  Saints | Ryan Griffin waived    Tue Sep 2, 06:51 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Ryan W. Griffin was placed on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: We could see the Saints look to bring Griffin back to the practice squad. The second-year quarterback looked good in the preseason. As of right now, Luke McCown is the primary backup behind Drew Brees.


  Chiefs | Alex Smith financials    Tue Sep 2, 05:16 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith's four-year deal includes an $18 million signing bonus, a $1 million salary for 2014, an $11.9 base salary for 2015, a $14.1 million base salary for 2016, a $10.2 million base salary for 2017 and a $14.5 million base salary for 2018.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick the starter    Tue Sep 2, 10:49 AM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is locked in as the team's starting quarterback. QB Ryan Mallett isn't expected to challenge for the starting spot any time soon, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith.

Footballguys view: Woo hoo! Err, what's the opposite of that? The Texans have a bad group of quarterbacks...arguably the worst in the league. Fitzpatrick is a seasoned veteran, but we're not excited about his fantasy upside whatsoever. With him under center, it will likely limit the fantasy value of guys like Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins too.

  Eagles | G.J. Kinne signed to practice squad    Tue Sep 2, 03:41 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles added QB G.J. Kinne to their practice squad on Monday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Kinne has the athleticism to run the Chip Kelly system. His pop-gun arm will limit the throws he can make in the NFL.

  Browns | Connor Shaw signed    Mon Sep 1, 11:46 PM

The Cleveland Browns re-signed free-agent QB Connor Shaw (Browns) to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.


  Raiders | Derek Carr to start    Mon Sep 1, 06:33 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will be the starting quarterback Week 1.

Footballguys view: And there you have it. The only rookie quarterback to start in Week 1 will be in Oakland. Carr has a strong arm and good accuracy throwing deep. His problems arise when under pressure. He doesn't handle pressure well, and he's not quite as athletic as his older brother David Carr. The rookie doesn't have great weapons around him, so we're expecting Carr to get off to a rough start.

  Rams | Claim Case Keenum    Mon Sep 1, 04:21 PM

The St. Louis Rams claimed QB Case Keenum off waivers from the Houston Texans Monday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: The Rams are looking for quarterback help after losing starter Sam Bradford (knee) for the season. Shaun Hill will be the team's starter, and Keenum will now compete with Austin Davis to be the primary backup.

  Rams | Sign five to practice squad    Mon Sep 1, 03:59 PM

  Panthers | Cam Newton expected to start    Mon Sep 1, 03:12 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is still expected to start Sunday, Sept. 7, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The team needs Newton in order to compete at the highest level. They've been wisely cautious with their superstar quarterback as he deals with this rib injury.

  Panthers | Cam Newton wearing flak jacket    Mon Sep 1, 02:59 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is wearing a flak jacket to get used to it for the season, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries essentially come down to pain tolerance. Rivera said Newton is still sore but not as much as he used to be.

  Panthers | Cam Newton on practice field    Mon Sep 1, 01:21 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) is participating in practice Monday, Sept. 1.

  Texans | Three waived    Sun Aug 31, 08:15 PM

The Houston Texans have placed QB Case Keenum and CB Josh Victorian on no-recall waivers. The team also waived WR Anthony McClung (undisclosed) from the Reserve/Injured list after both sides reached an injury settlement.

Footballguys view: The writing was on the wall for Keenum when the Texans traded for Ryan Mallett. He's better than most expected, but Keenum is a borderline-level talent for the NFL.

  Seahawks | Practice squad signings    Sun Aug 31, 07:40 PM

The Seattle Seahawks signed TE Rashaun Allen, RB Demitrius Bronson, QB B.J. Daniels, OG Nate Isles, WR Chris Matthews, CB Terrance Parks, DT Jimmy Staten and FS Steven Terrell to their practice squad Sunday, Aug. 31.

Footballguys view: We like Daniels as a developmental quarterback. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues. He's athletic and has a big arm to stretch the field vertically.

  Jets | Sign seven to practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 07:18 PM

The New York Jets signed free-agents DT Tevita Finau, DL Kerry Hyder, SS Rontez Miles, TE Chris Pantale, OT Brent Qvale, RB Daryl Richardson and QB Matt Simms to the team's practice squad Sunday, Aug. 31. All seven players spent training camp with the team.

Footballguys view: Pantele and Richardson are players worth monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues. Richardson has the speed to break off big plays regularly, and he's tough to line up in the open field. Pantale has good hands and can work underneath routes.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith to sign extension     Sun Aug 31, 06:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $68 million with $45 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs are locking in Smith for the foreseeable future. We'll see if Smith can continue to develop under Andy Reid in the Chiefs system. The team will continue to have a strong run presence with Jamaal Charles leading the way. This will help Smith play better and keep defenses honest.

  Buccaneers | Six players added to practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 04:46 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added TE Cameron Brate, RB Jeff Demps, QB Mike Kafka, LB Brandon Magee, DT Matthew Masifilo and WR Solomon Patton to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Patton is an interesting player to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. He's quick, fast and explosive in the open field. This helps him as a dangerous return man and as a slot receiver.

