  Eagles | Trent Cole to be released    Tue Mar 3, 05:31 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles LB Trent Cole will be released after both sides could not agree on a new contract, according to a source.

Footballguys view: With a cap number of $11.6 million, it's no surprise the Eagles have let Cole go. He's compiled 14.5 sacks over the last two years, and the aging veteran could draw some interest on the open market.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent LB Brian Orakpo had been working on a long-term deal to re-sign with the team, but sources said it's not looking good.

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent LB Dwight Freeney said he plans to play next season after considering retirement.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston franchise tagged    Mon Mar 2, 09:40 AM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston had the franchise tag placed on him Monday, March 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs aren't going to let one of the best pass-rushers in the league move on in free agency. They'll work diligently to get something done with Houston, but now they're also going to turn their attention to keeping center Rodney Hudson.

  Titans | May show interest in James Harrison    Sun Mar 1, 12:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent LB James Harrison could receive interest from the Tennessee Titans since they added assistant head coach/defense Dick LeBeau this offseason.

Footballguys view: The move would make a lot of sense for both sides. Harrison is not the player he used to be, but he could work well as a part-time pass-rusher for the Titans.

  Steelers | Jason Worilds to hit market    Thu Feb 26, 12:16 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers do not plan to use the transition tag on impending free-agent LB Jason Worilds, allowing him to hit free agency March 10, a league source said Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Worilds has had 15.5 sacks over the last two seasons, the most by any Steelers player during that time. The Steelers are in desperate need of clearing up cap space. At this time, they are about $7 million over the cap. The new league year begins on March 10th, and they'll need to get their cap situation lined up before then.

  Eagles | Brandon Graham unlikely to receive franchise tag    Tue Feb 17, 01:06 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent LB Brandon Graham is unlikely to receive the franchise tag because of the money it would cost the team.

Footballguys view: CSN Philly has reported that Graham wants a deal around $30 million with $20 million guaranteed. He'll be a hot player on the open market as one of the best 3-4 outside linebackers.

  Chiefs | Chiefs, Justin Houston talking at combine     Mon Feb 16, 11:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent LB Justin Houston's representation is expected to meet with the team at the NFL Scouting Combine to discuss a contract extension, and a source familiar with the situation said the Chiefs will not designate Houston with a franchise tender prior to the meeting.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs could use the franchise tag on Houston. He's one of the best pass-rushers in the game today, and Houston is coming off a 22-sack season. There's no way the Chiefs are going to let that kind of talent and production walk in free agency.

  Cardinals | John Abraham set to become free agent    Mon Feb 16, 06:20 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB John Abraham is set to become an unrestricted free agent this March.

Footballguys view: The 2014 season was a wash for the veteran pass-rusher. Abraham had 10.5 sacks two years ago, but last season he was concussed early and put on season-ending injured reserve. We'll see if there's a team out there willing to sign Abraham to a one-year "prove it" deal. He might have to wait until after Week 1 of the season to find a new home. After Week 1, veteran salaries are not fully guaranteed for the year.

  Steelers | Want to re-sign Jason Worilds    Wed Feb 11, 02:44 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers OLB Jason Worilds, who will hit free agency this offseason, will be targeted for re-signing by the team.

Footballguys view: Worilds may have the transition tag applied to him once again, as it was in 2014. This may be the best move for the cap-strapped Steelers. The transition tag would cost the Steelers around $11 million this year. It's a less expensive move than putting the franchise tag on a player. With the transition tag, the Steelers would have the first right of refusal. However, there would be no compensation if they lose Worilds to a team that signs him to an offer sheet.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston likely to be tagged    Sun Feb 8, 04:21 PM

Kansas City Chiefs OLB Justin Houston is likely to receive the franchise tag before free agency gets underway next month.

Footballguys view: The franchise tag should cost the Chiefs roughly $13.1 million in 2015. That gives Houston a one-year fully guaranteed salary, but it also gives the Chiefs until July 15th to work out a new long-term contract with their talented pass-rusher.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict had microfracture surgery    Mon Jan 26, 12:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) is recovering from microfracture surgery on his left knee, and the surgeon who operated on him is hoping that he will be at full strength in time for training camp. 'I don't see any reason, if this thing heals like we want and we think it will, why he won't be back like he was,' Dr. Neal ElAttrache said. 'Microfracture has a bad connotation, but there are plenty of guys who have come back and been able to play like before. But it's not really news when it works out.' Burfict is expected to heal rapidly since his knee was in good shape structurally.

Footballguys view: Knee injuries aren't a big deal anymore, but microfracture surgery always comes with added concerns. Burfict will be brought along slowly as he deals with this more serious surgery. He'll be on crutches for six weeks before he can start conditioning his knee, and he'll be able to run after three months.
