1.Ramon Humber: Re-signs with Bills (RotoWire) The Bills re-signed Humber to a one-year deal on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: Humber has spent the past two seasons in Buffalo, contributing on defense and special teams. Last season the veteran recorded nine starts, the most in a single season so far in his career, but eventually lost his starting role to rookie Matt Milano. Still, Humber managed to record a career-high 89 tackles (60 solo) to go along with one sack, one pass defensed and one forced fumble. Look for him to once again compete for starting role during training camp.11 minutes
2.Samaje Perine: Likely to face competition (RotoWire) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there's a good chance the team will use an early draft pick on a running back to join Perine, Chris Thompson (leg) and Rob Kelley (ankle) in the backfield, Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan DC reports. Analysis: Thompson did a phenomenal job on passing downs until a fractured fibula ended his season after 10 games, but it was a far different story for Perine (3.4 yards per carry) and Kelley (3.1 YPC) on early downs. The only silver lining for the 2017 fourth-round pick was marking consecutive 100-yard games in Weeks 11 and 12, as he otherwise produced 3.2 yards or less per carry in each game with double-dig...

3.Niles Paul: Moves up depth chart (RotoWire) Paul's new team, the Jaguars, released fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis on Tuesday. Analysis: Jacksonville signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins shortly after signing Paul, leaving the 28-year-old as the likely No. 3 tight end. It now seems Paul has a shot at the No. 2 job, though he may have to fend off competition from Ben Koyack and James O'Shaughnessy. Seferian-Jenkins is the one to watch for fantasy purposes, with Lewis' release perhaps freeing up an every-down role.1 hour
4.Redskins remain interest in NT Bennie Lo... (Rotoworld) ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins are interested in free agent NT Bennie Logan. Analysis: No visit is scheduled but Logan remains firmly on Washington's radar. The ex-Chief would likely be a fallback for the Redskins if the team falls short in its pursuit of Sylvester Williams, who is visiting on Tuesday. The Redskins also hosted Johnathan Hankins on Sunday, though he left without a contract.1 hour
5.Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Left atop depth chart (RotoWire) Seferian-Jenkins' new team, the Jaguars, released fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis on Tuesday. Analysis: Lewis held the starting job in Jacksonville from 2007 to 2017, with his value as a blocker making up for receiving yardage totals below 400 each of the past five years. The decision to release the 33-year-old suggests Jacksonville may envision a three-down role for Seferian-Jenkins, one of the few tight ends in the league who comes close to matching Lewis in size. Should that ultimately be the case, Seferian-Jenkins could turn out to be a steal on his two-year, $10 million contract, a deal that puts him 22nd among tight ends in aver... (More)1 hour
6.Sherman expects to be healthy by May or ... (Rotoworld) Speaking at his introductory press conference with the 49ers on Tuesday, Richard Sherman (Achilles) said he expects to be back on the field by May or June. Analysis: He's recovering from a ruptured Achilles and also had surgery to remove bone spurs earlier this offseason. If Sherman's timetable is accurate, he should be healthy well in advance of training camp and might even be back for the very end of OTAs. The four-time All-Pro selection defected to the rival-Niners this offseason after being let go by Seattle.2 hours
7.Eric Decker: Visiting Oakland (RotoWire) Decker is visiting with the Raiders on Tuesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports. Analysis: Decker hauled in 54 of 83 targets for only 563 yards (6.8) and one touchdown for the Titans last season, but he did stay healthy for all 16 regular-season games and then caught eight of 12 targets for 106 yards and a score in two playoff contests. The 31-year-old didn't have any reported visits during the opening wave of free agency, with most receiver-needy teams eyeing younger, faster players. Seth Roberts earned a $2 million roster bonus Friday when the Raiders opted not to release him, but the interest in Decker suggests Oakland i... (More)2 hours
8.Morgan Burnett: Heading to Pittsburgh (RotoWire) The Steelers and Burnett agreed to a three-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Burnett's eight-year run with the Packers included three 100-tackle campaigns, nine interceptions, eight forced fumbles and 7.5 sacks. Generally, he provided a steady hand at strong safety, but injuries also beset him from time to time, as he suited up for only 102 of a possible 128 regular-season contests. Upon joining the Steelers, he'll line up next to third-year safety Sean Davis within a defense that ranked fifth in terms of yards allowed and seventh in points conceded in 2017.2 hours
9.Kai Forbath: Staying in Minnesota (RotoWire) The Vikings re-signed Forbath on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Forbath joined the Vikings in the aftermath of the Blair Walsh fiasco in 2016 and hasn't looked back, despite a challenge from Marshall Koehn in training camp last year. During 23 regular-season games with the team, Forbath has notched double-digit points nine times, powered by making 45 of 53 extra-point attempts and 47 of 53 field-goal tries. Assuming he upholds that standard in 2018, he should rank among the top 10 kickers backing up a Kirk Cousins-led offense.2 hours
