    • Blake Bortles JAC QB
      Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Inks extension with Jags
      16h ago

      The Jaguars signed Bortles (wrist) to a two-year contact extension Saturday, The Florida Times-Union reports.

      Bortles was slated to earn $19 million in 2018 after the Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option of his rookie contract, but the team opted to lock him up through 2020 with a new three-year deal worth $54 million, with $26.5 million guaranteed according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The 25-year-old was expected to remain in Jacksonville and the new deal confirms it, but the guaranteed money does limit the team's long-term commitment.

      Patriots' Martellus Bennett: Hopes to play in 2018
      2d ago

      Bennett (shoulder) wants to return to the football field for the 2018 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Bennett indicated plans to retire before being waived by the Packers in November, and subsequently claimed by the Patriots. The 30-year-old appeared in only two games for New England before landing on injured reserve, and is due a two million dollar roster bonus March 14, which makes him a potential cap casualty.

      Adams signed a contract with Indianapolis on Friday, Colts' public relations assistant Christian Edwards reports.

      Adams has been around the NFL since 2015 but has only played in 12 games over his three year career, amassing 21 tackles in those tilts. He started the season on the Raiders before being released in October. He'll look to catch on as a depth linebacker and special teams player while with the Colts in 2018.

    • David Harris NE LB
      David Harris: Announces retirement from NFL
      2d ago

      Harris announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

      Prior to his surprising release last summer, Harris was a consistent force in the middle of the Jets' defense for years after the team traded up to select the Michigan product in the second round of the 2007 draft. He ultimately racked up the second-most tackles in Jets history (1,087) during his 10 seasons with Gang Green and goes down as one of the team's all-time great defenders despite being perennially underrated by the media. Factoring in his one-year stint in New England, Harris will finish his career with 1,109 tackles, 36.5 sacks, six interceptions and 11 forced fumbles over 164 career games.

      Saints' Cameron Jordan: Undergoes foot surgery
      2d ago

      Jordan recently underwent minor surgery on his left foot, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      Jordan, who currently requires a protective boot and scooter to move around, reportedly underwent a voluntary procedure that had more to do with "pain tolerance" than anything else. The fact that he played in the Pro Bowl prior to undergoing surgery suggests the situation truly is minor in nature. The 2017 All-Pro defensive end is expected to be recovered within 4-6 weeks and should therefore be healthy in time for the Saints' offseason program this spring.

    • Marcus Peters KC CB
      Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Traded to Rams
      2d ago

      The Chiefs agreed to trade Peters to the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      The deal won't officially go through until March 14, while the Chiefs are expected to receive a package of draft picks in return. It's a surprising move for a Kansas City team that could've kept Peters around for two more years on his current rookie deal, especially when considering the 2015 first-rounder has seven more interceptions than any other player in the league since 2015, including the playoffs. By comparison, only Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed had more interceptions (22) in his first three seasons than Peters' 21. The newly signed David Amerson and newly acquired Kyle Fuller will likely take over as the Chiefs' top cornerbacks in advance of the 2018 season, though it's possible Kansas City could add another talent to the mix.

    • Tyrod Taylor BUF QB
      Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Expected to stick with Buffalo
      3d ago

      The Bills aren't planning on cutting Taylor (concussion) during the offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Buffalo had considered getting rid of Taylor last offseason before he agreed to a restructured two-year contract, but that hardly gave the 28-year-old much job security heading into 2017. Another parting of ways seemed imminent after a healthy Taylor was benched in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman in the Week 11 game against the Chargers, though the veteran quickly recaptured the starting gig and helped lead the Bills to the postseason for the first time since 1999. Taylor's shortcomings as a passer were plainly visible in a wild-card round loss Jacksonville, wherein he completed 17 of 37 passes for 134 yards, no touchdowns and an interception before exiting on the final drive with a concussion, but there's something to be said about his mobility and ability to avoid turnovers, even though the latter often comes at the expense of big plays downfield. It's unknown if the Bills' current inclination to keep Taylor has more to do with the coaching staff coming around to recognize his strengths or a dissatisfaction with the quarterback options likely to be available via the draft or free agency, but for now, it sounds like Taylor's starting job could be safe, or at the very least he'll have a chance to fight for it. Taylor is owed a $10 million base salary for the coming season and is due a $6 million roster bonus March 16.

