Former Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys to become their new defensive coordinator.
|Footballguys view: With Dan Quinn moving on, the Cowboys needed to fill their defensive coordinator position. Zimmer has a ton of experience, and he's a respected name in coaching circles. He goes back to the Cowboys where he coached from 1994-2006. Zimmer takes over a defensive unit that has plenty of star power, so he should make them a top-10 defense.
Falcons | Desmond Ridder a trade candidate? Mon Feb 12, 02:19 PM
Atlanta Falcons QB Desmond Ridder could be a trade candidate whenever the team acquires a new quarterback, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network on Monday, Feb. 12. 'Once they acquire a new QB, potentially trading Ridder would be an option, as well. It might be a situation where a fresh start works for all parties,' Rapoport said.
|Footballguys view: We can't imagine too many teams lined up to trade for Ridder - even in this quarterback-desperate league. We could be wrong, but Ridder's play doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Perhaps someone is willing to throw a late-round pick at the Falcons with the idea that Ridder could compete for a starting job.
Chiefs | Andy Reid returning Mon Feb 12, 09:06 AM
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed he'll return for the 2024 season.
|Footballguys view: There was a thought that Reid could retire if the Chiefs won the Super Bowl. Well, less than one day after securing another ring we've got the news that Reid isn't going anywhere. In fact, the Chiefs should try to keep the band together on both sides of the ball to see if they can be the first team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in a row.
Chiefs | Jerick McKinnon logs two grabs Mon Feb 12, 01:11 AM
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon caught both of his targeted passes for 15 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: It was a question if McKinnon was going to be able to play. Freshly activated off IR, McKinnon was on the field sparingly but one of his plays came up big. McKinnon helped move the chains, and that's a role he could continue to play for the Chiefs if they bring him back in 2024. He's set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Jerick McKinnon player page
49ers | Minimal role for Elijah Mitchell Mon Feb 12, 12:35 AM
San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell carried the ball twice for eight yards against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Feb. 11.
|Footballguys view: We could have seen more from Mitchell. Kyle Shanahan seemed to go away from running the ball (again) in the Super Bowl. Yes, Christian McCaffrey had 22 carries but Shanahan wanted 40 carries on Sunday. The team ended up with 31 rushes as a team, falling short of that 40 mark. Giving Mitchell more work could have further worn down the Chiefs' defense.
Elijah Mitchell player page
49ers | Brock Purdy comes up short Mon Feb 12, 12:24 AM
San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy completed 23 of his 38 passes for 255 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 12 yards in a 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Purdy wasn't as effective as a runner as he'd been earlier in the postseason. The Chiefs were harassing Purdy all game long, and he did a good job of standing up to the pressure. He didn't make too many mistakes, and he didn't turn the ball over. Perhaps running the ball a bit more would've changed the outcome, but Purdy's game was not enough (even though he was efficient).
49ers | Big effort from Christian McCaffrey Mon Feb 12, 12:23 AM
San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 22 times for 80 yards and caught eight passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. He also lost a fumble.
|Footballguys view: McCaffrey was taking a ton of punishment, but he stayed in the game and helped wear down the Chiefs. We're not sure what more he could have done, but just a bit more McCaffrey might have made a difference for a 49ers team that came up short against the Chiefs.
Christian McCaffrey player page
49ers | Deebo Samuel held in check Mon Feb 12, 12:22 AM
San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel caught three of his 11 targets for 33 yards and rushed three times for eight yards in a 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Samuel also had a hamstring problem that knocked him out of the game. The Chiefs seemed to be ready when Samuel was toting the rock as a runner. The passes to Samuel were off the mark, and that's why he couldn't do more as a receiver.
Deebo Samuel player page
49ers | Three grabs for Brandon Aiyuk Mon Feb 12, 12:21 AM
San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk caught three of his six targets for 49 yards in a 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: It was not a great day for the 49ers' passing attack. QB Brock Purdy had 39 passing attempts, but he should have peppered Aiyuk with more passes. It should have been a larger part of their game plan to get the ball into the hands of one of their best playmakers. Not force-feeding Aiyuk the ball was one of the things 49ers fans will look back on as a mistake in this game.
