  • FA Running Back
    Brooks, entering the NFL Draft after three seasons at Texas, injured his ACL in November to end a highly-productive junior season campaign. Brooks told reporters at the NFL Combine that his recovery is ahead of schedule and that he should be ready to roll come training camp. It seems like a rosy injury assessment, but a running back-needy team could take a chance on Brooks and let him get fully healthy before deploying him in camp or the preseasons. Brooks, 20, averaged a hefty 6.2 yards per carry on 238 carries at Texas over three seasons, scoring 15 rushing touchdowns over his final 17 games.
  • 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 Safety #6
    The news was broken by Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz. 10 days shy of his 31st birthday, Maye finished 2023 on injured reserve with a shoulder issue. His release comes two seasons into a three-year deal, and frees up $7.2 million in cap space if he’s designated a post-June 1 cut. Injuries have been a major issue for the former Jet, though he’s remained an every-down player when healthy. Maye was not effective last season, but his departure leaves the Saints with a hole or two on the back end of their defense.
  • DAL Quarterback #15
    However, Calvin Watkins reports the team will not pick up Lance’s fifth-year team option for 2025. That part basically went without saying. Per Watkins, “team officials did not consider cutting Lance, whom they believe made tremendous strides last season.” Lance was not the No. 2 quarterback for the Cowboys’ Super Bowl-or-bust roster, though 31-year-old Cooper Rush is a cut candidate at his currently scheduled salary of $2.25 million. Amazingly, Lance remains two months shy of his 24th birthday.
  • 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.
  • HOU Tackle #78
    Per Wilson, Tunsil had “dealt with some swelling and tightness during the season” that necessitated “having it drained a few times.” Tunsil was frequently listed on the injury report with his knee, missing three total games. He also dealt with a groin issue. Going on 30, Tunsil should presumably be fully recovered by training camp. Tunsil has never quite been elite in Houston, but he remains an above average left tackle.
