  NFL | Colin Kaepernick workout moved    Sat Nov 16, 02:41 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick's scheduled workout Saturday, Nov. 16, was postponed and will be moved to an alternative location in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon. The workout will be open to the media and all NFL team representatives as allowed under league rules.

Footballguys view: Kaepernick wanted transparency in this process and the league was not going to let the media into the original workout. Reports have come out from the workout that Kaepernick's arm looked fine, but of course there is more for teams to consider than just his physical ability. We'll see if some team actually brings him in on a contract.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much attendance this workout gets from teams around the league. Kaepernick has not played since 2016 but there are likely to be at least a few teams seriously interested if he looks good in his workout.

  NFL | Antonio Brown unlikely to play again this year    Sun Nov 10, 10:57 AM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is not expected to play in the National Football League again this season. Three teams have been in contact with him but if he were to receive an offer, the NFL would be prepared to place him on the commissioner's exempt list, according to multiple sources. This means that any team that signed Brown would have to pay him until the league's investigation into sexual assault allegations against him has concluded.

Footballguys view: Brown can be dropped in redraft leagues, but it's still a buy low moment in dynasty leagues.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) will meet with the NFL Wednesday, Nov. 13, and he is eager to present his side of pending issues. There are still teams interested in signing him.

  NFL | Seattle not interested in Antonio Brown    Sat Sep 21, 02:28 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) attracted interest from the Seattle Seahawks after his release from the Oakland Raiders, but that no longer appears to be the case after he was released Friday, Sept. 20, by the New England Patriots. 'We're pretty well set (at wide receiver) right now,' Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said when asked about Brown at a Friday news conference. 'We kind of know where we're going with that.'

Footballguys view: Brown could be out there for some time. The veteran wide receiver has now been released from two different teams (Raiders, Patriots) over the last two weeks. It's more than just off-field drama with Brown, as he's been accused of sexual assault and rape. The league is taking this accusations seriously but since Brown is a free agent, he is not eligible to be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List.

  NFL | Antonio Brown to avoid exempt list for now    Fri Sep 20, 10:51 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is free to sign with any NFL franchise as an unrestricted free agent and will not be placed on the commissioner's exempt list until he lands on a roster, the league announced in a statement Friday, Sept. 20. In part, the NFL's statement read, 'Our office is presently investigating multiple allegations, some of which are the subject of pending litigation. We have as yet made no findings regarding these issues. The investigation is ongoing and will be pursued vigorously and expeditiously. As long as Mr. Brown is a free agent, placement on the Commissioner's exempt list is not appropriate. If he is signed by a club, such placement may become appropriate at any time depending on the status of the investigation. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, he may also be subject to discipline if the investigation finds that he has violated the law or league policies.'

Footballguys view: Brown is free to sign anywhere but teams don't seem to be lined up to sign him. We'll see if some team is willing to take a chance on a player who has been released by two teams over the last two weeks.

  NFL | Antonio Brown likely to have suitors    Sat Sep 7, 12:21 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Raiders) is too much of a talent, and in spite of his recent troubles, will be signed by another team as soon as the risk is low enough, in the opinion of several unidentified league executives speaking with a national NFL reporter Saturday, Sept. 7.

Footballguys view: The risk has to be lowered by the salary. Brown has fallen out with the Raiders and the Steelers so teams will be guarded when considering adding the superstar wide receiver.

Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Cowboys) was disappointed by the circumstances by which the Dallas Cowboys released him Tuesday, July 23, saying the team asked him to take a pay cut just a couple days before the start of training camp. 'I'm good. Just wished they did this earlier, they asked me for a pay cut Monday (July 22),' Hurns said.

Footballguys view: Hurns has been working to get back from his ankle/leg injury that kept him out of all offseason workouts. The veteran should be able to find a home when healthy enough to pass a physical. He was on track to return at some point in training camp.

Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Cowboys) was asked by the Dallas Cowboys to take a $4 million pay cut in 2019 before he declined the offer and was released Tuesday, July 23.

Footballguys view: Hurns was scheduled to make $6 million in 2019, including a $4 million base salary and $2 million in incentives, but the Cowboys wanted a restructured deal worth $2 million total with Hurns coming back from his fractured fibula/ankle suffered in the postseason.
