Saints keep leading running back in the mix
Pierre Thomas' extension keeps the running back under contract with the Saints through 2016, Smith said. Thomas initially was thought to possibly become a salary cap casualty, as his cap number for 2014 would have been $2.9 million, or trade bait. (Times-Picayune)
FF Today's Take: The biggest benefit for the Saints is the fact that Thomas' cap number for this season is reduced. Thomas led the Saints in rushing with only 549 yards but also had 77 receptions for 513 yards and 5 total TDs. He will compete with Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram for touches in 2014.

Top wide receiver free agent on the market
Top free-agent receiver Eric Decker will meet with the Jets on Wednesday, NFL Media's Kimberly Jones reported. The Jets have a desperate need to add playmakers at the skill positions. A putrid corps of receivers in 2013 got even less star studded after the team jettisoned Santonio Holmes. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take: Right now, the Jets have Jeremy Kerley, Stephen Hill and David Nelson as their top wideouts. They may be the most WR-needy team in the league.

Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead still on roster
The Chargers have struck in free agency. After more than seven hours passed quietly, they agreed to terms Tuesday night with Donald Brown, sources said. The former Colts running back joins San Diego on a three-year deal worth $10.5 million, $4 million of which is guaranteed. (Union Tribune)
FF Today's Take: Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead are entering the final year of their contracts. Brown gives the Chargers more of a complete back as Woodhead is more of a receiver and Mathews more of runner. This three-headed monster will likely give fantasy owners fits in 2014.

$4.5 million guaranteed
The Jacksonville Jaguars have found a new running back. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday night that Toby Gerhart has signed a three-year deal worth $10.5 million with $4.5 million guaranteed, according to a source informed of the deal. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take: The former backup to Adrian Peterson lands in Jacksonville where he is now penciled in as a starter with only Jordan Todman on the roster. Longtime Jaguar Maurice Jones-Drew is not expected to be back with the team. Given the stagnant nature of the Jags offense, Gerhart is more of an RB3 even as a feature back.

Designated a post-June 1st cut
The Dallas Cowboys have also decided to part ways with veteran wide receiver Miles Austin and will designate him as a post-June 1 cut, according to a source. Releasing Austin saves the Cowboys $5.5 million against the cap, but they don't get the credit on those savings until after June 1. That money will likely go toward the Cowboys signing their draft picks this year. (Dallas Morning News)
FF Today's Take: Austin's breakout season was in 2009 (81 catches, 1320 yards, 11 TDs) but hasn't come close to those numbers since. He's battled chronic hamstring injuries and will likely have to prove his worth on a one-year deal with another team.

The Colts' commitment to a running game took one additional step Tuesday as Ahmad Bradshaw was signed as an unrestricted free agent. Bradshaw started two-of-three appearances in 2013 before a neck injury ended his season. (Colts.com)
FF Today's Take: Bradshaw has had serious foot problems throughout his career and added a neck injury this last season. He'll head into 2014 as Trent Richardson's backup as Donald Brown (free agent) isn't expected to return.

One-year, $4 million deal
The Oakland Raiders have re-signed running back Darren McFadden to a one-year, $4 million deal, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take: It was believed that the Raiders were intent on keeping Rashad Jennings but instead Jennings is headed for New York and McFadden is back on a one-year deal. Expect the Raiders to add another running back soon.

Ex-Raider could be starter in New York
The Giants wasted little time addressing their contingency plan at running back, agreeing to terms with former Raiders running back Rashad Jennings. Jennings, 28, rushed for 733 yards and six touchdowns last year as a member of the Raiders. He has a career average of more than four yards per carry, which should help the Giants depleted running back corps. (Star-Ledger)
FF Today's Take: The Giants will re-sign RB Peyton Hillis to a two-year deal and David Wilson (neck) is under contract. Andre Brown is the odd-man out in this situation meaning Jennings should be a significant contributor in 2014 and could easily be the starter Week 1.

Jags receive 6th round pick
GM Dave Caldwell traded Blaine Gabbert, the 10th-overall pick in the 2011 draft, to San Francisco on Tuesday for a sixth-round pick in May's draft and a conditional pick in 2015 based on playing time. (Florida Times Union)
FF Today's Take: Gabbert never grabbed ahold of the starting job in Jacksonville due to injury and poor play. His acumen as an NFL QB is in question but he will have an opportunity to rejuvenate his career in San Francisco under head coach Jim Harbaugh, in a run-first offense.

Three-year deal, $12 million
Going into free agency, Dexter McCluster didn't get a lot of attention but his acquisition by the Titans provides a hint of what new coach Ken Whisenhunt plans to do on offense. He can line up in the slot and create matchup problems. McCluster should solve the Titans' problems in the punt return game. (The Tennessean)
FF Today's Take: McCluster will fill the slot role for Ken Whisenhunt's offense and play a significant role on special teams but it's unlikely he'll be much of a fantasy force... a WR5 at best.

