  Cowboys | Dak Prescott expected for training camp    Sat May 15, 06:36 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is expected to be a full participant at training camp, according to head coach Mike McCarthy Saturday, May 15. 'Yeah. I have no reason not to think that,' McCarthy said.

  Falcons | Atlanta invites five to try out    Fri May 14, 10:02 PM

Free-agent QB Jake Dolegala (Patriots), DE Eli Ankou (Cowboys), DT Olive Sagapolu (Lions) and LB Curtis Bolton (Texans) are participating in the Atlanta Falcons rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Undrafted free-agent WR C.J. Saunders (Ohio State) is also trying out for the team.

  Bears | Justin Fields to push for starting job    Fri May 14, 09:54 PM

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields said he will do everything he can to earn the starting quarterback job.

Footballguys view: Fields doesn't need time to ramp up to the pro level. He was a standout quarterback for Ohio State and went through his progressions more than any other quarterback in his draft class. Fields will have to beat out Andy Dalton, which may not be that difficult. Not only is Fields a passer with intelligence and upside, he's a dangerous runner if the play breaks down.

  Bengals | Two players sign with Bengals    Fri May 14, 05:06 PM

Free-agent QB Eric Dungey (Browns) and undrafted free-agent TE Cheyenne O'Grady (Arkansas) signed with the Cincinnati Bengals Friday, May 14. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

  Broncos | Denver to have 50-50 QB battle    Fri May 14, 02:43 PM

Denver Broncos QBs Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater will split offseason repetitions '50-50,' head coach Vic Fangio said Friday, May 14.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is going to get a shot to be the starter. Lock was the starter for most of the year in 2020, but he was performing poorly and turning the ball over in most games. We'll see if Lock's offseason work, including film study with Peyton Manning, helps him beat out Bridgewater. The early season schedule for the Broncos is great (Giants, Jaguars, Jets) so the offense could get off to a hot start.

  Packers | Coach: Aaron Rodgers wanted    Fri May 14, 02:17 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been the subject of rampant trade speculation since reports surfaced in late April that he wants out of Green Bay. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Friday, May 14, that there's 'nothing new to add' about the situation. 'We obviously still feel the same way,' LaFleur added. 'We want him back in the worst way. He knows that.'

Footballguys view: The Packers are trying their best to mend fences with Rodgers. There are rumblings that the team is working on a new contract that could make him the highest paid quarterback in the league. Jordan Love is not ready to take over as the team's starter and Rodgers is still playing at an elite level. Expect the Packers to make the strongest push possible to see if Rodgers will want to stay. June 1st is when his cap hit is greatly reduced in a trade, so that's a target date in this situation. Stay on the edge of your seat and stay tuned.

  Buccaneers | Tom Brady to throw next week    Fri May 14, 09:14 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) plans to resume throwing next week after he said he had a 'pretty serious knee surgery' after the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: Brady will get eased back into action with the Buccaneers. In a recent interview, Brady admitted that he spent a lot of time tending to his knee during last year and never fully grasped the Bruce Arians playbook. With a year in the system and a healthy knee, Brady could at least match (or best?) the numbers (40 touchdowns) that made him the no.7 fantasy quarterback in 2020.

  Bears | Kyle Sloter to try out    Thu May 13, 11:32 PM

Free-agent QB Kyle Sloter (Raiders) will participate in the Chicago Bears upcoming rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Sloter has played for the Bears before. He had a tryout with them last summer but didn't land on the practice squad until November. Sloter is just trying to hang on in the league at this point.

  Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence to take part in minicamp    Thu May 13, 06:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) will be a limited participant during the team's upcoming rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: Lawrence had offseason surgery on his non-throwing shoulder but has been passing the ball. Teams don't do much at rookie minicamp anymore, so Lawrence won't get pushed too much. This will mostly be an installation period where Lawrence can deep dive into the playbook.

  Ravens | Baltimore signs seven UDFAs    Thu May 13, 06:08 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Kenji Bahar (Monmouth), OT Adrian Ealy (Oklahoma), DT Xavier Kelly (Arkansas), OT Foster Sarell (Stanford), WR Donte Sylencieux (Graceland), LB Barrington Wade (Iowa) and S Ar'Darius Washington (Texas Christian) signed with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, May 13. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

  Packers | Blake Bortles has deal with Green Bay    Wed May 12, 05:35 PM

Updating a previous story, free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Rams) is signing a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers, according to a source Wednesday, May 12. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bortles has plenty of starting experience and gives them veteran depth behind Jordan Love. Many reporters around the team think Love may not be ready (again) to be the primary backup, and that job could go to Bortles this year. Oh yeah, there's that whole Aaron Rodgers thing too. Stay tuned.

