  • Samaje Perine Figures To Have Significant Role

    Headshot for Samaje Perine

    Regardless of whether Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams (knee) is ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season, Samaje Perine figures to have a significant role in the team's offense in his first year in Denver. It may not be the most sizable workload he's had in his career -- he had a career-high 175 carries for 603 yards in his rookie year with Washington -- but it should be a decent role nonetheless. "When we signed Samaje, this is a guy that gave us flexibility," head coach Sean Payton said. "We signed him because we knew he was durable and reliable. We felt like we got another solid runner who's built in a strong way." The 27-year-old averaged 4.4 yards per carry and also caught 76 passes in the last three seasons with the Bengals, so he'll be a necessary handcuff for those that draft Williams in 2023.

  • Preston Williams Cut By Panthers

    Headshot for Preston Williams

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Preston Williams has been released by the organization. The 26-year-old put together a fairly strong rookie campaign in 2019. Since then, Williams has struggled to make the same kind of impact in the league. He only played in one game with the Panthers last season. He has 56 receptions, 787 yards, and seven touchdowns in 25 games over the course of four seasons. Williams should be able to catch on elsewhere as a depth option.

  • Jacob Eason Released By Panthers

    Headshot for Jacob Eason

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Jacob Eason has been released by the organization on Thursday. The former fourth round pick has seen very little NFL action since being drafted in 2020 by the Indianapolis Colts. The 25-year-old has completed 5-of-10 passing attempts for 84 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions in two career appearances. Possibly, Eason will catch on as a second string or more than likely a third string with another organization. He's still young enough to turn around his career, but he needs to find the right fit for himself.

  • Kylen Granson Could Be Cut-Candidate

    Headshot for Kylen Granson

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Kylen Granson isn't a lock for the 53-man roster, according to Zac Keefer of The Athletic. The former fourth round pick didn't have a ton of success last season. He hauled in 31 receptions for 302 yards in 13 games (four starts) for the Colts this past season. To be fair, Granson hauled in 31 of his 40 total targets, so he appears to be a reliable pass-catcher, but didn't do much after making the catch. It sounds like Granson will have to earn his spot on the roster coming into camp. He'll compete with Mo Alie-Cox, Jelani Woods, and recently drafted Will Mallory for a spot on the roster this upcoming season.

  • Jerome Ford Expected To Have Increased Role

    Headshot for Jerome Ford

    Cleveland Browns running back Jerome Ford is expected to take on the No. 2 role this upcoming season. The departure of Kareem Hunt and D'Ernest Johnson have left the Browns without many options in the backfield. That being said, it appears the Browns are ready to see what they have in Ford. He'll likely handle a decent amount of the pass-catching in the backfield. However, Nick Chubb is likely to see a majority of the workload with the Browns being shorthanded. Ford only had 14 offensive snaps last season, so it's hard to imagine him being ready to take on the No. 2 role. It'll be interesting to see what happens during training camp.

  • Steelers Give Mitch Trubisky A Two-Year Extension

    Headshot for Mitchell Trubisky

    The Pittsburgh Steelers and quarterback Mitch Trubisky agreed to an undisclosed two-year contract extension on Thursday that also lowers his salary cap number for the 2023 season -- it was previously at $10 million. Trubisky began last season as the starter under center for the Steelers, but he finished the year as the backup to Kenny Pickett. In seven games in 2022, the 28-year-old Trubisky completed 65 percent of his passes for 1,252 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. Barring injury by Pickett in 2023, Trubisky will serve as Pittsburgh's backup signal-caller, giving him virtually no fantasy appeal. The former first-round pick by the Chicago Bears has not lived up to expectations in his NFL career.

  • David Ojabo Past His Achilles Injury

    Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker David Ojabo (Achilles) is fully healthy and is determined to make the impact that he couldn't during his rookie season after suffering a torn Achilles last March at Michigan's Pro Day. Ojabo saw significant action in just one game, the regular season finale, in 2022. His upper body is noticeably bigger this offseason, and he said he gained "a solid five to 10 pounds of muscle." "Honestly I'm tired of hearing about it," Ojabo said. "It's in my past, I've grown from it. It's made me stronger. I'm ready to move on from it. I'm 110%. I honestly feel better. I feel more explosive. I'm excited." The 23-year-old could have been a first-rounder if not for his injury, and he should have every opportunity to earn a big role for the Ravens D in 2023.

  • Texans Sign Byron Cowart

    The Houston Texans signed veteran free-agent defensive tackle Byron Cowart to an undisclosed deal on Thursday, according to a source. Cowart signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in March but was released on May 10. The 26-year-old quickly latches on with the Texans. He spent the 2022 season with the Indianapolis Colts, playing in 17 games (zero starts) and recording only 12 tackles (four solo). In three NFL seasons, Cowart has 41 tackles (19 solo), a sack, five tackles for loss and one pass defensed in 36 games (14 starts). He was originally a fifth-round selection in 2019 by the New England Patriots out of Maryland. At best, Cowart will have a rotational role on Houston's defensive line if he makes the team.

    Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dayo Odeyingbo (Achilles) is up to 285 pounds right now after putting on 11 pounds of muscle, and he said he feels that his Achilles is getting stronger this offseason and it's getting back to where it's supposed to be. The 23-year-old is now two years removed from tearing his Achilles in the lead-up to the 2021 NFL draft. He played in 10 games in his rookie season and all 17 (four starts) last year, recording 31 tackles (18 solo), five sacks, five tackles for loss and 11 QB hits. Odeyingbo will be a key pass-rusher for the Colts in 2023, alongside Kwity Paye and Samson Ebukam, and he could even be moved inside at times.

  • Steelers Sign Luq Barcoo

    The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free-agent cornerback Luq Barcoo to an undisclosed one-year deal on Wednesday. Barcoo played for the San Antonio Brahmas in the XFL this spring and finished the season with 31 tackles, one sack and one interceptions. He was initially signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020 as an undrafted free agent. The 24-year-old played in three games (one start) that year in Jacksonville and recorded 10 tackles (seven solo). Barcoo has also spent time with the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, but he didn't play in any NFL games with them. He had a breakout senior season at San Diego State, when he led the NCAA with nine interceptions.

  • Jaylon Moore Placed On Injured Reserve

    The Jacksonville Jaguars placed wide receiver Jaylon Moore (undisclosed) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday and signed linebacker Willie Taylor III in a corresponding move. It looks like Moore will miss all of the 2023 season after he signed a Reserve/Futures contract with the team following last year. The 25-year-old pass-catcher has bounced around with a few teams after going undrafted in 2020, and he hasn't played in an NFL game to this point. Taylor played in the XFL for the Arlington Renegades this spring and had 11 tackles and four sacks. He played collegiately at Washington State from 2017-21 before transferring to Eastern Kentucky for 2022.

