1.Panthers | Greg Olsen tired of WR criticism (KFFL) Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen said he is tired of hearing criticism about Carolina's new receiving corps, which is largely made up of journeymen and unproven commodities. Olsen added that the Panthers' offensive identity is not going to change, so controlling the clock through a balanced offense remains important.less than a minute
2.49ers | Aldon Smith and Roger Goodell could meet soon (KFFL) San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith is expected to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in the near future, which likely would lead to a decision on any discipline for Smith.less than a minute
3.Vikings | Two battling at safety position (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings safeties Jamarca Sanford and Andrew Sendejo will be battling during training camp and the preseason for the starting job opposite FS Harrison Smith. "That will be interesting, just to see where they are at and where they compare to others guys," head coach Mike Zimmer said.less than a minute
4.Vikings | Christian Ponder has done well (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel saw a majority of the snaps during spring workouts, but QB Christian Ponder has a chance to start, and head coach Mike Zimmer claims it will be a fair competition. "Actually, I think Christian has done a very good job in the time that we've had him and how much he has improved in that amount of time," Zimmer said. "We're going to give everyone a fair shot, and preseason games will help determine it. We want someone who is going to take care of the football, lea... (More)less than a minute
5.Vikings | Chad Greenway could start at MLB (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings LB Chad Greenway could be used as the starting middle linebacker, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "It's a possibility. We keep working him in there. We're just trying to figure out the best 11 players we can and then figure out where the rest of the guys are going to fit," Zimmer said. "It's not out of the question, but time will tell a little bit more on that."less than a minute
6.Vikings | Sharrif Floyd needs to relax (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd had a good offseason, but head coach Mike Zimmer thinks the defensive tackle is trying to be too fine. "Sharrif has a lot of ability. Right now, he's trying so hard to be perfect on every single snap," Zimmer said. "He just needs to relax and let it free-flow a little bit more."less than a minute
7.Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson to remain on kickoffs (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will remain on kickoff returns despite an expanded role in the offense this season. "We want our best players to get their hands on the ball as much as possible. We're not going to keep him from returning kicks because he is such a dangerous weapon there," head coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday, July 23. "He's been a very hard worker, he has improved his route running since we've been here and things are going to change for these guys in training camp when we are able to start playing bump-and-run."less than a minute
8.Lions | Montell Owens facing roster battle (KFFL) Detroit Lions FB Montell Owens has company, as the team will employ a more traditional fullback in the offense. They signed FB Jed Collins for the role. Owens is more of a hybrid player who excels on special teams. He likely needs to set himself apart in that role or risk not making the final roster, as he doesn't fit the traditional blocking fullback role like Collins.less than a minute
9.Lions | Jed Collins to be traditional FB (KFFL) The Detroit Lions are re-incorporating the traditional fullback into their new offensive scheme this season, and that's why they went out and signed FB Jed Collins.less than a minute
10.Lions | Mikel Leshourse expected to compete (KFFL) Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure is currently believed to be the fourth tailback on the club behind RBs Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick heading into training camp and the preseason, but general manager Martin Mayhew expects Leshoure to compete for snaps. The team will use an offense similar to the New Orleans Saints, and they occasionally used a fourth tailback.less than a minute
11.Lions | Theo Riddick might break into rotation (KFFL) Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick has the chance to break into the rotation at tailback, and he has drawn considerable praise from his teammates and coaches for his development this offseason. If he proves himself in training camp and the preseason, he could potentially fill a Darren Sproles-like role in the offense.less than a minute
