2/16/2017 Charley Hughlett, Cle, C
The Browns signed Hughlett to a six-year contract extension Thursday. Hughlett has been with the team since 2014, when he joined Cleveland's practice squad and was eventually signed to the active roster.

Analysis: Hughlett had been scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent this offseason before signing through 2022. Hughlett is entering his third NFL season out of Central Florida. He was originally signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2012.
2/15/2017 Ryan Clady, NYJ, T
New York Jets have released Clady after just one season in which he played only nine games because of a shoulder injury.

Analysis: Clady was due $10 million next season - with a $1 million roster bonus due Wednesday - that made his return to New York under that contract unlikely. Clady, acquired last offseason from Denver to replace the retired D'Brickashaw Ferguson, suffered a torn rotator cuff in Week 3 at Kansas City and played through it for a few weeks before being placed on injured reserve.
2/15/2017 Bene Benwikere, Cin, CB
The Bengals signed Benwikere on Wednesday.

Analysis: The 6-foot cornerback was Carolina's fifth-round draft pick in 2014. He started 14 games in three seasons with Carolina, including four last year before he was released. He finished the season on the practice squads of Miami and Green Bay. Benwikere has two interceptions, three fumble recoveries and one sack in his career.
2/13/2017 Aldon Smith, Oak, LB
Smith could be in more trouble after being investigated for a domestic incident over the weekend in San Francisco, according to multiple reports. TMZ Sports reported that police were called early Saturday morning to a home in San Francisco, and Smith does own a house in that city. Smith was interviewed by police, which took a statement from the woman. No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.

Analysis: Smith is currently serving a suspension for violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. The violations include two DUIs while he was with the San Francisco 49ers. Smith played in 2015 with the Raiders before he was suspended. Smith was expected to be reinstated in March, but another arrest would put that in jeopardy.
2/13/2017 Geronimo Allison, GB, WR
Allison has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Allison's attorney, Brian Maloney, entered the plea on his client's behalf Monday. WLUK-TV reports Allison was not in court and was not required to be there. The charge against Allison stems from a traffic stop in September in Manitowoc County. The next hearing is set for April 25.

Analysis: Allison emerged in the last couple of weeks of the regular season with eight catches for 157 yards and a score while filling in when Randall Cobb was hurt. The undrafted rookie free agent out of Illinois played with a hamstring injury in the Packers' 44-21 loss to Atlanta in the NFC championship game.
