re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
Good thing we were able to sign Jared Cook or this might be us...

Patriots signed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year contract.

ASJ was easily the best tight end left on the free-agent market. New England made a push for Jared Cook following Rob Gronkowski's retirement, but Cook opted to stay committed to the Saints. For the Patriots, Seferian-Jenkins joins Matt LaCosse, Jacob Hollister, and Stephen Anderson at tight end. ASJ posted a miserable 11-90-1 line for the Jaguars in five games last season before landing on I.R. with a core injury.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
Cornerback P.J. Williams agreed to a new deal with the New Orleans Saints last week, and details of the contract have finally emerged.

The Saints gave Williams a one-year deal worth $2.25 million, and all of the money is guaranteed.

The deal includes a $1.4 million signing bonus as well as an $850,000 base salary, and the base salary is guaranteed even if the Saints cut him for injury, skill or salary cap related reasons.

NFL Network initially reported the deal as being worth $5 million last week, so there might be some added incentives in the contract, though those details are not currently available.

Either way, this is clearly a prove-it deal for Williams after he saw his most extensive action in 2018. A third-round pick in 2015, Williams became the primary nickel cornerback for most of last season after Patrick Robinson suffered a season-ending ankle injury, and Williams finished the year with 53 tackles, one sack, one interception, nine passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

Williams and Robinson will compete for that role again in 2019. Williams, though, could begin the season with a suspension after a January arrest for allegedly driving while intoxicated.

I think my guess was $2.5 mil tops, maybe with some incentives.

A little surprised it's all guaranteed, but for how little it is total he's great PRob insurance and can play the nickel well.
