1.Royce Freeman: Could split carries with Lindsay (RotoWire) After taking a backseat to Phillip Lindsay as a rookie last season, Freeman could see an increased role -- particularly in short-yardage and goal-line situations -- this season, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports. Analysis: Freeman topped 50 yards three times and scored thrice in his first four games last season, but was later slowed by an ankle injury and the emergence of fellow rookie Phillip Lindsay. He scored just twice during the rest of the season and didn't top 50 yards again until Lindsay sat in Week 17. Lindsay isn't like other diminutive backs in that he has shown toughness and ball security when running between t... (More)5 hours
2.PFT: Chiefs may look to trade Tyreek Hil... (Rotoworld) ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio suggests the Chiefs may look to trade contract-year WR Tyreek Hill. Analysis: The Chiefs plan to resume long-term talks with Hill now that he's been cleared of a suspension. The sides weren't close before his off-field situation, so it's hard to see a deal getting worked out. Hill could push for $20 million annually — potentially pricing himself out of Kansas City. With Mecole Hardman as an in-house fallback, it's possible the Chiefs tag-and-trade Hill next offseason. 11 hours
3.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids suspension (Dynasty League Football) The NFL released a statement stating Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill will NOT be suspended Analysis: There was no greater risk-on acquisition this off-season than that of Tyreek Hill, who was facing a lengthy suspension for domestic abuse. Regardless of your personal thoughts on the situation, the Chiefs and Hill owners dodged a huge bullet. Conversely, those who were willing to face the wind and risk a discounted acquisition have been richly rewarded, at least as it stands n... (More)1 day
4.Tyreek Hill: Won't be suspended (RotoWire) The NFL does not plan to fine or suspend Hill after completing its investigation into allegations of child abuse, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The investigation didn't provide enough evidence to conclude that Hill violated the league's personal conduct policy. He's now eligible to participate in all team activities, including regular-season games. The NFL's statement acknowledges the possibility of another investigation, but only if the league receives new information from law enforcement. The Chiefs released their own statement saying that Hill will have his team suspension lifted to allow for participation at t... (More)1 day
5.K.C. 'remains interested' in Tyreek exte... (Rotoworld) Yahoo's Terez Paylor reports the Chiefs "remain interested" in extending contract-year WR Tyreek Hill. Analysis: Now that the assault accusations are behind Hill -- for now -- the sides can try to concentrate on football and business matters. Hill is entering the final year of his rookie deal but obviously has a concerning off-field history, one that is, as Paylor puts it, going to require "both sides to work through some things." That likely means some language in Hill's potential extension that keeps the Chiefs safe should Hill slip up off the field. Prior to th... (More)1 day
6.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids suspension (Dynasty League Football) Tyreek Hill will not be suspended by the league after the NFL was unable to find enough evidence to do so. Analysis: The NFL conducted a four month investigation of Hill after he was investigated by the police for allegedly breaking his son's arm. The NFL came to a similar conclusion as the judge who ruled over Hill's criminal proceedings, in that there just wasn't enough evidence to confirm Hill was guilty of violating the leagues' policies on proper conduct. The Chiefs organization has yet to issue a statement in regards t... (More)1 day
7.NFL won't suspend Tyreek Hill; free to p... (Rotoworld) The NFL announced it will not suspend Tyreek Hill, who was accused of assaulting his son earlier in the offseason. Analysis: The NFL conducted a four-month investigation on the matter and determined there was insufficient evidence that Hill violated the personal-conduct policy. When news of this matter initially broke months ago, things looked extremely troubling for Hill. But by the end of it, cracks in the case began to split open, and it appeared Hill genuinely might have been being set up by his ex-fiance. Hill is now free to report to camp and go about his normal routine. For f... (More)1 day
8.No suspension for Tyreek Hill (FFToday) NFL will not discipline Chiefs’ WR , who was accused of assaulting his son. League could not find evidence he did; it will leave open case if further evidence emerges, but Hill is free to report to camp, practice and play this season. Analysis: From the league - "based on the evidence presently available the NFL cannot concluded that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy." After the initial rush to judgement, we got a sense over the last few weeks that the potential suspension was going to be 0-4 games. Hill hasn't been vindicated, but he is allowed to resume activities with the team. Hill remains a top end WR1 as long as ... (More)1 day
9.Elway is excited about quarterback situa... (Rotoworld) Broncos GM John Elway said he is excited about the quarterback situation. Analysis: The Broncos have struggled at quarterback since Peyton Manning's retirement, but Elway believes the arrivals of Joe Flacco and second-rounder Drew Lock may have changed their fortunes. "It's a hard position to fill," Elway said. "Hopefully with Joe we've got it solidified with Drew working under him." Elway added Flacco has earned the confidence of the rest of the roster. Perhaps that is true, but Flacco's recent history suggests he will be yet another disappointing option.2 days
10.Drew Lock a training camp holdout? (FFToday) Negotiations between the Broncos and rookies Dalton Risner and have snagged to the point the team may have a couple second-round training camp holdouts. According to multiple sources, Lock’s agent is seeking a "quarterback premium," which is common for QBs taken in the first and third rounds. Lock was taken in the second round. (Second-round QBs since 2014 did not receive a premium). The premium Lock is seeking would mean either more money or more full guarantees in Lock’s contract than Risner’s slotted amount. And Risner’s agent understandably doesn’t want to take less than the player selected behind him Anal... (More)4 days
11.Zay Jones: Gearing up for training camp (RotoWire) Jones (undisclosed) should be ready for the start of training camp Nate Mendelson of the Bills' official website reports. Analysis: Jones, Cole Beasley (abdomen) and Robert Foster (foot) all missed June minicamp, temporarily leaving John Brown unquestioned as the top receiving threat. It remains to be seen how the Bills divide snaps between the four wide receivers, with each boasting a reasonable case for consistent playing time. Jones led the team in targets, catches, receiving yards and touchdowns last season, but his averages of 11.6 yards per catch and 6.4 per target were far from impressive. Even his late-season TD outburst left... (More)5 days
12.Robert Foster: Expected back for camp (RotoWire) Foster (foot) should be a full go for the start of training camp, Nate Mendelson of the Bills' official website reports. Analysis: Foster missed part of June minicamp with a foot injury, but competition for snaps is his larger concern after the Bills signed John Brown and Cole Beasley (abdomen) during the offseason. With Zay Jones (undisclosed) also still around, the team has four wide receivers that can make a decent case for regular playing time.5 days
13.Chad Williams likely to be cut (Rotoworld) The Arizona Republic expects the Cardinals to move on from Chad Williams. Analysis: Williams became expendable after Arizona drafted a trio of receivers. In a new regime, he's unlikely to make it past final cuts. Williams has good size and is still only 24, so it's possible he could fetch a late-round pick. Williams may be auditioning for other teams this preseason.7 days
