QScott Crichton
DL MIN (6)
6 days ago

Crichton (undisclosed) was released by the Vikings on Friday, the Star Tribune's Matt Vensel reports.

EDGE Analysis

A 2014 third-round selection, Crichton has yet to record a sack in 21 regular-season appearances. He was waived with an injury designation at the end of last preseason, and then placed on injured reserve upon clearing waivers. The 25-year-old will merely be hoping for another chance to compete for a roster spot.

SUSJosh Gordon
WR CLE (13)
6 days ago

Gordon (suspension) is expected to hear about the status of his reinstatement application by late April or early May, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon applied for reinstatement in early March, eyeing a return to regular-season action for the first time since December 2014. He was conditionally reinstated last summer from an indefinite ban, needing to serve another four-game suspension before playing in a game. He ultimately entered an in-patient rehab facility instead of returning after four weeks -- thereby failing to meet the terms for reinstatement. The league may outline a similar condition this time around, but even if it doesn't, the Browns are expected to part ways with Gordon. Set to turn 26 in April, the talented wideout shouldn't have a hard time finding another team that's willing to give him a shot.

QJordan Poyer
DB BUF (10)
6 days ago

Poyer is fully healthy following a kidney injury that forced him out of the final 10 games last season, BuffaloBills.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Bills signed Poyer -- who spent the last three seasons in Cleveland -- to rebuild a secondary that lost some key members this offseason. The way things look today, he'd be a starting safety for new head coach Sean McDermott and coordinator Leslie Frazier, along with fellow newcomer Micah Hyde.

Terence Garvin
LB SEA (5)
6 days ago

Garvin signed with the Seahawks on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garvin is the second linebacker the Seahawks have signed in as many days after the club agreed to terms with Michael Wilhoite on Thursday. The 26-year-old Garvin spent last season with the Redskins and was particularly strong on special teams, where he racked up 285 total snaps. Look for Garvin to have a similar role with the Seahawks this season given that Seattle's starting front seven appears to be set for the most part.

Malliciah Goodman
DL JAC (5)
6 days ago

Goodman signed with the Jaguars on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old defensive end bounced around between the Falcons and the Seahawks last season and hasn't appeared in more than four games in a single season since the 2014 campaign. He adds some depth to the Jaguars' front, but the club has been so proactive in adding to its edge depth in recent years that it's difficult to imagine Goodman carving out a significant role with them this season.

Kelvin Benjamin
WR CAR (7)
6 days ago

Benjamin will have his fifth-year option picked up by the Panthers, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as little surprise as Benjamin, when healthy, has been the team's best receiver since landing in Carolina in 2014. He hauled in 63 of 118 targets for 941 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016 and proved to be a reliable threat deep down the field with 10 receptions of 20-or-more yards. According to Person, Benjamin's option figures to be in the $8 million range in 2018.

QArthur Jones
DL IND (10)
6 days ago

Jones (groin) was released by the Colts on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was due to count over $7 million against the cap this season, which was unpalatable for someone that played in just 17 games over the past three seasons. The 30-year-old will now look to land elsewhere and get healthy ahead of the 2017 campaign.

QJulio Jones
WR ATL (11)
6 days ago

Jones (toe) seemed to be moving around pretty well during a Wednesday appearance at the Georgia State Capitol, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Recovering from March 6 surgery to address a bunion, Jones was wearing a boot but didn't need crutches to walk. He said his foot feels good, and while he'll still miss the Falcons' offseason program, the 28-year-old wideout remain on track for training camp. With no crucial offseason additions or losses, the 2017 Atlanta offense should look very similar to the 2016 iteration.

Brian Quick
WR WAS (9)
6 days ago

Quick has agreed to terms on a contract with the Redskins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Selected 33rd overall in the 2012 draft, Quick finally started living up to the Rams' expectations early in the 2014 campaign, only to suffer a severe shoulder injury after seven games. He struggled to bounce back from the injury and caught just 10 passes the following year, but he did re-emerge as a modest contributor last season, hauling in 41 of 79 targets for 564 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. While Jamison Crowder and fellow free-agent signing Terrelle Pryor are locked in as key pieces in the Washington offense, Quick could get a chance to push 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson (Achilles) for a spot in three-wide sets. The Redskins hope Doctson will bounce back from a lost rookie season and earn a leading role, but the 27-year-old Quick provides some form of insurance if that doesn't happen. The most likely scenario has Quick serving as the No. 4 wideout, providing an occasional big-play threat on limited snaps.

Brian Robison
DL MIN (6)
6 days ago

Robison signed a one-year extension that takes his contract through 2018, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

EDGE Analysis

Robison agreed to reduce his 2017 base salary from a non-guaranteed $5.3 million to a fully-guaranteed $3.9 million, with the number then dropping to $3.2 million (including $1.25 million guaranteed) for 2018. He'll turn 34 in April and has never recorded double-digit sacks in a season, but his run defense and consistency have long made him an asset to the Vikings. Robison has played 15 or 16 games in each of his 10 NFL seasons, recording 4.5 or more sacks each of the past six years while starting every contest he's played.
