    NFL Player News - Week of 3/12/18

    Courtesy of Footballguys.com


    Redskins | Dustin Hopkins re-ups with Redskins
    Free-agent PK Dustin Hopkins (Redskins) signed an undisclosed deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, March 12.


    Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released
    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year.
    Footballguys view: Peterson played for two teams in 2017 (Saints, Cardinals) and may not have much of a market for his services now that he's available. The veteran back had a cap hit of $3 million that gets cleared away now. He could still return to Arizona later at a lower price.


    Giants | Evan Engram working out
    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ribs) has been catching passes from QB Davis Webb since the season ended.


    Steelers | GM excited for Vance McDonald
    Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said he is excited to see what TE Vance McDonald can do with a full season with the team. 'Having that type of player with us for whole offseason will only enhance their abilities to help us,' McDonald said.


    Lions | DeMarco Murray visiting Detroit
    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) is scheduled to visit with the Detroit Lions Monday, March 12, according to a source.


    Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to stick around

    Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is expected to have his $4 million option for 2018 officially picked up in the next day or two, according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.


    Jets | Three teams eying Austin Seferian-Jenkins?
    The New York Jets 'very much wants to retain' impending free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, but there will be of plenty of competition for his services, as the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons are among the teams expected to pursue him, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.
    Footballguys view: Seferian-Jenkins turned down a low offer from the Jets earlier this offseason. With a few teams interested, he may get a price tag more to his liking.


    Rams | LA Rams trying to keep Sammy Watkins
    The Los Angeles Rams 'are working actively' to retain impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins, and Watkins is open to staying with the team, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.
    Footballguys view: That was the plan when they didn't place the franchise tag on Watkins. Now that he's on the open market, some team out there might bid more than a the Rams are willing to pay. It's a gamble to put him out there, but the Rams are hopeful they can bring him back.


    Patriots | Multiple suitors expected for Dion Lewis
    New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis is expected to receive interest from the New York Jets, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts in free agency this week, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who also mentions the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders as potential suitors.
    Footballguys view: Lewis is arguably the best back on the market. His all-purpose skill set is attractive to teams, especially as the game is evolving to the middle of the field. Guys like Lewis can create mismatches every time he's on the field as a receiver. Oh yeah, he's also a capable runner between the tackles.


    Jaguars | Allen Robinson to have ample suitors
    Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson is expected to attract interest from the San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns in free agency this week, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.
    Footballguys view: Robinson may have to sign a one-year 'prove it' deal like Alshon Jeffery did when he first went to the Eagles. We think the Bears would be a great match for Robinson based on his skill set and their need at the position.


    Patriots | Mike Gillislee likely to return to New England
    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is expected to return to the team in 2018 despite being a healthy scratch for the second half of the season, according to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin.
    Footballguys view
    : The Patriots can still use Gillislee as a battering ram between the tackles. James White will continue to work as a dangerous receiving weapon and change-of-pace back. Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead may both move on in free agency.

    Tuesday Update

    Broncos | Case Keenum likely headed to Denver
    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos shortly after the start of the new league year Wednesday, March 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
    Footballguys view: It's a practical move for the Broncos. They were considering Kirk Cousins but in the end they didn't even offer his representation a contract. Word is Keenum's deal is very team friendly. By going with a cheaper option, the Broncos have the room to be more active in free agency.


    Saints | Drew Brees progressing to deal
    New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees made significant progress on a two-year deal Monday, March 12, and it could be finalized Tuesday, March 13.


    Chiefs | Sammy Watkins agrees with Chiefs
    Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins agreed to a three-year, $48 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday, March 13. The deal includes $30 million guaranteed.


    Bears | Chicago expected to land Allen Robinson
    Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson (knee) intends to sign with the Chicago Bears shortly after the start of the new league year barring any last-minute snags Wednesday, March 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.


    Cardinals | Adrian Peterson says neck is healed
    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said the Arizona Cardinals doctor told him that his neck is 'completely healed' after reviewing scans and that he is 'still looking forward to playing next season.'


    Lions | Lions have interest in Trey Burton
    Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton has drawn interest from the Detroit Lions, who are being considered as one of the 'serious suitors' for his services.


    Colts | Andrew Luck set for checkup
    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is expected back in the team facility this week for a checkup. He has been working in California with quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux and the expectation is that he'll be ready for training camp.


    Texans | Deshaun Watson could be back for OTAs
    Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) appears like he could be ready in time for the start of organized team activities, as 'the expectation' is that 'he will be on the field' when they get underway.


    Jets | Austin Seferian-Jenkins likely leaving NY
    New York Jets impending free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'appears headed to the open market,' a source told Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. The two sides aren't close to an agreement and it is therefore 'highly unlikely' that he returns to the club, according to the source.


    Bears | Chicago eyeing Cody Parkey
    Miami Dolphins impending free-agent PK Cody Parkey has reportedly emerged as the Chicago Bears' top target at his position.


    Dolphins | Miami in the lead to snag Albert Wilson?
    The Miami Dolphins have reportedly emerged as 'a frontrunner' for Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Albert Wilson, who has a 'hotter than expected market,' according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.


