  NFL | Rishard Matthews expects to sit out season    Wed Oct 17, 11:34 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) has worked out for a few teams but does not expect to sign with a team this season.

Footballguys view: Matthews cited his criminal record as a problem, but there is also probably doubt about his level of play. He's droppable even in deep dynasty leagues.

  NFL | Nick Bosa focused on NFL     Tue Oct 16, 02:26 PM

Ohio State DE Nick Bosa (abdomen) is withdrawing from school and focusing on rehabilitating his abdominal injury leading up to the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Bosa, the younger brother of Chargers DE Joey Bosa, should be one of the top first-round picks in the 2019 NFL draft. He suffered a core injury in mid-September and decided to have surgery to repair the damage. Now leaving college football for the pros, Bosa won't be in danger of aggravating the injury in a game. The next time we see him perform should be the 2019 Scouting Combine next February.

  NFL | Jeremy Maclin a hot commodity?    Sat Oct 6, 09:05 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) is close to being at full strength, and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network believes teams will be bringing in Maclin for visits soon.

Footballguys view: Maclin could be a pre-emptive add in extremely deep leagues on this news. He could be intriguing in Philadelphia or Kansas City, two of his former teams, or maybe in Green Bay with their wide receiver injury issues.

  NFL | Dez Bryant hoping for Dallas reunion?    Thu Oct 4, 01:21 AM

Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) tweeted on Tuesday, Oct. 2, that he prefers to return to the Dallas Cowboys but would be open to playing elsewhere if that wasn't an option. According to Ed Werder, however, the team is not interested in re-signing Bryant.

Footballguys view: Bryant probably could have been dropped without remorse in dynasty leagues at this point. Either his demands are out of whack or the league just doesn't think much of him right now.

  NFL | Dez Bryant expects to sign soon    Sat Sep 29, 12:26 PM

Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) said he expects to sign with a team in the near future.

Footballguys view: Does he mean with an NFL team in real life or on Madden? The interest just doesn't seem to be there with Bryant. Reports have surfaced about teams questioning how much he wants to play football at this point of his career. Bryant is positive about his situation but we'll take a more skeptical view...it still may be some time before Bryant finds a new home. Stay tuned.

  NFL | Matt Moore declines workouts    Tue Sep 25, 02:09 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) has chosen not to work out for the Tennessee Titans or San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Moore would be an upgrade for the Titans and 49ers as a veteran backup. Perhaps he doesn't like the fit with either team. There have been rumblings that Moore's arm is shot and that's why he didn't get the starting job last year in Miami when Ryan Tannehill went down with a season-ending injury.

  NFL | Martavis Bryant could receive one-year suspension    Sun Sep 9, 09:03 AM

Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) is facing a possible one-year suspension from the National Football League for his latest violation of the league's substance abuse policy, according to a source. The NFL is currently reviewing the matter and could announce a decision as soon as this week.

Footballguys view: Bryant isn't worth carrying in dynasty leagues any longer.

  NFL | Jeremy Maclin plans to play    Wed Sep 5, 03:15 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Ravens) hurt his hamstring while training and is a couple weeks away from being at full health. He did receive offers before training camp and still intends to play this season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine Maclin having much left in the tank. Even when he is healthy and does sign with a new team, we'll keep the veteran on the waiver wire speed dial just in case.

  NFL | Dez Bryant waiting for right situation    Tue Aug 28, 08:48 PM

Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) indicated on Twitter he is content with waiting until the right situation, even if it means sitting out games into the regular season. 'I will play ball this year just might be a lil bit later in the year,' Bryant said.

Footballguys view: Bryant may get another chance in the NFL...later in the year. Right now, Fantasy GMs should look elsewhere for late-round 'flier' picks. Keep Bryant on your waiver wire speed dial if things heat up for him later in the regular season.

  NFL | Julius Thomas retires    Fri Aug 24, 04:25 PM

Free-agent TE Julius Thomas (Dolphins) announced his retirement from professional football Friday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2011, Thomas was a fantasy superstar with Peyton Manning. He scored 24 touchdowns in two seasons with the Broncos (2013, 2014) but failed to match the same success in stops with the Dolphins and the Jaguars.

