      Spiller, about to become a free agent, appeared on the NFL Network on Tuesday and said he won't be returning to Buffalo. He also said the Bills called him and thanked him for his service following the LeSean McCoy trade, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

      Analysis: The Bills traded for McCoy on Tuesday afternoon and paid a high price to do so, both in terms of salary and in giving up Kiko Alonso. Spiller already seemed like he was ready to look elsewhere anyway, but given how much he'd cost to bring back into the mix, there's no way the Bills are spending that kind of additional money at the running back position.

      McCoy has been traded to Buffalo in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

      Analysis: McCoy would have represented nearly a $12 million cap hit for the Eagles in 2015, but they'll instead ship him out of town in a move that significantly bolsters their defense. The 26-year-old back was one of the top players taken in standard fantasy drafts in 2014, but he didn't really live up to that ADP, rushing for 1,319 yards and recording just five combined touchdowns. His projected fantasy value takes a bit of a hit in Buffalo, where a slower-paced team will mean fewer opportunities for touches. On the bright side, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are both on expiring contracts, so McCoy may be able to earn the elusive title of "feature" back. He'll still have to hold off Anthony Dixon and former teammate Bryce Brown for touches, however.

      The Raiders released Branch, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

      Analysis: Branch's release frees up nearly $3 million in salary cap space for the Raiders in advance of free agency. Branch has been a productive IDP when healthy, but he's been limited to just five games over the last two seasons, including three in 2014 (in which he recorded 30 tackles).

      The Eagles will release Cole, ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: Given his ability to work in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defensive scheme, the 32-year-pld linebacker should have little trouble securing a new deal on the heels of a 2014 season in which he recorded 52 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 15 games for the Eagles.

    • According to head coach Sean Payton,...

      According to head coach Sean Payton, Byrd (knee) is a few weeks away from being at full strength after suffering a season-ending meniscus tear in his knee last year, reports Fox Sports. "He's doing well," Payton said. "His rehab is on schedule. He'll be cleared for minicamp. We're looking at about 2 or 3 weeks from him being 100 percent."

      Analysis: Byrd's 2014 season ended in Week 4 prematurely, but even before his injury, the Saints' big offseason signing struggled at times. Still, with 22 interceptions in his first five NFL seasons in Buffalo, there's hope that Byrd can rebound in his second season in New Orleans, making him a decent sleeper option in IDP leagues.
