  Ravens | P.J. Williams to visit    Thu Mar 26, 07:59 AM

Florida State CB P.J. Williams will visit the Baltimore Ravens prior to next month's NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Williams is a cover corner who can play on an island, cover outside or from the slot,or come up and play man-press. He should go pretty high in the coming NFL draft.

  Packers | Kyle Sebetic signs    Wed Mar 25, 04:38 PM

Free-agent S Kyle Sebetic (Giants) signed an undisclosed deal with the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Sebetic was a rookie last year who spent a little bit of time on the Giants practice squad last season. At the University of Dayton, Sebetic was a four-year starter at cornerback, recording five interceptions, 18 pass breakups, and a forced fumble. He competed at the veteran combine last week, and the Packers must've liked what they saw.

Minnesota Vikings SS Taylor Mays re-signed to a one-year deal Tuesday, March 24. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Mays is reunited with Mike Zimmer here. During their time together with the Bengals, Zimmer used Mays as a hybrid linebacker/safety on defense. Mays brings an attitude to the Vikings defense as an "in the box" player.

  Saints | Jairus Byrd fully healthy    Mon Mar 23, 01:22 PM

New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) is fully recovered from a torn meniscus in his knee that caused him to sit out most of 2014, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.

Footballguys view: This news has to make the Saints happy. They paid a hefty price for him last offseason, then he was out for almost the entire year. Their defense will be immediately better with Byrd at full strength.

  Jaguars | Trae Waynes to visit    Sat Mar 21, 02:27 PM

Michigan State CB Trae Waynes is scheduled to meet with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Waynes is arguably the best corner in this draft class. He has the size/speed combination that could make him a shutdown corner at the pro level.

  Vikings | Taylor Mays leaves without deal    Sat Mar 21, 02:33 AM

Free-agent SS Taylor Mays (Bengals) left his visit with the Minnesota Vikings without a contract. Mays was scheduled to have dinner with team officials and check out the facilities.

Footballguys view: Mays is an in-the-box safety who has a nose for the ball. If added, Mays would help give the Vikings defense more swagger--but just don't ask him to cover.

  Panthers | Alan Ball has not agreed to terms     Fri Mar 20, 03:08 PM

  Dolphins | Louis Delmas says he'll be ready    Fri Mar 20, 02:15 PM

Miami Dolphins FS Louis Delmas (knee) said he'll definitely be ready for the start of the 2015 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last year.

Footballguys view: Delmas is a talented player, but man alive is he banged up a lot. The team would be wise to take it easy on the veteran as he comes back from yet another injury.

Free-agent CB Terence Newman (Bengals) has discussed contract figures with the Minnesota Vikings, but the sides are not close to a deal yet.

Footballguys view: Just give it time. Newman would be reunited (again) with Mike Zimmer if (when) he signs with the Vikings. They worked together in both Cincinnati and Dallas.

  Lions | P.J. Williams visits    Thu Mar 19, 02:00 PM

Florida State CB P.J. Williams met with the Detroit Lions Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: The Lions have a decent secondary but Williams is a solid cover corner with good recovery who can work the slot or outside. You can't have too many corners in today's NFL.

  Buccaneers | Sterling Moore agrees    Thu Mar 19, 01:35 PM

Free-agent CB Sterling Moore (Cowboys) agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 19, according to a source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Moore stepped in for the Cowboys last season when Morris Claiborne was hurt, starting nine games and playing nickel corner for Dallas. The Cowboys didn't tender him at all (he was technically a restricted free agent) so he became an unrestricted free agent and the Bucs were happy to give him a shot. If he can replicate his 2014, it could be a very nice upgrade for Tampa Bay.

  Panthers | Alan Ball signs with Carolina    Thu Mar 19, 11:00 AM

Free-agent CB Alan Ball (Jaguars) signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Carolina Panthers Thursday, March 19. The deal includes a $1 million signing bonus, a $950,000 salary, a $50,000 workout bonus and up to $500,000 in playing time incentives, according to a source.

Footballguys view: While it wasn't the biggest need for Carolina, it will help the defense keep things close over the next season and for a reasonable price.

  Chargers | Patrick Robinson signs with San Diego    Thu Mar 19, 10:55 AM

Free-agent CB Patrick Robinson (Saints) signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the San Diego Chargers Thursday, March 19. The deal includes a $1 million signing bonus, $1 million base salary ($250,000 guaranteed) and up to $1 million in playing time incentives.

Footballguys view: Making a position of strength stronger, the signing allows the Chargers to use three different corners who can play outside. A first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Robinson started out as the No. 2 cornerback, but struggled and was demoted. He did bounce back with solid play as a slot corner later on and might benefit by not having to start, instead rotating in as needed.

  Bengals | Brandon Ghee signs with Cincinnati    Thu Mar 19, 10:51 AM

Free-agent CB Brandon Ghee (Chargers) signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on an undisclosed contract Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Ghee may not even make the roster, as he will have to battle for a spot low on the depth chart. Picked in the third-round in 2010 by the Bengals, Ghee left as a free agent for San Diego last year but was cut in preseason. He then played six games with Tennessee before being released in early December with just one interception and three tackles.

  Saints | Keenan Lewis restructures    Thu Mar 19, 08:42 AM

New Orleans Saints CB Keenan Lewis restructured his deal to put the team $1.7 million under the salary cap. An additional $10.4 million of his contract has been guaranteed, according to a source. The Saints converted portions of his 2015 and 2016 base salaries into signing bonuses, dropping his 2015 base salary from $1.8 million to $850,000 and his 2016 base salary from $4.25 million to $2.7 million. His 2015 cap hit is $4,500,000.