    Seahawks | DeMarco Murray could visit Seattle
    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) will reportedly visit the Seattle Seahawks this week, assuming the Detroit Lions don't sign him during his visit Tuesday, March 13.
    Footballguys view: The Seahawks could certainly use help at the position. Murray averaged only 3.6 yards per carry last year and may not be the best answer for Seattle with their need...especially with a great draft class full of talented running backs in the 2018 NFL draft.


    Browns | Duke Johnson working on new deal
    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson has been talking with the team about a new contract, but the two sides has been able to reach an agreement on money.
    Footballguys view: He wants to finish his career with the Browns and the two sides are working towards a long-term deal. The Browns should get a new lead runner through free agency or the draft (Saquan Barkley first overall?) to replace free agent Isaiah Crowell. Johnson will stay as a change-of-pace back for the Browns and continue to have flex appeal for fantasy owners in PPR leagues due to his receiving ability.


    Cardinals | Arizona still in play for Kirk Cousins
    Free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) remains a free-agent option for the Arizona Cardinals.
    Footballguys view: That's cool and everything, but Cousins reportedly wants to go to a contender...something Arizona is a long way from being. Oh yeah, there's the money too. Cousins is likely to get a contract that pays him around $30 million annually and the Cardinals currently have $19.6 million in cap space per OverTheCap.com. They may still be in the running, but they are bringing up the rear behind teams like the Vikings, Broncos and Jets.


    Seahawks | Jimmy Graham deciding between two teams?
    Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is expected to sign with either the New Orleans Saints or the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.
    Footballguys view: Things happen quickly around here. The Saints would like Graham back for a good price as they still have to get QB Drew Brees a new contract. The Packers are likely to be more aggressive in free agency (they may actually make moves!) now that former GM Ted Thompson is in a new role. Graham would make for a fine target for QB Aaron Rodgers.


    Jaguars | Corey Grant receives tender
    Jacksonville Jaguars restricted free-agent RB Corey Grant was given a second-round tender Monday, March 12.
    Footballguys view: This tender puts Grant on the books for $2.9 million in 2018. With Chris Ivory gone, the Jaguars needed to make sure Grant didn't get away. He'll serve as the primary handcuff behind Leonard Fournette and is a valuable change-of-pace back.


    Vikings | Minnesota checks in with Drew Brees
    New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees' agent has been contacted by the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.
    Footballguys view: Zero surprise here as any team in need of a quarterback should check with Brees first. The Vikings may be the front-runners for Kirk Cousins, but Brees would be much better for a team clearly in a Super Bowl window. We think the Saints make it happen with Brees to keep him around, but they've delayed talks so much now that other teams can check in on the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

    49ers | Jerick McKinnon agrees with 49ers
    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon agreed to a four-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, March 14. It's expected to be worth $30 million, according to a source.


    Browns | Darren Fells agrees with Browns
    Detroit Lions impending free-agent TE Darren Fells agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14.


    Saints | More on Drew Brees deal
    Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees receives a $10.5 million signing bonus, a $10.2 million salary and $3.3 million in potential incentives in 2018. His cap number is $24 million.


    Bears | Chase Daniel headed to Bears
    New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel is expected to sign with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 14. He'll receive a two-year, $10 million deal with $7 million guaranteed. The deal is voidable after one year.


    Browns | Carlos Hyde agrees with Browns
    San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Carlos Hyde agreed to a three-year deal with the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14. The deal is worth more than $15 million with $6 million in the first year.


    Lions | Frank Gore set to visit Motor City
    Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Colts) is scheduled to visit with the Detroit Lions later this week, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.


    Raiders | Might cut ties with Michael Crabtree
    The Oakland Raiders might release WR Michael Crabtree if they are able to land free-agent WR Jordy Nelson. If the Raiders release Crabtree it would result in more than $7 million in cash and cap savings.


    Broncos | John Elway still evaluating top QBs
    Denver Broncos president of football operations John Elway will evaluate Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield on Wednesday, March 14, and UCLA QB Josh Rosen on Thursday, March 15. The free-agent deal of QB Case Keenum is for two years, so using the No. 5 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft on a quarterback prospect for Keenum to mentor is still in play.


    Broncos | Denver fields calls on Trevor Siemian
    The Denver Broncos are expected to move on from QB Trevor Siemian, and they have already fielded calls from interested teams, according to a source.


    Giants | Jonathan Stewart contract details
    Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Jonathan Stewart's new contract with the New York Giants is expected to be a two-year deal worth a maximum of $8.4 million. The contract reportedly has a $6.9 million base and contains $2.95 million guaranteed.


    Titans | Dion Lewis contract details
    Updating an earlier report, free-agent RB Dion Lewis (Patriots) agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $20 million - including $3 million in incentives - with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, March 13.


    Raiders | Jordy Nelson to visit Oakland
    Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, March 14, a source said.


    Patriots | Jordy Nelson eyeing New England?
    Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) was aware the Green Bay Packers intended to release him Tuesday, March 13, and has already targeted the New England Patriots as his next team, according to a source.


