Seahawks selected New Hampshire DT Jared Smith with the No. 241 overall pick.

Smith (6-foot-3 3/8, 302) recorded 40 tackles -- 10 for a loss -- four sacks and three kick blocks as a senior. He ran 5.08 at the Combine with a 1.79 ten-yard split and 28 bench reps. Lacking great athleticism and length, Smith projects as a rotational tackle once he learns to handle NFL speed. The Seahawks announced Smith as a guard, so it appears he'll be asked to switch to the other side of the ball.

Free agent CB Leon Hall (back) is visiting the Giants on Tuesday.

This is an odd one considering the Giants just spent the No. 10 overall pick on Eli Apple, gave Janoris Jenkins a huge deal, and also have Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the roster. A team can never have enough corners, however, and Hall remains one of the best slot defenders in the league. Hall is recovering from surgery to repair a "disc injury" in his back.

The Jaguars declined LT Luke Joeckel's fifth-year option.

This was expected after Joeckel struggled mightily his first three seasons, and lost his starting job to free agent pickup Kelvin Beachum. Joeckel has not shown the ability to handle himself in an NFL running game, and has been pulverized in pass protection. He was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 draft. The No. 1 pick in that draft -- Chiefs LT Eric Fisher -- has been only slightly better.

The Rams have exercised Tavon Austin's fifth-year team option for 2017.

They've done the same with MLB Alec Ogletree. Austin has never lived up to his billing as the No. 8 overall pick of the 2013 draft, but has steadily come on as a playmaker. He is dangerous with the ball in his hands. The option is worth over $12 million, something the Rams might very well decide is too much. Option years are guaranteed for injury only. Austin has been durable despite his pint size (5-foot-8, 176 pounds).

Redskins released CB Chris Culliver.

Culliver signed a "four-year, $32 million contract" last March, but tore his ACL and MCL in November. The remaining guarantees in his contract were voided by a Week 2 suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. Culliver was excellent in 2014, and is still only 27. He'll get a second chance, but will have to be healthy first. The Redskins used a third-round pick on Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller.

Colts waived C Khaled Holmes.

TE Cameron Clear, LS Forrest Hill and OT Mitchell Van Dyk have also been cut loose. Holmes was named the Colts' 2015 center out of camp, but was benched following a Week 7 neck injury. He was a backup for the remainder of the season. He wasn't going to be in the mix for the job this year after the Colts used their first-round pick on Alabama C Ryan Kelly.

The Titans have declined RG Chance Warmack's fifth-year team option for 2017.

Warmack has been durable, but had a sub-par 2015. He's still only 25 in September, however, and was much better in 2014. There's a good chance he'll be locked up beyond this season, but he isn't worth the $11.9 million he would have made under the option.

Steelers OLB James Harrison confirmed he will play in 2016.

Despite turning 38 this month, it was widely expected Harrison would decide to play another year. Harrison remained an effective pass rusher in a limited role last season, recording five sacks in 611 snaps. The Steelers need to develop their young pass rushers, but Harrison should once again provide a nice boost on the edge.

Lions exercised DE Ziggy Ansah's fifth-year option for 2017.

The option will be worth $12.7 million, a relative pittance for one of the most productive pass rushers in the game. Ansah has 30 sacks since entering the league as the No. 5 overall pick in 2013 including 14.5 last season. Despite the skyrocketing value of pass rushers, the Lions are reportedly not interested in signing Ansah to a long-term extension this offseason. If he puts up another double-digit sack campaign, that decision could end up looking foolish.

Vikings exercised CB Xavier Rhodes' fifth-year option for 2017.

Minnesota also activated DT Sharrif Floyd's option, but it appears as if they declined the option for WR/KR Cordarrelle Patterson. After an excellent 2014, Rhodes struggled with penalties and inconsistent play last season before coming on down the stretch. The Vikings will hope he takes a step forward this year. The option will pay Rhodes $8.026 million in 2017.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said DeMarco Murray "loved" the selection of Derrick Henry in the second round of the NFL draft.

Mularkey spoke with Murray immediately after the Titans made the pick. "I told DeMarco, ‘Nothing has changed since we made the trade for you. You’re still going to be the guy who is going to carry the load for us,'" Mularkey said. Considering how "well" Murray handled challenges to his workload in Philadelphia last season, there is no way this could go poorly.

Bears released OG Matt Slauson.

Slauson was owed just under $3 million this season. The move is surprising after Slauson finished No. 18 in Pro Football Focus' 2015 guard ratings, with a top-ten rank in pass protection. He allowed one sack in 16 starts, and just turned 30 in February. While the Bears are moving on with second-round pick Cody Whitehair at left guard, a good guard just hit the free agent market.
