Rick Wagner is staying in the NFC North.
Wagner's signing is protection against a likely divorce between Green Bay and 30-year-old Bryan Bulaga, who is headed to free agency this week.
With younger left tackle David Bakhtiari in line for a new deal a year from now, the Packers couldn't afford to invest heavily in two tackles near 30 years old in consecutive years. With the 30-year-old Wagner available before the start of free agency, the Packers are making the wise move of signing a starter to what is likely a more affordable deal before the market officially opens.
Elsewhere in the NFL on Monday:
»*Kendall Fuller* is returning to the Washington Redskins. The former Chiefs (and Redskins) cornerback is signing a four-year deal worth $40 million, Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported on Monday night. Fuller was a part of the trade that brough Alex Smith to D.C. ahead of the 2018 season.
D.C. is also re-signing linebacker Jon Bostic to a two-year deal worth $6.6 million, Rapoport reported.
Later on Monday, the Texans agreed to terms with receiver Randall Cobb on a three-year, $27 million deal with $18.75 million guaranteed, NFL Network's James Jones reported. Houston also re-signed backup QB AJ McCarron to a one-year, $4 million deal, Pelissero added.
New York made a qualifying offer (second-round tender) to kicker Aldrick Rosas.
Big Blue agreed to terms with linebacker Blake Martinez late Monday night on a three-year, $30 million deal, Rapoport and Garafolo reported.
»The Indianapolis Colts have had discussions with free-agent quarterback Philip Rivers, Rapoport reported. While nothing is done, he's the clear target for Indy, Rapoport added.
»*Todd Gurley* is another big-name player whose name is coming up in trade talks, per NFL Network's Michael Silver. The Rams, according to one GM who has discussed a potential deal with the team, are seeking a pick between the second and fourth rounds for the star RB, Silver added. A swap could come down to a new team's willingness to take on Gurley's contract. He's due for a $7.55 million bonus if still on the roster on March 20.
Silver also reported the Rams are working to re-sign four of their impending free agents: offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, center Austin Blythe, and defensive linemen Dante Fowler.
»The Baltimore Ravens and defensive lineman Michael Brockers have agreed to terms on a three-year, $30 million deal, Rapoport and Garafolo reported. Brockers will gets $21 million guaranteed, Garafolo added. This is Baltimore's second addition to the defensive line this week; the Ravens traded for veteran DL Calais Campbell on Sunday.
The Niners are also bringing back safety Jimmie Ward, according to Garafolo. The deal is for three years and $28.5 million, according to Rapoport.
»What will it take to land Jadeveon Clowney? Perhaps more than $21 million per season, Pelissero reported. The free-agent edge rusher is seeking a new contract higher than Buckner's new extension and what DeMarcus Lawrence received last year from the Cowboys. Pelissero added that the Seahawks are interested in bringing Clowney back, although they might not meet his asking price, while the Jets have also been in communication with the star defensive end.
»The Chicago Bears are not expected to sign quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Garafolo reported. There are other QB options in play there, Garafolo added.
»The Seattle Seahawks are giving tight end Jacob Hollister the second-round tender, Garafolo reported.
Seattle is also re-signing defensive tackle Jarran Reed to a two-year, $23 million contract, a source told Pelissero.
»The Baltimore Ravens gave restricted free agent Matt Skura the low tender, Garafolo reported. The low tender means the Ravens will not receive any compensation if Skura signs an offer sheet with another team and the Ravens don't match. Skura is returning from a significant knee injury but has started 39 games for Baltimore over the last three years.
»The Indianapolis Colts are releasing defensive tackle Margus Hunt, Rapoport reported. Hunt, a 2013 second-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals, has spent the last three seasons with the Colts, appearing in 47 of a possible 48 regular-season games and recording 76 tackles, six sacks and one forced fumble over that span. At 32 years old, Hunt's future is uncertain, though he's proven to be dependable when it comes to availability.
Miami also agreed to terms with former Bengals safety Clayton Fejedelem to a three-year, $8.55 million deal with $3 million guaranteed, per Pelissero.
Detroit is also signing former Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins to a three-year, $30 million deal that includes $18 million fully guaranteed, Rapoport reported.
Cleveland also agreed to terms with right tackle Jack Conklin on a three-year deal for $42 million with $30 million fully guaranteed, Rapoport reported. The former Titan will earn $20 million in the first year.
According to Silver, many NFL execs and coaches believe at least one of the Browns' star receivers -- Odell Beckham or Jarvis Landry -- could be there for the taking in a trade.
