1.Dynasty | Eli Manning on the hot seat (Dynasty League Football) The Giants took their quarterback of the future in the form of Daniel Jones from Duke with the 6th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is a clear gut punch to Manning owners who were hoping to salvage some late career value as a backup quarterback on their dynasty teams. Manning will likely be the incumbent starter this year, but his leash will be very, very short now that the Giants have made their move and found their quarterback of the future. Despite the overwhelming disdain for him, Manning posted a good season last year with 4,299 passing yards and 21 touchdowns, while throwing just 11 interce... (More)13 minutes
2.Dynasty | Josh Rosen sees his successor taken (Dynasty League Football) The Arizona Cardinals have taken Kyler Murray with the first pick in the NFL Draft. Analysis: Rosen was the tenth overall pick just last year and played with one of the worst offensive casts in football last season. While Rosen had some ups and downs, he still posted 2,278 passing yards and 11 touchdowns, while throwing 14 interceptions. There's no doubting Rosen's talent, but a change in scenery is coming and his next team will undoubtedly have less invested in him than the Cardinals did. It's a tough break for Rosen, especially since he really didn't have a chance last season. Our QB2... (More)13 minutes
3.Dynasty | Kyler Murray selected by Arizona (Dynasty League Football) The Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: At 5’10”, Murray projects as the shortest NFL starter. In fact, no other quarterback other than Seattle’s Russell Wilson stand less that 6’ in height. As a one-year phenom at Oklahoma, the Heisman trophy winner posted a ridiculous 4,361 passing yards, 1,001 rushing yards and 54 touchdowns with just seven interceptions, apparently leaving his baseball dreams in the dust to pursue an NFL career in the process. Murray pres... (More)13 minutes
4.Dynasty | Nick Bosa selected by San Francisco (Dynasty League Football) The San Francisco 49ers selected DE Nick Bosa with the second pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: We normally don't highlight many IDP prospects, especially outside of the linebacker position, but Bosa is a versatile 3-4 or 4-3 end who has the pedigree and physical make-up to be highly productive at the next level, though not as agile as his brother Joey Bosa (Chargers). Carrying some injury risk, IDP coaches likely won't select Bosa ahead of many of the inside linebacker prospects in the early rounds of this class, but he's de... (More)13 minutes
5.Dynasty | TJ Hockenson selected by Detroit (Dynasty League Football) The Detroit Lions selected TE TJ Hockenson with the sixth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: With 49 catches for 760 yards and six touchdowns last season, Hockenson proved to be a truly special prospect at the position. The 6'5", 250 pound Hawkeye posted an impressive 4.70 40 time at the Combine and production to match. Fellow Hawkeye, Noah Fant, has been equally impressive and either could have been first off the board. Regardless, Hockenson falls to an immediate starting situation as a three-down player capable as an inline blocker as well as the 'move' end as a receiver. The Lions... (More)13 minutes
6.Dynasty | Devin White selected by Tampa Bay (Dynasty League Football) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected LB Devin White with the fifth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: White projects well to the NFL and will be a day-one starter. He’s a quick-twitch, sideline-to-sideline player, who has a nose for the ball and speed to get to it quickly. A bit undersized as an inside presence at the position, White will need to add some size at the next level and his technique will need to improve. He’s not yet proven as a three-down linebacker but he’ll immediately fill in for Kwon Alexander and should be h... (More)13 minutes
7.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill has recording handed over (Dynasty League Football) A recording allegedly incriminating Tyreek Hill for child abuse has been acquired by a TV Station in Kansas City. Analysis: Just when this story seemed to be on the shelf, word has leaked out that KCTV5 in Kansas City has acquired a potentially explosive recording of Hill taking responsibility for injuries to his girlfriend's son. If this proves to be credible, this could have major ramifications to Hill's career. The Chiefs have been somewhat inconsistent with their handling of players with off the field trouble (they cut Kareem Hun... (More)13 minutes
8.Dynasty | Daniel Jones selected by New York Giants (Dynasty League Football) The New York Giants selected QB Daniel Jones with the fifth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: The first real surprise of the 2019 NFL Draft. While most of the focus is on the likes of Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock in 2019, Jones is a sleeper. Top quarterback coach, David Cutcliffe developed Jones and he enters the NFL as a very experienced three-year collegiate starter who put up great numbers despite not having a great surrounding cast. It's fair to wonder if Jones has a ceiling similar to that of Joe Flacco as only a gam... (More)13 minutes
9.Steelers trade up for Michigan LB Devin ... (Rotoworld) Steelers traded up with the Broncos to select Michigan LB Devin Bush with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.14 minutes
10.Devin Bush selected No. 10 by Pittsburgh Steelers (FantasyPros) More details on this news will be available soon. Analysis: Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.15 minutes
11.Ed Oliver goes to Buffalo Bills at No. 9 overall (FantasyPros) With the number nine overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected defensive tackle Ed Oliver. Analysis: Oliver is a true three-down defensive tackle with pass-rushing ability who should step in and start right away for the rebuilding and retooling Bills. He is a bit undersized but makes up for it with excellent athletic ability. While he is not as reliable against the run as he is rushing the passer, he should have plenty of early success in today's NFL.21 minutes
12.Ed Oliver falls into Bills lap at 9th ov... (Rotoworld) Bills selected Houston DT Ed Oliver with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Oliver (6’2/281) turned pro as true junior after a prolific three-year stint at Houston, earning the 2017 Outland Trophy as college football’s top interior defensive lineman as a sophomore and All-American recognition in all three seasons. All told, Oliver tallied 54 career TFLs, 13.5 sacks, and six forced fumbles despite playing out of position at nose tackle. A true freak athlete, Oliver predictably shredded pre-draft workouts with a 4.73 forty, running back-like 4.22 short shuttle, and 10-foot broad jump, showing incredible explosi... (More)23 minutes
