  Texans | Jermaine Kelly making up for lost season    Sun Jun 23, 04:17 PM

Houston Texans CB Jermaine Kelly, a seventh-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, has been impressing coaches and teammates this offseason after losing his rookie campaign to a torn hamstring. 'Jermaine's basically a rookie,' Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said. 'He didn't play last year at all. He was hurt in training camp, so this is really his rookie year. So, just like any rookie, he's still got a long way to go but he works hard. He's got a good attitude, he shows up every day and he tries to get better every day.'

  Bears | Duke Shelley signs rookie deal    Thu Jun 20, 11:22 AM

Chicago Bears sixth-round pick CB Duke Shelley signed an undisclosed four-year deal Thursday, June 20.

Footballguys view: Shelley is a slot corner who can find the football. He had 39 passes defensed in 38 games during his college career at Kansas State. Shelley is known as a smart and coachable prospect who could eventually start as a slot corner for the Bears. They are looking for help at the position since losing CB Bryce Callahan (Broncos) in free agency.

  Texans | Aaron Colvin pleasing Houston coaches    Mon Jun 17, 02:09 PM

Houston Texans CB Aaron Colvin was limited to 10 games, two starts, 29 tackles and one pass defensed due to an ankle injury after signing a four-year, $34 million contract that included $18 million guaranteed last offseason. However, he has impressed the coaching staff so far this offseason.'He's had a good offseason. He's been here every day, he's worked hard. I think he's definitely in that group of players that have improved, which is a big group. But there's definitely been improvement because he's been out there every day. He's been healthy, he's been working. He's a hard worker. He definitely takes a good professional approach to every day,' head coach Bill O'Brien told the Houston Chronicle.

Footballguys view: Colvin is likely to be the slot corner for the Texans in 2019. This news is good news for Colvin as he struggled in 2018 through 10 games in his first season with the Texans. It sounds like he could be in for a bounce-back year.

  Colts | Malik Hooker takes part in offseason program    Mon Jun 17, 01:52 AM

Indianapolis Colts FS Malik Hooker took part in the offseason program for the first time in three seasons, and he caught the eye of head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Hooker was recovering from injuries the last few offseasons. He's effective when healthy and did play 14 games in 2018 after playing in only seven games as a rookie. Hooker says he feels better than he ever has before, so no wonder he's catching Reich's attention.

  Lions | Darius Slay not committing to training camp    Thu Jun 13, 06:35 PM

Detroit Lions CB Darius Slay hasn't committed to reporting to next month's training camp without a new contract. 'Will I be there?' Slay said in an episode of The Pride Podcast released Thursday, June 13. 'We'll see. Time will tell.' Slay is set to carry a cap hit of $12.55 million in 2019 on the second-to-last year of a four-year, $48-million deal signed in 2016.

Footballguys view: There's no reason for the Lions to delay an extension for Slay if they plan on keeping him for the long haul. The market price will just go up in 2020 and the team has already banked many years of Slay's production at below market value. After the Le'Veon Bell debacle last year, we can't rule out a prolonged holdout, but chances are he'll show up for camp or early in camp.

  Packers | Kevin King update    Wed Jun 12, 02:18 AM

Green Bay Packers CB Kevin King (shoulder) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick out of Washington in the 2017 NFL draft, King has never played a full 16-game season in his career (17 games total in two seasons). The Packers won't push him as he returns from the shoulder injury that limited his 2018 season to just six games. He should start opposite Jaire Alexander when healthy.

Free-agent WR Montay Crockett (Jaguars) and CB Isaiah Langley signed undisclosed contracts with the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, June 11. DBs Makinton Dorleant and Montrel Meander were waived in corresponding moves.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Georgia Southern in 2017, Crockett has already bounced around to a few different teams. He also spent some time with the Atlanta Legends of the now-defunct AAF. Crockett is known for his 4.3 speed but clearly hasn't impressed enough to stay with a team...and he will be a long-shot to make the Raiders 53-man roster.

  Vikings | Mackensie Alexander not yet approached for extension    Sun Jun 9, 10:31 AM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings CB Mackensie Alexander has not been approached yet by the team regarding a possible contract extension, according to a source. He is entering the final season of his current deal.

Footballguys view: The Vikings have a lot of money committed to key defensive pieces, but they may not see a slot corner as a key piece. Alexander will get paid either way and could become a starter elsewhere after being blocked by three first-round picks in Minnesota.

  Falcons | Keanu Neal back on the field    Sat Jun 8, 07:47 PM
