    Sean Davis DB, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Steelers signed S Sean Davis to a one-year contract.

    Davis departed Pittsburgh back in May for Washington, and was able to secure a $2 million signing bonus before his release this week. Now he's back with the team that knows him and drafted him. Not bad business. Davis adds depth behind Minkah Fitzpatrick and Terrell Edmunds.

    Trey Quinn WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jaguars signed WR Trey Quinn to the practice squad.

    Quinn, who started six games as Washington's slot receiver last season, was waived by the Football Team yesterday. He'll bring his Michael Scarn touchdown dance to Jacksonville, though a path to playing time for Quinn is hard to find with DJ Chark, Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, and Laviska Shenault at wide receiver for the Jags.

    Dexter Williams RB, Green Bay Packers
    Packers signed RB Dexter Williams to the practice squad.

    Williams, 23, will start the season on Green Bay's practice squad after spending 2019 on the 53-man roster. Packers beat writer Ryan Wood said the team would continue to develop Williams, who had an 84th percentile burst score coming out of college. He has a long way to go before he's fantasy relevant.

    Cameron Heyward DL, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Steelers signed DE Cameron Heyward to a four-year, $71.4 million extension through 2024.

    Pro Football Focus' No. 2 interior defensive lineman behind Aaron Donald last season, Heyward is genuinely one of the more underrated stars in the sport. The 31-year-old former No. 31 overall pick in 2011, Heyward has amassed 29 sacks over the last three seasons while playing top-notch run defense. An every-down lineman, Heyward is now the league's fourth-highest paid interior lineman behind Donald, DeForest Buckner, and Chris Jones if the $71.4 million numbers are correct.

    Kareem Hunt RB, Cleveland Browns
    Browns signed Kareem Hunt to a two-year, $13.25 million contract extension.

    The deal includes $8.5 million guaranteed. Currently set to make $3.26 million on a one-year tender in 2020, Hunt's annual salary will double that mark and keep him locked up in Cleveland through his age-27 season. Hunt averaged 5.5 targets per game upon joining the Browns in Week 10 last year and projects for a similar role behind Nick Chubb this season. He's a top-of-the-line RB3 with a direct path to week-winning production if Chubb goes down.

    DeAndre Hopkins WR, Arizona Cardinals
    Cardinals signed DeAndre Hopkins to a two-year, $54.5 million contract extension.

    The deal includes $42.75M guaranteed at signing. The three years left on his current deal essentially morph into a five-year, $95 million contract with $18.8 million annually through 2024. The last year in his age-31 season is voidable, but that would force the Cardinals to pay up $39.5 million at some point upon releasing him. With no-trade and no-franchise tag clauses in place, the road has been paved for Hopkins to finish his career with Kyler Murray in Arizona.

    Jalen Ramsey DB, Los Angeles Rams
    Rams signed CB Jalen Ramsey to a five-year, $105 million extension.

    The deal includes $71.2 million in guarantees. Ramsey resets the cornerback market, as the $21 million AAV is $3.5 million more than what Tre'Davious White got from Buffalo. Ramsey, who was entering a walk year, is now signed through 2025. With Ramsey signed, Los Angeles may turn its attention to locking up Cooper Kupp.

    Cory Littleton LB, Las Vegas Raiders
    Raiders restructured LB Cory Littleton’s contract.

    Littleton was set to make $11.25 million in his first season with the Raiders. This clears $8.3 million in cap space by converting Littleton’s salary into a signing bonus. Littleton just signed a three-year, $36 million deal in March.

    Zack Martin G, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys restructured RG Zack Martin’s contract.

    The move saves $8M in cap space. This is notable after Dallas had talks about free agent Earl Thomas. Martin is in the third season of a six-year, $84 million contract he signed in 2018.

    Dare Ogunbowale RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jaguars signed RB Dare Ogunbowale, formerly of the Bucs.

