2017 NFL Draft



1. Myles Garrett
Browns, DE, Texas A&M
Height: 6-foot-4 | Weight: 272 lbs.

Garrett is the best player in this draft and it really isn’t even close. He’s long, strong, fast, and productive, with a Greek god physique. His ability to bend the edge is rare, while his power game, hand fighting, and leg drive appears dominating and effortless at the same time. In terms of prototype comparisons for Garrett, I see a Demarcus Ware level talent in the body of Jadeveon Clowney. Clearly the Browns took the player that they had to, while they can use any number of their stockpiled draft picks in order to move back into the top-10 for a quarterback.

2. Mitchell Trubisky
Bears, QB, North Carolina
Height: 6-foot-2 | Weight: 222 lbs.

** Bears acquire 2nd overall pick; 49ers acquire 3rd, 67th, 111th overall, and future 3rd (2018) **

Physically, Trubisky has it all – a solid build, strong and accurate arm, and mobility. However, his mere one season as a starting college quarterback is what is splitting draft experts and war rooms in half. Ultimately, talent like his should win out when projecting his NFL career, but time and time again we have seen lack of experience cripple young quarterbacks when transitioning to the pro game. The Bears really gave up a lot to move just one spot... Time will only tell here with Trubisky.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 8:31 PM
3. Solomon Thomas
49ers, DE, Stanford
Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 273 lbs.

** Bears acquire 2nd overall pick; 49ers acquire 3rd, 67th, 111th overall, and future 3rd (2018) **

As a prospect, the two main things that Thomas offers is that he’s A) a safe player, in that he has a high floor, and B) he is scheme versatile. Beyond that though, people need to understand that Thomas is also a disruptive force along the defensive line and possesses a rare speed and power combination. He will be a mainstay in this league for years to come, while consistently piling up around 8-10 sacks a season.

4. Leonard Fournette
Jaguars, RB, LSU
Height: 6-foot | Weight: 240 lbs.

Close your eyes and imagine a back with the build of Jamaal Lewis, the power of Brandon Jacobs, and the breakaway speed of Clinton Portis – an unfathomable combination, I know – but that is in fact the mold of Leonard Fournette. Now despite the fact that he too is being taken fourth overall, I won’t say that Fournette is the prospect that Ezekiel Elliott was last year. He lacks the refinement and nuance needed for the position, plus he isn’t the blocker or receiver that Zeke is, but there is no doubt that Fournette’s physical traits have never been seen at this position before. The success of Elliott in the top-five last season certainly has boosted the value of Fournette in this draft, but it’s not to say that it is unwarranted. This guy can make an immediate impact – especially as a fantasy contributor – while playing in this talented Jaguars offense

Updated at: Thu April 27th 8:37 PM
5. Corey Davis
Titans, WR, Western Michigan
Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 209 lbs.

Fourth in career receptions, second in career touchdown receptions, and the NCAA career leader in receiving yards, Davis is a very talented wideout with a size, speed, and route running combination that makes him an immedeate number one option in this suddenly scary Titans offense. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:20 PM
6. Jamal Adams
Jets, SS, LSU
Height: 6-foot | Weight: 214 lbs.

Adams is a noted field general, with the locker room leadership skills that will make Ray Lewis blush. As for his play, he’s drawn comparisons to Eric Berry and Darren Woodson – good company for sure. He will enter the league as a do-it-all safety, with the ability to play both deep and strong safety, however his best work will come near the line of scrimmage as a blitzer and read and react playmaker. Jets fans should sleep well tonight knowing that they got the second best player in the draft at sixth overall... Reminicent of the Leonard Williams selection a few years ago. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 8:53 PM
7. Mike Williams
, WR, Clemson
Height: 6-foot-4 | Weight: 218 lbs.

Manning to Harrison, Brady to Moss, Aikman to Irvin, Montana to Rice, etc. Behind every good quarterback is a stud receiver to throw the ball to. For Deshaun Watson, he had Mike Williams during his years at Clemson. While not the fastest, Williams resembles Plaxico Burress in build and play style, which is something that any offensive coordinator would be more than happy to get in the first round. Philip Rivers should see his career extended by a few years now that he will be able to throw it up to such a huge target. An immediate fantasy impact performer for sure. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:01 PM
8. Christian McCaffrey
Panthers, RB, Stanford
Height: 5-foot-11 | Weight: 202 lbs.