13.T.J. Hockenson selected No. 8 by Detroit Lions (FantasyPros) The Detroit Lions have selected tight end T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: T.J. Hockenson is the most complete tight end prospect in years and represents a huge get for Matthew Stafford and the Lions. He is an excellent receiver, and projects as an immediate starter. Hockenson should be considered a TE1 candidate.27 minutes
14.Lions fill large TE need with Hockenson ... (Rotoworld) Lions selected Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Hockenson (6’5/251) went pro after earning the 2018 Mackey Award as a redshirt sophomore, finishing what amounted to a two-year career with 73/1,080/9 (14.8 YPR) receiving working in tandem with Noah Fant. In 2018, 35 of Hockenson’s 49 catches went for first downs or touchdowns (71.4%). Surer handed and a superior in-line blocker to his Iowa teammate, Hockenson also showed high-end athleticism by testing in the 88 th -SPARQ percentile with a 4.7-flat forty, 37.5-inch vertical, and 7.02 three-cone time in Indy. This draft’s most wel... (More)29 minutes
15.Josh Allen selected No. 7 by Jacksonville Jaguars (FantasyPros) The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected former Kentucky OLB Josh Allen with the seventh pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Allen is one of the best edge rushers in this year's draft class, and he was widely considered to be a top-5 talent. The Jaguars have more pressing needs (specifically on the offensive line and in the receiving game), but Allen was the best available pick and a steal at No. 7.33 minutes
16.Jags make Josh Allen No. 7 overall pick (Rotoworld) Jaguars selected Kentucky DE Josh Allen with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Allen (6’5/262) made 35 starts at outside-rush linebacker in the Wildcats’ 3-4 -- he will be playing in a 4-3 in Jacksonville -- never missing a game in his college career en route to a school-record 31.5 sacks among 41 tackles for loss with a school-record-tying 11 forced fumbles. In addition to 17 sacks as a senior – second most in the nation -- Allen led all SEC edge defenders in QB pressures (57) after adding 20 pounds of muscle last offseason and expanding his pass-rush moves. A high school wide receiver who wins with leng... (More)34 minutes
17.Honorary Manning: Giants take Daniel Jon... (Rotoworld) Giants selected Duke QB Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: It certainly makes sense for the Giants to add a quarterback at No. 6, but picking this one this high is another questionable decision in an offseason full of them. Jones (6’5/221) turned pro after making 36 starts for David Cutcliffe’s Blue Devils, managing a 17-19 career record as a 59.9% passer at just 6.4 yards per attempt with a 52:29 TD-to-INT ratio. Jones did show plus mobility with 17 career rushing TDs and a 4.81 forty in Indy, also acing the Wonderlic Test (37). Jones’ poor supporting cast was partly to blame for his poor ... (More)40 minutes
18.Daniel Jones selected No. 6 by New York Giants (FantasyPros) The New York Giants have selected quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is a surprise. Not only did the Giants theoretically reach here, but they likely could've traded down and gotten him several picks later. Of course, Giants GM Dave Gettleman has famously never traded down before. Jones is close with Eli Manning so there likely won't be much animosity here. Jones is now the quarterback of the future for the Odell Beckham-less Giants.41 minutes
19.Bucs make LSU LB Devin White No. 5 pick (Rotoworld) Bucs selected LSU LB Devin White with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: White (6’0/237) earned the 2018 Butkus Trophy as college football’s top linebacker, collecting first-team All-SEC for the second straight season. Over three years in Baton Rouge, White tallied 8.5 sacks and four forced fumbles as a 25-game starter. White solidified his stock at the Combine by testing in the 94th percentile with 4.42 speed. A standout in pass coverage with sideline-to-sideline playmaking ability, White offers every-down impact potential in the C.J. Mosley mold. White should be a big upgrade on overrated free agent depart... (More)45 minutes
20.Devin White selected by Tampa Bay Buccaneers at No. 5 overall (FantasyPros) With the number five overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected LSU linebacker Devin White. Analysis: With the Raiders stunning everyone and taking Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the fourth overall pick, the Bucs were in an interesting position with Josh Allen, Ed Oliver, and Devin White still available. There were rumors that they might be looking to trade back with a team looking to move up for a quarterback, but they ultimately went with Devin White, a three-down linebacker who should instantly step in and help their defense.46 minutes
21.Report: Redskins 'in the hunt' for Josh ... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Washington's J.P. Finlay reports the Redskins "will be in the hunt" to trade for Josh Rosen.46 minutes
22.Clelin Ferrell selected No. 4 by Oakland Raiders (FantasyPros) The Oakland Raiders have selected defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: In a surprise move, the Oakland Raiders selected Clelin Ferrell at fourth overall. While he is one of the best edge rushers in the draft, he was not on the radar this high for most. Ferrell fills an glaring need for the Raiders and projects as an immediate starter. He has enough talent to become an IDP force as a rookie.53 minutes
23.Raiders nab DE Ferrell at No. 4 overall ... (Rotoworld) Raiders selected Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is the first of three first-round picks for the Raiders on Thursday. Ferrell (6’4/264) turned pro as a redshirt junior after registering 50 career TFLs with 27 sacks and five forced fumbles across 44 starts, earning 2018’s ACC Defensive Player of the Year and Ted Hendricks Award as the nation’s top defensive end. Ferrell’s pre-draft workouts were limited by a nagging turf toe injury, but his tape reveals a complete defensive end who stuffs the run and disrupts the pass with a quick get-off step, active hands, violent bul... (More)53 minutes
24.Quinnen Williams selected No. 3 by New York Jets (FantasyPros) Former Alabama DT Quinnen Williams has been selected third overall by the New York Jets in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams wreaked havoc on opposing offenses while playing for the Crimson Tide, and he should make an immediate impact on the Jets' defensive line. Even though he plays on the interior, he has a high motor, elite speed, and an uncanny ability to get into the backfield.1 hour
