  • Jaguars' Lerentee McCray: Staying in Jacksonville

    The Jaguars picked up McCray's contract option for 2019 on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

    McCray made nine tackles (six solo) and one sack across 13 games with the Jaguars during the 2018 season. The 28-year-old mostly made his mark on special teams, and appears on track to return in a similar role in 2019.

  • Cody Davis DB | JAC

    Jaguars' Cody Davis: Jaguars exercise 2019 option

    The Jaguars picked up Davis' contract option for 2019 on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

    Davis is a core contributor on special teams in Jacksonville, and led the team with 10 special teams tackles in 2018. The 29-year-old nonetheless remains firmly off the IDP radar, having played only 12 defensive snaps last season.

  • Jaguars' Calais Campbell: Remaining in Jacksonville

    The Jaguars exercised Campbell's contract option for 2019 on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

    Campbell led Jacksonville in sacks (10.5) during the 2018 season, and also racked up 72 tackles (53 solo) and one forced fumble across 16 games. The 32-year-old is one of the Jaguars' most reliable defensive players and a team captain. Coming strong off his second consecutive Pro Bowl season, Campbell will work to extend that streak into 2019.

  • David Irving DT | DAL

    Cowboys' David Irving: Expected to leave Dallas

    Irving (ankle) isn't expected to re-sign with the Cowboys, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Irving recorded four tackles and one sack across just two games with the Cowboys in 2018, as his season was derailed by personal issues and a high-ankle sprain. The Cowboys reportedly do not intend to pick up Irving's 2019 option, in which case the defensive tackle will become a free agent in March. It's worth noting there are reports that Irving missed multiple drug tests from the league office in 2018.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Headed for free agency

    The Jaguars announced Monday that they won't exercise Seferian-Jenkins' contract option for 2019, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

    Seferian-Jenkins logged 11 receptions for 90 yards and one touchdown across five games with the Jaguars in 2018, before his season was cut short due to a core-muscle injury. Jacksonville signed the tight end after his 2017 career year with the Jets, during which time he recorded 50 catches for 357 yards and three touchdowns, and now elects to part ways with the 26-year-old after a single season. Seferian-Jenkins is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 13, at the start of the league year.

  • Terrance Williams: Cut by Cowboys

    Williams (foot) has been cut loose by the Cowboys, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Williams made it through two seasons of a four-year, $17 million contract, receiving a $5 million signing bonus and $4.5 million in guaranteed base salaries, per overthecap.com. The Cowboys didn't get much of a return, with Williams posting a 53-568-0 receiving line on 78 targets (7.3 YPT) in 2017, then playing just three games in 2018 while dealing with a suspension and foot injury. The 29-year-old should regain his health at some point this offseason, but his days as an NFL starter may be numbered. The Cowboys will move forward with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup locked in as the starting wide receivers outside.

  • Trent Richardson: Finding end zone in AAF

    Richardson has taken 42 carries for 99 yards and three touchdowns in two games with the Birmingham Iron of the Alliance of American Football.

    Richardson leads the league in carries and rushing TDs, but his mark of 2.4 YPC is the worst among all players with double-digit opportunities. It's only fair to note that the goal-line chances weigh down his average, and he does have seven receptions for 64 yards. The 2012 first-round pick still has more work to do before NFL teams can view him as a serious option to compete for a 2019 roster spot.

  • Landon Collins SS | NYG

    Giants' Landon Collins: May get tagged

    Collins (shoulder) is a strong candidate for the franchise tag, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

    Collins had surgery Dec. 11 to repair a torn labrum, missing the final four weeks of the regular season and then sitting out the Pro Bowl. He did mention in late December that he'd be fine with playing under the franchise tag, which is expected to cost approximately $11 million for safeties. The 25-year-old has started his career with four straight seasons averaging at least 6.9 tackles per game, but he didn't do much else on the stat sheet in 2018. He did have 125 tackles, five INTS and four sacks during his breakout 2016 campaign, finishing third in DPOY voting behind Khalil Mack and Von Miller. The Giants presumably will discuss a long-term deal with Collins, but it won't come as any surprise if they're hesitant to pay top dollar for a safety without first-rate coverage skills.

  • 49ers' Robbie Gould: Headed for franchise tag

    Gould is expected to receive the franchise tag, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The 49ers got their money's worth on a two-year, $4 million contract, with Gould converting 72 of 75 field-goal attempts (96 percent) and 55 of 59 PAT tries (93.2 percent). The 36-year-old is now headed for a significant raise, be it through a long-term contract or a franchise tag for approximately $5 million. Given their abundance of cap space and determination to compete for the playoffs in 2019, the Niners presumably won't allow Gould to slip away. He'll rightfully be drafted as a top-10 kicker so long as Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) avoids major rehab setbacks.

  • Derrius Guice RB | WAS

    Redskins' Derrius Guice: Discusses rehab progress

    Guice (knee) provided a detailed account of his rehab process Monday on the Redskins' official website, noting that he's regained his upper body strength and resumed sprinting but isn't yet ready for full-speed lateral movement.

    While he isn't ready to discuss a timeline, Guice did provide some useful details on his recent progress, with an emphasis on rebuilding strength/flexibility in his lower body after a post-surgery infection required additional procedures and a lengthy period of rest. He spent most of his time in Louisiana and Florida during the early phase of recovery, eventually returning to the Redskins' team facility in Virginia toward the end of the regular season. The 21-year-old running back now seems to be making up for lost time, working aggressively with the team training staff and rarely traveling back home. Guice will be 13 months removed from the initial injury when Washington takes the field for Week 1 in 2019.
