  Panthers | Two Panthers set free    Fri Feb 12, 08:59 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery and SS Roman Harper's contracts voided Thursday, Feb. 11, and it's unclear if either will continue playing. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman added three voidable years on the contracts for Harper and Cotchery when he signed them two years ago to spread out their bonus money and lessen the salary cap hit.

Footballguys view: The Panthers will carry a combined $2.25 million in dead money for Harper and Cotchery on the 2016 books. We could see both veterans land somewhere else, but don't expect the market to be white-hot for their services.

  Titans | Eric Berry could be FA option    Thu Feb 11, 08:24 PM

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent SS Eric Berry could be a top target for the Tennessee Titans if he hits the free-agent market this offseason.

Footballguys view: We think Berry stays with the Chiefs, but money talks. If the veteran safety makes it to the open market, there will be more than a few teams interested in adding him.

  Bengals | Reggie Nelson could return    Thu Feb 11, 08:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent FS Reggie Nelson is expected to be one of the players the team tries to re-sign this offseason.

Footballguys view: Nelson can make plays against the run, and he's not afraid to mix it up close to the line of scrimmage. We feel confident the Bengals will keep him around in 2016 and beyond.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh may pursue Eric Weddle    Thu Feb 11, 07:33 PM

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent SS Eric Weddle is expected to receive interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason.

Footballguys view: Weddle should be a hot commodity. The Steelers will definitely have competition for his services.

  NFL | Rashard Robinson drawing interest    Thu Feb 11, 01:32 AM

Former Louisiana State CB Rashard Robinson has been drawing a lot of interest and intrigue from NFL executives. He is expected to be measured over 6-feet-2 inches and run at the 40-yard dash in the 4.3-4.4 range at the NFL Scouting Combine. He has also been invited to participate in LSU's pro day.

Footballguys view: Robinson's issues include him having to leave LSU once and getting suspended indefinitely in 2014 at Texas A&M. If a team is going to roll the dice on him, they will need to know he can handle the work off the field as well as on it.

  Cowboys | Jalen Ramsey is tops for Dallas    Thu Feb 11, 01:29 AM

Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey is the team's top player on the board heading into the 2016 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's a tad early to lock that down, but they do need help in the secondary. Despite rumors to the contrary, we don't expect a quarterback early though.

  Raiders | Nate Allen cut    Tue Feb 9, 05:06 PM

Oakland Raiders FS Nate Allen was released Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: Things change quickly around here. It was only last year that Allen signed a four-year, $23 million contract with the Raiders. He only appeared in five games as knee issues knocked his season off track. This move by the Raiders frees up $5 million in cap space.

  Titans | Michael Griffin released    Tue Feb 9, 12:28 PM

Tennessee Titans FS Michael Griffin was released Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: A move that was expected for two-fold. First, Griffin isn't the same player he used to be and his play has been declining for quite some time. Second, the move saves $6.5 million for the Titans in cap space. He may not get a long-term deal, but there should be a few teams interested in adding Griffin for veteran help.

  Bengals | Cincinnati adds two to roster    Mon Feb 8, 11:24 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agents OT Darryl Baldwin and CB Chykie Brown Monday, Feb. 8.

  Falcons | Two defenders released    Mon Feb 8, 03:07 PM

Atlanta Falcons SS William Moore and LB Justin Durant were released Monday, Feb. 8.

Footballguys view: Durant was an ineffective starter for the Falcons in 12 games this past season. The move creates a little over $2 million in cap space for the Falcons. Moore has the ability to be a playmaker, but he's missed 29 games (including five in 2015) over the past five years. There's $3.3 million in dead money remaining for Moore, but the Falcons did free up around $3 million with this transaction.

  Chiefs | Eric Berry a top priority    Sat Feb 6, 11:41 AM

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent SS Eric Berry is an important player to the team, and they will do everything they can in order to re-sign him, according to team chairman Clark Hunt.

Footballguys view: Berry beat cancer on his way back to the field in 2015. He's a player we can all cheer for, regardless of team affiliation. It's a wise move for the Chiefs to lock him up to a long-term deal.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders won't face Josh Norman    Fri Feb 5, 12:53 PM

Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman said he doesn't expect to line up at all against Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders in Super Bowl 50. Norman is expected to cover Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas instead.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a better matchup for Norman because of his uncanny ability to win at the catch point. Thomas has been struggling with drops lately, and Norman's disruption and true plays on the ball in flight will make it even harder to contend. Sanders is better at running crisp routes and creating separation, and he's likely to be the cornerstone of the Broncos passing offense on Sunday.

