Antonio Brown (WR,RMTC) - Rumours that teams have been headhunting him, but Steelrs have obviously said no.

Brandon Marshall (WR,SWRL) - Rumours of whether he will be released or not, Marshall denies, though he is due $7.5m for 2017

Ty Montgomery (RB,NP) - Is expected to be the lead back in Green Bay after Starks released (Lacy is a Free Agent)

Tony Romo (QB,NP) - Jerry Jones wants something in return for Romo, he could still end offseason in Dallas. Bills latest rumour, if they release Taylor.

Fudge you all, this is my year *

I'm an optimistic pessimist. 

I'm positive things will go wrong.

Just out of interest, have you heard anything from Patrick about the upcoming year?  Will have some mates who are keen to join if he doesn't want to be part of it (and if it isn't earmarked for someone else).

Going to get on that as soon as the Super Bowl is complete :) (Believe someone else is already earmarked), may have slots in #Payslaves as well.

2017 Offseason News (15/02-28/02)

Terrelle Pryor (WR,NP) - Browns have said they are going to Franchise tag Pryor if they don't work out a contract.

Martellus Bennett (TE,LCAL) - Patriots will not get into a bidding war for Bennett, as the best TE available it is likely he will get big money elsewhere.

Latavius Murray (RB,LOHA) - Murray's future is up in the air as no one is sure what the Raiders are going to do with him

Brandon Marshall (WR,SWRL) - Sounds like it is creeping towards him leaving the Jets, the saving would be huge for them.

Paul Perkins (RB, SWRL) - Is now the clear #1 for the Giants.

Sammie Coates (WR,MET) - Coates is recovering from groin surgery, should be back for camp.

News Updates


Kirk Cousins (NUCK) - Rumours of a Romo, Cousins threeway trade including the 49ers is rumoured to have been an attempt by Snyder to drive up the price teams might pay for Kirk Cousins.

Tony Romo (NP) - Jaguars have joined Broncos & Texans as possible landing spots for Romo, sounds like he will be paid as a top end back-up rather than as a low end starter, it is amazing how you can fall after two injury riddled seasons.

Mike Glennon (Free) - The Buccs have offered him a contract in range of $14m/yr which would make him the highest paid back-up in the league, if he gets to FA, the 49ers are definitely interested

Jimmy Garroppolo (Free) - It looks likely he will spend the season in New England as no one has come close to offering what they want for the QB, sounds like they want over a mid 1st in payment.

Tyrod Taylor (NUCK) - It is unlikely he remains in Buffalo as other teams hunt him, sound slike the Browns are the favourite to win him to their side, would be a great fit in that offense.

Chase Daniel (Free) - The Jets are looking at Daniel as an option to start for this season, would involve a trade with the Eagles (Eric Decker?) and he would bridge for them til Petty or Hackenberg are ready.

Brock Osweiller (LCAL) - Texans have said he will have to compete for the starting job, not sure who he would compete against, but they have also made comments along lines of not willing to pay starter money for Romo.

Colin Kaepernick (FAIR) - He has opted out of his 49ers contract and is now a free agent, small interest from Jets, but no one else seems interested.

AJ McCarron (Free) - Bengals want a 2nd round pick for him, he is third on the Browns list, after Jimmy G & Tyrod Taylor.

Running Backs

Adrian Peterson & Jamaal Charles (RMTC) - Sounds like neither is generating much attention, especially as there are plenty of other options who will be cheaper, and also the draft class looks excellent at the position as well. Probably the worst year for a FA Running Back

Ryan Mathews (FAIR) - It sounds like Mathews has played his last snap for the Eagles, he is due $4m this season, not guaranteed, likely to be traded or released by Draft Weekend.

Wendell Smallwood (GAUL) - Will be in the mix to start at RB for the Eagles, had a rough rookie year, but camp could see him win the role, though they could take a RB in the draft in higher rounds and then he is in trouble.

