One-year deal Veteran quarterback Chase Daniel has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan on Wednesday. (ESPN) FF Today's Take: Daniel, a career backup, backed up Drew Brees from 2009-2012 but has never had the opportunity to land a starting job. With Luke McCown already on the roster, the two will battle hold the clipboard for Brees in 2017.

Cardinals still looking for No.2 RB Arians said Andre Ellington is coming back as a wide receiver. Will meet in the wide receivers room. (Darren Urban on Twitter) FF Today's Take: Ellington has played running back his first five years in the league and succeeded in a change-of-pace role catching 85 passes during his first two seasons in Ariona. At 5-9, 199 lbs, he'll most likely be used out of slot and will receive the occasional carry our of the backfield but should be no better than the fourth option in the offense.

31-1 vote opens door for Las Vegas Raiders The Oakland Raiders have received conditional approval from the National Football League to relocate the franchise to Las Vegas, Nevada. The Raiders were born in Oakland and Oakland will always be part of our DNA. We know that some fans will be disappointed and even angry, but we hope that they do not direct that frustration to the players, coaches and staff. We plan to play at the Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, and hope to stay there as the Oakland Raiders until the new stadium opens. (Raiders.com) FF Today's Take: Miami was the only team to cast a no vote. The Raiders history in Oakland is coming to an end and this will mark the third team in the last 14 months to change locations. The Raiders join the Rams and Chargers as recent teams to relocate.

Free agency is one of my favorite parts of football. This is probably because my favorite team never seems to be in the playoffs so I guess it gives me a false sense of hope going into the next season. A couple of needs get fulfilled with players that I haven’t seen play in the Buccaneer’s system and all of a sudden I can argue them into the playoffs in my head. The Jaguars also always look like they’ve built a dangerous roster in the offseason, and then we remember by week 2 that Blake Bortles is still the quarterback. Free agency answers a lot of questions for fantasy football as well. Every year, the beginning of March changes the destiny of at least a few players that might be question marks in keeper leagues. Just because the player takes the biggest check doesn’t mean that they are putting themselves in the best position to put up their best possible individual numbers. I’m going to do my best to decipher the first week of signings and trades right here. This was a busier year than last year for the skill positions as far as I remember, so if I forget someone you wanted to read about, forgive me.

Stewart under contract through 2018 On Friday, the team announced the one-year extension of running back Jonathan Stewart, locking him in through 2018. Stewart, 30, has battled injuries often throughout his lengthy career but rushed for 824 yards and nine touchdowns last season and was a Pro-Bowler in 2015. (Charlotte Observer) FF Today's Take: Stewart was set to count over $8 million against the cap so the extension will likely lessen that number plus add another year of control for the Panthers. Carolina is said to be in the running back market and could select Leonard Fournette with the 8th overall pick.
