    Tyler Kroft agrees to deal with Bills
    Posted by Josh Alper on March 11, 2019, 5:41 PM EDT

    The Bills released tight end Charles Clay ahead of free agency and didn’t sign Dwayne Allen after visiting with him last week, but they’re set to add another tight end to the mix.

    Agent Mike McCartney announced that Tyler Kroft has agreed to a three-year deal with the Bills. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the deal is worth $18.75 million and can go up to $21 million.

    Kroft spent the last four seasons with the Bengals, but was limited to five games in 2018 due to a foot injury. He was a full-time starter in 2017 and caught 42 passes for 404 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Jason Croom and Logan Thomas are also on hand at tight end for the Bills.

    Adam Humphries WR, Tennessee Titans
    Titans signed WR Adam Humphries, formerly of the Bucs.

    Not quite dynamic but highly efficient, Humphries posted better than a 70 percent catch rate in his final two years with Tampa Bay and gives Marcus Mariota a bankable possession solution between Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor. Humphries, 26 in June, broke out for season highs in catches (76), yards (816), and touchdowns (5) in 2018 as one of Jameis Winston's favorite targets.

    Mitch Morse C, Buffalo Bills
    Bills agreed to terms with C Mitch Morse, formerly of the Chiefs.

    A former second-round pick, Morse started all 49 games he appeared in during his time with the Chiefs. He missed five games last season with a concussion and nine games the previous year with a foot injury. Morse will slide in as the Bills' new pivot with Spencer Long, who was signed earlier this offseason, likely manning left guard. The Bills still need to address the right side of their line. Morse was Pro Football Focus' No. 6 center last season.

    Mike Davis RB, Chicago Bears
    Bears agreed to terms with RB Mike Davis, formerly of the Seahawks.

    The former fifth-round pick of the 49ers finally found a home and a role last season as the Seahawks' third-down back behind bruiser Chris Carson. With Rashaad Penny slated for a bigger role in Seattle, Davis moves on to Chicago to team with Tarik Cohen and whoever else the Bears add at the position. With Davis now in the fold, Jordan Howard can start packing his bags.

    Buster Skrine DB, Chicago Bears
    Bears agreed to terms with CB Buster Skrine, formerly of the Jets, on a three-year contract.

    This would seem to signal that free agent nickel CB Bryce Callahan will not be back with Chicago. Skrine, 30 next month, mans the slot and is a natural replacement, even if he isn't the same level player as Callahan. Perhaps being surrounded my more defensive talent in Chicago can elevate his game. Skrine has a concerning injury history, particularly with concussions. He'll slide in between outside cover corners Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara for new DC Chuck Pagano.

    Tyrann Mathieu DB, Kansas City Chiefs
    Chiefs agreed to terms with S Tyrann Mathieu, formerly of the Texans, on a three-year, $42 million contract.

    The safety market is out of control, and it makes the Rams' meager two-year, $10.5 million deal with Eric Weddle a couple days ago look like a total steal. The Texans really wanted Mathieu back but were only said to be offering about $9.5 million annually. The Chiefs made safety a priority next to Eric Berry, and even Berry's health and standing with the team can't be taken for granted. Mathieu turns 27 in May and remains firmly in the prime of his career.

    Devin Funchess WR, Indianapolis Colts
    Colts agreed to terms with WR Devin Funchess, formerly of the Panthers, on a one-year contract.

    This is the type of signing GM Chris Ballard prefers to make. With teams shelling out insane money in free agency, Ballard instead takes a flier on a talented wideout like Funchess who is coming off a down season in Carolina. Funchess is by no means an All-Pro, but he can certainly elevate his game in Indy with a quarterback and offense upgrade from Cam Newton to Andrew Luck. The deal has a max value of $13 million should Funchess hit all his incentives.

    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.

    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.

    This is a pretty significant loss for TB.
    Ya it is, if he is all the way back, Frisco is not a bad spot for him from a FF standpoint. Speculated to play the Will backer there.
    This is a bummer. Would have much rather seen them part ways with Ggerald McCoy. He's a shell of what he once was.

    Yes good for Godwin, BUT (notice big but) Godwin should not be taking the kind of punishment that Humphries took. The Bucs need to find some fodder to take the hit in order for Godwin to make the plays.

    Stud LB moves, Weddle, Suggs now Mosley gone from one of the best defenses in the league last year..... Ravens have some work to do....


    Report: C.J. Mosley agrees to five-year deal with Jets
    Posted by Josh Alper on March 12, 2019, 6:23 AM EDT
    Getty Images

    A report indicated linebacker C.J. Mosley‘s preference was to return to the Ravens as long as there wasn’t a huge gap between what they were offering and what another team was willing to pay him as a free agent.

    We’re not sure what the Ravens were offering, but it appears they weren’t able to close enough of that gap. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Mosley has agreed to a massive five-year deal with the Jets.

    Rapoport reports that the deal is worth $85 million with $51 million in guaranteed money. That’s bigger than the four-year, $54 million deal that Kwon Alexander agreed to with the 49ers and would set a new standard for inside linebackers.

