Martellus Bennett has retired from the NFL.

Bennett had been considering retirement before his trade to the Patriots and made it official when they didn't bring him back. After spending his first four years as a backup in Dallas, Bennett was one of the better receiving tight ends in the league for parts of six seasons with the Giants, Chicago, Green Bay and New England. He finishes his 10-year career with 433 catches, 4,573 yards and 30 touchdowns. Bennett made one Pro Bowl appearance (2014). He won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.

Broncos acquired OT Jared Veldheer from the Cardinals for a 2018 sixth round pick.

This is a salary dump for Arizona, with Denver picking up Veldheer's $10.2 million cap hit. Veldheer has faded the last two years, struggling with injuries and grading as one of the worst tackles in the league. He gives the Broncos a veteran with late career upside in a new scheme. Veldheer will play right tackle in Denver, bookending LT Garett Bolles.

Bills released DE Ryan Davis.

Davis appeared in all 16 games with Buffalo as a situational pass rusher, posting three sacks. His release saves $1.2 million.

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney wants to finish his career in Houston.

"I want to be here. I'm looking forward to that. Hopefully they lock me in." Texans GM Brian Gaine said an extension was "on the horizon" for Clowney back in January but there hasn't been any progress. Clowney is set to make $12.3 million under his 2018 option. The Houston Chronicle expects Clowney to surpass Von Miller's deal (six years, $114M).

Raiders re-signed OLB Shilique Calhoun.

An exclusive rights free agent, Calhoun was tendered earlier this month. He'll have a $540K salary if he makes it past final cuts.

Free agent Eric Reid has interest from a "couple teams."

Reid doesn't have any known visits to this point. The 49ers are moving on from him, but he should land a deal in the third wave of free agency. Reid is the top safety available behind Kenny Vaccaro.

Cardinals signed CB Bene Benwikere to a one-year contract.

Benwikere appeared in 12 games on special teams with Dallas last year, playing just 10 defensive snaps. He could get more playing time in Arizona, where the Cardinals have no proven options behind Patrick Peterson. Benwikere spent his first three years as the Panthers' slot corner but has been bouncing around the league since.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports it's "less than a sure thing" free agent Ndamukong Suh signs with the Jets.

The Jets have emerged as one of the top landing spots for Suh. The Rams still look to be the favorites, but the Jets have the most cap space and made Suh the largest offer. New Orleans and Tennessee also remain in the mix.

Buccaneers re-signed G/C Evan Smith to a two-year contract.

Smith played all over the field last season, logging snaps at center and both guard positions. He's just a depth signing for the Bucs.

Dolphins signed QB Brock Osweiler, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year contract.

He'll be reunited with Adam Gase, who previously served as Osweiler's OC in Denver. The Fins needed a backup after letting Matt Moore walk in free agency. A year after flaming out in Houston, Osweiler was equally dreadful in his return to Denver, producing a dismal 72.5 quarterback rating over six appearances including four starts. With only Ryan Tannehill ahead of Osweiler on the depth chart, it wouldn't be a surprise if Miami took a quarterback early in next month's draft.

NFL suspended Chargers DT Corey Liuget four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs.

"I made a mistake and take full responsibility," said Liuget, who claims he took a banned substance accidentally after trusting someone who wasn't "well-versed" with the NFL's policy on PEDs. "I apologize to our fans, my family and the entire Chargers organization." His absence will open up playing time for Darius Philon and Damion Square along the defensive line.

NFL suspended Giants DE Josh Mauro four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs.

He signed with the Giants earlier this week. In a statement, Mauro said the positive test was triggered by a pre-workout supplement he bought over the counter. The 27-year-old logged 22 tackles and one sack over 333 defensive snaps for Arizona last season.

Wyoming QB Josh Allen reportedly "dazzled" at the Cougars' Pro Day on Friday, and afterwards NFL Network's Mike Mayock suggested Allen is more naturally gifted than Eagles QB Carson Wentz.

Allen has drawn some Wentz comparisons in the scouting community. Both are big, athletic, strong-armed passers, and Allen played for the same coach Wentz did at North Dakota State. "From a physical talent perspective, this kid is a better athlete with more arm talent (than Wentz)," Mayock observed. The Cleveland Plain Dealer says Allen "alleviated concerns about his 56.2 completion percentage at Wyoming and kept himself firmly in the conversation for the Browns' No. 1 overall pick." The Browns sent a full contingency of owner Jimmy Haslam, GM John Dorsey, coach Hue Jackson, assistant GM Eliot Wolf, and OC Ken Zampese to watch Allen's workout.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett has been indicted on a felony charge of injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic woman at Super Bowl 51.

The 66-year-old woman was working at Houston's NRG Stadium trying to control access to the field. A warrant in the state of Texas has been issued for Bennett's arrest. Then a member of the Seahawks, Bennett attended the Super Bowl to watch his brother Martellus. Michael was accused of shoving his way onto the field after the woman told him to use a different entrance. Bennett faces a penalty of up to 10 years in prison in addition to a $10,000 fine.

According to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz, the Jets have emerged as a "serious suitor" for free agent Ndamukong Suh.

While the Jets haven't arranged a visit yet, coach Todd Bowles has spoken with Suh and told him "precisely" how the team plans on using him. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, New York has presented the "biggest offer" for Suh, who is also being pursued by the Rams, Saints and Titans. The Jets have made considerable improvements to their team through free agency and adding Suh to the defense would be icing on the cake. Landing Suh would more than make up for the loss of Muhammad Wilkerson.
