    Aaron Moorehead WR, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles hired Aaron Moorehead as WR coach.

    Moorehead played WR for the Colts from 2003-2007, posting a career-long receiving line of 31-330-1. He's spent the last five years as a receivers coach at the college level. The Eagles aren't specifically naming an offensive coordinator, so Moorehead could feasibly be very involved in play-calling.

    Mike Vrabel C, Tennessee Titans
    The Titans will go without an official defensive coordinator for the 2020 season.

    The Titans have also added former Saints coach and Redskins DC Jim Haslett to their staff as ILBs coach. It's possible Haslett ends up as coach Mike Vrabel's top defensive lieutenant, but there have been whispers it will be OLBs coach Shane Bowen. Vrabel had said he did not want to make an outside hire to replace Dean Pees. Obviously, Vrabel appears set to call his own defense.

    Quite the warrior....

    Eric Weddle DB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Eric Weddle announced his retirement after 13 seasons.

    One of the linchpins of the Chargers' defense from 2007-15, Weddle was either first- or second-team All-Pro every season from 2010-14. His first-team honors came in 2011 and 2014. He remained highly effective in Baltimore from 2016-18 before a quieter 2019 for the underachieving Rams. A play-maker and tackling machine at the back end of the defense, Weddle hangs up his cleats with 29 career picks, 9.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles and four defensive touchdowns. He was excellent in coverage. Now 35, Weddle missed only seven games in 13 years, only recently undergoing his first surgery for a meniscus trim.

    Ravens sign Andre Smith to one-year deal
    Posted by Josh Alper on February 6, 2020, 4:40 PM EST

    The Ravens signed tackle Andre Smith a few days before they took on the Titans in the playoffs and they’ll be keeping him on hand into the offseason.

    The team announced on Thursday that they have signed Smith to a one-year deal. No financial terms were disclosed.

    Smith was inactive for that loss to the Titans and played in six games for the Bengals earlier in the season. He started five of those games at left tackle.

    Smith was a 2009 first-round pick in Cincinnati and has played 104 of his 116 games with the Bengals. He also had stints with the Vikings and Cardinals in between tours of duty in Cincinnati.

    Rich Scangarello C, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles hired ex-Broncos OC Rich Scangarello as senior offensive assistant.

    Doug Pederson is going without an offensive coordinator for 2020, but Scangarello could be the next best thing. An ex-Kyle Shanahan assistant, Scangarello has just one year of play-calling experience at the NFL leve, but his firing from the Broncos did not seem particularly well deserved.

    Joey Slye K, Carolina Panthers
    Panthers re-signed K Joey Slye to a one-year contract.

    Big-legged Slye had a league-low 4.6% of his kickoffs returned this past season and went 25-of-32 on field goals. He went 16-of-22 from 40-plus yards. Slye had some hiccups, however, as the Panthers flirted with a change during the year. Slye eventually rebounded and will head into the offseason as the No. 1 kicker.

    Jim Haslett DL, Tennessee Titans
    Titans hired Jim Haslett as ILBs coach.

    Haslett spent last year out of the league following a three-year stint as Cincinnati's LBs coach under Marvin Lewis. A former linebacker himself, Haslett boasts 24 years of NFL coaching experience including a six-year stint as New Orleans' head coach from 2000-05. He inherits a strong Tennessee linebacking corps.

    T.C. McCartney C, Cleveland Browns
    Browns hired former Broncos QBs coach T.C. McCartney as an offensive assistant.

    McCartney was not retained after the Broncos fired OC Rich Scangerello this offseason. This will be McCartney's second go-round with the Browns after previously serving as an offensive quality control coach under Mike Pettine in 2014. In Denver, McCartney was praised for his work with Drew Lock, who won four of five starts down the stretch. At his new gig, McCartney will be tasked with reigniting Baker Mayfield, who followed up a stellar rookie year with a disappointing sophomore campaign in 2019.

    Browns hired Vanderbilt DC Jason Tarver as LBs coach.

    He returns to the NFL following a two-year stint at the college level. Tarver has largely served as a position coach, though he did endure a three-year stint as Oakland's defensive coordinator under Dennis Allen from 2012-14. The Browns are expected to run a 4-3 scheme under new defensive coordinator Joe Woods.

    Bengals hired Nebraska OC/WRs coach Troy Walters as assistant WRs coach.

    You know it's a slow news shift when we're blurbing assistant wide receiver coach hirings. A former NFL receiver and return specialist for the Vikings, Colts, Cardinals and Lions, Walters, Walters has coached at the college level since 2009, serving as Scott Frost's right-hand man at both Central Florida and Nebraska. This will be the second time Walters has worked with Zac Taylor following a previous stint together as assistants at Texas A&M. He'll have some interesting pieces to work with in Cincinnati including Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and potentially impending free agent A.J. Green, who could be retained on the franchise tag.

    Thomas Brown RB, Los Angeles Rams
    Rams hired South Carolina RBs coach Thomas Brown for the same position.

    He's the second South Carolina coach a team has poached in the last few days, joining receivers coach Bryan McClendon, who was hired by Pittsburgh over the weekend. Before defecting to South Carolina this past season, Brown had previously coached at his alma mater Georgia, where he developed a relationship with fellow alum Todd Gurley. Getting the most out of Gurley will be the 33-year-old's primary responsibility in Los Angeles. A former NFL running back himself, Brown never got on the field during his three-year playing career.

    Steelers hired South Carolina WR coach Bryan McClendon to the same position.

