The Chicago Bears released veteran safety Antrel Rolle after one injury-plagued season with the team.
Rolle, 33, played in just seven games due to ankle and knee injuries. He signed a three-year, $11.25 million deal as a free agent in March, 2015.
Rolle didn’t intercept a pass last season after accumulating 26 during his first 10 NFL seasons. The three-time Pro Bowler had a career-high six interceptions in 2013 with the Giants.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay hopes to get a contract deal done with quarterback Andrew Luck done as soon as possible, but backed off a bit on his earlier July 4th weekend timetable. “Both sides believe soon the better if possible,” Irsay said. “And both sides believe sooner is possible.”
Glenn Gronkowski, a Kansas State fullback and the youngest brother of Rob Gronkowski, agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent.
The Seahawks went into the draft with Russell Wilson as the only quarterback on the roster and did not use any of their 10 picks on a quarterback. Seattle also invited Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams to attend rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis.
The San Diego Chargers reached agreement with 20 undrafted free agents, including quarterback Mike Bercovici of Arizona State.
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed nine undrafted free agents, including quarterback Max Wittek of Hawaii.
