Date Player
2/18/2017 Cameron Wake, Mia, DE
The Dolphins signed Wake to a two-year contract extension Saturday that runs through the 2018 season.

Analysis: The 35-year-old Wake is coming off a Pro Bowl season, one year removed from an Achilles injury. He had 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and one interception this past season, helping the Dolphins reach the playoffs.
2/16/2017 Charley Hughlett, Cle, C
The Browns signed Hughlett to a six-year contract extension Thursday. Hughlett has been with the team since 2014, when he joined Cleveland's practice squad and was eventually signed to the active roster.

Analysis: Hughlett had been scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent this offseason before signing through 2022. Hughlett is entering his third NFL season out of Central Florida. He was originally signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2012.
2/16/2017 Branden Albert, Mia, T
The Miami Dolphins are expected to release two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert, according to multiple reports on Thursday.

Analysis: Albert will not be the lone big-name casualty as the Dolphins are expected to part ways with veteran defensive end Mario Williams and defensive tackle Earl Mitchell, the Miami Herald reported.
2/15/2017 Ryan Clady, NYJ, T
New York Jets have released Clady after just one season in which he played only nine games because of a shoulder injury.

Analysis: Clady was due $10 million next season - with a $1 million roster bonus due Wednesday - that made his return to New York under that contract unlikely. Clady, acquired last offseason from Denver to replace the retired D'Brickashaw Ferguson, suffered a torn rotator cuff in Week 3 at Kansas City and played through it for a few weeks before being placed on injured reserve.
2/15/2017 Bene Benwikere, Cin, CB
The Bengals signed Benwikere on Wednesday.

Analysis: The 6-foot cornerback was Carolina's fifth-round draft pick in 2014. He started 14 games in three seasons with Carolina, including four last year before he was released. He finished the season on the practice squads of Miami and Green Bay. Benwikere has two interceptions, three fumble recoveries and one sack in his career.
2/13/2017 Aldon Smith, Oak, LB
Smith could be in more trouble after being investigated for a domestic incident over the weekend in San Francisco, according to multiple reports. TMZ Sports reported that police were called early Saturday morning to a home in San Francisco, and Smith does own a house in that city. Smith was interviewed by police, which took a statement from the woman. No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.

Analysis: Smith is currently serving a suspension for violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. The violations include two DUIs while he was with the San Francisco 49ers. Smith played in 2015 with the Raiders before he was suspended. Smith was expected to be reinstated in March, but another arrest would put that in jeopardy.
2/13/2017 Geronimo Allison, GB, WR
Allison has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Allison's attorney, Brian Maloney, entered the plea on his client's behalf Monday. WLUK-TV reports Allison was not in court and was not required to be there. The charge against Allison stems from a traffic stop in September in Manitowoc County. The next hearing is set for April 25.

Analysis: Allison emerged in the last couple of weeks of the regular season with eight catches for 157 yards and a score while filling in when Randall Cobb was hurt. The undrafted rookie free agent out of Illinois played with a hamstring injury in the Packers' 44-21 loss to Atlanta in the NFC championship game.
2/13/2017 Rashad Jennings, NYG, RB
The Giants have cut Jennings in a cap-related move.

Analysis: Jennings joined the Giants as a free agent in 2014, after four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and one with the Oakland Raiders. In three years, he played in 40 games and rushed for 2,095 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also had 94 receptions for 723 yards and two scores.
2/13/2017 Victor Cruz, NYG, WR
The Giants released Cruz in a salary-cap move, according to multiple reports Monday.

Analysis: The 30-year-old Cruz finished the 2016 season with just 39 catches for 586 yards and one touchdown in 15 games after coming back from major knee surgery. Cruz would have counted $9.4 million against the team's salary cap in 2017. The Giants will free up $7.5 million in cap space with his release, according to ESPN.
2/10/2017 Mike Harris, Min, G
The Minnesota Vikings released Harris on Friday.

