    George Iloka DB, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys signed S George Iloka, formerly of the Vikings, to a one-year contract.

    Obviously in the market for another safety, Dallas finally landed help in their secondary after failing to lock up both Eric Berry and Clayton Geathers in their previous meetings. Iloka will immediately get a shot at starting with only Xavier Woods and Jeff Heath currently manning those positions. Iloka was in on 116 snaps for Minnesota last season.

    E.J. Gaines DB, Buffalo Bills
    Bills signed CB E.J. Gaines, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year, $3.6 million contract.

    It is something of a homecoming for Gaines, who played one season with the Bills in 2017 before leaving for an injury-marred season with the Browns. Gaines will have a shot to earn a starting job on a depth chart which is wide open behind Tre'Davious White.

    Brandon Copeland LB, New York Jets
    Jets re-signed OLB Brandon Copeland.

    Signed to a one-year deal last March, Copeland had a mini-breakout with five sacks in 2018. He could once again play a large role on a defense still in need of pass-rushing help.

    Blaine Gabbert QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Buccaneers signed QB Blaine Gabbert, formerly of the Titans.

    The 29-year-old veteran will get another chance to play under coach Bruce Arians, this time as Jameis Winston's backup. Tampa Bay also re-signed Ryan Griffin in free agency, likely paving the way for the team to keep three players under center beyond camp. Gabbert made three starts for the oft-injured Marcus Mariota last season but performed poorly across the board. He went 2-3 in five starts under Arians in 2017 with the Cardinals.

    Yup. Go Ryan Griffin. Gabbert will look in the mirror and realize he's Blaine Gabbert and then he will proceed to suck. Griffin didn't look bad in limited action in the preseason last year he was just overshadowed buy fitzmagic. Gabbert should be used for Camp fodder and holding the clipboard. Don't get me wrong, if Winston were to go down and the planets aligned in a hellish way to put Gabbert in he may have fantasy relevancy. The Bucs will probably lose all the games he plays. But fantasy owners would have a decent QB2.

    There is high percentage that Gabbert starts for the Bucs this year. I'm predicting at least two games.

    Isaiah Crowell RB, Oakland Raiders
    Raiders agreed to terms with RB Isaiah Crowell, formerly of the Jets, on a one-year contract.

    Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal is worth "up to" $2.5 million. Crowell's addition is a hedge against Marshawn Lynch's return. 33-year-old Lynch is expected to decide his 2019 status following the draft. Crowell was excellent in spot duty for Gang Green last season, turning 143 carries into 685 yards (4.79 YPC). It is worth noting that 219 of those yards came in one game. A big-play threat who can catch a pass in a pinch, Crowell should make the Raiders' 53-man roster and has a decent chance at carving out a real role. Doug Martin is also a free agent, while DeAndre Washington failed to capture coach Jon Gruden's imagination last year. Jalen Richard is more of a passing-game specialist.

    Brandon Marshall LB, Oakland Raiders
    Raiders signed LB Brandon Marshall, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year contract.

    Per PFT's Mike Florio, the deal is worth "up to" $4.1 million. Injuries made 29-year-old Marshall's prime fairly short, but he is still capable of making plays as an off-ball linebacker. Any additional play-making ability is welcome for a Raiders defense that was essentially talent-less in 2018. If healthy — Marshall has missed 10 games over the past three years — he could play a lot of snaps for coach Jon Gruden.

    Robert Quinn DL, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys acquired DE Robert Quinn from the Dolphins in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick.

    Short of a day-three pick swap, that is as light as non-conditional compensation gets. Quinn has reportedly agreed to a new one-year, $9.2 million deal, taking a pay cut from his previously-scheduled $11.811 million salary. 2019 was already the last year of his contract. Briefly a terror earlier in his career, Quinn is now a situational pass rusher who pays frequent enough visits to the quarterback. He will help a defensive line missing suspended Randy Gregory.

    Matt Feiler T, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Steelers re-signed OT Matt Feiler to a one-year contract.

    He was an exclusive rights free agent. Feiler made 10 starts in a breakout 2018. His emergence allowed the Steelers to trade Marcus Gilbert to the Cardinals this offseason. Feiler will open 2019 opposite Alejandro Villanueva.

    Rashard Higgins WR, Cleveland Browns
    Browns signed WR Rashard Higgins to a one-year, $2.025 million contract.

    A restricted free agent, Higgins was given an original-round tender early last month. It was always unlikely any team would pay a fifth-round pick -- Higgins' original draft slot -- to sign the receiver, so it is not surprising he is back with the Browns. Higgins will compete for the No. 3 job behind Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry.

