7/22/2016 Omar Bolden, Chi, S
The Bears terminated the contract of Bolden on Friday.

Analysis: Bolden, who signed with Chicago in March, appeared in 56 games with one start over four seasons with the Broncos, playing mostly on special teams. He had been Denver's punt returner before sustaining a knee injury in January. Bolden was limited to nine games last season because of injuries.
7/22/2016 Arthur Jones, Ind, DT
Jones was suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2016 season Friday for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Analysis: Jones, entering the third season of a five-year, $33 million contract, missed all of last season due to an ankle injury. He will be eligible to rejoin the Colts on Oct. 3.
7/22/2016 Jonathan Krause, Phi, WR
The Eagles released Krause on Friday. He played two games for Philadelphia last season and caught two passes for 11 yards.

Analysis: Krause was an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt, and he had previously been a member of the practice squads of the Browns and Patriots.
7/22/2016 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Elliott's former girlfriend has filed a police report in Columbus, Ohio accusing the rookie of physically assaulting her while sitting in the driver's seat of a parked car.

Analysis: Elliott has publicly denied the allegations, as well as the accuser's claim that the couple lived together. Though he has not been arrested or charged, the former Ohio State star could potentially face discipline after the NFL investigates the incident.
7/22/2016 Adam Hayward, Was, LB
The Redskins have released Hayward, a former captain on special teams.

Analysis: Hayward's two-year tenure in Washington was marred by injuries, as he missed all of last season with a torn ACL and broke his leg with five games left in the 2014 campaign. The 32-year-old has played in 118 games over eight seasons with the Redskins and Tampa Bay.
7/22/2016 Le'Veon Bell, Pit, RB
Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, according to multiple reports.

Analysis: ESPN reported that Bell's violation comes from a missed drug test and not a failed one. The 2014 All-Pro is expected to have his appeal heard before the start of the season and will miss the first four games if not overturned. Bell rushed for 1,361 yards and added 854 receiving yards during a breakthrough 2014 campaign but played in just six games last season. He was suspended the first two games and missed the final eight after injuring his knee in November.
7/21/2016 J.J. Watt, Hou, DE
Watt underwent back surgery this week and is expected to be on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list when the Texans start training camp July 31.

Analysis: NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported that the expected recovery time for the operation is six to eight weeks, while NFL Media's Mike Garafolo said the timeframe could be up to 10 weeks. The Texans kick off their season in eight weeks, on Sept. 11 at home against the Bears.
7/21/2016 Ray Rice, Bal, RB
Rice, out of football since his well-publicized domestic abuse incident at the end of the 2013 season, said in USA Today that he plans to donate his entire salary should a team sign him.

Analysis: Rice, 29, played six seasons for the Baltimore Ravens, rushing for 6,180 yards and 37 touchdowns. The three-time Pro Bowl pick was jettisoned by the Ravens when a video was released showing Rice punching his then-fiancee in an elevator at a New Jersey casino. He was suspended by the NFL - that ban was later overturned in arbitration - and has never found work in the league since.
7/21/2016 Matt Spaeth, Pit, TE
The Steelers released Spaeth on Thursday after the veteran tight end failed a physical. He is recovering from offseason knee surgery and did not recover in time to be ready for training camp, which opens next week.

Analysis: Spaeth spent seven of his nine seasons in the NFL with the Steelers, who selected him in the third round of the 2007 draft. Utilized mostly as a blocking tight end and backup to Heath Miller, Spaeth has 55 receptions for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns in his career and helped the Steelers to the 2009 Super Bowl.
7/21/2016 Luke Marquardt, Det, T
The Lions signed Marquardt on Thursday.

Analysis: Marquardt has yet to play an NFL game despite joining two teams after being an undrafted rookie out of Azusa Pacific. He began his NFL career with San Francisco in 2013 but missed the campaign after refracturing the foot that caused him to miss his final college season. Marquardt joined the Jets in April but was released.
7/21/2016 Josh Gordon, Cle, WR
Gordon, who is eligible to apply for reinstatement to the NFL on Aug. 1, met with Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday to discuss a potential return.

