  Bills | Buffalo inks 13 to futures deals    Tue Jan 26, 04:52 PM

Free-agent OT Trey Adams, TE Nate Becker, RBs Christian Wade and Antonio Williams, DT Brandin Bryant, DEs Bryan Cox Jr. and Mike Love, WRs Tanner Gentry, Jake Kumerow and Duke Williams, CB Dane Jackson, S Josh Thomas and QB Davis Webb signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

Footballguys view: Gentry was a favorite target of QB Josh Allen in college at the University of Wyoming. He's a try-hard slot receiver who has bounced around the league. Let's see if working with Allen again can help him stick on a roster.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers unlikely to leave Green Bay    Tue Jan 26, 03:48 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is almost certain to remain with the team in 2021, according to comments made by team president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy on Tuesday, Jan. 26.'I'll say this: There's no way in heck that Aaron is not going to be on the Packers. I mean, he is going to be the MVP of the league, might have had his best year ever. He's our unquestioned leader and, you know, we're not idiots,' Murphy told WNFL Radio.

Footballguys view: Things seem cold right now between Rodgers and the Packers, but that might not really be the case. Rodgers kind of softened some of his comments in a recent interview with Pat Mcafee. He's too important to that team and those fans, so we have a feeling things will stay in place. Let's see if the future changes that.

  49ers | Nick Mullens underwent surgery in December    Tue Jan 26, 03:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens - an impending free agent - underwent elbow surgery in late December of 2020, and the damage was not as extensive as initially feared. As a result, he was able to avoid Tommy John surgery and is expected to be fully recovered by the start of training camp, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: Mullens might have lost some money in the 2020 season. He was once again thrust into action as a starter this past season but did not look good. Mullens might not be more than a below-average backup.

  Rams | GM refuses to commit to Jared Goff    Tue Jan 26, 02:47 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff is not guaranteed a roster spot for the 2021 season, according to comments made by general manager Les Snead on Tuesday, Jan. 26. Snead reportedly declined to provide a yes/no answer when he was 'asked repeatedly that there's a scenario' where Goff wouldn't be on the roster and referenced a recent quote from Aaron Rodgers about the future being 'a beautiful mystery,' according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry.

Footballguys view: It would be tough to get rid of Goff due to the salary cap, but where there's a will there's a way. Things seem shaky right now for Goff and the Rams, but that could all clear up by the time free agency starts.

  Packers | Jordan Love not ready    Tue Jan 26, 11:12 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love would not be the front runner to be the starting quarterback if QB Aaron Rodgers left, in the opinion of beat writer Rob Demovsky. Love struggled with accuracy in practice all season, and quarterback Tim Boyle would be more suited to open the season as starter.

Footballguys view: Boyle was the backup to Aaron Rodgers for the 2020 season. Love was a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft out of Utah State, but he was obviously raw last year at the Senior Bowl and needs more time to develop. Rogers said in an interview "I don't think that there's any reason I wouldn't be back." Stay tuned.

Washington Football Team QB Kyle Allen (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot on his surgically repaired ankle.

  NFL | Kyle Trask to miss Senior Bowl    Mon Jan 25, 08:08 PM

Florida QB Kyle Trask (ankle) will not participate in the Senior Bowl because of an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Trask is a pocket passer with confidence and accuracy. He's seen as a mid-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft but with a good performance at the Senior Bowl he could've snuck into the second round.

  Ravens | Two may compete for No. 2 QB job    Mon Jan 25, 06:26 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Tyler Huntley and Trace McSorley may compete for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, according to general manager Eric DeCosta. DeCosta did not rule out the possibility of signing a veteran quarterback at some point.

Footballguys view: Huntley was thrust into action in the playoffs when Lamar Jackson was hurt and showed the game is not too big for him. Both quarterbacks are mobile and can damage a defense with their legs. We'll see how that competition shakes out in training camp next season.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson to begin contract talks    Mon Jan 25, 10:19 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson could sign an extension this offseason, according to general manager Eric DeCosta, who will begin talks with Jackson in 10 days.

Footballguys view: That's been expected for quite some time. The work to get Jackson signed will likely go to the summer. He will be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league when his new contract is in place.

  Bills | Buffalo falls short of Super Bowl    Sun Jan 24, 10:22 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed 28 of his 48 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and rushed seven times for 88 yards in a 38-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

  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.

  Patriots | NE may inquire about Matthew Stafford    Sun Jan 24, 12:32 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford is expected to be traded this offseason, and the New England Patriots likely will least inquire about Stafford's availability, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are at a crossroads as a franchise and their quarterback decision will tell a lot about where Bill Belichick thinks they are.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes to visit specialist    Sun Jan 24, 11:51 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) was diagnosed with a case of turf toe on his left foot after last week's Divisional Round playoff game versus the Cleveland Browns. Even though he took the majority of snaps during practice this week, he is scheduled to see a specialist at the end of the season to determine if he'll need to undergo surgery.

