  • CLG Quarterback
    Breer said Denver’s front office has done a lot of work evaluating Nix as a potential franchise quarterback. They’ve also met with Michael Penix and according to Peyton Manning, the team remains “very interested” in J.J. McCarthy, who likely won’t be on the board when the Broncos pick at 12. Without a second round pick, the Broncos will need to decide whether to go all in on a QB in the first round. The game-managing Nix would seemingly be a good fit for Sean Payton’s check-down passing offense. No one threw more running back screen passes in 2023 than Russell Wilson in the Denver offense. The Rotoworld crew on Tuesday talked about the best landing spots for Nix, who has also been connected to the Rams as Matthew Stafford enters his age-36 season.
  • CLG Quarterback
    Manning, a former Super Bowl champion with the Broncos, explained the Broncos’ interest in McCarthy. He said, “I know Denver is very interested in him and it sounded like a place he’d love to come to but it’s a little bit out of his control.” The Broncos currently hold pick No. 12 in the NFL Draft and would likely need to trade up to select McCarthy with growing interest in the 21-year-old prospect at the top of the draft. Denver recently acquired Zach Wilson at quarterback, but that shouldn’t stop them from being aggressive in a trade up if the team likes McCarthy.
  • PHI Defensive Back #34
    Rodgers will return to the field in 2024 after serving a season-long suspension for violating the league’s gambling policy. He’ll be able to participate in team activities immediately. Rodgers looks to provide depth in an Eagles’ defensive backfield that needed help severely. He also serves as a kick returner.
  • CLG Quarterback
    The Patriots, meanwhile, remain open to trading down from the No. 3 pick if they get a reasonable offer. So far, the offers for New England’s pick have been “laughable,” according to a report in the Boston Herald. Washington brass seem dead set on landing either Jayden Daniels or Drake Maye with the second pick in the draft, and whoever goes to Washington will likely start Week 1 with little QB competition in house. The Raiders, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo, were among the teams that tested Washington’s willingness to part with the second pick.
  • CLG Quarterback
    The Patriots, per a source that spoke with the Herald about the team’s draft plans, are still waiting on a “serious” offer before they consider trading away their first round pick. New England should have a shot at one of Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels, or J.J. McCarthy if the team stays put at No. 3. Jacoby Brissett, who signed with the Pats last month, would serve as something of a bridge QB option if the team invests in a blue chip quarterback prospect.
  • CIN Quarterback #6
    Browning filled in admirably for Joe Burrow in 2023, throwing for nearly 2,000 yards and 12 touchdowns over seven starts for Cincinnati. Browning had the league’s seventh highest completion rate over expected and tenth best EPA per drop back as the Bengals went 4-3 in his starts. He completed 70 percent of his passes in 2023. Browning, 28, could serve a crucial function for the Cincy offense considering Burrow’s lengthy injury history.
  • KC Wide Receiver #19
    Veach’s comment suggests Rashee Rice could be facing a lengthy suspension for allegedly causing a six-car crash while racing his Lamborghini with another driver in March. Toney, a healthy scratch during Kansas City’s Super Bowl run last year, has been working with Patrick Mahomes in Texas this offseason along with other Chiefs pass catchers. “It doesn’t do anyone any good unless you stay healthy. But the kid has always worked hard here for us and I know he’s been down there with Pat and I think it’s a matter of him staying healthy and I think if he can do that, he can really do a lot of great things in this offense,” Veach said. Toney, 25, has been listed on the injury report in 19 of his 21 games as a Chief. Constant nagging injuries have severely limited his availability, and even when he has been healthy, the team has used him as a rotational player. Toney could default into a solid early-season role if Rice is suspended for multiple games though.
  • NYJ Quarterback #8
    With the team’s Zach Wilson Experiment ending this week with the former first rounder’s trade to Denver, Cimini suggested the Jets could take a QB of the future in the 2024 NFL Draft. Tulane’s Michael Pratt and Florida State’s Jordan Travis took pre-draft visits to the Jets and general manager Joe Douglas “sounds like he wants to take a quarterback” in the draft, according to Cimini. Aaron Rodgers, 40, who missed the entire 2023 season with an Achilles injury, has said he wants to play up to four more seasons, but he’s only signed with the Jets through the 2024 season. “If it falls apart with Rodgers, they will go into next year’s draft like the current Broncos and Minnesota Vikings — desperate,” Cimini said. In Green Bay, Rodgers didn’t take it well when the Packers drafted Jordan Love in the 2020 draft as Rodgers’ heir apparent. Taking a QB in this year’s draft might cause strife in the Jets locker room.
  • SF Wide Receiver #11
    Aiyuk continues to be the subject of offseason trade rumors as he prepares to head into the final year of his rookie contract. Set to earn just over $14 million on his fifth-year extension, Aiyuk, who totaled 75-1,342-7 last season, is looking for a long-term extension this offseason — whether it’s from the 49ers or someone else. Unfortunately, the 49ers are short on cap space and also on the verge of needing to extend Brock Purdy in the very near future. Any talks between the two sides as far as an extension is concerned have been kept under wraps, as we have little to go on as far as where they are in the process. The NFL Draft is just days away, so it’s possible those conversations will pick up after this week. Until we hear otherwise, Aiyuk could be a prime candidate for a holdout of a new deal isn’t in place by camp. This remains a wait-and-see situation.
  • DEN Quarterback #2
    The real story here may be the phenomenally down-bad quarterback room that is being constructed in Denver. Wilson joins the likes of Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci in the Mile High City, forming a trio that’s sure to instill confidence in any defense they face in a given week. Of course, the Broncos are still expected to add a quarterback of note at some point in this week’s NFL Draft, but the optics are hilarious for the time being. Wilson, who was drafted by the Jets with the No. 2 overall pick in 2021, was given ample opportunities to succeed over the last three years but consistently fell well short of the mark for being even a passable NFL quarterback. For better or worse, head coach Robert Saleh stuck by Wilson until it was just no longer reasonable to do so. He was eventually benched in favor of Tim Boyle and Trevor Siemian after going 4-7 over 11 starts, spelling what would be the eventual end of his time in New York. Boasting a line of 6,293-23-25 over 34 career games, Wilson is officially a reclamation project who may not have more than a summer to prove to Sean Payton that he can contribute to an NFL franchise. According to The Athletics’ Dianna Russini, the Broncos had been eyeing a potential trade for Wilson for weeks, and they believe he still has “tons of talent and potential.” The Jets will reportedly pay close to $2.75 million of Wilson’s salary for the upcoming season.