25.Jets stay put, make DT Williams No. 3 pi... (Rotoworld) Jets selected Alabama DT Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams (6’3/303) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after logging 25 career tackles for loss and nine sacks at nose tackle in Nick Saban’s 3-4. Despite his block-occupying duties, PFF credited Williams with 55 QB pressures in 2018, which led all SEC interior defensive linemen. Williams shredded the Combine with 83rd-percentile SPARQ results and 4.83 speed, otherworldly for a 303-pound human. Better suited for three-technique tackle in the pros, Williams’ game is reminiscent of Gerald McCoy as a slippery and explosive inside ... (More)1 hour
26.49ers add Nick Bosa with No. 2 overall p... (Rotoworld) 49ers selected Ohio State DE Nick Bosa with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Despite spending three first-round picks in the last four years along the defensive line and trading for Dee Ford, the 49ers still had questions at pass rusher. At least on paper, Bosa looks like the answer. The 6-foot-4, 266-pound pass rusher was the 2017 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year and first-team All-American as a sophomore before missing all but three games as a 2018 junior with a core muscle injury that required surgery. Joey’s brother left school with 29 career tackles for loss, 18 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Healt... (More)1 hour
27.Nick Bosa selected No. 2 by San Francisco 49ers (FantasyPros) The San Francisco 49ers have selected defensive lineman Nick Bosa with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Defensive line was a huge need for the 49ers this draft after the 2018 team registered the eighth-fewest sacks in the league. The Niners also acquired Dee Ford this off-season , which means last year's weakness could potentially become a strength. The former Ohio State Buckeye is the brother of Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa.1 hour
28.Heisman winner Kyler Murray goes 1st to ... (Rotoworld) Cardinals selected Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Murray (5’10/207) turned down the Oakland A’s after Billy Beane’s team made him the No. 9 overall pick in last year’s MLB draft, following his heart to the NFL after earning the 2018 Heisman Trophy by completing 69% of his passes at an absurd 11.6 yards per attempt with a 42:7 TD-INT ratio and 12 additional rushing scores as Baker Mayfield’s successor. Despite his smallish build, only five of Murray’s 2018 passes were batted down, and he generates stunning ball velocity with a lightning-quick release and multi-arm-angle re... (More)1 hour
29.Disturbing audio of Tyreek Hill released (FantasyPros) New and disturbing audio of Tyreek Hill discussing his son's broken arm has been released. Analysis: Just one day removed from learning that the District Attorney would not file charges against Hill in a "domestic dispute," a disturbing audio recording has been released of Tyreek Hill and his fiancée discussing their son's broken arm. His fiancée asks Hill why his son says "daddy did it." Hill also describes his disciplinary methods as punching his son in the chest and using a belt. When pressed by his fiancée, he tells her "you need to be terrified of me." The DA has made it clear that the investigation could be reopened wi... (More)1 hour
30.Kyler Murray drafted first overall by Arizona Cardinals in 2019 NFL Draft (FantasyPros) The Arizona Cardinals drafted Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 draft. Analysis: Murray goes to the Cardinals just one year after they drafted Josh Rosen. Rosen is now almost certain to be traded at some point during the draft, possibly even before the first round is over. The Cardinals and their new coaching staff have a lot of work to do in order to rebuild (they drafted first overall for a reason) their roster, but Murray will step right in and have David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk as playmakers on the offensive side of the ball.1 hour
31.Chris Long to PHI: Plan like I won't be ... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt reports Eagles DE Chris Long told the front office to "plan like I won't be back." Analysis: "[Football is] too hard on my body, my family, on everyone else to kind of go through it for a role that’s far from perfect," Long said on the Philadelphia Enquirer's Eagles podcast. "I told [the team] this maybe a month ago: 'Hey, listen, plan like I’m not going to be back." The Eagles want Long to take a pay cut prior to his $2 million roster bonus hitting his bank account in May, but the back-to-back Super Bowl champ is contemplating ret... (More)1 hour
32.No deal expected for Chris Harris on Thu... (Rotoworld) 9News' Mike Klis reports no deal for Broncos CB Chris Harris is expected on Thursday. Analysis: There's apparently still uncertainty among the front office whether Harris will even be traded. GM John Elway has confirmed multiple times throughout the offseason the team's plans to negotiate an extension with Harris, but the soon-to-be 30-year-old All-Pro has remained steadfast in wanting to see the actual fruit from his body of work. It's likely Harris skips mandatory minicamp if a deal isn't worked out soon. Don't sleep on Harris being traded Friday morning to a CB-needy team that went i... (More)1 hour
33.Recording incriminates Hill in abuse cas... (Rotoworld) CBS Kansas City has obtained audio allegedly recorded by Tyreek Hill's girlfriend that appears to incriminate him in the couple's child abuse case.2 hours
34.Report: Jets and Raiders have discussed ... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Connor Hughes reports the Jets and Raiders have discussed a trade involving the Nos. 3 and 4 picks. Analysis: Hughes also confirms the Bills have also reached out about the No. 3 pick. Buffalo's target is believed to be Quinnen Williams. It is uncertain who the Raiders might be targeting.3 hours
35.Bucky Hodges: Cut loose ahead of draft (RotoWire) Hodges was waived by the Steelers on Thursday. Analysis: Hodges spent the 2018 season on the Steelers' practice squad and re-upped on a reserve/future contract in January, but he's now being let go just hours before the start of the 2019 NFL Draft. The 2017 sixth-rounder will presumably try and mix in with the incoming class of undrafted free agents as teams try to fill out their 90-man rosters ahead of training camp.3 hours
