Darren McFadden RB - DAL Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said McFadden...
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said McFadden is "still in the picture" for the Dallas running game, the team's official website reports.
Impacts: McFadden and Alfred Morris both saw their 2016 stock plummet when the Cowboys drafted Ezekiel Elliott at No. 4 overall. The rookie profiles as a three-down workhorse in the NFL, possibly even taking on such a role by Week 1. McFadden won't necessarily disappear from the offense, but it's quite possible that he merely ends up battling Morris and sixth round pick Darius Jackson for whatever scraps Elliott leaves behind. Granted, there might still be handcuff appeal in such a scenario, as the Cowboys have a phenomenal offensive line.By Rotowire.com
C.J. Anderson RB - DEN Devontae Booker (knee), who was selected...
Devontae Booker (knee), who was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, could push Anderson and Ronnie Hillman for playing time, ESPN reports.
Impacts: Widely viewed as one of the three or four best running backs in his class, the 23-year-old fell to Denver in the fourth round, perhaps because of concerns regarding his knee and age. Now three months removed from surgery to repair a torn meniscus, Booker should be ready for the start of training camp, where he'll likely kick things off as the third or fourth running back on the depth chart. The rookie should at least have a shot to compete for a role, but Anderson remains the clear favorite for lead-back duties, having signed a four-year, $18 million contract this offseason. Ronnie Hillman could also be in the mix, as the Broncos may need to lean heavily on their running game.By Rotowire.com
Alfred Morris RB - DAL Morris said he doesn't regret his decisi...
Morris said he doesn't regret his decision to sign in Dallas, even after the Cowboys selected fellow running back Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the team's official site reports.
Impacts: There isn't really anything else for Morris to say, as his declining production and modest contract don't leave him in a position to complain or make demands. He was previously expected to compete with Darren McFadden for early-down work, but it now appears Ezekiel Elliott will serve as the lead back. As a likely backup with limited receiving skills, Morris has a difficult path to fantasy relevance. McFadden, or even sixth round pick Darius Jackson, may end up as the preferred handcuff for the Cowboys' prized rookie.By Rotowire.com
Matthew Stafford QB - DET Stafford got some help in the 2016 NFL D...
Stafford got some help in the 2016 NFL Draft, with Detroit selecting three offensive linemen in the first five rounds, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: Addressing an obvious weakness from 2015, the Lions drafted OT Taylor Decker in the first round, center Graham Glasgow in the third and guard/tackle Joe Dahl in the fifth. Stafford won't have Calvin Johnson around to bail him out, yet it's still quite possible the Detroit offense will be improved from 2015. Stafford played much better last season after Jim Bob Cooter replaced Joe Lombardi as the offensive coordinator, making it an easy decision to stick with Cooter for 2016. Furthermore, the Lions signed WR Marvin Jones to a five-year, $40 million contract, and there's hope that 23-year-old TE Eric Ebron will take a big step forward in his third NFL season.By Rotowire.com
Robert Griffin QB - CLE Griffin's new team waited until late in...
Griffin's new team waited until late in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft to select a quarterback, going with USC product Cody Kessler at No. 93 overall, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: After Griffin signed a two-year, $15 million contract in late March, it was widely reported that his addition wouldn't necessarily preclude the Browns from taking a quarterback early in the draft. Instead, the team traded down in the first round multiple times, eventually selecting Baylor WR Corey Coleman at No. 15 overall. A Baylor product himself, Griffin is likely thrilled about how the draft turned out, with Cleveland further bolstering its receiving corps by selecting WR Ricardo Louis (fourth round), TE Seth Devalve (fourth), WR Jordan Payton (fifth), and WR Rashard Higgins (fifth) in the middle rounds. Though he'll presumably have to compete for the job, Griffin is the favorite to start in Week 1 for a rebuilding Browns team, as he offers greater long-term potential than either Kessler or 36-year-old Josh McCown.By Rotowire.com
Jay Ajayi RB - MIA Ajayi will face competition from Kenyan...
Ajayi will face competition from Kenyan Drake, who was selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft at No. 73 overall, the Dolphins' official website reports.
