The final week of the regular season marks one last call for season-defining wins in the Big Ten.
It’s a busy week in the golf world. Here’s how you can watch it all.

Latest Player News

All Player News
  • BUF Guard #71
    General Manager Ryan poles initially targeted the veteran offensive lineman in the 2022 free agent cycle but was unsuccessful after the Bills matched his offer sheet, now landing him for a 2024 fifth round pick. The five-year pro played every game of his career in Buffalo, starting 19 games across 73 appearances. The Vikings also pursued Bates in 2022 after reports surfaced that they viewed him as a starting right guard. Bates should enter camp in a loose competition for a starting role on the interior offensive line for the Bears, a team that returns both Nate Davis and Teven Jenkins at guard.
  • DAL Quarterback #4
    It was reported in February that Prescott would likely sign a new deal before the start of free agency to help free up cap space for the Cowboys. Prescott carries a cap hit of $59.455 million this season, with a base salary of $29 million. While Jerry Jones is on record saying an extension for Prescott isn’t something the team needs to do, the team currently sits at just over $4 million over the league cap and could alleviate that pressure with a Prescott extension. Prescott played some of his best ball in 2023, throwing for 4,516-36-9 while leading the Cowboys to a 12-5 record. For a player who should have plenty of good seasons left in the tank, an extension feels like it would make the most sense for both sides.
  • FA Quarterback #3
    The release of Wilson ends one of the more disappointing quarterback tenures in recent memory. Acquired from the Seahawks in exchange for two first-round draft picks, a second-round draft pick, a fifth-round pick, and players, Wilson was the presumed answer to the Broncos’ years-long quarterback woes in a post-Peyton Manning era. He immediately signed a five-year, $242 million contract extension with the Broncos shortly after being acquired, which included $161 million in guaranteed money. Interestingly, the first year of Wilson’s deal was set to kick in at the start of 2024, but he’ll now be playing elsewhere while earning roughly $39 million in guaranteed money from the Broncos. In two seasons with the Broncos, Wilson threw for 6,594-42-19, with the team going 11-19 in his starts. Still a more-than-capable starter; there are several teams who could elevate their passing game by signing Wilson, who should have a nice market. Wilson’s release will become official when the new league year starts on March 13th. If Wilson is designated as a post-June 1st cut, he will count as a $35.4 million dead cap hit in 2024 and a $49.6 million dead cap hit in 2025, per Spotrac.com.
  • KC Cornerback #38
    As Rapoport notes, if Sneed is unable to find a trade partner, it’s possible he just plays out the 2024 season on the franchise tag with the Chiefs. Arguably one of the top corners in the league right now, Sneed, 27, could instantly improve any secondary upon his arrival. The four-year vet earned a PFF coverage grade of 71.9 last season while allowing no touchdowns on 81 targets and breaking up 10 passes. If he were to play out the year on the tag, Sneed would earn a guaranteed $19.802 million next season.
  • MIA Defensive Tackle #94
    It was reported on Sunday that the Dolphins were unlikely to tag Wilkins, but that became official on Monday, according to Rapoport. Wilkins will be one of the top free agents on the market and is fresh off a season in which he totaled 65 tackles and a career-high nine sacks. Wilkins will be 28 at the start of next season and can immediately bolster any defensive line in need of help.
  • FA Center #62
    Kelce spent all 13 seasons with the Eagles and became one of the most beloved figures in Philadelphia sports history during that time. The seven-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro has mulled retirement for the last several years but is finally ready to hang it up. Widely regarded as one of the best centers in NFL history, Kelce anchored the Eagles’ offensive line for the 2017 season when the team won their first Super Bowl in league history and played in 193 of a possible 211 regular season games during his career, last missing a game in 2014. A true iron man of the sport, Kelce will almost certainly find himself in the Hall of Fame in the coming years.
  • MIN Quarterback #8
    According to Schefter, the Commanders are “open to anything” with the No. 2 overall pick, including making a trade back to acquire additional picks. This isn’t the first time Cousin’s name has been linked to Washington, who he spent the first six years of his career with. Schefter also noted that the Vikings and Falcons are expected to be the two primary suitors for Cousins, but it’s worth noting that Cousins’ departure from Washington back in 2018 had more to do with the regime in place at that time not wanting to commit to him long-term. With those characters now gone, an enticing offer from the Commanders could be enough to bring him back if he’s interested in doing so.
  • FA Quarterback
    While we don’t know the exact date for this visit, USC’s Pro Day is scheduled for March 20th. This could prove meaningful for Justin Fields, as the team has yet to decide whether or not they will trade him and start over at QB by selecting Williams with the No. 1 pick next month or roll with Fields as their starter next season. All signs point to the Bears drafting Williams with the top pick, which means they would inevitably trade Fields to a QB-needy team. With the new league season and free agency set to kickoff March 13th, it’s possible the Bears trade Fields before meeting with Williams to ensure his trade market is at its peak.
  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    Evans’ new deal includes $35 million in guaranteed money. Just days after it was announced Evans would test free agency in hopes of joining a team with an elite quarterback, the 10-year vet has opted to return to the Buccaneers, who are also expected to re-sign Baker Mayfield at some point in the offseason. Evans will be 31 at the start of next season and remains at the top of his game. His 1,255 yards were his most since 2018, while his 15.9 YPR was his highest mark since 2019. Playing in a down-bad NFC South, the Buccaneers should once again push for a playoff berth next season, but the offense could look a bit different with former offensive coordinator Dave Canales now in Carolina.
  • PHI Center #62
    Kelce has been mulling retirement since the Eagles’ season came to an end following their Wild Card loss to the Buccaneers. Kelce reportedly told teammates he would retire prior to the team’s playoff loss, but that report has since been refuted. The seven-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro has strung together a hall-of-fame caliber resumé during his 13 year career, and has little left to prove at this point. With that said, the Eagles remain one of the top teams in the NFC and could have another Super Bowl run in them next season.
