The Cardinals agreed to a one-year deal with off-ball linebacker Krys Barnes, the team announced Saturday.

Barnes will become the third linebacker the Cardinals have signed in free agency, joining Kyzir White and Josh Woods. The team re-signed Ezekiel Turner.

Zaven Collins and Blake Lynch return at the position, and Isaiah Simmons could play linebacker if not at safety.

Barnes spent his first three seasons with the Packers, playing 35 games with 24 starts. He totaled three sacks, four passes defensed and two fumble recoveries.

An ankle injury limited him to six games last season.

The Cardinals begin their offseason conditioning program on April 11 and return to the field with the new coaching staff for the first time on April 25.

Steelers tight end Zach Gentry will remain in Pittsburgh.

Gentry has agreed to stay with the Steelers, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

He was originally recruited to Michigan as a quarterback, but Jim Harbaugh convinced him early on that his NFL future was at tight end, and that’s the position he has played since.

Last season Gentry played in all 17 games, starting 13 of them, and caught 19 passes for 132 yards

That year, Callaway appeared in all 17 games with 11 starts, playing 76 percent of the offensive snaps.

The Browns are adding a veteran receiver.

After trading for Elijah Moore earlier this week, Cleveland has reached a one-year agreement with Marquise Goodwin, according to multiple reports.

Goodwin, 32, spent last season with the Seahawks. He caught 27 passes for 387 yards with four touchdowns in 13 games with two starts.

A third-round pick in the 2013 draft, Goodwin spent his first four seasons with Buffalo before signing with the 49ers in free agency in 2017. That was his best season, as he started all 16 games for San Francisco and caught 56 passes for 962 yards with a pair of touchdowns.

Though Cleveland had Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones under contract at receiver, the club needed some more depth at the position. Now the Browns have added Moore and Goodwin this week to work with quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The Browns also have eight picks in the 2023 draft, starting with No. 74 overall in the third round.

The Panthers have added another receiver.

After trading DJ Moore to the Bears as part of the deal for the No. 1 overall pick and signing Adam Thielen, Carolina has agreed to terms with DJ Chark on a one-year deal, the team announced on Friday.

Chark visited with the Panthers last week.

A second-round pick in 2018, Chark spent last season with the Lions. He caught 30 passes for 502 yards with three touchdowns in 11 games with 10 starts.

Chark’s best season was in 2019, when he caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards with eight TDs. He missed most of the 2021 season with a fractured ankle.

In 54 career games, Clark has 177 receptions for 2,544 yards with 18 TDs.

With the Panthers expected to draft a quarterback at No. 1 overall, the young signal-caller will now have a pair of veteran receivers to rely upon in his rookie season.

The Ravens may not have things settled with their quarterback. But they’re still adding a veteran receiver.

Baltimore is signing Nelson Agholor to a one-year deal worth $3.25 million, according to multiple reports.

Agholor can also earn an additional $3 million in incentives.

A first-round pick in the 2015 draft, Agholor spent his last two seasons with the Patriots. He caught 31 passes for 362 passes with two touchdowns in 2022.

After playing his first five years with the Eagles, Agholor put up his best season with the Raiders in 2020 when he caught 48 passes for 896 yards with eight touchdowns.

In eight seasons, Agholor has caught 340 passes for 4,246 yards with 31 TDs.

Agholor went on a free-agent visit with Baltimore earlier this week.

Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta ruffled some feathers when he talked about his team’s record in drafting receivers at the scouting combine. We’ll see if this latest free agent signing ends up providing some consistency at the position.