I’ve been saying it for two years now – Christian McCaffrey is the best back in this class. He’s got the tape and production in spades, his 2015 season (3,864 all-purpose yards, 15 TD’s) was the best by a running back in the history of college football (2016 was no slouch either: 2,327 all-purpose yards, 16 TD’s), and to top it all off he was the best pound-for-pound performer at the combine.

While his popularized dual-threat ability is what most scouts gush over, it is his far underrated between the tackles skillset that particularly catches my eye. Similarly to Le’Veon Bell, McCaffrey can stop and start on a dime, set up blocks, and change directions in a way not seen since Barry Sanders. I have to go to another sport to find a comparison for his change of speed ability, as it is most reminiscent of a crafty left-handed pitcher. Once he is through the hole and has shaken every would-be defender out of their cleats, it’s off to the races, as McCaffrey possesses rare breakaway speed to take any touch to the house. 

What a pickup by Carolina, he will take this offense to the next level. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:07 PM
9. John Ross
Bengals, WR, Washington
Height: 5-foot-11 | Weight: 188 lbs.

Wow, much earlier than I expected, but I can't argue with the fit...

Ross – already the faster player in NFL history – is more than just a speed demon. Beyond his record-breaking combine performance Ross was arguably the most productive receiver in college football last season, with his 81 receptions, 1,150 yards, and 17 touchdowns. He runs routes adequately, has great hands, tracks the ball well in the air and nine times out of ten he comes down with it despite his slight frame. An added bonus to this pick is his electric kick return ability, which at the very least will be where he makes an immediate impact. 

Ross across from A.J. Green is a scary thought.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:16 PM
10. Patrick Mahomes
Chiefs, QB, Texas Tech
Height: 6-foot-2 | Weight: 225 lbs.

** Chiefs receive 10th overall; Bills receive 27th, 91st, future 1st (2018) **

Personally, I have a fifth round grade on Mahomes, and that is being nice considering I have no hope that he will succeed as an NFL quarterback, but the fact of the matter is that a lot of scouts and teams are intrigued by his physical talent. He’s a lump of clay and the right OC is going to have to coach a lot of bad habits out of him and a lot of good habits into him. A high risk pick for sure, but not one without a high reward as well. Luckily in this situation he will be forced for a while with a clipboard in his hands.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:21 PM
11. Marshon Lattimore
Saints, CB, Ohio State
Height: 6-foot | Weight: 193 lbs.

The best cornerback in this class, Lattimore is long, agile, and fast, with rare instincts for the position. His injury history is a bit worrisome, as is his mere one season as a starter, however this kind of talent is too hard to pass up on. As I had him mocked, the Saints were Lattimore's ultimate floor at 11th overall, and they couldn't be happier filling their biggest need.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:31 PM
12. Deshaun Watson
Texans, QB , Clemson
Height: 6-foot-2 | Weight: 221 lbs.

** Texans receive 12th overall; Browns receive 25th overall and future 1st rounder (2018) **

In stark contrast to Mitchell Trubisky, Watson is one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in college football history. In back-to-back seasons, he dissected Alabama’s all-time great defense on his way to an eventual National Championship victory in his final season at Clemson. As a pro, Watson has some work to do in terms of decision making, but his excellent leadership skills, plus mobility, and ice cold temperament in clutch situations will make him a hard to fail quarterback in the NFL. In my opinion, he's Houston's day-one starter, so it is safe to say that I love the value that Houston got here.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:38 PM
13. Haason Reddick
Cardinals, LB, Temple
Height: 6-foot-1 | Weight: 237 lbs.

A career edge rusher, Reddick worked out at the Senior Bowl as an off ball linebacker and flourished. Due to limited size, it is at that position where his NFL career will likely take him. That is what the Cardinals had in mind when they took him here, however there is definitely a belief that his versatile pass rushing skillset will help out in sub-packages and on passing downs. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:47 PM
14. Derek Barnett
Eagles, DE, Tennessee
Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 259 lbs.

Barnett is the best edge rusher not named Myles Garrett in this draft. He’d likely have gone higher if it weren’t for a poor combine performance, but that is just who he is – he’s not a tester. On the field though, Barnett is a quarterback magnet. He broke Reggie White’s career sack record at Tennessee, registering double-digit sacks in an astounding three consecutive seasons. He’ll make a living in this league mostly as a right defensive end, but he has the strength to play on the left side as well. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 9:53 PM
15. Malik Hooker
Colts, FS, Ohio State
Height: 6-foot-1 | Weight: 206 lbs.

