  Falcons | Considered most likely to trade up    Thu Apr 24, 07:36 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are considered the most likely team to trade for the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, according to many NFL executives. The Falcons have shown significant interest in South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney leading up to the draft.

Footballguys view: With the interest in Clowney, they'll have to move up. The likely target is number two, where the Rams are. The Rams could move back several spots and still get an impact player, either for the offensive line or elsewhere.

  Falcons | Will meet with Jadeveon Clowney    Thu Apr 24, 03:47 PM

The Atlanta Falcons will meet with South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney Friday, April 25, to watch him do drills.

Footballguys view: If the Falcons want Clowney, there is a good chance they need to move up. That's something which has been talked about since the beginning of the draft process, so it wouldn't be a shock. Atlanta needs some pass rushing help, and Clowney would definitely be a help there.

  Steelers | Cam Heyward's option picked up    Tue Apr 22, 09:39 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers exercised DE Cam Heyward's fifth-year player option.

Footballguys view: Heyward hasn't lived up to first-round billing, but the Steelers are so thin at defensive end that they can't afford to lose him.

  Texans | GM likes Khalil Mack over Jadeveon Clowney?    Mon Apr 21, 02:44 PM

It is believed Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith likes Buffalo LB Khalil Mack more than he likes South Caroliina DE Jadeveon Clowney, according to a source close to Smith.

Footballguys view: This is probably being floated to cast as wide a net as possible for suitors for the #1 overall pick. Mack very well could go in the top 5, or even top 3, but he is an unlikely #1 overall pick.

  Saints | Exercise Cameron Jordan's option    Mon Apr 21, 02:24 PM

The New Orleans Saints have exercised the fifth-year option in DE Cameron Jordan's contract. Jordan will be scheduled to make $6.969 million in 2015.

Footballguys view: A bargain for one of the key players in the resurgence of the Saints defense under Rob Ryan. If it weren't for JJ Watt, Jordan would be talked about a lot more as a budding star at 3-4 DE.

  Texans | Meeting with Jadeveon Clowney    Mon Apr 21, 02:24 PM

The Houston Texans are meeting with South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: The first option for the Texans at this point is probably a trade down, but if they stay at #1, Clowney should be the favorite to be the first player off of the board.

  Buccaneers | Not expected to pick up Adrian Clayborn's option    Mon Apr 21, 02:15 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not expected to exercise the fifth-year option in DE Adrian Clayborn's contract. The team does not plan on trading Clayborn at any point this offseason.

Footballguys view: Clayborn looked like a star in the making during his rookie year, but a torn ACL derailed his development. He might be better served as a rotational player, or even someone who kicks inside at times like his former teammate and current Seattle Seahawk, Michael Bennett.

  Dolphins | High on Ed Stinson    Sat Apr 19, 11:58 PM

The Miami Dolphins are reportedly high on Alabama DE Ed Stinson, who is a tweener-type projected as a mid-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Stinson is a strong and powerful player who can control his man at the line of scrimmage. He's not much of a pass-rusher, but he should be able to contribute at the pro level as a run defender.

  Cowboys | Tyrone Crawford expected for OTAs    Sat Apr 19, 11:57 PM

  Falcons | Will meet with Jadeveon Clowney    Fri Apr 18, 11:39 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are scheduled to meet with South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney at some point next week.

Footballguys view: Clowney would be a fantastic addition for the Falcons. He's unlikely to fall to where they're drafting (sixth overall), so if they want him they'll have to move up.

  Rams | Will pick up Robert Quinn's option    Fri Apr 18, 07:22 PM

The St. Louis Rams have not picked up the fifth-year option in DE Robert Quinn's contract at this point but will exercise the option before the May 3 deadline.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Quinn is one of the best pass-rushers in the game today. The Rams will do their best to eventually lock him up with a long-term deal.

It is believed the New York Jets have exercised the fifth-year option in DE Muhammad Wilkerson's contract.

  Texans | Pick up J.J. Watt's option    Thu Apr 17, 08:19 PM

The Houston Texans have officially exercised the fifth-year option in DE J.J. Watt's contract.

Footballguys view: It's smart to lock up the best defensive lineman in the game, even if you want to draft Jadeveon Clowney as well. Watt is a freak and the Texans do not want him destroying offensive lines for anyone other than themselves.

Updating a previous report, the Detroit Lions hosted South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney for a visit Wednesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Clowney with Ndamukong Suh on the Lions would be fun. However, they'd have to move up from 10th overall to secure his services.

  NFL | Michael Sam receiving interest    Wed Apr 16, 12:10 PM

The Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets have shown the most interest in Missouri DE Michael Sam leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Sam should be a late-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He broke out as a senior at Missouri with 11 sacks, largely in part due to his hustle and motor. Sam is not an elite athlete, and he looks to be more of a part-time player at the pro level.

