Field Level Media

The Atlanta Falcons reinstated defensive tackle Eddie Goldman from the reserve/retired list on Tuesday.

Goldman, 29, signed a one-year deal with Atlanta on July 6, 2022, but announced his retirement 13 days later.

Goldman has played six NFL seasons with the Chicago Bears (2015-19, 2021), sitting out 2020 amid the pandemic.

The 2015 second-round draft pick has 175 tackles, 13 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 81 games (73 starts).

Dante Fowler

The Dallas Cowboys will re-sign defensive end Dante Fowler to an undisclosed one-year deal on Tuesday, according to a person with knowledge of the signing. The former third overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015 finished with 27 tackles (22 solo), six sacks, seven tackles for loss, nine QB hits and two forced fumbles in 17 regular season games (no starts) in his first year in Big D in 2022. The 28-year-old played only 329 defensive snaps as a rotation pass-rusher for Dallas next to DeMarcus Lawrence, Dorance Armstrong and Micah Parsons. Expect Fowler to be used in a similar fashion on defense in 2023, which will make him a boom/bust fantasy asset in IDP leagues.

Calais Campbell

The Atlanta Falcons are planning to host veteran free-agent defensive lineman Calais Campbell on a free-agent visit this week, according to sources. Campbell was recently released by the Baltimore Ravens, who have kept the door open for a potential return. The 15-year veteran had 65 solo tackles, 11 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, 36 QB hits, nine passes defensed, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in 41 games (40 starts) in the last three seasons for the Ravens. The 36-year-old six-time Pro Bowler is no longer in the prime of his career and will probably only play one more season in the NFL, but he'll bring valuable experience to the defensive line with whichever organization he joins in 2023.

Samaje Perine Mar 21 4:30pm ET
Samaje Perine

The Athletic's Nick Kosmider writes that there's a good chance the Denver Broncos add a running back in this year's draft in order to stockpile offensive talent and provide insurance against a delayed return for Javonte Williams (knee). Denver has intriguing young talent with Tyreik McAllister, Damarea Crockett and Tyler Badie, while free-agent addition Samaje Perine has some experience as a lead back. If Williams isn't ready in Week 1, Perine could be the Broncos' lead back. Williams was a popular pick to break out in 2022, but a serious knee injury involving multiple torn ligaments set him back and will make him a bit of a risky selection in fall fantasy drafts in 2023. Perine will be a nice handcuff pick for Williams' managers in deeper leagues.

Ronald Jones II

The Dallas Cowboys agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with free-agent running back Ronald Jones on Tuesday after he visited with the team on Monday, according to a source. Jones spent last year with the Kansas City Chiefs after a four-year run with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His best year came in 2020, when he had 192 carries for 978 yards and seven touchdowns for the Bucs. The 25-year-old was buried on the Chiefs' depth chart in 2022 and played in only six regular season games (zero starts), carrying the ball 17 times for 70 yards and one touchdown. Jones will have a chance for a much bigger role in 2023 behind Tony Pollard after Dallas let cut Ezekiel Elliott, but Jones' value will also depend on who the Cowboys add at the position through the draft next month.

Lamar Jackson

Baltimore Ravens franchise-tagged quarterback Lamar Jackson is free to speak with other teams, and a representative for Jackson has contacted more than one team in an effort to spark negotiations aimed at a possible offer sheet, according to multiple sources. Jackson reportedly doesn't want a fully guaranteed contract, although he would still like up to $200 million or more in guarantees. One source said Jackson's representative is telling other teams that he is ready to move on from the Ravens. There haven't been any teams that have publicly stated their interest in signing Jackson away from Baltimore, and if a team chooses to do so, they'll have to give up two first-round picks.

Austin Ekeler Mar 21 4:10pm ET
Austin Ekeler

The Los Angeles Chargers gave running back Austin Ekeler permission to seek a trade last week after contract-extension talks between the two sides went nowhere. "I think it's really important to put it out there that it's not like, 'Oh, I hate the Chargers and I need to get out of this organization, and I need to leave,'" Ekeler said. "That couldn't be further from the truth. I would like to stay if it was under the right circumstances." Ekeler signed a four-year, $24.5 million contract in 2020, and he's generated 3,195 scrimmage yards in the last two seasons in LA. He's due $6.25 million in base salary in 2023 and doesn't have any guarantees left. There's no timeline on when Ekeler might be traded, but the draft next month could be a soft deadline. The 27-year-old's $6.13 million average per year on his deal ranks 14th among RBs, yet he's a top-five fantasy back.

