  NFL | Tajh Boyd signs with FXFL     Sat Sep 20, 03:19 AM

Former New York Jets QB Tajh Boyd, who also tried out with the New York Giants, has signed with the Florida Blacktips of the Fall Experimental Football League.

Footballguys view: So much for the first-round draft status Boyd had just a year ago at Clemson. He failed to make an impression during camp, and he'll have to play in other leagues if he wants to keep playing.

  NFL | BenJarvus Green-Ellis drawing interest    Wed Sep 17, 08:00 PM

Several clubs have reportedly reached out to free-agent RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Bengals), who is still in the process of rehab after suffering a hip injury in the preseason.

Footballguys view: It's after Week 1 of the regular season, so teams won't have to guarantee Green-Ellis' salary for the rest of the year. With all the RB injuries around the league, we could see someone take a shot on the veteran back.

  NFL | LaVon Brazill to have suspension reduced    Mon Sep 15, 05:04 PM

Free-agent WR LaVon Brazill (Colts) will have his suspension reduced from 16 games to 10 games once the NFL and NFL Players Association agree to a new drug policy.

Footballguys view: Awesome. He's not much of a fantasy factor until he signs with a new team. Brazill has good speed and ball-tracking ability.

  NFL | Vincent Brown receiving interest    Thu Sep 11, 01:17 PM

Free-agent WR Vincent Brown (Chargers) is scheduled to work out for at least three teams next week if he does not sign with a team before the end of the week.

Footballguys view: Brown entered the league with a lot of promise but a combination of health issues and overall mediocre play led to his release once Malcom Floyd was healthy and Keenan Allen exploded onto the scene. We'll have to see where he lands before we determine how much value he has but based on history, we'd hazard a guess that it's minimal - maybe a WR4 or WR5 - maybe....perhaps.

  NFL | Police allegedly sent Ray Rice tape to league    Wed Sep 10, 05:52 PM

A police source said they sent the video of an altercation involving free-agent RB Ray Rice to an NFL executive five months ago. The executive acknowledged through a phone conversation that the tape was received.

Footballguys view: The league has been saying they didn't have access to the footage, but that might not have been the case. There are some clamoring for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to lose his job over the mishandling of this incident. We'll see what happens here, and right now all options--including Goodell's resignation--are possibilities.

  NFL | Ray Rice signing won't happen    Mon Sep 8, 06:00 PM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) will not be approved to sign with a new team until further direction is provided from Roger Goodell.

Footballguys view: It's going to be a long time before we see Rice back in the NFL--if we ever see him play again. Hopefully Rice can get the help he needs and turn his life around.

  NFL | Ray Rice suspended indefinitely    Mon Sep 8, 02:37 PM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

Footballguys view: Good. What Rice did was horrific, and he doesn't deserve to play in the NFL. We'll see if he's ever reinstated by the league and if there's going to be a team to take a chance on him. Under new NFL policy, a second domestic violence incident results in a lifetime ban.

  NFL | Ray Rice video news to league    Mon Sep 8, 10:59 AM

The NFL didn't see Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice strike his now wife, Janay Rice, in video footage before suspending him for two games, according to NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy. 'We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator,' McCarthy said. 'That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.'

Footballguys view: Anyone who has seen the video knows how truly horrifying it is. We may see Rice get additional punishment now that more information has been released.

  NFL | Colt Lyerla arrested    Sun Sep 7, 01:31 PM

Free-agent TE Colt Lyerla (Packers) was arrested Saturday, Sept. 6, and charged with driving under the influence.

Footballguys view: Lyerla can be dropped even in the deepest of dynasty TE premium leagues. What little chance he had to catch on again vanished with this arrest.

  NFL | Gordon, Welker may return soon    Fri Sep 5, 09:03 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon and Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker could have their suspensions reduced if the players and owners agree on a new drug testing policy. The new policy that may be forthcoming would include testing for human growth hormone. Offseason use of amphetamines would move from the performance-enhancing substance policy to the substance-abuse policy. Welker would go from a first-time offender in the PED policy to a first-time offender in the substance-abuse policy, which means he would not be subject to suspension. The threshold to trigger a positive result on a marijuana test would rise. Gordon's positive marijuana test was barely above the NFL's current threshold for a positive test.

Footballguys view: This seems unlikely on its face, as the NFL would be opening a giant can of worms about retroactive application of new policies, but Florio is tuned in enough that we have to entertain the possibility. Add Gordon if you can, assuming the benches are long enough that you don't have to relinquish any key pieces.

  NFL | Andre Brown, Erin Henderson suspended    Thu Sep 4, 07:52 PM

Free-agent RB Andre Brown (Texans) and LB Erin Henderson (Vikings) have been suspended for the start of the season, according to a league source. Brown will be banned eight games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, and Henderson receives a four-game suspension for running afoul of the league's policy on substances of abuse.

Footballguys view: Could be a contributing factor in Brown's release if the Texans knew it was coming. A rough blow for the Vikings though, as Henderson is an important piece of the defense.

  NFL | Stephen Hill receiving interest    Sat Aug 30, 01:45 PM

Free-agent WR Stephen Hill (Jets) has received interest from three teams including a team in the AFC North, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Of course he is. Hill is only 23-years old, and he's got an intriguing size/speed combination. Following the footsteps of Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas at Georgia Tech, Hill has struggled with drops and knee issues as a pro.

  NFL | David Garrard wants to play    Thu Aug 28, 03:07 PM

Free-agent QB David Garrard (Jets) would like to return to an NFL roster, and thinks he has a chance to do that once rosters are cut down. "I actually haven't gotten any calls yet but my agent has reached out to the Rams and to a number of teams," Garrard said. "They've all said they have me on their 'hot list' so I think probably something will happen after these last cuts once teams realize who is available, who is not available and then maybe somebody like myself can join a team."

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Given his injury issues and the way he left the New York Jets, teams might think twice. Then again some team might get desperate and ring him up. And then we say again, good luck with that.

Footballguys view: Incognito was a part of the disaster known as "Bully-gate" with the Dolphins in 2013. He's a mean, aggressive interior lineman who still has the ability to play in the NFL. Some team may add him later in the year if injuries hit up front.