10.Marcedes Lewis: Jaguars move on (RotoWire) Lewis was released by the Jaguars on Tuesday. Analysis: The Jaguars previously exercised their $3.5 million contract option for Lewis in 2018, which set the stage for the 2006 first-rounder to return for a 13th campaign with Jacksonville. However, the team changed course following the subsequent free agent additions of fellow tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul. Lewis caught 24 passes for 318 yards and five touchdowns this past season, but at this stage of his career, the 33-year-old's blocking and pass protection are his primary calling cards.2 hours
11.Vikings keep Kai Forbath (Rotoworld) Vikings re-signed K Kai Forbath.3 hours
12.Ryan Grant: Settles for one year, $5 million (RotoWire) Grant (ankle) is signing a one-year, $5 million contract with the Colts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Grant had his four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens voided by a failed physical, though many have speculated that Baltimore simply had buyer's remorse and preferred to sign a more proven player in Michael Crabtree. The 2014 fifth-round pick enjoyed a breakout of sorts in Washington last season, catching 45 of 65 targets for 573 yards (8.8 YPT) and four scores, besting his reception, yardage and touchdown totals from the previous three years combined. Grant did hurt his ankle in Week 14, but he's yet to miss... (More)3 hours
13.Colts bring back Desir on 1-year contrac... (Rotoworld) Colts re-signed CB Pierre Desir to a one-year contract. Analysis: Desir logged 32 tackles and one interception over 375 snaps last year before landing on IR with a shoulder injury. He could have a chance to start with Rashaan Melvin gone.3 hours
14.CB Justin Bethel pays Falcons a visit (Rotoworld) Free agent CB Justin Bethel visited the Falcons on Tuesday. Analysis: It's Bethel's first known visit. The 27-year-old earned three Pro Bowl nods during his six-year run in Arizona but struggled last season, earning PFF's No. 111 cornerback grade out of 120 qualifiers. He'd give the Falcons some depth behind starters Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford.4 hours
15.Jaguars cut long-serving TE Marcedes Lew... (Rotoworld) Jaguars released TE Marcedes Lewis. Analysis: It is a surprise both because he had been with the team for 12 seasons and they picked up his option in February. Lewis became expendable, however, after Jacksonville signed both Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul in free agency. The move saves the Jaguars $3.5 million against the cap.4 hours
16.Report: Eric Decker actually visiting Ra... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Vic Tafur reports free agent Eric Decker is visiting the Raiders on Tuesday. Analysis: A photo of Decker on a plane sparked rumors he was visiting the Saints, but those turned out to be false. He was headed somewhere, however, and that somewhere appears to be Oakland. Decker was not great last season in Tennessee, but he would be a better No. 3 option than Seth Roberts.4 hours
17.Ryan Grant: Poised to join Colts (RotoWire) Grant (ankle) is reportedly nearing a deal with the Colts, according to Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News. Analysis: Grant previously had a deal with the Ravens that was voided when he didn't pass a physical with the team, but the Colts subsequently determined the 27-year-old's ankle issue isn't a significant concern. As a result, Grant is poised to join a wideout corps that could really use him, following the free agent departure of Donte Moncrief. T.Y. Hilton remains atop the depth chart on that front and if Grant indeed heads to Indy, opportunity knocks for him in an offense set to be manned by a (presumably) healthy Andrew Luck (should... (More)4 hours
18.Jamize Olawale: Traded to Dallas (RotoWire) The Raiders traded Olawale and a sixth-round draft pick to Dallas for a fifth-round pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Olawale has served as Oakland's fullback since 2013, typically playing more snaps on special teams than offense. The Cowboys and Raiders are swapping fullbacks, as Keith Smith recently left Dallas to sign with Oakland. Olawale isn't much of a lead blocker, but he has the necessary speed and pass-blocking skill to fill in as a passing-down back in a pinch. He'll likely continue to see most of his snaps on special teams.4 hours
19.Dede Westbrook: Part of four-man group (RotoWire) Westbrook will be part of a Jacksonville receiving corps that includes Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief and Keelan Cole, but not Allen Robinson (knee) or Allen Hurns, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Tuesday's release of Hurns should complete an interesting offseason for the Jaguars' wideout group, following a 2017 campaign in which Westbrook, Cole, Lee and Hurns all appeared to be Blake Bortles' favorite option at different times. Unable to re-sign Robinson, the Jaguars now have swapped out Hurns for Moncrief, whose one-year contract includes $9.6 million guaranteed. The surprisingly lucrative deal suggests the Jags view Moncrief ... (More)5 hours
