- According to Joel Corry of CBS Sports, February 7th marks the first day for the Broncos to exercise their contract options on LB Todd Davis, G Ronald Leary, K Brandon McManus, and LB Von Miller. The deadline to exercise the options will come on the last day of the 2019 league year which is March 18th.
- According to Joel Corry of CBS Sports, Chiefs DE Terrell Suggs‘ 2020 contract year voided on Friday, which means Suggs will become an unrestricted free agent on March 18th.
- According to Tom Curran of NBC Boston, there is “very little going on” right now between the Patriots and Tom Brady, as negotiations have yet to begin. Curran says Brady is open to coming back under the right circumstances.
- The Patriots are reportedly willing to extend themselves financially to retain Brady, but Curran mentions that ownership will not pressure HC Bill Belichick either way.
- Curran’s understanding is that there are no parameters for Brady’s next contract right now, despite a recent report that they’re willing to pay him over $30 million.
- According to Curran, indications from last year were that Brady would have been open to a two-year, $50 million contract similar to the one signed by Drew Brees last March. However, Brady is now in position to test the open market and can’t be franchised, which means he could very well do even better than the $25 million per year Brees got from the Saints.
