Updating previous reports, free-agent QB AJ McCarron (Texans) and S Jaylen Watkins (Chargers) officially signed with the Houston Texans Monday, March 30. Official terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: McCarron is going to resume his role as a backup to Deshaun Watson. We've seen what happens when he plays, so the Texans will not be in great shape if Watson has to miss time.

  Chargers | Jaylen Watkins appears to have torn ACL    Sun Aug 19, 02:48 PM

Los Angeles Chargers S Jaylen Watkins (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18, based on the initial diagnosis.

Footballguys view: The Chargers injury luck continues to be unthinkable. Watkins was getting some time with the first team and appeared to be a pleasant surprise thus far in camp. The team did draft versatile safety Derwin James in the first round, but their flexibility around him just took a hit.

  Chargers | Several options for FS job    Fri Aug 3, 08:07 PM

Los Angeles Chargers S Rayshawn Jenkins, SS Jahleel Addae, FS Desmond King and S Jaylen Watkins have all worked as the starting free safety during training camp, and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said the starting job is up for grabs.

Footballguys view: The team surprisingly did not try to retain Tre Boston after a very solid season in 2017. First-round pick Derwin James should end up at strong safety and be the IDP prize in this secondary.

  Eagles | Jaylen Watkins to be cut loose    Tue Feb 20, 10:07 AM

Philadelphia Eagles restricted free-agent CB Jaylen Watkins will not be tendered a contract, according to a source.

Footballguys view: As they're currently around $10 million over the cap, the Eagles are going to be extra cautious with how they spend their money. Watkins played 168 snaps on defense and 165 snaps on special teams in 2017. The 26-year-old can be a backup defensive back who can play both cornerback and safety.
