  Lions | Detroit add several UDFAs    Tue May 3, 02:59 AM

Undrafted free-agents CB Adairius Barnes (Louisiana Tech), WR Jace Billingsley (Eastern Oregon), WR Quinshad Davis (North Carolina), DL James DeLoach (Georgia), DE Deonte Gibson (Northwestern), WR Jay Lee (Baylor), CB Charles Washington (Fresno State), CB Ian Wells (Ohio), TE Cole Wick (Incarnate Word) and OL Andrew Zeller (Maryland) agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions Monday, May 2. WR Simms McElfresh (Appalachian State), LB Tyler Roberts (Troy) and DL Roger Stewart (Hillsdale) will also be with the team during rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Lee is the player to highlight here. He's got long arms and can snare passes away from his frame regularly. His game is comparable to that of Chris Chambers, former Dolphins standout wide receiver. In super deep dynasty leagues, we'll be keeping an eye on Lee.

New York Jets CB Dee Milliner's fifth-year option was declined Monday, May 2, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said it was primarily based on Milliner's injury history. If Milliner plays well in 2016, though, Maccagnan said both sides can try to negotiate a contract following the season.

  Redskins | Chris Culliver could be back    Mon May 2, 02:49 PM

Free-agent CB Chris Culliver (Redskins) could re-sign with the Washington Redskins, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. 'The door is not closed,' McCloughan said.

Footballguys view: Washington has reshaped their secondary this offseason. The addition of Josh Norman was a huge move, and he gives them a great starter opposite the underrated Bashaud Breeland.

  Ravens | Matt Elam's option declined    Mon May 2, 02:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam's fifth-year option was not picked up by the Ravens Monday, May 2. He will be a free agent after the 2016 season.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here given where Elam's pro career has the bench. The team benched him in 2014 and then he missed all of 2015 with a torn biceps. There's a chance that Elam doesn't make the Ravens final roster.

  Jets | Dee Milliner's option declined    Mon May 2, 12:43 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Dee Milliner did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Jets Monday, May 2.

Footballguys view: It's a swing and a miss for the Jets with their pick of Milliner. He will become a free agent after the 2016 season. Milliner missed 27 of 48 games due to surgeries on his Achilles' and wrist.

  49ers | Eric Reid's option picked up    Mon May 2, 10:45 AM

San Francisco 49ers FS Eric Reid had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Reid is a talented safety who can patrol a large area of the field. The 49ers may want to work out a new long-term deal with Reid in the near future. The option will pay $5.6 million in 2017.

  Vikings | Xavier Rhodes' option picked up    Mon May 2, 10:38 AM

Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, May 2, according to his agent Sunny Shah.

Footballguys view: The option will pay Rhodes just over $8 million in 2017. After a breakout season in 2014, Rhodes has proven that he's got the ability to make plays at the pro level. His tackles were up last year, but Rhodes saw his passes defensed number go down from 18 (2014) to 11 in 2015.

Footballguys view: Swain is a big power back who should transition to fullback at the pro level. If he makes the team, he could help blast open holes for Melvin Gordon.

  Bears | Antrel Rolle cut    Sun May 1, 04:53 PM

Chicago Bears FS Antrel Rolle was released Sunday, May 1, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The move frees up $2.7 million in cap space for the Bears. Injuries limited Rolle to only seven games in his only season in Chicago. Fourth-round pick Deon Bush or free-agent signee Omar Bolden will compete for Rolle's old spot.

  Redskins | Kendall Fuller should be ready soon    Sun May 1, 04:26 PM

Washington Redskins CB Kendall Fuller (knee) should be ready to participate during training camp and could receive clearance at some point during offseason workouts. He is expected to compete with CBs Will Blackmon, Quinton Dunbar and Deshazor Everett for the nickel back job.

Footballguys view: The rookie third-round pick has great awareness and that helps him overcome a clear lack of speed. He's a confident player who can make plays when he the ball is in front of him. The team should take it easy on the rookie as he deals with this knee.

Footballguys view: Wilson is a huge receiver with bottom of the barrel movement skills. Maybe the Patriots can make him into a viable receiving tight end.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Bercovici. In super deep dynasty leagues we are very interested in his development. It could be nothing, but he flashed the skill set (arm strength, athleticism, gun-slinger mentality) to perhaps develop into a player we'll be talking about more.

  Giants | Eli Apple to be tried everywhere    Fri Apr 29, 02:17 PM

New York Giants CB Eli Apple will be used everywhere, and the slot is a definite possibility, according to head coach Ben McAdoo. Apple hasn't played in the slot much in the past.

Footballguys view: It is a risk given his lack of experience, so the Giants have to get him up to speed quickly. Still, he will see a lot of time elsewhere, so he'll have plenty of impact while he gets up to speed in the slot.

  Ravens | Jimmy Smith out four to six weeks    Fri Apr 29, 11:16 AM

Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) will have screws removed from his surgically repaired right foot this week and will be out four to six weeks. He could miss spring workouts.

Footballguys view: For a veteran, missing the spring workouts is no big deal. If he starts missing the summer and training camp work - then we'll worry.

  Ravens | BAL tried trading up for Jalen Ramsey    Fri Apr 29, 09:38 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey was a target of the Baltimore Ravens, who tried to trade up to No. 4 via the Dallas Cowboys, but the Cowboys rejected the proposal. The Ravens were offering pick No. 6 overall and a fourth-round pick.

Footballguys view: We thought all along the Cowboys wanted to move back, but it turns out they were locked onto Ezekiel Elliot, the net effect of which was the Ravens missing out on their man. Like sands in an hour glass, these are the days of our (draft) lives.

  Saints | Vernon Hargreaves had Saints' interest    Fri Apr 29, 09:35 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Vernon Hargreaves III had significant interest from the New Orleans Saints, who picked at No. 12, one slot before he was selected.

Footballguys view: The Bucs addressed the defense with one of the better corners in the class and this should help solidify a defense that needs to get back on track quickly this year.

  Steelers | Artie Burns becomes a Steeler    Thu Apr 28, 10:56 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Miami CB Artie Burns with the 25th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The team wanted William Jackson III, but the Bengals stole him, so they made do with Burns. A raw prospect with tremendous speed, teams were very split on him. It may take time but he has the upside to be one of the best corners in the draft.

  Bengals | Cincy selects William Jackson    Thu Apr 28, 10:54 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Houston CB William Jackson III with the 24th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The Bengals needed to add some secondary talent and William Jackson III is a ballhawk who will generate picks. This selection also hosed the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, who desperately needed a corner and while Artie Burns is solid, Jackson would have been a better fit.

  Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey goes to Jags at No. 5    Thu Apr 28, 08:46 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey with the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Ramsey is a press ­cover corner with disruptive length who can throw off receivers at the line and on their routes. He can shut down vertical routes as well and this should help the Jaguars defend some good AFC passers.
