  • Matt Elam SS | BAL

    Matt Elam: Facing more legal troubles

    Elam was arrested on charges of larceny and battery outside of Miami on Monday, Jorge Milian of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Elam was involved in a dispute with a woman over the possession of a cell phone and both fell to the ground, with the woman suffering minor cuts to her finger and ankle. This marks his second instance of legal trouble this offseason and likely serves as yet another ding to his prospects of landing another NFL contract.

  • O.J. Howard TE | TB

    Buccaneers' O.J. Howard: Signs contract Monday

    Howard, the Buccanneers' 2017 first-round pick, signed a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth season Monday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The standout tight end thus becomes the first of Tampa's six draft picks to ink a contract, and given his talent and draft slot, he's expected to make immediate contributions. Howard is notably the only tight end drafted in the first round by the Bucs in the franchise's 42-year history, and his 6-foot-6 frame and 4.5 speed are expected draw attention towards the middle of the field and away from the dynamic receiver duo of Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson in the coming season.

  • Bryan Walters WR | JAC

    Jaguars' Bryan Walters: Placed on IR with foot injury

    Walters (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Walters recently hurt his foot in the Jaguars' offseason program. He should be able to retain his role as a punt returner on special teams if he can get healthy in time for the regular season, though it would also take the team choosing him as its IR player designated for return.

  • Deshon Foxx WR | NYJ

    Jets' Deshon Foxx: Lands deal with Jets

    Foxx signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

    Foxx, who was waived by the Jets two weeks ago, will get another shot with the team after Devin Smith (knee) went down with yet another ACL tear.

  • Bryce Harris T | MIA

    Saints' Bryce Harris: Signs with Saints

    Harris signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, Herbie Teope of NOLA.com reports.

    Harris attended the Saints' three-day rookie minicamp on a tryout basis and showed enough potential to land a contract. He'll look to secure a depth role, likely at tackle, ahead of the season opener.

  • Patriots' DeAndrew White: Re-signs with Patriots

    White signed a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Tyler Sullivan of the team's official site reports.

    White spent the 2016 season on the Patriots' practice squad. He's a longshot to make the roster unless he impresses in a big way on special teams.

  • Tourek Williams OLB | LAC

    Chiefs' Tourek Williams: Signs with Chiefs

    Williams signed a contract with the Chiefs on Monday, Adam Caplan of NFL.com reports.

    Williams is entering his fifth season in the league and will provide veteran depth at outside linebacker and special teams if he makes the team.

  • Jerod Evans QB | PHI

    Jerod Evans: Reaches injury settlement with Eagles

    Evans (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Eagles on Monday, NFL.com's Adam Caplan reports.

    Evans signed with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent this offseason but quickly landed on IR after injuring his foot. However, after reaching an injury settlement Monday, he'll now head back to the free-agent market.

  • Alex Mack C | ATL

    Falcons' Alex Mack: Recovered from postseason leg injury

    Mack has recovered from the broken fibula he sustained in the Falcons' 2016 postseason run, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Mack suffered a hairline fracture in his left fibula during the NFC championship game against the Packers, although the injury ultimately wasn't enough to keep him from taking part in the Super Bowl. Fortunately, he recovered in time for the start of the start of the Falcons' OTAs, which begin on May 30.

  • Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Transitioning to left tackle

    Humphries (concussion) will transition to left tackle in 2017, Vince Marotta of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

    Humphries, who missed the final two games of the 2016 season with a concussion, reported to the Cardinals' first day of OTAs on Monday and wasn't reported to be under any limitations. In regard to his position change, Arizona is simply flip-flopping its 2015 first-round pick with veteran Jared Veldheer, who manned the left tackle role last season, in order to begin grooming the team's left tackle of the future sooner rather than later.
