  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon to return in 2015?    Sun Jan 25, 09:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has overcome his issues, and plenty of league sources expect him to be back with the team in 2015.

  Browns | Josh Gordon contract affected    Sun Jan 25, 09:06 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be under contract through the 2016 season, and he will only be a restricted free agent after that year due to his looming suspension for another failed substance test.

  Bears | Jay Cutler happy with coaching addition    Sun Jan 25, 09:06 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler reportedly once touted new quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains to be the quarterbacks coach in 2012. The two had a 'strong, personal relationship.'

  Browns | Josh Gordon fails drug test    Sun Jan 25, 03:59 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has reportedly failed another drug test and will be subject to a one-year banishment, according to multiple league sources.

Footballguys view: Oh man, here we go again. Gordon is a fantastic talent, but his inability to stay clean has marred his NFL career. We wouldn't be surprised to see the Browns cut Gordon.

  Dolphins | Miami want to re-sign Charles Clay    Sun Jan 25, 10:34 AM

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay is a player that the Dolphins would like to re-sign and are expected to offer him a contract in the next few weeks.

Footballguys view: It's a wise move for the Dolphins. Clay is a versatile player who can be a dangerous asset on the field. Last year, Clay had 58 catches for 605 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games. The Dolphins also have an emerging talent in Dion Sims, so don't expect them to break the bank to keep Clay. He'll have to sign a team-friendly deal to stick around in 2015.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles to work out with receivers    Sun Jan 25, 09:58 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he plans to have a passing camp in Southern California in February with his wide receivers, tight ends and running backs in order to work on their chemistry.

Footballguys view: We like the motivation of this young quarterback. Bortles did not improve much as a rookie, but he gained valuable experience as a 14-game starter. Working with his receivers should help them have better chemistry on the field this next season.

  NFL | Marcus Mariota may not throw at Combine    Sun Jan 25, 08:05 AM

University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota (shoulder) may opt out of throwing at the NFL Combine after spraining the acromioclavicular joint in his right shoulder during the National Championship Game.

Footballguys view: Not throwing at the Combine--and not showing up to the Senior Bowl (he was eligible to play)--could hurt Mariota's draft stock a bit. That being said, it's not going to crush his value completely. We believe Mariota will still be an option for the first overall pick, and he may not fall farther than sixth (New York Jets).

  Rams | Begin contract talks with Kenny Britt    Sun Jan 25, 07:19 AM

St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt and his agents have started contract talks with the team. Britt, who has been in St. Louis just one season, indicated he wanted to remain with the club past 2014.

Footballguys view: It's a good move for both sides. Britt still has fantastic talent, he just needs to stay healthy in order to play up to his potential. The Rams don't have great depth at the position, and they could really use a wideout like Britt in 2015. Now, they just need a quarterback to go along with him.

  Rams | Keeping eye on Shane Carden    Sun Jan 25, 07:13 AM

East Carolina QB Shane Harden is being looked at by the St. Louis Rams in the lead-up to the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Harden was at the 2015 Reese's Senior Bowl, but he failed to impress. Our very own Cecil Lammey and Matt Waldman report that Harden struggled with accuracy and decision making during the week of practice. Harden is likely to be a fourth- or fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. His upside is that of a career backup. The Rams need to aim quite a bit higher.

  Ravens | Met with Sammie Coates    Sun Jan 25, 07:10 AM

Auburn WR Sammie Coates met with Baltimore Ravens team officials during Senior Bowl week in Mobile, Ala.

Footballguys view: Coates was very impressive during the week of practice at the Senior Bowl. He's incredibly fast, and on film was a great deep threat at Auburn. However, at the Senior Bowl Coates showed the ability to run crisp routes and gain separation against different types of coverage. He could be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Patriots | Tom Brady improved out of pocket    Sat Jan 24, 10:48 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 12 of his 24 pass attempts on scramble plays outside of the pocket this year for 198 yards and two scores. Last year, he was 0-of-4 on similar plays.

Footballguys view: With the Patriots strong ground game, it's wise to move Brady around from time to time. New England has benefited from the play-action passing their rushing attack sets up.

  Packers | John Kuhn to test market    Sat Jan 24, 12:34 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent FB John Kuhn said he would be open to re-signing with the Packers but wants to test the free-agent market before signing with a team.

Footballguys view: There's just not much of a market for fullbacks. We have a feeling Packers fans will still be hollering "Kuhn!" in 2015.

  Dolphins | Mike Wallace wants to return to Miami    Fri Jan 23, 09:31 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said he wants to return to the team next season, but he added that he would welcome testing the free agent market if the team chooses to release him.