Brandon Aiyuk player page
49ers | Rare feat for Jauan Jennings Mon Feb 12, 12:20 AM
San Francisco 49ers WR Jauan Jennings caught four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown and threw a 21-yard touchdown pass in a 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, becoming the second player in Super Bowl history to have both a receiving and passing touchdown in the same game.
|Footballguys view: The only other player is former Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles. Unlike Foles, Jennings did not win the game. It was a heroic effort by Jennings, and he was playing out of his mind to help the 49ers on Super Sunday.
Jauan Jennings player page
Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes adds to legacy Mon Feb 12, 12:19 AM
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl LVIII, completing 34 of his 46 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and rushing nine times for 66 yards in a 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers.
|Footballguys view: Mahomes is approaching GOAT status, and he's just getting started. Since becoming the starter, Mahomes has three Super Bowl championships in six seasons. He could play at a high level for the next decade plus if he can stay healthy. That's great news for the Chiefs and terrible news for the rest of the league.
Patrick Mahomes II player page
Chiefs | Nine grabs for Travis Kelce Mon Feb 12, 12:18 AM
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught nine of his 10 targets for a game-high 93 yards in a 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Kelce came up big for the Chiefs. The team was struggling at times, but Kelce proved to be the steady target and playmaker that he's always been. His chemistry with QB Patrick Mahomes is special, and Kelce's play is a big reason why the Chiefs are back-to-back Super Bowl champions.
Travis Kelce player page
Chiefs | Rashee Rice finishes with six catches Mon Feb 12, 12:17 AM
Kansas City Chiefs WR Rashee Rice caught six of his eight targets for 39 yards in a 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Rice helped move the chains, and he played with emotion in the Super Bowl. At one point, Rice was seen shouting at QB Patrick Mahomes after he was wide open for a would-be touchdown. Instead of hitting Rice for the score, Mahomes threw it up for TE Travis Kelce on a play that wound up incomplete. It's an emotional game, but we're certain everything is smoothed over with a Super Bowl win.
Chiefs | Isiah Pacheco handles 24 touches Mon Feb 12, 12:16 AM
Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco rushed 18 times for 59 yards and caught six passes for 33 yards in a 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII. He also lost a fumble.
|Footballguys view: Pacheco helped grind down the 49ers' defense. He's the angriest runner in the league, and Pacheco was angry with himself after an early fumble lost in the Super Bowl. He kept his confidence and kept running angrily, both as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Pacheco is the first running back in NFL history to begin his pro career with two Super Bowl starts and two Super Bowl victories.
Chiefs | Mecole Hardman catches winner Mon Feb 12, 12:15 AM
Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught three passes for 57 yards, including a three-yard, game-winning touchdown, in a 25-22 overtime win against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Hardman began 2023 with the New York Jets, but he found his way back to the Chiefs. He caught only one pass in five games with the Jets before he was traded back to the Chiefs. Hardman mostly has a small role for the Chiefs, but he came up in a big way to seal the game in overtime.
Mecole Hardman Jr. player page
49ers | Rough night for George Kittle Mon Feb 12, 12:14 AM
Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the team's Super Bowl LVIII loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Feb. 11.
|Footballguys view: Kittle was able to return to the game but finished with just two receptions for four yards. He was targeted three times. You have to look beyond the box score to see how Kittle impacts the game as a blocker in addition to what he does as a receiver. He was banged up going into this game, so he was going to give it his all just to be out there on Sunday.
George Kittle player page
Chiefs | Marquez Valdes-Scantling finds end zone Mon Feb 12, 12:13 AM
Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 20 yards and a touchdown in a 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Valdes-Scantling was not always on the same page as QB Patrick Mahomes. However, he made plays when they counted and helped spark the Chiefs' scoring in a game where points weren't as plentiful as some hoped. Valdes-Scantling has one more year left on his contract with the Chiefs. He's due $13.9 million in 2024 with $2 million in dead money.

