      Johnson will be looking to bounce back under a new coaching staff in 2019, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

      Analysis: During Steve Wilks' one-year run as the head coach in Arizona, the Cardinals cycled through Mike McCoy and Byron Leftwich at offensive coordinator, but neither helped Johnson return to form after a lost season in 2017 due to a dislocated left wrist. Overall, Johnson managed just five outings with 100-plus yards from scrimmage and earned five or more targets on six occasions last year after racking up 15 and 14, respectively, during the course of his 2016 breakout. The new coaching staff under Kliff Kingsbury has started to take shape, with James Saxon taking over as running backs coach after working with the likes of Le'Veon Bell, James Conner and Jaylen Samuels in Pittsburgh in recent campaigns. Kingsbury has yet to hire an offensive coordinator, but the presence of Saxon is an early indicator that Johnson is in good hands yet again.

      Jenkins, who racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 20-14 divisional-round loss to the Saints, finished the regular season with 97 tackles (79 solo), a sack, an interception and eight pass breakups.

      Analysis: While most of those numbers have been fairly standard for the 31-year-old over his past few seasons, the tackle total is a big jump up from the 76 he tallied in 2017. The Ohio State product hasn't missed a game in his five years with Philadelphia and should be locked in as the starting strong safety in 2019.

      Rodgers appeared in seven games during his first season in Philadelphia, finishing with one reception for seven yards.

      Analysis: Rodgers was expected to battle rookie Dallas Goedert for the top backup job behind Zach Ertz, but a preseason knee injury undermined the veteran's efforts. By the time Rodgers returned to availability mid-season, Goedert had firmly entrenched himself as the No. 2 tight end. Rodgers never played more than 13 offensive snaps in any of his contests and will now test his luck in free agency this offseason.

      Gibson hauled in just one of his three targets for 48 yards while appearing in 15 games during the regular season.

      Analysis: Gibson saw double-digit offensive snaps in a game just once in 2018. The acquisition of Golden Tate almost completely relegated the West Virginia product to special-teams work in the second half of the campaign. Even with Tate and Mike Wallace (ankle) set to test free agency this offseason, the 23-year-old will still have an uphill battle to securing a meaningful role on offense in 2019.

      Hooper was named to the NFC Pro Bowl roster Tuesday after Zach Ertz withdrew from the event, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: Hooper enjoyed his best professional campaign by a mile in 2018, establishing new career highs in receptions (71), receiving yards (660) and touchdowns (four). As a reliable middle-of-the-field target for Matt Ryan, Hooper found himself well inside starting range among fantasy tight ends, but a plethora of options in the Falcons passing attack prevented him from becoming a truly elite option. With top wideouts Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu all set to return in 2019, Hooper appears poised to once again provide utility, albeit with a lower ceiling than most of the other top talents at the position.
