AFC EAST

The bills are trading and making two first round drafts.

At No. 9, Buffalo could be an enticing trading partner for a team looking for a quarterback or looking to be a top-tier defensive line man sliding down the board. If the bills decide to outperform the best player available, their number 9 ( worth 1

,350 points) is about the same as Raiders & # 39; Nos. 24 and 27 select (1 420) on the traditional trading chart. General Manager Brandon Beane said at the Senior Bowl that the bills don't have to be in the top 10, so expect Buffalo to discuss the deal. – Mike Rodak

Miami releases QB Ryan Tannehill and replaces him with a rookie.

Tannehill's time with the dolphins comes to an end and the easy fix would be to shop for or sign Nick Foles, Joe Flacco or Teddy Bridgewater. Instead, dolphins pass GM Chris Grier on that option, fall in love with the quarterback in the 2019 draft and choose him with the intention of being the starter. Kyler Murray would make a lot of sense in that situation because Miami loved Baker Mayfield last year. – Cameron Wolfe

The patriots upload at the receiver.

Similar to 2007, when they were traded for Randy Moss and Wes Welker, New England will bring in some recipients after a season where they were limited at the position. If it is early in the draft, in the free agency or via trade, the cabinet will be well-maintained. – Mike Reiss

Jetsna lacks Le & # 39; Veon Bell in free agency, but …

… rebound by signing Tevin Coleman as part of a backfield review. They will cut Isaiah Crowell, a mediocre free agent signing from last year and say goodbye to Bilal Powell, 30, their longest ten players meeting the free agency. They will enter the season with Coleman, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon as their three biggest backs. – Rich Cimini


AFC NORTH

Ravensna signs Mark Ingram in free agency.

Baltimore has done his best with patchwork to run back in the past four seasons – from Justin Forsing to Terrance West to Alex Collins to Gus Edwards – but the team needs a proven feature in building a crime against Lamar Jackson. During offensive coordinator Greg Roman, veteran runners such as Frank Gore and LeSean McCoy have flourished. Ingram is the kind of sustainable, physical and effective back (4.5-year career average) that would be the perfect fit in Baltimore's crime. – Jamison Hensley

The Bengals shake up linback corps, and this can mean separating roads with Vontaze Burfict.

The linebackers were a disaster in 2018. The three starting line jackets at the beginning of the season never played together due to suspensions and injuries. The biggest question mark is Burfict, who has not played an entire season this year and has had an alarming number of concussions. With a new coaching staff in place, it makes sense that Bengals can move on from Burfict and make sure to draw a linebacker.

Dan Graziano explains why he likes Cleveland to come out on top in AFC North during the 2019 season.

Brown's release linebacker Jamie Collins.

Collins has been good with Browns, but his contract pays him to be good. He has not met that level, and he will pay $ 22 million in salary in the next two seasons. Cutting him would cost Brown's just $ 2.5 million in 2019 salary head, and give Cleveland $ 9.25 million in pay-cap room. – Pat McManamon

Steelers deals Antonio Brown as soon as possible after he seriously considers releasing him directly.

Trade Brown for a high draft is the cautious flight, but a deal cannot be completed until March 13, and the team may be ready to continue now after the news of a household conflict has arisen this week. Releasing him with a designation after June 1 would save about $ 15 million in wage capital. It is very tempting for an organization that needs to restore its standard of tolerance after Brown's repeated struggle. – Jeremy Fowler


AFC SOUTH

Le & # 39; Veon Bell calls Houston home in 2019.

The Texans have a Pro Bowl quarterback and receiver in Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins and a defense led by JJ Watt. Bell, who did not play down for Pittsburgh in 2018, will raise Houston's offense and allow Watt and the defense more time on the sidelines while pushing the Colts for top leak in AFC South. – Mike Wells

Director-General Chris Ballard shakes the notion that he does not spend much on free agents when he …

… uses some of Colts & # 39; $ 120 million in pay – cap space to sign a pass-rusher to raise Indy's defense. Who should pass-rusher be? Kansas City's Dee Ford, Houston's Jadeveon Clowney and Dallas & DeMarcus Lawrence are the best free-agent pass-rushers. Ballard signs the one who doesn't get franchise-tagged.

Todd McShay has QB Dwayne Haskins to go No. 6 to the giants of his NFL Mock Draft 2.0, but can predict a law deal to catch him earlier.

The Jaguar is about landing its highest quarterback in the draft.

It would be in the nature of the Jaguar to share draft picks and be willing to pay the $ 25 million franchise amount it would take to land Nick Foles, especially since they have $ 16.5 million in dead money with Blake Bortles. The Jaguar will sign a veteran quarterback and move up because they land Dwayne Haskins. Tom Coughlin still believes in winning with running games and defenses (and the patriots showed you can win a title that way), and that's how they will ease playing with a rookie QB. – Mike DiRocco

Sat & # 39; Darius Smith reunites with Dean Pees in Tennessee.