  NFL | Victor Cruz retires    Tue Aug 21, 10:25 AM

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) announced his retirement Tuesday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Cruz was quite the fantasy factor at his best. Undrafted out of UMASS in 2010, Cruz posted WR1 numbers in 2011 and 2012. Injuries hit in 2013, and he never was the same after that. Cruz will most be remembered for salsa dancing his way into hearts across America. Reports indicate the broadcast booth is next for Cruz.

  NFL | Brent Celek considering retirement    Fri Aug 17, 07:33 PM

Free-agent TE Brent Celek (Eagles) said he has received a few contract offers but is considering retirement at this time.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick for the Eagles back in 2007, Celek was one of the best blocking tight ends in the league. At 33-years old and coming off a Super Bowl championship, we could see Celek decide to hang up his cleats.

  NFL | Malcolm Mitchell healthy    Tue Aug 7, 08:04 AM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Malcolm Mitchell (Patriots) was waived by the New England Patriots healthy. He passed his physical, but concerns with his knee kept other teams from trading for him.

Footballguys view: If he is truly healthy, it's a surprise that the Patriots would release Mitchell. He's healthy for now, but the grind of the game will probably change that soon after Mitchell joins a new team.

  NFL | Bashaud Breeland lining up more visits    Mon Jul 23, 09:05 PM

Free-agent CB Bashaud Breeland (Redskins) is expected to meet with the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns later this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Breeland has visited with the Raiders this week but left without a deal. He has a visit with the Chiefs too. Some time in the near future the veteran should find a new home after having his contract with the Panthers voided due to a failed physical.

  NFL | Two tight ends clear waivers    Sat Jul 21, 08:28 PM

Free-agent TEs Beau Sandland (Cardinals) and Brandon Z. Barnes (Lions) cleared waivers Saturday, July 21, and are officially free agents.

Footballguys view: Sandland is a pass-catching tight end who has spent time on the Packers and Panthers practice squads and could still get another shot when he is over the non-football injury that led to his release. Barnes is more of a long-term project, but he has a higher ceiling than Sandland. He could end up on a practice squad after recovering from the injury that landed him on injured reserve earlier in the offseason.

  NFL | Bashaud Breeland to meet with AFC West teams    Sat Jul 21, 05:05 PM

Free-agent CB Bashaud Breeland (Redskins) is scheduled to meet with the Oakland Raiders Sunday, July 22, and Monday, July 23, and will then meet with the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday, July 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Breeland's contract with the Panthers voided back in March and he hasn't gotten much interest since then. The Raiders could use a veteran like Breeland as a starter, and the Chiefs are in need of help at the cornerback position since trading Marcus Peters to the Rams. Breeland is recovering from foot surgery because of an injury he sustained while on vacation.

  NFL | Two more workouts for Eli Rogers    Sat Jul 21, 04:15 PM

Free-agent WR Eli Rogers (Steelers) is scheduled to work out for the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders this week, according to a source.

  NFL | Eli Rogers close to signing    Thu Jul 19, 10:57 PM

Free-agent WR Eli Rogers (Steelers) posted on social media Thursday, July 19, that he plans to sign with a team within the next few days.

Footballguys view: Earlier this year, the Steelers did not tender Rogers as a restricted free agent, making him an unrestricted free agent. He's recovering from a knee injury suffered last year and could return to the Steelers at a lower price. We'll see if the Steelers bring him on board again as veteran depth behind Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and rookie James Washington.

  NFL | Lardarius Webb mulling offers    Wed Jul 18, 02:01 PM

Free-agent FS Lardarius Webb (Ravens) wants to continue his NFL career and has received multiple offers that he is considering.

Footballguys view: There hasn't been much news on Webb since the Ravens released him back in March. He could continue playing, but he won't see as many snaps as he used to be when he was an outside corner. Webb has length and finds his way around the ball, so some team might want him as veteran depth in 2018.

