  49ers | Aldon Smith and Roger Goodell could meet soon    Thu Jul 24, 01:08 AM

San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith is expected to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in the near future, which likely would lead to a decision on any discipline for Smith.

Footballguys view: Smith is very likely to be suspended for multiple games. The 49ers defense should be without him and Navorro Bowman to start the season, which makes them a less attractive D/ST play and more attractive matchup - at least one to not automatically avoid until the defense is full strength.

  Vikings | Chad Greenway could start at MLB    Wed Jul 23, 11:17 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Chad Greenway could be used as the starting middle linebacker, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'It's a possibility. We keep working him in there. We're just trying to figure out the best 11 players we can and then figure out where the rest of the guys are going to fit,' Zimmer said. 'It's not out of the question, but time will tell a little bit more on that.'

Footballguys view: Greenway is athletic enough to play in the middle of the field. He has a good nose for the ball, and he arrives at the play with natural violence.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain to practice Thursday    Wed Jul 23, 06:41 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain will practice Thursday, July 24, before traveling to a court date in Alabama Friday, July 25. McClain will return to the team Saturday, July 26, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are hoping that McClain finally plays up to his potential as a pro. He's washed out of the league with the Raiders and the Ravens, but the former standout at Alabama is getting another chance with Dallas. The Cowboys defense took a gut punch when Sean Lee was lost for the season with a knee injury earlier this year.

  Browns | Three waived    Wed Jul 23, 06:16 PM

The Cleveland Browns placed CB Royce Adams, LB Brandon Magee and WR Conner Vernon on the no recall waivers list Wednesday, July 23.

Footballguys view: Vernon was at the 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl earlier this year, but he was not that impressive. It's not a good sign with the WR-needy Browns decide to let him go.

  Broncos | Von Miller to avoid contact for a while    Wed Jul 23, 04:42 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) will not take part in any contact until the third preseason game at the earliest.

Footballguys view: This is no surprise. The Broncos want Miller healthy for the start of the regular season. He's coming back from the knee injury he suffered last year in the Week 16 game against the Houston Texans. If healthy, Miller should be one of the best pass-rushers in the league again after a disappointing 2013 season.

  Giants | Jameel McClain practices    Wed Jul 23, 03:29 PM

New York Giants LB Jameel McClain (foot) participated in the full practice Wednesday, July 23. McClain is sore, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: McClain was carted off yesterday, but he's obviously okay now. Reports indicate that an odd fitting shoe caused the discomfort. So much for athletic footwear.

  Broncos | Von Miller avoids PUP    Wed Jul 23, 02:52 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) will not be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, and he has been cleared for limited work.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Broncos here. He looked to be ahead in the recovery process, and now he will get to be eased into practice at Dove Valley. If healthy, Miller should be a dominant force as a pass-rusher. Opposite of him this year will be free agent addition DeMarcus Ware. The Broncos will be able to put a ton of pressure on opposing quarterbacks in 2014.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston will report    Wed Jul 23, 08:20 AM

Kansas City Chiefs OLB Justin Houston will report to training camp and not hold out.

Footballguys view: Charles is holding out, but Houston is not. The team wants to find new deals for both, and Houston might be first since he's showing good faith by showing up. Houston is set to hit free agency next year. He only has a $1.6 million cap hit in 2014.

  Falcons | Pat Angerer signing    Tue Jul 22, 04:14 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are signing free-agent LB Pat Angerer (Colts), according to a source. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: If Angerer is healthy, the Falcons have an upgrade at the linebacker position. They had to do something after losing Sean Weatherspoon to an Achilles' injury. Angerer must be fully recovered from the knee injury (and offseason surgery), and we should see him get plenty of chances to prove himself with his new team.

  Giants | Jameel McClain injury update    Tue Jul 22, 03:54 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants LB Jameel McClain (foot) was carted off from practice Tuesday, July 22, due to a sore foot. The soreness may have been caused by his shoe, but the team brought him in because the soreness was in the metatarsal area.

  Bills | Brandon Spikes leaves practice    Mon Jul 21, 03:50 PM

Buffalo Bills LB Brandon Spikes was not wearing pads while being looked at by trainers during practice Monday, July 21. He was reportedly being cooled with towels and eventually left the field.

Footballguys view: The Bills defense doesn't need any more injuries. They already lost Kiko Alonso for the season. We'll know more about this Spikes injury soon.

  Bills | Two signed, two cut    Mon Jul 21, 12:34 PM

The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent WR Naaman Roosevelt (Lions) and DT Landon Cohen (Bears) to undisclosed deals. The team released WR Ramses Barden and LB Nathan Williams.

Footballguys view: Barden's days in the NFL are likely over. He was an intriguing third-round pick by the Giants in 2009, but his size and wingspan never helped him at the pro level. Barden lacks the explosiveness and "my ball" mentality to stick around in the NFL.

  Broncos | Four could go on PUP    Mon Jul 21, 11:43 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) and TE Joel Dreessen (knee) could begin the preseason on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be shocked to see all four of these players go on PUP to begin training camp. The Broncos want Miller and Harris to be ready for the start of regular season. Both are coming back from late-season knee injuries suffered in 2013. Miller seems to be ahead in the recovery process, but expect the team to take it easy on him when he does come back.

New England Patriots LB Jamie Collins bulked up in the offseason, but he didn't admit how much weight he has gained.

  Patriots | Nate Byham signs    Sun Jul 20, 03:31 AM

The New England Patriots have signed free-agent TE Nate Byham (Buccaneers). Byham will likely compete with TEs Michael Hoomanawanui and D.J. Williams for a chance to back up Rob Gronkowski.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine Byham beating out either of those two. Gronkowski's injury history makes fantasy owners curious about his backup. However, as we saw last year the team changes the way they distribute the football through the air if Gronk is out.
