Slay's new deal with the Lions also includes $23 million fully guaranteed at signing, as he remains the team's top cornerback. The 25-year-old amassed 59 tackles, 13 passes defensed, and two interceptions in 16 games during the 2015 season, his third year in the league.
Scandrick is in line to participate throughout training camp as he returns from a torn ACL, while it appears realistic he could be at 100% health by Week 1 of the regular season. The Cowboys' cornerback corps also includes Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr, with Scandrick slated to fill in as the No. 3 option.
Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list earlier in the week due to an undisclosed issue, but he's already been cleared to return to the field. At this point there appears to be little concern regarding the starting middle linebacker's status moving forward.
Jordan, who was suspended for the entirety of the 2015 NFL season due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, will be given a chance to make the Dolphins' roster in training camp as his suspension has officially been lifted. The team's defensive line, which already includes Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake, and Mario Williams, could receive another boost if Jordan is able to perform well in camp and secure a spot. He comes at a bit of a price for Miami, as he's due $1.7 million in bonus money if he's still with the team on just the fifth day of training camp.
Clemons is retiring after signing a one-year deal with the Seahawks in the spring. The 34-year-old defensive end only recorded 14 combined tackles in 16 games for the Jaguars in 2015, but enjoyed a long and prosperous NFL career, racking up 69 sacks in his 12 seasons. He had arguably the most productive stint in his career in Seattle, where he racked up 38 sacks in four seasons from 2010 to 2013.
Lotulelei's hamstring tightness doesn't appear to be anything too serious and shouldn't impact him too much going forward. He was able to partake in individual drills and position drills prior to sitting out when full team drills began. Entering his fourth season, Lotulelei will again be the Panthers' starting defensive tackle and look to improve on his one sack, 22 tackle performance last year.
A tough son of a gun, Church brushed off a high ankle sprain for the last two months of the season, but a broken arm in Week 16 was too much to overcome in his quest for a third consecutive complete campaign. Despite the sprain and missing one game, the strong safety totaled 117 tackles (78 solo), which ranked third among defensive backs behind the Dolphins' Reshad Jones and the Bills' Corey Graham. Entering his age-28 season, Church is still within the window to produce elite numbers, and reaching triple digits in tackles would mark his third such occasion in four years.
Playing opposite Oliver Vernon, Pierre-Paul is unlikely to be doubled very often, and if he's his old self, he could wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks.
After undergoing offseason wrist surgery, Revis subsequently missed the entirety of the Jets' offseason program with the expectation to return in time for training camp. No setbacks in his rehabilitation have been reported, though, so the Jets are likely just being cautious with their veteran cornerback during the commencement of training camp.
Per the report, his absence was an expected one and is not thought to be related to any sort of issues with his contract. It's possible that Collins, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal, may be dealing with a minor issue, but the fact that he didn't open training camp on the Patriots' preseason PUP list hints at a return sooner rather than later.
