1.Neiko Thorpe: Re-ups with Seahawks (RotoWire) Thorpe re-signed with the Seahawks on Saturday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Analysis: That's now seven cornerbacks on the Seahawks' roster entering the 2019 season. Thorpe was a special teams dynamo last season, acting as the team's co-captain while recording seven tackles across 266 snaps.4 hours
2.Malcolm Mitchell: Officially announces retirement (RotoWire) Mitchell officially announced his retirement at a University of Georgia event on Friday, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. Analysis: Mitchell wasn't able to play in a NFL game since his heroics during Super Bowl LI, as knee injuries effectively ended his career. The 2016 fourth-round pick will be fondly remembered by Patriots fans after tallying six catches for 70 yards in the aforementioned come-from-behind Super Bowl win, capping off a rookie season in which he caught 32 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns.4 hours
3.Kraft issues statement on legal situatio... (Rotoworld) Patriots owner Robert Kraft issued a statement in response to charges against him in the Florida prostitution case. Analysis: The full statement can be viewed in the link. Kraft doesn't admit to anything, but this comes one day after prosecutors denied his legal team's request to stop the alleged video from going public. The league has stayed quiet on the Kraft situation, but there's still a lot of fallout to come from this. As we've seen with ex-Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, SpaGate has potential to get messy for both Kraft and the NFL.7 hours
4.Malcolm Mitchell retires from NFL (Rotoworld) Free agent WR Malcolm Mitchell has retired. Analysis: There had been rumblings Mitchell was considering retirement after 10 knee surgeries. Mitchell made an impact as a 2016 rookie, catching 32 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games and playing a major role in New England's Super Bowl comeback. He hadn't seen the field since, and was released from the Patriots last year. Mitchell is a published author and looks to have a bright post-NFL career.7 hours
5.Hunter Henry (knee) on track for OTAs (Rotoworld) Hunter Henry (knee) is expected to be ready for OTAs. Analysis: This wasn't in doubt after Henry returned for the Divisional Round. It confirms Henry hasn't had any setbacks and will get in a full offseason. Coming off a lost year, Henry is a post-hype sleeper in an offense that has room for targets after moving on from Tyrell Williams.8 hours
6.Anderson doesn't expect to be back with ... (Rotoworld) Free agent C.J. Anderson doesn't expect to re-sign with the Rams. Analysis: Anderson proved he had something left in an unexpected stretch run with Todd Gurley injured, but the Rams matching Detroit's offer sheet for Malcolm Brown likely rules out him returning. His conditioning remained an issue despite his late year success. There's been no interest in Anderson to this point, but he showed enough to resurface.10 hours
7.Eagles RG Brandon Brooks out of walking ... (Rotoworld) Eagles RG Brandon Brooks (Achilles) has shed his walking boot. Analysis: Brooks is two months into a 6-8 month timetable after tearing his Achilles in the Divisional Round. He'll miss all of OTAs and is a candidate to open training camp on the active/PUP list. Brooks remains questionable for Week 1.11 hours
8.Chris Gragg works out for 49ers (Rotoworld) Free agent TE Chris Gragg worked out for the 49ers. Analysis: Gragg missed all of 2016 with a torn ACL and was out of the league last year. He had just 24 career catches in four seasons with Buffalo, but Gragg's never lacked for upside. Gragg would be just an end-of-roster flyer.12 hours
9.Rashaan Melvin signs one-year deal with ... (Rotoworld) Lions signed CB Rashaan Melvin to a one-year, $3.5 million contract. Analysis: An outside corner with size, Melvin was miscast in Oakland's Cover-2 last year. He made just seven starts and wasn't effective for the 59 percent of snaps he was on the field. Melvin is a better fit in Detroit's multiple scheme — he played under Matt Patricia with the Patriots in 2015. With Nevin Lawson gone, this gives the Lions a veteran fallback on opposite Darius Slay.1 day
10.Texans sign ex-Panthers LT Matt Kalil (Rotoworld) Texans signed LT Matt Kalil to a one-year contract.1 day
11.Free agent Al Woods visits with Lions (Rotoworld) Free agent Al Woods visited the Lions. Analysis: Woods had a scaled back role last year after being a 16-game starter for the Colts in 2017. He graded above average as a run stopper at PFF over 375 snaps. The Lions are expected to keep the same scheme under new DC Paul Pasqualoni, but a nose tackle like Woods would allow them to stay multiple.1 day
12.Mike Glennon: Signed by Oakland (RotoWire) Glennon was signed by the Raiders on Friday. Analysis: The Raiders have targeted a 29-year-old veteran with starting experience in Glennon to serve as Derek Carr's backup, though Nathan Peterman also plans to fight for a roster spot throughout the offseason. Glennon completed 15 of 21 passes for 174 yards and a score in two games with the Cardinals last season, but his overall resume as a pro includes 22 career starts as well.1 day
13.Maurice Alexander: Headed to Buffalo (RotoWire) Alexander signed a one-year, $1.375 million contract with the Bills on Friday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Alexander played 131 snaps on special teams for the Seahawks last season, but didn't see the field on defense in nine games. He'll provide depth at safety in Buffalo behind the starting duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.1 day
14.Kerry Wynn: Signs with Cincy (RotoWire) Wynn signed a one-year contract with the Bengals on Friday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Wynn collected just 4.5 sacks in five seasons with the Giants, but he was a valuable contributor on special teams and will provide the Bengals with some depth and versatility along the defensive line as well.1 day
