shaq barrett gets the tag
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are using their franchise tag on pass rusher Shaq Barrett, keeping him around for at least another year.
Don't have much "analysis" on this one -- no-brainer. Barrett lead the league in sacks last season with 19.5.
falcons release two veterans
The Atlanta Falcons are releasing Devonta Freeman and Desmond Truant ahead of free agency.
Falcons seem to be either cleaning house and/or saving money. I'm going for both. Their window has been sealed shut.
dak prescott gets a tag
We knew this was coming, but the Dallas Cowboys are putting the franchise tag on quarterback Dak Prescott.
Another no-brainer here. Anyone who thought he was going elsewhere is nuts. The Cowboys have until July 15 to get a long-term deal done here, and they should do it like, yesterday.
austin hooper becomes the league's highest-paid te
The Cleveland Browns are adding former Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper.
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has absolutely no excuses now, right?
deandre hopkins goes to the CARDINALS
In one of the most head-scratching trades I can remember, the Houston Texans are trading wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals.
Not sure what Bill O'Brien is doing here, but the Texans will receiver two picks and running back David Johnson, who had one good season when he started on your fantasy team that one time. For one of the best receivers in the league? We're gonna be wondering about this one for a while.
The NFL draft is still on - but we can't go to it
Is the first NFL Twitter Draft in our near future? With the 2020 NFL Draft on schedule to happen in April, coronavirus is threatening to change that. On Monday, the NFL announced that all public draft events pertaining to the draft are canceled. Read the full statement below:
Todd gurley might be next
The Los Angeles Rams could be looking to trade their star running back Todd Gurley this offseason.
They want some value, and don't have a lot of picks right now, but that's a big contract for another team to take over.
the lions aren't exactly doing good things
The Detroit Lions are making splashes (if you want to call them that) in free agency. They signed former Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (you have no idea how long it took me to type that) to a new deal.
This is a lot of money for a not-so-great of a player. This dude has played four games in the past two seasons. Brain fart on the Lions' part.
Aj klein to the bills
The Buffalo Bills agree to terms with the former New Orleans Saints linebacker AJ Klein.
what are the texans doing?
No, really. Someone tell me. The Houston Texans agreed to terms with wide receiver Randall Cobb on Monday night. The deal gives him $18.75 million guaranteed.
Call me crazy, but replacing DeAndre Hopkins with Cobb may not pan out so well.
diggs to the bills!
This is probably the trade that makes the most sense to me from Day One. The Buffalo Bills traded for wide receiver Stefon Diggs, giving quarterback Josh Allen a little something else to work with.
I really like this one for both sides: Diggs wanted to get out, Bills give him a chance to be "the guy." What could go wrong....
