  Ravens | Mark Andrews may receive extension    Mon Jan 25, 06:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews is one of the players the team will try to sign to a contract extension, according to general manager Eric DeCosta.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Andrews, a third-round pick out of Oklahoma in the 2018 NFL draft, is not only a favorite target of QB Lamar Jackson but he's one of the best tight ends in the game. Heading into a contract year in 2021, Andrews could get paid sooner rather than later in a move that would ultimately save the Ravens money so long as Andrews continues to play at a high level.

Footballguys view: Weber and Williams are players to watch in super deep dynasty formats. Partly because of their skill but partly because the Packers running back room is going to look different in 2021. Both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are set to be unrestricted free agents this offseason.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi agreed to terms to become the new offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Lombardi has been a rising star in coaching circles over the last five years with the Saints. He'll be in charge of running an offense with potential superstar quarterback Justin Herbert. His relationship with Herbert will be key, but Lombardi has learned a lot working with Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford (for one year) before that.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh settles on Matt Canada to run offense    Mon Jan 25, 03:19 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterbacks coach Matt Canada is reportedly finalizing a deal with the team to become the offensive coordinator Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Canada has worked in the college ranks for years and will get a larger role with the Steelers. His fresh perspective could help jump-start the Steelers offense. Canada will be working with an aging Ben Roethlisberger, but having young wide receivers like Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and James Washington should help.

  Bills | Cole Beasley played with serious leg injury    Mon Jan 25, 02:07 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (leg) told reporters Monday, Jan. 25, that he broke his fibula in Week 16 but that it wasn't a full break. He also added that he won't need surgery.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Anyone who watched Beasley during the playoffs could tell that he wasn't quite himself. It's good news he doesn't need surgery, so with some rest we'll see him come back as a favorite target of QB Josh Allen once again in 2021.

  Lions | Duce Staley hired in Detroit    Mon Jan 25, 11:53 AM

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley was hired as assistant head coach/running backs for the Detroit Lions Monday, Jan. 25.

Former Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn has signed on as the offensive coordinator, and now Staley comes on board to help run the offense and the backfield. Staley has been thought of as a potential head coach but was passed over with the Eagles. Now, he'll join a new staff and a new team to further advance his career.

  Packers | Green Bay falls in NFC title game    Sun Jan 24, 06:24 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Aaron Jones, who left the game early due to injury, left the team with 27 yards on six rushes. RB Jamaal Williams ran seven times for 23 yards and added four receptions for 22 yards. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with a game-high 115 yards on four receptions and a score, while WR Davante Adams had nine grabs for 67 yards and a score on 15 targets. WR Allen Lazard checked in with three receptions for 62 yards, while TE Marcedes Lewis had three grabs for 28 yards. TE Robert Tonyan also checked in with four grabs, 22 yards and a score. CB Jaire Alexander led the way with two interceptions, while totaling three total tackles and three passes defensed.

Footballguys view: Rodgers had a lot of chances to take control of this game in the second half after his team fell behind 18 points, but the Packers offense wasn't good enough in the red zone and Matt LaFleur chose to kick a field goal instead of going for it on fourth and goal at the 8, down 8 with about two minutes left. Jones has probably played his last down as a Packer, and Williams is also a free agent. Valdes-Scantling had a big game after playing only one snap the NFC title game last year. Adams impact on the game was not as big as expected and if anything Rodgers overreliance on him in the red zone hurt the team. The Packers will go back to the drawing board after getting one game from the Super Bowl two years in a row.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay headed for Super Bowl LV    Sun Jan 24, 06:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 passes for 280 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 24. It will be his 10th Super Bowl appearance, and the Bucs are the first team to play the game in their home stadium. RB Leonard Fournette ran 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 19 yards, RB Ronald Jones rushed 10 times for 16 yards, WR Chris Godwin racked up five receptions for a team-best 110 yards on nine targets and WR Mike Evans added three receptions for 51 yards and a score on eight targets. WR Scott Miller also cashed in his three targets for two catches, 36 yards and a touchdown, while TE Rob Gronkowski was limited to one catch for 29 yards on his lone target. TE Cameron Brate picked up three grabs for 19 yards and a score, while WR Tyler Johnson rounded things out with one catch for 16 yards. LB Devin White led the way defensively with a staggering game-high 15 total tackles, including nine of the solo variety.

Footballguys view: Brady wasn't the reason the Bucs won, but he did have two good long passes to offset his three interceptions, which his defense did a great job of minimizing in the story of the outcome of the game. Leonard Fournette goes to the Super Bowl with Tom Brady after his 2017 Jaguars team was ousted by Brady. Godwin had great hands deep on his key play early, while Evans hands were more suspect, although the interception off of his hands in the red zone was more on Brady than him. Tampa Bay will be the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium.
