  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.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence won't sign tag    Tue Feb 19, 03:21 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The veteran pass rusher has made this known for about a year. Lawrence signed the franchise tag last year and is waiting for a long-term deal. The last day for franchise tags to be used is March 5.

  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.

  Steelers | PIT to work on trading Antonio Brown    Tue Feb 19, 11:25 AM

Updating an earlier report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has received word that the team will attempt to trade him, but he has not received permission to speak to other teams.

Footballguys view: The disgruntled receiver met with Steelers owner Art Rooney II on Tuesday. Brown should receive permission to talk to other teams in the near future. He's due a $2.5 million bonus on March 17th and Brown could be traded by then.

  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 PackersNews.com.

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 ProFootballTalk.com'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.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice still has work to do    Mon Feb 18, 09:25 PM

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.

  Dolphins | Frank Gore's status uncertain    Mon Feb 18, 08:05 PM

Miami Dolphins running backs coach Eric Studesville said he is not sure if impending free-agent RB Frank Gore will receive a contract offer from the Dolphins this offseason.

Footballguys view: We're not sure if Gore is going to keep playing for the Dolphins. The team seems to be tanking in 2019 so they can secure a good quarterback in the 2020 NFL draft.

  Cowboys | Terrance Williams has option declined    Mon Feb 18, 04:18 PM

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. A foot fracture (and a three-game suspension) ended his 2018 season prematurely.

  Broncos | Joe Flacco passes physical    Mon Feb 18, 03:23 PM

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.

  Patriots | Pats pursued Odell Beckham during season    Mon Feb 18, 01:25 PM

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.

  NFL | Andy Isabella special after catch    Sun Feb 17, 09:03 PM

Massachusetts WR Andy Isabella credits playing running back in high school for his ability to make plays after the catch. 'I'm used to having the ball and making plays in the open field,' Isabella said. 'I'm used to running with the ball in my hands and trying to avoid defenders.

Footballguys view: Isabella led the nation with a whopping 1,698 receiving yards in 2018. From that total, 746 yards were after the catch. Isabella averaged 7.31 yards after the catch per reception in 2018. He's considered a mid-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  NFL | Jace Sternberger an early-round pick?    Sun Feb 17, 08:36 PM

Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger catches 'everything throw to him,' according to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com, and Jeremiah believes Sternberger will be selected in the first three rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Sternberger was a one-year wonder for the Aggies, having transferred from Kansas (with one year in JUCO). During his one season with Texas A&M, Sternberger 48 passes for 832 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's a high-effort player and clearly has a nose for the end zone. Sternberger should come off the board between rounds three and round five.

  NFL | Mecole Hardman drawing interest    Sun Feb 17, 08:30 PM

Georgia WR Mecole Hardman's speed is starting to generate 'buzz in personnel circles' ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Hardman is one of the most explosive players in the 2019 NFL draft. He's only played wide receiver for two years at Georgia (he spent time at defensive back earlier in his Bulldogs career) and is still somewhat raw at the position. Hardman can work as a return man due to his quickness and speed. Right now, Hardman is projected to be a fourth-round pick in the draft.

  Redskins | Washington still has hope for Alex Smith    Sun Feb 17, 06:34 PM

Washington Redskins senior vice president of football operations Doug Williams said QB Alex Smith (leg) hopefully will be able to play at some point in 2019.

Footballguys view: Note how Williams says 'at some point' here. That doesn't mean at the beginning of the season and it may mean well into the regular season. We're hopeful for Smith as well but there's still a chance he never plays football again. Expect Washington to make a move at the quarterback position this offseason, either through the draft or free agency.

  49ers | Alfred Morris probably will leave    Sun Feb 17, 06:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent Alfred Morris is not expected to re-sign with the 49ers this offseason.

Footballguys view: Morris is not the same player he used to be and might struggle to find a ton of interest. In 2018, Morris rushed for 428 yards (3.9 YPC) and two touchdowns in 12 games with the 49ers.

  49ers | Raheem Mostert likely will return    Sun Feb 17, 06:02 PM

San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent RB Raheem Mostert likely will receive a tender offer this offseason and could even receive a multi-year extension from the team.

Footballguys view: Mostert averaged a whopping 7.7 yards per carry in 2018. He fractured his right forearm during the team's Week 9 win over the Oakland Raiders and was shut down for about half of the season. Undrafted out of Purdue in 2015, an original round tender would not give the 49ers much protection if some team wants Mostert. Perhaps an extension is best.

  Bills | Zay Jones can play in slot    Sun Feb 17, 04:52 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones has the ability to be a slot receiver and played the position during his college career, in the opinion of BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown.

Footballguys view: Jones finished the year with 56 catches and 25 of those came from the slot. He ranked 42nd in the league in 2018 with 316 receiving yards from the slot position. Jones can do that and in fact could be a consistent chain-mover for the Bills offense in that role. We'll see what the Bills have in store for Jones in 2019.

  Patriots | Dwayne Allen may return in 2019    Sun Feb 17, 04:09 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen could re-sign with the Patriots this offseason, but he would likely have to accept a pay cut, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: This could be a big return for the Patriots, especially with the future of Rob Gronkowski still up in the air. Several people in the Patriots organization like Allen's professional approach, and he has been around Gillette Stadium over the last few weeks.

  Saints | Mark Ingram unlikely to receive tag    Sun Feb 17, 03:23 PM

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram likely will not receive the franchise tag this offseason, in the opinion of ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio.

Footballguys view: Ingram should be looking for lead-back work on the open market after splitting time with Alvin Kamara over the last two seasons. We'd like to see a run-heavy team like Baltimore land the veteran power back. Ingram should have no shortage of suitors in free agency.