    Cardinals | Arizona agrees to terms with Mike Glennon
    Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon, who is expected to be released by the team Wednesday, March 14, agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday, March 13.
    Footballguys view: With Sam Bradford under contract, the Cardinals needed to add a veteran backup. Bradford doesn't have a track record of staying healthy, so Glennon may see the field in 2018. Even with two quarterbacks added in free agency, we expect the Cardinals to explore their options at the position in the 2018 NFL draft.


    Ravens | Ryan Grant headed to Baltimore
    Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Ryan Grant agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens on a four-year contract worth $29 million with $14.5 million guaranteed and a $10 million signing bonus Tuesday, March 13.
    Footballguys view: The Ravens continue collecting wide receivers who are average at best. A fifth-round pick out of Tulane in 2014, Grant is coming off a career high 45 catches, 573 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. We'll see if he can do more as likely the Ravens top receiving target in 2018.


    Jets | Teddy Bridgewater set to join NY Jets
    New York Jets impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater has agreed to terms on an undisclosed one-year contract with the New York Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
    Footballguys view
    : Bridgewater has basically missed two years after a devastating knee injury. The Jets re-signed Josh McCown to be their starter, but there should be a point where Bridgewater sees the field. A former first-round pick, Bridgewater is still smart and accurate. It would be a tremendous redemption story if he's able to play up to his potential.

    Thursday Update

    Rams | Robert Woods receives a kickback
    Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods had his contract restructured Thursday, March 15, adding $200,019 to a $3 million roster bonus he is set to receive early on in the league year, according to a league source. Woods had 781 receiving yards last season. If he reached 800, it would have bumped the incentives he earned from $400,000 to $600,000. The team made him a healthy scratch in Week 17 before the playoffs.


    Jaguars | Niles Paul terms
    Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars TE Niles Paul received a two-year, $8.75 million deal.


    Eagles | Zach Ertz restructures
    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz restructured his contract Thursday, March 15, to create $5.407 million in salary cap space. He converted $7.21 million of his $8 million base salary into a fully guaranteed roster bonus.


    Saints | Saints decline tender to Brandon Coleman
    New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman was not tendered by the team, making him an unrestricted free agent.


    Bills | AJ McCarron contract details
    Updating a previous report, new Buffalo Bills QB AJ McCarron will earn at least $10 million over two years with $6.5 million available in incentives.


    Lions | LeGarrette Blount to visit Lions
    Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount is scheduled to visit the Detroit Lions on Friday, March 16.


    Lions | Detroit working on deal with Frank Gore
    Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Colts) is close to reaching a contract agreement with Detroit Lions, according to a source.


    Broncos | More on Trevor Siemian trade
    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian was traded to the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2019 fifth-round pick. The Vikings will also receive a 2018 seventh-round pick in the trade.


    49ers | Jerick McKinnon officially joins 49ers
    Updating previous reports, free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon (Vikings) officially agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated the contract is worth $36.9 million.


    Bears | Taylor Gabriel officially joins Chicago
    Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Taylor Gabriel (Falcons) officially agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated that the contract is worth $26 million.
    Footballguys view: Gabriel is a speedy player who can be dangerous with the ball in his hands as a limited-touch option. He's joining a Bears team that is adding options and has an incredibly creative head coach in Matt Nagy. Gabriel shouldn't do much from a fantasy perspective, but the Bears should be fun to watch in 2018.


    Bears | Trey Burton's deal with Bears official
    Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Trey Burton (Eagles) officially agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated that the contract is worth $32 million.
    Footballguys view: Burton is a do-it-all tight end who can block, catch and even throw (see Philly Special). He'll compete with Adam Shaheen to be the starting tight end for the Bears. Shaheen is a fine talent himself and entering his second season he should be able to do more. The Bears have done a good job of adding quality weapons around young QB Mitchell Trubisky.


    Bears | Allen Robinson agrees to terms with Bears
    Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Allen Robinson (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Robinson is coming off a torn ACL from 2017 but should be ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season. The Bears WR corps was unimpressive, so they had to make a big move and adding Robinson will help. If healthy, Robinson is going to be a target hog in a creative offense under new head coach Matt Nagy.


    Chargers | More on Virgil Green's deal
    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers TE Virgil Green agreed to a three-year deal with the Chargers Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Green is a big-bodied blocker and an underused receiving option. Hunter Henry will be the Chargers lead tight end, limiting Green's potential for production.


    Texans | Bruce Ellington returns to Houston
    Free-agent WR Bruce Ellington (Texans) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Houston Texans Wednesday, March 14, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Ellington is a speedy receiver who can fly down the field. He'll compete for the no3 wideout spot behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller.


    Chiefs | Sammy Watkins' deal with KC official
    Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Rams) officially agreed to terms with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, March 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but an earlier report states that it is a three-year deal worth $48 million.
    Footballguys view: If Watkins can stay healthy, his game seems perfect for young QB Patrick Mahomes. In college at Texas Tech, Mahomes was a gunslinger and wants to stretch the field vertically. Watkins is a vertical threat who will line up opposite Tyreek Hill and give Mahomes a great option. Fantasy owners should proceed with caution when considering Watkins for a couple of reasons. First, his injury history reads like War and Peace. Second, the Chiefs are stacked with offensive talent (Hill, Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce) and that will impact how many opportunities Watkins gets with his new team.


