    Chase McLaughlin May 11 10:00pm ET

    The Cleveland Browns claimed kicker Chase McLaughlin off waivers from the New York Jets on Tuesday. Kicker Matt McCrane was released in a corresponding move. McLaughlin made four of his five field-goal kicks last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Jets. The 25-year-old will join Cody Parkey on the kicking depth chart in Cleveland and will be expected to compete with Parkey for the starting gig to begin the season. Parkey wasn't all that bad last season, but he did miss extra points in three of the team's final four regular season games and wasn't exactly clutch. So if McLaughlin comes into training camp and impresses, he could win the job over Parkey. This is a situation you'll want to avoid in fantasy.

    Antwaun Woods May 11 9:50pm ET

    Former Dallas Cowboys starting defensive lineman Antwaun Woods signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. In a corresponding move, the Colts waived linebacker Anthony Butler. Woods was instrumental in the Cowboys defensive resurgence in the middle of last season when he moved into the starting lineup, but Dallas also added six defensive linemen since March. He should represent valuable defensive line depth for Indianapolis at the one-technique, nose tackle spot behind starter Grover Stewart. Woods is more of a run-stuffer than pass-rusher, and he'll be competing with the likes of Taylor Stallworth, Andrew Brown and Chris Williams for a roster spot.

    Allen Robinson May 11 2:53pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson has posted a league-high 47 contested catches since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

    Fantasy Spin: Some of this production is a byproduct of having Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles as his quarterbacks over that span, but there's also no question Robinson's game involves him using his 6-foot-3, 210-pound frame and wide catch radius to make plays. With Andy Dalton or Justin Fields expected to serve as his quarterback in 2021 and perhaps beyond, Robinson should have no problem paying off as a high-end WR2 investment with WR1 upside.

    Matt Ryan May 11 1:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach Charles London has been a staunch supporter of quarterback Matt Ryan since he joined the team. "We studied every drop-back pass, every play-action pass, everything that Matt did this past year," said London. "We thought as a staff that he was still performing at a high level. He could still do everything that was needed to do to run this offense. I look forward to working with him. He has a very unique skill-set." The Falcons committed to the 36-year-old when they restructured his deal and then didn't select a QB in the draft. On top of that, they gave him a new tight end with the fourth overall pick in Kyle Pitts. Ryan will need better protection up front from the offensive line, but he has all the weapons to be a very strong QB1 again in 2021.

    Ito Smith May 11 1:00pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons running backs coach Desmond Kitchings said that the team will have an open competition at running back after they did not add to the position through the most recent NFL draft. They finished 27th in rushing in 2020 and let Todd Gurley II, Brian Hill and Ito Smith -- their top three backs -- walk out the door. Mike Davis signed a two-year, $5.5 million deal with Atlanta in free agency after totaling 1,000 yards from scrimmage last season in Carolina. He plays the game physical and has also developed into a solid pass-catcher, so there's opportunity for him to have a feature-back role in 2021. The Falcons are also counting on former wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to play some running back. He had a career-high 64 carries for 232 yards and a score last year with Chicago. It sounds as though the Falcons have plans to use Patterson as more than just a gadget player, but he may not have much fantasy appeal unless Davis misses time with an injury. The Falcons also retained Qadree Ollison, who played just 13 snaps in 2020.

    Cameron McGrone May 11 1:00pm ET

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said after this year's NFL draft that their fifth-rounder, linebacker Cameron McGrone (knee), might miss his entire rookie season after tearing his ACL last November. "We're not really sure what the expectation of availability is for him, but we're prepared certainly to not have him available this year," Belichick said. "There are no false expectations here. He should have a good recovery and be a good player; we'll just have to see what the timing is on that." In a best-case scenario, McGrone would eventually replace Dont'a Hightower in the middle of New England's defense. McGrone is currently rehabbing his ACL injury but also tore his right ACL in high school. His lack of game action at Michigan makes him extremely risky, but Belichick and the Pats are comfortable with being patient to see if he pans out.

    Micah Parsons May 11 12:40pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will bring some scheme changes in his new gig after being fired by the Atlanta Falcons after an 0-5 start to the 2020 season. He has long been associated with the 4-3, Cover 3 style of defense that made him famous with the Seattle Seahawks, and it's also very similar to the scheme Rod Marinelli and Kris Richard ran for two years in Dallas. A lot of those elements will remain with Quinn, but he plans on implementing new looks as well. Quinn said the Cowboys base look would resemble more of a 3-4. Dallas spent plenty of draft capital on the defensive side of the ball in this year's draft, and first-round linebacker Micah Parsons (12th overall) should team well with DeMarcus Lawrence, Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith. Quinn's defenses in Atlanta never lived up to expectations, and while they have the talent in Dallas, time will tell whether Quinn's new tweaks will mesh well with the team's current personnel.

    Aaron Rodgers May 11 10:03am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' side has engaged in contract discussions with the Packers to a degree, and the Packers have made a significant long-term offer.

    Fantasy Spin: Not much to see here. Rodgers is about the No.3 to No. 5 QB to target in fantasy.

