Reuben Foster LB SF (11) 2 hours ago
49ers general manager John Lynch said Monday that Foster won't remain with the team "if these charges are proven true", ESPN.com reports.
Lynch is referring to Foster's felony domestic violence charge from a February arrest. The linebacker is being kept away from the 49ers while the legal process plays out, and he eventually could be placed on the commissioner's exempt list. Foster has a plea hearing scheduled for April 30.
Morgan Burnett S PIT (7) 2 hours ago
Head coach Mike Tomlin said Burnett will open OTAs at free safety, Dave Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
When Burnett signed with Pittsburgh in March, most assumed he would slot in as the starting strong safety and push Sean Davis over to free safety. However, it seems like the Steelers -- at least momentarily -- may have something else in mind. While it seems likely that the team will experiment with a number of secondary arrangements as the offseason continues to unfold, IDP owners should take note of Burnett's possible position change, as free safeties naturally play further from the line of scrimmage than strong safeties and consequently tend to post inferior tackle numbers.
Shaquil Barrett LB DEN (10) 3 hours ago
Barrett officially signed his restricted free-agent tender Monday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
Barrett is now under contract for one more season at a $2.9 million price tag. Though he remains behind Von Miller and Shane Ray on the depth chart, Barrett is a valuable piece of the Broncos' pass-rush who has collected 123 tackles with 11 sacks over the past three seasons -- while never missing a single game. However, Barrett is unlikely to be worthy of IDP consideration until he earns a starter's share of snaps.
QDarius Powe WR NYG (9) 3 hours ago
The Giants waived Powe (foot) on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Powe, who went undrafted out of Cal in 2017, spent the majority of his rookie season on the Giants' practice squad before getting called up in December. Unfortunately, Powe fractured his foot on his first career reception in Week 15 against the Cowboys and ended the year on injured reserve. While it isn't clear where he stands in his recovery, Powe will become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Jerrol Garcia-Williams LB DEN (10) 3 hours ago
Garcia-Williams signed his exclusive-rights tender Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.
Garcia-Williams is mostly a special-teams player who notched two tackles as a rookie in 2017. The Hawaii product will likely serve in a similar capacity in 2018.
Derrick Coleman RB FA 4 hours ago
Coleman participated in a workout with the Jets on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Coleman played in all 18 games for Atlanta in 2017 after spending his first four pro seasons within the Seahawks organization. The free agent fullback averaged just over 14 offensive snaps per game last year, serving almost exclusively as a blocker. The 27-year-old Coleman accumulated eight yards on two carries in his stint with the Falcons, adding two receptions for 20 yards.
Brandon Brooks PHI (9) 5 hours ago
Brooks restructured his contract with the Eagles on Monday, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Brooks has quickly established himself as one of the top interior linemen across the league for his on-field production. However, it now appears he's helping the Eagles outside of the trenches as well. By restructuring his current deal, Brooks has allowed the Eagles to convert some of $8.75 million base salary into bonuses which will subsequently free up some cap space for Philadelphia.
QKam Chancellor S SEA (7) 5 hours ago
General manager John Schneider said Monday that Chancellor has a scan scheduled for late June or early July to determine his playing future, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Chancellor's 2017 campaign ended abruptly Week 10, when he sustained an unspecified neck injury and landed on injured reserve. In a press conference after the season, coach Pete Carroll revealed the Chancellor was in danger of not playing again. However, Chancellor threw a wrench into that line of thinking in February, stating he'll suit up again if he gains medical clearance. The crossroads for his career will presumably arrive early in the summer, but the Seahawks likely are inclined to address the situation with a draft pick later this week.
Benson Mayowa DE ARI (9) 5 hours ago
Mayowa signed with the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Recently dumped by Dallas, Mayowa will look to make the most of his opportunity with Arizona this summer. As of now, Mayowa figures to be able to carve out a depth linebacking role should he take advantage of the opportunity. The 26-year-old provides a nice balance of experience and potential as he heads to the desert.
QLandon Collins S NYG (9) 5 hours ago
Collins underwent surgery on his right forearm Monday, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.
The surgery comes just a month after Collins suggested he was 100 percent healthy. While that doesn't appear to be the case, the expectation is that the Giants' catalyst will only be sidelined 6-8 weeks meaning he should be fully ready to go for the season opener. The two-time pro bowler has a stranglehold over both Michael Thomas and Ryan Murphy at the strong safety spot.
