  Steelers | DeAngelo Williams could still re-join PIT    Thu Mar 23, 07:43 PM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Steelers) could still re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers despite the team recently adding RB Knile Davis, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Williams has managed to dodge Father Time the last few seasons and proven to be a very nice backup to LeVeon Bell. But Bell won't start the season suspended this year and so it's unlikely that Williams or Davis will have much value this year as more than a handcuff.

  Chargers | Branden Oliver re-signs with Chargers    Thu Mar 23, 02:12 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Branden Oliver re-signed to a one-year contract Thursday, March 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A solid backup who occasionally provided more, Oliver isn't likely to have a big impact next season, but serves as a good safety net for Melvin Gordon owners.

  Giants | Shane Vereen takes pay cut    Thu Mar 23, 01:29 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen reduced his 2017 base salary from $3.15 million to $2.15 million, according to NFL Players Association records.

Footballguys view: The Giants are in some financial straits, so this is likely the only way Vereen--who has had limited impact--was staying with the Giants. We think he has some upside, but really isn't more than a bench player for fantasy.

  Packers | Adrian Peterson may visit Green Bay?    Wed Mar 22, 10:22 PM

The Green Bay Packers have 'some' interest in a visit with free-agent WR Adrian Peterson (Vikings), but it is believed that might not happen until after the team can take stock of its roster following the draft, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling.

  Packers | Christine Michael to return to GB    Wed Mar 22, 06:55 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael re-signed with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 22. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Michael didn't do much with the Packers after he was claimed off waivers late last year. With Eddie Lacy (Seahawks) gone, Michael will get a chance at more playing time. We imagine the Packers will take a RB at some point in the draft too.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray undergoes surgery    Wed Mar 22, 06:54 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) underwent ankle surgery Wednesday, March 22, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Bad news for a player just added in free agency. He'll be ready for training camp, but Murray won't be able to practice in OTAs or minicamp. The Vikings knew Murray would need surgery before they signed him.

  Packers | Green Bay meets with two FAs    Wed Mar 22, 04:40 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Packers) and OT Byron Bell (Titans) met with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 22, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Packers need some help in the ground game since they lost Eddie Lacy (Seahawks) in free agency. They had Michael last year after picking him up off waivers in mid-November. He didn't do much with the opportunity, so the Packers shouldn't be too fired up about bringing him back.

  Saints | Tim Hightower could return to Saints    Wed Mar 22, 02:07 PM

Free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) is still an option for the New Orleans Saints this offseason, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bringing back Travaris Cadet indicates the Saints might not be as high on Hightower. He's getting some interest out there, but only as part of a RBBC with various teams. No matter where he ends up, Hightower may not have much fantasy value.

  NFL | Marshawn Lynch misses football    Wed Mar 22, 12:42 AM

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch misses football and there's 'no question' about it, according to his agent Doug Hendrickson.

Footballguys view: Like a lot of players, Lynch misses the game in retirement. That's why we think there's a good chance he's playing somewhere this year. The Seahawks would have to release him in order for the Raiders to add him to the squad.

  Patriots | Tyler Gaffney waived    Mon Mar 20, 05:37 PM

New England Patriots RB Tyler Gaffney was waived Monday, March 20, according to a source.

  Raiders | Marshawn Lynch interested in Raiders    Mon Mar 20, 09:47 AM

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch has real interest in playing for the Oakland Raiders, according to a source. Lynch is still under contract with the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: We're likely to see some movement in the near future. The buzz has been building for quite some time that Lynch is going to come out of retirement and join the Raiders. Stay tuned here.

Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch retweeted a message Saturday, March 18, showing that one of his musical playlists contains a song titled 'Oakland Raiders.'

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin to be featured?    Sun Mar 19, 08:52 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head Dirk Koetter said it is hard to feature two running backs in an offense, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he is looking forward to having RB Doug Martin back. 'It will be great getting a guy like Doug back to where he was that will add to that explosion, because we just didn't have that in the run game last year, with all the injuries,' Monken said. 'We had six different guys carry the ball last year.'

Footballguys view: Martin is suspended for the first three games of the 2017 season. The Bucs will use Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims in a RBBC while he's out. Martin is out of rehab and all signs point towards him focusing on football again. We'll see if the Bucs do indeed feature him upon his return.

  Lions | De'Veon Smith to work out for Detroit    Sun Mar 19, 08:29 PM

Michigan RB De'Veon Smith will work out for the Detroit Lions next month when the Lions host local prospects.

Footballguys view: Smith is a big back (223 pounds) but he runs small. His best assets shine when he's catching passes out of the backfield. The Lions need a real feature back, not a receiving threat.