36.Report: Cards have discussed three playe... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Cardinals have "had discussions today" with Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams' player reps. Analysis: Per Silver, the Cardinals are "still keeping their plans close to the vest." Murray has been the longtime favorite, but there has been a little more smoke than usual that the Cardinals' private plans do not match the public reality. We will find out in a little over two hours.3 hours
37.Report: Devin Bush unlikely to fall past... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Michigan LB Devin Bush believes he won't fall past the Bengals at No. 11. Analysis: This could explain where reports that the Steelers and Falcons are entertaining a trade up could be coming from. The Packers at No. 12 also have the need.4 hours
38.Jalen Ramsey: Locked up through 2020 (RotoWire) The Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option on Ramsey's rookie contract, Tad Dickman of the team's official site reports. Analysis: The Jaguars kicked off the offseason program April 15 without Ramsay, who opted to stay away from voluntary workouts and instead continue his training in Nashville. With a deadline of May 3 to pick up the aforementioned option, it was only a matter of time before Jacksonville made the simple decision. Ramsay has back-to-back Pro-Bowl bids under his belt due to superior coverage abilities, including 44 passes defended and nine interceptions through three campaigns.5 hours
39.Quinnen Williams drawing heavy interest from Buffalo Bills (FantasyPros) Former Alabama DT Quinnen Williams has drawn a lot of interest from the Buffalo Bills leading up to the NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams, widely regarded as a top-3 prospect in this year's draft class, could end up a Buffalo Bill. The New York Jets currently own the No. 3 pick in the draft, but they are very willing to trade down. The Bills own the No. 9 pick, and they are reportedly interested in trading up for Williams if he is available. He is not a lock to be available at three, with the Cardinals (No. 1) and 49ers (No. 2) still in play to select the talented defensive lineman.5 hours
40.CLE could trade back into first for Simm... (Rotoworld) CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns could trade back into the first round if Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons falls. Analysis: It is our second Simmons blurb in two hours. The Miami Herald believes the Dolphins could trade down from No. 13 with a Simmons pick in mind. Simmons is recovering from a torn ACL and has a disturbing off-the-field incident in his past. Browns GM John Dorsey rather infamously pays little attention to such matters.5 hours
41.Ben Roethlisberger: Gets $67.5M guaranteed in new deal (RotoWire) Roethlisberger will be guaranteed $67.5 million through the 2021 season after agreeing Wednesday with the Steelers on a two-year, $68 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Roethlisberger will earn $12 million in salary in 2019 before the extension goes into effect next March at the start of the new league year. Upon putting pen to paper on the deal, Roethlisberger will receive $37.5 million as part of a signing bonus, with another $30 million guaranteed in the event of an injury. The extension essentially ensures that Roethlisberger, who turned 37 in March, will finish his career with the only franchise... (More)5 hours
42.Report: Dolphins could target Jeffery Si... (Rotoworld) The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have had "serious talks" about drafting Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons. Analysis: Any move would apparently not come at No. 13 but a trade down. There have been multiple Thursday reports about the Dolphins' interest in moving down. Simmons, who is recovering from a torn ACL and torn meniscus, is likely to miss the entire 2019 season. He also has a disturbing incident of violence against a woman in his past. It would not be surprising were Simmons to fall to day two.5 hours
43.Report: Bills could trade up for DT Will... (Rotoworld) CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Bills could trade up to No. 3 overall with the intention of selecting Alabama DT Quinnen Williams. Analysis: The Jets own the No. 3 pick. La Canfora's report is via "two general managers." Ace beat writer Joe Buscaglia "wouldn't doubt it." The Bills own the No. 9 selection, meaning any move would be extremely expensive. Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have established an extremely aggressive culture, however. It is something to watch for.5 hours
44.Report: PIT considering Thursday trade u... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers are "one of the teams making calls to potentially move up the draft board." Analysis: The Steelers have needs all over their defense. In particular, they could be considering a linebacker. Michigan's Devin Bush and LSU's Devin White are both candidates to go in the top 10. The Steelers are all the way back at No. 20, so that kind of move up would cost a pretty penny.6 hours
45.Jags officially exercise Ramsey's option... (Rotoworld) Jaguars exercised CB Jalen Ramsey's fifth-year team option for 2020. Analysis: Playing hurt last season, Ramsey's play fell off from his extraordinary 2017, but he remained one of the league's top corners. There is every reason to believe that will remain the case heading into his age-25 campaign. Despite occasional tension with the team, Ramsey should eventually sign a mega extension with the Jags.6 hours
46.Report: Raiders could attempt Bosa trade... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Raiders are considering trading up for Ohio State DE Nick Bosa. Analysis: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that the Raiders could make a "surprise" move. This would certainly qualify. It is not a guarantee that Bosa is even the first defensive lineman off the board, with Alabama's Quinnen Williams supposedly still in the running for the No. 1 pick.6 hours
47.Report: G-Men could target WVU's Will Gr... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports West Virginia QB Will Grier could be an option for the Giants in a trade back into the first round if they miss out on Drew Lock and Daniel Jones. Analysis: That's the Teddy Bridgewater plan. Grier seems to be the No. 5 quarterback in the draft's unofficial consensus ranks. At 24, Grier is elderly for a prospect, but his accuracy is arguably the tops in this year's class.6 hours
48.Report: Rosen more likely to be dealt Th... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter considers Josh Rosen more likely to be traded on Friday than Thursday. Analysis: Per Schefter, the teams to watch are the Chargers, Dolphins and Giants. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported earlier Thursday that GM Steve Keim will not force a trade on Thursday. A deal Friday would still allow for 2019 day-two picks to be dealt, while 2020 would also be on the table.7 hours
