Dak to Be Tagged?
With the deadline to tag players set to close on the 10th, the Cowboys seem content on placing the tag on Dak. A source has said once the new CBA is voted on a long term deal would likely follow to keep Dak in a Cowboy's uniform for the foreseeable future.
Henry Likely to be Tagged
The Chargers are hopeful they will be able to get a long term deal done with their star tight end prior to the tag deadline. However, if they are unable to do so they will in fact place the franchise tag on Henry. The Chargers know that their is only a number of quality tight ends out there in the league and would need to secure him as he would draw significant interest on the open market. Teams that are in need of a tight end are New England, Chicago, Washington, and now with Hooper set to test the market Atlanta just to name a few. Despite his storied injury history Henry remains a top tight end in the league.
Winston Out in Tampa?
Peter King has reported that their is a growing frustration within the organization with Jameis Winston's turnovers. This frustration is looking more and more like the team will move on from the quarterback in 2020. Coach Arians is adamant in the fact they will explore other and all options this off season. The other options on the table include a deep free agent class at the position which includes Tom Brady, Phil Rivers, Teddy Bridgewater, and Ryan Tannehill just to name a few. The other option would be to draft a rookie quarterback this spring like a Justin Herbert to be the teams quarterback of the future.
Hunt Not Charged
Kareem Hunt will not be charged with possession of marijuana stemming from a traffic stop back in January in Rocky River. Hunt was found to be in possession of a small amount of the green stuff. Hunt would go onto admit to the stopping officer that he would fail a drug test if administered. Hunt is a pending restricted free agent with the Browns and the team will have to decide if the talented yet oft-troubled running back is worth the risk. A suspension may still follow by the league which could cost him some games.
Denver in the RB Business?
It has been reported that the Denver Broncos are very much interested in this off seasons running back free agents. Those backs drawing interest include Derrick Henry, Melvin Gordon, Kenyan Drake, Carlos Hyde, and Jordon Howard. Royce Freeman has underwhelmed the last two years and Phillip Lindsay has been up and down as well. If Denver was smart they would address other issues on their roster, and spend their money more wisely than on ageing backs.