It's arguable that Hooker is the biggest faller in this draft, maybe O.J. Howard, but the fact of the matter is that Indy will be getting an immediate impact player here.

Hooker is the exact type of toolsy prospect that coaches love to get in their grasps. He’s well built for the position, athletic, and has some of the best range as a single-high safety seen since Earl Thomas. Outside of those positives, Hooker does offer the question marks of his spotty injury history and the fact that he only has one year of production. As I have said before though, pure talent usually wins out in this type of argument. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:03 PM
16. Marlon Humphrey
Ravens, CB, Alabama
Height: 6-foot | Weight: 197 lbs.

Humphrey fits the physical profile of today’s NFL corner and he has the 4.4 speed to boot, but there is some worry about his propensity to get beat deep. All things considered though, he’s a playmaker and was the best guy in a loaded Alabama secondary for the last two years. He will work best in man coverage early on, while he is also one of the few corners in this draft that is willing to tackle. Ultmiately, the Ravens are getting a guy who fits exactly what they are looking for in their corners. His main comparison throughout the draft process has not so ironically been Ravens corner Jimmy Smith.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:09 PM
17. Jonathan Allen
Redskins, DE, Alabama
Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 286 lbs.

For the last two years, Allen has been the best player on the best defense in the country and has the production to match the hype. Playing a non-premium position in terms of getting after the quarterback, Allen still managed to register double-digit sacks in back-to-back seasons. Like Solomon Thomas, Allen too possesses a speed and power combination that is not common in the NFL, which will make him a versatile weapon for any defensive coordinator. Truth be told, on talent alone, Allen is probably the second best player in the draft, but his shoulder concerns bumped him down a bunch of spots here. In the end, the Redskins are walking away with the current steal of the draft, and all NFC East opponents will begin losing sleep from tonight on. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:18 PM
18. Adoree Jackson
Titans, CB, USC
Height: 5-foot-10 | Weight: 186 lbs.

As an NFL corner, a lot of projecting is going on Jackson for him to be considered a first round player, however what likely gave him the stock bump are his elite skills with the ball in his hands. While trying to learn the nuances of the cornerback position at the NFL level early on in his career, Jackson is going to give the Titans an immediate impact kick returner and gadget offensive weapon. Considering that, I find it hard to pick him in the first round, but to each their own I guess...

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:22 PM
19. O.J. Howard
Buccaneers, TE, Alabama
Height: 6-foot-6 | Weight: 251 lbs.

I keep having to update myself, but this is the new best value in the draft. Howard is a straight up baller and joins a suddenly elite Tampa Bay offense. 

As a player, Howard combines rare size and speed at the tight end position, while his blocking and receiving skills blend perfectly to create an ideal prototype in today’s NFL. He’s considered one of the safest players in the draft, while his potential ceiling is sky high as well. Some may be scared off by his inconsistent collegiate production, however just one look into either of his National Championship performances, and they should easily be sold. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:29 PM
20. Garrett Bolles
Broncos, OT, Utah
Height: 6-foot-5 | 297 lbs.

While Bolles is blessed with raw ability and excellent physical traits, he’s a late bloomer at the position. He only has played one year of FBS football and he’s also already 25-years old. Some red flags throughout his scouting notes there for sure, but I also would be lying if I said that I haven’t been in awe of his natural athleticism on tape. If the Broncos just work with him on cleaning up his punch technique and get him a little more of a power base in his kick-slide, there is no reason that Bolles can’t become a pro bowler some day. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:32 PM
21. Jarrad Davis
Lions, LB, Florida
Height: 6-foot-1 | Weight: 238 lbs.

You like tough-nosed football, then look no further than Davis, as he only has one gear… Spoiler alert, it’s not neutral. This constant fast-paced tempo led to ample carnage in offensive backfields, but also led to some serious wear and tear on his body throughout his years at Florida. Ultimately though, Davis is worthy of this first round selection based on talent and scheme versatility alone, while the hope is that he remains healthier throughout his future NFL career. Great pick at a position of need here for Detroit.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:42 PM
22. Charles Harris
Dolphins, DE, Missouri
Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 253 lbs.

