-- LeVeon Bell Contract Watch --
Sun Mar 26, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Tribune-Review reports regarding signing franchise tagged RB LeVeon Bell to long-term deal, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says draft prep is "more urgent business," but that it will be addressed in the spring/summer time period.

-- Theo Riddick Rehab Update --
Sun Mar 26, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Detroit Free Press reports Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist surgery), who missed the final month of the regular season last year, had surgery on both of his wrists, which prompted his season-ending trip to injured reserve, two people familiar with the procedure said. They would not go on record because they are not authorized to talk about it publicly. The Lions did not announce Riddick's surgery at the time he went on injured reserve, and Riddick declined comment on his injury after the season, while he was wearing a cast on his left wrist. Riddick is expected to be a full participant in organized team activities later this spring, but his injury is another consideration for a Lions team looking at possibly upgrading its backfield this off-season.

-- No Timetable for LeVeon Bell's Rehab --
Sun Mar 26, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Post Gazette reports Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says there is no timetable for franchise tagged RB LeVeon Bell's (groin surgery) return from injury rehab. "Our goal is to have him 100 percent for the 2017 season," he said.

-- Adios Doug Whaley? --
Sun Mar 26, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Buffalo News reports little by little, Bills GM Doug Whaley has seen his power and stature diminished as team owners Pegulas conferred unprecedented control of the football operation to their new head coach, HC Sean McDermott. Whaley has become a mute, emasculated figure. He's not allowed to speak for the organization anymore, even on the rare occasions where they used to trust him. The latest indignity is his exclusion from next month's pre-draft media luncheon. The dignified move for Whaley now would be to resign. But why would he quit when he can wait for Kim and Terry Pegula to run him off, adding him to the lengthening scroll of coaches and executives that they've paid not to work? They should fire Whaley right now and be done with it. Stop the charade that he's still empowered. Put him out of his misery. If this goes on much longer, it'll make their decision to fire Darcy Regier seem hasty and impulsive by comparison.

-- Goodell Sends Ominous Letter to Oakland --
Sun Mar 26, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports there are certain words and phrases a city would prefer not to hear from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the days before a critical relocation vote involving its local franchise. Such language is now in the Oakland mayor’s possession. Goodell reportedly sent a letter Friday to Mayor Libby Schaaf, a transmission Schaaf received after having sent the NFL her own letter in which she characterized the latest effort to keep the Raiders in Oakland as a “viable and responsible proposal.” Clearly, Goodell did not agree. “Despite all of these efforts, ours and yours, we have not yet identified a viable solution,” Goodell said in the letter, which the East Bay Times reportedly obtained Saturday. “It is disappointing to me and our clubs to have come to that conclusion.” Oakland and its partners submitted Friday a revised $1.3 billion development proposal that Goodell wrote is not “clear and specific, actionable in a reasonable time frame, and free of major contingencies,” according to East Bay Times. A vote that could relocate the Raiders from Oakland to Las Vegas is expected as early as Monday at the NFL’s annual spring meeting in Phoenix. Twenty-four of the league’s 32 owners must vote in favor of the relocation for it to be approved.

-- Josh Gordon Still Not in Browns' Plans for 2017 --
Sat Mar 25, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Plain Dealer reports suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon is hoping for a decision on his reinstatement by late April or early May, according to a report, but he's still not in the Browns' plans for 2017. Even if he is reinstated, it's doubtful the Browns will give him another chance. A source said they'll likely try to trade him or possibly even release him. They have his rights for two more years after he's reinstated.

-- Bengals Release Rey Maualuga --
Sat Mar 25, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports the Cincinnati Bengals have release veteran LB Rey Maualuga, whom had 104 starts over eight seasons. With a salary cap hit of nearly $4 million, he was doomed to be released after LB Kevin Minter signed.

-- Marshawn Lynch Watch --
Sat Mar 25, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports it’s unclear whether retired RB Marshawn Lynch decided to press pause on the situation, or whether complications have arisen regarding the manner in which Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks will disengage. Since he remains on the team’s reserve/retired list, the Seahawks can say to Lynch “play for us or play for no one.” They also can seek trade compensation from the Raiders, or the Seahawks can just release him. While Seahawks management may be resisting the idea of Lynch waltzing to Oakland, Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, apparently speaking on behalf of the locker room, has no objection to it. “Well, [Marshawn’s] been talking about Oakland. He’s from the town, so that’s like going home for him,” Sherman said on ESPN. “It’d be like a basketball player growing up in L.A. and saying, ‘I’m going to play for the Lakers one day.’ It’s probably something he’s always wanted to do since he was a kid, so we’ve got no problem with that.”

