  • 2020 NFL Free Agency QB Tracker: Updates on Tom Brady, Cam Newton and more


    The 2020 NFL free agency period hasn't been just about quarterbacks, what with big-name wide receivers, cornerbacks and edge rushers helping reset the market at multiple positions during the first two days of the league's legal tampering period.

    But let's face it: Quarterbacks are the most important, not to mention the juiciest, of them all.

    With that in mind, we've got a complete rundown of all the 2020 QB openings right here, at your disposal. Each and every team that entered the 2020 offseason with a need under center is featured below, complete with updated information about who they might be targeting and, most important of all, who's currently set to guide their offense in 2020:

    One thing's for sure: It was not going to be . The formeranchester United's victory over Manchester City onled out a title challenge this new season.Emery says the gap to champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool is too big to close.He warned: "We need to be realistic because the distance between City and Liverpool to us is a lot of points."We ne Sunday.United legend Giggs praised new arrivals Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo for playing pivotal roles in Man Utd's 10-game unbeaten run, along with the returning Scott McTominay. Giggs told Prem MVP was Tuesday, though Newton himself has suggested he was "forced" to do so. Either way, the 30-year-old is done in Carolina. New coach Matt Rhule early in free agency, and now the two sides are that should give the former starter a legitimate chance to become a "franchise" guy.

    Mitchell Trubisky has already been declared the team's Opening Day starter, but general manager Ryan Pace didn't shy away from pursuing veteran alternatives this offseason,  on both Teddy Bridgewater and Andy Dalton before landing  from the . Trubisky might still be considered the favorite to open the year under center, but it's honestly only a matter of time until Foles, a favorite of coach Matt Nagy and newh one senior player after returning to the club last week to speak with the squad.The Mirror says the outspoken Irishman was left unimpressed with a United star, who has not been named, for his approach to the talk. It is believed that the unnamed pl QBs coach John DeFilippo, gets the call.

    For one thing, it won't be Andy Dalton, who has for weeks, if not months. Once the 32-year-old former second-round draft pick is shipped out of town, Cincy can focus on the 2020 , where they'll have the No. 1 pick to get their guy (i.e. Joe Burrow).

    This was never really in question; it was more about whether Prescott would be locked up for 2020 or for much longer. As of now, the Pro Bowler is in 2020, but both sides remain in talks for a long-term deal. The deadline for an extension this year is July 15. No matter what, No. 4 will be the Cowboys' QB.

    with the team through 2020, when he's due $21.3 million as the immediate successor to . But Indianapolis was rather fervent, it seems, in pursuing an upgrade, namely in its of Rivers, who has a noted history with coaches Frank Reich and Nick Sirianni and is now . At 38, the former starter can't be more than a short-term fix, but at least he'll help boost the Colts' playoff chances.

    Carr remains entrenched as the presumptive starter after a winter of praise from coach Jon Gruden. He also remains under contract through 2022. Mariota, however, Monday and, at just 26 years old, figures to have at least a chance of unseating Carr before Opening Day. General manager Mike Mayock has been a public fan of the former starter, so it wouldn't be a shock to see either guy under center in 2020.

    Los Angeles Chargers

    Since announcing that Philip Rivers would not return in 2020, the Chargers have hinted at the possibility of backup taking over under center, and that wouldn't be crazy considering coach Anthony Lynn's history with the former starter. In fact, since Tom Brady reportedly made his decision to sign elsewhere, L.A. has on Taylor as the No. 1.

    is through 2020, but it's at a relatively inexpensive rate. Plus, at 37, he's not the long-term answer. Miami hasn't been linked to many top-tier veterans (outside of some executives between Tom Brady and ex-Patriots coach Brian Flores), so with the No. 5 pick in the draft, their eyes will likely be glued to the rookie class.

