  • Chargers moving on from Rivers January 27, 2020
    The Chargers have "moved on" from QB Philip Rivers, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. Rivers has spent the past 16 seasons with the franchise after being traded from the Giants during the 2004 draft. The 38-year-old reportedly wants to continue playing, so we'll see who he draws interest from in free agency. The Chargers, […]
  • Brees pondering football future January 26, 2020
    Saints QB Drew Brees hasn't yet decided whether he'll return for another season in 2020. He's set to be a free agent in March but said that he won't play for a team other than New Orleans. "At this stage of my career, it's not a given that I'm coming back every year, but when […]
  • Fuller has hernia surgery January 26, 2020
    Texans WR Will Fuller had sports hernia surgery this week after aggravating his groin injury in the loss to the Chiefs, according to the Houston Chronicle.

  • Hunt finds legal trouble January 25, 2020
    Browns RB Kareem Hunt was cited for speeding this week, and police found small amounts of marijuana during the traffic stop, according to multiple reports. Hunt avoided drug charges in the situation, which seems minor given that he didn't even get arrested. It's more notable, however, because off-field issues got Hunt booted from Kansas City. […]
  • Vikings making Kubiak OC January 23, 2020
    The Associated Press reports that the Vikings will name Gary Kubiak their new OC. Kubiak spent 2019 on the Minnesota staff as an offensive adviser and assistant to HC Mike Zimmer.

  • Manning to retire January 23, 2020
    Giants QB Eli Manning is set to announce his retirement on Friday, ESPN reports. The 39-year-old will finish his 16-season NFL career with a (perhaps fitting) 117-117 record. Among 85 QBs with 3,000+ career pass attempts since the 1970 merger, Manning ranks 32nd in completion rate, 44th in yards per attempt and 33rd in QB […]
  • Fitzpatrick expected back in Miami January 22, 2020
    Dolphins GM Chris Grier "fully expects" QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to be back for 2020. He's due a reasonable $8 million, so it makes plenty of sense to bring him back even if he doesn't start all year. Miami is a strong bet to select a QB in the 1st round of this spring's draft, but […]
  • Carson doesn't need surgery January 22, 2020
    Seahawks RB Chris Carson doesn't need surgery on his fractured hip, he told reporters last week. He added that he hopes to resume running by the start of Seattle's offseason program but wouldn't commit to being ready for training camp. That's a reminder that this is a significant injury he'll be returning from. We'll keep […]
  • Penny iffy for start of season January 22, 2020
    Seahawks HC Pete Carroll admitted that RB Rashaad Penny's availability for the start of the 2020 season is in question. He tore multiple ligaments, including the ACL, in his left knee on December 8. "He’s got six or seven months ahead of him that are going to be really challenging," Carroll said. "We’ll have to […]
  • Edelman had shoulder surgery January 22, 2020
    Patriots WR Julian Edelman had his shoulder surgery last week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A previous report said the procedure would repair a separated AC joint in Edelman's left shoulder. The rehab isn't expected to be lengthy, per Schefter, and Edelman is expected to be ready for the start of the offseason program. He […]
