Karlos Williams Headshot

Steelers signed Karlos Williams to a reserve/future contract.

Added 6 hours ago Source
Karlos Williams, when not suspended and when in shape, was an excellent NFL running back. The Steelers are hoping that they can whip him back into shape during this offseason, while he will start out 2017 serving the final four games on his substance abuse suspension. A lot is going against him, but at least he's getting another shot.
Jamie Collins Headshot

Jamie Collins signed a 4-year $50 million extension with $26 million guaranteed.

Added 8 hours ago Source
Collins put together an excellent 2016 campaign with both the Browns and the Patriots and earned this money. He ended his season with 112 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions. The Browns need as much talent as they can get so they can finally rebuild properly and this is a good start. Collins will be an excellent IDP option heading into 2017, now that he'll take over the reigns as the Browns defensive leader.
Dez Bryant Headshot

Dez Bryant will replace Julio Jones in the Pro Bowl.

With the Falcons advancing to the Super Bowl, that means Julio Jones was needed to be replaced and Bryant is a great candidate. Dez finished the season playing 13 games while catching 50 passes for 796 yards to go along with his eight touchdowns.
Kirk Cousins Headshot

Kirk Cousins has replaced Matt Ryan on the Pro Bowl roster.

Added 15 hours ago Source
Kirk Cousins threw for nearly 5,000 yards and 25 touchdowns during the 2016 NFL season but for some reason the Redskins are still hesitant to sign him to a mutli-year deal. He had a completion percentage of 67 percent and even rushed for four touchdowns. Matt Ryan is of course out of the Pro Bowl as he will be playing in the Super Bowl.
Anthony Barr Headshot

Anthony Barr is replacing Vic Beasley in the Pro Bowl.

Added 15 hours ago Source
It is safe to say that Anthony Barr took a step back in his progression as a linebacker when his coach Mike Zimmer replied "All" when asked about areas in which Anthony Barr needs improvement. He had a breakout 2015 season but his game was lacking in his third-year as a pro especially struggling in pass coverage. Barr also had little to no impact as a pass rusher. Barr is signed through 2017 with a club option for 2018. Beasley will not be able to participate as his Atlanta Falcons will be playing in the Super Bowl.
Ryan Kerrigan Headshot

Washington has officially promoted linebackers coach Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator.

Added 16 hours ago Source
Manusky has a history with Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan being the defense coordinator for the 49ers while he was in the front office. He has also been the DC for the Chargers and Colts. Manusky worked under Joe Berry as the Redskins outside linebackers coach last season and we saw huge improvements from former second around pick Trent Murphy. He has his work cut out for him with one of the most under talented units in the NFL.
Kirk Cousins Headshot

Redskins have promoted quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator.

Added 16 hours ago Source
With Sean McVay vacating the offensive coordinator position in Washington to become head coach of the Rams, the Redskins stayed within their organization to find a replacement. Cavanaugh carries a wealth of NFL coaching experience, as he has held a position in the league with various teams every year since 1992. Cavanaugh has served as the Redskins' quarterbacks coach for the last two seasons.
James White Headshot

James White played 29 snaps on Sunday versus Pittsburgh while Dion Lewis played just 17.

Added 16 hours ago Source
This does not necessarily mean that White was more effective than Lewis, as neither of the dual-threat backs managed much production against the Steelers. The Patriots played from ahead throughout Sunday's AFC Championship game, which resulted in LeGarrette Blount shouldering the load out of the backfield for the offense.
Sam Shields Headshot

Sam Shields says he is still having headaches stemming from his Week 1 concussion but that he wants to keep playing next season.

Added 17 hours ago Source
This is obviously an unfortunate development for Shields, as lingering effects from a concussion lasting this long is cause for plenty of concern. Hopefully the seven-year veteran can fully overcome this issue during the offseason and resume his NFL career. The Packers are reportedly assessing Shields' future with the organization now that their season has come to an end.
