  Bears | Alan Ball joins team    Fri Mar 27, 02:53 PM

Free-agent CB Alan Ball (Jaguars) signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears Friday, March 27. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ball, a seventh-round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2007, has started 22 of his 43 career starts over the last two years. He can excel in press-man coverage, and Ball will compete for playing time in the Bears new revamped defense.

  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.

  Vikings | Taylor Mays signs    Tue Mar 24, 05:59 PM

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.

  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.

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 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.

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.

  Jets | Jets close to signing Marcus Gilchrist    Thu Mar 12, 11:15 PM

Free-agent FS Marcus Gilchrist (Chargers) is finalizing a four-year deal with the New York Jets, and he is expected to sign Friday, March 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets have done an "extreme" makeover to their secondary this offseason. Gilchrist joins Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine as players added to the position. Gilchrist played over 900 defensive snaps in 2014 at multiple positions. He finished the season with 76 tackles, 1 interception, 1 sack and 2 forced fumbles. Gilchrist played 401 of those snaps in the slot, 306 at strong safety and 201 at free safety, and his position versatility will come in handy for the Jets.

  Texans | Rahim Moore signs    Thu Mar 12, 04:39 PM

Free-agent FS Rahim Moore (Broncos) agreed to a three-year deal worth $12 million with the Houston Texans Thursday, March 12.

  Raiders | Add Nate Allen    Thu Mar 12, 01:16 PM

The Oakland Raiders signed FS Nate Allen (Eagles) Thursday, March 12. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A move we'd label as curious here. Allen is regularly burned by opponents, and now the Raiders will have to deal with that defensively. He'll be in the backfield at free safety next to strong safety Charles Woodson.

  Texans | Closing in on a deal with Rahim Moore    Thu Mar 12, 11:57 AM

Free-agent FS Rahim Moore (Broncos) is closing in on a deal with the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Moore was arguably the second-best safety on the market behind Devin McCourty (Patriots). He plays with a lot of confidence, and Moore can roam the field looking to make plays in coverage and against the run.

  Buccaneers | Chris Conte agrees with Tampa    Thu Mar 12, 10:07 AM

Free-agent FS Chris Conte (Bears) agreed to a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Dashon Goldson is out, and Conte is likely in at free safety for the Bucs. He has two years experience playing under Lovie Smith from their days together with the Bears. If healthy, he's a decent starter in the secondary.

The Chicago Bears and free-agent FS Antrel Rolle (Giants) agreed to terms on a three-year, $11.25 million contract Wednesday, March 11, his agent confirmed. His contract calls for $5 million to be guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Rolle isn't quite the player he used to be, but he'll make some big plays here and there. The Bears get a veteran leader for the defense, but make no mistake about it...his skills are on the decline.

  Patriots | Devin McCourty back with Patriots    Sun Mar 8, 10:53 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent FS Devin McCourty has agreed to a five-year, $47.5 million deal to stay with the team.

Footballguys view: A huge move for the Patriots here. McCourty was the best free safety on the open market, and he's become one of the best in the game after converting from cornerback. This move means the Pats may not be able to keep cornerback Darrelle Revis. He's due a $12.5 million option bonus on Monday.

  Eagles | Interested in Devin McCourty     Sun Mar 8, 05:44 PM

Free-agent FS Devin McCourty (Patriots) is attracting interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, who just signed CB Byron Maxwell on Sunday, March 8.

Footballguys view: We told you they weren't done yet! The Eagles want to use the ton of cap space they freed up over the last week or so. Signing top CB Byron Maxwell is a start, but they still need another piece or two in the secondary. McCourty would be another top free agent, as many consider him the best free safety available on the open market.

Free-agent SS Da'Norris Searcy (Bills) was contacted by the Oakland Raiders Saturday, March 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders have to do something to fill the hole at safety since they released Tyvon Branch. Searcy should generate quite a bit of interest on the open market. He was rated as the third best free agent safety by Pro Football Focus for his play last season and the upside he has left at age 26.
