There is reportedly hope that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can sign wide receiver Chris Godwin to a long-term contract extension prior to Thursday’s deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign extended deals.

Appearing on Sunday morning’s edition of SportsCenter, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said there are “no new developments” as it relates to Godwin signing a new deal.

Fowler noted that the hope it will get done derives from Godwin making it clear he wants to be in Tampa over the long haul and chase more championships. Fowler added that the Bucs have shown a willingness to keep the team that won last season’s Super Bowl intact as well.

The Chicago Bears and wide receiver Allen Robinson reportedly aren’t close to reaching an agreement on a long-term contract prior to Thursday’s deadline for franchise-tagged players.

During an appearance on SportsCenter on Sunday, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said discussions between the Bears and Robinson have been “pretty slow” and there “has not been much momentum.”

Fowler noted there is a “decent chance” Robinson will play out the 2021 season on the franchise tag with the goal of putting up big numbers so he can “smash” free agency in 2022.

The 27-year-old Robinson is set to enter his fourth season with the Bears, and he is coming off back-to-back campaigns with over 1,100 yards.

After recording 98 catches for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns in 2019, he followed it up with 102 grabs for 1,250 yards and six touchdowns last season as the Bears’ unquestioned top wideout.

Former Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer has weighed in on the trade rumors surrounding Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers remains a member of the Green Bay Packers, though it’s unclear if the MVP intends on playing for the NFC North franchise in 2021.

The Packers, meanwhile, are reportedly committed to keeping Rodgers. They are reportedly not entertaining any trade offers. However, the Broncos remain interested in a possible move.