    As expected, the Jets have been busy in free agency since the legal tampering window opened on Monday. Mosley is joined at linebacker by Anthony Barr and the team has also reached agreements with wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy.

    Ja'Wuan James T, Denver Broncos
    Broncos agreed to terms with RT Ja'Wuan James, formerly of the Dolphins, on a four-year, $52 million contract.

    James is now the league's highest-paid right tackle, at least for the moment, at $13 million per year. He'll surely be passed the next time a right tackle signs a contract, but this still feels like an overpay. James is still just 26 and is coming off a down 2018 after a promising 2017 campaign. The Dolphins never really seemed to fully commit to him after taking James 19th overall in 2014. In Denver, he'll replace Jared Veldheer at right tackle but could even be asked to switch sides if former first-round LT Garett Boles doesn't get his play in order. The Broncos still have a lot of work to do on the offensive line when it comes to protecting their new statue QB Joe Flacco.

    Jets have reworked the LB corp....

    Anthony Barr LB, New York Jets
    Jets agreed to terms with LB Anthony Barr, formerly of the Vikings.

    The Jets had been linked to Barr in the lead-up to free agency and they get a coveted pass rusher after missing out on Trey Flowers, who signed with the Lions. Barr was the No. 9 overall pick of the 2014 draft out of UCLA, where he was able to rush the quarterback and register 23.5 sacks over his final two seasons there. However, Minnesota used him as an off-ball 4-3 linebacker, severely capping his upside in the sack department. The Jets figure to unleash Barr and see if he has it in him to be a force off the edge. It fills a huge need for GM Mike Maccagnan, who has been looking for edge help for what seems like an eternity.

    Kareem Jackson DB, Denver Broncos
    Broncos agreed to terms with DB Kareem Jackson, formerly of the Texans, on a three-year contract.

    Jackson, 31 next month, is another key member of the Texans' defensive backfield bolting town, after CB Kevin Johnson signed with the Bills and Tyrann Mathieu the Chiefs earlier Monday. Jackson has experience playing outside corner, nickel corner, and free safety. He has plenty of versatility but is probably ticketed for safety in Denver. Jackson had a huge game in Denver last season, which probably led to the Broncos liking him even more.

    Sheldon Richardson set to join Browns
    Posted by Josh Alper on March 12, 2019, 7:59 AM EDT
    Getty Images

    The Browns are set to add a piece to their defensive line when deals with free agents can become official on Wednesday.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson intends to sign a three-year deal with Cleveland.

    Richardson signed a one-year deal with the Vikings in free agency last year and spent one season with the Seahawks after a trade with the Jets in 2017, so the Browns would be his fourth team in as many years. He started all 16 games with the Vikings and recorded 49 tackles and 4.5 sacks during his lone year in Minnesota.

    The Browns are also set to add Olivier Vernon to a front seven that includes Myles Garrett, Emmanuel Ogbah, Larry Ogunjobi, Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey.

    Another Raven gone.....

    Za'Darius Smith LB, Green Bay Packers
    Packers agreed to terms with OLB Za'Darius Smith, formerly of the Rams.

    Baltimore is losing yet another defender, although this one was more expected than the departures of C.J. Mosley and Terrell Suggs. A fourth-round pick in 2015, Smith did not make much noise through his first three seasons, but he made a mark with 8.5 sacks last year. One-season wonders tend to lead to the biggest free agent misses, but the Packers had a big hole at pass rusher and needed to make a move. At least on paper, Smith should help.

    Adrian Amos DB, Green Bay Packers
    Packers agreed to terms with S Adrian Amos, formerly of the Bears.

    The Packers have traditionally treaded lightly early in free agency, but they made two big moves on Tuesday morning, also adding ex-Ravens OLB Za'Darius Smith. Unlike Smith, Amos has been a solid, consistent contributor throughout his career and should immediately upgrade the secondary. This is a good signing.

    Teddy Bridgewater QB, New Orleans Saints
    Saints re-signed Teddy Bridgewater.

    According to NFL Network's Jane Slater, Bridgewater had a bigger offer on the table from the Dolphins, who also could give him a chance to compete for a starting job, but he decided to stick around as Drew Brees' backup and potential successor. It is great news for the win-now Saints, who will retain one of the best backups in the league.

    Gipson was reported as a target for the Texans on Tuesday morning, and they quickly got a deal done. Despite being cut by the Jaguars last week, Gipson remains a quality deep safety who will help fill the void left by Tyrann Mathieu and Kareem Jackson. This is a good signing for Houston.

    Second LB signing, getting Martinez some help......

    Preston Smith LB, Green Bay Packers
    Packers agreed to terms with OLB Preston Smith, formerly of the Redskins.

    It has been a busy Tuesday morning in Green Bay with the Packers already adding S Adrian Amos and OLB Za'Darius Smith. Pass rusher was one of Green Bay's biggest needs heading into free agency, so it is not surprising they double dipped at outside linebacker. Smith only recorded four sacks last year, but he had eight the year before and still consistently created pressure last season.
