  • GB Running Back #28
    Dillon is set to be a free agent this month and will likely be playing elsewhere in 2024. The former second-round pick drastically underperformed expectations in a contract year that saw Aaron Jones miss six games due to injury. Dillon rushed for 613 yards on 178 carries while averaging a career-low 3.4 YPC. Dillon never rushed for more than 76 yards in a game last season and eclipsed 50 yards in just six of 15 games. Profiled as a high-end bruiser back out of Boston College, Dillon has averaged just 2.80 YCO/ATT over the last two seasons while forcing a missed tackle on just 12.1 percent of his rush attempts. Dillon will be 26 at the start of next season and could land a high-profile RB2 role on the right team, but isn’t expected to garner much interest as a lead back.
  • WAS Linebacker #52
    Davis was initially facing 30 days in jail for a reckless driving charge from 2022 in Loudoun County, Virginia, after being sentenced to prison last August. The latest and seemingly final decision in this case is a result of Davis’ appeal of the 30-day sentence. Davis is heading into his fourth season as a pro and has underwhelmed through three years. The Commanders will soon need to decide whether they will exercise his fifth-year option for 2025, as 2024 will be a prove-it year in his first season under new head coach Dan Quinn.
  • LV Coaching Staff #42
    Alexander joined the Raiders’ staff in late January but could already be on the move. Alexander joined the NFL coaching ranks in 2020 as the Dolphins’ defensive backs coach, and served as the Steelers assistant defensive backs coach from 2022 to 2023. The 49ers don’t appear to be in a rush to fill their defensive coordinator role, as interviews have felt few and far between since the team fired Steve Wilks after the Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs.
  • FA Center #63
    Gates’ release won’t be official until the start of the new league year, but the one-and-done Commanders will be looking for a new home after signing a three-year deal with the team last offseason. One of several underwhelming free agent signings during the Ron Rivera era, Gates was benched for Tyler Larsen after Week 7 but returned to start the final three games of the regular season after Larsen was placed on injured reserve. Gates should find a new landing spot ahead of training camp, but won’t be a lock to make a 53-man roster.
  • FA Cornerback #29
    Jackson has played in just 15 games over the last two seasons and was in the midst of his second stint with the Patriots. During his first four years with the Patriots, Jackson appeared in 62 games while totaling 25 interceptions and earning a Second-Team All-Pro nod in 2021. Jackson signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Chargers during the 2022 offseason but was limited to just five games due to injuries. He was benched in Week 6 of last season against the Broncos and traded to the Patriots soon after. At 28-years-old, Jackson should have a decent market as a once-proven-talent, but may need to prove he can still play on a one-year deal next season.
  • FA Tight End #82
    Just hours after the Commanders cut ties with left tackle Charles Leno, Logan Thomas became the latest Commander to get let go. Thomas caught 55 passes for 496 yards and four touchdowns over 16 games and posted a line of 184-1685-14 in four seasons with the team. His 2020 breakout (72-670-6) came in his first season as a full-time starter, as the former quarterback turned tight end enjoyed a bit of a career renaissance after switching positions. A torn ACL limited to Thomas to just six games in 2021, but he’s played in 30 of a possible 34 regular season games since 2022. Thomas will be 33 at the start of next season and could still offer value as roster depth. His release will save the Commanders $6.5 million against the cap.
  • CHI Quarterback #1
    That is the opinion of eight league executives and coaches. Howe’s sources also unanimously agreed that the Bears will be taking Caleb Williams with the No. 1 overall pick. Though there are still plenty of details to be ironed out, namely where Fields will land, all signs point to the Bears trading him and taking Williams at the top of the draft. Atlanta and Las Vegas are two common destinations tied to Fields. Both teams are desperate for an upgrade at quarterback and are unlikely to land one of the top three prospects in the upcoming draft. Fields has been an elite fantasy option because of his rushing production but needs to improve as a passer to be the face of any franchise. A fresh start with a new coaching staff would be a step in the right direction as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.
  • FA Tackle #72
    The move will save Washington roughly $7.3 million in cap space. Leno missed the final three games of the 2023 season with a calf injury and one game earlier in the year because of a shoulder issue. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Leno is set to undergo surgery on his hip next week. At 32 years old, Leno was still an effective left tackle, ranking as Pro Football Focus’s No. 28 tackle last year. If the hip injury doesn’t linger into the 2024 season, Leno should be able to find a job, likely as a starter, elsewhere in the league.
  • NYG Tight End #12
    Waller, 31, “expressed to individuals in the Giants organization that he was contemplating retirement” after another injury-marred season in which he managed just one touchdown on 52 catches over 11 games. Waller has since committed to returning to the Giants in 2024. He’ll make $10.5 million in base salary and count as a $14 million salary cap hit for the team. The big-framed Waller — constantly battling hamstring injuries — is at best a red zone weapon after slowing down in recent seasons.
  • FA Safety #31
    The move will save the Eagles around $13 million in salary cap space for 2024. Philadelphia acquired Byard in a trade with the Titans in October. The two-time All Pro was quiet throughout his two months as a starter in the struggling Eagles secondary, graded by PFF as the NFL’s eighth worst coverage unit in 2023. Byard, entering his age-31 season, should be in line for a short-term contract with another team this offseason.
