  NFL | Sam Bradford hampered by knee injury    Tue Nov 6, 03:20 AM

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Sam Bradford (Cardinals) was unable to practice during the last five weeks of his tenure with the Arizona Cardinals because his left knee -- which has already been subject to two ACL repairs -- is basically 'bone on bone' with no cartilage.

Footballguys view: Bradford is free to sign with any team after clearing waivers. Teams will be hesitant to bring him in because of his long history of knee injuries.

  NFL | Sam Bradford officially a free agent    Mon Nov 5, 05:35 PM

Free-agent QB Sam Bradford (Cardinals) cleared waivers Monday, Nov. 5, and is officially a free agent, according to a source.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Bradford's immense salary and history of knee problems prevented anyone from putting a waiver claim in on him. He'll be hard pressed to find work in the league again this season and maybe even after that.

  NFL | Chris Johnson ready to walk away    Mon Nov 5, 02:11 PM

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, Nov. 5.

Footballguys view: CJ2K will always be remembered fondly by Fantasy GMs who had him when he was at his best. Johnson, a first-round pick in 2008 out of East Carolina, had the best season of his career in 2009 when he had 12 100-yard games and rushed for 2,006 yards on the season. He had six 1,000-yard rushing seasons during his career and was one of the fastest running backs to ever play the game. Johnson held the Scouting Combine record with a 4.24 40-yard dash until John Ross (4.22) beat that mark in 2017.

  NFL | Jeremy Maclin undergoing procedure    Sat Oct 27, 12:08 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (glute, hamstring) is scheduled to undergo a procedure on his glute and hamstring area in the near future and will not play this season. He expects to play next season.

Footballguys view: A hamstring injury kept him from getting a new team this offseason and now he's going to surgically repair the problem. We'll see if the veteran (who hasn't looked like his old self in two years) can get a shot with a new team for the veteran minimum in 2019.

  NFL | Free-agent Terrelle Pryor feeling good    Mon Oct 22, 10:49 PM

Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (groin) said Monday, Oct. 22 that he is close to 100 percent and he feels he has made so much improvement from his groin injury that he could be ready to play as soon as Sunday, Oct. 28. He has been contacted by several interested teams and might be an option for those who missed out on trading for Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper.

  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 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.

The NFL is currently reviewing the matter and could announce a decision as soon as this week.

  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.

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.

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.
