NFL Free Agent Rumors



NFL Rumors NFL Free Agency Rumors NFL Team Draft Rumors NFL Fantasy Rumors



I've been posting NFL Free Agent Rumors and NFL Draft Rumors daily on each page. These are listed per team, so click on each link if you're interested in seeing all of the rumors from your favorite team.

However, I received a suggestion to post all of the latest rumors in a daily format for those interested in multiple teams. That's what I've done on this new NFL Rumors page. Follow @walterfootball for NFL Rumors Updates.



Baltimore Ravens:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/18: It's believed that the Ravens could have interest in Ryan Mathews. - Jeff Zrebiec, Baltimore Sun
Mathews hasn't officially been released yet, but it's only a matter of time with LeGarrette Blount now on the roster. With Kenneth Dixon serving a four-game suspension, the Ravens would need someone to go along with Danny Woodhead in the backfield. -Walter


5/11: Victor Cruz will be visiting the Jaguars, and there is mutual interest with the Ravens. - Josina Anderson and Art Stapleton, ESPN / USA Today
Baltimore makes a ton of sense for Cruz, as the team whiffed on wideouts in the 2017 NFL Draft. Not counting Josh Gordon, Cruz is the No. 2 available player in the NFL Free Agent Wide Receiver Rankings. -Walter


5/10: The Ravens could still address their receiver need via trade. - Jeff Zrebiec, Baltimore Sun
Zrebiec mentioned Sammy Watkins as a possible choice, but wrote that Jordan Matthews is a more realistic option. -Walter




Buffalo Bills:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/30: Gary Barnidge revealed that he has spoken to the Broncos and Jaguars, and he has visited the Bills. -
All three teams have a big need at tight end. Of the three, the Broncos are the only ones with realistic playoff expectations, so Barnidge should aim to go to Denver. Barnidge is the top-available player, by far, in the NFL Free Agent Tight End Rankings. -Walter


5/22: Gerald Hodges is visiting the Bills and Giants. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
Hodges is the top-rated player in the NFL Free Agent Inside Linebacker Rankings, and both teams could use his services. -Walter


5/6: Tre Boston revealed that he is visiting the Steelers, Chargers and Bills. -
Boston makes the most sense for the Chargers, who passed on Malik Hooker. Boston is 18th in the NFL Free Agent Rankings. -Walter




Chicago Bears:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/12: Victor Cruz will visit the Bears on Monday. - Art Stapleton, USA Today
Cruz will also be visiting the Ravens and Jaguars. The Bears need a replacement for the recently released Eddie Royal. While Cruz is a shell of his former self, he's much better than Royal; Cruz is 20th, while Royal is 43rd in the NFL Free Agent Wide Receiver Rankings. -Walter








Cleveland Browns:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/11: Josh Gordon's reinstatement bid has been denied. - Tom Pelissero, USA Today
This is not a surprise; to quote Matvei, "Roger Goodell runs the NFL like a Saudi dictator." There are players who have committed far worse crimes than Gordon playing right now, and any sane man would've reinstated him already. It's a shame, as Gordon was slotted in the top 40 of the Top 100 NFL Free Agent Rankings. -Walter




Denver Broncos:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/30: Gary Barnidge revealed that he has spoken to the Broncos and Jaguars, and he has visited the Bills. -
All three teams have a big need at tight end. Of the three, the Broncos are the only ones with realistic playoff expectations, so Barnidge should aim to go to Denver. Barnidge is the top-available player, by far, in the NFL Free Agent Tight End Rankings. -Walter




Jacksonville Jaguars:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/30: Gary Barnidge revealed that he has spoken to the Broncos and Jaguars, and he has visited the Bills. -
All three teams have a big need at tight end. Of the three, the Broncos are the only ones with realistic playoff expectations, so Barnidge should aim to go to Denver. Barnidge is the top-available player, by far, in the NFL Free Agent Tight End Rankings. -Walter


5/22: Orlando Franklin is visiting the Jaguars. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
Jacksonville, of course, can use all the blocking help it can get. Franklin bombed in San Diego, but he's talented enough to rebound. Franklin is the top player available in the NFL Free Agent Guard Rankings. -Walter


