    Donte Moncrief signs a 2 year deal with Steelers

    This could be a very good sleeper signing.

    Mike Iupati G, Seattle Seahawks
    Seahawks signed OG Mike Iupati, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year contract.

    Signed to a big deal in 2015, Iupati's time in Arizona was marred by injury, but he still remained an effective guard when on the field, especially in the running game. If he can stay healthy, Iupati should be an upgrade on ex-LG J.R. Sweezy, who left Seattle to join the Cardinals.

    L.J. Fort LB, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles signed LB L.J. Fort, formerly of the Steelers, to a three-year contract.

    The deal is reportedly worth "up to" $10 million and contains $1.9 million in guarantees. Fort was forced into more action on defense than usual last season, and he held his own. He is certainly not a replacement for Jordan Hicks, but this could end up being a shrewd signing.

    Max Garcia C, Arizona Cardinals
    Cardinals signed OG Max Garcia, formerly of the Broncos.

    A fourth-round pick in 2015, Garcia started 41 games for the Broncos across four seasons before tearing his ACL during practice last November. That injury will limit Garcia's availability during his first offseason in Arizona, but the Cardinals have enough holes along the offensive line that he should be able to compete for a starting job.

    Luke Stocker TE, Atlanta Falcons
    Falcons signed TE Luke Stocker, formerly of the Titans, to a two-year contract.

    Stocker spent time with new-Falcons OC Dirk Koetter in Tampa before joining the Titans during the 2017 season. He will serve as a blocking complement to Austin Hooper. With Hooper entering the final year of his rookie deal, it would not be surprising if the Falcons added another tight end in the draft.

    Christian Covington DL, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys signed DL Christian Covington, formerly of the Texans, to a one-year contract.

    A sixth-round pick in 2015, Covington stuck around Houston for four seasons as a rotational lineman. He will likely be asked to fill the same role in Dallas.

    Golden Tate WR, Unsigned Free Agent
    NFL Network reports the Patriots are interested in free agent Golden Tate.

    We are also hearing the sun is hot. The Patriots brought in Maurice Harris and Bruce Ellington for visits on Thursday, but Tate is simply on a different level than those two. With Tate seemingly encountering a colder than expected market, the Patriots could end up getting the 30-year-old at a bargain.

    Talk about a guy that never lived up to expectations....



    Tavon Austin WR, Dallas Cowboys
    Cowboys re-signed WR Tavon Austin.

    There was talk this time last year about the Cowboys giving "web back" Austin 12-24 touches per game, but he predictably ended up with 14 total touches on offense. He did chip in as a punt returner at times, however, and should have that role to himself this season with Cole Beasley no longer on the team.

    D.J. Fluker G, Seattle Seahawks
    Seahawks re-signed RG D.J. Fluker to a two-year contract.

    Fluker was a great fit for the Seahawks' run-heavy attack last season, so bringing him back always made sense. If Mike Iupati, who was signed earlier on Thursday, can stay healthy, the Seahawks have the makings of a road-grading guard duo.

    Eric Kush C, Cleveland Browns
    Browns signed OL Eric Kush, formerly of the Bears.

    Kush opened last season as the Bears' starter at left guard, but he ended the year as a reserve, which is the role he likely will be asked to occupy in Cleveland. Versatile, Kush can play every position along the interior line.

    Tevin Coleman RB, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers agreed to terms with RB Tevin Coleman, formerly of the Falcons, on a two-year, $10 million contract.

    This would seem to indicate the Niners will move on from Jerick McKinnon, who missed all of 2018 with a torn ACL after signing a multi-year deal with the Niners last March, but coach Kyle Shanahan has never been opposed to a total timeshare in the backfield. Perhaps the money-rich Niners will just hang onto all three of McKinnon, Coleman, and Matt Breida and let it ride. Coleman was expected to command more term than this two-year deal, so it may just be a chance for the 49ers to add more talent and for Shanahan to bring in a familiar face after coaching Coleman in Atlanta. Making McKinnon a post-June 1 cut would save $3.75 million against the cap. His $3.7 million salary will be guaranteed if still on the team April 1. This will be a situation to monitor closely.

    Tevin Coleman RB, San Francisco 49ers
    Tevin Coleman's contract with the 49ers is worth just $8.5 million over two years.

    It was originally reported as a $10 million contract, but that is the max value ($10.6 million). Even worse, the deal does not come with a signing bonus and pays him just $3.6 million in year one, giving the 49ers the option to cleanly get out after one season. The team-friendly deal means the 49ers should be able to keep Jerick McKinnon is they so choose.

    Ha Ha Clinton-Dix DB, Chicago Bears
    Bears signed S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, formerly of the Bears, to a one-year contract.

    Even with Eric Berry out there, Clinton-Dix was the best safety still on the board. He will immediately slide into Adrian Amos' departed spot in center field. Although a downgrade, Clinton-Dix is a snap hog who usually forces about 4-5 turnovers per year. He is not a liability and can generally hold his own in coverage.

    Jason Verrett DB, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers signed CB Jason Verrett, formerly of the Chargers, to a one-year, $3.6 million contract.

