  Browns | Teammate says Manziel drunk at practice    Tue Feb 9, 12:34 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel allegedly showed up drunk to a practice late in the season on a Wednesday, and the team tried to cover it up by saying he was in the concussion protocol, according to one Browns player.

  Panthers | Cam Newton reacts to fumble    Tue Feb 9, 11:05 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he didn't dive after a second-half fumble in the Super Bowl because of the way his leg was positioned. 'I don't dive on one fumble because the way my leg was - it could have been (contorted) in a way,' Newton said. 'OK, you say my effort. I didn't dive down. I fumbled. That's fine. But we didn't lose that game because of that fumble. I can tell you that.'

Footballguys view: That fumble by Newton essentially sealed the victory for the Broncos, but the Panthers were struggling to move the ball anyway. Sure, Newton could have dived on the ball but there's no guarantee he would have come up with it...especially if there was a nasty scrum on the ground.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel facing criminal investigation    Mon Feb 8, 07:14 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend issued an affidavit that said Manziel hit her so hard during a late-night confrontation that she lost hearing in one ear. Colleen Crowley suffered a ruptured eardrum, which is expected to heal eventually. She is seeking to obtain a protective order against Manziel. Manziel is currently under criminal investigation on allegations of domestic violence. 'Fearful for my life, I hit (Manziel) several times, hoping I could back out of the car,' she said in the affidavit, adding Manziel 'threw me off of him and I hit my head on the car window and I fell into the passenger floorboard.'

  Saints | Drew Brees extension before free agency?    Mon Feb 8, 05:29 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees may receive a contract extension before the start of free agency March 15. Extending Brees before free agency begins would give the Saints the ability to use the extension to cut down Brees' salary-cap cost for 2016. New Orleans is currently $10 million over the projected salary cap.

Footballguys view: The Saints have to do something here, and giving Brees a contract extension would greatly help. As it stands, Brees has a $23.8 million cap number in 2016 with $33.8 million left in dead money. Reducing that number this year would get the team under the cap and help them shop for much-needed talent.

  Seahawks | Several players signed to Reserve/Futures deals    Mon Feb 8, 05:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Brandon Cottom, WRs Deshon Foxx, Antwan Goodley, Douglas McNeil, TE Ronnie Shields, QB Phillip Sims and WR Tyler Slavin were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Feb. 8.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of New Mexico Highlands (Arizona transfer), Slavin is a player to watch in super deep dynasty leagues. He's not a great route-runner, but he's not afraid to go over the middle and Slavin has good size for a possession receiver. We're also watching Goodley in super deep dynasty leagues because he can flat out fly. Goodley ran a limited route tree in college (Baylor), and he needs a more consistent effort if he wants to make it in the pros.

  Broncos | Similarities between Elway, Manning    Mon Feb 8, 04:31 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning and general manager John Elway were both drafted first overall by the Baltimore Colts/Indianapolis Colts and they both won 14 playoff games and two Super Bowls.

Footballguys view: Elway didn't want to play for the Irsay family, so he forced a trade to the Broncos. Manning did play for the Colts, then some feel he was stabbed in the back and cut by Colts owner Jim Irsay after missing the 2011 season with a serious neck injury. Perhaps he should have followed Elway from the start. We have a feeling Manning will go into the Hall of Fame as a Colt--regardless of how things ended in Indy.

  Eagles | Nick Foles of interest to Eagles?    Mon Feb 8, 04:16 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles is expected to be inquired about rejoining the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: We've seen this report before...by Schefter....before the Super Bowl. The Eagles new head coach Doug Pederson was with the team when they drafted Foles out of Arizona in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft. The Rams benched Foles last year, but it's unclear if they'd even be willing to deal the young quarterback.

  Eagles | No franchise tag for Sam Bradford    Mon Feb 8, 04:10 PM

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will not receive the franchise tag.

Footballguys view: It would be unthinkable to place the franchise tag on a player like Bradford. He's a decent starter, but he gets hurt too much and isn't the type of QB who makes the team around him better. They'd like to keep Bradford if the price is right, but we feel he'll be playing elsewhere in 2016.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning not rushing decision    Mon Feb 8, 12:48 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will not rush to make a decision about retirement after winning Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers, but he said 'I'll be at peace, whichever way it goes.' Manning's mother, Olivia, said she would like Peyton to retire and go out on top.

