  NFL | Connor Williams receiving interest    Wed Jun 19, 03:25 PM

Free-agent C Connor Williams (knee) is receiving interest from several teams and expects to be ready to play once the regular season begins. He plans to sign with a team before the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: The Eagles, Jets, Chargers, Bears, and Giants are all possible landing spots for Williams, who is a solid starter that can upgrade unit with questions on the interior offensive line. A return to the Dolphins isn't out of the question. Williams is one of the more consequential free agents left on the market.

  NFL | Three teams interested in Jake Bates    Wed Jun 12, 01:37 PM

Free-agent PK Jake Bates (Texans) is receiving interest from the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. All three teams are looking to meet with Bates.

Footballguys view: Bates was a standout UFL kicker with makes from 58, 62, and 64 yards among his 17 conversions out of 22 attempts. He was kicking in Ford Field, so it makes sense that the Lions would be looking at him. The Packers could see him as an alternative to Anders Carlson, who missed six field goal attempts and five extra point attempts last year. The Ravens won't be replacing Justin Tucker, but Tucker won't see much work in camp or the preseason, and Bates could build his resume for another team to add him when they find they don't have a true winner in their kicker battle.

  NFL | David Johnson retires    Sun May 19, 02:03 PM

Free-agent RB David Johnson announced his retirement from the NFL on Sunday, May 19.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Northern Iowa in 2015 (Cardinals), Johnson was one of the best in the league when he was at his peak earlier in his career. That happened back in 2016, and Johnson never captured those numbers again (over 1,000 yards rushing, and over 850 yards receiving). Johnson was out of football in 2023, and he only briefly played with the Saints in 2022.

  NFL | Dalvin Cook taking calls    Sat May 18, 02:55 PM

Free-agent RB Dalvin Cook (Ravens) has been 'taking calls' from teams, although he didn't say which ones specifically, he said on Saturday, May 18.

Footballguys view: Cook is not the same player he used to be, but he could provide veteran depth for some team in need. Last year, Cook played for the Jets but was released after the season. The Ravens ended up signing him to the practice squad early in 2024, and he was active for the team's Divisional Round win over the Texans (eight carries, 23 yards). Cook is a seasoned veteran who will be ready when he gets the call, but that might not come until training camp and the preseason in August.

  NFL | NFC East was looking at MarShawn Lloyd    Thu May 9, 12:52 AM

Green Bay Packers RB MarShawn Lloyd was being looked at by the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants during the 2024 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: That makes sense, and not selecting Lloyd could be a move both teams regret. Lloyd is a speed back who can make big plays as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. As a rookie, Lloyd will compete with AJ Dillon to be the backup to Josh Jacobs for the Packers.

  NFL | Shedeur Sanders would have been QB1?    Tue May 7, 11:13 AM

Colorado QB Shedeur Sanders was the top quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft class if he entered, according to one longtime NFL scout. 'He was [the top QB] for me if he came out this year,' the scout said. 'You have to manage him a little differently, and Deion (Sanders) is going to be heavily involved... so you have to be prepared to deal with that... but I love watching that kid play.

  NFL | Ladd McConkey likely to be drafted early on Friday    Fri Apr 26, 04:11 PM

University of Georgia WR Ladd McConkey could be selected as early as No. 34 overall to the New England Patriots in the 2024 NFL Draft on Friday, April 26. Even if the Patriots pass, the Tennessee Titans (No. 38), Washington Commanders (Nos. 36 and 40) and Indianapolis Colts (No. 46) all reportedly have interest in selecting him, according to Sportskeeda's Tony Pauline.

Footballguys view: McConkey has some Cooper Kupp to his game. We wouldn't have been surprised to see him as a first-round pick, but now he's available on Day 2. It shouldn't take too long for him to go off the board.

  NFL | At least two teams talking trade for Deebo Samuel    Fri Apr 26, 02:21 PM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel appears more likely to be traded at this point than teammate Brandon Aiyuk. According to Boston Sports Journal's Mike Giardi, the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots are the two teams showing the most interest in acquiring Samuel - presumably with their selections at the top of the second round.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here. Aiyuk and the team want to come to an agreement on a long-term deal, but there was some thought he might be traded during the draft. The 49ers selected Florida WR Ricky Pearsall in the first round of the 2024 NFL draft, so perhaps trading Samuel would make sense.
