  NFL | Cam Newton not ready to retire    Wed Sep 8, 12:51 PM

Free-agent QB Cam Newton (Patriots) said on Instagram Wednesday, Sept. 8, that he has a lot of football left and isn't ready to retire.

Footballguys view: Newton doesn't have a new team yet, but it shouldn't be too long before some squad out there picks him up. Most thought the Cowboys would go after Newton when he was released by the Patriots but that hasn't happened. Instead, they picked up Will Grier off waivers and Newton is left to wait. He's not retiring but there's no telling where Newton will land. Stay tuned.

  NFL | Two interested in Dede Westbrook    Fri Jul 23, 06:01 PM

Free-agent WR Dede Westbrook (Jaguars) said he is receiving interest from the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals in addition to the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are counting on Jalen Hurd to stay healthy and fill their opening in the slot, but if he can't, Westbrook would help replace Kendrick Bourne and give the team some experienced depth. Westbrook wouldn't be higher than the #5 receiver on the Bengals depth chart, but as a team that relies on three-wide sets as their base offense, more depth is never a bad thing.

  NFL | Kawann Short gets clean bill of health    Tue Jul 20, 02:32 PM

Free-agent DT Kawann Short (Panthers) was recently cleared for football activity after undergoing shoulder surgery last season and is already in discussions with a handful of teams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Short is a major disruptor from the interior defensive line, a commodity that almost every team needs. He is an under the radar impact player who can make players in key situations. The Saints, Chargers, Cowboys, Rams, and Seahawks are among the teams that could use Short and have incentive to sign him as playoff contenders.

Free-agent RB D.J. Foster (Cardinals) signed an undisclosed contract with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League on Monday, July 19.

  NFL | Ted Ginn retires    Fri Jul 16, 06:39 PM

Free-agent WR Ted Ginn Jr. (Bears) announced his retirement from professional football Friday, July 16.

Footballguys view: Ginn was a shocking pick for Miami over Brady Quinn at the #9 pick of the 2007 draft to give you an idea of just how long he has been playing. He'll finish his career with over 15,000 all purpose yards and 42 total touchdowns. Ginn's longevity is a testament to the value of speed and return prowess.

  NFL | Adrian Peterson wants to play    Fri Jul 16, 05:18 PM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Lions) said he has been working out and is waiting for a team to sign him. He said his body feels good and is ready to play in 2021.

Footballguys view: Peterson might not be on a roster to start the season, but his tried and true ability to handle a heavy workload and put stress on a defense will likely get him calls during the season when teams are looking at playing inexperienced players in the backfield because of injuries.

  NFL | Richard Sherman charged with 5 misdemeanors    Fri Jul 16, 02:39 PM

Free agent CB Richard Sherman (49ers) on Friday, July 16, was charged with five misdemeanors after his arrest Wednesday in Seattle. The charges are criminal trespass in the second degree with a domestic-violence element, reckless endangerment of roadway crews, driving under the influence, resisting arrest and malicious mischief with a domestic-violence element, according to a report in the Seattle Times. Sherman has a court appearance scheduled Friday afternoon.

Footballguys view: Sherman's 2021 football prospects seem unimportant right now, as he has acknowledged that he needs help related to mental and emotional health. He is likely to face a league suspension eventually, but also is far away from being ready to contribute to a team right now.

  NFL | Adrian Peterson feeling fit, ready    Fri Jul 16, 01:04 PM

Free agent RB Adrian Peterson says he's fit and is ready to go as he awaits a call from an NFL team. 'The training is going well and I'm going to control the things that I can control right now, and, when that time comes, somebody will give me a call,' Peterson said in an interview Thursday, July 15. 'That's all I'm asking for. My body feels good. I came out healthy from last season. My body feels strong. I still feel young. I still feel good. I'm ready to play ball.'

Footballguys view: Peterson is just patiently waiting for a team to show interest. The veteran can still play and produce if called upon, and there should be somebody out there who wants to pick him up. Perhaps when injuries hit in training camp and the preseason we'll see a team pick up Peterson. He's looking for a contender to join as a role player.

  NFL | Jordan Matthews to work out for teams    Wed Jul 14, 06:37 PM

Free-agent TE Jordan Matthews (49ers) is scheduled to work out for NFL scouts this weekend. He has added 15 pounds this offseason to help with his transition to tight end.

Footballguys view: There was news about Matthews converting to tight end about a month ago. We've seen a similar transition with WR/TE Kelvin Benjamin (Giants) and now Matthews is working diligently to take that step. He appeared in two games last year for the 49ers but did not get any targets. Some have speculated the Eagles could be interested but nothing has yet developed. Matthews will have a chance to impress teams this weekend.

  NFL | Larry Fitzgerald still undecided    Fri Jul 9, 06:14 PM

Free-agent WR Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals) said he still has not decided if he wants to play this season.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald is open to returning and would have interest if he decides to play in 2021. The Cardinals acquired A.J. Green this offseason, but that doesn't shut the door on keeping Fitzgerald. He's never won a Super Bowl and would be looking to join a contender (most likely) if he keeps playing.

Free-agent TE Delanie Walker (Titans) said he wants to play this season but is not sure which teams are interested in him.

Footballguys view: Walker opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID concerns but he wants to get back to playing football this year. He has had some interest earlier this offseason and could end up back with the 49ers. Walker is no longer the player he used to be but some team should want him as a veteran depth player. We'll see if he can find a new home before the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Lynch, a first-round pick of the Broncos in the 2016 NFL draft, has bounced around the league as a bust. His work ethic was questioned but his arm strength and athleticism was not. He gets a fresh start in Canada but is unlikely to play in the NFL again.

  NFL | Demaryius Thomas retires    Mon Jun 28, 12:15 PM

Former Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas announced his retirement Monday, June 28.

Footballguys view: Thomas, a first-round pick of the Broncos in 2010, was one of the best receivers in the league when he was at the top of his game. The second-leading receiver in franchise history, Thomas was selected to five Pro Bowls during his nine seasons with the Broncos. He was part of the winningest four-year period in team history from 2012-15 (55-17), winning two AFC Championships and Super Bowl 50. Thomas should be inducted into the Broncos Ring of Fame in the near future.

'I have to get surgery on my ankle a third time,' DeCastro said in a text. 'I tried to fix it last year but the bone spurs kept coming back. It nagged me pretty bad all last year.'

Footballguys view: DeCastro is one of the best guards of this era and it will be sad if he can't go out on his own terms. This should quiet any remaining clamor from fans for their team to sign DeCastro in the wake of his release.

Footballguys view: Guice, a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, has talent as a runner but will find it difficult to latch on with a new team this summer. If some team picks him up, Fantasy GMs in super deep dynasty formats should take note.
