      Bortles signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Analysis: The Rams get a nice bargain with their backup quarterback, as any money Bortles receives on the new contract simply reduces the $6.5 million he's guaranteed from the Jaguars. He should be a big upgrade on 2017-18 backup Sean Mannion and isn't likely to face any serious competition for the No. 2 job this summer. Given the wealth of talent in the Los Angeles offense, Bortles could warrant fantasy consideration if Jared Goff misses time with an injury during the 2019 campaign.

      Ellington's one-year, $895,000 deal with the Patriots includes $25,000 guaranteed, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: Once the Patriots were outbid for slot man Adam Humphries, they turned to lower-cost flyers on Ellington and Maurice Harris ($90,000 guaranteed). Ellington, who the 49ers took in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, hauled in 31 passes for 224 yards and a TD in seven 2018 games (four with the Lions and three with the Texans). If the 5-foot-9, 200-pounder can stay healthy, he can push for a slot role behind Julian Edelman, as well as potentially help out in the return game. Given the terms of his new deal, Ellington isn't a lock to make the team, but his experience playing under Bill O'Brien with Houston and Matt Patricia with Detroit (a pair of coaches with previous ties to the Patriots) should give the 27-year-old a bit of a leg up in terms of familiarity with his new team's system.

    • Howard may be left without a...

      Howard may be left without a role after the Bears signed Mike Davis to join Tarik Cohen in their backfield, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports.

      Analysis: Notoriously unhelpful in the passing game and now coming off a career-worst season with 3.7 yards per carry, Howard reportedly has been shopped on the trade market ahead of the final year of his rookie contract. He isn't a great fit with Bears coach Matt Nagy, but history suggests the 24-year-old can be quite useful in a scheme that heavily relies on zone blocking and doesn't ask him to run many pass routes. Howard restored some of his value in December when he took 88 carries for 399 yards (4.5 average) and four touchdowns in five games, thus completing a third consecutive season without missing a game due to injury. The Bears would probably be willing to trade him for a mid-round pick, but they might as well keep him around if the offers are less than that -- even if they envision Davis replacing Howard's role.

    • Harris' one-year, $1 million deal with...

      Harris' one-year, $1 million deal with the Patriots includes $90,000 guaranteed, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: The 26-year-old caught 28 passes for 304 yards in 12 games for Washington last season, but after he wasn't offered a contract tender as a restricted free agent, the Patriots swooped in and signed the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder to a low-risk deal that also includes an injury split/waiver. Harris doesn't have blazing speed, but he's viewed as a solid route-runner with good hands, which gives him a chance to build a rapport with QB Tom Brady. Beyond Julian Edelman, there's not much certainly with regard to New England's wideout corps, though on top of the free-agent additions of Harris and Bruce Ellington, we suspect that further moves are forthcoming, either through free agency, the draft or the trade route.

      Kelly pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to a charge of second-degree trespassing, Stephanie Butzer of ABC 7 Denver reports.

      Analysis: Kelly was arrested Oct. 23 and released by the Broncos the next day. He won't face any jail time as part of the plea agreement, but he may need to serve a suspension if he ever signs with an NFL team again. The 2017 seventh-round pick beat out Paxton Lynch for the No. 2 quarterback job in Denver last preseason.
