  • ATL Quarterback #18
    WSB’s Zach Klein reports the Falcons are expected to play Week 1 at home against the Steelers.
    The Steelers’ current offensive coordinator is the Falcons’ former head coach, Arthur Smith. He will get a chance to debut Pittsburgh’s new offense with Russell Wilson or Justin Fields at the helm against his former team. Meanwhile, Kirk Cousins will likely make his Falcons debut in this game, after signing a four-year, $180 million deal with the team. Though Atlanta took Michael Penix Jr. in the draft, Cousins is still expected to be the starter for this season. His return off an Achilles injury, along with Arthur Smith’s new offense, will be the storylines for this game.
  • KC Tackle #64
    Chiefs OT Wanya Morris was arrested on Thursday and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession in Johnson County, Kansas.
    Teammate Jason Godrick was also arrested with Morris, as the two were reportedly booked at the Johnson County Adult Detention Center around 2 A.M. Friday morning. Both players have since posted bond and were released, with their court appearances scheduled for May 23. It continues to be a rough offseason for the defending Super Bowl champions, who are dealing with the legal issues Rashee Rice has found himself in, and controversial comments recently made by kicker Harrison Butker. Morris is expected to compete with rookie Kingsley Suamataia for the starting left tackle job this offseason. Both players could be subject to discipline from the NFL depending on how the rest of this shakes out.
  • FA Running Back #29
    Chiefs released RB La’Mical Perine.
    Perine appeared in three games for the Chiefs last season and drew the start in a meaningless Week 18 game, where he totaled 109 yards from scrimmage against the Chargers. It was the most run Perine had seen since 2020, and he failed to take a regular season snap in 2022. The former fourth-round pick will be 26 at the start of this season and has a career rushing line of 94-340-2. He could earn another chance to compete for a job this offseason, but he’s unlikely to offer much fantasy upside regardless of landing spot.
  • KC Tackle #64
    Chiefs OT Wanya Morris and rookie OT Kingsley Suamataia are expected to compete for the starting left tackle job in camp.
    Morris was drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of last year’s draft but played sparingly behind veteran Donovan Smith. He did manage to start four games on the year, allowing two sacks on 20 pressures in those starts, but won’t be handed the job heading into Week 1. Suamataia, who was drafted in the second round of this year’s draft, is expected to compete with Morris for the starting gig and has experience at both left and right tackle in college. It’s possible this gets settled before the end of training camp to ensure the eventual starter sees plenty of snaps with the first-team before the season kicks off against the Ravens.
  • MIN Tight End #87
    T.J. Hockenson (knee) said he hasn’t “really put a timeline” on his return from last year’s season-ending knee injury.
    Hockenson suffered a torn ACL and MCL in last year’s Week 16 loss to the Lions. The veteran tight end said he and the team are “taking it day by day, week by week” and noted that there are “so many variables” that one can go through during the rehab process. Hockenson also added he’s “doing really good right now,” which is an encouraging sign for the Vikings and fantasy managers. Still, the late timing of his injury could result in him missing time early in the season as he continues his recovery. The Vikings have Josh Oliver and Johnny Mundt both on the roster and also signed Robert Tonyan to a contract earlier this week. If they don’t feel like Hockenson is ready to go, they have the players in place to wait out his recovery should it continue into the regular season.
  • PIT Running Back #22
    The Pittsburgh Post Gazette’s Brian Batko Najee Harris has changed his diet and workout routine to lose weight ahead of the 2024 NFL season.
    Harris has reportedly lost seven pounds this offseason and has been “almost obsessively clean” with his diet in recent months. “It’s all fueling his fire to have an even better season than last year and prove a lot of people wrong,” said Josh Scott, Harris’ trainer. “There’s a lot of people that hate on him for whatever reason, but he’s been as consistent as you can be. He’s durable. I think he’s going to continue with that. I mean, contract season, that pretty much speaks for itself.” The Steelers this month decided not to pick up Harris’ fifth-year option, though the team has not ruled out striking a deal with Harris to keep him in Pittsburgh beyond the 2024 season. He’ll likely split the backfield workload this season with the more explosive, efficient Jaylen Warren.
  • MIA Quarterback #1
    CBS Sports’ Jonathan Jones believes it’s “unclear” if Tua Tagovailoa will participate in voluntary OTAs.
    Jones said Tua, lobbying for a long-term deal with the Dolphins, has been “absent for the large majority of voluntary offseason work since the Dolphins reported back April 15" and might not join his teammates at voluntary workouts starting Monday. Tagovailoa said in April that he would not miss any offseason workouts while working out a contract with the team. Dolphins general manager Chris Grier has said he wants to sign Tua to a longer term deal — despite Tua’s shortcomings in an otherwise productive Miami offense. This situation will likely be resolved in the coming weeks. If it isn’t, Tagovailoa could face daily fines of $40,000 if he sits out some or all of training camp. The team could save those fines if it sees fit, Jones said.
  • Falcons released EDGE Ade Ogundeji.
    Ogundeji was a fifth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2021. As a rookie, he totaled 33 tackles, five TFLs, and one sack and posted 42 tackles, three TFLs, and two sacks in 2022. An ankle injury suffered last August ended his 2023 campaign before it ever began. Ogundeji has appeared in 32 games and made 27 career starts and could catch on with another team if he’s fully recovered from his injury.
  • FA Defensive Lineman #90
    Michael Brockers retired from the NFL after 11 seasons.
    The Rams selected Brockers No. 14 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. He spent nine seasons with the team before joining the Lions in 2021. Brockers racked up 57 tackles for loss or no gain over his 11-year career, bullying linemen as a run-stopper and part-time pass rusher. He spent 2023 as a free agent before announcing his retirement on social media this week.
  • NE Wide Receiver #11
    Tyquan Thornton said he’s added weight in hopes of improving his performance and preventing injury.
    Thornton stated his aim is to play at 190 pounds this season, both to improve his on-field performance and reduce his likelihood of suffering another impact-related injury. Thornton has failed to clear 0.80 yards per route run in his first two seasons, ostensibly slowed by an August 2022 clavicle injury and an August 2023 shoulder injury. Thornton must prove he belongs on an NFL roster this year.
  • JAX Safety #38
    Jaguars signed S Terrell Edmunds, formerly of the Titans.
    Edmunds was traded from the Eagles to the Titans last season and totaled 48 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one interception while splitting time with the two teams. The former first-round pick was let go by the Steelers after his rookie contract expired at the end of the 2022 season and is now set to play for his third team in two years. He’ll have a chance to provide added depth to the Jaguars’ secondary but is unlikely to be viewed as a starter at this point. In addition to Edmunds, they also signed cornerback Tre Flowers and linebacker Ty Summers.
