    Malik Hooker DB, Indianapolis Colts
    Colts declined S Malik Hooker's fifth-year team option for 2021.

    Hooker has yet to play a full season for the Colts, playing in 34 of a potential 48 games. Just last season, Hooker dealt with hand, knee and foot injuries. His name was also floated as a possible trade candidate by former NFL executive Michael Lombardi ahead of the draft. When on the field, Hooker lives up to his draft billing in a free safety role. The Colts have plenty of cap space available in 2021, so if Hooker produces a healthy and quality 2020 season, he could cost Indy a hefty price in the form of a long term contract. As Field Yates points out, among 2017 first-round picks: 17 were picked up, 13 were declined, one player was extended and one was outright released.

    Frank Gore RB, New York Jets
    Jets signed Frank Gore, formerly of the Bills, to a one-year contract.

    Gore previously led the Dolphins in carries (156) and rushing yards (722) during his last stint under coach Adam Gase in 2018. 37 in May, 'The Inconvenient Truth' inevitably returns to the AFC East for his 16th season to continue adding to his 15,347 career rushing yards, which remain the third-most in NFL history. Gase reportedly tried signing Gore before ex-GM Mike Maccagnan pivoted to Le'Veon Bell (vehemently against the coach's wishes) last offseason, suddenly making this a situation to monitor for fantasy implications. Gore will undoubtedly stroll into the Hall of Fame whenever he decides he's had enough, which won't be the case for at least one more year.

    Pernell McPhee LB, Baltimore Ravens
    Ravens re-signed OLB Pernell McPhee to a one-year contract.

    McPhee notched three sacks in seven games as a starter last season before landing on injured reserve with a torn triceps. Going on 32, McPhee might not necessarily start in 2020, but he should be needed for heavy snaps in the Ravens' young linebacking group. It, of course, is also possible McPhee ends up left off the 53-man roster after the Ravens waited two months to bring him back.

    I traded him away about 8 years ago, thinking that he would retire at the end of that season. Crazy!

    Prince Amukamara DB, Las Vegas Raiders
    Raiders signed CB Prince Amukamara, formerly of the Bears.

    The Raiders have been trying to add a veteran corner all offseason and finally were able to bring one in. Amukamara is 31 years old and exiting the prime of his career, but he can make starts in Las Vegas and be a mentor to the Raiders' youthful secondary. Last year with the Bears, Amukamara was graded as the No. 47 corner among 132 qualifiers by PFF and allowed 8.9 yards per target while in coverage.

    Ty Montgomery RB, New Orleans Saints
    NewOrleans.Football's Nick Underhill reports the Saints signed RB Ty Montgomery.

    The Saints will be Montgomery's fourth team since 2018. He showed plenty of promise as a RB/WR hybrid during his first 3.5 seasons with the Packers, but the 27-year-old back has struggled to find consistent playing time with the Ravens and Jets. Coach Sean Payton obviously has a weak spot for players that can play multiple positions, but it's hard to see Montgomery seeing more than a handful of touches per game inside of this loaded offense.

    Anthony Harris DB, Minnesota Vikings
    Vikings re-signed S Anthony Harris to a one-year, $11.441 million contract.

    It’s the value of the franchise tag. The two sides will have a couple months to work out a long-term deal, something both parties seem to be interested in, as of the latest reports. Minnesota would certainly like to get Harris signed long-term in order to get his cap number down.

    Patrick Chung DB, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed S Patrick Chung to a two-year extension through 2023.

    Chung gets a $3 million signing bonus and is now signed through his age-36 season. It'll likely be the final contract of his career. The 34th overall pick in 2009, Chung has spent 10 of his 11 seasons in New England with a one-year stint with the Eagles mixed in there. Devin McCourty, Duron Harmon, and Chung were the main components of the Patriots' three-man weave at safety last season, with Chung getting in on 654 defensive snaps. Harmon has since been traded to the Lions.

    Joe Flacco QB, New York Jets
    Jets signed QB Joe Flacco to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

    Another $3 million is available through incentives. The Jets used a fourth-round pick on FIU's James Morgan, but 35-year-old Flacco becomes the instant favorite to back up Sam Darnold, provided his health cooperates. Flacco is still recovering from neck surgery with an uncertain return date. It is possible he won't be ready to push David Fales by the time training camp begins. Always one of the league's lowest-ceiling quarterbacks, Flacco's floor has dropped dramatically in recent years. If he does nail down the No. 2 job, he will be one of the league's worst backups.

    Carlos Hyde RB, Seattle Seahawks
    Seahawks signed RB Carlos Hyde, formerly of the Texans, to a one-year contract.

    The Seahawks had made it well known they were hunting for a veteran runner to add to a backfield with a rehabbing Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, and they apparently decided to act on Hyde after Devonta Freeman wasn't interested in their asking price. The definition of a replacement-level runner at this stage of his career, Hyde should not end up more than an insurance policy as the Seahawks wait on Carson and Penny. Carson is expected to be ready for Week 1, though Penny is a candidate for the reserve/PUP list. 2020 will be Hyde's age-30 campaign. From a Dynasty league perspective, he is an injury hedge you stash with the knowledge you will likely be cutting him in August.

    Eli Apple DB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Panthers signed CB Eli Apple to a one-year contract.

