    Jake Kumerow WR, Unsigned Free Agent
    Packers waived WR Jake Kumerow.

    Kumerow was buried behind Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, and Equanimeous St. Brown. His release is a good sign for CFLer Reggie Begelton's roster chances.

    Sean Davis DB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Washington released DB Sean Davis.

    Davis signed a one-year deal with a $2 million signing bonus in March. Washington saves $1.5 million from his release. With Davis gone, seventh-round rookie Kamren Curl is looking likely to make the final roster.

    Dexter Williams RB, Green Bay Packers
    Packers waived RB Dexter Williams.

    This boosts Jamaal William's 53-man roster odds. The No. 194 overall pick of last year's draft, Williams handled the ball just five times as a rookie. Still only 23, Williams boasts decent athleticism for his size (5-foot-11, 212 pounds). Typically, it would be unusual for a player who spent the entire previous season on the 53-man roster to earn a practice squad spot, but their expanded size this year (16) could help Williams' case.

    Taywan Taylor WR, Unsigned Free Agent
    Browns waived WR Taywan Taylor.

    They also cut Damion Ratley. Taylor was a healthy scratch for 13-of-16 games last year. The moves are a good sign for KhaDarel Hodge's roster chances.

    David Moore WR, Seattle Seahawks
    Seahawks WR David Moore has agreed to a pay cut.

    Moore had been an RFA tendered at the $2.133 million level. It's quite common for teams to tender players like Moore, wait out the clock, then try to lower the amount later. Moore is good for some yearly splash plays, but he is buried in Seattle's deepening receiver corps.

    Reports: Dolphins cutting Josh Rosen
    Posted by Charean Williams on September 4, 2020, 8:49 PM EDT

    The Dolphins are moving on from Josh Rosen after one season, according to multiple reports.

    The team tried to trade him, but when they couldn’t find a taker, they decided to waive Rosen. They still have a few hours to find a trade partner before Rosen officially hits the waiver wire.

    Miami traded second- and fifth-round choices for the quarterback after the 2019 draft, but Rosen became expendable after the Dolphins used a first-round choice on Tua Tagovailoa. Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start the season.

    Rosen made three starts for the Dolphins last season, going 0-3, before being benched. He threw for 567 yards with five interceptions and a touchdown.

    The Cardinals drafted him with the 10th overall choice in 2018, but he went only 3-10. Arizona traded him to the Dolphins after using the No. 1 overall pick on Kyler Murray in 2019.

    Rosen has not gotten much of a chance in either place but maybe a third team will give him more of a chance.

    Jacques Patrick RB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Bengals waived RB Jacques Patrick.

    He was competing for the third or fourth running back spot in Cincy after landing a deal out of the XFL. Patrick is a brick house at 6'3/236 and is believed to be a candidate for the Bengals' practice squad.

    Popular handcuff....

    Reggie Bonnafon RB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Panthers waived RB Reggie Bonnafon.

    Bonnafon was Christian McCaffrey's top backup last season under coach Ron Rivera, but the new staff decided to go in a different direction with Mike Davis and Trenton Cannon for the time being. Perhaps Bonnafon will get a second chance in Washington under Rivera and OC Scott Turner. He had an impressive 16-116-1 rushing line last season with six catches for 57 yards.

    Colts waived WR Daurice Fountain.

    Fountain wasn't able to practice until the final days of training camp due to multiple ankle surgeries. The surgeries came after he suffered a gruesome season-ending ankle injury heading last year. Fountain has yet to record a catch since being drafted with the No. 159 selection in 2018.

    Patriots cut Lamar Miller

    Lamar Miller is the odd man out in the Patriots’ crowded backfield.

    Miller has been released as the Patriots make their way down to 53 players.

    New England also has Sony Michel, James White, Damien Harris and Rex Burkhead in the backfield, so Miller had a lot of competition for a roster spot. The Patriots have also been mentioned as a potential suitor for Adrian Peterson, just as they were mentioned as a potential suitor for Leonard Fournette before Fournette went to Tampa Bay.

