The New York Jets will pick third in the NFL draft after trading with the Indianapolis Colts. After failing to land Kirk Cousins, the New York Jets have moved up in the NFL draft, acquiring the No. 3 overall pick from the Indianapolis Colts for the No. 6 overall pick and three second-round picks.

The Arizona Cardinals will sign former New York Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh, according to multiple reports Friday. Per NFL Network, the deal will be for five years and just over $45 million, which would put Pugh's annual average in the top 10 among NFL guards. Pugh, 27, played primarily guard for the Giants after being drafted in the first round in 2013, but he also spent time at tackle, mostly on the right with the occasional cameo on the left side.

After spending most of his first four seasons in Minnesota as a part-time back, Jerick McKinnon wanted to find a spot in free agency where he could show off his ability as a featured runner. San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan saw enough from his film over those years to decide he was the player they wanted to be their starting running back, giving him a four-year deal that will guarantee him nearly $12 million in 2018. ''It was big for me,'' McKinnon said Thursday.

After the addition of Nate Solder to play left tackle in free agency, it was inevitable that Ereck Flowers was going to be changing positions for the New York Giants.

The New York Giants have signed offensive tackle Nate Solder and added former Arizona Cardinals linebacker Kareem Martin. The Giants announced the signings late Thursday night, more than a day after free-agency opened. Sources close to the team had confirmed on Wednesday the agreement with Solder, the former New England Patriots left tackle.

The New England Patriots chased a sixth ring hard last season, and it almost paid off. Little has gone right in New England since Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz scored what would be the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl LII. The Patriots went all-in for a title last season, and this offseason hasn’t been kind.

Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas plans to retire rather than returning for his 12th NFL season, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on Wednesday afternoon, two hours before the start of free agency. "Playing in the NFL has taken a toll on my body and I can no longer physically compete like I need to," Thomas said Wednesday in a statement. Browns general manager John Dorsey did not travel to Norman, Okla., for the pro day workout of draft prospect Baker Mayfield because of the Thomas situation and official start of free agency.

The New York Giants have started fixing their woeful offensive line. A person familiar with the negotiations says the team has an agreement with offensive tackle Nate Solder. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Giants did not announced the deal with the former New England Patriots left tackle when free agency kicked off Wednesday.