    It's been 56 days since Apple's Raiders deal fell apart, and 71 days since he first agreed to terms with Las Vegas. Apple's public interest had been dead silent since the Raiders backed out of their agreement, but it is impossible to know what goes on behind the scenes of the coronavirus-affected market. Even though former first-rounder Apple has mostly been replacement-level to this point in his career, it's a nice addition for the Panthers' undermanned and unproven cornerback group. Apple is still three months shy of his 25th birthday despite entering the league in 2016. He could be a 1,000-snap player in Charlotte.

    Matt Judon LB, Baltimore Ravens
    Ravens re-signed LB Matt Judon to a one-year, $16.27 million contract.

    Judon was labeled as a tag-and-trade possibility, but the draft came and went with nary a peep about Judon moving. Perhaps the Ravens would rather just go all in on 2020. The sides still have well over a month to come to a long-term agreement. Judon is no one's idea of a truly elite pass rusher, but he has 24.5 sacks over the past three seasons. Seeing as Judon is already going on 28, it wouldn't be shocking were the Ravens to let Judon walk after playing out his one-year tender.

    Mike Hilton DB, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Steelers re-signed CB Mike Hilton to a one-year, $3.259 million deal.

    Hilton was a restricted free agent tendered at the second-round level. His window to sign an offer sheet elsewhere long ago closed, so this was his only recourse. The Steelers' nickel corner, Hilton should again find himself in the 600-700 snap range this upcoming season.

    Matt Feiler T, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Steelers re-signed OT Matt Feiler to a one-year, $3.259 million deal.

    Feiler started all 16 games for the Steelers last year but is expected to move from his usual spot at right tackle to left guard this upcoming season to accommodate for the retirement of All-Pro G Ramon Foster. Pittsburgh also has former Chiefs LG Stefen Wisniewski available if Feiler's transition falls flat. CB Mike Hilton additionally put pen to paper on his second-round tender Friday.

    Titans, Derrick Henry reach four-year deal just before deadline
    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 15, 2020, 4:15 PM EDT
    Getty Images

    Sometimes a deadline is what it takes to motivate both parties to get a deal done.

    That appears to be the case with the Titans and Derrick Henry, who reached an agreement on a four-year contract just before the 4 p.m. deadline for franchise players to sign long-term contracts. If they hadn’t come to an agreement, Henry would have had to play this season on a one-year deal.

    Instead, according to multiple reports, Henry gets a four-year, $50 million deal with $25 million guaranteed.

    Now the question is whether Henry will prove to be worth it. Running backs have been devalued across the NFL as the passing game has become more important, and teams that sign running backs to big-money contracts often come to regret it.

    In Henry’s case, he came on strong late last season and in the playoffs, and the Titans decided to double down on their late-season success. First they extended Ryan Tannehill, and now they’ve extended Henry. A year after making a surprise run to the AFC Championship Game, they’ll see if the same formula can lead them to the Super Bowl.

    Myles Garrett signs extension with Browns
    Posted by Josh Alper on July 15, 2020, 4:33 PM EDT
    Getty Images

    Word on Tuesday was that the Browns and defensive end Myles Garrett were close to finalizing a five-year extension and they got over the finish line on Wednesday.

    Garrett posted a video of him signing his new pact to his Instagram story on Tuesday afternoon. Garrett added another video that ended with a handwritten message.

    “Cleveland keep betting on me. World keep betting on us,” Garrett wrote.

    Reports pegged the total value of Garrett’s deal at $125 million and the $25 million average annual salary is the most for any defensive player. The first overall pick of the 2017 draft has 30.5 sacks in his first 37 NFL games.

    Chris Jones’ deal with Chiefs is done
    Posted by Charean Williams on July 14, 2020, 1:40 PM EDT
    Getty Images

    Not long after a report that the Chiefs and Chris Jones were close on a four-year contract came another report that the deal is indeed done.

    Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the sides have agreed to terms.

    The contract is worth $85 million, according to multiple reports, with $60 million guaranteed upon signing.

    It comes a day before the deadline for teams to sign players whom they franchised to long-term deals. Jones recently suggested he wouldn’t play without a long-term deal.

    Jones, 26, has 33 sacks and seven forced fumbles in four seasons in Kansas City. He made his first Pro Bowl in 2019.

    His signing completes a successful offseason for the defending Super Bowl champions, who were able to keep most of their roster intact and also signing quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a long-term deal.

    For those who said the Chiefs wouldn't be able to resign any key players, how' that looking?

    Also more off season news... Kenny Still gets arrested for protesting. No word on the length of the term. Word has it, his agent isn't doing very much. Media hasn't been able to reach Kenny on how negotiations went. Probably not to his liking.

    It’s crazy... need a serious reality check with this stuff. And to me, I thought the names paid tribute to that group or culture such as the Redskins.

    I don’t know if this is true but I was told that the family of the lady on the Aunt Jemima boxes is opposing the name change bc of what she stood for. We need to stop trying to please everyone... abolish the participation trophies and lets grow a backbone again!

    Wouldn’t be surprised if they went after NY “Yankee’s” next since that refers to Americans in general. It is especially popular among Britons, Irish, and Australians and sometimes carries pejorative overtones!
