  Dolphins | Miami to get trio back on field for OTAs    Sat May 19, 10:05 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee), LB Raekwon McMillan (knee) and CB Tony Lippett (Achilles') are all expected to be on the field in some capacity next week, although it is still uncertain how much work all three will actually do, according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

Footballguys view: Tannehill is the one fantasy owners (and the Dolphins) will be monitoring closely during camp. He missed all of last year with this knee injury, prompting the Dolphins to go out and sign Jay Cutler. Now, Tannehill is back for one more (and final?) season as the starter. With Brock Osweiler, Bryce Petty and David Fales behind him the Dolphins don't have many choices other than to see if Tannehill can not only regain his form but show that he's got more potential than he's shown as a pro.

  Cardinals | Jamar Taylor likely will start    Sat May 19, 01:23 PM

Arizona Cardinals CB Jamar Taylor likely will be the starting cornerback opposite CB Patrick Peterson this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick for the Dolphins in 2013, Taylor spent the last two seasons with the Browns. He's not a tremendous player but he should be an upgrade for the Cardinals over Brandon Williams. The Cardinals acquired Taylor from the Browns in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2020.

  Chargers | Rayshawn Jenkins working at FS    Sat May 19, 12:34 PM

Los Angeles Chargers S Rayshawn Jenkins has been lining up at free safety during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Miami in 2017, Jenkins is big, fast and physical. He can play in the box, but he's got the ball instincts to work as a two-deep safety as well.

  Patriots | Jason McCourty may see time at safety    Sat May 19, 12:33 PM

New England Patriots CB Jason McCourty may see some time at safety this upcoming season depending on the defensive package.

Footballguys view: McCourty is going to help the depth in the Patriots secondary at multiple positions. They needed CB help to replace Malcolm Butler, but McCourty can play corner or safety. One of the most interchangeable teams in the NFL, it's no surprise they would move McCourty around the back half of the defense.

  Cardinals | Jamar Taylor agrees to restructured deal    Fri May 18, 03:08 PM

Arizona Cardinals CB Jamar Taylor will make $3.5 million instead of $4.25 million in 2018 after agreeing to have $750,000 pushed back into 2019 - the final season of the three-year, $15 million extension he signed with the Cleveland Browns near the end of the 2016 season.

  Seahawks | Seattle signs two draft picks    Thu May 17, 04:42 PM

Seattle Seahawks fifth-round draft choices LB Shaquem Griffin and S Tre Flowers signed four-year deals with the Seahawks Thursday, May 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Griffin had 18.5 sacks over the last two years playing OLB at Central Florida. He flies all over the field, can cover in space and play special teams if need be. Amniotic Band Syndrome caused his left hand to get amputated at the age of four, but that hasn't slowed Griffin down whatsoever.

  49ers | Richard Sherman to be ready for camp    Thu May 17, 02:06 PM

San Francisco 49ers CB Richard Sherman (Achilles') jogged on to the field Wednesday, May 16, for the first time since rupturing his Achilles' tendon last season.

Footballguys view: Great news for the 49ers here...and something we all were expecting. Sherman said he'll be ready for training camp but will approach the offseason with caution.

  Packers | Josh Jackson signs    Thu May 17, 11:46 AM

Green Bay Packers CB Josh Jackson signed his rookie four-year deal Thursday, May 17. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jackson has first-round tools, but he fell to the second round of the 2018 NFL draft. He's big, strong and able to play with a physical style at the point of attack. Jackson always finds himself around the ball, and he can be a nuisance for any receiver he's tasked with covering.

  Browns | Denzel Ward feeling good    Wed May 16, 09:56 PM

Cleveland Browns CB Denzel Ward (hip) said his injured hip is feeling good and that he expects to participate in organized team activities next week.

Footballguys view: Ward was held out of some practices during rookie minicamp, mainly as a precautionary move.

  Patriots | New England signs Duke Dawson    Wed May 16, 04:44 PM

New England Patriots CB Duke Dawson signed his four-year rookie contract Wednesday, May 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Patriots needed help in their secondary, and that's why they drafted Dawson out of Florida in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft. Dawson measures in at 5'10" 197 pounds, so he's not the largest corner but he plays with the heart of a lion. He is super aggressive when the ball is in the air and does a good job of timing when a pass is coming in. His aggressiveness can be used against him at times (on double moves, etc), but Dawson has a swagger that should help boost the Pats secondary.

  Cardinals | Arizona will host Bashaud Breeland    Wed May 16, 01:18 PM

Free-agent CB Bashaud Breeland (Redskins) will visit the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, May 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A foot injury suffered on vacation earlier this offseason caused Breeland's three-year, $24 million deal with the Panthers to get voided due to a failed physical. Breeland has recovered from his foot injury and is expected to pass all medical tests.

