NFL - Fantasy Football Player News & Updates  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

Andy Dalton (thumb) has not started throwing yet.

Dalton has stated that his thumb has recovered enough to begin throwing, but is is certainly understandable that he and the team want to be patient through the offseason. Analysis: Nate Miller

$6 million of Jairus Byrd's $7.4 million base salary has become fully guaranteed.

A three-time Pro Bowler for the Bills from 2009-12, it is safe to say that Byrd has been a bust over his two years in New Orleans. However, that is mostly due to injuries that have limited him to 17 games over that span. It definitely looks like he will be back in a Saints uniform next season with hopes to make good on the money. Analysis: Nate Miller

Saints have re-signed Austin Johnson on Wednesday.

Johnson played in 10 games for the Saints this past season, rushing for one touchdown and catching 5-of-8 targets in the passing game. The 26 year old is used mostly for blocking.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Joe Haden's $10.1 million base salary became fully guaranteed on Wednesday.

Haden's contract was guaranteed for injury upon signing. The two-time Pro Bowler played in just five games in 2015, but is still viewed among the top corners in the league. Analysis: Nate Miller

Malik Jackson said he hopes to stay with the Broncos long-term.

Jackson started all 16 regular season games for the Super Bowl Champs this past season, piling up 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks and seven pass deflections. A fifth-round pick of the Broncos in 2012, the 26 year old has been an integral part of the defensive unit for three years running. Analysis: Nate Miller

As of 4 pm on Wednesday $10 million of Drew Brees $20 million becomes guaranteed.

This development just simply confirms that Drew Brees will indeed be staying in New Orleans. That is something that was never really in serious doubt.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Eagles have re-signed Najee Goode to a one-year deal.

Goode has spent each of the last three seasons in Philly and saw action in 14 games in 2015, making five total tackles. Analysis: Nate Miller

Armonty Bryant has been indicted on felony drug charges.

According to court documents adderall, marijuana, oxycodone and two other gun were found in the car on Christmas morning this past December when Bryant and a former teammate were pulled over for speeding. The Browns have not yet cut ties with Bryant but not only is he being tried for felony drug charges but he is also going to suffer discipline by the NFL for violating the leagues personal conduct policy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jon Beason has retired from football.

Beason has dealt with a variety of injuries throughout his career and appeared in just nine games over the last two seasons. In fact, he's only appeared in 29 games since 2011. The Giants need to get younger, faster and stronger up the middle on defense, so Beason's departure isn't going to hurt too much. Look for the Giants to address their linebacker corps in both free agency and the draft. Analysis: Howard Bender

Dannell Ellerbe has restructured his contract to stay with the Saints.

The 30-year old reserve linebacker signed a five-year $35 million deal in 2015 and the Saints simply have too many holes to fill right now to allow him to stay at his current salary. Kudos to him for being a team player and you can expect to see him supporting the defensive starters throughout the year. Analysis: Howard Bender

Colts are likely to release Andre Johnson this offseason.

Johnson entered the 2015 season with great expectations that he would thrive in the Colts pass first offense with quarterback Andrew Luck but unfortunately the Colts offense struggled and Andrew Luck missed the majority of the season. Johnson was finished the season with 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns as he saw himself passed on the depth chart by Donte Moncrief. At 34 years old Johnson will likely only be seeing short term deals once he hits free agency as some teams hope he has some gas left in the tank. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Giants have released Will Beatty on Wednesday.

Beatty was the Giants starting tackle from 2011-2014 but missed all of 2015 due to injury. The veteran offensive linemen should have little trouble hooking onto another team assuming he has fully recovered from shoulder surgery. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

An arrest warrant for LeSean McCoy will be issued on Wednesday or Thursday.

There was an incident late night/early morning incident over the weekend in Philadelphia where McCoy and a friend were allegedly involved in a physical altercation with two police officers. No arrests were made at the time and both officers ended up at the hospital to be treated for undisclosed injuries. Witnesses put McCoy at the scene and involved, so the warrant will be easily executed. How this will affect McCoy's status next season is not yet known as the league will likely wait until legal proceedings are complete before taking additional action.  Analysis: Howard Bender

The Giants have released G Geoff Schwartz.

This is one of those deals that the Giants have regretted ever since the ink got dry. Schwartz signed a four-year, $16.8 million contract before the 2014 season but made only 13 of 32 starts because of multiple injuries. These injuries included a trip to the I.R. designated for return in 2014 with a toe injury. He also had his 2015 season cut short after breaking his ankle in Week 12. This 30-year-old is a tough run blocker when he is actually on the field and should be able to find a new home. This move will save the Giants $2.99 million against the cap. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Bills are expected to release Mario Williams.

It was obvious that he was not fitting into the defensive scheme being employed by Rex Ryan and his staff. At 31 years of age, he still should have some skills left to devote to another team that will utilize his pass rush and tackling abilities. Look for him to catch on with another team if Buffalo decides to cut him loose. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
