  Vikings | Blair Walsh receives extension    Sun Jul 26, 02:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings PK Blair Walsh signed a four-year contract extension Sunday, July 26, worth $14 million. The deal includes $5.25 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Walsh has developed into one of the best young kickers in the game today. He could be quite fantasy relevant this year as the Vikings offense should be better with RB Adrian Peterson back on the field. Right now, Walsh is coming off the board at K12 (15.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski agreed to terms with the Patriots Wednesday, July 15, on a four-year deal worth around $17 million.

Footballguys view: Arguably the best kicker in the league, Gostkowski is now the highest-paid at his position. He had already signed his one-year franchise tender, but the two sides were able to work out a long-term agreement. His current ADP is K1 (13.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Three players waived    Thu Jun 18, 04:08 PM

Chicago Bears QB Pat Devlin, TE Jacob Maxwell and PK Jeremiah Detmer were waived Thursday, June 18.

Footballguys view: Devlin followed Joe Flacco in college at Delaware, but he's struggled to find a home as a pro since he came into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2011. His career is likely done after barely lasting a month in Chicago.

Undrafted free-agents WR Mario Hull (Rice) and PK Corey Acosta (Southern Mississippi) and free-agent C Ben Gottschalk (Buccaneers) signed undisclosed deals with the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday, June 16.

Footballguys view: Hull is the guy to watch here in super deep dynasty leagues. He was undrafted out of Rice, but his career seems to be trending in the right direction. In 2014, Hull set career highs in 32 catches for 621 yards and eight touchdowns.

  Patriots | Stephen Gostkowski receives tag    Mon Mar 2, 02:53 PM

New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski received the franchise tag Monday, March 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This move isn't uncommon for the Patriots. They placed the franchise tag on former kicker Adam Vinatieri twice (2002, 2005) during his time in New England. As a franchise kicker, Gostkowski will be paid $4.5 million this season, which is 120 percent of his 2014 salary-cap charge. The Patriots could alter that number if they're able to sign Gostkowski to a long-term deal.

  Bears | Jay Feely says Jay Cutler is not a leader    Thu Jan 29, 09:45 AM

Chicago Bears PK Jay Feely said QB Jay Cutler isn't a leader off of the field. 'That's not who he is. You're going to have a vacuum there,' Feely said on Mad Dog Sports Radio. 'So you have to know that as a general manager or a head coach, 'Hey, we're not going to have that leadership from this position, so we've really got to have other guys that are going to step up and are going to be our verbal leaders.''

Footballguys view: Feely is not saying anything people haven't thought for most of Cutler's pro career. The Bears seem to be "all in" with Cutler this year. Part of that (most?) is his $19.5 million in dead money for 2015. If Cutler doesn't get it done this year, the Bears could easily cut him before 2016 as there's only $3 million left in dead money on his deal at that time. It's a make-or-break year for Cutler.

The New York Giants signed PK Chris Boswell (Texans) and QB Ricky Stanzi (Texans) to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 7.
