  NFL | Ray Rice's appeal to be heard soon    Tue Oct 21, 01:26 PM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) will have the appeal of his indefinite suspension from the NFL heard Nov. 5-6, according to media reports. A decision on whether commissioner Roger Goodell will testify at the hearing is expected to come this week.

  NFL | Ray Rice could return within a month    Sun Oct 19, 10:11 AM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) could be reinstated by the NFL by mid-November after a scheduled appeal hearing, which would allow him to sign with another team. There is no guarantee a team would sign him right away, though.

Footballguys view: The big question is whether any NFL team would sign Rice with the furor and outrage about him so fresh in the minds of NFL fans. He certainly looked ready for a bounceback season in the preseason before he was released. Dynasty owners who don't have a moral objection should consider adding Rice if he is on the waiver wire.

Free-agent OG Jason Pinkston (lung) said he has been medically cleared to start working out and would like to try to play again in the NFL. Pinkston suffered a blood clot in his lung during the offseason and was waived by the Cleveland Browns with an injury settlement.

  NFL | Cedric Benson attempting comeback    Wed Oct 8, 10:25 AM

Free-agent RB Cedric Benson (Packers) is working out and hopes to land a tryout with an NFL team.

Footballguys view: There are a few teams that could look for running back help (Denver, Carolina, Minnesota), but we don't think Benson is on the radar. We'll see if he starts to get some private workouts, and even when he does, we're not overly excited about his fantasy prospects.

Free-agent TE Jermichael Finley (neck) has received interest from some teams but likely will not play in 2014, according to sources. Finley is finalizing a $10 million disability insurance policy that likely would be paid to him in a few months if he does not play this season. Finley is still not able to pass a physical at this point.

  NFL | LaMichael James still out of work    Wed Sep 24, 08:35 PM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday, Sept. 24, that he was surprised free-agent RB LaMichael James (49ers) was still available on the open market. He coached James at the University of Oregon. 'I think LaMichael's a hell of a football player,' Kelly said. 'I think maybe the timing had something to do with it because people's rosters may have been set. But I know him first-hand, I got an opportunity to coach him. I love the kid. He's an awesome football player, he's an awesome person.'

  NFL | Champ Bailey looking to play again    Wed Sep 24, 04:34 PM

Free-agent CB Champ Bailey (Saints) is healthy and is looking to sign with a team. He is willing to play cornerback, nickel back or safety for a team.

Footballguys view: Bailey is not the same player he used to be, but he could help a team looking for a veteran leader in a banged up secondary. It's telling that his phone has not been ringing off the hook since the Saints decided to let him go.

  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.

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.

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

  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 | 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.