20.Keelan Cole: Still faces competition (RotoWire) Cole will be part of a Jacksonville receiving corps that includes Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief and fellow second-year player Dede Westbrook, but not Allen Robinson or Allen Hurns, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Cole was a pleasant surprise as an undrafted rookie last season, catching 42 of 81 targets for 748 yards (9.2 YPT) and three scores in 16 games. His rapid, unexpected emergence softens the blow of losing Robinson and Hurns, though the addition of Moncrief on a surprisingly lucrative one-year contract suggests that Cole and fellow 2017 rookie Dede Westbrook (a fourth-round pick) may be left to compete for the No. 3 rece... (More)5 hours
21.Eric Decker visiting the Saints on Tuesd... (Rotoworld) Free agent Eric Decker is visiting the Saints on Tuesday. Analysis: Decker mostly disappointed last season with the Titans, but he was considerably more involved down the stretch and in the playoffs, showing he still has something left in the tank. Able to play both outside and in the slot, he would be a good fit with the Saints, who need help behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.5 hours
22.Allen Hurns: Hitting free agency (RotoWire) The Jaguars are releasing Hurns, who figures to have a strong market as a free agent, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Hurns' large contract made him a candidate for release even before the Jaguars re-signed Marqise Lee and added Donte Moncrief to bolster a receiving corps that also includes promising second-year players Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook. Hurns came into the league in 2014 as an undrafted free agent and caught 115 passes for 1,708 yards and 16 touchdowns over his first two seasons, prompting a four-year, $40.65 million extension in June of 2016. He's managed only 961 yards and five touchdowns in 21 games since si... (More)5 hours
23.Report: Ryan Grant signing with the Colt... (Rotoworld) Colts signed Ryan Grant, formerly of the Redskins, to a one-year, $5 million contract. Analysis: The news comes from ex-Packers receiver James Jones, who is breaking news faster than Adam Schefter these days. The deal is considerably less than Grant would have made in Baltimore, but he will get a shot to hit free agency again next spring. Grant is a solid receiver who will help fill out the Colts' paper-thin receiving corps, but they still could use more help. As it stands, T.Y. Hilton, Chester Rogers, and Grant top the depth chart.5 hours
24.Morgan Burnett: Finalizing deal with Steelers (RotoWire) Burnett is flying to Pittsburgh on Tuesday to finalize a contract with the Steelers, James Jones of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The Steelers have an opening at strong safety after releasing 2017 starter Mike Mitchell last week. The 29-year-old Burnett would be a clear upgrade, capable of playing linebacker or slot corner in the nickel/dime, in addition to serving as a traditional strong safety in the base defense. He's one of the top tackle compilers among defensive backs, averaging 6.8 in 102 career games. Health has been the only real concern, with Burnett missing at least one game (but no more than five) each of the past five se... (More)6 hours
25.Cowboys acquire FB Jamize Olawale (Rotoworld) Cowboys acquired FB Jamize Olawale from the Raiders. Analysis: The Cowboys are swapping their fifth-round pick for Oakland's sixth-rounder in the deal. Dallas needed a fullback after losing Keith Smith, who signed with the Raiders in free agency.6 hours
26.Jay Gruden: 'Good' chance we draft RB ea... (Rotoworld) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there is a "good possibility" the team selects a running back early in the draft.6 hours
27.Jaguars move on from Allen Hurns, save $... (Rotoworld) Jaguars released Allen Hurns. Analysis: The move saves $7 million against the cap. The writing was on the wall for Hurns after the Jaguars gave Donte Moncrief a one-year, $9.6 million contract. Hurns was probably overpaid in Jacksonville, but he is a solid receiver who should have no trouble finding a new home. The Jaguars will move forward with Marqise Lee, Moncrief, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole atop the depth chart.7 hours
28.Jaylen Watkins will visit 49ers on Wedne... (Rotoworld) Free agent DB Jaylen Watkins will visit the 49ers on Wednesday. Analysis: Originally a restricted free agent, Watkins went untendered by the Eagles. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the defensive back has a few more visits lined up after the 49ers. Watkins offers depth at both safety and corner.7 hours
29.Bears re-sign LB John Timu (Rotoworld) Bears re-signed LB John Timu. Analysis: Timu has started nine games over the last three seasons, but he is primarily a special teamer. He should compete for a similar role in camp.7 hours
30.Vikings C Elflein expected back during O... (Rotoworld) The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson reports Vikings C Pat Elflein (ankle) "should be able" to get in some work during OTAs. Analysis: Elflein suffered a broken ankle in the playoffs which ultimately required surgery. Recovery from ankle injuries can be tricky, but it sounds like Elflein's is on track. At worst, he should be ready for camp.7 hours
31.Brandon Williams has degenerative eye di... (Rotoworld) Ravens DT Brandon Williams is dealing with a degenerative eye disorder. Analysis: Called keratoconus, the disorder results in a progressive thinning of the cornea which affects vision and can eventually lead to blindness if untreated. Williams had surgery to repair his left eye before the 2017 season, and he underwent the procedure on his right eye this month. Thankfully, it does not appear the condition will affect him on the football field moving forward.7 hours
