  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston showed off his arm in 2017    Mon Jul 16, 10:52 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw 53.4 percent of his passes beyond the first down marker in the air per Pro Football Focus, easily the highest such mark in the league.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers wants to play to 40    Mon Jul 16, 11:15 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, 34, said he wants to play until he's 40. 'I'd love to play to 40,' Rodgers said. 'I just think that number means a lot. Obviously, Tom (Brady) is kind of rewriting the book. Brett (Favre) had a good season when he turned 40. My goal is be able to move like I do or close to how I do and still be able to do that at 40 ... just because nobody's been able to do that and still move around the same. Steve Young's career was cut short in his late 30s. John (Elway,) the same - he didn't really move the same as when he was younger. So to be able to move the same way at 38, 39, 40 would be cool. That's my aim.'

Footballguys view: Great news for the Packers and for fantasy owners (especially dynasty owners) who love starting Rodgers most every week. Rodgers does scramble around a bit more than Brady so that type of style is a bit of a concern, but we should be able to see him play at the expected level for the foreseeable future.

  Bengals | Matt Barkley picking up the offense    Thu Jul 12, 10:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Matt Barkley brings starting experience and a quality arm, according to quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt, and Van Pelt said Barkley's timing with the routes in the playbook has been improving.

Footballguys view: The Bengals need a backup QB since AJ McCarron left and Barkley looks like the favorite. Barkley had a moment or two of promise with the Bears, but Cincinnati will be in big trouble if Dalton goes down.

  Bills | Josh Allen not feeling any pressure    Thu Jul 12, 08:11 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen told the team's website that he feels 'really no pressure at all' entering his rookie season. He added: 'There's nothing that's been said to me that has made me feel uncomfortable or feel worried about anything at all. I'm here to get better, I'm here to be the best teammate, the best quarterback that I can be. That's what I'm trying to do.'

Footballguys view: Allen's big-time arm made him attractive to the Bills early on in the 2018 NFL draft, but thus far Fantasy GMs in redraft leagues are anything but enamored with him. His current ADP of 30th quarterback taken overall is about as good a place as any for it at this point. We don't feel that even if he wins the job Allen will be a viable fantasy starter this season.

  Bears | 'Training wheels off' for Mitchell Trubisky    Thu Jul 12, 07:45 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has had 'the training wheels taken off,' according to OG Kyle Long, who added that Trubisky is 'going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills' as a result.

Footballguys view: Trubisky is poised to take a step forward this season, but the question is how big a step forward? He's got some new pieces to work with on offense, and that's definitely an improvement over the lack of targets last season. But sophomore slumps are a real thing, we're still not sure how good his weapons are, and he is definitely a quarterback with a lot to learn. He's tracking as the 24th quarterback coming off the board in early drafts, and right now that seems about right.

  Rams | LA Rams thrived in close quarters last year    Tue Jul 10, 10:49 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff led the charge for the team's offensive breakthrough in 2017, as the Rams used significantly more condensed formations (stacks and bunches). The Rams led the league in passing attempts (286), passing yards (2,328) and passing touchdowns (18) in those formations, per Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: If Goff doesn't get Sean McVay's car washed on a regular basis - or at least take him out for Fatburger or In N Out - he's crazy. McVay's offense fit Goff like a a new set of tires on the 101 freeway. Brandin Cooks is an upgrade over Sammy Watkins and Todd Gurley should build off a year where he really turned a corner. Goff is set up for a nice 2018 and while we aren't calling him out as a QB1 prospect -- and his ADP of 15th quarterback taken doesn't have Fantasy GMs seeing him like that either -- we feel he's going to be a solid backup fantasy quarterback with upside this year.

  Panthers | Torrey Smith to fill big need    Sun Jul 8, 09:14 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith could have the same impact on the offense that New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. had in his three years in Carolina, according to David Newton of ESPN.com, and Newton believes Smith could help bring out the best in QB Cam Newton.

  Jets | Josh McCown endorses Sam Darnold again    Sun Jul 8, 05:49 PM

New York Jets QB Josh McCown praised first-round pick Sam Darnold publicly for at least the second time this summer over the weekend, telling Sirius XM NFL Radio 'we have the right guy.'

Footballguys view: McCown is very willing and able to be a mentor and quasi-coach unlike some other veterans, which should help Darnold's future. The Jets should be one of the last teams to start their first-round quarterback from the 2018 draft if everything goes according to plan.