    Broncos | Case Keenum agrees to terms with Denver
    Free-agent QB Case Keenum (Vikings) officially agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Keenum will be the team's starter for 2018 and likely 2019 but after that is a bit of a mystery. If Keenum plays well, then no doubt the Broncos would want to keep him after his two-year contract is up. However, there are too many rumblings about the Broncos having interest in a rookie QB with their no5 pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.


    Jets | Second-round tender for Quincy Enunwa
    New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Quincy Enunwa received the second-round tender offer Wednesday, March 14.
    Footballguys view: An interesting move for a player who missed all of the 2017 season due to neck surgery. The price tag for this tender is $2.9 million and it guarantees he'll be with the Jets as we can't imagine any other team trying to sign him away. This move indicates Enunwa must be recovering well.


    Buccaneers | Chandler Catanzaro contract details
    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Chandler Catanzaro signed a three-year deal with the Buccaneers Wednesday, March 14, worth $9.75 million, according to a source. The deal includes $3.75 million in guaranteed money.


    NFL | Three teams interested in Terrelle Pryor
    Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Redskins) is receiving interest from the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns.
    Footballguys view: The Browns could bring him back to a crowded WR corps and they've still got plenty of money to do it if they want to. The Rams are looking to replace Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) after losing him in free agency.

    Friday Update

    2018 Free Agency First Wave Review


    AFC

    Baltimore
    The Ravens signed WR John Brown (Arizona) to a one-year, five million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: The Ravens wide receiver corps is being rebuilt, with only Chris Moore and Breshad Perriman returning. Brown is a great fit with Joe Flacco’s deep arm and the more intriguing receiver for fantasy despite getting only a “prove it” deal, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy the last two years.

    The Ravens released RB Danny Woodhead and WR Jeremy Maclin.
    Why It Matters: The Woodhead signing went bust when his hamstring popped on the first drive of the 2017 regular season, but his receiving running back skills are more in demand and he should catch on somewhere, with a chance of fantasy value in PPR leagues. Maclin has been on the decline since 2015 and might be relegated to a reserve role on his next team if the receiver-poor Ravens couldn’t justify paying him a modest amount by 2018 starting wide receiver standards.

    Buffalo
    The Bills signed DT Star Lotulelei (Carolina) to a five-year deal.
    Why It Matters: The Bills run defense fell apart after they traded Marcell Dareus to Jacksonville. Lotulelei will be reunited with his old defense coordinator Sean McDermott, now head coach of the Bills, and shore up a run defense that will likely see a lot of attempts unless the offense surprises behind new starting quarterback AJ McCarron.

    The Bills traded OT Cordy Glenn, the 21st pick and fifth-round pick to Cincinnati for the #12 pick and a sixth-round pick.

    Why It Matters: 2017 second-round pick Dion Dawkins appears to be ready to be the long-term left tackle, so this isn’t a huge hit for the Bills offensive line, but after losing center Eric Wood, their depth is stretched very thin. The move is likely a precursor to getting into the top five for their long-term quarterback.

    The Bills signed QB AJ McCarron (Cincinnati) to a two-year, 10 million dollar deal.

    Why It Matters: McCarron is getting only three million dollars this year, a pittance for a starting quarterback. He’ll compete with Nathan Peterman and a rookie to start. McCarron’s camp was expecting Mike Glennon money when they won their grievance, but ended up with a worse contract than Chase Daniel.

    Cincinnati

    The Bengals acquired OT Cordy Glenn, the 21st pick and fifth-round pick from Cincinnati for the #12 pick and a sixth-round pick.
    Why It Matters: The Bengals offensive line was a disaster in 2017, and their tackle play was a big reason why. Glenn gives them a quality left tackle, as long as he doesn’t have a recurrence of foot/ankle issues that cost him 16 games over the last two years.

    The Bengals signed TE Tyler Eifert to a one-year, eight million dollar deal.

    Why It Matters: Eifert will be the top red zone option as long he stays healthy, which is definitely not a given. Still, with his high efficiency, low fantasy ADP and the low value of a dollar under the cap right now, both fantasy players and Bengals should see him as a risk worth taking.

    Cleveland

    The Browns signed RB Carlos Hyde (San Francisco) to a three-year, 15 million dollar contract.
    Why It Matters: Multiple reports stressed that this move doesn’t preclude taking Saquon Barkley, although that could be to keep trade interest for the Cleveland first-round picks high. Hyde is an upgrade from Isaiah Crowell and the team could be more competitive this year. He’s still likely in the low RB2 range at best sharing with Duke Johnson and a possible rookie pick even if the team passes on Barkley twice.

    The Browns signed OL Chris Hubbard (Pittsburgh) to a five-year, 37.5 million dollar contract with 18 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: He would be an upgrade at right tackle and could plug in at left tackle with Joe Thomas’s retirement or guard if needed. The contract is very reasonable by current offensive line standards and might be a steal if he keeps up his level of play from 2017. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley knows Hubbard well from their time together in Pittsburgh.