    • Trevor Siemian DEN QB
      Broncos' Trevor Siemian: On trade block
      4d ago

      Siemian (shoulder) is expected to be available via trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Denver appears ready to move on from their 2015 seventh-round pick as they look to find a signal caller with higher upside to lead its offense. In fact, management is expected to "aggressively" address the quarterback position in free agency and the draft. It isn't clear how much demand Siemian could demand via trade or what teams might be interested, but he has a connection with an assistant coach on the quarterback-needy Jets in run-game coordinator and offensive line coach Rick Dennison, who was the Broncos offensive coordinator in 2016 when Siemian threw for his career-best 3,401 yards and 18 touchdowns in 14 games. With Brock Osweiler set to be an unrestricted free agent, the Broncos otherwise have Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly (wrist) under contract for 2018.

    • Andrew Luck IND QB
      Colts' Andrew Luck: Throwing weighted balls rather than football
      4d ago

      Updating a previous report, Luck (shoulder) has resumed throwing weighted balls rather than a football, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Considering that the weighted balls are heavier than the football, Luck's announcement Tuesday that he has ruled out the possibility of a second surgery on his throwing shoulder seems to have some merit. Now throwing for the first time since being shut down in late October, Luck's progress will likely be monitored extra carefully as the Colts aim to get him ready for the 2018 campaign after he was sidelined for all of last season. According to Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star, Luck, who is training in California with noted quarterback and throwing motion gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, said that his main focus at this time is strengthening the muscles around the shoulder to make sure he's capable of handling a full workload by the time the upcoming season starts. It remains to be seen if he'll rejoin the Colts for Organized Team Activities this spring or if he'll be on the field for the start of training camp in the summer.

    • Andrew Luck IND QB
      Colts' Andrew Luck: Starts throwing football again
      5d ago

      Luck (shoulder) has started throwing a football and doesn't believe he'll need another surgery, the Indianapolis Star reports. "That ship has sailed in my mind, which is also a bit of relief now, if I'm not going to lie," Luck said of the possibility of another surgery on his shoulder.

      Luck has been working with quarterbacking gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux in Los Angeles and is throwing the football and strengthening his shoulder. Luck missed the 2017 season after surgery in January 2017 to repair a torn labrum and was shut down in October after he had soreness during a throwing program. With his recent progress, Luck could be ready to participate in Indy's offseason workouts in late April. Despite the improvement, we may not have a real idea if Luck can return to an NFL game until he's seen throwing in team workouts this spring or summer.

      Chris Ivory: Released by Jaguars
      2d ago

      Ivory was released by the Jaguars on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

      Ivory hasn't been the player Jacksonville thought he could be when it gave him a five-year, $32 million contract in the 2016 offseason, as the 2015 Pro Bowler managed a lackluster 3.6 YPC and just four touchdowns in two seasons. The Jaguars simply couldn't afford his price tag while also having the league's fourth-highest paid running back, Leonard Fournette, under contract, especially considering Ivory's running style essentially renders him a much less dynamic version of Jacksonville's young workhorse. Releasing Ivory saves the team roughly $3.68 million in cap space and leaves T.J. Yeldon as the clear backup to Fournette.

He eventually reached an injury settlement with the club and was on the market until his signing Thursday. The second-year tailback will likely compete to earn a special teams spot with the Bucs during 2018.

    • Charles Sims TB RB
      Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Role likely same if retained
      3d ago

      Sims, who will become an unrestricted free agent March 14, would likely remain in a change-of-pace role next season if retained by the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

      Sims saw even less action on the ground than in previous seasons in 2017, despite the since-released Doug Martin having endured a three-game suspension, injury and ultimately, a benching. The former West Virginia standout earned a career-low 21 carries, though he did post the second-best reception (35) and receiving yardage (249) totals of his four NFL seasons. Given that Sims has never logged more than 107 totes in any season as a professional, it's unclear whether any potential suitor sees him an all-around back.

