2023 NFL free agency and trade tracker, live updates: Latest rumors, signings and moves throughout Week 2
Keep it locked here for the latest NFL free agency buzz and updates
We are about two weeks through NFL free agency with all the offseason moves and trades it brings, but there is still plenty to figure out. When will the Aaron Rodgers trade officially happen? Is Odell Beckham Jr. close to signing with a new club? And when will a potential suitor approach Lamar Jackson? We also have to keep an eye on DeAndre Hopkins, as the Arizona Cardinals wideout is expected to be traded sometime this offseason.
Maybe the big wave of signings has come and gone, but with the draft right around the corner, all 32 teams are continuing to explore the market to fill out rosters for the summer. There are still plenty of intriguing players out there looking for new deals.
As we continue to follow along on this Friday, here's a rundown of what you need to know:
We've got you covered during this free agent period. In our live blog below, you'll see every important rumor and signing that goes down over this stretch.
Former Steelers WR/KR Steven Sims is signing with the Texans, which increases the Steelers need for a receiver after the team traded Chase Claypool right before last year's deadline. The Steelers are getting Calvin Austin III back from injury after he missed his entire rookie season.
Interesting signing for Denver given the rumors that the team is open to trading either Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton or KJ Hamler. Callaway caught six touchdowns in 2021 (his final season with Payton) but just one last season while playing with Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston.
The Lions announced that they have re-signed QB Nate Sudfeld.
Thursday, ESPN reported that former Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott hadto the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles. These are not necessarily teams that have reached out to Zeke, but teams he would consider playing for.
It remains to be seen what level of interest Cincinnati, New York or Philly would actually have in Elliott, but it sounds like one of those teams has already pulled themselves out of the running. Thursday, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor was asked bout Zeke's reported interest in his team, and he said he likes his team where it's at right now.
Per ESPN, the Eagles are giving right tackle Lane Johnson a one-year, $33.445 million extension that includes $30 million guaranteed. The 32-year-old Johnson is actually under contract through the 2025 season, so this extension keeps him in the fold through 2026.
As it stood before this extension, Johnson was the fourth highest-paid right tackle in the NFL in terms of AAV, per Over The Cap ($18M). NFL Media reports that Johnson's contract is now basically for four years, $80.75 million with $30 million guaranteed.
