Redskins signed T Bruce Campbell to a one-year, $645,000 contract.
Redskins signed T/G Bruce Campbell to a one-year contract.
Why? A former Combine superstar, Campbell has made zero impact in the NFL unless you count up all the negatives. The Redskins were the only team on his trail. Campbell is still only 25, so perhaps the Skins believe their coaching staff can tap his theoretical potential. He has zero career starts.
Darren Sproles "wants to get released."
"I don't know where they would send me because I have no control over it, and I want to be able to pick," Sproles said. "I feel I should have more of an idea later on today." Sproles found out he was back on the trade block on Twitter. Apparently told of his impending release, he said goodbye to Saints fans on Twitter last Friday. New Orleans' handling of the situation has been clumsy, to put it mildly.
The Raiders are hosting free agent Andre Brown on Wednesday.
Nevermind a porous defense. Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie is going all-in on injury-plagued running backs in decline, first re-signing Darren McFadden and now targeting Brown to ostensibly form a "one-two punch" of sub-4.0 YPC backs. Brown, 27, has not drawn interest elsewhere during the free agency period.
Sources tell the Baltimore Sun that Steve Smith would have the Ravens near the top if his list if he gets cut by the Panthers.
The Sun had previously reported interest on the Ravens side. So we have what looks like a match here, and a very nice fit on the field as well. Smith is no longer a burner as he enters his age-35 season, but Joe Flacco desperately needs a playmaker after the catch and a reliable third-down option opposite Torrey Smith.
Panthers re-signed CB James Dockery.
Dockery was a restricted free agent. It's unclear if he signed for the "low" amount of $1.431 million, or something less. A reserve, injuries limited Dockery to five games last season. Dockery has made 24 career appearances, but just two starts.
Zach Miller is owed a $1 million roster bonus next Thursday.
The Seahawks were expected to ask Miller to take a pay cut on the $5.8 million he's owed in 2014 between salary and bonuses. If Jermichael Finley's medicals check out, that might not even be an option anymore. The Seahawks also have two talented youngsters in Like Willson and Anthony McCoy.
Seahawks released DE Chris Clemons.
The move frees up more than $7 million in cap space. Clemons made a successful 2013 return from his 2012 ACL tear, recording 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 14 games (11 starts). He "started" over both Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, who will now be leaned upon for more snaps. Clemons is entering his age-33 season, but could still help a team in a pass-rusher rotation. He'll inevitably be linked to ex-Seattle DC Gus Bradley in Jacksonville.