  Panthers | Cam Newton needs to find a rhythm    Sat Jul 7, 11:53 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is the 'hardest player to defend in the league' when he is clicking, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Footballguys view: Newton will get Greg Olsen back and the team added a receiver in the first round (DJ Moore) who should have an instant impact. They also traded for Torrey Smith to re-establish the deep passing game. Newton could return to the fantasy elite this year if new offensive coordinator Norv Turner can make good use of the wide range of weapons in Carolina.

  Steelers | Landry Jones preferred as short-term option    Sat Jul 7, 11:17 AM

Although the Pittsburgh Steelers view QB Mason Rudolph as their quarterback of the future, the team prefers QB Landry Jones as the short-term backup to QB Ben Roethlisberger, according to Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Footballguys view: It makes lot of sense since it's unlikely that Rudolph is anywhere near ready to take over in the event of an emergency. Jones has the experience and even if he's not the future, he's the reliable one right now. Neither has any value, since nobody expects Roethlisberger to be hurt this season though he was banged up in 2015 and 2016.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky has more command of team    Thu Jul 5, 08:21 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has more command of the team going into his second year, according to RB Jordan Howard. 'He asserted himself a lot last year, but I definitely feel like a lot more people are listening to him,' Howard said. 'He has a lot greater command of the locker room and stuff because he's the quarterback for sure now.'

Footballguys view: If the Bears are going to take a step forward, they'll need Trubisky to take command. That said, the lack of weapons to throw to, the shaky defense and Trubisky's own likely learning curve make him no more than what his ADP is sitting at right now, which is the 25th quarterback off the board in fantasy drafts.

  Browns | WR impressed with Tyrod Taylor    Thu Jul 5, 04:25 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry said QB Tyrod Taylor was very impressive during offseason workouts and showed good accuracy and leadership during practice. Landry said he believes Taylor will be the starting quarterback this season.

Footballguys view: So far, Taylor's ADP for the position is a rock-bottom No. 27, and it's likely due to a mixture of doubts about him, doubts about his team and excitement for Baker Mayfield. But Mayfield is reportedly not ready as of early July, and adding Landry to the dynamic Josh Gordon and a hopefully ascendant Corey Coleman could produce some solid results. We still say proceed with caution, and right now that QB3 ADP feels right, but he has upside, and might be worth a flier late.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger feeling his age    Wed Jul 4, 08:13 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he is walking a 'fine line' between resting his body and working out to prepare for the upcoming season. 'My trainer will get me as prepared as I can be,' Roethlisberger said. 'But it is a fine line of what you can do at this age.'

Footballguys view: And this is why the Steelers drafted Mason Rudolph. Roethlisberger can blanch at the idea of someone replacing him all he wants, but he's made enough noise over the last few seasons to know the end is near. This year Roethlisberger remains a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2, in part because of the skill-position players he works with. But for dynasty owners consider yourself put on notice. Roethlisberger's career is drawing to a close.

  Jaguars | More big plays from Blake Bortles?    Wed Jul 4, 07:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has earned the trust of offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and Hackett said Bortles' improved decision making will allow him to be 'a lot more aggressive' with his play calling.

Footballguys view: What Hackett is saying, but we're not sure who Bortles is throwing to. At this point we don't recommend him as more than a low-end QB2.

  Cardinals | Josh Rosen leaves impression on Pro Bowl CB    Mon Jul 2, 10:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is unlikely to start Week 1 so long as Sam Bradford is healthy and the team can protect him, but CB Patrick Peterson told SiriusXM NFL Radio the rookie signal-caller 'blew his mind' during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Rosen is highly intelligent, and he's paired with the offensive coordinator whose scheme was considered too complex by some (Mike McCoy). The Cardinals could create a quick decision and short/intermediate range passing game to suit his strengths, which would also maximize the value of second-round pick Christian Kirk.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota holds workouts    Mon Jul 2, 02:03 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota worked out with some of his pass catchers in Nashville this past weekend.

Footballguys view: Mariota threw more interceptions than touchdowns and regressed in yardage and yardage per attempt totals but a new coaching staff is installing a quicker offense. We think Mariota has a shot to do some good things, but right now he's no more than a mid-range QB two.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky talks new offense    Mon Jul 2, 01:33 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky said the team plans to spread the field and use all of their offensive weapons under head coach Matt Nagy.

