Latest NFL Free Agency Rumors and News

Jets and Rodgers continue talks Tuesday

It is worth noting that NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport confirmed that the New York Jets received permission from the Green Bay Packers to speak directly to Aaron Rodgers. ESPN’s Dan Graziano had reported that the two parties would continue their dialogue on Tuesday, although no trade is imminent.

With the Packers showing openness to a deal and not adopting the mindset that Rodgers won’t play at all unless he’s in Green Bay, it seems like we’re moving towards a solution that ends in a trade elsewhere.

Giants are working on deals with Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley

There’s no team with more at stake before the franchise tag deadline than the New York Giants. Jones continued to be the priority for a long-term deal, but ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported “It’s really 50/50” whether he’s tagged or inked for multiple years. The ripple effect of New York having to tag Jones instead of Barkley is huge.

With Jones allegedly A deal for Jones and Barkley asking for an absurd $40 million a year would eat up almost all of the Giants’ cap spot this offseason. Though tagging Jones would cost the Giants $32.4 million, losing the ability to tag Barkley would also hurt, as Russini said their long-term talks with the back have stalled.

Aaron Rodgers is ready to join Jets

PFN Senior Analyst Trey Wingo tweeted that the New York Jets and Aaron Rodgers were allowed to discuss his willingness to play for the franchise.

Jimmy Garoppolo to Houston?

The quarterback carousel will produce some interesting results this offseason. With Rodgers looking likely to end up in New York, Derek Carr already in New Orleans and Jones likely back with the Giants, the focus remains on Lamar Jackson and Jimmy Garoppolo.

According to CBS Sports insider Jonathan Jones, Garoppolo could reunite with former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans in Houston. The Texans’ new head coach could sign Garoppolo as a bridge QB to pair with anyone the team picks in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Ryans hired the 49ers’ Bobby Slowik as his offensive coordinator, who worked with Garoppolo.

Lamar Jackson Likely to Receive Franchise Tag

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta and Jackson have continued to work toward a long-term extension, but the teams “remain separate” as the tag deadline approaches Tuesday. An exclusive tag would make a tag-and-trade possible, but things get incredibly interesting when the team uses the non-exclusive tag.

A non-exclusive tag allows another team to offer Jackson a contract. The Ravens would have a chance to honor that deal and give Jackson the same contract, or turn Jackson down for two first-round picks and lose. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that the team is considering that route.

Considering the Browns traded three first-round picks and handed Deshaun Watson a fully guaranteed deal despite being shrouded in sexual assault allegations, the Ravens would make an historic mistake to trade Jackson for just two first-round picks.