Impacts: Drake's selection can actually be taken as a positive development for Ajayi, who still figures to open training camp as the lead dog in a backfield that's utterly lacking in proven talent. Drake will likely compete for a role similar to the one he had at the University of Alabama, where he typically spelled T.J. Yeldon and then Derrick Henry, in addition to handling most of the passing-down work. The Dolphins could still make things interesting by adding a veteran from the free-agent market, though there isn't much of interest remaining besides a 29-year-old Arian Foster (Achilles).By Rotowire.com
Sam Bradford QB - PHI Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Bra...
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Bradford is missing out on valuable experience at offseason workouts and meetings, NFL.com reports.
Impacts: Displeased with his team's decision to trade up for fellow quarterback Carson Wentz, the 28-year-old Bradford is skipping voluntary activities while reportedly asking for a trade. Denver was mentioned as a possible destination prior to the draft, but any deal could prove difficult after Bradford signed a two-year, $36 million extension during the offseason. Furthermore, the Broncos selected QB Paxton Lynch in the first round, significantly decreasing the odds that the team would have interest in Bradford. Though seemingly still viewed as the likely starter, Bradford finds himself facing significant pressure, with the Eagles having also signed Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract in March. With such a crowd in the team's quarterback room, Bradford feels that he's merely biding time in Philadelphia while the team tries to replace him. Although he's correct, it's probably in his best interest to make peace with the unusual situation.By Rotowire.com
Tom Brady QB - NE Brady's four-game suspension -- which st...
Brady's four-game suspension -- which stemmed from the quarterback's alleged role in "Deflategate" -- was reinstated Monday by an appeals court ruling, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: With Monday's ruling, Brady is now in line to miss contests against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate. He would thus be eligible to make his regular season debut against the Browns in Week 5. It remains to be seen precisely what recourse the QB has with regard to the decision, but the stage is currently set for Jimmy Garoppolo to serve as the Patriots' starting signal-caller for the first quarter of the 2016 campaign.By Rotowire.com
Sam Bradford QB - PHI Bradford has informed the Eagles that he...
Bradford has informed the Eagles that he wants to be traded and will not participate in their offseason program any longer, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Impacts: Bradford's request for a trade comes after the Eagles traded into the draft's No. 2 slot, where they're widely expected to select another quarterback. That situation would cast a shadow over Bradford's starting position, something he evidently wouldn't appreciate after signing a two-year, $36 million extension with the team earlier this offseason. As a result, Bradford hopes to be dealt elsewhere in search of a less contentious starting gig, and will remain away from the Eagles while awaiting a trade.By Rotowire.com
Josh Norman CB - WAS Norman contacted Panthers team officials...
Norman contacted Panthers team officials in an attempt to sign his franchise tag shortly after Carolina rescinded its offer last week, The Charlotte Observer reports.
Impacts: Norman was reportedly blindsided by the Panthers withdrawing their offer, but hoped to sign his $13.95 million tag once the team's plan to move on from him was made public. However, with general manager Dave Gettleman unwilling to meet Norman's long-term contract demands, and also intrigued by the cap flexibility that would be opened by parting with Norman, the Panthers declined on Norman's offer to sign. From there, Norman ended up signing a record-setting five-year, $75 million deal with the Redskins, cementing his NFL future while making his departure from the Panthers official.By Rotowire.com
Trent Richardson RB - BAL Richardson, who once weighed as much as...
Richardson, who once weighed as much as 240 pounds, is now down to just 218 pounds, the Ravens' official website reports.
Impacts: Cut by the Raiders during training camp last year, the former No. 3 overall pick spent the entire 2015 regular season out of the NFL. Prior to that, Richardson was a major disappointment for both the Browns and Colts, with poor conditioning and family issues reportedly playing a role. The Ravens are giving him what may be his final shot in the NFL, but even if he's vastly improved, Richardson will likely just be competing for one of the final roster spots. Justin Forsett and Javorius Allen are still expected to battle for the starting job.By Rotowire.com
Josh Norman CB - WAS Norman signed a five-year, $75 million c...
Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Redskins on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Impacts: Norman refused to sign the franchise tag that would have netted him approximately $14 million in 2016 with the hopes of signing a bigger deal. While the Panthers were unwilling to do so and subsequently let him walk via free agency, it appears Washington will spend up following a 2016 campaign that moved him into elite status among cornerbacks. Considered a position of need heading into the draft, the Redskins will now likely pass on it early in the draft, while Norman figures to serve as the team's lockdown corner against the likes of Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr., who he will now face twice a year.By Rotowire.com
Josh Norman CB - CAR The Panthers have rescinded the franchis...
The Panthers have rescinded the franchise tag they had placed on Norman, NFL.com reports.
Impacts: As a result, the star cornerback becomes an unrestricted free agent, and based on a statement released by GM Dave Gettleman, it appears clear that the Panthers are indeed of a mind to move on from Norman. Per Gettleman: "After a number of conversations with Josh's agent we realized that a long-term deal was not attainable. We have decided to rescind the Franchise Tag freeing Josh to immediately become a UFA. We thank Josh for all his contributions and truly wish him well." The 28-year-old Norman is coming off a Pro Bowl season in 2015, in which he recorded 56 tackles, three forced fumbles and four picks in 16 games for the Panthers.By Rotowire.com
Ronnie Hillman RB - DEN Hillman has signed a one-year deal to re...
Hillman has signed a one-year deal to remain with the Broncos, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impacts: Now that Hillman is back in the fold, he'll work in a complementary role behind C.J. Anderson, whose four-year, $18-million offer sheet (from Miami) the Broncos elected to match. Also currently on the team's RB depth chart are Juwan Thompson, Kapri Bibbs, and Cyrus Gray. In 16 games with Denver last season, Hillman logged 207 carries for 863 yards and seven touchdowns, while adding 24 catches for 111 yards in that span.By Rotowire.com
Jordy Nelson WR - GB Nelson (knee) participated in the first...
Nelson (knee) participated in the first day of the Packers' offseason program Monday, and afterward assessed his rehab program by saying, "We're right where we want to be."
Impacts: Nelson characteristically didn't make any proclamations on when he'll be 100 percent, but it's telling that he reported no "mental blocks" or worries about losing a step after going through Monday's workout. Following the torn ACL suffered last preseason, all indications suggest that he's been recovering with great progress, shedding positive light on his outlook ahead of Week 1. Nonetheless, Nelson's involvement will have to be monitored throughout the build-up to this season, and onlookers should expect the Packers to take every precaution necessary with their star wideout.By Rotowire.com
Case Keenum QB - STL Keenum signed his first-round tender wit...
Keenum signed his first-round tender with the Rams on Monday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impacts: Keenum's deal will equate to about $3.6 million for this season, but with the Rams potentially drafting a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, it's unclear if Keenum's future remains in Los Angeles. With Nick Foles also on the Rams' roster after signing a two-year, $24.5 million deal last offseason, Keenum is a far more affordable trade option for potential suitors, though Los Angeles would probably rather get rid of Foles. Either way, it wouldn't surprise if one of the team's veteran signal-callers is dealt prior to training camp.By Rotowire.com
Josh Norman CB - CAR Norman will not report for the Panthers'...
Norman will not report for the Panthers' offseason workouts next week, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: Norman remains in search of a long-term extension with the Panthers, so he hasn't signed the roughly $14 million franchise tag offered to him last month. Until Carolina's management displays a willingness to come closer to the contract terms proposed by Norman's camp, he's expected to remain away from the team and cannot be fined for doing so, since he technically isn't under contract at the moment.By Rotowire.com
Josh Brown K - NYG Browns is slated to re-sign with the Gia...
Browns is slated to re-sign with the Giants on a two-year, $4 million deal, the New York Daily News reports.
Impacts: Brown is fresh off the best statistical season of his 13-year career, as he converted 30-of-32 field goal attempts for the Giants last year. Although he'll turn 37 years old soon, Brown has shown little signs of aging and should provide a reliable weapon in New York's kicking game for the next couple campaigns.By Rotowire.com
Nick Foles QB - STL Foles' future with the Rams is probably...
