  • According to Alex Marvez, the NFL has confirmed that RB Jonathan Dwyer is free to sign with a team, but there is discipline “pending” after his guilty plea for misdemeanor disorderly conduct.


  • Matt Maoicco reports that the 49ers have spoken to free-agent CB Chris Cook about returning, but they haven’t had any recent conversations.


Mike Florio reports that Ndamukong Suh‘s new contract includes guarantees beyond the 2017 season.

  • On the fifth day of the 2020 league year, $18.36 million becomes fully guaranteed.


  • Michael Rothstein considers the idea of the Lions trying to sign free agent DE Greg Hardy to be “very, very, very, very unlikely.
  • Rothstein fully expects the Lions to sign a cornerback, but admits the longer they wait, the more likely Rashean Mathis is back for another season.


  • Rob Demovsky writes that it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Packers get a long-term deal done with DL Mike Daniels before the start of this season.
  • Demovsky considers the odds of the Packers picking up OLB Nick Perry‘s fifth-year option to be unlikely.
  • Demovsky doesn’t rule out Clay Matthews seeing time at inside linebacker again next year, but adds that it will likely come down to what they do in the draft.


  • Aaron Wilson reports that Coastal Carolina OL Chad Hamilton has a private workout this morning with the Texans.
