Football Morning in America

Peter King reviews the biggest NFL storylines following an eventful Week 3 in Football Morning in America.

Latest Player News

All Player News
  • NYJ Quarterback #2
    Cimini stated that head coach Robert Saleh is “coming off as a Zach apologist, and that doesn’t play well in the locker room.” The Jets QB situation continues to unravel with Zach Wilson’s struggles. Cimini explained the team’s stout defense is especially irked and there is tension in the locker room. Trevor Siemian was signed, but that barely helps the QB issues without Aaron Rodgers. Wilson’s play has set the locker room on fire and Saleh has a decision to make about the non-improving third-year QB.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #12
    Smith was a sixth-round pick of the Panthers and played two seasons for them before getting released prior to this season. He joins a Titans team with a lackluster receiving corps behind DeAndre Hopkins. Notably, the Titans also placed RB Julius Chestnut on injured reserve, potentially opening up an offensive spot for Smith soon.
  • FA Quarterback #7
    In a letter to Jets GM Joe Douglas, Kaepernick says he would be “honored and extremely grateful for the opportunity” to lead the team’s practice squad. The letter was interestingly released by rapper J. Cole and contains Kaepernick’s arguments on why he would be a good addition for the Jets. He added Jim and John Harbaugh, Chip Kelly, and Mark Davis as references in the message. The 35-year-old last played for the 49ers in 2016, staying in the limelight for his social justice activities and workouts to return to play over the years.
  • FA Wide Receiver #86
    According to KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson, RB Darrell Henderson also worked out for Seattle in addition to Austin. The Seahawks seem to be looking to add offensive weapons for depth. Austin was also a returner in his NFL career and could add value there.
  • CAR Safety #25
    Woods has been Carolina’s starting safety, but could miss up to 4-6 weeks. The Panthers’ secondary is already missing Jaycee Horn, and now Woods’ absence will thin the unit even more.
  • NO Wide Receiver #10
    For the first time in his career, Smith won’t be a Saint. The sixth-year veteran showed flashes during his time in New Orleans, but injuries have kept him from reaching his full potential. He’ll be looking for a new team as he recovers from a groin injury he suffered in training camp.
  • Running Back #37
    The Vikings have released RB Myles Gaskin.
    The long time Dolphin is a free agent again after not being able to stick with the Vikings. Gaskin has not received a touch this regular season and will now be a free agent.
  • FA Running Back #35
    Jackson, who started Week 1 for the Colts, lands in Cleveland to provide depth at running back. In his Week 1 start he didn’t fare well rushing 13 times for 14 yards and losing two fumbles. The Browns also signed TE Devin Asiasi to the practice squad
  • BAL Linebacker #8
    With Baltimore experiencing multiple injuries on their defense, they turned to a veteran to help plug some holes. Van Noy, 32, played for the Chargers last season, appearing in all 17 games with 13 starts. He recorded five sacks, eight tackles for loss and nine quarterback hits while playing 70 percent of Los Angeles’ defensive snaps. While he will start out on the practice squad, the expectation is the veteran could be elevated to the active roster in a couple weeks if he can quickly get up to speed.
  • NYG Tackle #78
    Thomas was also quick to caution that he has not yet practiced in pads since the Giants just had a walk through so far this week. When the team practices in pads on Thursday, he’ll have a better sense of his availability for Monday night against the Seahawks, but he feels good and is expecting to be out there. Provided that Thomas is able to get back on the field, the team will be able to move Evan Neal back to right tackle and improve the overall performance of an offensive line unit that has really let the team down so far.