Footballguys view: Wallace has made quite a bit of money with the Dolphins, but he's been a bit of an odd fit. After two years, he's still not on the same page with QB Ryan Tannehill on deep passes. He has a $12.1 million cap number in 2015, but there's still $6.6 million left in dead money on his contract.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray getting support from QB    Fri Jan 23, 06:29 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is getting support from QB Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have to bring Murray back, right? We can't imagine him signing with another team after the season he had with Dallas in 2014. He's the engine to the offense, and it would be incredibly difficult to replace him. Murray is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but we feel the Cowboys will find a way to bring him back.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 23, and is questionable for the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo wants Dez Bryant to return    Fri Jan 23, 05:48 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is getting support from QB Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys could place the franchise tag on Bryant this offseason. The tag comes with a one-year fully guaranteed salary of around $12.7 million. They would prevent any other team from negotiating with him, and this would allow them a longer time (July 15th deadline) to sign him to a long-term deal.

  Colts | Matt Hasselbeck unsure about future    Fri Jan 23, 04:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: Hasselbeck has been vacillating on whether or not he's going to continue playing for some time. He's set to hit free agency this year, but the Colts could easily re-sign him to continue as the backup quarterback behind Andrew Luck.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta status update expected soon    Fri Jan 23, 04:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) met with some specialists last week, but the team is not expected to have an update on his status for a few weeks, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: This second hip injury is career-threatening, but the Ravens are optimistic that Pitta will be able to play in 2015. Harbaugh said he has talked with the team's trainer about the situation but does not want to discuss it at this point.

  Browns | Browns owner not sold on Johnny Manziel    Fri Jan 23, 01:09 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel had a big proponent last year in owner Jimmy Haslam, but Haslam now thinks the team needs a quarterback in order to get their team turned in the right direction. 'We've got to get a quarterback and got to get it fixed,' Haslam said. 'What I would say to our fans is, we're going to continue to work really hard to find that quarterback who can make us a championship team.'

Footballguys view: Manziel made no impact as a rookie, and his future in the NFL is very much in doubt right now. He needs to show better play if and when he gets on the field. Plus, Manziel needs to show better commitment and maturity off the field. Haslam isn't ruling out Manziel being the starting quarterback in 2015, but he's leaving it open for other options, including QBs Brian Hoyer or Connor Shaw.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham might avoid surgery    Fri Jan 23, 10:25 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he'll rehabilitate his shoulder injury after the Pro Bowl, but he hasn't made a final decision on surgery. 'It's something we talked about and is something that's still being debated,' Graham said. 'This is kind of a trial to see where I'm at. I've had three weeks off and I've finally had some time to heal. It feels great, and I'm going to continue to do my rehab and get back to 100%.'

Footballguys view: We'll have to see how Graham continues to recover before any decision is made about surgery. By the time training camp rolls around, Graham should be good to go.

  Chiefs | Phillip Dorsett interviews    Fri Jan 23, 03:01 AM

Miami WR Phillip Dorsett interviewed with the Kansas City Chiefs during Senior Bowl week in Mobile, Ala.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs need all the help they can get at wide receiver. Our very own Cecil Lammey and Matt Waldman liked what they saw from Dorsett at the Senior Bowl practices this week. Dorsett is quick off the line of scrimmage and elusive after the catch.

  49ers | Tony Sparano good news for Vernon Davis?    Thu Jan 22, 10:09 PM

San Francisco 49ers tight ends coach Tony Sparano tutored Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten in his first two years in the NFL, and ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez believes TE Vernon Davis could benefit from having Sparano as a position coach.

Footballguys view: Davis needs to bounce back in a big way in 2015. His 26 catches were the lowest total since his rookie season of 2006 (20), and his 245 yards receiving were a career low. Basically, anything can help here.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray more than a rusher    Thu Jan 22, 09:22 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray was in pass protection on 52 more plays than any other running back on the roster in 2014.

Footballguys view: Murray is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2015. He's a do-everything back who can dominate on Sundays. We'll see if the Cowboys can secure him with a new long-term contract in 2015.

  Saints | Mark Ingram wants to return to Saints    Thu Jan 22, 06:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason, wants to return to the team next year, and he thinks the interest is mutual.

Footballguys view: After years of struggling to produce and struggling to stay healthy, Ingram finally put it together with the Saints. Ingram ran for 964 yards on 226 attempts and nine touchdowns last year, which were all career highs. His 74.2 yards per game ranked him eighth in the league.

  49ers | SF tight end production was awful    Thu Jan 22, 06:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis had just two touchdowns in 2014, and they both came in Week 1. He also wasn't targeted at all in the red zone after the opening weekend of the regular season after catching 13 TDs in 2013. San Fran tight ends combined for just 39 catches for 423 yards (10.9 yards per catch) in 2014.