In Harris, the Dolphins will be getting a twitched up edge bender, who is going to join a long line of Missouri NFL pass rushers. While he isn’t the best edge player in this class, but there is little feeling that Harris will bust, and there is something to be said for that. With Harris you know what you are going to get – an athletic right end, who will terrorize the blind side of quarterbacks to the tune of 8-10 sacks per year. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:45 PM
23. Evan Engram
Giants, TE, Ole Miss
Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 234 lbs.

Don't get it twisted, Engram is a glorified slot receiver. Having said that, he will be a mismatch against every linebacker or safety he takes on. Expect him to move around as an H-Back in this Giants explosive offense, while serving in a Marques Colston capacity while lined up in the slot. Some may consider it a reach in the first round, but I think that Engram's intimidating presence really will open things up for OBJ and Sterling Shepard. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 10:54 PM
24. Gareon Conley
Raiders, CB, Ohio State
Height: 6-foot| Weight: 195 lbs.


The belief is that Conley's recent rape allegation would knock him into the third round, but apparently the Raiders did their homework and feel comfortable enough with Conley's off the field issues to give him a first round contract. 

On the field, many argued that Conley was better than teammate Marcus Lattimore, and Lattimore was the first corner off the board, so that's saying something. He's sticky in man coverage, rock solid in zone, and possesses legitimate 4.4 speed. More than enough for me as a first round corner, provided he checks out off the field. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:02 PM
25. Jabrill Peppers
Browns, SS, Michigan
Height: 5-foot- 11 | Weight: 213 lbs.

** Texans receive 12th overall; Browns receive 25th overall and future 1st rounder (2018) **

Peppers is an excellent talent with the ball in his, no doubt, but I struggle to find a position for him to play on defense. If you ask some scouts, they consider him a running back or slot receiver only. A reach in the first round in my opinion, but his physical traits are no joke. Different strokes for different folks. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:09 PM
26. Takk McKinley
Falcons, DE, UCLA
Height: 6-foot-2 | Weight: 250 lbs.

**  Falcons receive 26th overall pick; Seahawks receive 31st, 95th, 249th overall,  **

McKinley just raised the FCC's concerns to a code red after his dropping of a God D*** and an F*** bomb on live television. 

Having said all of that, he takes that same tenacity to the football field and terrorizes quarterbacks with alarming frequency. He will be slapped on the wrist by both the NFL and the Falcons going forward, but it will be a long afterthought once he gets his hand in the dirt and starts racking up the sacks. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:46 PM
27. Tre'davious White
Bills, CB, LSU
Height: 5-foot-11 | Weight: 192 lbs.

** Chiefs receive 10th overall; Bills receive 27th, 91st, future 1st (2018) **

White is a talented cover corner with the man and zone skills to start in the league from day one, however his tackling inadequacies will limit him to passing downs only, at least as a rookie. The hope is that he will fill out his frame and gain some toughness from NFL practices going forward. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:27 PM
28. Taco Charlton
Cowboys, DE, Michigan
Height: 6-foot-5 | Weight: 277 lbs.

Taco is not the cleanest prospect, as his one year as starter and inconsistent motor on tape raise concerns, but the belief is that Rod Marineli will be able to take this lump of clay and mold him into a prolific pass rusher. Ultimately, Taco fills an immediate need for Dallas, and considering their recent track record with draft picks, it is going to be hard to criticize their judgement. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:29 PM
29. David Njoku
Browns, TE, Miami
Height: 6-foot-4 | Weight: 246 lbs.

** Browns get 29th overall; Packers receive 33rd, 108th overall **

Njoku is the second best tight end in this class and would be the top in pretty much any other. He possesses a rare size/speed/power combo that should make him an instant impact player on this emerging Browns offense. Some slot and H-Back duties will be in his future, while fantasy owners may feel compelled to consider him in the later rounds this upcoming season. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:38 PM
30. T.J. Watt
Steelers, OLB, Wisconsin
Height: 6-foot-5 | Weight: 252 lbs.

If Watt weren’t so raw as a pass rusher, he’d likely be much further up the draft board, but the reality is that he only has one year of experience on defense, let alone as an outside linebacker. In any event, Watt produced 11.5 sacks as a first year starter, he has the bloodlines, and he is a freak of nature athlete. This should be a homerun pick for the Steelers who's biggest need happened to be at the edge rusher spot. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:39 PM
31. Reuben Foster
49ers, LB, Alabama
Height: 6-foot | Weight: 229 lbs.