Footballguys view: This could be a key to the game because Mahomes is at his most dangerous on the move and he likes to make lots of off platform throws that rely on precision.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett will have chance to start    Sat Jan 23, 07:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will be under consideration to be the starting quarterback in 2021, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'I don't want to discount Jacoby,' Ballard said. 'We still like Jacoby Brissett and think he's a good player. Let's not take Jacoby out of the mix completely here.'

Footballguys view: Brissett is a top end backup, but he might only be an adequate starter, which would be a disappointing route for a team in a Super Bowl window to take. Brissett has some value in 2QB/Superflex leagues, but in 1QB leagues he would be a pedestrian option at best.

  Panthers | Teddy Bridgewater not guaranteed to start    Sat Jan 23, 07:18 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater will be evaluated as new general manager Scott Fitterer assesses the current roster and isn't guaranteed to be the starter for the 2021 season. 'I'm not going to get into hypotheticals, but what I will tell you is we will be on every deal,' Fitterer said when talking about being aggressive in transactions this offseason. 'We're going to look at a lot of people, bring a lot of people in the building, really churn the roster on the back end. Just really take a look at a lot of different people to see what's out there, what fits our team and how we can build this going forward.'

Footballguys view: Really he shouldn't unless the Panthers have no other choice. Bridgewater's limitations in arm strength and red zone play held back the offense and the Panthers should try to upgrade at the position this offseason.

  Lions | Potential deadline for Matthew Stafford trade    Sat Jan 23, 06:36 PM

Updating a previous story, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford is likely to be traded before the fifth day of the 2021 league year in March, when he is due a $10 million bonus.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford likely done in DET    Sat Jan 23, 06:11 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has expressed a desire for a fresh start and the team plans to begin exploring trade possibilities in the coming weeks, according to sources Saturday, Jan. 23.

Footballguys view: A trade would make sense for both sides as Stafford shouldn't be interested in another rebuild at this point in his career and new general manager Brad Holmes should want more material to craft the roster in his image. Washington, San Francisco, Indianapolis, and Denver should be very interested with at least 4-5 potential suitors if not a lot more. Stafford could change a team's trajectory as much as Tom Brady did last year.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes' toe not an issue    Sat Jan 23, 05:19 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) said Friday, Jan. 22, the toe injury he suffered in the AFC Divisional Round against the Cleveland Browns is 'feeling a lot better.'

Footballguys view: What else is he supposed to say? We're sure that Mahomes is going to give it his all with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. However, we will also be watching closely to see if this toe problem springs up again. It can impact how much and how effective he scrambles plus it can effect his pass placement.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers excels in clean pocket    Sat Jan 23, 03:10 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leads the league this season with 42 touchdown passes throwing from a clean pocket, per Pro Football Focus data.

  Jets | Deshaun Watson reportedly prefers NYJ    Sat Jan 23, 01:51 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson reportedly said earlier this week that the New York Jets are his top preference among the teams he'd like to be traded to because of their recent hiring of head coach Robert Saleh, according to a report Saturday, Jan. 23, from the Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: Saleh was considered by some to be the 'gem' of the potential head-coaching candidates that were out there. Watson has a no-trade clause so he will get to choose the team he wants to be traded to. We'll see if the Jets in fact put together a blockbuster deal, likely to include Sam Darnold, for Watson at some point this offseason.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson in on OC talks    Sat Jan 23, 11:59 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he has been involved in talks for candidates to fill the offensive coordinator opening.

'Coach and I have definitely been talking about that, (general manager John Schneider) too as well. We've had some ... great dialogue about the thought process of who we want, the leader ... the innovator, all that kind of different stuff that you want. I think that's the super critical thing, obviously at this point in my career because you spend every day with that person.'

Footballguys view: That's what smart teams do...they include their superstar quarterback in the process. Wilson should be involved in who they hire for offensive coordinator. The team can use balance to attack defenses, but the next system needs to be as Wilson-friendly as possible.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert was pressured on 230 dropbacks in 2020, the second most of any quarterback, and he recorded a league-best 99.4 passer rating on those plays.

Footballguys view: A strong sign of a good quarterback is what he does under duress. The film and the advance data both show how Herbert is cool under fire. He's not the type of player who feels the rush and it shows in his play. It looks like the Chargers got a franchise quarterback.

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Dwayne Haskins (Washington Football Team) on Thursday, Jan. 21, agreed to a one-year contract offer from the Pittsburgh Steelers, per a source.

Footballguys view: The Steelers take a chance on the former first-round pick here. Haskins was Washington's top pick in the 2019 NFL draft, but he failed to impress while starting 13 games over two seasons. He'll try to get his career back on track but Haskins is no lock for the 53-man roster.