12.Lions | Joique Bell expects to be ready (KFFL) Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (nee) missed most of the offseason due to a knee injury, although he has said his condition is minor and he expects to be ready for the start of training camp next week.less than a minute
13.Cardinals | Deone Bucannon excited to compete (KFFL) Arizona Cardinals S Deone Bucannon was not dropped into the starting lineup during offseason workouts, as the team has faith in FS Tony Jefferson and FS Rashad Johnson. He is excited to be back at training camp working to show the team what he can do on the field rather than just working out. "It's not really nervousness, it's more anxious," Bucannon said Wednesday, July 23. "You want to show everybody you can play and be a part of this team."less than a minute
14.Cardinals | Dan Williams opens at top of depth chart (KFFL) Arizona Cardinals NT Dan Williams will open training camp as the team's starting nose tackle with NT Alameda Ta'amu (knee) on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list.1 minute
15.Ryan Mathews (RotoWire) Coming off of a career year, Mathews remains the primary back in San Diego but could see fierce competition from Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown for touches, the Chargers' Official website reports. Analysis: It will be interesting to see how the coaches use each of their three running backs this year as they all appear worthy of significant playing time, but there are only so many balls go around. The early guess is that Woodhead will primarily serve as the third-down / pass formation back and Brown will liberally spot Mathews whenever he needs a blow. As to how many touches that translates to for each, only time will tell.2 hours
16.Jonas Mouton (RotoWire) Mouton (knee) was waived after failing a physical, the Chargers' Official website reports. Analysis: A second-round pick in 2011, Mouton appeared in three games the last three seasons. He missed the entire 2011 (shoulder) and 2013 (knee) seasons due to injuries.2 hours
17.Stanley Havili (RotoWire) Havili will open training camp on the PUP list, Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star reports. Analysis: It's not entirely clear what's ailing Havili, but he was unable to take part in the team's offseason workouts and won't be available at the start of training camp. Mario Harvey figures to see most of the snaps at fullback in his stead.2 hours
18.Bengals | Christo Bilukidi placed on NFI (KFFL) Cincinnati Bengals DT Christo Bilukidi (illness) was placed on the non-football illness list Wednesday, July 23.2 hours
19.Richard Crawford (RotoWire) Crawford (knee) has been cleared to practice, the Washington Post reports. Analysis: Torn ligaments in Crawford's knee ended the 23-year-old's 2013 season before it even began, but he's been cleared to practice and will be on the field when the Redskins open camp Thursday. He will compete with Tracy Porter for playing time behind starting cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson.2 hours
20.Tracy Porter (RotoWire) Porter (shoulder) has been cleared to practice, the Washington Post reports. Analysis: Porter underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in the offseason, but he's been cleared to take the field for the team's first practice of training camp Thursday. The 27-year-old notched 67 tackles (53 solo), 1.5 sacks and two interceptions last season with Oakland, and will compete with Richard Crawford for playing time behind starters DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson.2 hours
21.Saints | Cheta Ozougwu placed on IR after clearing waivers (KFFL) New Orleans Saints DE Cheta Ozougwu (undisclosed) cleared waivers and was transferred to the Saints' Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, July 23.3 hours
22.49ers | Garrett Celek placed on PUP list (KFFL) San Francisco 49ers TE Garrett Celek (undisclosed) will start training camp on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list for undisclosed reasons.3 hours
23.Leonard Hankerson (RotoWire) Hankerson (knee) will open training camp on the PUP list, csnwashington.com reports. Analysis: Meanwhile, Hankerson, who is bouncing back from ACL and LCL tears, has been running and cutting on his surgically-repaired knee, but the Redskins are of no mind to rush him back. Once Hankerson does return, he'll have to look sharp in order to secure a roster spot, let alone a key role in the Washington offense.3 hours
