  Lions | Kerryon Johnson done in Detroit    Wed May 5, 07:53 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson was waived Wednesday, May 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here. A second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Johnson struggled to stay healthy and impress with the Lions. He fell to the no.3 back last year and now gets a chance at a fresh start. The Lions move forward with D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams as their top two backs.

  Titans | Brian Hill joining Tennessee    Wed May 5, 07:14 PM

Free-agent RB Brian Hill (Falcons) signed with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, May 5, according to his agents. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Hill has spent most of his career with the Falcons but now is going to Tennessee to provide veteran depth behind Derrick Henry. The all-purpose back from the University of Wyoming has flashed a bit here and there, but he's best used as a reserve or change-of-pace back you can use in space. It's a solid move for the Titans.

  Chiefs | Chris Finke headed to Kansas City    Wed May 5, 02:43 PM

Free-agent WR Chris Finke reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday, May 5. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Finke originally came into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame last year, and he first signed with the 49ers. He's a gritty player who is tough over the middle as a slot receiver who earns his quarterback's trust. Finke also worked as the primary return man for the Fighting Irish which adds to his value with the Chiefs. He'll try to make the 53-man roster behind guys like Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson.

  Lions | Darren Fells set to join Detroit    Wed May 5, 02:30 PM

Free-agent TE Darren Fells (Texans) reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, May 5.

Footballguys view: With Josh Hill retiring, the Lions needed to add more depth to the tight end room. Fells is a huge target and can be a presence in the red zone. His size also makes him a fine blocker when tasked with that duty. Fells should work in as the primary backup to starter T.J. Hockenson in 2021.

  Patriots | Sony Michel's roster spot in danger?    Wed May 5, 01:06 PM

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel could potentially lose his roster spot to fourth-round rookie Rhamondre Stevenson because the latter is more likely to be a factor on special teams, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have a jam-packed backfield with Damien Harris, James White and Michel already on the roster. Michel, a first-round pick in 2018, saw his numbers go down in 2020 as he only appeared in eight games. He's got to stay healthy and impress if he wants to secure his spot on the 53-man roster. It sounds outlandish to hear that his roster spot may be in jeopardy but things change quickly around here and anything can happen.

  Cardinals | Rondale Moore hard to corral when healthy    Tue May 4, 11:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Rondale Moore reported 37 missed forced tackles on receptions as a freshman at Purdue in 2018 - the only college season in which he played more than four games - according to Pro Football Focus. The 37 missed forced tackles were the most by a receiver from a Power Five conference since 2014.

Footballguys view: Moore is one of the most explosive players in this draft class at any position. He's a big play waiting to happen and reminds some in the scouting community of Tyler Lockett. Moore is tough to get a handle on and he doesn't tip off where he's going with his route. A running back after the catch, Moore wins with speed and ankle-breaking quickness.

  Dolphins | Jaylen Waddle comfortable with Tua Tagovailoa    Tue May 4, 09:38 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 74 percent of his passes, averaged 16.6 yards per completion and compiled a 137.9 passer rating when he targeted Jaylen Waddle at the University of Alabama, per Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Waddle can get the most out of Tagovailoa. As a rookie in 2020, Tagovailoa flashed a bit but generally struggled a a passer. Rather than give up on him, the Dolphins know they need better weapons around him and that's why they added Waddle in the 2021 NFL draft. Waddle can fly down the field and takes the top off the defense. Expect his chemistry with Tagovailoa to pick up where they left off.

  Bears | Chicago adding Damiere Byrd    Tue May 4, 06:36 PM

Free-agent WR Damiere Byrd (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, May 4, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Byrd is coming off a career high in 2020 with the Patriots. Last year, Byrd had 47 catches for 604 yards and one touchdown. That's not outstanding but it's the best of his career and now he is looking to give the Bears veteran depth. The team is thin at the wide receiver position behind Allen Robinson, Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller, so we'll see how much of a role Byrd can have with his new team in 2021.

  Saints | New Orleans adding Stevie Scott    Tue May 4, 04:38 PM

Undrafted free-agent RB Stevie Scott (Indiana) reportedly agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Scott is a big-bodied running back with an nose for the end zone (30 rushing touchdowns in three seasons). He's a grinder who won't break off big runs but he is intent between the tackles.

  Bears | Chicago lands CJ Marable    Tue May 4, 03:11 PM

Undrafted free-agent RB CJ Marable (Coastal Carolina) reportedly agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears on Sunday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Marable is a compact runner who can make big plays in open space. He's more than a scatback, but he does have that type of skill set with quickness and agility in the backfield. Marable can also make plays as a receiver out of the backfield. He's an intriguing prospect for Fantasy GMs in crazy deep dynasty formats.
