Christine Michael re-signs with Colts
The Indianapolis Colts re-signed running back Christine Michael.
Michael, a 2013 second-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, was signed by the Colts last June before suffering an injury during minicamp that sidelined him for the entire season. The 27-year-old's career has been full of hype and failed expectations but he could potentially settle in as a change-of-pace option behind Marlon Mack in Indianapolis' backfield.
Michael has rushed 254 times for 1,080 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and 7 touchdowns across 37 games (nine starts) for his career.
Marshawn Lynch takes pay cut to stay with Raiders
Running back Marshawn Lynch restructured his contract and took a $500,000 pay cut to stay with the Oakland Raiders, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
There was speculation that the Raiders might move on from Lynch after signing Doug Martin, but this ensures that he will be with the team in 2018.
In 2017, Lynch rushed for 891 yards and 7 touchdowns over 15 games.
Lions sign Luke Willson to 1-year, $2.5 million contract
The Detroit Lions signed tight end Luke Willson, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks, to a 1-year, $2.5 million contract.
Willson will take over as the Lions' new number-one tight end, following Eric Ebron's release and Darren Fells departure to the Cleveland Browns. The 28-year-old tight end never saw more than 40 targets in Seattle but he should see more opportunity in Detroit.
Willson averaged 3.6 FanDuel points last season, with 15 (22 targets) catches for 153 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Bills' Zay Jones arrested, charged with felony vandalism
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones was arrested Monday night in Los Angeles and charged with felony vandalism.
Jones, while completely nude, allegedly tried to jump out of a window on the 30th floor of an L.A. hotel on Monday night and then proceeded to smash his foot through a window. There was a significant amount of blood and the 21-year-old wideout is currently being held at USC medical center. The video can be seen at the link below.
Jones averaged 4.0 FanDuel points in his first NFL season, with 27 receptions (74 targets) for 316 yards and 2 touchdowns.
49ers' Richard Sherman (Achilles) expects to return by May or June
Per NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman said Tuesday, "I'll be back on the field May, June."
Sherman was speaking on his potential return during his introductory press conference. The 29-year-old suffered a season-ending Achilles injury and had a procedure done to remove bone spurs. If this is true, he should be a full-go for training camp and beyond.
In 9 games, Sherman counted up 25 tackles, 7 passes defensed and 2 interceptions with Seattle this past season.
Eric Decker visiting Raiders on Tuesday
Free agent wide receiver Eric Decker is visiting the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, reports The Athletic's Vic Tafur.
Decker's one-year deal with Tennessee ran out, so we knew he'd be looking elsewhere at age 31. It appeared that he'd be checking out New Orleans, but he's actually headed to Oakland. It's an interesting spot given the Raiders just signed veteran Jordy Nelson and let Michael Crabtree walk. Seth Roberts' slot role could be in jeopardy.
In his lone year with the Titans, Decker produced 54 catches, 563 yards and just a single score in 16 games.
