2022 NFL free agency news and rumors

March 17

Allen Robinson, WR, Rams

Allen Robinson is on his way to Los Angeles to play with the Rams, per Tom Pelissero. Robinson will join Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods as the Rams try to make it back-to-back Super Bowl wins.

March 16

Chandler Jones, LB, Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders have signed linebacker Chandler Jones, per Tom Pelissero. The Raiders are also trading Yannick Ngakoue for Colts’ CB Rock Ya-Sin, per Ian Rapoport.

Austin Hooper, TE, free agent

The Browns plan on releasing tight end Austin Hooper, per Jeremy Fowler. With David Njoku getting the franchise tag and Hooper’s contract being an albatross, the writing was on the wall for Hooper.

Darious Williams, CB, Jaguars

Williams will land in Jacksonville, per Ian Rapoport. His deal will be for 3-years, with potential for $39 million.

March 15

Morgan Moses, OT, Ravens

This is an affordable move for a consistent tackle in Moses. With Lamar Jackson suffering some injuries a year ago, the Ravens want to bolster that line as much as possible. Moses does this on a team-friendly deal.

Russell Gage, WR, Buccaneers

Gage is expected to sign with Tampa Bay, per Ian Rapoport. He adds depth to a group that lost Antonio Brown and could be without Chris Godwin to start the season.

J.D. McKissic, RB, Bills

McKissic is set to sign a 2-year deal with upside of $8 million, per Adam Schefter. Antonio Gibson should take on a bigger role in Washington.

Randy Gregory, DL, Broncos

After solid reports that Gregory was re-signing with the Cowboys, he apparently changed his mind and went with the Broncos offer, per Mike Garafolo.

James Daniels, OL, Steelers

Daniels will sign a 3-year deal worth up to $26.5 million with the Steelers, per Tom Pelissero.

D.J. Chark, WR, Lions

Chark will sign a one-year deal with the Lions worth up to $12 million, per Adam Schefter. $10 million of the deal is reportedly fully guaranteed.

March 14

Charvarius Ward, CB, 49ers

The 49ers are signing Ward to a three year deal worth up to $42 million with $26.7 million in guarantees, per Adam Schefter.

Justin Reid, S, Chiefs

Reid is signing a three-year, $31.5 million deal with the Chiefs, per Adam Schefter. The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money.

Zay Jones, WR, Jaguars

Jones is expected to sign a three-year, $30 million deal that includes a base of $24 million, per Ian Rapoport.

Evan Engram, TE, Jaguars

Engram is signing a one-year $9 million deal with the Jaguars that could go up to $10 million, per ESPN.

Cedrick Wilson, WR, Dolphins

Wilson will sign a 3-year deal with the Dolphins worth up to $22.8 million, per Jonathon Jones.

JC Jackson, CB, Chargers

The Chargers have made a formal offer to Jackson, per Mike Giardi.

Brandon Scherff, OG, Jaguars

The Jaguars will sign guard Brandon Scherff, per Adam Schefter. Scherff’s deal is three years and worth up to $52.5 million with $30 million fully guaranteed, per Schefter. The deal includes a $1 million Pro Bowl bonus each year.

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, free agent

The Indianapolis Colts have interest in Garoppolo, per Ian Rapoport. With the Steelers adding Trubisky, Garoppolo is likely a bit more coveted by the remaining QB-needy teams.

Mitchell Trubisky, QB, Steelers

Trubisky will sign a 2-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, per Mike Garafolo.

Jarvis Landry, WR, free agent

Landry has been released by the Browns, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Trading for Amari Cooper made this move inevitable. Landry will find plenty of suitors in free agency.

Chase Edmonds, RB, Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins will sign running back Chase Edmonds to a two-year deal worth $12.6 million, per Adam Schefter.

James Conner, RB, Cardinals

Conner will re-sign with the Cardinals on a 3-year deal, per Ian Rapoport. The team appears to have chosen Conner over Edmonds to lead them in 2022.

Quandre Diggs, S, Seahawks

The Seahawks re-signed their star safety to a three-year deal, per Josiah Anderson. It is worth up to $40 million.

Will Dissly, TE, Seahawks

The Seahawks are signing Dissly to a three-year, $24 million deal per Brady Henderson. That’s a nice payday for the tight end.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, free agent

The Patriots have reportedly had inquiries regarding Valdes-Scantling, but no deal is on the way yet per Evan Lazar.

De’Vondre Campbell, LB, Packers

The Packers are bringing back a key member of their defense on a five-year, $50 million deal per multiple media reports. That’s a massive payday for Campbell, who was a massive part of Green Bay’s defense last season.

Braxton Berrios, WR, Jets

Per Adam Schefter, the Jets are bringing Berrios back on a two-year, $12 million contract. It’s a nice deal for a player who can be used in many ways and had a strong finish to the 2021 year.

Mo-Alie Cox, TE, Colts

The Colts are keeping Cox on a three-year deal, per Zak Keefer. This offense is expected to struggle, so this is an interesting move for Indianapolis.