Foles' future with the Rams is probably the most uncertain among the team's quarterbacks, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impacts: Foles signed a lucrative two-year, $24.5 million contract after being traded to the Rams last offseason, but was eventually benched after failing to live up to expectations. Since then, the Rams have not only traded for the No. 1 pick in the draft, where they're expected to select a quarterback, but the team has also offered a first-round tender to Case Keenum and expressed interest in developing third-stringer Sean Mannion. That leaves Foles as a glorified reserve who could garner interest on the trade market, thus making his outlook this season potentially subject to change.By Rotowire.com
Trent Richardson RB - BAL Richardson has signed with the Ravens.
Richardson has signed with the Ravens.
Impacts: Richardson had been in talks with the Ravens for most of this offseason, and after working out for Baltimore again on Monday morning, the team signed him before the start of its offseason strength and conditioning program. After getting cut by the Raiders ahead of last season, he hasn't played since the 2014 campaign, when he averaged just 3.3 YPC on 159 carries and scored three times for the Colts. A noteworthy first-round bust, Richardson will hope to revive his career by first making the Ravens' roster this season.By Rotowire.com
Ryan Fitzpatrick QB - Fitzpatrick and the Jets are unlikely to...
Fitzpatrick and the Jets are unlikely to reach agreement on a new contract before next week's NFL Draft, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impacts: Fitzpatrick and the Jets remain far apart on terms to a new contract, which could lead the team to address the quarterback position through the draft. That being said, Fitzpatrick is fresh off a career-best 3,905 passing yards and 31 touchdowns last season, and his long-standing relationship with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey could prove invaluable to the Jets' hopes of making the playoffs this season. As a result, Fitzpatrick and New York could still reach a contract agreement, but it appears he'll have to wait a bit longer if that indeed comes to fruition.By Rotowire.com
Brian Hoyer QB - Hoyer has been released by the Texans,...
Hoyer has been released by the Texans, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impacts: With the Texans having signed quarterback Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million contract earlier this offseason, it's no surprise that Hoyer is moving on. He'll now look to catch on elsewhere, though it remains to be seen if Hoyer's next team signs him as clear backup, or presents him with an opportunity to compete for a starting job.By Rotowire.com
Brandon Browner CB - SEA The Seahawks have brought back Browner o...
The Seahawks have brought back Browner on a one-year contract with the team, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: Browner, who had left the Seahawks after the 2013 season, rejoins the team's cornerback mix, thus reuniting the nucleus of the original "Legion of Boom" secondary, which also includes Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas. In 16 games for the Saints last season, Browner -- who turns 32 in August -- notched 76 tackles and a pick, but was also was flagged for a staggering total 24 penalties in the span.By Rotowire.com
Tony Romo QB - DAL Romo said Saturday that his rehab from c...
Romo said Saturday that his rehab from collarbone surgery continues to go well and that he's been able to fully participate in his throwing program for over a week, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "It's been going great [during unofficial team workouts] for the last two, three weeks – just getting them going and being able to go full speed and all that stuff. It's been great," Romo said. "I can throw fully. I've been throwing fully here for a good week and a half, two weeks. It's been good."
Impacts: It's certainly encouraging that Romo's recovery has gone without a hitch so far, but there will still be a lot of question marks around the 36-year-old in 2016 after he played in just four games last season due to two collarbone fractures, and hasn't made it through a full 16-game schedule unscathed since 2012. If he's able to stay healthy, the Cowboys have the talent around him to make Romo a very productive fantasy QB, but at this point, that remains a very large 'if'.By Rotowire.com
Percy Harvin WR - Harvin (hip/knee) has reportedly told th...
Harvin (hip/knee) has reportedly told the Bills that he plans to retire as a player, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: Harvin, who turns 28 next month, has been limited by injuries over the past few seasons, thus cutting short a football career that once looked highly promising after the Vikings selected the dynamic offensive threat with the 22nd overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft.By Rotowire.com
Jimmy Graham TE - SEA Graham (knee) is expected to be ready to...
Graham (knee) is expected to be ready to play Week 1, general manager John Schneider told Seattle's KJR radio Wednesday.
Impacts: Graham ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee in Week 12 last season. Schneider said Graham might not be ready for the first couple preseason games, but that getting him ready for Week 1 is the priority. That still might be optimistic, as patella ruptures are notoriously severe injuries.By Rotowire.com
Josh Gordon WR - CLE The NFL has denied Gordon's request for...