The Titans desperately need a veteran influence player to improve their passrush. Smith had 8.5 bags, 25 QB hits and 10 tackles for the Ravens last season. Pees was on Smith's day back in 2015 in Kentucky. The two still have a close relationship. Expect Smith to retrieve a significant contract from Titans and become their free agent signing. – Turron Davenport


AFC WEST

The Broncos fills up the quarterly schedule.

Denver will enter the free quarterback agency, use a premium draft pick at a lookout and keep Case Keenum until it sorts things out for the season. The Broncos do not have a quarterback on their roster as they worked out, and their recurring starter (Keenum) has a year left on their dealings after a season when he saw something overwhelmed. Missing Paxton Lynch, a 2016 first-class Denver traded for choice, is a mistake that sets the Broncos back for years, waiting for him to come and win the job. It's time to deal with the quarterback what they've done elsewhere: commit resources to pack it with potential starters and see who has the moxie to win. – Jeff Legwold

Chiefs lose center Mitch Morse and cornerback Steven Nelson to free agency.

Kansas City last season signed two internal offensive linemen in Austin Reiter and Cam Erving to help prepare for Morse's resignation. The managers may have to choose between Nelson and their second startback, Kendall Fuller, whose contract is promised at the end of next season. – Adam Teicher

Chargers draw up a quarterback.

Bolts GM Tom Telesco has not prepared a quarterback since he chose Brad Sorensen in the seventh round of the 2013 draft, his first year of charger. Philip Rivers is perhaps the most sustainable quarterback in the NFL and is playing high-level, but he is 37 years old and chargers have to start developing a young signal-caller to eventually replace him. – Eric D. Williams

The Raiders make a legitimate run on Antonio Brown.

You said "fat", right? What would be bolder than the "Parts Unknown" Raiders, who have four picks among the 36 first selections of the NFL draft and need a No 1 wideout, all-in goes for a well-known product in the temperament All-Pro receiver? Jon Gruden loves veterans, and maybe he loves Brown even more, calls the nine-year-old pro the "hardest" player he has ever seen in practice. "I've seen Jerry Rice," Gruden said in December. "I've seen a lot of good. But I put Antonio Brown at the top." – Paul Gutierrez


NFC EAST

Cowboys sign Dak Prescott for a long-term extension.

Maybe it's not so bold considering Jerry Jones has been saying Prescott cowboy's quarterback of the future. But how about a six-year extension worth $ 168 million that includes $ 65 million in guarantees? Is it brave enough? Prescott has helped Cowboys twice in his three seasons, played in the Pro Bowl twice in three years and has shown that he has the moxie to handle difficult situations when the team needs him the most.

Max Kellerman says his case that if Nick Foles finds another team, the giants and folds would be good destinations for him.

The Giants act to get quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the draft.

Yes, they finally acknowledge that time has come to really find Eli Manning's successor, and are willing to do what is necessary to land their goal. In this case, it is Haskins, Ohio State Signal Caller. The cost will be their first round choice plus more draft capital, possibly a future first round choice. GM Dave Gettleman looked in 2004 when Ernie Accorsi did what was necessary to get Manning. He does what is necessary to get the top QB in this draft. – Jordan Raanan

Eagles are preparing a defensive ruler in the first round in April.

CEO of football operations Howie Roseman described this defensive liner conference class as "historic" and with Brandon Graham on his way to free agency and others like Chris Long and Michael Bennett at dusk of their careers, Philly – Tim McManus

Redskins lose linebacker Preston Smith and broad receiver Jamison Crowder into free agency.

Redskins has expressed a desire to keep both players. But there has been a small movement towards signing either. Due to the importance of pass-rushers, Smith will have a strong market considering that he is only 26 years old, has a good length and has shown that he can be a sustainable all-round player. His price tag can reach around $ 14 million a year, which would be great for anyone with 24.5 career bags – and for a team of about $ 20 million in space space right now. They would love to keep Crowder and he would be cheaper to keep than Smith. But he could retrieve at least $ 8 million a year on the open market, and it will be difficult for Redskins to match. – John Keim


NFC NORTH

Bears takes back kicker Robbie Gould.

After Cody Parkeys battles, there is no way to get him back even though his 3.5 million dollars in salary and bonuses are guaranteed for 2019. Gould, Bears kicker from 2005-15, will be a free agent on 49ers do not redraw or tag him before March 13th. Gould still makes his home in Chicago, so it would be a natural fit. – Rob Demovsky

Lions focus strongly on defense, both in draft and free agency.

Last season was about rebuilding the offensive line and the running game (which has been partly achieved). Detroit will need to revise its crime again to suit which new co-ordinator Darrell Bevell wants to run, but gamblers are needed at all levels of defense. So don't be surprised if the lions are trying to sign a strong corner opposite Darius Slay and bring in a high-level player like a pass-rusher. Who these players are left to see, but in free agency Lions can be bigger players for any bigger names than they usually are. – Michael Rothstein

GM Brian Gutekunst puts a strong pressure on Le & # 39; Veon Bell.

