      The Bills are reportedly planning to cut ties with Williams due to a "clear, fundamental disconnect" between the pass rusher and Rex Ryan's coaching staff, Chris Weaseling of NFL.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: By most people's perspective, Williams had a pathetic season where he produced only five sacks and somehow logged just 19 tackles over 15 games. He seemed to be constantly at odds with Ryan's defensive philosophy, to the point where a couple of younger teammates called out Williams' effort later in the season. The team can $12.9 million in salary cap space if they let Williams go, something that's starting to sound like more of a matter of when, not if.

      Davis' (forearm) contract automatically voided Thursday, making him an unrestricted free agent as of March 15, the Charlotte Observer reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The stipulation was placed in the two-year deal that Davis signed last June, which served to spread out his signing bonus and dampen the salary cap hit. After playing valiantly through a broken right forearm in the Super Bowl, the soon-to-be 33-year-old will have to decide whether the risk of another serious injury is worth it. However, he cobbled together the second-most tackles on the Panthers in 2015 -- or 105, to be exact -- so the production is still in line with his history when healthy.

      Philadelphia authorities likely won't issue arrest warrants until next week for McCoy (knee) and three others that were involved in an alleged assault of two off-duty police offices at a night club early Sunday morning, CSN Philadelphia reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The investigation by the District Attorney's office is "moving slowly for a reason," likely in order to put together as many of the pieces of the puzzle as possible. In addition to any legal concerns related to the incident, McCoy can be expected to face consequences from the NFL, but those will likely be delayed while the case works its way through the court system.

      Allen re-signed with the Raiders on Thursday.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Allen resigns with the Raiders after being released by the team earlier this week. By releasing and resigning, the Raiders saved $5 million, as they avoided giving the safety the full guarantee of his last deal.

      Cotchery will be a free agent in March, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Panthers added a voidable year to Cotchery's contract to get some cap relief in 2015. The move will cost the team a $1.35 million cap hit in 2016, but it doesn't necessarily mean that Cotchery's tenure in Carolina will come to an end. Regardless, the 33-year-old wideout is long past his days of fantasy relevance.

      Burfict's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.

      Mayo (pectoral) is unlikely to be back with the Patriots in 2016, CSN New England reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: There's no chance Mayo will return under the terms of his current contract, but it wouldn't be all that surprising if he were to accept a pay cut to stay with the only team he's ever known. Either way, his days as a useful IDP are likely over, with the Patriots only viewing him as a two-down linebacker at this stage in his carer. Mayo also faces the challenge of recovering from a torn pectoral that he suffered during the playoffs.

      Perriman (knee) is expected to be ready for the offseason program, the Ravens' official website reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The 26th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Perriman missed his entire rookie season due to a series of issues with his right knee. He eventually had arthroscopic surgery at the end of September/beginning of October, and while the Ravens still held out hope for a 2015 debut, Perriman was ultimately placed on IR in mid-November. With Steve Smith (Achilles) recovering from an even more severe injury, Baltimore wants the lightning-fast Perriman to be a huge part of the offense in 2016.

      Ellerbe and the Saints agreed to a restructured contract, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ellerbe signed a five-year, $35 contract with the Dolphins in 2013, then was traded to the Saints in March 2015. He's mostly been effective when healthy, but with just seven games played over the last two seasons, it was inevitable that he'd either accept a pay cut or be released. The Saints presumably have him penciled in as a starter for 2016.

  • Armonty Bryant LB - CLE
    • Wed, Feb 10, 5:17pm

      Bryant was indicted Tuesday on felony drug charges stemming from a traffic stop on Dec. 25, ABC 5 Cleveland reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: During the stop, police officers allegedly found Bryant with Adderall on his person in addition to marijuana, oxycodone, and a gun in the car. While he wasn't the driver, the charges could have an impact on the final year of his rookie deal in 2016.
