-- Joseph Randle Domestic Violence Investigation Wraping Up Soon --
Tue Apr 28, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Wichita police spokesman James Espinoza said the police investigation into a domestic violence incident involving Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is wrapping up this week, at which point local prosecutors will decide whether to pursue charges. Randle was involved in an incident in February in Wichita, in which he was accused of brandishing a gun and threatening the mother of his child. If he’s charged, he’s more likely to be suspended, though the league has made a point with the Hardy suspension that they were not going to be bound by the criminal justice system. Under the new personal conduct policy, first-offenders of domestic abuse could face a six-game ban, though the DE Greg Hardy punishment shows Roger Goodell still considers himself having significant latitude.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports at least two teams, possibly more, have approached the New York Jets about trading for DE Muhammad Wilkerson, according to a league source. More calls from teams are expected as Thursday night's draft gets underway, according to the source. Just as the Chargers don't plan to trade QB Philip Rivers and the Vikings don't intend to trade RB Adrian Peterson, the Jets don't plan to trade Wilkerson. But all of those teams are expected to listen to offers. It is up to another team to sway those clubs' thinking, which could happen in any of the cases.

Mon Apr 27, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports the Dallas Cowboys are out on RB Adrian Peterson. That's the latest from Ian Rapoport, who said as much on Sunday night's NFL Total Access. The 30-year-old running back will play for the Vikings or no one, or at least that is the word coming from Minnesota. But he noted that if one team could tempt GM Rick Spielman, it would be the Cardinals. The Bucs and Jaguars may be on the periphery though are not viewed as serious contenders. A deal for Peterson would likely happen on Friday or not at all. Any return on the All-Pro would expected to yield a second-round pick and if the Cardinals do not find a running back they're in love with on Thursday night, Peterson could be the guy in Round 2.

-- Ryan Tannehill Contract Watch --
Sun Apr 26, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said that no call has been made about the $16 million option on QB Ryan Tannehill for 2016. “Look, Ryan is here, we’re excited he is here, we haven’t made any decisions yet,” Tannenbaum said. “We know when the deadline is and we’ll make those decisions when we get there. Obviously one of the other axioms you’d like to use this time of year is the tape sets the floor and the character sets the ceiling, and for all of the resources Mr. Ross gives us to put into a player, you want to make sure that player is taking all of those resources and Ryan is just a great example of that.”

-- Ray McDonald Watch --
Sun Apr 26, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The Chicago Sun-Times reports NFL officials said Friday the league completed its investigation of Bears DE Ray McDonald’s domestic- violence incident and ruled he didn’t violate its personal-conduct policy. But the NFL continues to look at his alleged sexual-assault incident. ‘‘We have completed that [domestic-violence] investigation,’’ NFL general counsel Jeff Pash said during the Associated Press Sports Editors meetings. "[Special counsel for investigations] Lisa [Friel] and her team completed that investigation [and] did not establish a violation of the personal-conduct policy. We informed the player and the [NFL] Players Association."

-- Martellus Bennett No-Shows --
Sun Apr 26, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett’s decision to skip the first two weeks of the program went unannounced. Although Bennett stopped by Halas Hall one day this week to greet teammates, he did not officially participate in the phase one portion of the program, according to multiple sources. Bennett is coming off a career year in 2014 where he topped all NFL tight ends in catches (90) and also set personal bests in receiving yards (1,038) and touchdowns (six). He was a late addition to the Pro Bowl roster after New England TE Rob Gronkowski pulled out following the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory, making Bennett the first Chicago tight end selected to the Pro Bowl since Mike Ditka in 1965. Bennett signed a four-year, $20.4 million deal with $9.215 million in guarantees on March 13, 2013. His compensation for 2015 is scheduled to include a $4.9 million base salary and $100,000 workout bonus. Since joining the Bears, Bennett has 155 catches for 1,675 yards and 11 touchdowns. However, Bennett’s average per year salary of his current deal ($5.1 million) places him far down the list amongst the NFL’s highest paid tight ends. Seattle TE Jimmy Graham tops the list at $10 million per season, followed by 11 other tight ends averaging a minimum of $6.4 million per year.

-- Sam Bradford Could Be Traded Again --
Sun Apr 26, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports no meaningful contract talks have occurred between the Philadelphia Eagles and QB Sam Bradford, who is due to make $12.985 million in 2015, the final year of his pre-wage-scale rookie deal. The Eagles would like to knock down the cap number, and Bradford would like a chance to re-establish himself. While money is a factor, security is, too; Bradford wants any new deal would to ensure that he won’t be shipped to the Browns or elsewhere, especially since a multi-year contract would make Bradford more valuable to a team that would acquire his rights for more than one season. The absence of a true commitment to Bradford keeps the possibility of another trade in play.

