*Note: Free agency officially opens at 4 p.m. ET on March 14.
Matthew Slater to Re-Sign with Patriots
Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reported Tuesday special teams captain Matthew Slater will re-sign with the New England Patriots on a two-year deal.
The seven-time Pro Bowler has been with New England his entire career since it selected him in the 2008 NFL draft.
Jonathan Cooper to Sign with 49ers
On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers announced they signed guard Jonathan Cooper to a one-year contract in an effort to bolster their offensive line.
The North Carolina product entered the league as the seventh-overall pick of the 2013 draft and started 13 games for the Dallas Cowboys during the 2017 campaign.
Kai Forbath to Re-Sign with Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings reportedly agreed to re-sign kicker Kai Forbath on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Forbath has spent parts of the past two season with the Vikes. After making all 15 of his field-goal attempts in seven games as a replacement for Blair Walsh in 2016, Forbath made 32 of his 38 field-goal tries last season.
Although the 30-year-old had some issues on extra points with five misses on 39 attempts, his career field-goal percentage of 85.9 percent is eighth on the all-time list.
Ryan Grant to Sign with Colts
Wide receiver Ryan Grant and the Indianapolis Colts reportedly agreed to a deal Tuesday, according to NFL Network's James Jones.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Grant will sign a one-year contract worth $5 million.
Grant originally agreed to a four-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, but after a failed physical, the former Washington Redskins wideout will instead act as a complement to T.Y. Hilton in Indy.
Ramon Humber Re-Signs with Bills
The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday that linebacker Ramon Humber is returning to the team on a one-year deal.
Humber spent the past two seasons in Buffalo, and in 2017, he registered a career-high 89 tackles in 13 games, which included nine starts.
The 30-year-old veteran figures to provide outside linebacker depth behind the likes of Matt Milano and Lorenzo Alexander in 2018.
Brandon Copeland Signs with Jets
The New York Jets announced Monday that they signed linebacker Brandon Copeland.
Copeland spent 2015 and 2016 with the Detroit Lions, but missed the entire 2017 campaign due to a torn pectoral.
The 26-year-old will provide depth to the Jets' linebacker corps and contribute on special teams in 2018.
John Timu to Re-Sign with Bears
The Chicago Bears are reportedly set to re-sign linebacker and special teamer John Timu, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Timu has spent all three years of his NFL career with the Bears.
Last season, the 25-year-old racked up 16 tackles while appearing in 11 games and making a pair of starts.
Morgan Burnett to Sign with Steelers
Former Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett will reportedly sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
Burnett gained a ton of starting experience during his stint in Green Bay, and he stands to replace Mike Mitchell as a starting safety with the Steelers.
Josh Mauro to Sign with Giants
Defensive lineman Josh Mauro reportedly agreed to sign a deal with the New York Giants on Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Last season, Mauro made seven starts and registered 13 overall appearances for the Arizona Cardinals. He finished with 22 tackles and 1.0 sack.
The 27-year-old Mauro is a versatile player capable of playing both defensive end and defensive tackle, and he will provide some much-needed depth along the Giants' defensive line.
Lerentee McCray Re-Signs with Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Monday that they re-signed reserve linebacker and special teams standout Lerentee McCray.
In hist first season with the Jags in 2017, McCray appeared in 13 games, making 13 tackles and registering 1.5 sacks.
McCray is primarily a special teams contributor, but he adds some solid depth at linebacker as well behind the likes of Telvin Smith and Myles Jack.
Eric Ebron Signs 2-Year Deal with Colts
Tight end Eric Ebron will hope for a fresh start after signing a two-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, as the team announced Monday.
As Adam Schefter of ESPN reported, Ebron could make up to $15 million on the contract with incentives.
The 2014 first-round pick spent four years with the Detroit Lions but took a step back last season, totaling 53 catches for 574 yards. On the other hand, his four touchdowns were the second most of his career.
He will try to continue making an impact near the red zone with the Colts next season.
Marshall Newhouse Signs with the Bills
The Buffalo Bills added more offensive line depth by announcing the signing of Marshall Newhouse on a one-year deal Monday.