Footballguys view: while we like to hear they are using all their weapons, there's not exactly an overabundance of them. That and his inexperience make Trubisky no more than a QB3 as we head into training camp.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes gaining support    Sun Jul 1, 12:17 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is a 'complete player,' according to free-agent LB Tamba Hali (Chiefs). 'He can throw the ball,' Hali said. 'Athletically, he's gifted. You don't have to coach it. In practice, I'd watch him just look guys off.'

Footballguys view: The Chiefs offense lost Alex Smith, but it's possible that Mahomes actually increases the deep ball production despite Smith breaking through as a downfield passer last year. Mahomes has more upside than his current ranking indicates, and he could increase the productivity of the entire Chiefs offense, although he comes with the risk of inexperience.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers working on new deal    Sat Jun 30, 01:28 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is having discussions about a long-term extension that is expected to give him the largest per-year contract in NFL history. Team president Mark Murphy said he hopes to have the deal done soon. Murphy also said Rodgers (collarbone) is healthy.

Footballguys view: Rodgers had no problem performing during OTAs, should be full go for training camp, and come Week 1 it should be business as usual for the future Hall of Fame quarterback. Matt Ryan's new deal puts him at $30 million annually (tops in the league) while Rodgers ranks 10th in the NFL with a current average annual salary of $22 million. Expect Rodgers new paycheck to be larger than Ryan's, and with both sides working to get something done we don't see anything derailing this process.

  Buccaneers | NFL warns Jameis Winston about future acts    Fri Jun 29, 11:27 AM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will face 'more substantial discipline, including a potential ban from the NFL' for future violations of the personal conduct policy, according to a statement released by the league.

Footballguys view: The no.1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft is no stranger when it comes to getting into trouble...mostly from his days in college at Florida State. The Buccaneers picked up his fifth-year option, and Winston is under their control through the 2019 season. They'll have to make a decision as to whether or not Winston can stay out of trouble, stay healthy and finally start playing up to his potential. Winston will miss the first three games of the 2018 season and is eligible to return for a road matchup against the Bears in Week 4.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston suspended three games    Thu Jun 28, 01:52 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was suspended by the NFL for three games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy Thursday, June 28. He will not file an appeal.

Footballguys view: According to the NFL, his next misstep could result in a lifetime ban. Not that this is the most important thing, you do come here for fantasy advice. So as we thought when this first surfaced, this really dings Winston's fantasy value. His ADP had already begun to shift, dropping to 17th quarterback off the board recently. It might drop a bit more, but not too much.

  Cardinals | Rookie WR expects Sam Bradford to start    Wed Jun 27, 09:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk said he expects QB Sam Bradford to be the starting quarterback Week 1.

Footballguys view: That's likely the case for Bradford, and it ties into a potential plan for 2018 first-round pick QB Josh Rosen. If Bradford can stay healthy (he hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2012) and the Cardinals are winning, then Rosen could sit behind the veteran. If (when?) the team struggles, they'll eventually turn to Rosen since he is likely their franchise quarterback of the future.

  Colts | No pain for Andrew Luck     Wed Jun 27, 01:50 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he is feeling no pain in his surgically repaired shoulder.

Footballguys view: This is great news for Luck, Colts fans and fantasy owners alike. He said he will continue with his plan of throwing for a few days then taking a day off until training camp. We'll see the Colts ease Luck into action during training camp and the preseason.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson not changing play    Wed Jun 27, 01:49 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) said he will not change his style of play even though he is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: In seven games last year, Watson set the league on fire...mostly with his arm (19 passing touchdowns) but also with his legs. During that time, Watson ran 36 times for 269 yards and two touchdowns. He injured his knee in November, but Watson is on track to participate fully in training camp and the preseason.

  Bills | Josh Allen can still win starting job    Tue Jun 26, 08:17 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen spent the offseason primarily running with the third-team offense and will begin training camp in the same spot, but WKBW's Joe Buscaglia believes the team will start giving him first-team reps about a week or so into training camp to make it more of actual competition for the starting job.

