QJordan Poyer DB BUF (10) 4 days ago
Poyer is fully healthy following a kidney injury that forced him out of the final 10 games last season, BuffaloBills.com reports.
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) 4 days ago
Garvin signed with the Seahawks on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
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) 4 days ago
Goodman signed with the Jaguars on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
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) 4 days ago
Benjamin will have his fifth-year option picked up by the Panthers, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
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) 4 days ago
Jones (groin) was released by the Colts on Friday.
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) 4 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.
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) 4 days ago
Quick has agreed to terms on a contract with the Redskins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
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) 4 days ago
Robison signed a one-year extension that takes his contract through 2018, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
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.
Jonathan Stewart RB CAR (7) 4 days ago
The Panthers signed Stewart to a one-year extension through 2018, the team's official website reports.
Previously entering the final season of a five-year, $36.5 million contract he signed in 2012, the 30-year-old running back was scheduled for a 2017 cap hit of $8.25 million. The extension likely redistributes some of that charge to 2018, ending any speculation about the possibility Stewart could be released. He had 218 carries for 824 yards (3.8 YPC) and nine touchdowns in 13 games last season, missing at least three contests for a fifth consecutive year. The Panthers could still select a running back early in the upcoming draft.
Mark Sanchez QB CHI (9) 5 days ago
Sanchez signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Thursday, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.
After visiting with team officials Wednesday, Sanchez and the Bears finalized a one-year deal with the veteran late Thursday. The Bears gave Mike Glennon a multi-year deal earlier in the offseason, so Sanchez's arrival in Chicago is primarily to add depth behind the former Buccaneer. Sanchez served as Dak Prescott's backup in Dallas last season and appeared in two games, completing 10-of-18 passes for 93 yards and two interceptions.
