News

Ezekiel Elliot was suspended 6 games for domestic violence incidents. He has appealed.

Seattle signed center Justin Britt to a three year 27 million dollar extension. They finally kept a good offensive linemen.

The Seahawks also added CB Tramain Brock. Brock had a good grade in 2016 but was cut by the 49ers due to a domestic abuse charge. Brock was cleared and added to Seattle. This is a very under the radar signing and bolsters an already good secondary in Seattle.

Lions put Kerry Hyder (Achilles) and Brandon Copeland (torn pec) on IR. Cornelius Washington and Armonty Bryant returned to practice but Ziggy Ansah remains on PUP.

Thomas Davis inked a one year 6.75 million extension which keeps him on the Panthers next season.

The Eagles cut Ryan Matthews to clear 4 million in cap room.

The Ravens signed Jeremy Zuttah and Austin Howard to help for an injury riddled offensive line. Alex Lewis and rookie Nico Sirgagusa both are on IR for the Ravens at left guard. Zuttah replaces the retired John Urschel after the 49ers cut Zuttah. Howard got a 3 year 15 million dollar deal to be the Ravens right tackle (which was a huge weakness). Howard was cut by the Raiders for cap space.

Delvin Breaux had a leg fracture which deals another blow to the Saints defense. The Saints doctor misdiagnosed him and got fired.

The Bears claimed 2nd round kicker Roberto Aguayo off waivers to compete with Connor Barth again.

Jordan Matthews has a chipped sternum after the Eagles traded him to the Bills.

Former Lion, Jason Jones signed with the Saints to play left end and DT.

Brandon Albert was cut by Jacksonville and cleared 8.9 million in space. Albert is a good left tackle on the market now, though he flirted with retirement.

Jets top receiver Quincy Enuwa is on IR. The Jets are in rough shape with receivers. Ryan Kelly had foot surgery for the Colts but may be back in the second half of the season at center.

The Cowboys extender their punter Chris Jones on a 4 year 8.7 million dollar deal.

Packers re-signed long snapper Brett Goode.