Two years, $4 million
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wasted absolutely no time in signing their first free agents of the offseason, adding defensive tackle Clinton McDonald (formerly of the Seahawks) and former Giants and Raiders tight end Brandon Myers. (The Pewter Plank)
FF Today's Take: Myers didn't come close to his 2012 season with the Raiders when totaled 79 catches for 806 yards. Even if new coach Lovie Smith favors Myers, he'll be a weak TE2 with the Bucs if he shares targets with fellow TE Tim Wright.

Wide receiver Santana Moss, right guard Shawn Lauvao and inside linebacker Adam Hayward each agreed to contracts with the Redskins in the minutes following the 4 p.m. start to the new league year. Moss, who spent the last nine seasons with the Redskins, agreed to a one-year contract to return to the team. (Washington Times)
FF Today's Take: Moss caught 42 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns out of the slot last season. He'll assume that role again in 2014. Andre Roberts (ARI) is rumored to be close to a free agent deal with the Redskins

The Broncos have reached an agreement with backup receiver Andre Caldwell on a two-year contract, according to a team source.Caldwell, who turns 29 next month, was the Broncos' No. 4 receiver last season; he was the No. 5 receiver in 2012. (Denver Post)
FF Today's Take: Caldwell will only become fantasy relevant if the Broncos suffer an injury in the receiving corps or Eric Decker walks in free agency. Caldwell had 16 catches for 200 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Now that Phil Dawson has re-signed with the 49ers for two more seasons, he'll have to learn the nuances of kicking in their new $1.3 billion home. Dawson, after 14 seasons with the Browns, proved a phenomenal pickup last spring for the 49ers. He totaled the second-most field goals in 49ers history (32), including a franchise-record 27 in a row at one point. (San Jose Mercury News)
FF Today's Take: Dawson tied for 6th (Justin Tucker) among fantasy kickers in 2013 with 140 F/Pts. He'll be a kicker worth grabbing in the last round of your fantasy draft in 2014.

Joique Bell always wanted to be in Detroit, and coming off the best season of his career, the Lions had no interest in letting him leave. Bell agreed to a three-year, $9.3-million contract today, with $4.3 million in guarantees. (Detroit Free Press)
FF Today's Take: Bell will once again share the workload with Reggie Bush and given the contract he signed, it's clear that Bell will be a significant factor in the Lions offense this season. Bell rushed for 650 yards and 8 touchdowns and chipped in 547 yards receiving in 2013.

Kenny Britt and Andrew Hawkins on the radar
Looking to surround quarterback Robert Griffin III with more weapons, the Redskins have made inquiries on free agent wide receivers Andrew Hawkins and Kenny Britt, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. (Washington Post)
FF Today's Take: With Josh Morgan and Santana Moss both free agents, the Redskins will need to be active in free agency and perhaps the draft addressing their need at WR. Britt has dealt with numerous injuries and off-field issues during his five years in the league but would be worth a flier on a one-year contract. Hawkins is best suited as a slot receiver and is a restricted free agent of Cincinnati.

Surgery to repair stress fracture
Aaron Dobson will miss 2-3 months after undergoing surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot, a league source said Monday night. Dobson, the Patriots' second-round pick in 2013, could miss valuable practice time with Brady and his teammates during organized team activities and minicamp, which begin in late April and conclude in mid-June. (Boston Globe)
FF Today's Take: Dobson originally suffered in the injury in Week 12 last season and finished the year with 37 catches, 519 yards and 4 touchdowns. He'll compete for a starting WR spot in 2014 provided he has no setbacks this Summer.

Cut after two years into four-year deal
The Bears on Monday released running back Michael Bush, a long-anticipated move that clears significant salary-cap space but leaves the team without a proven backup to starter Matt Forte. It saves the Bears $2.85 million for 2014 and clears $1.85 million in cap space. (Chicago Tribune)
FF Today's Take: Bush never carved out a significant role in the Bears offense behind Forte. Bush had 63 carries for 197 yards and 3 touchdowns last season. Expect Chicago to address the running back situation in free agency or the upcoming draft.

RB telling people he plans to retire
Former Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall was tired of living a "private life in the public eye" as an NFL player, which included being called racial slurs online, he wrote in his most recent blog for Huffington Post in which he explained why he retired at 26 years old. "I just kind of wanted to disappear," Mendenhall said. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take: Mendenhall is an unrestricted free agent and never fully got on track in Arizona last season rushing for 687 yards, 8 TDs and a 3.2 average. He suffered a torn ACL in 2011 and battled a toe injury in 2013. The Cardinals are expected to increase the workload of Andre Ellington in 2014.