32.Sylvester Williams visiting Redskins Tue... (Rotoworld) Free agent NT Sylvester Williams is visiting the Redskins on Tuesday. Analysis: Williams was released by the Titans over the weekend, but that had more to do with his salary than level of play. In desperate need of a real nose tackle, Williams would be a good get for Washington.7 hours
33.Bills re-sign LB Ramon Humber (Rotoworld) Bills re-signed LB Ramon Humber to a one-year, $1.005 million contract. Analysis: Humber played 569 mostly replacement-level snaps on defense for the Bills last season, but he has primarily been a special teamer in the NFL. He will likely return to that role this season.8 hours
34.Ex-Packers S Morgan Burnett signs w/Stee... (Rotoworld) Steelers signed S Morgan Burnett, formerly of the Packers. Analysis: Pittsburgh needed help at safety after cutting both Mike Mitchell and Robert Golden, and Burnett was arguably the best available option in what has been an extremely slow moving market. Burnett should settle in as the starter opposite Sean Davis.8 hours
35.Dynasty | Eric Ebron signs with Indianapolis (Dynasty League Football) The Colts and tight end Eric Ebron have agreed to a two-year contract worth up to $15M14 hours
36.Eagles | Carson Wentz throwing at team facility (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) posted video of himself throwing inside the team's practice facility Monday, March 19, as he "appears to be making some significant strides" in his rehab from a torn ACL and LCL. He's still aiming to return for the season opener.16 hours
37.Cowboys | Cowboys to host two free-agent WRs (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent WRs Dontrelle Inman (Bears) and Justin Hunter (Steelers) are scheduled to visit the Dallas Cowboys this week.16 hours
38.Saints | Josh Huff suspended two games (USA Today Fantasy Sports) New Orleans Saints WR Josh Huff has been suspended the first two games of next season without pay for violating the league's substance abuse policy and personal conduct policy. This stems from his 2016 arrest while he was with the Philadelphia Eagles on charges of DUI, possession of marijuana and possession of an undisclosed handgun without a permit. He will be able to participate in all offseason practices and preseason games.17 hours
39.Eric Ebron to sign two-year deal with the Colts (FantasyPros) Eric Ebron is signing a two-year deal worth a maximum value of $15 million with the Colts, according to Adam Schefter. Analysis: The signing is a little surprising given than the Colts already had the underrated Jack Doyle. But given the current lack of depth at receiver for Indianapolis, both Doyle and Ebron should see plenty of work in two-tight end sets. Either way, Ebron wasn't signed to be a backup, obviously, and with a healthy Andrew Luck, he should find his way into being a borderline startable option in most leagues.20 hours
40.Colts do 2-year deal with ex-Lion Eric E... (Rotoworld) Colts signed TE Eric Ebron, formerly of the Lions, to a two-year contract. Analysis: Ebron can earn up to $15 million over the course of the deal; it's a nice haul for the former No. 10 overall pick who was cut by the Lions last week before his $8 million-plus salary became guaranteed. In Indy, Ebron gives the Colts a pair of capable tight ends -- along with Jack Doyle -- for new coach Frank Reich and OC Nick Sirianni, who both come from offenses in Philly and San Diego/L.A. where multiple-tight end sets were an offensive staple.20 hours
41.Colts | Indianapolis lands Eric Ebron (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) signed a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth a maximum value of $15 million on Monday, March 19, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.20 hours
42.Jets LB Donahue also faces DUI charges i... (Rotoworld) Jets OLB Dylan Donahue also faces DUI charges in Montana stemming from a May 2017 arrest. Analysis: Donahue was busted nine days after he was picked in the fifth round of last year's draft when he flipped his vehicle and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.137. Donahue, of course, was just arrested for his second DUI in less than a year last month when he drove the wrong way down the Lincoln Tunnel in NY/NJ and crashed head-on with a bus. He may not be long for the NFL.20 hours
43.Jets sign LB Brandon Copeland (Rotoworld) Jets signed LB Brandon Copeland, formerly of the Lions. Analysis: Copeland missed all of last season with a torn pectorals. He played in all 16 games for Detroit the previous season and will likely focus on special teams.21 hours
44.Jets | NY Jets ink Brandon Copeland (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent LB Brandon Copeland (Lions) signed an undisclosed deal with the New York Jets on Monday, March 19.21 hours
45.Former NFL OL Jon Martin facing five cha... (Rotoworld) Former Dolphins and 49ers OL Jonathan Martin is being charged with four counts of making criminal threats and one count of possessing a loaded firearm in connection with his February 23 arrest in Los Angeles. Analysis: Martin posted a cryptic message on Instagram that day, suggesting he was out for some sort of "revenge" and tagged the Dolphins and his former high school in the post. In his possession were an ax, a large knife, and a loaded 12-gauge shotgun. 28-year-old Martin has a warrant out for his arrest.21 hours
46.Free agent WR Charles Johnson visiting J... (Rotoworld) Free agent WR Charles Johnson visited the Jets on Monday. Analysis: The 29-year-old speedster missed all of last season with a knee injury. Johnson hasn't done much of anything since a promising 2014 season in Minnesota.21 hours
