New England Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham said he isn't worrying about impending free-agent QB Tom Brady's future with the team.

That's the biggest thing I've focused on, making a big stride from Year 1 to Year 2.'

  NFL | Joe Burrow to skip Senior Bowl    Sat Jan 18, 07:13 PM

LSU QB Joe Burrow has declined an invitation to attend the 2020 Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: Not a big deal here. Burrow is at the top of the 2020 NFL draft and can't really gain anything by participating in the Senior Bowl. In years past we've seen guys like Matt Ryan skip the game, while others like Baker Mayfield go ahead and compete during the week in Mobile, AL.

  NFL | Justin Herbert attending Senior Bowl    Sat Jan 18, 07:11 PM

Oregon QB Justin Herbert is scheduled to participate in the 2020 Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: Herbert could be high on the list for NFL teams...maybe even the Bengals with the No.1 overall pick. Yes, LSU's Joe Burrow is considered a lock by most to be the top pick but Herbert could push for that spot with a great week in Mobile, AL. The Bengals are going to be coaching at the Senior Bowl and are going to get a close look at Herbert and his intriguing physical gifts.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo inspiring confidence    Sat Jan 18, 01:50 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has the confidence of former 49ers QB and Hall of Famer Steve Young. 'When they've asked him to raise up and go win it, he did it,' Young said. 'Those are hard things to do. That just doesn't happen. When you see it in the NFL and someone is able to do it, you go, once you've done it, you can do it again. You can keep doing it.'

Footballguys view: That's what great quarterbacks do...especially in big games. The 49ers are one game away from the Super Bowl and what a turnaround they've had this past season. They had a plan with head coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch and it took three years for it to come to fruition but here we are. A large part of what they've been able to do in the 2019 season comes down to Garoppolo staying healthy. We'll see if they can win and head to Miami for the Super Bowl.

  49ers | Raheem Mostert excelling for Niners    Sat Jan 18, 01:08 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is the only player since special-teams tackles were first tracked in 2001 to lead his team in rushing yards and special-teams tackles in the same season.

Footballguys view: Mostert is a good back with an all-purpose skill set. The 49ers use a RBBC featuring guys like Mostert and Tevin Coleman. It's one of the big reasons why they've made it to the NFC Championship Game.

  Titans | Derrick Henry not intimidating?    Sat Jan 18, 12:52 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has rushed for 377 yards on 64 carries in two wins this postseason, but Kansas City Chiefs DE Frank Clark says he isn't intimidated heading into the AFC Championship matchup with the Titans on Sunday, Jan. 19. 'He's not hard to hit,' Clark was quoted as saying on NFL Network. 'He's just a big guy -- 240, 245, 250 (pounds). Honestly he should be running harder at his weight and size. I don't see no difficulty in tackling him. ... He's just easy to me up front because I don't look at any running back like they can't be tackled. He's not one of the best guys at breaking tackles to me, honestly.'

Footballguys view: That's not what you want to say if you're facing Henry in the AFC Championship Game. Clark has given the Titans some bulletin board material to be sure. We'll see if the Titans run all over the Chiefs defense on Sunday.

  Browns | Odell Beckham Jr. won't face charges    Sat Jan 18, 12:30 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. likely won't face simple-assault charges for slapping a security officer's buttocks Monday, Jan. 13, as the officer has declined to press charges, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Beckham was celebrating LSU's win in the National Championship and slapped a male officer on the butt. With the officer not pressing charges this latest incident is likely to go away.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray hasn't closed door to baseball    Sat Jan 18, 07:04 AM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray hasn't necessarily given up on playing the sport of baseball. In an interview with The Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman, Murray said that he thinks that he would be capable of playing in the NFL and MLB in the same calendar year. 'I think I could. ... Athletically, I think yeah, I could do it. I've been playing both my whole life. I would love to add that to the resume.'

Footballguys view: That's an...interesting...response from Murray who was a top-10 pick for the Oakland A's. Murray is not prohibited from playing baseball by the Cardinals but doing so would void future guarantees in his contract.

  NFL | Peter Guerriero turning pro    Fri Jan 17, 11:49 PM

Monmouth RB Peter Guerriero announced his intention to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on Friday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Guerriero was one of four finalists for the Walter Payton Award, given to the FCS's top offensive player. He finished this year for the Hawks with a career-high (and Monmouth single-season record) 1,995 yards rushing. Guerriero has track speed and a 190-pound frame meaning that he could attract attention in the scouting community as a change-of-pace back at least.