    McClendon has also served as the interim head coach at Georgia and the co-offensive coordinator for a season at South Carolina. At 36 years old, McClendon will be one of the youngest members of the Pittsburgh staff. He had a close relationship with former Pittsburgh receivers coach Darryl Drake, who passed away during training camp. McClendon will coach a talented group of young wideouts in Juju Smith-Schuster. James Washington, and Diontae Johnson. Smith-Schuster posted a career-low 552 receiving yards in 2019 while dealing with multiple injuries.

    Star Lotulelei reworks contract with Bills

    Defensive tackle Star Lotulelei and the Bills have agreed to restructure his contract ahead of the third year of the five-year deal he signed in 2018.

    Field Yates of ESPN reports that Lotulelei’s base salary for the 2020 season will drop from $6.25 million to $4.5 million. The original salary was not guaranteed, but Lotulelei’s $4.5 million is guaranteed and an injury guarantee has been added to the pact for the 2021 season.

    There is no other guaranteed money left in the final two seasons of Lotulelei’s deal.

    Lotulelei has started every game for the Bills over the last two seasons. He has 36 tackles, two sacks and an interception during his time in Buffalo.

    The Jets added to their coaching staff, hiring a former NFL defensive back.

    According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets have hired Leigh Torrence as their assistant defensive backs coach.

    Torrence’s coaching career began with the Saints as an intern, and he has been a defensive assistant since 2017.

    Torrence played seven years in the NFL, with stints with the Packers, Falcons, Washington, Saints, and Jaguars.

    He replaces Steve Jackson, who left for a job on the Bengals staff.

    Not a transaction per se....

    Quinton Dunbar DB, Washington Redskins
    Contract-year CB Quinton Dunbar has requested the Redskins release or trade him.

    Entering the final year of his deal, Dunbar is coming off a breakout season that saw him grade out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 cover corner out of 128 qualifiers. He had contract talks with the previous regime, but those talks have apparently stalled with the new group in D.C. "I don't know them, and they don't know me," Dunbar said. Dunbar is currently scheduled to pull in just a $3.25 million salary in 2020 and wants to be paid like a top corner. The secondary is an extreme weak spot for the Redskins already, so getting rid of Dunbar won't be easy. Dunbar will reportedly play for the Skins if his request isn't met, so this doesn't appear to be at a nasty stage of development. Dunbar turns 28 this summer.

    Ben McAdoo C, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jaguars hired ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo as QBs coach.

    McAdoo had been out of the coaching ranks since being fired by the Giants in Dec. 2017. He also interviewed for the Panthers' QBs coach opening. McAdoo made his coaching name as Aaron Rodgers' QBs coach in 2012-13, though it is obviously difficult to discern how much, if any, credit he deserves for Rodgers' era-defining play. McAdoo has somewhat of a mess on his hands in Jacksonville with overpaid veteran Nick Foles and streaky sixth-rounder Gardner Minshew.

    So much for the "Caserio wants out" rumors...

    Nick Caserio G, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed director of player personnel Nick Caserio to a contract extension.

    The terms are not yet known, but it's obviously a sigh of relief for the organization after it also managed to keep OC Josh McDaniels in-house. Caserio's contract was initially set to expire in May before the two sides agreed to a multi-year deal. In addition to negotiating contracts as the team's de facto general manager, Caserio's position is unique in that he also assists in drills at practice and organizes New England's scouting department from the top on down. 2020 will make for the 13th consecutive season Caserio's worked under his current title.

    And now this...

    Quinton Dunbar DB, Washington Redskins
    Contract-year CB Quinton Dunbar denies requesting the Redskins release or trade him.

    Dunbar refutes specifying that he wants to be elsewhere, stating those reports were "overblown" and "not a fact." Per Doc Walker of the Doc & Galdi radio show, the 27-year-old standout simply wants to know "where he stands with coach Ron Rivera" and if he's "one of the key guys" under the new regime. Currently scheduled to play out the final year of his deal for a mere $3.25 million, Dunbar has made it clear he wants to be paid like a top corner following his unexpected fifth-year breakout that resulted in him finishing as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 coverage corner among 128 qualifiers. He's not expected to holdout even if a new deal isn't reached.

    Anthony Firkser TE, Tennessee Titans
    Titans signed TE Anthony Firkser to a one-year contract extension.

    Firkser scored two postseason touchdowns and averaged a healthy 8.5 yards per target as a backup TE during the regular season. Still, he doesn't exactly boast the type of size (6-foot-2 and 246-pounds) and speed (4.87-second 40-yard dash) that figures to be put to consistent use inside of this run-first offense. Perhaps this is a sign that the Titans will part ways with Delanie Walker. Either way, Firkser is fully expected to work behind at least Jonnu Smith again in 2020.

    Ryan Grigson G, Unsigned Free Agent
    Browns hired ex-Colts GM Ryan Grigson to serve in an advisory and consulting role.

    After being fired by the Colts after the 2016 season, Grigson was a senior personnel executive for the Browns and a consultant for the Seahawks for one season a pop. His familiarity with the current Browns front office from his one-year stint with the team in 2017 was enough for him to land this "advisory" role. A title like this likely means NFL teams don't view him as a serious GM candidate at the moment. He wasn't on a front office roster last season.

    Anthony Lynn C, Los Angeles Chargers
    Updating a previous report, Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn's contract extension puts him through the 2021 season.

    The extension just added one season to his current contract, but it at least gets him into the new stadium for two seasons. This upcoming year will be a difficult one to manage with Phillip Rivers out of town and with the business side of things up in the air. Despite having strong rosters on paper, Lynn has a 26-22 record in three seasons with the team. Another sub-7 win season will put Lynn on the hot seat.
