gone. He's best suited as a speed/complementary back at the pro level and certainly has fantasy value because of his knack for making big plays as a runner or receiver out of the backfield.|
NFL | Jace Sternberger met with 14 teams Thu Apr 18, 02:26 PM
Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger visited with nine teams - Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs - and worked out with five others - Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans - since the NFL Combine, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
|Footballguys view: Sternberger is an interesting mid-round tight end in the 2019 NFL draft. He's not a blocker, even though he is willing to get his nose dirty. Sternberger instead plays like a super-sized wide receiver with good speed and ball skills.|
Texans | D'Onta Foreman in good condition Thu Apr 18, 02:09 PM
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) returned to the team in good shape, according to general manager Brian Gaine.
|Footballguys view: Foreman only appeared in two games in 2018, including the playoffs. His second season was lost due to this injury but now that he's healthy Foreman should push Lamar Miller for playing time. Pay attention to this battle, and Foreman's effectiveness, in the preseason.|
D'Onta Foreman player page
Cardinals | Josh Rosen says he'll respect decision Thu Apr 18, 01:13 PM
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has been the subject of trade rumors with the team reportedly eyeing Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1-overall draft pick, broke his media silence recently during an interview with Sports Illustrated TV. 'I think when people talk about, like, you can't listen to criticism or don't ever read articles, you have to be aware of what's going on to a certain extent,' Rosen said in a short video clip of the segment posted on Twitter . 'So I definitely understand the situation. I mean it's annoying, but it is what it is. Football is a business, and I definitely respect the higher-ups and their decisions.'
|Footballguys view: Rosen doesn't have a choice. The Cardinals may move him on draft day, especially since most believe they will take QB Kyler Murray with the no.1 overall pick. Rosen could find himself in a situation with a team (like the Chargers?) where he has to be a backup and wait for his turn to start again. That's not necessarily a bad thing for the young passer.|

Dolphins | DeVante Parker happy in Miami Thu Apr 18, 01:01 PM
MIami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker says he's happy the Dolphins retained him, saying he's fully healthy and ready for 'a fresh start.'
|Footballguys view: It was unusual and unexpected when the Dolphins extended Parker's contract this offseason. He's coming off a career low 24 catches for 309 receiving yards. The new coaching staff in Miami is willing to give him a chance. Parker has talent but has struggled with consistency and durability during his pro career.|