  Saints | Brandon Browner to be released    Fri Feb 5, 12:12 PM

Updating a previous item, New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner will be released by the team, according to sources. By league rules the Saints can't cut him until after the Super Bowl. Browner will cost $6.3 million against the salary cap in 2016 and is due $5 million in salary and bonuses, including $2.75 million fully guaranteed. New Orleans will save $950,000 in cap space and $2.25 million in cash if they wait until after March 9 to release him. Browner was flagged for 24 penalties (21 accepted) this year, which was the most by any player in a season since at least 2001.

Footballguys view: Browner was maybe the signature player in a pass defense that threatened to break records for futility in 2015. The Saints defense has a long way to go to get back to respectability when they improve by releasing high dollar signings.

  Bengals | Darqueze Dennard should be ready    Thu Feb 4, 07:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals CB Darqueze Dennard (shoulder) should be ready for the start of training camp this offseason.

Footballguys view: Dennard is recovering from a torn labrum he suffered in late November. The second-year corner played a part-time role on defense, but he was a big contributor on special teams. Expect the team to limit him this offseason, and perhaps ease him back in at the start of camp.

Denver Broncos Ss T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) and OG Louis Vasquez (knee) all practiced Wednesday, Feb. 3, and head coach Gary Kubiak expects all three to play in Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers. Ward only slightly favored his ankle while running and Stewart was running well without limitations.

Footballguys view: You're likely going to have to knock these guys out and pull them off the field. It's the Super Bowl, they'll play.

  Broncos | T.J. Ward, Darian Stewart will practice    Tue Feb 2, 02:28 PM

Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward (ankle) and FS Darian Stewart (knee) will both practice Wednesday, Feb. 3, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Ward and Stewart are two critical players for the Broncos defense. They'll have to stay disciplined when asked to cover against Cam Newton and the high-powered Panthers offense. Ward may even be asked to "spy" Newton from time to time.

  Steelers | Brandon Boykin could return    Mon Feb 1, 07:48 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent CB Brandon Boykin could re-sign with the Steelers if they offered the right deal.

Footballguys view: Boykin would have to agree to a good price in order to stay with the Steelers. The team gave up a fifth-round pick (2016) in order to snag Boykin away from the Eagles, and he seemed to get more comfortable with the team as the season went on. The cornerback market is going to be overflowing with talent, so the Steelers will have plenty of options if Boykin doesn't stay.

  Rams | Key defenders looking at free agency    Mon Feb 1, 03:45 PM

St. Louis Rams DT Nick Fairley, DE William Hayes, SS Mark Barron, DE Eugene Sims, FS Rodney McLeod and CBs Trumaine Johnson and Janoris Jenkins will enter free agency this offseason if they are not re-signed. McLeod is a restricted free agent while the rest are unrestricted free agents.

Footballguys view: According to OverTheCap.com, the Rams are set to have $32 million in cap space. That's a lot of money to be active in free agency, but it may not be enough to keep everyone listed above.

Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward (ankle) and FS Darian Stewart (knee) expect to play in Super Bowl 50 even though they are dealing with injuries. Both players are currently listed as questionable for the game.

Footballguys view: No question both of these players will play in Super Bowl 50. The only question is; how effective will they be dealing with these injuries?

  Dolphins | Adam Jones, Reggie Nelson may be targets    Sat Jan 30, 11:22 AM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent CB Adam Jones and FS Reggie Nelson could receive interest from the Miami Dolphins this offseason since defensive coordinator Vance Joseph worked with them when he was part of the Bengals.

Footballguys view: We're expecting the Dolphins to be much improved on both sides of the ball. However, they're going to have to get creative with salaries if they want to even be a little bit active in free agency. As of right now (according to OverTheCap.com), the Dolphins only have $2.6 million in cap space. That number will change with player cuts and potential contract restructures.

Carolina Panthers SS Roman Harper (eye) will be kept out of contact drills in practice this week as he recovers from a scratched eye that he suffered in the NFC Championship.

  Bills | Aaron Williams fully healthy    Tue Jan 26, 05:25 PM

Buffalo Bills FS Aaron Williams (neck) is ready to go for next season and could have played in the playoffs had the Bills made it that far, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are always tricky to recover from. Williams missed the final 11 games of the 2015 season, but he would have been ready for the playoffs if the Bills made it that far. We'll see how Williams responds next year when he starts taking hits again.

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward (ankle) re-aggravated an ankle sprain in the AFC Championship against the New England Patriots, but he should still play in Super Bowl 50, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We had a feeling that was a re-aggravation for Ward. He missed three games (Week 13-15) earlier in the season with this ankle problem. With two weeks to rest before Super Bowl 50, we feel confident that Ward will be able to start and be close enough to full strength.

Denver Broncos FS Darian Stewart (knee) suffered a slight medial collateral sprain Sunday, Jan. 24, and he's likely to play in the Super Bowl.