  • Vikings Sign Zach Ojile, Sam Schlueter

    The Minnesota Vikings signed fullback Zach Ojile and offensive lineman Sam Schlueter to undisclosed deals this week after both players took part in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Both players are Minnesota natives, with Ojile playing at University of Minnesota - Duluth, while Schlueter played at the University of Minnesota. Ojile stands at 6-foot-2 and 238 pounds, and he had 25 catches for 289 yards and five touchdowns last year as a tight end. He also carried the ball 12 times for 53 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Ojile will join fullback C.J. Ham on the Vikings roster. Schlueter played both right and left tackle in college.

    New York Jets defensive end Carl Lawson agreed to a restructured contract on Thursday, according to a source. Lawson was due a non-guaranteed $15 million this year, but he'll now be due a base value of $9 million, with $8 million of it guaranteed. Lawson will have $3 million more available in incentives. The restructure creates $12.7 million in salary cap space in 2023 for the Jets. The 27-year-old is entering his second year for Gang Green in 2023 after he had 33 tackles (18 solo), seven sacks, nine tackles for loss, 24 QB hits and a fumble recovery in 17 regular season games in 2022. Lawson should once again have a pretty prominent pass-rushing role for the Jets' improved defense this year.

  • Rams Sign Tyler Hudson, Jaiden Woodbey

    The St. Louis Rams signed undrafted rookie wide receiver Tyler Hudson and safety Jaiden Woodbey to undisclosed deals on Wednesday. The Rams are bringing Hudson back after waiving him earlier in the week. At the University of Louisville last year, he caught 69 passes for 1,034 yards and two touchdowns. Hudson will attempt to impress the coaching staff at training camp this summer to stick around on the roster. Woodbey also returns to the Rams after being waived this week. Woodbey was a versatile safety at Boston College who totaled 103 tackles, two passes defensed and an interception in his last two collegiate seasons.

  • Samori Toure, Jayden Reed To Battle For No. 3 Job

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Barring the addition of a veteran receiver, Green Bay Packers wide receivers Samori Toure and rookie Jayden Reed are expected to battle for the No. 3 job behind Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, beginning in organized team activities. Toure was only targeted 10 times in 2022, catching five of them for 82 yards and a touchdown. Toure will have an opportunity, but Reed was taken in the second round of the draft for a reason, with his speed, hands and route-running abilities standing out at Michigan State. The rookie is a candidate to fill the slot role after Randall Cobb's departure. Reed is undersized at 5-foot-11, 187 pounds, but his skills are intriguing for those looking to take a late flier in dynasty/keeper leagues.

  • Matt Ryan Unlikely To Play Again

    Headshot for Matt Ryan

    Free-agent quarterback Matt Ryan, who announced he's joining the broadcast booth for the 2023 season, said it's unlikely that he'll play in the NFL again. "All the stars would have to [align]. I've just learned in the 15 years I've played, to not shut any doors," Ryan said. The former MVP made it clear he wasn't retiring earlier this week, but the chances of him joining another NFL team at this point are slim to none. He earned four Pro Bowl selections in his 14 years with the Atlanta Falcons and led his team to one Super Bowl appearance. As a 38-year-old for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022, Ryan had a career-low 14 touchdowns in 12 games and was eventually benched. If he were to officially retire, the Colts could come after some of the $12 million guaranteed they owe him after cutting him.

  • Will The Chargers Sign Austin Ekeler To A Contract Extension? Could Ekeler Hold Out? 2023 NFL Outlook

    Headshot for Austin Ekeler

    Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler has been one of the most productive "real life" players at the position over the past few seasons and has been a fantasy football superstar.However, he is past the running back age apex of 24 or 25, so the team is apparently hesitant to rework his contract.How has Ekeler played during his career and will he receive a contract extension? If not, could he hold out or be traded? Let's dive in. Austin Ekeler Career ReviewEkeler shared time with Melvin Gordon early in his career but carved out a nice passing game role with Philip Rivers. That said, he didn't score more than 11 touchdowns in any of his first four seasons in the NFL.However, his last two campaigns have been his best. In 2021 and 2022, the Western State product totaled 1,826 rushing yards and 25 rushing touchdowns on 410 carries -; and 1,369 receiving yards for 13 receiving touchdowns on 177 receptions. His 38 total touchdowns over that span are the most in the NFL by a wide margin. he hasn't been named to a Pro Bowl, but he's arguably been the best all-purpose running back in the league during his fifth and sixth seasons as a pro. Could Ekeler Hold Out During the 2023 Season?Ekeler wasn't present for the start of the team's voluntary offseason workouts on Monday. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone really, as there hasn't been any progress made on contract extension talks between Ekeler and the Chargers since the 28-year-old requested and received permission to seek a trade in March. As he heads into the final year of his four-year deal, Ekeler could be a holdout candidate this summer. He has clearly outplayed his contract, but the Bolts may be unwilling to give him what he wants. could result in a holdout during the early part of the season or an eventual trade. While he's not expected to be traded at this time, we shouldn't rule anything out at this point in the process. If he is traded, the Chargers have Joshua Kelley,Isaiah Spiller,andLarry Rountree III in the backfield, and they'd likely form a frustrating committee for fantasy managers. That said, the team would likely add a veteran or two to its backfield.<span style="font-weight: 400">

  • Vikings Sign Jordan Addison To Rookie Deal

    Headshot for Jordan Addison

    The Minnesota Vikings signed first-round wide receiver Jordan Addison, who was the 23rd overall pick of this year's NFL draft, to his four-year rookie deal on Wednesday, according to a source. Durability could be an issue for the 21-year-old pass-catcher at the next level, as he stands at just 5-foot-11, 173 pounds, but he was extremely productive at Pittsburgh and UCLA in college. If he's going to be effective in the NFL, he'll need to gain plenty of separation from his defenders and pick up yards after the catch. Addison is joining a potent Vikings passing attack and he should start immediately in three-receiver sets, but the Vikes also have plenty of mouths to feed on offense, beginning with All-Pro wideout Justin Jefferson.

