1. TEN - RB Derrick Henry agrees to extension

Source: FOX Sports - Jay Glazer

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry agreed to a new four-year contract with the Titans Wednesday, July 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The terms were later announced at four years, 50 million, with 25.5 million guaranteed. So basically the Titans gave Henry two franchise tags plus a few million up front for security and Henry will have a chance to earn his year three and four salaries with play over the next two years. It's not that different from the deal Le'Veon Bell signed with the Jets and sends a clear signal that the Titans are going to give this team a two or three year window to push for the top of the AFC and a Super Bowl berth.

2. CIN - No new deal for WR A.J. Green

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green did not reach a long-term agreement with the Bengals before the July 15 deadline and will play under the one-year franchise tag tender offer.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

As expected Green will play under the one year, 17.86 million dollar contract. If he stays healthy, he'll be a steal at current ADP, but Green hasn't done that for the last two years.

3. DAL - QB Dak Prescott to play under tag

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott did not reach a long-term agreement with the Cowboys before the July 15 deadline and will play under the one-year franchise tag tender offer.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

This was expected even though there were rumblings today a deal was close. It appears the Cowboys "like" but don't love Prescott and a new deal and they're willing to take their chances with the tag. We'll see.

4. HOU - WR Kenny Stills arrested

Source: Louisville Courier Journal - Lucas Aulbach

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills was among 87 people arrested Tuesday, July 14, while allegedly protesting outside of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's home. The group was in protest demanding action for the Breonna Taylor case, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Stills was charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process, a felony, as well as misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. His arraignment was set for 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

This doesn't fall under typical off-field arrests and the league may not pursue any discipline against Stills for this. He's part of a crowded and uncertain Texans wide receiver picture in the wake of the DeAndre Hopkins trade and he has often been the last drafted of the top four - if he is drafted at all.

FOOTBALLGUYS PICKS

5. MIA - Tua Tagovailoa's status unknown

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (hip) was examined by team doctors during the brief availability period this offseason, but head coach Brian Flores didn't say much about what it means for 2020. 'Yes, he was examined, but again, 'examined' and then doing a two-hour practice and playing in a game - there's a process to all those things,' Flores said. 'So, as far as whether or not he can or can't do something, it would be hard to say.'

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

If Tagovailoa is physically sound and stays healthy through camp, he could take over during the season, but if he is not 100% to open camp the team could decide to take it slow with his on-field development since they have Ryan Fitzpatrick. It's wiser to bet on Tagovailoa starting more games than Fitzpatrick, but be open to this changing when we learn about Tagovailoa's condition at the open of camp.

6. JAX - JAX holding firm on DE Yannick Ngakoue

Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue has been in discussions with other teams about a long-term deal, but the Jaguars have been the holdup as they seem unwilling to trade him.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Jaguars appear to be drawing the line with Ngakoue after giving Jalen Ramsey the trade he was seeking last year. Ngakoue could decide to play out this year for 17.78 million and perhaps hope for a midseason trade, but he could also try the strategy of opting out of playing if the players get that right and seeing if the Jaguars will trade him next year.

7. LAC - TE Hunter Henry unable to reach agreement

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry did not reach a long-term agreement with the Chargers before the July 15 deadline and will play under the one-year franchise tag tender offer.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Henry will make 10.6 million this year. If he can stay healthy and produce this year, he'll get a 2021 contract like the four-year $44 million dollar deal fellow 2016 draftee Austin Hooper got from Cleveland this offseason.

8. CLE - Grant Delpit signs rookie deal

Cleveland Browns second-round draft choice S Grant Delpit signed a four-year contract with the Browns Wednesday, July 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Delpit should be an everydown player right away in the Browns defense, and playing behind a suspect linebacker group that is yet to be settled. He could be an instant impact IDP rookie.