Raiders | Davante Adams not available Sun Feb 11, 04:25 PM
Las Vegas Raiders WR Davante Adams will not be made available in a trade this offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
|Footballguys view: The Raiders are setting things up the best they can for the veteran receiver. Adams said he is happy that the Raiders hired OC Luke Getsy because he worked with Getsy when both were with the Green Bay Packers. Now, we'll see if they try to upgrade the quarterback position at some point this offseason.
Davante Adams player page
Cowboys | CeeDee Lamb looking for lucrative deal Sun Feb 11, 04:11 PM
Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb said he hopes to become the highest-paid receiver or one the highest-paid receivers in the NFL with his next contract.
|Footballguys view: Lamb is deserving of that price tag. He's arguably the best receiver in the league, and soon he will be compensated as such. Lamb is set to play on his fifth-year option with a cap hit of $17.9 million. Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill is the highest-paid receiver in terms of annual average salary at $30 million.
CeeDee Lamb player page
Giants | Daniel Jones on track for opener Sun Feb 11, 02:50 PM
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2024 regular season, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
|Footballguys view: Good news for Jones, but the Giants may add a quarterback to compete with him for the starting job. Reports have surfaced indicating the Giants may add a veteran in free agency to push Jones. There are also rumblings they could instead try to get another quarterback for the roster in the 2024 NFL draft.
Daniel Jones player page
Cowboys | Dak Prescott may receive extension soon Sun Feb 11, 01:45 PM
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott could reach an agreement on a contract extension with the Cowboys before the start of free-agency, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
|Footballguys view: Prescott is expected to be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL when the extension is done. The Cowboys are also in line to give WR CeeDee Lamb a new contract, so they're going to spend plenty of money on their offense in the near future. Right now at $40 million annually, Prescott ranks no10 in the league. We imagine his new contract could pay him $50-plus million annually.
Dak Prescott player page
Vikings | Minnesota hopes to keep Kirk Cousins Sun Feb 11, 01:43 PM
Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is a player the Vikings hope to re-sign this offseason, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
|Footballguys view: The Vikings want to keep Cousins, but the price has to be right. Cousins should have plenty of interest on the open market, and the Vikings have to think about a future after (or without) Cousins.
Kirk Cousins player page
Steelers | Ryan Tannehill may be option Sun Feb 11, 01:15 PM
Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Ryan Tannehill may receive interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers if he tests the free-agent market, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
|Footballguys view: Tannehill could beat out Kenny Pickett if the Steelers add him. Pickett, a first-round pick just a couple of years ago, has not been that impressive in two pro seasons. Tannehill is not the player he used to be, but his valuable starting experience should earn him a chance to start somewhere else in 2024.
Ryan Tannehill player page
Broncos | Denver, Russell Wilson may talk contract Sun Feb 11, 01:14 PM
Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson may talk with the team about the possibility of re-negotiating his contract this offseason, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
|Footballguys view: There's still a chance Wilson stays in Denver. He'll need to re-work his contract, mainly because his 2025 salary becomes fully guaranteed five days into the new league year. If released, the Broncos would have around $84 million to eat in dead money they could spread over two years.
Russell Wilson player page
Patriots | Mac Jones not expected to return Sun Feb 11, 11:20 AM
New England Patriots QB Mac Jones is a candidate to be traded in the coming weeks and is likely to be playing elsewhere next season, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
|Footballguys view: Jones has not been a good starting option, but his first-round pedigree should get him another chance to start. He's not going to get handed a job, but if/when the Patriots move on we could see Jones in the mix. The Patriots have the no3 pick in the 2024 NFL draft, and they could be in line for someone like Drake Maye (North Carolina) or Jayden Daniels (LSU).
