  • Joe Mays LB-KC

    • Mays was released by the Chiefs...

      Mays was released by the Chiefs on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.

      Analysis: Mays injured his wrist during the 2014 preseason and subsequently spent the first eight games of the year on IR-designated to return. He was expected to start upon making his return, but that didn't come to fruition until late in the season, and even then Mays wasn't an every-down player. The Chiefs hope to have Derrick Johnson (Achilles) back in 2015, with the other starting inside linebacker spot likely manned by Josh Mauga. Mays has already played for four different teams through six seasons, and his best-case scenario for 2015 is the opportunity to compete for a starting job.

      Jones-Drew announced on his personal twitter account that he is retiring from the NFL.

      Analysis: A second-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2006, Jones-Drew spent much of his career trying to put lousy teams on his back. While his only playoff appearance came in 2007, he was unquestionably one of the NFL's top running backs from 2009 to 2011, when he topped 1,300 rushing yards and 300 receiving yards in three consecutive seasons. Injuries contributed to a fairly quick drop-off, and MJD managed just 96 yards on 43 carries for the Raiders in 2014. He didn't have the necessary longevity to make a case for the Hall of Fame, but he'll always be popular among fantasy owners, as he was one of the first NFL players to openly embrace fantasy football. He has even dabbled in the world of fantasy analysis, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him land a media gig in the coming years. As for the Raiders, Latavius Murray is the current favorite to head the team's backfield in 2015.

      Easley (knee) -- who finished the 2014 season on IR -- hopes to be ready for OTAs in April, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports.

      Analysis: The report relays that Easley avoided offseason knee surgery and assuming no setbacks, the 2014 first-rounder appears poised to see an expanded role this coming season, in the wake of the Patriots' decision to not pick up Vince Wilfork's 2015 contract option. As a rookie, Easley was limited to 10 tackles and a sack in 11 games, but now further removed from the knee issues that preceded him being drafted by New England, Easley has the potential to emerge as a key pass-rusher for the team in his second pro season.

      The Buccaneers re-signed Jenkins (pectoral) on Thursday, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports.

      Analysis: A first-round draft pick of the Cowboys back in 2008, Jenkins was limited to just one game in 2014, after suffering a pectoral injury in Week 1. He'll likely compete for the nickelback job in 2015, as the Bucs figure to stick with Alterraun Verner and Johnathan Banks as the starting corners.

      The Bengals re-signed Maualuga to a three-year contract Thursday.

      Analysis: Maualuga is a serviceable two-down run stuffer, but his struggles in coverage often keep him off the field, thereby limiting his opportunities to pile up stats. He finished the 2014 season with just 59 tackles (33 solo) in 12 games, after recording 75 tackles (52 solo) over 13 games in 2013.
