A major rebuild is on the horizon for the New England Patriots, and they are urged to let go of one of their most tenured players to get started. The PFF has JC Jackson listed as one of the cut candidates this summer, who has spent five of his seven NFL seasons with the New England Patriots, with the other two with the Los Angeles Chargers. “This is a bit of a formality after the Patriots inherited Jackson’s contract from the Los Angeles Chargers with the 2023 salary reduced down close to the minimum, and now the salaries balloon back…

One of the most important areas to improve by the Indianapolis Colts this offseason is their defense, which has surrendered 3,842 opposing passing yards, 21 passing touchdowns, 2,105 rushing yards, and 22 rushing touchdowns during the 2023 campaign. And with one of the most productive cornerbacks available in free agency soon, they might have to consider bringing him on, and the guy that we’re talking about is Xavien Howard. Xavien Howard is reported to be a cut candidate for the Miami Dolphins this summer, which would see them save around $18.5 million in cap space. Many members of the Miami…

If the Kansas City Chiefs want to complete a rare Super Bowl three-peat next season, they must be able to upgrade their wide receiver depth, and Robert Griffin III has an interesting proposal. The former NFL signal-caller called for the back-to-back champions to sign Odell Beckham Jr. this offseason, insisting that he is still a “dynamic” wideout. “The Chiefs SHOULD SIGN Odell Beckham Jr. Last year, he proved he is STILL DYNAMIC after being 8th in the NFL, averaging 16.1 yards per catch,” Griffin tweeted. “The Chiefs struggled with drops last year, but OBJ had the lowest drop rate of…

The good news for the Miami Dolphins is that Jaelan Phillips is recovering ahead of schedule. The 24-year-old linebacker was seen walking unaided again three months after rupturing his Achilles. He still has a long way to go to get back to 100 percent, but Jaelan Phillips is determined to make a comeback next season. It’s a good thing, though, that he has been attacking this major setback with a great mindset. “It’s definitely different. It’s something that’s kind of new to me because I’ve never had a lower-extremity injury like that — long term, at least,” said Phillips via…

Darren Waller gave his honest opinion when he was asked whether Taylor Swift should get a ring from the Kansas City Chiefs, who won their second consecutive Super Bowl just a few weeks ago. In an ambush interview by TMZ, the New York Giants tight end respectfully said that the international pop star should not get one, but he also conceded that it’s not up to him whether she’ll get one or not. NFL champion teams have the power to dole the Super Bowl rings out to whoever they choose, from the players, to the coaches and staff, and even…

One of the biggest needs that the New Orleans Saints have to address this offseason is bolstering their offensive line. And because they have the No. 14 pick, they have a great opportunity to do so by getting one of the best young tackles in the country today. With that said, several mock drafts have New Orleans selecting JC Latham in the 2024 NFL Draft, as they believe that the Alabama standout can immediately contribute to their offense next season. “Latham is a strong and lengthy offensive tackle that can slot into either spot on the edges of the Saints…

Craig Carton said on the Tuesday edition of his FS1 program that the Philadelphia Eagles dealt with “a problem that would splinter any group of men” which “cannot be fixed”. He also said that it would be very interesting to see if a “high-profile player is no longer with the Philadelphia Eagles going into this season”, which was implied to be Fletcher Cox. The key reason why Fletcher Cox was implicated is because of the reports that he “questioned” Jalen Hurts about his leadership last season. However, Howard Eskin from Philadelphia’s 94WIP said that such reports were a “total exaggeration.”…

There was speculation about Frank Ragnow’s future when he said that he “needed some time to figure things out” following their loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game, but during the most recent NFL Honors event, he said that he’ll be playing for at least one more season. “I’m not retiring,” Ragnow said. “I just need a few weeks to get healthy.” This is great news for the Detroit Lions since Frank Ragnow has not only become the team’s franchise cornerstone over the years but arguably the best center in the NFL.  Frank Ragnow’s taxing 2023…

Newly minted Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen heaped praise on Josh Allen, saying that he is excited to work with him next season.  “Really excited to work with him, heard nothing but great things. I talked to Josh, and he’s been fantastic. That’ll get worked out, get him back and get him going, hopefully get him to improve,” said Nielsen last week. “That’s the ultimate goal, if we can just get that much better next year, what does that look like? That’s pretty exciting. That’s what we want to work towards,” he added. Josh Allen has said multiple times…

The Denver Broncos are in a precarious financial situation since they’ll enter the 2024 offseason projected to be $30 million above the salary cap, and that’s not even to mention the dead-money cap hit if they somehow cut Russell Wilson. To alleviate their situation, the Denver Broncos might have to let go of certain players to create some much-needed cap space, and the Over The Cap website had Courtland Sutton as a potential cap casualty this summer. Sutton still has two years left on his current deal with the Denver Broncos, where he’ll be making roughly $14 million annually, so…
