  Cardinals | Tyrann Mathieu may not be ready    Mon May 23, 02:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) said he doesn't necessarily want to play if he's only at 90% health when the regular season begins. Mathieu's goal was to return by the regular season opener Sept. 11, but he doesn't want to make the mistake of coming back too early, which he said he did when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in 2013.

Footballguys view: We'll be watching this situation closely as it continues to unfold. Obviously Mathieu is a fine player but injuries have knocked his pro career off track. Mathieu did say his rehabilitation is going as planned so far, though, but he wants to come back properly.

  NFL | James Ihedigbo wants contender    Thu May 19, 05:31 PM

Free-agent SS James Ihedigbo (Lions) isn't ready to retire from the NFL and wants to play for a team that is capable of winning right now.

Footballguys view: Well he didn't play well last season, starting just eight and doesn't add all that much to a secondary. Once camp starts he might find a home, but only as depth or a rotational player.

  Bengals | Shawn Williams inks extension    Tue May 17, 09:55 AM

Cincinnati Bengals SS Shawn Williams signed a four-year extension Tuesday, May 17, through the 2020 season. Terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Williams' four-year extension is worth $19.5 million with $2 million in incentives. He's been a special teams standout for the Bengals, but now he's expected to start in Reggie Nelson's (Raiders) old spot.

  Cardinals | Tyrann Mathieu near extension    Mon May 16, 08:29 AM

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu is deep in negotiations for a contract extension Monday, May 16, that could make him the highest-paid safety in the league.

Footballguys view: It's a risky move to sign Mathieu to big long-term money. He's torn his ACL twice since 2013 and is somewhat injury prone dating back to his college days at LSU. If healthy, Mathieu can make plays as a slot corner or a safety. The Cardinals should be creative with the way they get this deal done.

  Ravens | Marlon Brown among Ravens' cuts    Fri May 13, 02:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown (failed physical), DB Jermaine Whitehead, S Nick X. Perry and DE Nordly Capi were released Friday, May 13.

Footballguys view: It was all downhill for Brown after his rookie season in 2013. That year, Brown had 49 catches for 524 yards and a whopping seven touchdowns. He failed to even match those numbers combined over the next two seasons. Brown may have trouble latching on with another team.

  Texans | K.J. Dillon signs rookie contract    Thu May 5, 07:29 PM

Houston Texans S K.J. Dillon - one of the team's two fifth-round picks - signed his rookie contract Thursday, May 5.

Footballguys view: Dillon is a hard-hitting safety who can play close to the line of scrimmage. He'll begin his pro career as a reserve safety and special teams player, but the upside of a starter is there.

  Giants | Two Giants cut    Thu May 5, 10:21 AM

  Ravens | Matt Elam's option declined    Mon May 2, 02:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam's fifth-year option was not picked up by the Ravens Monday, May 2. He will be a free agent after the 2016 season.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here given where Elam's pro career has the bench. The team benched him in 2014 and then he missed all of 2015 with a torn biceps. There's a chance that Elam doesn't make the Ravens final roster.

Footballguys view: Swain is a big power back who should transition to fullback at the pro level. If he makes the team, he could help blast open holes for Melvin Gordon.

  49ers | Eric Reid will return in 2017    Wed Apr 20, 11:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers FS Eric Reid will either have his fifth-year option picked up, or he will be signed to an extension, general manager Trent Baalke said Wednesday, April 20. 'We're definitely looking at both options,' Baalke said. 'If we could get something done longer, we'll look at that.'

Footballguys view: It's a good move for a team which saw the departure of a lot of vets during 2015's off season. Reid will continue to bring consistency to the secondary for the Niners.

  Broncos | Shiloh Keo re-signs with Denver    Mon Apr 18, 10:06 AM

Free-agent SS Shiloh Keo (Broncos) re-signed with the Denver Broncos on a one-year deal Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: Keo took to Twitter last year to reach out to Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. The two had worked together with the Texans, and Keo felt he could fit what the Broncos were doing on defense. The team added him late last year and he made a couple of plays on defense and special teams on the way to the Super Bowl 50 victory. Keo will once again give the Broncos depth at the safety position.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman among breakout candidates    Sun Apr 17, 09:15 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman, WR Justin Hardy, LB, Vic Beasley, DT Grady Jarrett, CB Jalen Collins and FS Robenson Therezie are the six players head coach Dan Quinn is counting on to elevate their games in 2016.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to remember that Coleman began the 2015 season as the starter ahead of Devonta Freeman. This season, Freeman should be the lead back but Coleman is too talented to keep on the sideline. That's why the Falcons could use a RBBC with a near 50/50 split--directly impacting both RBs fantasy value.

  Broncos | Shiloh Keo expected to re-sign    Fri Apr 15, 06:44 PM

Free-agent SS Shiloh Keo (Broncos) is expected to re-sign with the Denver Broncos when the players report for offseason workouts Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: Keo took to Twitter last year to reach out to Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips for a job. He was signed by the Broncos (Keo played under Phillips with the Texans) and made a few plays for them in the playoffs on their way to a Super Bowl championship. With David Bruton (Washington) and Omar Bolden (Bears) moving on in free agency, the Broncos safety depth is a concern.

  Bengals | Taylor Mays signs with Bengals    Fri Apr 15, 02:14 PM

  Steelers | Donte Whitner could be on radar    Tue Apr 5, 10:24 PM

Free-agent SS Donte Whitner (Browns) could be a player the Pittsburgh Steelers discuss, but at 30 years old the team might also feel they want to get younger at the position and Whitner does not offer much of an upgrade.

Footballguys view: Whitner's one of the top safeties available on the open market. He can still play at a fairly high level, and Whitner would bring an intimidation factor to the Steelers secondary.
