NFL News and Rumors

USA TODAY Sports

The latest news and rumors around the NFL.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Tennessee Titans will release Chris Johnson at the end of this week or early next week.

Johnson will immediately become the best RB on the open market, but he won't get anything close to what the titans have been paying him. Appearing Wednesday night on SiriusXM NFL Radio Wednesday, Joel Segal -- Johnson's agent -- said that he spoke with the Titans on Wednesday, and that Johnson definitely will be gone from Tennessee at some point.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed WR Darrius Heyward-Bey to a one-year contract.

Heyward-Bey, the former No. 7 overall pick of the Oakland Raiders, started the first ten games of the season for the Colts in 2013. He caught 29 passes for 309 yards and one score in 2013 but dropped nine passes and played a total of 32 snaps the final four games. He'll be battling for a roster spot with the Steelers.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects Eagles guard Evan Mathis to remain with the Eagles for this season.

The Eagles were reportedly looking to move the All-Pro guard, and it may just take a pick in the third or fourth round to snag him, according to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports.

Mathis is one of the best guards in football, as evidenced by his 46.7 grade from Pro Football Focus, the best of any NFL offensive lineman.

The Washington Redskins agreed to terms with three-time Pro Bowl WR DeSean Jackson less than a week after the he was released by the Eagles.

It's a three-year deal worth $24 million, with $16 million guaranteed, FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo and other media report. TMZ initially reported that Jackson and Washington QB Robert Griffin III hung out in Los Angeles over the weekend for "several hours", and that things went well.
