Matthew Stafford Present At Organized Team Activities

Monday, May 20, 8:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is present at OTAs. The veteran signal-caller wants more money, so there were rumblings he wouldn't attend. He finished last season by throwing for 3,965 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions while completing 62.6% of his passes. Stafford is due to make $31 million guaranteed this year. However, he is only guaranteed $10 million for the remaining two seasons after the 2024-25 campaign. At any rate, Stafford is predicted to be a semi-reliable fantasy option for at least a few more seasons. But his fantasy stock will fall if he doesn't report to training camp if a new deal isn't reached.

Patrick Mahomes To Restructure His Contract

Tuesday, March 12, 7:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be restructuring his contract to create an additional $21.6 million worth of salary cap space for the team in 2024 as they look to become the first team in NFL history to win three straight Super Bowls, according to league sources. The move gives the Chiefs some wiggle room to add some players in free agency. It was rumored on Monday that they were interested in former Chicago Bears wideout Darnell Mooney, but he landed with the Atlanta Falcons in free agency. Kansas City could surely use another receiving weapon to help Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice in the passing game after the team's offense was the weakest its been under Mahomes in 2023. Behind Rice, none of Justin Watson, Skyy Moore, Justyn Ross or Kadarius Toney were reliable targets for Mahomes last year.
