Clowney, in contention to be drafted first overall by the Houston
Texans in the 2014 NFL Draft, has a mix of size and explosiveness to
draw comparisons to elite pass rushers past and present.
Detroit Lions cornerback
Rashean Mathis re-signed with the team
Monday, agreeing to a one-year deal.
Mathis joined the Lions last season and became a valuable mentor to
Detroit's young defensive backs. He started 13 games, led the team
with 15 pass breakups in 2013.
San Francisco 49ers cornerback
Chris Culliver pleaded not guilty to
misdemeanor hit-and-run charges and felony possession of brass
Culliver was arrested March 28 after he allegedly struck a bicyclist
and then hit a witness' vehicle that was blocking him from leaving
until officers arrived, according to San Jose police.
The Cleveland Browns signed fullback
Chris Pressley to a one-year
deal. Pressley formerly started for the Cincinnati Bengals. At
5-foot-10 and 249 pounds, he is considered a strong lead blocker.
Pressley, a six-year pro out of the University of Wisconsin, tore an
ACL during the 2012 season and missed all of last year while
recovering from the injury.

The San Diego Chargers waived linebacker Terrell Manning. Manning
was claimed off waivers from the Green Bay Packers in 2013, but he
played in just one game for the Chargers last season.