Mac Jones player page
Buccaneers | Inside track to re-sign QB Mayfield Sat Feb 10, 03:47 PM
Ian Rapoport, from NFL Network, reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the inside track to re-sign QB Baker Mayfield.
|Footballguys view: The move would make sense for both sides. The Buccaneers need Mayfield, and he enjoyed a career resurgence with them in 2023. Mayfield threw for 4,044 yards and 28 touchdowns en route to a playoff berth and a Wild Card Round win over the Eagles. There's buzz that Mayfield wants to stay, and he wants to them to keep impending free agent WR Mike Evans. The franchise tag is an option for either of these players if the Bucs want to keep the band together.
Baker Mayfield player page
Jets | Rodgers feeling good Sat Feb 10, 03:44 PM
Rich Cimini, from ESPN.com, reports New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers is feeling good post-Achilles' surgery. On Mr. Joe Rogan's podcast, Rodgers said "It feels good. I can do everything except sprint at a top speed."
|Footballguys view: That's the way Rodgers has been feeling for some time. It's a make-or-break season for HC Robert Saleh and the Jets in 2024. We'll see if Rodgers can stay healthy and play like he used to. In his final games with the Packers (2022), Rodgers didn't look quite like himself.
Aaron Rodgers player page
Jets | Owner sends a message Sat Feb 10, 03:41 PM
Tom Rock, from Newsday, reports New York Jets owner Woody Johnson 'sent a message' to his coaching staff about his expectations for the 2024 season. "They all got the message. This is the time to go. We have to produce this year. We have to produce this year.... It's not a playoff mandate, but we have to do a lot better than 7 (wins)." Johnson is quoted in the report.
|Footballguys view: It's not playoffs-or-bust for HC Robert Saleh, but it kind of is. They'll have a healthy Aaron Rodgers, and they need to make a run with at least double-digit wins.
Aaron Rodgers player page
FBS | Bill O'Brien hired by Boston College Sat Feb 10, 12:22 PM
Former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien was hired as the head coach of Boston College on Friday, Feb. 9.
|Footballguys view: O'Brien was going to be the OC for Ohio State before changing his mind and deciding to coach the Eagles when their job opened up. A Massachusetts native, O'Brien stays home and goes back to the world of college football where he's had success as both a head coach and an assistant.
49ers | Christian McCaffrey delivering for Niners Sat Feb 10, 12:12 PM
San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey is averaging 112 yards from scrimmage in five career playoff games with the 49ers, and he has scored six touchdowns, including four in two games this postseason.
|Footballguys view: We think this game comes down the play of the backs on each team. The Chiefs have hard-charging Isiah Pacheco, and the 49ers have a do-everything back in McCaffrey. We're certain a big part of the Chiefs' defensive gameplan will revolve around slowing down McCaffrey and forcing QB Brock Purdy to beat them.
Christian McCaffrey player page
Seahawks | Seahawks hiring Ryan Grubb Sat Feb 10, 12:08 PM
University of Alabama offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb is being hired by the Seattle Seahawks for the same role, per sources on Friday, Feb. 9.
|Footballguys view: Grubb was the OC for the Washington Huskies in 2023 before deciding to follow Kalen DeBoer to the Crimson Tide earlier this year. Well, the appeal of the NFL was something Grubb coveted so he leaps to join Mike Macdonald's staff. He's known for putting together an efficient passing game with underneath routes, and it will be interesting to see how Grubb handles an offense led by QB Geno Smith.
49ers | George Kittle on track to play Sat Feb 10, 09:39 AM
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 9, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: This game features two of the best tight ends in the modern era; Kittle and Travis Kelce. They'll both be security-blanket targets with big-play ability. Kittle is not 100 percent, but he'll give it his all in the big game.
George Kittle player page
Raiders | Aidan O'Connell has chance to start Sat Feb 10, 09:37 AM
Las Vegas Raiders QB Aidan O'Connell will have the chance to compete for the starting quarterback job next season, but the team likely will be adding another quarterback this offseason to compete with O'Connell, according to head coach Antonio Pierce.
|Footballguys view: The Raiders could be making a move up for a quarterback in the 2024 NFL draft. However, with many teams trying to get one of the top-3 passers in this draft class, we might see O'Connell as the starter. O'Connell did flash as a rookie, and he got plenty of starting experience to build on in 2024.