15.Kemoko Turay: Figures to come off bench (RotoWire) Turay will likely come off the bench at defensive end following the Colts' signing of edge rusher Justin Houston, Joel Erickson of IndyStar.com reports. Analysis: Turay racked up four sacks and 15 tackles in 385 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2018, but Houston figures to replace Turay in the starting lineup across from Jabaal Sheard. Turay played less than 25 snaps in each of his last seven contests, however, so his role was already somewhat diminished near the end of the 2018 campaign.1 day
16.Tyquan Lewis: May shift to DT (RotoWire) Lewis (knee) may shift over to play the 3-technique defensive tackle position following the Colts' signing of edge rusher Justin Houston, Joel Erickson of IndyStar.com reports. Analysis: Lewis was originally expected to serve in a 3-technique role as a rookie before the Colts were forced to keep him on the end due to depth concerns. With Houston now in the mix along the defensive line, Lewis can join a DT corps that includes Margus Hunt and Denico Autry.1 day
17.Tyler Shatley has visit with Vikings (Rotoworld) Free agent OL Tyler Shatley visited the Vikings. Analysis: He left without a deal. Shatley made semi-regular starts for Jacksonville the last three seasons and can play every spot on the interior line. Even after signing Josh Kline, the Vikings could use depth on their offensive line.1 day
18.Ricardo Louis: Misses all of 2018 (RotoWire) Louis (neck) spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve, Nick Shook of the Browns' official website reports. Analysis: Louis had neck surgery last summer and was never expected to play in 2018. It isn't clear if the 2016 fourth-round pick will be able to resume his football career, as the Browns haven't provided an update on his progress. If he does end up playing, Louis will face tough competition for a roster spot on a team that now has Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins atop the depth chart at wide receiver.1 day
19.Mike Glennon signs with Raiders (Rotoworld) Raiders signed QB Mike Glennon. Analysis: Glennon spent last year behind Josh Rosen after Sam Bradford's release. He's replacing A.J. McCarron in Oakland. Glennon has size and starting experience, but he's a middling backup.1 day
20.Bengals strike deal with ex-Giant Kerry ... (Rotoworld) Bengals signed DE Kerry Wynn, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract. Analysis: The Giants were interested in bringing him back, but ultimately he opted for a fresh start in Cincinnati. Wynn collected 39 tackles, two forced fumbles, and 1.5 sacks over 393 defensive snaps last year while also contributing on special teams. The versatile 28-year-old can line up anywhere on the defensive line.1 day
21.Bills bring in S Maurice Alexander (Rotoworld) Bills signed S Maurice Alexander, formerly of the Seahawks, to a one-year, $1.375 million contract. Analysis: The Bills will be his third team in as many seasons. Alexander has made 23 starts at safety in his career but is most known for his special teams contributions. That should be the case again in Buffalo.1 day
22.Quinton Spain meets with Bills (Rotoworld) Free agent OG Quinton Spain visited the Bills.1 day
23.Allen Hurns: Not assured of role (RotoWire) Hurns (ankle) may be left without a role after the Cowboys signed slot receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year, $5 million contract, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: The reported value of Cobb's contract is equal to the amount of cap space the Cowboys can free up if Hurns is released before Week 1. Coming off a disappointing Dallas debut that ended with a dislocated ankle in the playoffs, Hurns may need to accept a pay cut to make it to the second season of his two-year contract. The 27-year-old currently projects as the team's No. 4 wide receiver, with Cobb handling the slot while Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup take mo... (More)1 day
24.Colts host ex-Bronco Shane Ray (Rotoworld) Free agent OLB Shane Ray visited the Colts on Friday. Analysis: The Colts already addressed their pass-rushing need by adding Justin Houston, but apparently they're not finished. Ray showed flashes during his time in Denver, though he never lived up to his first-round billing. Still, the Mizzou alum does have an eight-sack season on his resume and could benefit from a change of scenery.1 day
25.Aldrick Robinson: Still available in free agency (RotoWire) Robinson remains unsigned as an unrestricted free agent, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Robinson is actually one of the better wide receivers left in a thin market, coming off a 2018 campaign with 17 catches for 231 yards and five touchdowns on 35 targets in 14 games for the Vikings. He's typically struggled when tasked with a large workload, but his career stat line -- 16.5 yards per catch, 14 TDs among 86 receptions -- suggests he can give an offense a boost as a big-play weapon from the No. 4 receiver role. Granted, the 30-year-old doesn't offer much value on special teams, and his career catch rate (47.8 perce... (More)1 day
26.Report: Julio to become highest-paid wid... (Rotoworld) According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, the Falcons are "closing in" on a contract extension with Julio Jones. Analysis: Julio will reportedly net $20 million annually on what is expected to be a four-or-five-year deal, making him the league's highest-paid receiver on a per year basis. Per Freeman, the contract will also include $50-60 million in new guarantees. Jones expressed frustration with his contract last year, avoiding team activities until training camp, when the two sides finally agreed to a restructure. The 30-year-old Alabama product easily led the league in receiving yard... (More)1 day
27.Buffalo takes flyer on TE Jake Fisher (Rotoworld) Bills signed TE Jake Fisher, formerly of the Bengals, to a one-year contract. Analysis: Fisher also worked out for Houston and Washington before committing to the Bills. The 2015 second-rounder spent the first four years of his career at tackle but will pivot to tight end in Buffalo. After throwing in the towel on underachiever Charles Clay, Bills have filled their tight end void by adding both Fisher and his former Bengals teammate, Tyler Kroft, this offseason.1 day