-- Revis & Patriots Yet to discuss a Deal --
Sat Mar 25, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNNE.com reports the New England Patriots and free-agent CB Darrelle Revis have not discussed a deal that would bring the cornerback back to New England.

-- A.P. Speaks --
Sat Mar 25, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports free-agent RB Adrian Peterson refutes the fact he wants $8 million to sign in a post on his Twitter feed. He says the right fit and winning a championship is the utmost importance to him, and he is in no rush to sign with a team right now.

-- Zach Brown Has Narrowed Choices, But... --
Sat Mar 25, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports free-agent LB Zach Brown has visited multiple teams and his decision is said to be between the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins, although neither team has shown a desire to meet Brown’s original asking price, believed to be in the $6 million per year range.

-- NFLPA Investigating Jaguars for a Possible CBA Viotation --
Fri Mar 24, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

The Florida Times-Union reports the NFLPA is investigating the Jaguars for a violation of the collective bargaining agreement in relation to a letter executive vice president Tom Coughlin sent to several players under contract. The letter said they were required to return to Jacksonville for a physical examination during the middle part of this month. The Jaguars’ players aren’t allowed to report to the team’s facility until April 10 and multiple league sources said the team’s request isn’t allowed. A source said the union was notified of Coughlin’s letter by an agent of a player who doesn’t live in Jacksonville and balked at paying his own travel expenses back to town. A second league source said several players were advised by their agents to go through the physical even as the NFLPA began its inquiry. The sources requested anonymity because they weren’t allowed to speak publicly about the issue. A potential punishment for the Jaguars could be forfeiting an organized team activity (OTA) workout this spring. Teams are occasionally stripped of OTAs because of “excessive contact,” during a session the previous year – Seattle and Atlanta will have fewer than the allowed 10 this spring and the Seahawks were also docked their fifth-round draft pick. This is the second item the NFLPA is looking into regarding the Jaguars since Coughlin’s hiring in January. Former DE Jared Odrick filed a $5.5 million grievance against the team earlier this month saying he is owed money that was guaranteed for injury.

Fri Mar 24, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports RB Adrian Peterson is still on the market in part because of a hefty initial asking price, league sources said. One source from a team in the market for a running back believes Peterson wanted more than $8 million in the first year of a contract. Despite his reputation as one of the best playmakers of the modern era, that is a steep request for the current veteran tailback climate.

-- LeGarrette Blount Watch --
Fri Mar 24, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount is coming off one of the best seasons of his NFL career with 18 rushing touchdowns, but hasn't been definitively linked to any club as an unrestricted free agent. The understanding is that the Patriots and Blount discussed his potential return, but couldn't come to an agreement, and no other team has stepped up at this time to officially take Blount off the market. The Patriots signed RB Rex Burkhead (Bengals) and also have RB Dion Lewis, RB James White and RB D.J. Foster on the roster, but none of those players qualifies as a pure power back like Blount. If the Patriots don't draft a power back, and Blount still is available, perhaps the sides revisit things at that time.

-- Patriots Unlikely to Re-Sign Michael Floyd --
Fri Mar 24, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports free-agent WR Michael Floyd might be the receiver most affected by the New England Patriots' acquisition of WR Brandin Cooks in a trade. With WR Julian Edelman, Cooks, WR Chris Hogan and WR Malcolm Mitchell atop the depth chart, and the club holding on to WR Danny Amendola in a reflection that they hope to work something out to keep him at a reduced salary, there doesn't appear to be a spot for Floyd at this time. Floyd provided the Patriots with insurance and depth late last season and into the playoffs, but a return in 2017 now looks like a long shot.

-- NFL Centralizing Replays --
Thu Mar 23, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports for the first time ever, the NFL is moving to a rule that will give the league’s head of officiating, not the referee, final say on replay reviews. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on LMike & Mike that under the 2017 rules, the replay review will go to head of officiating Dean Blandino, and although Blandino will consult with the referee on the field, it will be Blandino who makes the final decision. Although the NFL has already implemented the procedures that allow the referee to communicate with the league’s officiating office, in past years it was still the ref who had final say. “We are going to centralize the replay back here in New York,” Goodell said. “Dean Blandino will have the final decision. We think that will move it much quicker.”
