  NFL | Le'Veon Bell down to three teams    Thu Oct 15, 10:22 AM

Free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell plans to sign with either the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs or Buffalo Bills as early as Thursday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Bell lives in Miami, so playing for the Dolphins makes a lot of sense. The Chiefs are Super Bowl contenders...and so are the Bills...and that has to be enticing for Bell. We should see him land with a new team in the near future.

North Dakota State QB Trey Lance announced Tuesday, Oct. 6, he's declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft. He's leaving school to focus on training.

Footballguys view: Lance could be a top-10 pick in the 2021 NFL draft. He went 17-0 as a starting quarterback and only threw one interception in his college career. Lance is a 6-foot-4, 228-pound dual-threat prospect who is one of the most intriguing quarterbacks in this class behind Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) and Justin Fields (Ohio State).

  NFL | Devonta Freeman nearing a decision?    Mon Sep 14, 04:05 PM

Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) told NFL insider Josina Anderson on Monday, Sept. 14, that he is 'ready for whatever team needs a (veteran running back)' and that he is currently choosing between four teams.

Footballguys view: After Week 1, veteran's salaries are not fully guaranteed so it's not a surprise that Freeman would be signing now. He did visit with the Jaguars before the start of the regular season but they're not the only team interested. We should see Freeman land with a team sometime in the near future.

  NFL | Adrian Peterson receiving interest    Fri Sep 4, 01:39 PM

Free agent RB Adrian Peterson has received interest from a 'couple of teams' hours after being released by the Washington Football Team on Friday, Sept. 4, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Peterson was a steady presence in the Washington backfield and he was having a solid camp. Some team will pick him up, perhaps even before Week 1 as a reserve/veteran depth.

  NFL | Leonard Fournette clears waivers    Tue Sep 1, 05:01 PM

Updating a previous story, free-agent RB Leonard Fournette (Jaguars) officially cleared waivers Tuesday, Sept. 1, and is now a free agent.

Footballguys view: Fournette should get some interest now that he's on the open market. No team was willing to touch his salary and that's why nobody picked him up via waivers or traded a late-round pick for him when the Jaguars were trying to shop him. We could see him with a new team before the end of the week.

  NFL | Leonard Fournette files grievance    Tue Sep 1, 04:21 PM

Free-agent RB Leonard Fournette (Jaguars) filed a grievance against the Jacksonville Jaguars Tuesday, Sept. 1, to try to recoup the $4.167 million in base salary he was owed that was voided when he was released Monday, Aug. 31, according to a source.

  NFL | Several AFC North clubs interested in Jadeveon Clowney?    Sat Aug 29, 12:55 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have interest in free-agent DE Jadeveon Clowney (Seahawks), according to Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline, who has heard from multiple league sources that they appear to be the favorite to sign him. The Pittsburgh Steelers could also have interest in Clowney if he's still available near the end of training camp, although they don't have much salary cap space available.

Footballguys view: Clowney would bring yet another ferocious defensive player to the Ravens defense. The Steelers should be interested for the same reason but also to block him from going to their division rival (and a true Super Bowl contender). Clowney has had interest across the league and with the season approaching he could sign in the near future.

  NFL | Two teams interested in Ziggy Ansah    Sat Aug 22, 10:15 AM

The Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens are reportedly monitoring free-agent DL Ziggy Ansah (Lions). He has bulked up to 280 pounds and recently sent a workout video to NFL teams to prove that his shoulder is completely healthy.

Footballguys view: Ansah has had trouble staying healthy, but if he's physically sound, he can still provide edge rush contributions. The Bills and Ravens are both deficient in that area and both teams have big expectations this year, so it makes sense that they would be monitoring him.

  NFL | Logan Ryan sees himself as safety    Mon Aug 10, 04:07 PM

Free-agent CB Logan Ryan (Titans) is letting teams know that he considers himself a safety and not a cornerback like he has been listed.

Footballguys view: Ryan was a playmaker from the slot last year for the Titans but has not yet found a home in free agency. He's a hybrid player who can line up at both corner and safety. Reports have indicated earlier this offseason that Ryan wants more than $10 million per season.

  NFL | Robert Nkemdiche talking with teams    Sat Aug 1, 03:14 PM

Free agent DT Robert Nkemdiche (Dolphins) has had recent discussions with unidentified teams with a number of defensive tackles opting out of the 2020 season. Nkemdiche reportedly has dropped his weight to 315 pounds, down from 345.

Footballguys view: Nkemdiche has physical gifts with strength and quickness but he was a bust after being a first-round pick of the Cardinals in the 2016 NFL draft. He got a chance with the Dolphins but that didn't last and he's been out of football since last November. Injuries (knee) and lack of conditioning caused him to wash out quickly. We'll see if the number of DTs opting out gives Nkemdiche another chance.