NBC Sports reports New York Giants QB Eli Manning says nothing is happening with his contract situation, and he doesn’t seem to be bothered by that. “Nothing has been brought up,” Manning said Sunday, via the Star Ledger. “I haven’t made a big deal about it.” Manning also said he won’t be insulted if he doesn’t get a new contract before the current one ends, pointing out that his brother, Peyton, has done that before.

-- Dennis Pitta: Too Soon to Tell If He'll Play --
Sat Apr 25, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports the goal of Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip surgery) is to play this season. He just doesn't know whether he'll be able to do so. Pitta participated in the Ravens' offseason workout program this week after having surgeries on his right hip the last two seasons. Ravens officials have said Pitta has fully recovered, and they indicated the decision to play is up to Pitta and his doctors. Asked whether he's made a decision, Pitta said at a charity event Saturday night, "It’s still too early. I’m just happy to be back here working with the guys. I’m feeling good in workouts. We’ll just take it one day at a time."

-- Justin Blackmon Watch --
Sat Apr 25, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The Florida Times-Union reports suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon remains a talking point, despite not having played for the team since the middle of the 2013 season. Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell was asked about Blackmon on Friday. Caldwell said he has not been given an update from the league office regarding Blackmon. After the season finale, Caldwell said he was hopeful to hear something from the league by the draft. "Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said. "Plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he emerges and he's going to go in with those top guys and compete with those other guys. Hopefully we're able to get some news, but if not, we weren't planning on it, we're just going to go." Caldwell said the team doesn't know if Blackmon has applied for reinstatement. The NFL Players Association said last week they had no update on Blackmon's status.

-- Panthers Pick Up 5th-Year Option on Luke Kuechly --
Sat Apr 25, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports the Carolina Panthers have picked up the 5th-year option on LB Luke Kuechly's contract for 2016.

-- Justin Tucker Contract Watch --
Sat Apr 25, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker signed his restricted free-agent tender on Thursday, according to the NFL transactions list. This means Tucker will remain with the Ravens for the 2015 season for $2.356 million. Tucker didn't receive any offer sheets from other teams, and Friday is the deadline to do so. The Ravens essentially guaranteed Tucker's return last month when they placed a second-round tender on him. Baltimore would've received a second-round pick as compensation if it chose not to match a team's offer sheet for him. So, what's the next step for Tucker and the Ravens? He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next March, but there's very little chance that the Ravens will let one of the best young kickers hit the open market. Here are the two likely outcomes: The Ravens sign Tucker to an extension or they use the franchise tag on him in February. The odds of the Ravens using the tag on Tucker increased after one projected target for the tag, CB Jimmy Smith, signed an extension this week. When Tucker signs a long-term deal, he is expected to be among the highest-paid kickers in the NFL, if not the highest paid. The top contracts for kickers (Oakland PK Sebastian Janikowski and Chicago PK Robbie Gould) include over $8 million in guaranteed money and average $3.7 million per season.

-- Victor Cruz Rehab Update --
Sat Apr 25, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

Bleacher Report reports it’s been a long, long road of rehab for New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee surgery), but in the end, he feels it will have all been worth it. “There is not a doubt in my mind that I will be back out there playing on the field,” he told reporters on Thursday. “Obviously, it is just a matter of getting myself back to 100 percent. I definitely, as of right now, there is zero doubts in my mind that I will be playing in that first game and continuing to be at 100 percent playing at the level that I like to be playing at.” Cruz said he has been running straight lines for almost a month but has not yet attempted cutting. “Next step is cutting,” he said.

The NFL commissioner said Friday that he thinks the projects in Inglewood and Carson are "viable," and have a "great deal of potential to be successful." "We had presentations earlier this week that are very exciting," Goodell said. "Not just for a return but to continue being successful going forward."

-- Chuck Pagano Contract Watch --
Sat Apr 25, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports you can hold off for now on officially calling HC Chuck Pagano a lame duck coach for the Indianapolis Colts. Owner Jim Irsay hasn’t shut the door on giving Pagano a contract extension before the start of the 2015 season. “I really feel positive about Chuck and what he’s done for us. There’s no question that he’s accomplished a lot since he’s been here,” Irsay said while speaking at the Chuckstrong Tailgate Gala, an event to help raise awareness and funds for cancer research. “And, obviously, we're here for this gala because he had that illness in 2012. Really, it’s only been kind of two years almost that he’s been coaching. He’s done a very good job. Nothing rules out that we couldn’t have an extension done before the season. If not, we can still, I’m sure, probably work things out.”