49.Report: Missouri's Lock on the Giants' r... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Missouri QB Drew Lock will be drafted on Thursday evening, and that he is on the Giants' radar. Analysis: There has been increasing chatter that Lock could be the No. 2 quarterback off the board behind Kyler Murray. The Giants own the No. 6 pick but might be more inclined to take the Lock plunge at No. 17. Lock offers a monstrous ceiling but also a concerning floor.7 hours
50.Cards tell Quinnen Williams he could be ... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals have told Alabama DT Quinnen Williams that he is still in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick. Analysis: There has been small but persistent chatter that the Cardinals are not as locked in on Oklahoma's Kyler Murray as the media consensus would lead you to believe. We are still having trouble buying it. The NFL goes to great lengths to keep the No. 1 overall pick secret. The body of evidence still strongly suggests it will be Murray.7 hours
51.Report: WSH divided on which QB to draft (Rotoworld) ESPN's Dianna Russini reports the Redskins remain divided on which quarterback to target in the first round on Thursday, with Daniel Snyder and GM Bruce Allen favoring Dwayne Haskins but others wanting Daniel Jones. Analysis: The Redskins should ... listen to Snyder and Allen? If true, it is truly incredible that a team could come down to draft day and still be this split on a decision they have had months to make. Of course, if it was going to be anyone, it would be the Redskins. They are going to do it live on Thursday evening.7 hours
52.Tim Jernigan: Returning to Philadelphia (RotoWire) Jernigan agreed Thursday to re-join the Eagles on a one-year contract, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports, Analysis: The Eagles let Jernigan hit free agency at the start of the offseason, unwilling to pay the defensive tackle an $11 million base salary in 2019 following a season in which he was limited to three games by a back injury. However, it seems the two sides were able to reach agreement on a more team-friendly deal and now Jernigan is back in the fold for another year before getting another chance to try his hand in free agency again next season. While it seems likely that Malik Jackson and Fletcher... (More)8 hours
53.Report: Texans open to trading Clowney (Rotoworld) ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Texans are open to trading unsigned franchise player Jadeveon Clowney. Analysis: The sides are reportedly nowhere close to a long-term agreement, so perhaps the Texans are willing to pull a Frank Clark and move on for something now instead of nothing next offseason. Clowney's injury history is likely what is stalling talks in Houston and would complicate any potential trade effort.8 hours
54.Josh Rosen a trade target for the Miami Dolphins? (FantasyPros) Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has drawn serious interest from the Miami Dolphins as a potential trade target. Analysis: Rosen has been linked to teams such as the Giants, Patriots, and Redskins in trade rumors over the past several weeks, though the Dolphins have emerged as serious contenders to acquire the former 10th overall pick. Miami currently owns the 13th, 48th, and 78th overall picks in the first three rounds of this year's draft, and it is widely believed that the team may be able to trade for Rosen without having to give up its first round selection. Rosen's potential trade hinges on the Cardinals selecting Oklahoma... (More)8 hours
55.Report: Sweat's heart issue was misdiagn... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat's heart issue was misdiagnosed at the Combine, and that additional testing revealed no problem. Analysis: Sweat tore up the Combine, but his "heart issue" ended up dominating the discussion. In the intervening months, he has reportedly fallen off many draft boards. At one point viewed as a likely day-one pick, Sweat is not attending Thursday's first round in Nashville. Perhaps he could now sneak back into the first 32 picks. It, of course, is also possible that this is Sweat's agent getting out a too-rosy 11th hour report.8 hours
56.Schefter: MIA, NYG only teams talking Ro... (Rotoworld) Speaking on WEEI, ESPN's Adam Schefter said the Dolphins and Giants are the only teams who have talked to the Cardinals about trading for Josh Rosen in recent weeks. Analysis: "Period. End of story," Schefter said. The reporter did add the Chargers inquired about a month ago, but they are no longer interested. Of course, other teams could get back into the mix if Arizona lowers their asking price, which they might be forced to do as Thursday afternoon rolls along. Rosen's already diminished trade value will take a big hit if (when) the Cardinals select Kyler Murray with the No... (More)8 hours
57.Eagles bring back DT Timmy Jernigan (Rotoworld) Eagles re-signed DT Timmy Jernigan to a one-year contract. Analysis: Philly declined Jernigan's $11 million option back in March, but the defensive tackle did not find much interest on the open market. He returns to the Eagles for what is likely a much lower salary on something of a prove-it deal. Coming off an injury-ruined season, Jernigan is a decent bet to rehab his value before hitting the market again next spring.9 hours
58.PFT: 49ers shopping DL Solomon Thomas (Rotoworld) Pro Football Talk reports the 49ers are shopping DL Solomon Thomas. Analysis: The only argument against the 49ers selecting Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams, generally believed to be the two best players in the draft, at No. 2 is the fact they have spent three first-round picks on the defensive line in the last four seasons. Thomas was the No. 3 overall selection back in 2017, but he has struggled to just four sacks in two years. Perhaps a new situation would jump-start his career.9 hours
59.Ex-NFL DT Roy Miller arrested for child ... (Rotoworld) Ex-NFL DT Roy Miller was arrested Wednesday for child abuse. Analysis: Miller was also arrested in 2017 for domestic battery. The 31-year-old has been out of the league since 2017.10 hours
60.Dolphins among most interested in moving... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Dolphins are among the teams most interested in trading down Thursday night. Analysis: Pelissero also mentions the Jets, Lions, Seahawks, and Rams. Scheduled to pick at No. 13, the Dolphins are in an interesting spot because Washington (15) has been heavily linked with quarterbacks in the last several days. If a team wants to ensure they land someone like Missouri QB Drew Lock, jumping Washington makes sense. In the midst of a full rebuild, the Dolphins need as many picks as possible.10 hours
