  • ESPN’s Mike Wells expects the Colts to cut DT Art Jones due to the amount of time he has missed to injury in his three years with the team.
  • Wells notes that Jones has only appeared in 17 out of 48 regular season games with Indianapolis and already took a pay cut last offseason.


  • James Walker of ESPN expects the Dolphins to cut DE Mario Williams to save $8.5 million in cap space. He is entering the final year of a two-year, $17 million contract.


  • Tim McManus of ESPN writes that the Eagles are in “desperate need” for an outside receiver and mentions Kenny Stills, Terrelle PryorAlshon Jeffery or DeSean Jackson as top-tier impending free agents that Philadelphia could target.
  • Additionally, McManus thinks the Eagles will pursue a “complementary” receiver after the first wave of free agent additions.


  • Mike Reiss of ESPN believes the Patriots should make re-signing CB Malcolm Butler one of their top priorities this offseason since he is set to be a restricted free agent.
  • Reiss does not think placing a first-round tender on Butler will be enough to secure him for 2017 and could see a team with a low first-round pick signing his offer sheet.


  • Paul Kuharsky of ESPN could see the Titans trading out of the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft since they do not have a second-round pick at this time.
