by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/28/2016) Boston will likely have a starting job, the Panthers' official site reports.

With Roman Harper departing in free agency, Boston is the projected starter alongside Kurt Coleman, who makes for the superior IDP option. A 2014 fourth-round selection, Boston does have six career starts to his name, with two of his three interceptions coming in the playoffs.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/27/2016) Skuta was arrested and charged with first-degree misdemeanor battery earlier this month, reports.

Skuta's arrest reportedly occurred in Orlando on June 19, and the Jaguars are aware of the situation but gathering more information at the moment.

Redskins' Perry Riley: May need to fight for job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/26/2016) Even if he is healthy, Riley (foot) won't necessarily work with the first-team defense at the start of training camp, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Riley missed the final six games of last season, opening up a starting spot for Mason Foster alongside Will Compton. The Redskins went with that same duo during the offseason program, with Riley unavailable while rehabbing from November surgery. Riley is expected to be healthy for the start of camp, but while previously reports suggested he'd likely slot in as a starter, it now seems he'll have to compete with Compton and/or Foster. Entering the final season of a three-year, $12 million deal, Riley may find his roster spot in jeopardy if he doesn't win a starting job, as the Redskins can save approximately $4 million by releasing him.

Chargers' Darius Philon: Poised for an increased role in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/26/2016) Philon operated as San Diego's starting defensive end while Joey Bosa sat out offseason activities over a contract dispute, per

The Chargers' sixth-round selection in 2015, Philon had been granted draft eligibility as an underclassmen, entering the league as a redshirt sophomore. He was appropriately deemed a very raw prospect, but after just one campaign in the pros, Philon has seemed to have worked himself into San Diego's rotation on the defensive line. Even with the addition of first-rounder Joey Bosa, Philon appears set to see an uptick in snaps during the upcoming 2016 season.

Saints' Kyle Wilson: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/26/2016) The Saints have placed Wilson (undisclosed) on IR, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

In his first season with the Saints, Wilson recorded 27 tackles and a pick in 15 games (including four starts) in 2015. While the 2010 first-rounder isn't much of an IPD factor, his injury does represent a hit to the Saints' depth at cornerback. Replacing Wilson on the team's active roster will be defensive tackle C.J. Wilson, who signed with New Orleans on Friday.

Curtis Lofton: Underwent offseason surgeries
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/23/2016) Lofton, currently an unrestricted free agent, said Thursday he underwent offseason ankle and knee surgeries, Alex Marvez of reports.

Despite an offseason filled with recovering from surgeries, Lofton is not ready to hang up his cleats as the 30-year-old hopes to sign with a team prior to training camp with the intention of playing throughout the 2016 season. He tallied 64 tackles and one sack in nine starts with the Raiders during his 2015 campaign, proving he can still add value to a linebacker corps.

Packers' Sam Barrington: Hasn't been medically cleared
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/21/2016) Barrington (ankle) has yet to receive medical clearance, the Packers' official site reports.

With the help of seven starts in 14 appearances during the 2014 campaign, Barrington posted 53 tackles (40 solo) and one sack. He held stature as a starter next to Clay Matthews in Week 1 last season, but Barrington sustained a season-ending ankle injury 15 snaps into 2014, which held him out of the majority of on-field work during the offseason program. Once cleared, Barrington is expected to compete with the likes of rookie Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan at inside linebacker, with both spots up for grabs as Matthews returns to his long-time spot on the outside.

Broncos' Von Miller: Claims he won't play under franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/20/2016) Miller has proclaimed that he will not play the 2016 under the franchise tag, FOX31 Denver reports.

This social media proclamation comes right after Miller claimed that he could not see himself playing for another team or sitting out the 2016 season. While this might seem like an about-face, Miller is simply reducing options, leaving - surprise, surprise - a long-term deal as the lone remaining choice. Miller wants a long-term deal and he wants to get paid upfront. Any public comments between now and the July 15 deadline for franchise-tag players will likely come down to that very point.

Lions' Alex Carter: Seeing some first team reps
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/20/2016) Carter (ankle) has practiced as a slot corner with the starting defense in offseason workouts, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Carter missed all of his rookie season with an ankle injury, but is getting back into the flow of things this offseason. He was originally placed on the injured reserve/designated to return, but the injury lingered and he couldn't recover in time. Now that he's back to full strength, the 2015 third-round pick has been rotating between the first and second team defense and spent time at both outside and slot corner back. In training camp, he'll be competing with Darrin Walls, Quandre Diggs, and Crezdon Butler for reps in the slot and behind starters Darius Slay and Nevin Lawson.
