      Griffen has exercised the right to opt out of his current contract, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.

      Analysis: Griffen met multiple performance thresholds in 2019 that opened the door for him to opt out, and a source ultimately told ESPN that the veteran lineman intends to do so. While the 32-year-old was a key piece of the defense last year with 41 combined tackles and eight sacks through 15 games, he would have represented a potential $12.9 million cap hit for 2020, which could have resulted in him being a cap casualty given Minnesota's financial situation (they were projected to be over the cap in double digits).

      Landry ultimately changed his mind and decided to undergo hip surgery Feb. 4, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

      Analysis: Landry was planning to forego the surgery as recently as the Super Bowl according to Cabot, but eventually changed his mind and decided on the procedure that comes with a 6-to-8-month recovery timetable. This leaves the door open for availability at the start of training camp in late July, though the organization and new head coach Kevin Stefanski are optimistic Landry might be available on a limited basis this spring. After a procedure that was considered successful, all signs point to a full recovery.

      Dunn agreed to a three-year, $12 million extension with the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Analysis: Dunn has been a reliable rotational piece and has played in 46 of 48 games for Houston over the last three years. The 27-year-old totaled 25 tackles and had his first career sack in 2019.

      Niemann amassed 56 tackles (35 solo) and one pass breakup while appearing in all 16 of the Chiefs' regular-season games in 2019.

      Analysis: While many teams are utilizing linebacker-heavy packages less often these days in the pass-driven NFL, Niemann logged north of 400 defensive snaps thanks in part to starter Anthony Hitchens missing a pair of games in the middle of the season. Niemann should serve in a similar reserve role in 2020, but he could see his playing time increase if one or more starting linebackers misses time.

      Sorensen finished the 2019 regular season with 57 tackles (44 solo) and two interceptions over 16 games.

      Analysis: Sorense held a starting job the previous two seasons, but he saw his playing time drop off in 2019 with the Chiefs adding Tyrann Mathieu in free agency and investing a second-round pick into Juan Thornhill. The rookie secured the starting job in training camp, leaving Sorensen to handle a role as a third safety. Thornhill suffered a torn ACL late in the season that allowed Sorensen to recapture a starting gig in the playoffs, so the 29-year-old could open the 2020 campaign atop the depth chart if Thornhill hasn't fully recovered from surgery by Week 1.