24.Ezekiel Ansah (RotoWire) Ansah (shoulder) will open training camp on the Lions' PUP list, NFL.com reports. Analysis: Ansah continues to recover from a February shoulder operation and has still not pinned down a timetable for his return. Although new Lions coach David Caldwell acknowledged Ansah "will be brought along slowly", he's failed to state his expectation for the second-year player's future availability, other than saying Ansah "will be ready to go when it's time to kick it off in the fall." While it's not yet the fall, Ansah obviously won't be ready when training camp kicks off, so a status update would be worthwhile to track. In 14 games during h... (More)3 hours
25.Jones-Drew expected to start (Rotoworld) The San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur expects Maurice Jones-Drew to be the Raiders' No. 1 running back this season. Analysis: As do we, despite other beat writers' speculation Darren McFadden would get the nod. MJD is simply a superior between-the-tackles runner to DMC, and a better pass protector as well. Still, the Raiders are expected to utilize a committee approach. Jones-Drew should be viewed as an RB3/flex in fantasy leagues.3 hours
26.Browns | Three placed on NFI list (KFFL) The Cleveland Browns placed OL Chris Faulk (undisclosed), DE Billy Winn (undisclosed) and LB Tank Carder (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list Wednesday, July 23.3 hours
27.Skins to 'tilt away' from zone blocking (Rotoworld) The Washington Times expects the Redskins to "tilt away" from the zone-blocking scheme and incorporate more power concepts under new coach Jay Gruden.3 hours
28.Cowboys | Rolando McClain to practice Thursday (KFFL) Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain will practice Thursday, July 24, before traveling to a court date in Alabama Friday, July 25. McClain will return to the team Saturday, July 26, according to head coach Jason Garrett.3 hours
29.Reggie Wayne Cleared In Time For Camp (FFChamps) Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (knee) said he's been cleared for training camp, according to colts.com. Analysis: Wayne tore his ACL last October. The 35-year-old is a WR3 at best due to his age and lack of touchdowns the past three years (11 TDs in 39 games). He's being drafted in the eighth round.3 hours
30.Golden Tate (RotoWire) Tate (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the Lions' PUP list, NFL.com reports. Analysis: Tate's reason for landing on the PUP list is unknown at this point and since any injury has not been previously disclosed, an explanation should be forthcoming. No matter, Tate will open his first Lions training camp on the sidelines, although it's doubtful he'll be a spectator for long. Projected to start opposite Calvin Johnson, Tate should enjoy both single coverage and Detroit's pass-happy scheme this season, putting his fantasy stock on the rise.3 hours
31.Palmer to enter camp as Bears No. 2 QB (Rotoworld) Coach Marc Trestman confirmed Jordan Palmer will enter camp as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback. Analysis: The Bears' backup quarterback position is more notable than other backup QB jobs because of Chicago's weaponry, Jay Cutler's injury history, and Trestman's history of maximizing signal-caller play. Palmer will open camp as the No. 2, but will be pushed hard by Jimmy Clausen. The loser of that battle will likely lose his roster spot, with rookie David Fales sticking around as the No. 3.3 hours
32.NFL | Kyle Orton wants to play in 2014 (KFFL) Free-agent QB Kyle Orton (Cowboys) does not want to retire and wants to play in 2014, according to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.3 hours
33.Ace Sanders (RotoWire) Sanders' four-game suspension for violating the NFL substance abuse policy has been confirmed by the league, the Florida Times-Union reports. Analysis: Sanders, who caught 51 passes for 484 yards and a touchdown this past season, also indicated Tuesday that he likely will miss most or all of training camp due to personal issues. With the suspension now official, the wideout is thus eligible to return to the Jaguars' active roster on Sept. 29, at which time coach Gus Bradley indicated that he expects Sanders to have a role with the team. How big of a role that might be figures to hinge largely on the health and production of fell... (More)3 hours
34.Gronk Avoids Preseason PUP List, Cleared For Camp (FFChamps) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) has been cleared for training camp and won't be placed on the active/PUP list. Analysis: Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14, but he's made an impressive recovery. Fantasy owners won't have to worry about him being placed on the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the regular season, because he's not eligible. Gronk has missed 14 games the past two seasons and his third-round ADP makes him a high-risk, high-reward option.3 hours