Footballguys view: Manning doesn't need to rush his decision. We'd guess that he goes ahead and calls it a career. The storybook ending with a Super Bowl championship might be too much for him to pass up. However, he played hurt this year and may want to give it another go (unlikely to be in Denver) in 2016. Earlier reports have indicated the Rams would be interested in Manning if he wants to continue playing. Stay tuned, we may not have a decision for a couple of weeks.

  Eagles | No decision on Sam Bradford    Mon Feb 8, 10:01 AM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford could have the franchise tag placed on him this offseason, but the team hasn't made a decision yet. If the Eagles use the franchise tag on Bradford, they will need to pay him about $20 million in 2016 once he signs the contract.

Footballguys view: It's a QB desperate league, but why in the world would the Eagles pay Bradford $20 million for one season? We have a feeling they'll go in a different direction for 2016.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning quiet in Super Bowl win    Sun Feb 7, 11:15 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards and an interception in a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: The Broncos aren't built around Manning anymore. The defense is the heart of the team, and that side of the ball came through in a big way against the Panthers. Manning didn't have to do much as the defense carried him to victory. We expect him to retire and go out on top.

  Panthers | Cam Newton held out of end zone    Sun Feb 7, 11:00 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 18 of 41 passes for 265 yards and an interception and carried six times for 45 yards in a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: The Broncos defense was all over Newton in Super Bowl 50. He lost two fumbles and looked uncomfortable for most of the night.

  Eagles | Philly not pursuing Nick Foles?    Sun Feb 7, 08:12 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles has no chance of being reacquired by the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Meh. Never say never, but this might still be a possibility. Foles was benched by the Rams late in the 2015 season, and he carries a cap number around $8 million for 2016. It's unclear what the Rams would want in return for Foles.

  Eagles | Philly interested in Nick Foles?    Sun Feb 7, 01:23 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles could be an option for the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason because head coach Doug Pederson drafted them when they were both with Philadelphia and is interested in Foles, according to sources.

Footballguys view: There are many Eagles fans who are not okay with this. Foles looked great in 2013 when he had 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions under former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. Since then, it's been downhill for the young quarterback. He was a bust with the Rams, and the team is looking for a new passer to lead the team. Perhaps going back to work with Pederson is the best thing for Foles, but call us skeptical if the move happens.

  Eagles | No tag expected for Sam Bradford     Sun Feb 7, 01:17 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford is not expected to receive the franchise tag this offseason, but the team is still interested in re-signing him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bradford will be an interesting player to sign. He's a decent starter, but Bradford's injury history reads like Infinite Jest. Any team that signs him will need to take that into account, and those injury problems should discount his price.

  Panthers | Cam Newton takes home some hardware    Sat Feb 6, 10:06 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was named the 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 6.

Footballguys view: Newton certainly deserved both awards as he was the best player in the NFL this year. The supporting cast in Carolina's offense isn't as good as it could be, and Newton was able to bring out the best in the guys around him.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper confident in Derek Carr    Sat Feb 6, 09:40 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has 'no doubt' that QB Derek Carr will be an elite player at the position.

Footballguys view: We're also confident in the young passer, and throwing to an elite-level talent like Cooper doesn't hurt his prospects. In 2015, Carr had almost 4,000 yards passing and threw 32 touchdowns. He finished the year as the 14th-best fantasy QB in standard leagues, and Carr has the upside to be a top-10 QB in 2016.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning coming back?    Sat Feb 6, 09:26 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's former coach and current Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator, Clyde Christensen, isn't 'buying' the idea that the Super Bowl will be Manning's last game. 'I know how much he loves doing what he does,' Christensen said. 'He sometimes forgets and still gives me projects and forgets that he has a coach there. I still get a glimpse of how much this guy enjoys football like he does, enjoys the quarterback position like he does and I wouldn't count on him bowing out too early.'

Footballguys view: We're going to politely disagree with Christensen here. Manning's body isn't the same as it used to be, and he's wearing down with age...just like all the greats do. If Manning doesn't feel like he can compete at a high level, then he'll likely hang up his cleats for good.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota praised by Kurt Warner    Fri Feb 5, 09:31 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was praised by retired QB Kurt Warner. 'And I thought he exceeded a lot of expectations,' Warner said. 'There were things he did really well and made some great decision. There's a lot of things he can build off of, a lot to like.'

