Titans signed RT Michael Oher to a four-year, $20 million contract with $9.5 million guaranteed.

We have to believe Ozzie Newsome is chuckling at this one. Oher, 28 in May, never got better during his five-year stint in Baltimore, struggling mightily in spot duty at left tackle and performing at a well-below-average clip on the right side. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 68 tackle in 2013, among 76 qualifiers. Oher was a dead-last 76th in run blocking with eight sacks allowed. He'll replace David Stewart at right tackle in Nashville. For the second consecutive offseason, the Titans are having a head-scratching free agency period under scuffling GM Ruston Webster. (At least they "landed" Charlie Whitehurst.)

Jaguars signed G/C Brandon Linder to a five-year, $51.7 million extension through 2022.

It's one of the richest deals ever for a center. It includes $24 million guaranteed. It's actually been unclear if Linder would play center or guard in 2017, but the tea leaves have been suggesting center, where Linder excelled in 2016. Linder played right guard in 2014-15. The No. 93 overall pick of the 2014 draft had been heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

Dolphins placed LB Koa Misi on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Just Tuesday, coach Adam Gase said he was "confident" Misi would "play football again," but it won't be for the Dolphins in 2017. If Misi does get healthy, he would have to be released with an injury settlement. Now 30, Misi played just three games last season before undergoing surgery. Things aren't looking bright for his NFL future. The Dolphins' top three linebackers are Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons and second-rounder Raekwon McMillan.

Saints placed WLB Dannell Ellerbe on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Ellerbe will released with an injury settlement once he's healthy. He hopes to be cleared in three weeks. Headed into his age-32 campaign, Ellerbe's recent career has been wrecked by injury. He's made just 16 appearances since 2013. His phone isn't going to be ringing off the hook, despite what his agent is telling some media members.

Cowboys signed RT La'El Collins to a two-year, $15.4 million extension through 2019.

Collins was headed for restricted free agency next season. The new deal is a win-win. For Collins, it gets him up to the first-round money he should have gotten in 2015. For Dallas, it buys out a year of free agency. Collins can still hit the market when he's 27. Replacing Doug Free at right tackle, Collins was limited to three games by injury last season, but showed promise as a rookie in 2015.

Speaking Tuesday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Kelvin Benjamin is "where he needs to be" weight-wise.

The Panthers put Benjamin on blast during the offseason, but he got the message. Despite the weight issues and a disappointing 2016, Benjamin is still the Panthers' No. 1 receiver. If he can avoid Eddie Lacy status, he's a touchdown scorer who should produce as a WR2/3.

Michael Vick is working as a coaching intern for the Chiefs this summer.

Vick said in June that he wanted to get into coaching, and his former coach Andy Reid is giving him his first opportunity. Vick is a bright football mind who loves to compete, but his controversial past could make him a tough sell as a coach.

Texans placed LT Duane Brown on the reserve/did not report list.

It means Brown is subject to $40,000 per day in fines. Brown is due $9.4 million heading into his age-32 season, though none of it is guaranteed. This year probably isn't the concern for Brown, who is signed through 2018. He's almost certainly looking for some guaranteed dough heading into next season.

Ex-Browns and Bengals WR Andrew Hawkins has told the Patriots he's retiring.

He's going to pursue a Ph.D. in economics. The longtime Ohio slot man was on the outside looking in of the Patriots' 53-man roster, as the team's top-five receivers were already set. Often unheralded, Hawkins' effectiveness had been on the wane. He turned 30 in March 2016. A 2008 UDFA, Hawkins hangs up his cleats with 209 receptions, all of which came from 2011-16.

All charges stemming from ex-Cowboys WR/KR Lucky Whitehead's petty larceny case have been dropped.

This is a bad look for the Cowboys, who instantly cut Whitehead when news of the (false) accusation broke. The warrant for Whitehead's arrest was "rescinded" when Virginia police discovered they "had the wrong guy." Whitehead was a largely-ineffective gadget player/special teamer, anyway, but you can be sure the media is going to let the Cowboys have it, particularly in light of their unflinching stance that Ezekiel Elliott is innocent of multiple far-more-sinister alleged crimes.

Broncos hired ex-coach Gary Kubiak in a scouting/advisor role.

Kubiak stepped away from head coaching following a number of health issues, but he always made it known he wanted to stay in football in some capacity. One of GM John Elway's best friends -- as well as Elway's backup during their playing days -- Kubiak will now be a trusted personnel hand for Denver's front office.

NFL.com reports Greg Olsen will play out his contract.

Olsen also said, "after (ex-GM Dave) Gettleman was fired he did not want to be a further distraction." Despite his slow contract negotiations probably contributing toward Gettleman's firing, Olsen is now oddly accepting his current contract. As the most reliable component of the Panthers' offense and one of the NFL's top tight ends Olsen certainly deserves to be paid as such.