  Packers | Green Bay expected to look at Blake Bortles    Wed May 12, 05:25 PM

  Cowboys | Dallas to take a look at J.T. Barrett    Wed May 12, 03:54 PM

Free-agent QB J.T. Barrett (Steelers) is expected to try out for the Dallas Cowboys during the team's rookie minicamp this weekend, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Footballguys view: Barrett has athleticism and a strong arm as a passer. His accuracy and decision making have kept him from playing up to his potential. At this point, Barrett is a long-shot to make any roster but the Cowboys will give him a look.

  Vikings | Justin Jefferson worked with Kellen Mond    Tue May 11, 06:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kellen Mond worked out with WR Justin Jefferson this offseason before the 2021 NFL Draft, Jefferson said Tuesday, May 11. 'I feel like he's going to be a good player on this team,' Jefferson said. 'He has a very strong arm. ... I think he will be a great addition to this team.'

Footballguys view: Mond is an interesting prospect because of his skill set and his landing spot. He's an athletic quarterback who can work well in a Kubiak/Shanahan system where bootlegs and rollouts are the order of the day. Mond is a "pure sight" thrower who needs to get better with his anticipation as a thrower to thrive in the NFL. He'll develop behind Kirk Cousins and great to see him working out with Jefferson.

  Cowboys | Brady Davis getting a look with Dallas    Tue May 11, 06:09 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Brady Davis (Illinois State) is visiting the Dallas Cowboys for a tryout at rookie minicamp, according to his agents Tuesday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Davis hurt his knee in the last game of the 2019 season and then the 2020 season was cancelled. He's an erratic passer but he does bring athleticism to the field and a rocket arm. He is a long shot to make it past the tryout.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers engaged in talks    Tue May 11, 09:55 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' side has engaged in contract discussions with the Packers to a degree, and the Packers have made a significant long-term offer.

Footballguys view: The Packers are doing what they can to make Rodgers happy. We'll see if this significant offer is what Rodgers wanted in the first place. Earlier reports speculated the team had offered an extension for Rodgers but that wasn't to his liking. The damage may already have been done by now, but Green Bay isn't going to just give up (nor should they). This saga continues until the Packers get him an offer he likes or they trade him away (if they do it would have to be after June 1st).

  Packers | Two QBs to try out at minicamp    Mon May 10, 03:32 PM

Free-agent QB Kurt Benkert (Falcons) and QB Chad Kelly (Colts) will participate in the Green Bay Packers rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Benkert is a tall pocket passer who can spray passes all over the field. Kelly has talent but has never played up to his potential. The arm strength is there, and he's mobile enough to throw on the run or pick up yards with his legs. Both quarterbacks are doing what they can just to stay in the league.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville to add Tim Tebow    Mon May 10, 02:04 PM

Free-agent TE Tim Tebow (Eagles) plans to sign a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Tebow is back in the NFL but Tebow-mania isn't what it used to be. He was a first-round pick (2010) of the Broncos when he was playing quarterback. Tebow led the Broncos to the playoffs in an improbably run in 2011 and won a Wild Card Game against the Steelers. When the Broncos secured Peyton Manning in 2012, Tebow was traded away to the Jets and was soon out of the league. He's back, and reunited with his college coach Urban Meyer, but this time he's playing tight end. Tebow will be a reserve tight end and gadget player for the Jaguars.

  Buccaneers | Blaine Gabbert back with Bucs    Mon May 10, 12:30 PM

Free-agent QB Blaine Gabbert (Buccaneers) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, May 10.

Footballguys view: This move was reported about a week ago...to nobody's surprise. Now, we'll see if Gabbert can win the backup job in 2021. He should be able to but will have to compete with 2021 second-round pick Kyle Trask. The Bucs also have Ryan Griffin on their roster but he's likely pushed off the roster by the pick of Trask.

  Broncos | Denver real possibility for Aaron Rodgers    Mon May 10, 11:24 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could realistically land with the Denver Broncos, who have the second-most salary cap space in football.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are going to make a strong push for Rodgers if/when the Packers decide they won't be able to patch things up between the two sides. After June 1st, the salary cap hit for trading away Rodgers is lowered dramatically so that's a target date for a team like the Broncos to try to make a move. With the Broncos defense and weapons on offense, they could be a Super Bowl contender if they're able to pull off a deal for Rodgers.

  Jaguars | Tim Tebow an option at TE    Mon May 10, 10:07 AM

Former QB Tim Tebow is an option as a backup tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Tebow played for Urban Meyer during his college days at Florida. He could join the Jaguars to give them depth at the tight end position and he could even get some gadget plays near the end zone. We can't imagine much fantasy value coming from the move to add Tebow.