The NFL has denied Gordon's request for reinstatement from his one-year suspension for repeated violations of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Gordon's next opportunity to apply for reinstatement will arrive on Aug. 1, according Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Impacts: On Monday, it was widely reported that Gordon had failed a drug test in March. Both the A and B samples were revealed to have "traces of marijuana and dilute," and despite the former falling short of the threshold required for a positive test, his presence in Stage 3 of the drug program sealed his fate. Once Aug. 1 rolls around, Gordon will have the chance to reapply, though commissioner Roger Goodell is notorious for taking longer than the 60-day mandate for a response recommended under the current CBA. As a result, Gordon is in danger of missing his second season in a row.By Rotowire.com
LeGarrette Blount RB - NE Blount has signed a one-year deal to rem...
Blount has signed a one-year deal to remain with the Patriots, NFL.com reports.
Impacts: The 29-year-old Blount, who landed on IR last December after suffering a chipped bone in his hip, is said to be back to 100 percent, so the 6-foot, 250-pounder will now look to reprise his role as the Patriots' top power back. While the terms of his deal with the team have not been made public, given that Blount lasted this long in free agency suggests that a team-friendly deal is in play here. When he was on the field in 2015, Blount logged 165 carries for 703 yards and six TDs over a 12 game span. His experience and level of success in the New England offense makes this a low-risk reunion, though the likes of Dion Lewis, James White, Donald Brown and Brandon Bolden remain in the mix for touches in the team's backfield. Moreover, it wouldn't surprise us to see the team land another running back option at or after the NFL draft later this month.By Rotowire.com
Josh Gordon WR - CLE ESPN.com relays that Gordon reportedly f...
ESPN.com relays that Gordon reportedly failed a drug test last month.
Impacts: Gordon, who remains suspended indefinitely by the NFL, had applied to the league for reinstatement this winter, but if this latest report is accurate, then his cause on the reinstatement front would obviously take a hit. Per NFL.com, the drug test said to be in question here "showed traces of marijuana and dilute." The talented 24-year-old wideout last took an NFL field for a game back on Dec. 21, 2014.By Rotowire.com
Thomas Rawls RB - SEA Rawls, who is bouncing back from a seaso...
Rawls, who is bouncing back from a season-ending broken ankle that he suffered in Week 14 last season, maintains that he plans to "be ready for (training) camp."
Impacts: "I'm just taking it day by day," Rawls noted with regard to his recovery from his ankle injury. "I'm getting better. I'm walking on my own, I'm doing a lot of good things, and my recovery is coming very quickly, so I'm looking forward to being out there very soon." Rawls, who ended up rushing for 830 yards and four touchdowns on 147 carries during his rookie season in 2015, appears poised to take over the Seahawks' starting tailback job from Marshawn Lynch, who announced his retirement as a player this offseason. Joining Rawls in the team's backfield mix at this time are Christine Michael and Cameron Marshall, but the team is sure to add some depth on that front, presumably no later than the upcoming NFL draft.By Rotowire.com
Justin Forsett RB - BAL Forsett, who is bouncing back from a bro...
Forsett, who is bouncing back from a broken arm that landed him on IR last season, noted recently that his recovery is progressing well, while adding that he has already resumed lifting weights.
Impacts: Moreover, the report notes that Forsett plans to undergo X-rays in the next week in order to see just how far along he is in his recovery, but at this stage, he expects to be back to 100 percent before too long. Once he is, Forsett is slated to approach offseason workouts "as the leader in the race" for the team's top running back job, but he'll face some competition on that front from the likes of Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West, and possibly Trent Richardson, who is expected to join the team's backfield mix. Before suffering his injury last November, Forsett started the Ravens' first 10 games of the 2015 season, recording 641 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 151 attempts, to go along with 31 catches for 153 receiving yards in that span.By Rotowire.com
Donte Whitner S - CLE Whitner was released by the Browns on Sa...
Whitner was released by the Browns on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Impacts: Whitner had a solid season in Cleveland, during which he was the second leading tackler on the team with 81 combined tackles to go along with 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. With as much productivity he had during his 2015-16 campaign, it's a bit of a surprise the Browns aren't keeping the 30-year-old around. Expect Whitner to sign on with another squad, but his IDP fantasy value may take a hit.By Rotowire.com
Brandon LaFell WR - CIN The Bengals and LaFell agreed to a contr...
