  • LAC Quarterback #10
    In other words, Roman and head coach Jim Harbaugh won’t be changing a thing with their approach and will lean on the run far more than the past few Chargers coaches. “We want to be a balanced offense,” Roman began. “We want to be able to run it when we want to run it and throw it when we want to throw it. If they present looks that are favorable to run it, then we want to be able to run it at a high level. Every place I’ve been, that’s kind of been the goal, to try to have that complete attack. ... But I think in this league, you can really help dictate to defenses if you have a strong running attack.” When asked how that squares with Justin Herbert’s strengths, Roman responded “that’s where you have to come back to what your ultimate concern is, and for us, it’s winning,” The question isn’t whether Herbert’s pass attempts will decline, but by how much. Although it could very much be a good thing in real life, it’s going to make things complicated in fantasy. Herbert will need to become more efficient in the mold of Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers’ primes.
  • LV Running Back #8
    Reed believes the Raiders are unlikely to slap a second straight franchise tag on Jacobs since it would run a hefty $13.669 million, so a multi-year agreement would seem to be his only potential avenue to remaining in Silver and Black. Jacobs suffered through a down 2023 after reporting late, but he was a valued team leader under then interim and now permanent head coach Antonio Pierce. The Raiders have plenty of cap space, and new GM Tom Telesco frequently invested in the position in Los Angeles. There’s a very real chance Jacobs departs, but it’s not a fait accompli.
  • BAL Running Back #35
    Edwards was one of a handful of Ravens heading into the “void year” on his deal, and the deadline to extend such players was Monday. Since the Ravens declined to do so with Edwards, he would count against their cap twice for 2024 if he re-signed now. In other words, there is almost no chance he’s back. Edwards has long been a valued role player in the Ravens’ committee backfield, but the team seems to be itching to remake its running back group after 2023’s ongoing injury issues. They have already been loosely connected to impending free agent Derrick Henry. A one-trick pony going on 29 with a recent injury history, Edwards could struggle for a high guarantee on the open market despite last year’s 13 touchdowns.
  • BUF Wide Receiver #13
    Those factors are Davis’s “on-field inconsistency” and a contract Buscaglia believes could better the $11 million per season Jakobi Meyers landed last spring. Buscaglia emphasizes the Bills still love Davis’s “ability on the field, the role he played over the last two years and how hard he works every offseason.” It’s just going to be difficult to make him a priority considering their salary cap and internal free agent situations. For his part, Davis recently posted something of a Bills farewell on social media. Buscaglia believes Davis could return if his market is colder than expected, but that it’s not the most likely outcome.
  • IND Wide Receiver #11
    “I don’t want to use it, but it’s a tool,” Ballard said. “If we have to use it, we will.” The Colts have a strange aversion to tagging players, last doing so in 2013 with ... then-punter Pat McAfee. It’s the second longest tag-less streak in the NFL, albeit one that is certain to be broken with Pittman absent a long-term agreement. For his part, Pittman sounded surprisingly open to the possibility last month. “With the franchise tag, I don’t think anyone would be displeased with $23 million,” Pittman said. “The franchise tag is almost like a tag of respect, to get paid in the top five at your position, but do I necessarily want to play on one? I wouldn’t say, necessarily, no, I do not want to play on the tag, but you can use that to work toward a long-term deal.” Pittman’s agent probably didn’t love that, but it’s clear Pittman will remain a Colt for 2024.
  • SEA Quarterback #7
    The Seahawks let Smith’s $12.7 million base salary guarantee itself last week, though they’ve now converted his $9.6 million roster bonus into a pro-rated “signing bonus” that will spread out over the remainder of his deal through 2025. The move creates $4.8 million in cap space. Smith predictably regressed off his 2022 career year in 2023, but he remained at least a league-average starter. Considering the receiver weapons at his disposal, he will remain a viable streamer this year even if the Seahawks go majorly run heavy under new coach Mike Macdonald.
  • PHI Tight End #85
    Okwuegbunam was acquired by the Eagles at final cuts last August and proceeded to catch zero balls across four appearances. The 25-year-old did manage to avoid major injury, which has been his career-long bugaboo. There did seem to be something of a phantom I.R. placement in December. Okwuegbunam presumably has an uphill climb to re-secure his 53-man roster spot for 2024, but surviving through the entirety of the 2023 campaign will give him at least a fighting chance. Although he’s still somehow only headed into his age-26 campaign, Albert O’s Dynasty league moment has come and gone.
  • LAR Quarterback #13
    The Rams have been largely quiet on Bennett’s status since placing him on the NFI list in mid-September. Bennett was a two-time national champ at Georgia and a fourth-round selection of the Rams last season, but he’s spent the majority of his professional career away from the field. Bennett did appear in three preseason games, throwing for 347-1-3 while completing 58.1 percent of his passes.
  • DET Kicker #17
    Badgley kicked in four games for the Lions season, converting all four of his field goal attempts in limited action. He’s converted on 82.4 percent of his field goal attempts for his career and was 3-for-3 on his postseason field goal attempts this year. We’re early into the offseason, but Badgley should have the inside edge to win the Lions’ kicker job for the 2024 season.
  • KC Punter #19
    ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first on the report, as the Chiefs will presumably give Araiza to win the punting job in camp this summer. A former sixth-round pick of the Bills in 2022, Araiza was released just months after being drafted for his alleged involvement in a sexual assault case that took place at his alma mater in 2021. It was later reported in May of last year that there were no findings linking Araiza to the case, clearing him of any involvement. Araiza worked out with the Jets shortly after being cleared but did not sign a contract or earn an invite from a team to training camp. Once known as the “Punt God,” Araiza boasted one of the most impressive punting resumés in college football history, and should have a legitimate shot to earn an NFL job if he gets to compete in camp.