Rob Kelley (GAUL) - Gruden was quoited as saying they are hunting for a "Great" RB, this could be troublesome for Kelley, as he may have been good as starter, but if they bring in a big RB from the draft he will definitely get less touches (Matt Jones doesn't even look to be in the mix anymore.

Danny Woodhead (MET) - The 32yr old RB is in talks for a new contract with the Chargers, if no agreement by the end of the week he will be a Free Agent.

Le'Veon Bell (AY) - Has said he is happy to play under the franchise tag, is currently in talks for a long term contract though.

Ameer Abdullah (LOHA) - He has been medically cleared after his previous season injury.

Dallas Running Backs (RMTC) - Sounds like they are trying to trade away Alfred Morris, and sign Darren McFadden to a contract extension, this seems a strange choice to me, especially after DMC spent last season out with ANOTHER injury, while Morris looked solid behind the line.

CJ Prosise (NP) - Seattle have said that Prosise will compete with Rawls for the starting job.

Wide Receivers

Terrelle Pryor (NP) - The free agent WR has a lot of suitors and is going to get a big deal in Free Agency, Browns, Steelers, Giants, 49ers, Titans & Eagles look to be the repeated names chasing WRs this offseason.

DeSean Jackson (FAIR) - Sounds like he will be seeking $10-12m per season in a contract, that is Mike Wallace/Greg Jennings type money (From their FA years), not sure who will pay that, but we will see.

Kenny Britt (AY) - The Eagles are expected to be the first port of call for Kenny Britt, but Vikings have been mentioned in his plans as well.

Brandin Cooks (RMTC) - The Saints are looking for a mid-first round pick, and it sounds like the Titans are now the favourite, the Eagles are the other team repeatedly mentioned.

Kamar Aiken (LOHA) - Browns Bills & Seahawks are the teams mentioned as options for the free agent WR, he should be a good #2 option for them, should be viable for any of these teams behind their starters.

Jordan Matthews (DRUG) - The Eagles are open to trading Matthews away, I have heard that they want at least a 2nd Round pick, could see a swap deal sending him to New Orleans along with some picks for Brandin Cooks.

Jeremy Kerley (USOS) - He has signed a new 3yr deal with the 49ers

Kenny Stills (GAUL) - Sounds like relationships with the Dolphins have soured and he won't be re-signing, he will be heading elsewhere.

Pierre Garcon (USOS) - Is GONE from Washington, they wouldn't pay him, will head elsewhere (maybe)

Brandon Marshall (SWRL) - Marshall has talked to the Patriots and there seems to be interest on both sides

Alshon Jeffery (USOS) - Sounds like the 4pers are most likely to throw money at the free agents

Tight Ends

Jason Witten (LOHA) - The Cowboys will not be re-signing Witten. Could end up retiring, but someone might take a chance (See Vernon Davis to Redskins)

Jack Doyle (AY) - The Colts have not been able to get a deal done, so he will become a free agent.

NFL News Continues (News after 10am 07/03)

Torrey Smith (FAIR) - Released by 49ers.

Orleans Darkwa (GAUL) - Will not receive a tender from NYG, so will become a free agent.

Willie Snead (MET) - Has been given a tender by the Saints, could be interesting to see if someone offers him money to go elsewhere, especially with Saints cap issues (That they always have with a $30m+ QB)

Legal Tampering Begins

Now teams can "legally" talk to the agents of players who will be free agents on Friday, if they don't have an agent they can't talk to them (But this is completely different to the 'discussions' previously held with teams at the combine, those weren't tampering in anyway)

Tom Savage (Free) - If the Texans grab Romo, then Savage is likely traded to the 49ers

Trevor Siemian (NUCK) - If the Broncos grab Romo, then expect Siemian toi be traded (49ers?)

Corey Brown (LCAL) - The Panthers are not tendering offers to correy Brown or Brenton Bersin

Mike Glennon (Free) - Jets say he is not worth $14m/yr, Bears are his preferred destination, they also look to be only ones willing to pay $14m/yr, Bills & 49ers also pull out, leaves just the Bears, expect signature immediately on FA Day.