    Once a burgeoning star, Verrett has been limited to five games over the past three seasons by injury. The latest is a torn Achilles' tendon he suffered last July. He tore his ACL in 2016. Going on 28, Verrett is a poor bet to regain his pre-injury form but a low-risk flier for a 49ers team intent on turning the corner in 2019.

    Malcom Brown DL, New Orleans Saints
    Saints signed DT Malcom Brown, formerly of the Patriots, to a three-year, $15 million contract.

    Brown will immediately slide in as the Saints' starting nose tackle. The Patriots turned down Brown's 2019 team option last May, and he proceeded to earn, by far, the lowest Pro Football Focus marks of his career. Still only 25, however, Brown will be a prime bounce-back candidate along the Saints' excellent defensive line. At 6-foot-2, 320 pounds, Brown occupies a ton of space.

    Antone Exum DB, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers re-signed S Antone Exum to a one-year, $895,000 contract.

    A longtime bit player, Exum was forced into a career-high seven starts last season, notching a sack, interception and defensive touchdown. He returns as a spark plug/special teams type.

    Everson Griffen DL, Minnesota Vikings
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Vikings DE Everson Griffen has agreed to a restructured contract.

    In other words, 31-year-old Griffen is taking a pay cut after mental health issues limited him to 11 games in 2018. NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reports it is in the $3 million range. Griffen had been due $11.4 million between salary and bonuses. His $10.9 million base salary was set to become fully guaranteed on Friday. Previously a game in and game out type of player, Griffen had the best year of his career in 2017. He could certainly rebound to better form in 2019.

    Bruce Ellington WR, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed WR Bruce Ellington, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year contract.

    A Patriots receiver if there ever was one, Ellington is a 5-foot-9 slot man who caught 31 passes across seven games between the Texans and Lions last season. He will be far from guaranteed of cracking the Patriots' 53-man roster in what is shaping up as a typically unsettled Pats receiver corps, though he is the kind of player who could not only make the team but carve out a meaningful role.

    B.W. Webb DB, Cincinnati Bengals
    Bengals signed CB B.W. Webb, formerly of the Giants.

    A 13-game starter for the Giants last season, he will be reuniting with DBs coach Lou Anarumo, who is now the Bengals' defensive coordinator. Those starts were a career high for a player who entered 2018 with just 10 to his name. Ideally for the Bengals, Webb would not be higher than third in snaps in the team's cornerback group, and preferably lower.

    So much for visiting the Pats..... lol


    Golden Tate WR, New York Giants
    Giants signed WR Golden Tate, formerly of the Eagles, to a four-year, $37.5 million contract.

    Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal includes $23.5 million "fully guaranteed." It is both an understandable and baffling move. It is understandable in the context of the G-Men having an embarrassing post-Odell Beckham receiver depth chart. Baffling in, why are the Giants not outright tanking after their calamitous past 12 months? GM Dave Gettleman can't seem to make up his mind. Although he's going on 31, Tate still has plenty of shiftiness left, though 2018 was his worse season since becoming a full-time starter in 2012. Already all in on small ball, the G-Men are tripling down on short passes and quick outs as Eli Manning decays into forced retirement. Tate will be a quantity over quality fantasy bet in 2019.

    I think he’ll do actually pretty well in NY, he’s a dependable WR we need now. But NY needs to focus on the O line and then after that focus again on the O line!!!

    Jordan Matthews WR, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers signed WR Jordan Matthews, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

    Coming off his second go-around with the Eagles, Matthews caught 20 balls in 14 games last season. Although he is still only 27 (in July), Matthews has essentially been worn out by lower-body injuries. He will be fighting for one of the final spots in what should be a jumbled 49ers receiver corps.

    Markus Golden DL, New York Giants
    Giants signed OLB Markus Golden, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year contract.

    Looking to rehab his value and salvage his career after a 2017 ACL tear, Golden is reuniting with ex-Cardinals DC James Bettcher, under whom Golden had a 12.5-sack season in 2016. If healthy, he could provide some pass-rushing heat for a defense that has essentially zero of it right now. Golden turned 28 on Wednesday.

    Kevin White WR, Arizona Cardinals
    Cardinals agreed to terms with WR Kevin White, formerly of the Bears.

    Going on 27, the No. 7 overall pick of the 2015 draft will try to jump start his career after yet another lost campaign in 2018. Actually healthy this time, White was still limited to four catches in nine games. He has 25 career grabs to go along with his lengthy injury history. Even in rebuilding Arizona, White's odds of making the 53-man roster are not great.

    Teddy Bridgewater QB, New Orleans Saints
    Saints re-signed QB Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year, $7.25 million contract.

    The deal is fully guaranteed. Bridgewater announced the news himself on Twitter. In spurning a likely opportunity to start in Miami, Bridgewater has opted for another year of holding Drew Brees' clipboard, with an eye toward succeeding him as starter. Bridgewater said as much himself. Although still more of a projection than anything else as a potential long-term starter, Bridgewater is unquestionably one of the league's top backups, if not the best. It's an excellent hold for the Super Bowl-or-bust Saints.
