    Andrew Adams DB, Detroit Lions
    Lions signed S Andrew Adams, formerly of the Bucs.

    A restricted free agent, Adams was not tendered an offer by the Bucs. A safety by trade, Adams played a few snaps in the slot last season. He managed to pick off four passes on just 368 snaps. The Lions had been a man down at safety since cutting Glover Quin. Perhaps Adams will get to compete for a legitimate role on defense.

    Tony Lippett DB, New York Giants
    Giants re-signed CB Tony Lippett to a one-year contract.

    The ex-Dolphins starter has made just three regular season appearances since the end of the 2016 season. He missed 2017 with a torn Achilles' tendon. Lippett turns 27 in July.

    Kenjon Barner RB, Atlanta Falcons
    Falcons signed RB Kenjon Barner, formerly of the Panthers.

    Barner will supposedly compete for No. 3 duties on offense, but his key to making the 53-man roster will be return work on special teams. Barner carried the ball 19 times across nine games between the Patriots and Panthers last season.

    Antonio Hamilton DB, New York Giants
    Giants re-signed DB Antonio Hamilton to a one-year contract.

    Hamilton played zero snaps on defense last season but is a core special teamer. 2019 will be his age-26 campaign.

    Mike Pennel DL, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed DT Mike Pennel, formerly of the Jets.

    Pennel was let go by Gang Green despite having a highly-effective 2018 against the run. He's a low-cost, no-risk addition for a Patriots team that just lost Malcom Brown and will likely see free agent Danny Shelton walk, as well. 6-foot-4, 332-pound Pennel turns 28 in May.

    Matt LaCosse TE, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed TE Matt LaCosse, formerly of the Broncos.

    A 2015 undrafted free agent, LaCosse notched 24 of his 27 career receptions in 2018 but was not tendered a contract offer by Denver. A Gronk-ian 6-foot-6, 255 pounds, LaCosse entered the league with 4.64 speed. He could end up a Patriots lifehack type of signing.

    Alex Okafor DL, Kansas City Chiefs
    Chiefs agreed to terms with DE Alex Okafor on a three-year contract.

    Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the deal is worth "up to" $24 million. The Chiefs had a need on the outside after flipping franchise player Dee Ford to the 49ers. Coming back from a torn Achilles' tendon last season, Okafor ended up starting all 16 games, registering 4.5 sacks while plugging the run. Okafor is not a star player, but he should provide quality snaps for a defense the Chiefs desperately need to be better.

    Maurice Harris WR, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed WR Maurice Harris, formerly of the Redskins, to a one-year contract.

    A restricted free agent who was not tendered an offer by the Redskins, Harris notched 28 of his 40 career receptions last season. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Harris could provide a bigger body in the slot than the Patriots are accustomed to. With the Patriots' receiver corps typically unsettled, 26-year-old Harris is a player to keep an eye on in Dynasty leagues.

    Terrence Brooks DB, New England Patriots
    Patriots signed S Terrence Brooks, formerly of the Jets, to a two-year contract.

    Barely used on defense throughout his five-year career, Brooks is being signed with a special teams role in mind. Bill Belichick takes the third phase of the game as seriously as any coach in football.

    Jordy Nelson WR, Unsigned Free Agent
    Raiders released WR Jordy Nelson.

    Nelson's fate was sealed after the Raiders lavished $44 million on Tyrell Williams. It also comes after the Raiders already paid Nelson's 2019 roster bonus. De facto GM Jon Gruden had previously insisted Nelson would be back for 2019. What Gruden says has had little correlation with what he does in Oakland. Although three steps slower than he was during his prime, Nelson played decent high-volume football for the Raiders down the stretch last year. He should have a market if he opts to continue playing.

    Brian Poole DB, New York Jets
    Jets signed CB Brian Poole, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

    Poole will slide into Buster Skrine's old spot in the slot. A restricted free agent, Poole was not tendered an offer by the Falcons. Unusually, he then received more money than he would have under his tender. Poole was good but not great as the Falcons' primary nickel back over the past three years. More than anything, he will be bringing experience and durability to the slot for Gang Green.

    Geoff Swaim TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jaguars signed TE Geoff Swaim, formerly of the Cowboys.

    Swaim ended last season on I.R. following wrist surgery. He had a 26-242-1 line with the Cowboys last year after catching 11 total passes the previous three seasons. The Cowboys didn't need Swaim back after Jason Witten came out of retirement. For now, Swaim is penciled in atop the depth chart in Jacksonville.

    Texans signed CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year contract.

    Boddy-Calhoun wasn't tendered an offer as a restricted free agent in Cleveland. The 26-year-old has position versatility with the ability to play safety and nickel corner as well as special teams. Boddy-Calhoun joins FS Tashaun Gipson and CB Bradley Roby in the Texans' made-over secondary after losing Kareem Jackson, Kevin Johnson, and Tyrann Mathieu in free agency.

    Bengals signed RG John Miller, formerly of the Bills, to a three-year, $16.5 million contract.