28.McShay: Drew Lock could go in top-10 pic... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Todd McShay reports Missouri QB Drew Lock could go in the top-10 picks. Analysis: Lock improved his stock at his Pro Day, showcasing arm strength and his ability to make difficult throws. He has visits with the Giants, Lions, and Broncos — all teams that pick in the top-10. There's time for things to change, but Lock has moved ahead of Daniel Jones as the consensus third-ranked quarterback behind Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins. Lock is one of the bigger risers leading up to the draft. 1 day
29.Adam Jones accepts plea deal following a... (Rotoworld) Free agent CB Adam Jones has accepted a plea deal following his arrest at an Indiana casino last month. Analysis: Jones allegedly threatened to kill an Indiana Gaming Commission Enforcement agent after he was accused of adding chips to a winning bet during a casino visit on February 27. Prior to his plea deal, the former sixth overall pick faced charges of attempted theft, battery against a public safety official, cheating at gambling, disorderly conduct, intimidation, public intoxication and two counts of resisting law enforcement. Pacman played sparingly (37 snaps in seven games) during a three-mon... (More)1 day
30.'Most believe' Jets will draft OLB Josh ... (Rotoworld) According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, "most believe" the Jets will select Kentucky OLB Josh Allen with the third overall pick in April's draft. Analysis: That's assuming New York keeps the pick instead of trading back, which remains a possibility (a quarterback-needy team like Denver or Miami could look to move into the top-three). Despite tapping Gregg Williams (who comes from a 4-3 background) as D coordinator, the Jets are expected to stand pat with the 3-4 scheme they used under Todd Bowles. A native of nearby Montclair, New Jersey, the 21-year-old makes a ton of sense for the Jets, who ranked near the bottom of the league in most defe... (More)1 day
31.Anthony Sherman: Staying in KC (RotoWire) Sherman is signing a one-year contract to stay with the Chiefs, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Sherman has played seven consecutive 16-game seasons as the top fullback in Kansas City, but his workload bottomed out at 98 offensive snaps in 2018. He did catch eight of nine targets for 96 yards and a touchdown, while his 345 snaps on special teams ranked second on the Chiefs.1 day
32.Samaje Perine: Facing tough roster odds (RotoWire) Perine is stuck in a crowded backfield with Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports. Analysis: Guice's tricky rehab from a torn ACL and subsequent infection is the complicating factor, potentially opening a door for Perine, Byron Marshall or Russell Hansbrough to earn a role. Even so, it's hard to see how Perine fits the plan in Washington, considering he logged just 30 snaps on offense and 39 on special teams in 2018. The 2017 fourth-round pick will have a tough time earning a spot on the 53-man roster unless he establishes value as a blocker and coverage man on special t... (More)1 day
33.Chiefs keep FB Sherman with one-year dea... (Rotoworld) Chiefs re-signed FB Anthony Sherman to a one-year contract. Analysis: Sherman is one of the best fullbacks in the league. Only a handful of teams still use one. Sherman also is a fixture on special teams for Kansas City.1 day
34.Curtis Riley: Signs one-year deal with Oakland (RotoWire) Riley is signing a one-year contract with the Raiders, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Analysis: Riley went undrafted in 2015 and barely played until 2018, but he emerged as a 16-game starter for the Giants last season, piling up 75 tackles (63 solo), five passes defensed and four interceptions (including one for a TD). He was far less reliable than the stat line suggests, as Pro Football Focus charged him with the most missed tackles (23) of any defensive back in the NFL. The Raiders signed fellow safety Lamarcus Joyner to a much larger contract earlier this offseason, but it won't come as any surprise if he takes most o... (More)1 day
35.Glazer: Tyreek came up in trade talks ea... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jay Glazer reports there "were some rumblings" earlier in the offseason about Tyreek Hill's name coming up in trade conversations. Analysis: Glazer reports it likely had more to do with Hill's contract status as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. This was all before Hill's name came up in a report that he's being investigated for alleged battery against his three-year-old son who was left with a broken arm. That situation has been quiet for the past seven days. Hill would now seem tough to trade amid this off-field drama. We doubt the Chiefs really even wanted ... (More)1 day
36.Lions re-signed G/T Andrew Donnal (Rotoworld) Lions re-signed G/T Andrew Donnal. Analysis: A former fifth-round pick of the Rams in 2015, Donnal didn't play a single offensive snap for the Lions last year after previously being claimed off waivers. They apparently like him enough to bring Donnal back to compete for a job.1 day
37.Samson Ebukam: Recovering from knee surgery (RotoWire) Ebukam is recovering from a minor knee surgery and likely will be brought along slowly this spring, Gary Klein of The Los Angeles Times reports. Analysis: The 2017 fourth-round pick started 14 of 16 games at outside linebacker in his second pro season, notching 40 tackles (25 solo), three sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. It sounds like Ebukam will be healthy before the start of training camp, but he may face some competition for a starting job after the Rams signed Clay Matthews to a two-year, $9.25 million contract. It's also possible the Rams use Matthews and Ebukam as their starting OLBs, with Dante Fowle... (More)1 day