Footballguys view: A.J. McCarron is unproven and Nathan Peterman was a mess last time he was a starter so we can't imagine a world where Josh Allen doesn't at least have a chance. With a massive arm, Allen could be attractive to give this team a boost it's lacked previously. His accuracy remains a concern though, and even if he wins the job we would avoid him in redraft.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles feeling more comfortable    Sun Jun 24, 02:44 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles recently told The Orlando Sentinel he feels like he is 'owning the offense' and has a better understanding of it this season after admitting he was working at more of an 'elementary level' at the start of last season.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are built to make a Super Bowl run...if Bortles can get them over the top. They fell just short last year, losing to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game where Bortles played a good game with 293 passing yards and a touchdown. The defense can take them far, but a more comfortable Bortles should help the offense play with more efficiency and effectiveness. The new weapons around Bortles should help him too. From a fantasy perspective, Bortles is a bye-week filler and QB3 who is going undrafted in most 12-team leagues.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder making favorable impression    Sun Jun 24, 02:32 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder is healthy after a season in which he dealt with hamstring issues and is focusing on doing more of the dynamic lifts in college in order to avoid them this season. He has also 'clearly clicked' with Alex Smith this offseason, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Footballguys view: It's great news for Crowder, and we'll be watching to see if the chemistry with Smith carries over into training camp and the preseason. Crowder struggled through the hamstring problems in 2017, and he finished the year as a low-end WR3 for fantasy owners. This year, Crowder is poised for a breakout year from the slot as Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson should be attacking from the outside of the formation.

  Jaguars | Cody Kessler expected to be No. 2 quarterback    Sun Jun 24, 10:28 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Cody Kessler is expected to enter the regular season as the backup to QB Blake Bortles. QB Tanner Lee, the club's seventh-round draft selection, is likely to begin the year on the practice squad, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's John Reid.

Footballguys view: Back in March, the Jaguars acquired Kessler from the Browns in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick. Kessler takes the place of long-time backup Chad Henne, and his starting experience gives him an edge over the rookie Lee. The Jaguars are a run-heavy team with QB Blake Bortles starting, and they'd be even more that way if Kessler was thrust into the lineup due to injury.

  CFL | Edmonton interested in Christian Hackenberg    Sat Jun 23, 09:48 AM

Free-agent QB Christian Hackenberg (Raiders) has been added to a negotiation list by the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League, according to a league source. CFL teams can have up to 45 players on their negotiation list, giving them exclusive negotiating rights, and the players can be added or removed from the list at any time.

Footballguys view: Hackenberg, a second-round pick in 2016, did not see the field for the Jets in two years. He didn't last very long (around a month) with the Raiders in 2018 and now may have to go to Canada to get on the football field. We doubt he does much in the CFL and his chances of returning to the NFL and doing anything of note is slim to none.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota moving well    Fri Jun 22, 10:11 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has 'looked fast on the occasions when he's taken off' during spring practices, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com.

Footballguys view: After a strong 2016 campaign (26 touchdowns, nine interceptions), Mariota took a step back in 2017. He played differently with a brace on his knee, and now Mariota is getting back to looking like his younger self without the brace. Fantasy owners are taking Mariota at QB18 (12.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles inspiring confidence    Fri Jun 22, 12:34 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles displayed improved accuracy and impressive chemistry with his new weapons, and he also seemed very comfortable with his improved throwing motion after spending even more time working on it in California, according to Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com.

Footballguys view: Bortles came on at the end of the year, and will gain a tight end and downfield receiver that he is showing good chemistry with so far. He's basically free in drafts and opens with the Giants, New England, and Tennessee.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Griffin could start    Fri Jun 22, 09:58 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan W. Griffin has a chance in training camp to pass QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on the depth chart. QB Jameis Winston is expected to miss the first three games, and Griffin could start.

Footballguys view: Griffin was developing as the team's #3 quarterback behind Winston and Mike Glennon in 2015 and 2016, but ended up on injured reserve to start the season last year and was activated to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick when Winston got hurt. While Fitzpatrick is one of most experienced backups in the league, the Bucs should give Griffin a chance to unseat him. If he does, it shouldn't be considered a big downgrade for Tampa skill players in the weeks Winston will miss.

  Panthers | Taylor Heinicke could be backup    Thu Jun 21, 11:51 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Taylor Heinicke is 'in the running' for the backup quarterback job, according to Bryan Strickland of Panthers.com.

Footballguys view: The Panthers chose to not bring back Derek Anderson, so they will have one of the most anonymous backup quarterbacks in the league. Garrett Gilbert is the current leader, but Heinicke was with current Panthers offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Norv and Scott Turner for two years in Minnesota, so he could overtake Gilbert with a good camp and preseason.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston expected to be suspended    Thu Jun 21, 06:42 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expected to be suspended for the first three games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, according to sources. The suspension could increase or decrease depending on the circumstances surrounding the off-field incident.