    With Ryquell Armstead on the COVID-19 list and Devine Ozigbo suddenly sidelined with a hamstring injury, the Jaguars needed a backfield body. Ogunbowale lost his roster spot in Tampa Bay when the Bucs signed ex-Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette, so the two are essentially trading places. Ogunbowale will pitch in on special teams and spell James Robinson and Chris Thompson on offense.

    Jason Peters reworks deal with Eagles, can make up to $8 million
    Posted by Josh Alper on September 10, 2020, 9:36 AM EDT

    Word in late August was that Jason Peters wanted more money from the Eagles if he was going to take over at left tackle for the injured Andre Dillard and the two sides have worked out a revised deal for his services.

    The Eagles announced the agreement on Thursday morning. Peters’ agent Vincent Taylor told multiple reporters that his client’s deal is now worth up to $8 million. He had initially signed a one-year, $3 million deal to rejoin the team as their replacement for Brandon Brooks at right guard.

    The revised deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and $4 million in guaranteed money.

    The Eagles looked at other options to replace Dillard, but head coach Doug Pederson announced this week that Peters would be back at his familiar position. Matt Pryor is expected to start at right guard.

    Brandon Williams DL, Baltimore Ravens
    Ravens DT Brandon Williams has restructured his contract.

    Williams was due $19 million over the next two years. He's now guaranteed $8.25 million, with a base value of $15.75 million. The move creates $3 million in cap space for Baltimore.

    DeMarcus Lawrence DL, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys signed DE DeMarcus Lawrence to a one-year extension.

    It's a voidable year for cap purposes. Dallas is converting $15 million of Lawrence's salary to a signing bonus, clearing $12 million they can roll over into 2021. Lawrence is in the second season of a five-year, $105 million deal he signed last April.

    Stephon Gilmore DB, New England Patriots
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Patriots have raised Stephon Gilmore's salary to $15.5 million this season.

    The Patriots are bumping Gilmore's salary after the recent extensions of Tre'Davious White and Jalen Ramsey. Gilmore outplayed the five-year, $65 million deal he signed in 2017. He was owed just $10.5 million this season. Gilmore can now earn up to $17.5 million with incentives.

    Yeah man, a lot of that RB draft class got paid..... minus Fournette, lol. CMC, Kamara, Cook, Mixon.... even Hunt got an extension even though it's much smaller.

    Cooper Kupp WR, Los Angeles Rams
    Rams signed WR Cooper Kupp to a three-year, $48 million extension.

    The Rams went with a short-term deal for Kupp, who settled for less than the $20 million annually Keenan Allen got from the Chargers. Kupp's $16 million APY still places him in the top-12 for receivers. Kupp set career highs in 2019 and should take a step forward after the Rams moved on from Brandin Cooks. Signing this extension gives Kupp a chance to land another big contract in his age-31 season.

    As reported by Crapman, here are the details....

    Dalvin Cook RB, Minnesota Vikings
    Vikings signed RB Dalvin Cook to a five-year, $63 million extension.

    There was talk Cook would hold out this summer but he reported to camp on time. Cook then broke off contract talks with Vikings in August. The sides were able to come together to get something done before Week 1. Cook's new deal has a $15.5 million signing bonus and his $12.6 million APY makes him the sixth highest paid back ahead of Derrick Henry. He got $2.8 million less annually than Alvin Kamara, who had 25 percent of his contract guaranteed. Cook is now signed through 2025.

    As reported by Crapman, here are the details....

    Alvin Kamara RB, New Orleans Saints
    Saints signed RB Alvin Kamara to a five-year, $75 million extension.

    It comes with $34.3 million in guarantees. The $75 million is new money, with Kamara's total contract valued at $71.1 million. New Orleans needed to move cap space to sign Kamara, who was in the final year of his rookie deal. Kamara's $15.4 APY is now behind only Christian McCaffrey. It's a huge commitment from GM Mickey Loomis given the Saints' cap issues. Kamara missed two games while playing through a torn MCL last year and has knee injuries going back to college. With Drew Brees likely in his final season, the Saints are locking up Kamara as the centerpiece of their offense.

