Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') has been training 'in hopes of taking the field with his teammates by the start of training camp, if not sooner,' according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. He hasn't played a single down since the 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Who knows what Galette has to offer at this point. If healthy (a BIG if), Galette could work as a part-time pass-rusher for Washington.

The New York Jets reportedly pulled their free-agent offer to LB Dont'a Hightower prior to his signing with the New England Patriots due to concerns over his physical, according to NFL.Network's Albert Breer.

Footballguys view: The Patriots know him better than anybody, and they had no problem with any sort of physical condition. Sounds like Jets damage control here after missing out on yet another free agent.

Free-agent LB Dont'a Hightower (Patriots) re-signed with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 15, on a four-year deal worth $43.5 million, according to Hightower's agent, SportsTrust Advisors. He will receive $19 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The Patriots let Hightower explore his options on the open market, and those weren't that exciting for the veteran linebacker. With the Hightower move, it's yet another sign that the best is getting even better and leaving AFC competitors in the dust this offseason.

Free-agent LB Dont'a Hightower (Patriots) has narrowed his choices down to the New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots.

  Jets | Dont'a Hightower big target for Jets    Tue Mar 14, 04:41 PM

Free-agent LB Dont'a Hightower (Patriots) is of great interest to the New York Jets. In fact, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com says the Jets' interest in Hightower 'cannot be overstated.'

Footballguys view: Hightower might have misread the market entering free agency. He could return to the Patriots for a rather 'team friendly' deal, and it's certainly not for the money he expected to get. The Jets could be used for leverage here, but Hightower would likely much rather just stay with the best organization in football.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware retires    Mon Mar 13, 03:55 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware announced his retirement Monday, March 13.

Footballguys view: We'll see Ware in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot he's eligible for. A first-round pick in the 2005 NFL draft, Ware ends his pro career with 138.5 sacks. The Broncos will miss his leadership inside that locker room, and the Cowboys miss a chance on bringing him back.

Free-agent LB Dont'a Hightower (Patriots) is expected to re-sign with the New England Patriots after he left visits with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: The Patriots let Hightower explore the open market, and the price tags weren't as high as he'd hoped. He could return to the Patriots on a fair deal, but Hightower is not going to break the bank like he wanted.

The New England Patriots are still 'very interested' in bringing back free-agent LB Dont'a Hightower, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Footballguys view: The Patriots let Hightower explore the open market to set his price tag. A risky move initially, it looks like that's paying off for the Pats as Hightower has not gotten much concrete interest. He could always return for a right price.

Footballguys view: Who says you can never go home? Peppers is back where he began his pro career as the no.2 overall pick in the 2002 NFL draft. He's not the same player he used to be, but Peppers can definitely contribute as a part-time pass-rusher.