Raiders | Davante Adams happy with new OC Sat Feb 10, 09:36 AM
Las Vegas Raiders WR Davante Adams said he is happy that the team hired offensive coordinator Luke Getsy because he worked with Getsy when both were with the Green Bay Packers.
|Footballguys view: Keeping Adams happy is a smart move. Getsy will be in charge of getting the most from Adams, but we'll see who is playing quarterback for the Raiders in 2024. Aidan O'Connell might continue as the team's starter, or they could go for an upgrade by moving up in the first round of the 2024 NFL draft.
Davante Adams player page
Chiefs | Rashee Rice expected to play Sat Feb 10, 08:01 AM
Kansas City Chiefs WR Rashee Rice (ankles) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 9, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: The rookie receiver has become a trusted target for QB Patrick Mahomes. This injury may slow him down a bit, but he could still come through with a big play or two in an effort to keep the chains moving.
Chiefs | Isiah Pacheco on track to play Sat Feb 10, 07:57 AM
Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (ankle, toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 9, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: Pacheco is the angriest runner in the league, and he plays with little regard of his personal safety. He's been banged up quite a bit in his short pro career, but Pacheco will keep fighting for tough yards as long as he can. We think his play will be key against a 49ers' defense that has struggled to stop the run in the postseason.
Bears | Cole Kmet recovering from injury Sat Feb 10, 07:27 AM
Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet (forearm) said he suffered a fractured forearm during the regular season finale but does not need surgery.
|Footballguys view: Good news for the Bears here. He said he will be fine for the start of offseason workouts. Now, we just have to see who the Bears have a quarterback for 2024. They have QB Justin Fields, but with the no1 overall pick they could get a generational talent in USC QB Caleb Williams. Stay tuned.
Cole Kmet player page
Browns | Joe Flacco not ready to retire Fri Feb 9, 04:13 PM
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco said he wants to play in the NFL next season.
|Footballguys view: Flacco proved last year that he could still start and be effective in the NFL. The Browns didn't go as far in the postseason as they'd like, largely because of Flacco's tendency to play "YOLO" ball, but the veteran quarterback might just be brought back as veteran insurance behind Deshaun Watson.
Joe Flacco player page
Texans | Dalton Schultz would like to return Fri Feb 9, 04:08 PM
Houston Texans impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz said he would like to re-sign with the Texans this offseason and believes the two sides will be able to reach an agreement.
|Footballguys view: We'd like to see that. When healthy, Schultz was a weapon for the Texans. He didn't post career-best numbers, but in his first season with the Texans, he had 59 catches for 635 yards and five touchdowns. We'll see if Schultz gets to stay with the team and continue to build chemistry with QB CJ Stroud.
Dalton Schultz player page
Patriots | Dont'a Hightower lands coaching gig with New England Fri Feb 9, 03:32 PM
Former New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower was named as the team's new linebackers coach on Friday, Feb. 9.
|Footballguys view: New Patriots HC Jerod Mayo is filling out his staff, and Hightower now begins his coaching career in the NFL. Hightower played linebacker for the Patriots from 2012-21. He earned All-Pro in 2016, twice was a Pro Bowl, and won three Super Bowl rings with New England.
Dont'a Hightower player page
Chargers | NaVorro Bowman close to join coaching staff? Fri Feb 9, 02:50 PM
Former NFL linebacker NaVorro Bowman is reportedly the frontrunner to become the new linebackers coach for the Los Angeles Chargers, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: That move would make sense for the Chargers. Bowman played for new head coach Jim Harbaugh for four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 to 2014. Harbaugh is going to fill the staff with "his" guys, and Bowman certainly fits that category.
