    Getty New York Jets edge rusher Bryce Huff during pregame warmups on September 19, 2021. It may be hard to believe but the New York Jets now have a surplus of talent in different areas of their roster. That makes for a challenging final cut and no position will be harder to determine than the defensive line — and more specifically, edge rusher. The Jets currently run 17 deep when combining both defensive end and tackle, and it’s difficult to imagine more than nine or 10 players making it to Week 1 considering there are only four starting roles to be had (8-man rotation on game day). Because of this unique situation, many Jets fans have tossed around the idea of a player like Bryce Huff switching to linebacker — where Gang Green has much less depth. One supporter even posed the question to a member of the NYJ beat on July 8. ALL the latest Jets news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Jets newsletter here! Join Heavy on Jets!

    Getty Tashawn Bower is taking his talents to the Vikings. The Minnesota Vikings have plucked a player off of the New England Patriots‘ practice squad. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Vikings picked up outside linebacker/defensive end Tashawn Bower off of New England’s practice squad on Wednesday, November 24. Bower actually played for the Vikings from 2017 until 2019 after signing with Minnesota as an undrafted free agent. He appeared in seven games with the team during the 2017 and 2018 seasons before tearing his Achilles prior to the start of the 2019 season. The LSU product was initially signed to the Patriots’ practice squad midway through the 2019 season. Since 2020, Bower has appeared in nine games for New England, including three starts. The 6-foot-5 hybrid linebacker/defensive end played 32 snaps this season while bouncing back and forth from the practice squad and active roster. Bower recorded the second sack of his career — and first as a member of the Patriots — versus the Cleveland Browns in Week 10. ALL the latest Patriots news straight...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee starting safety Amani Hooker has been activated off injured reserve and will play Monday night against the Buffalo Bills. Hooker is just the second player to come off injured reserve for Tennessee, which still has 16 on that list with starting cornerback Kristian Fulton replacing Hooker. Fulton did not practice all week with a hamstring that knocked him out of last week’s win in Jacksonville. Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown, added to the injury report Sunday with an illness, is active and playing. Tennessee deactivated wide receiver Josh Reynolds, running back Mekhi Sargent, linebacker Monty Rice and outside linebacker John Simon. Bills starting linebacker Matt Milano is back after missing last week’s win over Kansas City with a hamstring injury. Buffalo (4-1) sat defensive end A.J. Epenesa, running back Matt Breida, offensive tackle Tommy Doyle, defensive tackle Vernon Butler and defensive end Boogie Basham. ___ More AP NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Detroit Lions running back D’Andre Swift will be available for his team’s Monday night game against the Green Bay Packers.

    The Cowboys drafted Micah Parsons to be a playmaker for their defense. Dallas didn’t expect it to be at the defensive end position.  Micah Parsons entered the NFL with the potential to be a big-time playmaker from the linebacker position. Just one week into his professional career the Cowboys are already looking for him to wreck the opposing offense from a different position. Dallas plans to give Parsons significant snaps at defensive end in their Week 2 matchup against the Chargers are losing both Demarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory. Lawrence broke his foot during practice this week and will miss multiple weeks of action while Gregory is on the COVID-19 list which rules him out for Sunday’s game against Los Angeles. The idea of moving an outside linebacker to a rush-end spot isn’t unconventional, but it’s a big mental adjustment for an inexperienced player like Parsons. He has the physical tools to wreak havoc off the edge, but his lack of polish as an edge rusher could make life difficult for him against the Chargers’ talented offensive line. The move...
    The 25 best episodes of New Girl, ranked 17 Tips To Live Comfortably Off Just a Social Security Check © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad It’s not quite Magic Johnson playing center in the 1980 NBA Finals, but another rookie will be showing off his versatility today. Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons will slide to defensive end today against the Chargers, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. The Cowboys have a clear need at the pass-rush position. DeMarcus Lawrence has a broken foot, and Randy Gregory remains on COVID reserve. They also have a surplus at linebacker. Moving Micah Parsons means more reps for Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, neither of whom played very much against the Bucs in Week One. Smith participated in 16 snaps, and Vander Esch saw only 14. Parsons played defensive end in high school before moving to linebacker at Penn State. So, basically, No. 10 for the Chargers needs to be keeping his eyes open for No. 11 for the Cowboys. Justin Herbert could be...
    Heres Everything We Know About Amazons Revival of I Know What You Did Last Summer The Best Money Experts for Each Generation © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Cornerback Marshon Lattimore underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a chipped bone in his thumb. He returned to practice Thursday. The Saints listed Lattimore as a limited participant. The three-time Pro Bowler missed one series in the second half before returning with a cast on his right wrist. He played 36 of 57 defensive snaps, with three tackles and a pass breakup. Safety P.J. Williams (back) also returned to limited work Thursday. Linebacker Kwon Alexander (elbow), defensive end Marcus Davenport (shoulder), center Erik McCoy (calf), defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon (calf) and linebacker Pete Werner (hamstring) remained out of practice a second consecutive day. Defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson (knee) and linebacker Chase Hansen (groin) missed practice a day after being limited.

