Robert Turbin is going back to Indy. 2-yr deal worth up to $4.1 M.
With David Johnson’s emergence as one of the best backs in the NFL, Ellington’s work dwindled to career-lows in all categories. He finished with 96 yards rushing on 34 carries last season, along with 12 receptions for 85 yards.
He'll serve as Johnson's primary backup. He's a wise handcuff for Johnson owners since he's a proven commodity.

Wright had 94 catches for 1079 yards and two touchdowns on 139 targets in his second season, but it’s been pretty downhill since then. He gained 715 yards in 2014, 408 yards in 2015 and finally 416 yards last year. He’ll provide depth behind presumed starters Cameron Meredith and Kevin White.

Per a source, here are the terms for former Bucs wide receiver Russell Shepard, now with the Panthers: It's a three-year deal worth $10.5 million. It includes a $2 million signing bonus and $2.5 million guaranteed. He'll make $4 million in the first year.
Williams was the #62 fantasy receiver (PPR) last year despite the fact that Dez Bryant essentially missed four games. Expect more of the same from Williams in 2017.
The New England Patriots acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks from the New Orleans Saints on Friday for a first- and third-round pick in the upcoming draft, multiple sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini.
The Patriots love receivers who can turn a short catch into a long gainer and with his speed, Cooks fits the bill. The signing is great for Tom Brady, but it's a downgrade for Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell. Cooks figures to rank as a WR2 in early projections since the Patriots have several mouths to feed. In New Orleans, it's a small downgrade for Drew Brees while Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and newcomer Ted Ginn will pick up the slack.
Tight end Jared Cook, meanwhile, will sign elsewhere as a free agent, a source told ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
When the Packers broke off negotiations with Jared Cook earlier today, it looked like Green Bay would be without a dynamic presence at tight end. Not so fast. Bennett finished the season as the #10 fantasy tight end, but he was pretty nicked up for most the season, which possibly limited his production. He still needs to undergo surgery to clean up his ankle, but provided he makes a full recovery, this is a great pickup for the Packers. Bennett should be a solid TE1 in 2017.
Terrelle Pryor found a new home.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports the receiver signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins for $8 million.
Pryor finished the season as the #21 receiver, though his numbers dipped over the final month of the season. Still, his output in the first 12 games -- 5.2 catches for 71 yards and 0.33 TD, #11 WR -- is very encouraging. He’d certainly benefit from an upgrade at quarterback, and should get one if Kirk Cousins remains in Washington.
As it turns out, the Browns have more than one expensive quarterback they didn’t really want.
Or at least, they did.
Griffin looked pretty good in the preseason, but only appeared in five games for the Browns compiling 886 yards on 147 pass attempts (6.0 YPA) while throwing more interceptions (3) than touchdowns (2). He did run for 38 yards per game and found the endzone twice.