    A 2015 third-rounder by Buffalo, Miller started all 47 games he appeared in for the Bills in his four years there. An average starter at best, Miller figures to be penned in at right guard for Cincinnati between C Billy Price and recently extended RT Bobby Hart. LT Cordy Glenn and LG Clint Boling round out the rest of the Bengals' line.

    Jeff Heuerman TE, Denver Broncos
    Broncos re-signed TE Jeff Heuerman to a two-year, $9 million contract.

    A third-round pick in 2015, Heuerman's career has been derailed by injuries to this point. He's yet to play a full 16-game season and has missed 27-of-64 games. After catching 18 balls his first three years, Heuerman flashed with a 31-281-2 line last year before going on I.R. with broken ribs and a bruised lung after Week 12. Heuerman is big and athletic at 6'5/255. The Broncos let Matt LaCosse walk as a free agent, so Heuerman is currently atop the depth chart.

    Kendall Lamm T, Cleveland Browns

    His deal is reportedly worth over $7 million. Lamm drew a career-high 13 starts at right tackle for Houston last season, grading well in pass protection over his 859 offensive snaps. The undrafted Appalachian State alum will provide depth behind starters Chris Hubbard and Greg Robinson.

    J.J. Nelson WR, Oakland Raiders
    Raiders signed WR J.J. Nelson, formerly of the Cardinals.

    The Raiders have overhauled their receiving corps this offseason, bringing in Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and now Nelson while moving on from veteran Jordy Nelson. Listed at a diminutive 5'10"/160, the 2015 fifth-rounder delivered 11 touchdowns (10 receiving, one rushing) during his four-year run in Arizona. Though he never quite panned out with the Cardinals, Nelson has speed for days and could be an interesting gadget piece/home run threat for Derek Carr in Oakland. The UAB product turns 27 next month.

    Shaq Barrett LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Buccaneers signed OLB Shaq Barrett, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year, $5 million contract.

    Barrett also drew interest from Cincinnati prior to linking up with the Bucs. The 26-year-old performed well when called upon last year (28 tackles, three sacks over 275 defensive snaps) but played sparingly behind stud pass-rushers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb in the Mile High City. He's a nice fit for Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme in Tampa.

    Titans trade for Ryan Tannehill
    Posted by Josh Alper on March 15, 2019, 2:48 PM EDT
    Getty Images

    The Dolphins have yet to add a quarterback to their roster for the 2019 season, but they have now parted ways with their starter from 2018.

    The agents for Ryan Tannehill announced on Friday afternoon that their client has been traded to the Titans. They also announced that he’s signed a new one-year deal that presumably cuts his salary down from the $18.725 million he was due to make under the terms of his contract with the Dolphins.

    While the agents announced the trade, there’s been no word about the compensation headed back to Miami.

    Tannehill’s new contract presumably cements his status as the No. 2 behind Marcus Mariota as well. Given Mariota’s injury history, though, it would not come as a surprise if he makes some starts during the 2019 season. Mariota missed three games last year and has missed at least one game in all four of his NFL seasons.

    With Tannehill off the roster, Jake Rudock and David Fales are the only quarterbacks under contract with the Dolphins.

    UPDATE 2:49 p.m. ET: According to multiple reports, the Titans are sending a 2020 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick to Miami for Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick.

    UPDATE 2:52 p.m. ET: Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Tannehill will make a fully guaranteed $7 million salary that can rise above $12 million if incentives, some of which are tied to playing time, are reached.

    Josh Mauro DL, Oakland Raiders
    Raiders signed DL Josh Mauro, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

    He'll earn a $900,000 base salary to go with a $400,000 signing bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus. The 28-year-old spent last year with the Giants, compiling 28 tackles and one sack over 270 defensive snaps. The Raiders are Mauro's third team in as many years.

    Eagles re-signed CB Ronald Darby to a one-year, $8.5 million contract.

    Darby will rehab his value in Philly after November ACL surgery. It's a a good deal for both sides, as Darby was a top-40 corner at PFF before going down last year. Darby is questionable for training camp, but the Eagles are obviously confident in his medicals. He'll be 10 months removed from surgery for Week 1.

    Raheem Mostert RB, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers re-signed RB Raheem Mostert to a three-year contract.

    The 49ers originally gave Mostert, who was a restricted free agent, an original-round tender, but the two sides ended up agreeing to a long-term deal. It is possible Mostert garnered some interest after exploding for 261 yards and a touchdown on just 34 carries (7.7 YPC) last season. Unfortunately for him, he is returning to a depth chart topped by newly-signed Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, and Matt Breida. Unless one of those guys is moved, Mostert will likely have to make his contributions on special teams.

    This is a reunion for Pierre, who started his career playing for Giants DC James Bettcher in Arizona. Like during his time with the Cardinals, Pierre should serve as rotational depth if he cracks the final roster.

    Acquired off waivers from the Saints last August, Harris missed the beginning of the season due to injury, but he ended up appearing in 10 games as mostly a special teams contributor. He should return to a similar role this season if he cracks the final roster.
