The Seahawks would also like to welcome Karl Klug to the team. Similar to Jarvis Jones, we feel Karl will be a more natural fit in a 4-3 defense, where he will have one gap responsibilities against the run and will provide a credible pass rushing threat on top of our dynamic DEs. We paid a premium, but we think our defense is better for it.

We are pleased to welcome QB Brian Hoyer to the Land of the Tits.

Brian, 31, brings a steady hand at quarterback to help mentor Marcus Mariota. The product of Michigan State, aka Quarterback U, has proven to be a reliable starter and top-end backup over the years, passing for 8,608 yards and 44 touchdowns and 26 touchdowns.

While we expect Marcus Mariota to be ready for the start of the regular season, having an insurance policy like Brian is extremely reassuring.

He’s a starting-caliber QB at $1.75 million and further bolsters a deep roster that we fully anticipate to take the next step from fringe playoff team to legitimate contender for years to come.

Cardinals are please to welcome:

EJ Manuel, Erik Walden, Ted Larsen, Brandon Mc(M)anus, and Michael Thomas all for a total of $2.9M.

- Manuel will slot in as our primary backup QB.
- Erik Walden had 11 sacks last year & will provide veteran leadership as a pass rusher.
- Ted Larsen will provide depth/spot starts at the RG position & fill in as needed with a solid season in Chicago last year.
- Brandon McAnus...McManus will provide a nice option for Kicker.
- Michael Thomas will provide depth as a core special teams player and spot playing time at the FS position.

The Bears officially announced the signing of their offseason free agent acquisitions. The Bears have been very active this offseason as the team was in desperate need of an upgrade all around.

Bryce Callahan, CB - Tendered ($540,000)

Tyrod Taylor, QB - ($10,000,000) The Bears were in need of a QB and landed one early in the offseason. The Bears are excited to add him to the roster and plan to place him directly under the wing of Tom Clements. Tom has coached all star QBs such as Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre and has even taken mediocre QBs, such as Kordell Stewart, and turned them into Pro Bowl QBS. Under Tom's tutelage the Bears are hopeful that Taylor can have success in Chicago.

Kenny Stills, WR - ($16,00,000) The Bears decided to let Alshon walk this offseason because they needed a receiver that they could rely on to stay on the field. After intense negotiations they were able to bring in Kenny Stills. The price was high but the Bears ultimately think he is worth it. He does not have the gaudy stats some receivers have but stats can be deceiving. Stills is a guy that can get separation, is a true deep threat and has a knack for finding the end zone. Stills will play in the slot during three receiver sets.

Beau Brinkley, LS - ($540,000) While not the most flashy signing the Bears are thrilled to land a reliable long snapper of his caliber. Beau is a great special teams player that has shown he can get down the field and make tackles on the punt team.

Prince Amukamara, CB - ($11,500,000) The Bears desperately needed to upgrade their secondary and are off to a good start with the acquisition of Amukamara. Prince A. is not necessarily one of the top corners in the league but is he put together a solid season last year and will be an immediate upgrade in Chicago's secondary.

Logan Ryan, CB - ($14,000,000) The Bears announced the signing of Ryan early Friday morning. Ryan adds a new level of skill to the Bears secondary with his willingness to tackle and his ability to man cover.

Lawrence Guy, DE - ($7,500,00) The Bears strengthened their defense line late last night with the signing of Lawrence Guy. Guy is versatile defensive end that has the length and ability to play in multiple spots along the defensive line and be a disruption to opposing quarterbacks. The Bears are excited to bring aboard a free agent that they see as a underappreciated player.

Pace Murphy, RT - ($540,000) The Bears have decided to take a chance on recently cut, former undrafted free agency Pace Murphy. Murphy comes from a small school but is football technician with solid movement skills. He beat the odds by making the Rams roster last year and has ability to play up and down the line. The Bears are currently slotting Murphy as a reserve tackle.

Alex Okafor, OLB - ($1,250,000) The Bears are pleased to add Okafor to the roster on a team friendly deal. Alex is a disruptive pass rusher who will be a great addition as a rotational pass rusher.

