  49ers | Brock Purdy going under the knife    Wed Feb 8, 02:59 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy (elbow) will undergo surgery to repair his torn ulnar collateral ligament on Wednesday, Feb. 22, but is expected to be ready by training camp, per sources on Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Footballguys view: It's going to be interesting to see how things shake out with the 49ers' QB situation in training camp. They'll have former no.3 overall pick Trey Lance competing with Purdy for the starting job. Lance has the physical skill set to be incredibly dangerous in this league, but he didn't look good in his brief time starting in 2022. On the other hand, Purdy led the team deep into the postseason and looked quite comfortable doing what was asked of him in Kyle Shanahan's offense.

  Commanders | Sam Howell 'more than likely' QB1    Wed Feb 8, 02:01 PM

Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell will 'more than likely' be the team's starting quarterback in 2023, head coach Ron Rivera said on Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Footballguys view: The Commanders are moving forward with Howell as their starter in 2023. He flashed briefly during his rookie season, mainly in the season finale. Howell completed 11-of-19 passes for 169 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Commanders' 26-6, Week 18 win over the Cowboys, adding five carries for 35 additional yards and one touchdown. A fifth-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft, Howell is an interesting developmental prospect but we imagine the Commanders will bring someone in to compete with him for the starting job.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes not 100 percent    Wed Feb 8, 01:30 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) says he's not 100 percent but believes he'll be fine for the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Mahomes was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain after the Chiefs' Divisional Round win over the Jaguars. He played through the rest of the postseason with the injury, and there's no way Mahomes is going to miss the big game. Mahomes has shown incredible toughness getting through this injury, as high-ankle sprains tend to knock players out for at least a few weeks.

  Titans | Chad Brinker hired as assistant GM    Wed Feb 8, 01:06 PM

Green Bay Packers personnel/football administration executive Chad Brinker is being hired as the Tennessee Titans' assistant general manager, per source on Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Footballguys view: Brinker will work underneath and report to new Titans' GM Ran Carthon. He was with the Packers as a personnel/football administration executive since 2021. Brinker had been in Green Bay for 13 seasons, working as a scouting assistant, pro scout, and assistant director of pro scouting/salary cap analyst before his current role.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers revealed he will make a decision about his future after a four-day 'darkness retreat' following Super Bowl Sunday, he said on 'The Pat McAfee Show' on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: After his darkness retreat, then Rodgers will make a decision. Until then, we wait...again for the veteran quarterback to decide what he wants in his future. Rodgers also revealed that retirement is definitely on the table.

  Saints | Derek Carr visiting New Orleans    Tue Feb 7, 06:42 PM

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr will visit the New Orleans Saints, who were granted permission to discuss a potential trade, Wednesday, Feb. 8, according to a source. No trade is imminent, and Carr has a full no-trade clause.

Footballguys view: The Saints have more assets now that they traded away HC Sean Payton to the Broncos. Perhaps they'd use some of the draft capital they got for Payton in a deal for Carr. We doubt they send the Raiders a first-round pick (like the one they got from Denver), and we should see them wait it out like most teams since Carr is expected to be released.

  Titans | Tim Kelly lands Tennessee OC job    Tue Feb 7, 03:01 PM

Tennessee Titans passing game coordinator Tim Kelly was named as the team's new offensive coordinator Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: Kelly joined the Titans last year after spending several seasons with the Houston Texans. He'll be tasked with crafting an offense as the Titans get ready for changes coming to that side of the ball. They're built around RB Derrick Henry, but QB Ryan Tannehill may only be their starter for one more year before they begin looking for an upgrade.

  Panthers | Carolina unlikely to pursue high-dollar QB    Tue Feb 7, 02:58 PM

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr is among the high-priced veteran quarterbacks that are unlikely to be traded to the Carolina Panthers, according to ESPN.com's David Newton.

Footballguys view: The Panthers have a new head coach in Frank Reich, and he should get the team on the right track. However, the Panthers don't have a quarterback. If they're not going with a high-priced veteran quarterback, then the Panthers will pursue a younger passer in the draft. They have the no.9 overall pick in the 2023 draft, and by that time three QBs (Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Will Levis) could already be off the board.

  Giants | Daniel Jones to command around $35 million/season?    Tue Feb 7, 02:36 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to have discussions about a long-term contract with the team, and SNY's Connor Hughes reports a 'fair' average expected annual value for Daniel Jones is $35-37 million per season.

Footballguys view: Jones is in line for a new contract as he's set to be a free agent this offseason. The Giants have the franchise tag available, but some reports have indicated that would be a last-ditch effort. Instead, we could see a "fair" price of $35MM per year instead of the $40MM annually other reporters have speculated Jones is looking for.

  49ers | Steve Wilks lands DC job with San Francisco    Tue Feb 7, 01:38 PM

Former Carolina Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks is expected to be named as the new defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: It's a great landing spot for Wilks, and it's a great hire for the 49ers. Wilks did a great job as the interim head coach of the Panthers, and he may get another opportunity to be a head coach again in the next cycle. He takes over a tremendous 49ers defense, and Wilks will have them continue one of the league's best.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott to take big pay cut to stay?    Tue Feb 7, 01:24 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, who is scheduled to make $16.7 million in 2023, is expected to accept a 'large pay cut' to remain with the team, according to sources via Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: There's $11.8 million remaining in dead money on Elliott's contract, and he's on the books through 2026. It seems like Elliott will have to accept a pay cut if he wants to continue with the team. The Cowboys also have an interest in keeping free agent Tony Pollard in 2023.

  Cowboys | Franchise tag in Tony Pollard's future?    Tue Feb 7, 01:16 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard is expected to receive the franchise tag this offseason, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: This buzz has been out there for some time. In fact, it was before Pollard's injury in the Divisional Round that reports first surfaced about him getting the tag. That would give the two sides until mid-July to work out a long-term deal. Pollard needs a few months to recover from leg and ankle injuries suffered in the postseason.

  Broncos | Denver reaches out to Ronald Curry    Tue Feb 7, 01:03 PM

  Vikings | Brian Flores hired as new DC    Mon Feb 6, 05:49 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers senior defensive assistant Brian Flores has been hired by the Minnesota Vikings as their new defensive coordinator, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Vikings need to get better play from their defense, and Flores should be able to get the job done. In fact, the Vikings had better not get used to him being there long as Flores was getting head coaching interest (again) this offseason. The next coaching cycle could include Flores getting his second head-coaching gig.

  Colts | Indy picks up fifth-round pick    Mon Feb 6, 04:21 PM

The Indianapolis Colts acquired the Buffalo Bills' fifth-round pick to satisfy the 'conditional draft pick' requirement in the Nyheim Hines trade on Nov. 1, 2022.

Footballguys view: Hines has two more years left on his contract. He's on the books with a cap hit of $4.79 million in 2023, but there is zero remaining in dead money. That means the Bills could try and re-work the deal if they'd like. Hines provides electric ability in the open field when healthy. However, we'd like to see the Bills pick up a 'hammer' back this offseason for tough yards and playoff football.
