Dolphins | Ndamukong Suh no longer a Dolphin Wed Mar 14, 03:34 PM
Miami Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh is being released Wednesday, March 14, as the Dolphins could not find a trade partner prior to the start of the new league year.
|Footballguys view: This move was expected. Suh is still a disruptive player but his price tag was just too high for the Dolphins...or for any team interested in trading for him. Expect Suh to have several suitors on the open market.|

Seahawks | Seattle will host Ed Dickson Wed Mar 14, 03:27 PM
Free-agent TE Ed Dickson (Panthers) will visit the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: Going from Jimmy Graham to Ed Dickson is not an upgrade. He played college ball in the region (Oregon) but has mostly been a blocker during his pro career.|

The Denver Broncos has received some trade interest regarding QB Trevor Siemian and will continue to shop him to other teams, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: The Falcons and maybe the Bills should be in contact with the Broncos. Siemian is not a good starter, but he could be a serviceable backup for years to come.|

Lions | Eric Ebron released Wed Mar 14, 03:18 PM
Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was released Wednesday, March 14.
|Footballguys view: Ebron will forever be remembered by Lions fans as the player they selected instead of Odell Beckham Jr....or Aaron Donald. He's a big-bodied pass-catcher who can rip the seam, but Ebron has never played up to his potential...not even close. He'll have a bit of interest if he wants to sign a 'prove it' deal.|

NFL | Orlando Brown improves workout numbers Wed Mar 14, 02:54 PM
Oklahoma OT Orlando Brown Jr. ran the 40-yard dash in 5.65 seconds at his Pro Day Wednesday, March 14, which was better than his 5.77-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. He also completed 18 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press which is better than 14 repetitions he posted at the combine. Brown has lost five pounds since the combine.
|Footballguys view: Brown's numbers in the pre-draft process have hurt his draft stock. Once seen as a potential first-round pick, Brown may stay on the board until the second or third day of the draft.|

Free-agent LB Trent Murphy (Redskins) is signing a three-year deal worth up to $30 million with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Trent Murphy player page
Texans | Tyrann Mathieu an option for Houston? Wed Mar 14, 02:47 PM
Free-agent FS Tyrann Mathieu (Cardinals) is expected to receive interest from the Houston Texans.
|Footballguys view: It's all about positionless football in the NFL today. Finding players, like Mathieu, that can play all over the field is a boost for teams. The Cardinals wanted Mathieu to take a pay cut or restructure his deal but he refused and now should find a robust market for his services.|

Saints | Patrick Robinson to sign with Saints Wed Mar 14, 02:30 PM
Free-agent CB Patrick Robinson (Eagles) is expected to sign a four-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. Financial terms were not disclosed.
|Footballguys view: The Eagles had been trying to get a deal done with Robinson, but they don't have a great salary cap situation after winning the Super Bowl. Robinson is a fine addition for the Saints secondary, and he'll get to work alongside a young playmaker in Marshon Lattimore.|

Chiefs | Jarvis Jenkins back with Chiefs Wed Mar 14, 02:25 PM
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent DE Jarvis Jenkins signed a new contract with the Chiefs Wednesday, March 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Jaguars | Austin Seferian-Jenkins to meet with JAX Wed Mar 14, 02:13 PM
New York Jets impending free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins said he plans to meet with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
|Footballguys view: Seferian-Jenkins has more than a few teams interested in his services. He's set to meet with the Seahawks, and that team may be his most likely destination as Washington is where he was born, raised and played college ball for the Huskies.|

Browns | Joe Thomas retiring Wed Mar 14, 02:04 PM
Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas is retiring from the NFL after 11 seasons with the Browns.
|Footballguys view: An eight-time All Pro, Thomas is bound for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He made 167 consecutive starts for the Browns before tearing his triceps last October. It's sad to see him walk away from the game now that the Browns may actually be decent under new GM John Dorsey. Expect him to wind up on your TV as an analyst.|

Updating a previous report, free-agent CB Tramaine Brock (Vikings) agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Denver Broncos Wednesday, March 14.
|Footballguys view: Brock went from playing 1,101 snaps for the 49ers in 2016 to getting cut in 2017 to getting picked up by the Seahawks then getting traded to the Vikings last year (and only playing 51 snaps). The Broncos needed help at the position after trading Aqib Talib to the Rams earlier this month.|

Ravens | Jeremy Maclin done in Baltimore Wed Mar 14, 01:24 PM
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin is being released Wednesday, March 14, according to a source. He would have been a salary cap hit of $7.5 million.
|Footballguys view: The move saves $5 million in cap space for the Ravens...and this move was expected after the Ravens signed both Ryan Grant and John Brown in free agency. Over the last two seasons, Maclin has been slowed due to age and injuries. He may not have that many suitors on the open market.|

Seahawks | Austin Seferian-Jenkins visiting Seattle Wed Mar 14, 01:15 PM
Free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Jets) will make his first visit to the Seattle Seahawks.
|Footballguys view: Seferian-Jenkins was born and raised in Washington state, so he'd be going home if he signed with Seattle. He also played his college ball for the University of Washington. The Seahawks could use help at the position with Jimmy Graham (Packers) moving on in free agency.|

Panthers | Julius Peppers staying with Carolina Wed Mar 14, 01:07 PM
Free-agent DE Julius Peppers (Panthers) plans to re-sign to a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
|Footballguys view: It's been an amazing career for Peppers and he's not really showing many signs of age. The former first-round pick (2002) has only missed a couple of games during his pro career. He played almost 500 snaps last year and racked up 11.0 sacks. Recovering from shoulder surgery, Peppers is likely to be limited during OTAs and minicamp. He'll be ready Week 1 for his role as a pass-rusher.|

Seahawks | Jordy Nelson to visit Seahawks Wed Mar 14, 12:27 PM
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: Seattle has lost both Paul Richarson and Jimmy Graham in free agency. They could use a valuable weapon like Nelson in the passing game.|

Saints | Jordy Nelson to visit Saints Wed Mar 14, 12:19 PM
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: The Saints did not get Jimmy Graham in free agency, so their receiving weapons don't get a boost there. They could get that much needed boost with a consistent pass-catcher like Nelson.|

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, March 14.