  Lions | Tracy Walker signed by Lions    Tue May 15, 05:43 PM

Detroit Lions S Tracy Walker signed his four-year rookie deal Tuesday, May 15. Financial terms were not disclosed. OL Brett Kendrick was waived in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Louisiana-Lafayette, Walker is a former AAU basketball star who transitioned to the gridiron late in his prep career. Walker played all over the field for the Ragin' Cajuns, and he can line up at corner, nickel corner, boundary safety...plus stood out on special teams. He's not afraid to mix it up as a run defender and could be a valuable player for the Lions going forward.

  49ers | San Francisco claims C.J. Goodwin    Tue May 15, 05:04 PM

The San Francisco 49ers claimed CB C.J. Goodwin off waivers from the New York Giants Tuesday, May 15.

Footballguys view: Goodwin transitioned from wide receiver to cornerback during his time with the Falcons...when Kyle Shanahan was there. He's been with three teams already in 2018 (Cardinals, Giants and now 49ers) but might have a chance at making the 53-man roster in San Francisco.

  Jets | Kenny Vaccaro meets with Jets    Tue May 15, 02:21 PM

Free-agent FS Kenny Vaccaro (Saints) is officially visiting the New York Jets Tuesday, May 15, as expected.

Footballguys view: Vaccaro played with a core muscle injury during 2017 but had surgery to repair the problem in December. He's declared himself to be at full strength for some time now, and we should see some team out there willing to add him to a 'prove it' deal.

  Packers | Jaire Alexander signs    Tue May 15, 11:17 AM

Green Bay Packers first-round pick CB Jaire Alexander signed his rookie four-year deal Tuesday, May 15. Financial terms weren't disclosed, and all first-round picks have options for a fifth year.

Footballguys view: The Packers needed help in their secondary and that's why they selected Alexander with their top pick in this draft. Alexander started only five games last year as a hand and knee injury took him out of the lineup. At 5'10" 196 pounds, Alexander is a good run defender and knows how to get his hands on the ball (22 pass break ups in two years of starting). He should immediately contribute for the Packers in 2018.

  Bengals | Cincy signs three more picks    Sat May 12, 02:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals second-round draft choice S Jessie Bates, fourth-round draft choice RB Mark Walton and fifth-round draft choice CB Darius Phillips signed four-year contracts with the Bengals Saturday, May 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Walton is one of our favorite 'sleeper' RBs in this draft class from a dynasty perspective. There were shades of Clinton Portis to his game when Walton played for the Miami Hurricanes (just like Portis). Walton is not a big back, but at 205 pounds he's got plenty of toughness to run inside and the speed to break it outside when possible. He needs to stay healthy in order to play up to his potential in the pros.

  Chargers | Derwin James to move around    Fri May 11, 11:43 PM

Los Angeles Chargers S Derwin James is an 'alpha dog,' according to head coach Anthony Lynn, and Lynn said the defensive staff will be creative with how James is used.

Footballguys view: James is an 'alpha' and can step on the field and immediately be one of the most intimidating players in the league. He played linebacker (both MIKE and SAM), plus outside corner, plus nickel corner and oh yeah - both safety positions during his time in college with the Seminoles. We can't wait to see him fly around the field and help set the tone for a fierce Chargers defense in 2018.

Houston Texans sixth-round draft choice TE Jordan M. Thomas and seventh-round draft choices LB Peter Kalambayi and CB Jermaine Kelly signed four-year contracts Friday, May 11. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a big-bodied (280 pounds) target who used to be a wide receiver. He's still raw at the position and needs work as a blocker. However, his size alone could make him a decent red zone option for the Texans.

  Steelers | Terrell Edmunds works at different spots    Fri May 11, 07:09 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers S Terrell Edmunds said he lined up at linebacker and safety during practice Friday, May 11.

Footballguys view: The Steelers first-round pick in 2018 moved all over the field during his time in college with the Hokies. Edmunds has played cornerback, nickel corner, free safety and 'rover' over the last three years. It's not a surprise the Steelers are moving him around. His versatility has to be an attractive asset given the team selected him on the first day of the draft even though most felt he would be a mid-round pick.

  Bengals | Four Bengals picks sign deals    Fri May 11, 05:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals fifth-round draft choices CB Davontae Harris and DT Andrew Brown and seventh-round draft choices QB Logan Woodside and OG Rod Taylor signed four-year contracts Friday, May 11. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Woodside could be an interesting developmental quarterback. He was incredibly accurate in college, and Woodside put up some big numbers leading the Toledo offense finishing his college career as the all-time leader for the Rockets in passing yards (10,514) and passing touchdowns (93). He doesn't have the strongest arm and is undersized by NFL standards.