  Vikings | Taylor Mays to visit    Wed Mar 18, 04:18 PM

Free-agent SS Taylor Mays (Bengals) is scheduled to have dinner with executives from the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, March 18, and will visit with the team Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Mays is an in-the-box safety who arrives at the ball-carrier with natural violence. The Vikings are looking for some more attitude on defense, and Mays would give them just that.

  Panthers | Will work out Trae Waynes    Wed Mar 18, 03:30 PM

Michigan State CB Trae Waynes said he is scheduled to have a private workout with the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Waynes is arguably the best cornerback in this draft. He's got the length at 6'1" to hang with taller receivers on downfield routes. Waynes does a good job of re-routing his man, and he's got the recovery speed to make up ground in a hurry.

  Patriots | Robert McClain signing    Wed Mar 18, 02:33 PM

Free-agent CB Robert McClain (Falcons) announced on Twitter that he is signing an undisclosed deal with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Patriots continue to rebuild their secondary here after losing both Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis in free agency. McClain has worked well as a nickel corner for the Falcons, but in New England he'll be able to compete for a starting job on the outside. He also brings special teams experience to the Patriots.

  Jets | Antonio Cromartie says he's healthy    Wed Mar 18, 01:35 PM

New York Jets CB Antonio Cromartie (hip) said he feels fine physically and can still play at a high level in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Jets. Cromartie wasn't himself in 2013, and the team decided to release him after that season. He went to Arizona last year, stayed healthy and got his career back on track. Cromartie is part of an impressive secondary the Jets have put together this offseason. He joins Darrelle Revis, Buster Skrine and Marcus Gilchrist to give the Jets quite the collection of corners.

  Lions | Rashean Mathis agrees to terms    Wed Mar 18, 01:18 PM

Free-agent CB Rashean Mathis (Lions) has agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions Wednesday, March 18, on a two-year deal worth $3.5 million, according to a source. He is scheduled to make $2 million in 2015.

Footballguys view: Mathis was arguably the best corner remaining on the open market. The Lions needed to find a starter opposite Darius Slay, and they felt Mathis was worth keeping around. Mathis won't count that much against the cap, and he should be able to provide the team with quality play. Last year, Mathis finished the season as the 12th-best corner in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.

  Patriots | Bradley Fletcher agrees with Pats    Wed Mar 18, 10:52 AM

Updating an earlier report, free-agent CB Bradley Fletcher (Eagles) agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 18. The deal is worth a maximum of $2.5 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have some serious work to do in their secondary after losing both Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner in free agency. Fletcher was targeted often by opponents during his time with the Eagles. He's got a nose for the ball, but he'll gamble to take chances--and he'll get burned. He'll compete for a starting job with the Patriots.

  Vikings | Terence Newman visits    Tue Mar 17, 02:38 PM

Free-agent CB Terence Newman (Bengals) visited with the Minnesota Vikings Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Newman played under Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer during their days with the Bengals. They were also together with the Cowboys early in Newman's career. Newman had been considering retirement, but some team could sign him for veteran depth. Reuniting with Zimmer makes a lot of sense.

Free-agent CB Terence Newman (Bengals) is scheduled to visit with the New England Patriots Tuesday, March 17.

Footballguys view: The Patriots need to rebuild their secondary after the departure of both Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. Newman could be a short-term answer. The veteran corner has started 174 career games, and he was a starter last year in Cincinnati. He has been considering retirement, but some team may decide to make an offer for veteran depth.

  Redskins | Still interested in Taylor Mays    Tue Mar 17, 02:28 AM

Free-agent SS Taylor Mays (Bengals) has interest in the Washington Redskins, and the Redskins are trying to work out a visit in the coming days.

Footballguys view: Mays is an in-the-box safety who arrives at the ball-carrier with natural violence. Don't ask him to cover, but if used the right way he can be an effective player.

  Browns | Tramon Williams signs     Mon Mar 16, 02:56 PM

Free-agent CB Tramon Williams (Packers) signed a three-year deal worth $21 million Monday, March 16, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This signing shows a lack of confidence (for good reason) in last year's first-round pick CB Justin Gilbert. Williams isn't quite the player he used to be, but he's still a solid corner. He'll start opposite Joe Haden to give the Browns a potent duo at the position.

  Ravens | Had interest in Perrish Cox    Mon Mar 16, 01:26 PM

Tennessee Titans CB Perrish Cox received interest from the Baltimore Ravens when he was a free agent, but the Ravens were not able to offer more than the Titans, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Not a surprise considering Cox has turned into a decent corner. The Titans are looking to upgrade their defense under the guidance of assistant head coach Dick LeBeau.

Free-agent SS Jeron Johnson (Seahawks) has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins on a two-year deal worth $4 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Johnson is an in-the-box safety who can work well as a run-defender. He was a backup in Seattle behind Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, but Washington might count on him as a starter.

  Panthers | Kurt Coleman signs with Carolina    Mon Mar 16, 11:26 AM

Updating an earlier report, free-agent SS Kurt Coleman (Chiefs) signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: A smart move for the Panthers here. Coleman has familiarity with Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott from their time together with the Eagles. Capable of playing both safety spots, Coleman is a valuable reserve with starter's upside.

Free-agent CB Perrish Cox (49ers) signed with the Tennessee Titans Saturday, March 14.