38.C.J. Anderson: Expects to find new team (RotoWire) Anderson suggested Friday on Twitter that he doesn't expect to re-sign with the Rams. Analysis: While it isn't clear the two events are related, Anderson's tweet was posted about an hour after Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Rams will match Detroit's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet for running back Malcolm Brown, who missed Weeks 14-17 and all of the playoffs after he suffered a broken clavicle in early December. His injury opened the door for the Rams to sign Anderson, who then took over the starting gig when Todd Gurley (knee) suffered an injury of his own. Anderson's strong performance in December theoretically boosted his value, ... (More)1 day
39.Raiders add former Giants S Curtis Riley (Rotoworld) Raiders signed S Curtis Riley, formerly of the Giants. Analysis: Riley started all 16 games for the G-Men last year, playing the fourth-most snaps among all safeties in the league. He picked off four passes but also received dreadful marks from Pro Football Focus, finishing as their No. 85 safety out of 89 qualifiers. He was particularly poor against the run. With Lamarcus Joyner expected to be the Raiders' primary nickel corner, Riley may play significant snaps on the back end next to Karl Joseph.1 day
40.Browns sign OG Bryan Witzmann (Rotoworld) Browns signed OG Bryan Witzmann, formerly of the Bears. Analysis: Witzmann started seven games at right guard in place of an injured Kyle Long with the Bears last season and was an obvious weak link there. Prior to that, Witzmann was the Chiefs' left guard in 2017. He amassed poor marks from Pro Football Focus in Kansas City as well. Witzmann, 29 in June, will compete for a reserve job.1 day
41.Justin Houston: Ready to play defensive end (RotoWire) Houston will play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme under Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Joel Erickson and Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. Analysis: Houston has spent his entire career playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense for Kansas City, piling up 78.5 sacks in 102 games despite handling some coverage responsibilities. He said his job should be easier in a scheme that allows him to attack the quarterback on every pass play, and he already has plenty of experience lining up with his hand on the ground in nickel and dime packages. Coming off a 2018 campaign with nine sacks and five forced fumbles in 12 regular-season ga... (More)1 day
42.Morgan Burnett: Soon to be released (RotoWire) The Steelers informed Burnett he will be released before Apr. 1, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Pittsburgh planned to release the 30-year-old safety this past Wednesday but will wait another week because of an accounting issue. Regardless of when it happens, Burnett figures to have trouble finding a starting job on the open market, as he hasn't played a 16-game season since 2012 and struggled in coverage the past couple years. It wasn't so long ago that Burnett was the top tackle compiler among all defensive backs, averaging 7.6 per game in 60 appearances from 2011 to 2014.1 day
43.Malcolm Brown: Staying in Los Angeles (RotoWire) The Rams are matching Brown's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet from the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The decision to use a low tender ultimately worked out in the Rams' favor, as they now have Brown under contract for two years at approximately the same cost as a second-round tender ($3.1 million) for one season. With C.J. Anderson unsigned and the draft still to come, Brown may eventually get some competition for the No. 2 running back spot -- a job that becomes rather interesting with the long-term stability of Todd Gurley's left knee now in question. Meanwhile, the Lions will need to look elsewhere in their search t... (More)1 day
44.Rams OLB Ebukam coming off knee surgery (Rotoworld) Rams OLB Samson Ebukam underwent knee surgery after the season and will be sidelined until training camp. Analysis: Ebukam hasn't missed a game since being a fourth-round pick in 2017. He has just five sacks through two seasons after being drafted as a favorite of DC Wade Phillips. The Rams re-signed OLB Dante Fowler and gave edge rusher Clay Matthews a two-year deal this week. The two of them and Ebukam figure to form the Rams' main trio off the edge this year.1 day
45.Rams match Lions' $3.25M sheet on RB Bro... (Rotoworld) Rams re-signed RB Malcolm Brown to a two-year, $3.25 million contract. Analysis: The Lions signed Brown to the offer sheet earlier in the week, and the Rams chose to match it with Brown being a restricted free agent. Brown has played well in very limited snaps behind Todd Gurley the last two seasons, but he was also running behind one of the league's best run-blocking offensive lines. With Gurley's knee now an issue, perhaps Brown will see more work moving forward. C.J. Anderson is still a free agent, though, and the Rams could bring him back.1 day
46.Steelers releasing S Burnett, saving $5M... (Rotoworld) Steelers released S Morgan Burnett. Analysis: Burnett wanted out of Pittsburgh much earlier in the offseason, and now he will find a limited market with most teams already landing on safeties a couple weeks back. Burnett played out of position in Pittsburgh last year as a dime linebacker. He just turned 30 in January.1 day
47.Jordan Reed working out with teammates (Rotoworld) Jordan Reed (toe) has been working out with teammates this offseason. Analysis: Reed missed the final two weeks on injured reserve. He managed to play in 13 games, but 2018 was another letdown year. Reed should be fully healthy for OTAs.1 day
48.Kerry Wynn visits with Bengals (Rotoworld) Free agent DE Kerry Wynn visited with the Bengals. Analysis: Wynn has spent that last two years as semi-regular starter in New York. He's a situational run stopper that shouldn't get much higher than the veteran minimum. The Giants also have interest in bringing Wynn back.1 day
