  Patriots | Tom Brady absent    Mon May 21, 08:46 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady won't report to organized team activities Monday, May 21, but he's expected to report to mandatory camp in June.

  Dolphins | Miami to get trio back on field for OTAs    Sat May 19, 10:05 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee), LB Raekwon McMillan (knee) and CB Tony Lippett (Achilles') are all expected to be on the field in some capacity next week, although it is still uncertain how much work all three will actually do, according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

Footballguys view: Tannehill is the one fantasy owners (and the Dolphins) will be monitoring closely during camp. He missed all of last year with this knee injury, prompting the Dolphins to go out and sign Jay Cutler. Now, Tannehill is back for one more (and final?) season as the starter. With Brock Osweiler, Bryce Petty and David Fales behind him the Dolphins don't have many choices other than to see if Tannehill can not only regain his form but show that he's got more potential than he's shown as a pro.

  NFL | Johnny Manziel headed to Canada    Sat May 19, 12:11 PM

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) has announced that he will be signing with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. He is scheduled to receive a two-year contract, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Manziel's comeback tour now head up North, and it will be interesting to see what kind of play he can provide up in Canada. A first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, Manziel failed to make it in the NFL due to off-field issues. He seems to have his life back on track but won't get a ticket back to the NFL just yet. If he performs well for the Tiger-Cats (and stays out of trouble) then perhaps there will be a team that takes a chance on Manziel in the NFL once again.

  Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson to emerge in 2018?    Thu May 17, 10:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson's rapport with QB Patrick Mahomes and the presence of WR Tyreek Hill and WR Sammy Watkins on the outside should allow him to exploit defenses underneath this season, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: It's hard to say exactly how much faith to put in second-year quarterback Mahomes. This sounds promising, but let's see this against actual defenders before we get too excited. That said it's worth noting even this early on, especially for those of you who own Mahomes in Dynasty leagues.

  Cowboys | Dallas works out several players    Thu May 17, 04:18 PM

Free-agent QB Trevor Knight (Falcons), WR Keyarris Garrett (Panthers) and WR Taj Williams (Seahawks) and undrafted free-agent RB Sherman Badie (Tulane) worked out for the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, May 17. The Cowboys are not expected to sign any of the players at this time.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Texas A&M (Oklahoma transfer) in 2017, Knight bounced around on two teams (Cardinals, Falcons) last year. Knight is athletic and strong enough to break some tackles as a runner, but his accuracy as a passer is a work in progress. We'll see if he can latch on with another team since the Cowboys seem to be passing on him at this time.

  NFL | Matt Moore may wait to sign    Thu May 17, 03:20 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) may wait until the 2018 regular season starts before signing with a team in order to see which teams will need quarterback help, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The long-time Dolphins backup is in no rush to sign. Something should come up as players get injured during camps across the league. He has received some interest from the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans this offseason.

  Broncos | Denver signs Nick Stevens    Thu May 17, 12:13 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Nick Stevens (Colorado State) signed an undisclosed deal with the Denver Broncos Thursday, May 17.

Footballguys view: After the draft, GM John Elway said the team would not add another quarterback and Chad Kelly would compete with Paxton Lynch for the backup job to starter Case Keenum. Something changed, and that may be just understanding the need for a camp arm. Stevens is a smart player, but he's limited physically and needs a lot of work on his pass placement. He'll be the fourth-string quarterback for the Broncos and is just trying to earn a spot on the practice squad.

  Seahawks | Seattle signs two draft picks    Tue May 15, 06:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Alex McGough and OT Jamarco Jones signed their four-year rookie deals Tuesday, May 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: McGough has the smarts and accuracy to make a good backup if he can develop his pro game. The Seahawks only have Austin Davis as a no.2 quarterback behind starter Russell Wilson. If McGough impresses then perhaps he could earn a spot on the practice squad.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill looking good for OTAs    Tue May 15, 06:08 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will not be limited much if he is limited at all during organized team activities next week, according to sources. The coaching staff may choose to limit him more no matter what team doctors say, though.

