  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.

  Cardinals | Jordan Hicks could be moved    Wed Jul 7, 05:53 PM

  Dolphins | Elandon Roberts missed minicamp    Sat Jun 26, 05:21 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Elandon Roberts (knee) did not participate in the mandatory minicamp because he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Roberts is recovering from a serious knee injury he suffered in December that required surgery. The team brought him back on a one year, $2 million deal while he was still sidelined by the surgery to be a leader of the defense and he is one of only two returning captains from last year (offensive lineman Jesse Davis is the other). Miami traded for Benardrick McKinney in the offseason, and he could be the other starter inside next to Jerome Baker, who was recently signed to a lucrative extension, but the team has also said McKinney will play multiple roles in the defense, so there could still be snaps inside for Roberts if he has a smooth recovery in training camp.

  Dolphins | Jerome Baker agrees to extension    Sun Jun 13, 02:48 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Jerome Baker agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with the Dolphins Sunday, June 13, worth $39 million. The deal includes $28.4 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: This is a very optimistic contract for an offball linebacker, but he is only 24 and came alive as a pass rusher last year with seven sacks. He'll continue to be a frontline starter at linebacker in IDP leagues.

  Football Team | Washington swaps out a pair of LBs    Wed May 19, 03:52 PM

Free-agent LB Joseph Walker (49ers) signed an undisclosed contract with the Washington Football Team on Wednesday, May 19. LB Josh Harvey-Clemons was released to make room for him on the roster.

Footballguys view: Harvey-Clemons opted out of 2020 and the new staff isn't familiar with him. The best part of his game is his coverage chops. Washington GM Martin Mayhew is familiar with Walker from his time as VP of Player Personnel for the 49ers last year. Walker was the Eagles seventh round pick in 2015. The Football Team doesn't have much experienced depth at linebacker, so Walker has a chance to make the team.
