  NFL | Aaron Murray receiving interest    Thu Apr 17, 09:15 PM

Georgia QB Aaron Murray has met with the Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans, Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Murray is a solid quarterback prospect and one we think some teams would do well to wait for in the third round. His quick setup, tight spiral, good accuracy and experience with pro-style offense are all things teams should focus on rather than his recent ACL injury.

  Jets | Chris Johnson open to sharing carries    Thu Apr 17, 08:46 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said he is fine with sharing carries with other running backs this upcoming season if it helps the team win games.

Footballguys view: Johnson might actually play more effectively with less carries and wear and tear on his body. Also, by allowing Chris IVory to take the between the tackles pounding, Johnson might even get a few more years out of his body.

  Jets | Chris Johnson expects to be cleared soon    Thu Apr 17, 08:42 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he expects to receive medical clearance to resume football activities in the near future. He underwent knee surgery in January but expects to be fully healthy for training camp.

Footballguys view: We've heard conflicting reports as to whether Johnson has arthritis issues in the knee or not, but in what amounts to a one-year, $4 million contract, the Jets have nothing much to lose. Then again, that's what people thought when the team signed David Garrard.

  Dolphins | Interested in Erik Swoope    Thu Apr 17, 07:32 PM

The Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in Miami basketball player Erik Swoope, who will be available in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Swoope has the height to be intriguing and many a former basketball player has transitioned to football but Swoope would be starting from scratch at the pro level. If this sounds nuts, blame the Denver Broncos for wanting to set up a workout. Height, explosiveness and a good work ethic are all nice, but it'd be hard to spend a high pick on him or hold a roster spot open while he learns the fundamentals most players got in college at the latest.

  NFL | Tom Savage invited to draft    Thu Apr 17, 07:05 PM

Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage has been invited to attend the 2014 NFL Draft, but he has not decided if he will accept the invitation.

Footballguys view: Interesting. The divide between what the draftnicks think of Savage and what the media-and perhaps the NFL-think of him seems to be pretty wide. Savage has a huge arm but stares his targets down, lacks touch on is throw and ran from competition twice (from Rutgers and Arizona). Savage isn't sure about it himself it seems as he is unsure whether to attend the draft.

  Jets | Chris Johnson says he is healthy    Thu Apr 17, 01:34 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said a report that he has arthritis in his knee is not true. Johnson said he has no arthritis in his knee.

Footballguys view: Even if he's a bit banged up, Johnson will split carries with Chris Ivory, saving some wear and tear. At $4 million a year, with a second year as an option, it's really a cheap deal with very little risk. We'll have to see how the split goes for carries, but Johnson may be more effective with less carries.

  Lions | Visit with Marqise Lee    Thu Apr 17, 01:32 PM

The Detroit Lions visited with Southern California WR Marqise Lee Thursday, April 17.

Footballguys view: You can never have too many receivers but it's unlikely they take Lee with their first pick - will he be there with their second? He'd be an interesting fit next to Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

  Seahawks | Visit with Cody Latimer    Thu Apr 17, 12:05 PM

The Seattle Seahawks visited with Indiana WR Cody Latimer Tuesday, April 15. Latimer's stock is rising, and he's projected as a late first-round pick or early second-round selection.

Footballguys view: Late first/early second seems a tad high for a guy who seems to lack a true extra gear to get away from defenders and doesn't run precise routes. On the other hand, he's got a decent combination of overall speed and good size, along with soft hands, so grabbing him as a late-second/early third makes sense. The Seahawks need a new receiver to replace the departed Golden Tate.

  Lions | Host John Brown    Thu Apr 17, 11:59 AM

The Detroit Lions visited with Pittsburgh State WR John Brown Wednesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Brown is a late-round receiver in a very deep class. His size allows him to get knocked off his routes and struggle with press coverage, but he runs a nice route,is dangerous in space and could develop as a slot guy or a return man.

  Eagles | Blake Annen works out    Thu Apr 17, 10:39 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles worked out Cincinnati TE Blake Annen recently.

Footballguys view: Blake Annen is a late-round flier guy with decent size. If the Eagles do select him, it would take him a while to get up to speed though.

  Redskins | Arbitrator rules in DeSean Jackson, agent case    Thu Apr 17, 10:25 AM

An arbitrator ruled that Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in back loans and fees.

Footballguys view: If you want to keep the "Jackson is a cancer and immature" narrative going--and who doesn't?--you could do so with this story. In so far as what we think, this is a non-issue and won't impact his on-field work next season.

  Jets | Three to visit    Thu Apr 17, 09:33 AM

Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham, Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks and Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard will visit the New York Jets next week.

Footballguys view: The Jets left free agency without a second big receiver, a replacement for Antonio Cromartie or an upgrade at safety, so wide receiver and secondary make a ton of sense.

  49ers | Terrance West to visit Monday    Wed Apr 16, 11:27 PM

Towson RB Terrance West will visit the San Francisco 49ers' facilities Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: West is a big back who can run in the 4.5s. The 49ers already have a stacked group of backs, so adding West to the mix would be a curious move. Some think the small-school power back will be a top-100 pick.

  49ers | Shopping LaMichael James    Wed Apr 16, 11:27 PM

According to a league source, the San Francisco 49ers have been shopping RB LaMichael James. He finds himself behind RBs Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and perhaps Marcus Lattimore on the depth chart at running back this season.

