  • FA Wide Receiver #10
    Smith was released by the Saints earlier this week after being placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. Unsurprisingly, he is visiting a Broncos team coached by Sean Payton, who Smith played for from 2018-2021. If Denver signs him, Smith will join a lackluster team that needs an offensive boost, though his injury will keep him low on the fantasy radar.
  • FA Quarterback #7
    In a letter to Jets GM Joe Douglas, Kaepernick says he would be “honored and extremely grateful for the opportunity” to lead the team’s practice squad. The letter was interestingly released by rapper J. Cole and contains Kaepernick’s arguments on why he would be a good addition for the Jets. He added Jim and John Harbaugh, Chip Kelly, and Mark Davis as references in the message. The 35-year-old last played for the 49ers in 2016, staying in the limelight for his social justice activities and workouts to return to play over the years.
  • FA Wide Receiver #86
    According to KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson, RB Darrell Henderson also worked out for Seattle in addition to Austin. The Seahawks seem to be looking to add offensive weapons for depth. Austin was also a returner in his NFL career and could add value there.
  • NO Wide Receiver #10
    For the first time in his career, Smith won’t be a Saint. The sixth-year veteran showed flashes during his time in New Orleans, but injuries have kept him from reaching his full potential. He’ll be looking for a new team as he recovers from a groin injury he suffered in training camp.
  • FA Running Back #35
    Jackson, who started Week 1 for the Colts, lands in Cleveland to provide depth at running back. In his Week 1 start he didn’t fare well rushing 13 times for 14 yards and losing two fumbles. The Browns also signed TE Devin Asiasi to the practice squad
  • FA Quarterback #19
    After Zach Wilson’s latest disastrous outing in Week 3 against the Patriots, the Jets have to do their due diligence and bring in a free agent quarterback or two. Siemian, who started one game for the Jets in 2019 and got one start for the Bears last season, would be an upgrade over Wilson because he is a professional QB. Jets head coach Robert Saleh re-committed to Wilson after the team’s Week 4 loss.
  • FA Tackle #71
    Collins was let go by the Bengals after spending all of training camp on the active/PUP list. The 30-year-old lineman suffered a torn ACL and MCL late last season, and was unable to get on the field until just recently. Collins has already drawn interest from the Patriots, but could find other suitors in the coming days now that he’s passed a physical. Collins started 15 games at right tackle for the Bengals last season, earning a PFF grade of 57.9 while allowing 34 pressures and five sacks.
  • FA Defensive Coordinator
    “Williams was not involved in any criminal activity,” Schefter reports. “But the Bears’ human resources department was part of the process that culminated in his abrupt resignation Wednesday.” There were rumors to this effect, but they were more sensational, involving federal authorities. This appears more like a workplace issue but obviously a troubling one. Williams had claimed he was “taking a step back to take care of my health and family.” It sounds like we probably have not heard the end of this story.
  • FA Quarterback #5
    McCarron, 33, signed with the XFL this offseason rather than staying in the NFL as a backup. Returning to the Bengals would add further insurance with Joe Burrow (calf) working through a setback. McCarron had 2,150 and a 24:6 TD/INT ratio in nine XFL starts this season.
  • FA Running Back #35
    Jackson started Week 1 for the Colts before being held without a carry or offensive snap in Zack Moss’ return last week. The Colts will promote RB Trey Sermon to replace Jackson on the roster. 24-year-old Jackson should resurface on a practice squad if he’s not back with the Colts.
