    You always hate to see this:

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    The MMQB's Albert Breer reports Ohio State C Billy Price is believed to have suffered a torn pectoral during the bench press at the Combine.

    It's the worst possible news after Price went down in pain following his third rep on Thursday. Generally regarded as the top pivot in the draft, Price had a shot at sneaking into the first round. That's probably gone now. The good news is, Price should have enough time to get healthy for Week 1.

    Some team may get him at a bargain.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If only there was a team out there that needed an upgrade at center. Not the Bengals, though, because they plan to re-sign Russell Bodine.

    They are always going to be one or two players away....for eternity.

    NFL teams want Lamar Jackson to go through the WR drills at the combine.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    NFL.com's Kimberly Jones considers Wyoming QB Josh Allen the quarterback who "helped himself the most" at the Combine.

    After measuring in at 6-foot-5, 237 pounds, Allen put on a show with his arm and tested well athletically. Allen's arm and athleticism have never really been in question. It's his accuracy that's the issue. For his part, Allen says he's been "working on his footwork and 'toning down' his stride length." It's rare for quarterbacks to truly overhaul their mechanics. Allen is going to be high risk, high reward, likely in the top 10 and perhaps much higher.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    NFL draft insider Tony Pauline says "belief" around the league is free agent OG Andrew Norwell signing with the Giants is "a done deal."

    The top guard on the market, Norwell was one of ex-Panthers GM Dave Gettleman's most-prized discoveries as an undrafted free agent. Gettleman now runs the Giants, who have needs all over the line. At $11.7 million per year, the Raiders made Kelechi Osemele the NFL's highest-paid guard in 2016. Osemele was topped by Browns RG Kevin Zeitler's $12.0 million annually last offseason.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    The Seattle Times confirms the Seahawks are expected to release Richard Sherman ahead of the new league year, but that they will be open to re-signing him at a lower price.

    That presumably means Sherman has already declined to take a pay cut on his scheduled $11 million salary. We doubt Sherman will be terribly interested in re-signing with the team that cut him. Sherman will be eligible to sign the second he's released but it's possible he will take his time as he recovers from Achilles' operations to both feet.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    49ers signed WR Marquise Goodwin to a three-year, $20.3 million extension through 2021.

    It includes $10 million guaranteed. The 49ers signed Goodwin to a bargain two-year, $8 million contract last March and he responded by posting new career bests across the board, coming within 38 yards of 1,000. He seamlessly slid in as the 49ers' No. 1 receiver after Pierre Garcon was lost for the season and showed excellent chemistry with Jimmy Garoppolo. Goodwin is unlikely to ever be a true No. 1, but he's proven he can be an excellent No.2. 2018 will be Goodwin's age-28 campaign.

    A very risky move by the Dolphins, who continue to do head-scratching moves every season,... the Chicago Bulls of the NFL.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Dolphins signed franchised player Jarvis Landry to a one-year, $15.982 million contract.

    Landry signing the tender means the Dolphins are no longer able to rescind the tag, which could be a concern with seemingly little movement in trade talks -- The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson tweeted a trade is "not imminent." The Dolphins are over the cap as it stands now, and while cutting guys like Lawrence Timmons and Julius Thomas will give them some room, it will not be enough to really be a player in free agency. Miami needs to find a trade partner for Landry.

    Re: 2018 NFL Season Thread

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Giants acquired ILB Alec Ogletree and a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Rams in exchange for 2018 fourth- and sixth-round picks.

    The Rams just signed Ogletree to a four-year, $42 million extension in October but evidently didn't like his fit in DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense. L.A. was gashed by the run last season, and playing Ogletree and Mark Barron, a pair of converted safeties, at inside linebacker was a big reason for that. Both are extremely athletic, but they were too light and got pushed around by offensive linemen. The Rams recoup the fourth-rounder they sent to K.C. in the Marcus Peters deal with this move and clear a bunch of cash off the books for future long-term deals. Linebacker was a massive need for the Giants.

    For those who didn't see it:

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Eagles acquired DL Michael Bennett and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for WR Marcus Johnson and a 2018 fifth-round pick.

    The rich get richer. Eagles EVP Howie Roseman may be the most aggressive decision-maker in the biz, and he adds Bennett to an already-loaded defensive line. The Seahawks were dangling Bennett to, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "quiet things down a little bit" and clear cap space. Bennett has long been outspoken on social issues, something the Eagles aren't afraid of in the least bit, considering they employ Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long, and Torrey Smith. And still won the Super Bowl. How about that? Bennett is 32 but remains an absolute asset. He and Fletcher Cox will likely man the interior on passing downs, with Brandon Graham and Derek Barnett coming off the edges. Fellow DLs Timmy Jernigan and Chris Long are also in the mix. Good luck to opposing offensive linemen. This likely spells the end for DE Vinny Curry in Philly. The draw for Seattle was the fifth-rounder. Johnson, 24 in August, caught five passes for 45 yards across 10 games for the Super Bowl champs last season and is a special teams cog. He blazed a 4.37 forty at his 2016 Pro Day.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Steelers assigned the franchise tag to RB Le'Veon Bell.

    It locks Bell into $14.5 million for 2018. Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Bell has now made that his floor for average-annual value in long-term talks. The sides have until July 16 to reach an agreement. Absent a long-term deal, Bell is expected to again skip training camp. Both sides have said they want to get something done, but the high price of the tag and current league-wide running back economics are going to make talks extremely tricky.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Bears assigned the transition tag to CB Kyle Fuller.

    The tag is worth $12.971 million, providing $2 million in savings from the franchise tag. It's not exclusive, but gives the Bears the right of first refusal should Fuller sign an offer sheet elsewhere. With plenty of cap space, the Bears will almost certainly be matching any offer Fuller gets. If they ended up passing, they would receive zero compensation if Fuller walked. The Bears bungled the overall situation by not exercising Fuller's fifth-year team option last spring.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Panthers re-signed K Graham Gano to a four-year, $17 million contract.

    The deal includes $9 million guaranteed. Gano was going to be franchise tagged absent a long-term deal. Headed into his age-31 season, Gano has been the Panthers' kicker since 2012. He's an acceptable 81.7 percent field goal kicker for his career, though he was excellent in 2017, draining 29-of-30 attempts. Gano does not have a particularly big leg, making just six 50-yard plus kicks over the past four seasons.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Rams assigned the non-exclusive franchise tag to S Lamarcus Joyner.

    Keeping Joyner became a priority after he experienced a breakout 2017 following his full-time switch to safety. The tag is worth $11.287 million for safeties. The move means Sammy Watkins is now headed to the open market. The Rams have until July 16 to work out a long-term agreement with Joyner. The Rams will not assign the franchise tag to WR Sammy Watkins, letting him become an unrestricted free agent. The Rams tagged S Lamarcus Joyner before Tuesday's deadline, allowing Watkins to hit the open market when free agency begins March 14. The Rams supposedly want to keep Watkins, but they have yet to be aggressive in that department. Watkins has every incentive to test the market, and not settle for a deal any time in the next eight days.