    Sheldon Rankins DL, New Orleans Saints
    Saints DT Sheldon Rankins restructured his contract.

    The Saints added two voidable years and prorated $6 million of his $7.69 million salary. It clears $4 million this season. Rankins is in the final year of his rookie deal and still set to be a free agent. The Saints could use the added cap space toward an Alvin Kamara extension.

    Demario Davis LB, New Orleans Saints
    Saints signed LB Demario Davis to a three-year, $27 million extension.

    He gets $18 million guaranteed. It's slightly more than the three-year, $24 million deal Davis signed in 2018. Davis played 93 percent of snaps with 29 pressures and 32 run stops as PFF's top graded inside linebacker last year. The Saints now have him signed through 2023.

    Mohamed Sanu WR, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers signed WR Mohamed Sanu, formerly of the Falcons and Patriots.

    The 49ers placed Deebo Samuel (foot) on injured reserve after he suffered a setback during his rehabilitation. Sanu has experience with coach Kyle Shanahan and likely slides into a notable role immediately, as long as his ankle cooperates. Training camp reports from New England were negative on that front, which ultimately made the receiver-needy Patriots release him. Sanu can be added in deep fantasy leagues but shouldn't be started in Week 2.

    Not a move but interesting in that possible realm...


    Devonta Freeman RB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Free agent Devonta Freeman is visiting with the Eagles on Friday.

    It's the first time we've heard from Freeman since he left the Jaguars' facilities without a contract prior to Week 1. Miles Sanders was a full participant in practice throughout the week, so this is likely nothing more than the team doing its due diligence for potential depth. Freeman's visits have increased since shedding his former representation for Drew Rosenhaus.

    Robert Woods WR, Los Angeles Rams
    Rams WR Robert Woods signed a four-year extension worth $65 million.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Woods' deal is worth a maximum of $68 million. Woods in 2019 was 12th in receptions and and 16th in receiving yardage in Sean McVay's offense. His new deal is larger than Cooper Kupp's three-year, $48 million contract. Woods and Kupp should be centerpieces of the Rams offense for years to come.

    Bears, Tarik Cohen agree to three-year contract extension
    Posted by Michael David Smith on September 20, 2020, 5:56 AM EDT
    Getty Images

    The Bears and running back Tarik Cohen have made a deal.

    Cohen and the Bears have agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $5.75 million a year, according to multiple reports.

    The 5-foot-6, 191-pound Cohen has never been an every-down back, but he can do a lot of things well for the Bears. Last year he carried 64 times for 213 yards, caught 79 passes for 456 yards, returned 33 punts for 302 yards and returned two kickoffs for 23 yards.

    Bears General Manager Ryan Pace, who will be on the hot seat if the team struggles this year, has been attempting to secure some of the key players he has acquired during his tenure in Chicago to contract extensions. Cohen is one; the biggest one remaining is wide receiver Allen Robinson.

    Ezekiel Ansah DL, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers signed DE Ziggy Ansah to a one-year contract.

    It took three workouts, but Fowler reports the team will (finally) finalize a one-year deal with the 31-year-old veteran. One can only assume the litany of injuries to Nick Bosa (torn ACL), Solomon Thomas (knee), and Dee Ford on Sunday pressed the issue, getting Ansah in-house immediately. He's totaled 50.5 career sacks across seven seasons.

    Blake Bortles QB, Denver Broncos
    Broncos signed QB Blake Bortles to a one-year contract.

    Broncos brought Bortles in for a visit last year but will make his signing official this time given the extended absence of Drew Lock (shoulder). Jeff Driskel is expected to start Week 3 against the Bucs, but Bortles provides a backup option since the team only kept two quarterbacks coming into the year. Bortles also offers veteran experience with 76 career starts compared to Driskel's 13.
