ESPN's Mike Reiss believes the Patriots re-signing free agent Michael Floyd is a "long shot" after the addition of Brandin Cooks.

Sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention earlier this offseason as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, Floyd hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest and likely won't until later this summer. With Cooks now added to the mix in New England, there doesn't appear to be room for Floyd. ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein thinks Floyd could make sense in Detroit.

Redskins signed WR Brian Quick, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year contract.

The Rams reached for Quick at No. 33 overall in the 2012 draft, and it took him years to figure out the pro game coming out of small-school Appalachian State. Rams staffers were comparing him to Vincent Jackson and Terrell Owens coming out of college. Obviously, those comps never materialized, but Quick has good size at 6'3/218 and has a strong 14.3 career YPR average. Quick figures to slide in as the No. 4 receiver as long as Josh Doctson is healthy.

Vikings signed LE Brian Robison to a one-year extension through 2018.

He's now signed for $7.5 million over the next two years, including $5.15 million guaranteed. In return, Robison lowers his cap number for 2017 in exchange for an added year. The soon-to-be 34-year-old (in April) is entering his 11th year in Minnesota. He's missed just two games in his career and had a three-year-best 7.5 sacks in 2016. The Vikings have quite a bit of edge talent.

Panthers signed RB Jonathan Stewart to a one-year extension through 2018.

Stewart turned 30 earlier this week. There was some belief that the Panthers could release Stewart this offseason, saving $6.25 million as a post-June 1 cut, but GM Dave Gettleman apparently thinks there's more in the tank. Stewart averaged a career-low 3.8 YPC (minimum 100 carries) last season, though he did score a seven-year-high nine touchdowns, seeing more goal-line work with the Panthers trying to limit Cam Newton's rushing opportunities. Gettleman has already said he'll draft a running back this year. Leonard Fournette at No. 8 could still be in play.
Mar 24 - 9:24 AM

Seahawks signed ILB Michael Wilhoite, formerly of the 49ers.

Wilhoite chewed up snaps for the 49ers' ineffective defense the past two seasons, but was part of the problem. Now on the wrong side of 30, Wilhoite will be a reserve run thumper for the 'Hawks.
Mar 23 - 9:55 PM

Bears agreed to terms with QB Mark Sanchez, formerly of the Cowboys, to a one-year contract.

He slides in as the No. 2 behind Mike Glennon. Unproven, Glennon is one of the league's worst starters on paper, so there's a chance Sanchez makes 2017 starts. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2009 draft, Sanchez has attempted just 109 passes over the past two seasons. The 30 year old is a mediocre backup.
Mar 23 - 8:49 PM

Rams signed DT Tyrunn Walker, formerly of the Lions.

Walker started a career high eight games last season before being benched down the stretch for the Lions. His stock has really dropped since he drew a decent amount of interest in 2015 free agency. He has zero sacks since 2014, and fared poorly against the run last season. He's pure depth.
Mar 23 - 7:57 PM

Saints re-signed DE Darryl Tapp.

A longtime reserve, Tapp was a body upfront for the Saints last season. He played 291 solid snaps, primarily against the run. Tapp turns 33 in September.
Mar 23 - 4:43 PM

Packers signed DL Ricky Jean-Francois to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Jean-Francois slides right in as a proven run stopper for a defense that started out hot on the ground last season, but faded as the year wore on. Headed into his age-31 season, Jean-Francois hasn't missed a game since 2013. He will be a valuable role player in Green Bay.
Mar 23 - 4:38 PM

Jets signed WR Quinton Patton, formerly of the 49ers.

Coming off a career high 37 catches for 408 yards, Patton is reuniting with WRs coach John Morton, who coached Patton the first two years of his career under Jim Harbaugh. Not an explosive athlete, Patton makes his name with competence and sure hands. He'll fight for No. 3 or 4 duties in New York.
Mar 23 - 2:53 PM

Chargers re-signed RB Branden Oliver to a one-year contract.

Oliver wasn't tendered as a restricted free agent. Recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, the Chargers correctly assumed they could re-sign Oliver for less than the "low" tender of $1.797 million. When healthy, Oliver is a versatile backup who does a little bit of everything, but nothing at an above-average level.
Mar 23 - 2:03 PM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Julio Jones (foot surgery) is expected to be "full strength" for the start of training camp.

Jones' initial timeline had him questionable for the start of camp, but apparently a more optimistic estimate has emerged. Either way, the superstar figures to be babied through the summer, and perhaps even held out of the preseason. The only goal is having Jones ready for Week 1, which he should be.
Mar 23 - 1:49 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports it's "increasingly likely" free agent Darrelle Revis signs with the Patriots.

Citing "numerous league sources," La Canfora reports New England is shaping up as perhaps the only place Revis would play. The Boston Globe advised four days ago not to "discount" the possibility of Revis in New England, but it does seem rather a stretch after Bill Belichick confidant Mike Lombardi opined for The Ringer that Revis has yet to find a new home because he "has not really taken care of his body" and "looked slow" on 2016 tape. Beyond speculation, there's been nothing concrete — like a visit — linking Revis to his former team.

Bengals re-signed RB Cedric Peerman to a one-year contract.

Peerman spent most of 2016 on injured reserve with a broken arm he suffered in the preseason. A standout on special teams, Peerman could get bigger look on offense following the departure of Rex Burkhead.

MMQB's Albert Breer was told the Raiders have "27 or 28" votes in their bid to relocate to Las Vegas.

They only need 24, so that leaves them quite a bit of wiggle room heading into the expected vote next week at the Annual League Meeting. The Raiders still have questions to answer about their bid, however, and it is possible they only gain condition approval despite having the necessary votes. Still, it will be a shock if the Raiders do not relocate to Las Vegas in the near future.
