  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.

  Jets | Believed to have exercised Muhammad Wilkerson's option    Thu Apr 17, 08:23 PM

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

Footballguys view: Wilkerson has played very well since coming into the league and the Jets are wise to do this (if they did). He will look good in green for a long time to come.

  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.

  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy won't hold out    Tue Apr 15, 05:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy said he will be in attendance when training camp starts this summer no matter where the status of his contract talks are.

Footballguys view: McCoy is entering the final year of his contract in 2014. He's currently scheduled to make over $10 million this season. New Bucs head coach Lovie Smith has called re-signing McCoy a priority.

  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.

  Dolphins | Rejected deal for Dion Jordan    Sun Apr 13, 11:59 PM

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.

  Lions | More on Ndamukong Suh    Thu Apr 10, 02:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions teammates and coaches were not surprised that DT Ndamukong Suh was not taking part in voluntary workouts. 'It certainly didn't blindside me,' head coach Jim Caldwell said. 'We certainly knew. He and I have probably had more discussions than any player that we've had on the team. He's been in-and-out. I think he was here on a couple days when I came on a visit, so we kind of knew exactly what was going on.

Footballguys view: This is the kind of non-story story that we see as the draft analysis is winding down and news is slow. We'd like to see Suh there, as it could be a sign that he is taking more of a leadership role on. But not being there isn't necessarily a sign of the apocalypse.

The Detroit Lions would like to sign DT Nick Fairley to a long-term contract extension if he starts to show consistency in his play and has a good work ethic.

Footballguys view: Fairley has disappointed as a pro since being a first-round pick in 2011. He needs to stay healthy and stay in shape in order to play up to his potential. Fairley is currently set to hit free agency after this season. If he has a monster season it could result in a monster payday for him next offseason.
