  Cardinals | Corey Peters may start at nose tackle    Thu Jun 23, 05:48 PM

Arizona Cardinals DT Corey Peters (Achilles') is slated to start at nose tackle this season if he is healthy, in the opinion of Darren Urban of Head coach Bruce Arians, though, did say Peters would be ready by training camp. DT Rodney Gunter will compete for the spot as well.

  Giants | Owa Odighizuwa shines in spring    Thu Jun 23, 01:25 AM

New York Giants DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa worked on the interior of the defensive line during spring practices, working alongside DT Johnathan Hankins in nickel pass-rushing defenses. His role might be similar to how the team used DE-LB Mathias Kiwanuka.

Footballguys view: Odighizuwa is more of a linear power rusher than a bendy speed rusher, so this makes sense. Jason Pierre-Paul should be back to full speed and much more accustomed to using his fireworks-marred hand, and Olivier Vernon will give him the best running mate at defensive end that he has had in a while. The Giants pass rush is getting closer to the glory days of their Super Bowl seasons.

  Bills | Buffalo rotates linemen at nose tackle    Wed Jun 15, 02:17 AM

Buffalo Bills DLs Corbin Bryant, Marcell Dareus, Jerel Worthy and Justin Zimmer all saw time at nose tackle in the first day of mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 14. The team has continued to cross-train their defensive linemen, using guys at nose tackle as well as at defensive end for some downs.

Footballguys view: Rob Ryan runs a defense with multiple fronts, so this isn't a shock. On the other hand, Rob Ryan has run multiple defenses into the ground, so you will excuse us if we aren't quite giddy.

  Eagles | Fletcher Cox agrees to new deal    Mon Jun 13, 06:30 PM

Philadelphia Eagles DT Fletcher Cox agreed to a six-year contract extension Monday, June 13, worth $103 million, according to sources. The deal includes $63 million in guaranteed money, which is the highest guarantee for a non-quarterback in NFL history.

Footballguys view: Cox was entering the last year of his rookie contract, and the Eagles pay him a premium to insure that he stays with the team for the foreseeable future. This guaranteed money is going to make it difficult for the Broncos to sign franchise-tagged Von Miller to a new contract as they have originally offered only $39.8 million in full guarantees. Cox can create interior pressure on opposing QBs and is a key member of the Eagles defense.

  Bills | Four roster moves made    Mon Jun 13, 03:26 PM

Free-agents DE Leger Douzable (Jets) and OT Chris Martin (49ers) signed with the Buffalo Bills Monday, June 13. DE Claudell Louis and OT Keith Lumpkin were released.

Footballguys view: Douzable is a part-time player who can be a run-stuffer for the Bills. His spot on the 53-man roster is not guaranteed, but he's played under Rex Ryan before and knows what is expected of him.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles to arrive next week    Fri Jun 3, 10:14 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles and DT Fletcher Cox are expected to be present at next week's mandatory camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Mandatory minicamp is when all the veterans who have been working out on their own show up. The Eagles RB situation is an interesting one to monitor for fantasy owners. Sproles will play in his usual role, but if Ryan Mathews doesn't stay healthy (a real possibility) then perhaps rookie Wendell Smallwood gets a larger role.

  Raiders | Mario Edwards participates in OTAs    Tue May 24, 07:35 PM

Oakland Raiders LB Mario Edwards Jr. (neck) is participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24, after being medically cleared for football activities earlier this month.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Raiders here. Edwards found out he was dealing with a genetic condition in his neck and a late-season injury last year put his future in the NFL in doubt. Neck injuries are nothing to take lightly, but now Edwards looks like he's ready to rock. The Raiders have the makings of a team who could surprise in 2016.

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus (foot) is not present for the start of organized team activities Tuesday, May 24, but head coach Rex Ryan is not concerned.

Footballguys view: We learned earlier this year that Dareus had undergone surgery on his broken foot, but he was supposed to be cleared in time for OTAs. Ryan said Dareus has taken part in roughly '90%' of offseason activities and has been a 'fixture.'

  Rams | Dominique Easley agrees to deal    Tue May 17, 07:39 PM

Free-agent DT Dominique Easley (Patriots) agreed to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams Tuesday, May 17, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Rams add another first-round pick to the mix on their defensive line. Easley has had knee problems in his pro career, but he can be effective inside if healthy. We should see him work into the rotation behind Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.

  Bears | Jordan Howard will have role in 2016    Fri May 13, 08:01 PM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will be used as a change-of-pace back in 2016 since he has a different style of running than RB Kendall Langford, according to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. 'He's a change-of-pace back. Their skill sets are different. We'll use the skill set the way it needs to be. We won't ask them to both do the same thing, but we'll find out what Howard does well and we'll play to that,' Loggains said.

Footballguys view: Howard might be the most natural runner in this draft class...yes, even above Ezekiel Elliott (Cowboys). While Elliot is an instant stud and worthy of a late first-round pick in your fantasy draft, Howard may be a pick in the late rounds that can pay off like a RB2. Watch to see if he can beat out Jeremy Langford to be the top back for the Bears.

  Ravens | Bronson Kaufusi might start at DE    Tue May 10, 01:15 AM

Baltimore Ravens DE Bronson Kaufusi has a chance to start at defensive end. The third-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft will battle DEs Lawrence Guy and Brent Urban after DE Chris Canty was cut.

Footballguys view: Kaufusi is tall (6'6") has a large wingspan and is incredibly athletic. He is one of our favorite pass-rushing DEs in this draft class. It's no surprise the Ravens would scoop him up with a value pick.

Updating a previous report, free-agent DT Dominique Easley (Patriots) is working out for the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, May 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Easley can be a productive player if healthy. There were some rumblings about him being an issue in the locker room with the Patriots, but the Bengals are a team who normally overlooks personality issues. The Falcons also have interest in the talented D-tackle.

  Redskins | Five Redskins rookies sign    Mon May 9, 10:33 AM

Washington Redskins QB Nate Sudfeld, RB Keith Marshall, S Su'a Cravens, DT Matt Ioannidis and LB Steven Daniels signed their rookie deals Monday, May 9.

Footballguys view: We love Marshall's upside and ability. If healthy, he's easily got the ability to be a quality starter. Marshall is fast, instinctive and able to pick up yards after contact. A major knee injury caused him to miss about a year and a half in college, and that's why his draft stock was so low. Sudfeld is a big, tall pocket passer with a rocket arm.

  Bengals | Dominique Easley works out    Sat May 7, 09:17 AM

Free-agent DT Dominique Easley (Patriots) recently worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source. Easley has also worked out for other teams.

Footballguys view: Easley is still only 24 years old, and if he's healthy there's no question that he can be a force on the defensive line. The Falcons have shown interest in Easley as well, and there's no question that he'll find a new home before training camp.

Austin) and LB Kyrie Wilson (Fresno State) on undisclosed deals Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey is the player to watch here. The son of former Denver Broncos WR Ed McCaffrey, Max displayed a ton of speed on film and at Duke's pro day. He was a standout player during the week of practice for the NFLPA game earlier this year, and McCaffrey has no problem regularly taking the top off the defense.