47.Xavier Cooper: Re-signs one-year deal to stay in New York (RotoWire) Cooper re-signed with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Analysis: The deal aims to strengthen the depth up front and provide a security blanket for an already strong defensive group. Although Cooper likely won't start, the fourth year veteran has a chance to help out in situational schemes.21 hours
48.Shea McClellin: Cut by New England (RotoWire) McClellin (concussion) was released by the Patriots on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Per the report, McClellin's release stems from a failed physical. The Boise State product missed the entirety of the 2017 season dealing with the aftereffects of a concussion. McClellin, 28, should draw attention from other teams.21 hours
49.James Ihedigbo: Hangs up the cleats (RotoWire) Ihedigbo plans to retire from football, per his personal instagram account. Analysis: Ihedigbo will be remembered as one of the league's most dependable special teams assets. The 34-year-old tallied 394 combined tackles and nine sacks over 10 NFL seasons.21 hours
50.Josh Mauro: Inks deal with Giants (RotoWire) Mauro signed with the Giants on Monday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Mauro spent the past four season in Arizona where he racked up 75 combined tackles and two sacks over the course of four seasons. It's unsure how he'll fit in with New York, but the 27-year-old has ties to new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher.21 hours
51.NFL | James Ihedigbo retires (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Former Detroit Lions SS James Ihedigbo announced his retirement from the NFL Monday, March 19.21 hours
52.B.W. Webb: Moving to New York (RotoWire) Webb signed a one-year deal with the Giants on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The 27-year-old spent last year in Cleveland but will look to help the Giants turn the page on one of the team's worst defensive seasons in recent memory. As of right now, it looks like Webb will function mostly as a depth corner, but given the uncertainty regarding the new regime's vision for the defense, Webb could wind up playing valuable snaps somewhere down the road in New York.22 hours
53.Kerry Wynn: Inks deal to stay with Big Blue (RotoWire) Wynn re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Wynn's one-year deal will keep the Richmond native in New York for at least the 2018 season. Although Wynn serves primarily as a backup, the Giants feel comfortable with the 27-year-old's versatility to play both inside and outside. With a new defensive scheme and switch to an attacking 3-4 defense, New York will need all the help it can get from a deep front seven.22 hours
54.Dominique Easley: Re-sign with Los Angeles (RotoWire) Easley (knee) intends to sign a one-year deal with the Rams on Monday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports. Analysis: The big man off the edge saw his year flash by in the blink of an eye upon tearing his ACL before the start of the 2017 regular season. In his first season with the Rams back in 2016, Easley registered 3.5 sacks and was a key contributor in the trenches for Los Angeles.22 hours
55.Jets | Charles Johnson visits Jets (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent WR Charles X. Johnson (Panthers) visited the New York Jets Monday, March 19.22 hours
56.Bills sign veteran OT Marshall Newhouse (Rotoworld) Bills signed OT Marshall Newhouse, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year contract. Analysis: Newhouse, 29, was released by the Raiders last week. He started all 14 games he appeared in for Oakland last season and has 70 career starts under his belt. Ideally, Newhouse would be a swing tackle, but he'll likely compete with Jordan Mills and others for the starting right tackle job in Buffalo.23 hours
57.Bills add to OL with C Bodine, OT Newhou... (Rotoworld) Bills signed C Russell Bodine, formerly of the Bengals, to a two-year contract. Analysis: Buffalo also signed OT Marshall Newhouse. The two veterans have combined to start 134 games in the NFL, with Bodine starting every game for the Bengals the past four seasons after being a 2014 fourth-rounder. Cincinnati, however, despite all of their offensive line needs, didn't show much interest in bringing Bodine back, which is telling. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 32 center out of 38 qualifiers last season but figures to be in line to replace retired C Eric Wood.23 hours
58.Giants | Josh Mauro officially signed (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating a previous report, free-agent DE Josh Mauro (Cardinals) was officially signed by the New York Giants Monday, March 19, as expected.23 hours
59.Giants reunite DE Mauro with DC Bettcher (Rotoworld) Giants signed DE Josh Mauro, formerly of the Cardinals. Analysis: A 2014 UDFA out of Stanford, Mauro played for new Giants DC James Bettcher in Arizona. He's a rotational piece for early downs against the run.23 hours
60.Lions | Christian Ringo re-signs (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent DT Christian Ringo (Lions) re-signed with the Detroit Lions Monday, March 19.23 hours
