We heard last week that free agent wide receiver Brice Butler has a few visits set up and he’s making one of them on Monday.
Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports that Butler is visiting with the Cardinals. The Seahawks, Bears and Jaguars are the other teams slated for meetings with Butler as he tries to find a new home for the 2018 season.
Second, we’re attributing any changes in performance to coaching, which obviously isn’t accurate. Players can improve their physical capabilities or their skills individually over the offseason.
Those caveats noted, let’s take a look at projections using the multiyear version of ESPN’s real plus-minus (RPM) based on actual minutes played this season and how they compare to teams’ records and Pythagorean expectation given point differential. (All stats are through Friday and projected to 82 games.)
He caught only 25 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in 10 games with the Bills before going on injured reserve last season.
Matthews underwent three surgeries last year. He had thumb surgery in early October. In December, Matthews went back underneath the knife for surgeries on his left knee and right ankle.
A second-round pick of the Eagles in 2014, they traded him to the Bills in exchange for Ronald Darby last year.
Chase Anderson (R), 88 percent, Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs: This comes with an asterisk, as Anderson is showing signs of breaking out, while the Cubs will eventually get it going. Still, if you’re in a close ratio race, it’s defensible to reserve Anderson.
Comparisons to LeBron James rarely work out well for anyone other than James, but Reich’s larger point and the way the Eagles used Zach Ertz during his time as the offensive coordinator in Philadelphia point to a big chance for Ebron to change the narrative on his NFL career.
Floyd spent last season with the Vikings, playing in 11 games and catching 10 passes for 78 yards and no touchdowns.
