49ers To Release Arik Armstead

Mar 11, 2024 10:48 AM

The San Francisco 49ers will release Arik Armstead after the two sides were unable to agree to a restructured contract.

Armstead is coming off a season in which he played in 12 games with 27 tackles and five sacks. 

Armstead was slated to count $28.53 million against the 2024 salary cap, which is why the Niners were seeking a reworked deal to reduce that number.

Armstead tore the meniscus in his right knee, an injury he suffered in a Dec. 3 win at the Philadelphia Eagles.

Seahawks Release Jamal Adams

Mar 6, 2024 10:30 AM

The Seattle Seahawks have released Jamal Adams.

Adams, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, was set to make a nonguaranteed $16.5 million in 2024 and count $26.9 million against the salary cap -- untenable amounts for a player who has been unable to stay on the field or get to the quarterback since his stellar Seattle debut in 2020.

The Seahawks are not using a post-June 1 designation with Adams' release, a source told ESPN. That means they will save $6.1 million against the 2024 cap, according to Over The Cap, while absorbing all of his $20.83 million in dead money right away.

Chiefs Release Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Save $12M Against Cap

Feb 28, 2024 11:12 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs are releasing wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, which will save $12 million against their salary cap.

Valdes-Scantling played two seasons with the Chiefs after signing as a free agent from the Green Bay Packers. He caught 42 passes in 2022 and 21 last season but often had his biggest moments in the playoffs.

Rashee Rice was the Chiefs' leading pass catcher in 2023 with 79.

Jets Waive Dalvin Cook With One Game Remaining

Jan 2, 2024 4:09 PM

Dalvin Cook's disappointing season with the New York Jets came to a premature end on Tuesday, as the four-time Pro Bowl running back was waived with one game remaining, according to his agency.

The move was mutually agreed upon, according to a source, and will allow Cook to catch on with a playoff team. He also restructured his contract to forfeit remaining guarantees, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Dec 27, 2023 9:14 AM

The Houston Texans have claimed safety Kareem Jackson off waivers, one day after he was released by the Denver Broncos.

In a corresponding move, Houston placed Jimmie Ward (quad) on injured reserve.

Jackson, 35, has had a tumultuous season that has included two suspensions, most recently for four games. He has been ejected from two games for repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules.

Patriots Waive QB Will Grier

Nov 25, 2023 12:47 PM

The New England Patriots waived third-string quarterback Will Grier on Saturday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

That leaves Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe on the depth chart, with coach Bill Belichick yet to announce a starter for Sunday's road game against the New York Giants after he had benched Jones late in the team's most recent game - a Week 10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Frankfurt, Germany.
