  Ravens | Baltimore keeps Robert Griffin    Thu Mar 21, 03:33 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Ravens) was re-signed to an undisclosed deal by the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Griffin stays as the backup to Lamar Jackson. He's the veteran experience the Ravens need behind their second-year starter.

  NFL | Drew Lock a busy man    Thu Mar 21, 03:19 PM

Former Missouri QB Drew Lock will add the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Chargers and Detroit Lions to his list of pre-draft visits.

Footballguys view: Lock could be a top-10 pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's got a strong arm and can make off-platform throws. Lock's footwork needs work and his arm mechanics are inconsistent, leading to accuracy problems. Some in the scouting community compare him to Derek Carr (Raiders).

  Broncos | Kevin Hogan staying in Denver    Thu Mar 21, 01:35 PM

Denver Broncos QB Kevin Hogan will re-sign with the team Thursday, March 21, according a league source.

Footballguys view: Hogan signed with the team last year and was a backup to Case Keenum. This year, Hogan is going to be the primary backup to Joe Flacco.

  NFL | Drew Lock visits with Dolphins    Thu Mar 21, 01:09 PM

Former Missouri QB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Drew Lock met with the Miami Dolphins for dinner and board work Wednesday, March 20, and will do the same with the New York Giants on Thursday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Lock could be an option for the Dolphins with the no.12 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's got a big arm and is more athletic than some would think. His mechanics need work although we do give him credit for making off-platform throws.

  Patriots | Will Grier expected to meet with N.E.    Thu Mar 21, 12:22 PM

Former West Virginia QB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Will Grier is expected to have a pre-draft visit with the New England Patriots, but one team beat reporter says he's be surprised if the Patriots used an early-round pick on him.

Footballguys view: Grier is seen as a second-round pick but he could sneak into the late first round of the 2019 NFL draft. The Patriots have the 32nd overall pick in the first round and could take Grier with the last pick on the first day of the draft to groom him as the heir apparent to Tom Brady.

  NFL | Will Grier impresses    Thu Mar 21, 11:44 AM

West Virginia QB Will Grier put on a show at his pro day and is rising up draft boards, according to a source. He's expected to meet with at least 10 teams before the draft, which include the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Grier is seen as a 'riser' in the 2019 NFL draft. He's currently seen as a second-round pick but he could sneak into the late first round of the 2019 NFL draft. Grier reminds some in the scouting community of Andy Dalton coming out of TCU. He's accurate on short-to-intermediate throws and is not afraid to stay in the pocket to take a shot downfield.

  Texans | Joe Webb re-signs with Houston    Thu Mar 21, 11:31 AM

Free-agent QB Joe Webb (Texans) re-signed with the Houston Texans Thursday, March 21, on a one-year, $1 million deal, according to a source.

  Jets | Trevor Siemian joining Jets    Wed Mar 20, 04:03 PM

Free-agent QB Trevor Siemian (Vikings) is signing a one-year deal with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Jets have second-year quarterback Sam Darnold as their starter but they needed to find a veteran backup. That's what Siemian is best at, even though he did get a chance to be a starter with the Broncos in the past. Siemian is not a threat to start but things wouldn't go off the rails if he has to step in and play.

  Broncos | Denver will host Drew Lock    Wed Mar 20, 03:35 PM

Former Missouri QB Drew Lock has a pre-draft visit scheduled with the Denver Broncos, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have been linked to Lock dating back to the college football season when GM John Elway traveled to see him play. Lock is tall, athletic and has a big arm....sounds just like an Elway quarterback. They missed on first-round bust Paxton Lynch in the 2016 NFL draft, but Elway won't hesitate to draft another quarterback in the top round if he falls in love with a prospect. Lock has also been linked to the Oakland Raiders.

  Bears | One-year deal for Tyler Bray    Wed Mar 20, 01:54 PM

Free-agent QB Tyler Bray (Bears) was re-signed to a one-year deal by the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bray has experience working under Bears head coach Matt Nagy from their time together with the Chiefs. He's got a big arm but is likely to just be a camp arm for the Bears in 2019. Chase Daniel is under contract for one more year with the Bears ($6 million cap hit) and is the primary backup to Mitchell Trubisky.

  NFL | T.J. Linta gaining steam    Wed Mar 20, 01:23 PM

Former Wagner QB T.J. Linta reportedly impressed scouts at his pro day recently. At 6-foot-4, Linta has shown off a strong arm, intelligence and decision making. Former NFL coordinator Chris Palmer said Linta clearly displayed a pro-level arm. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports posits that Linta may be a late-round draft pick or a sought after undrafted free agent.

