Let’s take a look at the full list of the 2017 NFL Transactions up to now.
So much is happening right now in the NFL. The off-season preparation has begun and just a few weeks before the 2017 NFL Draft, the 32 teams are making changes to their rosters as we speak. Negotiations, free agent picks, trades, releases, strategic moves – we are witnessing the full package of the NFL off-season excitement. In this article we take a detailed look at the most important NFL transactions of the past week.
New York Giants Signed D.J. Fluker (OL)
The 6’5″, 339 pound Fluker served well in San Diego. The 2013 first round pick was drafted from Alabama to protect the life and health of the Chargers’ most important man – QB Philip Rivers. Now that Fluker’s 4-year contract expired, he is moving to New York to strengthen the O-line of the Giants.
Jaxonville Jaguars Released Roy Miller (DT)
The Jaguars recently said goodbye to one of the most experienced NFL linemen. Roy Miller has 8 seasons in the League – 4 with Tamba Bay Buccaneers and 4 with the Jags. He was an undisputed starter until October 2016, when due to an injury (torn Achilles tendon), he played just 6 out of the Jaguars’ 15 regular season games.
Detroit Lions Signed T.J. Lang (G)
Lang’s 4-year contract with the Packers expired and now the guard is moving to Detroit. His career with the packers brought him a Super Bowl ring in 2010 when he took part in the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Buffalo Bills Signed Corey Brown (WR)
The undrafted free agent from Ohio State was acquired by the Carolina Panthers in 2014, where he played 3 seasons. In his second season (2015) he helped the Panthers set their new franchise record with 15 wins and 1 loss and also reached the Super Bowl. During the big game against Manning’s Broncos, Brown made 4 catches for 80 yards, and was the Panthers’ leading receiver in terms of yardage. Unfortunately he didn’t get the ring, as the Broncos won 24-10. Corey’s contract with Buffalo is for 1 year.
Washington Redskins Franchise Tagged Kirk Cousins (QB)
After the expiration of his one-year contract, Kirk Cousins was offered another deal with the Redskins. For the 2017 season the quarterback gets a one-year franchise tag contract, securing him a base salary of nearly $24 million. This move by the Redskins makes us rethink our prediction about the 49-ers signing him up. By the way, did you know that Kirk Cousins published a book in 2013? It is called “Game Changer” and contains his thoughts on the game of football, his career, his life goals and the things he believe in.
Philadelphia Eagles Agreed to Terms with Nick Foles (QB)
Nick Foles is back to Philadelphia on a two-year contract. After being drafted by the Eagles and playing for them for three years (2012-2014) he found himself in the lines of St. Louis Rams and then played as a second string QB for Kansas City Chiefs. During the 2017 season Foles participated in just three games for the Chiefs, as their first QB Alex Smith was healthy and top-performing most of the time.
Oakland Raiders Signed Marshall Newhouse (OL) and Cordarrelle Patterson (WR)
The big fellow comes from the Giants and is expected to protect Oakland’s QB for the next two seasons. Season 2017 will be Marshall’s 8th year in the NFL. The Raiders seem to be strengthening their offense a lot, as they also acquired Minnesota Vikings’ top receiver and 2014 Pro Bowl participant Cordarrelle Patterson.
New England Patriots Signed Lawrence Guy (DL)
After six years of struggle and playing for six different teams, the defensive lineman finally found his home, as the Pats offered him a four-year contract for $20 million.
LA Chargers Released King Dunlap (OT)
Mr. Dunlap’s 6’9″, 330 pounds and nine years of NFL experience didn’t help him keep his spot with the Chargers. He is now 31 and still shows problematic behavior. Dunlap was arrested several times, last one being in February 2017 for causing domestic disturbance and violating a protective order against his former girlfriend.
Kansas City Chiefs Signed Daniel Sorensen (S)
The Chiefs extended Sorensen’s contract to 4 years for $16 million per season. The safety with Scandinavian roots was an undrafted rookie in 2014 when the Chiefs noticed him and sent him to their practice squad. Now the youngster is a solid part of the franchise from Kansas.
Indianapolis Colts Signed LB Barkevious Mingo, DE Margus Hunt, and OL Brian Schwenke
Mingo is a Super Bowl LI champion with the Patriots, and the other two are Europeans. Hunt is originally from Estonia and the Hawaii-born Schwenke has German roots.

– Minnesota Vikings acquired CB Terence Newman.
– New England Patriots re-signed LB Dont’a Hightower to a four-year contract.

Atlanta Falcons Agreed to Terms with OT Dontari Poe
Dontari Poe impressed everybody with his performance with the Chiefs last season. He was a real truck on the line of scrimmage and even scored a touchdown during a trick play. Unfortunately the team from Kansas had to release him in order to afford Eric Berry. The latter signed a $78 million six-year contract with the Chiefs, which makes him the highest-paid safety in the NFL.
Minnesota Vikings Signed RB Latavius Murray
The 2015 and 2016 Pro Bowl Runningback and iconic figure for Raiders fans, is now a “Viking”. Murray will take Adrian Peterson’s place in Minnesota’s offense.

You probably noticed that the New England Patriots were not that active on the Free Agency market. And just when we thought they have no room to get better, they made the trade of the week! The Patriots traded their last pick in the first round of the draft and a third-rounder for New Orleans Saints’ top receiver Brandin Cooks and Saints’ fourth-round pick. Experts say Cooks is the perfect choice for the team from New England because he will give Tom Brady the desired depth in offence.
