Bengals' Kasim Edebali: Joins Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals signed Edebali to the active roster Tuesday.

Edebali was released by the Bears on Sept. 2 after he suffered a leg injury in the preseason finale. He'll provide depth to the Bengals' defense, though most of his action will likely come on special teams. The fifth-year linebacker has 55 tackles and eight sacks in his career.

Kasim Edebali: Released by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali (leg) was released by the Bears on Saturday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

Edebali's chance of making the Bears' 53-man roster was lessened by a leg injury sustained in the preseason finale, when the linebacker was ultimately carted to the locker room. He's primarily been a special teamer during his four years in the league, so his release shouldn't have much of an impact on Chicago's defense.

Bears' Kasim Edebali: Suffers leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali exited Thursday's preseason game against the Bills with a leg injury.

The severity of the injury remains unclear, but Edebali was listed doubtful to return and was carted to the locker room, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The 29-year-old signed with Chicago in June after bouncing between four teams in 2017.

Bears' Kasim Edebali: Signs with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali signed a contract with the Bears on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Edebali spent time with four teams last season, ultimately suiting up for the Lions and Broncos in a combined 13 games, but he recorded just a single tackle. He'll figure to be a depth linebacker and special teams player while with the Bears.

Saints' Kasim Edebali: Rejoins Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali was claimed off waivers by the Saints on Thursday, The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Edebali has spent time with the Broncos, Lions and Rams this season, but also spent 2014-16 with the Saints. The 28-year-old takes the roster spot of Hau'oli Kikaha (ankle) and should serve as a depth option in the defensive line rotation.

Kasim Edebali: Gets cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams waived Edebali on Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

It's the third time this season the defensive end will be sent packing after the Broncos and Lions previously cut him. Edebali didn't appear in any games during his brief time with Los Angeles.

Rams' Kasim Edebali: Signs with LA Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams signed Edebali to a contract Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Edebali has spent time with the Broncos and Lions in 2017, but totaled just one tackle in 13 game appearances. He'll likely function in a special-teams role with the Rams.

Kasim Edebali: Waived by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali was waived by the Lions on Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Edebali joined the Lions in mid-November after being claimed off waivers from the Broncos, appearing in four games for Detroit. He'll try to find a new home for the final three weeks of the NFL regular season.

Lions' Kasim Edebali: Claimed by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali was claimed off waivers by the Lions on Tuesday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Edebali was waived by the Broncos on Tuesday and didn't need to wait long before finding a new home. The 28-year-old primarily played on special teams in Denver and could fill a similar role for the Lions.

Kasim Edebali: Released by Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos released Edebali on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

The 28-year-old linebacker played primarily on special teams in his nine games with the Broncos, recording one tackle. Edebali largely became expendable after the Broncos reinstated Shane Ray from injured reserve three games ago, however, which evidently convinced Denver that his roster spot could be put to better use.

Broncos' Kasim Edebali: Could be in line for Week 1 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali is the next man up for a Broncos front that will miss Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett through training camp, Andrew Mason of DenverBroncos.com reports.

Edebali was initially signed to help out on special teams and provide depth behind Ray and Von Miller on the edge. Now, with Ray and Barrett both on timetables that might lead to a missed game or two, Edebali is thrust into a starting role. Don't be surprised if he produces -- the Boston College product is just a season removed from a five-sack campaign playing in a reserve role for the Saints.

Broncos' Kasim Edebali: To receive added offseason exposure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali is among those expected to step up with edge rusher Shaq Barrett slated to miss much of the remaining offseason, Mike Klis of KUSA 9News reports.

Edebali, a free-agent pickup from New Orleans, was supposed to battle it out with 2016 undrafted free agent Vontarrius Dora for the fourth outside linebacker slot left by the retirement of DeMarcus Ware and departure of Dekoda Watson. With Barrett now likely to miss much of the remaining offseason, both figure to get increased reps at practice. Of the two, Edebali is the more experienced pass rusher, just a year removed from a five-sack 2015 campaign. The Broncos' defense might better suit Edebali than the Saints' attack, in which Edebali served as an undersized down lineman.

Broncos' Kasim Edebali: Signs one-year deal with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali signed a one-year contract with the Broncos on Monday.

Edebali hasn't missed a game since coming into the league three years ago and racked up 54 tackles, eight sacks, three passes defensed, and one forced fumble along the way. He projects as a rotational linebacker for the Broncos behind Von Miller, Shane Ray, and Shaq Barrett.

Saints' Kasim Edebali: Two sacks in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali recorded two sacks as part of a three-tackle performance in the Saints' preseason opener against the Patriots on Thursday.

Edebali, who is in competition for the starting defensive end spot opposite Cameron Jordan, had an impressive debut with a pair of sacks on Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Edebali had five sacks playing as part of a rotation last season, so he's shown the ability to rush the passer. The competition between him and Obum Gwacham (who also had a nice preseason opener with five tackles) should continue throughout training camp, but if Edebali can secure the starting role, he could be an interesting option in deeper IDP leagues.

Saints' Kasim Edebali: Could start at defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edabali is a candidate to start at defensive end in the wake of Hau'oli Kikaha's potentially season-ending knee injury, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

As a hybrid linebacker and defensive end, Edabali appeared in all 16 games in 2015, recording 21 tackles (18 solo) and five sacks in a reserve role. The Saints had planned to move Kikaha from the strong-side linebacker position he played as a second-round drafted rookie in 2015 to the "open" edge rusher spot opposite Cam Jordan. His injury, however, means that others will need to step up. Unfortunately for Edabali, it appears that Obum Gwacham may have the initial edge in the battle to replace Kikaha along the defensive line, as Gwacham has been taking snaps with the first team defense since the start of OTAs. Meanwhile, Edabali has primarily worked with a trainer on the side during the OTA sessions open to the media this spring. Nonetheless, Edabali could be an intriguing option in deeper IDP leagues if he is able to secure significant playing time this season.
