  • JAX Running Back #1
    Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said treating Travis Etienne as a workhorse back is “not the recipe” he prefers.
    “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.
  • HOU Running Back #33
    Texans re-signed RB Dare Ogunbowale to a one-year contract.
    A core special teamer and occasional third-down back, it doesn’t bode particularly well for 29-year-old Ogunbowale’s odds of keeping his 53-man roster spot that the Texans waited six weeks into free agency to re-sign him.
  • CLG Quarterback
    ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reports there is a “strong belief by some in the league” the Giants covet UNC QB Drake Maye.
    Sitting at No. 6, the Giants are one of the teams with the most realistic means of trading into the top four — almost certainly at No. 4 via Arizona — but landing Maye would require either the Patriots or Commanders wanting J.J. McCarthy, making Maye the QB4 after Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels and McCarthy. They also figure to face trade up competition from the Vikings, amongst others. Maye ending up in the Big Apple is far from implausible, but it is not the most likely outcome.
  • CLG Tight End
    ESPN’s Rich Cimini believes the Jets’ selection at No. 10 overall could come down to Georgia TE Brock Bowers or an offensive tackle.
    That’s if one of the draft’s “big three” at receiver doesn’t fall to No. 10. Rome Odunze is the only remote possibility there. The Bowers-to-New York smoke has been billowing, but Gang Green also badly needs to shore up 40-year-old Aaron Rodgers’ protection. It’s a critical week for all 32 teams, but the Jets are amongst those with the least margin for error.
  • CLG Quarterback
    ESPN’s Mike Reiss reports the Patriots are considered “most likely” to remain at No. 3 overall and select a quarterback.
    Lead personnel man Eliot Wolf has declared New England “open for business” at No. 3, but the consensus of Reiss’ sources is that the Pats will remain at No. 3 and select one of Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels or J.J. McCarthy. That’s “blockbuster trade offer.” This was, of course, strongly telegraphed when the Pats gave Mac Jones away to the Jaguars via trade. We will know the Pats’ next attempted franchise player this time next week.
  • DAL Quarterback #4
    Dak Prescott said he and the Cowboys have not begun negotiations for a new contract extension.
    Prescott is in the final year of his current deal and is currently set to earn $55.455 million in 2024. While Prescott would be more than happy to take home that large sum of cash this season, his contract, as it stands right now, is leaving the Cowboys strapped for cash with extensions for other players — particularly CeeDee Lamb — coming down the line. Prescott said he doesn’t “necessarily” want to be the highest-paid quarterback in the league, and that he wants to do what’s best for the team. If he and the team are able to hammer out an extension, it would almost certainly lower his 2024 cap number and free the Cowboys up to get other deals done.
  • NYJ Quarterback #2
    Jets GM Joe Douglas said there’s “just no news to report” regarding a potential trade of QB Zach Wilson.
    The Jets are reportedly waiting for an acceptable offer for the former No. 2 overall pick but there’s presumably a significant delta between what the Jets consider acceptable vs. what the league considers. Wilson, who has been a regular participant in offseason activities over the last three years was noticeably absent from voluntary workouts this week. He was given permission to speak with other teams about a potential trade, but it doesn’t appear anything significant came from that. If Wilson isn’t traded, the Jets are reportedly ready to keep him for the upcoming season.
  • JAX Guard #69
    Jaguars re-signed LG Tyler Shatley.
    The 32-year-old veteran has been with the Jags since 2014. He has never been the team’s first option at any position but can fill in at either guard spot or center when needed. Shatley has started 18 regular season games over the past two years, all of which came at left guard. He will return for his flexible backup role in 2024.
  • CLG Quarterback
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Jayden Daniels “has had an interest” in places other than Washington.
    Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Rapoport was quick to reiterate his belief that Daniels remains the favorite to be drafted second overall to the Commanders. However, it’s clear oddsmakers and mock drafters were too quick to call it a done deal. North Carolina’s Drake Maye would likely be the pick if the Commanders go in a different direction. Maye can’t match Daniels’ elite rushing potential but does have incredible arm strength and posted strong passing numbers in his two seasons as a starter. The Patriots hold the third pick and, barring a trade, appear set to take the quarterback Washington passes on.
  • IND Tight End #85
    Colts TE Drew Ogletree was removed from the Commission Exempt List.
    Ogletree had been placed on the list after he was arrested on felony domestic violence charges in late December. The charges against Ogletree were dropped in March. Prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence to move forward with the case. Ogletree, who had nine catches for 147 yards and 2 touchdowns last season, will rejoin the Colts as a rotational player.
  • FA Wide Receiver #17
    Chargers hosted WR DJ Chark for a visit.
    Chark, who had 35 receptions for 525 yards and five touchdowns in Carolina in 2023, would profile as a potential starter for LA. With one 1,000-yard season in seven years in the NFL, Chark, 27, functions strictly as a deep threat. Even if the Chargers take a top wideout in the NFL Draft, Chark could see significant playing time in Greg Roman’s run-first offense.
