Philip Rivers QB LAC (12) 3 hours ago
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports believes the Chargers have "moved on" from Rivers, per independent reporter Dov Kleiman.
The 38-year-old quarterback is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on the heels of a 5-11 season in which he tossed 20 interceptions. The Chargers otherwise have a fairly young roster that includes some premium talent, and they even have an insurance plan with fellow quarterback Tyrod Taylor under contract through 2020. Perhaps sensing the writing on the wall, Rivers recently relocated his family from San Diego to Florida. He already said he doesn't intend to retire, so the move might be taken as a hint that he hopes to play for a team on the East Coast.
Tommylee Lewis WR NO (9) 3 hours ago
Lewis signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Lewis is best remembered as the guy who was decked by Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman in last year's NFC Championship Game. Lewis moved on from New Orleans after the controversial no-call, signing with the Lions but then failing to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. He'll hope to win his way back into favor with the Saints, having made 34 appearances for the team between 2016 and 2018. Lewis can returns kickoffs and punts, in addition to serving as a part-time deep threat or trick-play specialist on offense. He'll face an uphill battle to make the roster if return specialist Deonte Harris stays healthy.
Will Compton LB OAK (6) 4 hours ago
Compton recorded 41 tackles over nine games in 2019.
Compton started the year on the Saints injured reserve, but he was let go with an injury settlement before signing with the Raiders. The 30-year-old linebacker worked in a reserve role for the first five games, but he started over the final four contests and accrued 27 tackles in that stretch. Compton will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Maxx Crosby DE OAK (6) 4 hours ago
Crosby posted 47 tackles, 10 sacks, four pass breakups and four forced fumbles over 16 games in 2019.
The Raiders expended a first-round pick on Clelin Ferrell, but it was Crosby who led the team in sacks in his rookie campaign. The fourth-round pick also posted 31 quarterback pressures. It'll be tough to repeat those marks in his sophomore campaign, but he's in line for a starting role again in 2020.
Lamarcus Joyner S OAK (6) 4 hours ago
Joyner posted 49 tackles and three pass breakups over 14 games in 2019.
Joyner signed a four-year, $42 million ticket last March, but the Raiders still spent a first-round pick on Johnathan Abram (shoulder) and brought Eric Harris aboard as well. The 29-year-old Joyner could have competition for a starting role in 2020 if the team brings back Karl Joseph (foot), whose injury recovery timeline is still unclear.
Johnathan Hankins DT OAK (6) 5 hours ago
Hankins posted 50 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass breakup over 16 games in 2019.
Hankins is a skilled run stopper, and the Raiders appear to be planning for him to be part of their future. In December, the team converted $1.75 million of his offseason bonus to a signing bonus. The defensive tackle will carry a $5.125 million cap hit in 2020, and he's in line for a starting role again.
Trayvon Mullen CB OAK (6) 5 hours ago
Mullen posted 50 tackles, 10 pass breakups and an interception over 16 games in 2019.
The rookie second-round pick out of Clemson played in a reserve role until the Raiders traded Gareon Conley to Houston. Following Conley's departure, Mullen started the final 10 games, and he was impressive in coverage, allowing 6.6 yards per target and two touchdowns. The 22-year-old is in line to be the team's No. 1 corner in 2020 even if the team retains Daryl Worley.
Daryl Worley CB OAK (6) 5 hours ago
Worley posted 58 tackles, eight pass breakups and an interception over 15 games in 2019.
Worley could use some work in coverage, as he allowed 8.3 yards per target and five touchdowns. The 24-year-old played under a one-year contract for the second straight season, and he's set to be an unrestricted free agent in March. If the Raiders decide to re-sign him, Worley will likely face some competition via free agency or the draft.
Nicholas Morrow LB OAK (6) 6 hours ago
Morrow posted 73 tackles, four pass breakups and an interception over 16 games in 2019.
Morrow only started eight games, but he averaged 46.8 defensive snaps per contest. The 24-year-old linebacker is set to be a restricted free agent in March, and the Raiders will likely retain him after he achieved career highs in stops and pass breakups. Morrow could have competition for a starting role again in 2020.
Corey Bojorquez P BUF (6) 6 hours ago
Bojorquez served as the Bills' only punter in 2019, kicking 79 times for a 41.9 gross average and 37.7 net average.
Bojorquez ranked 30th in both gross and net punt average of all punters with 20 or more kicks, though he can be given some leeway in that he kicks in a poor-weather stadium, which also happens to be one of the NFL's windiest venues. Plus, the Bills have to be happy with his 34 kicks inside the 20, which tied for third in the league. Bojorquez will almost certainly enter training camp as the incumbent, but he'll also have some competition in the form of Kaare Vedvik.
