      Bennett (shoulder) wants to return to the football field for the 2018 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Bennett indicated plans to retire before being waived by the Packers in November, and subsequently claimed by the Patriots. The 30-year-old appeared in only two games for New England before landing on injured reserve, and is due a two million dollar roster bonus March 14, which makes him a potential cap casualty.

      Harris announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Prior to his surprising release last summer, Harris was a consistent force in the middle of the Jets' defense for years after the team traded up to select the Michigan product in the second round of the 2007 draft. He ultimately racked up the second-most tackles in Jets history (1,087) during his 10 seasons with Gang Green and goes down as one of the team's all-time great defenders despite being perennially underrated by the media. Factoring in his one-year stint in New England, Harris will finish his career with 1,109 tackles, 36.5 sacks, six interceptions and 11 forced fumbles over 164 career games.

      Jordan recently underwent minor surgery on his left foot, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Jordan, who currently requires a protective boot and scooter to move around, reportedly underwent a voluntary procedure that had more to do with "pain tolerance" than anything else. The fact that he played in the Pro Bowl prior to undergoing surgery suggests the situation truly is minor in nature. The 2017 All-Pro defensive end is expected to be recovered within 4-6 weeks and should therefore be healthy in time for the Saints' offseason program this spring.

      The Chiefs agreed to trade Peters to the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The deal won't officially go through until March 14, while the Chiefs are expected to receive a package of draft picks in return. It's a surprising move for a Kansas City team that could've kept Peters around for two more years on his current rookie deal, especially when considering the 2015 first-rounder has seven more interceptions than any other player in the league since 2015, including the playoffs. By comparison, only Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed had more interceptions (22) in his first three seasons than Peters' 21. The newly signed David Amerson and newly acquired Kyle Fuller will likely take over as the Chiefs' top cornerbacks in advance of the 2018 season, though it's possible Kansas City could add another talent to the mix.

      Sanders (ankle) has resumed running and is nearing a full recovery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's going well, my ankle is recovering," Sanders said. "Right now, I feel like I'm 95 percent."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Sanders sustained a "major" sprained ankle and tibia contusion in Week 5 against the Giants and his recovery has been complicated by swelling, a limited range of motion and diminished strength, according to the doctor in charge of his rehabilitation. However, barring any setbacks, it sounds like he could be recovered in time for OTAs in late April or early May.

      Ivory was released by the Jaguars on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ivory hasn't been the player Jacksonville thought he could be when it gave him a five-year, $32 million contract in the 2016 offseason, as the 2015 Pro Bowler managed a lackluster 3.6 YPC and just four touchdowns in two seasons. The Jaguars simply couldn't afford his price tag while also having the league's fourth-highest paid running back, Leonard Fournette, under contract, especially considering Ivory's running style essentially renders him a much less dynamic version of Jacksonville's young workhorse. Releasing Ivory saves the team roughly $3.68 million in cap space and leaves T.J. Yeldon as the clear backup to Fournette.

      Winston was involved in a car wreck recently and ultimately was cited for careless driving, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Despite Winston being partially at fault for the wreck, a punishment from the NFL is not expected and he escaped uninjured. The 24-year-old will head into the 2018 season on the last remaining year of his contract.

      Glanton (lower leg) won't be tendered by the Buccaneers and will become a free agent, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Glanton broke his leg in the season finale and likely won't be signed until he's fully recovered from his injury, which figures to be around April. Expect the linebacker to sign with Tampa Bay or another team once he's healthy.

    • Thu, Feb 22, 4:56pm

      Gano is likely to receive the franchise tag from the Panthers, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Gano is coming off a strong 2017, which saw him hit 29-of-30 field goals, with his only miss coming from more than 50 yards. He's been with the team for the past six seasons and the team can keep him around for a seventh year at $4.8 million by using the tag.

  • Nick Novak K - LAC
    • Thu, Feb 22, 4:46pm

      Novak (back) has recovered from injuries that resulted in his ending the 2017 season on Injured Reserve and he intends to play in 2018, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Novak was placed on IR in Week 14 after sitting out a few weeks prior to that. He's not currently under contract for 2018 and will likely be looking at a near minimum deal if he does sign with a team.
