      With the recent departure of Da'Norris Searcy in free agency, Williams could get the opportunity to start at the open spot at safety this season across from Aaron Williams, BuffaloBills.com reports.

      Analysis: He's the frontrunner right now, maybe a clear one, as the Bills used their big free agent money on offense and don't have a lot left to spend. They also likely won't trust a rookie in that spot. Williams could get some competition from Bacarri Rambo, Jonathan Meeks, and Kenny Ladler, but the Bills seem to like Williams and it looks like the third-year player might get his shot in 2015. Williams logged 52 total tackles and a pick while playing a modest 49 percent of the defensive snaps last season, so he merits some watching if he does win a starting gig.

      Boykin signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Friday, ESPN's David Newton reports.

      Analysis: Boykin caught just three passes for the Packers in 2014, after hauling in 49-of-82 targets for 681 yards and three touchdowns the previous season. He did well to land with a team that lacks complements to Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen, but Boykin will still have to prove in training camp that he's worthy of a role in the Carolina offense. With Benjamin locked in as the No. 1 wideout, the likes of Boykin, Jerricho Cotchery, Philly Brown, Ted Ginn and Brenton Bersin could all be part of a wide-open competition for snaps. Of course, the Panthers may still opt to address the position in April's draft.

      Ball signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Friday, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.

      Analysis: The 29-year-old Ball has played in 93 NFL games, getting the start in 44 of those contests. He largely struggled in Jacksonville the past two seasons, and he'll now join a team that has Tim Jennings and Kyle Fuller on the roster. Ball could compete with incumbent Demontre Hurst for the nickelback role.

      Newman agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Vikings on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Analysis: Newman will likely compete with Captain Munnerlyn and Xavier Rhodes for a starting spot at corner, but will give the Vikings extra depth at the position wither way.

    • Lions head coach Jim Caldwell wants...

      Lions head coach Jim Caldwell wants Stafford to throw the ball less frequently in 2015, the Detroit Free Press reports. "When I tell you that we're not going to throw the ball any more than we threw it (last year), that's a fact," Caldwell said. "We're probably not going to throw it (more). If we do throw it more, that means we're behind, we're struggling, we're not winning, we're not a very good football team, plain and simple."

      Analysis: This isn't much more than the typical offseason coach-speak about maintaining a balanced offense, and while there's little doubt coach Caldwell wants to run more often, game situation and personnel tend to trump all else. Not only do the Lions have far more invested in their passing-game personnel, but they'll also be one of the more popular candidates to regress from their 2014 record (11-5).