  Bears | Justin Fields working out with teammate    Sun May 9, 05:44 PM

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields worked out with WR Marquise Goodwin earlier this week.

Footballguys view: The rookie quarterback is already getting to work. There were erroneous reports before the draft suggesting that Fields as a "last guy in, first guy out" type of quarterback but those rumblings were always hogwash. The Bears moved up in the 2021 NFL draft to get Fields, and he reminds some in the scouting community of Dak Prescott when he came out of Mississippi State years ago. The rookie will compete with Andy Dalton for the starting job this season.

  Jets | Zach Wilson plans to earn QB job    Sun May 9, 02:01 PM

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson said he does not expect the Jets to hand him the starting quarterback job, and he plans to earn the job during offseason workouts and training camp.

Footballguys view: That's a good mindset to have but we (and everyone else) would be shocked if he didn't start immediately as a rookie. The Jets have cleared the way for Wilson to be the starter from day one. They have no experience in strong-armed, second-year pro James Morgan (fourth-round pick in 2020) and veteran Mike White behind him on the depth chart. Wilson should be the guy from the jump and from a fantasy perspective there is QB2 upside because of his rushing ability. He has a current ADP of QB21 (12.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Kevin Thomson to try out    Sun May 9, 12:04 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Kevin Thomson (Sacramento State) is scheduled to participate in the Carolina Panthers rookie minicamp next week on a tryout basis, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Thomson could have stayed in college with Washington for what would have been his eighth season of eligibility. That is not a typo. Originally starting his college career at UNLV in 2014, Thomson was hurt and transferred to Sacramento State where he became an FCS All-American. He then transferred to Washington where he competed for playing time but another injury knocked him out of the final four games of the year. For those keeping score at home, that's six seasons, five coaching staffs and three universities. Thomson is a long-shot, dual-threat quarterback but he certainly did not give up on his dream of playing in the NFL.

  Cowboys | Jeff Driskel not an option yet    Fri May 7, 05:34 PM

Free-agent QB Jeff Driskel (Broncos) will not be signed by the Dallas Cowboys at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are just updating their emergency list. They may sign Driskel at some point this offseason to be a camp arm and to compete for a backup job. Dak Prescott is their starter but behind him they don't have much experience with guys like Ben DiNucci, Garrett Gilbert and Cooper Rush.

  Cowboys | Jeff Driskel visits    Fri May 7, 04:04 PM

Free-agent QB Jeff Driskel (Broncos) recently met with the Dallas Cowboys, and there is a strong chance that he signs with the team, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Driskel didn't do much with the Broncos last year. He was brought in to push Drew Lock and help teach him the ropes and Lock was regularly one of the worst quarterbacks in the league. The veteran has experience but isn't a great choice if he has to start.

  Eagles | Stage clear for Jalen Hurts    Fri May 7, 01:45 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts enters his second season as the team's No. 1 quarterback, and general manager Howie Roseman is eager to see what he does with the opportunity. 'Certainly you're judging him off of four NFL starts, in a tough situation with all the injuries that we had,' Roseman said during a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'We want to see him grab the job and kind of run with it, and see what you do over a period of time.'

Footballguys view: The Eagles are turning over the reins of the offense to Hurts. He's flashed ability as a starter but needs to further develop as a passer. The weapons around him have been improved and we'll see if he takes that next step. Hurts has QB1 potential for Fantasy GMs because of his rushing ability and potential to take that next step as a quarterback. His current ADP is QB11 (7.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow has to get rid of ball    Fri May 7, 10:06 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow was third-to-last in the league when he held the ball more than four seconds, among quarterbacks that threw at least 200 passes last season. Through the end of Week 10 - Burrow's last complete game - he ranked fourth among qualifying passers in expected completion percentage on throws under four seconds, according to NFL Next Gen.

Footballguys view: Burrow was known for getting rid of the ball quickly in college. He'll get it at the pro level and needs to get there ASAP. The Bengals didn't take a tackle like Penei Sewell in the first round and instead opted for Burrow's college teammate WR Ja'Marr Chase. We'll see if improved weapons - and a target he had great chemistry with - help Burrow get rid of the ball faster in 2021.

  Titans | Brady White to take part in minicamp    Thu May 6, 03:33 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Brady White (Memphis) will participate in the Tennessee Titans rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to a source.

Footballguys view: White did not get an offer as an undrafted free agent, but he'll try to impress as a tryout player with the Titans. He started his college career at Arizona State and transferred to Memphis where he flourished. White filled the air with footballs in college and is not afraid to challenge a defense. We'll see if he can impress during his tryout.