61.Sam Darnold to throw at USC pro day (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting former USC QB Sam Darnold will throw at USC's pro day rain or shine on Wednesday. Analysis: Because Darnold didn't throw at last month's NFL Scouting Combine, he is slated to throw at USC's pro day even if it rains, which is forecasted. Barring an atrocious outing, Darnold is expected to be a top 10 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. He'll likely be heavily targeted by QB-needy teams that include the Broncos and the Jets.23 hours
62.Cody Latimer signs with Giants (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New York Giants have signed former Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer. Analysis: A former second-round pick in 2014, Latimer will join a Giants' offense loaded with wide receivers. However, it's clear Odell Beckham Jr is having off the field problems, which could lead to a suspension if he doesn't clean up his act. Coming off of an underwhelming career year last season -- he posted a 19-287-2 stat line in 11 games -- Latimer is nothing more than a low-end depth chart filler on his new club.23 hours
63.Josh Huff: Receives two-game ban (RotoWire) The NFL suspended Huff for two games for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Since entering the NFL as a third-round pick in 2014, Huff has been unable to find a foothold and last took the field Week 16 of the 2016 season. Notably, he was arrested in November of that year for DUI and possession of marijuana, which precipitated his release from the Eagles. Huff has a reserve/future contract from the Saints in his back pocket, which will allow him to take part in the offseason program and during the preseason. In order to land on the 53-man roster, post-suspension, he may have... (More)23 hours
64.Free agent S Ihedigbo retires (Rotoworld) Free agent S James Ihedigbo announced his retirement. Analysis: Now 34 years old, Ihedigbo spent all of 2017 out of football. Ihedigbo played nine years in the league, spending time with the Jets, Patriots, Ravens, Lions, and Bills. Ihedigbo began his career as one of the NFL's best special teams players and went on to develop into a 55-game starter at safety.23 hours
65.Lions | Logan Paulsen visits Lions (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent TE Logan Paulsen (49ers) visited the Detroit Lions Monday, March 19, according to a source.23 hours
66.Bills | Buffalo meets with Kevin Minter (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent LB Kevin Minter (Bengals) visited the Buffalo Bills Monday, March 19, according to a source.23 hours
67.Patriots | Shea McClellin released (USA Today Fantasy Sports) New England Patriots LB Shea McClellin was released Monday, March 19, according to a source.23 hours
68.Seahawks trade for CB C.J. Smith (Rotoworld) Seahawks acquired CB C.J. Smith from the Browns in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020. Analysis: Smith played only nine snaps for last year's Browns, but the Seahawks are taking a flyer on him for his athleticism. A 2016 undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State, Smith stands 5-foot-11, 188 and jumped 39 inches vertically with an explosive 10-foot-11 broad jump at his Pro Day. The Seahawks are shallow at corner behind Shaq Griffin and Justin Coleman.23 hours
69.Bears | More on Prince Amukamara's deal (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Chicago Bears CB Prince Amukamara's three-year, $27 million deal includes $18 million guaranteed.1 day
70.Bills host Kevin Minter (Rotoworld) The Bills hosted free agent LB Kevin Minter on Monday. Analysis: Buffalo has a void at inside linebacker after losing Preston Brown to Cincinnati. Minter spent last year with the Bengals, operating as a rotational run stopper. In Buffalo, Minter would likely leave the field on passing downs.1 day
71.Buccaneers | Three Buccaneers re-signed (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agents DE Will Clarke (Buccaneers) and LBs Adarius Glanton (Buccaneers) and Cameron Lynch (Buccaneers) all re-signed to one-year contracts with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, March 19.1 day
72.Patriots cut LB McClellin (Rotoworld) Patriots released LB Shea McClellin. Analysis: McClellin signed a "three-year, $8.95 million" contract with the Pats in 2016 and was a key contributor his first year in Foxboro, but he missed the entire 2017 season with a concussion. McClellin's NFL future is up in the air.1 day
73.Orlando Scandrick: Taking talents to Washington (RotoWire) The Redskins signed Scandrick (back) to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Jettisoned by the only organization he's ever known (the Cowboys) on Sunday, Scandrick found a new home in quick order. Due to his experience, the 10-year pro is the top candidate to work opposite Josh Norman in Washington's base defense in 2018. For his career, Scandrick has averaged 3.2 tackles per game while racking up 11.5 sacks, eight interceptions and six forced fumbles in 125 outings.1 day
74.Dolphins | DeMarco Murray leaves without deal (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins without an agreement Monday, March 19.1 day
75.Chargers sign C Mike Pouncey to 2-year d... (Rotoworld) Chargers signed C Mike Pouncey to a two-year contract. Analysis: In large part due to a lingering hip injury, Pouncey's effectiveness waned in 2017 with the Dolphins, but he is still only 28 years old and should be recovered now. Pouncey has stated he will eventually need a hip replacement. The Chargers' offensive line is shaping up, from left to right, as LT Russell Okung > LG Dan Feeney > C Pouney > RG Forrest Lamp > RT Joe Barskdale. If the unit stays healthy, this line has a chance to be a top-ten group.1 day
