Keenan Allen Says He Wants To Stay With Chargers

Monday, January 8, 5:31 PM

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen said he wants to stay with the team but also acknowledged all the uncertainty this offseason given the team's salary cap situation. Allen said he'd only be open to playing for a select number of other teams and has prioritized winning at this point in his career. The 31-year-old has one year remaining on his contract with the Bolts but could be cut for around $11.6 million in dead cap space. Cutting him would save LA $23.1 million in cap space for 2024 and also give him a shot to win elsewhere, because that might not be happening anytime soon with the Chargers now once again on the lookout for a new coaching staff after firing Brandon Staley midseason. However, his combination with quarterback Justin Herbert is enticing and paid off for fantasy managers that took Allen in 2023. Despite missing the last four games with a heel injury, Allen finished as a top-10 wideout in half-PPR scoring.

Nico Collins Open To Extension Talks

Monday, February 26, 2:07 PM

Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins made it known that he'd be open to contract-extension talks if the team approached him. After three seasons in the NFL, Collins is now eligible for an extension. He'll be entering the final year of his four-year, $4.871 million rookie contract in 2024, which includes a $902,990 signing bonus and a base salary of $1.324 million this year. "Oh man, I would love that," Collins said when asked about potentially launching early contract discussions. "That would be great." Coming off a breakthrough 2023 campaign in which he caught 80 passes for 1,297 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 regular-season games, Collins will be in high demands in fantasy drafts this fall while paired with impressive young quarterback C.J. Stroud. In two playoff games, Collins had 11 receptions for 164 yards and a touchdown on 17 targets.
