Dalton has probably been the most-discussed potential option for New England if Brady leaves. He's a steady veteran who has displayed a measure of consistency throughout his career, and actually led the Cincinnati Bengals to multiple playoff appearances in a row. Cincy is obviously widely expected to take Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick, and it would not make much sense to keep Dalton on the roster at his cap hit when they could move on without dead money. Perhaps they try to wait until the last minute for a trade, but it seems more likely they cut him loose before the free-agency period opens and let him find a new team where he can at least compete for the starting job. … [Read more...] about What are the Patriots’ options at quarterback if Tom Brady really leaves in free agency?

With the salary cap only projected to increase over the next few seasons and the potential ability to make that cap hit on a new Brady deal less damaging to the overall structure of the club, it would make sense for the Patriots to wait and see how the CBA shakes out before engaging their franchise icon in contract talks. … [Read more...] about Tom Brady free agency: New CBA may be reason for lack of contract negotiations with Patriots, per report

Finlay also adds that a franchise tag could happen if the two sides can't get a deal done before the new league year. Spotrac's calculated market value predicts that Scherff will receive a four-year deal worth nearly $50 million which will include an average salary of $12.4 million. That deal would make him the third highest-paid offensive guard in terms of annual salary behind Zack Martin of the Dallas Cowboys and Andrew Norwell of the Jacksonville Jaguars. … [Read more...] about Ron Rivera says Redskins have begun contract talks with impending free agent Brandon Scherff
For the third straight year, we're staring down the barrel of what will be a very active offseason for the New York Giants franchise. Although the Giants were already expected to have a projected sixth-most salary cap space (per OverTheCap), the number has since grown with the recent releases of veteran linebackers Alec Ogletree and Kareem Martin. More moves are likely to come and the Giants will position themselves to be among the most active spenders in free agency, via the draft, and potentially via the trade market where current general manager Dave Gettleman has proved to be very active. None of this should be surprising considering the Giants' struggles in recent seasons and considerin the fact that they got their offseason started a lot sooner than most teams with their decision to move on from former head coach Pat Shurmur shortly after the conclusion of the 2019 regular season. … [Read more...] about Giants 2020 offseason tracker: Free agency scorecard, key dates, NFL draft news, latest updates and more
