The Jets have concluded a visit with Bills free-agent CB E.J. Gaines, the team announced. Their interest in Gaines sparks two thoughts: It signals that Buster Skrine ($8.5M cap) could be in trouble. Gaines isn't a great position /scheme fit. He comes from a zone-based system and hasn't played the slot since 2014, his rookie year with the Rams. He's also visiting the Browns.

The trade the Seahawks made this week to acquire cornerback C.J. Smith from the Browns has been nullified, a source tells ESPN's Field Yates. There's no impact on the Seahawks' 2018 draft because they had agreed to give Cleveland only a 2020 conditional seventh-round pick for Smith.

In signing offensive lineman Breno Giacomini, the Raiders added competition at right tackle with the massive 10-year vet, who is 6-foot-7, 320 pounds and started all 16 games at right tackle for the Texans last season. Plus, it also afforded a reunion for Giacomini with Raiders offensive line coach Tom Cable, who was his position coach in Seattle from 2011-13. "Tom Cable has been one of the best Teachers/Coach in my life on and off the field," Giacomini Tweeted after Cable was let go by Seattle in January, following seven seasons with the Seahawks. "Who ever hires him is getting a grinder !!!"

The Seahawks are bringing back defensive end Marcus Smith on a one-year deal, a source tells ESPN's Josina Anderson. The deal is worth up to $2.7 million, according to Anderson. Most likely, it carries a lower base value and includes performance incentives that Smith must attain to make the full $2.7 million. Seattle maintains some defensive-line depth with a player who had 2.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles in a rotational role last season.

The Giants released WR/KR Dwayne Harris. It saves them $2.45 million vs salary cap. Giants signed him to a five-year, $17.5 million deal in 2015. Got solid returns on their investment first few years. Harris injured his foot and missed final 11 games of this past season.

Here is the breakdown of Jason Pierre-Paul's contract...In 2018, his $11.25 million base salary is fully-guaranteed, plus a $1 million roster bonus and a $250,000 workout bonus, so his cash and cap figure is $12.5 million. In 2019, his base is $13.25 million plus the same roster and workout bonus, so his cash and cap charge is $14.5 million. $7.5 million of his salary is guaranteed for injury only. So they could essentially cut him after the first year. In 2020, his base salary is $11.25 million (non-guaranteed) with the same roster bonus and workout bonus, equaling a $12.5 million cash and cap charge.

Per a source, former Bears/Redskins OL Tom Compton's singing with the Vikings will become official after he passes a physical. Minnesota gets some additional offensive line depth and could still look to draft that need at No. 30 overall.
