    Getty Darren Waller with Bryan Edwards. The Las Vegas Raiders‘ wide receiver corps has brought in many new faces this offseason. Davante Adams is the headliner of the group but the team has also added players like Mack Hollins, Dermacus Robinson, Keelan Cole and more. As the team added more wide receivers, it was clear that some returning players could be on the move. While there was a lot of hype surrounding Bryan Edwards coming out of South Carolina, the Raiders ended up deciding to trade him to the Atlanta Falcons. He was coming off a solid sophomore season in Las Vegas that saw him accumulate 571 receiving yards, which was a big improvement over the 193 he had as a rookie. What worked against him is that he was a favorite of the previous coaching staff but didn’t have the same relationship with new head coach Josh McDaniels. Tight end Darren Waller, who is working with Icy Hot to help introduce their new PRO line, spoke to Heavy.com about the Edwards trade and believes that the wide...
    Getty Former Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones runs after a September 2021 catch. The Baltimore Ravens are still looking for another wide receiver after the draft-night blockbuster that sent Hollywood Brown to the Arizona Cardinals, and they could turn to one of the multiple All-Pro wideouts still on the market. The Ravens were initially rumored to be interested in Jarvis Landry before he opted for a homecoming with the New Orleans Saints, forcing them to find another option. Baltimore could renew their pursuit of four-time Pro Bowler T.Y. Hilton, but Bleacher Report’s Alex Ballentine thinks they could aim even higher by attempting to sign one of the two available All-Pro receivers. Ballentine listed the Ravens as a potential landing spot for both Julio Jones and Odell Beckham Jr., the only two wide receivers on his list of top remaining NFL free agents. “At this point, Julio Jones may be more name recognition than anything, but there’s still some potential for him to be a valuable asset,” wrote Ballentine on May 20. Indeed, Jones is no longer the consistently-elite...
    Getty New England Patriots N ‘keal Harry has had a rough start to his NFL career and things don’t seem to be getting any better for the New England Patriots wide receiver. ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Patriots newsletter here! After being drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Harry has struggled to get his career off the ground. In three seasons, Harry has 57 career catches for 598 yards and four touchdowns. This offseason has been an illustration of his struggles. New England declined to pick up his fifth-year option and he once again found himself on the trade block ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft. The Patriots were unable to find a trade partner and Harry still remains on the roster. Voluntary workouts have been going on since April but Harry hasn’t been present. The Athletic’s Jeff Howe wrote in his latest column that New England isn’t exactly pleased with the wide receiver. “Wide receiver N’Keal Harry didn’t do himself any favors by skipping the...
    Getty Jordan Veasy (right) with Colin Kaepernick and Brice Butler. When the Las Vegas Raiders traded Bryan Edwards to the Atlanta Falcons, they lost a lot of size at wide receiver. Mack Hollins was the only wide receiver left who was over 6-foot-1. The team has two good pass-catching tight ends with plenty of size in Darren Waller and Foster Moreau so it shouldn’t be much of an issue but they’ve decided to add some more size at wide receiver. OSMG announced that wide receiver Jordan Veasy has struck a deal with the Raiders.

    Getty Images New Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. If the 2022 regular season started today, the Cleveland Browns would run out a number of new skill players — and there may be even more fresh faces to come. The Browns wide receiver group feels like it is one pass catcher shy of a complete unit, even with the additions of Amari Cooper, acquired via a March trade with the Dallas Cowboys, and David Bell drafted last month out of Purdue University. Marc Sessler of NFL Network on Thursday, May 19 published a piece digging into every team’s top priority in what remains of the offseason. Cleveland’s situation was classified as something of a two-for-one, with Sessler noting the Browns’ primary need is along the defensive line but identifying the team’s second biggest issue at the wideout position. The name he suggested was QB Deshaun Watson’s former teammate with the Houston Texans, Will Fuller. The Browns overtly lack a fear-inducing pass rusher across from Myles Garrett. Jadeveon Clowney’s return is something of an assumption by fans, but what if he signs elsewhere?...
    The USC Trojans land another huge name to their offense through the transfer portal, and it is Pitt wide receiver Jordan Addison. Big things have happened with the USC Trojans program after they managed to pry Lincoln Riley away from the Oklahoma Sooners to become their head coach. Not long after that, Riley secured his former quarterback at Oklahoma, Caleb Williams, through the transfer portal. He has now added another huge name to the team’s offense.

