The Seahawks have agreed to terms with defensive end Benson Mayowa, his agent, David Canter, announced. The deal is for one year, a source tells ESPN. The 28-year-old Mayowa recorded a career-high seven sacks on only 270 defensive snaps last year with the Raiders. He gives the Seahawks another complementary edge-rusher to go along with Bruce Irvin, but his addition doesn't mean they're done at that position. They still need a primary pass-rusher and Jadeveon Clowney remains available.

No, the Jets aren't rushing out to pursue free-agent DE Jadeveon Clowney. No, GM Joe Douglas hasn't had multiple conversations with Clowney's agent. Asked about interest in Clowney, Douglas said today, "We're going to do our due diligence on everybody that's out there, especially at the edge-rushing position. I'm not going to get into the specifics or the details of the conversations we've had." Within the organization, he meant. So don't get your hopes up on Clowney to the Jets.

The Patriots have informed QB Cody Kessler that he is being released, a source confirms. Kessler was the No. 3 quarterback behind Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer, and the Patriots are expected to add a third, most likely in the draft later this month. The Patriots generally don't carry four quarterbacks, so this gives Kessler a chance to hook on elsewhere before the draft, and opens the door for the Patriots to bring in a rookie. NFL Network had the initial report.

Sean Payton called himself a “big dummy” for suggesting on ESPN's Get Up on Tuesday morning that Drew Brees had announced this would be his “final season.” Payton said it's “not like a big secret that I let out of the bag.” He said he just had it in his mind that this offseason was unique since Brees spent so much time considering retirement before announcing he'd come back. “I honestly don't know if it's his last year,” Payton said. “Man, that thing blew up on me.”

Titans GM Jon Robinson says they'd like to agree to a long-term deal with Derrick Henry. "He's an important part of our football team. I've spoken to his representatives after we've used the tag. And we want to continue to have those discussion and back and forths in hopes of reaching some kind of long term agreement. We will kick those conversations off again probably, certainly before training camp gets ramped up and going."

The Browns nabbed the veteran rotation pass rusher they've been on the hunt for in Adrian Clayborn, who signed Tuesday on a two-year deal worth up to $6.75 million. Clayborn played in 15 games and delivered four sacks for the Falcons last year. He should provide some much needed help to star pass rusher Myles Garrett. Of the 111 players with 500 pass rush snaps over the last two seasons, Garrett and Clayborn rank 1 and 2 in QB pressure rate, respectively.
