  • CIN Wide Receiver #1
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Ja’Marr Chase is in attendance at Bengals minicamp.
    Chase skipped the team’s OTAs as he pushes for a new contract with the Bengals. Chase, 24, is entering his fourth NFL season. The team picked up his fifth year contract option. It’s only a matter of time before the two sides come to a long-term agreement that will keep chase in Cincinnati for years to come. Chase in 2023 managed 100 receptions and over 1,200 yards despite Joe Burrow missing much of the year with lingering injuries. His 2023 receiving success rate (57 percent) was the highest of his NFL career.
  • WAS Tight End
    Commanders signed second-round TE Ben Sinnott to a four-year contract.
    The Commanders nabbed Sinnott with the No. 53 overall pick in the draft, making him the TE2 of the class. Sinnott is a versatile player who was a walk-on fullback for Kansas State before breaking out as a tight end later in his collegiate career. Zach Ertz, reunited with Kliff Kingsbury in Washington, should hold the starting tight end job for the Commanders, but Sinnott will see the field in a variety of roles as a rookie. He could emerge as a TE2 in the second half of the season but can be left off most redraft rosters for now.
  • WAS Quarterback
    Commanders signed No. 2 overall pick QB Jayden Daniels to a four-year, $37.75 million contract.
    Daniels’ deal is fully guaranteed and includes a $24.3 million signing bonus. The 2023 Heisman Trophy winner has impressed early this offseason and should be closing in on the starting job over Marcus Mariota at some point in training camp. Daniels threw for 3812-40-4 in his final season with LSU and added another 1,134 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground. The dual-threat quarterback hopes to help a new regime usher in a winning culture that’s largely been lacking in Washington since they won the Super Bowl in 1991. Daniels’ rushing ability makes him a legitimate threat to finish as a top-12 fantasy quarterback in his rookie season if he and the offense can gel in their first year under Dan Quinn and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury.
  • FA Defensive Back #36
    Chargers signed S Tony Jefferson.
    Jefferson last played for the Giants in 2022, totaling 22 tackles and one pass breakup in nine games. The 32-year-old vet played four seasons with the Ravens under head coach John Harbaugh and will now join Jim Harbaugh as a member of the Chargers. Chargers GM Joe Hortiz also spent time with the Jefferson, as Hortiz worked with the Ravens in multiple roles from 1998 to 2023. Jefferson can provide a veteran presence to the Chargers’ secondary but is unlikely to earn a significant role outside of making the occasional spot start.
  • LAR Running Back
    Rams head coach Sean McVay said RB Blake Corum has “really stood out” in offseason practices.
    Corum, the 83rd overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, has drawn consistent praise from LA coaches over the past couple months as incumbent starter Kyren Williams deals with a lingering foot injury that has cost him all of OTAs and minicamp. “On the offensive side, I’ve been pleased with a lot of guys but Blake Corum has really stood out,” McVay said. “Mature beyond his years. I love the way that he handles himself. I love even more how when there’s been a couple of things that didn’t go the way we wanted, how he responded the next play. The mental toughness that you see from him.” It would be something of an upset if Corum didn’t at least split backfield work with Williams to start the regular season — assuming Williams is fully recovered. Williams remains one of the riskiest picks in all of fantasy football.
  • SEA Wide Receiver #14
    Seahawks head coach Mike Macdonald said the team wants to make DK Metcalf a “moving target” in 2024.
    Macdonald told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero he wants to get the ball to Metcalf “a lot” this season and said new offensive coordinator Ryan Grub would use Metcalf across the formation. “He’s a big, imposing, fast, powerful receiver,” Macdonald said, adding the team wants to ensure opposing defenses have to “account for [Metcalf] at all times but it’s gonna be hard to find him.” Metcalf ran 84 percent of his pass routes from the boundary in 2023, in line with his career rate. He saw only 12 targets from the slot last season. More creative usage for Metcalf — including, presumably, more slot work — could be a boost to his fantasy prospects in a Seattle offense that could be surprisingly pass heavy under Grubb, for former OC at the University of Washington.
  • MIA Defensive End #93
    Dolphins signed DE Calais Campbell, formerly of the Falcons.
    Campbell has mulled retirement for the last several seasons but is now set to join the Dolphins on what is likely a one-year deal. The soon-to-be 38-year-old totaled 6.5 sacks and 10 TFLs in his lone season with the Falcons and is now ready to return to Miami, where he played in college ball from 2005-2007. Campbell should provide immediate help along the interior for a defense that lost defensive tackle Christian Wilkins to the Raiders via free agency and continues to play at a high enough level to be an impact player. Amongst defensive linemen who played at least 300 snaps last season, Calais ranked 39th with a defensive grade of 80.0.
  • JAX Quarterback #16
    Jaguars signed QB Trevor Lawrence to a five-year, $275 million contract extension.
    Lawrence gets $200 million in guaranteed money with this deal, with $142 million guaranteed at signing. His $55 million AAV ties Joe Burrow for the highest of any player in the league. It’s a steep but not surprising price to pay for Lawrence, who was drafted No. 1 overall by the Jaguars in 2021. Lawrence has thrown for 11,770 yards, 58 touchdowns, and 39 interceptions in 50 career games and has led his team to a 17-16 record in two years under current head coach Doug Pederson. Lawrence will play under the terms of his rookie deal in 2024 and under a fifth-year option in 2025, meaning the base salary for his new deal won’t kick in until 2026.
  • NO EDGE #99
    ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports Chase Young (neck) “received a positive report from renowned neck specialist Dr. Robert Watkins” and he “plans to participate in training camp.”
    Issues concerning Young’s neck became public shortly after he signed with the Saints, who said they were aware of the injury prior to signing the former No. 2 overall pick. Young totaled 7.5 sacks and seven TFLs last season while splitting time between the Commanders and the 49ers. He underwent a surgical procedure to correct the issue and is expected to undergo more tests in about six weeks, per Fowler. Young signed a one-year, $13 million contract with the Saints and is hoping a successful 2024 can lead to a big payday next offseason.
  • SEA Defensive Lineman #93
    Seahawks restructured DL Dre’Mont Jones’ contract.
    The Seahawks signed Jones to a three-year, $51 million contract last offseason. He went on to appear in all 17 games for them while totaling 4.5 sacks and five TFLs but did little to help a defense that allowed the second-most rushing yards per game and the third-most yards overall. According to The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta, Jones’ restructured deal creates $7.4 million in cap space for the Seahawks, while they also added two void years for 2026 and 2027.
  • GB Tackle
    Packers signed No. 25 overall pick OT Jordan Morgan to a four-year, $14.185 million contract.
    The Packers replaced long-time starting LT David Bakhtiari with 2022 seventh-round draft pick, LT Rasheed Walker last year, who admirably produced a 74.7 PFF pass-blocking grade. Walker’s 56.3 PFF run-blocking grade reflects his incomplete profile though, giving the well-rounded Morgan an advantage over the incumbent. Morgan’s first-round draft capital also works in his favor. Packers coaches are surely hoping Morgan asserts himself as the team’s best blindside protector before Week 1 kicks off.