  Patriots | De'Veon Smith meeting with New England    Sun Mar 19, 08:27 PM

Michigan RB De'Veon Smith said he is scheduled to meet with the general manager of the New England Patriots prior to his pro day.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are always on the hunt for receiving backs like Smith. He's likely to be a late-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Giants | LeGarrette Blount an option for Giants?    Sun Mar 19, 05:14 PM

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) could be an option for the New York Giants because they are looking for a power running back to complement RB Paul Perkins, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: Blount would make a lot of sense for the Giants. His power-rushing style could soften up defenses and let Perkins serve as a dangerous change-of-pace back. Perkins could carry a larger workload, but he may wear down as the season goes on due to a lack of size.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin out of rehab    Sun Mar 19, 01:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin completed his stay at an undisclosed rehab center in February, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. He will still miss the first three games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy in December.

Footballguys view: Martin has checked in with the coaching staff, and reports indicate it was a positive meeting. We could see the Bucs draft a back this year with the idea he could be part of the future. With Martin out the first three games of 2017, Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims should work as a RBBC.

  Cowboys | No punishment for Ezekiel Elliott?    Sat Mar 18, 10:58 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been advised by his representatives that he won't be punished under the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy as it relates to an incident last July, according to beat writer Clarence Hill.

Footballguys view: Elliott has been accused of a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend. The league has been investigating the matter, and Elliott has been cooperative with the NFL.

  Vikings | Short stay for Latavius Murray?    Sat Mar 18, 10:49 PM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray's deal is for one year with two option years, and the minimum he could make is $3.4 million. The full $5.15 million that he's owed next season becomes guaranteed on the third day of the 2018 league year.

Footballguys view: The Vikings have given Murray basically a "prove it" deal. If he succeeds for them in 2017, then they should be more than willing to pick up his option the next season.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch plotting comeback?    Sat Mar 18, 10:41 PM

Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has a 'very good chance' to end his one-year retirement, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Footballguys view: Lynch would come back, force the Seahawks to release him (based on his salary), then sign with the Raiders. He's a living legend in Oakland, so going to that team for a year or two would make a lot of sense.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville to go RB early in draft?    Sat Mar 18, 09:54 PM

Louisiana State RB Leonard Fournette could be the target of the Jacksonville Jaguars with the No. 4 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, according to beat writer Mike DiRocco.

Footballguys view: We could see Fournette land with the Jags. His strong rushing presence could help the offense by setting up play action options for QB Blake Bortles.

  NFL | Marlon Mack a future star?    Sat Mar 18, 12:59 AM

South Florida RB Marlon Mack has the talent to be a 'big-time guy,' according to a college running backs coach.

Footballguys view: In order to be an impact player in the pros, Mack needs to hang onto the rock. He had 12 fumbles for the Bulls, and that fumble rate will get him benched in the pros. Mack is athletic, but he loves to take it to the corner store too much. When interior rushing lanes are clogged up, you'll see his feet go light as he tries to bounce it outside. He's slippery and elusive as a runner, but he needs better interior discipline to play up to his potential in the NFL.

  Panthers | Carolina interested in Wayne Gallman     Fri Mar 17, 10:07 PM

Clemson RB Wayne Gallman was observed by Carolina Panthers running backs coach Jim Skipper during his pro day Thursday, March 16, and Gallman was interviewed privately by Carolina's staff after his workout.

Footballguys view: Gallman is like a bull in a china cupboard when running between the tackles...and that's both a good and a bad thing. He's aggressive with the ball in his hands, but sometimes he'll try to do too much on a carry instead of just taking what's there. Gallman has a fierce motor, and that will endear him to coaches in the NFL. He's not ready for pass protection yet, so that could delay when (and how much) he sees the field as a rookie.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch has not asked for release    Fri Mar 17, 08:08 PM

Contrary to a previous report, retired RB Marshawn Lynch did visit the Seattle Seahawks' headquarters Thursday, March 16, but did not request his release.

Footballguys view: Lynch has stayed in shape and is considered playing again. The Seahawks are open to trading Lynch's rights to a team, but the Seahawks were not willing to release him last season when there were rumors of Lynch considering a comeback.

Updating a previous story, retired RB Marshawn Lynch met with Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, March 16, to ask for his release, according to the Huffington Post's Jordan Schultz.

Footballguys view: Lynch has been at the Seahawks facility, but reports indicate it was more of a personal visit. He's reportedly in great shape and wearing Raiders gear wherever he goes. Playing in Oakland may be the only option Lynch would consider to come out of retirement.

  Eagles | Leonard Fournette visiting Philadelphia    Fri Mar 17, 12:17 PM

LSU RB Leonard Fournette is visiting with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, March 17.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are looking for a lead back, and Fournette would give them just that. He's not quite Bo Jackson or Adrian Peterson, but our own Matt Waldman thinks Fournette could play like Stephen Davis (Panthers, Washington). Fournette is an upright runner with power and a scissor stride that eats up ground quickly. We should see him go off the board in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.

  Raiders | Marshawn Lynch to Raiders?    Fri Mar 17, 08:35 AM

Former Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could be potentially acquired by the Oakland Raiders either via trade or release, according to sources. Lynch retired last season.

Footballguys view: That would be interesting to say the least. The Raiders let Latavius Murray (Vikings) go in free agency, and they could use a feature back like Lynch. He's a living legend in Oakland, and that may be the one team he would come out of retirement for. Stay tuned.
