  • FA Offensive Coordinator
    Per Thamel, new, first-time Bruins head coach DeShaun Foster wants to run an NFL system and was seeking a “splash hire.” Bieniemy is certainly that, though it’s stunning he couldn’t generate continued NFL interest after his one-year stint in Washington. Perceived as pass-happy and “old school” in his demeanor, Bieniemy has evidently worn out his NFL welcome for the time being. He has long been connected to college openings, but always as a head coach. It’s quite possible Bieniemy’s return to the college sidelines — he previously worked for UCLA and Colorado — is a one-year sojourn before returning to the pros.
  • CIN Wide Receiver #5
    It was reported earlier in the month by The Athletic’s Paul Dehner that “all expectations” were that the Bengals would tag Higgins, who was set to be an unrestricted free agent. Higgins is expected to net about $21.8 million on the franchise tag as he and the Bengals will now look to run things back for at least one more season. It’s possible Higgins and the Bengals eventually come to an agreement on a long-term extension, but this extension buys the two sides extra time to figure things out — assuming Higgins is willing to play on the tag. Higgins has been a highly productive receiver through his first four years in the league, totaling 257 receptions for 3,684 yards and 24 touchdowns. Injuries plagued his 2023 campaign, but Higgins still managed to find the end zone five times and averaged a career-high 15.6 YPR on the season. He’ll be a high-end WR2 for fantasy next season.
  • NE Wide Receiver #84
    Bourne is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 8 against the Dolphins. He was off to a good start to the year before going down, posting 37 receptions for 406 yards and four touchdowns, and is expected to have decent interest on the open market. Bourne will be 29 at the start of next season, but it’s hard to envision him walking into a significant role next season — even if fully healthy.
  • NYJ Quarterback #2
    It’s safe to say Johnson isn’t a Zach Wilson guy. In addition to emphasizing the Jets’ need for a backup, Johnson took things a step further by saying, “We didn’t have [a backup quarterback] last year.” The Jets are almost certain to move on from Wilson, whether via trade or release, as the former No. 2 overall pick has struggled to live up to his loft draft capital. Through 34 NFL games, Wilson has thrown for 6,293 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 25 interceptions while completing a mere 57 percent of his passes. It’s possible a team offers a late Day 3 pick for the soon-to-be reclamation project, but regardless, it’s evident the Jets are eager to improve their backup quarterback situation this offseason.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #15
    It took a while for Robinson to leave his mark on the 2023 season, but the veteran receiver, who didn’t register a catch until Week 9, finished the year with a line of 26-371-4 while averaging a solid 14.3 YPR. Robinson scored in four consecutive games for the Rams last season and saw four games in which he was targeted five or more times. As long as Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp are there to absorb the majority of the targets, Robinson will have little to no upside as a fantasy asset. However, he could be worth a late-round flyer in best ball leagues where managers aren’t forced to mull over start/sit decisions.
  • FA Cornerback #25
    The Dolphins selected Howard in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The soon-to-be 31-year-old corner has spent his entire career with the Dolphins, earning four Pro Bowl nods and one First-Team All-Pro nomination over that span. Injuries limited Howard to 13 games in 2023, and he managed just one interception while earning a PFF coverage grade of 51.9 — the lowest mark of his career. The ball-hawking corner has twice led the league in interceptions and should have a relatively strong market despite his age. The decision to cut Howard before June 1st will result in a dead cap hit of just over $21 million for the Dolphins.
  • FA Defensive End #91
    Ogbah signed a four-year, $65 million deal with the Dolphins in 2022, with an opt-out for the team after the 2023 season. Ogbah can be released without a dead cap hit, saving the Dolphins up to $13.7 million in cap space. Ogbah totaled 19 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 15 games last season and managed just one sack through nine games in 2022. The veteran will be 30 years old at the start of next season and has two nine-sack seasons on his resumé. With so many teams in need of pass rushers, Ogbah should have no trouble finding a new home before next season.
  • NFL Commissioner
    That’s a shocking uptick from what most NFL analysts believed the cap would be for the upcoming year. Even the teams themselves were reportedly expecting the cap to be in the neighborhood of $242 million and $243 million. The cap figure does not include the additional $74M per club for player benefits either. Player benefits include Performance Based Pay and benefits for retired players. This surprise should afford some of the teams that were likely to struggle to get under the cap some extra wiggle room this offseason.
  • TB Quarterback #6
    The Stroud noted that nothing is imminent, all signs point to the two sides figuring things out. Previous reports have said both camps are motivated to get a deal done. The Bucs also have the franchise tag as an option. Mayfield’s NFL career was circling the drain after the Panthers cut him in 2022. The Rams picked him up for a few starts to close the year and then Tampa Bay tabbed him as a bridge option for the 2023 season. Mayfield surpassed all expectations in his first year as a Buccaneer and now appears to be the team’s long-term answer at quarterback. After offensive coordinator Dave Canales left Tampa Bay for a head coaching gig in Carolina, the Bucs tabbed former Rams offensive coordinator as his replacement. Mayfield worked with Coen during his brief stint in LA. The hiring is another sign that GM Jason Licht is prepping for Mayfield’s return.
  • NO Quarterback #4
    Per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the restructure is expected to save the Saints around $23 million by converting a portion of his $30 million base salary into a signing bonus. This move has been expected for a few weeks and locks the Saints into at least one more season with Carr at the helm. Depending on the details of the restructure, it could force the Saints to roll with Carr in 2025 as well. Though committing to Carr for two more years is a risk, the Saints don’t have any easy choices when it comes to getting under the salary cap this offseason. Before this move, the Saints were sitting at $75 million over the cap for 2024.
