Brandon Carr DB DAL (7) 1 hour ago
Carr finished the regular season with 61 tackles and nine passes defended in 16 games, including his first INT since 2013.
The 30-year-old has never missed a game in his NFL career, so while he doesn't make many impact plays, his reliability does have value. Carr is a free agent this offseason, but could return to the Cowboys if they aren't able to find an upgrade on the open market.
Darren McFadden RB DAL (7) 2 hours ago
McFadden played in only three games in 2016 due to an elbow injury, finishing with 24 carries for 87 yards and catching three passes on five targets for 17 yards.
He topped 1000 yards rushing in 2015 for just the second time in his career, but his injury combined with the addition of Ezekiel Elliott prevented McFadden from making any kind of meaningful impact last year. He's a free agent this offseason, but it's not out of the question for the Cowboys to bring him back as veteran depth behind Elliott if the market for his services is soft.
Terrance Williams WR DAL (7) 2 hours ago
Williams finished the 2016 regular season with 44 catches on 61 targets for 594 yards and four touchdowns.
The targets and yards were career lows for Williams, as was his 13.5 yards per catch. He'll head into free agency without much buzz as a result, which could keep his price tag low enough that the Cowboys consider bringing him back, but if another club is willing to pay him more like the wide receiver that racked up 13 TDs in his first two years in the league, and who topped 16.0 YPC in each of his first three campaigns, Dallas will likely look elsewhere for WR depth behind Dez Bryant.
QTyrod Taylor QB BUF (10) 3 hours ago
Taylor (groin) has recovered from January surgery and has been medically cleared for offseason activities, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Taylor was never expected to be in much danger of being limited during the offseason, but the fact that he's back to full strength is nonetheless significant. He's now eligible for the $27.5 million bonus due March 11, which wouldn't have kicked in had he not been cleared by that date. It still remains unclear if the Bills are willing to pay out that bonus, and Taylor's prior refusal to restructure his contract could ultimately prompt Buffalo to release him by March 11. If that's the case, Taylor likely wouldn't have much trouble finding a starting gig elsewhere, as the 2017 draft class isn't ripe with high-end signal callers and several teams look to be in need of an established option at quarterback.
QJay Cutler QB CHI (9) 17 hours ago
The Bears have started to explore potential trades for Cutler, Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports.
Cutler suffered a sprained thumb in Week 2, forcing five consecutive absences. Only Brian Hoyer's broken left forearm in Week 7 allowed Cutler another chance to operate under center, but he made three more appearances before requiring season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder. If he's indeed getting shopped, he mustered four touchdowns versus five interceptions, while completing 59 percent of his passes in his age-33 campaign. Because he has no guaranteed money remaining on his contract, the Bears may have difficulty unloading Cutler in a less-than-inspiring locale, as he could opt to "sit out or retire," per Darlington. No matter how the situation unfolds, Cutler's time in Chicago has almost certainly come to a close.
QK'Waun Williams DB CHI (9) 18 hours ago
Williams is expected to sign a one-year deal with the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The 25-year-old played his first two seasons out of Pittsburgh with the Browns before spending 2016 without a team. The 49ers have reportedly had their eye on Williams, and have opted to give him a shot with a club. He drew 10 starts during his 26 games with the Browns, while recording recording 77 tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defended, and three forced fumbles in the process. He figures to compete for a backup role at free safety providing depth behind Eric Reid.
Brandin Cooks WR NO (5) 19 hours ago
Head coach Sean Payton "absolutely" expects Cooks to be a member of the Saints in the 2017 season, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.
After he emerged from Week 12 without a target for the first time in his career, Cooks expressed frustration, spurring rumblings within the NFL that he may shopped in the offseason. Having said that, he has one year remaining on his rookie deal, which can become two seasons if the Saints exercise the 2018 option available to former first-round picks. With a March 3 deadline looming, such a decision would seemingly be a no-brainer for a wideout coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns and 17 touchdowns during that span.
Robby Anderson WR NYJ (11) 20 hours ago
Anderson recorded 42 receptions for 587 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games with the Jets this season.
Anderson showed promise throughout his rookie season, pairing a solid route-running ability with speed. He emerged as a favorite target of fellow rookie Bryce Petty, as the two formed a connection throughout the offseason last year. Just like last offseason, Anderson will continue to work out with former Pro Bowl wideout Chad Johnson, according to Ethan Greenburg of the team's official site. "I'm going to put a lot of work in this offseason. There are a couple things I really want to focus on to get better", Anderson noted. He'll look to take the jump next season in the hopes of securing a top wideout spot on the depth chart.
Darrelle Revis DB NYJ (11) 22 hours ago
According to Revis' attorney Robert Del Greco, the preliminary hearing regarding a recent alleged incident in Pittsburgh has been rescheduled from this Thursday to March 15, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The public will now have to wait a few more weeks for any word on the cornerback's four felony charges (two counts of aggravated assault, one count of robbery, and one count of conspiracy: aggravated assault). The NFL will wait to address the situation until all legal matters are taken care of, which puts the veteran's status into question for the upcoming season that officially begins on March 9. Revis is slated to make $15.3 million in 2017 ($6 million guaranteed), which includes a $2 million roster bonus due on March 11, but his legal proceedings could muddy this process.
Su'a Cravens DB WAS (9) 23 hours ago
Cravens will spend his offseason adjusting to his new role at safety for the Redskins, JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports.
In his rookie season, Cravens totaled 34 tackles, five pass deflections, one sack, and one interception in 11 games at linebacker. The 21-year-old (6'1, 222-pounds) will now make the move to safety in his second season, a role he gained experience in during his time at USC. With veterans Duke Ihenacho and Donte Whitner heading into free agency and DeAngelo Hall (knee) still recovering from an ACL tear, it seems more likely than not that Cravens will head into the season as a starting safety. What the former linebacker lacks in speed, he makes up for in intelligence and tackling ability. Look for more updates on his transition to come throughout the offseason.
