  Broncos | Von Miller negotiations peaceful    Thu Apr 28, 01:09 PM

Denver Broncos franchise free-agent LB Von Miller said negotiations on a long-term deal with the Broncos are 'just business.' 'My teammates know what type of teammate I am,' Miller said. 'They know what type of guy I am. It's just the business part of it. There's really no hard feelings or anything like that. (The Broncos) know what type of guy I am. I'm expecting a deal any day. That's just the type of mindset I have.'

Footballguys view: Any day now might end up being July when camp starts. The Broncos want him to stay (need him, really) and he wants to stay a Bronco, so we feel this will happen.

  Broncos | Von Miller moving closer to deal    Thu Apr 28, 02:02 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller said he expects to sign a long-term deal with the Broncos 'any day.'

Footballguys view: It would be in the best interest of both Miller and the team to do this, as the Broncos will continue to lean on the defense long term.

  Ravens | Baltimore wants pass-rushers    Tue Apr 26, 02:09 PM

Ohio State DE Joey Bosa and other pass-rushers are the focus of the Baltimore Ravens with their No. 6 pick in the NFL Draft, according to a source. Bosa and Oregon DE DeForest Buckner are considered the top-two pass-rushers in this year's draft class.

Footballguys view: That's a wise move for the Ravens in the 2016 NFL draft. Owner Steve Bisciotti said young pass-rushers are an emphasis in this year's draft because the Ravens don't know how long their dynamic pass-rushers in LBs Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs have left.

  Panthers | Thomas Davis progressing with arm    Mon Apr 25, 03:41 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (arm) said his arm is doing really well, adding that he's excited about where he is now as opposed to where he was a few weeks ago.

Footballguys view: He's one of the toughest players in the league and one of our long-time favorites at linebacker. Davis broke his forearm in the NFC Championship and underwent surgery the following day. The Panthers should take it easy on him as he continues his recovery.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston will play in 2016    Fri Apr 22, 12:36 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) was given assurances by doctors that he will play in 2016, according to general manager John Dorsey.

Footballguys view: Houston had surgery to repair an ACL/LCL injury earlier this year. It sounds like he's ahead in the recovery process and may be available to the team later in the season. When he returns, Houston is unlikely to be at full strength. Without Houston, we'll see Dee Ford get a larger role.

  Broncos | Von Miller, Broncos apart in talks    Thu Apr 21, 03:23 PM

Denver Broncos franchise free-agent LB Von Miller and the Broncos have exchanged an offer and counteroffer, but general manager John Elway said 'you'd like to be a little closer,' in terms of the two sides' wishes. However, the Broncos remain confident they'll get a long-term deal worked out with Miller.

Footballguys view: Miller will be playing this year, rest assured. The defense needs him and at worst, Miller will be playing for a new contract if he doesn't sign one soon.

  Lions | DeAndre Levy works out    Mon Apr 18, 06:00 PM

Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy (hip) participated in the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 18, after undergoing hip surgery this offseason. It is unclear at this point if Levy will be cleared for football drills next month, however.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall at Denver workouts    Mon Apr 18, 11:10 AM

Denver Broncos restricted free-agent LB Brandon M. Marshall is participating in offseason workouts with the team Monday, April 18. He hasn't signed his tender and likely had to sign a waiver to participate.

Footballguys view: A bit of a surprise given Marshall's refusal to sign the second-round tender the team placed on him this offseason. We have a feeling the Broncos will be able to work out a new long-term deal with the talented linebacker. After losing Danny Trevathan (Bears) in free agency, the Broncos need to wrap up Marshall.

  Broncos | Von Miller has sizeable divide in talks    Mon Apr 18, 08:13 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller and the Broncos are about $4 million annually apart in contract negotiations, according to sources. Denver's offer is believed to be around $90 million over five years. Salary-cap guru Mike Sullivan has emerged as a power broker in the roster-shaping process as the team has had a strong bottom-line approach this offseason.

Footballguys view: Deals get done at deadlines, and we're not worried about this until July hits. The two sides have until July 15th to work out a long-term deal. We think Miller ends up signing a deal that pays him roughly $20 million annually.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston recovering nicely    Thu Apr 7, 01:42 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) posted an Instagram video of himself working out less than two months after he had surgery to 'fix' an injured anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. 'Show me someone doing this seven weeks after full ACL and LCL surgery, and I'll show you God's work. I hope y'all watching,' Houston wrote.

Footballguys view: They need Houston back, so this is good news. It's going to be quite the horse race in the West this year, and defense will be a huge part of Kansas City's success or failure against the Broncos, Raiders and Chargers.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison is expected to return for the 2016 season.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall could hold out    Wed Mar 30, 04:19 PM

Denver Broncos restricted free-agent LB Brandon M. Marshall may hold out of the Broncos' offseason program beginning in mid-April in hopes of leveraging a multi-year contract extension. Marshall has already received a second-round tender from Denver worth one year and $2.553 million. Marshall would be able to hold out until June 15 without penalty, at which point the Broncos could re-tender him at a reduced rate of $643,500. The Broncos are expected to conduct their minicamp around June 15.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are experiencing the hangover that comes with a Super Bowl win and increased pay expectations from core players. They still need to figure out their quarterback situation and sign Von Miller long term, so Marshall is unlikely to win this standoff.

  Dolphins | Spencer Paysinger returning to Miami    Wed Mar 30, 09:45 AM

Footballguys view: Good news for the Chiefs here. Houston had surgery to fix an ACL in his knee earlier this month. The impact pass-rusher was dealing with a hyperextended knee in the playoffs.

  Bills | Kroy Biermann visiting Bills    Mon Mar 28, 11:38 AM

Free-agent DE Kroy Biermann (Falcons) is visiting the Buffalo Bills Monday, March 28.

Footballguys view: Biermann is a run-stuffing defensive end who could fit in nicely with what the Bills do under head coach Rex Ryan. We'll see if the two sides can come to an agreement. This is Biermann's first known interest in free agency this offseason.

Free-agent LB O'Brien Schofield (Falcons) has not ruled out the possibility of re-signing with the Atlanta Falcons but knows he may not have a significant role with the team after they signed LB Courtney Upshaw.

Footballguys view: Schofield has an offer from the Falcons and is receiving interest from other teams. If he can find a larger role with a different team then he'll move on.

Free-agent LB Erin Henderson (Jets) agreed to re-sign to a two-year, $5 million deal with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 23, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Demario Davis signed with the Browns in free agency, so Henderson has a big opportunity in IDP leagues. He appeared in every 2015 game for the Jets after they took a chance on him. He's worth an add in deep dynasty IDP leagues.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston out 6-12 months    Tue Mar 22, 10:34 AM

Updating an earlier report, Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) will be out six to 12 months after arthroscopic surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament in February.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Chiefs here. The recovery time puts Houston's availability around the start of the regular season. If (a big IF) he's ready by that point, the Chiefs should ease him in as a part-time player so they don't re-aggravate the injury.

Footballguys view: General manager Reggie McKenzie said he is in no rush to re-sign Smith, though, as he wants to make sure Smith is making the correct off-field decisions first. McKenzie said the conversations with Smith have been good and it's encouraging to see him get his life right. Smith is eligible to be reinstated off the NFL's reserve/suspended list in mid-November.
