1.Michael Thomas: Far apart in contract talks (RotoWire) Thomas and the Saints are still far apart in extension negotiations, Jeff Duncan of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Analysis: Thomas reportedly wants $22 million per season, while the Saints are angling for around $18 million, which would put him close to Odell Beckham Jr. and a little ahead of Antonio Brown. The 25-year-old wideout currently is traveling in Europe, and he hasn't made any noise about a potential holdout as he prepares for the final season of his rookie contract. It may be hard to settle on a price when both sides know that A.J. Green, Julio Jones and Amari Cooper also are in the process of discussing extension... (More)3 days
2.Michael Thomas seeking $22M, Saints at $... (Rotoworld) Updating a previous New Orleans Times-Picayune report, Michael Thomas is seeking $22 million per year. Analysis: The Saints are reportedly at $18 million annually. A contract should be coming eventually, but "nothing is imminent" with about four million separating the two sides. There are a few receivers waiting on new deals, so there may be a waiting game to see where the market settles for elite receivers. Thomas has the most receptions (321) since 2016, his first year in the league.4 days
3.Tyler Lockett 'ready for whatever' in 20... (Rotoworld) Tyler Lockett says he's "ready for whatever" in 2019. Analysis: "I’ve been playing in the slot every now and then when we put Doug (Baldwin) on the outside," Lockett said during OTAs. "So for me it’s all about just being able to further my game wherever I’m at. Wherever I’m at, it’s all about trying to get open or get other people open." OC Brian Schottenheimer has already pledged to "move around" Lockett in 2019. Lockett actually played half his snaps in the slot last season, so it would not be a huge change. Wherever he's playing, it will be... (More)4 days
4.Switzer expected to make roster over Rog... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Mark Kaboly expects Ryan Switzer to make the Steelers' 53-man roster over Eli Rogers. Analysis: Switzer was ineffective as the Steelers' No. 3/4 wideout last season, but Rogers missed most of the year as he recovered from a torn ACL. Rogers did catch seven passes in Week 17 with Antonio Brown on the sideline. This one will probably be settled in camp.4 days
5.Devontae Booker: Still getting first-team looks (RotoWire) Booker and Royce Freeman got most of the work with the starting offense while Phillip Lindsay focused on rehabbing a wrist injury this spring, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports. Analysis: Lacking Freeman's size and power or Lindsay's speed and elusiveness, Booker understandably seems to be the forgotten man in Denver's backfield, though his reliable hands could be enough to earn some work on passing downs. The Broncos ideally would like to see Lindsay seize those snaps, but his five drops on 47 targets contributed to a lackluster mark of just 5.1 YPT last season. To be fair, Booker wasn't much better at 5.4, dropping his career mark to ... (More)5 days
6.Dynasty | Josh Gordon working out with Brady (Dynasty League Football) Josh Gordon was seen working out with Tom Brady. Analysis: Gordon is unable to work out with the team while suspended, but this is a positive sign that another reinstatement could be upcoming. If reinstated, Gordan should slide right behind Edelman on the depth chart and would put a serious dampener on the fantasy outlook of first round rookie N'Keal Harry.5 days
7.NFL: 'No update' on Josh Gordon's status (Rotoworld) An NFL spokesman told The Athletic's Jeff Howe the league has "no update" on Josh Gordon's indefinite suspension. Analysis: The league could not even tell Howe if there was a "timeline for a review of the suspension." Gordon was back in the news Wednesday because he has been working out with Tom Brady. Presumably, the Pats would not have re-signed Gordon and Brady would not be working out with him if the team wasn't bullish on his odds of playing at some point in 2019. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported in February that there was a "chance" Gordon could be clea... (More)5 days
8.Josh Gordon: No update on suspension (RotoWire) An NFL spokesman said the league does not have an update on the status of Gordon's indefinite suspension, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports. Analysis: There's hope Gordon could be reinstated before training camp -- as reported in February -- but at present, it doesn't seem as if momentum is building in that direction. In any case, the receiver remains under contract with the Patriots in 2019 after signing his restricted free-agent tender in April. While it's not clear if Gordon took part in any spring practices since that point, he at least was seen catching passes from Tom Brady in a recent post on the quarterback's Instagram page, p...

9.Josh Gordon working out with Tom Brady (Rotoworld) Josh Gordon has been working out with Tom Brady this offseason. Analysis: It's the first update we've had on Gordon since April. Gordon wasn't able to practice with the team while suspended, but this adds fuel to rumblings he could be reinstated. The Patriots gave Gordon an original-round tender this offseason, a sign they think he has a chance to play. Gordon's return would be a hit to rookie N'Keal Harry's outlook.6 days
10.Report: Saints, Thomas not close on exte... (Rotoworld) The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports "nothing is imminent" in contract talks between the Saints and Michael Thomas. Analysis: The sides are "far apart" but hoping to get something done by training camp. Thomas wants to be the highest paid wideout in the league — a number the could change with Julio Jones, Amari Cooper, and A.J. Green due for extensions. It's likely going to take $20M-plus annually to lock Thomas up.6 days
11.Saints willing to make Thomas highest-pa... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Dianna Russini reports the Saints are willing to make contract-year WR Michael Thomas the highest-paid wideout in the game. Analysis: Per Russini, the sides "are progressing" in long-term talks. That echoes what GM Mickey Loomis himself said on Monday. Giving Thomas a mega contract when Drew Brees is a year-to-year proposition comes with an element of risk, but there's not much debate that it's what the Saints must do if they want to keep him. Thomas is fifth in receiving yards (3,787) and first in receptions (321) since entering the league in 2016.6 days
