  Eagles | Rueben Randle headlines Philly's moves    Sun Aug 28, 07:14 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles waived or released WR Rueben Randle, LS John DePalma, CB Randall Evans, OT Andrew Gardner, DT Mike Martin, S Nick Perry and CB Denzel Rice on Sunday, Aug. 28. In addition, the Eagles placed DE Alex McCalister (calf) and LB Joe Walker (knee) on Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Randle was actually relevant in fantasy leagues for stretches of the last two seasons, which is a great sign for Sterling Shepard in his role opposite Odell Beckham Jr. He could get a look before the season starts and we probably haven't heard the last of him. Still, if Randle couldn't make this weak wide receiver group, his future is looking dim.

  Patriots | Terrance Knighton unsure about future    Sat Aug 27, 08:11 AM

New England Patriots DT Terrance Knighton said he is concerned about his future with the team after he did not receive any playing time during the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: That's not a good sign for 'Potroast' and his future with the Patriots. He's a seasoned pro, but he's bounced around since the Broncos decided to let him go. The Patriots may not want Knighton to get hurt before they release him...if that's what they want to do.

Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams, LB Preston Brown, LB Jerry Hughes, CB Stephon Gilmore and CB Ronald Darby will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Don't read too much into Washington's easy time moving the ball against Buffalo tonight. They are being very cautious with their starters after losing Reggie Ragland and IK Enemkpali this summer.

  Broncos | Henry Melton to debut Saturday    Wed Aug 24, 10:10 PM

Denver Broncos DL Henry Melton, signed this week, is expected to make his team debut in the second half of the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Melton's gotten some first-team reps this week for the Broncos in practice. We don't think he starts for them, but it shows how they could trust the veteran in a rotation up front.

  Broncos | Henry Melton terms    Wed Aug 24, 11:20 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos DT Henry Melton received a one-year, $760,000 deal with no guaranteed money. He counts $600,000 against the salary cap.

Footballguys view: Melton was getting some first-team reps with the Broncos earlier this week. He may not start for this team, but he's versatile and can line up at any spot on the line in Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense. Expect Melton to be a rotational player for the Broncos if he makes the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys can't afford any more losses to the defensive line. They're already missing players up front due to suspensions, so they need to be cautious with both players moving forward.

Miami Dolphins DE Mario Williams, DE Cameron Wake and DT Ndamukong Suh are expected to play in the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys Friday, Aug. 19. All three players did not play in the first preseason game.

Footballguys view: This should be a fascinating test for the Miami defense. On paper, that is a potent combination but they are going against the best offensive line in the league. Get your popcorn ready, 'cause it's gonna be a show.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus missed test    Wed Aug 17, 02:08 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus said he was suspended for four games because he missed a drug test.

Footballguys view: A missed test is the same as a hot test. From a financial standpoint, Dareus loses four game checks but his contract was structured where he doesn't lose any of his guaranteed money due to drug suspensions. Dareus carries a $14.5 million cap hit this year with a whopping $47 million left in dead money.

  Bengals | Andrew Billings out for the season    Tue Aug 16, 08:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals DT Andrew Billings (knee) is expected to miss all of his rookie season, according to a source. Billings underwent surgery on his torn meniscus Monday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have lost first-round pick William Jackson III to a torn pectoral already. Their defense is deep enough to absorb these injuries, but it's still a dismaying development for them.

  Saints | Sheldon Rankins breaks leg    Mon Aug 15, 01:17 PM

New Orleans Saints DT Sheldon Rankins (leg) is believed to have a broken fibula based on initial test results, according to a source. Rankins was New Orleans' first-round pick in 2016, and he may land on the Reserve Injured/Designated to Return list.

Footballguys view: Most think that Rankins will miss six-to-eight weeks with this injury. The rookie was impressive through offseason workouts and was in line for a full-time role on a defensive line that needs help. Rankins has the ability to rush the passer from inside, and that was going to be a part of his responsibility as well. Now, the Saints will have to wait about two months for the rookie to be available -- if he's ready at that time.

  Saints | Sheldon Rankins carted off    Mon Aug 15, 10:35 AM

New Orleans Saints DT Sheldon Rankins (undisclosed) was carted off at practice Monday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Rankins is part of a rookie class that the Saints are in love with. The penetrating defensive tackle was supposed to be part of a defensive renaissance this year. We'll be watching this story closely. If the Saints defense is as bad as it was last year, it will only inflate the already astronomical passing numbers Drew Brees usually produces.

Carolina Panthers DT Kawann Short's conversations with the team over a contract extension have gone nowhere and are considered to be 'effectively dead.' There's not much hope of the two sides striking a deal.

Footballguys view: The market at defensive tackle has been set high this year. Short could be franchise tagged next offseason.