  • Chiefs Prioritizing New Deal For Chris Jones

    Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach is focused on signing defensive tackle Chris Jones to a new deal. "That's on the list of things to do," commented Veach while speaking to the media after the NFL Draft. "Those things usually take a little bit of time here, so we have a little bit of a runway now until the start of training camp to hopefully get something done." Jones is coming off a monster 2022-23 campaign, ending the regular season with 44 total tackles, 15.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles, meaning he will likely become one of the highest-paid players in the league at the position. Nevertheless, regardless of what happens with contract negotiations, the 28-year-old should remain a top IDP option.

  • Michael Gallup Believes Knee Injury Is Behind Him

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup stated he was bothered by lingering left knee soreness during the 2022-23 campaign. Fortunately, the wideout reported he's feeling good during a radio interview. "My knee was feeling sore. Last year at this time, I couldn't walk. It's different now. I feel springy again." The 27-year-old suffered a torn left ACL during a meeting with the Arizona Cardinals in January 2022 and missed three games last season. Nevertheless, Gallup has shown flashes of promise in the past, including amassing 1,107 receiving yards in 2019. As a result, he could easily surpass his ADP expectation, even with competition for Dak Prescott's attention. But Gallup will need to stay healthy, which will continue to be a concern for fantasy managers.

  • A.J. Brown Committed To Improving

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown is focused this offseason on getting better. "There's a lot I can Improve on," commented Brown during an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I want to be a complete receiver. But I'm just trying to be a well-rounded receiver and do it all. The sky is the limit." Brown finished last season with 88 catches for 1,496 yards, both career highs. He also had 11 touchdowns. The 25-year-old appears to have a solid working relationship with quarterback Jalen Hurts, so the former Titan has a chance of finishing the 2023-24 campaign as the league's top fantasy wideout, or at least one of them.

  • Dalvin Cook May Be Released Before Traded

    According to Mike Florio, the Vikings haven't found a trade partner for running back Dalvin Cook. While multiple clubs are likely interested in the Pro Bowler, nobody seems eager to take on his remaining contract. It appears Minnesota is set on getting Cook off the roster, so releasing him may be inevitable. If that occurs, several teams can swoop in and offer a deal better suited for their financial situation. Without question, the 27-year-old has been a potent fantasy option since entering the league. However, his fantasy outlook will hinge on where he ends up. Cook's inability to stay healthy has also been an issue over the years.

  • Multiple Teams Believe Ezekiel Elliott Has Lost A Step

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    Long-time Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was released by the team after his 2022 campaign, and the market for the 27-year-old Ohio State product is reportedly slim. Elliott rushed 231 times for 876 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for Dallas, but his 3.8 yards per carry marked a career low through his first seven NFL seasons. Teammate Tony Pollard rushed for 1,007 yards and averaged 5.2 yards per carry and was clearly the more efficient and explosive Cowboys' running back. According to ESPN's Kimberly A. Martin, "The market that Zeke wants just may not be there," and multiple franchises believe Elliott's best days are behind him. He may be on a roster next season, but he'll likely have to accept a cheap, one-year deal and will be a committee and short-yardage back moving forward.

  • Devon Achane Is Gaining Weight Ahead Of Rookie Season

    Headshot for Devon Achane

    Miami Dolphins running back Devon Achane weighed just 188 pounds at the 2023 NFL Combine but has reportedly already gotten up to 192 pounds since being drafted in the third round. While four pounds may not seem like a big deal, every bit could help his chances to gain a significant workload in his rookie season. "I always knew that I could gain weight," said Achane. "I just didn't have the full offseason to gain weight because obviously, I was doing track. This is my first year not doing track, so I actually had the whole offseason to work out and be in football shape. So it kind of helped me with that." That said, he could pack on a few more pounds before his career begins. He is set to join a backfield with Jeff Wilson Jr. and Raheem Mostert, who have lengthy injury histories collectively, so Achane will serve as at least a solid bench stash in 2023.

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks struggled with conditioning and had trouble breathing in last summer's offseason workouts, but the second-year man said "I feel great. I'm running fast, not having any problems with breathing. Really just having fun, man. I am in a good place, state of mind, and I am just thankful." The Arkansas product caught 33 passes for 444 yards and one touchdown last season but looks to take a big step forward as the team's No. 1 wide receiver in 2023. Burks was bitten by the injury bug in his rookie campaign, missing six games due to turf toe and a concussion. With limited target competition, Burks should see a high target share, but the overall ceiling of the Titans' passing offense will likely be low under Ryan Tannehill and potentially Will Levis.

The 27-year-old was originally a fourth-round selection by the Arizona Cardinals in 2019 out of Iowa State, but he never played for Arizona and only saw action in one season (2020) with the Philadelphia Eagles and didn't record a catch on one target in two games. Butler brings size to Pittsburgh's receiving corps at 6-foot-5 and 227 pounds, but he'll strictly be battling for a roster spot at training camp this summer.

At Hawaii, he caught only 10 passes for 70 yards in 2022. It will probably be an uphill battle for Murray to make Houston's final roster out of training camp this summer.

    As a sixth-round pick (No. 187 overall) in this year's NFL draft, New England Patriots wide receiver Kayshon Boutte should enter the league with low expectations, but he won't be a lock to make the team's 53-man roster out of training camp this summer. But Boutte is also a receiver that was the No. 2 receiver recruit in the nation just three years ago and who reached the 100-catch mark faster than any receiver in LSU history. If he can buy into the Patriots' demanding program and recapture the potential he showed years ago, he has the talent to become a legitimate weapon in the team's passing attack. There have been questions about Boutte off the field, and he also didn't test well at the scouting combine. He's one to watch, but fantasy managers in single-year leagues should be ignoring him this fall until he proves something.

  • Davante Adams Has Concerns About Raiders' Offense In 2023

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams reportedly has "reservations" about the direction of the team's offense heading into the 2023 season. Adams went on to state, "We don't see eye-to-eye on what we think is best for us right now." The All-Pro wideout will catch passes from Jimmy Garoppolo in 2023 after catching passes primarily from either Aaron Rodgers or Derek Carr dating back to his college days at Fresno State. Adams proved in 2023 that he can produce All-World numbers away from Rodgers and should continue to post elite fantasy production with Garoppolo. It is likely that Adams' reservations won't translate to issues on the field, although if the Raiders start slowly this upcoming season, he could become a trade candidate.

    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow confirmed on Tuesday that he and the team continue to work on a long-term contract extension after the Bengals unsurprisingly picked up his fifth-year option. "I'm involved. That's in the works," Burrow said. "That's not really something that I like to play out in the media. That's something just the way, I think, they want to do business, I want to do business, we prefer to keep that between us." It sounds as though the 26-year-old may not break the bank in order to leave some money on the table for his teammates that also need extensions, but he's still going to be paid very handsomely when all is said and done. Burrow has become a high-end NFL QB in the last two years, reaching the Super Bowl and then taking his team to the AFC Championship this past January.

