  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    According to Russini, the Buccaneers and Evans “are in discussions,” but the veteran receiver “wants to explore his options.” Evans would like to hear from all interested teams before making a decision on where to play, which means his time with the Buccaneers could be coming to an end. Evans played in all 17 games for the Buccaneers last season, totaling 79 receptions for 1,255 yards and 13 touchdowns. Evans has surpassed 1,000 yards in each of his first 10 seasons and will be 31 at the start of next year. His fantasy stock could see a tremendous boost if he were to team up with one of the league’s top quarterbacks this offseason.
  • GB Running Back #28
    Dillon is set to be a free agent this month and will likely be playing elsewhere in 2024. The former second-round pick drastically underperformed expectations in a contract year that saw Aaron Jones miss six games due to injury. Dillon rushed for 613 yards on 178 carries while averaging a career-low 3.4 YPC. Dillon never rushed for more than 76 yards in a game last season and eclipsed 50 yards in just six of 15 games. Profiled as a high-end bruiser back out of Boston College, Dillon has averaged just 2.80 YCO/ATT over the last two seasons while forcing a missed tackle on just 12.1 percent of his rush attempts. Dillon will be 26 at the start of next season and could land a high-profile RB2 role on the right team, but isn’t expected to garner much interest as a lead back.
  • FA Tight End #82
    Just hours after the Commanders cut ties with left tackle Charles Leno, Logan Thomas became the latest Commander to get let go. Thomas caught 55 passes for 496 yards and four touchdowns over 16 games and posted a line of 184-1685-14 in four seasons with the team. His 2020 breakout (72-670-6) came in his first season as a full-time starter, as the former quarterback turned tight end enjoyed a bit of a career renaissance after switching positions. A torn ACL limited to Thomas to just six games in 2021, but he’s played in 30 of a possible 34 regular season games since 2022. Thomas will be 33 at the start of next season and could still offer value as roster depth. His release will save the Commanders $6.5 million against the cap.
  • NYG Tight End #12
    Waller, 31, “expressed to individuals in the Giants organization that he was contemplating retirement” after another injury-marred season in which he managed just one touchdown on 52 catches over 11 games. Waller has since committed to returning to the Giants in 2024. He’ll make $10.5 million in base salary and count as a $14 million salary cap hit for the team. The big-framed Waller — constantly battling hamstring injuries — is at best a red zone weapon after slowing down in recent seasons.
  • TB Quarterback #6
    Palmer speculated that Falcons head coach Raheem Morris and offensive coordinator Zac Robinson — both of whom were members of the Rams coaching staff during Mayfield’s stint in LA — could lure him to Atlanta this offseason. The Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud reported last week that while nothing is imminent, Mayfield had started “preliminary” talks with the Bucs to stay in Tampa after he led the team to a postseason berth in 2023. Mayfield, entering his age-29 season, ranked 11th among quarterbacks in adjusted EPA per drop back last season, throwing 27 touchdowns to 14 interceptions. Though the Falcons are intent on upgrading at QB, Mayfield will most likely re-sign with the Bucs in March.
  • FA Running Back #2
    Heading into season two of a two-year deal, $2.75 million of Mattison’s contract was set to vest on the third day of the new league year. Cutting him loose creates $3.35 million in space. Mattison’s 2023 return was first-guessed last spring, and he responded with continued inefficiency both as a rusher and pass catcher. He simply isn’t a starting-level back, though he is versatile enough that he should still command interest as a backup. Guaranteed money might be difficult to come by in a glutted market, however. Ty Chandler is the No. 1 back on the Vikings’ current 90-man roster, but they should add at least 1-2 potential competitors.
  • TEN Quarterback #8
    “The answer from talking to people there is they think they have their guy in Will Levis,” was Wolfe’s report after talking to people within the Titans’ organization. Moving on from coach Mike Vrabel and QB Ryan Tannehill, the Titans have the No. 7 overall pick, but would have to make a big move up to get any of the draft’s top three quarterbacks. Perhaps Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy will fall. Levis confirmed his mammoth arm as a rookie but left everything else up for debate. 2024 is definitely a make-or-break year.
  • NYG Running Back #26
    “My understanding is, the team remains open to multiple options, including memorializing Barkley’s legacy as a Giant, pending an agreement on mutual terms,” Anderson added. We frankly have no idea what that last bit means, but it sounds like perhaps a multi-year deal is within the range of outcomes. The Giants aren’t going to open up the bank vault for a 27-year-old running back, but they may still value Barkley more than any other team.
  • PIT Running Back #22
    “We have until the first week in May to make a decision,” Khan said. “We have a new offensive coordinator, so that’s gonna play into the decision-making process. ... We’ve been engaging frequently — coach (Mike) Tomlin and (OC Arthur Smith) and I — we’ve kind of been talking about the offense and what the vision is for it. And we think very highly of Najee and we’ll make the decision before May 2.” That’s all good and well, but if you were planning to exercise a player’s option, you would normally just say so. We still wouldn’t be surprised if Harris’ $6.79 million option is eventually called in, but that would be a clear overpay based on his first three years of production.
  • KC Defensive Tackle #95
    Per Dianna Russini, Jones is still seeking an annual $30 million, which would put him behind Aaron Donald and Nick Bosa but make him the league’s third highest paid defender. Unlike last year, negotiations seem to be in a good place, with GM Brett Veach publicly declaring he wants to sign Jones long-term. The Chiefs have spent the week clearing cap space. This seems like it is going to get done.