Footballguys view: Good luck. The free-agency market for backs is terrible, so trading for a part-time back isn't going to harvest much in return. James could be a decent change-of-pace back, but he's buried on the depth chart in San Francisco. They have a great group of backs from top to bottom. We even like Jewel Hampton in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Seahawks | Sidney Rice returning    Wed Apr 16, 07:55 PM

The Seattle Seahawks are re-signing WR Sidney Rice to an undisclosed one-year deal Wednesday, April 16, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks lost Golden Tate in free agency earlier this year, and they needed help at the position. Rice needs to stay healthy in order to play up to his potential. That's been a problem for him during his time in Seattle. He knows the system and this is his best fit.

  NFL | No limitations for Aaron Murray    Wed Apr 16, 07:10 PM

Georgia QB Aaron Murray (knee) said he didn't have any limitations with his surgically repaired knee during his pro day Wednesday, April 16, despite wearing a brace on his left knee. His workout Wednesday included 54 passes to several receivers. 'We did a lot of throws on the run, left and right, to demonstrate my ability to cut off my leg and show everyone that I'm healthy,' he said. 'That way these teams don't have to worry about if they draft me that I'm going to have to sit out or anything like that.'

Footballguys view: Good news for Murray here. He's a mid- to late-round quarterback with some upside. Murray is 6' tall and has drawn comparisons to Drew Brees or Russell Wilson because of his accuracy within the pocket. He's not as athletic as those two, and his accuracy suffers when throwing off platform.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe's marijuana charges dropped    Wed Apr 16, 06:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe pleaded guilty Wednesday, April 16, after being arrested last November for marijuana possession.

Footballguys view: He pleaded guilty to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment, and in return, the marijuana charge was dismissed. He agred to pay $610 in fines and court costs. Bowe should avoid suspension by the league, but they're likely to put him in the substance-abuse program.

  Falcons | Terrence West to visit    Wed Apr 16, 04:49 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are scheduled to meet with Towson RB Terrence West Wednesday, April 23. The team also reportedly conducted a private workout with West.

Footballguys view: West is a power back who can run in the 4.5s. He lacks vision, but West keeps his legs moving after contact and has a nose for the red zone. The Falcons are looking for a young running back behind Steven Jackson to groom into an eventual starter.

  Jets | Financial terms for Chris Johnson    Wed Apr 16, 04:39 PM

  Texans | May look to take RB in middle rounds    Wed Apr 16, 04:36 PM

The Houston Texans may consider selecting a running back during the middle rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft that could become RB Arian Foster's backup in the future.

Footballguys view: With Ben Tate moving on in free agency to the Browns, the Texans need a backup behind Foster. The draft is full of running backs with different styles. During the middle rounds there will still be quality players left at the position.

  Broncos | Will work out two prospects    Wed Apr 16, 04:29 PM

The Denver Broncos are scheduled to work out Miami QB Stephen Morris and Mississippi WR Donte Moncrief before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Moncrief is a big-bodied wide receiver who can adjust to poorly thrown passes. He is not a burner, but he does track the ball well over his shoulder. Moncrief is a value pick for some team out there after a statistically disappointing 2013.

  Raiders | Hope to trade Terrelle Pryor     Wed Apr 16, 04:24 PM

The Oakland Raiders hope to trade QB Terrelle Pryor before the start of the offseason program Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Pryor is big, athletic and has a strong arm. Accuracy and decision-making skills are still a huge problem. If they can't trade him, then the Raiders should release Pryor.

  Ravens | Eric Ebron still an option    Wed Apr 16, 04:21 PM

The Baltimore Ravens could still consider selecting North Carolina TE Eric Ebron during the 2014 NFL Draft even though they added TE Owen Daniels this offseason.

Footballguys view: Any team should be interested in Ebron. He's a talented move tight end who creates mismatches every time he's on the field. Ebron can attack the deep middle seam of the defense to stretch opponents thin. He's a weapon, our favorite tight end this year, and a top-15 first-round pick.

  Patriots | Visit with Jimmy Garoppolo     Wed Apr 16, 04:20 PM

The New England Patriots visited with Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo earlier this week.

Footballguys view: We're cooler than most on Garoppolo. He's got a quick release, but his offense (against poor competition) was incredibly simple. At Eastern Illinois he was asked to basically catch the snap and throw immediately to a predetermined target. If the Patriots added him it would be interesting to say the least. Wherever he goes, Garoppolo needs to sit and learn.

  Cowboys | Three prospects visiting    Wed Apr 16, 03:48 PM

The Dallas Cowboys are meeting with Oregon WR Josh Huff, Oregon State DE Scott Crichton and West Virginia DE Will Clarke Wednesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Huff is a multi-purpose weapon who can line up all over the field. We like him as a late-round player with developmental upside because of his athleticism and run-after-the-catch ability.

  Jets | Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory to be tandem    Wed Apr 16, 03:48 PM

The New York Jets will use RBs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory as a tandem this upcoming season and have them split carries. RB Bilal Powell will be the team's No. 3 running back.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. We should see Mike Goodson released by the Jets in the near future.

  Jets | Sign Chris Johnson     Wed Apr 16, 03:29 PM

The New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson (Titans) to a two-year deal Wednesday, April 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This is the move that makes the most sense for both parties. Johnson will split time in the backfield with Chris Ivory. The Jets get a speedy playmaker who can excel running with an athletic quarterback in the backfield with him.