76.Josh Johnson: Signing with Raiders (RotoWire) Johnson signed with the Raiders on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Analysis: A 2008 fifth-round pick, Johnson has bounced around the league as a third-string quarterback for most of his career, last attempting a pass in a regular-season game in 2011. He lost out to Geno Smith in a battle for the Giants' No. 2 job last preseason, and then caught on with the Texans for part of November and December. Johnson may get the chance to compete with 2016 fourth-round pick Connor Cook for the backup job in Oakland, though the team also figures to add another veteran and/or draft pick. Johnson is an Oakland native... (More)1 day
77.Chiefs | Kansas City hosts Damien Williams (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent RB Damien Williams (Dolphins) is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, March 19.1 day
78.Chiefs hosting free agent Damien William... (Rotoworld) The Chiefs are hosting free agent RB Damien Williams. Analysis: Kansas City may be targeting a replacement for incumbent passing-down back Charcandrick West, although Williams wouldn't necessarily be an upgrade. Williams has averaged 3.6 yards per carry in his four-year career and isn't particularly dynamic after the catch. He wouldn't threaten Kareem Hunt's workload.1 day
79.Laquon Treadwell: Could get another chance (RotoWire) Treadwell could get another shot at the No. 3 receiver job, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Treadwell held the job for most of 2017 but caught only 20 passes for 200 yards in 16 games, leading the Vikings to turn back to Jarius Wright for the playoffs. Wright responded with 107 yards in two postseason contests, but he nonetheless was released this offseason to help free up cap space for Kirk Cousins and Sheldon Richardson. The Vikings surely would like to see their 2016 first-round pick step up behind the impressive duo of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but the team may still add a draft pick or veteran free agent to co...

80.Jarius Wright: Signing with Carolina (RotoWire) Wright is signing a two-year contract with the Panthers, including a $2 million signing bonus, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Released by the Vikings on Friday, the 2012 fourth-round pick only needed three days to find a new home. He'll reunite with Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who held the same role in Minnesota from 2014 to 2016. Wright lost his long-time gig as the Vikings' No. 3 receiver in 2016, but he finally got it back for the 2017 playoffs, where he responded by catching six of 12 targets for 107 yards in two games. The 28-year-old likely will compete with Russell Shepard and Curtis Samuel (ankl... (More)1 day
81.Raiders | Oakland signs Josh Johnson (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Texans) was signed to an undisclosed deal by the Oakland Raiders Monday, March 19.1 day
82.Raiders sign QB Josh Johnson (Rotoworld) Raiders signed QB Josh Johnson. Analysis: Coach Jon Gruden vowed to "take the game back to 1998" at the Combine, and on Monday he took a promised step backwards by reuniting with Johnson, a journeyman career backup whom Gruden drafted with the Bucs in 2008. In Oakland, Johnson will compete with Connor Cook to back up Derek Carr.1 day
83.Cody Latimer: Joining Giants (RotoWire) Latimer is signing a contract with the Giants, per his twitter account. Analysis: A 2014 second-round pick, Latimer caught 35 of 61 targets for 445 yards (7.3 YPT) and three scores in 45 games for the Broncos, but he at least was a useful contributor on special teams, which could be the key to earning a roster spot in New York. His best-case scenario is the opportunity to be part of a competition for the No. 3/4 receiver jobs.1 day
84.Jets | Xavier Cooper returns to Jets (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent DT Xavier Cooper (Jets) is re-signing to a one-year deal with the New York Jets Monday, March 19, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.1 day
85.Teddy Bridgewater: Only gets $500k guaranteed (RotoWire) Bridgewater's one-year contract with the Jets includes only $500,000 guaranteed, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Initially reported as a $15 million deal, Bridgewater's contract has sounded weaker and weaker as more of the details have become public. He'll collect a $500,000 signing bonus and a $500,000 workout bonus this offseason, but the rest of his money comes in the form of a non-guaranteed $5 million base salary and $9 million worth of incentives. With incumbent starter Josh McCown re-signed and the Jets recently trading up for the No. 3 overall pick with their eyes (presumably) on a young quarterback, it isn't hard ... (More)1 day
86.Giants | Josh Mauro going to Giants (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent DE Josh Mauro (Cardinals) is expected to sign with the New York Giants, according to a source.1 day
87.Jets re-sign DL Xavier Cooper (Rotoworld) Jets re-signed DL Xavier Cooper to a one-year contract. Analysis: The 96th overall pick in the 2015 draft by the Browns, Cooper has bounced around with the 49ers and Jets since being cut by Cleveland. He earned a significant role with last year's Jets, playing over 300 snaps in a rotation. Cooper is technically a 3-4 defensive end but primarily plays on the interior.1 day
88.Panthers | Jarius Wright contract details (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Jarius Wright is signing to a two-year deal with a $2 million signing bonus. The first year is worth up to $3.5 million with incentives.1 day
