IRHau'oli Kikaha LB NO (5) 15 hours ago
Kikaha (ankle) said Tuesday that he'll be available for the start of the Saints' Organized Team Activities in the spring, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. "I'm ready [for OTAs} right now," Kikaha said.
It's unclear if the Saints would verify Kikaha's claim about his health at this juncture, but it looks promising nonetheless that the defensive end will face no limitations entering the Saints' offseason program. Before hitting injured reserve prior to Week 17, Kikaha was effective in his rotational role along the defensive line, providing 10 tackles and four sacks across 12 contests.
Solomon Thomas DL SF (11) 15 hours ago
Thomas finished his rookie season with 41 tackles (34 solo) to go along with three sacks through 14 games.
While he was active for 14 contests, the 49ers elected to bring the third-overall pick along slowly in a limited role. Thomas was finally unleashed against the Cardinals in Week 4 and put together a three-game stretch which flashed his disruptive potential as a pass-rusher (16 tackles and two sacks in three starts). A knee injury slowed him down mid-season, but Thomas finished the year on a high note against the Jaguars (six tackles and his third sack) when he was once again given a full allotment of defensive snaps. The 22-year-old's lackluster totals should suppress his value heading into his sophomore campaign, but he possesses the potential to be an IDP factor as a defensive lineman if he is given the green light to be on the field for the majority of the club's defensive snaps.
Derrick Morgan LB TEN (8) 15 hours ago
Morgan contributed just one solo tackle in Saturday's 35-14, divisional round loss to New England.
Morgan finished the regular season with 7.5 sacks and picked up another one in a wild-card round win over the Chiefs, but the stout Patriots offensive line rendered the 29-year-old pass rusher useless. With 16.5 regular season sacks over the past two campaigns, Morgan projects to be an impact defender for the Titans in the final year of his contract next season.
QThomas Morstead NO (5) 15 hours ago
Morstead played through torn cartilage in his ribs during Sunday's 29-24 divisional-round loss to the Vikings, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Morstead suffered the injury in the first quarter after tackling Vikings return man Marcus Sherels. The punter was in visible pain the rest of the way, but after receiving an anesthetic, he wasn't forced to exit early and even contributed two kicks that traveled 56 and 54 yards. Though he'll be forced to spent the next 4-to-6 weeks rehabbing the injury, Morstead was fortunate to avoid any fractures to his ribs, which likely would have required a lengthier recovery timetable.
David Fluellen RB TEN (8) 16 hours ago
Fluellen didn't get a touch in Saturday's 35-14, divisional round loss to New England.
With DeMarco Murray (knee) sidelined, Fluellen was the only Tennessee running back dressed besides Derrick Henry. Henry was able to carry the load, however, leaving Fluellen on the sidelines. Fluellen has one more year left on his deal with the Titans and will hope to once again end up on the right side of the roster bubble in 2018.
K'Waun Williams DB SF (11) 16 hours ago
Williams wrapped up a career-high 54 tackles to go along with his first NFL interception in 14 games.
Williams began the year as the 49ers' nickel corner and survived a whirlwind of depth chart adjustments in the secondary to finish the year in the same role. 54 tackles won't move the needle in standard IDP leagues, but it is still a healthy mark for a cornerback. The 26-year-old should serve a similar role in 2018 after the club extended his contract through the 2020 season.
Harry Douglas WR TEN (8) 16 hours ago
Douglas didn't record a reception in Saturday's 35-14, divisional round loss to New England.
This performance was in line with expectations for Douglas, who recorded just one catch all season while serving as Tennessee's fifth wide receiver. After nine seasons between the Falcons and Titans, the 33-year-old free agent will look to latch on with a new team this offseason. There's no guarantee Douglas is even able to stay in the league, let alone contribute noteworthy numbers next season.
Ryan Succop K TEN (8) 1 day ago
Succop didn't attempt a field goal but made a pair of extra points in Saturday's 35-14, divisional round loss to New England.
Succop didn't get to show off his accurate leg in this lopsided defeat. The 31-year-old pending free agent's near-automatic performance from inside 50 yards should net him a strong salary for his position, as Succop set an NFL record this season with 56 consecutive makes on field-goal attempts under 50 yards.
Taywan Taylor WR TEN (8) 1 day ago
Taylor caught one of three targets for five yards in Saturday's 35-14, divisional round loss to the Patriots.
Taylor's unremarkable performance in his final appearance of the season was par for the course in an underwhelming rookie campaign. He lost a battle for the slot receiver job to pending free agent Eric Decker this past offseason but shouldn't have much competition for that role next year with Tennessee unlikely to invest more draft capital into the wide receiver position after selecting Corey Davis and Taylor in the first and third rounds, respectively, of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Jordan Poyer DB BUF (6) 1 day ago
Poyer posted career highs across the board in 2017, his first season in Buffalo, with 95 tackles, two sacks, 13 passes defensed, five interceptions and a fumble recovery.
Now that's some serious production the Bills (and IDP owners) received after signing Poyer as a free agent following three seasons from Cleveland. His numbers put him second among all safeties in IDP production, and with Poyer locked into a starting spot with the same defense and same coaching staff next season, he'll be a high pick when defensive players start getting selected.
