Broncos | Ryan Pope nearing deal with Denver   Free-agent OT Ryan Pope (Packers) reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Denver Broncos on Tuesday, May 11.  05/11 12:09
Falcons | Elliott Fry released   Atlanta Falcons PK Elliott Fry was released Tuesday, May 11.  05/11 10:59
Packers | Aaron Rodgers engaged in talks   Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' side has engaged in contract discussions with the Packers to a degree, and the Packers have made a significant long-term offer. Footballguys View: The Packers are doing what they can to make Rodgers happy. We'll see if this significant offer is what Rodgers wanted in the first place. Earlier reports speculated the team had offered an extension for Rodgers but that wasn't to his liking. The damage may already have been done by now, but Green Bay isn't going to just give up (nor should they). This saga continues until the Packers get him an offer he likes or they trade him away (if they do it would have to be after June 1st).  05/11 08:55
Football Team | Dyami Brown excels at stretching the field   Washington Football Team WR Dyami Brown has registered 10 catches of at least 50 yards since the start of the 2019 season - the most in college football over that time - according to Pro Football Focus. Footballguys View: Dane Brugler, NFL Draft expert from The Athletic, described Brown as a "double-move aficionado" and it's true. Brown can break ankles on the field then he has the speed to run by defenders. He averaged over 20.0 yards per catch over the last two seasons and projects as a starter at the pro level. We'll see how he works into the mix on the depth chart in Washington with guys like Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.  05/10 19:33
Jets | Michael Carter a big play waiting to happen   New York Jets RB Michael Carter busted 29 runs of at least 20 yards over his final two seasons at North Carolina - the most in college football over that time - according to Pro Football Focus. Footballguys View: Carter has a ton of energy when he runs the ball. It takes a small amount of space and time for him to get to top speed and attack a defense. Carter needs to improve his pass-protection ability if he wants to be on the field during passing downs. He'll work into the mix with the Jets RBBC as a big-play option.  05/10 19:03
Falcons | No guarantees in Atlanta backfield   Atlanta Falcons RBs Mike Davis, Javian Hawkins, Caleb Huntley and Qadree Ollison are all expected to compete for touches in the backfield in 2021, according to comments made by running backs coach Desmond Kitchings. According to Tori McElhaney of The Athletic, Kitchens noted how competitive the running back group will be and that 'the door is wide open' for anyone to take over. Footballguys View: Davis has the experience and could come out on top but that's not a guarantee. We'll have to see how this competition shakes out during training camp. Davis (the first Falcons RB getting drafted) has a current ADP of RB35 (7.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.  05/10 18:22
Bengals | Jimmie Robinson to try out   Undrafted free-agent Jimmie Robinson (Bethune-Cookman) will participate in the Cincinnati Bengals' upcoming rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.  05/10 17:15
Lions | Josh Hill on retired list   Detroit Lions TE Josh Hill was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Monday, May 10.  05/10 16:00
Panthers | Carolina signs two players   Undrafted free-agent RB Spencer Brown (Alabama-Birmingham) and LB Paddy Fisher (Northwestern) signed with the Carolina Panthers Monday, May 10. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed. Footballguys View: Brown is a smooth running back who makes crisp cuts to find rushing lanes. He's stout as a runner and has the leg drive to run through arm tackles. He wasn't used as much as a receiver as he could have been but three-down ability is there. Brown is not overly fast, but we'll still monitor him in super deep dynasty formats.  05/10 15:57
Chiefs | Bryan Witzmann released   Kansas City Chiefs OG Bryan Witzmann was released Monday, May 10.  05/10 15:51
Chiefs | Jordan Ta'amu let go   Kansas City Chiefs QB Jordan Ta'amu was waived Monday, May 10.  05/10 15:49
Panthers | Frank Herron removed from roster   Carolina Panthers DE Frank Herron was waived Monday, May 10.  05/10 15:48
Browns | Cleveland adds Chase McLaughlin   Former New York Jets PK Chase McLaughlin was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns Monday, May 10.  05/10 15:32
Chiefs | Sean Culkin let go   Kansas City Chiefs TE Sean Culkin was released Monday, May 10.  05/10 15:30
Titans | Tennessee cuts three players   Tennessee Titans TE Parker Hesse, LB Matthew Orzech and LB Nate Orchard were waived Monday, May 10.  05/10 15:05
Packers | Two QBs to try out at minicamp   Free-agent QB Kurt Benkert (Falcons) and QB Chad Kelly (Colts) will participate in the Green Bay Packers rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to sources. Footballguys View: Benkert is a tall pocket passer who can spray passes all over the field. Kelly has talent but has never played up to his potential. The arm strength is there, and he's mobile enough to throw on the run or pick up yards with his legs. Both quarterbacks are doing what they can just to stay in the league.  05/10 14:32
Bengals | Cincinnati considering Dede Westbrook   Free-agent WR Dede Westbrook (Jaguars) has had preliminary conversations with the Cincinnati Bengals. Footballguys View: Westbrook has been getting some interest and should find a new home in the near future. The Bengals could use Westbrook for speed and veteran depth but he wouldn't see the field that much. They already have Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and 2021 first-round pick Ja'Marr Chase at the top of the depth chart.  05/10 13:25
Vikings | Dede Westbrook an option for MIN   Free-agent WR Dede Westbrook (Jaguars) has had preliminary conversations with the Minnesota Vikings. Footballguys View: There's been some rumblings about Westbrook recently and he should be able to find a new team in the near future. The Vikings could bring in Westbrook for some speed and veteran depth. Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson are fine starters but behind them the Vikings could look to upgrade.  05/10 13:24
Colts | Antwaun Woods meeting with Indianapolis   Free-agent DT Antwaun Woods (Cowboys) is scheduled to meet with the Indianapolis Colts Monday, May 10, according to a source.  05/10 13:20
Bengals | Trey Hopkins making good progress   Cincinnati Bengals C Trey Hopkins (knee) said his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament is going well and believes there is a chance he will be ready for the start of the regular season.  05/10 13:08
