Martavis Bryant wants to remain with Steelers in 2018
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant says he wants to remain with the Steelers for 2018.
It was a bit of a tumultuous season for Bryant, who became frustrated with his role in the Steelers' offense and was suspended by the team in Week 8 after trying to force his way out via trade. Following the Week 9 bye, Bryant settled in and maintained steady production throughout the end of the year while flashing his playmaking ability, so it remains to be seen if the 26-year-old wideout will be back in Pittsburgh next season.
Bryant finished with 50 receptions (84 targets) for 603 yards and 3 touchdowns in 15 games for the Steelers this season while averaging 7.6 FanDuel points per contest.
Jaguars' Allen Robinson (ACL) expects to be healthy by start of free agency
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson (ACL) expects to be healthy and able to pass a physical before free agency opens in March.
Robinson tore his ACL in Week 1 and underwent surgery soon just a few days later, putting him on track to be at least close to 100 percent by the time he hits the market in March. Robinson suggested that he's targeting something similar to the four-year, $58-million deal that Davante Adams signed with the Green Bay Packers last month.
In his two healthy seasons (2015-2016), Robinson hauled in a total of 153 catches (302 targets) for 2,283 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns for the Jaguars.
Chiefs' Darrelle Revis wants to return next season
Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Darrelle Revis wants to play in 2018.
"I wasn't great or my best ever. No way," Revis admitted. "But at the same time, for what I came in here and was asked to do, for the most part, I'm happy with it." After signing in November, Revis played in six games with the Chiefs this season, including the playoffs. He will be 33 by the start of next season but likely showed enough to warrant a shot in 2018, whether it be in Kansas City on a negotiated deal or elsewhere.
Revis recorded 11 tackles (10 solo) with 2 deflected passes in five regular season contests for the Chiefs.
Titans' DeMarco Murray says he remains among league's best
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray said he "definitely" can continue to produce as a top-end player at his position.
“I am very confident in myself and I am excited,” Murray said. “I am excited about the future, and my future. I know what kind of player I am.” Despite the conviction, Murray turns 30 next month and is coming off a season where he matched his career-low with 3.6 yards per carry. With 2016 second-round pick Derrick Henry taking over as the Titans' workhorse back, Murray will likely be released this offseason.
Murray averaged 10.1 FanDuel points in 15 games this season, with 184 rushes for 659 yards (3.6 yards per carry) and 6 touchdowns, in addition to 39 catches for 266 yards and 1 score on 47 targets.
Le'Veon Bell 'definitely' wants to stick with Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell said he "definitely" wants to re-sign with the team.
"I never want to leave this city, but obviously, circumstances and things like that," Bell admitted while discussing his future in Pittsburgh. The six-year veteran, who turns 26 next month, has threatened to sit out or retire if the Steelers franchise tag him for a second consecutive year, so this figures to be one of the more popular storylines of the offseason.
Bell averaged 20.3 FanDuel points in 15 games during the regular season, with 1,291 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground, in addition to 655 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns on 85 catches (106 targets) through the air.
Drew Brees expects to re-sign with Saints
New Orleans Saints impending free agent quarterback Drew Brees expects to re-sign with the team.
Brees declared that he not only intends to remain with the Saints moving forward, but he believes the team is entering "a window of time here where we can really make a run at it." Despite celebrating his 39th birthday on Monday, the veteran quarterback showed he has plenty left in the tank this season while leading an offense that evolved into one of the league's most well-balanced attacks.
Brees averaged 17.5 FanDuel points in 16 games this season, with 4,334 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions while leading the NFL with a career-high 72.0 completion percentage.