    Getty Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Keith McCants was found dead on Thursday. One-time Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker/defensive end Keith McCants died at age 53 before Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigators found his body in his Florida home on Thursday. “It appears it was a drug overdose, but we are awaiting confirmation from the medical examiner’s office,” sheriff’s office spokesperson Amanda Sinni said via the Associated Press. “This is still an open investigation.” A call regarding McCants came into the sheriff’s office at about 5:10 a.m. per the Associated Press. McCants had a history of arrests for drug possession and drug paraphernalia. He played three seasons for the Bucs from 1990 to 1992 after the team took him at No. 4 in the 1990 NFL Draft from Alabama, where he was an All-American. In 1991, Bucs defensive coordinator Floyd Peters converted McCants from linebacker to defensive end though McCants wanted to stay at linebacker according to the Gadsden Times in 1992. In 47 games with the Bucs, McCants tallied 192 tackles, 12 sacks, and three fumble recoveries....

The moves were announced on Tuesday afternoon, the deadline for getting to the in-season roster maximum. To get there, the Dolphins placed tackle Larnel Coleman on injured reserve. The team also released the following vested veterans: linebacker Josh Harvey Clemons, cornerback Cre'von LeBlanc, linebacker Bernardrick McKinney, tackle Adam Pankey, center Matt Skura, and center Cameron Tom.

