San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) was seen running on a side field ahead of the team's practice Thursday, Jan. 23.

  Broncos | Bradley Chubb expected for offseason work    Thu Jan 23, 05:02 PM

Denver Broncos LB Bradley Chubb (knee) is making really good progress in his recovery, according to general manager John Elway Thursday, Jan. 23, and should be ready for organized team activities In May or the offseason program in April.

Footballguys view: The Broncos defense could look much more ferocious in 2020 with the return of Chubb. While Von Miller had a disappointing 2019, his stats could improve next season with Chubb getting a lot of attention on the opposite side of the formation.

  Chiefs | Chris Jones plans to play every snap in Super Bowl    Thu Jan 23, 04:56 PM

Kansas City Chiefs DL Chris Jones (calf) said Thursday, Jan. 23, he '1,000 percent' believes he'll be able to play every snap of Super Bowl LIV Sunday, Feb. 2.

Footballguys view: Jones is a playmaker and one of the best in the league at his position. Having him out there will complicate what the 49ers want to do on offense.

  49ers | Raheem Mostert excelled after contact    Thu Jan 23, 02:39 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert gained 158 of his 220 rushing yards after contact in the NFC Championship Game win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: Mostert had a monster game against the Packers. He could do more in the Super Bowl too depending on the health status of Tevin Coleman (shoulder). It was the most yards after contact by a running back in the postseason since 2006.

  Raiders | Derek Carr tired of rumors    Thu Jan 23, 01:49 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is tiring of the quarterback rumors surrounding the team -- the latest resulting from a photo taken of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, a pending free agent, and Raiders owner Mark Davis talking at Jan. 18 UFC fight in Las Vegas. 'C'mon man, when's it going to end?' Carr asked.

Footballguys view: Everyone is wondering where Brady is going to play in 2020. It would actually make a lot of sense if the Raiders made a run at Brady when he hits the open market. Carr is going to have to get used to the rumor mill, and it already seems like his time as the Raiders starter could be done in the near future. Only time will tell.

  Saints | Drew Brees' decision on hold    Thu Jan 23, 01:34 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees isn't rushing his decision on whether he'll return for another season. I wanted to give it at least a few weeks, months, postseason, just to take a deep breath and decompress a little bit and get some time with the family and then just reassess,' Brees said Wednesday, Jan. 22, during an interview at the Pro Bowl.

Footballguys view: Brees may not quite be what he used to be but by no means is he done from a physical or abilities standpoint. He'll have to make a decision before the start of free agency in early March. This quarterback market is about to get crazy in the NFL.

  Bengals | A.J. Green not keen on tag    Thu Jan 23, 01:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green, a pending free agent, could receive the franchise tag from the Bengals this offseason. 'The franchise tag is not the best thing,' Green said in a TV interview. 'But like I said, I'm not turning down 18 million dollars. It just happens. When you run a business, you have to make difficult decisions. But I feel like when you put that on me, then that's what you're showing me, you only want me for one year. And I always play with a chip on my shoulder.'

Footballguys view: The Bengals could use the tag on Green just to buy more time to get a new long-term contract done. If tagged, the two sides would have until mid-July to work something out. We'll see if a contract can be agreed upon before the tag would need to be placed on the veteran receiver.

  Cowboys | Amari Cooper seeks to stay in Dallas    Thu Jan 23, 01:10 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper said Thursday, Jan. 23, he hasn't had recent talks with his agent about his expiring contract, but said he wants to remain in Dallas a long time.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have money to hand out to guys like Cooper, CB Byron Jones and QB Dak Prescott and the franchise tag could be in place for someone set to hit free agency. Cooper was a bright spot on the Cowboys offense and is in line for a big deal if/when the Cowboys can find a way.

  Giants | Eli Manning not on retired list    Thu Jan 23, 12:27 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is retiring, but he won't be eligible to be placed on the reserve/retired list due to his expiring contract this offseason.

Footballguys view: That means Manning will be eligible to sign and play for the Giants or any other team in 2020, free of restriction and/or having to go through waivers. Keep this in mind if some team needs QB help down the 2020 stretch.

  Vikings | Gary Kubiak to be OC for Vikes    Thu Jan 23, 11:36 AM

Minnesota Vikings assistant head coach/offensive adviser Gary Kubiak was promoted to offensive coordinator Thursday, Jan. 23.

Footballguys view: The Vikings needed to do something since Kevin Stefanski took off to be the head coach of the Browns. This move isn't going to change much on the Vikings offense. They'll still use RB Dalvin Cook and the rushing attack to set up play-action passing with QB Kirk Cousins.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham unlikely to be back in 2020    Thu Jan 23, 01:20 AM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham is expected to be released during the offseason, in the opinion of The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who called the prospective move a 'given.'

Footballguys view: Not a terribly surprising take here. Graham has one year remaining on his deal. Releasing him would free up $8 million in cap room.

  Raiders | Jordan Love meets with Raiders    Thu Jan 23, 12:33 AM

The Oakland Raiders met with Utah State QB Jordan Love at this week's Senior Bowl, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal's Vincent Bonsignore.

Footballguys view: Love is likely to be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft. The Raiders have the No.12 overall pick and there's a chance that Love won't be on the board by the time they select.

  NFL | Denzel Mims highly impressive in Mobile    Wed Jan 22, 11:55 PM

Baylor WR Denzel Mims was 'uncoverable all day long' and arguably the best player on the North team during Senior Bowl practice Wednesday, Jan. 22, according to Pro Football Network's AJ Schulte.

Footballguys view: Mims is working his way up draft boards with his performance in Mobile. He's fast and was a decorated track athlete in college. Mims has great hands and body control as a receiver. We could see him work his way into the late first round of the 2020 NFL draft.

'I'm looking forward to sitting down with Odell face to face,' Stefanski said. 'I haven't had the chance to do that yet and I get the chance to do that (Thursday). And at that point, that's when I can start laying out my expectations for Odell and all of our players.' Beckham was caught on video at the College Football Playoff Championship Game earlier this month appearing to hand out cash to LSU Tigers players, as well as appearing to slap a security officer on the butt in the locker room. Charges had been filed against Beckham for the latter incident, but they were later dropped.

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees is a player that the Saints want to keep as long as he wants to keep playing, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.

Footballguys view: This is going to be up to Brees. If he wants to keep playing, the Saints want to keep him around. Brees takes one year at a time and will spend this part of the offseason deciding what he wants to do.

  Bengals | A.J. Green may return in 2020    Wed Jan 22, 05:13 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR A.J. Green is a player the Bengals plan to have on their roster next season, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Footballguys view: Green has previously stated that he wants to be in Cincinnati if the two sides can reach an agreement. The Bengals want to keep him around, so it seems reasonable to assume something will happen to do just that. The team could always use the franchise tag on Green if a new deal is not reached by the time free agency opens up.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's future with the Bengals is uncertain at this time, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Footballguys view: We just don't see Dalton remaining with the Bengals in 2020. The team would save $17.7 million in salary cap space if they trade or release Dalton. Expect the Bengals to select a quarterback with the No.1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