In his first two seasons in the NFL in 2020 and 2021, he caught just four of his eight targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns, with all of his production coming in three games (one start) in 2021. Wilkerson will simply be trying to do enough in training camp this summer to stick around in Las Vegas.

  • Justin Herbert Resumes Throwing After Surgery

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (shoulder) was throwing a football during the team's voluntary offseason workouts on Monday after coming off left-shoulder surgery this offseason. Herbert had surgery to fix a torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder but hadn't resumed throwing a ball until Monday. The Chargers will take things slowly with the 25-year-old, but he should be fully ready to go by training camp at the end of July, especially since the surgery wasn't on his throwing shoulder. Herbert finished as the QB8 in fantasy in 2022 with 4,739 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, and he was given a new toy in first-round receiver Quentin Johnston this year. Consider him a midrange QB1 heading into his fourth NFL season.

  • Austin Ekeler Not At Voluntary Workouts

    Headshot for Austin Ekeler

    Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler wasn't present for the start of the team's voluntary offseason workouts on Monday. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone really, as there hasn't been any progress made on contract-extension talks between Ekeler and the Chargers since the 27-year-old requested and received permission to seek a trade in March. As he heads into the final year of his four-year deal, Ekeler could be a holdout candidate this summer. He has clearly outplayed his contract, but the Bolts may be unwilling to give him what he wants. If Ekeler is traded, the Chargers have Joshua Kelley, Isaiah Spiller and Larry Rountree III in the backfield, and they'd likely form a frustrating committee for fantasy managers.

  • Ndamukong Suh Unlikely To Sign Before Training Camp

    Headshot for Ndamukong Suh

    Free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh isn't hanging up his cleats this offseason, but he's also unlikely to sign with a new team before training camp begins this summer. "I have no desire to be in a training camp," Suh said. "I will come in and watch and look and give some advice, but when Week 1 happens, I'll be ready." The 36-year-old is entering his 14th NFL season after spending time with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2022. Suh didn't join the Eagles last year until November, so he clearly is in no rush to sign with a new organization. His best fits could be a return to the Detroit Lions, with the Seattle Seahawks or with the Baltimore Ravens. The five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro is no longer in peak form obviously, but he can still provide plenty of run-stopping support for a contending team.

  • Colts Being Patient With Anthony Richardson

    Headshot for Anthony Richardson

    The Indianapolis Colts are preaching patience with rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson after taking him fourth overall in this year's NFL draft. Head coach Shane Steichen has preached the value of detail-oriented, step-by-step instruction as the young QB learns the team's playbook and navigates a new locker room. The next start he makes will only be the 14th of his career above the high-school level. Richardson is raw, but the Colts have been impressed by his pocket awareness in particular, and he showed off his high-level playmaking abilities during rookie minicamp last weekend. The 20-year-old's athleticism isn't in question, it's his lack of experience, decision-making and accuracy that is suspect, and it could take him some time to get comfortable at the next level.

    Houston Texans rookie edge rusher Will Anderson Jr. will put his hand down in the dirt and line up as a defensive end during the 2023 season. Texans coach DeMeco Ryans confirmed the position switch would be taking place. The No. 3 overall pick played outside linebacker at Alabama, where he made 204 tackles and 34.5 sacks in three years. He led the SEC in sacks in 2021 and 2022 while setting the conference record for sacks in a career. Anderson said, "I'm super excited, just to do anything they need from me for the team." It's not completely new for Anderson; he played defensive end in high school. Anderson retains dual positional eligibility at linebacker and defensive line in Sleeper IDP fantasy football.

  • Mason Rudolph Re-Signs With Pittsburgh Steelers

    The Pittsburgh Steelers resigned quarterback Mason Rudolph to a one-year deal after he did not attract interest in free agency. Rudolph is the Steelers' QB3, behind Kenny Pickett and Mitchell Trubisky. He did not play in any games in 2022. His last start came in Week 9 of 2021 when he completed 30-of-50 pass attempts for 242 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 16-16 tie with the Detroit Lions. In his four-year career, he has completed 236 of 384 pass attempts for 2,366 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. Rudolph adds quarterback depth to a Pittsburgh Steelers team that has some interesting fantasy weapons at wide receiver, running back, and tight end.

    Number one draft pick Bryce Young is splitting the Carolina Panthers' first-team repetitions with Andy Dalton. Panthers coach Frank Reich said that Dalton will start out as the No. 1 quarterback during full-team practices, but he said that Young would also be taking reps with the first team and that he might end up getting more first-team reps in the end. "When he's ready, when it's best for the team, that's when we'll look to make the transition. But when we come back out Monday, Andy will be taking reps with the ones. Bryce will be with the twos. But Bryce isgonna get a lot of reps. He'll likely even get a few more than Andy just as the new guy," Reich said in an interview with The Atlantic.

  • Darnell Wright Signs Rookie Deal, Boosting Justin Fields' Protection

    The Chicago Bears signed their first-round draft pick offensive tackle Darnell Wright to his rookie deal on Monday. The Tennessee Volunteers product, who is 6'6" and 335 pounds, allowed no sacks and just six hurries while taking 507 pass protection snaps his senior year in Knoxville. The Bears are hoping his prowess will result in better protection for Justin Fields, who was one of the most-sacked quarterbacks in the league. Last season, the Bears allowed 58 sacks, the fourth-most. Chicago did rank No. 16 in pass blocking, according to PFF. Some of the sacks Fields took were the result of him holding onto the ball too long. Still, Wright is an upgrade at right tackle, and he should improve the fantasy outlooks of Chicago's offensive weapons.

  • Dalton Kincaid Takes Part In Rookie Minicamp

    Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid (back) didn't do any football workouts or the NFL scouting combine testing in the lead-up to the draft due to the recovery process from a back injury that didn't require surgery, but he took part in Buffalo's rookie minicamp over the weekend. "I feel good," said the first-round draft pick. "Definitely rusty in terms of not being able to do as much as I wanted to the last couple months. But I felt really good out there." The 6-foot-4, 246-pounder has high expectations after being the first tight end taken in an elite class for the position. He has elite hands and is expected to bring a boost to the Bills' passing attack immediately. Rookie tight ends typically don't produce immediately in fantasy, but Kincaid should have a pretty high ceiling sooner than later.