Footballguys view: Most fantasy GM's will hope that a decreases, but if you're drafting before that decision comes through you're going to have to assume the worst. And frankly as Mercurial as the NFL penalty process can be there's really no way to know how this shakes out. This should significantly impact Winston's current ADP and overall fantasy value. Going from a high-end QB2 with even more upside to a much shakier low-end QB2. And remember that hire and projection was assuming this offense rolls the way that we were hoping. Now even if that works you're losing three weeks of production.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston bracing for suspension    Thu Jun 21, 10:58 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is expecting a suspension by the NFL for an incident with an Uber driver in 2016, according to ESPN Radio 97.9 in Tallahassee's Jeff Cameron. Cameron's sources told him that the maximum is likely three games, but the most likely event is that he's suspended one game. Winston was accused of groping a female Uber driver in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the suspension would stem from his failure to report the incident to the league. The personal conduct policy states players are 'to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through victim or witness reports, law enforcement, or media reports) that may constitute a violation of this policy.' It's unknown if Winston would appeal.

Footballguys view: That is going to hurt anyone who drafted super early this offseason, as well as his dynasty owners. We were hoping for a big step up from him with an improving offense around him, but a suspension could take him from borderline QB1 to shaky QB2 very quickly.

  Steelers | Joshua Dobbs appears to be odd man out    Mon Jun 18, 01:53 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Joshua Dobbs probably will not make the 53-man roster unless there is an injury to one of the other quarterbacks or if a quarterback is traded.

Footballguys view: Dobbs is a literal rocket scientist (aerospace engineer major in college at Tennessee) but he lacks the ability needed to stick in the pros. When the Steelers selected QB Mason Rudolph in the 2018 NFL draft, the writing was on the wall for Dobbs. We'll see Rudolph, Dobbs and Landry Jones compete in training camp to establish the pecking order behind Ben Roethlisberger.

  Seahawks | Alex McGough to push for backup job    Mon Jun 18, 12:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Alex McGough showed enough during offseason workouts to receive a real opportunity to compete with QB Austin Davis for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Florida International is known for being an accurate passer who stays patient with his reads. He'll put the ball up for grabs too often when trying to go deep and will need to take better care of the football if he wants to win the backup job to Russell Wilson.

New York Giants QB Davis Webb appears to be the clear favorite for the No. 2 quarterback job entering training camp, in the opinion of NJ.com's Ryan Dunleavy.

Footballguys view: Webb has the prototypical size scouts look for in an NFL quarterback. Measuring in at 6'5" 229 pounds, Webb scans the field well to find the open receiver. Accuracy problems and decision making on outside or deep throws plagued his game in college at Cal. We'll see if Webb can win the primary backup job to Eli Manning as his only competition is rookie fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta.

Footballguys view: Luck has to get over the physical nature of his injury, and there's a mental hurdle that can be significant when coming back from this type of situation. He'll need to learn a 'new normal' when it comes to being 100 percent healthy. Luck has begun throwing NFL footballs and is progressing well through his recovery. We should see him limited in the preseason as the Colts want him near full strength for the start of the regular season.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he plans to have throwing sessions with his receivers over the summer. 'So we'll be getting together, and it'll be good for us,' Flacco said.

Footballguys view: Flacco is playing with a renewed vigor this offseason according to reports. That's what happens when a team selects a quarterback in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft, and Lamar Jackson has been 'wowing' teammates and media out at Ravens headquarters. Flacco needs all the time he can get with his new weapons as the Ravens have completely revamped their WR corps.

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch said he is 'very comfortable' running offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's playbook and remains confident that he can lead the offense if called upon.

Footballguys view: Lynch has looked better this offseason and may have finally figured out what it takes to be a pro. A first-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Lynch has failed to beat out Trevor Siemian for two years. Now, Siemian is gone to the Vikings and Lynch now has no shot of being the starter so long as free agent addition Case Keenum is healthy. The team hasn't given up on Lynch just yet...and they may be the only people that have faith in Lynch to 'get it' and play up to his potential.

  Cardinals | Sam Bradford rested and ready    Sun Jun 17, 09:30 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) saw more reps during team drills as minicamp progressed, and he said limiting his reps has helped him prepare physically and mentally. 'I can really build on what we had done here and coming to training camp ready to go,' Bradford said. 'I feel like we've done a great job of sticking to the plan,' Bradford said. 'I think the plan has worked and my body feels really good right now.'

Footballguys view: Bradford may be rested and ready, but the Cardinals are just waiting for rookie first-round pick QB Josh Rosen to be their starter. We could see Bradford beginning the 2018 season as the starter, then Rosen taking over if (when) the Cardinals are out of the playoff race...or when Bradford gets banged up.
