Titans RT Jack Conklin not a lock for Week 1?

23 June 2018

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt believes it's "too early to say" if RT Jack Conklin (knee) will be ready for Week 1. Conklin missed OTAs recovering from January ACL surgery. He's expected to open training camp on the active/PUP list, but there's hope he'll return before the start of the season. Conklin was one of the top pass-blocking right tackles in the league before going down in the playoffs. The Titans have a proven backup in Dennis Kelly if Conklin isn't back f ...

Report: Odell Beckham still a holdout threat

22 June 2018

SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports a "holdout is still on the table" if the Giants don't make progress in contract talks with Odell Beckham. Beckham told reporters last week he plans to attend training camp but has since backtracked his comments. The Giants are "basically nowhere" in negotiations with Beckham, having "preliminary conversations but no serious talks." This should be one of the top storylines going into training camp. Beckham can ...

Texans move CB Kareem Jackson to safety

22 June 2018

The Texans plan to move CB Kareem Jackson to safety. This has been expected with Andre Hal sidelined. 30-year-old Jackson lost a step in 2017, grading as one of the worst corners in the league. He should benefit from the move to safety full time. Jackson's presence opposite Tyrann Mathieu likely limits rookie Justin Reid to sub-packages, with Kevin Johnson starting opposite Johnathan Joseph in base sets.

22 June 2018

Free agent Tre Boston turned down an offer from the Cardinals. Boston visited Arizona last month, but they were only willing to give him the veteran minimum.

Coming off a career year, 25-year-old Boston should resurface before training camp.

Patriots signed first-round OL Isaiah Wynn to a four-year contract. As with all first-round picks, Wynn's contract includes a fifth-year team option.

22 June 2018

49ers signed OG Laken Tomlinson to a three-year extension through 2021. Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the deal carries a maximum value of $18 million with $10 million guaranteed. Without a new deal, Tomlinson's contract would have expired after this season. The 26-year-old impressed as a run-blocker last year but struggled in pass protection. He should open 2018 as the Niners' starting left guard.

Browns to ride 'hot hand' at RB this season

22 June 2018

Browns RBs coach Freddie Kitchens said the team will ride the "hot hand" in the backfield this season. "If they are having success why would you change?" Kitchens said. "All three of those guys -- Carlos Hyde, Duke Johnson, and Nick Chubb -- can run our running game." Tyrod Taylor recently praised Hyde's deceptive ability in the pass game, while Kitchens noted how "violent" Chubb is as a runner, something the offense desires at ...

QB Ryan Griffin has chance to start for Bucs?

22 June 2018

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman believes Ryan Griffin has a "major opportunity" to pass Ryan Fitzpatrick on the depth chart and start for the Bucs during Jameis Winston's three-game suspension. Griffin was impressing the coaching staff last summer but sprained his AC joint in his shoulder in the preseason opener, which handed the No. 2 job to Fitzpatrick. He returned late in the season to be Fitzpatrick's backup when Winston was hurt. Griffin, a 2013 UDFA, h ...

Schefter: Winston will be hit with 3-game ban

21 June 2018

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jameis Winston will be suspended three games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. Per Schefter, the league "still has not notified Winston of its official decision," and "the circumstances surrounding it still could lead to an increase or decrease of the three games." The ban is the result of Winston's alleged March 2016 groping of an Uber driver. He was not charged with a crime in the incident. The timing ...

21 June 2018

The Athletic's Vic Tafur reports that "as of Wednesday" Martavis Bryant had not been notified of a pending suspension. Tafur also reports that Bryant "did not fail a drug test or miss a test for that matter." The report that the Raiders were fearing a suspension was from extremely reliable beat writer Michael Gehlken. Clearly something is afoot, but no one knows what. Tafur does report he caught wind of a similar report "a couple of months ago&q ...

21 June 2018

Broncos signed first-round OLB Bradley Chubb to a four-year contract. As with all first-round picks, the deal includes a fifth-year option.

Robby Anderson given 6 months of probation

21 June 2018

Robby Anderson pled no contest to a reckless driving charge. All other charges from Anderson's January incident had been dropped, but he was still facing a misdemeanor charge.

'Nothing to indicate' Thomas gets new deal

21 June 2018

ESPN's Brady Henderson writes "there has been nothing to indicate" the Seahawks will give Earl Thomas an extension this summer. Thomas skipped mandatory minicamp and threatened to continue the holdout into training camp if the Seahawks do not address his contract, but Henderson reports the two sides are not currently negotiating. A trade could end up being the best option for both Thomas and the Seahawks, but it is unclear if a deal is out there. Seemingly Tho ...

20 June 2018

ESPN Tallahassee radio host Jeff Cameron reports Jameis Winston is "prepared for the NFL to levy a suspension" in its investigation of his March 2016 incident with an Uber driver.

Winston is alleged to have groped an Uber driver, but he was never charged with a crime. Regardless of ...

Former No. 28 pick OG Garnett on bubble in SF

20 June 2018

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes 2016 first-round OG Josh Garnett is the "most prominent player in danger of being cut" by the 49ers. He was the 28th overall pick in the 2016 draft and sat out all of last year following a knee scope and conditioning issues. The new regime doesn't seem to be a huge fan of Garnett, who was ex-coach Chip Kelly's final first-round selection in San Fran. Garnett is competing with veteran Mike Person and fellow former fi ...

Blake Jarwin was Cowboys' 'TE1' during spring

20 June 2018

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports second-year UDFA Blake Jarwin worked as Dallas' No. 1 tight end during OTAs and minicamp. According to Mosher, Rico Gathers "barely gets any snaps in practice." Gathers hasn't played a single snap since being drafted in 2016 but flashed big-time potential last preseason only for the Cowboys to ask him to bulk up and improve his blocking this year. It sounds like Jarwin is the preferred pass-catching option, with Gathers ...

Allen Hurns is Cowboys' 'clear-cut' No. 1 WR

20 June 2018

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports Allen Hurns was the team's "clear-cut" No. 1 receiver throughout spring practices. As expected. Hurns inked a two-year, $12 million pact after his release from Jacksonville, and the Cowboys then released Dez Bryant while failing to re-sign Brice Butler. It leaves Hurns as the default top wideout, followed by Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, and rookie Michael Gallup in whichever order. In an offense that figures to lea ...

2016 1st-rounder Shaq Lawson on roster bubble

20 June 2018

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes 2016 first-round DE Shaq Lawson is "competing for a rotational role, if not for his 53-man roster spot entirely" this summer. Rodak thinks the team could try and trade Lawson ahead of Week 1, especially once free agent pickup Trent Murphy (knee) is back to 100 percent opposite Jerry Hughes. Buffalo also has Eddie Yarbrough, Terrence Fede, and Owa Odighizuwa as rotational pieces. Lawson, the No. 19 overall pick by ex-co ...

Terrelle Pryor blames down '17 on ankle issue

19 June 2018

Terrelle Pryor blames his down 2017 on his ankle injury. Pryor, who made nine appearances for the Redskins before landing on injured reserve, said he tore his deltoid ligament in the Redskins' opener. The injury required surgery after his I.R. placement. "I couldn't focus on my game because I was worried about my foot," Pryor said. "It took control of my mind. Right now, I'm healthy and ready to get back to form and have a dominant year." Pryor actua ...
