Former Bills DT Adolphus Washington signs with Dolphins

Thu May 23 12:11pm ET

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Defensive tackle Adolphus Washington has signed with the Miami Dolphins, his fourth team since the start of last season.

Washington was a third-round pick by Buffalo in 2016 and started 21 games in his first two seasons. He was cut by the Bills last September, spent a brief time on the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad and then joined the Cincinnati Bengals, where he played in only four games and was slowed by a knee injury. Cincinnati released him a month ago.

The Dolphins waived linebacker James Burgess.

Player Notes
JJ Arcega-Whiteside May 23 1:30pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside has seen some time in the slot during organized team activities this week. It helped that Alshon Jeffery wasn't at practice, but it's still notable nonetheless. Arcega-Whiteside should be a weapon for the Eagles in the red zone, but you shouldn't expect him to make an impact in redraft leagues while behind Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor on the depth chart unless an injury occurs.

Erik Swoope May 23 1:30pm ET

The Oakland Raiders signed free-agent tight end Erik Swoope to an undisclosed deal on Wednesday. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound tight end spent his first five seasons with the Colts. He has made six starts in 24 career games, catching 23 passes for 384 yards (16.7 average) and four touchdowns. He appeared in seven games for the Colts last year (two starts), catching eight passes for 87 yards and a career-high three scores. The Raiders released quarterback Landry Jones in a corresponding move. Oakland has Derek Carrier, Luke Willson, rookie Foster Moreau and Darren Waller on their tight end depth chart, so Swoope could certainly carve out a significant pass-catching role with his new team. He'd strictly be a deep sleeper at tight end in fantasy drafts.

Dallas Goedert May 23 1:20pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert stood out in the team's organized team activities on Tuesday and was catching everything thrown his way. The team's top draft pick in 2018 caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season and has emerged as the team's best blocking tight end. Goedert's goal in the offseason was getting bigger, faster and stronger. He added muscle, reduced fat and feels faster. The Eagles have made it clear that they want to feature him more in the offense in 2019, so Goedert could have more opportunities. Still, it might be a stretch to think that he'll become a TE1 in his second year while having to battle for targets with Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, DeSean Jackson and the running backs.

Richard Sherman May 23 1:10pm ET

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman is feeling back to his old self during organized team activities. Last year at this time, Sherman was recovering from Achilles surgery and wasn't a full participant during the offseason program. He's calling the difference this year "night and day." He managed to play 14 games last year, but he still felt the effects of his Achilles surgery. Sherman also dealt with a calf injury last year, but that's also in the past. The All-Pro cornerback isn't at the level he was in his prime with the Seahawks, but Sherman can still lead this secondary and make plays if he can stay healthy in 2019.

Nick Bosa May 23 1:10pm ET

San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive end Nick Bosa (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring during team drills at organized team activities on Tuesday and watched the rest of the practice from the sideline. It doesn't sound like the injury is too serious, but the Niners will surely play it safe with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft. Bosa does have an extensive injury history much like his brother, so don't be surprised if they keep him out for the rest of OTAs. His presence on the defensive line will immediately boost San Fran's pass rush in 2019.

Jimmy Garoppolo May 23 1:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) took part in individual 7-on-7 drills on Tuesday in organized team activities but didn't take part in team drills. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Garoppolo won't be cleared for full team workouts until training camp because the team doesn't want to risk having defenders around the QB's legs. Garoppolo has impressed the coaches and teammates with how well he's moving while wearing a titanium knee brace. The QB tore his ACL on Sept. 23 and missed the final 13 games of last season. He hasn't dealt with swelling in "a long time." Garoppolo has been pleased with his ability to push the ball down the field and is also making strides in the weight room. He'll have QB1 upside if he's fully healthy in 2019, but fantasy owners should probably play it safe and take him as a QB2 with upside.

Ezekiel Elliott May 23 1:40am ET

The Dallas Cowboys and running back Ezekiel Elliott seem to be on the same page as far as discussions on a long-term contract extension go. However, the Cowboys have made it clear that quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper are at the front of the line for extensions this offseason. Elliott is one of the true workhorse backs in the NFL and at 23 years old will get a handsome raise whenever he gets an extension. He barely missed 1,000 yards in 2017 when he was suspended and has gone well over 1,000 yards rushing in his other two seasons. Elliott has 4,048 yards rushing (4.7 average) with 28 rushing touchdowns in his three NFL seasons. He had a career-high 77 receptions for 567 yards and three more touchdowns in 2018 and is a surefire top-three fantasy selection in 2019 drafts.

Delanie Walker May 23 1:20am ET

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) is making progress in his recovery from his ankle injury. I feel like Im in the 85 percent range, the Titans tight end said Tuesday. Today I felt fast getting out of my breaks, and I was catching the ball well. Always a good sign. It was the first time he practiced on the field since Week 1 of last year when he suffered a season-ending ankle injury. The veteran tight end was a full participant in individual drills but watched most of the team drills. Walker doesn't have a timetable for a return and said he's shed "a few pounds" but is officially listed at 248 pounds. Entering his age-35 season, he will be just two years removed from a five-season stretch in which he had at least 60 catches each season. A bounce-back season could be in the cards with better health, but Walker will be drafted as a risk/reward low-end TE1 this year.

