  • 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.
  • NE Wide Receiver #84
    Bourne joined the Patriots as a free agent in 2021 when he signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the team. During his three-years with the team, Bourne totaled 127-1640-15, and was on pace for a career-year last season before a torn ACL cut him short. Bourne caught 37 passes for 406 yards and four touchdowns in 2023 but is far from the solution to the Patriots’ wide receiver woes. Still, he could be a serviceable No. 3 option in an offense that desperately needs a No. 1 receiver.
  • KC Cornerback #38
    The report is of particular intrigue considering the current contract status of DT Chris Jones, whom the team will likely now need to sign to a hefty extension if they want to retain him this offseason. Russini adds that the two sides will continue to work towards a new deal as the league year approaches. The cornerback franchise tag valuation for the 2024 season is $19.802 million.
  • BUF Running Back #0
    Hines tore his ACL last summer and missed the entirety of the 2023 season. He was expected to serve as the primary kick returner in addition to sporadic usage in the offense, the bulk of which would have likely come in the red zone. Buffalo brought in three separate running backs last season but now carry only James Cook and Darrynton Evans on the active roster with all of Ty Johnson, Latavius Murray, and Damien Harris unrestricted free agents heading into the new league year. It appears as if the Bills will be buyers at the running back position for the third consecutive year.
  • NFL Commissioner
    The league made the leap to a 17-game season in 2021 but could soon be pushing to add an 18th game. As Florio points out in his article, an 18th game “likely won’t come until the next labor deal,” but his “first hint” of the possibility came when Browns GM Andrew Berry mentioned the Browns and other teams are proposing delaying the trade deadline by two weeks in anticipation of an 18th game being added. The current CBA isn’t set to expire until March 2030, so this isn’t expected to happen anytime soon, but it sounds like the league adding an extra game is all but a done deal — even if years away.
  • PIT Quarterback #8
    According to Fowler, the Steelers “have started the process of rebuilding Pickett, as the third-year quarterback reportedly met with new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith to begin going over things. Fowlers notes that the Steelers’ overall offensive woes under former offensive coordinator Matt Canada may have been enough to buy Pickett one more season, with the hopes that Smith can get more out of him. Pickett has thrown for 4,474 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions in 25 career games. The former No. 20 overall pick has looked like anything but a first-round talent through two years in the league, but he has at least two more years left on his rookie deal, and the team can exercise his fifth-year option for the 2026 season should they be interested in doing so. While rolling with Pickett seems to go against conventional wisdom, the Steelers may feel incentivized to give him one more opportunity, given the contractual benefits.
  • MIN Linebacker #99
    This doesn’t mean a deal with Hunter won’t get done before free agency opens up, but with the team also attempting to re-sign Kirk Cousins and extend Justin Jefferson, it’s possible Hunter at least makes it to the open market. Jeremy Fowler added that teams are expecting Hunter to seek a deal that pays “well north of $20 million per year,” which would make him amongst the highest paid EDGE rushers i the league. Hunter tallied a career-high 16.5 sacks with the Vikings last season and has totaled 87.5 sacks through his first eight seasons in the league. Hunter will be 29 at the start of next season, and should have no trouble fetching a lucrative deal should he and the Vikings not come to terms on a contract in the coming weeks.
  • CHI Quarterback #1
    The Falcons have been a popular choice amongst those speculating where Fields could land, but Dan Graziano reported the team is eyeing Kirk Cousins as their “top QB solution” should the veteran come available. Fields is widely believed to be available for a second or third-round pick, which sounds like a more than affordable price for a former first-rounder who can remain under team control through 2025 — assuming his fifth-year option is exercised. Whether or not Fields lands in Minnesota will be directly correlated with where Cousins goes in free agency, while the Steelers and Raiders could simply look to acquire him as an upgrade over the quarterbacks they already have in place. While there’s no deadline for the Bears to get a deal done to move Fields, it would make sense for all involved to trade him before the start of free agency.
