NFL Recent Player News

Team: 

Date Player
2/10/2016 Jon Beason, NYG, LB
Beason will reportedly retire.

Analysis: Beason's stint with New York was plagued by injuries.
2/10/2016 Geoff Schwartz, NYG, G
Schwartz has reportedly been released.

Analysis: Schwartz played 13 games in two seasons with the Giants and was plagued by injuries.
2/10/2016 Will Beatty, NYG, T
Beatty has reportedly been released.

Analysis: Beatty missed all of the 2015 season with a torn pectoral.
2/9/2016 Johnny Manziel, Cle, QB
The Browns are defending their handling of Johnny Manziel's late-season concussion.

Analysis: The team issued a statement on Tuesday saying Manziel was diagnosed with a concussion on Dec. 30 by an independent neurologist, countering an NFL Network report that they lied about the injury to cover up the troubled quarterback showing up intoxicated for practice. The league's in-house network reported citing an unnamed Browns player that the team "lied" to try and protect Manziel, who is being investigated by Dallas police on allegations of domestic violence.
2/9/2016 Nate Allen, Oak, S
The Raiders have terminated Allen's contract.

Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $23 million contract by Oakland last March, Allen played in just five games due to a pair of knee injuries. The six-year veteran was due a $4.9 million salary for next season, though none of the money was guaranteed.
2/9/2016 Michael Griffin, Ten, S
The Tennessee Titans have released Griffin after nine seasons in their first step toward improving their secondary.

Analysis: A first-round draft pick in 2007 at No. 19 overall out of Texas, Griffin was a two-time Pro Bowl pick in 2008 and 2010 whose 141 games played tied Corey Graham of Buffalo for most games played by a safety between 2007 and 2015. Griffin had 25 interceptions and also became the fifth player in franchise history with 900 career tackles and the most by a safety.
2/9/2016 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Newton said Tuesday that he's a "sore loser," but defended walking out of a press conference after the Super Bowl by saying he didn't feel like talking to the media after Carolina's 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Analysis: The league NFL MVP didn't apologize for walking out of a brief three-minute interview on Sunday night in which he sulked and answered most questions in one- and two-word answers. Newton looked terrible while throwing an interception, fumbling twice and failing to throw a TD in the big game.
2/8/2016 Jahri Evans, NO, G
The Saints have released Evans.

Analysis: The four-time All-Pro guard started for all 10 seasons since New Orleans drafted him out of Division II Bloomsburg in 2006.
2/8/2016 William Moore, Atl, S
The Falcons have released Moore, ending the starting safety's seven-year tenure with the team.

Analysis: Moore has served as one of Atlanta's starting safeties since 2010 and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2012. He's played in just 18 games over the last two seasons, however, and ended 2015 on injured reserve. Moore had two years left on a five-year deal signed in March 2013.
2/8/2016 Darryl Baldwin, Cin, T
Baldwin was signed by the Bengals on Monday.

Analysis: Baldwin didn't play in the NFL last season. Baldwin signed with Baltimore as a free agent from Ohio State last season. He played in one preseason game and was waived in the final preseason cuts. He also failed to get a contract from another team.
2/8/2016 Chykie Brown, Cin, CB
Brown was signed by the Bengals on Monday.

Analysis: Brown didn't play in the NFL last season. Brown has played in 54 games with six starts with the Ravens and the Giants since 2011. He started two playoff games for Baltimore during its Super Bowl championship season in 2012.
2/8/2016 Justin Durant, Atl, LB
The Falcons have released Durant.

Analysis: The veteran linebacker had two years left on the contract he signed with Atlanta last March, though most of the remaining money was not guaranteed. Durant recorded 82 tackles and one forced fumble while starting 12-of-13 games in his lone season with the Falcons.
2/8/2016 Riley Cooper, Phi, WR
The Philadelphia Eagles say they have released Cooper after six seasons.

Analysis: Cooper's best season came in 2013, when he had 47 catches for 835 yards and eight touchdowns. He played in half his team's offensive snaps this past season. Cooper was perhaps best known for his troublesome training camp in 2013, when he left camp for three days to deal with fallout after a video surfaced of him using a racial slur at an African-American security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert.
2/8/2016 LeSean McCoy, Buf, RB
McCoy is under investigation over the alleged assault of two off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia nightclub.

Analysis: Police say a fight broke out early Sunday over a bottle of champagne. They say four men punched, kicked and stomped an officer who was knocked to the ground. The second off-duty officer intervened with security guards. All were ejected from the club. Police say one officer had a broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb. The second officer was hospitalized with a possible skull fracture.
2/7/2016 C.J. Anderson, Den, RB
Anderson rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Analysis: Anderson capped a strong playoffs after running for 72 yards in each of the previous two games.
2/7/2016 Peyton Manning, Den, QB
Manning finished 13 for 23 for 141 yards in the Super Bowl, winning his second championship in possibly his final game.

Analysis: Manning would not say if he's decided to retire, although there's a strong possibility that he will go out on top.
2/7/2016 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Newton finished 18 of 41 for 265 yards, threw an interception and was sacked six times in a loss to Denver in Super Bowl 50.

Analysis: The NFL MVP was neutralized by the vaunted Denver defense as Carolina scored a season-low 10 points.
2/7/2016 Von Miller, Den, LB
Miller harassed Cam Newton from start to finish in the Super Bowl, forcing two fumbles, compiling 2 1/2 sacks and earning MVP honors while helping the Broncos beat the Panthers 24-10 in a showdown between a couple of shutdown defenses.

Analysis: Now comes the offseason and contract negotiations for Miller, someone the Broncos would probably love to lock up for the long term.
2/7/2016 Corey Brown, Car, WR
Brown left the Super Bowl after potentially suffering a concussion.

Analysis: The Panthers said he wouldn't return.
2/6/2016 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Newton has won The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player award in a landslide.

Analysis: The Carolina Panthers' All-Pro quarterback, who will lead his team in Sunday's Super Bowl against Denver, received 48 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who regularly cover the league. Fellow QBs Tom Brady, a two-time MVP, and Carson Palmer each got one vote. In his fifth pro season, Newton also earned Offensive Player of the Year. In 2011, he was the league's top offensive rookie.
