Davante Adams Intends to remain with Las Vegas
WR LV
Adams said Sunday at his annual youth football camp that he intends to play for the Raiders next season, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.
Analysis
There was some speculation early in the offseason that the Raiders could pursue trading their star wideout, but general manager Tom Telesco shot that idea down in late February. Adams' comments Sunday seem to solidify the expectation that he'll remain with Las Vegas for a third campaign in 2024. Adams reached the 100-reception mark for the fourth straight season in 2023, but his 1,144 receiving yards and eight receiving touchdowns were his lowest totals since 2019, when he played in only 12 games due to a toe injury.
Brandon Aiyuk Trade request denied by agent
WR SF
Aiyuk's agent, Ryan Williams of Athletes First, denied reports on social media Sunday that the wide receiver has requested a trade from the 49ers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis
Aiyuk's contract status has been a matter of intense speculation throughout the offseason, with San Francisco GM John Lynch saying in late February that the organization is seeking a long-term contract extension with the wideout and then denying reports that the 49ers were engaged in trade discussions regarding Aiyuk about a month later. While some chatter surfaced Sunday suggesting that Aiyuk had officially requested a trade out of San Francisco, his agent swiftly shot down the sources of that information on social media, so the status of the receiver's contract talks with the organization that drafted him in 2020 remains uncertain. An extension isn't a necessity for Aiyuk to suit up for the 49ers next season -- he could play out the 2024 campaign with the club on his fifth-year option and then hit free agency next offseason
Jaelan Phillips Expects to be ready for season
LB MIA 7hr ago
Phillips said Saturday that he will "definitely be back healthy for the season," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis
Phillips tore his Achilles during Miami's win against the Jets on Nov. 24 and underwent surgery less than a week later. He recently indicated on social media that he is walking without a boot, and his comments Saturday lend further optimism about his ability to be ready to suit up in time for the start of the 2024 regular season. Phillips racked up 43 tackles (28 solo), including 6.5 sacks, and an interception over eight games before suffering the Achilles injury last year.

CB JAC 1 day ago
The Jaguars re-signed Junior on Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Analysis
Junior was an exclusive rights free agent this offseason after playing in nine games last year. The cornerback mainly saw action on special teams and will look to carve out a depth role again in 2024.
Tim Jones Back in Jacksonville
WR JAC 1 day ago
The Jaguars re-signed Jones on Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Analysis
Jones was an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, so the Jaguars had the option to retain him for 2024. The wideout appeared in all 17 games last season for the second straight year, finishing the campaign with an 11-83-0 line on 18 targets. He upped his offensive involvement from 145 snaps in 2022 to 339 due to injuries to Christian Kirk and Zay Jones during the year. Jones will again compete for a depth job this summer.
Leroy Watson Flipped to Tennessee for late pick
OT TEN 1 day ago
The Titans acquired Watson from the Browns on Friday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis
In return, the Browns get the Titans' seventh-round pick -- No. 227 overall -- in this month's NFL Draft. Watson, 25, appeared in seven games for Cleveland last season, playing a total of 55 offensive snaps. New Titans OL coach Bill Callahan was with Watson in Cleveland last season, so the veteran coach must have liked what he saw from Watson in practice.

Analysis
After spending his first three seasons with the Packers, St. Brown was with the Bears the last two years and has 63 career catches for 928 yards and two touchdowns on 110 targets. In 2023, St. Brown missed 10 games with hamstring and pectoral injuries. In New Orleans, St. Brown will slot in on the depth chart and compete for a job behind Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed, Cedrick Wilson and A.T. Perry.
