    Josh Norman DB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Redskins released CB Josh Norman.

    Norman's release was a no-brainer for the Redskins, who will absorb $3 million in dead money while saving $12.5 million against the cap. After the Panthers rescinded his franchise tag in 2016, Norman cashed in by landing a five-year, $75-million windfall from the Redskins, at that time the NFL high-water mark among cornerbacks. He never came close to living up to his huge contract, underachieving throughout his four-year tenure in the nation's capital. The brash 32-year-old was a massive liability in 2019, garnering PFF's 12th-worst coverage grade out of 128 positional qualifiers. He barely played down the stretch, falling behind Fabian Moreau in the Redskins' pecking order. The one-time Pro Bowler could be an interesting reclamation project if he finds the right home, though obviously Norman isn't the lockdown presence he once was.

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

    This comes mere hours after the Redskins cut the cord on perennial underachiever Josh Norman. Pink-slipping Richardson was an easy call, costing Washington just $2 million against the cap. Had the Redskins kept him, P-Rich would have been due a $6.5 million salary in 2020. Richardson had a tough go of it in Washington, compiling a lackluster 48-507-4 receiving line over 17 appearances after joining the team on a five-year contract in 2018. Injuries and erratic quarterback play were at least partially to blame for the 27-year-old's ineffectiveness and Richardson should benefit from a change of scenery. Perhaps he'd be a possibility for Seattle, where P-Rich spent his first four seasons before defecting to Washington in free agency.

    Texans release Vernon Hargreaves
    Posted by Josh Alper on February 14, 2020, 4:40 PM EST

    When the Texans claimed cornerback Vernon Hargreaves off of waivers in November, they also acquired the right to cut him before his $9.594 million salary for the 2020 season kicked in.

    The Texans have taken advantage of that option. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team cut Hargreaves loose on Friday. Hargreaves’ cap hit was set to be the same as his salary, so the Texans will have all of that money to use this offseason.

    The Buccaneers had exercised the fifth-year option on the 2016 first-round pick’s contract before cutting him, but it was guaranteed for injury only until the start of the new league year in March.

    Hargreaves had 21 tackles and one tackle for loss in six games with the Texans. He started all nine games he played for the Bucs before being waived.

    Redskins Expected to Release Jordan Reed Amidst 7th Concussion. This almost surely paves the way for the Redskins to sign Greg Olsen.

    With Dissly & Hollister, I don’t see that happening.

    Dissly apparently whon't be ready before the season and Hollister was just OK in my opinion. So, why not?

  • I didn't realize that Dissly wouldn't be ready on time. Hmmm, maybe Olsen really is on their radar.

  • I didn't realize that Dissly wouldn't be ready on time. Hmmm, maybe Olsen really is on their radar.

    He's been linked to Seattle, Buffalo and Washington but if he really wants to take a shot at a SB, I would think he'd sign in Seattle.

    D.J. Humphries T, Arizona Cardinals
    Cardinals re-signed LT D.J. Humphries to a three-year, $45 million contract.

    Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Humphries gets $29 million guaranteed. Once viewed as a bust as the 24th overall pick of the 2015 draft, the 26-year-old managed to start all 16 games for the first time in his career last season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 58 tackle out of 81 qualifiers. He'd previously missed 37 games across his first four seasons due to injuries. Humphries is by no means an upper-echelon player at his position, but this at least solidifies Kyler Murray's blind side for the next couple seasons at least. At $15 million per year, Humphries would be the league's third-highest paid left tackle.

    Ike Hilliard WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Steelers hired former Redskins receivers coach Ike Hilliard as their receivers coach.

    Hilliard had previously served as Washington's receivers coach for the past six years, most recently assisting Terry McLaurin in the 24-year-old's breakout rookie campaign (58/919/7). Hilliard also worked with the Dolphins as their assistant receivers coach in 2011, and filled a similar role with the Bills in 2013. 2020 will be his 10th year in the league coaching fellow wideouts.

    Falcons re-signed P Ryan Allen.

    The ex-Pat spent eight games punting for the Falcons in 2019, turning in an awful net punting average of 37.5. For now, he will compete with Sam Irwin-Hill.

    Younghoe Koo K, Atlanta Falcons
    Falcons re-signed K Younghoe Koo to a one-year, $660,000 contract.

    Koo was an exclusive rights free agent, so his options were to accept the Falcons' offer or become a civilian. After washing out with the Chargers, Koo revived his career in the second half for the Falcons last season, draining 15-of-16 field goal attempts while executing a number of onside kicks. Still only 25, there is a chance Koo becomes the Falcons' long-term replacement for Matt Bryant.

    Nigel Bradham LB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Eagles released LB Nigel Bradham.

    The move creates $4.5 million in cap space. An Eagles starter since 2016, 30-year-old Bradham spent most of his 2019 time in the middle. He had an unexcused absence from the team late in training camp but escaped without suspension. He did miss four games with injury. Also an ex-Bill, Bradham will turn 31 the opening month of the season. The Eagles are currently very thin at linebacker.

    Adrian Peterson RB, Washington Redskins
    Redskins exercised Adrian Peterson's 2020 option.

    Peterson will be back in Washington for his age-35 season. Coach Ron Rivera notes Peterson's leadership is vital to the organization as they look to change the culture with a new regime. Peterson led the team in rushing last season (898 yards and 5 touchdowns on 211 carries) but should take a back seat to Derrius Guice if the youngster can get healthy. Peterson will be a very forgettable handcuff entering 2020 fantasy drafts.

