      Lewis had 12 tackles (10 solo) and one interception in 15 games this season.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Lewis had a heavy workload during his rookie campaign in 2017, but saw double-digit defensive snaps in only three games this season. The 23-year-old was entrenched as the Cowboys' No. 4 cornerback and worked mostly in dime packages. Lewis is likely to begin 2019 in a similar role with Chidobe Awuzie, Byron Jones and Anthony Brown all under contract next year.

      Thomas had 14 tackles (seven solo) over 10 games in 2018.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Thomas signed a two-year deal with the Cowboys last March and played a minor defensive role through the first five weeks before suffering a foot injury. The 27-year-old returned Week 13, but by that point rookie Leighton Vander Esch had already carved out an every-down role. Thomas is under contract for 2019 with a $2.4 million cap hit, but his roster position isn't overly secure as he could be released with only $300,000 in dead cap, per Spotrac.com.

      Ross had 14 tackles (six solo), one sack and one forced fumble in 13 games this season.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ross served as a rotational defensive tackle for the Cowboys this year after signing off the Chiefs practice squad in November 2017. The 24-year-old is set to become an exclusive-rights free agent, so he'll be back in Dallas in 2019 if the team offers any contract.

      Wentz (back) is expected to return to full health by the start of the Eagles' offseason program in April, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Once he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his back, Wentz was shut down for the final three games of the regular season, all of which were Eagles victories at the direction of his replacement Nick Foles. Foles proceeded to lead the team to a wild-card win in Chicago, but the magic wore out during a divisional-round loss at New Orleans. Afterward, coach Doug Pederson committed to Wentz as Philadelphia's starting quarterback moving forward, per Tim McManus of ESPN.com. While the QB situation remains somewhat murky due to Wentz's health and Foles' presence, the latter likely will be resolved before the new league year begins on March 13 as a result of fine print within his contract. Beyond that, the former expects to progress from his current place in a strengthening program to full participant in the team's offseason program.

      Watson (illness) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Rams, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Watson's availability for the NFC Championship Game was clouded when appendicitis was revealed as the reason for his absence from practice Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the diagnosis, he so far has avoided surgery and even was a limited participant at Friday's session, leading to a questionable designation. However, his condition hasn't improved enough to reintroduce him to the rigors of tight end. In Watson's stead, Josh Hill, Garrett Griffin and Dan Arnold will hold down the position in the Saints offense.

      The NFL's investigation into Hunt is ongoing but expected to be resolved by the start of the new league year on March 13, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Chiefs cut Hunt loose in late November after video emerged of the running back pushing a woman. The aforementioned investigation regards that incident as well as two others. Since he landed on the Commissioner's Exempt list, Hunt commenced counseling for anger management and alcohol issues but has yet to speak with league officials about his situation. It's unclear whether his inevitable suspension for violating the personal conduct policy will include the final five games of this season or instead begin in earnest during the 2019 campaign. Either way, Hunt should know his fate by the start of free agency, helping teams weigh the risk-reward balance of bringing the 23-year-old into the fold.

  • Jarrod Wilson DB - JAX
    • Sat, Jan 19, 9:44pm

      Wilson signed a three-year contract with the Jaguars on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Wilson was set to be a restricted free agent but the Jaguars opted to ink him to an extension. The 24-year-old filled in at strong safety for the final three games of the season after Ronnie Harrison (knee) landed on injured reserve. Wilson could be an option at free safety for 2019 as well, since the Jaguars are hurting for cap space and veteran Tashaun Gipson is a potential cap casualty.
