  Bills | Marcell Dareus entering treatment    Tue Jul 22, 10:53 AM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus has agreed to enter an NFL substance abuse program as he works to have felony drug charges dismissed, according to Rod Giddens, Dareus' attorney. Dareus was given permission to enter the program at a hearing in Calhoun County Court in Alabama Monday, July 21. Charges levied on May 5 of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia will be dismissed and perhaps expunged should he complete the required activities. The NFL could still discipline Dareus, however.

New England Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), WR Aaron Dobson (foot), WR Jeremy Gallon (undisclosed), DT Tommy Kelly (knee) and WR Matthew Slater (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the team's physically unable to perform list.

Footballguys view: Dobson is the player fantasy owners need to watch here. He had an inconsistent rookie season last year, but the team needs him to start playing up to his potential this year. Dobson could start on the outside opposite Danny Amendola this season.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus excused, will return    Mon Jul 21, 04:52 PM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus left practice Monday, July 21, for personal reasons, according to head coach Doug Marrone. He is expected back for the evening practice.

Footballguys view: Dareus is under contract for the next two years, but his act has been wearing a bit thin. Arrested twice this offseason, Dareus failed to pass the team's conditioning test at the start of training camp. He's incredibly talented, but Dareus has to stay on track if he's going to play up to his potential in Buffalo.

  NFL | Phillip Hunt to work out soon    Mon Jul 21, 03:05 PM

Former Philadelphia Eagles DE Phillip Hunt (knee) has recovered from anterior cruciate ligament surgery and should begin workouts with teams in the near future.

Footballguys view: Teams will want to see if Hunt is healthy before signing him. If healthy, Hunt could work as a part-time pass-rusher. He might have to wait until after Week 1 to find a new team. After Week 1, veterans salaries are not guaranteed for the rest of the year.

  Bengals | LaKendrick Ross signed    Mon Jul 21, 01:56 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed undrafted free-agent DT LaKendrick Ross (Virginia-Lynchburg), according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but all contracts signed by undrafted free agents are three-year deals, according to NFL rules.

  Cardinals | Two candidates at PUP list    Mon Jul 21, 01:41 PM

Arizona Cardinals DT Alameda Ta'amu (knee) and FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) are candidates to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Ta'amu has struggled with injuries during his pro career. If healthy, he can eat up space in the middle of the defensive line. Mathieu is one of the best young free safeties in the game today. The team will be quite cautious with him as he comes back from this knee injury.

  Bills | Two signed, two cut    Mon Jul 21, 12:34 PM

The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent WR Naaman Roosevelt (Lions) and DT Landon Cohen (Bears) to undisclosed deals. The team released WR Ramses Barden and LB Nathan Williams.

Footballguys view: Barden's days in the NFL are likely over. He was an intriguing third-round pick by the Giants in 2009, but his size and wingspan never helped him at the pro level. Barden lacks the explosiveness and "my ball" mentality to stick around in the NFL.

  Broncos | Four could go on PUP    Mon Jul 21, 11:43 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) and TE Joel Dreessen (knee) could begin the preseason on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be shocked to see all four of these players go on PUP to begin training camp. The Broncos want Miller and Harris to be ready for the start of regular season. Both are coming back from late-season knee injuries suffered in 2013. Miller seems to be ahead in the recovery process, but expect the team to take it easy on him when he does come back.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus testing team's patience    Mon Jul 21, 10:39 AM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus has drawn the ire of Bills general manager Doug Whaley after reporting to camp out of shape. 'It's cause for concern,' Whaley said. 'You always are disappointed when one of your guys isn't ready. But we think he's not far off. So hopefully sooner than later.'

Footballguys view: The Bills went ahead and picked up his fifth-year option, and now they have him under contract for the next two seasons. Dareus is not going to get a long-term extension if he continues to behave like this.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus out of shape    Sun Jul 20, 06:14 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus failed his conditioning test, which is why he was put on the inactive list.

Footballguys view: Dareus has fantastic ability on the field, but his act might be wearing a bit thin in Buffalo. He's been arrested twice this offseason and he's known as a player with questionable dedication during the season. Dareus is under contract for the next two years, but he needs to turn things around off the field if he wants a long-term extension.

  NFL | Adam Carriker cleared    Fri Jul 18, 08:03 PM

Free-agent DT Adam Carriker (quadriceps) has recovered from his quadriceps injury and has been cleared to practice.

Footballguys view: It's been a long time since Carriker has played in the NFL. He's missed 30 consecutive games, but could find some team interested in a veteran pass-rusher for the right price. Carriker might have to wait until after Week 1 of the regular season. At that point, veteran salaries are not guaranteed for the year.

  Ravens | Terrency Cody placed on PUP list    Fri Jul 18, 03:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Terrence Cody (hip) was placed on the team's physically unable to perform list. Cody underwent hip surgery this offseason.

Footballguys view: The camp PUP list is easy to come back from. Players can be activated from the list at any time in camp. Cody has been a disappointment as a pro, and he's in a make-or-break season in 2014.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware feels better    Fri Jul 18, 10:51 AM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware said he feels better entering the season than he has in two years. 'I feel better than I did the last two years going into the season,' Ware said. 'Stronger, faster. I feel flexible.'

Footballguys view: Ware still showed he had plenty left in the tank during Denver's OTAs and minicamp. He struggled through an elbow injury last year with the Cowboys and finished the year with only six sacks. With a fresh start in Denver, we could see Ware get back over double-digit sacks in 2014.

