One-year deal for both

Former Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is signing a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, per source.

Former Cowboys and Giants RB Rod Smith also is re-signing with the Raiders on a one-year deal, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Agholor has the physical tools to play in this league but has been hampered by inconsistencies including too many drops. His best season came in 2017 (62-768-8) when he finished at the WR21 for the Eagles. With a current depth chart of Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow and Agholor, the Raiders are still lacking a true play-maker at the position.

Two-year, $16 million deal

Emmanuel Sanders had appealing NFC options. Sanders spoke with the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers, but preferred to wind up with the New Orleans Saints, where he land d a two-year, $16 million deal worth up to $19 million. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This is a good move for the Saints who have been searching for a viable No.2 receiver for multiple seasons. He’ll play second fiddle to Michael Thomas and have to fight for targets with TE Jared Cook, but Sanders will be a worthy middle-round option in 2020 redraft leagues.

2-year deal, $13.5M guaranteed

Source: The #Broncos and RB Melvin Gordon have agreed to terms on a 2-year deal worth $16M with $13.5M guaranteed. The former #Chargers star stays in the division, creating a strong 1-2 punch with Phillip Lindsay. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: That sound you hear is Phillip Lindsay’s fantasy stock hitting the floor. Gordon will in all likelihood be the lead back in the Broncos rotation but assuming Lindsay remains in Denver, this backfield just become a fantasy headache.

Steelers bring in TE Eric Ebron, two-year deal

Two-year, $12 million deal

Former Colts TE Eric Ebron is going to the Steelers on a two-year, $12 million deal, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Steelers restructured Vance McDonald’s contract a few days ago giving him a $5.5 base salary, so it appears Pittsburgh will have two viable pass-catching tight ends in 2020. Ebron missed five games last season and took a tumble from his top 5 fantasy finish in 2018. Unless it’s clear Ebron is the lead tight end, he’ll likely come in with a TE2 fantasy value.

$5 million

Falcons to sign Todd Gurley to one-year, $5 million deal ?” CONFIRMED. (D. Orlando Ledbetter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Well, that didn’t take long. The Falcons and Dolphins had rumored interest in a Gurley trade before his release. This is a decent landing spot as the Falcons have released Devonta Freeman giving Gurley a clear path to a workhorse load if his knees and ankles are able to handle it. Ito Smith, Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison round out the running back depth chart.
