  Jaguars | Taven Bryan signs rookie deal    Tue Jul 17, 11:10 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DT Taven Bryan signed a four-year, $10.2 million deal Tuesday, July 17. The deal includes a $5.5 million signing bonus and a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars first-round pick out of Florida was one of the most disruptive players in the 2018 NFL draft. Bryan only adds to a tremendous defense that can make plays on all three levels. The rookie is country strong and a fierce competitor who hustles to the echo of the echo of the whistle. The Jagaurs are the first defense taken in many current fantasy drafts, going off the board at D1 (9.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Falcons | Deadrin Senat may be part of rotation    Sun Jul 15, 07:44 PM

Atlanta Falcons DT Deadrin Senat could be part of a defensive line rotation this season and will compete for playing time during training camp.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of South Florida in the 2018 NFL draft, Senat is your classic two-down run stuffing defensive tackle. He's difficult to move when planted at the line of scrimmage, measuring in at 6'0" 315 pounds. Senat can anchor in the middle, play a high number of snaps if needed and actually has some pursuit skill that you don't normally see from a man his size.

  Giants | B.J. Hill could start on defensive line    Sun Jul 15, 10:49 AM

New York Giants DE B.J. Hill could start at left defensive end following an impressive offseason, in the opinion of NJ Advance Media's Ryan Dunleavy.

Footballguys view: Hill fits as an end/tackle tweener to run interference along big bodies Dalvin Tomlinson and Damon Harrison on the defensive line. Former Cardinal Josh Mauro joined James Bettcher and could start eventually, but will serve a four-game suspension to open the season.

The New York Giants are expected to reach a deal with unsigned DT R.J. McIntosh (undisclosed) soon, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

  Browns | Jamie Meder worked with starters    Fri Jul 13, 05:22 PM

Cleveland Browns DT Jamie Meder worked with first-team defense during offseason workouts and will compete with DT Larry Ogunjobi for one of the starting defensive tackle jobs. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said Meder is one of the best run stoppers in the NFL.

Footballguys view: The Browns have a decent rotation at defensive tackle even after they traded away Danny Shelton to the Patriots. Shelton was a key part of their run defense, but the team is confident in the youth and depth at the position and should still be among the tougher run defenses in the NFL.

  Cowboys | Jihad Ward expected to push for starting job    Fri Jul 13, 04:09 PM

Dallas Cowboys DT Jihad Ward likely will push DT Maliek Collins (foot) for one of the starting defensive tackle jobs during training camp. Collins' status for the start of training camp is uncertain because he is recovering from foot surgery.

Footballguys view: Collins is the more explosive and productive pass rusher, but his foot issue is keeping him from building on his surprising rookie year in 2016. Ward was a disappointment in Oakland, but he is impressing so far in Dallas.

Free-agent OG J.R. Sweezy (Buccaneers) may be pursued by the Seattle Seahawks, in the opinion of NFL Network's Mike Garofolo.

Footballguys view: Sweezy graded out poorly for the Buccaneers in 2017, but the Seahawks are still in need of help up front. The veteran guard played in Seattle from 2012 to 2015.

  Seahawks | Rasheem Green inks deal    Wed Jun 20, 03:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks DE Rasheem Green signed his four-year rookie contract Wednesday, June 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft out of USC, Green has the length and hustle to make plays from the edge. He uses his hands well when attacking blockers, and Green does a nice job of exploding to the play. Green needs to add some muscle to his frame even though he measures in at 6'4" 275 pounds. Had he stayed in college one more year, there are some in the scouting community who felt Green could work his way into the first round.

New York Giants DE B.J. Hill received snaps with the first-team defense during minicamp this week.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of NC State this year, Hill is a big-bodied run stuffing defensive lineman. He'll have to improve his play strength in the NFL, but Hill does a good job of recognizing where a play is going and getting to the ball carrier.