49.Jake Fisher works out for Buffalo (Rotoworld) Free agent Jake Fisher will work out for the Bills. Analysis: Fisher already had workouts with the Texans and Washington. He's yet to land a deal, but there's enough interest for Fisher to eventually resurface. With Charles Clay gone, the Bills have some open spots at tight end.1 day
50.Stephen Gostkowski: Progressing on new contract (RotoWire) The Patriots and Gostkowski are making progress with negotiations on a new contract, Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston reports. Analysis: Despite finishing in the top 10 in points scored 11 times in his 13 seasons, Gostkowski wasn't extended the franchise tag by the deadline like he was in 2015. The Patriots' decision left him free to explore all options once the new league year started March 13, but it appears as if he'll stick with the only organization he's ever known.2 days
51.Curtis Riley: Visits Bengals Thursday (RotoWire) Riley visited with the Bengals on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Some teams have shown interest in Riley, though the young safety has been weighing all of his options before deciding on a final free agency destination. He's coming off a 2018 season that saw him record 75 tackles and four interceptions while starting all 16 games for the Giants. If he does sign with the Bengals he'll likely slot in as one of the teams starting safeties.2 days
52.Patriots making progress with Gostkowski (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Boston reports the Patriots have made progress in contract talks with free agent Stephen Gostkowski. Analysis: The Patriots didn't franchise Gostkowski, but re-signing him has always been in their plans. Gostkowski's asking price has been the sticking point. Gostkowski signed a four-year, $17.2 million extension back in 2015 but the Patriots are hoping to bring him back for less.2 days
53.Bryan Cox: Re-signs with Panthers (RotoWire) Cox signed a contract with the Panthers on Thursday. Analysis: Cox has served as a backup defensive lineman for the Panthers through his first-two seasons, totaling 16 tackles and a fumble recovery across 18 games in that span. He'll figure to operate as a depth lineman and special teams player once again in 2019.2 days
54.Marcus Sherels: Signs with Saints (RotoWire) Sherels signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Sherels had spent his entire nine-year career with the Vikings prior to signing with the Saints. A backup for most of his career, he'll figure to provide the Saints secondary depth while also contributing on special teams.2 days
55.Mike Hull: Re-signs with Miami (RotoWire) Hull signed a contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports. Analysis: Hull joined the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has been a backup linebacker for the team ever since. He missed the first eight games of 2018 due to a knee injury and was only able to record nine tackles (seven solo) in eight contests once he returned. He'll likely be a depth linebacker and special teams player once again in 2019.2 days
56.Josh Tupou: Signs one-year deal with Bengals (RotoWire) Tupou signed a one-year contract with Cincinnati on Thursday. Analysis: Tupou was tendered by the Bengals earlier in March and his signing was expected. He's coming off an injury shortened season that saw him record nine tackles (six solo) in six games. Healthy once again, he'll look to carve out a larger role for himself in 2019.2 days
57.James O'Shaughnessy: Re-signs with Jaguars (RotoWire) O'shaughnessy signed a contract with Jacksonville on Thursday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Analysis: O'Shaughnessy will be entering his fifth season in 2019 and his third with the Jaguars. He hasn't had much of a roll in the passing game thus far in his career. He recorded 214 yards on 24 catches, both career highs, while playing in 14 games last season. He'll likely operate as a blocker and backup tight end once again in 2019.2 days
58.Dynasty | Jared Cook to sign with New Orleans (Dynasty League Football) Jared Cook is close to signing with the New Orleans Saints. Analysis: The landing spot is certainly a good one on paper as Cook will attempt to fill the shoes left open ever since Jimmy Graham left town so many years ago. The Saints have been able to get by with players like Josh Hill and Ben Watson, but Cook is clearly an upgrade for them, He had a career season with the Raiders last year, posting a 68/896/6 line in the process. While owners shouldn't expect Graham-like production, Cook is a good bet to post back-end TE1 numbers in an offense as explos... (More)2 days
59.Ricky Seals-Jones: Remains with Cardinals (RotoWire) Seals-Jones (neck) officially signed his one-year tender with the Cardinals on Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: With just two accrued seasons, Seals-Jones was an exclusive rights free agent and didn't have any choice but to re-sign with the Cardinals. So far this offseason, management has exchanged one veteran tight end (Jermaine Gresham) for another (Charles Clay). Clay has a track record as a modest pass-catching option, but Seals-Jones has shown promise in his career, including 11.8 YPC and four touchdowns on his 46 career receptions.2 days
60.Hunter Henry: Slated for rehab-free offseason (RotoWire) General manager Tom Telesco recently said Henry (knee) is on track to be ready for the first day of OTAs, Al Butler of United Press International reports. Analysis: Henry tore his ACL in OTAs last offseason and remarkably made it back to log 14 snaps in the Chargers' lone playoff game this past winter. The tight end admitted he wasn't 100 percent at that point, though, and his lowly playing time clearly reflected that. However, it's still notable that he didn't suffer any significant setbacks, and it appears he'll have a full, rehab-free offseason to prepare for the 2019 campaign.2 days
61.Zach Miller: Remains under Chicago control (RotoWire) Miller is under contract with the Bears on a one-year, $645,000 contract in 2019, Aaron Leming of 247Sports reports. Analysis: There hasn't been news of Miller re-upping with Chicago, but it's possible a clause in the one-year contract the tight end signed last offseason may have kept him under Bears control for another year Recovering from an extremely severe knee injury, Miller still has a long way to go before returning to the football but will seemingly be able to work out at the Bears' facility in the meantime.2 days