** 49ers receive 31st overall; Falcons receive 34th, 111th overall picks **

The draft stock of Foster was a true wildcard entering Thursday night, as he did himself no favors throughout the pre-draft process. There were already initial worries about his love for partying in college, and then he went out at the combine and harassed a nurse – subsequently getting himself kicked out of Indy. To top it all off, at that same combine he failed a drug test with a diluted sample, giving teams who were still considering him in the first round a rollercoaster of emotions to deal with. While considering all of that off the field garbage, keep in mind that Foster is a baller on the field. He is a quick diagnoser of plays, tracks the football like a heat-seeking missile, and explodes upon ball carriers like one too. Provided he can stay clean off the field, this will be a homerun pick for the 49ers.

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:48 PM
32. Ryan Ramczyk
Saints, OT, Wisconsin
Height: 6-foot-6 | Weight: 310 lbs.

As the best offensive tackle prospect in the draft, it’s tough to say that the Saints could have done much better here, however there is a reason that he was still sitting there at 32nd overall. Having said all of this, Ramczyk is a guy who can come in and start as a left tackle from day one, offering plus athleticism and intelligence at the position for years to come. While not thier biggest need, the Saints got themselves a good player and a starter nonetheless with their second 1st round pick. 

Updated at: Thu April 27th 11:52 PM
Cordarrelle Patterson Headshot

Patterson was traded to the Patriots on Sunday, Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports.

Patterson led the league in kick return average in 2017 among qualifying players at 28.3 yards per return. He recorded only 31 catches for 309 yards, however, suggesting that the Patriots' acquisition of Patterson is largely meant to be a special teams boost. Further reinforcing this suggestion is the fact that the Patriots main kick returner in 2017, Dion Lewis, is now on the Titans.
6:39 pm (EST)
Brandon Marshall Headshot

Marshall's $5 million salary for 2018 is now fully guaranteed, Mike Klis of NBC 9News Denver reports.

The deadline for the Broncos to guarantee Marshall's contract was Sunday, and with the team making no huge moves in free agency to address the defensive side of the ball, it was pretty clear that Marshall was coming back.
4:36 pm (EST)
Anquan Boldin Headshot

Boldin still works out every day and believes he could continue playing in the NFL if he wanted to, though he said he hasn't put too much thought into the matter recently, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Boldin signed with the Bills last year during training camp and retired a couple weeks later to focus on humanitarian work, with his assessment of the Buffalo roster possibly a factor in the decision. He reportedly still had some level of interest in playing as of late October, but the Bills didn't surrender their rights to the 37-year-old wideout until the start of the new league year Wednesday. Boldin is free to sign with any team, but he's currently focused on his work with the Players Coalition, helping prospects prepare for the upcoming draft. While he might be enticed by an opportunity to play close to his home in Florida, neither the Dolphins nor Bucs are in need of a veteran possession receiver. The Panthers, Falcons and Saints could use a No. 3 receiver, but each of the three seems more inclined to test out younger, faster players.
12:38 pm (EST)
Mike Wallace Headshot

Wallace, an unrestricted free agent, could return to the Ravens, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

The Ravens signed Michael Crabtree and John Brown to replace Wallace, Jeremy Maclin and Michael Campanaro, but the team still could bring back one of its veterans if the price is right. Wallace doesn't seem to be generating much interest in free agency, despite leading an undermanned Baltimore offense in receiving yards both of the past two years. it doesn't help that he'll turn 32 in August, but he's only missed two games in a nine-year career and is coming off back-to-back seasons in which he's averaged above 8.0 yards per target.
9:55 am (EST)
Jon Bostic Headshot

Bostic (knee) is signing a two-year contract with the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Ryan Shazier (spine) already ruled out for the upcoming season, Pittsburgh has a glaring need at inside linebacker alongside incumbent 16-game starter Vince Williams. A 2013 second-round pick, Bostic has never quite lived up to his draft status, although he did pile up 97 tackles in 14 games while handling a three-down role for the Colts last season. He may need to compete with Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) -- and possibly another free agent or draft pick -- for the starting job. The oft-injured Bostic finished last season on IR due to a knee injury of unknown severity.
9:49 am (EST)
Nick Foles Headshot

