Aaron Murray Headshot

Chiefs shopping QB Aaron Murray.

When the Chiefs decided to bring in Nick Foles, that put Aaron Murray's job on the hot seat. Kansas City also has Tyler Bray in the mix as well. Murray was a fifth round draft pick back in 2014 out of Georgia and could get some interest as a low-cost backup. Teams could just wait it out because he'll likely be waived if a deal cannot be done.

Bjoern Werner Headshot

The Jaguars have released former Colts first-round pick Bjorn Werner.

Werner played in just 10 games for the Colts in 2015, and did not start once. Jacksonville is not exactly brimming with talent on defense, and if Werner couldn't catch on there, his chances of finding a new team are not great.

D.J. Reader Headshot

Texans rookie nose tackle D.J. Reader was evaluated and cleared for a potential concussion under the NFL concussion protocol.

Reader, a fifth-round pick out of Clemson, is the backup, and perhaps heir apparent to Vince Wilfork. Reader has a chance to be part of Houston's defensive line rotation right away now that the concussion is behind him.

Sebastian Janikowski Headshot

Sebastian Janikowski will remain the Raiders' starting kicker in 2016.

Janikowski was 21st in fantasy scoring among kickers last season, and while an improved offense would likely help his production, there is little reason to draft Janikowski in most leagues. Janikowski made 21 of 26 field-goal attempts in 2015 and 38 of 39 extra point tries.

Ryan Griffin Headshot

Ryan Griffin's chances of making the final roster received a strong endorsement from head coach Dirk Koetter.

Mike Glennon's status as Jameis Winston's backup appears safe, and the Buccaneers will likely carry three quarterbacks to begin the season. Griffin could be insurance in case Glennon walks in free agency after the season.