62.Jordan Reed: Working out with teammates (RotoWire) Running back Adrian Peterson said Reed (foot) has been working out with him in Houston this offseason, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports. Analysis: This news bodes well for Reed's availability for offseason workouts after he finished last season on injured reserve with a sprained foot. However, it isn't clear if Reed is participating under any limitations, and it's possible the Redskins could keep the oft-injured tight end under bubble wrap this spring and summer regardless.2 days
63.Sherels signs one-year deal with Saints (Rotoworld) Saints signed CB Marcus Sherels to a one-year contract. Analysis: Sherels is a top punt returner, averaging 12.0 yards per return last season. He'll assume that role in New Orleans. Sherels is a solid get for the Saints but isn't going to see many defensive snaps.2 days
64.George Iloka to meet with Cowboys this w... (Rotoworld) Free agent S George Iloka will visit with the Cowboys on Friday. Analysis: Iloka left his Raiders visit without a deal. The Cowboys are one of the most safety needy teams in the league, but Iloka is likely a fallback to free agent Eric Berry. Iloka played just 116 snaps in a rotational role with Minnesota last year.2 days
65.Justin Houston: Signing with Indianapolis (RotoWire) Houston agreed to a two-year, $24 million contract with the Colts on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The Colts haven't made many high-profile free-agent splashes under GM Chris Ballard, but it appears they've reeled in a quality piece to their pass-rush rotation. The 30-year-old Houston has racked up 78.5 sacks in only 102 career games -- including nine sacks in 12 contests last season -- and should team up with 2018 first-team All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard to form one of the more imposing edge tandems league-wide in Indianapolis.2 days
66.Andrew Turzilli: Playing in CFL (RotoWire) Turzilli signed a contract with the CFL's Tiger-Cats on Thursday. Analysis: Turzilli returns to the Tiger-Cats after being let go by the team last May. The 27-year-old last played in the NFL in 2015 with the Titans and will need to take strides in his development in order to return to the league.2 days
67.Dolphins re-sign LB Mike Hull (Rotoworld) Dolphins re-signed LB Mike Hull to a one-year contract. Analysis: Hull missed the first eight weeks with a sprained MCL last year. He returned for the second half to play 191 snaps on special teams. Hull can also backup at inside linebacker behind Raekwon McMillan. He's been with Miami since 2015.2 days
68.Robert Griffin: Returning to Baltimore (RotoWire) The Ravens re-signed Griffin on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: After moving on from longtime signal-caller Joe Flacco, Baltimore will keep Griffin around as a veteran sounding board for Lamar Jackson, who officially took the reigns of the offense in Week 11 last season and didn't let go. Griffin himself acted as the active backup for Jackson during the second half of the schedule and made three brief appearances. With the development of Jackson in mind, Griffin will receive spot duty and little else in 2019.2 days
69.O.J. Howard: Runs routes for Mahomes (RotoWire) Howard (ankle) was seen running routes for Patrick Mahomes in Fort Worth, Texas on Thursday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Both of Howard's first two seasons as a pro were cut short by injuries to his right ankle and/or foot, limiting him to 24 of a possible 32 appearances. With 16.6 yards per catch, 11.5 yards per target and an 18.3 percent touchdown rate (11 TDs on 60 receptions) in his career, he's been dynamic when on the field and now will be operating under new coach Bruce Arians. Assuming he can stay healthy in 2019, Howard is a breakout candidate by any measure.2 days
70.Rico Gathers gets deferred adjudication (Rotoworld) Cowboys TE Rico Gathers reached a deal on his misdemeanor drug charge. Analysis: Gathers was arrested last September. As part of the deal, Gathers will get 90-days deferred adjudication and pay a $99 fine and court costs. It is a minor legal situation, but Gathers could end up facing a suspension.2 days
71.Justin Houston signs with Colts (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports former Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is signing with the Colts. Analysis: Adam Schefter of ESPN adds the deal will be for two years and $24 million. Houston was released by the Chiefs earlier this off-season since they could free up $14 million in cap space by doing so. The 30-year-old certainly helps beef up Indy's defense.2 days
72.Colts add pass rusher Houston for 2-yr, ... (Rotoworld) Colts signed EDGE Justin Houston, formerly of the Chiefs, to a two-year, $24 million contract. Analysis: The Colts easily had the most cap space available, and they are using some of it to fill one of their top offseason needs. Houston has struggled a bit with injuries in recent years, but he recorded nine sacks in 719 snaps last year and has 18.5 over the last two years. Even if just in a rotational role, Houston should be a big upgrade to Indy's pass rush.2 days
73.Logan Thomas: Returning to Detroit (RotoWire) Thomas signed a contract with the Lions on Thursday. Analysis: Thomas comes back to the Lions after spending two years with the Bills, who signed the former Virginia Tech quarterback off Detroit's practice squad in November 2016. He presumably will spend this offseason trying to push Michael Roberts for the No. 2 job at tight end behind Jesse James, though it's possible the Lions could add more competition via the upcoming draft that has a strong class at the position.2 days