The Bengals and LaFell agreed to a contract Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impacts: Cincinnati's receiving corps was laid bare in the opening days of free agency, as Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu landed elsewhere. There was little doubt that the front office would make a move for a veteran presence in advance of the NFL Draft, and LaFell should serve capably, but without flash. In six seasons with the Panthers and Patriots, he averaged 13.9 YPC while reaching the end zone 20 times in 87 games.By Rotowire.com
Arian Foster RB - Foster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins o...
Foster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins on Tuesday but left without a contract offer, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Afterward, Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Foster is "a little bit away" from being healthy.
Impacts: Foster is five months removed from tearing the Achilles in his right foot, so it's no surprise that he remains in the midst of rehabilitation. Coming off a three-year span in which he appeared in 25 of a possible 48 games, an incentive-laden deal is likely in the 29-year-old's future, but a team such as the Dolphins could use his veteran presence to groom 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi with Lamar Miller poised to serve as Foster's replacement in Houston. While other organizations are sure to inquire about Foster, his status for the 2016 campaign remains in limbo.By Rotowire.com
Stevan Ridley RB - Ridley will visit the Lions on Tuesday,...
Ridley will visit the Lions on Tuesday, the Detroit News reports.
Impacts: Coming off a torn ACL in October of 2014, Ridley gained 90 yards on just 36 carries in eight games with the Jets last season. He may be in better condition with the injury further behind him, but he'll probably have to compete for a roster spot wherever he ends up signing. Detroit would offer some potential for a significant role, as the Lions could use an early-down/short-yardage back to replace Joique Bell.By Rotowire.com
Karlos Dansby LB - Dansby is signing with the Bengals, NFL....
Dansby is signing with the Bengals, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impacts: Released by the division-rival Browns a couple weeks ago, the 34-year-old Dansby may have to compete for snaps in Cincinnati, despite recording 108 tackles and three interceptions last season. At the very least, he'll help the Bengals get by while Vontaze Burfict (suspension) sits out the first three weeks of the season.By Rotowire.com
Kevin White WR - CHI General manager Ryan Pace stated that Wh...
General manager Ryan Pace stated that White (shin) is fully healthy after missing the entire 2015 season, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Impacts: In addition to missing his entire rookie campaign, White was barely able to practice, making the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft the equivalent of a rookie in 2016. He'll clearly benefit from Alshon Jeffery drawing the focus from opposing defenses, but White is hardly a finished product, as he only had one big season in college. In addition, he underwhelmed as a receiver before his senior year. However, he posted a blazing 4.35 40 at the combine while impressing in both the vertical leap and broad jump drills. He'll be a player to watch closely in training camp since his skill set suggests he has high-end upside.By Rotowire.com
Jared Cook TE - Cook is on the verge of signing with the...
Cook is on the verge of signing with the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Impacts: The two sides had discussions earlier this month and did not agree to a deal, but it appears they kept in touch, and have now agreed to contract terms. Expect full details to be announced shortly.By Rotowire.com
Nate Washington WR - NE The Patriots have signed Washington.
The Patriots have signed Washington.
Impacts: Washington figures to transition well to the Patriots' offense, having played this past season with the Texans, who are coached by former New England offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound wideout, who turns 33 in August, can still present a downfield option at this stage of his career, and with the Patriots looking for an added outside presence at the position, Washington could be a solid complement to the likes of Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and fellow newcomer Chris Hogan. Washington is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 47 catches for 658 yards and four TDs with the Texans over 14 games.By Rotowire.com
Robert Griffin QB - CLE Griffin agreed to a two-year, $15 millio...
Griffin agreed to a two-year, $15 million contract with the Browns on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.
Impacts: $6.75 million of the contract is guaranteed and another $7 million is available through incentives. The significant commitment should ensure that Griffin gets to compete for the starting job, even if his new team ends up selecting a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft. Although the Browns now seem far less likely to do so, various reports have suggested that it's still on the table. The 26-year-old Griffin still has first-rate physical tools, but he hasn't played well since his rookie season and didn't take a single snap in 2015.By Rotowire.com