    After 20 years in New England, Tom Brady is going elsewhere. With former heir apparent locked up with the , the Patriots could end up turning to 2019 fourth-round draft pick , especially with Teddy Bridgewater, an apparent apple of their eye, heading to Carolina. New England's other options probably lie in the draft or via trade, where guys like Andy Dalton, Cam Newton and Nick Foles could still pique their interest.

    The 41-year-old Brees was never going anywhere, but technically, he still hit free agency (or the legal tampering period) without a deal. Now, he's secured under a -- likely the last of his career.

    Coach Bruce Arians had long made it clear the team was open, if not looking, to upgrade on , the club's former No. 1 overall pick. And after reports suggesting they were to Florida, it's now all but a lock that No. 12 will be in Tampa, as wild as that would've sounded a year ago. Multiple reports indicate Brady and the Bucs are .

    Tennessee Titans

    For a while, it seemed as if the Titans might actually be the favorites to lure Tom Brady out of New England. Instead, they got ahead of the curve and locked up their 2019 revelation on -- big money for a guy with a relatively underwhelming career resume, but a logical move for a team that turned it on in large part because of Tannehill's strong finish.

  • Derek Carr wishes Marshawn Lynch would have returned to Raiders instead of Seahawks


    After losing running backs , C.J. Prosise and for the season, the turned to an old friend for help. Shortly before Christmas Eve, for the remainder of the season. Lynch helped the Seahawks win XLVIII back in 2014, and made four of his five career Pro Bowl appearances with Seattle.

    "Beast Mode" spent a total of six years in Seattle and rushed for 6,347 yards and 57 touchdowns. After announcing his retirement in 2016, Lynch ended up returning to the hometown for the 2017 and 2018 seasons before retiring again. While Lynch spent the majority of his career with the Seahawks, his former quarterback with the Raiders is upset that Lynch didn't return to Oakland.

    "I wish it was with us," said this week, . "I miss that guy, but it's good to see him back. ... I love Marshawn."

    Lynch played in 21 games with the Raiders anhas joined League One side Rotherham on a two-year contract.Olosunde spent the past three years at United, but failed to make a first-team appearance for the club and was recently released.Philadelphia-born Olosunde, 21, made his international debut d rushed for 1,267 yards and 10 touchdowns. He played in just six games last year due to a groin injury that landed him on injured reserve. The Raiders could have possibly used Lynch, as star running back has missed two out of the last three games due to a shoulder injury. Jacobs also on Christmas, which indicated he underwent a surgical procedure on his leg. 

    Believe it or not, , but they need four things to happen on Sunday: them to beat the , the ' backups to beat the , the to win against the , and the to take down the . It's definitely a wild scenario, but possible nonetheless. 

    The Seahawks are in a much better spot at 11-4, but they have an important matchup against the on Sunday. Seattle trails San Francisco by one game, and are also competing with the andames Rodriguez.The Colombian attacking midfielder, whose two year loan at Bayern Munich runs out at the end of this season, is available.His club Real Madrid are looking to cash in on him, which means a Premier League move is a possibility.Per Marca, the  for the top two playoff spots in the NFC. 

    Lynch will have his work cut out for him in his first game back, but Carr knows his former teammate is capable of helping the Seahawks immediately. 

    "He's been working really hard to get ready, just in case," said Carr. I didn't know he was going to come back and play football, talking to him. But he's back, and that's a good thing for footbalster United manager was reportedly keen on replacing Bruno Genesio at the Ligue 1 club.But Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed on Saturday that former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Sylvinho will take on the role, with Juninho Pernambunco l."

  • Jon Gruden gives non-committal answer when asked about Derek Carr’s future with Raiders


    After spending the past 25 seasons in Oakland, the will be ditching the Bay Area later this year to head to Las Vegas and one of the biggest questions, as they get ready to make that move, is whether or not quarterback will be going with them. 

