  • BUF Running Back #0
    Hines tore his ACL last summer and missed the entirety of the 2023 season. He was expected to serve as the primary kick returner in addition to sporadic usage in the offense, the bulk of which would have likely come in the red zone. Buffalo brought in three separate running backs last season but now carry only James Cook and Darrynton Evans on the active roster with all of Ty Johnson, Latavius Murray, and Damien Harris unrestricted free agents heading into the new league year. It appears as if the Bills will be buyers at the running back position for the third consecutive year.
  • NFL Commissioner
    The league made the leap to a 17-game season in 2021 but could soon be pushing to add an 18th game. As Florio points out in his article, an 18th game “likely won’t come until the next labor deal,” but his “first hint” of the possibility came when Browns GM Andrew Berry mentioned the Browns and other teams are proposing delaying the trade deadline by two weeks in anticipation of an 18th game being added. The current CBA isn’t set to expire until March 2030, so this isn’t expected to happen anytime soon, but it sounds like the league adding an extra game is all but a done deal — even if years away.
  • Benson checked in at six feet tall and weighed 216 pounds. The former Seminole’s 4.39 ranked as the third-fast time amongst all backs, while his 9.77 RAS is elite for the overall position. Considered by some to be the top back of the class, Benson’s strong showing at the combine could be enough to earn him early Day 2 draft capital and a chance to contribute early in the season.
  • FA Quarterback
    Penix suffered two torn ACLs plus a severe shoulder injury during his six college seasons. The 2023 Heisman candidate threw for 9,544 yards, 67 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions during his two seasons with the Huskies after transferring from Indiana at the end of the 2021 season and saw his draft stock take a meteoric rise as a result. Penix opted not to run in the 40-yard dash at the combine but impressed in throwing drills. He should run at Washington’s Pro Day, which has yet to be officially announced.
  • PIT Quarterback #8
    According to Fowler, the Steelers “have started the process of rebuilding Pickett, as the third-year quarterback reportedly met with new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith to begin going over things. Fowlers notes that the Steelers’ overall offensive woes under former offensive coordinator Matt Canada may have been enough to buy Pickett one more season, with the hopes that Smith can get more out of him. Pickett has thrown for 4,474 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions in 25 career games. The former No. 20 overall pick has looked like anything but a first-round talent through two years in the league, but he has at least two more years left on his rookie deal, and the team can exercise his fifth-year option for the 2026 season should they be interested in doing so. While rolling with Pickett seems to go against conventional wisdom, the Steelers may feel incentivized to give him one more opportunity, given the contractual benefits.
  • MIN Linebacker #99
    This doesn’t mean a deal with Hunter won’t get done before free agency opens up, but with the team also attempting to re-sign Kirk Cousins and extend Justin Jefferson, it’s possible Hunter at least makes it to the open market. Jeremy Fowler added that teams are expecting Hunter to seek a deal that pays “well north of $20 million per year,” which would make him amongst the highest paid EDGE rushers i the league. Hunter tallied a career-high 16.5 sacks with the Vikings last season and has totaled 87.5 sacks through his first eight seasons in the league. Hunter will be 29 at the start of next season, and should have no trouble fetching a lucrative deal should he and the Vikings not come to terms on a contract in the coming weeks.
  • CHI Quarterback #1
    The Falcons have been a popular choice amongst those speculating where Fields could land, but Dan Graziano reported the team is eyeing Kirk Cousins as their “top QB solution” should the veteran come available. Fields is widely believed to be available for a second or third-round pick, which sounds like a more than affordable price for a former first-rounder who can remain under team control through 2025 — assuming his fifth-year option is exercised. Whether or not Fields lands in Minnesota will be directly correlated with where Cousins goes in free agency, while the Steelers and Raiders could simply look to acquire him as an upgrade over the quarterbacks they already have in place. While there’s no deadline for the Bears to get a deal done to move Fields, it would make sense for all involved to trade him before the start of free agency.
  • MIN Quarterback #8
    As Graziano points out in his article over at ESPN, Cousins has a “very specific idea” for what he wants in his next contract, and the Vikings have been unwilling to match it thus far. Graziano also reports that he gets a sense the team wants Cousins to return, meaning a departure is anything but certain. Currently holding the No. 8 overall pick in this year’s draft, the Falcons could be in range — or put themselves in range — to draft one of the top prospects of this year’s class. However, with roughly $40 million in cap space on their hands, perhaps a move to Cousins could better position them for the next few seasons while they round out their roster at other positions.
  • MIA Defensive Tackle #94
    Wilkins is among the league’s top defensive tackles and is fresh off a 65 tackle season that also included a career-high nine sacks. According to Fowler, the Dolphins and Wilkins are “keeping options open,” but the expectation is that Wilkins will test free agency. The Dolphins are struggling with cap space as they currently sit at roughly $28.4 million over the cap, per Spotrac.com. Should he officially hit the open market, Wilkins will draw plenty of interest from teams heading into his sixth season.
  • The 4.21 official 40-yard dash time set a combine record, edging out John Ross’ time of 4.22. Worthy’s combine testing almost assuredly boosted his draft stock into the first round, with the biggest hurdle being the multitude of first-round grades at the wide receiver position this year. The former Texas wide receiver was clocked at a blistering 22.7 mph with the ball in his hands in 2022.