The 29-year-old tackle is well-traveled in his seven seasons in the NFL, with the Bills set to become his fifth team in the league. He spent 2017 with the Oakland Raiders but was released last week.
Newhouse started 14 games at right tackle last season, although he has also spent time at left tackle and guard in his career with the Packers, Bengals and Giants.
His versatility could be extremely valuable for a Bills unit that could replace several starters from last season.
Russell Bodine to Bills on 2-Year Deal
The Buffalo Bills filled a huge need at center by signing Russell Bodine to a two-year deal. The team officially announced the move Monday.
Bodine has started 64 straight games for the Bengals since entering the league in 2014 and the team was hoping to re-sign the free agent this offseason, per Paul Dehner Jr. and Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
However, the Bills were able to nab him on a multi-year contract.
He could potentially replace Eric Wood, who was forced to retire after last season due to injuries.
Mike Pouncey Signs 2-Year Deal with Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers announced Monday the signing of center Mike Pouncey on a two-year deal.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the deal is for $15 million, including $10 million guaranteed.
Pouncey was a first-round pick in the 2011 draft and has started every game he has played since then with the Miami Dolphins. He started all 16 games in 2017, anchoring an offensive line that otherwise had a lot of turmoil.
He also had three Pro Bowl selections in his career, but he was still released last week after the team requested he take a pay cut.
The 28-year-old center will now join a Chargers line that allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL last season.
Jarius Wright to Join Panthers on a 2-Year Deal
The Carolina Panthers added some much-needed depth at receiver with the addition of Jarius Wright, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Wright can reportedly make up to $3.5 million in incentives in his first season of the two-year deal. The deal also features a $2 million signing bonus.
The 28-year-old has spent his entire six-year career with the Minnesota Vikings, appearing in all 16 games in four of the last five seasons. He finished 2017 with 18 catches for 198 yards and two touchdowns.
Although Minnesota released him on Friday, Wright has a chance to earn even more playing time with the Panthers. Even after adding Torrey Smith, the receiving corps lacks established players to give Cam Newton help in the offense.
Orlando Scandrick Agrees to Two-Year Deal with Redskins
After nine years with the Dallas Cowboys, Orlando Scandrick is headed to the rival Washington Redskins.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the cornerback can make up to $10 million on the two-year deal.
Scandrick has been with the Cowboys his entire career, starting all 11 games he played in 2017. However, a back injury cut his season short, and he has missed 11 games over the past three seasons.
The 31-year-old requested a release and the Cowboys granted it on Saturday, per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.
He will now join the Redskins defense, hoping to replace the departed Kendall Fuller.
Cody Latimer Signs with Giants
Cody Latimer announced on Twitter Monday that he signed with the New York Giants. Terms of the deal are not yet known.
The receiver was a second-round pick in the 2014 draft by the Broncos, but has been a disappointment in the NFL with just 35 catches in four years. He is at least coming off his best season, finishing 2017 with 19 catches for 287 yards and two touchdowns.
He also competed on special teams with Denver.
While the Giants have solid depth at receiver when healthy, the 25-year-old still has plenty of untapped potential and could benefit from a change in location. He will also reconnect with receivers coach Tyke Tolbert, who moved from Denver to New York this offseason.
B.W. Webb to Sign 1-Year Deal with Giants
The New York Giants added depth to their secondary with the addition of B.W. Webb on a one-year deal Monday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The 28-year-old didn't see the field in 2017 despite spending time with the Bears and Browns.
His last playing time came in 2016 with the Saints, where he played 14 games and started seven. After that defense ranked dead last against the pass, Webb struggled to find another job.
However, the Giants have plenty of uncertainty at cornerback going into next season and Webb could potentially compete for a spot in the rotation.
Dominique Easley Re-Signs with Rams
Defensive end Dominique Easley and the Los Angeles Rams agreed to a one-year contract, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Easley missed the entire 2017 season due to a torn ACL.
Jon Bostic to Sign with Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers and linebacker Jon Bostic reportedly agreed to a two-year deal on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Bostic spent last season as a starting linebacker for the Indianapolis Colts, and he registered a career-high 97 tackles.