    Although Carr put up career numbers in 2019, it's still not clear if Raiders coach Jon Gruden is completely happy with the way that Carr has been running the team's offense. Gruden loves to see his quarterbacks throw the ball down the field, which is something that Carr rarely does. T move for RB Leipzig fullback Lukas Klostermann.BILD says Gunners scouts were in Italy over the past fortnight to follow Klostermann during the U21 Euros in action for Germany.It's suggested Arsenal see the youngster as a replacement for Hector Bellehe Raiders quarterback , which ranked dead last in the for any full-time starter. It also ranked below guys like , , and , who all averaged 5.1 air yards. 

    Carr also has 55 career losses, which is the second-most ever for any quarterback through their first six seasons. 

    Gruden was asked about Carr's future during his season-ending press conference this week, and although he had some good things to say, he didn't exactly come out and say that Carr would definitely be the team's starting quarterback next year. 

    "He ," Gruden said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "I'm not going to get into all the next-year scenarios. I'm just going to say that 7-9 is a step forward. We took a step forward. Statistically, I think we took a step forward. We've got to get a lot of guys healthy and we've got a lot of things to look at and evaluate before we start making any assumptions."

    One thing Gruden liked about the way Carr played was his abiljaer wants more risk taking from his players.United host Liverpool on Sunday."Of course, it's about results and [to] start winning games and start scoring goals, which is the main thing," insisted Solskjaer. “We need to create more chances because,ity to adapt to all the change that the Raider went through, but again, Gruden definitely didn't exactly offer a ringing endorsement for his quarterback by saying he would be with the team in Vegas next year. 

    "I think [Carr] played more of a role as a coach on the field with all the change that we had around him," Gruden said. "We had different receivers almost every week, different tight ends, different backs, different linemen. And I think his patience and ability to coach guys in practice and on the grass on game day was a real area of improvement."

    CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported in late December that  making a change at quarterback, although there's also a chance they'll stick with Carr. If Gruden's ready to move on, getting rid of Carr this offseason would make some sense, especially from a salary cap standpoint. Dumping Carr would only cost the team roughly $5 million in dead cap space, which is a bargain when you consider that it would have cost them $27.5 million in dead cap space to get rid of him in 2020, .

    The argument for keeping Carr is that his numbers went up this year, which was his second season in Gruden's system. In 2019, Carr finished with a career-high in completion percentage (70.4), passing yards (4,054) and yards per attempt (7.9).

    "I don't think it' away after an impressive past week.Lingard played a key role in United's wins against Tottenham and Manchester City."We can't be too overjoyed, we've still got the rest of the season to play for," he said."We take each game as it comes, we concentras a surprise that my second time being in the same system in year two has been both my best years," Carr said. "This by far, statistically, (was) career highs in almost everything except wins. So, we need to get more wins. And then I think everyone will chill out."

    For now, Carr is going to go into the offseason knowing that there are plenty of questions swirling around about his future. 

    "We'll see when that time comes," Carr said. "They're probably sick of us talking about it, just like I am. I had some good meetings with my coaches. And I'm looking forward to Las Vegas."

    If the Raiders do cut ties with Carr, the could make the quarterback's first few days in Vegas a little awkward, and that's because Carr . The good news for Carr is that if he needs to sell the house, it seems that there's already a buyer lined up.

  • Week 17 NFL picks, best bets from a legendary expert: This three-way football parlay pays out 6-1

The can lock up the No. 2 AFC seed, and a much-needed bye, versus lowly Miami. Consequently, New England is a 16.5-point favorite in the latest . Tennessee can clinch a wild-card berth with a win at Houston, which can only improve its playoff seed if Kansas City stumbles unexpectedly.

    This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his 17-year ESPN run.

  • Rashaad Penny’s breakout game could lead Seahawks to rethink offensive strategy moving forward


    While he's just 23-years-old, many had already written off running back as a bust. Even though he put up more rushing yards than anyone in Division I football during his senior year at San Diego State, he wasn't valued as an elite prospect. The Seahawks shocked everyone when they drafted him with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2018 .