    Demetrius Harris TE, Chicago Bears
    Bears signed TE Demetrius Harris to a one-year contract.

    Harris lands on his feet only 48 hours after Cleveland announced his release. Previously inked to a two-year deal by former Browns GM John Dorsey, Harris totaled 15/149/3 receiving in his lone season with the team's old regime. 29 in July, Harris is more than familiar with coach Matt Nagy's scheme stemming from their time together in Kansas City. Chicago's tight ends room remains a looming question mark with Trey Burton (fresh off hip surgery) and Adam Shaheen sitting out 15 games due to injuries last year.

    Cameron Batson WR, Tennessee Titans
    Titans signed WR Cameron Batson to a one-year contract extension.

    Batson missed all of 2019 after coming down hard on his shoulder during training camp. He made 11 appearances for the Titans the year prior, finishing with 8/82 receiving over 178 offensive snaps. He'll compete for a final spot on the team's depth chart behind teammates Kalif Raymond, Cody Hollister, and Rashard Davis.

    Brandon Dunn DL, Houston Texans
    Texans signed NT Brandon Dunn.

    Initially scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March, Dunn's new deal — the details which have yet to be disclosed — implies impending free agent DT D.J. Reader could have one foot out the door. Dunn's counting stats (25 tackles and one sack) were lacking in '19 but he did soak up the third-most snaps (399) among Houston's defensive interior. The Texans would ultimately have more patchwork to do in their trenches if Reader is indeed on his way out.

    Jordan Reed TE, Unsigned Free Agent
    Redskins released TE Jordan Reed.

    The move comes after seven seasons, and sadly Reed's seventh documented concussion as a pro. This one cost him all of 2019. He cleared the protocol just this week. The move clears $8.5 million in cap space while leaving behind only $1.8 million in dead money. Still five months shy of his 30th birthday, Reed was on an early-career trajectory to be one of the best tight ends of the decade, but even beyond the head issues, injuries have absolutely wrecked his career. He has never appeared in more than 14 games, and has cleared 12 just twice in seven years. Reed seems committed to continuing his career, but he figures to give retirement consideration. It is an absolute shame for a player whose talent was never in question.

    Vikings finalize staff by hiring Roy Anderson, Imarjaye Albury
    Posted by Charean Williams on February 20, 2020, 5:24 PM EST

    The Vikings announced they have finalized their coaching staff.

    Their final hirings came Thursday when they announced the additions Roy Anderson and Imarjaye Albury. Anderson will serve as the assistant defensive backs coach and Albury the assistant defensive line coach.

    Albury spent the past three seasons coaching in the college ranks. He was a graduate assistant at the University of Arkansas in 2018-19, working primarily with the defensive line.

    Anderson was the lead defensive analyst for national champion LSU last season.

    He has 14 years of experience in the NFL, including two seasons as the Bears’ safeties coach in 2017-18. Anderson also coached the secondary for four seasons with Indianapolis (2012-15) after seven seasons (2005-11) with the Ravens.

    Mike Zimmer will have 21 assistant coaches this season.

    Damon Harrison DL, Unsigned Free Agent
    Lions released DT Damon Harrison.

    "Snacks" no more. The move creates $6.7 million in cap space, and comes after a disappointing season for the run-stuffer extraordinaire. Harrison saw his Pro Football Focus grade crater while playing his fewest snaps since 2014. He missed one game with a groin injury. Harrison's down year does need to be viewed through the prism of an overall terrible Lions defense. 2020 will be Snacks' age-32 campaign. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Harrison contemplated retirement last season but wants to continue playing. His goal on the open market will be landing guaranteed money for the upcoming season. He is unlikely to secure any for 2021.

    Prince Amukamara DB, Unsigned Free Agent
    Bears released CB Prince Amukamara.

    Chicago is also parting ways with WR Taylor Gabriel, which saves the team a combined $13.5 million against the cap. Amukamara started 15 games for the Bears last season as a 30-year-old, finishing as PFF's No. 43 corner out of 133 qualifiers. He'll be a target for win-now teams in free agency as he heads out of the prime of his career. Expect Amukamara to land a CB2 job in the next few months.

    Chris Conley WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
    The Jaguars exercised Chris Conley's team option.

    Conley will return to Jacksonville in 2020 after showing promise as a No. 3 receiver last season. He set new career-highs in catches (47) and yards (775) after being brought in as an unrestricted free agent from Kansas City. Conley offers big-play potential and will be a double-digit round flier in fantasy drafts after the offseason. Conley is now entering his prime as a 27-year-old. The Jaguars also picked up S Jarrod Wilson's option for the 2020 season.

    Jets signed WR Josh Doctson.

    Doctson was cut by the Redskins last August and spent part of 2019 on the Vikings' practice squad. He's a low-risk flyer for the Jets, who aren't expected to re-sign Robby Anderson and could move on from Quincy Enunwa. Doctson should stick around for the offseason but he's long shot to make it past final cuts.

    Don Martindale C, Baltimore Ravens
    Ravens signed DC Don Martindale to a three-year extension.

    Martindale's new contract will make him the highest paid defensive coordinator in the league. After the Marcus Peters trade, Martindale's defense was amongst the best in the AFC, which led to a 14-2 regular season record. The Ravens have to be worried that Martindale could bolt for a head coaching gig in upcoming seasons, so making him the highest paid defensive coordinator was necessary to keep him in the building.
