  Dolphins | Miami looking to trade Jarvis Landry?    Tue Feb 20, 11:04 PM

  Dolphins | Miami places franchise tag on Jarvis Landry    Tue Feb 20, 08:20 PM

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry received the non-exclusive franchise tag Tuesday, Feb. 20.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins now have until July 15th to work out a new long-term deal with Landry. If he plays in 2018 on the franchise tag, Landry will make around $16 million fully guaranteed. The team has to find a way to work something out with Landry, and also have to decide whether or not to pick up DeVante Parker's fifth-year option for 2019.

  Colts | Indy hopes to have Andrew Luck at OTAs    Tue Feb 20, 06:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still rehabilitating his throwing shoulder, but head coach Frank Reich hopes his star quarterback is healthy enough to participate in organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Reich can hope all he wants, but we'd be shocked if Luck did much of anything in OTAs during the spring. Luck just started throwing again, and the Colts need to be wise with him for the rest of the recovery time that is needed.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell likely to be tagged    Tue Feb 20, 04:00 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive the franchise tag again this offseason.

Footballguys view: That tag is worth $14.5 million. He and the Steelers would still be able to accomplish a long-term deal. Tagging him now would insure the two sides have more time (until mid-July) to get something done.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis, OT Josh Wells and G/C Tyler Shatley had their options for the 2018 season exercised Tuesday, Feb. 20.

Footballguys view: All three are going to be back with the Jaguars in 2018. Lewis is a big-bodied blocker entering the final year of his contract.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin cut    Tue Feb 20, 11:19 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was released Tuesday, Feb. 20. The Bucs will save $6.75 million. Due to the structure of his contract, the team will absorb no dead money on their salary cap.

Footballguys view: Martin is not the same player he used to be as injuries have hampered his game over the last couple of years. Some team should be interested in signing him to a one-year, 'prove it' deal. The Buccaneers might lose Charles Sims in free agency, so expect them to be looking for help on the open market or in this deep 2018 draft class at the position.

  Jets | Kirk Cousins could see $60 million in first year    Tue Feb 20, 10:00 AM

Footballguys view: The Jets are reportedly willing to do whatever it takes to land Cousins. They can front load his deal and still have plenty of room to make other improvements elsewhere.

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker reached the 800-yard mark for the fourth consecutive season in 2017. He's the only tight end to reach that plateau even once in franchise history. In addition, he became the fourth player in the history of the Titans to record five consecutive seasons with at least 60 receptions.

  Panthers | No franchise tag for Panthers?    Mon Feb 19, 06:54 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agents OG Andrew Norwell, DT Star Lotulelei and PK Graham Gano are among Carolina's free agents who are not expected to receive the franchise tag, according to The Charlotte Observer's Joseph Person.

Footballguys view: Norwell is one of the top free agents available at any position. The Panthers already have a ton of money invested in the rest of the offensive line, so they'll likely let Norwell hit the open market.

  Dolphins | C.J. Anderson of interest to Miami?    Mon Feb 19, 06:33 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson could be pursued by the Miami Dolphins again if he were to be released by the Broncos. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and new running backs coach Eric Studesville both coached Anderson in Denver and Miami gave Anderson an offer just two years ago before it was matched by the Broncos.

Footballguys view: If (when?) Anderson is released by the Broncos, then we fully expect him to end up in Miami. The move makes too much sense for both sides. If Anderson was with the Dolphins he would form a RBBC with Kenyan Drake.

  Dolphins | Miami to meet with Baker Mayfield    Mon Feb 19, 06:26 PM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will dine with members of the Miami Dolphins prior to Oklahoma's pro day March 14. The Dolphins own the No. 11 overall pick in this year's draft and are making an effort to get to know Mayfield if he remains available at that spot.

Footballguys view: Mayfield may not be on the board by the time the Dolphins pick. They might have to move up in front of the Jets (no6) if Mayfield is their guy.

  Redskins | A Kirk Cousins tag and trade not realistic    Mon Feb 19, 04:30 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: Washington wants to get something for Cousins before they lose him in free agency. Tagging him for a third time goes against the spirit of the rule, and there have been reports that Cousins would file a grievance if Washington went that route.

