Date Player
4/21/2017 Chris Thompson, Was, RB
The Washington Redskins re-signed Thompson to his tender contract. Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams, but Thompson did not sign with anyone else since being tendered by the Redskins.

Analysis: Last season, Thompson played in all 16 games for the first time in his career, posting career highs in rushing attempts (68), rushing yards (356), rushing touchdowns (three), receptions (49) and receiving yards (349) while matching his career high with two receiving touchdowns.
4/20/2017 Jon Bostic, Ind, LB
The Indianapolis Colts signed Bostic on Thursday.

Analysis: Bostic has played four seasons in the NFL, most recently with Detroit in 2016. The 6-foot, 245-pounder has started 18 of 40 games and has 140 tackles. He had 55 tackles as a rookie with Chicago in 2013 and followed that season with a career-high 84 tackles in 2014. The Bears then traded him to New England in 2015, where he played primarily on special teams before landing with the Lions.
4/20/2017 Khalil Mack, Oak, DE
Mack had his fifth-year contract option exercised by the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, presumably keeping him with the team through the 2018 season.

Analysis: The AP Defensive Player of the Year for 2016, Mack had sacks in eight straight games during one stretch last season and finished with 11 - the All-Pro edge rusher's presence such that opponents sent multiple blockers his way but still didn't stop one of the NFL's elite defenders. He was part of 73 tackles, had his first career interception and touchdown, and forced five fumbles while recovering three.
4/17/2017 Jason McCourty, Ten, CB
The Titans have officially released McCourty, ending the cornerback's eight-year association with the team.

Analysis: McCourty had already announced the move, which clears $7 million off the Titans' books for next season, last week on his Twitter account. The 29-year-old should draw plenty of interest on the open market, albeit at likely a lower salary.
4/17/2017 Branden Albert, Jax, T
Albert was not present when the Jaguars began voluntary workouts Monday.

Analysis: NFL.com reported that the recently acquired offensive tackle is seeking a new contract. Albert, who's started 118 games over nine pro seasons, is slated to be Jacksonville's left tackle after being acquired from the Dolphins last month in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick.
4/17/2017 Kawann Short, Car, DT
Short and the Panthers have agreed to a five-year contract worth a reported $80.5 million. The mega-deal includes $35 million in guaranteed money, according to NFL.com.

Analysis: The Panthers made retaining Short a top priority after placing the franchise tag on him in February, and they've succeeded in keeping one of the league's best interior rushers in the fold. The 28-year-old recorded 11 sacks and three forced fumbles during a breakout 2015 campaign and followed up with six sacks and 12 tackles for loss while starting all 16 games last season.
4/14/2017 Nick Marshall, NYJ, CB
Marshall has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2017 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance enhancers.

Analysis: Heading into his third pro season, Marshall is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games before serving the suspension. A college quarterback at Auburn, Marshall was converted to cornerback by Jacksonville in 2015. He joined the Jets last season and has mostly been used as a kick returner.
4/13/2017 Johnathan Hankins, Ind, DT
The Indianapolis Colts signed Hankins to a three-year, $30 million deal, ESPN reported on Thursday.

Analysis: Hankins recorded 43 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble while playing in all 16 games last season with the New York Giants. The 25-year-old played with Jason Pierre-Paul, Olivier Vernon and Damon Harrison on a Giants' defense that ranked third against the run last season.
4/11/2017 Dan Skuta, Jax, LB
The Jaguars have released Skuta.

Analysis: The 30-year-old Skuta has appeared in 112 games, including 26 with the Jaguars. Skuta signed a five-year contract worth $20.5 million in 2015 that included a little more than $8 million guaranteed. He totaled 55 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in two seasons in Jacksonville. His role was marginalized after the drafting of linebacker Myles Jack last year.
4/11/2017 Dion Jordan, Sea, DE
The Seahawks have signed Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick from the 2013 draft.

Analysis: Jordan played just two seasons for the team in 2013 and 2014 and has not played since Dec. 28, 2014 after multiple suspensions for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Jordan was eligible to return from suspension in 2016 but arrived at training camp with an unreported knee injury. He was inactive for all 16 games last season. The former Oregon standout defensive end projects as a strongside linebacker in the Seahawks' base defense, per ESPN.com.
4/11/2017 Chris Smith, Cin, DE
The Jaguars have traded Smith to the Cincinnati Bengals for a conditional pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Analysis: A fifth-round selection in 2014, Smith was behind Yannick Ngakoue and Dante Fowler on the depth chart and unlikely to play much in the final year of his contract. Smith has appeared in 19 games in three seasons, totaling 19 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks. Smith played in six games in 2016 and was inactive for the other 10 while rookie Ngakoue emerged as the team's top pass rusher.
4/11/2017 Junior Galette, Was, LB
Galette was arrested Friday night and charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders after getting into a fight and running away during a spring break festival in Biloxi, Miss.

Analysis: Galette is entering his third season with the Redskins after missing each of the last two years following Achilles tendon tears in both legs. He spent the first five seasons of his career from 2010 to 2014 with the Saints, totaling 88 tackles and 31 1/2 sacks in 64 games. Most of those numbers were compiled in the 2013 and 2014 campaigns, when he totaled 12 and 10 sacks respectively.
4/10/2017 T.J. Yates, Buf, QB
The Bills have signed Yates to back up Tyrod Taylor.

Analysis: Yates did not play a snap in his one and only season with Miami last year. Overall, he's played in 18 regular games and has a 4-3 record in seven starts, all during four seasons with Houston. He also went 1-1 in starting two playoff games for the Texans during his rookie season in 2011.
4/10/2017 Tracy Porter, Chi, CB
The Bears are releasing Porter to save $3.6 million in cap space.

Analysis: The move comes one year after the Bears signed Porter to a three-year, $12 million deal. He spent the past two seasons in Chicago. The 30-year-old played in 30 games, with 28 starts, over the past two years but battled knee injuries last season. In 2016, he still played in all 16 games and recorded 48 tackles, two interceptions and nine passes defended.
