NFL’s 2016 fifth-year option tracker

The deadline for NFL teams to use the fifth-year option on 2013 first-round picks was late on Monday night.

Here is a look at the 32 players from the first round who had their option picked up or declined:

1. OT Eric Fisher, Kansas City Chiefs: Option picked up
2. OT Luke Joeckel, Jacksonville Jaguars: Declined
3. DE Dion Jordan, Miami Dolphins: N/A
4. OT Lane Johnson, Philadelphia Eagles: Contract extension
5. DE Ezekiel Ansah, Detroit Lions: Option picked up
6. LB Barkevious Mingo, Cleveland Browns: Declined
7. OL Jonathan Cooper, New England Patriots: Declined
8. WR Tavon Austin, Los Angeles Rams: Option picked up
9. CB Dee Milliner, New York Jets: Declined
10. OL Chance Warmack, Tennessee Titans: Declined
11. OT D.J. Fluker, San Diego Chargers: Option picked up
12. CB D.J. Hayden, Oakland Raiders: Declined
13. DE Sheldon Richardson, New York Jets: Option picked up
14. DL Star Lotulelei, Carolina Panthers: Option picked up
15. S Kenny Vaccaro, New Orleans Saints: Option picked up
16. QB EJ Manuel, Buffalo Bills: Declined
17. LB Jarvis Jones, Pittsburgh Steelers: Declined
18. S Eric Reid, San Francisco 49ers: Option picked up
19. OT Justin Pugh, New York Giants: Option picked up
20. OL Kyle Long, Chicago Bears: Option picked up
21. TE Tyler Eifert, Cincinnati Bengals: Option picked up
22. CB Desmond Trufant, Atlanta Falcons: Option picked up
23. DL Sharrif Floyd, Minnesota Vikings: Option picked up
24. LB Bjoern Werner: Released
25. CB Xavier Rhodes, Minnesota Vikings: Option picked up
26. DE Datone Jones, Green Bay Packers: Declined
27. WR DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans: Option picked up
28. DL Sylvester Williams, Denver Broncos: Declined
29. KR Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings: Declined
30. LB Alec Ogletree, Los Angeles Rams: Option picked up
31. C Travis Frederick, Dallas Cowboys: Option picked up
32. S Matt Elam, Baltimore Ravens: Declined

Of the 32 first-round picks, 17 had their fifth-year option picked up. Another 12 had it declined, while three were no longer eligible for the option. Johnson signed a new contract, Werner was released by the Colts, and Jordan was suspended for a season—meaning his contract tolled a year.

There were no major surprises, even though five of the first 10 picks had their options declined.

Joeckel has been so disappointing in Jacksonville that the Jaguars signed offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum in free agency this offseason. Mingo put on serious weight this offseason in an attempt to resurrect his career, while Cooper was traded to New England as part of the Chandler Jones deal. Milliner has missed 27 of 48 games due to injury, and Warmack hasn’t been the all-world guard many pegged him to be.

Manuel, the only quarterback taken in the first round, had his option declined.

As expected, the only two players with 10 or more career sacks from the first round—Ansah and Richardson—had their respective options picked up. So did Reid and Trufant, the only two players from the first 32 picks with more than three interceptions.

While Patterson is the only 2013 first-rounder to make an All-Pro team, his option was declined. Long, who leads the class with three Pro Bowl selections, had his option picked up.

The fifth-year option was put in place for first-round picks after the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement.
