Jets | Champ Bailey unlikely Mon Sep 1, 02:45 AM
Although the New York Jets are in need of cornerbacks, they are unlikely to pursue free-agent CB Champ Bailey, who was cut by the New Orleans Saints on Saturday, Aug. 30. The thinking is if Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan believes Bailey has lost a step, then Jets coach Rex Ryan would not take a chance on him.
|Footballguys view: Bailey is not the same player he used to be. The Lisfranc injury he suffered in 2013 with the Broncos slowed him down all last season. Bailey could perhaps make a team if he switched to free safety in the twilight of his Hall of Fame career.|

Chargers | Vincent Brown placed on IR Sun Aug 31, 11:55 PM
San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (calf) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Sunday, Aug. 31, after he was waived/injured Saturday, Aug. 30.
|Footballguys view: Brown's career will be summed up by the saying "what might have been." He was a sharp route-runner with great hands coming out of San Diego State a few years ago, but various injuries have robbed him of the little speed he had.|

Redskins | Duke Ihenacho claimed Sun Aug 31, 09:48 PM
The Washington Redskins have claimed SS Duke Ihenacho off waivers from the Denver Broncos.
|Footballguys view: The move makes a lot of sense for Washington. Ihenacho is a hard-hitting safety, but he struggles in coverage. Washington needs help at the safety position because FS Brandon Meriweather has been suspended two games for his sixth violation of the player safety rules.|