35.Aldon Smith to meet Goodell 'in near fut... (Rotoworld) 49ers OLB Aldon Smith will fly to New York to meet with Roger Goodell regarding potential league discipline "in the near future." Analysis: "It could be as soon as next week," according to ESPN's Bill Williamson. Smith was recently sentenced to 11 days of work release after having felony gun charges reduced to misdemeanors. He was also arrested for DUI in 2013, and a bomb threat at LAX airport this past spring, but got off easy via the court system. The NFL is tentatively expected to suspend Smith 4-6 games.3 hours
36.Cowboys | Not a make or break year for Jason Garrett (KFFL) Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said 2014 is not a make or break year for head coach Jason Garrett.3 hours
37.Vernon Davis Reports To 49ers Camp (FFChamps) San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis has reported to training camp, according to Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com. Analysis: Davis missed OTAs and minicamp because he wants a new contract, but San Francisco doesn't want to give him one and he really doesn't have any leverage. Davis had 52 receptions, 850 yards and 13 touchdowns in 15 games last season and comes with a fifth-round ADP.3 hours
38.Jermaine Gresham (RotoWire) Gresham (hernia) will begin training camp on the PUP list, the Bengals' official website reports. Analysis: Gresham was kept from participating in Cincinnati's offseason activities while recovering from hernia surgery and will now be sidelined for the opening portion of training camp as well. Following the Bengals' first-round selection of Tyler Eifert (shoulder) last year, Gresham, a two-time Pro-Bowler, recorded career-lows in targets (66), receptions (46), and yards (458), while Eifert saw more red zone targets. While both Gresham and Eifert figure to share playing time in regular two-down sets, their respective fantasy values ... (More)3 hours
39.Ben Tate 'penciled in' as Browns starter (Rotoworld) The Akron Beacon-Journal has Ben Tate "penciled in" as the Browns' starting running back with camp on the horizon. Analysis: Full-squad Browns camp begins Friday. Beat writer Nate Ulrich does consider third-round pick Terrance West a "legitimate threat." Tate has an early edge because of his background in Gary Kubiak's zone-running scheme, which is very similar to new Browns OC Kyle Shanahan's. If Tate makes it through camp healthy, he's the likely Week 1 starter. We still wouldn't be surprised if West ends up with more 2014 carries, based largely on Tate's inj... (More)3 hours
40.Browns | Three waived (KFFL) The Cleveland Browns placed CB Royce Adams, LB Brandon Magee and WR Conner Vernon on the no-recall waivers list Wednesday, July 23.4 hours
41.Jamaal Charles (RotoWire) Charles has inked a two-year extension with the Chiefs, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Analysis: The report indicates that the deal makes Charles the second-highest paid running back in the league, with his contract with the Chiefs now running for the next four seasons. Moreover, the agreement sets the stage for Charles to join his teammates for training camp. As the 2014 campaign approaches, Charles is entrenched as the Chiefs' lead running back and a top-tier fantasy option at the position. After holding up well over the past two seasons, Charles' durability is much less of a concern than it was on the heels of the 2011 season, ... (More)4 hours
42.Terrance West (RotoWire) West (unspecified issue) will reportedly start training camp on the Browns' non-football injury list, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Analysis: It remains to be seen how long West will be stalled, but so far there is nothing to indicate any long-term concerns with the rookie back. Once West returns to the practice field, he figures to be in line to challenge Ben Tate for the Browns' top RB job.4 hours
43.Colts | Stanley Havili placed on PUP (KFFL) Indianapolis Colts FB Stanley Havili (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 23.4 hours
44.Redskins | No practice for Jason Hatcher Thursday (KFFL) Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins DT Jason Hatcher (knee) will not participate in practice Thursday, July 24.4 hours
45.Justin Smith (RotoWire) Smith (shoulder) has proclaimed himself to be fully healthy entering this season, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Analysis: Smith played through the entirety of last season after suffering a shoulder injury during training camp. Despite requiring surgery this offseason, Smith still managed to post 49 tackles (32 solo) and 6.5 sacks in 2013. Now, Smith asserts he's 100 percent healthy entering training camp this time around. Set to embark on his 14th season, Smith has averaged over 60 tackles and six sacks throughout his career, which might be a reasonable top-side expectation for his production this year.4 hours