  Bills | Buffalo to take a look at Zach Smith    Thu May 6, 03:30 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Zach Smith (Tulsa) will participate in the Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Smith is a camp arm for the Bills. They have Josh Allen as their starter and Mitchell Trubisky as his primary backup. Behind those two, the Bills have Jake Fromm and Davis Webb on the roster. Smith didn't post great numbers in college and is a long shot to get past this tryout.

  Buccaneers | Blaine Gabbert back in Tampa    Wed May 5, 06:30 PM

Free-agent QB Blaine Gabbert (Buccaneers) is re-signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a one-year, $2.5 million contract, according to a source Wednesday, May 5.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Now, we'll see if Gabbert can win the backup job in 2021. He should be able to but will have to compete with 2021 second-round pick Kyle Trask. The Bucs also have Ryan Griffin on their roster but he's likely pushed off the roster by the pick of Trask.

  Dolphins | Jaylen Waddle comfortable with Tua Tagovailoa    Tue May 4, 09:38 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 74 percent of his passes, averaged 16.6 yards per completion and compiled a 137.9 passer rating when he targeted Jaylen Waddle at the University of Alabama, per Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Waddle can get the most out of Tagovailoa. As a rookie in 2020, Tagovailoa flashed a bit but generally struggled a a passer. Rather than give up on him, the Dolphins know they need better weapons around him and that's why they added Waddle in the 2021 NFL draft. Waddle can fly down the field and takes the top off the defense. Expect his chemistry with Tagovailoa to pick up where they left off.

  Broncos | Jeff Driskel let go    Mon May 3, 04:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel was released Monday, May 3, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Teddy Bridgewater is there to back up Drew Lock (for now). Those two will split reps 50/50 for the starting position over the offseason. Driskel was supposed to push Lock last year but he never did that and didn't impress when he did make it onto the field.

  Bills | Josh Allen's option picked up    Mon May 3, 11:32 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen's fifth-year option for 2022 was exercised Monday, May 3.

Footballguys view: Allen has flourished in the NFL and is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. He's mobile, has a rocket arm and has become much more nuanced as a passer (thanks Stefon Diggs!). The Bills will be working on a new contract for Allen that makes him among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL.

  Broncos | Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater to share snaps    Sun May 2, 01:38 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock and QB Teddy Bridgewater will evenly share the snaps during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are going to have a training camp competition to see who is going to be the starter. Neither Lock or Bridgewater are exciting options for the Broncos, but this team wants to win with swarming defense and a strong rushing attack. The one who turns the ball over the least likely wins the job.

  Buccaneers | Blaine Gabbert may return    Sat May 1, 08:51 PM

Free-agent QB Blaine Gabbert (Buccaneers) is a player head coach Bruce Arians would like to re-sign this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers added Kyle Trask (Florida) in the 2021 NFL draft but he's a developmental player who should not be trusted as a direct backup to Tom Brady just yet. Adding Gabbert would give the Buccaneers the veteran presence they need behind Brady and allow them to bring Trask along as a third-string option.

Undrafted free-agent QB Feleipe Franks (Arkansas) agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, May 1, according to his agents. Terms of the contract weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Franks is an athletic quarterback who can work the short-to-intermediate game. He's got good size and is known as a teachable prospect. We'll see what kind of development he can have as a passer (mainly needs to speed up his clock) in Atlanta.

  Eagles | Jamie Newman signing with Philly    Sat May 1, 07:09 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Jamie Newman (Wake Forest) agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Newman was an interesting player at Wake Forest and was supposed to play at Georgia in 2020 before opting out of the season. He's got an athletic profile and can throw with good touch when his mechanics are clean. He's a project, but one worth keeping an eye on in super deep dynasty formats.

  49ers | Trey Lance getting straight to work    Sat May 1, 06:06 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance is meeting with quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello to exchange some playbook material Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Lance has a lot to work on, but his upside might be greater than anybody in the 2021 NFL draft. He'll work as a reserve behind Jimmy Garoppolo while he gets up to speed in the NFL. Some think Lance may take a year at least to develop, but we think his rushing ability and high football intelligence could make him a starter sooner rather than later.

  Colts | Sam Ehlinger an option for Indianapolis    Sat May 1, 05:14 PM

Texas QB Sam Ehlinger was selected in the sixth round (218th pick) of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Ehlinger was a leader for the Longhorns in college, winning with mobility and good decision making as a passer. He's a "pure sight" thrower similar to what Jalen Hurts was in college, so Ehlinger needs to work on his anticipation as a passer and throwing guys open.

Notre Dame QB Ian Book on Saturday, May 1, was selected in the fourth round (133rd overall pick) by the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Draft.

Stanford QB Davis Mills was selected by the Houston Texans with the 67th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
