The original content and analysis produced by the PFR staff during the past week:
- Rory Parks examined the Steelers’ options with pending free agent running Le’Veon Bell, which include the use of the franchise or transition tag, allowing him to walk without compensation, a trade, or — in the unlikeliest of scenarios — Pittsburgh agreeing to a new deal with Bell.
- In our latest This Date In Transactions History entry, Ben Levine looked back to 2017 when the Dolphins released a pair of failed free agent signees, defensive end Mario Williams and running back Arian Foster.
- Following the Broncos’ acquisition of Joe Flacco, I asked PFR readers if fellow Denver quarterback Case Keenum (who’s now likely to be traded or released) will be a starter in 2019, and if so, where? Most respondents don’t think a club will trust Keenum with a No. 1 role next season, but more than half of voters think the Redskins make sense as a destination.
