PFF: Move over Aaron Rodgers, Patriots QB Tom Brady has the best deep ball in the NFL

The Patriots quarterback has continued his mastery of the sport. Pro Football Focus (PFF) looked at the quarterbacks that had the most success targeting any given route and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady featured as the best quarterback at a pair of routes that require impeccable touch and timing. Brady finished as the #1 quarterback in PFF’s ratings, so they’re a big fan of his 2016 season. Best QB on go routes (min. 10 targeted attempts): Tom Brady, New England Patriots “It is no coincidence that Chris Hogan was the most successful receiver on go routes when you look at how...

ESPN names four players that could interest the Patriots in free agency

ESPN names four players that could interest the Patriots in free agency

ESPN’s Mike Reiss has the inside scoop on the Patriots. ESPN’s Mike Reiss named four possible free agent targets for the New England Patriots and they’re worth noting because Reiss is the best in the business. Last year, Reiss connected the Patriots to Bills WR Chris Hogan, and the Patriots ultimately signed him away from their division rivals. Reiss also mentioned WR Rod Streater; the Patriots worked out Streater a few days later. Here are the four players that Reiss names and my thoughts on each player. RB Benny Cunningham The 26-year-old Rams running back took a visit to Foxboro as...

Reiss: Patriots signing WR Michael Floyd isn’t a “slam dunk”

Reiss: Patriots signing WR Michael Floyd isn’t a “slam dunk”

ESPN’s Mike Reiss shares his Patriots notes. The New England Patriots claimed former Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd on December 15th with three games left in the regular season. The Patriots adopted the astonishing $1.29 million left on Floyd’s contract for the remainder of the season. Despite an extra three games in the playoffs, Floyd was only active for three games in a Patriots uniform. According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, there’s a big chance that Floyd won’t return to the Patriots in 2017. “Receiver Michael Floyd has stated his hope to return to the Patriots in 2017,”...
Free Agent Profile: A.J Bouye, CB, Houston

Free Agent Profile: A.J Bouye, CB, Houston

It seems almost a certainty that the Jets will target a cornerback in free agency, will that cornerback be A.J Bouye? Free agency is just around the corner and it's safe to say that the Jets are preparing for it by opening up some cap room. With the recent cuts, the Jets now have some cap space to work with, and I'd be willing to bet that there will be more cuts to come. So now we have a little cap space, with more likely to come...what are we going to do with it? I think it's safe to say that we'll target a cornerback. With Revis almost certainly set to be cut, the Jets are lacking in the...

Buffalo Bills 2017 NFL Draft pick slots set

The Bills will look to add as much talent as possible, starting with six picks Now that compensatory picks have been doled out by the league, none of which were granted to our Buffalo Bills, the 2017 NFL Draft order is officially set. Thanks to a pair of trades, the Bills will be without a pick in the fourth round and the seventh round. The fourth rounder was sent to the Chicago Bears to move up in last year’s draft to select linebacker Reggie Ragland and the seventh round was sent to the Dallas Cowboys, along with Matt Cassel, for a fifth-round selection two years ago.

Will Patriots Franchise Tag Jimmy Garoppolo? There is Precedent

In Cleveland Browns quarterback watch, it’s not totally unreasonable to think that the New England Patriots won’t franchise Jimmy Garoppolo next season. Would Bill Belichik go crazy and throw the franchise tag on Jimmy Garoppolo after next season. There’s precedent to do it. Remember when Tom Brady tore his ACL in Game 1 of the […] Will Patriots Franchise Tag Jimmy Garoppolo?

How will the Patriots 2017 free agents affect compensatory picks in 2018?

How will the Patriots 2017 free agents affect compensatory picks in 2018?

The Patriots could receive a lot of early picks in 2018. The New England Patriots have 13 unrestricted free agents which will affect the compensatory pick math for the 2018 season. Teams generally receive compensatory draft picks in rounds three through seven if they lose more unrestricted free agents than they sign, up to a maximum of four compensatory picks. Teams that lose the most “value” in free agency receive the best compensatory picks- and now that compensatory picks are tradeable, they’re more valuable than ever. There are a few stipulations. Players that are released do not...

Worst salary cap values on the 2016 Buffalo Bills

Worst salary cap values on the 2016 Buffalo Bills

Here is our full list. Disagree with us now! The Buffalo Bills didn’t have a lot of overpaid players in 2016. Many of them played to their pay scale, which is the foundation of a good NFL team. Some even played above their pay grade (and we’ll get to them starting next week). Here is our list of the top 10 most overpaid Bills in 2016: 1. RB Reggie Bush ($1.5 million cap hit)Excerpt: He finished with -3 yards on 12 carries in 13 games. He did add a touchdown and 90 yards on seven receptions but also fumbled once. 2. K Dan Carpenter ($2.6 million cap hit)Excerpt: “Ranking 31st in...

Alan Branch wants to stay with Patriots, will negotiate new deal at NFL Combine

The Patriots defensive tackle could take less money to stay in New England. The New England Patriots can reach a contract extension with their current free agents at any given time, but most players will wait until free agency before making a decision. Patriots DT Alan Branch probably won’t sign before free agency, but the wheels for an extension will be in motion before the end of February. “I love the Patriots,” Branch told SiriusXM hosts Bob Papa and Ross Tucker, via NESN’s Doug Kyed. “They gave me a second chance at my career. They gave me two years, but at the same time...

It certainly is not the big news of the day, but the Jets will be moving on from linebacker Erin Henderson. Jets cut ties with Erin Henderson, who landed on non-football injury list last season | https://t.co/Y7JrHTr8kl https://t.co/k9rbsUmVTy— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) February 25, 2017 Henderson was signed in 2015 to a backup role after missing 2014 as personal demons took his career off the rails. His performance was solid, and his snap totals increased near the end of the year, leading the Jets to re-sign him on a new relatively low cost deal. He was brought back to start,...

The Jets have decided to part ways with center Nick Mangold after 11 years. The Jets owner and head coach spoke out about the release. Nick Mangold will always be a Jet, after 11 years of excellent service, the decision was made to cut Nick. I think we can all appreciate that this was the correct decision for the team with all things considered, but it's still a sad day for the Jets and their fanbase. With how important Mangold has been to the Jets, both the head coach Todd Bowles and owner Woody Johnson commented on his release. From the official Jets website: Woody Johnson: "For the past...

Per a report by Mike Florio, the Jets will release the veteran center. According to Mike Florio of PFT, the Jets will release Nick Mangold after 11 seasons.

It makes logical sense to release Nick, with a $9.1 million cap hit, and injuries and a dip in performance plaguing his 2016 season, as well as the fact that he'll be entering his age 33 season in 2017.

Salary cap speculation: Kyle Williams “vulnerable”

Salary cap speculation: Kyle Williams “vulnerable”

The veteran DT is set to make $8.3 million this season. Kyle Williams has been an irreplaceable member of the Buffalo Bills’ defense and locker room since he was drafted in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL draft. Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News isn’t letting that stop him from speculating on Williams’s future, however. In his latest mailbag, Carucci devotes a few lines to the possibility that Williams may be released for salary cap-purposes before this upcoming season. He notes that Williams is “extremely vulnerable” to becoming a cap-casualty, as his age (34 in June) and cap hit...
