  Patriots | Dont'a Hightower back by camp?    Sat Feb 10, 09:09 PM

New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Hightower only played in five games in 2017 and was put on Injured Reserve in November with this shoulder injury. The team is going to be cautious with Hightower through OTAs and minicamp. That way he can be ready for full participation in training camp.

  Eagles | Nigel Bradham may be top priority    Sat Feb 10, 02:43 PM

  Chiefs | Two Chiefs LBs could be cut    Fri Feb 9, 12:22 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson and LB Tamba Hali could be released this offseason, in the opinion of beat writer Adam Teicher.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick of the Chiefs in 2005, it would be odd to see Johnson playing in another uniform. He graded out positively in 2017 but the Chiefs seem intent to move on with Reggie Ragland in Johnson's spot. Hali barely played last year (116 snaps) and is not the same player he used to be. Releasing both would free up over $15 million on the Chiefs cap.

  Saints | Alex Anzalone unsure for OTAs    Wed Feb 7, 11:21 PM

Anzalone added that he is 'really excited' for the 2018 season.

  Patriots | New England signs 10 players    Tue Feb 6, 05:13 PM

New England Patriots practice squad players C James Ferentz, WR Cody Hollister, S David X. Jones, OL Jason King, CB Ryan Lewis, WR Riley McCarron, S Damarius Travis, LB Trevor Reilly, TE Will Tye and CB Jomal Wiltz were signed Tuesday, Feb. 6.

Footballguys view: Tye is the player to watch here as we're always interested in Patriots tight ends. He was an intriguing dynasty player earlier in his career with the Giants, but Tye bounced to the Jets and then to the Patriots practice squad for 2017.

'It's like a cold,' Kendricks said. 'I think it started sometime last week. Something we've got to get through. We'll be fine.'

Footballguys view: It's going to be impossible to keep these guys off the field. Expect them to play in anything short of an iron lung on Sunday.

  Broncos | Von Miller wants Kirk Cousins     Wed Jan 31, 01:34 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins would be welcomed by Denver Broncos LB Von Miller. 'Kirk could take us over the edge,' Miller said, 'but that's the National Football League. There are a lot of teams that need Kirk.'

Footballguys view: The Broncos made a lot of sense as a win now team for Cousins, and John Elway can establish a connection with Cousins to close the deal, just as he did with Peyton Manning. Denver might be the strongest candidate for Cousins, along with the Jets.

  Titans | Tyrone McKenzie hired by TEN    Tue Jan 30, 09:35 AM

Los Angeles Rams assistant Tyrone McKenzie was hired by the Tennessee Titans Tuesday, Jan. 30, as inside linebackers coach.

Footballguys view: McKenzie played under Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees in 2009 in New England. Avery Williamson is a free agent this year, so McKenzie might be breaking in a new starter next to Wesley Woodyard.

  NFL | Darius Leonard draws lofty comparison    Sat Jan 27, 09:43 PM

South Carolina State LB Darius Leonard registered a game-high 14 tackles during the Senior Bowl Saturday, Jan. 27, and Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com compared Leonard to Jacksonville Jaguars LB Telvin Smith.

Footballguys view: The NFL is shifting towards lighter, faster linebackers who might have been negatively tagged as safety/linebacker tweeners in previous years. Leonard is coming into the league at the right time and should be on IDP dynasty league rookie draft radars.

  Cardinals | Chandler Jones open to possible change    Thu Jan 25, 04:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Chandler Jones said he would not have a problem moving to defensive end next season if head coach Steve Wilks decides to use a 4-3 defensive alignment.

Footballguys view: Jones was one of the best defensive players in the league this year as a 3-4 OLB, but he has experience as a 4-3 end with New England. More than alignment, he'll miss defensive coordinator James Bettcher's talent for getting his best pass rushers in good matchups. Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon will profit from that with the Giants landing Bettcher earlier this week.

  Titans | Tennessee hires Mike Vrabel    Sat Jan 20, 06:09 PM

The Tennessee Titans have hired Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel as their new head coach.

Footballguys view: Things change quickly around here. A week ago, the Titans were losing to the Patriots in the Divisional Round in the playoffs. After that game, there was buzz that Mike Mularkey was going to get an extension as their head coach. Shortly thereafter, Mularkey and the team parted ways. They may have wanted to get Patriots OC Josh McDaniels a week ago, but he seems destined to be the head coach of the Colts when New England is done in the postseason. Vrabel spent one year (2017) as the Texans defensive coordinator. The long-time NFL linebacker has a defensive mind and needs to find the best offensive minds he can to put around young quarterback Marcus Mariota.

  Titans | Tennessee to talk with Mike Vrabel    Mon Jan 15, 01:00 PM

Footballguys view: Vrabel has gotten some interest from a couple of other teams, most notably the Colts where he seems to be in the running (although likely behind Josh McDaniels).