Footballguys view: Don't be surprised if the Dolphins just ease Tannehill back into action. He's definitely in a make-or-break year for the Dolphins in 2018 after missing all of last year with that knee injury. Signed through the 2020 season, the Dolphins are going with Tannehill as their top guy this year since they did not select a quarterback with a premium pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson on track for camp    Tue May 15, 03:59 AM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) is 'on schedule to participate in training camp,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Knee injuries just aren't as devastating as they used to be. Watson tore his ACL in early November, and there was some speculation that he might be able to do something in OTAs this spring. He should be on track for training camp, but his level of participation has yet to be determined. We imagine the Texans will ease him into action upon his return.

  Rams | Luis Perez joins Rams    Mon May 14, 05:47 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Luis Perez (Texas A&M-Commerce) signed with the Los Angeles Rams Monday, May 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Perez is an interesting D2 quarterback who likely ends up on the practice squad if he impresses. He's smart and accurate but Perez is not mobile and has questionable arm strength.

  Texans | Houston claims Stephen Morris    Mon May 14, 04:21 PM

The Houston Texans claimed QB Stephen Morris off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks Monday, May 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Morris is mechanically sound and athletic, but he's not an accurate passer and has bounced around the league. He's just a camp arm for the Texans.

  Patriots | NE unlikely to pursue Johnny Manziel    Mon May 14, 12:15 PM

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) likely will no longer be pursued by the New England Patriots after the Patriots selected QB Danny Etling in the 2018 NFL Draft, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: Etling is a camp arm for the Patriots, and he may struggle to be much more for the team or in the NFL. Manziel is trying to make a comeback to the league and the Patriots were reportedly interested. Etling's presence shouldn't prevent them from being interested in another quarterback, but Reiss is one of the most connected writers out there...so we take it as gospel.

  Panthers | Garrett Gilbert leader for No. 2 QB job    Sat May 12, 01:41 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Garrett Gilbert is considered the leading candidate for the No. 2 quarterback job at this point, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Gilbert should be in the lead for the backup spot. The Panthers only have Taylor Heinicke and rookie Kyle Allen competing with him.

  Bears | Aaron Murray trying out    Sat May 12, 01:19 PM

Free-agent QB Aaron Murray (Rams) is participating in the Chicago Bears' rookie minicamp this weekend on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Murray is a camp arm for the Bears. He has experience working with new Bears head coach Matt Nagy from the time he was a backup to Alex Smith with the Kansas City Chiefs.

  Cardinals | Sam Bradford still the starter     Fri May 11, 10:25 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback, head coach Steve Wilks said Friday, May 11, but Wilks added that he wouldn't hold back QB Josh Rosen.

Footballguys view: Wilks needs to add 'for now' to this statement. Bradford came to Arizona on a one-year deal to keep the seat warm for whatever quarterback the Cardinals selected in the 2018 NFL draft. That became Josh Rosen (UCLA) with the 10th overall pick, and Rosen is clearly the future. Don't expect Bradford to hang onto the starting job all season long...especially if/when he struggles.

  Cardinals | Josh Rosen a quick study    Fri May 11, 09:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen settled down after showing some early nerves during the first day of rookie minicamp Friday, May 11, according to head coach Steve Wilks, and Wilks said Rosen is already showing an understanding of the playbook. 'The guy is extremely smart,' Wilks said.

Footballguys view: Rosen is the smartest guy in the room, just ask him. In all seriousness, Rosen is incredibly bright and needed to be challenged according to his former college coach at UCLA Jim Mora Jr. Rosen has a chip on his shoulder because of the 'nine huge mistakes' made in front of him in the 2018 NFL draft. Sam Bradford may be the starter for now, but Rosen has the upside to be a franchise quarterback for the Cardinals. Don't be surprised if he takes over this season.

  Dolphins | David Fales could win backup gig    Fri May 11, 09:40 PM

Miami Dolphins QB David Fales was impressive in his Week 17 start last year and will have a chance to compete with QB Brock Osweiler to be the backup quarterback in 2018, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Footballguys view: Fales has a quick throwing motion and he's got great anticipation as a passer. His arm strength isn't the greatest and he's not the biggest guy either. We'll see if he can beat out Osweiler for that backup job to Ryan Tannehill in 2018.