Footballguys view: Mariota was a lot better as a rookie than most people expected--except for that Titans fan in the pineapple suit. Look for improved play as the young quarterback continues to get acclimated to the NFL.

  NFL | Paxton Lynch will throw at combine    Fri Feb 5, 07:48 PM

Memphis QB Paxton Lynch said Friday, Feb. 5, that he will take part in the passing drills at the NFL Scouting Combine. Lynch is among the top quarterback prospects available in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: It's always good news to hear that a top quarterback prospect is going through the paces at the combine. Lynch is battling Jared Goff and Carson Wentz to be QB1 off of the board.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton reached 50 combined passing and rushing touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game, making him only the fourth quarterback in league history to reach the Super Bowl with that many scores. Surprisingly, the three previous quarterbacks to have at least 50 combined passing and rushing touchdowns entering the Super Bowl all lost the game, by a combined 60 points.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw 168 passes inside the numbers this season and was intercepted 10 times, resulting in a league-high 5.95% interception rate on such throws. The interception percentage ranks as the sixth-worst mark over the last 10 seasons.

Footballguys view: Kurt Coleman had seven interceptions this year for the Panthers and he could be poised to pick another one or two from Manning on Sunday.

  Browns | Cleveland unable to reach Johnny Manziel    Fri Feb 5, 04:45 PM

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has been unable to reach QB Johnny Manziel in the wake of his off-field incident last weekend in which his ex-girlfriend claimed that he hit her several times and appeared to be on drugs. 'We're not worried about Johnny Manziel the football player, we're worried about Johnny Manziel the person, and I think that's all we need to say on the issue,' Haslam said. Haslam 'appeared frustrated' and 'emotional.' Manziel will not face charges for the incident.

  NFL | Carson Wentz a risky prospect?    Fri Feb 5, 04:06 PM

North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz impressed many at Senior Bowl practices last week, but some NFL personnel executives are hesitant to label him a top quarterback prospect entering the 2016 NFL Draft. 'One said 'Boy, that North Dakota State kid is way overrated.' And the other one texted me and said 'After watching him for a full week, there is no way I would draft Carson Wentz in the first round,'' NFL media analyst Lance Zierlein said on.

Footballguys view: Wentz's small school pedigree could keep him from being classified as a first-round worthy "franchise QB" pick, but Joe Flacco overcame the same label to go in the first round and go on to win a Super Bowl. Wentz shouldn't last past the early second round in any event. His meetings with teams and combine performance could give him an extra nudge up the board. Quarterbacks are hard to gauge in the first round because of the supply and demand issue, and both of Zierlein's sources could easily be teams that don't need a quarterback, or a team in the back half of the first that hopes he'll fall to them.

  Dolphins | Tannehill most-sacked QB since 2012    Fri Feb 5, 03:04 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was sacked 45 times in 2015 and has absorbed 184 over his four-year career, the most in the NFL over that time.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins offensive line has actually been trending in the right direction in limiting sacks even though it is still a problem. New head coach Adam Gase is tasked with finding a combination and scheme that works to unlock Tannehill's abilities. A full year from first-round pick DeVante Parker should help.

  Panthers | Cam Newton good in play action    Fri Feb 5, 02:12 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton had nine touchdowns on play-action passes this year, which was second to only New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (10). The Denver Broncos allowed just 87 play-action pass attempts this year (second-fewest), 54% completion percentage on those plays (ranked second) and just two touchdowns (tied for second-fewest).

Footballguys view: The Broncos are tough to establish the run against, so play action doesn't exactly work the same against them as it would against less stout run defense. The Panthers have the advantage of Cam Newton's running ability giving the front seven something to think about on every running play, so they could be more off balance on Sunday.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel's family worried    Fri Feb 5, 12:28 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's father, Paul Manziel, said Johnny has twice declined to be admitted to area rehabilitation facilities in the last week. Paul Manziel said he's worried about his son's well being. 'I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday,' Manziel said.

Footballguys view: Manziel has to figure out how important football is to him. It might be his saving grace during this difficult time if he can get the message. Quarterbacks are still hard to find and Manziel actually improved on the field this year, so if he can start to turn it around for real this time, the NFL will eventually have him back.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning changing teams?    Fri Feb 5, 12:14 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning knows he likely won't be back with the Broncos if he decides to play in 2016, according to Archie Manning.