Footballguys view: Linta was a graduate transfer (Brown) in 2018 and in nine games he threw for 1,481 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. He gets rid of the ball quickly and does a good job of leading his receivers downfield. Linta is likely to go undrafted but we'll monitor his progress in crazy deep dynasty leagues.

  Redskins | Washington targeting Dwayne Haskins?    Wed Mar 20, 01:16 PM

Former Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins could be the subject of a draft trade between the Washington Redskins and New York Jets. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes the Redskins would be willing to make such a trade to fill a need at quarterback, although Washington did just trade for QB Case Keenum.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.3 overall pick but it's rumored to be up for grabs. Washington has Keenum and Colt McCoy to compete for the starting job in 2019. Perhaps they'd be interested in moving up to get Haskins. Most mock drafts have Haskins going off the board to the Giants with the 6th overall pick.

  Rams | Blake Bortles terms    Wed Mar 20, 09:19 AM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams QB Blake Bortles received a one-year, $1 million deal from the Rams, which will be subtracted from the $6.5 million the Jacksonville Jaguars owe him.

Footballguys view: Bortles gets a fresh start with Sean McVay and the Rams. He's the backup to Jared Goff and won't see any playing time unless Goff is injured. We'll see if Bortles can play better with a better offensive coach to learn from.

  Texans | AJ McCarron financials    Tue Mar 19, 10:35 PM

  Texans | AJ McCarron headed to Houston    Tue Mar 19, 09:17 PM

Free-agent QB AJ McCarron (Raiders) reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with the Houston Texans on Tuesday, March 19.

Footballguys view: McCarron has been with a couple of teams as a backup and that's what he'll be with the Texans. He's replacing Brandon Weeden, who is a free agent, as the backup to Deshaun Watson.

  Jets | Trevor Siemian will visit Jets    Tue Mar 19, 07:53 PM

Free-agent QB Trevor Siemian (Vikings) will meet with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 20.

Footballguys view: Siemian is the type of backup quarterback teams are looking for. He's got starting experience, is smart and the wheels won't fall off if he has to play a game or two. The Jets are in need of a veteran backup to Sam Darnold.

  Vikings | Minnesota eyeing Sean Mannion    Tue Mar 19, 07:50 PM

Free-agent QB Sean Mannion (Rams) has drawn interest from the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Mannion is tall with a big arm who has been developing as a reserve player with the Rams. The Vikings have Kyle Sloter behind Kirk Cousins right now but they are looking for competition at the position with Trevor Siemian potentially moving on in free agency.

  Cardinals | Arizona visiting with Kyler Murray    Tue Mar 19, 02:41 PM

Former Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is meeting privately with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, March 19. The Cardinals, of course, own the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Murray has been linked to the Cardinals with the no.1 overall pick for some time. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury is bringing the 'Air Raid' offense to the desert and that is a perfect fit for Murray's skill set. We'll see if they go ahead and bring Murray in, thus ending the Josh Rosen era after one season.

  Rams | Blake Bortles joins Rams    Mon Mar 18, 07:56 PM

Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams Monday, March 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Rams needed a backup quarterback to Jared Goff since Sean Mannion was a free agent. This is an interesting destination for Bortles, a first-round disappointment of the Jaguars. If he can't make plays with head coach Sean McVay then he's unlikely to make plays anywhere.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin to return soon?    Mon Mar 18, 03:39 PM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Ravens) and the Baltimore Ravens mutually hope to have Griffin re-signed soon to back up QB Lamar Jackson.

Footballguys view: Griffin fits with Baltimore and their offense with Jackson leading the way. It makes too much sense to bring him back for veteran depth behind the second-year quarterback. Jackson is currently the only quarterback on Baltimore's roster.

  Texans | AJ McCarron visiting Texans    Mon Mar 18, 10:07 AM

Free-agent QB AJ McCarron (Raiders) is visiting the Houston Texans Monday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Texans only have one quarterback on their roster, starter and star Deshaun Watson. McCarron has failed to impress as a backup through a couple of stops in the NFL but might be able to convince the Texans brass that he is the answer for the clear need at backup quarterback.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick signs with Miami    Sun Mar 17, 02:55 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buccaneers) on Sunday, March 17, signed with the Miami Dolphins. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Footballguys view: The tanking is official! The Dolphins are looking for the 2020 NFL draft to find their franchise quarterback as that's a much better class than the one coming into the pros this year. Fitzpatrick is the perfect placeholder quarterback for the Dolphins as their franchise quarterback of the future is not yet on the roster.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson contract talks ongoing    Sun Mar 17, 12:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson told late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon on Friday, March 15, that there's 'great potential' for Wilson to eventually become the highest-paid player in NFL history. Meanwhile, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has said this offseason that negotiations are 'ongoing' with Wilson, whose contract expires after the 2019 season.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks will have to make Wilson one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league eventually. Players like him, at 30-years old, do not hit the open market. We'll see if these talks can go from 'ongoing' to 'done' at some point during the summer.

