The two-year, $20 million contract Robby Anderson signed with the Carolina Panthers this offseason is looking like one of the steals of free agency, and he has become the focal point of an impressive offense in Carolina.
Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden seemingly put an end to speculation that his team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday might be postponed or moved a second time due to a positive COVID-19 test this week.
Saints receiver Emmanuel Sanders will miss Sunday's game against the Panthers after testing positive for COVID-19, coach Sean Payton said Friday. Receiver Michael Thomas has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.
Giants running back Saquon Barkley will have surgery next week to repair his torn ACL. Barkley will have the surgery on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. That’s 39 days after Barkley suffered the season-ending injury on September 20. Doctors wanted to give Barkley time to let the swelling lessen in his strained […]
Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham looked frustrated at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Steelers. It’s easy to see why. Beckham caught just two passes for 25 yards on Sunday, continuing a disappointing trend for Beckham in Cleveland: He’s just not the same player he was early in his career with the Giants. This […]
This year’s NFC East is well on its way to earning a special place in NFL history, as the worst division ever. The worst cumulative record in NFL history for a division was the 2008 NFC West, which went 22-42, a .344 winning percentage. The NFC East is well below that. Currently the four teams […]
The Saints placed receiver Bennie Fowler on injured reserve Friday. Fowler revealed why Friday night: He had shoulder surgery. He posted a photo on Instagram, sitting on a couch with his right arm in a sling. “Rotator repaired. Labrum repaired,” Fowler wrote. “Support of family, friends and teammates unending. “Count it all joy when you […]
The Bears removed Badara Traore from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. The practice squad offensive lineman went on the list Oct. 10. Following Traore’s positive test, the Bears kept their practice squad players at home for a couple of days, rather than coming into the team’s facility, out of an abundance of caution. They had no […]
The Bears added pass rusher Khalil Mack to the injury report Friday. Mack did not practice because of a back injury. He was a full participant Thursday. “I think we’ll be OK,” coach Matt Nagy said, via Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune. “The back deal is more than anything just soreness. It’s probably just […]
The NFL already has had an unprecedented number of rescheduled games. The NFL hopes that won’t continue. In a memo sent to all teams on Friday by NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent, the league pointed out that it has “made more in-season scheduling modifications than in any previous season.” “These adjustments have […]
As the date for the potential return of Antonio Brown approached, we floated this idea on PFT Live: Would one team’s interest in Brown prompt other teams to get involved? That’s quite possibly what happened, with Seattle’s acknowledged interest in Brown prompting Tampa Bay to swoop in and close the deal. That leads to a […]
The news that the Buccaneers have agreed to terms with receiver Antonio Brown is a bit of a surprise on the surface, given that coach Bruce Arians had said he’s not interested. Taking a closer look at their current approach to constructing a roster, it’s really not surprising. “It’s a one-year team,” one executive with […]
The Steelers cut veteran punter Dustin Colquitt on Friday. The move came days after coach Mike Tomlin said, via Brooke Pryor of ESPN, that the team’s “punting is not up to snuff.” They worked out Jordan Berry on Monday, and Berry will return to the Steelers in time to punt Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN […]
Well, that didn’t take long. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Buccaneers and Antonio Brown have agreed to a one-year deal that will reunite the star receiver with quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bruce Arians. The sides still must finalize language, and Brown must pass both a physical and COVID-19 protocols, Schefter adds, but the […]
The Buccaneers, who already have Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski, soon could have another star weapon for star quarterback Tom Brady. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the Bucs are “very close” to a deal with the still suspended Brown. A report this afternoon broke the news that Brown will visit the Bucs. […]
Week Seven of the 2020 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Eagles and it continues with 12 more games on Sunday, which means that the 24 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday. The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their final […]
Baker Mayfield probably shouldn’t have played last week. He did not look like himself with a chest injury against the Steelers, completing 56 percent of his passes, taking four sacks and throwing two interceptions, including a pick-six, before being pulled after 42 snaps. The Browns quarterback was off the injury report Friday after a “great […]
The Seahawks were linked with Antonio Brown this week, but another NFC team is reportedly bringing him in for a visit this weekend. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Buccaneers will meet with Brown on Saturday. Brown was briefly teammates with Bucs quarterback Tom Brady in New England last season. Adam Schefter […]
The Raiders’ preparation for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers hit a snag when right tackle Trent Brown tested positive for COVID-19 this week. Brown’s contacts with the team’s other starting offensive linemen and safety Johnathan Abram led to those players being held out of practice all week as well. Based on the timing of his […]
The 49ers will be without both of their starting safeties for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt have both been ruled out for Week 7. Ward was added to the injury report on Friday and did not participate in practice due to a quad injury. Tartt is sidelined by a groin […]
The Cardinals are bringing back a familiar face to help their pass rush. Arizona will send a 2021 sixth-round pick to the Giants in exchange for Markus Golden. Golden was a 2015 second-round pick of the Cardinals and spent four seasons with the team before leaving as a free agent. Golden had 12.5 sacks during […]
Wide receiver Dante Pettis last played in a game in Week Four and the right phone call in the coming days could make it the final game he ever plays for the 49ers. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday, via Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, that the team has taken a […]
A bad season for Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins has had another misstep. Haskins was fined $4,833 for violating the team’s COVID-19 protocols, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. While the team was sequestered at its hotel, where no one other than essential staff is supposed to be, Haskins made a reservation for a family friend to […]
