  • Chiefs' Alex Okafor: Signs with Kansas City
    By RotoWire Staff

    Okafor has signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Chiefs, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports. Since the Saints eventually need to let 2018 first-rounder Marcus Davenport grow into the starting defensive end role opposite 2018 All-Pro Cameron Jordan, it made sense for Okafor to sign elsewhere. A Chiefs team -- that no longer has Dee Ford -- is a good fit. In Kansas City, Okafor should immediately step into the starting lineup and command plenty of playing time.

  • Saints' Alex Okafor: To hit open market
    By RotoWire Staff

    Despite agreeing to a two-year contract with New Orleans last offseason, Okafor is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the league year March 13, Herbie Toepe of NFL.com reports. At the time Okafor signed, he was coming back from an Achilles injury that prematurely ended his 2017 season. As part of the deal, Okafor's representatives reportedly bargained for a clause in Okafor's contract that allowed the defensive end to become an unrestricted free agent if he totaled at least three sacks in 2018. Since Okafor ultimately recorded four sacks, he was able to trigger the clause, which now sets the 28-year-old up for a potential pay raise on the open market this offseason.

  • Saints' Alex Okafor: Nursing knee injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Okafor (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Okafor is nursing a light hyperextension in his knee, putting his status for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Eagles up in the air. The 27-year-old's limited participation in practice is a positive sign, and Okafor appears to be trending toward drawing his usual start in New Orleans' defensive line.

  • Okafor is dealing with a hyperextension, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The specifics of the injury haven't been released, but Okafor reassured reporters Wednesday that the issue is nothing serious. By all accounts, Okafor is on track to resume practicing next week. He'll benefit from the Saints' first-round playoff bye.

  • Saints' Alex Okafor: Half sack in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Okafor recorded three tackles (two solo) and 0.5 sacks across 38 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bengals. Through nine games, Okafor has 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Those numbers are down from last season but it should be noted that the veteran is now competing with rookie Marcus Davenport (toe) for reps. Davenport (toe) will likely remain out for a few more weeks, which will lead to increased action for Okafor.