The new coach Matt LaFleur's Shanahan / McVay-based crime works best when it revolves around a dominant springback, and Packers has none. They have two capable ball carriers in Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, but neither is a franchise change back. Bell is. He will be expensive, but at this stage of Aaron Rodger's career he could use a dominant springback to take some of his pressure off. The packs came up short in their quest last year by Khalil Mack. Boy art does everything he can to not come short on Bell. – Rob Demovsky

Vikings trade cornerback Xavier Rhodes.

Mike Zimmer is likely to fight tooth and nail against losing one of his starring players. But Minnesota's best chance of strengthening its weakest link – the offensive line – can come from cutting into an area where the Vikings are in the deep direction and have valuable leverage. Due to the most difficult season of its career, Rhodes will be 29 before the 2019 campaign and reach $ 13.4 million against wage capital. The Minnesota crop of cornerback talent is in a good spot with Trae Waynes, Mackensie Alexander, Mike Hughes (who comes from an ACL injury) and the early rise of subordinate free agent Holton Hill. Trading Rhodes now and knowing they are in a good place with the rest of their corners, could give the Vikings the opportunity to get more talent for the O line. – Courtney Cronin


NFC SOUTH

The Falcons make Julio Jones league's highest paid broad recipient $ 20 million a year.

GM Thomas Dimitroff already said that Jones's contract would be treated with two years and $ 26.4 million left. Jones' current average of $ 14.25 million ranks 11th among recipients, with Odell Beckham Jr. that fills the list of $ 18 million a year. – Vaughn McClure

Left Thanks Matt Kalil will be released.

With a title after June 1, the pawns are just shy of $ 7.3 million from the payroll head of a player who missed the last season with knee injury and was just average in 2017. The Panthers have many needs they could fill in the use of the hat space. They also have the opportunity to move the right tackle Taylor Moton on the left and re-sign free agent Daryl Williams, who was the right starter pack in 2017 before the damage ended his 2018 season. Kalil's five-year, $ 55.5 million deal was a mistake from the beginning. – David Newton

The Saints add a well-known slot recipient.

Tight end is probably a clearer need in New Orleans. But in one way or another, the Saints have to add another reliable fit prisoner after their crime fizzled down the stretch. And the list of on-going free agents at slot recipients – including Golden Tate, Randall Cobb, Adam Humphries, Jamison Crowder and Cole Beasley – is very exciting than the narrow choices at the narrow end. – Mike Triplett

The Bucs releases DeSean Jackson after failing to find a trading partner.

This should not come as a shock to fans, but it will be the biggest development this offseason, if they do not share paths with Gerald McCoy as well (it is a real opportunity if they cannot restructure their deal or trade him ). Jackson has become increasingly frustrated with his lack of chemistry with Jameis Winston. It will be tempting for new coaches Bruce Arians to try to make this relationship work, but a clean break may be the best. The reason why this has not already happened is Bucs believes there is trading value there. Separating ways with Jackson will save Buc's $ 10 million, which is very necessary given that they enter 2019 with about $ 15 million in lock room. – Jenna Laine


NFC WEST

The cardinals deal with No. 1 total choice.

While there are plenty of defensive options for Arizona to take on No. 1, with a new coach in Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals would be better suited to shop back to the middle of the top 10 and stockpicks that Kingsbury can use to boost what was the league's worst crime in 2018. While they are already slated to have about nine or 10 picks, they can increase it by three or four more this year by shopping back, and use those who choose to substantially reinforce one or both sides of the ball. – Josh Weinfuss

The Rams signs coach Sean McVay for a contract extension.

Ramsna wrote McVay to a five-year deal when they made him the youngest head coach in modern NFL history in 2017. Three seasons remain on that deal, but after climbing back-to-back division titles and taking Rams to Super Bowl in year 2, you can bet on Rams will want to make sure they keep McVay around – and keep him well-paid – for the foreseeable future. – Lindsey Thiry

49ers sign security Earl Thomas.

For the second consecutive year, Niners will add a previous section of "Legion of Boom" after taking Richard Sherman last year. Sherman has already said he is willing to help recruit Thomas if needed, and while Thomas should not have a shortage of rhythms, the fit of San Francisco is as obvious to him as it was to Sherman in 2018. Thomas would immediately give stability Niners clearly missed during the secondary season while adding another valuable leader for a young defense. – Nick Wagoner

The Seahawks sign less than half of their 14 players scheduled to become unlimited free agents.

Frank Clark seems to be the only safest among the group to be back next season – it's on a franchise or multi-year deal. Earl Thomas and Sebastian Janikowski are probably goners, and Seahawks will not enter the bidding war to hold K.J. Wright, Dion Jordan, D.J. Fluker or J.R. Sweezy, considering their ages or injury stories. Last offseason, Seahawks signed so many free agents that their add-ons compensate for their losses, resulting in no compensation picks for 2019. They will take a more conservative approach this year with an eye on getting younger and strengthening their draft capital. – Brady Henderson
