  Colts | Indy places four on PUP list    Sun Jul 24, 10:51 AM

The Indianapolis Colts placed LB Darius Leonard (back), DE Tyquan Lewis (knee), S Rodney McLeod (undisclosed) and WR Mike Strachan (undisclosed) on the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, July 24.

Footballguys view: Leonard has a problem ankle that the team hopes to see improvement in, as the back surgery in June was to fix a nerve issue that was affecting his ankle. Leonard is by far the most important player in the team's defense. McLeod is the veteran option at safety with third-round pick Nick Cross the young talent that will push for the starting job. If McLeod has trouble getting back on the field, Cross becomes a strong IDP sleeper.

Footballguys view: Hill and Taylor are both talented backup running backs. We'll see them battle to be the no.3 back behind Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon when they're healthy. We appreciate both in deep dynasty formats.

  Ravens | Baltimore puts six on PUP to begin camp    Fri Jul 22, 04:55 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle), LB Tyus Bowser (Achilles), CB Marcus Peters (knee), RBs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee) and S Ar'Darius Washington (foot0 were placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Dobbins and Edwards are coming back from the knee injuries that cost them the entire 2021 season. Both should be ready for the start of the regular season, but neither should get much work in training camp or the preseason. The Ravens signed veteran free agent Mike Davis to carry the load in the summer, and Davis could be the starter in Week 1 if they want to ease Dobbins into action.

  Saints | Zack Baun needs to step up    Mon Jul 11, 11:20 AM

New Orleans Saints LB Zack Baun needs to earn a bigger role on defense or a major special team role to make the team.

Footballguys view: Baun was a strong edge rusher at Wisconsin, but the Saints took him in the third round in 2020 and immediately started developing him as an inside linebacker. The fit hasn't been great, and the team has taken off ball linebackers in each of the last two drafts, including Pete Werner in the second round last year. Baun could be a reclamation project as a rotational pass rusher elsewhere if the Saints decide to move on.

  Broncos | Randy Gregory's status unclear    Sun Jul 10, 04:46 PM

The Denver Broncos have been 'evasive' when asked for a timetable for LB Randy Gregory's (shoulder) return from offseason shoulder surgery, per Nick Kosmider of The Athletic. 'Head coach Nathaniel Hackett has been evasive when asked about a timeline for Gregory's return,' Kosmider writes.

Footballguys view: Gregory is an important impact addition for a team that also needs Bradley Chubb to stay healthy to boost the edge rush. Gregory had surgery after his signing in March, so it's possible the he could miss some or all of camp, and it's not a sure thing that he'll be ready for Week 1 at Seattle.

  Saints | Demario Davis agrees to extension    Fri Jun 24, 01:41 PM

New Orleans Saints LB Demario Davis agreed to an updated contract and a one-year extension, according to a source on Friday, June 24. Davis' updated deal includes $2 million in yearly incentives from 2022-24, no cap impact in 2022, and his 2023 base salary drops from $8.5 million to $8.25 million (with $1 million guaranteed) but now has a $250,000 workout bonus. In 2024, Davis can make up to $14 million via a $10 million base salary, a $2 million roster bonus, and another $2 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Davis is the quarterback of the defense and not going anywhere any time soon. His dead cap number for 2023 (13+ million) ensures that he'll stay on the roster, but now terms for his 2024 compensation have been set.

  Cowboys | Micah Parsons eyeing sack record    Fri Jun 24, 10:33 AM

Dallas Cowboys LB Micah Parsons said his goal is to get 23 sacks this season to break the single-season record.

Footballguys view: It might be tough for him to do that with the Cowboys losing Randy Gregory in free agency, but if Dante Fowler can regain his form under his former coach Dan Quinn, the Cowboys and Parsons will both benefit. Parsons remains an elite IDP option at linebacker heading into this season.