Foles will collect a $3 million roster bonus from the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The bonus already was fully guaranteed, but the Eagles could've avoided the cap hit if they'd traded Foles by Saturday. While this doesn't necessarily rule out a trade, the team presumably would have preferred to deal Foles before the bonus kicked in. It does make sense to keep him around, as there's no guarantee Carson Wentz will be recovered from a torn ACL in time for Week 1.
9:42 am (EST)
Brandon LaFell Headshot

LaFell will collect a $1 million roster bonus, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

The Bengals surely would like to see some combination of John Ross (shoulder), Tyler Boyd and Josh Malone step up and push LaFell back to fourth or fifth on the depth chart, but it nonetheless makes sense to keep the 31-year-old around as insurance, given that he carries a modest 2018 base salary of $2.55 million, per OverTheCap. The team likely would've released LaFell before Sunday if it planned to do so at all, as his $1 million roster bonus now is guaranteed. He caught 64 of 106 targets for 862 yards and six scores in his first season with the Bengals, but then dropped off to a 52-548-3 receiving line on 88 targets last year. LaFell has only missed nine games in eight NFL seasons, and he's played all 16 games four of the past five seasons.
9:37 am (EST)
Eli Manning Headshot

Manning will collect a $5 million roster bonus, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

The Giants would've needed to release Manning by 4 p.m. Saturday to avoid paying him the bonus. This leaves no question he's part of the team's plan for 2018, though his presence on the roster doesn't preclude the use of the No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback. The Giants recently gave LT Nate Solder the largest contract for an offensive lineman in league history, perhaps making up for the losses of C/G Weston Richburg (concussion) and G Justin Pugh (back) in free agency. The team has an impressive group of young pass catchers and also signed G Patrick Omameh away from Jacksonville, but there's still work to be done along the offensive line before Week 1.
9:19 am (EST)
Billy Turner Headshot

Turner (hand) was re-signed by the Broncos on Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

Turner has been a depth lineman for Denver, but he was filling in as a starter at right tackle when he had his 2017 season cut short due to a hand injury. With the Broncos o-line in flux early in the free-agent portion of the offseason, Turner is expected to compete for a starting job at either guard or tackle.
Yesterday 9:39 pm (EST)
Ryan Grant Headshot

Grant (ankle) passed a physical during his visit with the Colts on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Grant agreed to a four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens earlier this week, but the deal was voided due to a failed physical. The 27-year-old is leaving Indianapolis without a contract, but the team passing him on the physical remains a good sign for his future prospects as the ankle injury doesn't appear to be a significant concern for each team. Next up for Grant is a visit to the Raiders, which could be looking to add some depth behind Amari Cooper and new addition Jordy Nelson.
Yesterday 9:24 pm (EST)
Kevin Pierre-Louis Headshot

Pierre-Louis is set to sign a two-year contract with the Jets on Monday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Pierre-Louis was traded to the Chiefs last July and set a career high with 41 tackles (31 solo) in 14 games last season. The 26-year-old will likely serve as a rotational inside linebacker and special teams contributor for the Jets in 2018.
Yesterday 8:11 pm (EST)
DeMarco Murray Headshot

Murray is scheduled to visit the Dolphins on Sunday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Murray has also visited the Lions and Seahawks since being released by the Titans last week. Kenyon Drake stepped in as the Dolphins starter after trading away Jay Ajayi and found some success down the stretch, but a move proven running back could benefit the team. The 30-year-old saw a reduced workload in 2017 with Derrick Henry taking over the Titans backfield, totaling 659 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 184 carries.
Yesterday 6:18 pm (EST)
Brandon Marshall Headshot

Denver appears set to pick up Marshall's 2018 team option, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

The Broncos have until Sunday's deadline to decide on Marshall's contract, but all reports indicate that the linebacker will be spending his 2018 season in the orange and blue. Marshall has spent five of his six NFL seasons in Denver. Last year, the 28-year-old registered 106 combined tackles and three sacks.
Yesterday 6:05 pm (EST)
Marshawn Lynch Headshot

Lynch will receive his $1 million roster bonus Sunday and remain with the Raiders for the 2018 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Raiders mulled their options over the first few days of free agency and opted to stick with Lynch for 2018 while also adding former Buccaneer Doug Martin. Lynch rushed 207 times for 891 yards (4.3 average) and had 20 receptions for 151 yards and seven total touchdowns for the Raiders in 2017, and appears slated to be the team's lead back again for the upcoming season.

