Jags and Dolphins nearing completion of a Julius Thomas for Branden Albert trade

The Miami Dolphins are working to finalize a trade sending offensive lineman Branden Albert to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for tight end Julius Thomas. What It Means: The deal cannot be finalized until the start of the league's new year on March 9. The two principals in the deal are coming off disappointing seasons and would likely be released if not traded away. Thomas would likely become the Dolphins top tight end replacing another failed experiment in Jordan Cameron. Thomas has been a bust in Jacksonville recording only 76 catches for 736 yards with nine touchdowns...

Chelsea's Antonio Conte sets his sights on the double but remains evasive on John Terry's future

Antonio Conte says he would “sign now” for Chelsea’s season to end with a double and John Terry to lift the FA Cup as captain, but refused to be drawn on the 36-year-old’s future, despite praising his influence off the pitch. Terry made a rare start this season in the 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round win over Wolves, bring his number of appearances for the campaign up to 10, with just five in the league. Asked whether he’d like to see Terry finish the season by lifting the FA Cup, Conte said: “I’d sign now for this.

Rams interested in Kirk Cousins if Washington doesn't sign him long-term

The Los Angeles Rams could be in the market for Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins if things don't work out with second-year Jared Goff in 2017, MMQB's Albert Breer believes. What It Means: That's assuming Cousins receives the franchise tag for the second year in a row. The Redskins were once content to let the market determine Cousins' value but the landscape has changed a bit. Shanahan is already gunning for Cousins to join the San Francisco 49ers while Los Angeles could be a possibility next year if Goff falls flat in 2017. With Cousins attracting interest elsewhere, Washington...

Cowboys will consult Tony Romo before any move

The Dallas Cowboys will "do right" by quarterback Tony Romo, MMQB's Albert Breer expects. What It Means: That means either trading Romo to a team of his choosing or releasing him and letting him test the open market. This belief is shared by a number of Cowboys staffers. Romo is expected to meet with owner Jerry Jones about his future before or during the upcoming Combine. The Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, and Kansas City Chiefs are among Romo's preferred landing spots. The question remains how good Romo will be in what will be his age-37 campaign. In 2015,...

49ers could be landing spot for Falcons' Jacob Tamme

The San Francisco 49ers are a "strong possibility" to sign Atlanta Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme, according to ESPN reporter Vaughn McClure. What It Means: The 31-year-old said he loves being a Falcon but could opt to join his former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. The 49ers did just sign Vance McDonald to a five-year extension, though rookie Austin Hooper would be slated for a bigger role if Tamme winds up leaving Atlanta this offseason. Among the 41 tight ends to see 30 targets or more in 2016, Tamme's 0.67 Reception Net Expected Points per target was...

Giovani Bernard (ACL) will avoid Bengals' PUP list for 2017

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ACL) will avoid the PUP list to start next season, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com believes. What It Means: Bernard tore his ACL late last year but seems to be on schedule with his recovery. At worst, Hobson thinks Bernard could miss one or two games to start the season. The Bengals still have Jeremy Hill, but they'll need more depth with Bernard on the mend and both backups Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman both headed for free agency. 69 running backs topped 50 carries this season, and Bernard's -0.07 Rushing Net Expected Points...

Patriots still interested even if Martellus Bennett tests free agency

The New England Patriots will "make a run" at tight end Martellus Bennett even if he goes to free agency, Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal believes. What It Means: Daniels believes Bennett will command "top dollar" as the best tight end available on the open market. Outbidding teams in free agency has never been New England's M.O., though the Patriots have plenty of cap space (over $61 million) if they choose to go that route. Bennett finished third among tight ends with seven touchdowns last season despite playing through painful knee and ankle injuries. With Rob Gronkowski...

Connor Barwin has options if Eagles cut him

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Connor Barwin will have plenty of suitors if the Eagles cut or trade him this offseason, Mark Eckel of NJ Advanced Media believes. What It Means: Following years of success as a 3-4 outside linebacker, Barwin struggled as a defensive end in Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme last season. Barwin is due $7.75 million in 2017 and has already said he'd be willing to take a pay cut to stay in Philly. The Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens are 3-4 teams that could be interested in Barwin. Despite Barwin's personal struggles, the Eagles...

Browns don't plan to franchise tag Terrelle Pryor

The Cleveland Browns don’t plan to franchise tag wide receiver Terrelle Pryor. What It Means: This conflicts with a previous report the Browns were leaning toward the tag with Pryor. It sounds there's more optimism for an extension after the Browns met with Pryor’s agent this week. The Browns have until March 1 to make a decision on Pryor. Pryor is targeting $10-11 million annually. Pryor's 0.68 Reception Net Expected Points (NEP) per target ranked 23rd among the 41 wide receivers to see at least 100 targets this year. That's a surprisingly good mark for a receiver who...

Chargers' Melvin Ingram is a fit with Colts

The Indianapolis Colts could be a landing spot for San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Melvin Ingram. What It Means: The Colts run a similar scheme to the Chargers and need a pass-rusher with Robert Mathis retiring and Erik Walden and Trent Cole free agents. Ingram doesn’t have any direct ties to Indy, but played under defensive coordinator John Pagano his entire career. Indianapolis finished the year ranked fourth-worst in Adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points allowed per play. Source: Rotoworld.com

Dolphins sign Cameron Wake to two-year extension

The Miami Dolphins signed defensive end Cameron Wake to a two-year, $19 million extension. What It Means: The Dolphins are rewarding Wake after he posted 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, and 66 total quarterback pressures in another All-Pro season. He didn't show any signs of slowing down coming off a torn Achilles, leading all 4-3 ends in pass-rushing productivity at PFF despite opening the year in a situational role. Miami didn't need to re-sign Wake but would have risked losing him in a walk year. The extension locks Wake up through 2018, his age-37 season. The Dolphins...