Footballguys view: Awful might be a nice way of putting it. As Charles Barkley would say, Davis was "turrible" in 2014. The Niners and Davis hope that the hiring of Tony Sparano as the new tight ends coach can fix that heading into 2015.

  Patriots | Seattle to be physical with Gronk?    Thu Jan 22, 05:39 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is often a tough matchup for opposing defenses, but Seattle Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane said he doesn't think Gronkowski is 'that good.' 'He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls,' Lane said. Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Lane could be lined up often against Gronkowski in the slot in the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: Gronk smash is more than just a saying, it's Gronkowski's mindset. Good luck with Seattle trying physical coverage against him. The weakness for the Seahawks defense is up the middle, and we think it will be difficult for them to slow Gronkowski down.

  Jets | Geno Smith shows promise    Thu Jan 22, 05:28 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot of talent and promise, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. At the same time, Bowles acknowledged that the quarterback position is currently an open slate, with Smith and Matt Simms the only quarterbacks currently rostered.

Footballguys view: Smith had an up-and-down 2014, but he's getting a fresh start with Bowles. He did finish the season strong with a 358-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Dolphins. We'll see if Smith can hang onto the starting job and take that next step in 2015.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer to receive extension?    Thu Jan 22, 04:46 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer could be re-signed this offseason, according to his agent. Hoyer is expected to meet with general manager Ray Farmer and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo in the near future.

Footballguys view: Hoyer is set to hit the open market, but we can't imagine the market being white-hot for his services. He should be kept by the Browns because of the numerous question marks surrounding Johnny Manziel.

Brian Hoyer player page


  Browns | Browns not sure who QB is    Thu Jan 22, 02:38 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be working with a new offensive coordinator this year in John DeFilippo, but DeFilippo is unsure if the team's quarterback next year is currently on the roster. 'We're not sure if our starting quarterback's in the building right now or not,' DeFilippo said. 'If he is, that's great. If he's not, that's great, too. Whoever's in that room is going to be coached hard, be held accountable and be expected to do the things that we expect out of Cleveland Browns quarterbacks.' DeFilippo said that all Cleveland quarterbacks will begin the offseason with a clean slate.

Footballguys view: When they say they aren't sure who he is, are they saying they haven't met him or they aren't sure the guy they met is a quarterback? Is one more or less disturbing? A lot of franchises would protect a first rounder to the point of insanity, but not Cleveland. Whether Johnny Manziel is the guy or not, this quarterback situation is alarming. Manziel clearly has growing to do on and off the field, the free agent market is terrible and there aren't a lot of options that will be worth the 19th pick. A year after grabbing a supposed franchise quarterback, Cleveland is back in the exact same place.

  Ravens | Sign Aldrick Robinson     Thu Jan 22, 02:04 PM

The Baltimore Ravens signed WR Aldrick Robinson to a Reserve/Future contract Thursday, Jan. 22.

Footballguys view: Robinson has flashed a little bit during his time in the pros, but we're not talking about an impact wide receiver here. He's best utilized as a return man, and Robinson is no lock to make the Ravens roster in 2015.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco on board with Marc Trestman    Thu Jan 22, 12:43 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco will have his fourth difference offensive coordinator in as many years in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. However, head coach John Harbaugh is confident Flacco will get along with Trestman after the quarterback was involved in the decision to hire Trestman in the first place. "I think personality-wise, they're going to hit it off really well. They've both very smart, they're both very detailed and they're both very direct in their communication,' Harbaugh said.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Trestman can recapture the magic he used to have or if dealing with Jay Cutler for two years sucked it all out of him. Flacco has a big arm but can be inconsistent. Before Cutler, Trestman had turned several vets into Pro Bowlers. Can he get Flacco back to his Super Bowl shape? If nothing else, the passing offense should be more deadly.

  Patriots | Tom Brady could come under fire    Thu Jan 22, 10:05 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is now scheduled to speak to the media Thursday, Jan. 22, and he could come under fire due to the report of deflated footballs in the AFC Championship game. Head coach Bill Belichick denied any involvement in the issue, and Brady will likely have to answer questions on the situation.

Footballguys view: Yes, Ballghazi or Deflategate or 'this week's ridiculous nonsense' could very well make Brady look bad but then again, given that Belichick gleefully threw him under the bus, people might feel pity on him. We cannot imagine him suspended or penalized in a major way but this story has already gone off the rails so it's truly anyone's guess.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch levied multiple fines    Thu Jan 22, 09:48 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $20,000 Thursday, Jan. 22, for an obscene gesture he made after scoring a touchdown in the NFC Championship game, according to an NFL official. He's also subject to a fine for not speaking to the media after the game, and the league is considering fining him significantly more than the $50,000 he has been previously fined for not speaking to reporters. An NFL official said there would be increasing fines if Lynch misses sessions during Super Bowl week, with each fine being more than the two $50,000 fines already imposed and the upcoming penalty.