    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images Jamaal Anderson of the Atlanta Falcons during opening day of training camp on July 30, 2010. Analytics don’t always tell the whole story, but in the case of former Atlanta Falcons first-round pick Jamaal Anderson, they paint an ugly picture. “Few edge rushers in PFF history have been as ineffective as [Jamaal] Anderson during his time in the league, as he managed only five sacks on nearly 1,400 pass-rushing snaps in his four years with the Falcons.” That’s the main rationale behind Pro Football Focus naming Anderson as the worst draft pick of the PFF era (which dates back to 2006). “… Yes, we know sacks aren’t everything, but that ineffectiveness is backed up by the fact that he never earned a pass-rushing grade higher than 61.5 …,” adds PFF’s Michael Renner.Jamaal Anderson’s NFL Career Lasted Six SeasonsJamaal Anderson was selected No. 8 overall by the Falcons out of the University of Arkansas in 2007. The idea was that he would pair with John Abraham to provide new head coach Bobby Petrino with...
    Getty Bronson Kaufusi #92 of the Baltimore Ravens rushes against Chase Daniel #4 of the Chicago Bears in the first quarter of the Hall of Fame Game at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium on August 2, 2018 in Canton, Ohio. A hybrid pass rusher with experience at defensive lineman, outside linebacker and tight end has landed a futures deal with the Green Bay Packers. The Packers announced Friday the signing of Bronson Kaufusi, a 2016 third-round pick for the Baltimore Ravens, to a reserve/future contract for the 2021 season, becoming the fourth outside talent to lock in a place on Green Bay’s next offseason roster. The Packers had hosted him for a visit on Monday along with former Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Breeland Speaks. At 6-foot-6, 275 pounds, Kaufusi certainly comes with the stature of a defensive lineman, but his speed and athleticism have seen him favored as an outside linebacker/edge rusher throughout his fifth-year NFL career. The same tools motivated the New York Jets to convert him into a tight end for the 2020 season,...
    SANTA CLARA — On a day in which Santa Clara County effectively evicted the 49ers from hosting games or practices the next three weeks, the franchise did have some optimistic COVID-19 news to share: Left tackle Trent Williams got activated off the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list and can play in Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Rams. Linebacker Joe Walker also came off that COVID list, but four players remain on it: wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, tight end Daniel Helm and defensive linemen D.J. Jones and Jordan Willis. Defensive linemen Arik Armstead and Javon Kinlaw, plus reserve center Hroniss Grasu, got activated earlier in the week after the 49ers at one point had a season-high nine players on the COVID-19 reserve list. Meanwhile, cornerback Richard Sherman and running backs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson all got activated off Injured Reserve. Questionable are defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (came off COVID-19 reserve Friday), tight end Jordan Reed and linebackers Azeez Al-Shaair and Dre Greenlaw, the latter three having been kept out of Thursday and Friday practices because of COVID-19...
    The Chargers put defensive end Melvin Ingram III on IR. The Chargers defense will be without another key defensive figured after putting defensive end Melvin Ingram III on IR on Saturday. Ingram won’t be available for the next three weeks, with a hopeful return in Week 6. Ingram isn’t the only starter who ended up on IR on Saturday either. The Chargers also sent starting defensive tackle Justin Jones. Backup linebacker Asmar Bilal joined them. Guard Ryan Groy, linebacker Malik Jefferson and defensive end Jassie Lemonier were promoted to the active roster as a result while safety Jahleel Addae and running back Darius Bradwell were brought up from the practice squad.Melvin Ingram will miss games against the Panthers, Buccanneers and Saints.Los Angeles is coming off an overtime loss to Kansas City in their home opener. Sunday will provide the opportunity to notch their first win at SoFi Stadium against the Carolina Panthers. Of course, those hopes will be complicated by Ingram’s absence. The ninth-year veteran is coming off three-straight Pro Bowl appearances and produced eight QB pressures in the first...
    Michael Reaves/Getty Images Shaquil Barrett of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s a trend that was started—or at least accelerated—by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Matt Judon. In March, the Ravens applied the non-exclusive franchise tag to Judon, which provided for him to be paid $15.828 million this season, as per NFL rules that apply to franchise players. But with Judon set to argue that he is in fact a defensive end, the Ravens agreed to pay Judon $16.808 million this season, splitting the difference between what he would earn as a linebacker and the $17.788 million he would be paid if classified as a defensive end. Judon’s negotiating success has apparently inspired other linebackers to try the same trick. According to ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass rusher Shaquil Barrett has notified the Buccaneers that he has accepted his franchise tender, but “he has filed a grievance with the NFLPA to be tagged as a DE, not a LB…. There’s a $2 million difference between a DE and an LB.” Bucs pass rusher Shaq Barrett...
    Christian Petersen/Getty Images Wait, what? According to Ian Rapoport, National Insider for NFL Network and NFL.com, Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree has filed a grievance with the NFL, arguing that he is a defensive end, not a linebacker. #Steelers pass-rusher Bud Dupree has filed a grievance with hopes that he’ll be paid as a defensive end rather than a LB, I’m told. Similar to Shaq Barrett. While there is still some time to work something out, the sides are not close on a deal. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 10, 2020 Why is this distinction important? In a nutshell, NFL defensive ends are better compensated than linebackers. On March 16, the Steelers placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Dupree, which calls for him to be paid $15.828 million this season—as an outside linebacker. Dupree wants to be seen as a defensive end, because the franchise tag amount for a defensive end is $17.788 million, the franchise tag numbers available via the NFL’s 2020 free agency glossary. A similar argument is being made...
