  Jets | NYJ, Jordan Travis to meet    Fri Apr 12, 04:46 PM

Florida State QB Jordan Travis is scheduled to have an official visit with the New York Jets this weekend, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Travis is an interesting developmental quarterback. He's got pocket presence and a quick release, but Travis needs time to develop. Travis can move, and he's a threat to take off and run. We like his ability to distribute, but he's been too much of a 'see-it, throw-it' guy at this point. Staying on time, throwing with anticipation, and staying healthy (he's a smaller prospect) are the biggest concerns with Travis.

  NFL | Tom Brady open to late-season return    Thu Apr 11, 03:32 PM

Retired NFL QB Tom Brady recently told Vic Blends of the DeepCut podcast that he would consider returning to the NFL if a team in contention lost its starting quarterback late in a season. While acknowledging the possibility that his return might be a violation of NFL rules - as a potential future minority owner of the Las Vegas Raiders - Brady suggested he could be tempted to play if the league allows him to do so.'I'm not opposed to it. I don't know if (the NFL is) going to let me, if I become an owner of an NFL team, I don't know. I'm always going to be in good shape, always going to be able to throw the ball. So, to come in for a little bit, like (Michael Jordan) coming back (to the NBA after becoming a part owner of a team), I don't know if they'd let me, but I wouldn't be opposed to it,' Brady said.

Footballguys view: Here we go again. Brady could still play, but he might have to be limited to a late-season return. Never say never, but it seems a bit far-fetched to think of a Brady return. It's a fun debate though!

  Vikings | Minnesota to meet privately with Jayden Daniels    Thu Apr 11, 02:16 PM

Louisiana State University QB Jayden Daniels is scheduled for a private meeting with the Minnesota Vikings in the near future, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Daniels is arguably the best quarterback in this draft class. He had 90 explosive plays (both as a passer and a runner) last year at LSU, and the Lamar Jackson comparisons are easy to see. The Vikings may fall in love with Daniels (everyone should) but we think they have their sights set on moving up for Drake Maye.

  Browns | Michael Pratt meets with Cleveland    Thu Apr 11, 02:07 PM

Tulane University QB Michael Pratt visited with the Cleveland Browns earlier in the week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Pratt is an interesting mid-round prospect in the 2024 NFL draft. He's a smart player who sees the field well and can throw downfield with touch. The Browns could add Pratt in the third or fourth round as a developmental prospect behind starting QB Deshaun Watson.

  Commanders | WAS to meet with 3 QBs    Thu Apr 11, 10:33 AM

North Carolina QB Drake Maye, LSU QB Jayden Daniels and Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy are scheduled to meet with the Washington Commanders next week.

Footballguys view: The Commanders are looking at quarterbacks, and they'll select one at the no.2 overall pick. With Caleb Williams going first to the Bears, Washington has their pick of the rest of a quality class. We've heard Commanders' GM Adam Peters loves Jayden Daniels, but we'll see if McCarthy or Maye can change his mind.

  Commanders | Jayden Daniels to visit WAS next week    Wed Apr 10, 01:19 PM

LSU QB Jayden Daniels is scheduled to visit the Washington Commanders next week, per sources on Wednesday, April 10.

Footballguys view: The Commanders new GM Adam Peters reportedly loves Daniles, and they could easily select him at no.2 overall. If selected, Daniels would immediately become the starter from day one with veteran Marcus Mariota backing him up.

  Commanders | Drake Maye to visit WAS next week    Wed Apr 10, 01:17 PM

North Carolina QB Drake Maye is scheduled to visit the Washington Commanders on Tuesday, April 16, and Wednesday, April 17, per sources.

Footballguys view: Some think Maye has 'fallen' in this draft, but that's likely inaccurate. Maye's stock is not falling, it's just that Jayden Daniels (LSU) stock is rising. We're hearing the Patriots would take Maye at no.3 overall, but they might just be trying to tempt the Vikings to move up. Rumors are swirling that Vikings' HC Kevin O'Connell loves Maye's ability.

  Colts | Anthony Richardson ramping up rehab    Mon Apr 8, 02:43 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is up to 40 throws per day as a part of his rehab program, according to sources Monday, April 8.

Footballguys view: Also ramping up? Richardson's Average Draft Position (ADP) in early best balls. He's currently QB6 on Underdog. All signs point to Richardson being ready to start Week 1. If so, he certainly belongs in the QB1 ranks.

  NFL | J.J. McCarthy the No. 2 QB?    Mon Apr 8, 01:44 AM

Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy 'could very well be the second quarterback off the board' in the 2024 NFL Draft, multiple league sources have told ESPN's Matt Miller.

Footballguys view: McCarthy has continued to gain momentum since his Michigan coach, Jim Harbaugh, now holding that same job for the Chargers, proclaimed him the best QB in this year's class. While Caleb Williams clearly holds that distinction where it matters most (in Chicago, where the Bears have the first pick overall), it does appear multiple teams are interested in McCarthy.

  Falcons | Taylor Heinicke takes big pay cut    Tue Apr 2, 12:52 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Taylor Heinicke recently agreed to a pay cut from his expected $5 million base salary in 2024 to $1.21 million. In addition, his $1.32 million roster bonus will now be classified as a signing bonus and his $40,000 per game active roster bonus was also removed from his contract.

Footballguys view: While Kirk Cousins is locked in as the starter in Atlanta, the veteran free-agent addition is coming off a season-ending Achilles' injury. Having an experienced backup like Heinicke -- at a reduced rate -- is a positive.

  Ravens | BAL offense evolving    Tue Apr 2, 10:58 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson may have fewer rushing attempts with RB Derrick Henry on the team as the Ravens plan to use fewer run-pass option plays. 'I don't see us going towards like [a] specific offense that runs those more than anybody else,' head coach John Harbaugh said. 'RPOs will be a part of what we're doing, for sure, but they're not going to be the main part of what we're doing.'

Footballguys view: Jackson won his second MVP award last season and took his passing game to a different level with career highs in passing yards (3,678) and completion percentage (67.2%). However, Jackson still led all quarterbacks with 821 rushing yards and his ability to stress defenses with his running is something the Ravens don't want to disappear. That said, the addition of Derrick Henry gives them a running back they can lean into and one that will perhaps allow Jackson to be more judicious in his choices to run.

  Steelers | Justin Fields had interest in four teams    Sun Mar 31, 09:49 AM

Former Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields, now with the Pittsburgh Steelers, had expressed interest in being traded to the Atlanta Falcons, Las Vegas Raiders, Minnesota Vikings or Steelers prior to the start of free agency, according to a source familiar with his thinking.

Footballguys view: The Falcons seemed to be the top desintation right up until they got behind Kirk Cousins. The Raiders do have Fields' OC from Chicago, Luke Getsy, running the offense; it's fair to wonder if that would have been a sticking point. The Vikings seem to have a plan for the upcoming draft. The Steelers have an aging and recently ineffective Russell Wilson. It's fair to say landing in Pittsburgh was a great spot once Atlanta was ruled out.