  • Jalin Hyatt Signs Rookie Deal

    New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt signed his four-year rookie deal that is worth $5.625 million on Monday. The Giants took Hyatt in the third round of this year's NFL draft. The 21-year-old speedster from the University of Tennessee injured his hamstring at the scouting combine, but he should be healthy enough to be available for training camp at the end of July. Hyatt has gained some weight recently and should challenge Darius Slayton and Isaiah Hodgins for playing time on the outside immediately in 2023. Still, New York also has wideouts Parris Campbell, Sterling Shepard and Wan'Dale Robinson, so it could be tough for Hyatt to carve out consistent production for fantasy managers in Year 1 in the NFL.

  • Bijan Robinson Being Used "Everywhere"

    Atlanta Falcons rookie running back Bijan Robinson, the eighth overall pick in this year's draft, said he trusts head coach Arthur Smith to use him "the right way" and also that he's being used "everywhere" so far in rookie minicamp. "He uses me everywhere, from receiver to running back," Robinson said of Smith. "He lets me do my abilities and skill set the right way, whether it's catching the ball, running routes, obviously running the football, blocking and doing it all." The 21-year-old is expected to step into a big role immediately, despite the presence of Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson. Robinson has a lot to live up to in his first NFL season, but if he's used the way he's expected to be used, he should return RB1 value in Atlanta's run-heavy offensive attack.

    Former Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver James Washington is signing with the New Orleans Saints on a one-year deal. The Oklahoma State alumni played in just two games last season with Dallas thanks to a preseason foot injury but did catch any passes. In 60 games with the Steelers, he hauled in 114 passes for 1,629 yards and 11 touchdowns. While Washington won't carry much fantasy value immediately, he could be sprung into action if Michael Thomas suffers another injury. Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed, A.T. Perry, and Tre'Quan Smith round out the Saints' wideout room.

  • Tyjae Spears Says He's Fully Healthy

    Tennessee Titans running back Tyjae Spears had plenty of question marks during the pre-draft process about his knee injuries, but he has been a full participant in rookie mini-camp and said "I was out there. I did everything. So, I feel perfectly fine. Nothing wrong with me. I'm healthy." The Tulane product has no ACL in one of his knees and is reportedly dealing with arthritis. However, the 21-year-old still became a third-round pick and is expected to contribute to the Titans' offense early in his career. The 29-year-old Derrick Henry may need a change of pace back to ease some of his workload at this point in his career, so Spears could carve out a role as a third-down back and breather back sharing the backfield with the former 2,000-yard rusher. Spears could see a shortened career due to his knee troubles, but his immediate production should not be a concern.

  • Marcus Peters Visiting Raiders

    Former Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, and Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters is visiting the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday, marking his first free agent visit of the offseason. The 30-year-old missed the entire 2021 season with a torn ACL, but played in 13 games in 2022, recording 47 total tackles, one interception, and six passes defended. Peters is a three-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro and has collected 32 interceptions during his eight-year career. The Raiders secondary struggled last season, allowing the fourth-most total passing yards under defensive coordinator Patrick Graham. Peters' best days are likely behind him, but he could provide depth and a veteran presence for the Silver and Black if he signs with the organization.

  • Kendre Miller Not Expected To Miss Training Camp

    New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen said he doesn't expect rookie running back Kendre Miller (knee) to miss any of training camp in the second half of July. Allen didn't clarify when Miller could get back on the field, but it's a good sign he isn't slated to miss any of the all-important training camp practices. Miller was selected in the third round by New Orleans after a fantastic season with TCU. The 20-year-old rushed for 1,399 yards and 17 touchdowns for the National Champion runner-ups. However, Miller suffered a knee injury in the College Football Playoff semifinals and wasn't able to participate in on-field work during the pre-draft process.

  • Isaiah Wynn Signs One-Year Deal With Dolphins

    Former New England Patriots first-round offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, according to sources. Wynn will add key depth and competition to Miami's offensive line. The 27-year-old missed the end of the 2022 season due to a foot injury, but he's now in Miami and will compete for playing time as he stays in the AFC East division. He'll most likely be competing with Austin Jackson for playing time at right tackle. In his four years with the Patriots, Wynn played in 43 games and made 40 starts.

  • Matt Ryan Joins Broadcast Booth, Says He's Not Retired

    Free-agent quarterback Matt Ryan announced on Twitter that he's joining CBS Sports as an analyst this year, but that he's not retiring from the game. Ryan will be in the broadcast booth in 2023, but he's not closing the book on his NFL career after falling flat for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022. The 37-year-old former MVP completed 67 percent of his passes last year for 3,057 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 12 games before he was benched. It wasn't entirely his fault, though, as the Colts' offensive line didn't give him much of a chance to be successful in the pocket. Even if Ryan does sign with another NFL team down the road, it won't be in anything more than a backup role.

  • Brodric Martin Has A Lot Of Upside

    Detroit Lions rookie defensive tackle Brodric Martin, who was acquired in the third round of this year's NFL draft, has 35-inch arms and a massive 330-pound frame. He was easily the team's biggest lineman on the field during rookie minicamp over the weekend, and his upside as a space-eating nose tackle is clear as day. "There's a lot of upside with the guy," assistant general manager Ray Agnew said. "First of all, he's big, powerful and strong. He's got some technique stuff (to fix), but everything about him is fixable. I think our D-line coach will do a great job of teaching him how to play the game. There's a lot in that body, man. We're excited about him." Martin looks to be a quick study and could be contributing early on for the Lions in 2023.

  • Lions Expect Jack Campbell To Make Immediate Impact

    The Detroit Lions took linebacker Jack Campbell in the first round of this year's NFL draft because they think he'll make an immediate impact in the middle of their defense. Part of the process from now until Campbell's first NFL game in Week 1 will be honing in on the details. He looks the part already as a strong communicator in the heart of the defense, and he's a man among boys in terms of his stature. There aren't too many players with Campbell's size (6-foot-5, 249 pounds) who can move like him at linebacker. While the 22-year-old wasn't often in the opponent's backfield making tackles for loss, his extreme athleticism could make him an IDP tackle machine sooner than later.

  • Sam LaPorta Puts On A Show At Rookie Minicamp

    Detroit Lions rookie tight end Sam LaPorta was the best player on the field on Saturday at the team's rookie minicamp, and he got plenty of looks from quarterback Adrian Martinez. LaPorta was targeted early and often and caught everything that came his way. His versatility stood out. Detroit used him as an in-line tight end but also flexed him out to receiver over the weekend, something he did often at Iowa. LaPorta can hurt teams in a variety of ways, so expect the Lions to continue moving him around. The 22-year-old also showed impressive elusiveness and acceleration on the field. The No. 33 overall pick in this year's draft should be a great fit in this offense, but fantasy managers might want to be patient in terms of his 2023 production.