    Browns LT Joe Thomas retired.

    Why It Matters: Thomas blocked for 20 different quarterbacks during his career. He’ll merit hall of fame consideration despite never making the playoffs. He has been vocal on Twitter this offseason and we hope he continues to add his insight to doings around the league.

    Denver

    The Broncos signed QB Case Keenum (Minnesota) to a two-year, 36 million dollar deal with 25 million guaranteed.
    Why It Matters: Keenum was able to support strong fantasy value for Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen last year, so this is good news for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave should be able to craft a passing offense to the strengths Keenum showed in Minnesota last year. The Broncos didn’t land Kirk Cousins, but still addressed a position that has been a sore spot since their Super Bowl. The Paxton Lynch dream is officially over in Denver unless Keenum gets hurt.

    Houston

    The Texans signed OL Zach Fulton (Kansas City) to contract averaging around seven million dollars per season and OL Senio Kelemete to three-year, 12 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: The Texans missed on Nate Solder, but they added two versatile lineman who are battle-tested and should help an offensive line that was full of holes last year. It wasn’t ideal, but the Texans still used some of their considerable cap room to fix a large problem area.

    Jacksonville

    The Jaguars signed WR Donte Moncrief (Indianapolis) to a one-year deal worth up to 9.6 million dollars in 2018 and re-signed WR Marqise Lee to a four-year 38 million dollar deal with 18 million guaranteed. They also signed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins
    Why It Matters: The Jaguars curiously committed more to Moncrief and Lee than what it would have cost to franchise Allen Robinson. Moncrief had flashes of deep speed and red zone effectiveness with Andrew Luck, but disappeared last year and frequently struggled with injuries. Lee came on in the last two years of his rookie deal. Seferian-Jenkins revived his career with the Jets last year and will give the team a consistent receiving threat on short targets and in the red zone. In a run-first offense with three other solid receivers, it will be difficult to find consistent fantasy value, but Blake Bortles has depth in case injuries strike again and solid value as a matchup play.

    The Jaguars signed OG Andrew Norwell (Carolina) to a five-year, 66.5 million dollar deal with 30 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: The Jaguars got a strong run-blocking guard and the best interior lineman in free agency to make a strength even stronger. No team has done more to improve in free agency over the last few years than the Jaguars under GM David Caldwell.

    Kansas City

    The Chiefs signed WR Sammy Watkins (Los Angeles Rams) to a three-year, 48 million dollar deal with 30 million guaranteed.
    Why It Matters: The Chiefs have two #1s now, giving a big boost to Patrick Mahomes fantasy value in his first season as a starter. Tyreek Hill is still the better deep threat, but Watkins could benefit from having a receiver that teams had to take heed of on the opposite side of the formation. Kansas City made good use of the cap room freed up by the trade of Alex Smith and seem to have a plan to create a Super Bowl window with the extra cap room created by having a starting quarterback on his rookie deal.

    The Chiefs signed LB Anthony Hitchens (Dallas) a deal that reportedly averages nine million per season.

    Why It Matters: Hitchens was expected to go to Indianapolis to reunite with new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, but instead filled a big hole in Kansas City’s defense with the decline of Derrick Johnson. He’ll have strong IDP value.

    Miami

    The Dolphins signed WR Danny Amendola (New England) to a two-year, 12 million dollar deal and signed WR Albert Wilson (Kansas City) to a three-year, 24 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: The Patriots and Chiefs lost some valuable depth, but there won’t be consistent fantasy value created in the vacuum left by Jarvis Landry if both stay healthy. They are both steady receivers and could keep there from being very much runoff of targets to DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Ryan Tannehill lost his security blanket and franchising Landry might have been better for his value, but this isn’t a bad consolation.

    The Dolphins released DT Ndamukong Suh and OL Mike Pouncey and signed OL Josh Sitton (Chicago) to a two-year deal worth up to 18 million dollars.

    Why It Matters: Suh instantly becomes one of the best free agents available and might get the biggest deal this side of Kirk Cousins. He might take his time to drive up his market. Pouncey has been injured often in recent years, but still is one of the best centers in free agency and could also play guard. Sitton will bolster the interior line, especially in the passing game and help make up for the loss of Pouncey.

    New England

    The Patriots signed RB Rex Burkhead to a three-year deal.
    Why It Matters: If the Patriots don’t draft or sign another back, Burkhead will be a very strong play without Dion Lewis to contend with, although it looks like Mike Gillislee will get another shot to make good on his fantasy promise in this offense. It looks like another year to take a Patriots back late and see how the backfield shakes out.

    New York Jets

    The Jets re-signed QB Josh McCown to a one-year, 10 million dollar deal and QB Teddy Bridgewater (Minnesota) to a one-year, 5 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: McCown’s return preserves the value of Robby Anderson (after a likely suspension) and Jermaine Kearse, and keeps the offense viable. Bridgewater is clearly viewed with skepticism around the league, but with McCown’s injury history and age, he should get a chance to play unless the Jets take a quarterback early who passes him on the depth chart.

