Report: Martavis could be reinstated by camp

07 February 2019

NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reports suspended WR Martavis Bryant could be reinstated before the start of training camp. Pelissero reports the same is true for Josh Gordon, something Ian Rapoport hinted at on Super Bowl Sunday. Per Pelissero, the NFLPA could have the ball moving on reinstatement by May. All of this is contingent on Bryant and Gordon having no more slip ups.

Bucs sign Danish kicker from German League

07 February 2019

Bucs signed K Phillip Andersen. Danish, Andersen arrives via the German Football League's Berlin Eagles. Andersen impressed the Bucs with a workout during Senior Bowl week. He is currently the only kicker on the Bucs' 90-man roster. It's an interesting story, though one that is unlikely to end with Andersen securing 2019 kicking duties. That being said, coach Bruce Arians has always been open to outside-the-box developments. Andersen's whole story can be found at the li ...

Bob Stoops agrees to run Dallas' XFL team

07 February 2019

Ex-Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has agreed to be the head coach and general manager of the XFL's Dallas franchise. In a word — what? 58-year-old Stoops, who stepped down after 18 seasons at Oklahoma in June 2017, resisted NFL overtures for two decades. For him to make his comeback in Vince McMahon's revived renegade league is downright bizarre. Perhaps Stoops views it as a way to get back on the NFL radar, though there are surely other ways he could have done that. He mu ...

Kyler Murray agrees to attend NFL Combine

07 February 2019

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray will attend this month's NFL Combine. It's the latest gambit in Murray's chess match with the Oakland A's, though he's also surely actually interested in seeing how he tests as he tries to decide which sport to play. He is one of a whopping 338 players who will be in Indy. The full list can be found at the link below.

PIT considering transition tag to trade Bell?

07 February 2019

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports the Steelers are considering using the transition tag on Le'Veon Bell in an effort to trade him. To be frank, this line of thought does not make much sense. Bell would first have to sign the transition tag for any trade to be completed, locking him into another one-year deal at likely less money than the one he walked away from last season. He could sign a long-term deal with his new team, but that would require somethin ...

Chiefs GM: 'Excited' to keep Dee Ford for '19

07 February 2019

Speaking Thursday, Chiefs GM Brett Veach said the team fully expects to retain impending free agent Dee Ford for 2019. "We’re excited to bring him back," was Veach's exact quote. It's unclear how serious the sides are about a long-term extension, but Ford himself has already said he would not mind playing under the franchise tag. It will be applied absent a new deal.

Cam's shoulder less damaged than expected

07 February 2019

Cam Newton's surgery revealed his shoulder was not as damaged as doctors feared. Newton has a new video blog series. One of the videos is in the aftermath of his January operation, and the doctor tells Newton that the "cartilage damage was not as extensive as we'd feared." The operation was to search for damage to Newton's labrum and rotator cuff. Speaking a week ago, coach Ron Rivera said Newton had already made "marked improvement." He should be fu ...

Jags will make 'some sort of play' for Foles

07 February 2019

The Athletic's Daniel Popper believes the Jaguars will make "some sort of play" for Nick Foles. Frankly, it would be a shock if the Jaguars were not heavily involved in the Foles sweepstakes. As Popper notes, the majority of Jacksonville's defense will return next season, they can create enough cap space with just a couple cuts, and they have former Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo at offensive coordinator. Anything can happen if Foles makes it to the open mark ...

Marquand Manuel linked with Bengals DC job

07 February 2019

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports ex-Falcons DC Marquand Manuel is a candidate for the same job with the Bengals. Manuel was fired when the Falcons cleaned house following the season, but Atlanta's struggles on defense in 2018 had more to do with injuries than the coordinator. Manuel would be a solid, experienced hire for an organization which has already watched Dom Capers and Jack Del Rio pass on the job. Pelissero also mentions Texas A&M DC Mike Elko, Florida DC To ...

Saints DT Onyemata cited for pot possession

07 February 2019

Saints DT David Onyemata was issued a misdemeanor citation for possession of marijuana. According to The Advocate, Onyemata's apartment was raided on January 29 after police received a tip saying "a quantity of marijuana products" were on the property. Police reportedly found marijuana, cannabis oil, marijuana edibles, and hemp powder during the raid. A fourth-round pick in 2016, Onyemata has become an important piece of the Saints' defensive line rotation. He ...

