Defensive striker Henry Melton becomes the newest member of the Denver Broncos.
Melton, who was once selected to the Pro Bowl, played in 16 games (1 starts) for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and completed two sacks last season. The 29-year-old player will become a valued member of the Broncos defensive lines, after the team’s defensive tackle Vance Walker has been placed on the injured reserve.
The Broncos got more good news before completing Melton’s signing. DeMarcus Ware will soon return to training. Defensive end Derek Wolfe looks do not hurt but previously considered likely to encounter serious knee injury.
Melton has made 22.5 sacks in the previous six seasons.
Miami Dolphins signed former Houston Texans star running back Arian Foster at the end of last month, but due to Foster’s Achilles tendon injury has not healed, Dolphins has been slow down the pace of his return. From the current situation, Foster seems to have been ready. Dolphins coach Adam Gase in an interview with reporters said that Forster is expected to attend the second week of the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.
The coaching staff praises Foster since he joined the new team, Adam Gase respect Foster can directly participate in the first team training shortly after his accession. Although the Dolphins have high hopes for the second-year running back Jay Ajayi, apparently Gase more trust veteran Foster’s experience and ability.
In the first week of the preseason game against the New York Giants, Ajayi rushed the ball only twice to get six yards, which far less than the other two running back Isaiah Pead and Daniel Thomas’ contribution of 90 yards.
Although Foster’s debut time must not be too long, at least we can see his competitive state and injury situation from his limited running.
Back in March, Kellen Winslow Jr.,33-year-old, told Fox Sports reporter that he might return.
This week, he told reporters that he did find a team, which is the Green Bay Packers, to discuss the further.
Packers have just completed the former Los Angeles Rams tight end Jared Cook’s signing, but he missed the training camp because of a foot injury, what’s worse, Richard Rodgers is the only one leave on the tight end reserve.
Winslow was the draft of Cleveland Browns in 2004, but didn’t attend any games due to the injuries, and in 2007, he completed 82 catches for 1106 yards. After that, he has been playing for Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, and New York jets at different times.
After the 2013 season, he never appeared on any team’s roster, this summer he would lose weight to complete the comeback.