Tony Pollard Mar 21 3:13pm ET
Tony Pollard

Dynasty | The Dallas Cowboys have signed running back Ronald Jones. Dynasty Analysis: Jones will get a one-year deal to join the Cowboys. Once a highly coveted dynasty running back, RoJo could just never get his career on track and eventually flamed out in Tampa Bay. Jones was a backup in Kansas City last season, but was routinely inactive on game days and finished the year with just 70 rushing yards on 17 carries. He would likely form some kind of committee with Malik Davis and Rico Dowdle should Tony Pollard miss time. At this point, he's a tough roster stash in dynasty leagues and remains unranked.

Isaiah McKenzie

Dynasty | The Colts have signed wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie. Dynasty Analysis: After being released by the Bills, McKenzie wasted no time in finding a new home. It's crazy to think McKenzie has been in the league for six years, but he has been after spending time with both the Broncos and Bills. He had a bit of a mini-breakout last year as he posted 42 catches for 423 receiving yards and four scores, mostly manning the slot. He should do the same for a Colts team that isn't exactly flush with talent. McKenzie is currently our WR93 and this move should push his value up a bit.

Jonathan Bullard

The Minnesota Vikings agreed to re-sign defensive end Jonathan Bullard to an undisclosed deal on Tuesday, according to a source. Bullard will return to Minnesota after producing 23 tackles (17 solo) and five tackles for loss in 12 games (seven starts) in 2022 in his first season with the team. The 29-year-old should be expected to continue serving in a depth role on the Vikings' defensive line in 2023, which makes him avoidable in IDP leagues. In his seven NFL seasons for the Vikings, Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons, Bullard has posted 136 tackles (87 solo), 3.5 sacks, 18 tackles for loss, 16 QB hits, five passes defensed and a forced fumble in 82 games (22 starts).

Miles Sanders Mar 21 1:40pm ET
Miles Sanders

The Carolina Panthers and head coach Frank Reich view running back Miles Sanders as a three-down back who can do it all. It's why the Panthers let D'Onta Foreman walk in free agency before signing Sanders to a four-year, $25.4 million deal last week. Carolina still has Chuba Hubbard in their backfield, but as of right now, it looks as though they plan to give Sanders as much work as he can handle. The 25-year-old was a disaster for fantasy managers in 2021, but he bounced back with his first 1,000-yard rushing season and 11 touchdowns on a career-high 259 carries in 17 regular season games (15 starts) for the Eagles last year, adding 20 receptions for 78 yards. Sanders' ultimate fantasy upside could hinge on how well Carolina's rookie quarterback fares, but it's a good sign that he'll be heavily involved on all three downs in his new home.

Bradley Chubb

The Miami Dolphins are re-signing linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel to an undisclosed one-year deal on Tuesday. Van Ginkel has started 31 of the 56 games he's played in for the Dolphins over the last four years, and he decided to return to South Beach after taking a free-agent visit with the division-rival New England Patriots last week. He also had talks with the Las Vegas Raiders. A fifth-rounder in 2019, Van Ginkel lost his starting outside linebacker role after the Dolphins acquired Bradley Chubb from the Denver Broncos last year, but he still contributed on defense and finished with 47 tackles, one interception and half a sack. The 27-year-old has 181 tackles (23 for loss), 11 sacks, one interception and four forced fumbles in his NFL career, and he will provide valuable linebacker depth for Miami.

Isaiah McKenzie

Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie is signing an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, according to his agents. McKenzie was expected to have a much bigger year than he did with Buffalo in 2022 after veteran slot man Cole Beasley moved on. The 27-year-old finished last year with 42 catches on 65 targets for 423 yards and four touchdowns, and he added nine carries for 55 yards and an additional score on the ground in 15 regular season games (eight starts). Indy might be a nice landing spot for him on the inside, with Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce on the outside. As of right now, Gardner Minshew is the team's starting quarterback, but the Colts could also draft a signal-caller of the future in April.

