The Bills’ big question mark regarding safety has been resolved, and the duo of Jordan Poyer and Miki Hyde will be back for at least one more season. Prior to becoming a free agent, Poyer expressed his excitement about exploring the market, but it’s clear the 2021 All-Pro first team didn’t find the deals he was looking for. Poyer, who turns 32 in April, is instead returning to fill a big security hole for the Bills opposite Hyde, with whom he has been working alongside since 2017. Alaina Getzenberg

The Dolphins re-signed Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. to strengthen the backfield. Mostert had his healthiest season since 2019 and set a rushing record in 2022 with 891 yards to lead the Dolphins. Miami traded Wilson for a fifth-round pick before the trade expired last year, and he formed an impressive tandem with Mostert. Both defensemen will likely return to their roles in 2023, hoping a full offseason together in Miami will help the Dolphins handle the ball more effectively than they did last season (25th in yards per game). –Marcel Louis-Jacques

New England Patriots
The Patriots signed Juju Smith-Schuster to replace Jacobi Meyers. At 6ft 1,215lbs, the Smith-Schuster joins the top of the wide receiver depth chart, which includes a big boundary target in DeVante Parker (6-3, 219), a burner with the potential to further develop as a slender. a cross country runner in Tyquan Thornton (6-2, 182) and a high energy slot in Kendrick Bourne (6-1, 190). — Mike Reiss

New York Jets
Maybe quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a wish list, maybe he doesn’t. Regardless, signing Allen Lazard to the Jets would make Rodgers happy if he became their quarterback. Rodgers reportedly wanted Lazard and general manager Joe Douglas delivered him. It’s likely the Jets would have made the move anyway, because offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, the Packers’ former offensive coordinator, holds Lazard in high regard. This reinforces rumors that Corey Davis could be released or traded. In terms of talent, Lazard and the healthy Davis have probably drifted apart, but Lazar, 27, is a year younger and more cap-friendly than the frequently injured Davis. –– Rich Jiminy

The Ravens retained No. 3 running back to Justice Hill and one of the best players on their special teams. After missing the entire 2021 season with an Achilles injury, Hill had an incredible resurgence last season. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry. Hill, selected four years ago in the fourth round, is the only remaining player from Baltimore’s eight-man draft class in 2019. — Jamison Hensley

The Bengals invested heavily in defense of Joe Burrow’s passes, signing Orlando Brown’s tackle. According to Sportzshala’s Jeremy Fowler, the $31 million signing bonus Cincinnati is giving Brown is considered the highest ever given to a hitter. That amount exceeds the combined guaranteed money received by offensive linemen Ted Karras, Alex Kappa and Lael Collins when they signed with the Bengals in 2022. a unit that was ranked 30th in pass-blocking winning percentage last season. — Ben Baby

The Browns got one of the best free agent defensive tackles in Dalvin Tomlinson, filling their biggest need. Tomlinson ranked 34th among all NFL inside defensemen in winning pass percentage (7.3%) and was the Vikings’ third-highest pressure (5.3%) last season. He also ranked 32nd last year in run-stop winnings (33.2%) among DTs, ahead of any DT with Cleveland last season. This should help improve a defense that was one of the worst in the league last year. — Jake Trotter

Larry Ogunjobi re-signed a three-year, $28.75 million defensive line contract with the Steelers. Ogunjobi was a game-changer last season after signing a one-year, $8 million deal last offseason after his contract with Chicago fell through after a failed physical due to a foot injury. He played well for the Steelers with seven tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, and 11 quarterback bats—good enough to earn a big paycheck in Pittsburgh. — Brook Pryor

The Texans signed Robert Woods to a two-year, $15.25 million contract with a full $10 million guarantee, sources said. The Texans added an experienced wide receiver familiar with Bobby Slovik’s offensive coordinator system. Woods played for Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVeigh from 2017 to 2021, with McVeigh using a similar formation. Under McVeigh, Woods had 367 receptions for 4,626 yards, including two seasons in which he passed for 1,000+ yards and 23 touchdowns in five seasons (2016–2021) with the Rams. The addition adds depth to the position and could soften the blow of a potential loss to Brandin Cooke, who asked for a trade last season and has been open about not wanting to be part of a rebuilding team. – Favorite DJ

The Colts and kicker Matt Gaye agreed to a four-year, $22.5 million deal. The Colts have had a lot of kicker inconsistency since Adam Vinatieri’s last season in 2019. The likely Hall of Famer struggled with injuries that season and had one of the worst seasons of his distinguished career. This was followed by a dramatic decline for Rodrigo Blankenship last season when the Colts cut him a week later. The signing of Gay brings stability to a key position. He’s made 60 of 64 field goals for the Rams over the past two seasons. — Steven Holder

The Jags would like to play draft rather than free will, which may explain why they haven’t made so many moves. Jacksonville re-signed defenseman Andrew Wingard and cornerback Tevon Campbell. –Michael DiRocco
Analysis of every Jaguars signing
After three disappointing seasons with the Raiders, Arden Key experienced a breakout season in his only season in San Francisco, when he set career records for sacks (6.5) and quarterback hits (17). Key signed a one-year deal with the Jaguars ahead of last season and finished with 4.5 sacks, 15 quarterback hits and three starts. The Titans needed to find an experienced pass rusher after Bud Dupree’s release in order to save money. Key is likely to start with Harold Landry III, who is returning from an ACL tear at training camp last year.— Turron Davenport

The Broncos signed offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defenseman Ben Powers to protect Russell Wilson. McGlinchey has been at the top of the Broncos’ priority list since the first meetings between HR and Sean Payton’s new coaching staff. McGlinchey is finishing a season in which he posted the second highest winning block percentage (89.6%) of his career, as well as the highest winning block percentage (81.3%) of his career. Powers, who started with the Ravens on both left and right, potentially gives the Broncos some extra power in the middle of the formation. Wilson noticed last season that his footwork and decision-making ability had deteriorated, especially as the offense continued to play in three sets because the Broncos couldn’t control attacking opponents. — Jeff Legvold

Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs reached an agreement with former Jaguar forward Jawaan Taylor on a four-year, $80 million deal. The Chiefs have a new starting left tackle to replace Orlando Brown Jr., who spent two seasons with the Chiefs, most recently as a franchise player. Taylor has been almost exclusively the right player for the Jaguars, so he will have to switch sides of the line. — Adam Teicher

Las Vegas Raiders
Jacobi Meyers has agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract with the Raiders as the New England-Las Vegas connection continues. The Raiders add a No. 2 legitimate receiver behind All-Pro Davante Adams. Meyers, who played under Raiders coach Josh McDaniels for three seasons, led the Patriots with 804 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 67 receptions last season. He’s a big target at 6ft 2in and 200lbs, and is especially good between the numbers, adding another weapon for new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. — Paul Gutierrez

Los Angeles Chargers
Midfielder Eric Kendricks will join the Chargers on a two-year deal. The Chargers took the place of Kendricks, a nine-year-old pro who led the Vikings last season with 137 tackles. In Los Angeles, Kendricks will take the starting position vacated by unrestricted free agent Drew Tranquill, which the Bolts are not expected to retain.