  Jaguars | Gus Bradley gushes over Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack    Tue Apr 15, 05:26 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has been very impressed with South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney and Buffalo LB Khalil Mack. 'Physically, his appearance, you don't see many guys that are built like him, with the size and the speed and the agility that he has,' Bradley said of Clowney. Bradley also isn't worried about the work ethic of Clowney.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars may wait on a quarterback in the first round to select either Clowney or Mack. Both are elite pass-rushers who can make an immediate impact in the NFL. Mack is better in coverage, and Clowney is the more rare athletic prospect.

  Dolphins | Expect big things from Dion Jordan    Tue Apr 15, 01:46 PM

Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey is expecting big things from DE Dion Jordan in his second season this year. "He's a very talented player and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey said. "Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump.'

Footballguys view: The Dolphins recently rejected a trade offer from the Philadelphia Eagles for Jordan. He's a talented pass-rusher with a nice combination of power and speed.

  Lions | Jadeveon Clowney to visit    Mon Apr 14, 02:07 PM

The Detroit Lions are scheduled to meet with South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Clowney going to the Lions would be unfair for opposing quarterbacks. He'd be a fine fit and give them another elite level pass-rusher. The Lions have considered moving up for WR Sammy Watkins, and they'd have to do the same for Clowney. He's unlikely to be available at 10th overall.

  NFL | Jadeveon Clowney done working out    Mon Apr 14, 10:15 AM

South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney is shutting down his pre-draft workouts to avoid risk of injury.

Footballguys view: Clowney is a rare prospect who should be a top-5 pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Some question his motivation, but nobody questions his upside. Clowney is certainly an option to be selected number one overall by the Houston Texans.

  Rams | Could choose between three    Mon Apr 14, 08:53 AM

The St. Louis Rams could choose between South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney, Clemson WR Sammy Watkins and Auburn OT Greg Robinson with the second pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Rams could use any of those players. Adding Clowney would be ridiculous as their pass-rush is already top notch with Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Watkins would be their best wide receiver if added. Robinson would give them insurance in case left tackle Jake Long gets banged up (again). He's also a better starting right tackle prospect than Joe Barksdale.

  Eagles | Made trade offer for Dion Jordan    Mon Apr 14, 12:00 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly offered a second-round draft pick and LB Brandon Graham to the Miami Dolphins for LB Dion Jordan, but were rebuffed, a league source said.

Footballguys view: Graham is not a fit for the team's 3-4 defense. If they can't trade him, the team may just release Graham. He's in the final year of his contract, and Graham has a $3.3 million cap number. There's actually more in dead money left on his deal ($3.4 million) than he'll draw in annual salary this year.

The Miami Dolphins reportedly rejected a trade offer from the Philadelphia Eagles for LB Dion Jordan, according to a league source. The Eagles offered a second-round draft pick and LB Brandon Graham.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins could hold out for the Eagles first-round pick. We don't think they would surrender that even though Jordan is highly thought of by Chip Kelly. Jordan played for Kelly during his time in college at Oregon.

  Eagles | Tried to land Dion Jordan    Thu Apr 10, 04:02 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly made a play to trade for Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan roughly two months ago, according to a respected league source. The Eagles are believed to have offered a second-round pick and LB Brandon Graham for Jordan. The Eagles would have picked up the remainder of Jordan's four-year, $20.572 million deal.

Footballguys view: We knew the Eagles weren't quite done with their moves (although they might be now) and we knew the Dolphins were rumored to be looking to dump Jordan. It's enormously premature for the Dolphins to do so, and even more insane given that they moved up for him but the Dolphins never seemed to know what to do with him. The Eagles' offer was generous so perhaps Miami was less eager than reported.

  Rams | Kony Ealy visits    Fri Apr 4, 08:30 PM

The St. Louis Rams met with Missouri DE Kony Ealy Friday, April 4.

Footballguys view: Ealy is an option for the Rams in the first round, specifically with their 13th overall pick. They also have the 2nd overall pick, but Ealy should still be on the board after 10. Ealy has drawn comparisons to DE Robert Quinn (Rams) because of his initial quickness off the edge as a pass-rusher. He can play defensive end in a 4-3, and most believe he could stand up and play outside linebacker in a 3-4 too.

New York Giants DE Robert Ayers could push for a starting defensive end job of DE Damontre Moore is not able to handle the job. Ayers is expected to be part of a rotation if he does not start.

Footballguys view: Someone needs to replace Justin Tuck both as a defensive leader and more literally at defensive end. Ayers is coming off a career high 5.5 sacks, but will need to up that total to help the Giants get over the loss of Tuck.
