Over the past two seasons, Jones' 23.5 sacks were only outdone by Khalil Mack (26.0) and Miller (24.5). In other words: Jones got paid.

The surprise was Jordan Spieth, who chose to take two weeks off before he plays the Dell Match Play, Shell Houston Open and the Masters. "I guess I'm certainly glad I took his advice".

It was the 24th time in 32 games they led by double digits. "We were ready to get back out on the court".

Luke Joeckel didn't pan out after the Jaguars took him with the second overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft and he'll try for a better outcome as a low-profile free agent signing in Seattle. The Seahawks allowed 41 sacks on Wilson in 2016, a slight improvement from the numbers the previous year, but not by much. The Seattle Seahawks have apparently found themselves an offensive linemen.
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's close relationship with Fasano appears to have played a big part in the tight end leaving the Titans .

Gilmore appeared in 15 games last season for the Bills , and overall has 68 games (66 starts) since joining the Bills in 2012, a 10th overall pick in the 2012 draft, coming out of SC. If he signs his first-round tender, Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler is now slated to make $3.91 million in 2017.

Everton are to prioritise securing the future of Ross Barkley with Ronald Koeman, the manager, confirming talks are planned with the midfielder over a lucrative new contract.

None of the moves seem to be of the eye-popping variety, but it is important to recognize the position that the 49ers are in - and that Free Agency is a good way to compliment your roster, not build it. The 49ers look to be building an offense with which head coach Kyle Shanahan and company can at least compete - something the franchise has struggled to do since Jim Harbaugh was relieved from his coaching duties in 2014.
With a number of kickers still playing deep into their 40s-Adam Vinatieri just finished his age-44 season-Dawson could continue to play for another couple of years. The Cardinals brought back their starting center on Thursday and struck a deal with a veteran kicker. At age 42, Dawson is little more than a stopgap solution for a team that had trouble in special teams last season.
Hyde has spent all four of his seasons in the National Football League in Green Bay, making 33 starts out of 63 total games. Hyde received a five-year, $30.5 million deal with $14 million guaranteed.

The offensive line was arguably the biggest issue facing the Broncos and Elway has wasted little time in upgrading it.

But there is still no indication over when the former goalkeeper will arrive in Scotland to seal the deal. This game is one that could put us clear of them and we move on.

The Eagles, with young quarterback Carson Wentz , would be an interesting destination for Jeffery.

The Chicago Bears are expected to sign quarterback Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter . Cutler joined the Bears after being traded from the Denver Broncos in 2009. The bottom line is this: the Bears overpaid for Glennon, but in today's National Football League, that's the price for starting quarterbacks now. Jackson is one of five players since the 1970 merger with 26 or more career touchdowns of 50-plus yards, joining Jerry Rice ...

But the Texans rolled the dice and gave Osweiler that four-year deal that included $37 million. The Houston Texans appear to be clearing room to try and add Tony Romo. According to Schefter, the move will open up $10 million in salary cap space and save $16 million in cash for the Texans. Last year, he was traded to Houston, where he threw for more than 2,900 yards with 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.
Should the German ace manage to surmount that obstacle and beat one of the Big 4 - as he has done well before, we could see an interesting contest here at Indian Wells.

The Bears are also expected to draft a quarterback in the upcoming National Football League draft. But remove Cutler's stats, and he's not all that great. Glennon started the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 2013 season, but he was relegated to the bench after the team drafted Jameis Winston the following year.
Bouye now looks to be the Eagles first target with the free agency tampering period now underway. With Stephon Gilmore having past issues with Head Coach Doug Marrone, many pegged Bouye as the Jaguars guy.

Paying eight figures annually for a guard seems a tad absurd, but nothing the Browns are doing in their lengthy rebuilding process has been conventional.

The Miz and Daniel Bryan have had a freaky feud that started at the WWE Draft when Daniel Bryan made it clear that he wanted the WWE Intercontinental belt, just not the wrestler who was holding it at the time.
Now, having Jay Cutler could be a viable option for the 49ers to try and recover from a dismal performance last season. With that signing going through, Cutler no doubt wanted out just as badly as the Bears wanted to move on from him. The most interesting part of Rapoport's tweet for me was the assertion the Bears will still look to draft a quarterback in the draft. A number of teams were reportedly pursuing quarterback Mike Glennon in the lead up to the start of the free agency period, ...
Dickerson covers the Chicago Bears for ESPN's NFL Nation. Mike Glennon, Colin Kaepernick , and Brian Hoyer are the three best options in free agency this year.

It's not surprising that Seahawks brass is indicating they might not be as interested in signing the seven-time Pro Bowler. Adrian Peterson wants to go to a contender.
