The Panthers were short a big-name guard on Monday, and added one to the roster later.

Chicago found its super athletic linebacker in Roquan Smith, a first-round pick out of Georgia who ran a 4.51-second 40-yard dash at the combine. While linebacker may not be a valued position in today’s NFL, an athletic linebacker like Smith will go a long way in a division like the NFC North.
I’m not worried about the contract yet man, Dunlap said, via Scott Eisberg of WCIV. You just go out here and you play football. The film that I put out there already speaks for itself, I feel like I’ve already earned the respect of my peers. I’ve been fortunate enough to be an All-Star, being in the Pro Bowl.

The Bengals hold their mandatory minicamp next week and then have several weeks off before training camp. We’ll see if the team and Dunlap use that time to come together on an extension.