  49ers | Raheem Mostert not on injury report    Fri Jan 17, 05:53 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Mostert is over the illness that limited his workload last week and the calf cramp that sidelined him in the fourth quarter last week is a nonfactor this week. He's probably the best 49ers running back play for DFS this weekend.

  49ers | Tevin Coleman on track to play    Fri Jan 17, 05:35 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Coleman was the lead back last week with Raheem Mostert battling an illness during the week. The team might go back to Mostert first or employ something closer to a 50-50 committee this week, although Coleman ran hard last week and almost broke a few long runs.

  NFL | Thaddeus Moss entering draft    Fri Jan 17, 03:59 PM

Louisiana State TE Thaddeus Moss announced Friday, Jan. 17, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Randy Moss's son might not be an early draft pick, but we should still watch where he lands in the draft. He had two scores in the national title game and should be drafted primarily as a receiver.

CB Logan Ryan (illness) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Brown could get back on the field for this game, although the rookie Long has played very well in his absence during the playoffs. Jackson should be on the spot against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs passing attack.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) has felt better this week and will play Sunday, Jan. 19, in the AFC Championship Game, head coach Andy Reid said Friday.

Footballguys view: Kelce had one of the best games by a tight end in playoff history last week despite playing hurt. He'll be a major factor against a Titans defense did well against the Ravens tight ends last week.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill garners 2 awards    Fri Jan 17, 02:12 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill on Friday, Jan. 17, was announced as the winner of the Comeback Player of the Year and Most Improved Player awards by the Pro Football Writers of America.

Footballguys view: Tannehill had a rough tenure with the Dolphins, including an ACL tear and multiple years under Adam Gase, but he showed just how much Gase held him back and Marcus Mariota held back the Titans offense. He should get a franchise tag at worst and a long term deal like the one Kirk Cousins got at best this offseason.

  Packers | Davante Adams will be on move    Fri Jan 17, 01:59 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams will line up from different locations in the formation in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19, QB Aaron Rodgers said Friday. 'I'm not sure if they (the 49ers) are gonna move (CB Richard Sherman) around, but we're for sure gonna move Davante around,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: The 49ers could also bracket Adams and force Aaron Rodgers to throw to someone else to beat them. He was a major factor last week in the win over Seattle, especially on third down.

  Titans | Adam Humphries to make trip    Fri Jan 17, 01:52 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries (ankle) will travel with the team to Kansas City for the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19, head coach Mike Vrabel said Friday. Vrabel added that Humphries has made good progress this week and will continue to be evaluated.

Footballguys view: Humphries was a big free agent addition when the Titans landed him despite Bill Belichick offering more money in New England. He could be very useful if the Titans have to play from behind against the Chiefs.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill has had quiet postseason    Fri Jan 17, 12:39 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill has thrown for 72 and 88 yards on 15-of-29 passing overall in the team's two postseason wins so far.

Footballguys view: The Titans haven't needed the passing game to open up to advance in the playoffs yet, but that should change against Kansas City on Sunday.

  NFL | Joe Burrow eager for Bengals?    Fri Jan 17, 12:25 PM

LSU QB and 2020 NFL Draft prospect Joe Burrow is the near-consensus projected No. 1 overall pick, currently owned by the Cincinnati Bengals. 'He's excited to even be in that conversation, and if the Bengals do draft him, he's going to be happy,' Burrow's father, Jimmy, said in an interview Thursday, Jan. 16, with Montreal radio station TSN 690.

Footballguys view: Burrow was the top high school football player in Ohio previously. This would be a homecoming of sorts, although he played his high school ball in Athens, which is across the state from Cincinnati.

  49ers | George Kittle improving    Fri Jan 17, 11:33 AM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) said his ankle is feeling 'fabulous' Friday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Kittle was a fantasy non-factor last week because the 49ers cruised to a victory on the back of the defense and running game. He could be more important as a receiver if the Packers have more success on offense than they did in a 37-8 loss to the 49ers earlier this year.

  Lions | Danny Amendola could be back next season    Fri Jan 17, 01:06 AM

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola is set to become an unrestricted free agent, but he's a 'prime candidate' to be re-signed, in the opinion of The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett.

Footballguys view: Amendola helped the Lions thin wide receiver group and had one of his best years as a pro in 2019. He will have some marginal value in PPR leagues if he returns to Detroit.
