Texans reportedly release tight end Ryan Griffin on Friday
The Houston Texans have reportedly released tight end Ryan Griffin on Friday.
Griffin has been reportedly let go by Houston after playing six seasons with the Texans. Look for rookie Kahale Warring to step in at tight end.
In 77 games with Houston, Griffin produced 136 receptions for 1491 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Cardinals' Patrick Peterson reportedly suspended 6 games for PEDs
Arizona Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson has been suspended 6 games by the National Football League for violating the policy on performance-enhancing drugs, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Peterson will first be eligible to return in Week 7 against the New York Giants. The All-Pro corner turns 29 in July.
Peterson recorded 53 tackles (45 solo) with 2 interceptions and 5 pass deflections last season.
Patriots sign wide receiver Dontrelle Inman to a one-year deal on Friday
The New England Patriots and wide receiver Dontrelle Inman have agreed to a one-year contract on Friday.
Inman will join the Patriots after signing with New England on Friday. Look for the veteran wideout to play behind Julian Edelman and rookie N'Keal Harry.
In nine games last season, Inman produced 28 receptions for 304 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Doug Baldwin released by Seattle with "failed physical" designation
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has been released on Thursday afternoon due to a failed physical as health problems arose over the offseason.
This isn't the team letting him go. Instead, this is a mandatory precursor to receiving an injury settlement when he ultimately retires from football. A knee injury plagued him last season, and like Rob Gronkowski, the relatively-young pass catcher has called it quits as his body has broken down. Tyler Lockett is the de-facto No. 1 receiver in Seattle now, and D.K. Metcalf has all the opportunity in the world to break out as a rookie.
In 123 career games, Baldwin caught 493 yards for 6,563 yards and 49 touchdowns.
Ben Watson signs one-year deal with New England
Free agent tight end Benjamin Watson has signed a one-year deal with the defending champion New England Patriots.
Watson, 38, most recently played with the New Orleans Saints last season, and the veteran continues to chug along as a valued pass catcher and blocker. There's obviously a gaping hole at the position with the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, and Watson could be another wily vet that ends up pushing the Pats towards another Super Bowl run.
In 16 games this season, Watson has 35 catches, 400 yards, two touchdowns and 52 FanDuel points.
Report: Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul may miss 2019 with neck fracture
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul will likely require season-ending surgery for a neck fracture he suffered in a single-car accident last week, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Pierre-Paul will visit with specialists this week, but the fracture will likely require surgery. The 30-year-old was arguably the Buccaneers' best player on defense last season.
JPP recorded 12.5 sacks in 2018 during his first season in Tampa Bay.