46.Buccaneers | Three to compete for No. 3 wide receiver job (KFFL) Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Robert Herron, WR Louis Murphy and WR Chris Owusu will all compete for the No. 3 WR job, according to general manager Jason Licht.4 hours
47.Vikings may move Greenway to MLB (Rotoworld) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is open to moving Chad Greenway to middle linebacker. Analysis: Zimmer played strong-side linebacker last season under Leslie Frazier. He practiced at weak side during OTAs, and is now under consideration at Mike. "It's a possibility," Zimmer said. "We keep working him in there. We're just trying to find the best 11 players we can and then figure out where the rest of the guys are going to fit." Greenway's IDP stock could rise in the middle.4 hours
48.Vikings to keep Patterson on kickoff ret... (Rotoworld) Coach Mike Zimmer said Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to return kickoffs despite his increased offensive role. Analysis: Patterson was the best kick returner in the NFL last season. "We want our best players to get their hands on the ball as much as possible," Zimmer said. "We're not going to keep him from returning kicks because he is such a dangerous weapon there." Zimmer suggested the jury remains out on whether Patterson will become an equally dynamic wide receiver. "For him to take the next step," Zimmer said, "we're going to have to s... (More)4 hours
49.Chiefs | More Jamaal Charles details (KFFL) Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will earn $8.3 million in 2014.4 hours
50.Chiefs | Jamaal Charles statistical note (KFFL) Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is the only player in NFL history to have four receiving touchdowns and one or more rushing score in the same game.4 hours
51.Mikel Leshoure enters camp as No. 4 RB (Rotoworld) Mikel Leshoure enters camp "seemingly entrenched" as the Lions' No. 4 tailback, behind Reggie Bush, Joique Bell, and Theo Riddick. Analysis: Leshoure is a between-the-tackles grinder, whereas Bush, Bell, and Riddick can theoretically all function on all three downs. Leshoure, 24, could be floated as trade bait as the season draws closer. He's on the roster bubble.4 hours
52.Ravens | Steve Smith impressing (KFFL) Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith's hands have impressed Ravens QB Joe Flacco. "Just his natural ability to catch the ball with his hands," Flacco said. "He catches everything with his hands, and he does a great job doing it."4 hours
53.Sidney Rice (RotoWire) Rice (knee) has decided to retire amid injury concerns, NFL.com reports. Analysis: Rice's sudden retirement comes as he's recovering from a torn ACL suffered in Week 8 of last season. While the Seahawks felt comfortable enough with Rice's health to re-sign him in April, the wideout's lengthy injury history clearly weighed significantly on his decision to retire. Rice endured a myriad of complications, including shoulder, foot, and knee damage, to go with multiple concussions over his seven-year career. The former second-round pick enjoyed his best season in 2009, when he combined with then Vikings quarterback Brett Favre for 83 re... (More)4 hours
54.Buccaneers | Continuing contract talks with Gerald McCoy (KFFL) Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy is continuing to talk contract extension with the team, but there is no timetable to get a deal done.4 hours
55.Lions | Ziggy Ansah placed on PUP list (KFFL) Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List, according to a league source.4 hours
56.NFL | Running backs compensation note (KFFL) Only Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will make more money than Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, among their positional peers, following Charles' two-year extension.4 hours
57.Lions | Golden Tate placed on PUP list (KFFL) Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (undisclosed) will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List, according to a league source.4 hours
58.Jordan Mills medically cleared for camp (Rotoworld) Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) has been medically cleared for the start of camp. Analysis: Mills had surgery to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal way back in January. Although Mills is billed as having solidified the Bears' right tackle position last year, he was the weak link of Chicago's offensive line. PFF charged Mills with 62 QB hurries allowed, the most in the NFL among tackles. The Bears will hope for improvement in Mills' second year. He's still only 23.4 hours
