Wendell Smallwood Headshot

Wendell Smallwood will play more of a role on special teams following the release of Josh Huff.

Added 11/04/16 10:39 am (EST)   Source
Wendell was one of four active Rb's for the Eagles last week, and had his first carry that went for negative five yards and a fumble. With the dismissal of Huff, Smallwood is expected to play more on special teams. He had one return last week for 23 yards. Look for him to receive at least one more opportunity to produce on special teams this week.
C.J. Spiller Headshot

Spiller signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday.

Added 10:13 am (EST)
Though he's just 29 years old, the former No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft has settled into the journeyman phase of his career since his breakout 2012 campaign with the Bills, during which he picked up a career-high 1,244 yards on 6.0 yards per carry. Following his exit from Buffalo after the 2014 season, Spiller has had abbreviated stints with the Saints, Seahawks and Jets, finding little success at any stop. The Chiefs will likely bring Spiller to training camp with the hope that he can still offer some value as a third-down back or returner, but even if he's able to win a spot on the 53-man roster, he likely won't see enough touches to approach fantasy relevance in most leagues.
Nick Folk Headshot

Folk was released by the Jets on Thursday.

Added Yesterday 4:08 pm (EST)
Folk was the Jets kicker for the past seven seasons. For his career he's converted 81.3 percent of his field goals, including 27 or 31 in 2016. It appears the Jets cut ties with Folk to free up some salary cap room, but it remains unclear who'll be their kicker in 2017. Folk is free to sign with any team.
Alterraun Verner Headshot

Verner will be released by the Buccaneers on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Added Yesterday 3:55 pm (EST)
Verner would have been owed $6.5 million in 2017. He saw a reduced workload in 2016 compared to his first two seasons in Tampa Bay, recording only 16 tackles compared to 76 and 56 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. A big reason for this regression was the emergence of rookie Vernon Hargreaves, who took over as the starting corner opposite Brent Grimes last season and racked up 76 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble. Verner still has value as a defender, and should find himself on an NFL roster come September.
Breno Giacomini Headshot

Giacomini (back) was released by the Jets on Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Added Yesterday 3:53 pm (EST)
Giacomini spent the past three seasons with the Jets, serving as their starting right tackle when healthy. He underwent back surgery in January to repair a herniated disc that forced him to end the 2016 campaign on injured reserve. He's now a free agent and can sign with any team.
Pierce Burton Headshot

Burton signed a contract with the Lions on Thursday.

Added Yesterday 3:45 pm (EST)
Burton has bounced around multiple practice squads over his first two seasons in the NFL and will hope to make an active roster for the first time with the Lions in 2017.
