  • IND Running Back #28
    The Athletic’s James Boyd reports Jonathan Taylor will have surgery on his thumb.
    This comes as a surprise in the football world as many people didn’t even know Taylor left Week 12 with an injury. The Colts hope to have him back in 2-3 weeks and will look to avoid putting him on IR. Zack Moss will go back to being the Colts’ RB1 for the time being. He’ll be a reliable high-end RB2 in that role until Taylor returns.
  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    The Athletic’s Dianna Russini reports Mike Evans “plans to hit free agency for the first time in his career.”
    According to Russini, the Buccaneers and Evans “are in discussions,” but the veteran receiver “wants to explore his options.” Evans would like to hear from all interested teams before making a decision on where to play, which means his time with the Buccaneers could be coming to an end. Evans played in all 17 games for the Buccaneers last season, totaling 79 receptions for 1,255 yards and 13 touchdowns. Evans has surpassed 1,000 yards in each of his first 10 seasons and will be 31 at the start of next year. His fantasy stock could see a tremendous boost if he were to team up with one of the league’s top quarterbacks this offseason.
  • FA Tight End
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Brock Bowers will not workout at the NFL Scouting Combine.
    Bowers said earlier in the week that he was undecided on whether or not he would work out this week. The consensus TE1 of the class is still recovering from a tightrope surgery he underwent on his injured ankle last season, but should have a chance to work out at Georgia’s pro day on March 13th.
  • DAL Linebacker #55
    The Dallas Morning News’ Calvin Watkins reports Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch is dealing with another neck injury.
    According to Watkins, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones met with Vander Esch’s agent “to discuss his future.” Jones was quoted as saying, “It’s divorced from a decision of football. In his case, football is a big part of his life and his professional life, and his career. It has to do with his long-term well-being and long-term life.” Vander Esch has dealt with a handful of neck injuries in recent years and was placed on injured reserve last November with a season-ending neck injury. Vander Esch, 28, totaled 30 tackles last season and 90 tackles and one sack in 2022. It goes without saying that whether or not Vander Esch continues to play appears very much up in the air.
  • GB Running Back #28
    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein believes the Packers “aren’t likely to re-sign” AJ Dillon.
    Dillon is set to be a free agent this month and will likely be playing elsewhere in 2024. The former second-round pick drastically underperformed expectations in a contract year that saw Aaron Jones miss six games due to injury. Dillon rushed for 613 yards on 178 carries while averaging a career-low 3.4 YPC. Dillon never rushed for more than 76 yards in a game last season and eclipsed 50 yards in just six of 15 games. Profiled as a high-end bruiser back out of Boston College, Dillon has averaged just 2.80 YCO/ATT over the last two seasons while forcing a missed tackle on just 12.1 percent of his rush attempts. Dillon will be 26 at the start of next season and could land a high-profile RB2 role on the right team, but isn’t expected to garner much interest as a lead back.
  • WAS Linebacker #52
    Commanders LB Jamin Davis pled guilty to reckless driving and was sentenced to a suspended 180 day jail sentence, and was ordered to do community service.
    Davis was initially facing 30 days in jail for a reckless driving charge from 2022 in Loudoun County, Virginia, after being sentenced to prison last August. The latest and seemingly final decision in this case is a result of Davis’ appeal of the 30-day sentence. Davis is heading into his fourth season as a pro and has underwhelmed through three years. The Commanders will soon need to decide whether they will exercise his fifth-year option for 2025, as 2024 will be a prove-it year in his first season under new head coach Dan Quinn.
  • LV Coaching Staff #42
    The Athletic’s Matt Barrows reports the 49ers interviewed Raiders safeties coach Gerald Alexander for their defensive coordinator vacancy.
    Alexander joined the Raiders’ staff in late January but could already be on the move. Alexander joined the NFL coaching ranks in 2020 as the Dolphins’ defensive backs coach, and served as the Steelers assistant defensive backs coach from 2022 to 2023. The 49ers don’t appear to be in a rush to fill their defensive coordinator role, as interviews have felt few and far between since the team fired Steve Wilks after the Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs.
  • FA Center #63
    Commanders released C Nick Gates.
    Gates’ release won’t be official until the start of the new league year, but the one-and-done Commanders will be looking for a new home after signing a three-year deal with the team last offseason. One of several underwhelming free agent signings during the Ron Rivera era, Gates was benched for Tyler Larsen after Week 7 but returned to start the final three games of the regular season after Larsen was placed on injured reserve. Gates should find a new landing spot ahead of training camp, but won’t be a lock to make a 53-man roster.
  • FA Cornerback #29
    Patriots released CB J.C. Jackson.
    Jackson has played in just 15 games over the last two seasons and was in the midst of his second stint with the Patriots. During his first four years with the Patriots, Jackson appeared in 62 games while totaling 25 interceptions and earning a Second-Team All-Pro nod in 2021. Jackson signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Chargers during the 2022 offseason but was limited to just five games due to injuries. He was benched in Week 6 of last season against the Broncos and traded to the Patriots soon after. At 28-years-old, Jackson should have a decent market as a once-proven-talent, but may need to prove he can still play on a one-year deal next season.
  • FA Tight End #82
    Commanders released TE Logan Thomas.
    Just hours after the Commanders cut ties with left tackle Charles Leno, Logan Thomas became the latest Commander to get let go. Thomas caught 55 passes for 496 yards and four touchdowns over 16 games and posted a line of 184-1685-14 in four seasons with the team. His 2020 breakout (72-670-6) came in his first season as a full-time starter, as the former quarterback turned tight end enjoyed a bit of a career renaissance after switching positions. A torn ACL limited to Thomas to just six games in 2021, but he’s played in 30 of a possible 34 regular season games since 2022. Thomas will be 33 at the start of next season and could still offer value as roster depth. His release will save the Commanders $6.5 million against the cap.
  • CHI Quarterback #1
    The Athletic’s Jeff Howe reports the “majority opinion” is that the Bears would receive a second or third-round pick in exchange for Justin Fields.
    That is the opinion of eight league executives and coaches. Howe’s sources also unanimously agreed that the Bears will be taking Caleb Williams with the No. 1 overall pick. Though there are still plenty of details to be ironed out, namely where Fields will land, all signs point to the Bears trading him and taking Williams at the top of the draft. Atlanta and Las Vegas are two common destinations tied to Fields. Both teams are desperate for an upgrade at quarterback and are unlikely to land one of the top three prospects in the upcoming draft. Fields has been an elite fantasy option because of his rushing production but needs to improve as a passer to be the face of any franchise. A fresh start with a new coaching staff would be a step in the right direction as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.
