Date Player
4/28/2017 Gary Barnidge, Cle, TE
The Cleveland Browns have released Barnidge, one of their most productive players the past four years.

Analysis: Barnidge made 134 catches for 1,655 yards over the last two seasons. He signed a three-year extension with the Browns during his 2015 Pro Bowl season, when he had 79 receptions for 1,043 yards and nine touchdowns. Cleveland wants to get younger at the tight end. The Browns traded a second-round pick to Green Bay and moved into the first round to select Miami tight end David Njoku with the No. 29 overall pick on Thursday night.
4/26/2017 Jahri Evans, GB, G
Evans signed with the Packers on Wednesday.

Analysis: The six-time Pro Bowler joins the Packers following 11 seasons in New Orleans, where he played 169 regular-season games since being drafted in the fourth round in 2006. The 169 games are the most played by an active NFL offensive lineman in that span.
4/26/2017 Geronimo Allison, GB, WR
Allison has reached a deal with prosecutors to settle a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Allison will pay $330.50 to settle the charge after it was amended Tuesday to an ordinance violation. WLUK-TV reports he also will be required to complete community service.

Analysis: Allison emerged in the last couple of weeks of the regular season with eight catches for 157 yards and a score while filling in when Randall Cobb was hurt. He could still face discipline under the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
4/25/2017 Adrian Peterson, NO, RB
Peterson has reportedly agreed to a two-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Analysis: Peterson has spent his entire 10-year NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings, surpassing 1,000 yards rushing in a season seven times and 2,000 yards once. However, he played in only three games last season before being sidelined by a knee injury.
4/21/2017 Chris Thompson, Was, RB
The Washington Redskins re-signed Thompson to his tender contract. Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams, but Thompson did not sign with anyone else since being tendered by the Redskins.

Analysis: Last season, Thompson played in all 16 games for the first time in his career, posting career highs in rushing attempts (68), rushing yards (356), rushing touchdowns (three), receptions (49) and receiving yards (349) while matching his career high with two receiving touchdowns.
4/20/2017 Jon Bostic, Ind, LB
The Indianapolis Colts signed Bostic on Thursday.

Analysis: Bostic has played four seasons in the NFL, most recently with Detroit in 2016. The 6-foot, 245-pounder has started 18 of 40 games and has 140 tackles. He had 55 tackles as a rookie with Chicago in 2013 and followed that season with a career-high 84 tackles in 2014. The Bears then traded him to New England in 2015, where he played primarily on special teams before landing with the Lions.
4/20/2017 Khalil Mack, Oak, DE
Mack had his fifth-year contract option exercised by the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, presumably keeping him with the team through the 2018 season.

Analysis: The AP Defensive Player of the Year for 2016, Mack had sacks in eight straight games during one stretch last season and finished with 11 - the All-Pro edge rusher's presence such that opponents sent multiple blockers his way but still didn't stop one of the NFL's elite defenders. He was part of 73 tackles, had his first career interception and touchdown, and forced five fumbles while recovering three.
4/17/2017 Jason McCourty, Ten, CB
The Titans have officially released McCourty, ending the cornerback's eight-year association with the team.

Analysis: McCourty had already announced the move, which clears $7 million off the Titans' books for next season, last week on his Twitter account. The 29-year-old should draw plenty of interest on the open market, albeit at likely a lower salary.
4/17/2017 Branden Albert, Jax, T
Albert was not present when the Jaguars began voluntary workouts Monday.

Analysis: NFL.com reported that the recently acquired offensive tackle is seeking a new contract. Albert, who's started 118 games over nine pro seasons, is slated to be Jacksonville's left tackle after being acquired from the Dolphins last month in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick.
4/17/2017 Kawann Short, Car, DT
Short and the Panthers have agreed to a five-year contract worth a reported $80.5 million. The mega-deal includes $35 million in guaranteed money, according to NFL.com.

Analysis: The Panthers made retaining Short a top priority after placing the franchise tag on him in February, and they've succeeded in keeping one of the league's best interior rushers in the fold. The 28-year-old recorded 11 sacks and three forced fumbles during a breakout 2015 campaign and followed up with six sacks and 12 tackles for loss while starting all 16 games last season.