    Miller missed the entire 2019 season with a torn ACL, and his 2020 is now up in the air. From 2012 to 2018 Miller totaled 5,864 rushing yards and 1,565 receiving yards.

    Seahawks cut Shaquem Griffin

    One of the NFL’s most inspiring players is moving on from Seattle.

    Shaquem Griffin, who overcame having his left hand amputated as a child to make it to the NFL, has been released, according to Michael-Shawn Dugar of TheAthletic.com.

    Griffin will now go on waivers, where the other 31 teams will have the opportunity to claim him. If he clears waivers, he could end up back on the practice squad in Seattle.

    Griffin’s twin brother, Shaquill Griffin, remains on the Seahawks’ roster.

    Darrel Williams is the handcuff for CEH.....

    DeAndre Washington RB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Chiefs released RB DeAndre Washington.

    It locks in Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson as Clyde Edwards-Helaire's backup running backs for now. Washington didn't have a good camp despite his college connection with Patrick Mahomes, but he is a candidate to land as a depth option on another roster. Washington maxes out as a vet-minimum change-of-pace back.

    Duke Williams WR, Unsigned Free Agent
    Bills released WR Duke Williams.

    Injuries handed Williams a role down the stretch of the 2019 season, culminating in a ridiculous 10 Wild Card targets. The Bills got much deeper at wideout this offseason. They will presumably try to stash Williams on this year's expanded practice squad.

    Riddick spent 10 days in camp but couldn't unseat Jalen Richard as the No. 2 back behind Josh Jacobs. The Raiders want to put Riddick onto the practice squad and let rookie Lynn Bowden be active on game days as the third back.

    Keenan Allen WR, Los Angeles Chargers
    Chargers signed WR Keenan Allen to a four-year extension through 2024.

    Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal is worth "more than" $80 million. That probably means something like $80.125 million, but Rapsheet informs that Allen is now the second highest-paid receiver in the NFL. That would not normally be recommended with a 28-year-old slot man, but Allen is one of the league's most consistent producers and top route runners. At one point considered "injury prone," Allen has not missed a game since 2016. The Chargers can afford the extravagance with Justin Herbert on his rookie contract, while locking in a top weapon for a young quarterback is never bad. Allen is a high-floor WR2 in 2020 re-draft.

    Deebo Samuel WR, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers activated Deebo Samuel (foot) off the NFI list.

    This puts Samuel on track to return to practice. There's been optimism on Samuel's status for the start of the season, but he still has some hurdles to clear. Samuel figures to be on a snap count if he plays. He's looking like a Week 1 fade.

    Paul Richardson WR, Unsigned Free Agent
    Seahawks released WR Paul Richardson.

    There's an ongoing competition for the No. 3 receiver spot behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Richardson is out of the race for now, especially with Josh Gordon re-signed. He was a bust in Washington after a few quality seasons in Seattle a few years ago. Richardson is only a depth option moving forward.

    Lynn Bowden RB, Miami Dolphins
    Dolphins acquired RB Lynn Bowden and a 2021 sixth-round pick from the Raiders in exchange for a 2021 fourth-round pick.

    It's the same fourth-round pick the Raiders initially dealt to Miami in exchange for Raekwon McMillan. Bowden had never played running back before being designated there on draft night and reportedly failed to "flash a lot of speed" at camp, but this news still comes as a surprise. It will be interesting to see the variety of ways coach Brian Flores and OC Chan Gailey scheme up both slot WR Malcolm Perry, who previously played quarterback at Navy, and Bowden in 11 personnel. The third-round prospect can be dropped during the first waivers run of fantasy leagues if drafted to this point.

    Bills, Tre’Davious White agree to new contract

    Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White will be sticking around in Buffalo for a while.

    White and the Bills have agreed to a four-year contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. There was no immediate word on the terms of the deal.

    The Bills selected White with the 27th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He made his first Pro Bowl and was a first-team All-Pro in 2019.

    White was slated to make a $1.8 million base salary this year and then a $10.2 million fifth-year option salary next year. He’s sure to make significantly more than $12 million over the next two years now.