  Packers | Julius Peppers may move around    Thu Jul 17, 03:23 PM

Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said LB Julius Peppers may move around on the defense and play a "hybrid" type role for the team. 'I can tell you that things we've asked him to do, he's done a nice job of,' defensive coordinator Dom Capers said of Peppers. 'He'll be one of those, quote, hybrid-type guys. He'll rush, he'll drop, he'll do a lot of different things.

Footballguys view: At 34-years old, Peppers is not the same player he used to be. His 7 sacks in 2013 were the least he's had since 2007. We'll see if he can stand out this year as a pass-rusher opposite Clay Matthews.

  Panthers | Greg Hardy punishment could wait    Thu Jul 17, 12:15 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy could avoid immediate punishment from the NFL after being found guilty on charges of communicating threats and assaulting a female because he filed for a second trial in Superior Court in front of a jury. The NFL could choose to suspend Hardy for as many as four games based on recent disciplinary actions. League spokesman Brian McCarthy said the NFL would review Hardy's legal situation at the 'appropriate time.'

Footballguys view: We expect the NFL to eventually take a strong stance here. The league usually doesn't punish first-time offenders until their legal cases have run their course. However, the Panthers could take action against Hardy before the NFL's decision.

  Panthers | Could cut Greg Hardy    Thu Jul 17, 09:10 AM

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy could be cut by the team because, according to former DE Mike Rucker, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is sensitive to the topic of domestic violence.

Footballguys view: Hardy is playing on a one-year franchise tag in 2014. The guilty verdict could at least keep the team from looking to re-sign him to a long-term deal. There's a strong chance the league suspends Hardy when the legal process has been exhausted.

  Steelers | Cam Thomas could start    Wed Jul 16, 01:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers DE Cam Thomas could start at defensive end until DE Stephon Tuitt is ready to take over the starting job. Thomas appears to be better suited to be a swing player at defensive end and defensive tackle.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a seasoned veteran the Steelers added in free agency from the Chargers earlier this year. Tuitt was a nice value pick by the Steelers in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft. He is an athletic big man, measuring in at 6'5" 310 pounds. Tuitt is fast but needs to work on his quickness. He can take up space as a run-stuffer, and Tuitt is developing his ability to get interior push on the quarterback.

  Steelers | Brian Arnfelt could be on bubble    Wed Jul 16, 01:05 PM

  Buccaneers | Competition for Adrian Clayborn    Tue Jul 15, 11:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Adrian Clayborn will need a solid showing in camp to hold on to his starting job, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com. DE William Gholston, DE Da'Quan Bowers and DE Steven Means are other candidates for the job.

Footballguys view: Gholston and Bowers could make things interesting, but Clayborn has more upside even though he's been a disappointment during his career. He's not a great fit for Lovie Smith's defense, but the Bucs really don't have much of a choice.

  Panthers | Greg Hardy found guilty    Tue Jul 15, 11:02 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy was found guilty Tuesday, July 15, of assaulting of assaulting a female and communicating threats. Mecklenburg County Judge Rebecca Thorn-Tin sentenced Hardy to 18 months' probation. A 60-day jail sentence was suspended. Hardy's attorney Chris Fialko said he'll appeal and Hardy has asked for a jury trial in superior court.

Footballguys view: The appeal will likely delay any suspension coming from the NFL. Cases like this can be pushed back quite some time, so the league is going to have to wait before they suspend Hardy.

  Panthers | Greg Hardy pleads not guilty     Tue Jul 15, 02:28 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy appeared in court Tuesday, July 15, on charges of communicating threats and assaulting an ex-girlfriend.

Footballguys view: Hardy's ex-girlfriend testified in court Tuesday, July 15, that Hardy strangled her and threatened to kill her. Some believe the NFL has a problem with domestic violence and the league will take appropriate action (suspension, fines) when the legal process has exhausted for Hardy.

  Bears | Ego Ferguson expected to learn both tackle positions    Tue Jul 15, 12:33 PM

Chicago Bears DT Ego Ferguson is expected to learn both defensive tackle positions. There is a chance Ferguson could get as many repetitions as the first team during training-camp and the preseason games.

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a run-stuffer who can stand his ground against double teams. He understands leverage and does a good job hand fighting in the trenches. Ferguson lacks the burst to create much interior pressure, but he can occupy space to allow linebackers behind him to make plays.

  Panthers | Long-term deal unlikely for Greg Hardy    Mon Jul 14, 06:14 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy is unlikely to reach a long-term deal with the team before the deadline Tuesday, July 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This is what happens when you get in trouble with the law with a contract on the line. Hardy had character concerns when he came out of college, and that's why he fell to the sixth round. He's set to go to trial Tuesday for two misdemeanor assault charges after he allegedly threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend earlier this offseason.

  Ravens | Terrence Cody encouraged by recovery    Mon Jul 14, 02:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Terrence Cody (hip) is excited to be able to do more on the field now that his nagging hip injury is behind him. Cody thinks of it as a fresh start and believes he'll able to show what he's capable of.

Footballguys view: "Mount Cody" has failed to live up to the hype surrounding him when he came out of Alabama in 2010. The Ravens selected him in the second round of the draft that year, and he's only registered 45 tackles (and zero sacks) in four seasons. Cody has struggled with weight issues and staying healthy during his pro career. We'll see if 2014 can be different for him.