74.Robert Griffin re-signs with Ravens (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Ravens are re-signing quarterback Robert Griffin. Analysis: Griffin was reportedly a great influence on Lamar Jackson last year, and he'll continue to serve as a mentor for him in 2019.2 days
75.Justin Hardy: Sticking with Falcons (RotoWire) The Falcons re-signed Hardy on Thursday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports. Analysis: A four-year veteran, Hardy has played a bit role at receiver for the Falcons, totaling 76 catches (on 118 targets) for 751 yards and nine touchdowns in 41 games. He does hold some sway as a returner, but the signing of Kenjon Barner indicates Hardy will have competition for those spots on the depth chart in 2019.2 days
76.Ravens, Robert Griffin III agree to 2-yr... (Rotoworld) Ravens re-signed Robert Griffin III to a two-year contract. Analysis: Griffin went into the market looking for something more than a backup role, but those jobs quickly dried up. He will return to Baltimore to serve as Lamar Jackson's backup.2 days
77.Darqueze Dennard: Re-ups with Bengals (RotoWire) The Bengals re-signed Dennard on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: The two sides agreed to terms of a contract shortly after a report that the Bengals and Chiefs, among other teams, were inquiring about Dennard's services. With an increased snap count the last two seasons, he averaged 5.3 tackles per game while accumulating two interceptions (one pick-six), two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 29 appearances. Expect Dennard to return to his role manning slot corner in Cincinnati.2 days
78.Darqueze Dennard: May find home soon (RotoWire) Dennard has garnered interest from the Bengals, Chiefs and one more team as an unrestricted free agent, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Not coincidentally, Dennard's most productive seasons have come with an increased snap count. Receiving 78.5 of those on defense in 2017 and 59.8 percent last year with the Bengals, he notched 153 tackles, two interceptions (one pick-six), two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery across 29 games. Wherever he lands, Dennard is a good bet to start considering the teams interested in his services.2 days
79.Drew Lock expected to meet with six team... (Rotoworld) Missouri QB Drew Lock said he has met or will meet with the Giants, Dolphins, Redskins, Chargers, Broncos, and Lions. Analysis: The Broncos are the least-surprising team on this list with GM John Elway reportedly "smitten" with Lock, and the Giants, Dolphins, and Redskins have a big need at quarterback. The Lions are a bit of a wild card considering Matthew Stafford is just entering the second season of a five-year extension, but he did struggle last year. Lock is expected to be a first-round pick.2 days
80.Justin Hardy re-signs with Falcons for 1... (Rotoworld) Falcons re-signed WR Justin Hardy to a one-year contract. Analysis: A fourth-round pick by the Falcons back in 2015, Hardy never bettered 221 receiving yards in his first four seasons. He did show well as a punt returner last year, however, and has been a consistent factor on special teams. That should be his primary role moving forward.2 days
81.Kevin Hogan: Re-signing with Denver (RotoWire) Hogan is re-signing with the Broncos, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Analysis: Hogan was allowed to hit free agency after Denver declined to extend him a contract tender, but he's nonetheless returning to the team that claimed him off waivers from Washington last September. He'll compete with Garrett Grayson and possibly a draft pick for the No. 2 role behind Joe Flacco.2 days
82.Ex-Bills TE Logan Thomas joins the Lions (Rotoworld) Lions signed TE Logan Thomas, formerly of the Bills. Analysis: Thomas was not tendered by the Bills as a restricted free agent. The former quarterback will slot in behind newly-signed Jesse James on the depth chart.2 days
83.Jaguars re-sign TE James O'Shaughnessy (Rotoworld) Jaguars re-signed TE James O'Shaughnessy. Analysis: O'Shaughnessy visited the Steelers earlier this week, but he will return to Jacksonville after setting career-highs with 24 catches for 214 yards last season. He will likely be returning to a reserve role.2 days
84.Bengals bringing back CB Darqueze Dennar... (Rotoworld) Bengals re-signed CB Darqueze Dennard. Analysis: Dennard tested the market, even taking a visit with the Chiefs, but he will return to the team which selected him in the first round of the 2014 draft. He will step right back in as the Bengals' slot corner.2 days
85.Raiders add ex-Chiefs OL Jordan Devey (Rotoworld) Raiders signed OL Jordan Devey, formerly of the Chiefs. Analysis: Devey has made some spot starts for the Chiefs over the last three seasons, but he has been mostly a reserve. That should remain the case in Oakland.2 days
86.Ricardo Allen (Achilles') has resumed ru... (Rotoworld) Falcons S Ricardo Allen (Achilles') has resumed running. Analysis: One of several key defenders the Falcons lost last season, Allen tore his Achilles' in Week 3. Resuming running this early in the offseason suggests Allen will be ready for training camp barring a setback. Better health luck alone should allow Atlanta to be better on defense this season.2 days
87.Broncos bring back backup QB Kevin Hogan (Rotoworld) Broncos re-signed QB Kevin Hogan. Analysis: Hogan was originally a restricted free agent, but the Broncos did not offer a tender. He is almost certainly back on a one-year deal for less than the lowest tender. Denver should be looking for more behind Joe Flacco.2 days
88.Darius Philon: Signing with Arizona (RotoWire) Philon is signing a two-year, $10 million contract with the Cardinals, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: Philon will get $5 million guaranteed and his contract can max out at $12 million with incentives. The Arkansas product appeared in all 32 regular-season games for the Chargers the past two seasons (making 13 starts in 2018) and racked up 64 tackles and 8.5 sacks along the way. Now with the Cardinals, Philon will likely slot in as a starter alongside fellow defensive end Robert Nkemdiche and nose tackle Corey Peters.2 days
