NFL Recent Player News
|5/25/2018||Marcedes Lewis, Jax, TE|
|The Packers have signed Lewis, adding another veteran to back up Jimmy Graham.
Analysis: The 6-foot-6 Lewis, who turned 34 last week, played 12 seasons in Jacksonville. He ranks third in Jaguars history with 375 catches and second with 33 touchdown receptions. Lewis also helped the Jaguars run for an NFL-best 141.4 yards per game last year.
|5/22/2018||Hunter Henry, LAC, TE|
|Henry tore an anterior cruciate ligament during practice, likely sidelining him for next season. The team announced the injury on its Twitter account on Tuesday. It did not specify which knee or how the injury occurred.
Analysis: Hunter, a second-round pick in 2016, had 45 receptions for 579 yards and four TDs last season for the Chargers, who finished 9-7. For his career, he has 81 catches for 1,057 yards and 12 touchdowns.
|5/21/2018||Richie Incognito, Buf, G|
|The Bills have released Incognito from the reserve/retired list, making him a free agent.
Analysis: Incognito is now able to resume his career with another team if he so chooses, and the move ends a strange two-month saga between the Bills and the 12-year veteran. Incognito abruptly retired in March, not long after accepting a pay cut, and has since sent mixed signals about possibly returning. Though he turns 35 in July, he still played at a high level last season.
|5/18/2018||Jamar Taylor, Ari, CB|
|The Browns and Cardinals have agreed to a trade that will send Taylor to Arizona in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick.
Analysis: Taylor started 29 games for the Browns over the last two seasons but was made expendable by the offseason additions of Travis Carrie, E.J. Gaines and No. 4 overall draft pick Denzel Ward. The five-year veteran fills a clear need in Arizona, which was lacking a proven starting cornerback to play opposite Patrick Peterson.
|5/18/2018||Randy Gregory, Dal, DE|
|Gregory, suspended for all the 2017 season for a drug policy violation, will apply to the NFL for reinstatement.
Analysis: A second-round pick of the 2015 draft, Gregory has played in just 14 games in three seasons while being suspended three times for substance abuse infractions, though NFL.com reported this week that he just completed a six-week stint in drug rehab. The 25-year-old has never lacked talent and theoretically could make an impact on Dallas' defense if he's able to keep his head on straight.
