    Leighton Vander Esch's play as a rookie has made Lee expendable.... Don't be surprised if Vander Esch is a top 5 LB this coming year.

    Sean Lee LB, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys restructured LB Sean Lee's contract.

    Lee was initially set to make $7 million in the final year of his contract, an amount the Cowboys were willing to part ways with. He'll now make $3.5 million in 2019 with an opportunity to earn up to $7 million with incentives. This also ensures he sticks with Dallas as depth this upcoming year. Still a tremendous coverage linebacker when healthy, Lee's injury woes led to him playing his fewest snaps (247) since his rookie campaign in 2018. He'll continue to mix-in sparingly behind the stout combination of Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.

    Danny Amendola WR, Detroit Lions
    Lions signed Danny Amendola to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.

    Cut by the Dolphins last week, Amendola was linked with a return to New England, but he instead signs with Patriots North -- GM Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia both made their names in New England. It is not a blockbuster signing for the Lions, but they needed someone to occupy the middle of the field with Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay on the outside. Even at 33, Amendola should be able to handle that job for one season.

    Dante Fowler DL, Los Angeles Rams
    Rams re-signed OLB Dante Fowler to a one-year, $14 million contract.

    The former No. 3 overall pick of the Jaguars, Fowler was acquired at the trade deadline last year for a pair of mid-round picks, so it made sense all along that the Rams would make it a point to bring him back after surrendering draft capital. Fowler has yet to develop into a premier pass rusher and may never do so, but he is still just 24 years old. He also gets to continue to be coached up by DC Wade Phillips, who has worked wonders with edge rushers. Fowler has 16 career sacks through three seasons -- he missed his entire rookie year with a torn ACL -- with a season-high of eight. He needs to start threatening that number regularly in addition to keeping up his strong edge presence against the run. The Rams would be wise to find him a bookend on the other side to take some pressure off Aaron Donald inside.

    Malik Jackson DL, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles signed DT Malik Jackson, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $30 million contract.

    The originally reported deal of three years and $10 million never made much sense, but this is still good business for the Eagles. Only 29, Jackson remains a quality and versatile interior pass rusher who should play a big role in replacing Michael Bennett's production. With Jackson on board, the Eagles will once again boast one of the best defensive lines in the league in 2019.

    A guy that was considered a middle of the road LT when the Pats traded for him.... One year with Dante Scarnecchia and he lands this contract.....


    Trent Brown T, Oakland Raiders
    Raiders signed LT Trent Brown, formerly of the Patriots, to a four-year, $66 million contract.

    That did not take long. Easily the best tackle available on the market, Brown had considerable leverage, and he used it to nab a deal which includes $36.75 million guaranteed and makes him the highest-paid tackle in the league based on average salary. It is questionable if he is worth that kind of investment, but he should at least be an upgrade over 2018 first-rounder Kolton Miller on Derek Carr's left side. Miller is expected to move to right tackle.

    Jason Peters T, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles signed LT Jason Peters to a one-year contract.

    Peters was under contract for $7.75 million in 2019, but it sounds like the two sides ripped up that deal and signed a new one, likely at a lower rate and with prorated money which lowers his cap hit this season. Even at 37, Peters remains a solid left tackle.

    Kwon Alexander LB, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers agreed to terms with LB Kwon Alexander, formerly of the Bucs, on a four-year, $54 million contract.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal contains $27 million guaranteed. At least as of right now, it makes Alexander the highest-paid inside linebacker in NFL history. They are eye-brow raising numbers for a player who not even the best linebacker available. 25-year-old (in August) Alexander is also coming off a torn ACL. He battled hamstring issues in 2017 and served a four-game suspension in 2015. Alexander is not an asset in coverage. We are frankly a bit baffled at the numbers. The 49ers are projecting a big step forward.

    True! But like someone said in another thread: they are hyping up the fan base in Vegas to sell season tickets. I think those are all good moves in a business sense.

  • WTCMWTCM Posts: 11,564
    If Vegas still needs help to sell out a stadium they will suffer in 4-5 years. Having a NFL franchise come to your city is enough reason to sell out. Its a high end corporate city. Selling out should be be an issue. Why even move there then.

    Justin Coleman DB, Detroit Lions
    Lions agreed to terms with CB Justin Coleman, formerly of the Seahawks, on a four-year, $36 million contract.

    As NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, the deal makes the ex-Patriots castoff the highest-paid nickel cornerback in the league. Coleman is reuniting with ex-Pats DC Matt Patricia after a productive two-year sojourn in Seattle. The deal certainly feels like an overpay. Rather than give a slot corner $36 million, Patricia's mentor Bill Belichick would simply groom a new one. Regardless, it fills a need on a Lions defense that wasn't good enough in 2018. Coleman is replacing Nevin Lawson, who was cut on Tuesday.

