Today’s workout updates are below. There were some notable names, including veteran quarterback Landry Jones, who was released by the Steelers at final cuts.

Cleveland Browns

Indianapolis Colts

New England Patriots

New York Jets

Looks like the Browns are searching for defensive help, working out a slew of players on that side of the ball. Jones working out for the Patriots is interesting, as he isn’t really young enough to be seen as a developmental project, and Brian Hoyer is entrenched as Tom Brady‘s backup.

Chargers Work Out DE Kony Ealy

The Chargers are looking for defensive line help. On Wednesday, the club auditioned defensive end Kony Ealy plus defensive linemen Xavier Cooper and Anthony Lanier

Ealy hooked on with the Jets last year after being cut by the Patriots and proved to be a quality addition. While he didn’t light up the stat sheet in New York, he graded out as the No. 61 edge defender in the league. This year, he tried to make the Cowboys’ roster, but he was let go on cut weekend.

Cooper, a 2015 third-round pick of the Browns, missed the Jets’ cut earlier this month. He appeared in eight games for Gang Green and five contests for the Niners last year. Lanier, meanwhile, worked out for the Texans on Tuesday but left without a deal.

It seems likely that the Chargers will sign at least one player from this trio as they look to bolster their edge rush.

Texans Audition DL Anthony Lanier

The Texans are working out free agent defensive lineman Anthony Lanier on Monday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link).

Lanier, 25, spent the 2016-17 seasons with the Redskins after entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama A&M, but was waived just before the 2018 campaign got underway. Last year, Lanier appeared in 11 games and made two starts while playing on 44% of Washington’s defensive snaps and 21% of the club’s special teams snaps. In total, Lanier racked up 11 tackles and an impressive 5.5 sacks.

Houston is in need of defensive line depth as both Jadeveon Clowney and Christian Covington are dealing with injuries. Clowney missed Sunday’s loss to the Titans with elbow and back issues, while thigh and knee questions prevented Covington from suiting up.
