  • Eric Ebron TE | DET

    Colts' Eric Ebron: Lands deal in Indy

    The Colts and Ebron reached agreement on a two-year contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Selected 10th overall by the Lions in the 2014 draft, Ebron was unable to uphold lofty expectations, despite earning at least 52 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the last three seasons. If one cherry picks his best marks in each category, the line reads 61 catches (in 2016) on 86 targets (2017) for 711 yards (2016) and five touchdowns (2015). Overall, he averaged just 7.2 YPT and caught a TD every 16.9 receptions as a Lion, but working in his favor with the Colts will be the attention paid to No. 1 tight end Jack Doyle by opposing defenses. If Andrew Luck (shoulder) is able to play a majority of the upcoming campaign, Ebron could benefit further in weekly box scores.

  • Pat Elflein C | MIN

    Vikings' Pat Elflein: Trending up as spring inches closer

    Elflein (ankle) should be ready to participate in OTAs and mandatory minicamp this spring, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Elflein sustained a broken left ankle during the Vikings' loss to the Eagles in last season's NFC championship game. While the report did not guarantee he'd be 100 percent by the time spring rolls around, it went as far as to hint that Elflein is likely to be available at some point. With ankle surgery in the rearview mirror, as long as Elflein avoids any unforeseen setbacks, it looks as if he'll be healthy well before the start of the regular season.

  • Dylan Donahue LB | NYJ

    Jets' Dylan Donahue: Has two arrests in past year

    Donahue's arrest in Weehawken, N.J. last month was his second related to alcohol and driving in the last year, Darryl Slater of reports.

    On the morning of Feb. 26, Donahue allegedly drove the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel and induced a crash with a bus. He subsequently was charged with DWI and reckless driving, the former of which could subject him to discipline under the NFL's substance abuse policy. Monday's news included another accusation in the same realm. Last May 9, or 10 days after he was selected in the fifth round of the draft, Donahue's SUV was discovered on its roof with the linebacker behind the wheel in Billings, Mont. For that infraction, he was charged with misdemeanor DUI. Both cases will have to play out before the league makes a judgement, but a suspension is likely with two transgressions on his record.

  • Bills' Marshall Newhouse: Signs with Buffalo

    Newhouse signed with the Bills on Monday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

    As part of the Bills' initiative to revamp its offensive line, the team has agreed to a one-year deal with Newhouse. The 29-year-old will bring with him a tremendous amount of NFL experience and could be a starter at one of the tackle spots for the season opener.

  • Bills' Russell Bodine: Inks deal with Buffalo

    Bodine signed with the Bills on Monday.

    Bodine has started every game since coming into the league back in 2014. While he's got a long way to go before he can catch up to Joe Thomas, the 25-year-old's durability provides the Bills with a replacement for retired center Eric Wood (neck).

  • Josh Mauro DE | ARI

    Giants' Josh Mauro: Inks deal with Giants

    Mauro signed with the Giants on Monday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

    Mauro spent the past four seasons in Arizona, where he racked up 75 combined tackles and two sacks over the course of 47 gamess. It's unclear how he'll fit in with New York, but the 27-year-old has ties to new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher, who held the same position with the Cardinals from 2015 through 2017.

  • C.J. Smith CB | CLE

    Seahawks' C.J. Smith: Shipped to Seattle for conditional 2020 pick

    Smith was traded to the Seahawks on Monday.

    The Browns opted to ship Smith to the Pacific Northwest for a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick. Smith, 24, has appeared in just 13 combined games for the Eagles and Browns since entering the league back in 2016.

  • Shea McClellin OLB | NE

    Shea McClellin: Cut by New England

    McClellin (concussion) was released by the Patriots on Monday, Mike Reiss of reports.

    Per the report, McClellin's release stems from a failed physical, which may stem from missing the entirety of the 2017 season due to the aftereffects of a concussion. The 28-year-old should draw attention from other teams.

  • Mike Pouncey C | MIA

    Chargers' Mike Pouncey: Packs up, heads to Los Angeles

    Pouncey inked a two-year deal with the Chargers on Monday.

    Following his release from the Dolphins, Pouncey will look to rejuvenate his career on the west coast. He's considered to be one the league's most dependable centers and should provide stability for the Chargers at the position.

  • Xavier Cooper DE | NYJ

    Jets' Xavier Cooper: Re-signs one-year deal to stay in New York

    Cooper re-signed with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    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.