    The Jets signed CB Trumaine Johnson (Los Angeles Rams) to a 72.5 million dollar, five year deal, with 34 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: This is one of the best possible uses of the team’s copious cap room. He will present a tough matchup at the catch point for players like Brandin Cooks and DeVante Parker. The Jets have three of the four core secondary positions settled for the long term.

    The Jets signed RB Isaiah Crowell (Cleveland) to a three-year deal.

    Why It Matters: The Jets just won’t commit to Bilal Powell as a starter. Crowell’s game scripts might not be as bad as they were in Cleveland, but the Jets line is a downgrade, and he’ll still share with Powell and Elijah McGuire. A three-headed backfield in a middling offense is no place to look for fantasy value.

    Oakland

    The Raiders signed RB Doug Martin to a one-year deal.
    Why It Matters: Well, it might now. Jon Gruden was apparently very impressed with Martin, but Mike Silver reports that the team has no plans to move on Marshawn Lynch, who was vastly better than Martin last year. Martin isn’t a lock to make the team unless the guaranteed money is surprisingly high.

    The Raiders signed WR Jordy Nelson to a two-year, 15 million dollar deal with 13 million guaranteed and released Michael Crabtree.

    Why It Matters: Nelson looked washed once Aaron Rodgers was out and the Packers decided he wasn’t adding enough value to the offense to justify a 9.25 million dollar price tag. Nelson will have second half of the draft speculative value but might be overdrafted on name recognition. Crabtree could fall into a starting job on any number of wide receiver poor teams and is probably the better receiver at this point in their respective careers. At least Nelson finally got overpaid in free agency after giving the Packers sweetheart deals on two extensions.

    Tennessee

    The Titans signed RB Dion Lewis (New England) to a four-year, 20 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: The window of Derrick Henry having workhorse touches closed quickly. Lewis should be about equal to Henry in PPR fantasy value, and the Titans should hope to mimic the Saints offense with a good amount of the touches running through the backfield. Lewis is finally getting paid and should get opportunity to go with what is a big contract at running back despite looking meager by other positions standards.

    The Titans signed CB Malcolm Butler (New England) to a five-year, 61 million dollar deal with 30 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: Butler is reunited with Logan Ryan and should help a Titans secondary that was a major weakness last year. If first-round pick Adoree Jackson develops with Ryan and Butler, the Titans might not be the creampuff matchup for passing games that they were in 2017.


    NFC


    Arizona
    The Cardinals signed QB Sam Bradford (Minnesota) to a one-year, 20 million dollar deal with 15 million guaranteed.
    Why It Matters: The Cardinals passing game has a pulse again, and Larry Fitzgerald could set a career high in receptions if Bradford lasts even 12-14 games. Bradford’s addition of credibility to the passing game will help David Johnson, too. There has been some buzz that Bradford’s knee condition is degenerative and the Cardinals line isn’t among the league’s best, so we might see a lot of their other quarterback signing this week, Mike Glennon. Bradford’s fantasy value is negligible in Arizona.

    The Cardinals released DB Tyrann Mathieu.

    Why It Matters: Mathieu should be highly valued at only 25 despite his long injury history. His versatility in the secondary continues to be more coveted in the pass happy NFL even though the Panthers judged him to not be worth top-end safety money in their scheme. He joins Ndamukong Suh as one of the surprise prizes of the free agency market, gamechangers with a rare combination of skills and traits. The Arizona defense could have some hiccups early in their transition.

    Carolina

    The Panthers signed CB Bashaud Breeland (Carolina) to a three-year, 24 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: Breeland has had ups and downs early in his career, but he’s a suitable replacement, if not an upgrade from Daryl Worley, sent packing in the Torrey Smith trade. He has the length and aggressive play the Panthers value in their scheme.

    The Panthers signed DT Dontari Poe (Atlanta) to a three-year, 27 million dollar deal.

    Why It Matters: With Star Lotulelei gone, the Panthers were expecting 2016 Vernon Butler to pick up the slack, but now they have a third player in the rotation who will provide quality snaps and keep the whole group fresher. Poe found a soft market last year when overuse with the Chiefs wore him down, but he “proved it” on a one-year deal. He was a pure measureables prospect who got in the first round out of Memphis despite ineffective play on film.

    Chicago

    The Bears signed WR Allen Robinson (Jacksonville) to a three-year, 42 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: Robinson is coming off of a Week 1 ACL tear, and we should only project him for full recovery in pencil. The Bears land a potential ascendant #1, and Robinson must have liked the pitch from new offensive-minded head coach Matt Nagy. If Mitchell Trubisky takes a step similar to Carson Wentz or Jared Goff in year two, Robinson might return first-round value at a discount.

    The Bears signed TE Trey Burton (Philadelphia) to a four-year, 32 million dollar deal and WR Taylor Gabriel (Atlanta) to a four-year contract worth 26 million dollars with 14 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: Neither of Burton or Gabriel will clearly have consistent weekly fantasy value, but both have the ability to be big DFS or matchup plays if the new offensive staff in Chicago can mix all of the existing and new elements into binds that create mismatches like Los Angeles was able to do last year. Burton is a move tight end who will split tight end targets with massive 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen and Gabriel has the quickness and speed to be a big play threat. Add in Jordan Howard, Tarik Cohen and Allen Robinson, and all of the sudden this offense has some teeth.