    Penny rushed for just 419 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie seasned a long-term extension in July after scoring important goals in the Champions League semi-final and final last season.Origi had just one year remaining on his previous contract, but his instinct told him to remain at Anfield."There was a point wheon. It seemed to validate the doubters, as was clearly the better player and took over as the clear-cut No. 1 back. This season, Penny's role shrunk even more. Through the first 10 weeks, he rushed for just 167 yards and three touchdowns. During the Seahawks' 27-24 overtime win over the  in Week 10, Penny appeared to hit a low point. He was given just two rushes and fumbled one of those touches away. It certainly didn't look like Penny was developing into the dynamic playmaker that Seattle hoped he would be. 

    "," Penny said of his lack of playing time, via the team's official website. "But for me, it's just staying poised and just staying who I am, just being patient and waiting my turn, just trying to prove that I can play. But we've got a great running back in front of me in Chris, he shows it week in and week out, all last season and this season. So yeah, it gets kind of hard from me, but I just stay the guy I am, stay poised, just wait for my turn and my opportunities, then make the most out of them."

    Penny was given a huge opportunity on Sunday against the , and he definitely made the most of it. Carson was struggling, and head coach Pete Carroll inserted Penny into the game to see what he could do. Early in the fourth quarter, he broke loose for a 58-yard touchdown which extended the Seahawks' lead to double digits. 

    It was a play reminiscent of his time at San Diego State, when he was a big-play machine. In all, Penny put up a career-high 129 rushing yards on 14 carries and that big touchdown on Sunday. 

    "I have a feeling like that every week," Penny told reporters after the game. "You really don't know what can happen, it just happened this week. I'm just blessed and just grateful for the opportunity -- especially you know with what happened with the 49ers game, with the fumble. I'm thankful that the coaches gave me another opportunity just to go out and show what I can do."

    "I've just been doing things different than what I did last year. I know last year as the season was progressing I was gaining weight. This year, they told me to be more of a professional and practice harder than I practiced in the past. I just take everything as a game like now, when I'm in practice or walk throughs -- I'm more keyed in, locked in and it's just all about opportunities."

    Carroll was ecstatic that Penny had finally registered that elusive breakout performance, and he lauded his running back's work ethic after the win in Philadelphia.

    "They all want to play, they all deserve to play, sometimes it just doesn't happen, and it's how you deal with it," Carroll said. "What he did is he got better, he's trimmer, he's faster. Look how fast he looked today. He looked like he was shot out of a canon. And that's because of the hard work, he got a little bit of fresh legs benefit and he took full a admits the Roma midfielder is facing six months out after suffering an ACL injury.The 20-year-old ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament and damaged the meniscus during the 2-1 home defeat to Juventus on Sunday."Naturally, he wants to be there, butdvantage of it."

    Penny's teammates knew that despite his lack of production on Sundays, Penny was always the big-play weapon that he was in college. They had witnessed it in practice and were just waiting for the rest of the world to see it.

"We know he's a home-run hitter and he showed it. We were waiting, he was getting some runs -- getting four here, five there. We knew eventually he could break a big one and it happened."

    While it was just one game, Penny's big performance could foreshadow what the Seahawks plan on doing moving forward. This team was high on Penny coming out of college, and Sunday proved that he should have more of a role in the offense. While the Seahawks are 9-2, they are still in second place in the NFC West behind the 49ers. San Francisco is known for its rushing attack -- as , and have all been productive when given chances. Head coach Kyle Shanahan likes to rotate each one in and out of the lineup and use all three in different formations and distribute touches in unique ways. The Seahawks could elect to move forward like this, with Penny and Carson sharing touches in the backfield. 

    "We have all the confidence in the world in both of them," Wilson said. "Both of them are just great players. Really, to be a great running team, you've got to have two great running backs. … It's a great thing to have. You can alternate them, they can catch, they can run, they can pass protect, they can do all of the above."
