Boston Scott, RB | PHI

Mon, Mar 01, 2021

Eagles tendered RB Boston Scott, LB Alex Singleton, and WR Greg Ward as exclusive free agents.

This means Scott, Ward, and Singleton can only negotiate with the Eagles this offseason. Scott made four starts for Miles Sanders in 2020, but was limited to 29 carries when he wasn’t starting. Doug Pederson's regime clearly liked Scott in the team's backfield; it remains to be seen how Nick Sirianni's staff will regard Scott. Ward, a former quarterback, has served as Philly's No. 1 receiver through large swaths of the past two seasons.

Patrick Mahomes, QB | KC

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said Patrick Mahomes will be “good to go” for training camp after undergoing toe surgery.

Mahomes has a three-month recovery period, putting him on track for a fairly normal offseason. He had surgery on his injured toe after KC was blown out by the Bucs in the Super Bowl -- a game that saw Mahomes limp around, clearly hobbled by the injury suffered in the Chiefs' playoff win over Cleveland. Barring a setback, Mahomes should be the first QB off the draft board in 2021 fantasy leagues.

Alex Smith, QB | WAS

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Washington will part ways with Alex Smith.

Smith, 36, is owed $26.2 million in 2021. Releasing him before June 1 would save Washington $14.7 million against the salary cap. The 2020 Comeback Player of the Year came back from a two-year leg injury to start six games for the Football Team after starting the season as a third stringer. Smith said recently that he knew Ron Rivera's coaching staff "didn’t want me there, didn’t want me to be a part of it, didn’t want me to be on the team, the roster, didn’t want to give me a chance." Apparently he was right. Jaguars Report's John Shipley said a reunion between Smith and Urban Meyer, his coach at Utah, would make sense. In February, Washington signed Taylor Heinicke -- who impressed in a playoff start against Tampa -- to a two-year deal. Heinicke, 27, will have a shot at the starting job in 2021 even when Washington brings in signal callers via the draft and free agency.