-- James Ihedigbo Watch --
Fri Apr 24, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

MLive.com reports Detroit Lions GM Martin Mayhew wants to meet with unhappy S James Ihedigbo, who is sitting out the offseason program because of a contract dispute. Ihedigbo, 31, is scheduled to make about $1.6 million in the final year of the deal he signed with Detroit last year. And he feels he is underpaid, after ranking among the 15 best players at his position last year. "I understand what he's going through — I've been through that myself as a player, when I felt like a time in my career I was underpaid," said Mayhew, a former Washington and Tampa Bay defensive back. "So I have empathy for him." Ihedigbo started 13 games and finished with four interceptions, three fumbles forced and two sacks last season, his first with the team. He also defended eight passes, made 71 tackles and ranked 14th at the position overall according to ProFootball Focus. Yet he will make roughly the same salary as S Isa Abdul-Quddus this season. His backup.

-- Greg Hardy Gets into Verbal Altercation with Teammate --
Fri Apr 24, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports on the final day of the first week of the Dallas Cowboys' offseason program, DE Greg Hardy and DL Davon Coleman had to be separated by teammates following an on-field argument, sources said. The incident occurred as the defensive linemen were running sprints and escalated to the point where teammates needed to step in. Coleman made a pointed reference to Hardy's domestic violence issues. However, Coleman's agent, Michael Loeffler, said the players didn't need to be separated. "There was no physical altercation of any nature whatsoever," Loeffler said. "No physical contact, touching, nothing. Basically my understanding is that Davon and Greg Hardy finished a workout, had a discussion and there was nothing to step in to and nobody did because there was nothing going on except a discussion ... I think it's getting a little blown out of proportion."

Foote said there are a few factors which will influence his decision. “Draft, what happens with suspended LB Daryl Washington, stuff like that, how my knee feels (after offseason surgery),” Foote said. “I’ll sit down with B.A. and the next couple of months are really going to be the deciding factor.” Foote has been involved in the regular coaching duties since early February, evaluating film and scouting.

-- Larry Fitzgerald Speaks on Production --
Thu Apr 23, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald recently said he can still play at a high level. So is it possible for him to generate significant numbers? “No, it’s not possible,” Fitzgerald told Burns & Gambo of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM in Phoenix. “And it’s only that reason, because of the role that I play. It’s a different role. I just don’t have the opportunities down the field. I’m more inside, I move the chains a lot more. So in terms of putting up the big numbers, it will be difficult. But in terms of my effectiveness, of providing first downs, being able to make tough catches for my team, I’m still going to be able to do that.” Fitzgerald nevertheless accepts his current role. “I won’t complain,” Fitzgerald said, explaining that he still makes a good living. “I’m happy to have a job and do something I really enjoy doing.” He said he’s actually “more of a complete player now,” because he now blocks and runs intermediate routes. “I can run all the routes at any position,” Fitzgerald said.

-- Michael Floyd Contract Watch --
Thu Apr 23, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the Arizona Cardinals don’t yet know whether they want WR Michael Floyd beyond 2015. Floyd, Arizona’s 2012 first-round pick, has an option year for 2016 that the Cardinals haven’t yet decided whether to pick up. FOX Sports 910 reports that the Cardinals won’t make up their minds until after the draft. The deadline to pick up the option is May 3rd. If the Cardinals pick up the option, Floyd would get a $7.3 million salary in 2016, and that salary would be guaranteed for injury. Floyd has played well in his three years in Arizona, but maybe not well enough to justify a $7.3 million salary. Last year, Floyd played in all 16 games and caught 47 passes for 841 yards and six touchdowns.

-- Andre Johnson Speaks --
Thu Apr 23, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson reiterated on Wednesday that he didn’t sign to play in Indianapolis simply because it would offer him a chance to face the Texans twice a year. Johnson said again that he has “bigger goals” than beating the only other team he’s played for in the NFL, but the lack of desire to make things about getting back at the Texans doesn’t mean that Johnson left Houston with only sunny memories. Johnson admitted the end of his run with the Texans wasn’t overflowing with good times. “Being in one place for a long time, the past two years have been pretty frustrating,” Johnson said, via ESPN.com. “Just being here is like a breath of fresh air for me.” Part of that breath of fresh air has to include playing with QB Andrew Luck after cycling through several quarterbacks while with the Texans. QB Matt Schaub was the most accomplished player of that group and Johnson showed them all some kindness by putting a unnecessary qualifier on his assessment of Luck’s skills. “He throws a great ball,” Johnson said. “Probably the best quarterback I’ve ever played with. I’m excited about the opportunity.”