    I know this is not an offseason move as of yet.....

    Devonta Freeman RB, Unsigned Free Agent
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Devonta Freeman is visiting the Jaguars on Saturday.

    Jacksonville is the first team to bring Freeman in since he hired Drew Rosenhaus to represent him. It's the perfect fit as the Jaguars have nothing to lose in a year the team is clearly tanking ahead of the 2021 draft. Freeman's addition would obviously be a detriment to all, siphoning carries from Devine Ozigbo and targets from Chris Thompson. We urge caution if targeting anyone in this backfield during drafts this weekend.

    Jadeveon Clowney DL, Tennessee Titans
    Titans signed DL Jadeveon Clowney.

    Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports it's a one-year, $12 million contract for the edge rusher. It's nowhere near premium money, so he'll have to earn a long-term contract with his play this season. The Titans edged out the Saints and Seahawks in their pitch to Clowney, who only had 3.0 sacks across 13 injury-filled games last season. When healthy, he's a force against the run and a quality pass rusher, too. The Titans are set up for another playoff push as long as Ryan Tannehill doesn't regress too much.

    Jadeveon Clowney DL, Unsigned Free Agent
    Free agent Jadeveon Clowney tells Josina Anderson he has yet to make a decision on his new team.

    It appeared that the Titans had won the newfound Clowney sweepstakes with a one-year, $12 million deal, but Clowney is evidently relishing in a bidding war between Tennessee and New Orleans after months of his market being at a standstill. The Titans still appear to be the favorites, but it would seem they are going to have to further sweeten their offer. This could still get done Saturday night.

    Jadeveon Clowney says he’s going to the Titans
    Posted by Michael David Smith on September 6, 2020, 6:02 AM EDT

    Jadeveon Clowney has finally found his team.

    Clowney has chosen the Titans, he told Josina Anderson. There’s no word on the value of the contract.

    “It came down to familiarity over economics,” Clowney said. “Packing now to head there in morning.”

    The Saints and Seahawks had also been mentioned as potential destinations for Clowney, the former No. 1 overall pick of the Texans who played in Seattle last year.

    The Titans’ opener is on Monday night, September 14, against the Broncos, so Clowney will have an extra day to learn Tennessee’s defense. Clowney should provide an immediate impact, both as a pass rusher and a run stopper, and a Titans Defense that was mediocre last year should get better.

    Adrian Peterson is heading to the Lions.

    Josina Andersson reported this morning: "RB Adrian Peterson told me this morning he’s on his way to Detroit to sign with the Lions. “They’re giving me an opportunity to play. I know coach (Darell) Bevell from my days in Minnesota. Ultimately I feel comfortable going there and helping them to get better.”

    D'Andre Swift had been ranked around the RB25-RB30 range. Kerryon Johnson had been in the RB30-RB40 range. Adding Peterson into the mix may not have a giant impact, and it could help their career long term maybe from what they might learn. But it's hard to see his addition as anything but a negative for Swift and Johnson from an opportunity standpoint. ProFootballTalk reports, "Johnson has had trouble staying healthy during his time in Detroit, and Swift’s rookie training camp has had injury concerns as well."

    For Peterson, he's been an ageless wonder, and Washington did say the expected nice things about him when he left that it wasn't really about him and it was more about the other Washington backs. But Father Time is undefeated. We'd expect him to have some role but probably not significant.

    Could be good for him. Gets to be around Brady, the best there ever was. If he can’t learn from rubbing elbows with Brady then there’s no hope for him. Funny how at one time he was in the discussion for the top pick in his draft.

    Josh McCown QB, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles signed Josh McCown to the practice squad to serve as the team's emergency quarterback.

    McCown, 41, becomes the oldest practice squad player in league history. Living in Texas and joining the team in virtual meetings, McCown will serve as the Eagles' emergency quarterback should the team's other signal callers test positive for COVID-19. McCown most recently started three games for the Jets in 2018, completing 54.5 percent of his passes while throwing one interception and four picks.