Jalin Marshall (Free) - Jalin Marshall has been suspended 4 games for PEDs (adderall)

Jacquizz Rodgers (LCAL) - The Buccs have resigned Jizz-Rod to a contract

Kenny Britt (AY) - The....FORTY NINERS are interested in Britt (Another WR, what a surprise), Cowboys also interested.

Cordarrelle Patterson (MET) - The Bears are interested in signing Patterson.

STevie Johnson (Free) - Johnson has been released by the Chargers

Danny Woodhead (MET) - The Broncos are interested in theChargers Free Agent RB

Jack Doyle (AY) - "TE-Needy" teams are interested, Giants (Huh?), Jets & Bears

Terrelle Pryor (NP) - Steelers out of the hunt after finding out that he wants Over $10m per season.

Russell Shepard (MET) - Reportedly 6 teams interested, but no one is naming them, though could get a top contract for a Special Teams Player.

DeSean Jackson (FAIR) - The Buccs are supposedly the biggest chaser of DJax, could be an interesting one. Can they afford him and pay Mike Evans (FA next season)

LeGarrette Blount (AY) - Patriots not looking to re-sign Blount (Let's see him back there in Week 11)

Jimmy Garoppolo (DRUG) - Patriots want TWO 1st Round picks for Jimmy G, unless they sign him to an extension this is stupid.

Jermaine Gresham (AY) - Has signed a new 4 year deal with the Cardinals.

Kirk Cousins (NUCK) - More likely than not he ends up in San Fran, whether this year through a trade, or next year when Wash can't afford him.

Tracking the changes with 1 day til FA Window Opens (As at 11:34 09/03)

Cody Kessler (Free) - Hue Jackson has said he didn't make the choice, that analytics did (How to sound like a douchenozzle given you signed onto the job after knowing they were going analytics route)

Brian Hoyer (Free) - Signs with the 49ers

Mike Glennon (Free) - Signs with Bears (Well agreed in principle)

Tony Romo (NP) - To be released by the Cowboys tomorrow, Broncos & Texans are teams 1 & 2

Tyrod Taylor (NUCK) - Has signed a restructured deal with Bills to stay put.

Adrian Peterson (RMTC) - Seahawks have said they have no interest, Raiders sources say he wants it more than they do...could be a long wait for AP, especially as teams are talking $2-3m.

Chris Thompson (LCAL) - Has been tendered by the Redskins

LeSean McCoy (LCAL) - The Bills have signed P.Di Marco & M.Tolbert, two big Fullbacks, can only help the running game there.

Carlos Hyde (MET) - The 49ers have signed Juczyk from the Ravens, another Fullback signing to help their big back.

DeSean Jackson (FAIR) - Lots of demand, Eagles, Patriots, Cowboys & Buccs amongst those I have seen named.

Marqise Goodwin (Free) - Signs with 49ers

Pierre Garcon (AY) - Signed a contract with the 49ers (Well agreed in principle)

Brandon Marshall (SWRL) - Signs a 2yr $12m contract with with NY Giants, Swarlos will be happy.

Adam Theilen (AY) - The Vikings gave him a 2nd Round Tender, nt sure any teams will risk that pick on him.

Kenny Stills (GAUL) - Movement is towards him staying with the Dolphins as their 2nd outside receiver, Parker on the other side, Landry in the middle, especually as Caroo hasn't lived up to hype.

Brandon LaFell (LOHA) - Has signed a new 2yr deal with the Bengals

Dwanye Allen (DRUG) - Has been traded to the Patriots

I'm pleased the Seahawks stayed away from purple jesus!

Still hoping he goes to New England to take on the Blount role of falling into the End Zone from 2 yards out.

So at 10am the league year actually kicks off, at that point I will start updating some actual information on here, and confirm signings etc. I'll also not major signings outside skill positions that might affect how someone in the skill spots does in the next year.
