DE - MIA
Week 7 Outlook
Adam Schefter on Twitter is reporting that Rosenhaus Sports told ESPN that Emmanuel Ogbah signed a 2-year deal with the Miami Dolphins worth $15M with $7.5M fully guaranteed.
Ogbah had 32 combined tackles and 5.5 sacks last season for the Chiefs. The Dolphins ranked 27th versus the run last year and Ogbah will help shore up the run defense. The Dolphins are splurging on defense this off-season in free agency as they have already signed Shaq Lawson, Bryon Jones, and Kyle Van Noy.
The Browns and Chiefs struck a deal Monday afternoon that sends pass-rusher Emmanuel Ogbah to Kansas City in exchange for safety Eric Murray.
Ogbah will help fill the void created by the recent release of Justin Houston and trade of Dee Ford to the 49ers. The Browns no longer had a need for Ogbah with the acquisition of Olivier Vernon in early March. The newest Chief has 12.5 career sacks in three seasons. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
With the 32nd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected former Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah.
It is a solid fit, as the Browns could stand to add some juice to their pass rush. Ogbah is an explosive talent but has a reputation for not playing hard on every snap. He has little competition in front of him, so expect him to see the field early and often for the Browns.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys are attempting to trade up to the 32nd overall selection currently owned by the Cleveland Browns. Rapaport added that the Cowboys will likely target a pass rusher at that spot.
The Dallas Cowboys will likely target a pass rusher if they acquire the 32nd overall pick from the Browns. With a number of high-profile prospects still available, the Cowboys could select a plug and play starter for the upcoming season. Pass rusher is a need on a defense that struggled to sack the quarterback in 2015 and that is already down two starters in the wake of the suspensions of Randy Gregory and Demarcus Lawrence. Myles Jack, Noah Spence and Emmanuel Ogbah are potential targets in the second round.
According to NFL Network reporter Rand Getlin, former Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah had a private meeting with the Arizona Cardinals.
Ogbah makes a ton of sense for the pass rush-needy Cardinals, but it seems doubtful he lasts until the 29th overall pick. If the Cardinals want him, they will likely have to trade up into the top 15 or 20 picks.
