Latest Headlines

Despite being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Stevan Ridley (knee/thigh) is expected to play in Week 6 against the Saints.

Initial reports indicated Ridley's injury was not a long-term worry, and his return after just one missed game would confirm that. Ridley will be an interesting flex play against a Saints defense that's far more vulnerable to the run than pass, and could see more carries than usual after LeGarrette Blount's Week 5 lost fumble. View Ridley as a boom-or-bust Week 6 fantasy play.

A source told ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi that the Browns "would make another run" at trading for Jimmy Garoppolo at this week's Owners Meetings.

Convening in Phoenix for a few days of meetings, the Patriots' and Browns' top decision-makers -- Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick of the Patriots and Jimmy Haslam and Sashi Brown of the Browns -- will be in the same building, making for easier conversations of a potential deal. There have been several reports of the Patriots being adamant they won't trade Garoppolo, but the Browns are going to try their best. Grossi believes either Garoppolo or Cody Kessler will be the Week 1 starter.

Bears CB Deiondre' Hall and Packers CB Makinton Dorleant were arrested in Cedar Falls, Iowa on Saturday night.

Both played college football at Northern Iowa. Hall was cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and interference, while Dorleant was booked for interference.

The incident reportedly happened at a bar called "Sharky's" near or on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

Theo Riddick underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season.

The injuries cost Riddick the final four games of last season. He is expected to be a full participant at OTAs. While roles throughout the rest of Detroit's backfield remain in flux and could be affected by the draft, Riddick should be locked in as the team's passing-down specialist. Under OC Jim Bob Cooter, the Lions have embraced a quick-pass offense that suits Riddick's skill set. He will again be a worthwhile mid-round investment in 2017 PPR drafts.

Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News believes it's "only a matter of time" until the Bills fire GM Doug Whaley.

Whaley has been at odds with new coach Sean McDermott seemingly since the day McDermott was hired. Sullivan believes Whaley has already lost the power struggle, with McDermott emerging as the team's "voice." We saw this play out early in the month when Buffalo kept Tyrod Taylor on a restructured deal, a decision that was heavily influenced by McDermott. Sullivan believes Whaley's exodus could occur after the draft. At that point, McDermott would likely bring in a GM of his choosing. Sullivan mentioned Panthers director of player personnel Don Gregory as a possible replacement for Whaley.

Bengals released MLB Rey Maualuga.

The writing was on the wall after the Bengals signed Kevin Minter. Maualuga was a seven-year starter in Cincy, but injuries and ineffectiveness reduced him to a part-time role (326 snaps) in 2016. His release saves $3.75 million against the cap. Entering his age-30 season, Maualuga should resurface closer to the veteran minimum.

Adrian Peterson said he is "in no rush" to find a new team.

That is convenient because NFL teams are in no rush to sign him. In a statement which must be true considering the number of all-caps words and exclamation points, Peterson shot down reports he is looking for $8 million in the first year of his new deal before adding "finding the best fit" and helping a team "win a championship" are his main objectives. Peterson has received almost zero interest since becoming a free agent.

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Tony Romo believes his options for 2017 are retiring or playing for the Texans.

Darlington said the Broncos haven't "closed the door" on Romo but aren't actively pursuing him. Romo ending up in Houston seemed like a forgone conclusion when the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to Cleveland, but no progress has been made. With Romo still stranded in Dallas, it's possible he could leave to pursue a career in broadcasting. Romo has been offered gigs with Fox Sports and CBS. All we know for sure is that Romo is done in Dallas.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't commit to Josh McCown as the team's starting quarterback.

Maccagnan said that decision will be made by coach Todd Bowles. He added that it's "highly unlikely" the Jets will add another quarterback in free agency but acknowledged that drafting one is a possibility. McCown is still the odds-on favorite to start but it's a near certainty that his body will break down at some point. That would open the door for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg to make starts later in the year.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports free agent Adrian Peterson is looking for $8 million in the first year of his new contract.

He can keep dreaming. That would make Peterson the third highest-paid running back in the league behind Le'Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy. Previous reports have suggested teams are reluctant to pay Peterson even $5 million annually, making his $8 million asking price downright laughable. Aging, fragile and fumble-prone, Peterson's stock has never been lower.

The Panthers will exercise WR Kelvin Benjamin's fifth-year team option for 2018.

It's a no-brainer. While Benjamin tore his ACL in 2015 and had a down 2016, he's still a big talent in a wide receiver corps that otherwise lacks it. Benjamin turned 26 in February and is under team control through his age-27 year. He should benefit from a healthy offseason and needs Cam Newton to bounce back to his MVP level of play. Benjamin is a fantasy WR3 with big upside.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Packers "mulled" a visit with free agent Adrian Peterson but ultimately decided against it.

According to Fowler, Peterson's asking price is believed to be too high. One of the best running backs in the history of the league, Peterson doesn't seem to realize he's a 32-year-old running back in an NFL that is devaluing the position. He's not going to get top-end money. Peterson will likely have to settle for something around $5-6 million or he's going to be without a team.
