  • NYG Quarterback #8
    As Raanan points out, the Giants have the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft, along with two second-round picks. In addition to the draft capital, there are also questions over whether or not the team wants to move forward with Jones’ given his recent injury history (neck/torn ACL). Jones signed a four-year, $160 million deal last offseason, which the Giants almost instantly regretted after a 40-0 Week 1 loss to the Cowboys in which Jones threw for 104 yards and one touchdown. It was only one game, but the struggles looked eerily familiar. Jones later suffered a neck injury that sidelined him for a few weeks and then a torn ACL, which kept him out for the remainder of the year. Already holding a high pick in the draft, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Giants take a shot on a top quarterback come April, as Jones has struggled to look like a franchise quarterback for much of his career.
  • FA Head Coach
    Before taking the job as the Chargers head coach in 2021, Staley served as the Rams’ defensive coordinator in 2020 and also has experience as a DC at the college level. Interestingly, Staley interviewed with the Rams earlier this offseason for their defensive coordinator opening after Raheem Morris left for Atlanta, but they instead promoted LBs coach Chris Shula, to the role. Staley’s defense struggled during his time with the Chargers, never ranking better than 21st in points allowed per game. In addition to Staley, the 49ers also interviewed Nick Sorenson, who is an internal candidate currently serving as their defensive pass game coordinator.
  • FA Running Back
    Brooks suffered a torn ACL in mid-November and underwent surgery soon after. Considered by some to be the top running back in this year’s class, Brooks will not work out at the NFL Scouting Combine but is “healing well and as expected,” according to Rapoport, and projects to be cleared by training camp according to Dr. Dan Cooper. Before going down, Brooks rushed 187 times for 1,139 yards and 10 touchdowns in 11 games with the Longhorns last season and added another 25-286-1 through the air. His versatile skillset should make him a valuable rookie pick for the upcoming fantasy season.
  • FA Wide Receiver
    Nabers joins Marvin Harrison Jr. as the second high-profile wide receiver who will not work out at the combine. According to Rapoport, Nabers will report to the combine and interview with teams, but will run through tests on March 27th during LSU’s pro day. Nabers is widely considered to be the No. 2 receiver of the class and should hear his name called in the top 10 of April’s draft.
  • DAL Running Back #20
    Pollard will be 27 at the start of next season and is coming off his first year as a full-time starter. Last season with the Cowboys, Pollard rushed 252 times for 1,005 yards and six touchdowns while adding another 55 catches for 311 yards. Despite totaling more than 1,300 yards from scrimmage, Pollard was far from the explosive back we saw when he was splitting touches with Ezekiel Elliott. He averaged a career-low 4.3 yards per touch and struggled mightily to score near the opponent’s goal line. Pollard’s 17 carries from inside the opponent’s five-yard lines ranked sixth-most in the league, while his three touchdowns were the fewest of any back with 15-plus carries in the same situation. Pollard is a versatile back who can handle lead duties when needed, but he may be better suited in a split similar to what he saw through the first four years of his career.
  • LAC Running Back #30
    Despite drawing praise from new head coach Jim Harbaugh earlier this month, Ekeler is anything but a lock to return to the Chargers. the soon-to-be 29-year-old back had arguably his worst season as a pro in 2023, rushing 179 times for 628 yards and five touchdowns while averaging a career-low 3.5 YPC. The 4.3 yards per touch Ekeler averaged was also a career-low, although some will attribute his struggles to a high-ankle sprain suffered in the first game of the season. Regardless, it was a bad look for Ekeler, who attempted to secure a long-term extension last offseason only to play out the remainder of his contract while looking like one of the least efficient backs in the league. While his days as a workhorse back may be behind him, Ekeler still has utility as a pass catcher and could be deployed as more of a third-down option moving forward.
  • TEN Running Back #22
    The Titans were never expected to use the tag on Henry, who turned 30 just before the end of last season. Despite his advanced age for a running back, Henry rushed for 280-1167-12 while averaging 4.2 YPC. The veteran running back has spent the entirety of his eight-year career with the Titans but could be on the verge of joining a contender that’s hoping to add more physicality to its running game. Henry is a few years older than fellow free agents Saquon Barkley, Josh Jacobs, and Tony Pollard but should still draw plenty of interest on the open market after an effective 2023 campaign.
  • NYG Running Back #26
    According to Schefter, the Giants will discuss a potential deal with Barkley but are unlikely to franchise tag him at this point. A tag would run the Giants little more than $12 million, and given how last year’s contract negotiations played out between Barkley and the Giants, the two sides are better off parting ways if a long-term deal can’t be reached. Barkley turned 27 earlier this month and totaled 1,242 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns last season. Years of losing with the Giants, who went 6-11 last season, could prompt the former No. 2 overall pick to bolt to a contender while still somewhat in the prime of his career. Barkley could be the most coveted running back in a free agent class that’s chock full of veteran talent.
  • LV Running Back #8
    As Schefty notes in his post, the Raiders will attempt to re-sign Jacobs, who attempted to reach a long-term deal with the Raiders last offseason before holding out for most of training camp before signing a one-year deal worth up to $12 million. Jacobs didn’t impress in what may be his final season with the Raiders, rushing for 233-805-6 while averaging a career-low 3.5 YPC. Fresh off his 26th birthday, Jacobs is closing in on the age apex for running backs. Set to join a robust running back market that will feature several top names; it will be interesting to see what kind of offers Jacobs fields in a league that’s avoided paying up for running backs as of late.
  • ATL Quarterback #9
    It sounds like the Falcons are willing to do anything they deem necessary to secure a top rookie in this year’s draft if that’s the route they ultimately decide to take. Currently holding the No. 8 overall pick, the Falcons could have enough draft capital to trade into the top three if that’s what’s required to secure their guy. Former third-round pick Desmond Ridder has played in 19 career games since being drafted by the Falcons in 2022, throwing for 3544-14-12 while adding another 257 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. At this stage in his career, Ridder looks more like a serviceable backup than a quarterback who is going to change the trajectory of an. With a chance to potentially draft a franchise quarterback in this April’s draft, the Falcons are smartly keeping the door open for whoever that may be.