    • Peyton Barber TB RB
      Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Candidate to replace released Martin
      3d ago

      Barber is one of the Buccaneers' top internal options to replace Doug Martin, who was released Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

      The 23-year-old Barber is technically an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, but it's fully expected he'll be retained in 2018. Barber established career bests across the stat sheet in his second season and already displaced Martin as the top backfield option for the final five games. Despite poor blocking in front on him, Barber often proved adept at finding space while Martin failed to do so, demonstrating the power and efficiency befitting of a lead back by averaging between 4.1 and 4.8 yards per carry in five of the seven games in which he logged double-digit totes. Having incurred low mileage over his first pair of pro seasons, Barber will be poised to challenge for the role of No. 1 back alongside Jacquizz Rodgers and potential additions via the draft or free agency.

    • Jacquizz Rodgers TB RB
      Buccaneers' Jacquizz Rodgers: Candidate to replace released Martin
      3d ago

      Rodgers is considered an internal option to replace the since-released Doug Martin as the Buccaneers' lead back in 2018, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

      Rodgers finished the 2017 campaign with just 73 total touches from scrimmage, a modest workload considering he had been the de facto lead back for the first three games of the season while Martin finished serving a suspension. Given his ability to contribute on offense and special teams along with his reasonable $1.6 million cap hit for 2018, Rodgers seems likely to return to Tampa Bay during the upcoming season and could get the opportunity to compete with Peyton Barber for the top spot on the depth chart. It's quite likely, however, that the Buccaneers bring in multiple reinforcements at running back through free agency and/or the draft.

    • Doug Martin TB RB
      Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Released by Tampa Bay
      5d ago

      The Buccaneers released Martin on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      After following up a strong rookie year in 2012 with back-to-back disappointing seasons, Martin temporarily quieted his critics by amassing 1,673 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns in 2015, netting him a five-year, $35.75 million contract extension the following spring. However, Martin regressed badly thereafter, averaging less than three yards per carry in both of the past two seasons while missing time due to injury and an untimely four-game suspension, which delayed the start to his 2017 campaign. In cutting Martin loose, the Buccaneers will save $6.75 million against the cap in 2018 while taking on no dead money due to the structure of the contract. Martin's departure currently leaves Peyton Barber as the top candidate to start at running back in 2018, though there's a decent possibility the Buccaneers address the position through the draft or free agency in the coming months.

      Sanders sustained a "major" sprained ankle and tibia contusion in Week 5 against the Giants and his recovery has been complicated by swelling, a limited range of motion and diminished strength, according to the doctor in charge of his rehabilitation. However, barring any setbacks, it sounds like he could be recovered in time for OTAs in late April or early May.

      As of early January, Robinson had been limited to running on an anti-gravity treadmill, so his activity Wednesday amounts to a step forward, if only an incremental one. The wideout previously stated that he's experienced no setbacks from a torn ACL suffered in Week 1 of last season and thinks he'll be able to pass a physical by mid-March, when free agency will open. Assuming the Jaguars concur with Robinson's assessment of his health, expect the team to do its best to retain the 24-year-old, either by slapping its franchise tag on him or signing him to a lucrative contract extension.

    • Josh Gordon CLE WR
      Browns' Josh Gordon: Will be exclusive rights free agent

      Gordon will be an exclusive rights free agent rather than a restricted free agent this offseason, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

      Gordon, whose return to the Browns on Dec. 3 against the Chargers marked his first NFL action in nearly three years, finished the past campaign with five appearances, which wasn't enough for him to accrue a full season of service time. The extensive time Gordon has missed due to suspension will keep him under club control through at least 2018 and prevent him from negotiating with other teams this spring. Assuming he can stay on the straight and narrow during the offseason, Gordon, who caught 18 passes for 335 yards and a score in his five outings, profiles as the Browns' clear top pass-catching option during the upcoming season.