Analysis: The NFL rejected Gordon's most recent plea for reinstatement in April after he failed a league-administered drug test. The oft-troubled wideout was suspended all of last season and 10 games in 2014 for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Gordon led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards after playing in 14 games in 2013.
7/21/2016 Eugene Monroe, Bal, T
Monroe has announced his retirement after seven NFL seasons.

Analysis: The 29-year-old failed to catch on with another team after being released by Baltimore last month, though he cited concerns over his long-term health as the primary reason for ending his career. The eighth overall pick of the 2009 draft by Jacksonville, Monroe started 90 games with the Jaguars and Ravens, who acquired the Virginia product in a trade in October 2013.
7/20/2016 Amini Silatolu, Chi, G
The Bears signed Silatolu on Wednesday.

Analysis: Silatolu started 28 of the 34 games he appeared in over four seasons with the Panthers. Silatolu was mostly a backup last season and played in nine games before tearing the ACL in his left knee.
7/20/2016 Quanterus Smith, Det, DE
The Detroit Lions Smith to a contract Wednesday.

Analysis: Smith played in 15 games during the 2014 season for the Denver Broncos and made 11 tackles. He was on practice squads last season with the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars.
7/20/2016 Corey Tindal, Cin, CB
Tindal was waived by the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, seven days after the rookie was robbed and assaulted at gunpoint during a poker game. The 24-year-old signed with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent on May 8.

Analysis: Tindal absorbed two blows to the head from the barrel of the semi-automatic pistol by the thief at around 1 a.m. inside a Super 8 Motel in Huntington, W. Va., according to the Cabell County Sheriff's Department, via the Huntington Herald-Dispatch. Tindall played three seasons with Marshall before being offered a contract to try out at rookie mini-camp in May.
7/19/2016 David Amerson, Oak, CB
The Raiders have signed Amerson to a four-year extension through the 2020 season.

Analysis: Claimed off waivers from Washington in September, Amerson proved to be a steal after starting 12 games for the Raiders and setting a franchise record with 26 passes defensed. The three-year veteran added a career-high four interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown in the season finale at Kansas City.
7/19/2016 Mike Jenkins, Ari, CB
The Cardinals have signed Jenkins to an undisclosed contract.

Analysis: Jenkins has started 68 games over eight NFL seasons and made the Pro Bowl with Dallas in 2009. The former first-round pick, who had five passes defensed and made five starts with Tampa Bay last season, will compete with Justin Bethel to start opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson.
7/18/2016 Nelson Agholor, Phi, WR
Philadelphia's top prosecutor says no charges will be filed against Agholor following an investigation into allegations of a sex assault at a strip club.

Analysis: District Attorney Seth Williams said Monday there was insufficient evidence to warrant any charges. Police had received an allegation that Agholor was involved in a sex assault June 9 at the Cheerleaders Gentlemen's Club. The 23-year-old Agholor played at Southern California and was a 2015 first-round draft pick for the Eagles.
7/18/2016 Stedman Bailey, LA, WR
Bailey will join West Virginia's staff as a student assistant coach. He'll also enroll as a full-time student to complete his bachelor's degree in multidisciplinary studies.

Analysis: Bailey was shot twice in the head while sitting in a car with family in November back home in Miami. Last month the Los Angeles Rams placed him on the reserve non-football injury list. Bailey says while his playing career isn't over, the opportunity to return to WVU gives him more time to heal. Bailey played at West Virginia from 2010-12, compiling 3,218 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns.
7/18/2016 Nate Ebner, NE, S
Patriots special teamer Ebner has been named to the USA rugby men's team for Rio.

Analysis: Ebner was kept under contract by the Patriots while training with the rugby squad at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. He was a sixth-round pick by New England out of Ohio State in 2012.