61.Rams getting calls about No. 31 overall ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams have already received calls about the No. 31 overall pick. Analysis: First rounders come with the added value of a fifth-year option, making the final few picks on Thursday more valuable than they once were. Last year, the Ravens traded up to the No. 32 pick to select Lamar Jackson, and it would not be surprising to see something similar happen this year if a quarterback slides.11 hours
62.'People could be surprised' by No. 1 pic... (Rotoworld) "Cardinals sources" told NFL Network's Michael Silver "people could be surprised" by the No. 1 overall pick. Analysis: Kyler Murray has been seen as a near lock for the top selection since the Combine, so a surprise pick would have to come from somewhere else. Silver reports the Cardinals believe Murray, Nick Bosa, and Quinnen Williams are the top options available, and it seems like Bosa and Williams are atop most draft boards. If the Cardinals have Murray anywhere close to the other two, he has to be the pick. Quarterback is just that valuable.11 hours
63.PFT: WAS has 'no real desire' to trade u... (Rotoworld) Pro Football Talk reports Washington has "no real desire" to trade up from No. 15. Analysis: Washington has been heavily linked with a trade up for a quarterback over the last couple of days, but it seems like that talk is just smoke. ESPN's John Keim wrote there is a "slim chance" they move up because the team values the picks and needs a lot of help. If Washington really is looking for a quarterback, it is possible one falls into their lap at No. 15.12 hours
64.Report: Falcons willing to trade into to... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons have "shown a willingness to trade into the top 10." Analysis: Rapoport also lists Washington as a team willing to move up after they were linked with a couple of quarterbacks on Wednesday. For the Falcons, any trade up would likely be for a defender, and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero pegged Michigan LB Devin Bush as a prime target. The Broncos (10), Bengals (11), and Packers (12) all have a need at linebacker and pick ahead of the Falcons (14) on Thursday night.12 hours
65.Colt McCoy 'still a possibility' as star... (Rotoworld) FoxSports.com's Peter Schrager reports Washington doesn't view Case Keenum as the default starter. Analysis: Colt McCoy is reportedly "still very much a possibility" as the No. 1 atop Washington's depth chart even after the 32-year-old vet underwent a third procedure on his broken leg following a setback this offseason. The Skins sent the Broncos a 2020 sixth-round pick for Keenum's services in March, so they're not heavily invested in the ex-Broncos quarterback. Amid rumors owner Dan Snyder is attempting to overrule his staff and move up in tomorrow's draft, it's likely Washi... (More)23 hours
66.Dynasty | Ben Roethlisberger signs extension (Dynasty League Football) The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed Ben Roethlisberger to a two-year extension worth $68M Analysis: The deal happened a day before the 2019 NFL draft allowing the Steelers to move forward knowing they have Big Ben through the 2021 season. This is great news for Big Ben owners as he has shown how potent this offense can be. In 2018, he lead the league in passing with 5,129 yards and threw for 34 touchdowns. The Steelers traded away Antonio Brown in the offseason taking away a big weapon for their offense, but they still have JuJu Smith-Schuster a... (More)23 hours
67.'Feeling' is Bengals not in Day One QB m... (Rotoworld) FoxSports.com's Peter Schrager reports the "feeling" around the league is that the Bengals won't select a quarterback in the first round. Analysis: The new Bengals regime has been linked to Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins of late, but Schrager nixes that idea. The Athletic's Joe Goodberry also recently reported Cincinnati doesn't view Haskins as a prospect under center "worthy" of the No. 11 overall pick. If Jawaan Taylor, Andre Dillard, and Jonah Williams are all off the board by the time the Bengals are on the clock, it's still possible the team opts to draft a signal-caller in the first round.23 hours
68.Tampa exercises CB Hargreaves' team opti... (Rotoworld) Bucs exercised CB Vernon Hargreaves fifth-year option. Analysis: Hargreaves was only able to suit up for one game last year due to a torn labrum in his shoulder. Now fully healthy for the Bucs' offseason program, the 2016 first-rounder is expected to stick with Tampa Bay through the 2020 season (which his option covers). Although injuries have limited him to just 10 games over the last two seasons, the new coaching staff will rely on Hargreaves to play on the outside opposite of 2018 second-rounder Carlton Davis.1 day
69.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids criminal charges (Dynasty League Football) The District Attorney of Johnson County, Kansas announced no charges will be filed in the criminal investigation of the Chiefs receiver, citing that "A crime has occurred," but stating there was no conclusive evidence as to who committed it. Analysis: It appears the Chiefs' star wide receiver will avoid legal charges. However, that does not mean the NFL will not still levy a suspension on Hill. The NFL has a precedent for suspending players that have not received criminal charges. Most notably players like Ezekiel Elliott, Adrian Peterson, and Ben Roethlisberger have been given suspensions f... (More)1 day
70.Dynasty | Marshawn Lynch Retires (Dynasty League Football) Marshawn Lynch retires from football after 12 seasons Analysis: Marshawn Lynch finishes his 12 year career in the NFL with 10,379 rushing yards and 84 touchdowns on the ground. Drafted 12th overall in 2007 by the Bills, Lynch quickly moved on to Seattle where he shined for the Seahawks. In 2016 he retired for a year before joining the Raiders for two years to round out his epic career.The Raiders were proactive in adding Isaiah Crowell (RB 52, ADP 171) earlier in the offseason. Crowel... (More)1 day
71.Tyreek Hill: Won't be charged (RotoWire) Johnson County (Kan.) District Attorney Steve Howe will not charge Hill or his fiance for domestic incidents involving their son, the Associated Press reports. Analysis: The investigation pored over the facts of two events from the first half of March at Hill's home in Overland Park, Kan. Howe's office "has reviewed all the evidence compiled ... and has declined to file charges" for alleged battery, according to Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports. While the probe didn't yield any criminal charges, there's still a chance the Chiefs and/or the NFL assess punishment for violations of the personal conduct policy. At the moment, though, neit...

