      Updating a previous report, CSN Bay Area reports that Johnson is not expected to be released imminently, though his standing on the San Francisco roster is unclear.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The previous report implied that Johnson would be released in the near future, but for now it apparently remains no more than a consideration for the 49ers, who aren't sure what to make of Johnson and his $6.025 million salary. Since the 49ers acquired Johnson in a trade, cutting him would carry no penalty, but perhaps the organization is loathe to cut an asset that cost a fourth-round pick just one year ago.

      Wayne recently underwent surgery to repair a torn triceps and is considering retirement, NFL.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Wayne had 64 receptions for 779 yards receiving and two touchdowns last season, but the triceps injury slowed him late in the season as he had just one reception in three playoff games. It may have been due to the injury, although he missed just one game, but Wayne clearly took a back seat to Donte Moncrief who surpassed him as the No. 2 receiver late in the year. If he returns, it will likely be in a more limited third or fourth receiver role.

      McCown agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Browns on Friday, Mke Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Bills were said to be making push for McCown, but the Browns swooped in and inked the veteran signal caller, presumably to be their starter for the foreseeable future. McCown completed just 56.3 percent of his passes with an 11:14 TD:INT ratio in 11 games with the Buccaneers last season, but Brian Hoyer is set to hit free agency and Johnny Manziel proved unprepared for the starting job in his audition last year.

      Massaquoi was released by the Falcons on Friday, ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Massaquoi joined the Falcons as a fifth-round pick in 2012 and posted a pair of sacks to go with 22 tackles last season. Nonetheless, even on a wildly underwhelming defense, Massaquoi will not be retained by Atlanta next season, opening the door for him to sign elsewhere this offseason.

      Dockett was released by the Cardinals on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Dockett already acknowledged the possibility of a split, but it's still possible the two sides will work things out as the veteran defensive tackle prepares for his age-34 season. Never one to be shy about his opinions, Dockett seems to have a good relationship with the Arizona fanbase and organization. Now more than six months removed from tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee, Dockett should be healthy in time for the start of the 2015 season. He had 46 tackles (36 solo) and 4.5 sacks over 16 games in 2013, and he's long been more valuable than his statistics alone suggest.

  • Brandon Gibson WR - MIA
    • Fri, Feb 27, 12:43pm

      Gibson was released by the Dolphins on Friday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Gibson joins former teammate Brian Hartline, who was released by the Dolphins earlier in the day. With Mike Wallace's status with the team still in limbo, the only sure thing regarding Miami's receiving corps is that Jarvis Landry will have a significant role in 2015. Gibson played well as the Dolphins No. 3 wideout in 2013, before a torn patellar tendon ended his season early. He then struggled in 2014, producing just 5.8 yards per target on 51 looks. He may need to compete for a roster spot in training camp, depending on where he lands. The Dolphins are purging their roster of the players they unwisely overpaid in past seasons.

  • Stephen Bowen DL - WAS
    • Fri, Feb 27, 12:12pm

      Bowen was released by the Redskins on Friday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Redskins dumped a pair of veteran defensive linemen, releasing Bowen and Barry Cofield. The team recently signed fellow lineman Ricky Jean-Francois, who was released by the Colts earlier this week. Bowen had 41 tackles and six sacks back in 2011, but his career has otherwise barely registered from a statistical perspective.

  • Devonta Freeman RB - ATL
    • Fri, Feb 27, 11:20am

      Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said there is "no question" that Freeman can serve as a full-time back in Atlanta's offense, the Falcons' official website reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Steven Jackson was recently released, while Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith are both set to become unrestricted free agents. That leaves Freeman as the team's projected starter for 2015, but there's still an entire offseason that needs to play out, with a strong group of running backs in both free agency and the draft. There has been no shortage of Freeman hype so far this offseason.

      Young is registered for the NFL veteran's combine, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Now 31 years old, Young is unlikely to take another snap in the NFL. He'll be 32 by the time the 2015 season begins.

  • Barry Cofield DL - WAS
    • Fri, Feb 27, 10:58am

      Cofield was released by the Redskins on Friday, ESPN's John Keim reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: It probably wasn't much of a decision, as the transaction saves Washington approximately $4.1 million against the 2015 cap. Soon to be 31 years old, Cofield should catch on elsewhere, if he doesn't agree to a smaller contract with the Redskins. He has never topped 54 tackles or four sacks in a single season.
