  Giants | Several roster moves for Giants    Tue Nov 14, 05:01 PM

New York Giants WR Kalif Raymond was signed to the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Nov .14. In addition, free-agents LB Akeem Ayers (Colts) and OG John Greco (Saints) were signed. In corresponding moves, DE Devin Taylor and WR Ed Eagan were waived and LB Keenan Robinson (quadriceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Raymond is a super quick receiver who can contribute as a return man. We don't think there will be a lot of targets for him in the current construct of the Giants offense.

  Lions | Devin Taylor not expected back    Wed Feb 22, 04:13 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent DE Devin Taylor is not expected to re-sign with the Lions this offseason.

Footballguys view: Taylor's production went from 7.0 sacks in 2015 to only 4.5 sacks in 2016. Despite coming off a down season, Taylor should generate more than a bit of interest on the open market.

  Lions | Andre Fluellen feeling at home    Tue Aug 5, 02:32 AM

Detroit Lions DE Andre Fluellen is playing his third stint with the Lions, at age 29, but he finally feels at home on the field after spending his football life at defensive tackle. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder was undersized at defensive tackle but isn't a prototypical end, either. Known for his non-stop motor, playing the covered end keeps him only one gap away from the football, Fluellen said. DE Jason Jones is expected to start at the position, but Fluellen has a four more weeks to win a roster spot as he battles DL Darryl Tapp and Devin Taylor.

  Lions | Two combine for strong defensive day    Sat Nov 30, 02:18 AM

Detroit Lions DLs Ziggy Ansah and Devin Taylor combined for six tackles, four sacks (two apiece), three tackles for loss, and four quarterback hits in a 40-10 win over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 28. Taylor also forced a fumble that was recovered by the Lions.

Footballguys view: Ansah has looked like a stud in the making when healthy, and now workout freak Devin Taylor has joined him. The Lions might have restocked both of their starting defensive end positions in one draft.

  Lions | Devin Taylor's role to increase    Sat Nov 9, 09:00 AM

Detroit Lions DE Devin Taylor is likely to see his role increase in Week 10, and got praise from head coach Jim Schwartz. "He's played well in every role that we have given him this year,'' coach Jim Schwartz said of Taylor. "He's affected games and that's what we expected when we drafted where we did. When Jason Jones went down, he needed to step up. If we need him to step up more, we think he's capable of doing that."

The Detroit Lions have declared DL Devin Taylor, CB Jonte Green, QB Kellen Moore, OT LaAdrian Waddle, OG Leroy Harris, RB Mikel Leshoure, WR Ryan Broyles inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Leshoure goes from strong TD maker to inactive in one year with the addition of Reggie Bush and growth of Joique Bell. He can be dropped in redraft leagues. Broyles is going to be taking it slow coming back from his second ACL tear. 2012 UDFA Patrick Edwards will get ample opportunity to shine with Broyles out this week.
