  • Bears' Angelo Blackson: Notches sack in finale

    Blackson tallied a sack and a tackle in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 43 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

    In his first year with the Bears, who were the fourth team he's played on in his seven-year career, Blackson went from posting about 20 tackles per year to going over the 40 mark as he rotated with Akiem Hicks. He's signed through 2022 with a void year in 2023, and if Hicks leaves in free agency, Blackson could elevate to the No. 1 role, which will boost his IDP potential.

  • Cardinals' Angelo Blackson: Signs with Cardinals

    Blackson agreed to a contract with Arizona on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Blackson could earn a depth role to begin the season behind Corey Peters and Zach Allen, but he'll certainly push for snaps to begin Week 1 of the regular season at the least.

  • Texans' Angelo Blackson: Restructures deal in Houston

  • Texans' Angelo Blackson: First full season as starter

He's a known quantity to new defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver, which should put Blackson in position to compete for a starting job along the line in 2020. At 6-foot-4 and 319 pounds, the 27-year-old could slide over to nose tackle if the Texans don't bring back D.J. Reader.
