$17M fully guaranteed

Patriots and RB Rhamondre Stevenson reached agreement on a four-year extension for $36 million, including $17M fully guaranteed, per source. (Adam Schefter on X)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Stevenson can now call New England home for the next four years. The Patriots are lacking a high-end passing attack meaning we should see a lot of Rhamondre and Antonio Gibson during the 2024 season. Stevenson saw 194 touches last season in 12 games which puts him in solid RB2 status in most formats.

Missed entire offseason program

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins is officially in the fold for the upcoming season.

Higgins will sign his franchise tag on Saturday, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter. By signing the tag, the fifth-year receiver is now expected to be at training camp. (ESPN)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Higgins has been sitting on the sidelines this off-season but should be at camp in late July now that he’s signed his franchise tag. Assuming he plays this season on the tag, he’ll earn $21.8 million. While a long-term deal is still an option, it’s likely the two sides will part ways after the 2024 season.

Injury Back in time for Week 1?

Saints TE Juwan Johnson is scheduled to undergo foot surgery next week that will sideline him “a while”, per source. The hope and belief for now is that he will be back for the start of the season. (Adam Schefter on X)

Nerdy Football Analysis: We don’t have the specifics of the injury yet, but it sounds like Johnson will miss most if not all of training camp. Not ideal, but not a total death blow to his fantasy value. Taysom Hill is the tight end target from this team moving forward.