  NFL | Darrelle Revis retires    Wed Jul 18, 10:52 AM

Free-agent CB Darrelle Revis (Chiefs) announced his retirement from the NFL Wednesday, July 18.

Footballguys view: We'll see Revis in the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday soon. Revis was a first-round pick of the Jets back in 2007 and he was the definition of a 'shutdown' corner. He defined the position so much that his spot on the field became known as 'Revis Island' and opposing quarterbacks didn't challenge him much. Revis won Super Bowl 49 with the Patriots and should wind up being honored by the Jets in their Ring of Fame after two stints with the team.

  NFL | Terrell Owens won't give up on comeback    Tue Jul 17, 02:37 PM

Free-agent WR Terrell Owens (Seahawks) is 100 percent committed to playing in the NFL or CFL, according to Owens' agent. The 44-year-old Owens activated a 10-day clause Saturday, July 14, that forces the Edmonton Eskimos to offer him a contract or release him. 'He just loves the game and wants to get back to playing, whether it's the CFL or NFL,' his agent said.

Footballguys view: It's been a minute since Owens played organized football. He last played in the NFL back in 2010 for the Bengals and he did get a cup of coffee with the Seattle Seahawks for about a month (but never played) in 2012. Owens last suited up for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League in 2011. He's less than a month from being enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame but still thinks he can play. We'll see if the Eskimos share that same belief.

  NFL | DeMarco Murray set to announce retirement    Fri Jul 13, 02:06 PM

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) is expected to announce his retirement from the NFL on Friday, July 13.

Footballguys view: Murray overcame a catastrophic injury in college at Oklahoma and reinvented himself. He defied expectations at multiple stops with an intensity only matched by the likes of Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch. At his best, he was one of the top 3-5 backs in the league. The veteran back camp injury signing list will get one shorter.

  NFL | Kenny Vaccaro expected to sign soon    Tue Jul 10, 03:32 AM

Free-agent FS Kenny Vaccaro (Saints) is expected to sign with 'some team' before camp begins. He's healthy but the market for safeties didn't develop as expected and there was no need to hurry and sign a deal when free agency first opened up.

Footballguys view: Vaccaro still has game, so it's just a matter of time - and perhaps injury - before a team steps up.

  NFL | DeMarco Murray looking to sign    Mon Jul 9, 01:46 PM

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) said he hopes to sign with a team before the start of training camp and has talked with four or five teams this offseason. He said the offseason has allowed him to recover from knee and hamstring injuries he dealt with last season.

Footballguys view: Murray still has the ability to perform -- he's just a season removed from a 1200 yard season in 2016. However, where he lands is going to be a huge factor in his production. His drop to a 3.6 yards per carry average is a concern, but Murray has seen that stat roll up and down over the last four seasons, so it's something that could improve again. Early draft participants seem to feel he still is worth a roll of the dice, as he is going as the 62nd back on average right now.

  NFL | Sam Beal could go in third round    Sat Jun 30, 03:15 PM

Western Michigan CB Sam Beal could go in the third round of the NFL supplemental draft. One team said he was valued as a second rounder if he were eligible for the NFL draft.

Footballguys view: There was some buzz about Beal being a first-round pick if he would've stayed in college, performed well and came out in the 2019 NFL draft. Beal has good size at 6'1" 190 pounds, and the Broncos corner has a nose for the ball. His length and football IQ put him around the play if it comes into his vicinity. All 32 teams were at his pro day last week, and we fully expect him to be selected in the Supplemental Draft on July 11th.

  NFL | Six teams present for Bright Ugwoegbu's workout    Sat Jun 30, 10:21 AM

The Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks had representatives present for Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu's workout Thursday, June 28.

Footballguys view: Ugwoegbu didn't show well during his workout, measuring in at less than 6'1" (6007) and weighing only 205 pounds. He is too small for linebacker play in the NFL, and his workout numbers (4.9 40-yard dash) show he may not be athletic or fast enough to play in the league either. Ugwoebu was suspended indefinitely earlier in 2018 and officially left the Oregon State program earlier this month. With these numbers it doesn't seem like he's going to be selected in the 2018 Supplemental Draft on July 11th.