5/11: Victor Cruz will be visiting the Jaguars, and there is mutual interest with the Ravens. - Josina Anderson and Art Stapleton, ESPN / USA Today
Baltimore makes a ton of sense for Cruz, as the team whiffed on wideouts in the 2017 NFL Draft. Not counting Josh Gordon, Cruz is the No. 2 available player in the NFL Free Agent Wide Receiver Rankings. -Walter








Los Angeles Chargers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/6: Tre Boston revealed that he is visiting the Steelers, Chargers and Bills. -
Boston makes the most sense for the Chargers, who passed on Malik Hooker. Boston is 18th in the NFL Free Agent Rankings. -Walter




New England Patriots:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/10: Christine Michael visited the Patriots. - Field Yates, ESPN
Michael has good talent, but can't put things together mentally. He's the fifth-best-available player in the NFL Free Agent Running Back Rankings. -Walter




New Orleans Saints:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/10: The Eagles and Saints are discussing a trade. - Kyle Scott, Crossing Broad
This trade is presumably Mark Ingram for Jason Kelce. The Eagles whiffed on an every-down runner in the draft to replace Ryan Mathews, so Ingram would be a nice solution. Kelce, meanwhile, would give the Saints needed insurance in the wake of the Max Unger injury. Ingram is a better player than Kelce, so this move would favor the Eagles more, but Ingram has fallen out of favor in New Orleans, so I understand why the Saints would do this. If anything happens, check out my NFL Trade Grades page for grades and a poll. -Walter








New York Giants:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/22: Gerald Hodges is visiting the Bills and Giants. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
Hodges is the top-rated player in the NFL Free Agent Inside Linebacker Rankings, and both teams could use his services. -Walter




New York Jets:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/10: Gerald Hodges visited the Jets. - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
The Jets tried to sign Dont'a Hightower in free agency, but failed. Hodges would be a nice fallback option. Hodges is the best-available player in the NFL Free Agent Inside Linebacker Rankings. -Walter




Philadelphia Eagles:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/10: The Eagles and Saints are discussing a trade. - Kyle Scott, Crossing Broad
This trade is presumably Mark Ingram for Jason Kelce. The Eagles whiffed on an every-down runner in the draft to replace Ryan Mathews, so Ingram would be a nice solution. Kelce, meanwhile, would give the Saints needed insurance in the wake of the Max Unger injury. Ingram is a better player than Kelce, so this move would favor the Eagles more, but Ingram has fallen out of favor in New Orleans, so I understand why the Saints would do this. If anything happens, check out my NFL Trade Grades page for grades and a poll. -Walter


5/6: The Eagles are still attempting to trade Mychal Kendricks. - Jimmy Kempski, Philly Voice
Kendricks is a poor fit for the Eagles' 4-3 defense. He'd be better in a 3-4, and teams like the Packers and Steelers could use him. -Walter






Pittsburgh Steelers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/6: Tre Boston revealed that he is visiting the Steelers, Chargers and Bills. -
Boston makes the most sense for the Chargers, who passed on Malik Hooker. Boston is 18th in the NFL Free Agent Rankings. -Walter




Seattle Seahawks:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/24: The Seahawks are not expected to immediately sign Colin Kaepernick. - Bob Condotta, Seattle Times
Kaepernick must not have performed well during Wednesday's tryout, which can't be a surprise, given that he's been one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL over the past couple of seasons. -Walter


5/24: The Seahawks are working out Colin Kaepernick today. - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Kaepernick wasn't really available prior to May 9 because of compensatory-pick implications, so he's generating interest now. The Seahawks need a better No. 2 signal-caller, and Kaepernick fits as the top available player in the NFL Free Agent Quarterback Rankings, just barely edging out Robert Griffin. -Walter


5/15: The Seahawks have legitimate interest in Colin Kaepernick. - Michael Silver, NFL Network
There have been conspiracy theories about why Kaepernick hasn't been signed yet. While some teams don't want to deal with distractions, the real reason Kaepernick hasn't signed is because teams would've had to surrender a compensatory pick had they added him prior to May 9. Now that the Seahawks won't have to do so, they could bring him in as a viable backup behind Russell Wilson. Kaepernick was sixth in the NFL Free Agent Quarterback Rankings. -Walter