89.Cameron Meredith: Agrees to pay cut (RotoWire) Meredith (knee) has agreed to a reduced salary to remain with the Saints in 2019, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Meredith was previously set to make $3.4 million in 2019, but that number will now drop to $1.3 million. In the wake of a disappointing 2018 campaign in which the receiver played just six games thanks to knee injuries, Meredith was likely a candidate to be let go if he didn't accept the pay cut. Entering the draft, Meredith doesn't appear to be anything more than the potential No. 4 receiver in New Orleans behind Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan Smith.2 days
90.Joe Webb: Signing with Houston (RotoWire) Webb is returning to Houston on a one-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Webb is an interesting player to have in the fold given his capabilities on both offense and special teams. In addition to serving as a depth quarterback, the 32-year-old also functions as an emergency wide receiver -- which proved useful in 2018 when wideout injuries forced Webb into playing 32 offensive snaps in Week 14 against the Colts. In Houston, Webb is the clear third-string signal-caller behind Deshaun Watson and AJ McCarron.2 days
91.Grier 'riser' who 'put on a show' at Pro... (Rotoworld) An NFL scout told ESPN's Adam Schefter West Virginia QB Will Grier is a "riser" who "put on a show" during his Pro Day Thursday. Analysis: Schefter adds Grier is expected to meet with "at least" 10 teams before the draft "including the Giants, Redskins, Chargers, Pats and Saints." Grier is not getting the same buzz as Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins or even Daniel Jones and Drew Lock, but he was a productive college player with good accuracy. Assuming his stock does not rise too far, he could be a good value option on Day 2.2 days
92.Vinny Curry: Getting one-year deal (RotoWire) Curry is signing a one-year contract with the Eagles, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Analysis: Curry visited with a number of teams since being cut loose from Tampa Bay last month, but he's now officially heading back to the team he won a Super Bowl with just two seasons ago. It's not clear how large a role he'll have in his age-31 season, but Curry nonetheless figures to maintain a key role in the defensive end rotation. His importance would become even more pronounced if Chris Long decides to hang up the cleats.2 days
93.Tavon Wilson takes a $1.15 million pay c... (Rotoworld) Lions S Tavon Wilson took a $1.15 million pay cut. Analysis: Wilson will now earn a $1 million base salary in 2019. Re-signed to a two-year deal last March, Wilson played just 304 snaps on defense last season. With Glover Quin gone, Wilson could play a bigger role on defense this year.2 days
94.Jared Cook: Likely headed to New Orleans (RotoWire) Cook is expected to sign with the Saints, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Cook left New Orleans unsigned after visiting with the team last week. While it isn't clear if the tight end has visited other potential suitors since then, it's becoming clear the tight end has decided on the Saints to continue his playing career. Should Cook ultimately put pen to paper, he'll provide Drew Brees with a nice upgrade at the tight end position -- at least from a receiving perspective.2 days
95.Cards add DT Darius Philon on 2-yr, $10M... (Rotoworld) Cardinals signed DT Darius Philon, formerly of the Chargers, to a two-year, $10 million contract.2 days
96.Texans bring back 'QB' Joe Webb (Rotoworld) Texans re-signed QB/ST Joe Webb to a one-year, $1 million contract. Analysis: Webb is still listed as a quarterback, but he only played 35 snaps on offense last season, all at receiver. He should continue to contribute on special teams.2 days
97.Vinny Curry: Returning to Philly (RotoWire) Curry is nearing a deal to return to the Eagles, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Analysis: Bringing back former fan favorite DeSean Jackson apparently wasn't enough for the Eagles this offseason. With Curry back in the fold, Philadelphia will reunite the same defensive end rotation it had in 2017 when it won the Super Bowl, only this time Curry will have not one, but two, space-eating defensive tackles on the interior in Fletcher Cox and Malik Jackson. In his one-season stint with Tampa Bay in 2018, the then-30-year-old Curry produced 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 12 games.2 days
98.Taylor Hearn apologizes for street fight (Rotoworld) Panthers OL Taylor Hearn issued an apology after a video emerged of him engaged in a street fight. Analysis: On Tuesday, TMZ posted a video showing Hearn involved in a fight on the streets of Augusta, Georgia. "I would like to offer my deepest apologies to the Panthers organization, my teammates and coaches, the fans and the League," Hearn wrote in a statement. "I take full responsibility for my actions. There is no excuse for my behavior, and I will learn from my mistakes." Hearn will likely face a suspension.2 days
99.Tyrone Crawford allegedly involved in fi... (Rotoworld) TMZ Sports reports Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford was involved in a bar fight in Panama City Beach, Florida on March 15. Analysis: A video posted by TMZ appears to show Crawford shoving his way through bouncers and at one point throwing a punch. TMZ reports Crawford "continued to get physical with multiple police officers" who were called to the scene. Crawford was not arrested for the incident and has not been charged with a crime. Even so, it is possible he will face a suspension.2 days
100.Vinny Curry expected to sign with Eagles (Rotoworld) Eagles signed DE Vinny Curry. Analysis: The deal is not yet official, but it has been widely reported, first by The Philly Inquirer's Zach Berman. It is a homecoming for Curry, who was a second-round pick by the Eagles in 2012 and spent six seasons with the team before leaving for Tampa Bay last year. Curry's return gives Philly the same defensive end rotation which helped propel them to the Super Bowl in 2017.2 days