Analysis: Harris missed the entire 2016 season because of a medical condition the team has not divulged but has threatened his career.
2/10/2017 Brandon Fusco, Min, G
The Minnesota Vikings released Fusco on Friday.

Analysis: Fusco started 14 games in 2016 at right guard.
2/10/2017 Ryan Fitzpatrick, NYJ, QB
Fitzpatrick's contract with the New York Jets has been voided, as expected, making the veteran quarterback a free agent. Fitzpatrick re-signed with the Jets last July on a one-year, $12 million deal. Technically, the contract was for two years, but contained language in which the second year would be automatically voided five days after the Super Bowl - meaning, Friday - if Fitzpatrick remained on the roster.

Analysis: Because his $10 million bonus was prorated over two years to help with the salary cap last year, Fitzpatrick will cost the Jets $5 million in "dead money" this year. The 34-year-old Fitzpatrick will be free to sign with another team. While he could still re-sign with the Jets, it appears his up-and-down tenure in New York is done after two seasons.
2/10/2017 Kory Lichtensteiger, Was, C
Lichensteiger has announced his retirement after nine NFL seasons.

Analysis: Injuries have limited the 31-year-old to eight games over the past two seasons, including a calf issue that forced him to IR for half of the 2016 campaign. A fourth-round pick of Denver in 2008, Lichtensteiger started 75 games for the Broncos and Redskins as a center and left guard.
2/9/2017 Blair Walsh, Sea, K
The Seahawks have signed Walsh as a potential replacement for free agent Steven Hauschka.

Analysis: It would be ironic if Walsh ends up as the Seahawks' kicker, as his miss of a 27-yard field goal attempt cost his former Vikings team a win against Seattle in the 2015 playoffs. The 27-year-old had an erratic five-year tenure in Minnesota that ended with his release in November. Walsh hit 12 of 16 field goals and missed four of 19 PAT tries in nine games last season.
2/9/2017 Carson Palmer, Ari, QB
Palmer is coming back for a 15th NFL season. The 37-year-old quarterback said in a statement he is "ready to get back to work and prepare for the 2017 season.

Analysis: There had been speculation about Palmer and receiver Larry Fitzgerald for next season. Fitzgerald said last week he was returning.
2/9/2017 D'Qwell Jackson, Ind, LB
Jackson has been released by the Colts after three seasons with the team.

Analysis: Jackson recorded 78 tackles and one sack in 12 contests for the Colts this past season before serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
2/9/2017 Sam Shields, GB, CB
The Green Bay Packers have released Shields, who was never cleared from the concussion protocol after getting hurt in the season opener.

Analysis: A seven-year veteran, Shields joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2010. He played in 80 regular-season games, having entered the 2016 season as Green Bay's top cornerback. Shields was three years into a four-year, $39 million deal signed in 2014.
2/8/2017 Ben Jacobs, Car, LB
The Panthers have re-signed Jacobs to a two-year contract.

Analysis: Jacobs doesn't play on defense but has made a mark on special teams, leading the team with nine coverage tackles in 2014 and recording eight the following year. The 28-year-old restricted free agent was released by Carolina in September but returned to play the final four games of this past season.
2/7/2017 Josh McCown, Cle, QB
McCown has been released by the Browns. McCown went 1-10 in starts over two seasons with the Browns, who cut him Tuesday before he was due a $750,000 roster bonus in March.

Analysis: McCown battled injuries throughout his stint with Cleveland. The 37-year-old got a concussion in his debut for the Browns in 2015 and twice broke his collarbone. And while he didn't produce on the field, McCown was a valuable leader for the Browns, who are still searching for their franchise quarterback. McCown passed for 3,209 yards and 18 touchdowns with the Browns. He said at the end of last season that he wants to keep playing.
2/6/2017 Tyvis Powell, Cle, S
The Browns have claimed Powell off waivers from the Seahawks.

Analysis: A Cleveland-area native, Powell made Seattle's 2016 roster as an undrafted free agent and appeared in eight games, recording three tackles on special teams.
