  Eagles | Jatavis Brown on retired list    Sun Aug 9, 04:18 PM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Jatavis Brown was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Sunday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: There was some hope that Jim Schwartz could revive Brown's career after he mysteriously fizzled out with the Chargers following an auspicious start to his career. The Eagles are very thin at linebacker and might be looking to make a move at the position.

  Football Team | Reuben Foster removed from PUP list    Sun Aug 9, 10:00 AM

Washington Football Team LB Reuben Foster (knee) was removed from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Foster takes the spot of Derrius Guice. He has a chance to start for a Washington defense that only has Thomas Davis as an established off ball linebacker.

  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.

  Titans | Vic Beasley reports    Fri Aug 7, 11:47 AM

Tennessee Titans LB Vic Beasley reported for COVID-19 testing Friday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Beasley had been away from the team and missed the opt out deadline, so it will be an interesting test case if he has a change of heart about playing this year, especially if the reason he didn't show was concerns about coronavirus. The Titans are counting on him to give pass rush presence opposite Harold Landry after he fizzled out with Atlanta.

  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.

  Broncos | Bradley Chubb declares self ready    Fri Jul 31, 01:37 PM

Denver Broncos LB Bradley Chubb (knee) said Friday, July 31, his recovery from ACL surgery has gone well and said he'll be ready for Week 1. 'No doubt about it,' Chubb said in a Zoom media conference call.

Footballguys view: Getting Chubb back will be a great boost for the Broncos defense. Chubb was phenomenal as a rookie in 2018, snaring 12.0 sacks for the Broncos. Last year, Chubb played the 'Khalil Mack' role in the Vic Fangio defense but was only able to get 1.0 sack in four games before getting hurt. Having Chubb back at full strength will greatly help Von Miller on the other side.

  Patriots | Dont'a Hightower to sit out season    Tue Jul 28, 09:14 AM

New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower opted out of the 2020 season. Hightower became a first-time father on July 16. His mother also has Type 2 diabetes.

Footballguys view: Hightower is unlikely to get the 'high risk' stipend as his opt-out is considered voluntary. The Patriots will miss the veteran linebacker who excels on the field, especially in run defense. Replacing Hightower will be no easy task.

Free-agent DE Markus Golden (Giants) was asked to re-sign with the New York Giants Thursday, July 23, according to the league's official transaction report.

Footballguys view: Golden is going to be a value at a little over four million. He'll be the team's best edge rusher, with hopes that Lorenzo Carter, Oshane Ximines and Kyle Fackrell provide some punch on the other side.

  Texans | Benardrick McKinney ready to go    Wed Jul 22, 09:31 PM

Houston Texans LB Benardrick McKinney (ankle) said he is fully recovered from the ankle surgery he had in February.

Footballguys view: The surgery was more of a clean up and wasn't a major procedure. He was always going to be ready before the start of the regular season and everything is on track. McKinney is a rock solid player who is a key piece of the Texans defense.

  Ravens | Three to compete for OLB job    Sat Jul 18, 06:00 PM

Baltimore Ravens LBs Tyus Bowser, Jaylon Ferguson and Pernell McPhee will compete for one of the starting outside linebacker jobs during training camp.

Footballguys view: Bowser was a second round pick in 2017 and has the highest ceiling. Ferguson was a third round pick last year and more of a natural sack artist. McPhee has the most experience by far and started seven games for the Ravens last year, but the team might be hoping one of the youngsters steps up and outplays him in camp.

  Buccaneers | Shaquil Barrett officially under tag    Thu Jul 16, 05:12 PM

Updating a previous story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Shaquil Barrett officially signed his franchise tag tender Thursday, July 16.

Footballguys view: Barrett is still working on a grievance to be paid as a defensive end instead of outside linebacker but otherwise it sounds like the relationship between him and the team is still very good and he would definitely be in strong consideration to get a long term deal next year if he plays anywhere near the level he did last year.

  Buccaneers | Shaquil Barrett expected to sign tender    Tue Jul 14, 02:01 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Shaquil Barrett told NFL Network he intends to sign his franchise tender Tuesday, July 14. The two sides haven't made much progress toward a long-term deal.

Footballguys view: Barrett had already said he understood that the nature of these times made an extension more difficult. The Bucs have kept the defensive line together in an attempt to maximize the Super Bowl window with Tom Brady and Barrett is a big part of that.