  • Emmanuel Forbes Works In Slot

    Washington Commanders first-round cornerback Emmanuel Forbes was deployed strictly on the outside in college because of his high-end coverage instincts, but the Commanders typically lined up in the slot during rookie minicamp over the weekend. The spot makes sense for Forbes if the team looks to keep starters Kendall Fuller and Benjamin St-Juste on the boundaries. Forbes should be a starter for Washington in his rookie season in 2023, and he set the collegiate record by returning six of his 14 interceptions back for touchdowns, so he's likely to eventually have appeal as a defensive back in IDP fantasy leagues. But it will be interesting if Forbes stays in the slot, because his 6-foot-1, 173-pound frame doesn't exactly profile well on the inside.

  • Commanders Want To Get Antonio Gibson More Touches

    Headshot for Antonio Gibson

    Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said he'd like to get more touches for fourth-year running back Antonio Gibson this year, and Rivera is intrigued by how the versatile Gibson fits into "what Eric Bieniemy wants to do with the offense." In his third year in D.C. in 2022, Gibson had a career-low 149 carries for 546 yards and three touchdowns, but he added a career-high 46 catches (58 targets) for 353 yards and two more scores in 15 games (six starts). Brian Robinson will continue to be a thorn in Gibson's side on early downs and at the goal line, but Gibson's fantasy ceiling should go up with Bieniemy running the offense and if they indeed give him more touches to do damage in an offense that has the potential to be explosive.

    There have been plenty of rumors that the Minnesota Vikings will trade running back Dalvin Cook this offseason, but ESPN's Jeremy Fowler says there is "not a clear-cut avenue for (Dalvin Cook) to be traded, at least at the moment." The right opportunity to move Cook has yet to manifest itself, but nobody should be surprised at this point if Cook is on the move before the 2023 season. The 27-year-old uncertain future makes his fantasy value this summer very volatile, while Alexander Mattison's becomes much more attractive. Cook had shoulder surgery back in February but is progressing nicely and should be ready for the start of the new season this fall. He's had four straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons, but his uncertain future in Minnesota makes it difficult for fantasy managers to invest.

Now, Moreau has a chance of being ready for the beginning of OTAs, according to head coach Dennis Allen. The Saints and Moreau recently agreed on a three-year, $12 million contract. The expectation is that he'll compete for targets with Juwan Johnson and Taysom Hill. That being said, it's hard to imagine he'll be a TE1 heading into next season. His usage will likely decrease with the move to New Orleans. Regardless, it's fantastic to see that Moreau is going to be on a football field again.

    New England Patriots quarterback Malik Cunningham has a clear path to the 53-man roster, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. The Louisville product signed with the Pats after going undrafted during the 2023 draft. He landed himself 200K in guaranteed money, which is quite a bit for an undrafted player. Cunningham is expected to compete with Trace McSorley during camp for the No. 3 spot on the roster. The Patriots already have Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe, but usually carry three quarterbacks. Cunningham had over 3,000 rushing yards at Louisville, so he could be used in some read-option packages.

It's not often that the No. 1 overall pick doesn't start Week 1, but the Panthers don't want to rush anything. Panthers GM Scott Fitterer said there is no timetable for Young to start, so they plan to wait it out. Dalton signed a two-year, $11 million deal with Carolina over the offseason. The expectation is that Young is going to start before the 2023 season is over, but the Panthers aren't going to rush him.

We've all heard this story before, so we'll wait and see if he actually suits up at the beginning of camp. The expectation is that Chris Olave will take over as the No. 1, which could make Thomas an interesting sleeper option if he's actually healthy.

"We'll work through that process here over the rest of this spring on into Summer." Jefferson is coming off an explosive year, finishing 2022-23 with 1,809 yards and eight touchdowns off 128 catches. He also added another score on the run. Without question, the 24-year-old will be the top fantasy selection in many drafts heading into the season. Considering he's had a year to learn O'Connell's system, he may be even more potent.

Of course, Williams' status for the start of the season may not be revealed until closer to Week 1. But even if he misses a few games to begin the 2023-24 campaign, he might dodge a trip to the PUP list, which would be fantastic news. That said, managers who select Williams in fantasy drafts should strongly consider picking up Samaje Perine, who totaled six touchdowns with the Bengals in 2022-23, as an insurance policy.

  • Bryce Young Impresses At Rookie Minicamp

    Headshot for Bryce Young

    Carolina Panthers head coach Frank Reich came away impressed with rookie quarterback Bryce Young's handling of the offense during his first practice with the team on Friday. The first overall pick of this year's NFL draft quickly transitioned from working inside the team's practice bubble to taking snaps under center. Young looked cool and collected and like he'd done it before. "Honestly I don't want to overdo it on the first day but he did every little thing right," Reich said. Young and wideout Jonathan Mingo are showing some early chemistry together. While Young is expected to open organized team activities behind Andy Dalton on the depth chart, the rookie is fully expected to be Carolina's Week 1 starter at QB.

  • Jamal Adams Remains Without A Return Date

    Headshot for Jamal Adams

    According to Seahawks general manager John Schneider, safety Jamal Adams (quadriceps) remains without a return date. "He's doing well," said Schneider during an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show. "We want to be really careful with his progression, so training camp, I'm just not sure. We'll see where he is when he comes in for the OTAs." The veteran tore his quad tendon during the season-opener against the Denver Broncos and has been on the shelf ever since. That said, Adams has plenty of talent. However, he's had issues staying on the field over the years. Without question, his absence wasn't ideal for a Seahawks defense that struggled at times during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Za'Darius Smith Traded To Cleveland

    Headshot for Myles Garrett

    The Vikings traded linebacker Za'Darius Smith to the Browns on Friday. The 30-year-old appeared in 16 games for the Vikings last season, totaling 44 tackles and 10 sacks. However, he requested a trade a few months ago, with his tenure in Minnesota now ending after just one season. Smith is set to hit free agency next offseason. But for now, he joins Myles Garrett to comprise a potent pass-rushing attack for the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Kyler Murray "Doing Good"

    Headshot for Kyler Murray

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) continues to work his way back from a torn ACL. While most believe the signal-caller won't be ready for Week 1, it appears head coach Jonathan Gannon is taking an optimistic approach. "He's doing good," said Gannon during an interview. "He's a long way away, but we don't play for a long time, either." Murray is coming off a disastrous 2022-23 campaign, throwing for 2,368 yards, 14 touchdowns, and seven picks. He also found the end zone three times on the run. Of course, fantasy managers don't share the same optimism as Gannon regarding Murray's return. But even if the 25-year-old is ready to roll at the start of the year, he has a way to go before reestablishing himself as a viable fantasy starter.