    Landon Collins agrees to terms with Washington
    Posted by Michael David Smith on March 11, 2019, 3:18 PM EDT
    Getty Images

    Landon Collins will stay in the NFC East.

    Collins told Josina Anderson of ESPN that he will be heading to Washington. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Collins will sign a six-year, $84 million deal.

    The 25-year-old Collins was drafted by the Giants with the 33rd overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. Many observers expected Collins, a three-time Pro Bowler, to get the franchise tag, but the Giants decided to let him walk.

    Collins will likely net the Giants a third-round compensatory pick in 2020, but seeing him go to a division rival, they may wish they had franchised him. Collins will get two opportunities a year to make the Giants regret letting him walk.

    Trey Flowers reaches deal with Detroit

    Defensive end Trey Flowers has agreed to terms on a five-year deal with the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    It reunites Flowers with Matt Patricia, formerly the defensive coordinator in New England and now the Lions’ head coach.

    The Lions had a need at the position with Ziggy Ansah a free agent. Detroit used the franchise tag on Ansah last year, and he played in only seven games with four sacks.

    Flowers became one of the top free agents when the Patriots chose not to franchise him, trading for Michael Bennett instead. Flowers ranks third on PFT’s list of top-100 free agents, the top available free agent with DeMarcus Lawrence and Jadeveon Clowney having received the franchise tag from their teams.

    Flowers, 25, has had 164 tackles, 21 sacks and five forced fumbles the past three seasons.

    In three postseason games this year, he had six tackles, two sacks and six quarterback hits.

    This is the closest thing the Redskins will ever have to Sean Taylor. Excellent steal from a divisional rival.

    No surprises here....

    Nick Foles QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jaguars agreed to terms with QB Nick Foles, formerly of the Eagles, on a four-year, $88 million contract.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal includes $50.125 million. It is a staggering amount of money since the Jaguars were probably more or less bidding against themselves. They were willing to do whatever it takes to upgrade Blake Bortles, who should now be released. Foles has made himself fantastically rich by playing well at the right time of year, as his playoff heroics have obscured a career 88.5 QB rating. Foles did play solid 2018 ball in place of Carson Wentz and will have some weapons to work with in Jacksonville. With some better injury luck and regression to form on defense, the Jags should be in the thick of it in the AFC.

    Frank Gore RB, Buffalo Bills
    Bills signed RB Frank Gore, formerly of the Dolphins, to a one-year, $2 million contract.

    Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Gore is "very close" with LeSean McCoy. Gore's addition likely means Chris Ivory will be cut. Although half a decade older, Gore will be a more versatile replacement. One of the most ageless players of the 21st century, Gore averaged a robust 4.6 yards on his 156 Dolphins carries a season ago.

    Titans re-signed SS Kenny Vaccaro to a four-year, $26 million contract.

    He got $11.5 million guaranteed. Vaccaro parlayed a one-year, prove-it deal last offseason into this multi-year deal after solidifying the position across from All-Pro FS Kevin Byard with 58 tackles, one pick, and a pair of sacks. The Titans cut the cord on Johnathan Cyprien, committing to Vaccaro instead.

    James is a powerful run blocker at 6-foot-7, 261 but has shown limited a pass-catching arsenal four years in. Nevertheless, he is now the favorite to start at tight end ahead of Michael Roberts as a situational red-zone threat.

    Jets agreed to terms with WR Jamison Crowder, formerly of the Redskins, on a three-year, $28.5 million contract with $17 million guaranteed.

    Crowder, 26 in June, is coming off an injury-riddled 388-yard season in D.C. but has been a high-efficiency target throughout his career with a 67.1% catch rate. Jermaine Kearse -- the Jets' primary slot receiver in 2018 -- pathetically hauled in just 48.7% of his targets. Crowder will team with Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa in three-receiver sets, with Chris Herndon at tight end.

    Another uninspring signing by the Bengals....

    Bobby Hart T, Cincinnati Bengals
    Bengals re-signed RT Bobby Hart to a three-year, $21 million contract.

    It's a surprising move after Hart finished 75th among 80 qualified tackles in PFF's 2018 grades. Hart is still only 24, but he's shown low-end starter capability at best through four NFL seasons. This deal suggests Hart will return as the Bengals' unquestioned starting right tackle across from LT Cordy Glenn.

    DeSean Jackson WR, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles acquired WR DeSean Jackson from the Buccaneers for undisclosed compensation.

    It's a huge get for the Eagles, whose 2018 offense severely lacked a vertical presence after Mike Wallace went down in Week 2. Jackson never quite gelled with Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay, but he continued to show take-the-top-off speed when targeted and has an abundance of juice left in the tank, even at age 32. Last year, Jackson averaged 18.9 yards per catch. In fantasy, Jackson will remain a high-variance producer behind Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery in the pecking order for targets.
