  Lions | Ndamukong Suh contract talks pushed back    Mon Jul 28, 03:25 PM

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh's contract extension discussion will be put on hold until the end of the season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Suh could end up getting the franchise tag next offseason, although that seems like a longshot at this time. The veteran defensive tackle has an inflated salary and would cost $26.7 million to franchise tag in 2015. We could see Suh hit the open market if the Lions can't work something out before the start of free agency.

  Patriots | Vince Wilfork feels good    Sat Jul 26, 09:44 PM

New England Patriots DT Vince Wilfork (Achilles') said his surgically repaired Achilles' tendon responded well during one-on-one rush drills during practice Saturday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Getting Wilfork back will be a huge boost for the Patriots defense. He has the size to eat up double teams, and he has the quickness to get middle push as a pass-rusher.

  Browns | Phil Taylor does not finish conditioning test    Fri Jul 25, 05:11 PM

Cleveland Browns DT Phil Taylor did not finish his conditioning test Friday, July 25.

Footballguys view: Of course, this is better than what Safety Donte Whitner accomplished when he did a somersault to end his run and ended up needing to be helped by the training staff. Taylor is a solid run-stopper but isn't on the field most passing downs. This isn't a good sign that he's set for a great year.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus back on active roster    Thu Jul 24, 05:55 PM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus has returned to the team's active roster after passing his physical.

Footballguys view: Dareus has a ton of talent, but his off field antics have to be wearing thin. He showed up to camp out of shape after getting arrested twice this offseason. The Bills have him under contract for two more years, and he may not get a long-term deal from the team if he doesn't clean some stuff up.

  Lions | Ndamukong Suh would be expensive to franchise tag    Thu Jul 24, 05:53 PM

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh would cost $26.7 million under the 2015 franchise tag.

Footballguys view: Thanks, but no thanks. The Lions are not going to shell out that kind of money for Suh on a one-year deal. He has the leverage in any long-term contract negotiations.

  Patriots | Vince Wilfork has no limitations    Thu Jul 24, 04:51 PM

New England Patriots DT Vince Wilfork (Achilles') said he doesn't have any limitations, or he wouldn't be practicing.

Footballguys view: Wilfork's return is literally massive for the Patriots defense, and figuratively big, too. They were playing journeymen DTs in his stead last year. Now with Wilfork, and possibly even first-round pick Dominique Easley, the middle of the Patriots defensive front will be more stout and dangerous.

Denver Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) will not be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, and he has been cleared for limited work.

Footballguys view: "Big Vick" is going to compete with second-year pro Sylvester Williams to be a starting defensive tackle next to Terrance Knighton. Even if Vickerson is not the starter, he'll work as a fine rotational player on the defensive line.
