  Jaguars | Tom Coughlin may have violated CBA    Sat Apr 20, 10:32 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars executive vice president Tom Coughlin may have violated NFL offseason rules when he criticized CB Jalen Ramsey and LB Telvin Smith for not attending a voluntary workout earlier this week. 'We're close to 100 percent attendance - and quite frankly, all of our players should be here,' Coughlin said in a comment posted on the team's official website. The league's collective bargaining agreement states that club officials are not permitted to make players feel like they have to attend any specific workout. If the NFL decides to investigate and determines that Coughlin violated any rules, the Jaguars could be fined, forfeit future offseason workout sessions or even lose a draft pick.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney extension still the plan    Fri Apr 19, 11:13 AM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney is still in the team's plans to sign a long-term deal, according to general manager Brian Gaine.

Footballguys view: Clowney wants a new deal and the two sides have until mid-July to work something out. Deals get done at deadlines in the NFL, so we likely won't have any answer on this until that time.

  Colts | Darius Leonard aiming to play lighter in 2019    Tue Apr 16, 09:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Darius Leonard weighs 221 pounds at the moment and intends to keep his weight below 225 in order to take advantage of his athleticism.'I'm not a typical linebacker. I'm more of a speed guy, very athletic so if I'm going to play in space, I'm going to need to move. ... I played all my life at 215, 220 and was never over 225. And last year I was injured a lot, that was when I was pretty heavy, so I want to stay down. Hopefully, I can cut some of that down,' Leonard told Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney, team not close on deal    Mon Apr 15, 01:43 AM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney, the team's unsigned franchise player, will not attend the offseason conditioning program or organized team activities (OTAs). Beat writer Aaron Wilson says there is no deal in sight, and no signing is expected anytime soon.

Footballguys view: Clowney and the Texans have until July 15th to agree to a new long-term deal. They aren't close to that yet, but deals get done at deadlines in the NFL. Perhaps as we get closer to mid-July something will give. Some out there think this could get ugly.

Free-agent LB Justin Houston (Chiefs) was signed to a two-year, $24 million contract by the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, March 21, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Houston gives the Colts much needed edge rush presence at a reasonable price. They were apparently in on Preston Smith, but lost out to the Packers. They are getting a better, if less durable player right now, one that could help them get past his old Chiefs teams in the playoffs.

  49ers | Dee Ford financial details    Sat Mar 16, 11:54 AM

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers LB Dee Ford's five-year contract has a base value of $85 million and a maximum value of $87.5 million, with $45 million in guaranteed money. The deal can turn into a one-year, $20.5 million pact, with $19.75 million in guaranteed money due by next week. The remaining $25.25 million in guaranteed money is for injury only, with $13.65 million becoming fully guaranteed April 1, 2020. If the 49ers cut Ford after the 2019 season, they would take a salary cap hit of $6.4 million. If he remains with San Francisco for the full length of the contract, he would earn base salaries of $14.5 million in 2020, $16 million in 2021 and $17 million each during the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