72.Corey Liuget visits Jaguars (Rotoworld) Free agent DT Corey Liuget visited the Jaguars. Analysis: He visited with Seattle last week but left without a deal. Liuget should find a new team after the draft.1 day
73.Ezekiel Ansah: Expecting late-summer return (RotoWire) Ansah (shoulder) drew positive reviews from a shoulder specialist Monday and expects to be fully cleared by mid-August, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: It appears Ansah left his visit with the Ravens without signing a contract, but that doesn't necessarily mean Baltimore isn't a possible suitor for the defensive end anymore. Regardless, any team looking to sign Ansah will be concerned with the health of his troublesome shoulder, and it's sounding like the 2015 Pro-Bowler has a reasonable chance of being ready to go well before the start of the regular season.1 day
74.Carl Lawson: No clear timetable for return (RotoWire) Lawson (knee) doesn't have a clear timeline to return to the field, Fletcher Page of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "The goal overall is just be ready for the first game," he said. "That's my goal to be set for. Be back by training camp or be back by this date - I'm not going to sit there and rush it. I'm not. I'm ahead of schedule, but then again I could be down schedule. Until I feel right I'm not coming back. The goal is definitely the first game," Lawson said. Analysis: Lawson will be over 10 months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL when the regular season opens in September. While it's not unrealistic to think he coul... (More)1 day
75.Ezekiel Ansah likely to be cleared in Au... (Rotoworld) Free agent EDGE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is expected to be cleared in August. Analysis: Ansah had a check-up with Dr. Neal ElAttrache this week. There are no structural issues with his shoulder, but he needs time to rebuild strength that is likely going to cost him some of training camp. Ansah visited with the Ravens on Wednesday and should start to see his market heat up after the draft.1 day
76.Buckner's fifth-year option picked up (Rotoworld) 49ers exercised LE DeForest Buckner's fifth-year option. Analysis: This was an expected move. Buckner made the Pro Bowl with a career-high 13 sacks in a breakout 2018. The 49ers should sign Buckner to a long-term extension next offseason.1 day
77.Dynasty | Josh Gordon signs restricted tender (Dynasty League Football) The Patriots wide receiver has signed his restricted free agent tender. Analysis: Whether or not Gordon will play in 2019 is still very much in question. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in December after once again violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Gordon has been considered one of the most purely talented receivers in the game since his breakout performance in 2013 that saw him record 87 catches, 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns from a QB timeshare of Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer. Unfortunately, his well-documented struggles with substance abuse have derailed his c... (More)1 day
78.Keanu Neal: Fifth-year option exercised (RotoWire) The Falcons officially exercised the fifth-year option on Neal's rookie contract Wednesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports. Analysis: This comes as no surprise after general manager Thomas Dimitroff stated in February that the team planned to go this direction. Neal is now officially under Falcons control through 2020 and looking to rebound from an ACL injury that ended his 2018 season in Week 1. The safety was seen participating in weight-lifting workouts as recently as last week and appears to be on track to return well before the start of the 2019 campaign.1 day
79.Redskins re-sign OL Tony Bergstrom (Rotoworld) Redskins re-signed OL Tony Bergstrom. Analysis: Bergstrom made eight starts as a swing interior lineman last year. He'll return as quality veteran depth.1 day
80.Jets SS Marcus Maye cleared for minicamp (Rotoworld) Jets SS Marcus Maye (shoulder) was cleared for voluntary minicamp. Analysis: Maye had surgery after going on IR in December. It's a great sign that he'll get in a full offseason. The Jets should have one of the better safety tandems in the league if Maye stays healthy.1 day
81.Jaire Alexander: Looking healthy at minicamp (RotoWire) Alexander (groin) is participating in team drills at Wednesday's minicamp, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: It doesn't sound as if there are any lingering effects from the groin injury that prevented Alexander from playing in last year's regular-season finale against the Lions. After turning in a rookie season in which Alexander proved why he was made a first-round pick, the Louisville product seems entrenched as a starter for Green Bay in 2019 and could pretty clearly operate as the No. 1 corner if Kevin King (hamstring) can't stay healthy.1 day
82.Kevin King: Not participating in minicamp (RotoWire) King (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: King is the only Packers player that finished last season on injured reserve and isn't taking part in Wednesday's minicamp. While it's not entirely clear if his absence is directly related to the hamstring injury that respectively planted King on IR, it wouldn't be a surprise if Green Bay is taking as cautious of an approach as possible given how the 2017 second-rounder has missed at least seven games in both of his first two seasons.1 day
83.Tyreek not charged; Lack of evidence cit... (Rotoworld) Tyreek Hill will not be charged after being investigated in two separate child abuse cases. Analysis: Johnson County DA Steve Howe said he believes a crime was committed when Hill's three-year-old son's arm was broken last month, but that he could not prove who did it. The boy's mother, Crystal Espinal, will also not be charged. "A child has been hurt," the DA said. "So, yes, as a father of three kids and a prosecutor, it’s frustrating you can’t do anything about it." In so many words, the DA seemed to be casting guilt without actually saying it. Hill and Espinal m... (More)1 day
84.Tyreek Hill will not have charges by District Attorney (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the District Attorney will not press charges against Tyreek Hill in the domestic abuse case. Analysis: There has been updates quite often with Hill recently, though nothing was concrete until now. His child had been removed from his home after suffering a broken arm in a "domestic dispute," though the DA's office has decided there's no conclusive evidence as to who actually broke the child's arm. The Chiefs said they were paying attention to the matter, but given there will be no charges pressed against Hill, he's likely going to get away from this unscathed. Unless Roger Goodell gets invo... (More)1 day
85.Brian Robison: Retires from NFL (RotoWire) Robison signed a one-day contract with the Vikings on Wednesday and subsequently announced his retirement from the NFL, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports. Analysis: Robison spent his entire 11-year career in Minnesota after the team drafted him in the fourth round in 2007. He missed just three games in his career and started 95 contests from 2011 to 2016, ultimately finishing with 206 tackles, 60 sacks and 13 forced fumbles during his career.1 day
86.DeForest Buckner: Team exercises fifth-year option (RotoWire) The 49ers exercised the fifth-year option on Buckner's rookie contract Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Analysis: The two sides could eventually agree to an extension this offseason, but Buckner is nonetheless under 49ers control for the next two seasons. After finishing third in sacks (12) among all defensive lineman last season, he'll now be complemented by a proven pass-rush specialist in offseason pickup Dee Ford. It's possible the team could use its current control of the No. 2 overall pick in this week's draft to bring in another blue-chip talent on the defensive line like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Will... (More)1 day