  Lions | Eric Ebron not going anywhere    Mon Feb 19, 03:37 PM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron will not be released as he enters the 2018 season under his fifth-year option. Ebron will be guaranteed $8.25 million when the new league year begins. The inconsistent tight end's presence will limit playing time for fellow TEs Darren Fells and Michael Roberts.

Footballguys view: Ebron has yet to fully play up to his potential as a pro. The Lions will give him one more go and see if he can finally flourish. Fantasy owners know after three seasons as a TE2 what to expect from Ebron.

  Jets | NYJ all-in on Kirk Cousins    Mon Feb 19, 10:34 AM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will have heavy pursuit from the New York Jets, who are prepared to pay 'whatever it takes' to land him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Jets could use a franchise quarterback and Cousins is arguably the best one available. Whether or not he's free and clear, or if Washington is going to tag him and ask for something via trade is unknown at this point. What is known is that Cousins is likely to get a deal greater than the $27.5 million annually that Jimmy Garoppolo just received from the 49ers.

  Jaguars | Allen Robinson a priority?    Sun Feb 18, 10:25 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson will likely take precedent over impending free-agent WR Marqise Lee when it comes to contract negotiations, according to Gregg Rosenthal of

Footballguys view: Robinson could be franchise tagged by the Jaguars. He's coming off an ACL injury that cost him most of the 2017 season. Tagging Robinson would be expensive, but it would give the Jaguars time to see if he's back to full strength before committing to a long-term deal.

Denver Broncos impending free-agent RB Jamaal Charles plans to play in 2018 but will not be re-signed by the Broncos.

Footballguys view: Charles proved that he still had some left in the tank last year with the Broncos. The team didn't really use him as much as they could, and that's likely to be the story with Charles from here on out for the rest of his career. Any team in need of a speedy, change-of-pace back could show interest in Charles.

  Broncos | Virgil Green hopes to return    Sun Feb 18, 03:20 PM

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Virgil Green said he would like to re-sign with the Broncos but is preparing for a change this offseason.

Footballguys view: Green has developed into a fine blocker and he's never been utilized much as a receiver. The Broncos don't have much at the tight end position, but we don't see them clamoring to keep Green on the roster in 2018.

  Vikings | Minnesota may look at AJ McCarron    Sun Feb 18, 12:36 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron is expected to receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings if the Vikings are not able to re-sign impending free-agent QB Case Keenum.

Footballguys view: McCarron's entry into the free agent market could change the plans for multiple teams out there. A fifth-round pick out of Alabama in 2014, McCarron is known as a game-manager type of quarterback. He can work well within a system but struggles to improvise when a play breaks down. In this QB desperate league however, McCarron is set to get an offer similar to what Mike Glennon (3-year, $45 million, $18.5 million guaranteed) got from the Bears in 2017.

  Browns | Cleveland to look at Terrelle Pryor?    Sun Feb 18, 12:28 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor likely will receive interest from the Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: Pryor's one year with Washington did not go well. He appeared in only nine games, snaring only 20 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown. That's a far cry from the 1,000-yard season he had with the Browns in 2016. Going back to Cleveland makes a lot of sense.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are going to need Driskel at full strength since A.J. McCarron is set to be an unrestricted free agent. Driskel will likely have competition to be the primary backup to starter Andy Dalton.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman a trade chip?    Sat Feb 17, 11:17 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman would have trade value, according to a high-ranking AFC evaluator. 'Great complement to a starter and he could fill the role as a starting running back,' the evaluator said. 'Great speed and athleticism.'

Footballguys view: A third-round pick in 2015, Coleman is entering the final year of his contract in 2018. The Falcons gave Devonta Freeman $22 million guaranteed last summer, so signing Coleman to a similar deal sounds unlikely. We could see Coleman dealt before the trade deadline so the Falcons get something for him before losing him to free agency in 2019.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker the lead back?    Sat Feb 17, 11:00 PM

The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of, and Legwold believes RB C.J. Anderson may not be back with the team.

Footballguys view: The Broncos coaching staff likes Booker. Now it's time to see if he can play at a high level. Booker is swift and tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. However, he is often banged up and has only averaged a measly 3.6 yards per carry through two seasons in the NFL. With this great RB class in the 2018 NFL draft, we think the Broncos would be wise to add a rookie with a premium pick to push or unseat Booker as the top back.
