Giants are interested in bringing back impending free-agent S Stevie Brown.

Brown missed the entire 2013 season due to a torn ACL and then struggled in his return last year. The Giants still see talent in the veteran safety and would be interested in bringing him back on a team friendly deal. Analysis: David Kerr

Impending free agent Jerrel Jernigan has been told by the Giants he will not be re-signed.

Jernigan missed almost the entire 2014 season due to a foot issue, so the Giants felt as though they had seen enough. He has some talent, but has never really clicked in the NFL. It's likely that a team will take a flyer on him this summer, but his fantasy value is almost nonexistent. Analysis: David Kerr

Buccaneers have re-signed LB Danny Lansanah.

Lansanah saw the field for the Buccaneers quite a bit last season, making 81 tackles and three interceptions. He should fill the same role next season for Tampa Bay and could be solid late round value in IDP leagues. Analysis: David Kerr

Daniel Herron was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent.

Herron was a bright spot for the Colts down the stretch and in the playoffs and has now been tendered a contract. Given the state of Indianapolis' running back situation the past few years, the team is hoping that Herron can be heavily relied upon. His fantasy value is much higher in PPR leagues as he has proven to be a very good pass catcher out of the backfield. Analysis: David Kerr

Impending free agent Jacquian Williams has been told by the Giants he will not be re-signed.

A former starter with the Giants, Williams' tenure will end when he becomes a free agent next week. The four-year veteran made 74 tackles last season, but didn't completely live up to expectations with New York. He will surely find a starting gig with another team. Analysis: David Kerr

Free-agent DE Trent Cole is receiving interest from the Seahawks and 49ers.

Cole also has interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cole had 6.5 sacks last season and he could be a solid addition for a team in need of a veteran pass-rusher. Analysis: Colby Conway

Colts tendered a qualifying offer to restricted free-agent linebacker Jerrell Freeman on Thursday.

If another team signs Freeman, the Colts will receive a sound-round pick. Freeman has until April 24th to sign an offer sheet with another team. He led the team in tackles during the 2012 and 2013 seasons and was second last season. Freeman is a highly capable NFL linebacker who can help any team who needs a consistent tackler in their front seven. Analysis: Colby Conway

49ers and Aldon Smith have restructured his deal.

Smith was a monster for the 49ers in 2011 and 2012, but off-field incidents have kept Smith off the field of late. A suspension kept him off the field for most of 2015 and the 49ers want Smith to figure everything out. In his first two seasons, Smith totaled 33.5 sacks and was a game changer on the San Francisco defense. Analysis: Colby Conway

Antrel Rolle said on ESPN Radio that he's hitting the free agent market.

Rolle is coming off a season where he notched 87 tackles and three interceptions, so he is going to have plenty of suitors. It was reported that Rolle has been negotiating with the Giants, but he went to Twitter and denied that report. Nevertheless, he will be free to sign with any team that he chooses starting on Tuesday. Analysis: David Kerr

Packers signed CFL linebacker Josh Francis.

Francis has never played in the NFL and shouldn't be viewed as anything more than training camp depth for the Packers. Analysis: David Kerr

Devin McCourtey is high on the Eagles free agent list and the team will pursue him.

McCourty has said that he would like to remain with the Patriots, but is going to test free agency. This could possibly be a leverage move by McCourty, but at the end of the day, it's likely he will go to the highest bidder. Analysis: David Kerr

49ers announce they've signed WR Jerome Simpson to a two-year contract.

Simpson most recently played for the Minnesota Vikings and will now provide depth at wide receiver for the 49ers. San Francisco doesn't have a strong wide receiver corps, so it's possible that Simpson could see himself on the field quite a bit in 2015. Analysis: David Kerr

Panthers sign Greg Olsen to three-year, $22.5 million contract extension through 2018 season.

A nice extension for Olsen, who has been one of the more consistent tight ends in recent years. OIsen's new deal is worth $22.5 million, which is definitely a worthwhile investment for a player coming off an 80-catch, 1008-yard season. Analysis: David Kerr

Aaron Brewer and the Broncos have agreed to a four-year contract.

Brewer has been the Broncos' long-snapper since 2012 and was set to become a restricted free agent. Denver decided to give him an extension and he will now hold the job down for the next several years. Analysis: David Kerr

Chiefs have released LB Joe Mays.

Mays played just one season for the Chiefs and is now free to sign with another team. He recorded 17 tackles last season and also notched a fumble recovery in a reserve role. Analysis: David Kerr
