Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry (illness) worked with the second-team defense during practice Saturday, Aug. 1.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh acquires Brandon Boykin    Sat Aug 1, 08:09 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers acquired CB Brandon Boykin from the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 1, in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Eagles could receive a fourth-round pick depending on Boykin's playing time, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Pro Football Focus rated Boykin as the Eagles' best cornerback in 2014, and he finished at no. 21 overall. He's one of the best young slot corners in the league, and he should immediately boost a poor Steelers secondary that ranked 27th against the pass in 2014.

Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (undisclosed) left practice Thursday, July 30, for an undisclosed reason. He returned for one snap and left again.

  Jets | Dee Milliner cleared     Wed Jul 29, 06:11 PM

New York Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') has been cleared to practice in training camp, but could be limited.

Footballguys view: Could be? More like "should be" limited. Achilles' injuries aren't quite as devastating as they used to be, but the Jets will still be cautious with Milliner during his recovery. He's likely to be the fourth corner on the roster behind Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine.

  49ers | Two players cleared to practice    Tue Jul 28, 06:33 PM

San Francisco 49ers DT Darnell Dockett (knee) and SS Jimmie Ward (foot) have been cleared to practice.

Footballguys view: Dockett missed all of last season for the Cardinals as he tore his ACL last August. The 49ers should ease the aging pass-rusher back into action. He should work as a part-time player when healthy. Ward flashed as a rookie last year before going down in the second half of 2014. He'll likely work as a nickel corner this year, but he's still got the upside to be a quality starter on the outside someday.

Kansas City Chiefs CB Sean Smith was suspended three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Footballguys view: Smith pled guilty to DUI last month, and now he'll be on probation for two years. With Smith out of the lineup for three games, we could see rookie first-round pick Marcus Peters thrown into action as a first-team corner.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas iffy for opener    Thu Jul 23, 12:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) isn't expected to be cleared for training camp, and his status is questionable for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Thomas is one of the best in the game when healthy, so expect the Seahawks to proceed with caution as he returns from this injury. He underwent surgery for a torn labrum back in February, and reports indicate there haven't been any setbacks. It's just going to take some time for him to be ready to get back on the field.

Buffalo Bills FS Aaron Williams (hip) should be ready for the start of training camp after undergoing hip surgery earlier this offseason, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

  Vikings | Trae Waynes in the mix    Tue Jul 7, 12:45 PM

Minnesota Vikings rookie CB Trae Waynes will be in the mix for a cornerback spot with CBs Terence Newman and Captain Munnerlyn. CB Joshua Robinson (pectoral) suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle at the end of minicamp, and Waynes could move up the depth chart. Head coach Mike Zimmer was pleased with Waynes' growth this offseason.

Footballguys view: Waynes has great straight-line speed, but doesn't have the same agility or mirror coverage ability of his first-round peers. It will certainly help him to have a good defensive line rotation and Xavier Rhodes on the other side of the field, not to mention Harrison Smith patrolling deep. If Waynes does start, he'll be an excellent early-year play in IDP leagues under the rookie corner rule.

  Vikings | Joshua Robinson has muscle tear    Sat Jul 4, 03:32 PM

Minnesota Vikings CB Joshua Robinson (pectoral) suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle during minicamp, according to a source. The timetable for Robinson's recovery was undisclosed.

Footballguys view: This injury should keep Robinson out of training camp. He could end up on the PUP list to start the regular season if the injury is slow to heal. This injury to Robinson will only open the door even more for rookie CB Trae Waynes to get more playing time and opportunity as the team's third corner.

  Cowboys | Morris Claiborne ready for camp?    Sat Jun 27, 07:01 PM

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne may be ready for the start of training camp. 'I think Claiborne has a real good chance to surprise,' owner Jerry Jones said recently, via the team's official website. Claiborne lost 30-40 pounds this offseason, after having surgery done on both of his knees.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys declined his fifth-year option, but Claiborne is due $2.6 million (fully guaranteed) in the final year of his rookie deal. They'll bring him back cautiously as he returns from this serious injury. Claiborne has been a huge disappointment as a pro, and this is likely his last season with the Cowboys.

  NFL | Antoine Cason out for season    Thu Jun 25, 02:58 AM

Free-agent CB Antoine Cason (foot) will miss the 2015 season due to surgery he underwent on Tuesday, June 23. Cason (Ravens) did not specify what type of surgery he had, but an Instagram post showed his right foot was heavily bandaged.

San Diego Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (undisclosed) sat out of practices this month with a minor injury, but he said he'd be ready for training camp. Flowers signed a four-year deal with $20.5 million guaranteed this offseason.

Footballguys view: Flowers was a fine addition for the Chargers in 2014, and it's good they were able to keep him around for this season. They'll get him healthy and pair him opposite 2014 first-round pick Jason Verrett to make a dangerous starting cornerback duo.

  Ravens | BAL interested in Tarell Brown    Sun Jun 21, 04:50 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have expressed interest in free-agent CB Tarell Brown (Raiders), although no deal appears imminent, according to multiple league sources.

Footballguys view: Earlier this year, Brown met with the New England Patriots. The Ravens have Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb both starting at corner, but injuries at the position could quickly mount like they did last season. Brown is still on the open market largely because of durability concerns. He started 14 games last year for the Raiders while playing with a broken foot.

  Giants | Landon Collins signs    Fri Jun 19, 11:00 AM

New York Giants SS Landon Collins signed his rookie four-year deal Friday, June 19.

Footballguys view: Collins is decisive as a run-defender, and he arrives at the ball with natural violence. He's an intimidating presence who can star playing close to the line of scrimmage. Collins is a smart defender who puts himself in the right position as a coverage player, but he needs to make better plays on the ball.

  Saints | Two Saints sitting out    Thu Jun 18, 12:10 PM

New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) and SS Kenny Vaccaro are sitting out of practice Thursday, June 18.

Footballguys view: At the end of minicamp, this is no real worry. Byrd struggled in 2014 before tearing his lateral meniscus, but he should be ready to go for camp. The Saints need him to play better though, considering how much they paid to acquire him last offseason.