  Seahawks | Stephen Morris waived    Fri May 11, 06:46 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Stephen Morris was waived Friday, May 11, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The team has three quarterbacks on the roster after this move. Starter Russell Wilson with Austin Davis and Alex McGough competing for the primary backup job. Morris is mechanically sound and athletic, but his game isn't pro level and he's bounced around during his short time in the pros. He might surface as a camp arm somewhere.

  Bengals | Four Bengals picks sign deals    Fri May 11, 05:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals fifth-round draft choices CB Davontae Harris and DT Andrew Brown and seventh-round draft choices QB Logan Woodside and OG Rod Taylor signed four-year contracts Friday, May 11. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Woodside could be an interesting developmental quarterback. He was incredibly accurate in college, and Woodside put up some big numbers leading the Toledo offense finishing his college career as the all-time leader for the Rockets in passing yards (10,514) and passing touchdowns (93). He doesn't have the strongest arm and is undersized by NFL standards.

  Cowboys | Dallas signs six draft picks    Fri May 11, 04:20 PM

Dallas Cowboys fourth-round draft choices DE Dorance Armstrong and TE Dalton Schultz, fifth-round draft choice QB Mike White, sixth-round draft choices LB Chris Covington and WR Cedrick Wilson and seventh-round draft choice RB Bo Scarbrough signed four-year contracts with the Cowboys Friday, May 11, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Schultz is nasty as a blocker and loves to mix it up. He's a decent receiver who can be asked to go down the seam against linebackers. Without Jason Witten (retired), the Cowboys will use a TEBC with Schultz and guys like Rico Gathers, Geoff Swaim, and Blake Jarwin.

  Eagles | Philly encouraged by Carson Wentz's progress    Fri May 11, 02:51 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has yet to be medically cleared, but the team is 'highly encouraged' by the progress he has made in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. Nevertheless, head coach Doug Pederson made it clear he has no intention to rush Wentz back, telling reporters his quarterback will be 'ready when he's ready, and when we feel he's ready.'

Footballguys view: Great news for the Eagles here, and it falls in line with the reports that have been coming out this entire time. Wentz is doing well in his recovery and might even be ahead by some standards. That's great, but it's still too early to tell if he's going to get much (if any) work in the preseason and training camp. Even Wentz's status for Week 1 of the regular season is in doubt. We'll all be staying tuned in here.

  Giants | NY Giants finalize three rookie deals    Fri May 11, 01:58 PM

New York Giants second-round OG Will Hernandez, third-round LB Lorenzo Carter and fourth-round QB Kyle Lauletta signed four-year contracts Friday, May 11. Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Lauletta has drawn some Tony Romo comparisons on 'draft Twitter' and he's a rookie quarterback with intriguing upside. He'll compete with second-year pro Davis Webb to be the backup quarterback behind Eli Manning in 2018. Lauletta is athletic, accurate and can keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. We're monitoring him in dynasty leagues.

  Cardinals | Josh Rosen signs rookie deal    Thu May 10, 09:23 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen signed a four-year deal worth $17.84 million with an $11 million signing bonus Thursday, May 10.

Footballguys view: Rosen has the best chance to start from the best position as the Cardinals signal caller. That's not to say the situation is ideal or he's a top ten fantasy quarterback, but that he has Larry Fitzgerald, David Johnson and a decent line, as well as a good coaching staff. It makes him the best of the bunch right now, though we wouldn't invest in him for a redraft league this year.

  Raiders | Josh Johnson let go    Thu May 10, 04:47 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Josh Johnson was released Thursday, May 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick in 2008 (by Jon Gruden's Buccaneers), Johnson has bounced around the league and played for around 1/3 of the NFL. He couldn't make it with Gruden again and this may be it for his pro career. The Raiders move on with Derek Carr as the starter. Connor Cook and E.J. Manuel will compete for the backup job.

  Giants | Davis Webb has early edge for No. 2 QB job    Thu May 10, 04:12 PM

New York Giants QB Davis Webb is considered the early leader for the No. 2 quarterback job but will have to compete with QB Kyle Lauletta during training camp.

