  • Nick Vigil: Let go by New York

    The Jets released Vigil on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Vigil signed with the Jets on Aug. 9 and competed for a depth linebacker role. He played in just four games for the Cardinals last season before being placed on injured reserve in October for a hamstring injury. The 2016 third-round pick registered 10 tackles (six solo) in three preseason games. He should provide a veteran presence for a team in need once he clears waivers.

  • Cardinals' Nick Vigil: Out against Philadelphia

    Vigil (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 5's matchup against the Eagles, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Vigil suffered a hamstring injury during Week 4's contest against the Panthers. The 2016 third-round pick was unable to practice all this week, so it's no surprise he's sitting Sunday's game out.

  • Vikings' Nick Vigil: Signs in Minnesota

    Vigil signed a one-year deal worth over $1 million guaranteed, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Vigil is joining his third NFL franchise in six seasons. He was a member of the Chargers for one year in 2020, but he saw a significant downturn in role and production. He'll now look to regain some of his value as a depth linebacker with Minnesota before hitting the free-agent market again after the 2021 campaign.

  • Chargers' Nick Vigil: Notches first sack

    Vigil had nine tackles (six solo) and a sack during Thursday's 30-27 overtime win over the Raiders. Vigil got off to a slow start this season, but he now has 32 total tackles over his last four games. The 27-year-old doesn't possess much upside as a pass rusher, as he's never had more than one sack in a single season, but his recent usage as a run stopper has provided a fair floor in IDP formats.

  • Bengals' Nick Vigil: Stellar in loss

    Vigil racked up 13 tackles (10 solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Ravens.

The 26-year-old recorded double-digit tackles for the third consecutive game, moving his season total to 51 in six games. Playing 91 percent of his team's defensive snaps during Week 6, Vigil will draw a solid matchup with a stagnant Jaguars offense in Week 7.