NaVorro Bowman player page
Saints | New Orleans hiring Andrew Janocko to coach QBs Fri Feb 9, 02:30 PM
Former Chicago Bears quarterbacks coach Andrew Janocko is expected to be named to the same post with the New Orleans Saints, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: Janocko now goes to the Saints to help out veteran QB Derek Carr. The Saints were looking for a new QB coach since Ronald Curry moved on to the Buffalo Bills. Janocko has worked with new offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak during their time with the Vikings.
Seahawks | Aden Durde tabbed to run defense in Seattle Fri Feb 9, 02:22 PM
Dallas Cowboys defensive line coach Aden Durde is expected to be named as the new defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, Feb. 9.
|Footballguys view: Durde has been a right-hand man of Dan Quinn for the last several years with both the Falcons and the Cowboys. Even though Quinn is with the Commanders, the Seahawks get his influence back in the building with Durde running the defense. At this time, reports indicate new Seahawks head coach Mike Macdonald will be the defensive play-caller.
Bills | Dalton Kincaid sets record Fri Feb 9, 11:45 AM
Buffalo Bills TE Dalton Kincaid's 73 receptions in 2023 broke the franchise record for most receptions by a rookie.
|Footballguys view: The rookie tight end is just getting started. Kincaid is a dangerous receiving weapon, and he should continue to be a favorite target for QB Josh Allen.
FBS | Wink Martindale hired by Michigan Fri Feb 9, 10:40 AM
Former New York Giants defensive coordinator Don Martindale was hired as defensive coordinator at the University of Michigan Friday, Feb. 9.
|Footballguys view: Martindale goes to the college ranks to take over the Wolverines' defense. Michigan's last two defensive coordinators, Mike Macdonald and Jesse Minter, ran styles similar to that of Martindale. If/when he has success in college football, Martindale should have more pro opportunities in the future.
Ravens | Lamar Jackson takes home hardware Fri Feb 9, 10:31 AM
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was named the NFL's most valuable player Friday, Feb. 9.
|Footballguys view: Jackson was the best player in the league last year. It's too bad the Ravens fell short in the postseason again, because we want to see him take home the Lombardi Trophy.
Lamar Jackson player page
49ers | Coach not worried about George Kittle Fri Feb 9, 10:26 AM
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (toe) has been limited during practice this week, but head coach Kyle Shanahan said he has no worries about Kittle's availability for Super Bowl LVIII.
|Footballguys view: It's the biggest game of the year, and everything is on the line. Kittle will be out there come hell or high water. Sure, he's not 100 percent, but nobody is at this point.
George Kittle player page
Bengals | Cincinnati announces three coaching changes Thu Feb 8, 02:11 PM
Former Minnesota Vikings assistant offensive line coach Justin Rascati was named as the new pass game coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, Feb. 8. Assistant quarterbacks coach Brad Kragthorpe was promoted to quarterback coach, while assistant linebackers coach Jordan Kovacs was promoted to secondary/safeties coach.
|Footballguys view: The Bengals only need QB Joe Burrow to stay healthy and they will be Super Bowl contenders. The changes to the staff will work to get the best out of Burrow and the skill position players around him.
Justin Rascati player page
Raiders | JoJo Wooden bolting for Las Vegas Thu Feb 8, 01:17 PM
Los Angeles Chargers director of player personnel JoJo Wooden is expected to join the Las Vegas Raiders in a high-ranking executive role, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: Wooden gets to work with HC Antonio Pierce to find players that can make the Raiders competitive. They have a good core of players, but they're also in arguably the toughest division in football (AFC West).
Chargers | Mike Williams making progress Thu Feb 8, 11:52 AM
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) said he is 'slightly ahead' of schedule in his recovery from knee surgery. 'It's just timelines and stuff we were trying to meet and I'm hitting those timelines ahead of schedule,' Williams said. 'So, everything is looking good.'
|Footballguys view: All signs point to Williams being ready for training camp. We're certain the Chargers will take it easy on him during the offseason, and they may even keep him out of preseason games. Stay tuned.