Footballguys view: Manning could land in Los Angeles with the Rams or perhaps the Browns if he does decide to play, but the poetic justice of ending his career with a Super Bowl start and the steep decline in his play this year likely means Sunday will be his last in the NFL as a player. The Broncos could still re-sign Brock Osweiler despite turning away from him in the playoffs.

  Eagles | Doug Pederson hints at QB change    Thu Feb 4, 09:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson listed finding a 'young quarterback' as one of the steps necessary for team to have success, which could mean QB Sam Bradford is not in the team's plans moving forward.

Footballguys view: Pederson has previously complimented Bradford, but what else is he supposed to say? At this time, Bradford's future with the team is up in the air. Bradford is a decent starter, but injury problems have plagued most of his career and that makes signing him to a long-term contract riskier.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is looking as good as he has all season and threw several deep passes during practice Thursday, Feb. 4, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: After missing most of the second half of the season with this foot injury, Manning has looked a little better throwing the ball. He'll need to be near the top of his game playing against an opportunistic Panthers defense in Super Bowl 50.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo to have another scan    Thu Feb 4, 05:08 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will undergo another CT scan at the end of February or in early March, at which point the best way to proceed will be reassessed. There will be two options for Romo. A plate could be attached over the collarbone to limit the potential for further injury. If the CT scan shows good enough bone growth, though, then a portion of the clavicle could be shaved off or removed. The second method would place less long-term stress on the collarbone. Romo is still expected to undergo surgery at a later time.

Footballguys view: The expectation is that Romo will be ready to go and start next season but owner Jerry Jones was right to worry about improving the backup situations. Look for them to make a move, though the buzz is that they will not take a quarterback high in the draft. Sorry Carson Wentz fans!

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said any conversations with the Saints regarding a contract extension have not happened yet.

  Broncos | Arm not an issue for Peyton Manning     Thu Feb 4, 03:06 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has drawn much criticism for his declining arm strength, but at least one teammate doesn't see it that way. WR Emmanuel Sanders believes most of Manning's issues have been a result of the foot injury that sidelined him for most of the second half of the season.

Footballguys view: He can still get Sanders the ball so we understand his support. Still it's clear Manning doesn't quite have the arm strength - or accuracy - of his youth. His foot injury is a factor as well. He'll need time to throw of course, so the offensive line needs to play an incredible game.

We love that he's not afraid of competition, and Goff should be able to put on a show at the Scouting Combine. Goff has a fast processor and a smooth passing motion. He's got the makings of a franchise quarterback.

  Eagles | Philly could draft quarterback    Wed Feb 3, 03:46 PM

If Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford does not return in 2016, the Eagles could use a high draft pick on the position and look for a quarterback in free agency to help bridge the gap until that rookie is capable of starting, in the opinion of PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have the 13th-overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. There may be as many as four QBs taken in the first round of the draft, but by the time the pick comes up for the Eagles guys like Carson Wentz (North Dakota State) and Jared Goff (California) could be gone. That would leave players like Connor Cook (Michigan State) or Paxton Lynch (Memphis) as options for the Eagles. Under new head coach Doug Pederson, a guy like Lynch would make some sense.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford unlikely to return?    Wed Feb 3, 03:32 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has a good chance of not returning to Philadelphia next season, according to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com. Kempski said he would lean heavily towards Bradford not being re-signed.

Footballguys view: New head coach Doug Pederson has spoken highly of Bradford, but there's no guarantee they'll work to keep him. Bradford is an okay starter, and he'd be a decent fit in Pederson's offense. However, injuries and inconsistencies have hurt Bradford throughout his career and those problems could give the team pause when considering a long-term deal for him.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning has struggled deep    Wed Feb 3, 02:01 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning ranked 33rd out of 35 quarterbacks this year with 27.5% accuracy on his passes that traveled 20 yards or more downfield, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: You don't need advanced stats to know that...just watch Manning this season. His arm strength isn't great (but it's not as bad as some think), but it's his long accuracy that really suffers. Against the Panthers in Super Bowl 50, Manning should keep many passes close to the line of scrimmage.