    Getty Second-year Vikings receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette was named a reason Minnesota didn't draft a wide receiver high in the 2022 draft. Drafting a wide receiver early in the draft would have vaulted the Minnesota Vikings‘ pass-catching core among the top units in the league. Turns out, the Vikings believe they’re already there. The Athletic’s Chad Graff observed some insights from the first week of voluntary OTAs this week and revealed a vital reason why Minnesota opted to pass on spending valuable draft capital at wide receiver.

    Work has begun in earnest for the 2022 Chicago Bears season with organized team activities underway this week at Halas Hall. Brad Biggs opens the weekly Bears mailbag to find questions about Justin Fields, wide receiver options and the possibility of joint practices this summer. If you had to do your best to spin the Bears offseason positively for Justin Fields, how would you do so? — @theryanheckman The first place you start is Fields has a year of experience with 10 starts under his belt. It doesn’t matter that he was in a system with coaches he no longer plays for. He understands the difference between college and the NFL now, the intricacies of reading defenses, preparing with a game plan and studying film. All of that is beneficial and should aid him in Year 2, when none of that will be new to him. What is new is the coaching staff, led by offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, and the playbook. The hope is Getsy and quarterbacks coach Andrew Janocko can help unlock Fields’ immense physical talent and allow...
    After the trade that returned the Ravens’ wide receiver group to that oh-so-familiar offseason zone — more potential than production, more questions than answers — Eric DeCosta couldn’t resist a joke. The Ravens general manager had just traded Marquise “Hollywood” Brown for the first-round pick that became center Tyler Linderbaum. He was asked: Did the deal leave the team thin at wide receiver? “I was thinking about that, and I kind of missed all the questions this year,” DeCosta said last month. “I was thinking, ‘I kind of want to get back to the days of old,’ you know?” In the three weeks since, the Ravens haven’t done anything at wide receiver but sign a handful of undrafted free agents and tout their young group. DeCosta said the team expects a “big, big jump this year” from 2021 first-round pick Rashod Bateman. He called Devin Duvernay a “great young player.” There was praise for James Proche II and Tylan Wallace. There were reminders that the team already has All-Pro tight end Mark Andrews. The wait for immediate help, however, goes...
    Getty Former Raiders WR Tre Turner. The Las Vegas Raiders are set to rely on veterans at the wide receiver positions this season. Bryan Edwards was one of the few young wide receivers left on the roster but the team traded him away to the Atlanta Falcons. The Raiders avoided the position in the draft but did find a couple of undrafted free agents. The most notable signing was Tre Turner out of Virginia Tech. He was one of the Hokies’ top receivers for the past few years but didn’t do enough to get drafted. When the Raiders signed him, they gave him $40,000 worth of guarantees, per Jordan Schultz. That’s not a ton of money for an NFL team but it’s guaranteed money that they have to pay. It would have been easy to assume that he’d at least make it to training camp. That wasn’t the case as the Raiders decided to cut Turner due to a number of recent signings. Raiders cut Tre Turner and Brett Heggie — Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) May 16, 2022 Turner...
    Getty The Cowboys could target Julio Jones in free agency. The Dallas Cowboys are considered a favorite to land one of the most accomplished receivers in the league. According to Matt Severance of Sportsline’s betting odds, the Cowboys are one of several betting favorites to sign free agent wide receiver Julio Jones. At +700 odds, Dallas has the sixth-best odds of any team to sign the top free agent wide receiver. Severance explains that Jones’ previous history with Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn — Quinn was the head coach the Atlanta Falcons from 2015 until 2020 — and Michael Gallup’s recovery from a torn ACL could lead to Dallas signing Jones. “Dallas traded away Amari Cooper this offseason and Michael Gallup is recovering from a torn ACL,” says Severance. “Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was Atlanta’s head coach during Jones’ most productive NFL seasons, which included five consecutive years of at least 1,300 receiving yards.”Jones Suffered Through Injury-Plagued 2021 SeasonAfter spending the first 10 years of his career with the Falcons upon entering the league in 2011, Jones...

