  • SEA Quarterback #7
    Schneider was asked at the NFL Combine if Smith is the Seahawks’ starter. He responded, “yes, he’s the starter until he’s not.” Schneider is building the team’s coaching staff under new head coach Mike Macdonald and it appears Smith is in the new staff’s plans as of now. Smith is signed through 2025 for Seattle and was a league-average starter in 2023 after winning Comeback Player of the Year in 2022. Macdonald comes from a defensive background and while quarterback isn’t the Seahawks’ priority now, Smith is likely not the team’s long-term franchise solution.
  • KC Defensive Tackle #95
    Last offseason, Jones held out and ultimately signed a one-year deal to return to the Chiefs for 2023 after missing Week 1. Though Jones and the Chiefs could not agree to a long-term deal last offseason, there seems to be mutual interest in getting a deal done for 2024 and beyond. Jones has posted 25.5 sacks between 2022 and 2023, winning back-to-back Super Bowls as a centerpiece of the Chiefs’ defense. The 29-year-old is in line for a big deal this offseason.
  • KC Defensive Back #38
    That’s if no long-term agreement can be reached. Per Fowler, Sneed is “agreeable to the scenario, giving him chance to talk with other teams while K.C. remains in play.” An every-snap player the past three seasons, Sneed and his man coverage were one of the most important elements of the Chiefs’ recent Super Bowl championship. He is not the kind of player you would normally trade, though Sneed is already 27 and the Chiefs have the kind of salary cap realities that come along with having a player like Patrick Mahomes.
  • LV Running Back #8
    The Raiders GM Tom Telesco said “I don’t anticipate using that tag this year” in regards to Jacobs. Doing so would cost the Raiders $13.7 million in 2024. According to Tafur, the Raiders will instead use a committee approach in the run game. Jacobs adds to an already loaded and talented free agent market at running back.
  • MIN Coaching Staff #3
    A first-time NFL coach on Frank Reich’s Panthers staff last season, McCown was part of owner David Tepper’s mid-season scapegoating for his awful roster. The 44-year-old was let go Nov. 27. He has landed in a far better offense and coaching tree, saddling up alongside Sean McVay disciple Kevin O’Connell, who has quickly proven to be an excellent coach in his own right. Especially if impending free agent Kirk Cousins re-signs, it will be a spot where McCown can continue climbing the NFL coaching ladder.
  • CIN Wide Receiver #5
    The Bengals’ director of player personnel, Duke Tobin implied that the team plans to keep Higgins on the roster. He further reiterated that the team has the means to keep him in Cincinnati. It was thought that Higgins could possibly be traded after receiving the franchise tag, but that’s off the table for now. The Bengals are going to make another run with Joe Burrow having as many options at receiver as possible.
  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    According to Laine, the Bucs will sign Evans even if it puts a strain on the team financially. GM Jason Licht said “We’re going to do whatever we can to make sure that he’s a Buc.” It makes perfect sense as Evans finished the 2023 season with his 10th straight 1,000-yard campaign. The Bucs are also trying to figure out how to bring back Baker Mayfield who had the best season of his career in 2023. The fact remains though, Evans is a cornerstone player and that’s who they’re looking to have back by any means necessary.
  • LV Wide Receiver #17
    “He’s a Raider,” was Telesco’s unequivocal Tuesday comment at the Combine. Adams has seemed disgruntled for most of his two years in the Mojave Desert, especially before Josh McDaniels was fired last fall. But he appeared to operate with a new energy and enthusiasm under since-promoted interim coach Antonio Pierce. Quarterback remains a major issue headed into the 2024 season, though the Silver and Black seem to be planning to move on from 2023 fill-in man Aidan O’Connell.
  • MIN Wide Receiver #18
    “You’ve got a blue (chip) player, blue (chip) person,” Adofo-Mensah said. “You try and keep as many of those as you can.” It’s unsurprising rhetoric even though the sides have been at extension loggerheads for a year now. Adofo-Mensah’s denial probably won’t completely quash Jefferson trade rumors, especially if he remains unsigned beyond 2024 when the draft rolls around. But the most likely outcome for an elite player like Jefferson is staying put at a premium with the team that drafted him.
  • MIN Quarterback #8
    “I think Kirk Cousins wants to be a Viking, and we’re gonna work to make that happen,” O’Connell said Tuesday during a presser at the NFL Combine. A soon-to-be free agent, Cousins — coming off a torn Achilles — will certainly be pursued by QB-needy teams. The Vikings should be considered the favorite to keep Cousins, 35, for at least one more season after he meshed well in O’Connell’s offensive scheme in 2022 and 2023. Cousins on Monday posted a video on social media showing him dropping back and throwing a football four months after suffering his Achilles injury. He remains iffy to be 100 percent recovered by the start of the regular season.