  Browns | Rex Grossman cut    Sun Aug 31, 04:10 PM

The Cleveland Browns have released QB Rex Grossman, according to a source.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Grossman knows the Kyle Shanahan system, and he should be available to be an emergency quarterback if needed.

  Ravens | Seven signed to practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 03:20 PM

The Baltimore Ravens will sign QB Keith Wenning, CB Tramain Jacobs, TE Phillip Supernaw, LB John Simon, RB Fitzgerald Toussaint, DT AJ Pataialii and OG Ryan Jensen to their practice squad, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: We like monitoring Wenning in super deep dynasty leagues where QB talent is thin. Wenning has a pop-gun arm, but he has good anticipation and throws accurately on short passes.

  Bills | Seven players added to practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 03:15 PM

  Colts | Jeff Mathews joining practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 03:08 PM

The Indianapolis Colts will sign QB Jeff Mathews to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Mathews is the Cornell quarterback who spent time with the Falcons this offseason. The rookie is smart, has a rocket arm and has a skill set reminiscent of Ben Roethlisberger. He's a nice developmental quarterback to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Broncos | Nine players added to practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 03:02 PM

The Denver Broncos have signed LB Shaquil Barrett, RB Kapri Bibbs, FS John Boyett, QB Zac Dysert, WR Bennie Fowler, OT Vinston Painter, WR Nathan Palmer, C Matt Paradis and WR Gerell Robinson to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: The Broncos get to keep Dysert around. The 2013 seventh-round pick has a rocket arm and the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. Bibbs also stays in Colorado after a standout 2013 season with Colorado State. He has good balance and looks better as a receiver than some expected.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett acquired from New England    Sun Aug 31, 02:03 PM

The Houston Texans have acquired QB Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots, in exchange for a sixth-round pick, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: The Texans need all the QB help they can get. Mallett has previous working experience with Texans head coach Bill O'Brien from his days in New England. The Texans have an uninspiring trio in Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and Tom Savage at quarterback. Mallett has never stood out in the preseason, but there's a chance he could start for the Texans at some point this year.

Footballguys view: Gray is the guy to perhaps keep around on the practice squad. He's big, athletic and fast. However, the converted college quarterback has had a rough transition to tight end/fullback in the pros.

Footballguys view: Swoope was the former basketball player who was trying to make it into the pros as a tight end. The team might keep him around on the practice squad.

Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel will be released Saturday, Aug. 30.

  Seahawks | Terrelle Pryor jettisoned    Sat Aug 30, 01:07 AM

The Seattle Seahawks released QB Terrelle Pryor Friday, Aug. 29, according to a source.

  Panthers | Joe Webb no longer expendable    Fri Aug 29, 11:30 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Joe Webb looked expendable until QB Cam Newton (ribs) suffered a fractured rib in the third preseason game. Now, head coach Ron Rivera appears fairly adamant the team will keep three quarterbacks until it is clear Newton is healthy, and maybe longer.

Footballguys view: Webb could make the 53-man roster, but later in the year the team might let him go if Newton is at full strength.

  Bills | Agree to deal with Kyle Orton    Fri Aug 29, 09:25 PM

The Buffalo Bills and free-agent QB Kyle Orton (Cowboys) agreed to terms on a one-year contract Friday, Aug. 29. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: There's a good chance Orton will start at some point this year for the Bills. Orton will serve as the primary backup to starting QB EJ Manuel, and we might see Manuel banged up again this year because of his reckless playing style.

  Vikings | Christian Ponder saves job?    Fri Aug 29, 09:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder had a solid training camp and likely saved his job with significant work and production in the preseason finale.

  Bears | David Fales likely to be No. 3    Fri Aug 29, 08:25 PM

Chicago Bears QB David Fales is expected to make the 53-man roster as the No. 3 quarterback behind starter QB Jay Cutler and primary backup QB Jimmy Clausen.

Footballguys view: Fales has a pop-gun arm, but his elite anticipation helps him look better. In super deep dynasty leagues we're keeping an eye on Fales because of his head coach. Marc Trestman is known as the "quarterback whisperer" for a reason. For the love of God, he rejuvenated Jimmy Clausen's career---anything is possible with Trestman at the helm.

  Raiders | Waiting to name starting QB    Fri Aug 29, 08:09 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) is still recovering from an elbow injury. Head coach Dennis Allen said Friday, Aug. 29, that he still wants to see where Schaub is physically before making the final call on his Week 1 starting quarterback.

Footballguys view: With Schaub banged up we could see rookie Derek Carr as the team's starter. Carr has a strong arm, but his game falls apart under pressure. We're not overly excited about any piece of the Raiders passing game.

  Bills | Looking for QBs    Fri Aug 29, 06:00 PM

The Buffalo Bills are watching the quarterback market, and could be interested in bringing in free-agent QB Kyle Orton (Cowboys).

Footballguys view: The Bills QB situation is a mess right now. Even their starter, E.J. Manuel, is not the greatest option. Manuel has the raw tools, but so far he hasn't put it all together. Behind him, Jeff Tuel isn't going to make any positive impact either.
