I wouldn’t mind bringing him in 

Thought the same thing when I read he was cut. He's still a very competent guard and an immediate contributor to increasing the push in the run game.

Jets signed OLB Jake Martin, formerly of the Texans, to a three-year contract.

Martin, 26, was part of the Texans' return when they traded Jadeveon Clowney to Seattle a couple offseason ago. The former sixth-rounder appeared in all 17 games for the Texans last year, starting 14 of those, and was in on a career-high 61% of the defensive snaps, racking up four sacks. He has 13.5 sacks through four years and gives the Jets a capable presence off the edge.

Raiders acquired WR Davante Adams from the Packers in exchange for two 2022 draft picks. 

One of the picks is the Raiders' first-rounder. As part of the deal, franchise-tagged Adams is signing a new five-year, $141.25 million contract, making him the highest-paid wideout in the league. That is an eye-popping average-annual value of $28.25 million. Long-term talks did not seem to be going particularly well between the Packers and Adams, but no one was really considering the possibility of a trade after Aaron Rodgers decided to return to Green Bay. He is now losing the player he called the best receiver he has ever had. In Adams' wake in Green Bay are Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers. As for Adams' fit in Vegas, it is a massive quarterback downgrade, but Derek Carr and Josh McDaniels are going to understand the assignment: Get Adams the ball. Carr is also best at the same levels of the field as Adams, though he does not have Rodgers' finesse with getting the ball into tight spaces. Adams remains a clear-cut top-five WR1, but there will be a hit in production. Hunter Renfrow is the biggest fantasy loser, while it's also not great news for Darren Waller's ceiling.

Would have been nice to get this sort of return on Hopkins…
