  Jaguars | Yannick Ngakoue in contact    Tue Aug 11, 10:32 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue has been in contact with general manager David Caldwell, but it's unknown whether he'll report to camp.

Footballguys view: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Ngakoue has parted ways with his agent. There has been buzz that Ngakoue would be willing to play on his franchise tag elsewhere. He has not signed his tag for the Jaguars and is a no-show for camp.

  Chiefs | Alex Okafor agrees to restructured deal    Mon Aug 10, 02:01 PM

Kansas City Chiefs DE Alex Okafor recently agreed to a restructured contract that lowers the $7.9 million he was due in 2020 to a maximum of $4.96 million this season. He will also reportedly receive $860,000 in per-game roster bonuses and another $2 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Okafor, who initially agreed to a contract that ran through the end of 2021, will also be allowed to hit the open market as a free agent at the end of the season as well. He will continue to play as a reserve player on the defensive line for the Chiefs in 2020.

  Patriots | New England taking a look at two free agents    Mon Aug 10, 01:22 PM

Free-agent TE Jordan Leggett (Buccaneers) and DT Darius Kilgo (Lions) are visiting with the New England Patriots on Monday, Aug. 10. If all goes well with the COVID-19 testing and physicals, then the expectation is the Patriots will sign both, according to sources via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have a pair of talented rookies at the tight end position (Devin Asiasi, Dalton Keene) but they may want more experience in the room. Leggett has always had potential as a pro player but he's far from played up to said potential.

  Bengals | Mike Daniels expected to join Bengals    Sun Aug 9, 03:23 PM

Free-agent DT Mike Daniels (Lions) is meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Aug. 9, and is expected to sign with the team, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Daniels could provide some rotational snaps behind Geno Atkins and DJ Reader, but his profile has fallen greatly since the Packers released him at the open of camp last year and he then failed to make an impact for the Lions.

  Rams | A'Shawn Robinson expected to play in 2020    Sun Aug 9, 02:48 PM

Los Angeles Rams DT A'Shawn Robinson (undisclosed) is expected to play at some point during the 2020 season, but the team will take things slow with him since he was diagnosed with a medical issue during the medical on-boarding process.

Footballguys view: Robinson was signed to help the run defense and provide toughness at nose tackle and defensive end. It sounds like he'll miss regular season games as a precaution, which will get Sebastian Joseph-Day and Greg Gaines on the field more. Ezekiel Elliott's Week 1 matchup just got better.

  Lions | Detroit waives five players    Sun Aug 9, 09:33 AM

The Detroit Lions waived WR Chris Lacy, OG Josh Garnett, LB Christian Sam, DE Jonathan Wynn and DB Michael Jackson Sunday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Garnett was once a first round pick for the Chip Kelly 49ers. Lacy has length and had hung around the Lions roster a few times in the last two years, so he could surface again elsewhere.

  Texans | J.J. Watt feeling rejuvenated     Sat Aug 8, 02:14 PM

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt says he's feeling the best he has in five years as he's been focusing on working out and nutrition during the offseason. 'My body feels as good as it's felt since probably 2014, 2015 somewhere around there,' Watt said, via the Texans' website. 'So I'm really looking forward to getting into camp and just getting to work. ... I would say that the quarantine situation has given me literally nothing to do but work out every day. I mean, there's nothing else you can do. You can't go out. You can't go to the movies. You can't go out to eat. So the workout program for me this offseason has been awesome because I've had a full offseason to do my workouts exactly how I need to do them.'

Miami Dolphins DT Davon Godchaux, S Brandon Jones and DE Shaq Lawson were activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aug. 7.

  Seahawks | Marcell Dareus an option for SEA?    Fri Aug 7, 04:04 PM

Free-agent DT Marcell Dareus (Jaguars) could be an option for the Seattle Seahawks since they are looking to add depth at the defensive tackle position, in the opinion of Sirius XM NFL Radio's Adam Caplan.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks added Jamal Adams in a huge trade but he doesn't the lack of experience and run-stuffing presence on the defensive line. Dareus makes sense for Seattle as a player to contribute on first and second down and obvious run situations.

  Eagles | Vinny Curry back with Philly    Fri Aug 7, 01:18 PM

Free agent DE Vinny Curry is re-signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, Aug. 7, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Curry will be a cheap source of quality snaps in the defensive line rotation who is very familiar with the coaches, scheme, and his teammates. Teams may be reluctant to spend on remaining free agents with a lower cap coming next year, so players like Curry will be inexpensive.

Free agent DL Dion Jordan (Raiders) on Friday, Aug, 7, signed a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, the team announced. Terms of the deal were not available.

Footballguys view: Jordan was a top three pick by Miami but has never come close to his ceiling, dealing with suspensions and underachievement. The 49ers have a formidable rotation on the defensive line that will be tough for Jordan to break into.

  Seahawks | SEA eyeing LBs    Thu Aug 6, 12:36 PM

Free-agent LB Clay Matthews (Rams) and LB Everson Griffen (Vikings) have received interest from the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: The two have a history with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll from their days together at USC. Seattle has been thinking about bringing back LB Jadeveon Clowney but his asking price might be too rich. Griffen has reportedly been getting interest from the Packers for some time but no deal has yet to materialize. Matthews hasn't gotten much interest on the open market but that could change with camps opening up around the league.

Footballguys view: The strong get stronger if/when this deal happens. The 49ers traded away DE DeForest Buckner to the Colts for a first-round pick and now may add a talent to the pass rush. Ansah only played in 11 games last year for Seattle and only had 2.5 sacks.
