Latest Player News

Cameron Wake signed a contract extension with the Dolphins that will run through the 2018 season.

Impact

The 35-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down, as recorded 29 tackles to go along with 11.5 sacks through 16 games last season. He'll remain a staple of the Miami defense for at least the next two seasons.

Will Compton (knee - PCL) is progressing well from the knee injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Eagles. "I feel good about where I'll be come April," he said.

Impact

Compton missed just one game due to the sprained PCL and played through the injury in both of the Redskins' final two games. Offseason surgery wasn't necessary, however, so the Nebraska product has subscribed to a regimen of rest and rehab as a means for recovery. He has until mid-April to return to full strength.

Jordan Cameron

The Dolphins are moving on from Jordan Cameron (concussion) this offseason, the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

Cameron, an unrestricted free agent, appeared in just three games this past season due to concussion issues and is known to be considering retirement. When healthy, he averaged just 23.5 receiving yards per game the last two years and found the end zone only four times across 19 appearances. With Dion Sims set to hit the open market as well, MarQueis Gray currently sits atop the Dolphins tight end depth chart.

Julius Thomas

Julius Thomas (back) remains in the Jaguars' plans for 2017, WJXT Jacksonville reports.

Impact

Thomas was due $3 million if he was still on the roster at 4 PM ET, and the deadline came and went, signaling the Jaguars' commitment to the tight end for the upcoming season. They only would've saved $2 million by cutting him, so that doesn't seem to have been a legitimate possibility anyway. However, they can save $7 million by releasing him next season. Unless Thomas can put together a healthy and productive 2017 campaign, his days in Jacksonville may be numbered. The former All-Pro tight end has only played in 21 of 32 games as a member of the organization.

Ryan Seymour signed a contract with the Cowboys on Friday, 247Sports.com reports.

Impact

Seymour was on the Cowboys' practice squad for most of the 2016 season before getting the call-up to the active roster for Week 17. He was later released in order for the team to add extra depth at wide receiver for the playoffs. Now back in Dallas, he'll compete for a depth role in advance of the 2017 campaign.

Josh Wells re-signed with the Jaguars on Friday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

Impact

The terms of the contract weren't disclosed. Wells will look to secure the Jaguars' left tackle job this summer.

Ameer Abdullah

Ameer Abdullah (foot) remains on track to return by the start of offseason workouts in April, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Impact

On the mend from an unspecified injury to his left foot, Abdullah said in early January that he anticipates being ready for the start of OTAs in April. His recovery remains setback-free and it doesn't appear as if it'll be much longer until he returns to full strength. The former second-rounder showcased his progress Friday by posting a video of himself on Instagram sprinting on a treadmill. With well over a month until the start of team workouts, Abdullah certainly appears on track to be ready. Of greater concern to his 2017 outlook than a potential delay to his offseason preparation is the Lions stated intent to upgrade the running game this offseason. This doesn't necessarily imply they want to specifically add another running back, but then again GM Bob Quinn didn't rule out such a possibility either.

Michael Floyd (W, NE)

Michael Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and began serving a 24-day sentence at Maricopa County Jail on Thursday, FOX 10 Phoenix reports.

Impact

Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a policy officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December. The receiver was released by the Cardinals immediately after that incident, but later signed with the Patriots for the remainder of the season. Following his sentencing, Floyd will serve 24 days behind bars before spending 96 days on house arrest. He'll also be required to pay a $5,000 fine, perform community service and attend an alcohol abuse class. While discipline from the NFL also potentially awaits, so too does Floyd's unrestricted free agency this offseason.

Laremy Tunsil is expected to be the Dolphins' starting left tackle next season, NFL.com reports.

Impact

Tunsil, the 13th overall pick of last year's draft, spent the majority of his impressive rookie season playing guard, but once the Dolphins part ways with veteran Branden Albert, he'll be able to return to the blindside position he dominated in college.

Zac Stacy has announced his retirement from the NFL.

Impact

Stacy made waves during his rookie season with the Rams, when he totaled over 1,000 yards and scored eight times in 14 appearances. While that success saw his fantasy stock peak ahead of the 2014 campaign, Stacy responded with just 293 rushing yards and one touchdown as a sophomore. After that disappointment, the Rams traded him to the Jets, for whom Stacy only played eight games before fracturing his ankle. That injury prevented Stacy from suiting up again, and has led the former fifth-rounder to now call time on his short-lived career.