  NFL | Johnny Manziel to play in AAF    Sat Mar 16, 10:21 PM

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) signed with the Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football Saturday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Manziel was cut from the CFL and pretty much banned from the league. Now, he finds his way back to the United States to play in this new league in 2019. The Express have burned through two starting quarterbacks (Christian Hackenberg, Zach Mettenberger) already this season.

  Giants | Dwayne Haskins a bad in New York?    Sat Mar 16, 08:27 PM

Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins is not receiving much attention from the New York Giants ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, according to Dianna Marie Russini of ESPN.

Footballguys view: This is an...interesting...report. Most every mock draft to this point has had the Giants selecting Haskins with the no.6 overall pick. That may still be the case, but it sounds like the Giants aren't giving him much attention at this time. Stay tuned.

  Rams | Blake Bortles to visit Rams    Fri Mar 15, 10:10 PM

Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars) will visit the Los Angeles Rams Monday, March 18, according to a team source.

Footballguys view: The Rams are looking for backup help behind Jared Goff. Last year's top reserve, Sean Mannion, is a free agent and they only have Brandon Allen on the roster behind Goff at this time. Bortles had mostly bad times with the Jaguars but he has flashed a bit here and there. His best spot is as a backup.

  Dolphins | Colin Kaepernick interested in Miami?    Fri Mar 15, 06:38 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is interested in becoming the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. A source close to Kaepernick told La Canfora the quarterback is training hard and 'ready to play.'

Footballguys view: With the Dolphins trading away Ryan Tannehill to the Titans on Friday, the only two quarterbacks on their roster are Luke Falk and Jake Rudock. Expect them to make a move for a seasoned starter. Perhaps that is Kaepernick but we're not holding out breath.

  Titans | Blaine Gabbert gets the boot    Fri Mar 15, 04:40 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert was released Friday, March 15.

  Dolphins | Miami gets draft pick for Ryan Tannehill    Fri Mar 15, 03:06 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was traded to the Tennessee Titans for a 2020 fourth round selection on Friday, March 15. The teams will also swap picks in the 2019 NFL draft, as Tennessee will acquire a sixth round pick from Miami and send a seventh round selection to Miami.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins were lucky to get anything for Tannehill as most thought they would just let him go. They can move on, likely tanking this year and selecting a top quarterback in the 2020 NFL draft.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill trade details    Fri Mar 15, 03:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was traded to the Tennessee Titans for a 2020 fourth-round selection on Friday, March 15. The teams will also swap picks in the 2019 NFL draft, as Tennessee will acquire a sixth-round pick from Miami and send a seventh-round selection to the Dolphins. Tannehill subsequently signed a one-year contract worth $7 million guaranteed - including incentives that could drive the total value of the deal over $12 million - with the Titans.

Footballguys view: The Titans needed to upgrade the backup spot behind Marcus Mariota and they hope this move does that. They'll get rid of Blaine Gabbert after trading for Tannehill on Friday.

  Broncos | Joe Flacco has long-term plans    Fri Mar 15, 12:42 PM

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco said Friday, March 15, that he's as healthy as he's ever been and is planning to be the team's quarterback solution for the foreseeable future. 'I hope they are dragging me out of this building a long time from now,' Flacco said.

Footballguys view: Flacco was playing good football before he injured his hip and was replaced by Lamar Jackson last year. He now gets back to a system that he had success in previously in his career. Broncos new OC Rich Scangarello is implementing a Shanahan/Kubiak system, the same one Flacco flourished in back in 2014.

  Broncos | Joe Flacco lauded by John Elway    Thu Mar 14, 02:57 PM

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is entering his prime, in the opinion of general manager John Elway. Denver's offensive system is similar to the system Flacco succeeded in with former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator and former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak. Furthermore, head coach Vic Fangio knows Flacco and coached with the Ravens when Flacco was there.

Footballguys view: Flacco is an upgrade over Case Keenum, although not a huge one at that. He should run the offense as designed, which should feature plenty of play-action passing and deep shots to guys like Emmanuel Sanders or Courtland Sutton. Fantasy GMs will have better QB2 options in 2019.