Footballguys view: Of course he was. He should send a cake to the Patriots because this would be a bigger story this week and the next if it wasn't for a bunch of balls being under-inflated. It's long been thought Lynch might have some sort of anxiety issue and he might need more help from the NFL and his team. The guy is clearly uncomfortable in front of the press and yet he gets tossed out there with little support from either entity. Expect more of the same next week.

The Detroit Lions scheduled interviews with DT Danny Shelton (Washington), CB Doran Grant (Ohio State), CB Quinten Rollins (Miami Ohio) and QB Bryce Petty (Baylor) during Senior Bowl activities.

Footballguys view: The Lions are always looking for an edge in the secondary and could have to replace Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley this offseason (both are free agents) so all these make sense. Petty could get looked at as a backup right now. According to our very own Cecil Lammey and Matt Waldman, Petty has struggled to impress during the week of practice in Mobile.

  Ravens | Met with Justin Hardy    Thu Jan 22, 05:18 AM

WR Justin Hardy (East Carolina) met with the Baltimore Ravens this week during Senior Bowl activities.

Footballguys view: The Ravens could use some more receiver help, even if Steve Smith continues to play like a man half his age. Hardy could be a nice fit in Marc Trestman's offense. Hardy could go off the board as a late first- or early second-round pick. In college at East Carolina, Hardy was known for amazing production, quickness and route-running ability.

  Giants | Met with two WRs    Thu Jan 22, 05:07 AM

WR's Sammie Coates and Devin X. Smith met with the New York Giants front-office staff at the Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: Anyone the Giants bring on will have a shot at depth at the very least. We don't know what Victor Cruz will look like next year but at the end of the day, he and Odell Beckham Jr. have precious little behind them so there is room for new blood. Coates is incredibly fast and has the strength to beat press coverage at the line of scrimmage. Smith is a vertical threat who can make difficult catches seem routine.

  Dolphins | GM praises Ryan Tannehill    Thu Jan 22, 04:35 AM

Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey had praise for QB Ryan Tannehill, saying the team is 'excited' about his progress to date. "We are excited about [Tannehill's] future as a Dolphin. ... We saw a lot of progress [in 2014]," Hickey said.

Footballguys view: Tannehill was expected to take a leap forward but at the end of the day he stumbled a bit. Is it the coaching, is it his weapons or is it him? The Dolphins feel there is progress, but is there enough to warrant an extension for Tannehill? He is in the final year of his rookie contract and the team has to figure out what they want to do with their young quarterback.

  Dolphins | GM non-committal on Mike Wallace    Wed Jan 21, 09:00 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's future with the team is unclear. General manager Dennis Hickey would not say Wednesday, Jan. 21, whether Wallace will be back or if his end of season drama will play into the decision. Wallace said everything is being evaluated.

Footballguys view: Of course they're non-committal. It's hard to be "all in" on a receiver who has failed to live up to his large contract. Wallace had a $17 million cap number in 2014, but that number falls to $12.1 million in 2015. With only $6.6 million left in dead money, it's not out of the question to think the team would consider cutting ties with the underachieving veteran.

  Bengals | Marvin Lewis happy with Andy Dalton    Wed Jan 21, 08:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has the support of his head coach Marvin Lewis. The head coach said Wednesday, Jan. 21, that he is happy with Dalton, and the club has no plans to bring in a backup quarterback to push Dalton. 'Fortunately, somehow I've got the right little thing on my shoulder that says, 'Don't get into a quarterback controversy',' Lewis said. 'That's worked for (QB Jon Kitna) to (QB Carson Palmer) to Andy. It's helped us have the success we've had and those guys have been good players, productive players. Even when they've left out of here they've been productive. It works.'

Footballguys view: Dalton can get you to the playoffs, but he doesn't win in the postseason. In order to take the next step, Dalton needs to get this problem fixed. Lewis is happy, but he knows Dalton must get better if the Bengals get back to the playoffs in 2015.

  Broncos | Zac Dysert signs Futures contract    Wed Jan 21, 04:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Zac Dysert was signed to a Reserve/Future contract Wednesday, Jan. 21.

Footballguys view: Dysert has been on the Broncos practice squad this year after making the active roster as a third quarterback when he was a rookie in 2013. He was a seventh-round pick out of Miami (OH), and Dysert has athleticism and a rocket arm. Dysert has raw accuracy, but he's a favorite of GM John Elway. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring him.
