  Ravens | BAL could cut six    Mon Feb 20, 11:02 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil ($6 million), S Lardarius Webb ($5.5 million), CB Shareece Wright ($2.6 million) C Jeremy Zuttah ($2.3 million), CB Kyle Arrington ($2.1 million) and S Kendrick Lewis ($1.8 million) could be cut to create $20.3 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The Ravens only have $15 million in cap space at this time, and that ranks among the lowest in the league. Freeing up $20 million extra would put them around the middle of the pack in the NFL, and it would give them a fighting chance with some of the better free agents out there.

Footballguys view: Colbert said he is not sure if Golson lost any speed because of the foot injury he dealt with during his rookie season. The Steelers will not hesitate to select a cornerback in the 2017 NFL draft even if Golson is healthy.

  Rams | Trumaine Johnson could receive franchise tag    Sun Feb 19, 09:59 AM

The Los Angeles Rams are considering giving CB Trumaine Johnson the franchise tag for the second consecutive season.

Footballguys view: If the Rams did that, Johnson would be hitting the open markeet in 2018. If he receives the tag, he will make $16.74 million in 2017. The Rams have until March 1 to make a decision. Tagging him would give the team until July 15th to work out a new long-term contract.

  Bills | Stephon Gilmore seeking big pay day    Fri Feb 17, 10:21 AM

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent CB Stephon Gilmore is seeking top-five cornerback money in a long-term contract, according to sources.

Footballguys view: With only $19 million in cap space at this time, the Bills would have to make a few moves to get Gilmore the amount of money he wants per year. The highest-paid corner in terms of annual average salary is Josh Norman (Washington) as he makes $15 million per year. Gilmore would likely seek that amount, and if the Bills franchise-tagged Gilmore it would cost them a one-year fully guaranteed payment of $14.3 million.

  Jets | Darrelle Revis facing charges    Thu Feb 16, 09:16 PM

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis is facing pending charges of robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault as a result of his role in an altercation over the weekend, according to a police statement Thursday, Feb. 16.

Footballguys view: As if the Jets didn't already have a huge impetus to cut him loose. All the facts aren't in yet, of course, but with his contract plus the rapid decline in play this might just be one thing too many.

  Jaguars | No talks between Jags, Prince Amukamara    Wed Feb 15, 06:49 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars have not talked with the representatives for impending free-agent CB Prince Amukamara at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars had to be pleased with Amukamara's performance in 2016 as he played on a one-year, $5 million deal. Early speculation has the veteran corner earning around $8 to $9 million annually with a new deal. With over $59 million in cap space, the Jaguars should be able to keep Amukamara around if they want.

  Texans | A.J. Bouye unlikely to receive tag    Wed Feb 15, 05:26 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent CB A.J. Bouye likely will not receive the franchise tag this offseason because of the team's salary cap situation. The Texans are expected to have around $25 million in salary cap space available, but Bouye would be scheduled to receive a little more than $14 million in 2017 if he received the franchise tag.

Footballguys view: The Texans would like to keep Bouye around, but they'll have to work out a long-term deal with him. Bouye is one of the best free agents at any position set to hit the open market. He could land a deal that makes him a top-10 paid cornerback in the league with an annual average salary around $12 million or more.

  Broncos | Denver interested in re-signing Kayvon Webster    Wed Feb 15, 04:49 PM

The Denver Broncos have reached out to impending free-agent CB Kayvon Webster about the possibility of a new contract, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Webster has been a good reserve cornerback for the team, but he's been outstanding on special teams. He may want to stay with Denver, but Webster isn't going to get a larger role on defense in the Mile High City. Webster could move on to a team where he'll get more of a chance at playing time.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett's option should be exercised    Mon Feb 13, 06:59 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett likely will have his fifth-year option exercised this offseason.

Footballguys view: Verrett has yet to play a full 16-game season since the team selected him in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. He appeared in four games last year, and his season was cut short due to a knee injury that required surgery (left ACL). When healthy, Verrett has the ability to shut down some of the best receivers in the game.

  Patriots | Malcolm Butler staying put    Sun Feb 12, 01:41 PM

New England Patriots restricted free agent CB Malcolm Butler 'won't be going anywhere' this offseason as the team plans to place a first-round tender on him, according to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Footballguys view: That tender would pay Butler around $4 million in 2017. Other teams could offer Butler a contract, but the Patriots would have the right of refusal. They've got the third most cap space in the NFL, and the Patriots should work to get Butler signed to an agreement that keeps him on the team past just this year.

  Cowboys | Janoris Jenkins owned Dez Bryant     Thu Feb 9, 09:39 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was held to a combined two catches for 18 yards in two meetings with the New York Giants in 2016, and CB Janoris Jenkins said he knows all of Bryant's tendencies. 'Take away the slant and the dig, and when they get in 21 personnel and Dez is inside the number, you take away the corner post, he doesn't have nothing else,' Jenkins said.

Footballguys view: 'Jackrabbit' Jenkins was on fire this season, so him having Bryant's number isn't a shock. Bryant is going to have a more experienced quarterback in Dak Prescott's second year, so that could help but we would like to see him take his game in some new directions so that observant corners like Jenkins don't have a leg up.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan will have control of the 53-man roster, while general manager John Lynch will control the 90-man roster, free agency and draft moves.

Footballguys view: The two have to work together though, because Shanahan will need some influence on the larger roster to get his 53 guys. It's a whole new world for the 49ers with no Trent Baalke looming over the precedings like a Grim Reaper. We hope it works more smoothly.