87.Nelson Agholor: Could be available for trade (RotoWire) Agholor may be available via trade ahead of Thursday's draft, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Agholor is scheduled to make $9.4 million in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. The Eagles don't have an obvious replacement, but they can probably get away with a downgrade in the slot if Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Zach Ertz (undisclosed) are all healthy. Although each of those three players finished out 2018 battling injuries, there hasn't been any suggestion their issues will impact participation in offseason practices.1 day
88.Former Vikings DE Brian Robison retires (Rotoworld) Free agent DE Brian Robison announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons. Analysis: Robison, 36 later this week, spent 2018 out of the league after being released at final cuts last summer. He's signing a one-day contract to retire with the Vikings after spending his entire career in the organization. Robison recorded 60 career sacks while also playing strong run defense.1 day
89.Teams believe Agholor is available for t... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams believe Nelson Agholor is available for trade.1 day
90.Bengals pick up CB William Jackson's opt... (Rotoworld) Bengals exercised CB William Jackson's fifth-year option for 2020. Analysis: Jackson will get a hefty raise from $1.77 million this season to north of $13 million in 2020. The salary is guaranteed for injury only, so the Bengals will have a chance to get out of it at a later date. However, Jackson had a strong 2018 season, playing over 1,000 snaps as Cincinnati's top corner and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover corner out of 123 qualifiers.1 day
91.Report: WSH has looked into moving into ... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Redskins have "explored" trading into the top five. Analysis: The Jets, Raiders, and Bucs hold the Nos. 3-5 picks behind the Cardinals and 49ers. The Jets have made it known they're open to moving back, and the Bucs have also expressed a willingness to do the same at the right price. Washington holds the No. 15 pick currently, and coming up this far would certainly involved next year's first-rounder. The Redskins are reportedly enamored with Dwayne Haskins.1 day
92.Sheldon Rankins: Gets fifth-year option (RotoWire) The Saints are exercising their fifth-year option on Rankins, who is expected to miss the early part of the 2019 season after suffering a torn Achilles on Jan. 13, The New Orleans Advocate reports. Analysis: The fifth-year option applies to 2020 and is guaranteed for injury only. It was probably an easy decision even with a lengthy rehab process ahead, as Rankins is coming off a breakout 2018 campaign that featured 40 tackles (26 solo) and eight sacks in 16 regular-season games (all starts). The 12th overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft recently celebrated his 25th birthday and likely will open his fourth pro season on the PUP list.1 day
93.Duke Johnson: Staying away from team (RotoWire) Johnson is absent from the Browns' voluntary minicamp this week, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Analysis: Johnson's agent requested a trade a few weeks after the Browns signed Kareem Hunt (suspension), likely fearing the 25-year-old won't have a meaningful role in the second half of 2019 if both Hunt and Nick Chubb are available. General manager John Dorsey said last week that he still views Johnson as an important part of the offense, but Dorsey could easily change his mind if/when the backfield becomes crowded. A trade would allow both parties to avoid the awkward scenario, though Cleveland would be left with... (More)1 day
94.Kareem Hunt: Practicing with new teammates (RotoWire) Hunt (suspension) is practicing with the Browns for the first time this week, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Analysis: Hunt is allowed to participate in all team activities -- including preseason games -- until his eight-game suspension kicks in Aug. 31. His presence on the roster has led to trade rumors surrounding Duke Johnson, who thus far has elected to stay away from the team during the voluntary portion of the offseason program. Johnson's agent reportedly asked for a trade in March or early April, but general manager John Dorsey said last week that the 25-year-old running back is still a "vital part" of the of... (More)1 day
95.Ezekiel Ansah: Visiting Baltimore (RotoWire) Ansah (shoulder) is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: While he only has experience in 4-3 schemes to this point in his pro career, Ansah could fit in Baltimore's 3-4 defense as a pass rusher for nickel packages, helping to replace offseason defections Terrell Suggs (Cardinals) and Za'Darius Smith (Packers). Ansah will turn 30 in May after battling through a series of injuries the past three seasons, but it's hard to argue with his production when healthy, as he had 16 sacks in 21 appearances between 2017 and 2018 despite averaging just 31.5 snaps per game. Ansah's career rate of one sack... (More)1 day
96.Justin Tucker: Staying in Baltimore long term (RotoWire) Tucker agreed Wednesday with the Ravens on a four-year contract extension, Clifton Brown of the team's official website reports. Analysis: Tucker leads the NFL in career field-goal percentage (90.1%) and has consistently turned in useful fantasy seasons despite being attached to mediocre or subpar offenses. His phenomenal track record includes at least four field goals of 50 or more yards in each of his seven NFL seasons, with a career conversion rate of 70.4 percent (38 of 54) from long range. The 29-year-old kicker showed no sign of decline in 2018, though he did miss a game-tying extra point Week 7 to snap his streak of 222 consec... (More)1 day
97.Ben Roethlisberger: Reaches two-year extension (RotoWire) The Steelers and Roethlisberger came to terms Wednesday on a two-year contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The value of the deal isn't yet known, but it's expected that the extension will make Roethlisberger one of the NFL's highest-paid players on an annual basis while he's on the Steelers' books through 2021. Though the veteran signal-caller had hinted at retirement in previous offseasons, Roethlisberger confirmed shortly after the Steelers' 2018 campaign wrapped up that he would be back for 2019. Roethlisberger is coming off a productive season in which he established new career highs in passing yards... (More)1 day
98.Justin Tucker signs record extension (FantasyPros) Kicker Justin Tucker will sign a 4-year, $23.05M extension with the Ravens. Analysis: The extension keeps Tucker in Baltimore through 2023 and includes an $8 million signing bonus as well as $12.5 million guaranteed over the first two years of the deal. Those figures are all records for a kicker, but Tucker has proven he is worth the investment with his deadly accuracy. In his seven-year career, he has nailed an NFL-record 90.1 percent of his 263 field goal attempts and 99.6 percent of his 242 extra point attempts, earning All-Pro honors three times.1 day
99.Ezekiel Ansah visiting the Ravens Wednes... (Rotoworld) Free agent EDGE Ezekiel Ansah is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday. Analysis: Ansah's shoulder is the hangup in any potential deal, one that will likely be loaded with incentives and per-game bonuses. Ansah has had multiple shoulder operations and turns 30 next month. However, when healthy, he remains a formidable player off the edge. The Ravens have a huge need there after losing both Terrell Suggs and Za'Darius Smith in free agency. Ansah is one of the best players left on the market.1 day
100.Ben Roethlisberger signs two-year extension (FantasyPros) According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger have agreed to a two-year contract extension to keep him with the team through 2021. Analysis: This is a bit different than the last two offseasons where we heard rumors about Roethlisberger hanging up the cleats and possibly retiring. After drafting Mason Rudolph last year, it was unlikely the Steelers were going to take another quarterback in this draft regardless. If anything, this is great news for JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, and Vance McDonald, as they'll have a few more dynasty years with Roethlisberger.1 day