    Chad Kelly May 10 11:10pm ET

    The Green Bay Packers will bring in quarterbacks Chad Kelly and Kurt Benkert to this weekend's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Benkert went undrafted out of Virginia and spent the last three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, mainly on the practice squad. Kelly, the nephew of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, was taken with the final pick of the 2017 draft by the Denver Broncos, but he washed out of Denver after two seasons. He's been with the Indianapolis Colts the last two years but was released. Both players could become camp arms with upside further down the depth chart if they sign in Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love, last year's first-round pick, are the only signal-callers currently on the roster.

    Davis Mills May 10 11:10pm ET

    Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio said there is no pressure for rookie quarterback Davis Mills to perform in a hurry despite the turmoil surrounding Deshaun Watson and more than 20 lawsuits filed against him. "No different than any other player," Caserio said of the timeline of bringing along the first-year signal-caller. "Bring him in, teach him our system, teach him our terminology, take it one step at a time." It's unclear what will happen with Watson as the legal proceedings play out, but the Texans weren't looking to trade him, despite his public request, before his legal issues arose. Since then, trade chatter surrounding Watson has quieted down. The three-time Pro Bowler could remain with the Texans in 2021, but wherever he's playing, he could be facing a lengthy suspension as well.

    Mike Davis May 10 7:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RBs Mike Davis, Javian Hawkins, Caleb Huntley and Qadree Ollison are all expected to compete for touches in the backfield in 2021, according to comments made by running backs coach Desmond Kitchings. According to Tori McElhaney of The Athletic, Kitchens noted how competitive the running back group will be and that 'the door is wide open' for anyone to take over.

    Fantasy Spin: Davis should be considered the frontrunner, but the truth of the matter is none of the backs have any proven much of anything in the NFL. Hawkins and Huntley are undrafted rookie free agents, while Ollison has totaled 24 touches across two seasons. Davis is coming off a career year in which he compiled 224 touches with the Carolina Panthers, but it was obvious he wore down as the season came to a close. Atlanta remains a likely candidate to sign a veteran free-agent runner. Short of that, expect Davis to push for 200-plus touches and Hawkins to be the primary change-of-pace back.

    Detroit Lions TE Josh Hill was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Monday, May 10.

    Tim Tebow May 10 4:28pm ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are planning to sign quarterback-turned-tight-end Tim Tebow to an undisclosed one-year deal, and it could become official in the next week or so. Tebow will have a chance to make the team and reunite with head coach Urban Meyer, who was his mentor and college head coach at the University of Florida. The 33-year-old gave up his baseball career with the New York Mets and is now giving it another go on the gridiron at a different position. The Jaguars have long been looking for a tight end, but that's unlikely to be Tebow. He last played in the NFL with the New York Jets in 2012. If Tebow were to win a roster spot out of training camp, he'd be competing with Chris Manhertz, James O'Shaughnessy and rookie Luke Farrell for playing time.

    Nate Orchard May 10 4:13pm ET

    Tennessee Titans TE Parker Hesse, LB Matthew Orzech and LB Nate Orchard were waived Monday, May 10.

    Curtis Samuel May 10 2:10pm ET

    The Washington Football Team signed wide receiver Curtis Samuel to a three-year deal this offseason, reuniting him with head coach Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner from their time together with the Carolina Panthers. Rivera drafted Samuel in 2017, and Turner was the quarterbacks coach in Carolina from 2018-2019. "You can do a lot of different things with him," Turner said. "He's only 24 years old, I think he's just scratching the surface on what he's capable of." Samuel broke out in 2020, catching a career-high 77 passes for 851 yards and three touchdowns, adding 200 rushing yards and two more TDs. Samuel will be the No. 2 behind Terry McLaurin and will be an ideal fit for this offense. He'll be a low-end WR2 with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing him passes.

    Christian Covington May 10 2:00pm ET

    The Los Angeles Chargers signed free-agent defensive tackle Christian Covington to an undisclosed deal on Monday, according to his agent. Covington was a sixth-round pick by the Houston Texans out of Rice in 2015. He's also spent time with the Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals in his six NFL seasons. Covington started 14 of the 16 games he played in for the Bengals last season and was on the field for 53 percent of the team's defensive snaps. The 27-year-old had 39 tackles (14 solo) and one QB hit. In his NFL career, Covington has 132 tackles (15 for loss), 20 QB hits, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and 8.5 sacks in 82 games (29 starts).

    Tamba Hali May 10 2:00pm ET

    The Kansas City Chiefs signed former linebacker Tamba Hali to a one-day contract on Monday so he can officially retire with the organization. The six-time Pro Bowler played with the Chiefs for his entire 12-year career. The 37-year-old last played in the NFL in 2017, but he made the Pro Bowl with Kansas City in five straight seasons from 2011 to 2015. He was the 20th overall pick in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft and finished his illustrious career with 596 tackles (105 for loss), 159 QB hits, two interceptions (one for a touchdown), 16 passes defensed, 33 forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries (one for a TD) and 89.5 sacks in 177 regular season games (157 starts).
