  Ravens | Baltimore likely to pick a running back    Sun Apr 14, 11:57 AM

Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said there is a 'strong chance' that the team will select a running back in the 2024 NFL Draft. He believes a lot of backs will be chosen between the third and fifth rounds and said that the Ravens have looked at a lot of the players projected to be drafted during those rounds. RBs Derrick Henry, Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell are currently the top three players on Baltimore's depth chart at the position.

Footballguys view: Behind Henry, who is nearing the end of his career, the Ravens have some interesting/explosive talent in guys like Hill and Mitchell. However, they could use more talent and could add a potential future starter in the mid-rounds of the draft. We could see them drafting someone like Braelon Allen (Wisconsin) or Marshawn Lloyd (USC) in the third round to push Hill and Mitchell for playing time.

  Broncos | Keilan Robinson visits Monday    Fri Apr 12, 06:37 PM

Texas RB Keilan Robinson had an official visit with the Denver Broncos Monday, April 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a late-round or priority free agent, but he's got upside as a dual-purpose back. He's got instincts as a runner, but Robinson can stand out on screen passes where his moves and speed can make defenders look silly. Robinson is bounce-happy, and he too often looks to go outside instead of sticking his foot in the ground and plugging it up the middle when things are cramped. That won't work in the pros.

  Titans | Tennessee heading for split backfield    Thu Apr 11, 11:47 AM

Tennessee Titans RBs Tony Pollard and Tyjae Spears are expected to split the backfield workload in a '1A, 1B' situation, said offensive coordinator Nick Holz on Wednesday, April 10. 'We see it 1A, 1B, and they're both just gonna play a ton, get a lot of carries and let 'em roll,' Holz said.

Footballguys view: Spears is a great back, and we were excited to see him as a rookie last year behind Derrick Henry. With Henry gone and Pollard added, the Titans have two backs that could be featured players. This RBBC is not great from a fantasy perspective, so we'll have to see if one emerges as the favorite during training camp and the preseason.

  NFL | Two teams interested in Blake Watson    Thu Apr 11, 09:25 AM

Memphis RB Blake Watson had an official visit with the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday, April 9, and is scheduled to visit with the Denver Broncos before the 2024 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: You want to get a Memphis back, and Watson is a great sleeper in this draft class. He's an explosive player with a three-down skill set, and our very own Cecil Lammey was impressed by Watson earlier this year during the week of practice for the East-West Shrine Bowl. Watson is likely a Day-3 pick with upside.

  Browns | Nick Chubb restructures    Thu Apr 11, 08:53 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb restructured his contract Thursday, April 11, to reduce his $11.775 million base salary with a chance to earn it back in incentives.

Footballguys view: Chubb is coming back from a knee injury that cut his 2023 season short in Week 2. This year, Chubb could regain his form and help lead the way on the ground for the Browns. The injury is a concern, and the Browns could ramp him up for the regular season by limiting him in training camp and the preseason. Stay tuned.

  Chargers | Blake Corum to meet with LAC    Tue Apr 2, 07:05 PM

Michigan RB Blake Corum said he is scheduled to have an official visit with the Los Angeles Chargers before the 2024 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Corum was one of the most productive running backs in Michigan's history, running for 3,506 career yards and 56 touchdowns in three seasons. The Chargers have former Baltimore Raven Gus Edwards at the top of their depth chart. Whether it's Corum or somebody else, an addition is likely in this month's draft.

  Chiefs | Clyde Edwards-Helaire back for another year    Tue Apr 2, 04:08 PM

Free-agent RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (Chiefs) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract to return to the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, April 2. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: A former first-round pick, Edwards-Helaire had 1,100 yards from scrimmage with five total touchdowns as a rookie. But injuries and Isiah Pacheco's rise have relegated CEH to a minor role, and the Chiefs declined his fifth-year option last spring. Edwards-Helaire had 411 yards from scrimmage on 87 touches as the Chiefs won Super Bowl LVIII. In 48 games with 32 starts, Edwards-Helaire has recorded 1,845 yards rushing with 12 touchdowns. He's also caught 89 passes for 765 yards with seven TDs.

  Chiefs | Kansas City getting to know J.K. Dobbins    Tue Apr 2, 12:41 PM

Free-agent RB J.K. Dobbins (Ravens) is reportedly visiting with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, April 2.

Footballguys view: After recently receiving medical clearance following last year's torn Achilles tendon, Dobbins reportedly has a visit scheduled with the Chargers. Injuries have been an issue. Dobbins lost all of the 2021 season when he tore his ACL in the final preseason game. He was back for the start of 2022 but missed six weeks of the season due to arthroscopic knee surgery. He missed nearly all of the 2023 after going down in Week 1. Perhaps a chance of scenery will bring a change of luck.

  Browns | Nyheim Hines on track    Mon Apr 1, 10:01 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nyheim Hines (knee) said he has been making good progress in his rehab and believes he is on track with his recovery.

Footballguys view: With the NFL's new kickoff rules, Hines' elite return ability is worth noting. He has averaged 11.4 yards on 89 punt returns (with two touchdowns) and 25.5 yards on 32 kickoff returns (with four touchdowns) in his career. Hines also wants to contribute as a running back, providing depth behind Nick Chubb and Jerome Ford, with Chubb still working his way back from a serious knee injury of his own.

  Commanders | Jeremy McNichols heads to Commanders    Mon Apr 1, 03:49 PM

McNichols only appeared in three games for the Niners and saw all of his playing time on special teams. He played an offensive role during his two seasons with the Titans and ran the ball 88 times for 360 yards and a touchdown while catching 40 passes for 295 yards and a score. The Commanders also have Austin Ekeler, Brian Robinson, and Chris Rodriguez on hand at running back.

  Browns | Nick Chubb making good progress in rehab    Tue Mar 26, 01:15 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) is 'doing a fantastic job with his rehab' and should be able to move from the conditioning phase of his rehab to some pre-football activity, according to general manager Andrew Berry.'As we think about it, until we see him in the next couple of months, I think the next - call it three - months will be pretty telling in terms of his potential readiness for early in the season. We're going to be conservative in terms of our approach in our assessment with building the roster because (Chubb is) coming off of a major knee injury. But I do have to give him a lot of credit. He's done a really, really nice job. But I think we'll have a better sense. Don't hold me to it, but I think probably if you ask me that question around the draft, I may have maybe a little bit more of a specific answer,' Berry said.
