Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hovan, who had 33 tackles for the Bucs last season, adds another veteran presence to the middle of the Rams' defense, but he doesn't get to the QB enough these days to be much of an IDP.
After being unable to find a trade partner, the Buccaneers will release Hovan on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Chris Hovan.

2010

Hovan will provide depth for the Rams along the interior of their defensive line and could possibly win a starting spot with a solid camp.

2009

Hovan led all Buccaneers defensive linemen with 36 solo tackles (43 total) in 2008, but only had one sack. Earlier in his career he was more of a pass rusher but has now developed into a solid run-stuffer. Hovan does not really have any value in IDP leagues, but his health is key to the team's overall defensive value and he can help bolster the values of the Buccaneers' linebackers by occupying blockers.

2008

Likely starter at nose tackle. 2 sacks, 31 solo tackles in 2007.

2007

Two sacks, 51 tackles in 16 games at nose tackle in 2006. However, he was not as adept in stuffing the run as he was the previous season, and he'll face competition in camp.

2006

Arguably the MVP of the NFL's best defense in 2005, as Hovan moved to nose guard and became perhaps the league's best defender against the rush. No sacks in 2005, but 35 tackles, 10 assists and two fumble recoveries.

2005

The Bucs are hoping that the addition of Hovan, as well as a healthy Anthony McFarland, will help shore up their run defense this season.

2003

Hovan anchors the Minnesota defensive line. The Vikings are hoping to free him up for more sacks with rookie Kevin Williams taking pressure off him as his inside tackle partner.