Luke Willson (T, Sea)

Luke Willson is expected to explore all his options in free agency, which could rule out a return to the Seahawks, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Impact

Willson has reached the end of his rookie contract, meaning he's set to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. After recording 74 catches for 976 yards and seven touchdowns through his first four seasons, Willson's production is strikingly similar to that of his former college roommate, Vance McDonald, who was guaranteed $9 million over three years from the 49ers back in December. With Jimmy Graham scheduled to count $10 million against the cap next season, and after Seattle spent a third-round pick on Nick Vannett last year, Willson's projected value could very well lead him to sign elsewhere this offseason.

Zach Line underwent hip surgery after this season but is expected to be off crutches in the near future, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

Impact

Line started four of his 15 games played in 2016, rushing for 15 yards on seven carries. Now slated to be an unrestricted free agent, Line's hip procedure doesn't sound like something that should impact his availability ahead of the 2017 campaign.

King Dunlap was arrested in Nashville on Thursday night and charged with violating an order of protection, WKRN Nashville reports.

Impact

Dunlap's girlfriend allegedly asked him if he wanted to gather some clothes from her residence before he left for San Diego to train this offseason, and after Dunlap arrived to do so, he violated terms of a protective order that meant the two couldn't come in contact. According to a statement released by Dunlap's attorney after his client was bailed out of jail, the incident was a misunderstanding of that order, and a favorable resolution is expected to be reached. A Nashville native, Dunlap is slated to earn $5.75 million during the 2017 season, which is a figure the Chargers are anticipated to try and restructure this offseason, or free from their books by releasing Dunlap altogether, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Amini Silatolu signed a one-year contract Friday with the Panthers.

Impact

Silatolu, who was originally drafted by the Panthers in 2012, was released by the Bears prior to the start of the 2016 season and ended up not playing for any team last year. He'll provide depth for an offensive line that struggled a bit last season after a strong 2015 campaign.

Darrelle Revis has been charged with four first-degree felonies and one misdemeanor in the wake of a recent off-field incident in Pittsburgh, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Impact

Following an investigation into Revis' alleged role in an incident over the weekend, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has brought five separate charges against the star cornerback. The charges include robbery, conspiracy, two counts of aggravated assault, and one charge of terroristic threats. According to Cimini, Revis intends to turn himself in once a warrant is issued Friday. More updates on this case will follow as more details are released.

Ladarius Green (W, Pit)

Ladarius Green isn't in the NFL's protocol for head injuries, yet he hasn't received clearance from the concussion suffered in Week 15, Mark Kaboly of DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

Impact

A lengthy recovery from offseason ankle surgery pushed back Green's debut as a Steeler to Week 10, but he was only active for six games before a concussion reared its head in Week 15, keeping him sidelined during the team's run to the AFC championship game. Beset by concussions in the past, there's no telling when he'll rid himself of symptoms. For Green's sake, general manager Kevin Colbert expects the tight end to be a part of the Steelers' roster next season, per Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter. Having said that, Green's recovery will likely determine Colbert's course of action in upcoming months.

Darrelle Revis is under investigation for an alleged incident that took place early Monday morning in Pittsburgh, SNY.tv reports.

Impact

Amid conflicting eyewitness accounts, an investigation is underway to determine if criminal charges are warranted for any of the parties involved. As a result of the episode, the Jets released a statement. "We've spoken to Darrelle. We're aware of the incident. We'll have no further comment." The organization was already weighing whether to cut bait with Revis, who is due a $2 million roster bonus on March 11 and $15.3 million for the 2017 campaign. Now with a potential legal matter pending, his seat may have grown hotter after the worst season of his 10-year career.

Branden Albert remains with the Dolphins after reportedly being released, Charles Trainor Jr. of the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

Albert was reportedly released early in the day Thursday but as of Thursday afternoon the team decided to pump the breaks on the action. The reasons for the change are unclear, but it appears some teams expressed interest in Albert and the Dolphins will look to see if they can get anything for him in a trade. For the time being, it remains unlikely that Albert will be with the Dolphins at the start of the 2017 season.

Dan Orlovsky (Q, Det)

The Lions informed Dan Orlovsky that he will not be re-signed this offseason, The Detroit Free Press reports.

Impact

Over the weekend, Orlovsky was told the team will let his contract expire at the end of the league year in order to go in a different direction at backup quarterback. The main beneficiary in this situation is Jake Rudock, the Lions' sixth-round pick in 2016 who will replace Orlovsky as the No. 2. It isn't clear what sort of market awaits the 33-year-old veteran, but Orlovsky should be able to latch on somewhere due to his serviceability as a second-string signal-caller as well as the veteran presence he can provide a locker room.

Charley Hughlett signed a six-year contract with the Browns on Thursday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Impact

Hughlett's deal reportedly makes him the highest paid long snapper in the NFL, though the specifics of the contract have not been released. He has handled all of the team's long snapping duties for the past two years, and he's now locked up through the 2022 season.
