Fantasy Impact: Mayowa started his career back in 2013 with Seattle, and will now come full circle as he inks a deal with the Seahawks for the 2020 season. He’s also played for the Raiders, Cowboys, and Cardinals in his seven-year career. Last year in Oakland, Mayowa recorded a career-high seven sacks in 15 games. The rotational edge rusher will look to continue his success as he joins the Seattle Seahawks once again.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran guard has played for seven teams in nine seasons in the NFL. Person started his career in San Francisco in 2011 as a 7th-round selection out of Montana State. He’s played the last two seasons with the 49ers and in his career, he has started 48 of 73 total games. Person will become a free agent and look to add depth to a new team’s offensive line.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Utah State QB Jordan Love has conducted virtual visits with the Packers and Saints. (Source: Around the NFL on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Love has also had contact with the Chargers, Raiders, Colts, and Dolphins. The 21-year-old is considered one of the five best quarterbacks in this month's NFL draft. It is widely expected that Love winds up being a first-round pick.

Fantasy Impact: Tagovailoa added, "I feel like if there was a game today, I'd be able to go out and perform the same way I was able to perform in previous years". The southpaw's agent has been sending teams all the necessary updated medical information, since team doctors cannot meet with Tagovailoa due to the coronavirus pandemic. There are a number of organizations that are expected to be interested in the 22-year-old's services. A team to watch is the Dolphins, who currently hold the fifth overall pick.

Lamar Jackson has been working out with Antonio Brown this offseason. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson has been throwing passes to free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown this off-season. In a video posted on Instagram, AB is shown catching a 50-yard pass from Jackson. There has been no report of the Ravens showing interest of signing AB, but the two have have worked out with each other recently. Brown is still under investigation and it is unknown when he will be eligible to play in the NFL. Tampa Bay has ruled out signing AB, but it remains to be seen if Baltimore will kick the tires on it. With or without AB, Jackson is already a sure fire QB1 and is currently number one among all quarterbacks in the expert consensus rankings.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter is reporting that sources have said that the New England Patriots are going to release quarterback Cody Kessler. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: By releasing Kessler, the Patriots are down to two quarterbacks on the roster. Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham will battle it out this offseason to see who be will be the Patriots starting quarterback. If Stidham is still available in your dynasty league snap him up quick, as has a legitimate chance of being the starter.

Tyrod Taylor “is in the driver’s seat to start, but nothing is finalized,” said Chargers Head Coach Anthony Lynn. (Source: Gilbert Manzano on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Taylor is expected to be the Chargers’ starting quarterback for 2020. With Cam Newton and Jameis Winston available in free agency, there were rumors swirling around that the team would bring in another quarterback to compete with Taylor. This could change, but for now Taylor has the inside track as the team’s starting QB. The 30-year-old is currently 36th among all quarterbacks in the expert consensus rankings.

Free agent DT Timmy Jernigan has agreed to a one-year, up to $3.75M deal, with $1.25M guaranteed, with the Houston Texans, per his agent Bill Johnson. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens’ former 2014 second-round pick out of Florida State is headed to Houston on a one-year deal. Jernigan spent three seasons in Baltimore, before signing with the Eagles in 2017. In his six-year career, he’s recorded 132 tackles and 17.5 sacks. He’ll provide the Texans with solid play on the interior of the defensive line in 2020.

Per Titans GM Jon Robinson, the team has been in touch with the agent of Pro-Bowl DE Jadeveon Clowney. (Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A move to bring in an experienced and versatile pass rusher like Clowney would make a whole lot of sense for Tennessee, who struggled to get pressure on the quarterback last season. Clowney, the former 2014 first overall pick, spent last season with the Seahawks in what many would consider a down year for him, only recording three sacks in 13 games. In the two seasons prior to last with the Texans, Clowney went for 9.5 and nine sacks respectively, so the ability is certainly there given the right opportunity. We’ll see how things play out in the upcoming weeks, but the Titans general manager certainly wants people to know that they’ve called about Clowney.

The Cardinals have told reporters that they have had discussions with DeAndre Hopkins’ representation about the wide receiver's contract. (Source: Kent Somers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It seems that this is still very early, but Hopkins has made it known that he wants top dollar in a new deal. Still, the Cardinals have Hopkins under control for several more years at a very team-friendly total, so it's to be determined how quick they are to move on this. Whatever the case, Hopkins should continue to be one of the top receivers in the league despite changing teams this offseason.

