  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.

  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.

  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.

  Jaguars | Allen Robinson not worried about knee     Thu Feb 15, 12:22 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson (knee) doesn't believe the torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered last season will keep prospective teams from wanting to sign him. Robinson added that every team has seen how good he can be when he's healthy.

Footballguys view: The market for Robinson will be a bit cool since he was injured, but there will still be interest. He's right -- we've all see what he can do when healthy. Now teams are going to have to decide the likelihood he can reach that level again. It may take some time, but we think he can.

  Cardinals | More on Larry Fitzgerald extension    Thu Feb 15, 10:13 AM

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald signed a one-year, $11 million extension during the 2017 season in case he decided to return. He can earn $1 million more in incentives.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald knows he's near the end, but being the consummate professional he is, won't try to whine and needle his way out of Arizona, even if he could be in a situation which might bring him a Championship. He's going to be a big help to head coach Steve Wilks and whoever the new quarterback is.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald coming back    Thu Feb 15, 10:00 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Thursday, Feb. 15, that he'll return for the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: This is a big boost for the Cardinals and new coach Steve Wilks. While the quarterback situation is unsettled to say the least, having a veteran like Fitzgerald will be a huge advantage to whomever ends up under center.

  Broncos | Denver to keep both wide receivers?    Wed Feb 14, 01:22 PM

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders could both stay on the roster in an effort to better lure a big-name quarterback, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sanders, in particular, had been rumored to be traded or released this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Broncos don't have a lot in the passing game, and they'll have even less if they get rid of Thomas or Sanders. Denver is likely to make a huge push for QB Kirk Cousins. Having Thomas and Sanders on the roster would help entice Cousins to the Mile High City.

  Giants | Brandon Marshall a candidate for release?    Tue Feb 13, 12:04 PM

New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) finished with only 18 catches for 154 yards and played in only five games before he was lost for the season due to an ankle injury which required surgery. Given his limited effectiveness and the fact the Giants could save $5.1 million on the cap, the expectation is the Giants will cut ties with him, according to the New York Post's Paul Schwartz.

Footballguys view: Marshall is expected to be fully healthy from the ankle injury that cost him most of the 2017 season. He's not the player he was in 2016 for the Jets (1,500-plus receiving yards, 14 touchdowns), but Marshall could bring veteran experience for a team in need out there.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald's salary guaranteed    Tue Feb 13, 02:35 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million salary became guaranteed on Friday, Feb. 9. However, this does not impact his retirement decision. If he chooses to retire, he would not receive that money.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald was supposed to make up his mind about retirement once the Cardinals had their coaching staff in place. We don't think there will be any 'Favre-Watch 2018' for Fitzgerald, but he should be making a decision in the near future.

  Buccaneers | No talks ongoing for Mike Evans    Mon Feb 12, 04:56 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and the Buccaneers are not currently negotiating a new deal, according to Evans' agent. Evans' fifth-year option was picked up last year, so he will be earning $13.2 million in 2018. Both parties will evaluate Evans' contract when the time comes, but for now he's going to focus on playing out his current deal, his agent added.

Footballguys view: Evans should get a big contract from the Buccaneers at the right time. They could get a deal done before the start - or early on - in the 2018 season. His numbers were down in 2017 with a career low in yards (1,001) and yards per reception (14.1), but that was primarily due to QB Jameis Winston being banged up (shoulder) and struggling to play with the injury. With a healthy Winston, Evans should be in for a bounce-back season.

  Giants | Odell Beckham making progress    Mon Feb 12, 12:07 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) said he is doing well in his rehab from his ankle injury and expects to be ready for the start of the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: Beckham had ankle surgery back in October and he's been on the road to recovery since then. We should see him eased back into action near the start of training camp. We'd be surprised if Beckham does much of anything during OTAs and minicamp in the spring.

  Raiders | Oakland eyeing Jarvis Landry?    Sun Feb 11, 11:14 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr formed a connection with Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry at the Pro Bowl, and Paul Gutierrez of believes head coach Jon Gruden could push the front office to pursue Landry.

Footballguys view: Michael Crabtree is unlikely to be with the Raiders in 2018, and the team will need to find a weapon opposite Amari Cooper. Landry is a catching machine and can move the chains consistently. No matter where he lands, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Landry catch 100 passes in his first year with his new team.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson wants chemistry with QB    Sun Feb 11, 09:51 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson said he and QB Jameis Winston need to 'merge' this offseason.

Footballguys view: Jackson's first year with the Buccaneers didn't go as planned. Instead of being a downfield, big-play target, Jackson caught only 50 passes, three touchdowns and averaged only 13.4 yards per catch (his career average is 17.3 yards). Winston was banged up last year with a shoulder problem that negatively impacted his play. If healthy, we could see Jackson and Winston connect in a big way like most expected them to.

  Packers | Trevor Davis may see more snaps    Sun Feb 11, 04:45 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Trevor Davis should have a bigger role as a receiver next season, in the opinion of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Michael Cohen.

Footballguys view: He's emerged as their best return man, but Davis is buried on the depth chart at wide receiver. Davis did get 55 snaps on offense over the last two games of the regular season, catching three passes for 56 yards (all in Week 17). He's an explosive player with the ball in his hands, but injuries would have to hit in front of him on the depth chart for Davis to play a fantasy relevant role.

  Patriots | Brandin Cooks feeling good    Sun Feb 11, 12:23 PM

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (head) is encouraged by how he has felt since suffering a head injury during Super Bowl LII, according to people close to him.