With Ryan Shazier set to miss the entire 2018 season due to injury, Bostic is likely to start alongside Vince Williams at inside linebacker for the Steelers.
Kevin Pierre-Louis, Jets Agree to 2-Year Deal
The New York Jets and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year, $6 million deal on Saturday, according to the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta.
Pierre-Louis, 26, spent last season with the Kansas City Chiefs after suiting up for the Seattle Seahawks between 2014-2016.
In 14 appearances a year ago, Pierre-Louis tallied 35 total tackles and a pair of pass breakups while playing 22.8 percent of the Chiefs' total defensive snaps. He also contributed 249 snaps on special teams.
Maurice Alexander Signs with Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks announced Saturday that they have signed safety Maurice Alexander.
Terms of the agreement were not initially disclosed.
Alexander started the first four games of the 2017 campaign for the Los Angeles Rams, but he was cut prior to Week 5. The 2014 fourth-round pick watched the remainder of the season from home.
Over his first four years in the NFL, Alexander has compiled two interceptions, three sacks, five pass breakups and a fumble recovery.
Vinny Curry Agrees to 3-Year Deal with Buccaneers
Defensive end Vinny Curry and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth up to $27 million on Saturday, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.
Curry's contract includes $11.5 million guaranteed for injury.
The 29-year-old spent the first six years of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, and he capped off his tenure in the City of Brotherly Love with a Super Bowl 52 win over the New England Patriots.
As a rotational edge rusher last season, Curry posted three sacks and a forced fumble. However, the numbers don't tell the full story considering he collapsed the pocket on a consistent basis.
Curry will now join a Bucs team looking for a boost after it finished last season with a league-worst 22.0 sacks.
Kyle Wilber Joins Oakland Raiders
Wilber spent the five six years of his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft.
He usually worked as a reserve linebacker and special-teams ace in Dallas. His role should remain pretty much the same for the Raiders.
Matt Barkley Signs with Cincinnati Bengals
Veteran quarterback Matt Barkley announced Saturday morning on Twitter he reached an agreement with the Cincinnati Bengals. Geoff Hobson of the team's official website reported it's expected to be a two-year deal.
Barkley is joining his fifth NFL organization, including two stints with the Arizona Cardinals, since the Philadelphia Eagles selected him in the fourth round of the 2013 draft. He's compiled a lackluster 63.7 passer rating across 11 career regular-season appearances.
Tank Carradine Agrees to Join Raiders
The Oakland Raiders and defensive end Tank Carradine reportedly agreed to terms on a contract Friday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Carradine, a former second-round pick out of Florida State, racked up 5.5 sacks over his first four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
He was limited to eight games last year because of a high-ankle sprain. When he was active, Carradine played 214 snaps as a rotational piece of the 49ers' front seven—good for a shade under 27 snaps a game.
Justin Pugh Agrees to 5-Year Deal with Cardinals
Offensive lineman Justin Pugh and the Arizona Cardinals agreed to terms on a five-year, $45 million contract on Friday, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.
Pugh, 27, spent the last five seasons with the New York Giants.
During that half-decade stretch, the Syracuse product spent time at both tackle and guard. However, he's at his best on the interior of the line and should fit in nice as the Cardinals attempt to devise robust protection schemes for new quarterback Sam Bradford.
Jaron Brown, Seahawks Agree to Contract
Jaron Brown is staying in the NFC West, but it won't be with the Arizona Cardinals.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Brown and the Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms on a contract Friday.
The 28-year-old was relatively quiet during his first four years in the desert, but he flashed some serious potential last season despite the Cardinals' instability under center.
All told, Brown finished the 2017 campaign with career highs in receptions (31), yards (477) and touchdowns (four).
Tyrann Mathieu Agrees to 1-Year Deal with Texans
The Houston Texans fortified their secondary in a big way Friday night.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Texans and safety Tyrann Mathieu agreed to terms on a one-year, $7 million deal after the Honey Badger was cut by the Arizona Cardinals.
One of the most versatile defensive backs in football, Mathieu has piled up 11 interceptions, 41 pass breakups and four sacks dating back to his rookie season in 2013.
