First-round picks from the 2021 NFL Draft seem destined to make an immediate impact, but there are several Day 2 picks, including Elijah Moore, Christian Barmore and Rondale Moore who can surprise in 2021.
New England Patriots running back Damien Harris and San Francisco 49ers running back Trey Sermon are among the top players to target in the middle rounds at the position for 2021 fantasy football drafts.
The Indianapolis Colts will be without both Carson Wentz and Quenton Nelson to start the 2021 NFL season, as Nelson is now expected to undergo foot surgery to address a similar injury to the one that Wentz suffered last week.
Minnesota Vikings co-owner Mark Wilf is concerned about the impact that vaccine hesitancy is having on the players and the team. The Vikings are currently without quarterbacks Kellen Mond, Kirk Cousins and Nate Stanley -- all on the COVID-19/reserve list.
The Giants' first day of padded practice at training camp ended abruptly Tuesday when coach Joe Judge angrily addressed and punished his players for a teamwide brawl that included starting quarterback Daniel Jones at the bottom of the pile.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has found some silver linings to Lamar Jackson‘s absence from practice at training camp when it comes to getting backups ready to play, but the hope in Baltimore is that they won’t be needing Trace McSorley or Tyler Huntley on the field come the regular season. Getting Jackson totally up […]
Giants defensive back Logan Ryan leveled tight end Evan Engram in practice yesterday, leading to a team-wide brawl that had head coach Joe Judge furious. But Ryan said he and Engram were over it as soon as practice ended. Ryan said after practice that he went up to Engram in the team facility afterward with […]
The 49ers made a few roster moves on Wednesday, adding some depth to their tight ends room. San Francisco has signed tight end Joshua Perkins and announced the previously reported signing of cornerback B.W. Webb. Perkins did not appear in a game in 2020 after going on injured reserve with the Eagles during last year’s […]
The Saints have been busy when it comes to adding cornerbacks to the roster this week. Prince Amukamara and KeiVarae Russell agreed to deals with the team on Monday and another corner came onboard Wednesday. Agent Andy Ross announced that his client Adonis Alexander has signed with New Orleans. Alexander was picked in the sixth […]
The Browns may have gone against the conventional wisdom of analytics that would discourage paying big money to running backs in signing Nick Chubb to a three-year, $36.6 million extension. But they now have their strong tandem of Chubb and fellow running back Kareem Hunt under contract for at least the next two seasons. At […]
One of the several criticisms Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa faced in his rookie year was that he didn’t take enough downfield shots. Tagovailoa finished the season 30th among 35 qualified passers at 6.3 yards per attempt. He was just behind Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger and just ahead of Washington’s Alex Smith. So as Tagovailoa enters his […]
The NFL expertly handled the announcement of the punishment imposed on the Washington Football Team and owner Daniel Snyder, tucking the bad news into the late afternoon hours of the Thursday that preceded what ultimately was, for many, a four-day Fourth of July weekend. As a result, the league’s bizarre decision to not request a […]
The Eagles made a couple of moves in the secondary on Wednesday. Safety Andrew Adams has been activated from the COVID-19 reserve list. Cornerback Nate Meadors was waived with an injury designation in a corresponding move. Adams became one of the few Buccaneers free agents to leave the team when he signed a one-year deal […]
Veteran quarterback Josh Johnson is making yet another stop in his long and winding professional football career. Johnson is signing with the Jets today, his agent announced. 35-year-old Johnson was a fifth-round draft pick of the Buccaneers in 2008. He has also had stops on the 49ers, the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football […]
Giants receiver Kenny Golladay left Tuesday’s practice with an apparent hamstring injury but there’s some positive news on the recent free-agent signee. According to Dan Duggan of TheAthletic.com, Golladay’s hamstring injury is not considered significant. Golladay will undergo more tests on Wednesday, but the preliminary outlook is positive. Golladay missed the first two games of […]
Colts quarterback Carson Wentz and offensive lineman Quenton Nelson both found out this week that they’ll need foot surgery that will require 5-12 weeks to recover. There’s been no word yet on where in that range Wentz’s recovery time will fall, but Nelson seems to have no doubt that he’ll be good to go in […]
Before the Lions’ first padded practice on Tuesday, head coach Dan Campbell shared a story from his first training camp as a player that involved him getting in a fight on the first play of practice. Campbell said the point of the story wasn’t that he was looking for players to fight during Lions practice, […]
The Texans presumably have a plan in place when it comes to their handling of quarterback Deshaun Watson. They apparently have not shared it with new coach David Culley. Or, perhaps, they don’t trust him to not blurt it out during a press conference. As a result, Culley is getting regularly grilled about the status […]
Buffalo is adding an offensive lineman who has some experience in the AFC East. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Bills are signing Caleb Benenoch. Benenoch spent last season on the Patriots practice squad for his second stint with the team. He previously was with the club for a few weeks in 2019. He […]
Baltimore has added some depth at wide receiver. The Ravens announced on Wednesday morning that they’ve signed Michael Dereus. As Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com pointed out, Baltimore needed to add at the position because Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin are both dealing with hamstring injuries. First-round pick Rashod Bateman has also been sidelined by some […]
Receiver Mohamed Sanu‘s career fell off a cliff after being traded from the Falcons to the Patriots for a second-round pick during the 2019 regular season. Now in his second stint with the 49ers after being released last year, Sanu could be on the verge of a career rebirth. Signed last year by the 49ers, […]
The Panthers have continued to make moves after cutting safety J.T. Ibe for his dangerous hit to the head of receiver Keith Kirkwood during Tuesday’s practice. Carolina announced Wednesday morning that the club has signed safety Doug Middleton. Middleton spent last season bouncing between the Jaguars’ practice squad and active roster. He appeared in 10 […]
Before this year’s draft, Penei Sewell described himself as someone who comes off the ball with “violent intentions” and that helped convince the Lions to take him with the seventh overall pick. Sewell has been installed as the team’s right tackle, but he had to keep those violent intentions under wraps for quite a while. […]
Tuesday’s Panthers practice came to a halt during team drills because a hit by safety J.T. Ibe to the head of wide receiver Keith Kirkwood when he was coming down from trying to catch a pass left the wideout in need of medical attention. Kirkwood was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and would […]
Julio Jones is in training camp with the Titans, which means there’s a different look for the Falcons receiving corps this season. Calvin Ridley is now the No. 1 wideout and other players like Russell Gage, Christian Blake, and Olamide Zaccheaus have also been bumped up the depth chart after June’s trade. There’s also first-round […]