    The Ravens should be looking for a wide receiver who has as much name recognition as production. One of the leading candidates appeared to be free-agent veteran Jarvis Landry, but he reportedly signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints on Friday. Landry’s skill set is comparable to second-year Ravens wideout Rashod Bateman, but the biggest difference is that Landry has been in the NFL since 2014 and has 688 career receptions for 7,598 yards. Bateman had 46 catches for 515 yards a year ago. Other than that, they are the same type of player. After the Ravens traded speedy wide receiver Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals nearly two weeks ago on the first night of the NFL draft, they knew they had to find someone who could draw the attention of defensive coordinators when they focused on tight end Mark Andrews. Landry would have been the easiest fix. Now, the Ravens are forced to look elsewhere. There are other prominent free-agent receivers still available such as Odell Beckham Jr., Will Fuller V and Julio Jones, but they...
    Getty The Cowboys could add to their receiver depth by acquiring Deonte Harris. The Dallas Cowboys could add some desperately needed depth to their wide receiver room with this trade. According to Brian Martin of Blogging the Boys, the Cowboys should pull off a trade for New Orleans Saints wide receiver/kick return Deonte Harris. Harris is a former Pro Bowler and an ex-All-Pro selection, having garnered the accolades during the 2019 season as a rookie. He finished the 2019 season as the leader in punt returns, combined returns and punt return yards. “Harris will be playing under a one-year deal with the Saints in 2022 and currently finds himself buried on the depth chart,” says Martin. “Because of that, he could be acquired via trade and Dallas should jump at the opportunity. Harris could be a veteran who can be a WR, gadget player, and return specialist. That kind of triple-threat is exactly what they need.” While the Cowboys could acquire Harris for a reasonable price, Martin stresses Dallas’ lack of receiver depth following Amari Cooper’s trade as...
    Detroit Lions rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams revealed why he chose the No. 18, and he will win over plenty of fans for it. The Detroit Lions had a first-round that fans will remember for quite some time. Not only did Michigan pass rusher Aidan Hutchinson fall to the Lions at the No. 2 pick, but they negotiated a trade with the Minnesota Vikings to trade up to select Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams. At Lions rookie minicamp, Williams was spotted wearing a No. 18 jersey. When meeting with the media, Williams revealed he chose the number as a nod to former Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. #Lions WR Jameson Williams is rocking No. 18 during rookie minicamp as a nod to Calvin Johnson (81) and Randy Moss, his favorite player of all-time — who wore it in Oakland.

    Getty Former Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards. Once the Las Vegas Raiders‘ roster for 2022 started coming together, it looked like Bryan Edwards could be an odd man out. The team added another big wide receiver in Mack Hollins and new head coach Josh McDaniels notably never had much to say about Edwards. His feelings about the wide receiver became apparent when the Raiders traded him to the Atlanta Falcons for a late-round pick swap. Edwards wouldn’t have had much of a role this season with Davante Adams coming to Las Vegas. Adams and Hunter Renfrow will be seeing a majority of the wide receiver snaps. Edwards would’ve seen his snap count take a decline this season so moving to the Falcons could be really good for him. Also, he’s from South Carolina and he’ll now be a lot closer to home. Edwards had a chance to react to the trade news on his Instagram and decided to take the high road.

(Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images) The Green Bay Packers‘ options to add a veteran wide receiver to their roster are thinning, though a few affordable players with strong track records of success remain available. Former Cleveland Browns pass catcher Jarvis Landry came off the free agent board Friday, May 13, when he inked a one-year deal to join the New Orleans Saints. Landry was among several free agent wideouts the Packers were thought to be considering as potential additions to a position group devoid of any true top-end talent. Also among those wide receivers named by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport as candidates to join Green Bay are Julio Jones, most recently of the Tennessee Titans, and Odell Beckham Jr., who just won a Super Bowl ring as a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Rapoport laid out the specifics of the...
    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Free agent wide receiver Jarvis Landry, a five-time Pro Bowler, is joining the New Orleans Saints. The eight-year veteran confirmed the move on Twitter on Friday. Landry spent his first four pro seasons with Miami before joining the Browns. He led the league in receptions in 2017 with 112, his final season with the Dolphins. In all, the 2014 second-round draft pick from LSU has 688 receptions for 7,598 yards and 37 touchdowns. Landry, 29, is coming off his worst season as a pro. He was instrumental in improving Cleveland’s culture and helping the Browns break their long playoff drought in 2020. But he missed time in 2021 with a knee injury and finished with career lows in receptions (52), yards (570) and touchdown catches (2). The Browns considered restructuring his contract, but the sides couldn’t strike a deal and Cleveland released Landry in March. Landry finished with 288 catches for 3,560 yards and 15 TDs with the Browns. He had hoped to win a Super Bowl title in Cleveland with close friend and college teammate...