89.Giants | Cody Latimer signs with Giants (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent WR Cody Latimer (Broncos) signed with the New York Giants Monday, March 19. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.1 day
90.Justin Hunter: Visiting with Cowboys (RotoWire) Hunter is scheduled to visit with the Cowboys this week, Clarence Hill of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Analysis: A 2013 second-round pick, Hunter has played for three teams the past three seasons, unable to establish himself as anything more than an occasional deep/red-zone threat. He could make sense as a replacement for fellow free agent Brice Butler, who averaged 18.5 yards on 43 catches in his 36 games for Dallas the past three seasons. The Cowboys also are looking at Dontrelle Inman as an option to solidify their depth behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley.1 day
91.Panthers | Jarius Wright expected to join Carolina (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent WR Jarius Wright (Vikings) is expected to sign with the Carolina Panthers, according to a source.1 day
92.Giants take flier on ex-Broncos WR Latim... (Rotoworld) Giants signed WR Cody Latimer, formerly of the Broncos. Analysis: The 56th pick in the 2014 draft, Latimer caught just 35 passes across four seasons in Denver. He set career highs across the board with a 19/287/2 receiving line last season. Latimer has been a bust to date, but he's still only 25 years old and worth a flier for a Giants team that figures to cut Brandon Marshall soon.1 day
93.Dontrelle Inman: Visiting Dallas (RotoWire) Inman is scheduled to visit with the Cowboys this week, Clarence Hill of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Analysis: Inman had 810 yards for the Chargers in 2016 and generally has been efficient with his opportunities, catching 130 of 220 career targets (59.1 percent) for 1,797 yards (8.2 YPT) and eight touchdowns. It helps that most of those targets came from Philip Rivers, but the solid numbers should at least help Inman find work as a No. 4 receiver, which likely would be his calling in Dallas behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley. The 29-year-old is one of the better wideouts left on the market after the initia... (More)1 day
94.Panthers sign ex-Vikes slot WR Jarius Wr... (Rotoworld) Panthers will sign WR Jarius Wright, formerly of the Vikings. Analysis: Wright finished the playoffs as the Vikings' primary third receiver but was cut three days ago to save Minnesota $2.64 million under the cap. 28-year-old Wright has background with new Panthers OC Norv Turner and will be the favorite to overtake Russell Shepard as Carolina's new slot receiver.1 day
95.LeGarrette Blount: Gets $2 million guaranteed (RotoWire) Blount's one-year contract with the Lions includes $2 million guaranteed and another $2.5 million available in incentives, per Ben Volin of The Boston Globe. Analysis: Blount actually settled for a much smaller contract last offseason on the heels of an 18-touchdown 2016 campaign, signing with the Eagles for $1.25 million. He only scored three times in the regular season for Philadelphia, but his average of 4.4 yards on 173 carries at least proved that his previous success wasn't solely a product of the surrounding talent in New England. The 31-year-old then capped off his season by hitting pay dirt in each of Philadelphia's three pla... (More)1 day
96.Steelers | Pittsburgh meeting with Michael Thomas (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent FS Michael X. Thomas (Dolphins) is meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, March 19.1 day
97.NFL suspends WR Josh Huff 2 games (Rotoworld) NFL suspended Saints WR Josh Huff two games for violating the NFL's substance abuse and personal conduct policies. Analysis: Huff was arrested for DUI, speeding, and marijuana possession in November of 2016, although the charges were dropped this past July. Huff will be in a roster crunch in New Orleans, and not being available for Weeks 1-2 won't help.1 day
98.Carson Wentz: Making progress in recovery from knee injury (RotoWire) Wentz, who is bouncing back from a torn ACL and LCL, posted a video of himself throwing inside the Eagles' practice facility Monday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Wentz, who sported a knee brace on his left knee Monday, has said that his goal is to be ready for the team's season opener, but given that he underwent surgery back in mid-December, that timetable may be pushing things. In any case, as it standa, the Eagles can afford to proceed deliberately with Wentz, thanks to the continued roster presence of Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. By the time most fantasy drafts and auctions occur, there should be added clarity with reg... (More)1 day
99.Skins sign O. Scandrick to fill slot CB ... (Rotoworld) Redskins signed CB Orlando Scandrick to a two-year contract. Analysis: Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal has a max value of $10 million. Scandrick's play has slipped in recent years, primarily due to injuries. He just turned 31 years old and will replace Kendall Fuller as Washington's slot corner. Fantasy leaguers should proactively start slot receivers against the Skin this year.1 day
100.Redskins | Washington signing Orlando Scandrick (USA Today Fantasy Sports) Free-agent CB Orlando Scandrick (Cowboys) agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, March 19, worth as much as $10 million, according to a source.1 day