    Brett Jones C, Minnesota Vikings
    Viking re-signed C Brett Jones to a one-year, $950,000 contract.

    The deal can be worth a max of $1.5 million with incentives. Acquired from the Giants last August, Jones opened the season as the starting center but was eventually replaced by Pat Elflein. He should compete for a backup role this year.

    Daryl Worley DB, Oakland Raiders
    Raiders re-signed CB Daryl Worley to a one-year, $3.095 million contract.

    It's the value of the second-round RFA tender. Worley spent parts of 2018 with three different clubs after being shipped from the Panthers to the Eagles only to be released following a DUI and then landing in Oakland. Worley played 505 snaps for the Silver and Black and will again compete for playing time in the Raiders' secondary alongside Gareon Conley, Nevin Lawson, and Nick Nelson.

    Difficult signing for Kerryon.....

    C.J. Anderson RB, Detroit Lions
    Lions signed RB C.J. Anderson, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year contract.

    The Lions have their LeGarrette Blount replacement to pair with sophomore Kerryon Johnson. Detroit has talked all offseason how it wants to limit Johnson's touches and not rely on him as a workhorse. Anderson obviously had a huge Weeks 16-21 with the Rams to end last season, compiling an 89-488-4 rushing line in five contests, including three 100-yard games. Anderson, however, was running behind arguably the league's best run-blocking offensive line in a very favorable offense. That won't be the case in Detroit, as the Lions were 19th in adjusted line yards in the run game. Anderson turned 28 in February. Consider him an RB3 for the time being. Theo Riddick will still have a role on pass downs as well.

    Eric Murray DB, Cleveland Browns
    Browns acquired S Eric Murray from the Chiefs in exchange for DE Emmanuel Ogbah.

    With Eric Berry missing most of last season, Murray played 756 defensive snaps, earning marginal marks from Pro Football Focus. The 2016 fourth-rounder is by no means a difference-maker, but Browns GM John Dorsey drafted Murray in Kansas City. With Jabrill Peppers off to the Giants and Derrick Kindred cut on Monday, Murray should have an inside track at heavy snaps on the back end for Cleveland.

    Aaron Lynch DL, Chicago Bears
    Bears re-signed DE Aaron Lynch to a one-year contract.

    Lynch's first season with the Bears resulted in 16 tackles, three sacks, and one interception over 13 appearances (three starts). Still just 26, he'll have an opportunity to stand out and continue his stout run-stuffing presence in Chicago's trenches as long as he can stay healthy.

    Alfred Blue RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jaguars signed Alfred Blue, formerly of the Texans, to a one-year contract.

    Blue had numerous opportunities to usurp Lamar Miller as Houston's lead back as recent as last season but was never able to capitalize, bumbling his way to 150/499/2 and 3.3 YPC in his fifth and final year with the Texans. He'll join oft-injured veteran Thomas Rawls and second-year seventh-rounder David Williams as the only reserves behind lead horse Leonard Fournette. With a whopping 247 carries (59.3%) currently up for grabs from last season's production in Jacksonville, Fournette remains perennially underrated and a third-round steal in ongoing Best Ball leagues.

    Michael Bennett DL, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed Michael Bennett to a two-year, $16.75 million contract.

    The Eagles traded Bennett in part because he wanted a new deal, but it is still surprising the Patriots were willing to play ball. The new deal gives Bennett around $3.5 million more over the next two years than he was scheduled to make and gets him $4 million right now in the form of a signing bonus. The move saves New England $700,000 in cap space.

    Cardinals signed CB Tramaine Brock, formerly of the Broncos.

    Brock follows DC Vance Joseph to the desert after playing 436 snaps for Joseph's Broncos last season. Brock turns 31 before the season and doesn't have a whole lot left in the tank. The Cardinals, however, annually have one of the weakest cornerback groups behind Patrick Peterson. Brock will compete for playing time behind Peterson and new No. 2 CB Robert Alford.

    Seems like good money after bad....


    Randy Gregory DL, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys signed DE Randy Gregory (suspended) to a one-year extension through 2020.

    Gregory is suspended indefinitely, but this move suggests the Cowboys expect him to play again. The new contract turns $310,000 of Gregory's 2019 salary into a signing bonus and adds another year to the end of his deal. A second-round pick back in 2015, Gregory has played just 28 games in four seasons and is not going to add to that total this year. That said, he recorded six sacks in just 457 snaps last year. Even at 26, Gregory still has some long-term upside if he can stay out of trouble, and the Cowboys are making a low-cost bet that will eventually happen.