      Jackson's Chevy Silverado was left abandoned at the scene of a crash on Christmas Eve, with police finding marijuana and hollow-point bullets in the vehicle. A spokesman for the Tampa Police Department said that because there weren't any witnesses or other evidence to place Jackson or another driver behind the wheel at the time of the crash, the case will become inactive. Jackson isn't set to face any discipline from the NFL or the Buccaneers and should be in store for a normal offseason after recording 50 catches for 668 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games during his first campaign in Tampa Bay.

      Ravens' Crockett Gillmore: Transitioning to offensive line

      Gillmore (knee), who has played tight end since entering the NFL in 2014, is in the process of transitioning to the offensive line, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

      Gillmore, who has been limited to just 17 appearances over his past three seasons with the Ravens, was sidelined all of last season while recovering from surgery to address an MCL injury, which he sustained early in training camp. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds last season, the 26-year-old has reportedly added considerable bulk to help with the transition. In addition, Gillmore has spent his offseason training with former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley to improve his blocking technique. Given his lack of prior experience at guard or tackle -- his most likely new positions -- Gillmore may have to settle for a short-term deal when he hits free agency this summer and could face an uphill battle to earn a 53-man roster spot for any team that he might join.

      The Jaguars declined Rivera's (wrist) $1.25 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, making the tight end an unrestricted free agent March 14, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

      Rivera will finish his Jacksonville tenure without ever having played a down after a preseason wrist injury resulted in the Jaguars shuffling him to injured reserve prior to the opener. The 27-year-old was at risk of being cut following the preseason even if he had stayed healthy, so it wasn't a major surprise the Jaguars decided to part ways with him. Rivera displayed some aptitude as a pass catcher during his first four seasons in the league with the Raiders, but his poor blocking is something that could limit him to a deep reserve role no matter where he lands next.

      While Lewis' salary isn't guaranteed for 2018, the transaction more or less indicates the Jaguars plan on bringing the tight end back for a 13th season. Lewis has long been a tertiary member of the Jaguars' passing attack, but his marks of 318 yards and five touchdowns last season were his best since 2013, though the production was mostly inflated by an outlier 62-yard, three-score performance in Week 3. Since Lewis is set to turn 34 years old in May, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Jaguars made adding a developmental tight end a priority during the early rounds of the draft in April.

      The Lions exercised Ebron's $8.25 million fifth-year option for 2018 last May, but the team could cut him with few repercussions before the new league year opens March 14. Though the Lions have since hired Matt Patricia as their new head coach, it appears Ebron, who has been criticized for drops over his four years in the league, remains in solid standing with the organization after a strong finish to this past season. Ebron hauled in 33 of 47 targets for 340 yards and two touchdowns over the Lions' final seven games, with his catch and yardage totals ranking second and third, respectively, on the team over that span.

      Olsen fractured his foot in a Week 2 game against the Bills and returned from injured reserve in Week 12 to play 24 snaps in a win over the Jets, only to suffer a setback in the contest. The recurring soreness in Olsen's foot resulted in him sitting out Week 13, but the veteran tight end suited up and played normal snap counts in the Panthers' final four regular-season contests and looked like his usual, dominant self in Carolina's playoff loss to New Orleans, catching eight of 12 targets for 107 yards and a score. After ending the injury-marred campaign on a high note, Olsen looks like he'll be in store for a normal offseason as he enters the final year of his contract in 2018.

      3d ago

      The Buccaneers released Folk on Thursday.

      With Folk set to become an unrestricted free agent March 14 and the Buccaneers having no intention of re-signing him, Tampa Bay likely chose to cut the kicker loose so he could get an early start on finding work. The 33-year-old won the Buccaneers' kicking job in training camp last fall but held onto the role for only four games after missing seven kicks (five field goals, two extra points) on only 20 attempts. Rather than releasing him in favor of replacement Patrick Murray, the Buccaneers shifted Folk to injured reserve while he dealt with a minor knee injury that he's since recovered from. Given his underwhelming accuracy in recent years, Folk may only be signed as camp competition rather than as a team's top choice to win the kicking gig.

