Finished 5th in targets for the Ravens in 2023

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Ravens receiving room didn’t have much value outside of Zay Flowers last season. Agholor finished the year with a 35-381-4 line and wasn’t much of a fantasy factor. At best he’ll be fourth in the pecking order for targets next season behind Flowers, TE Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman.

Raiders expected to release veteran QB

Jimmy Garoppolo will not appeal his two-game suspension, and he now will miss the first two games of the 2024 season wherever he is playing, but it no longer is expected to be in Las Vegas with the Raiders, per sources. (Adam Schefter on X)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Garoppolo is expected to be released before his $11.25 million roster bonus kicks in early in March. Aidan O’Connell took over the starting QB job as Jimmy G. was largely ineffective during the first few weeks of the season. QB desperate teams will give Garoppolo a look and it wouldn’t be surprising if he lands a starting gig in 2024.

Two years left on his deal

The #Steelers and QB Mitchell Trubisky have decided to mutually part ways, sources say. The sides spoke to assess the situation and Trubisky, 29, gets a fresh start just over a month ahead of the start of the league year and free agency. (Mike Garafolo on X)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Trubisky appeared in five games this season and never cracked 200 yards passing or threw for more than 1 TD. He had two years left on his deal but no guaranteed money, making him an easy release. The Steelers have Kenny Pickett on the roster for now, but expected a veteran (Ryan Tannehill?) to be signed with Arthur Smith in town as the new OC.

New OC envisions Godwin in Cooper Kupp role

Bucs OC Liam Coen says he sees Chris Godwin moving back inside in the slot position. The Bucs got away from that a year ago thinking it may preserve him from a health standpoint. But he will be back in his old position in 2024. (Rick Stroud on X)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Despite reaching 1000 receiving yards, Godwin had a quiet 2023 season with just three TDs (one rushing) and two 100-yard receiving games on 83 receptions. We could see his catch totals increase with former Rams’ OC Coen directing the offense. Mike Evans is a free agent and whether or not he returns to Tampa remains to be seen.
