- The Saints are expected to release linebacker Jonathan Vilma, opening up another spot on the Saints linebacker corps in addition to Will Smith. This creates a big opportunity for training camp standout Kevin Reddick to make a name for himself at middle linebacker.
- Cowboys lineman DeMarcus Ware will have elbow surgery, making this the second straight off-season he’ll have a procedure done. Ware will be 32 when the season starts and it’s fair to wonder how much longer he’ll be effective. Currently, the Cowboys don’t have a lot behind Ware on the depth chart.
- In other Cowboys news, linebacker Kyle Wilber could compete for a starting job in 2014 after starting 2013 at defensive end. Wilber is under team control through 2015 on a team friendly contract. With a cap-strapped team like Dallas, young and cheap talent is always welcome.
- Giants defensive lineman Damontre Moore should be ready to go after shoulder surgery. The Giants aren’t expected to re-sign Justin Tuck, allowing Moore to step in the starting role.