  • Tom Brady Could Join Raiders Ownership

    Headshot for Tom Brady

    There has already been talk about quarterback Tom Brady coming out of retirement to play for the Miami Dolphins. Now, the word is that Brady could pull out of his broadcasting agreement with Fox Sports and join Mark Davis as a limited partner of the Las Vegas Raiders. The 45-year-old doesn't seem ready to give up on the game of football, but it seems he's uncertain what he wants to do. The Raiders front office would certainly benefit from having a Hall of Fame player such as Brady around. It's unlikely that Brady is going to make up his mind anytime soon, so this could be a story all offseason long.

  • J.J. Arcega-Whiteside Trying Out For Falcons

    Headshot for J.J. Arcega-Whiteside

    Free-agent tight end J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is reportedly trying out for the Atlanta Falcons. The 26-year-old is a former second round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles from the 2019 draft. He put together three lackluster seasons at wideout before converting to tight end last season. He was traded to the Seattle Seahawks, but was cut by the organization in late August. He didn't end up playing anywhere last season, but he's still young enough to get his career back on track. It remains to be seen if the Falcons will sign Arcega-Whiteside, but regardless he's unlikely to have fantasy value.

  • 49ers Release Tyron Johnson

    Headshot for Tyron Johnson

    The San Francisco 49ers released wide receiver Tyron Johnson on Thursday. Johnson finds himself back on the free-agent market after signing with the Niners back in January. He spent time with the Houston Texans and Las Vegas Raiders in 2022, catching his only target for an eight-yard gain with the Texans. The 27-year-old pass-catcher played in four total games (one start). Johnson has played three seasons in the NFL after going undrafted. In 26 career games (one start), he has racked up 23 receptions on 32 targets for 422 yards and three touchdowns with the Los Angeles Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Raiders and Texans.

  • Jets Release Cedric Ogbuehi

    The New York Jets released veteran offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi on Thursday. Ogbuehi signed on for a second season with the Jets earlier this offseason, but he finds himself back on the open market already after the team signed Billy Turner and drafted Carter Warren to beef up their offensive line. The 31-year-old played in only seven games (five starts) for the Jets in 2022. He was originally a first-round selection by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015 out of Texas A&M and spent the first four seasons of his career with the Bengals before jumping around with the Jaguars, Seahawks, Ravens and Jets. Ogbuehi has played in 67 games (35 starts) in his eight NFL seasons.

  • James Robinson Competing For Complementary Role

    Headshot for James Robinson

    Since his rookie season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots running back James Robinson's career hasn't gone as planned. At the end of the 2021 season, Robinson suffered a torn Achilles. After getting healthy and reclaiming a starting job in 2022, he was traded to the New York Jets, but he had a difficult time contributing in his time there. He was inactive the last five games and finished with 85 rushing yards in four games. But the 24-year-old now has a chance to compete for a role with the Pats behind lead back Rhamondre Stevenson. He also thinks he's fully past his Achilles tear and can run like he did as a rookie. Robinson has a chance to seize a role left by Damien Harris, but he'll have to compete with Pierre Strong Jr., Kevin Harris and Ty Montgomery. At best, Robinson could carve out a modest pass-catching role in 2023.

  • Trey Lance Looking Good During Offseason Workouts

    Headshot for Trey Lance

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance (finger) suffered a hairline fracture of his right index finger in the 2021 preseason, and it proved to be a major setback that severely limited his throwing ability for more than a year, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. The head coach said Lance's lower body is fine and he's been throwing the ball very well at the start of the offseason program because his finger is no longer an issue, either. "He was able to get such a better base in these last two months that I think Trey is the best that we've (seen) him right now," Shanahan said. Still, if he's healthy by the start of the regular season, Brock Purdy (elbow) is going to be the team's starter at QB. Lance, the third overall pick in 2021, could need a trade out of San Fran to regain fantasy appeal in single-year and dynasty/keeper leagues.

  • Panthers Re-Sign Michael Jordan

    The Carolina Panthers re-signed offensive guard Michael Jordan to an undisclosed deal on Thursday. Jordan will now enter his third season for the Panthers after playing in 28 games (10 starts) for the team over the last two seasons. The 25-year-old offensive lineman played in all 17 games in 2022. He was originally a fourth-round selection by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2019 out of Ohio State. Jordan spent the first two years of his NFL career with the Bengals before joining Carolina. In his four-year career, Jordan has played in 55 games (29 starts) and will continue to give the Panthers offensive-line depth in 2023.

  • Cowboys Sign Mazi Smith To Rookie Deal

    Headshot for Mazi Smith

    The Dallas Cowboys signed first-round defensive tackle Mazi Smith to his four-year rookie deal on Thursday. The contract comes with a fifth-year option. In addition to Smith, the Cowboys signed all of the rookie draft picks, including Luke Schoonmaker, DeMarvion Overshown, Junior Fehoko, Asim Richards, Eric Scott Jr., Deuce Vaughn and Jalen Brooks. Dallas opens their rookie minicamp on Friday. Smith brings plenty of power to the middle of the Cowboys' defensive line at 6-foot-3, 323 pounds, and he should immediately make the Dallas D better at stopping the run. The 21-year-old is still very raw, though, so he'll need to be coached up at the next level to reach his true ceiling as a hog molly on the interior of the defense.

  • Cardinals Sign Paris Johnson Jr. To Rookie Deal

    Headshot for Paris Johnson Jr.

    The Arizona Cardinals signed first-round offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. to his four-year rookie deal on Thursday. The contract includes a fifth-year option. In addition to Johnson, Arizona agreed to rookie deals with wide receiver Michael Wilson (third round), offensive lineman Jon Gaines II (fourth round), quarterback Clayton Tune (fifth round) and linebacker Owen Pappoe (fifth round). Johnson was the sixth overall pick in this year's draft and was a first-team All-American and first-team All-Big Ten selection in 2022 after making 13 starts at left tackle. The 21-year-old should be a solid starting left tackle for the Cardinals in time, thanks to his freakish athleticism and great range.