Footballguys view: Cooks was knocked out of the Super Bowl on a vicious hit. It's good to hear that he's feeling good, and Cooks should be good to go for the start of offseason workouts. A top-10 fantasy WR each of the last two years, Cooks should once again be a WR1 for fantasy owners in 2018.

  Patriots | Extension possible for Brandin Cooks    Sat Feb 10, 09:24 PM

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks wants to remain with the team, and Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald believes Cooks could offered an extension to lower his $8.459 million cap hit in 2018.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in 2014, Cooks is playing on the fifth-year option in 2018. He's set to hit the open market in 2019, but the Patriots may work out a deal to keep him around much longer.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders on trade block?    Sat Feb 10, 12:22 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders could be placed on the trade block this offseason because of his salary and his uncertain durability, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala. Sanders missed four games this season because of an ankle injury and is scheduled to have salary cap hits of around $10.9 million and $12.9 million over the next two seasons.

Footballguys view: Sanders just isn't worth the money the team is paying him...especially if the team is going to be more run heavy in 2018. His contract is not outlandish, but the Broncos shouldn't be expecting much in return if a team is willing to trade for the veteran receiver.

  Broncos | Denver has decision on Demaryius Thomas    Sat Feb 10, 12:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has a $1 million option in his contract that would trigger the final two years of the contract if exercised, and the Broncos have until the middle of March to make a decision on the option. The team would take on $3.1 million in dead money if they decide to decline the option. Thomas would count around $12 million and $17.5 million in the cap space over the next two seasons if the option is picked up.

Footballguys view: We think the Broncos could look to restructure Thomas in an effort to lower his cap number. The team needs to free up as much cap space as they can as the Broncos are expected to make a strong push for quarterback Kirk Cousins.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman should be ready for camp    Fri Feb 9, 02:37 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald nearing contract deadline    Fri Feb 9, 02:08 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million base salary for 2018 will be guaranteed if he is remains on the roster Friday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald still has not decided if he will play next season or retire. He has previously stated that he would make his decision after the new coaching staff was put in place. Former Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks was named their new head coach in late January, so Fitzgerald has been mulling his decision based on the new staff for a week or so. We think he's leaning towards a return. No matter his decision, Fitzgerald is locked into a spot in the Hall of Fame when his playing days are done.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin in line for guaranteed money    Thu Feb 8, 07:09 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin will have $4.5 million of his $8.25 million base salary for 2018 guaranteed if he is on the roster Friday, Feb. 8.

Footballguys view: Baldwin missed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time since 2014, and not by much. While the Seahawks might try to renegotiate ahead of the deadline, he's still going to get paid. And Seattle needs him.

  Jets | Robby Anderson not done with Jets    Thu Feb 8, 12:22 PM

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson will not be released despite his off-field issues, which most recently consist of a recent arrest for several charges, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. He is just 24 years old and will 'only' cost $630,000 in 2018.

Footballguys view: Despite this, you have to assume that the Jets appetite for more nonsense like Anderson has been involved with off the field is likely very small. Consider this his final chance with the New York Jets.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) does not have a timetable in his recovery from a broken bone and ligament damage in his left ankle.

New England Patriots practice squad players C James Ferentz, WR Cody Hollister, S David X. Jones, OL Jason King, CB Ryan Lewis, WR Riley McCarron, S Damarius Travis, LB Trevor Reilly, TE Will Tye and CB Jomal Wiltz were signed Tuesday, Feb. 6.

Footballguys view: Tye is the player to watch here as we're always interested in Patriots tight ends. He was an intriguing dynasty player earlier in his career with the Giants, but Tye bounced to the Jets and then to the Patriots practice squad for 2017.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh combo already has chemistry    Tue Feb 6, 04:11 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster teamed up for the best quarterback-receiver combination in the NFL in 2017 with a 134.8 passer rating.

Footballguys view: They've got chemistry that should only get stronger as they continue to play together. Smith-Schuster was a dynamic rookie who finished as the no17 WR in standard scoring leagues. He's a top-20 fantasy WR going forward with his role and a Steelers offense that should continue to fill the air with footballs even though OC Todd Haley was fired and replaced by former QBs coach Randy Fichtner.

  Ravens | Baltimore signs DeVier Posey    Tue Feb 6, 02:20 PM

Free-agent WR DeVier Posey (Broncos) was signed by the Baltimore Ravens Tuesday, Feb. 6.

Footballguys view: Posey was out of the league in 2017. He was last trying to earn a spot on the Broncos roster back in 2016. A third-round pick (Texans) out of Ohio State in 2012, Posey has bounced around the league to a few different teams. When healthy, Posey has some speed and quickness but he'll be a longshot to make the Ravens 53-man roster.

  Patriots | Free agency decisions ahead for New England    Mon Feb 5, 01:55 PM

The New England Patriots face the prospect of losing several key free agents. The Patriots have to address key impending free agents in OTs Nate Solder, Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle, along with RB Rex Burkhead, WR Danny Amendola, CB Malcolm Butler, WR/ST Matthew Slater and RB Dion Lewis. New England is projected to have approximately $17 million in salary cap space. TE Dwayne Allen, TE Martellus Bennett, DT Alan Branch, LB David Harris and RB Mike Gillislee all could be released to create more cap space.

Footballguys view: Solder is their franchise left tackle, and there's not a lot of talent at the position in this free agent class. There is speculation that Solder will end up retiring.
