Proehl failed to make the 53-man roster for the Bills and was eventually picked up by the Rams on their practice squad. We'll monitor him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Falcons | Atlanta cuts Robert Alford    Tue Feb 5, 06:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons CB Robert Alford is being released Tuesday, Feb. 5, according to a source. He was set to earn $8.5 million in 2019.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick for the Falcons in the 2013 NFL draft, Alford's play isn't what it used to be. The move clears up $7.9 million in cap space for the Falcons. Even though 2018 was the first season Alford didn't have an interceptoin (and he's not getting any younger), the veteran corner should be able to find work as a starter for another team in 2019.

  Dolphins | Xavien Howard not fazed by chatter    Wed Jan 30, 02:37 PM

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard said he's not worried about any trade rumors swirling around as he heads into the final year of his rookie contract. 'It is what it is,' Howard said. 'It's a business. Be prepared for it. Wherever I go, it don't matter; I'm still going to be busting my butt.' Howard was tied for the league-lead in interceptions in 2018 with seven. If Howard is signed to a long-term extension, he could see at least $14 million per year.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins have the look of a team that will be tanking in 2019 to get one of the top quarterbacks in 2020. Trading Howard before he breaks the bank on a new deal to recoup more picks for rebuilding could fit that modus operandi.

  NFL | Senior Bowl participants impressing so far    Thu Jan 24, 03:44 PM

Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat, Missiouri QB Drew Lock, Ohio State WR Terry McLaurin, Texas A&M DT Daylon Mack, Kentucky CB Lonnie Johnson, Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin, South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel, Wyoming DE Carl Granderson, New Mexico State LB Terrill Hanks and Georgia State WR Penny Hart have all stood out during Senior Bowl practices so far, in the opinion of NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah and Chase Goodbread.

Footballguys view: That's a helluva list, and it's a good one compiled by two well respected draft analysts. We've got our guys Cecil Lammey, Matt Waldman and Dr. Jene Bramel in Mobile, AL for the week of Senior Bowl practices. Lock has a big arm and might be the best quarterback at the event. Samuel makes catching passes look effortless and he can make plays in the red zone. Hart is the small-school standout who is having a great week of practice, showing off quickness and good concentration.

  Dolphins | Miami could wait on Xavien Howard extension    Wed Jan 23, 05:48 PM

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard is going into the final year of his rookie contract and awaits a contract extension. The Dolphins could wait for him to play out the year before potentially extending his contract, however, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

Footballguys view: The main reason being Howard has an extensive injury history and Miami may want to make sure he can stay healthy in 2019 before offering him big money. Howard was tied for the league lead in interceptions in 2018 (7) but has missed 13 games over his three-year career. He will cost $1.95 million against the salary cap this season.