Mose Frazier May 23 1:20am ET

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Mose Frazier (arm) broke his left arm during practice on Tuesday, according to a league source. He is scheduled to undergo surgery by team doctor Pat Connor and his recovery is expected to last three to four months. Frazier's status for training camp is to be determined, but he obviously won't be ready for the regular season. The 25-year-old could be a cut candidate before the start of the season if he's not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Garrett Celek May 23 1:10am ET

San Francisco 49ers tight end Garrett Celek (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol and will not be cleared until at least training camp. The backup to George Kittle had just five catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games for the Niners last season. He'll turn 31 next month and won't be fantasy relevant in 2019 unless Kittle goes down with an injury during the season.

Raheem Mostert May 23 1:00am ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert (forearm) needed to have another surgery to fix his broken forearm and will be out for another month. It adds injury to insult, as Mostert is behind Matt Breida, Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and Jeffery Wilson on the team's crowded backfield depth chart. It'll take several injuries ahead of him for Mostert to gain any real playing time in 2019. He received only 34 carries for 261 yards (7.7 average) and one touchdown in nine games for San Fran in 2018.

Matt Breida May 23 1:00am ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida (pectoral) has a slightly torn pectoral muscle but will not need surgery. He will miss organized team activities but should be ready for the start of training camp this summer. Breida seemingly played injured for most of the 2018 season but managed to run the ball 153 times for 814 yards (5.3 average) and three touchdowns in 14 games. It looks like he'll be ready for the start of the season, but an injury of this nature could hurt him as he attempts to distance himself in a crowded backfield that includes Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Jeffery Wilson and Raheem Mostert.

Jordan Leggett May 23 1:00am ET

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed tight end Jordan Leggett off waivers from the Jets on Tuesday, according to a source. The third-year professional was a fifth-round pick out of Clemson in 2017 and spent his rookie season on Injured Reserve. Leggett made four starts in 15 games last season for Gang Green and had 14 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown. In Tampa, he'll struggle for consistent playing time behind O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate, so you can avoid Leggett in all fantasy formats.

Chris Carson May 23 12:50am ET

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back Chris Carson (knee) "had a little work done" on his knee, but he should be back in a couple of weeks. Carson has had injury issues before, so this one is worth watching as we get further into the summer. The 24-year-old, a seventh-round pick in 2017, has yet to play a full season in his two years in the NFL and managed just four games in his rookie season. He had 247 carries for 1,151 yards (4.7 average) and nine touchdowns as he ran away with the job in Seattle in 2018. He'll have to keep it up this season to hold off Rashaad Penny, who is entering his second season and should have a larger role.

From RotoBaller

Frank Clark May 23 12:50am ET

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there's a chance that defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is ready for Week 1, but they won't know for sure until training camp begins. Ansah has always had plenty of pass-rushing potential, but he was never able to capitalize on it in Detroit due to various injuries. The 29-year-old played in only seven games in 2018 and hasn't played in a full season since 2015. Ansah has reached double-digit sack totals twice in his career, but those in IDP leagues will want to see him prove his health first. Seattle is hoping he can fill in for the loss of Frank Clark, who was traded to Kansas City.

Jason Croom May 22 11:50pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Jason Croom was seen walking off the practice field with a trainer during organized team activities on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury. Running backs Frank Gore (ankle, foot) and T.J. Yeldon (groin) are also nursing injuries. Gore was limited while Yeldon sat out. With tight end Tyler Kroft (foot) out three to four months with a fractured foot, Buffalo's tight end room is already shrinking. Rookie Dawson Knox could be forced into significant playing time in his first season, although he won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues. Lee Smith could also see a big role early on in the year, depending on the severity and type of injury Croom is dealing with.

DaeSean Hamilton May 22 11:40pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton (knee) said his knee bothered him at the end of last season. He spent much of the offseason training in Florida and focused on putting weight on and getting stronger and faster. Hamilton said his knee is feeling great now as training camp approaches. The 24-year-old fourth-round pick had 30 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in his rookie season. He could make some noise in deeper leagues as the No. 3 wideout behind Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton this season.

D'Onta Foreman May 22 11:30pm ET

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is seeing "good progress" from running back D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) after his "significant" Achilles injury. Foreman's work away from the team has helped him have a "good spring." The 23-year-old was trying to make a comeback last year but was only able to play in one game and had seven rushing attempts for negative-one yard. A healthy Foreman in 2019 will put pressure on Lamar Miller in the backfield. He'd be a worthy handcuff for any owner who selects Miller and could wind up seeing more touches eventually.

Jadeveon Clowney May 22 11:30pm ET

Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is away from the team during organized team activities. "I have no idea when he's going to be here. It's up to him," head coach Bill O'Brien said. Clowney is hoping for a long-term extension, but the two sides aren't close to an agreement and Clowney's extensive injury history complicates matters. The 26-year-old has played in just one full season in his five years in the NFL. He had 47 tackles, nine sacks, a forced fumble and three fumble recoveries in 15 games last season. Clowney is a risk/reward IDP pick because of his penchant for missing time with injuries. He's managed to miss only one game the last two years and has recorded 18.5 sacks in that time.

Jonnu Smith May 22 11:10pm ET

Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith (knee) didn't take part in organized team activities on Tuesday but got some work in off the jugs machine after practice. The 23-year-old tore his MCL last year and caught just 20 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games before his injury in 2018. As long as veteran Delanie Walker, who is also returning from an injury, stays healthy, Smith's fantasy upside will be limited in Tennessee's run-first offense.