Dom Capers turns down Bengals DC opening

06 February 2019

Ex-Packers DC Dom Capers turned down an offer to become the Bengals' defensive coordinator. Jack Del Rio did the same, for unknown reasons, although both candidates were ex-NFL head coaches with longtime track records proposed to serve under Zac Taylor, who turns 36 later this offseason. Neither Capers nor Del Rio would've been an especially inspiring hire, anyway.

Lindsay still in arm cast, won't discuss OTAs

06 February 2019

The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala reports Phillip Lindsay said he's "going with the flow of things" leading up to organized team activities. Lindsay underwent wrist surgery at the end of the year and projects for 4-6 months of recovery. Still currently in a cast, it's unclear whether or not he'll be ready to fully participate in Denver's offseason workouts beginning mid-May. Lindsay himself mulled on the subject but didn't want to go into it. Even if he misses OTA ...

Giants won't exercise J-Stewart's 2019 option

06 February 2019

The Athletic's Dan Duggan reports the Giants won't exercise Jonathan Stewart's option for 2019. The writing has been on the wall for the Giants to part ways with Stewart following his disastrous career-low campaign. Stewart essentially robbed the team of $2.95 million guaranteed for a laughable six carries and 17 yards (2.83 YPC). Rather than paying $2.77 million to keep dead weight on the roster for another season, New York will actually gain $250,000 in cap credit for ...

Bucs expected to have interest in Matt Bryant

06 February 2019

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports the Bucs "will have interest" in free agent K Matt Bryant. Bryant is just waiting for his formal release after announcing on Wednesday that the Falcons were cutting him. New Bucs STs coordinator Keith Armstrong was Bryant's special teams coach in Atlanta for the entirety of his 10 seasons with the Falcons. Bryant kicked for the Bucs from 2005-2008. The Bucs have long been looking for a steadying presence at kicker. ...

NFL will 'look into' Antonio Brown incident

06 February 2019

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league will "look into" the Antonio Brown domestic incident from January. Miami, Fla. radio host Andy Slater obtained a copy of the incident report from police, shedding a bit more light on the situation. The mother of Brown's daughter went to AB's home in Hollywood, Fla. and tried to collect money for reimbursement of a haircut for the child. Brown allegedly refused and ended up two-hand pushing the woman to the ground. ...

Guice (knee) running at full speed in video

06 February 2019

Derrius Guice (knee) posted a video of himself running at full speed in a straight line on Wednesday. This is our first update on Guice since mid-December when it was revealed Guice needed three additional surgeries for a torn ACL suffered last preseason. The additional operations obviously put a big cloud over his 2019 prospects, but the 21-year-old seems to be progressing in his recovery. The clip doesn't show Guice making any cuts on the knee. This is a big situat ...

Everson Griffen a release candidate for Vikes

06 February 2019

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Ben Goessling considers Vikings DE Everson Griffen a candidate for release this offseason. Griffen is now 31 and coming off a year where he battled mental health issues and had to leave the team for a period of time. When he was on the field, Griffen notched just 5.5 sacks across 11 games. That came after Griffen had 43.5 takedowns of quarterbacks the previous four seasons. Due a $10.9 million salary in 2019, the Vikings can save $10.7 ...

Falcons ax 43-year-old longtime K Matt Bryant

06 February 2019

Falcons released K Matt Bryant. Bryant will turn 44 in May and has already said he plans to continue his playing career. Bryant was scheduled to make a $2.45 million salary and $1.05 million in roster bonuses in 2019, so the Falcons are wiping that off the books. Bryant missed three games in 2018 but remained one of the most trusty kickers when on the field, sinking 20-of-21 field goals and 33-of-35 PATs.

Carr's $19.9M salary becomes guaranteed Wed.

06 February 2019

Derek Carr's $19.9 million base salary for 2019 becomes fully guaranteed on Wednesday at 4 PM ET. That plus a $100K workout bonus gives Carr a guaranteed $20 million this year. Carr was not good in coach Jon Gruden's first year on the job. Carr did complete a career-best 68.9% of his passes and topped 4,000 yards for the first time, but he threw just 19 touchdowns and absorbed 51 sacks after his previous-most taken was 31 in 2015. Carr is just brutal under pressure a ...

Dolphins officially name Chad O'Shea new OC

06 February 2019

Dolphins hired Patriots WRs coach Chad O'Shea as offensive coordinator. 46-year-old O'Shea coached New England's wideouts the previous 10 years and has never called plays. He and new Miami coach Brian Flores have been position coaches together under Bill Belichick for a decade and will now be tasked with trying to overthrow the New England dynasty. O'Shea doesn't have a whole lot to work with on paper, with Ryan Tannehill expected to be released at quarterback, but Ke ...
