Players not represented by an NFLPA certified contract adviser are permitted to communicate with teams’ front-office officials regarding contract negotiations, but not the head coach or other presenters of the coaching staff.

  • Seahawks signing LB Jerome Baker

    Seattle needed linebacker help after losing both Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks to free agency.

  • Here are the details of Derrick Henry’s two-year contract with the Ravens.

  • Who’s in the hunt for WR Mike Williams? Looks like Carolina, who recently traded for Diontae Johnson in an effort to get Bryce Young more wide receiver help.

  • Reports: Tyron Smith to join Jets

  • Jimmy Garoppolo joins Rams on 1-year deal

    Jimmy Garoppolo will enter the 2024 season as Matthew Stafford’s back-up after signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

  • Tampa Bay reportedly agrees to terms with QB John Wolford

  • Cowboys release WR Michael Gallup, per report

    Gallup will reportedly be released as a post-June 1 designation, saving the Cowboys $9.5 million under the salary cap. If Gallup remained on the roster through Saturday, $4 million of his $8.5 million base salary would have been guaranteed.

    He was reportedly given permission to seek a trade but couldn’t find a match.

  • Bills make Curtis Samuel signing official

  • The Steelers are paying league minimum ($1.21M) to Russell Wilson on his one-year deal. Pittsburgh could trade for Fields with the intention of triggering the fifth-year option and consider it a two-year sunken cost of about $30M (accounting for both Russ & Fields) for a starting QB in 2024-2025.

    In this scenario, Fields would unquestionably be competing with Russ for the Steelers’ starting job. This setup is now the most sensible path to the Bears dealing Justin Fields to his next team.

  • The Eagles addressed their need for an experienced backup trading for Kenny Pickett. It leaves a hole in the #Steelers QB depth chart.

    Russell Wilson is on a 1-year deal with no backup. Steelers were one of the teams that thought highly of #Bears Justin Fields.

    The math is mathing.

  • Steelers QB Kenny Pickett headed to Eagles, per report

    Pittsburgh signed Russell Wilson on the veteran minimum, and they followed up by sending their 2022 first-round pick to the Eagles in a pick swap.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Pittsburgh gets pick No. 98 and two 2025 7th-round picks. The Eagles reportedly get and pick No. 120.

    It’s similar to the exchange we saw yesterday when Washington sent Sam Howell to the Seahawks.

  • TE Chris Manhertz reportedly signing with Giants

  • Eagles edge rusher Josh Sweat restructures contract

  • 49ers reportedly sign former Packers LB De’Vondre Campbell

  • QB Russell Wilson explains decision to sign with Steelers

  • CB Artie Burns returns to Seattle

  • Calvin Ridley: ‘I’m the type of player that deserves this contract’

    No shortage of confidence from the Titans’ new wide receiver
