The Oakland Raiders are releasing wide receiver Michael Crabtree, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Analysis:?Aaron Rodgers might be doing flips about landing Graham. The tight end hauled in 10 touchdown catches last year and should be a major red-zone weapon even if he can’t recapture his early-career form. Nelson, however, was perhaps Rodgers’ favorite target. Though he turns 33 in May, he could be an intriguing addition for a team looking for a reliable veteran target.
The move:?Former Jacksonville Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin is signing a four-year deal with the Houston Texans, according to multiple reports.
Analysis:?Houston is getting some payback after Jacksonville nabbed A.J. Bouye last offseason, a move that contributed to a woeful year for the Texans in which the defense gave up 30 touchdowns through the air. Colvin is a standout in the slot, but the Texans might want to keep pursuing?other options in the secondary.
The deal will be for three years. The amount could not immediately be confirmed by the Observer.
Poe will immediately start on Carolina’s defensive interior to replace former defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, who signed with the Bills in free agency.
Haloti Ngata is joining the Eagles’ deep defensive line.
Per multiple reports it’s a one-year deal. Ngata, 34, is no longer a perennial Pro Bowler but will likely become a valuable part of Philly’s rotation, replacing Beau Allen.
Analysis:?Talent as never been the issue for Eifert, just his durability. He’s missed 22 games over the past two seasons and has never played a full 16-game schedule. But he is valuable when available. He gets a one-year deal after back injuries cut short each of his past two campaigns.
RB Doug Martin has agreed to a deal with the Raiders, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