    Detroit

    The Lions released TE Eric Ebron.
    Why It Matters: Ebron is on the open market now and could actually gain fantasy value for being released. The Lions had soured on him decided he wasn’t worth 8.25 million despite a second half turnaround. They didn’t find any trade suitors, which is more indicative of the market’s knowledge that he was likely going to be released than a lack of belief that Ebron has value. Baltimore is the best potential destination for him fantasy-wide and wherever he goes, he’ll be brought in as a passcatching tight end. 2017 fourth-round pick Michael Roberts could have a much larger role this year with Ebron and Darren Fells (signed by Cleveland) gone this offseason.

    Green Bay

    The Packers signed DL Mo Wilkerson (New York Jets) to a one-year, 5 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: Wilkerson was coached by new Packers defensive coordinator with the Jets and his addition gives the Packers a pair of defensive ends, along with Mike Daniels, that is very difficult to handle if Wilkerson can regain his form.

    The Packers released WR Jordy Nelson.

    Why It Matters: Nelson was productive with Aaron Rodgers last year, but he wasn’t creating as much separation and was useless without Rodgers. The Packers are betting that Rodgers skill created that production more than the player on the other end of those passes. Geronimo Allison is first in line to get vacated wide receiver targets and Davante Adams and Randall Cobb could have their bottom lines enhanced by this move. Nelson has already gotten a lot of interest and could land in Oakland, which could trigger a Michael Crabtree release.

    The Packers signed TE Jimmy Graham (Seattle) to a three-year, 30 million dollar deal.

    Why It Matters: Graham was an oversized short yardage wide receiver last year that functioned as the Seahawks goal-to-go inside the five offense last year. He’s not a downfield threat any longer, but he can still play that role and might have gotten an upgrade in situation. The Packers have now made three veteran tight end signings in the last three years with Graham coming in off of the heels of Martellus Bennett and Jared Cook.

    Los Angeles Rams

    The Rams re-signed CB Nickell Robey-Coleman to a three-year, 15.75 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: Robey-Coleman is one of the better slot corners in the league and he signed for a pittance compared to starting outside corners. The NFL might not be correctly valuing the importance of his role. He is an excellent fit with Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters on the outside, and gives the Rams the ability to let Sam Shields come along at his own pace after multiple concussions.

    Minnesota

    The Vikings signed QB Kirk Cousins (Washington) to a three-year deal fully guaranteed at 84 million dollars.
    Why It Matters: He’ll make the Vikings offense at least as productive as Case Keenum did, and probably retain mid-low QB1 value with his excellent surroundings. Cousins might have been able to get more money from the Jets, but he wouldn’t have the same shot at a Super Bowl ring. He signed a short enough deal to have a chance to get one more huge payday in his age 33 season.

    New Orleans

    The Saints re-signed QB Drew Brees to a two-year, 50 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: The Crescent City can exhale. There was a small crack in the negotiations that made it seem like the Saints might not get a deal done and trigger 18 million dollars in dead cap money, but sanity prevailed.

    The Saints signed LB Demario Davis to a three-year, 24 million dollar deal.

    Why It Matters: The Saints continue to churn through linebackers, with the list of draft picks and free agent signings littered mostly by failures. Davis should get every chance to seize a large role in the defense and matter in IDP fantasy leagues.

    New York Giants

    The Giants signed OT Nate Solder (New England) to a four-year, 62 million dollar deal with 34.8 million guaranteed.
    Why It Matters: The Giants pass blocking gets an instant upgrade, which matters for the immobile Eli Manning and perhaps a quarterback the team takes at #2 overall. The Patriots will have to replace Solder, but they have been able to handle transition on the offensive line as long they have Dante Scarnecchia on the coaching staff.

    The Giants signed RB Jonathan Stewart (Carolina) to a 6.9 million dollar deal with 2.95 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: Stewart is in line to split the backfield with Wayne Gallman for now, but he could yield to a rookie back by the end of the season, assuming the Giants dip into the deep group. Stewart might not be more effective than free agent Orleans Darkwa and isn’t worth drafting despite being reunited with former Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

    San Francisco

    The 49ers signed RB Jerick McKinnon (Minnesota) to a four-year, 30 million dollar deal.
    Why It Matters: McKinnon is in line to lead this backfield in touches, pending the draft, which is very exciting after how this team finished the season on offense. He should take a big leap in early ADP and has a PPR RB1 ceiling for the time being.

    The 49ers signed OL Weston Richburg (New York Giants) to a five-year deal worth 47.5 million dollars with 28.5 million guaranteed.

    Why It Matters: The 49ers shored up their interior offensive line with Richburg, keeping the momentum going in four-month period that has seen a renaissance on the offensive side of the ball.

    Seattle

    The Seahawks did not tender RFA RBs Thomas Rawls and Mike Davis.
    Why It Matters: Rawls was pressing last year and never regained his rookie form. Davis wasn’t bad in his short stint in the backfield, but didn’t do enough to earn a restricted free agent tender. Either or both could return later in free agency, but this is clearly Chris Carson’s backfield - at least until the draft.

