Chiefs' Alex Okafor: Signs with Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Okafor was limited in practice to begin the week due to a hyperextension in his knee, and now appears to have fully recovered. Barring any setbacks, expect the 27-year-old defensive end to draw his usual start during Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Eagles.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Okafor is nursing a light hyper-extension 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 towards drawing his usual start in New Orleans' defensive line.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Dealing with light hyper-extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor is dealing with a hyper-extension, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The specifics of the injury haven't been released but Okafor re-assured 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.
