  • Giovani Bernard Signs With Buccaneers

    Veteran free-agent running back Giovani Bernard is signing an undisclosed one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, according to a source. Quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bruce Arians both personally recruited Bernard, who is one of the league's best receiving backs, after he was released by the Cincinnati Bengals. It's another weapon for the Super Bowl champions, but it's uncertain how much of a role Bernard will actually have with Ronald Jones II and Leonard Fournette already in the team's backfield. Bernard, 29, had 416 rushing yards and three touchdowns and added 47 receptions for 355 yards and three additional touchdowns in 2020. Tampa's backfield is suddenly very crowded, which will make it tough to predict touches among Jones, Fournette and Bernard.

  • Bengals Grant Giovani Bernard His Release

    The Cincinnati Bengals released running back Giovani Bernard on Wednesday after he asked for his release, according to a source. The Bengals had asked him to take a pay cut two weeks into free agency, which hurt his chances of landing with another team. However, the 29-year-old pass-catching back should land on his feet rather quickly on the open market. With Bernard now out of the picture, the Bengals will move forward with Samaje Perine as the direct backup to Joe Mixon, but expect the team to address the position during this month's draft. Bernard has played all eight of his NFL seasons in Cincy after he was a second-round pick in 2013. He has 3,697 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns while also catching 342 passes for 2,867 yards and 11 touchdowns in 115 career games. Bernard started a career-high 10 games in 2020 with Mixon injured. It'll depend on where he lands, but Bernard hasn't been much more than an RB3/flex in PPR leagues in recent seasons.

  • Teams Inquiring About Giovani Bernard

    Multiple teams have called to inquire about Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard, according to a source. Barring a restructured contract, Bernard could be headed elsewhere this offseason. The 29-year-old has been one of the league's top pass-catching backs. Drafted in the second round in 2013 out of North Carolina, Bernard has been with the Bengals for his entire eight-year career. He's been a consistent contributor in the passing attack, catching at least 30 passes in every season, with a high of 56 in his rookie season. Bernard caught 47 passes on 59 targets for 355 yards and three touchdowns last season while also carrying the ball 124 times for 416 yards and another three scores. He should remain relevant in PPR leagues in 2021, and he could have even more value if he's dealt to another team. Samaje Perine would be more intriguing as Joe Mixon's backup if Bernard is traded out of Cincy.