      The Colts and Vinatieri agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

      Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis first reported Wednesday that the two parties were working on an extension, and now Vinatieri's return for a 23rd NFL season and 13th in Indianapolis is official. With a 29-for-34 mark on field-goal attempts last season -- including a 5-for-6 showing from 50-plus yards -- Vinatieri showed no signs of decline despite turning 45 years old in December. Assuming he's able to maintain the accuracy he's displayed in recent years, Vinatieri could be in store for an uptick in the 109 points he tallied in 2017. The Indianapolis offense should benefit greatly from the expected return of franchise signal caller Andrew Luck from shoulder surgery, which sidelined him for all 16 games last season.

Though a weak Colts offense limited Vinatieri to just 109 points last season -- his second-lowest total of the past six seasons -- his scoring output could recover with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) on the mend and expected to be back under center after missing all of the past season. Assuming health prevails in 2018, Vinatieri should become the NFL's all-time leading scorer at some point during the middle of the season, as he's just 57 points shy of matching Morten Andersen's record total (2,544).

      Succop signed a five-year, $20 million extension with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

      It was a career year for Succop in 2017, as the kicker made 35 of 42 field-goal attempts. He also set an NFL record by connecting on 56 straight field goals from inside the 50-yard line, which dates back to 2014. His 35 made field goals and 136 points were career highs, and he was also named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September.

      David Harris: Announces retirement from NFL
      2d ago

      Harris announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

      Prior to his surprising release last summer, Harris was a consistent force in the middle of the Jets' defense for years after the team traded up to select the Michigan product in the second round of the 2007 draft. He ultimately racked up the second-most tackles in Jets history (1,087) during his 10 seasons with Gang Green and goes down as one of the team's all-time great defenders despite being perennially underrated by the media. Factoring in his one-year stint in New England, Harris will finish his career with 1,109 tackles, 36.5 sacks, six interceptions and 11 forced fumbles over 164 career games.

      Saints' Cameron Jordan: Undergoes foot surgery
      2d ago

      Jordan recently underwent minor surgery on his left foot, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      Jordan, who currently requires a protective boot and scooter to move around, reportedly underwent a voluntary procedure that had more to do with "pain tolerance" than anything else. The fact that he played in the Pro Bowl prior to undergoing surgery suggests the situation truly is minor in nature. The 2017 All-Pro defensive end is expected to be recovered within 4-6 weeks and should therefore be healthy in time for the Saints' offseason program this spring.

    • Marcus Peters KC CB
      Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Traded to Rams
      2d ago

      The Chiefs agreed to trade Peters to the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      The deal won't officially go through until March 14, while the Chiefs are expected to receive a package of draft picks in return. It's a surprising move for a Kansas City team that could've kept Peters around for two more years on his current rookie deal, especially when considering the 2015 first-rounder has seven more interceptions than any other player in the league since 2015, including the playoffs. By comparison, only Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed had more interceptions (22) in his first three seasons than Peters' 21. The newly signed David Amerson and newly acquired Kyle Fuller will likely take over as the Chiefs' top cornerbacks in advance of the 2018 season, though it's possible Kansas City could add another talent to the mix.

      Adjei-Barimah won't be tendered by the Buccaneers and will become a free agent, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Adjei-Barimah missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury but was just cleared by his surgeon to resume football activities this week. Only 25, the cornerback has starting experience dating back to 2015 and could attract the attention of several teams, if he can remain healthy throughout the offseason.

      Glanton (lower leg) won't be tendered by the Buccaneers and will become a free agent, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Glanton broke his leg in the season finale and likely won't be signed until he's fully recovered from his injury, which figures to be around April. Expect the linebacker to sign with Tampa Bay or another team once he's healthy.