Footballguys view: As expected. There was a lot of noise in New York (or northern New Jersey where the team resides, if we want to be exact) that the new staff and front office loved Webb. While that cooled post-draft and might have just been a way to be direct that, no, they weren't drafting a replacement for Eli Manning at No. 2, we still think they are happy with Webb's progress, and Lauletta is incredibly raw.

  Panthers | Derek Anderson still an option    Thu May 10, 03:38 PM

Free-agent QB Derek Anderson (Panthers) is still talking with the Carolina Panthers, but he may be too expensive for the team.

Footballguys view: Cam Newton has been pretty healthy, so the role of understudy for him isn't critical. Given that they are otherwise ready to role with a group consisting of Taylor Heinicke, Garrett Gilbert and rookie Kyle Allen, we don't think they are worried about the backup spot.

  Dolphins | Brock Osweiler not guaranteed job    Wed May 9, 09:09 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler is considered the leading candidate for the No. 2 quarterback job entering training camp, but QB David Fales could win the job if Osweiler struggles during the preseason.

Footballguys view: Osweiler was with the Broncos last year but didn't do anything to impress in a handful of games. He's trying to get his career back on track with a familiar coach in Adam Gase. Osweiler was with Gase during his first stint with the Broncos.

  Patriots | Danny Etling signs rookie deal    Wed May 9, 12:30 PM

New England Patriots QB Danny Etling signed his rookie four-year contract Wednesday, May 9. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Etling is a big project at the quarterback position. The seventh-round pick out of LSU can throw a good deep pass and generally takes care of the football. However, he struggles mightily under pressure and tends to 'see ghosts' when in the pocket. He'll compete to make the 53-man roster behind Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer.

  Cardinals | Arizona waives two quarterbacks    Mon May 7, 04:15 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Brandon Doughty and Alek Torgersen were waived Monday, May 7.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have a trio of quarterbacks to get by through camp. Sam Bradford was added on a one-year contract in free agency to be a safeguard as the team's starter. Mike Glennon was brought in for veteran depth as a backup. Josh Rosen was the team's first-round pick and should be seen as the QB of the future in Arizona.

  Steelers | Two QBs may compete for one spot    Mon May 7, 03:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones and Joshua Dobbs likely will compete for one roster spot during training camp and the preseason.

Footballguys view: Jones has struggled as a backup to Ben Roethlisberger, but Dobbs doesn't really have the skill set you can trust right now as a no.2 QB. Rookie Mason Rudolph should be groomed behind Roethlisberger as the team's QB of the future. They might trust him enough as a rookie to be the primary backup.

  Ravens | Robert Griffin could make team    Mon May 7, 03:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III has a chance to make the 53-man roster depending on how QB Lamar Jackson progresses during training camp and the preseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Jackson has great upside as a quarterback in the NFL. However, his skill set may require some sharpening at the pro level. Griffin has the veteran experience like the guarantee on the box on 'Tommy Boy' and he could easily be the primary backup to Joe Flacco while Jackson develops.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz's throwing motion intact    Mon May 7, 10:26 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) sent video to quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, and his mechanics are sound, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Eagles here. Wentz is working his way back from the knee injury that cut his season short last year. His availability for Week 1 of the regular season is up in the air but things seem to be trending in the right direction. He is throwing the same or better than before the knee injury.

  Packers | GB high on DeShone Kizer    Mon May 7, 09:04 AM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer has starter ability and franchise potential, according to Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. Kizer will compete with QB Brett Hundley for the backup job. 'In my opinion, if he was in that class this year,' McCarthy said, 'he would've been part of that group of first four guys, or first five. I always felt there were five, the five quarterbacks, first-round guys.'

Footballguys view: Kizer would have easily been sixth out of the 'big 5' at quarterback this year. We might even rate him behind Mason Rudolph (Steelers) if Kizer was in this draft class. While he thinks he's part Cam Newton and Tom Brady, Kizer played more like JaMarcus Russell last year. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield working under center    Sun May 6, 09:37 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has spent the first two days of rookie camp taking a majority of his snaps from under center. 'We are going to hammer that until I am good and it feels natural,' Mayfield said. 'That is the way it should be because I can play out of the 'gun. Everybody here knows that.'

Footballguys view: It's something Mayfield needs to work on as he only had three passing attempts from under center in 2017. Mayfield worked diligently on his footwork in the predraft process, and that should help when working from under center.

