      Burfict was reinstated from a suspension last month and hopes to play in the NFL in 2020, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

      Analysis: Burfict opened 2019 as a starter for Oakland but was suspended for the rest of the season after a helmet-to-helmet hit Week 4 against Indianapolis. The 29-year-old linebacker has a long history of dirty hits and hasn't played at a high level since 2017, so the most he can hope for this offseason is a chance to battle for a starting job.

      The Patriots and Jaguars are interested in acquiring Hurst from the Ravens, Eugene Frenette of The Florida Times-Union reports reports.

      Analysis: The 2018 first-round pick reportedly wants an opportunity to catch more passes, after averaging 28.6 offensive snaps and 2.4 targets per game in 2019. He may be underutilized in Baltimore, but Hurst's well-rounded skill set makes him a valuable backup to both Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle in the Ravens' TE-heavy offense. It's a luxury the team can afford for the time being, though an offer of an early draft pick or a starting-caliber defensive player might persuade the Ravens to sacrifice some TE depth for the potential to score a significant upgrade at another position. Jacksonville and New England are obvious fits for any pass-catching tight end that becomes available this offseason.

    • Judon is expected to receive a...

      Judon is expected to receive a franchise tag, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: Judon is the only reasonable candidate for Baltimore this offseason, coming off a 2019 campaign with career highs for sacks (9.5), QB hits (33) and forced fumbles (four). His representatives likely will argue that his fourth-in-the-league total for QB hits shows pass-rushing ability beyond the sack numbers, while Baltimore's front office can argue that Judon was aided by the team's league-high blitz rate (54.9 percent) and excellent secondary. Regardless of how the arguments play out, Judon presumably will want a contract exceeding that of former teammate Za'Darius Smith, who signed with Green Bay last offseason for four years and $66 million, though just 30.3 percent was fully guaranteed. There already have been some rumors that the Ravens could opt for a tag-and-trade if Judon won't take a team-friendly deal.

    • Brown isn't likely to re-sign with...

      Brown isn't likely to re-sign with Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

      Analysis: Brown signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason and made it through both years of his deal. He started six of his 30 regular-season games and averaged just 24.2 offensive snaps per contest, catching 30 of 47 targets for 386 yards and seven touchdowns. Brown isn't likely to find a top-three WR role as a 30-year-old free agent, but his ability to contribute on special teams and in the red zone could lead to some interest for a depth job. Meanwhile, the Seahawks don't have a clear No. 3 behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, with options from the current roster including David Moore, Malik Turner, John Ursua and perhaps eventually Josh Gordon (suspension).

      Roethlisberger (elbow) believes he's about two and a half or three months away from receiving full medical clearance, Ron Cook of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

      Analysis: The Steelers posted a short video Saturday of Roethlisberger lofting a pass inside a gym. The quarterback notes he was able to bypass tennis-ball throwing and instead moved right to footballs, but his timeline estimate suggests he won't be ready for strenuous activity any sooner than the end of the offseason program or the beginning of training camp. Roethlisberger will turn 38 in May, looking to rebound from Sept. 23 surgery to repair a torn muscle in his throwing elbow. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert both have been straightforward about the expectation of Roethlisberger being ready for Week 1.
