  Vikings | Sharrif Floyd has option exercised    Mon May 2, 10:43 AM

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Floyd has not put together a 16-game season over the last two years, but when healthy he can be an impact player. He's huge and tough to move as a run-stuffer. The option is worth $6.7 million in 2017.

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.

  Saints | Sheldon Rankins linked to Saints    Thu Apr 28, 01:26 PM

Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins has been linked to the New Orleans Saints in the first round.

Footballguys view: The Saints need defensive help, so we could totally see Rankins ending up with the Saints. An exceptionally productive player both as a bull­rusher and edge rusher Rankins would be a great help to the defense.

  NFL | Stock rising for two defensive linemen     Wed Apr 27, 04:04 PM

The draft stock of Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins and Mississippi State DT Chris D. Jones continues to rise a day before the NFL Draft. Rankins and Jones are viewed by many teams to be the best interior pass-rushers in this year's draft.

Footballguys view: Rankins could go in the top 12 and Jones could go in the first round, as players like Aaron Donald have shown the immense value of interior pass rush.

  Colts | Jihad Ward meets with Colts    Wed Apr 27, 10:33 AM

Illinois DT Jihad Ward met with Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson Tuesday, April 26.

Footballguys view: Ward is versatile and athletic, but he is still a project as a defensive lineman after starting his junior college career as a wide receiver/safety. The Colts should be looking at him in the second round, although his ceiling could get him into first round consideration.

  Panthers | Star Lotulelei has option picked up    Tue Apr 26, 10:43 AM

Carolina Panthers DT Star Lotulelei had his fifth-year option exercised Tuesday, April 26.

Footballguys view: A great move for the Panthers here. Picking up the option will cost the team $6.7 million...a price easy to pay for one of the best in the league at his position. Expect the Panthers to now try and lock up fellow DT K.K. Short with a long-term deal.

Footballguys view: Both have been solid for the Vikings, so picking up their options is only good sense. They'll definitely command some good money when that's over, though.

Mississippi State DT Chris D. Jones visited with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, April 19, according to sources. Jones could be a first-round draft pick. Jones has also met with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Jones is a guy whose value rose this past season and who has shown flashes of great production on tape and in games. His quickness off the snap and versatile skillset are something the Seahawks look for and he could be a great fit in the defense.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman among breakout candidates    Sun Apr 17, 09:15 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman, WR Justin Hardy, LB, Vic Beasley, DT Grady Jarrett, CB Jalen Collins and FS Robenson Therezie are the six players head coach Dan Quinn is counting on to elevate their games in 2016.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to remember that Coleman began the 2015 season as the starter ahead of Devonta Freeman. This season, Freeman should be the lead back but Coleman is too talented to keep on the sideline. That's why the Falcons could use a RBBC with a near 50/50 split--directly impacting both RBs fantasy value.

Updating a previous report, free-agent DL Dominique Easley (Patriots) is healthy and still had guaranteed money left when he was cut by the New England Patriots. The Patriots essentially paid him to leave.

Footballguys view: Ouch. Not a good sign for Easley here. Reports are coming in that off-field issues got Easley bounced from the Patriots and not the chronic knee problems that have plagued him as a pro.

  Chargers | Brandon Mebane is one-and-done candidate    Wed Apr 6, 11:09 PM

Only the first year of San Diego Chargers DT Brandon Mebane's contract is guaranteed, giving him $2.5 million to sign and $3 million base salary. At 31, he needs to play at a high level, as the team can evaluated him after one year and potentially move on with little consequence if it doesn't work out in 2016.

  Patriots | Two players officially sign    Mon Apr 4, 05:52 PM

New England Patriots DT Terrance Knighton and TE Clay Harbor officially signed with the Patriots Monday, April 4.

  Raiders | Mario Edwards could play    Wed Mar 30, 05:36 PM

There is optimism that Oakland Raiders DE Mario Edwards Jr. (neck) could still be able to play in 2016 despite suffering a neck injury last season, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Footballguys view: Edwards was seen a bit of a risky pick for an early second selection, but he really came on to form a dynamic duo with Khalil Mack before suffering the freak neck injury. While the team is expressing optimism, Edwards status is still up in the air.

Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Redskins) is leaning towards signing with the New England Patriots, according to a source. Knighton has visited the Patriots and the Washington Redskins.

  Redskins | Terrance Knighton visiting    Tue Mar 29, 04:24 PM

Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Redskins) is visiting the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 29, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Knighton didn't get a contract with the Patriots done, so he's looking to see if Washington wants to bring him back. The big man can naturally stuff the middle, and he'll surprisingly get some interior pressure on the QB from time to time.

  Steelers | Hosted Mike Martin    Tue Mar 29, 03:16 PM

Free-agent DT Mike Martin (Titans) recently visited the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Martin only played 52 snaps in 2015 before a knee injury ended his season. He's a super deep reserve player who might struggle to even make a roster come training camp.