Last year, Mathieu finished with two picks, seven pass breakups, a forced fumble, one sack and 74 total tackles across 16 games.

The Detroit Lions are reportedly adding a Super Bowl champion to their backfield.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Lions and running back LeGarrette Blount agreed to terms on a one-year, $4.5 million deal on Friday.
Blount, 31, spent last season as the Philadelphia Eagles' early-down back. Appearing in all 16 games, the three-time Super Bowl champion steamrolled his way to 766 yards and two touchdowns while ripping off 4.4 yards a carry.
The Lions will gladly take that production considering they finished last season with the NFL's worst rushing offense.
Rams Re-Sign John Sullivan
The Los Angeles Rams are keeping a key piece of their offensive line in the fold.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Rams re-signed center John Sullivan to a two-year, $15 million deal on Friday.

Bears Match Packers' Offer Sheet for Kyle Fuller

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears opted to match the Packers' four-year, $56 million offer sheet for the 26-year-old cornerback on Friday. The deal includes $18 million guaranteed.
Fuller missed the entire 2016 season with a knee injury, but he bounced back in a big way last year.
Appearing in all 16 games, Fuller emerged as a legitimate No. 1 corner and finished the season with two interceptions, a career-high 22 pass breakups and 68 total tackles.
Matt Tobin, Patriots Agree to 1-Year Deal
The New England Patriots and offensive lineman Matt Tobin reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal Friday, according to ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.
Tobin, 27, has made 21 career starts—all of which came with the Philadelphia Eagles between 2014-2016.
Tobin didn't start a single game for the Seattle Seahawks last year. In fact, he only played 81 total snaps as a backup in the Pacific Northwest.
Following Nate Solder's departure, Tobin figures to be in the mix for starting duties at left tackle with the Patriots.
Jeremy Hill Agrees to Sign with Patriots
The New England Patriots are reportedly taking a flier on former Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill, according to ESPN's Field Yates.
Hill scored 29 touchdowns over his first three years with the Bengals, but he didn't make any noise in 2017.
Appearing in just seven games because of an ankle injury, the 25-year-old mustered 37 carries for 116 yards.
He'll now join a Patriots backfield that already features veterans Rex Burkhead, James White and Mike Gillislee.
Adrian Clayborn Signs with Patriots
The New England Patriots and defensive end Adrian Clayborn agreed to terms on a contract Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Clayborn's deal is worth $12 million over two years.
A 2011 first-round draft pick, Clayborn broke out last season with the Atlanta Falcons. He finished with a career-high 9.5 sacks, including six in one game against the Dallas Cowboys.
The 29-year-old should offer a major boost to a Patriots front that already ranked tied for seventh last season with 42 sacks.
Michael Crabtree Heads to Ravens on 3-Year Deal
Crabtree's contract is worth $21 million total, including $11 million guaranteed, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He can reportedly earn up to $20 million over the first two years.
The Oakland Raiders released Crabtree on Thursday following three years with the franchise.
During that stretch, Crabtree racked up 232 receptions for 2,543 yards and 25 touchdowns. In 2017, the Texas Tech product experienced something of a down year as he managed 58 catches for 618 yards and eight scores.
Raiders Add Rashaan Melvin on 1-Year Deal
Former Indianapolis Colts cornerback Rashaan Melvin reportedly agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million deal with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bolts and Caleb Sturgis agreed to terms Friday on a two-year deal.

A five-year veteran, Sturgis has converted 81 percent of his field goals dating back to 2015, including 26-of-36 between 40-49 yards. He's also 13-of-24 from at least 50 yards out.

Former Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright reportedly agreed to join the Oakland Raiders on Friday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken.

The 30-year-old compiled one interception, five pass breakups and 42 total tackles in his one season with the Bills.
Prior to his short stay in Buffalo, Wright spent four years with the San Diego Chargers and two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
He'll now try and help lift up a Silver and Black secondary that finished the 2017 campaign ranked 26th against the pass.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Pennel and the Jets agreed to a three-year deal Friday that is worth up to $12 million.
