NFL Around the League: Drafting a Defensive Dynasty

Ben Roethlisberger said he's utilized "a lot of cardio" in recent months to drop weight.

Roethlisberger reportedly has lost 10-15 pounds as a result of the new cardio workouts. The Steelers will head into 2016 with high expectations for the offense, and rightfully so, with Big Ben, Antonio, Bell, Wheaton, and newly acquired TE Ladarius Green.

Eric Berry was absent from Chiefs' voluntary practice on Tuesday.

This news comes as no surprise, since Berry has not yet signed the franchise tenders. The two parties will have until July 15th to negotiate a contract extension before being only allowed to sign a one year deal. Missing OTA's however should not hamper Berry's ability to be on the field come game time, as he missed last years and still went on to play in all 16 games.

Dolphins sign third-round pick Leonte Carroo to his rookie deal.

With the onset of slotted salaries for draft picks in the last CBA, it makes it far easier to sign draft picks and at a much more controlled salary level. Carroo was seen as a good pick by the Dolphins, especially in the third round, as he should great playmaking ability while at Rutgers to go with steady hands. Miami has been looking to improve it's big play ability and with Carroo now officially in the fold, they should have a pretty good start.

Ronald Leary has requested a trade from Cowboys.

Leary signed a second tender offer from the Cowboys back at the end of April in order to make him more appealing to teams that were interested in trading for him. Leary is a very solid guard who started 31 games for the Cowboys between 2013-2014 but is now behind La'El Collins on the depth chart after starting just four games a season ago. He is still young, 26, and has experience so there should be interest for him but Dallas will want something of value back before they give up a controllable piece like Leary.
