Report: 'Stunner' if Dolphins don't trade Jarvis Landry
The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports that it would be a "stunner" if the Miami Dolphins don't trade wide receiver Jarvis Landry in the coming weeks.
The Dolphins are reportedly "open" to signing Landry long-term, but a trade seems most likely with the kind of money the wideout's seeking. The Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are all listed as suitors for the 25-year-old's services.
On 161 targets, Landry tallied 112 catches for 987 yards and 9 touchdowns this past season.
Rams likely to move on from Trumaine Johnson
With the Los Angeles Rams trading for cornerback Marcus Peters, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team will be moving on from corner Trumaine Johnson.
The Rams and Johnson couldn't agree on a long-term deal after he played on the franchise tag for two straight seasons. The 28-year-old will now head into free agency as one of the top corners on the market. Peters will take his spot on the outside.
Johnson finished 2017 as Pro Football Focus' 68th-ranked corner. He put together 57 tackles, 14 passes defensed and 2 interceptions in 16 games.
Chiefs reportedly finalizing deal to send Marcus Peters to Rams
The Kansas City Chiefs are trading defensive back Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.
According to Schefter, the two sides are in the "final stages of talks" and "the trade is expected to be agreed to as early as today," although things won't become final until the new league year begins on March 14. Trumaine Johnson is expected to leave in free agency, and it looks like Peters will take over as the Rams' new number-one corner. The 25-year-old leads all corners in interceptions (19) since entering the league in 2015.
Peters recorded 46 tackles (42 solo) with 5 interceptions, 9 pass deflections, 4 forced fumbles, and 1 touchdown last season.
Panthers could use franchise tag on Graham Gano
The Carolina Panthers could use their franchise tag on kicker Graham Gano, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Rapoport said it's "more likely" that Carolina uses the tag on Gano than guard Andrew Norwell, who is also set to become a free agent. Tagging the 30-year-old kicker would run the team about $4.9 million for this season.
Gano hit 29-of-30 field goal tries in 2017. In 6 years with the team he has a conversion rate of 85.3%.
Seahawks unlikely to tag Sheldon Richardson
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Seattle Seahawks are unlikely to place the franchise tag on defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson.
The Seahawks would rather retain Richardson on a long-term deal. At 27, he's set to become a free agent and would warrant $14.5 million for one year under the tag. Seattle could certainly hope that he doesn't have much of a market given his past character issues and suspensions.
In his first season with the Seahawks, Richardson accounted for 27 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception. He was the 27th-best defensive lineman, according to Pro Football Focus.
Adam Vinatieri re-signs with Colts on one-year deal
Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri re-signed to a one-year contract.
No surprises here, as Vinatieri will return for his 23rd NFL season and 13th in a Colts uniform. The 45-year-old kicker sits just 57 points behind Morten Andersen on the All-Time scoring list, and as long as he stays healthy, Vinatieri should have no problem taking the top spot in 2018. He's averaging 113.0 points per season for his career.
Vinatieri made 29-of-34 field goals (85.3 percent) and 22-of-24 extra points (91.7 percent) in 15 games for the Colts last season.
