  • FA Tight End
    The consensus TE1 of this year’s draft class, fans, and the league have been waiting for nearly two years for Bowers to enter the NFL Draft. Bowers totaled 175 receptions for 2,538 yards and 26 touchdowns during his college career while averaging an impressive 14.5 YPR. While it would be disappointing to see him skip the combine workout, we would still get a chance to see him test at Georgia’s pro day, which is scheduled for March 13th.
  • PHI Quarterback #1
    Vincent appears to be all-in on the “tush push,” saying that there’s no need to “punish a team that strategically does it well” while also adding the Eagles’ success rate on the play is “just amazing.” This should come as good news to Jalen Hurts and his fantasy managers. Hurts has totaled 28 rushing touchdowns over the last two seasons, with 17 of those scores coming from just one yard out. The push to ban the play has largely come from gripes over how successful it is, but as Vincent points out, a high success rate on a play that’s within the rules isn’t a reason to ban a play in the eyes of the NFL Competition Committee. Vincent noted that the committee didn’t even discuss the play when they met at this year’s Scouting Combine.
  • NO Defensive End #94
    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jordan signed a deal that freed up $1.5 million in cap space for the Saints. Jordan is just the latest Saint to re-work his deal as the team once again looks to get below the cap before the start of the new league year. A 13-year vet, Jordan has 117.5 career sacks to his name but managed just two sacks in 17 games last year. Jordan will be 35 at the start of next season and is clearly on the back nine of his career.
  • MIA Quarterback #1
    According to Wolfe, Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said the team is “hopeful to get something done before training camp” with Tagovailoa, who is in line for a big extension this offseason. Heading into a contract year, Tagovailoa now has a Pro Bowl season and playoff game under his belt from 2023. In four seasons, the Dolphins have emphasized their commitment to him as their franchise quarterback, especially with his development under head coach Mike McDaniel over the last two. Tagovailoa posted a league-high 8.9 yards per attempt in 2022 and a league-high 4,624 total passing yards in 2023. Wolfe emphasized that a deal expected to be as large as Tagovailoa’s likely won’t get done before free agency, but that the Dolphins aim to have it done before the season.
  • KC Coaching Staff
    The 49ers fired defensive coordinator Steve Wilks after their Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs. Merritt has been the Chiefs defensive backs coach since 2019. He has two Super Bowl rings with them and another two from his 14-year tenure with the Giants. Merritt spent the bulk of that time as the Giants’ secondary coach & safeties coach. He coached under Steve Spagnuolo for a few years in New York and rejoined his staff in Kansas City. The connection to one of the league’s most revered defensive minds makes him a strong option for a San Francisco staff set to hire its third defensive coordinator in as many years.
  • LAR Tight End #89
    Higbee tore his ACL and MCL in LA’s Wild Card Round loss to the Lions. He was taken down on a blindside hit to the leg. Though Snead didn’t set a timeline for his recovery, it’s safe to assume Higbee will not be available for the first month of the season. He could miss more than half of the year. Davis Allen didn’t do much in his rookie season but did serve as Higbee’s backup for the majority of his debut campaign. He could be in line for a larger workload in year two.
  • FA Quarterback
    The other four passers are USC’s Caleb Williams, North Carolina’s Drake Maye, Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy, and Oregon’s Bo Nix. Williams will meet with the Patriots later today while the rest of the group have already met with the New England brass. The Patriots hold the No. 3 overall pick, giving them an opportunity to land one of the top quarterbacks in the class, though they aren’t guaranteed their first choice. Following the seismic shift of Bill Belichick’s departure, now is the perfect time to reset at quarterback as well. Though the Patriots could look to the veteran market for a new passer, it looks like they are a good bet to take a rookie at some point during the draft.
  • NYJ Quarterback #2
    This comes as no surprise. Jets owner Woody Johnson said the team needed a backup quarterback less than a week ago and reports of a Wilson trade began again toward the end of the 2023 season. Wilson flamed out in New York and struggled when called upon following Aaron Rodgers’ torn Achilles’ tendon in Week 1. Better coaching and a new environment will give him a shot at turning things around next year, though even that feels unlikely at this point. Wilson will only cost a Day Three pick for the team acquiring him. He will likely be put into a camp battle for a backup job once traded.
  • NO Tackle #71
    Allen noted that Ramczyk could be ready before training camp. The veteran tackle has dealt with knee issues for a while and missed the final four games of the season because of it. He told reporters late in the season that he has been dealing with cartilage loss in his knee for years. At the time, surgery and early retirement were both on the table. There have been no further retirement talks and Allen saying he expects Ramczyk to be ready by camp suggests he will give it another go in 2024.
  • JAX Running Back #1
    “I would consider knocking a few of those reps down to keep him healthy over the course of the year,” Pederson told NBC Sports’ Matthew Berry at the NFL Combine. Pederson acknowledged RB Tank Bigsby’s rookie season struggles but said the team remained committed to getting him more playing time in 2024. Etienne’s 325 touches in 2023 ranked as the third most among all NFL running backs. Only Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry, and Rachaad White had more rushing attempts than Etienne last season. Etienne ran the fourth most pass routes among running backs in 2023. A slightly scaled back role shouldn’t hurt his fantasy prospects too much next season.