Vinny Curry Headshot

Curry is set to sign with the Bucs, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The news of Curry's three-year deal reportedly worth up to $27 million comes on the heels of Robert Ayers release. Curry spent the last six seasons in Philadelphia where he accumulated 22 sacks over the years. The versatile pass rusher has shown flashes of star potential but has struggled with consistency at times.

Robert Ayers Headshot

Ayers (shoulder) was released by the Buccaneers on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Ayers started 10 games for Tampa Bay last season and registered 31 combined tackles to go along with two sacks. At 32 years old, Ayers still has some juice left in the tank so it's expected that he'll garner some suitors for his service. Just how much juice is left in the tank remains to be seen, however.

Bruce Irvin Headshot

Irvin sent out a tweet Saturday suggesting that he won't be asked to drop into coverage under new Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.

Irvin has spent much of his career in a hybrid end/linebacker role that allows him to rush the quarterback on most passing downs but also calls for some snaps in coverage. It helps explain why he's landed between 5.5 and 8.0 sacks in five of his six NFL seasons, as he typically doesn't get as many opportunities as other top pass rushers. Irvin is pleased with the new defensive scheme, perhaps eyeing the first double-digit sack season of his career. He did find ways to make up for the modest sack totals his first two seasons in Oakland, piling up 115 tackles and 10 forced fumbles in 32 games.

Deonte Thompson Headshot

Thompson, an unrestricted free agent, has drawn interest from the Bills, Broncos and Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The speedy 29-year-old enjoyed a career year in 2017, catching 38 of 69 targets for 555 yards (8.0 per target) and two touchdowns in 16 games for the Bears and Bills. Thompson may find a shot to compete for a No. 3 receiver job, but he's more likely to settle for No. 4/5 slotting and a potential role as a kickoff return man. A reunion with the Bills would provide the easiest path to a major role on offense.

Dylan Bradley Headshot

Bradley signed a contract for 2018 with Minnesota, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The undrafted free agent from Southern Mississippi spent last season on the practice squad. He'll compete for a depth role at defensive tackle this summer.

Seth Roberts Headshot

Robert remained on Oakland's roster through Friday, at which point his $2 million roster bonus and $2.25 million base salary for 2018 became fully guaranteed, Michael Gehlken of The Las Vegas Journal-Review reports.

Signed to a two-year extension last offseason, Roberts caught 43 of 65 targets for 455 yards (7.0 per target) and one touchdown in 15 games in 2017. The Raiders seemingly intend to give him another shot at the No. 3 receiver role under new head coach Jon Gruden, though the 27-year-old wideout could face competition from Cordarrelle Patterson and/or a draft pick. The Raiders probably would've released Roberts on Friday if they intended to sign a veteran for the No. 3 job.
Yesterday 2:50 pm (EST)
Kyle Wilber Headshot

Wilber signed with the Raiders on Saturday.

Wilber did not start for the Cowboys last season but appeared in all 16 regular-season contests. Entering his seventh season, Wilber will look to carve out a bigger role as a depth linebacker for the Raiders.
Yesterday 2:45 pm (EST)
Johnathan Hankins Headshot

Hankins (ankle) was released by the Colts on Saturday.

Hankins had just wrapped up the first season of a three-year, $27 million deal he signed with Indianapolis last offseason. Perhaps the team's new defensive scheme made the big fella a bit more expendable. Either way, Hankins, 25, should draw a sizable market for his services.
Yesterday 2:16 pm (EST)
Patrick Chung Headshot

Chung signed a contract extension with the Patriots on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Chung has been a staple of the New England secondary for the better part of a half decade now. Entering his 10th NFL season, it's reasonable to expect the safety's playing days are pivoting towards the end of the road. Chung has reached at least 84 tackles in each of the last four seasons with the Patriots.
Yesterday 1:20 pm (EST)
Terrelle Pryor Headshot

Pryor (ankle) will visit the Seahawks on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Coming off a breakout 2016 campaign, Pryor signed a one-year, $8 million contract at this time last offseason. He proceeded to catch only 20 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown in nine games with the Redskins, eventually landing on injured reserve due to a balky ankle that required arthroscopic surgery in late November. The 28-year-old wideout likely is close to full strength at his point, but he'll nonetheless have to settle for a much smaller contract this time around. The Seahawks have an obvious need, looking to replace both Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham. The team did sign Jaron Brown on Friday, but he'll likely slot in fourth or fifth on the depth chart at wide receiver.
