Jaguars not expected to re-sign slot standout Aaron Colvin
The Jacksonville Jaguars are not expected to re-sign slot corner Aaron Colvin this offseason.
Colvin's set to be a free agent and could be one of the top corners on the market. At 26, he proved himself as a big-time player in the slot. He was a great complement to Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, who combined to lead the Jaguars to the league's most efficient pass defense.
In 16 games, Colvin tallied 37 tackles and 5 passes defensed this season. He rated out as Pro Football Focus' 47th-ranked corner from his slot position.
Colts not expected to re-sign Frank Gore
The Indianapolis Colts are not expected to re-sign free agent running back Frank Gore.
At 34 years old, Gore isn't likely to have a big market for his services. If anything, he'll be brought on to serve as a veteran backup. The Miami Dolphins could have interest in Gore. Meanwhile, the Colts are expected to use a high pick on a running back.
Gore totaled 1,206 yards and 4 touchdowns on 290 touches in 2017.
Report: Eagles' Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) could miss training camp
"The goal" is for wide receiver Alshon Jeffery to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.
Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on Wednesday. The recovery could keep him out up to six months, which would mean a mid-August return. He could be ready for the preseason, but he's certainly in jeopardy of missing some, if not, all of training camp. It shouldn't be too much of a problem with his knowledge of the offense and Carson Wentz working his way back from his own injury.
Jeffery finished the 2017 season ranked 19th in Receiving Net Expected Points (81.06). He turned 18 targets and 12 catches into 219 yards and 3 touchdowns during this year's playoff run.
Colts, Adam Vinatieri 'closing in' on one-year deal
Indianapolis Colts and kicker Adam Vinatieri are reportedly "closing in" on a one-year deal, according to WTHR's Bob Kravitz.
The deal is expected to be finalized tomorrow, and it doesn't come as much of a shocker. Vinatieri has said he would kick in 2018 and that he'd like to remain in Indianapolis. The 45-year-old will play his 13th season for the Colts.
In his time with the Colts, Vinatieri has converted 86.5% of his attempts, including 31-of-44 from 50-plus yards.
Eagles' Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) undergoes surgery on torn rotator cuff
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn rotator cuff.
Jeffery suffered the injury in training camp, but he was somehow able to play through it all the way to the Super Bowl. It was never thought to be as severe as it was, but Jeffery was instrumental in the Eagles' championship season. The Eagles extended the 28-year-old back in December.
Playing in all 16 games, Jeffery turned 57 catches into 789 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2017.
Panthers could release Jonathan Stewart this offseason
Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is viewed a potential cut candidate this offseason.
Entering the final year of his contract, the 30-year-old is due a total of $3.5 million in 2018. Cutting him would save the team even more than that toward the cap, allowing them to make upgrades elsewhere. Christian McCaffrey was much more effective in his role as a rookie in 2017. He would undoubtedly see a larger workload absent Stewart.
In 2017, Stewart played in 15 games, rushing for 680 yards and 6 touchdowns on 198 carries.
