Giants agreed to terms with DE/OLB O'Brien Schofield, formerly of the Seahawks, on a two-year, $8 million contract.
Schofield played outside linebacker in Arizona and Seattle during his first four seasons, but will likely play with his hand in the dirt in New York. He has 11.5 career sacks across 40 games. Schofield will also contribute on special teams.
Cardinals re-sign TE Jake Ballard to one-year contract.
The Cardinals failed to tender Ballard earlier this offseason. Ballard caught seven passes for 75 yards and two scores after signing with the Cardinals in November.
Cardinals re-sign DE Frostee Rucker to a two-year extension.
Rucker had one sack and 11 tackles for Arizona in limited playing time last season. With Darnell Dockett and Calais Campbell still in town, Rucker should be nothing more than a rotational player again in 2014.
49ers signed S Antoine Bethea to a four-year, $26 million contract.
Bethea will be asked to step in and fill hard-hitting Donte Whitner's shoes. He's definitely capable, but isn't a bone-crushing hitter and is coming off a down year that saw him struggle in coverage. Still, the 29-year-old Bethea is a nice complement to second-year FS Eric Reid.
Falcons agreed to terms with RG Jon Asamoah, formerly of the Chiefs.
Asamoah signing with the Falcons was another badly kept secret from the legal tampering period. The nasty guard with a mean streak reunites with ex-Chiefs GM Scott Pioli, who drafted Asamoah in Kansas City. The Falcons interior of the offensive line shapes up like this: LG Justin Blalock, C Joe Hawley, and RG Asamoah. GM Thomas Dimitroff still needs to find an offensive tackle.
Falcons agreed to terms with DT Paul Soliai, formerly of the Dolphins.
Terms are unavailable, but the Falcons are living up to their pledge of beefing up and getting tougher. The Falcons employ a 4-3 base, but are reportedly considering implementing more 3-4 looks this season. Soliai can man the nose in either alignment. Soliai played for Falcons DC Mike Nolan in Miami.
Bucs re-signed CB Danny Gorrer to a one-year contract.
Gorrer came off groin surgery to appear in seven games down the stretch last season. He'll compete for a roster spot at training camp.
Bills re-signed K Dan Carpenter.
Carpenter had trouble near the end of his Dolphins tenure, but converted 33-of-36 field-goal attempts last season. He was 4-of-6 from 50-plus yards. Carpenter owns a career 83.8 conversion rate.
