  • 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.
  • KC Cornerback #38
    Sneed, drafted with the 138th pick in 2020 draft, will make around $19 million in 2024. Tagging the standout corner was a near certainty for the back-to-back Super Bowl champion Chiefs, whose defense played a key role in storming through the AFC and beating the 49ers in the Super Bowl this month. Pro Football Focus graded Sneed in 2023 as the 37th best cover corner out of 133 qualifying CBs.
  • FA Wide Receiver #11
    The move will save Kansas City around $12 million against salary cap for 2024. In two seasons with the Chiefs, Valdes-Scantling managed 63 receptions and three touchdowns as a full-time starter in a high-powered passing attack. His lack of productivity over the past two seasons is the stuff of fantasy football legend. He did, however, manage a touchdown grab in KC’s Super Bowl victory over the Niners. Entering his age-30 season, MVS will likely sign elsewhere as a downfield threat with unreliable hands.
  • MIN Quarterback #8
    On ESPN’s “Get Up,” Darlington said he could envisions a scenario in which Cousins, 35, “enters into free agency, finds out what’s out there, and the Vikings decide to match or to move on.” Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said Tuesday that the team was working closely with Cousins’ camp to keep him in Minnesota in 2024. Coming off a late-season Achilles injury, Cousins should still see interest from quarterback-needy teams if he can’t hammer out a deal with the Vikings over the next couple weeks. Atlanta could be among the teams interested in signing Cousins if he becomes available.
  • 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.