  NFL | Antonio Brown does not plan to appeal    Fri Jul 31, 04:13 PM

Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) has accepted his eight-game suspension and is not expected to appeal the suspension, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Brown just wants to play in the NFL. We'll see if he can not be disruptive in any manner if/when a new team picks him up. Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been pushing for the team to add Brown. The Seahawks could also have interest as Brown has caught passes from QB Russell Wilson this offseason.

  NFL | Antonio Brown suspension starts Week 1    Fri Jul 31, 02:59 PM

Updating a previous report, free agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) begins his eight-game disciplinary suspension in Week 1 of the 2020 season, regardless if he has signed with a team or not, per a league source.

Footballguys view: More clarity on the Brown situation. A team like the Ravens or the Seahawks might be interested in signing Brown to get him into training camp. Once the regular season begins, Brown would have to stay away from the team facility. Getting him signed in the near future would give him about a month to prepare with his new team before serving the 8-game suspension.

  NFL | Antonio Brown would face 8-game ban    Fri Jul 31, 02:52 PM

Free agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) would have to serve an eight-game suspension for violations of the league's personal-conduct policy if and when he does sign with a new team, a league source said Friday, July 31.

Footballguys view: This gives us some clarity in the situation. Brown has interest from teams out there, and perhaps a team like the Seahawks or the Ravens would take a chance on him. If that happens, Brown would have to miss half of the regular season. We'll see if this prompts some team to sign him so he can go to training camp before serving his 8-game suspension. Stay tuned.

  NFL | Matt Jones garnering interest    Thu Jul 30, 11:57 AM

Free-agent RB Matt Jones (XFL) has been in contact with teams and has garnered interest.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick (Washington) in the 2015 NFL draft, Jones was a banger at Florida and that's what he was in the pros. The last time he was in the NFL was when he was trying to make the Eagles 53-man roster in the 2018 preseason. We'll see if some team wants to pick up the big-bodied veteran back.

  NFL | Martavis Bryant not ready to play    Sat Jul 25, 05:42 PM

Free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) is receiving interest from several teams, but he still has not applied for reinstatement at this point.

Footballguys view: Bryant hopes to play at some point but still needs to do more work. It sounds like Bryant may not play in 2020 but could be aiming for a return in 2021. Bryant will be 28-years old next offseason but it sounds like some teams could still have interest.

  NFL | LeSean McCoy talking with teams    Fri Jul 24, 02:20 PM

Free agent RB LeSean McCoy (Chiefs) said Friday, July 24, that he's had recent discussions with a 'few' unnamed teams as he seeks to continue his career. 'But I think the biggest thing is to find the right fit,' McCoy said on NFL Network. 'Find the right fit for me. I think at the point in my career, not just playing football. I want to play for the right team. I want to be able to contribute. I want to be able to win another championship. You can't go from playing with the Chiefs with all that talent and winning a championship to now just trying to play. I'm the type of guy, I want to come in a room, challenge the running backs get them better. Be a veteran leader. All the type of things I want to bring to a team. So, just got to find the right fit for me.'

Footballguys view: The Eagles come to mind immediately as a possible destination considering his history with the team and their desire to add a veteran back. McCoy hurt the ADP of Damien Williams when he signed with the Chiefs after Buffalo released him right before the season, but by the end of the season, McCoy was a healthy scratch, so don't let him affect ADP too much wherever he lands.

  NFL | Antonio Brown actually not done    Thu Jul 23, 10:26 AM

Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) posted on Instagram that he doesn't want to retire and called on the NFL to finish its personal conduct investigations. 'I have complied with each and every ask of your investigations throughout the past 11 months,' Brown wrote. 'You have had access to all of my phones, you know what the deal is in each and every situation that the media has distorted. I have been seeing the therapist you asked me to, I have worked on all aspects of my life this past year and have become a better man because of it.'

Footballguys view: He just can't walk away, and his latest retirement (at least the third time he's done that this calendar year) didn't last long. When the NFL makes a decision on his legal issues then Brown should be back in the league. We expect teams like the Seahawks, Buccaneers and Washington to potentially show interest.

  NFL | Devonta Freeman motivated to sign    Wed Jul 22, 09:55 AM

Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent, and Rosenhaus said Freeman is hoping to sign somewhere soon.

Footballguys view: Freeman changed agents earlier this month and Rosenhaus is trying to get something done for his new client. There have been a few teams interested in the veteran back and with training camps kicking off we could see Freeman find a new team. Any squad who adds him does so for veteran depth and not as any sort of immediate starting option.
