  Panthers | Shaq Thompson leaves practice early    Sat Jul 31, 09:03 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Shaq Thompson (lower body) was sent home early from practice after he experienced some tightness in his lower body, according to head coach Matt Rhule.

Footballguys view: Thompson is a key player in the Panthers defense, but they did add Denzel Perryman and Haason Reddick to the linebacker group this offseason. Perryman's IDP value would trend up if Thompson's tightness turns into a larger issue.

  Steelers | Vince Williams retires    Wed Jul 21, 06:10 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Vince Williams announced his retirement from professional football Wednesday, July 21.

Footballguys view: Robert Spillane is fully entrenched as the starter next to Devin Bush now. The team has little depth at inside linebacker and might have to turn to fourth round pick Buddy Johnson if Bush or Spillane go down. Williams was an extremely productive sixth round pick who spent all eight years of his career in Pittsburgh, admirably carrying on the tradition of hard-nosed Steelers linebackers.

  Steelers | Devin Bush to be full participant    Wed Jul 21, 05:39 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Devin Bush (knee) is expected to be a full participant once practices begin, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Steelers defense slowed down from their torrid pace when Bush got hurt. Vince Williams retirement makes Bush's health even more important. We'll watch the reports out of camp and how the Steelers are handling to know just how strong we should project their defense this year.

  49ers | Fred Warner lands huge extension    Wed Jul 21, 01:04 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB Fred Warner reportedly agreed to terms on a five-year extension worth more than $95 million - including $40.5 million in guarantees - on Wednesday, July 21. The deal will make him the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league.

Footballguys view: Warner is one of the best off ball linebackers in the game and deserves this deal. The 49ers were able to land him with a third round pick in 2018. Only Darius Leonard has arguably been better among the many off ball linebackers drafted before him that season.

  Seahawks | K.J. Wright keeping door open for SEA    Wed Jul 21, 11:01 AM

Free-agent LB K.J. Wright (Seahawks) said he's not closing the door on the Seattle Seahawks. 'Yes, there is a chance,' Wright said. 'There is a chance, and I'm not closing the door on Seattle. Going into free agency, I thought it'd be a no-brainer, but they're going to wait until training camp, so we'll see.'

Footballguys view: Wright would fit in a lot of defenses, but might prefer returning to the only team he has ever played for with not much cap room left for teams to induce him to sign elsewhere.

Footballguys view: Alexander and the rest of the last wave of free agents are going to have to take small salaries and might be more persuaded to sign somewhere they know and somewhere that has a chance to go to a Super Bowl. Both apply to the Saints.
