  Jets | Jordan Jenkins looking to improve    Sun May 21, 04:47 PM

New York Jets LB Jordan Jenkins has been working on improving his pass rush skills this offseason.

Footballguys view: Jenkins has been in Atlanta training with former NFL DE Chuck Smith this offseason. A run-stuffing linebacker, the Jets made Jenkins their third-round pick in 2016. He's only learning the nuances of rushing the passer but he has the heart and hustle to make a leap in 2017.

  Jets | Lorenzo Mauldin drops weight    Sun May 21, 04:43 PM

New York Jets LB Lorenzo Mauldin has lost 10 pounds this offseason in hopes of regaining his rookie year agility.

Footballguys view: Mauldin was known as a productive hustle player and pass rusher coming out of Louisville as a third-round pick in 2015. In 20 games over the last two years (only seven in 2016), Mauldin has only 6.5 sacks and 33 total tackles.

  Ravens | Kamalei Correa hopes to start    Sat May 20, 12:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Kamalei Correa said he is more comfortable with the defensive scheme and hopes to win the starting inside linebacker job next to LB C.J. Mosley.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick out of Boise State in 2016, Correa has intriguing upside as a pass-rusher because of his quick-twitch athleticism. Correa said he has been working with defensive coordinator Dean Pees and linebackers coach Don Martindale this offseason to improve his play.

  Redskins | Junior Galette making progress    Tue May 16, 02:19 PM

Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette (Achilles') has begun running and lifting, but he is expected to be held out of team drills until training camp, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Ultimately, when Galette returns will be up to Galette and the team trainers.

Footballguys view: If Washington can get anything out of Galette this year they should consider it a bonus. He's missed the last two seasons fully due to Achilles' problems and may never be the player he used to be. We should get an update on his status around the start of training camp.

  Saints | New Orleans eyeing open competition at DE    Sun May 14, 02:32 PM

New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan has one defensive end spot locked up, but the team expects an 'open competition' between Alex Okafor, Obum Gwacham, Hau'oli Kikaha and third-round pick Trey Hendrickson for the defensive end spot opposite him.

Footballguys view: The Saints need to find a new starter opposite Jordan after not renewing the contract of Paul Kruger. Okafor has the experience advantage and has an 8.0 sack season (2014) on his resume (when he was with the Cardinals). Hendrickson, the rookie from FAU, is known as a hustle player who just won't quit. He can get the quarterback with bend, burst and a burning desire to make a play. Hendrickson may be best suited as a rotational player, but the upside is there for him to be an effective starter.

  Chiefs | Dee Ford working on technique    Wed May 3, 02:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford has been working with some pass rush specialists this offseason to improve his technique, according to general manager John Dorsey. Dorsey said he wants to see continual growth from Ford in 2017.

Footballguys view: Ford has been getting better and better each year as a pro. He had a career-high 10.0 sacks in 2016, and Ford should get plenty of opportunity to best that number in 2017.

  Eagles | Marcus Smith's optioned not exercised    Mon May 1, 06:27 PM

Philadelphia Eagles DE Marcus Smith's fifth-year option will not be picked up by the Eagles, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Smith has turned in a disappointing pro career so far with only four career sacks. The Eagles added Chris Long in free agency and they drafted Derek Barnett in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. Smith isn't guaranteed to make the 53-man roster.

  Vikings | Anthony Barr's option exercised    Mon May 1, 03:53 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr's fifth-year option was picked up Monday, May 1, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A top-10 pick in 2014, Barr is now under the Vikings control through 2018. Barr had two fine seasons to begin his pro career, but he struggled in 2016 and was called out by head coach Mike Zimmer. We'll see if Barr can get things back on track this year.

  Chiefs | Dee Ford's option picked up    Mon May 1, 12:44 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Ford took some time to get going as a pro, but he finished with 10 sacks last year. He should once again line up opposite Justin Houston to provide the Chiefs with a dangerous pass rusher with the upside to get double-digit sacks.

Footballguys view: The Texans picked up Clowney's fifth-year option for 2018 at the end of the week. He had a breakout campaign in 2016 and with another strong season we could see the Texans working diligently to keep him under contract.

Free-agent LB Rey Maualuga (Bengals) visited the Kansas City Chiefs last week but the two sides were unable to agree to terms on a deal, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
