Broncos reportedly poach Ja'Wuan James from the Dolphins by making him NFL's highest-paid right tackle

and that didn't last long, as the Raiders signing now makes James the second highest paid RT

lots of stupid dollars being tossed around this off season

Mitch Morse becomes league’s highest-paid center in Bills deal

Quote:
Maurkice Pouncey‘s run as the highest-paid center in football lasted less than a week.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Buffalo Bills are giving former Kansas City Chiefs center Mitch Morse a contract that will move him to the top of the mountain.

Morse’s new contract with the Bills is set to pay him $44.5 million over four years with $26.5 million in guaranteed money. The average annual value of the contract of $11.125 million a year surpasses the $11 million a season Pouncey was given on his extension with the Steelers.

RB Gore to sign deal with Bills

Quote:
The Buffalo Bills have agreed with running back Frank Gore on a one-year, $2 million deal, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Gore is the NFL's oldest running back -- he will be 36 when the 2019 season starts -- but he showed little sign of being done in 2018. He joins a Bills backfield fronted by 30-year-old running back LeSean McCoy.

A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Gore is NFL's active career rushing leader with 14,748 yards for the San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins. He's No. 4 on the all-time list, trailing only Barry Sanders, Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith, who are all in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Gore needs just 252 rushing yards to reach the 15,000-yard milestone and 522 to pass Sanders to move into third place.

Jets to sign former Vikings LB Barr, source says

Quote:
Former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr intends to sign with the New York Jets, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Jets are planning to use Barr as an outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme, the role he played in college, a source told ESPN's Rich Cimini. He also has the ability to play inside linebacker on first and second down, becoming a nickel rusher on third down.

saw that just a few minutes ago ... so I guess he used the Jets interest to get the Vikings to up their offer?


Anthony Barr stiff arms the Jets, stays with the Vikings

Quote:
There’s a reason that it’s smart to point out that deals negotiated during the free-agency negotiating window aren’t done until they’re done. It’s because they aren’t done until they’re done.

Linebacker Anthony Barr has decided not to sign with the Jets, after all. Instead, Barr will remain with the Vikings, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media.

Multiple reports emerged on Monday night that Barr would leave the Vikings and join the Jets. But the deal isn’t binding until it’s signed, and Barr hadn’t signed the deal.

Barr can sign with the Vikings at any time, since he was under contract with them last season. In all, he has been under contract with the Vikings for five seasons, and the relationship will continue.
