Free agent DT Kendall Langford is visiting the Lions Monday.
On the same day the Lions announced they won't use the franchise tag on Ndamukong Suh, they bring in Langford. Note that Nick Fairley is also a free agent. The 29-year-old Langford was released by the Rams last week, a move that saved them $6M in cap space. He had fallen behind stud Aaron Donald on the depth chart. Mar 2 - 11:57 AM

ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports the "door is open" for free agent Kendall Langford to return to the Rams at a reduced salary, but that he'll "seek a starting job first."

Langford was set to make $6 million, far too steep for the Rams after rookie sensation Aaron Donald took Langford's starting job last season. Langford has experience in both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes. He shouldn't hurt for suitors, but a starting job isn't a guarantee.

Rams released DT Kendall Langford.

The move clears $6 million in cap space. Signed to a four-year, $24 million deal in March 2012, Langford was a 16-game starter in 2012 and 2013, but was benched in favor of Aaron Donald last season. He played just 494 snaps, managing one sack. Still only 29, Langford has experience at defensive end. That versatility and relative youth should earn him some guaranteed money on the open market.
Feb 26 - 4:04 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams are "making calls" about trading for Rams DT Kendall Langford.

Langford, 28, has been replaced in the starting lineup in St. Louis by first-round rookie Aaron Donald. He's never missed a game through seven seasons and is coming off a career-best 2013 that saw Langford rack up 49 tackles and five sacks. He has just eight tackles through six games this season.

Rams DT Kendall Langford was briefly forced from St. Louis' Week 3 visit to Chicago with a left shoulder injury.

Langford went down midway through the second half, but returned near the end of the fourth quarter. Although he's seen heavy snaps, Langford has just one tackle through St. Louis' first three games.

A defensive end in Miami's 3-4, Kendall Langford will transition to a three-technique tackle with the Rams.

"I don’t think it will be hard at all," he said. "We played a little over and under [in Miami]. I played some three-technique, so I think I’ll excel at it." Langford, 26, is viewed as an "ascending player" and received interest from several teams before signing in St. Louis. He will need to master leverage on the interior, because smaller guard and centers won't struggle to get underneath the 6-foot-6 Langford's pads if he comes out of his stance high.

Rams signed DL Kendall Langford, formerly of the Dolphins, to a four-year, $24 million contract.

The deal includes $12 million guaranteed. Unsurprisingly, the Rams were able to outbid the penny-pinching Bengals. It's an extremely-nice haul for a player who took a small step back during the final year of his rookie deal last season, but solid signing for a team that let itself get long in the tooth along its defensive line the past few seasons. However, Langford will be forced to switch to a 4-3 defense after playing in a 3-4 in South Beach. Somewhat of a hybrid lineman, Langford has excelled as both a pass rusher and run stuffer during his career. His signing likely takes the Rams out of the running for free agent DL Jason Jones.

The Packers have joined the list of teams interested in free agent DL Kendall Langford.

Langford's agent says the Packers have "inquired" about the free agent, but no visit is scheduled yet. It would do against GM Ted Thompson's grain to engage in a bidding war. Langford has a tentative visit scheduled with the Rams, but only if he gets out of the Queen City after being wined and dined by the Bengals.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 04:26:00 PM

Free agent DL Kendall Langford will reportedly meet with the Rams after his Thursday visit in Cincinnati.

The Rams appear determined to land a defensive tackle to replace Fred Robbins. Langford is a fallback option in case free agent Jason Jones lands in Seattle or back in Nashville.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 02:30:00 PM

Free agent DL Kendall Langford will reportedly visit the Bengals on Thursday.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Langford "might" set up a visit with the Patriots, and the Falcons are also interested. Langford's preference is to stay in Miami, as long as the Dolphins pay him at market value.
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 10:55:00 AM

DL Kendall Langford has reportedly re-emerged as the Dolphins' top priority among their own free agents.

The Dolphins have recently jump-started discussions with Langford after putting their own free agents on hold to free up money for a Peyton Manning pursuit. Langford is expected to draw interest from the Falcons if he reaches the open market on Tuesday.
Tue, Mar 13, 2012 12:11:00 AM

Citing whispers in the "agent community," the Atlanta Journal-Constitution expects the Falcons to "make a play" for free agent DL Kendall Langford.

Langford would be following DC Mike Nolan to Atlanta under that scenario. It's an interesting report considering Langford was an effective 3-4 end, and the Falcons will run a 4-3 scheme even with Nolan on board. Langford would presumably move inside to the three-technique if signed.
Fri, Mar 9, 2012 10:34:00 AM

The Palm Beach Post does not expect re-signing free agent DE Kendall Langford to be a priority for the Dolphins.

Langford took a step back in 2011, notching just 20 tackles and zero sacks in the final year of his rookie deal. A candidate for a long-term extension last summer, Langford might be forced to settle for a one-year deal on the open market. Despite the disappointing stats, Langford still graded out positively in Pro Football Focus' year-end rankings.
Tue, Feb 21, 2012 10:13:00 AM

The Dolphins have reportedly opened long-term contract talks with DE Kendall Langford.

Langford is slated to earn $1.4 million in the final year of his rookie deal. A key piece in Miami's sixth-ranked defense last season, Langford graded out as a top-five all-around 3-4 defensive end, according to Pro Football Focus.
Wed, Aug 3, 2011 01:44:00 PM

Coach Tony Sparano and the Dolphins are expecting bigger things pass-rush-wise from DE Kendall Langford this season.

Sparano says of Langford, "Now what I am hoping for is that he is able to help us with the pass-rush thing." He plans on upping his total of two sacks last season a bit. Still, the number one job for Langford is to take on blockers and free up the Fins' linebackers.
