  Ravens | Justin Houston agrees to terms    Sat Jul 31, 11:45 AM

Free-agent DE Justin Houston (Colts) agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, July 31, on a one-year contract worth up to $4 million, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: The Ravens defense gets another pass-rusher with Houston joining the fold. He reportedly turned down significantly more money from other clubs in order to join the Ravens, according to Schefter's sources. Houston is not the player he used to be, but the Ravens will be able to get effective play and plenty of pressure from him in their aggressive defense.

  49ers | Nick Bosa on target for opener    Fri Jul 30, 10:12 AM

San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa (knee) said he's on target to play in Week 1. 'I looked at the schedule, but I knew when it was an early injury [last year], for the most part, I would probably be ready to go for Week 1,' Bosa said. 'And everything right now is trending towards that. So I'm hoping to ramp it up as I go and be ready to give it all I got Week 1.'

Footballguys view: Bosa's return will be huge for a defense that lost its bite last year. Dee Ford is also back on the practice field, so the 49ers defense could be greatly improved in the pass rush if they can both stay healthy.

  Colts | Justin Houston will play    Fri Jul 30, 08:57 AM

Free-agent DE Justin Houston (Colts) will play in the 2021 season and has been pursued by multiple teams in the offseason.

Footballguys view: Houston will be an impact edge rush signing and he can play in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. He won't be an IDP factor except in sack heavy leagues, but he could play a part in the balance of power in a division or conference.

  Cowboys | Demarcus Lawrence underwent surgery    Thu Jul 22, 01:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) underwent back surgery during the offseason, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday, July 22. 'I think it was more of a cleanup. ... He looks great,' McCarthy said.

Footballguys view: There is no such as minor back surgery, and as Eric Stoner says, rarely do we hear that a player "used to" have back issues. Lawrence is a crucial player in a Dallas defense that sorely needs to improve the pass rush.

  Cowboys | Five players starting on PUP    Thu Jul 22, 12:49 PM

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (back), DT Trysten Hill (knee), PK Greg Zuerlein (back), DE Chauncey Golston (hamstring) and OG Mitch Hyatt (knee) will begin training camp on the Physcially Unable to Perform list, according to a source Thursday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Lawrence's history of back problems is well-chronicled and the Cowboys don't have a lot of proven edge rush depth behind him. Mike McCarthy said Hill is the "farthest away", which is an issue for a thin defensive tackle group. The Cowboys could still be active in free agency if these issues don't get resolved soon. Zuerlein's situation is one to monitor in leagues that still use kickers, as he often goes in the top five kickers off of the board.

Dallas Cowboys third-round pick DE Chauncey Golston signed his rookie, four-year deal Wednesday, July 21. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Golston is mostly a projection as an outside pass rusher and might be better off going after the passer from an interior defensive line spot. He has a high ceiling but might not contribute much in his rookie year.

  Chiefs | Alex Okafor returning to Kansas City    Tue Jul 20, 01:59 PM

Free-agent DE/LB Alex Okafor (Chiefs) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, July 20. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Okafor played 21 games for the Chiefs over the last two years, including nine starts, contributing 8 sacks. The team doesn't have a strong #2 edge rusher behind Frank Clark, who has a felony concealed weapons charge hanging over him right now. They could decide to use Chris Jones more at end, but Okafor should be able to provide some quality situational snaps in any event.

Free-agent LB Justin Houston (Colts) received interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the two sides are not expected to reach an agreement.

  Steelers | Melvin Ingram to visit    Sun Jul 18, 05:21 PM

Free-agent LB Melvin Ingram (Chargers) is expected to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week.

Footballguys view: Ingram could be of help to both 3-4 and 4-3 teams. The Steelers are going to rely on 2020 third round pick Alex Highsmith, who was a breakout rookie last year, to replace Bud Dupree, but they have little depth at outside linebacker after him. Ingram could split the role with Highsmith and give the team insurance if Highsmith has a sophomore slump. The team does have some newfound cap room after they released David DeCastro last month.
