Gerald Everett, TE | LAR

The Athletic's Sheil Kapadia believes there's a "good chance" Gerald Everett will be "viewed as a starter on the open market."

Everett in 2020 saw as many targets as Rams teammate Tyler Higbee despite running fewer pass routes. Now a free agent, Everett could land on a team that sees him not as a No. 2 tight end, but a starter. Last year, Everett averaged 7.97 PPR points in games where he saw at least five targets. "If a team thinks there’s untapped upside," Kapadia said, "a deal in the neighborhood of $7 million to $8 million per year could be in play." Higbee, signed with LA through the 2023 season, would presumably see more opportunity if Everett signs with another team, though that's far from a guarantee.

Hunter Henry, TE | LAC

The Athletic's Sheil Kapadia believes Hunter Henry could get $10.5 million a year in free agency.

Kapadia said Austin Hooper's 2020 deal with Cleveland could be a fair comp for what Henry might fetch on the open market. Henry, 26, was franchise tagged last year. Henry, who averaged more fantasy points last season than all but nine tight ends, could see significant interest from teams who see him as a matchup nightmare against slower linebackers and smaller safeties. Ex-XFLer and touchdown machine Donald Parham could get a real shot at the Chargers' starting tight end job if Henry signs elsewhere this offseason.

Drew Brees, QB | NO

A video posted by Drew Brees' trainer showing the quarterback working out has raised questions about Brees' intent to retire.

The trainer, Todd Durkin, posted a video in which Brees pushed a weight sled -- hardly the exercise routine of a 42 year old getting ready to retire. The workout video was full of cryptic comments from Durkin, who said, "Don’t know what he’s doing, I’m not sure what he’s doing. Never quite been done before! That’s a new record because it’s never been done before!” while Brees pushed a sled across a parking lot. Saints head coach Sean Payton said nearly a month ago that he expected an announcement from Brees on his future with the team. That announcement never came. With Brees' salary already slashed by $24 million to allow the Saints to carry a reduced cap number until June 2, the Hall of Fame QB would theoretically play for a base salary of $1.075 million if he shirks retirement. For fantasy purposes, Brees coming back for one last run with New Orleans would make Alvin Kamara a top-2 pick in 2021, while Michael Thomas would be far less desirable than he would be with Jameis Winston or another signal caller with more arm strength than the aged Brees.
