Date Player
5/20/2016 Rico Gathers, Dal, TE
The Cowboys signed Gathers on Friday.

Analysis: Gathers, their sixth-round pick, hasn't played football since he was 13. The 6-foot-8, 275-pound Gathers projects as a tight end after deciding against pursuing a career in the NBA.
5/19/2016 Darrelle Revis, NYJ, CB
Revis, one of the NFL's highest-paid players among non-quarterbacks the past several years, has fired his longtime agents.

Analysis: ESPN first reported Thursday that Revis had parted ways with Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, the cornerback's agents since his rookie year in 2008. Schwartz and Feinsod negotiated a few huge deals for Revis, who has made $101 million in his career, according to Spotrac.com. He is due to make $17 million in guaranteed money this season.
5/19/2016 Jalen Ramsey, Jax, CB
The Jags said Thursday that Ramsey, the fifth overall selection in the NFL draft, sustained a "small tear to the meniscus" in his right knee during an on-field workout earlier this week. The former Florida State standout will get a second opinion next week before deciding the next course of action.

Analysis: Ramsey started all 41 games in three years in college, finishing with 180 tackles, 23 passes defended, five sacks, three interceptions and three forced fumbles. He played cornerback and safety for the Seminoles, and also ran track.
5/18/2016 William Jackson III, Cin, CB
The Bengals have two draft picks left unsigned _ including Jackson.

Analysis: It's uncertain where the team is on the negotiations.
5/18/2016 David Onyemata, NO, DT
The New Orleans Saints signed Onyemata to a four-year contract Wednesday.

Analysis: The Saints selected Onyemata in the fourth round of the draft with the 120th overall pick. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Nigerian played in Canada at the University of Manitoba. In 37 career games, Onyemata had 166 tackles, 9 1/2 sacks, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Last season, he had 50 tackles, five sacks, one pass defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over nine starts.
5/18/2016 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Elliott has signed a four-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys that includes a $16 million signing bonus and is worth nearly $25 million overall for the Ohio State running back who was the fourth overall draft pick.

Analysis: Elliott is only the third running back the Cowboys have taken with a top-20 pick in franchise history. The other two are Hall of Famers Tony Dorsett and Emmitt Smith, the NFL's career rushing leader.
5/17/2016 David Johnson, Pit, TE
The Pittsburgh Steelers bolstered their tight end depth on Tuesday, signing veteran David Johnson to a one-year deal.

Analysis: The signing is a homecoming for Johnson, taken by the Steelers in the seventh round of the 2009 draft. Johnson spent five years with Pittsburgh before signing with San Diego in 2014. Used primarily as a blocker, Johnson has 24 receptions for 224 yards and a touchdown in his career.
5/17/2016 Andre Roberts, Was, WR
The Redskins have released Roberts, saving approximately $4 million in cap space for next season.

Analysis: Washington signed Roberts to a four-year, $16 million contract in March 2014, but he started just four games and recorded 47 catches for 588 yards and two touchdowns over two seasons. He became further expendable with Washington's selection of TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson in the first round of last month's draft.
