—Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick told The Associated Press on Friday, “You can say I’ve been released, yes” when asked if Tennessee had cut him. He started nine games for the Titans last season and went 217 of 350 for 2,454 yards with 14 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. The 31-year-old Fitzpatrick has thrown for 16,790 yards, 106 touchdowns and 93 interceptions in 85 career games.

The Titans also agreed to a multiyear deal with linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who spent the last six years with the Denver Broncos. During the 2012 season, Woodyard was the only player in the NFL with at least 100 tackles, five sacks and three interceptions.

—Minnesota re-signed receiver Jerome Simpson, who bounced back from an injury-plagued first season with the team in 2012 with a solid season. He caught 48 passes for a career-high 726 yards in 2013.

—Linebacker Jameel McClain joined the Giants. He started 55 games for Baltimore and won a Super Bowl ring.

—San Francisco signed cornerback Chris Cook to a one-year deal. Cook spent his four NFL seasons with Minnesota.

—New Orleans re-signed linebacker and special teams player Ramon Humber to a one-year contract.

—Carolina added a player when it signed tight end Mike McNeill from the St. Louis Rams to a two-year contract. McNeill mostly is a blocking tight end.

—Free agent linebacker Will Herring isn’t joining the Cowboys after all. The team reported the signing on its website Thursday, but said Friday the deal was off in “a mutual parting of the ways that had to do with the language of the contract.”