Justin Hunter, WR - ($1,500,000) The Bears added depth to their receiving corps with the signing of Justin Hunter. The Bears are intrigued with the former second round pick's blend of size and speed and are hopefully he can bring it all together under the guidance of the Bears coaching staff.

Stephen Paea, NT - ($1,250,000) The Bears are pleased to welcome Paea back into the fold. Paea will play the nose tackle position in the Bears 3-4 defensive line. Paea will be part of a rotation at the position but will most likely receive the majority of the snaps. Paea has played several positions along defensive lines in the past but the Bears see his size, along with ability to stuff the run and pressure the quarterback as best suited for the nose position. The Bears are confident he will be a great addition to this defensive front and a positive influence in the locker room.

Audie Cole, ILB/OLB - ($540,000) The Bears announce the signing of free agency linebacker Audie Cole. Cole has spent the last few years in Minnesota where he was a special teams captain and has some starting experience and played well when his number was called. Cole will serve as a reserve linebacker and has the versatility to play both inside and outside.

Phil Dawson, K - ($540,000) The Bears announce the signing of veteran kicker Phil Dawson. The changes to the extra point rules have put an increased importance on converting extra points. Dawson is one the of the leagues most consistent kickers converting 98.9% of extra points and 86.1% of field goals over the last seven seasons.

The Falcons are (blank) to sign Gunslinger Blaine Gabbert. His name is Blaine. He's more sling than gun.

The Tennessee Titans announce the signings of six free agents, headlined by linebacker Korey Toomer.

Toomer, 28, thrived in his first season with meaningful playing time, recording 75 tackles and a sack for the San Diego Chargers. He has a PFF grade, but the Tits don’t want to offend any other franchises who hate metrics.

He figures to push for a starting job as a Sam linebacker in Tennessee’s base defense.

The Titans are also pleased to announce the signings of the following players:

Rafael Bush, S - Reliable, versatile veteran DB who has consistently produced his entire career.
Michael Morgan, LB - Special-teams ace with ability to be good rotational LB.
Ryan Davis, DE/DT - Impactful interior pass rusher with ability to set edge as well.
Jake Long, OL - Should be a reliable backup tackle if he can walk again.
Kenjon Barner, RB - Electric returner with experience in spread offense. 61 carries, 260 rushing yards, 4.3 YPC in two seasons.
Michael Griffin, S - Will retire with the Titans after we cut him and make Witlon’s life more difficult. Sorry Witlon.

As Free Agency comes to a close, the Seahawks would like to address the successful retention of their three tendered Restricted Free Agents, DeShawn Shead, Brock Coyle, and Steven Terrell. We are elated to bring back Coyle and Terrell in depth positions. As has been a theme with the Seahawks this offseason, we probably paid a bit more for them than we might value them in a vacuum, but we wanted to lock down our key special teamers and backups. Coyle was the first linebacker off the bench, and Terrell filled in admirably when Thomas went down.

I specifically wanted to address the retention DeShawn Shead. When considering our players to tender, we wanted to bring Shead in spite of his torn ACL suffered in the playoffs. If we would have been allowed to negotiate with Shead as a real life NFL team, we would have offered a contract worth $1.5M in year one, then a two year option worth $9M with some substantial guaranteed money. We appreciate his quality play in a starting role last season and his leadership as the special teams captain, so we would have negotiated a structure that would have hedged on his play quality after a major injury, then paid him above what we think he would fetch on the market if he was able to return the same player he was in 2016.

We were frankly blown away by the 49ers bid of $5,000,000. Our feeling was that since this is technically a one year league (even though I make decisions with up to the next five years in consideration), nobody would bid on a player that got such a major injury so late in the season. Hindsight is 20-20, but we thought it was worth the risk to stick with the first refusal offer. That said, we still feel Shead is worth this price tag when healthy. We should be able to win the AFC West without his presence, and we expect him to be ready to take back his starting role (if necessary) as we get to the post-season.