    Washington

    Washington signed WR Paul Richardson (Seattle) to a five-year, 40 million dollar deal with 20 million guaranteed
    Why It Matters: Richardson gives Alex Smith a deep threat, which Washington lacked before this signing. Smith showed a lot of improvement in his deep passing last year, and Richardson could have more consistent value than he did last year in Seattle, especially if Josh Doctson once again can’t stay healthy.

    Sunday Update

    Bears | Allen Robinson financial details
    Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson's three-year contract is worth $42 million, with $18 million fully guaranteed by next week. He is scheduled to earn a base salary of $9.9 million for the 2019 season, with $7.2 million of it converting to a full guarantee by next March.


    NFL | Mason Rudolph impresses
    Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph was 'on time' and 'on target' with his throws during his pro day workout Thursday, March 15, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com, and Brooks compared Rudolph to Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles.


    NFL | James Washington improves numbers
    Oklahoma State WR James Washington improved his vertical leap from 34.5 inches at the NFL Scouting Combine to 39 inches at his pro day Thursday, March 15.


    Browns | Josh Gordon fine with new teammate
    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon cleared the air with new FS Damarious Randall on Wednesday, March 14. Gordon took exception on Twitter last season after Randall bragged to the media about holding Gordon to one catch, and then the defender fired back later alluding to Gordon's battle with alcohol and drug addiction. 'We just had a great, great dinner,' Randall said of the meeting. 'We're looking forward to being great teammates and just winning a lot of games.'


    Raiders | Oakland to check out Ryan Grant
    Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) will visit with the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, March 18.
    Footballguys view: Grant failed a physical with the Ravens after agreeing to a deal...mysteriously after Michael Crabtree was released. He's gotten a bit of interest on the open market and may not have the same problem 'passing a physical' elsewhere.


    Dolphins | DeMarco Murray to visit Miami
    Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) will visit with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, March 18.
    Footballguys view: The Dolphins have interest in adding a power element to their backfield. Kenyon Drake is their lead back but he's not a banger between the tackles. That could be Murray's role if the Dolphins sign him.


    Ravens | Baltimore still talking to Mike Wallace
    Free-agent WR Mike Wallace (Ravens) could still return to the Baltimore Ravens, as general manager Ozzie Newsome said he hasn't closed to door on re-signing the veteran. The club has had conversations with Wallace.


    49ers | Matt Breida could still have big role
    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is still expected to have a meaningful role even after the team signed RB Jerick McKinnon to be their lead back.
    Footballguys view: Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday, March 17, that he envisions the combination of McKinnon and Breida to be similar to Atlanta Falcons RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, a group that combined for 1,600 rushing yards and 85 receptions in 2016.


    Raiders | Marshawn Lynch to receive bonus
    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will receive his $1 million bonus Sunday, March 18, and will remain with the team, according to a source.
    Footballguys view: Will they or won't they cut Lynch? That was the question for the veteran back and WR Michael Crabtree when Jon Gruden was hired as the head coach. The team parted ways with Crabtree to make room for Jordy Nelson, but recent reports indicate they'll stick with Lynch in 2018. Stay tuned.


    Ravens | Baltimore open to re-signing two WRs
    Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team is still open to re-signing free-agent WRs Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro even though they have signed WRs John Brown and Michael Crabtree.
    Footballguys view: Brown is basically a younger version of Wallace, while Crabtree becomes the team's best receiver. They may be open to a return for both Wallace and Campanaro, but there may not be much of a role for either one if they stay with Baltimore this season.


    NFL | Deonte Thompson receives offers
    Free-agent WR Deonte Thompson (Bills) is considering a few offers at this time. He has received interest from the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys this offseason.
    Footballguys view: Thompson is mulling over what's best for him. The Broncos and Cowboys could both use better depth at the receiver position. Thompson has a nice size/speed combination and is an experienced return man as well.


    Raiders | Seth Roberts receive guaranteed money
    Oakland Raiders WR Seth Roberts' $4.25 million salary for 2018 is guaranteed because he remained on the roster Friday, March 16. He can make an additional $200,000 in workout bonuses and another $300,000 in incentives.


    Dolphins | Dion Sims could be option for MIA
    Chicago Bears TE Dion Sims likely would receive interest from the Miami Dolphins if the Bears decide to release him this offseason.
    Footballguys view: Sims is a big-bodied blocker and not much of a threat as a pass catcher. The Dolphins would continue to use Sims in a similar fashion...call him the anti-Julius Thomas due to his skill set.


    Dolphins | Miami likes Josh Rosen
    UCLA QB Josh Rosen is a player the Miami Dolphins has spoken highly about leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, according to an NFL official.
    Footballguys view
    : Rosen is one of the most polarizing players in the 2018 NFL draft. He might be difficult to coach, some rumors indicate he's difficult to get along with, and Rosen is outspoken about his political beliefs. That being said, Rosen has the best mechanics and pure passing technique of any of the quarterbacks in this draft class. The Dolphins have the 11th overall pick and it would be shocking to see Rosen fall that far given his passing talent.