  Jets | Todd Bowles out of the loop?    Sun May 6, 09:20 PM

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he learned about the changes to QB Christian Hackenberg's throwing motion after the fact, but a source said the team was fully aware of the changes.

Footballguys view: Why would Bowles be dialed in on Hackenberg's motion? The optics may look bad, but the reality of the situation is that Hackenberg may be playing for another team in 2018. The Jets have Josh McCown as their starter, Sam Darnold as their quarterback of the future and Teddy Bridgewater as a third-string 'flier' quarterback. There's simply no room for Hackenberg on the roster with the current lineup.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson expecting franchise tag    Sun May 6, 07:12 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson expects his team to deploy the franchise tag in 2020 to keep him in a Seahawk uniform. Wilson's current deal expires in 2019.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks are rebuilding, but Wilson is their core player they are building around. We'd be shocked if they let him get away. If the team can bounce back over the next two years, there's another big contract with the Seahawks coming for Wilson.

  Saints | New Orleans may only keep two QBs    Sun May 6, 11:48 AM

The New Orleans Saints are considering keeping just two quarterbacks on their roster for the 2018 season if QB Taysom Hill is able to beat out QB Tom Savage for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind QB Drew Brees.

Footballguys view: The Saints didn't select a quarterback in the 2018 NFL draft, largely due to the support that Hill has within the building. Sean Payton may be his biggest supporter, and reports indicate he loves Hill's game. Undrafted out of BYU in 2017, Hill originally signed with the Packers but did not make the final roster as a rookie. The Saints scooped him up, and he's even been active for them on special teams. Hill is an athletic quarterback who often draws Tony Romo comparisons. We're going to continue monitoring him in dynasty leagues.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers confident in teammates    Sat May 5, 11:34 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers believes they have the 'pieces to do something special' in 2018.

Footballguys view: The Chargers are the team to beat in the AFC West. They have great players on both sides of the ball, and so long as they stay healthy we should see them make a run at the playoffs...perhaps (and likely) as division champs. Rivers can still perform like a top-10 fantasy quarterback in 2018.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson's role unclear    Sat May 5, 11:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's role in the offense is a work in progress, according to head coach John Harbaugh, but Harbaugh said the staff is working on finding the best ways to put Jackson in position to make plays.

Footballguys view: Jackson is a developmental quarterback, and make no mistake he could develop into a quality starting quarterback in the pros. However, he might just be the best athlete in the league the first time he's on the field and that's tempting to get that out there in some form or fashion. We'd imagine the Ravens have a subpackage where Jackson can get on the field.

  Titans | Blaine Gabbert likely the No. 2 QB    Sat May 5, 09:55 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Blaine Gabbert is the favorite to be the backup quarterback in 2018 ahead of QB Luke Falk, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com.

Footballguys view: That makes sense for a couple of reasons. Gabbert has plenty of starting experience and gives them a veteran presence behind starter Marcus Mariota. Plus, Falk needs time to adjust and develop. He's a smart and accurate quarterback, with a dash of Kirk Cousins to his game. However, Falk took exactly zero snaps from under center in 2017 and has to get acclimated to the pro game.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater expected on field soon    Sat May 5, 03:26 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is expected to be on the field for offseason workouts in a few weeks, according head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: Good news for Bridgewater as he's trying to impress his new team. Bridgewater is only on a one-year deal, and the Jets selected QB Sam Darnold with the no.3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. The writing is on the wall that he's no long-term answer for the Jets. However, Bridgewater could be dealt to another team in need of a starting-caliber QB...or he could just hit the open market ready to prove himself in 2019.

  Ravens | Coach happy with Lamar Jackson    Sat May 5, 02:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been impressive with his accuracy and smarts during the rookie minicamp, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Jackson is better from the pocket than many think. The Ravens are looking for a quarterback to groom behind Joe Flacco, and that's why they moved back into the first round to select Jackson no.32 overall. Jackson is a threat to run and is likely the most dynamic player in the league...and he hasn't even taken a regular season snap yet. It will be interesting to see his development, and from a fantasy lens he has QB1 potential in the future.
