  Cardinals | Darnell Dockett to IR    Thu Aug 21, 05:03 PM

Arizona Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Confirming some bad news though the good news is he only tore his ACL as opposed to both the ACL and MCL as was reported at one point. Still this is a tough blow to the Cardinals defense.

  Buccaneers | R.J. Mattes signed    Thu Aug 21, 11:45 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed free-agent OG R.J. Mattes (Patriots). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also released DE James Ruffin.

Footballguys view: The Bucs have issues at guard since Carl Nicks retired, though Mattes is likely a depth addition more than anything else. We want to keep an eye on the continuing improvement (or lack thereof) of the line so we know what to expect from critical fantasy pieces like Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin. Both are still high-value picks (both borderling first rounders at their position) but we've already got some concerns because of the quarterback and don't like the idea that the offensive line will add to those.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul not worried about preseason performance    Wed Aug 20, 06:02 PM

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul said he is not concerned with not having a sack in three preseason games. 'It's not important at all,' Pierre-Paul said. 'We only get 25 snaps, that's not a realistic number for me to play. ... You don't get a feel of what the offensive tackle's doing or the inside rusher. I'm not worried about sacks in the preseason. Wait a couple weeks and we'll see.'

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul has regained form after a mostly lost 2013 following back surgery. He could be among the DE1 ranks again in IDP leagues, but the Giants don't have the look of a team that is going to give him many game scripts favorable for pass rushers.

  Browns | Desmond Bryant undergoes surgery    Wed Aug 20, 02:51 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Desmond Bryant (wrist) recently underwent wrist surgery. Head coach Mike Pettine said he is not sure if Bryant will be available to play Week 1.

Footballguys view: Bryant is a beast as a defensive end in the 3 man front of Cleveland, so this could help LeVeon Bell, Ben Roethlisberger and the whole Steelers offense in Week 1.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and free-agent DE Brett Keisel (Steelers) have agreed to an undisclosed deal, according to a source.

  Redskins | Stephen Bowen contract details    Tue Aug 19, 05:05 AM

Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen agreed to cut his base salary by $2.8 million this season under the terms of his new deal, but Bowen can make $2.05 million of that back through bonuses and incentives. Only a small chunk of that would count against the cap, so Bowen's restructure saves the team $2.3 million.

  Cardinals | Darnell Dockett out for the year    Mon Aug 18, 09:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett (knee) will need season-ending surgery after an MRI on his right knee Monday, Aug. 18, revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Ouch. This is a huge blow to the Cardinals defense in more ways than one. Dockett is an important part of the run defense, but he's also an emotional leader who will be missed. The Cardinals have lost Dockett, Daryl Washington and Karlos Dansby from last year's defense. They could struggle on the defensive side of the ball in 2014.

  Broncos | Quanterus Smith impressing coaches and players    Sun Aug 17, 02:21 AM

Denver Broncos DE Quanterus Smith, who missed all of last season due to injury, has impressed coaches with his ability to come off the edge of the line and hamper offenses. It has impressed veterans like DE DeMarcus Ware, who said 'When you think about the guy who has all the talent and is really a great player, that's what I think of with Quanterus.'

Footballguys view: Smith is a terrific stash in deep IDP dynasty or sack-heavy IDP dynasty leagues. He abused San Diego Chargers starting RT and high first-round pick DJ Fluker famously in college.

  Buccaneers | Five leave preseason game    Sat Aug 16, 11:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Brandon Magee (ankle), DE William Gholston (shoulder), CB Rashaan Melvin (ankle), RB Mike James (shoulder) and SS Major Wright (back) left the team's preseason game with injuries Saturday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Charles Sims is out for 12-14 weeks, so the Bucs embarrassment of riches at backup running back could turn into embarrassingly little depth in a very short time. Bobby Rainey is becoming a more important player by the day, although this could end up being minor for James when the dust settles.