  • Chargers Agree With Quentin Johnston On Rookie Deal

    Headshot for Quentin Johnston

    The Los Angeles Chargers agreed to terms with first-round wide receiver Quentin Johnston on his four-year rookie deal on Thursday. As with all first-round rookies, Johnston will receive a fifth-year option. The 21-year-old was the 21st overall pick of this year's NFL draft. He should have a role in his first NFL season opposite Mike Williams, but he'll also be battling for offensive snaps with Joshua Palmer. Keenan Allen will stay on the inside in the slot. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect too much from the big-bodied, big-play deep threat in 2023, though, unless Williams and Allen missed considerable time again with injuries. Johnston will need to answer questions about his route-running and athleticism.

  • Seahawks Sign Jaxon Smith-Njigba To Rookie Deal

    Headshot for Jaxon Smith-Njigba

    The Seattle Seahawks signed first-round wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba to his four-year rookie deal on Thursday. The contract includes a standard fifth-year option. Smith-Njigba was the 20th overall selection in this year's NFL draft, and he started a little receiver run late in the first round. He'll be third on the pass-catching totem pole behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett in Seattle, but his presence gives rising quarterback Geno Smith yet another weapon through the air. The 21-year-old pass-catcher should make an immediate impact in his rookie year and has been the most popular rookie receiver so far in fantasy drafts, but managers also will need to temper their expectations in Year 1 as long as both Metcalf and Lockett remain healthy.

  • Bijan Robinson Agrees To Rookie Deal

    The Atlanta Falcons agreed to terms with first-round running back Bijan Robinson on a four-year rookie deal on Thursday. The eighth overall pick of the 2023 NFL draft will receive $21.96 million, which is fully guaranteed and includes a fifth-year option. Seventh-round safety DeMarcco Hellams also agreed to a four-year deal. Robinson was considered the best draft prospect this year, regardless of position. The 21-year-old should become a three-down workhorse back for the Falcons sooner than later, even with sophomore Tyler Allgeier still on the roster. In a run-first offense, it means that Robinson immediately becomes an expensive RB1 in fantasy.

  • Mario Edwards Joins Seahawks

    Headshot for Mario Edwards

    The Seattle Seahawks have signed defensive end Mario Edwards to a one-year deal. The 29-year-old visited with the Seahawks in March, but didn't decide to sign until now. He has bounced around the league quite a bit since being drafted in the second round by the Raiders in 2015. Last season, Edwards recorded three sacks and a career-high 11 quarterback hits in 13 games (seven starts) with the Tennessee Titans. The expectation is that Edwards is going to be a rotational piece on the Seahawks d-line.

  • Trey Lance Changes Throwing Grip

    Headshot for Trey Lance

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance (finger) was forced to change his throwing grip last season. The young signal-caller suffered a hairline finger fracture that never healed properly. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Lance suffered the injury during the 2021 preseason and had to change everything he did with the football. The former No. 3 overall pick has experienced some bad luck early in his career. Despite that, he'll likely begin the season as the starter with Brock Purdy (elbow) still recovering. It's uncertain what the 49ers are going to do once Purdy and Lance are both healthy. Honestly, trading Lance seems like the best solution, but it remains to be seen what the 49ers decide to do.

  • Seahawks Think Kenny McIntosh Is Special

    Headshot for Kenny McIntosh

    The Seattle Seahawks took rookie running back Kenny McIntosh in the seventh round of this year's NFL draft, but head coach Pete Carroll thinks McIntosh "easily" could have been taken in the third round. Carroll called the running back room "really together" and also said that Kenneth Walker III has had a "fantastic" offseason and is ready to be more versatile in 2023. Walker is expected to lead Seattle's backfield this year, but McIntosh and fellow rookie Zach Charbonnet are worth watching in what could become a frustrating timeshare that also involved DeeJay Dallas. The 23-year-old McIntosh led Georgia in rushing yards (829) and receptions (43) in 2022. He could carve out a role on third downs, but he'll mostly be a flier in dynasty/keeper leagues in his rookie season.

  • Chiefs Cuts Byron Cowart

    Headshot for Byron Cowart

    The Kansas City Chiefs cut defensive tackle Byron Cowart on Wednesday. Cowart agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with the Chiefs in March, but he won't even make it to training camp with the team before going back on the open market. Cowart was originally a fifth-round selection in 2019 by the New England Patriots out of Maryland. He spent the first two seasons of his career with the Patriots before playing in 17 games (zero starts) for the Indianapolis Colts last year. The 26-year-old finished 2022 with only 12 tackles (four solo) with the Colts. Cowart will now look to latch on with another organization for the 2023 campaign.

  • Gary Jennings To Try Out For Panthers

    Headshot for Gary Jennings

    Former West Virginia University wide receiver Gary Jennings has been invited for a tryout with the Carolina Panthers. Jennings is available on the open market after the Kansas City Chiefs waived him from Injured Reserve last August due to a concussion. He did not play at all in 2022 and has only one NFL reception, back in his rookie season in 2019 with the Miami Dolphins. The 26-year-old will hope to impress Carolina's coaching staff in order to sign a contract. Even if Jennings lands in Carolina, he's likely to be a long shot to make the active roster out of training camp this summer.

  • Cade Otton To Face Competition

    Headshot for Cade Otton

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cade Otton earned the starting role last year with Rob Gronkowski and O.J. Howard gone, and he finished his rookie year with 391 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 42 catches, which led all rookie tight ends. Otton quickly gained the trust of quarterback Tom Brady. But Brady is now retired, and the Bucs also added rookie Payne Durham in the fifth round of the draft. Durham served as a Y tight end at Purdue and had 56 catches for 560 yards and eight touchdowns in 2022 for the Boilermakers. He has a large catch radius and is adept at catching outside his frame. Otton should open the season as the team's TE1, but Durham could steal valuable targets away. The bottom line is that Otton will be a more volatile TE1 prospect with Brady no longer throwing him passes.

  • 49ers Think Highly Of All Three Quarterbacks

    Headshot for Sam Darnold

    The San Francisco 49ers are extremely happy with all three of their quarterbacks -- Brock Purdy (elbow, Trey Lance and Sam Darnold -- heading into the 2023 season. "I do believe we have three quarterbacks talent-wise who are all capable of being franchise-like quarterbacks. But that's just capable. Brock's done that in his eight. And we have two other guys on our roster who we strongly believe can do that also." Purdy is expected to be ready for training camp this summer after having surgery on the UCL in his right elbow this offseason, and if fully healthy, he's expected to start under center in Week 1. Given San Fran's love for Darnold, there's a chance they trade Lance this summer to another QB-needy team. Lance's dynasty/keeper stock has fallen precipitously in the last year.
