  Lions | Detroit may be interested in two DTs    Sat May 19, 01:07 PM

Free-agent DT Alan Branch (Patriots) and DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Patriots) could be options for the Detroit Lions because they are familiar with head coach Matt Patricia's defensive scheme, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein.

Footballguys view: The Patriots did not exercise Branch's option, and he's gotten little to no interest on the open market. It makes sense to reunite him with Patricia, and the Lions should have interest as they look for a Haloti Ngata replacement.

  Redskins | Ricky Jean-Francois signs    Thu Feb 26, 06:56 PM

Free-agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Colts) signed a three-year deal with the Washington Redskins Thursday, Feb. 26. The deal is worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed and a total value of $11.25 million.

Footballguys view: The move makes a lot of sense for both sides. Washington general manager Scot McCloughan has ties to Jean-Francois. When he was GM of the 49ers, McCloughan selected Jean-Francois with a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NFL draft. Jean-Francois gets to sign early before the real hysteria of free agency begins.

  49ers | Ricky Jean-Francois to visit    Wed Feb 25, 12:07 PM

Free-agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Colts) is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The 49ers interest makes a ton of sense. Jean-Francois played under new head coach Jim Tomsula when he was with the team from 2009-2012. The 49ers need a backup plan in case Justin Smith decides to retire.

  Redskins | Meeting with Ricky Jean-Francois    Wed Feb 25, 12:07 PM

Free-agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Colts) is scheduled to meet with the Washington Redskins this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts made the move to get rid of Jean-Francois in an effort to gain more salary cap space. He could still be an effective player for the right team. Washington could use Jean-Francois at left end because they're expected to lose Jarvis Jenkins in free agency.

Footballguys view: Too many players on the defensive side of the ball are banged up, but at least they are all practicing. The Chiefs will lean on Jamaal Charles, so expect the poor run defense to get a work out.
