Lions Release Bruce Ellington

The Detroit Lions released wide receiver Bruce Ellington, safety Glover Quinn and linebacker Nicholas Grigsby on Friday. Ellington signed with the Lions after they traded Golden Tate to the Eagles and became their slot receiver until he landed on Injured Reserve on Dec. 22. He had 23 catches for 132 yards in four games for Detroit. Ellington's best year came in 2017 with the Texans when he had 29 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns. Wherever he signs, he'll battle for a roster spot in training camp.

Nick Foles Interested In Giants?

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles would "probably" be interested in playing for the New York Giants if they decide to move on from Eli Manning, according to one person with knowledge of Foles' thinking. Foles landing with the Giants would be less likely if the Eagles place the franchise tag on him, which is unlikely. The Jaguars are another team to watch out for, and there is mutual interest between them and Foles. After winning Super Bowl MVP two years ago and playing well as a starter again in 2018 when Carson Wentz was injured, Foles should earn a starting gig on the open market with several teams looking for a signal caller. While Foles has QB1 upside in the right matchups, his 2019 fantasy value will ultimately depend on where he winds up.

Adam Humphries Might Be Too Expensive For Bucs

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent wide receiver Adam Humphries is expected to seek $8 million a year on his next contract, and that might be about $2 million more than the team is willing to pay. Humphries was second in targets last year behind Mike Evans with 105 and also was second in catches (76) and third in receiving yards (816). If Humphries leaves in free agency, Chris Godwin could fill the slot role, which has been a position of big-time production under head coach Bruce Arians in his time with the Cardinals. Godwin is an excellent blocker and has the speed to get vertical on the field. Godwin will turn 23 later this month and had 59 catches (95 targets) for 842 yards and seven touchdowns in his sophomore season. Just imagine what he could do in Arians' offense if both Humphries and DeSean Jackson are out of town in 2019. He'll be a popular breakout candidate with WR2 upside.