Bijan Robinson Mar 21 1:20pm ET
Bijan Robinson

University of Texas running back Bijan Robinson is taking a pre-draft visit to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, according to a source. Robinson to the Eagles in this year's draft makes plenty of sense, although general manager Howie Roseman has never taken a running back in the first round of a draft. The 21-year-old is easily the No. 1 RB prospect in this year's class, and he's fully expected to come off the board in the first round. If the Eagles like him that much, Roseman will have to take his first RB in the first round. Philly let Miles Sanders walk in free agency, but they re-signed Boston Scott and also added Rashaad Penny. However, given Penny's extensive injury history, it would make sense for the Eagles to add some more insurance at the position.

DeAndre Hopkins Mar 21 1:10pm ET
DeAndre Hopkins

Trade talks surrounding Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins are ramping up this week among interested teams, according to sources. Similar to Brandin Cooks, a trade would likely mean an altered contract for Hopkins. For teams looking to upgrade at the receiver position before April's draft, Hopkins is easily the top target out there, and it sounds like something could go down sooner than later. The 30-year-old has played in only 19 games the last two years combined due to injuries and suspension, but prior to 2021 he had six 1,000-yard seasons in the NFL. He averaged 79.7 yards per game and 10.7 targets with three touchdowns in nine games played in 2022, and a move out of the desert could ignite his fantasy value, especially with quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) not expected to be ready for Week 1 in 2023.

Free-agent linebacker Nicholas Morrow agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, according to a source. In his lone season with the Chicago Bears in 2022, Morrow had a career-best 116 tackles (83 solo), 11 tackles for loss and an interception in 17 starts. The 27-year-old is a nice addition to the middle of the Eagles defense after they already lost some key defenders in free agency last week. While Morrow won't be a popular player in IDP fantasy drafts, he should at least be worth looking at as a streaming option again in 2023. In his five NFL seasons with the Bears and Las Vegas Raiders, Morrow has 370 tackles (268 solo), four sacks, 31 tackles for loss, 15 QB hits, three interceptions, 22 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in 79 games (46 starts).

Lamar Jackson Mar 20 11:30pm ET
Lamar Jackson

The Indianapolis Colts reportedly aren't one of the teams that don't have any interest in negotiating with Baltimore Ravens franchise-tagged quarterback Lamar Jackson. Because he's on the non-exclusive franchise tag, he can negotiate a contract with other teams. The 26-year-old could be a good fit for the Colts, who haven't had a QB start back-to-back season openers since Andrew Luck in 2015-16. Indy hasn't ruled out having discussions with Jackson, who is reportedly looking for a fully guaranteed deal as his own agent. Team sources have expressed skepticism about the Colts actually pursuing Jackson. In order to land Jackson and sign him to a long-term deal, the Colts would have to do some salary cap maneuvering. They just signed Gardner Minshew last weekend, but Jackson would become the clear starter if the Colts were able to pry him away from Baltimore.

Free-agent cornerback Mike Hughes finalized an undisclosed two-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, according to a source. The former first-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2018 is now heading to the NFC South after spending the 2022 campaign playing for the Detroit Lions. In 16 games (six starts) last year, he had a career-high 51 tackles (35 solo) and a pass defensed. The 26-year-old will offer the Falcons some valuable versatility as a defensive back that has experience both on the outside and inside in the slot. In his five NFL seasons to this point, Hughes has recorded 178 tackles (142 solo), five tackles for loss, three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 20 passes defensed, seven forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries (one for a TD) in 57 games (18 starts).

Dynasty | The Buffalo Bills have signed former New England running back Damien Harris. Dynasty Analysis: Just when folks thought it was going to be James Cook SZN with Devin Singletary signing in Houston, this happens just hours later. Harris is going to provide the Bills with a solid power back, making Cook far from a full-time player moving forward. In all truthfulness, this looks like a signing that is better in reality than it is in dynasty. Harris is going to have some goal-line chances, but Josh Allen also take a bulk of those away from the ball carriers. Harris is currently our RB34 and it's hard to see that changing too dramatically now that he's paired with Cook.

The 27-year-old has spent all five of his professional seasons with the Washington Commanders. He has recorded 57 catches for 804 yards and three touchdowns in 55 games. He's expected to compete for a reserve role behind Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, and Hunter Renfrow.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Keelan Cole has re-signed with the organization. The two sides have agreed to a one-year deal for the upcoming season. The 29-year-old mainly played on special teams last season, but also contributed 10 receptions for 141 yards and one touchdown in 14 games. Cole produced a 600-yard season two years ago, so he's capable of being a legitimate contributor. However, it's uncertain if the Raiders plan on using Cole in their passing attack or keeping him on special teams.
