re: Free Agency is now OPEN!! Officially 2019 NFL League Year!!!
2019 Free Agent TE's per Walter Football. They don't list Eric Ebron...he must be staying with the Colts.

I really don't see a legit #1 TE left besides Jared Cook. ASJ & Eifert should be a lot cheaper, but they also come with much bigger question marks. Not really sure what the smart move is. I really wanted Jesse James or C.J. Uzomah.

01 - Jared Cook, TE, Raiders. Age: 32.
02 - Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Jaguars. Age: 26.
03 - Jesse James, TE, Steelers. Age: 25. Signed with Lions (4 years, $25 million; $11 million guaranteed)
04 - Nick Boyle, TE, Ravens. Age: 26. Re-signed with Ravens (3 years, $18 million)
05 - Tyler Eifert, TE, Bengals. Age: 28.
06 - James O'Shaughnessy, TE, Jaguars. Age: 27.
07 - Luke Stocker, TE, Titans. Age: 31.
08 - Jeff Heuerman, TE, Broncos. Age: 26.
09 - Tyler Kroft, TE, Bengals. Age: 26. Signed with Bills (3 years, $18.75 million)
10 - Charles Clay, TE, Bills. Age: 30. Signed with Cardinals (1 year, $3.25 million)
11 - C.J. Uzomah, TE, Bengals. Age: 26. Re-signed with Bengals (3 years, $18 million)
12 - Darren Fells, TE, Browns. Age: 33.
13 - Eric Tomlinson (RFA), TE, Jets. Age: 27.
14 - Neal Sterling, TE, Jets. Age: 27.
15 - Dwayne Allen, TE, Patriots. Age: 29. Signed with Dolphins (2 years, $7 million)
16 - A.J. Derby, TE, Dolphins. Age: 27.
17 - Jermaine Gresham, TE, Cardinals. Age: 31.
18 - Neal Sterling, TE, Jets. Age: 27.
19 - MarQueis Gray, TE, Dolphins. Age: 29.
20 - Demetrius Harris, TE, Chiefs. Age: 28.

3 players that I like after the first few days of free agency...

WR Dontrelle Inman - Solid #2 that shouldn't be overly expensive.
DT Corey Luiget - Low risk/high reward kind of signing.
S Tre Boston - After Earl Thomas & Ha Ha Clinton-Dix sign their deals.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns are "feeling good" about their chances to sign free agent Earl Thomas.

The Browns traded FS Jabrill Peppers to the Giants in the Odell Beckham trade and now have a hole on the back end of their defense. What better way to fill it than signing arguably the top defensive free agent left on the market. Thomas' market has been quiet thus far in a loaded safety class, but things might be coming together for Thomas to join the star-studded Browns squad.

I concur. TE will be the most blatantly obvious draft need if we don't sign a free agent. I could see us using a 2020 pick to trade up & take our target if that ends up being the siuation.

I'd rather not pay Cook & Eifert is the definition of boom or bust. Hopefully we make the right decision.

Looks like most TE's are getting around $4.5-6m/year, how does that fit with our cap space situation?

#Redskins are releasing DL Stacy McGee, source says. @TomPelissero had heard a few days ago they were trying to trade him.

The #Redskins are going to release LB Zach Brown, source said. They shopped him and multiple teams expressed interest, but couldn't strike a deal. Should sign quickly now that he's free. A @pff favorite.

He would be a damn good value pickup if we needed a starting MLB. I wish teams would start releasing starting TE's & #2 WR's.

Raiders agreed to terms with WR Tyrell WIlliams, formerly of the Chargers.

Williams' market never really developed, and the Raiders were the lone team connected to him from the start. Big and fast at 6'4/205 with 4.40 wheels, Williams will stay in the AFC West and team up with Antonio Brown and Jordy Nelson in the Raiders' new three-wide set. Nelson figures to spend much of his time in the slot with Brown and Williams outside. After playing third or fourth fiddle with the Chargers, Williams will probably fight with Nelson for scraps behind alpha dog Brown. As is always the case with Williams, he'll have some big weeks here and there but is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy weapon outside of best ball formats.

re: Free Agency is now OPEN!! Officially 2019 NFL League Year!!!
Not sure how good he is, but could be a decent backup OT if the price is discounted.

Falcons released RT Ryan Schraeder.

This was the expected move after the Falcons splurged on offensive linemen this offseason, re-signing RT Ty Sambrailo before then adding LG James Carpenter and RG Jamon Brown on multi-year deals. Schraeder is the odd man out two years after signing a five-year extension. The Falcons can clear $6.45 million against the cap if they make Schraeder a post-June 1 cut. The soon-to-be 31-year-old will likely latch on somewhere else.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns are shopping contract-year DE Emmanuel Ogbah.

The former second-round pick is entering the final year of his rookie deal. This isn't the first time we've heard Ogbah's name in trade rumors, as he was part of the initial rumored package for Odell Beckham. The Browns don't seem willing to commit to him long-term and just acquired DE Olivier Vernon from the Giants as well to play opposite Myles Garrett. Ogbah has yet to develop into a consistent pass rusher with just 12.5 sacks through 40 career games.

@AdamSchefter: Chiefs released five-time Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry. Had Berry been on KC's roster Friday, $7.25 million of his salary would have become full...