  Broncos | Washington also sought Joe Flacco    Sun Feb 17, 02:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco also was coveted by the Washington Redskins, helping spark the Broncos to make the trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Footballguys view: Washington needs all the help they can get with Alex Smith's football future in question. The move kind of came abruptly for the Broncos, although there was buzz they would be interested in acquiring Flacco. Perhaps they wanted to get something done before Washington was able to put a package in place to add the veteran quarterback.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski a stadium regular    Sun Feb 17, 12:28 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has visited the team's facilities at Gillette Stadium multiple times since Super Bowl LIII, and one Patriots beat reporter sees that as a 'reflection of his being in a good place with how the season ended, both team-wise and personally.'

Footballguys view: Gronkowski may not be considering retirement just yet. The Patriots have him under contract for one more season. Gronkowski has a cap number of $11.8 million in 2019 with $2 million remaining in dead money. We'll be watching his status this offseason.

  Eagles | Alex Collins a fit in Philly?    Sat Feb 16, 11:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent Alex Collins could be a trade target for the Philadelphia Eagles, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Why trade for him when the Ravens could just let him go? Collins had a breakout season in 2017 but struggled to stay healthy and impress in 2018. There is buzz that the Ravens won't tender him, thus letting Collins hit the open market. If the Eagles were to give up something in a trade it wouldn't be more than a late-round pick.

  Eagles | Dallas Goedert to be used more?    Sat Feb 16, 10:45 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught 12 of his 33 passes as a rookie over the final four games, and Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com believes Goedert's usage should increase in 2019 after the coaching staff has an entire offseason to figure out more ways to give him the ball.

Footballguys view: We were hoping they'd use Goedert more last year during his rookie season. The 2018 second-round pick ended up with 33 catches for 334 yards and four receiving touchdowns. We'll see if they can concoct a way to get him more involved in the offense alongside their top tight end Zach Ertz.

  Colts | Deon Cain set for impact role?    Sat Feb 16, 09:49 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) will have a 'chance to become a big-play threat' in his second season, according to Mike Sando of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick out of Clemson in the 2018 NFL draft, Cain tore his ACL in the Colts first preseason game last August and missed his entire rookie season. Cain indicated he's unlikely to do anything until August in hopes of making sure he's at 100 percent. We'll monitor his progress in dynasty formats and Cain could have some re-draft value if he wins the Colts no.2 WR job.

  Chiefs | Dee Ford expected to be tagged    Sat Feb 16, 07:32 PM

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent LB Dee Ford likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ford is not against playing on the franchise tag in 2019, telling NFL.com earlier this year "That's out of my control. If it happens, it happens, and I don't mind it." He could have an even larger payday in 2020 if he continues to perform at a high level this season. Either way, we don't expect Ford to go anywhere this offseason.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence likely to be tagged again    Sat Feb 16, 07:31 PM

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent DE DeMarcus Lawrence likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason.

Footballguys view: Franchise tagging Lawrence for a second year in a row would be expensive, but the Cowboys have around $55 million in cap space for 2019 at this time. With Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper almost ready to be extended, the Cowboys could run out of cap space real quick.

  Texans | Tag expected for Jadeveon Clowney    Sat Feb 16, 07:30 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley could be tag option    Sat Feb 16, 03:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent LB C.J. Mosley could receive the franchise tag this offseason if he does not receive a long-term deal, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: Mosley is going to be one of the most coveted free agents out there. The Ravens should work on getting him a long-term deal and have the tag to keep him if they need to use that option. A team like Denver would pay a ton of money to add a talent like Mosley on the open market.

Updating a previous report, Louisiana Tech Jaylon Ferguson, Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons and Colorado State WR Preston Williams will be allowed to have interviews with teams in addition to undergoing medical evaluations at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Ferguson and Simmons were considered top picks in the 2019 NFL draft while Williams is seen as more of a late-round selection. The physicals is the most important part of the combine, especially for a guy like Simmons who injured his knee while working out this month and could miss his rookie season.

  Broncos | Denver won't restructure Joe Flacco's contract    Sat Feb 16, 11:32 AM

The Denver Broncos will not restructure the contract of QB Joe Flacco after agreeing to acquire him from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this week.

Footballguys view: Flacco's contract is quite agreeable, and that's one of the reasons why the team made a move to acquire the veteran quarterback (that and Washington was pushing to get into the picture). He is slated to make $18.5 million in 2019, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021, although none of it is guaranteed.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will take 'control of the backfield' during spring and summer workouts, in the opinion of Dan Graziano of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: We'll see if that happens because Penny, a first-round pick in 2018, should have done that last season. Instead, Chris Carson emerged as the primary back for the Seahawks. Penny has the talent, and Seattle wants to run the ball a lot, so we'll see this battle shake out during training camp. Stay tuned.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington will be 'sitting pretty' to become the No. 2 receiver if WR Antonio Brown doesn't return to the team in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is going to remain a big part of the offense, according to offensive line coach Sean Kugler, and Kugler said people will be 'surprised' by how much the Cardinals run the ball in 2019.

Footballguys view: With Kliff Kingsbury as the head coach of the Cardinals, everyone is expecting the "Air Raid" offense in Arizona. That's a good assumption because that's Kingsbury's system, but Johnson is still going to be a focal point of the offense. It's good news for his fantasy value.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is scheduled to meet with owner Art Rooney II next week, according to a source.

Louisiana Tech DE Jaylon Ferguson, Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons and Colorado State WR Preston Williams will be permitted to attend the NFL Scouting Combine in order to undergo medical evaluations with teams but will be prohibited from participating in any other evaluations or events at the combine.

Footballguys view: Ferguson and Simmons were considered top picks in the 2019 NFL draft while Williams is seen as more of a late-round selection.

  Bills | Charles Clay let go    Fri Feb 15, 04:07 PM