Kyle Allen told reporters that he believes the "expectation is to come in and compete for" the starting quarterback role in Washington. (Source: Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Fantasy Impact: Washington invested a first-round pick in incumbent Dwayne Haskins just a year ago, but with a new regime will come new expectations, and Haskins didn't exactly cement his role during his rookie season. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, but neither Allen or Haskins is likely to be fantasy relevant in most league formats in 2020. Their impact will instead most likely be on the skill position players around them.

At this point, The Athletic believes quarterback Jarrett Stidham has the "inside track" to become the team's 2020 starting quarterback. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Of course, much can change between now and then, as the team still has to make it through the 2020 NFL Draft. New England also signed veteran Brian Hoyer, who is expected to compete for the role. Still, Stidham is an interesting player to monitor this offseason and into the new year given his potential as the team's starter. Still, he's not likely fantasy relevant outside of 2QB and dynasty formats.

Kamalei Correa is signing a one-year, $3 million deal with the Titans. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Correa totaled 37 tackles and a career-high five sacks across 16 games for the Titans last season. He will continue his usual outside linebacker role and should be involved in the rotation during passing situations. Correa is worth a flyer in deep-league IDP formats.

Colt McCoy signs with the Giants

Wed, Apr 1st 12:22pm EDT
By Dave Kluge

Free agent Colt McCoy has officially signed with the Giants. (Source: New York Giants on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although Daniel Jones has a firm hold on the starting job in New York, McCoy will be a great veteran locker room presence to fill the void left by Eli Manning's retirement. McCoy has served as a backup for the last seven seasons but given the playmakers on the Giants he could be a serviceable fantasy asset if Jones were to miss any games.

Former Falcons DE Jack Crawford has signed a deal with the Tennessee Titans, per his representation DEC Management. (Source: Adam Caplan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The eight-year veteran from Penn State spent the last three years in Atlanta. In 2018, he recorded a career-high six sacks. Crawford spent two seasons in Oakland to start his career and then three years in Dallas before joining the Falcons. He’s played a total of 93 games in his career, recording 136 tackles and 15.5 sacks. He’ll add some depth and veteran leadership to the Tennessee defensive line this upcoming season.

Adrian Clayborn is signing a two-year, $6 million contract with the Browns. The deal is worth up to $7 million in incentives. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Clayborn totaled 18 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles across 15 games for the Falcons in 2019. The 31-year-old racked up 13.5 sacks in two seasons as a Falcon from 2017-2019. Clayborn will provide the Browns depth at the defensive line and is considered a flyer at best in deep-league IDP formats.

Jets backup QB David Fales will return to New York after agreeing to a one-year deal. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fales has been on five teams in his six-year NFL career. He played with the Jets in 2019, serving as Sam Darnold’s backup for most of the season. He’ll look to claim that gig again in 2020.

Trade now official: Former Jaguars QB Nick Foles is headed to Chicago in exchange for the 140th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Foles will compete with incumbent QB Mitch Trubisky for the starting job in Chicago. Foles is also reunited with Head Coach Matt Nagy, with whom he played under in Kansas City in 2016 when Nagy was the offensive coordinator there. It’ll be interesting to see if Foles can wrestle the starting job away from Trubisky, but in either case, the QB competition is mutually beneficial to both players, and should increase the level of play at the position in Chicago.

Chris Godwin will change his jersey number from 12 to 14 since adding quarterback Tom Brady in free agency. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Godwin wore 12 since his rookie year, but will relinquish that number to their new free agent who has worn 12 since being drafted 20 years ago. It's good to see that Godwin and Brady are starting off their new relationship amicably as he should be a top target for the future Hall of Fame quarterback next season.

Redskins G Brandon Scherff has signed his $15M+ franchise tender with the team and will return to Washington in 2020. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The three-time Pro Bowl G will be required to report to training camp should one start on time this season. The former 2015 first-round pick out of Iowa has been one of the best guards in the league for Washington, and he’ll continue to be a cornerstone of that offensive line for at least another year.