59.Chiefs | Jamaal Charles financials (KFFL) Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will receive $18.1 million in new money and an extra $5 million over the next two seasons, which will put him in the top five of highest-paid running backs.4 hours
60.Rashad Jennings (RotoWire) As expected, Jennings ran with the Giants' starters as training camp opened, Newsday reports. Analysis: Last year's 163 carries represented a career-high for the 29-year-old back, so while Jennings enters training camp as the Giants' presumed starter at running back, Art Stapleton of The Record suggests that the team may be inclined to employ a backfield rotation that would also include (the now healthy) David Wilson and potential goal-line back Andre Williams, with an eye toward keeping Jennings (serving as the lead back) fresh.4 hours
61.Jets | Geno Smith draws more praise (KFFL) New York Jets QB Geno Smith is "head and shoulders" better than last year, according to head coach Rex Ryan.4 hours
62.Giants | Three get first-team reps at tight end (KFFL) New York Giants TE Kellen Davis, TE Adrien Robinson and TE Daniel Fells all received first-team reps in practice Wednesday, July 23. All three rotated into the backfield and played some fullback.5 hours
63.Jets | No timetable for starting QB decision (KFFL) Updating an ongoing story, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he will not put a timetable on naming the starting quarterback.5 hours
64.Tyrann Mathieu (RotoWire) Mathieu (knee) will begin training camp on the PUP list, the Cardinals' official website reports. Analysis: Mathieu tore both his ACL and LCL back in December, but has since made significant progress in his recovery, causing optimism regarding his Week 1 status. While he's sidelined for the beginning of training camp, Rashad Johnson will start at free safety, although the position seems to be Mathieu's to lose once healthy. Despite inconsistent playing time to start his rookie campaign, Mathieu still totaled 68 tackles (65 solo), one sack, and two interceptions in 13 games last year. As such, if he's cleared by the time the regula... (More)5 hours
65.Troy Niklas medically cleared for camp (Rotoworld) Cardinals rookie TE Troy Niklas (hand surgery) was medically cleared for the start of training camp. Analysis: He recovered on schedule. Niklas' draft position (No. 52 overall) initially seemed to suggest he'd start right away in Arizona, but he broke the hand at OTAs and is now behind Jake Ballard and John Carlson. Even if Niklas climbs the depth chart in camp, he is unlikely to be a re-draft league factor under Bruce Arians.5 hours
66.Bengals | Jermaine Gresham to PUP list (KFFL) Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (hernia) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 23.5 hours
67.Jets | Chris Johnson won't be limited (KFFL) New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) will not be limited at the start of training camp, and he was "flying" during his conditioning test, according to head coach Rex Ryan.5 hours
68.Jameel McClain (RotoWire) McClain, who left Tuesday's practice with a feared left foot injury, was able to complete Wednesday's practice in spite of lingering soreness, the New York Daily News reports. Analysis: McClain was carted off Tuesday and eventually underwent X-rays on his left foot that returned negative. Fortunately, he escaped injury, which allowed him to practice Wednesday and prevented the Giants' from already being down to their third-string middle linebacker. With Jon Beason's (foot) Week 1 status unclear, McClain is projected to start in the center of New York's 3-4 scheme when the regular season kicks off.5 hours
69.Jets | All players passed conditioning tests (KFFL) New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said every player passed their conditioning tests, noting it was the first time that has happened in his tenure with the organization.5 hours
70.Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson never considered holding out (KFFL) New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson did not consider a contract holdout, citing his responsibilities as a team leader. Wilkerson's 2015 fifth-year option was picked up earlier this year.5 hours
71.49ers | Stevie Johnson cleared (KFFL) San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) passed his physical and has been cleared to practice Thursday, July 23.5 hours
72.Antwan Barnes (RotoWire) Barnes (knee) was placed on the Jets' PUP list ahead of Thursday's first day of training camp, SFGate.com reports. Analysis: Barnes was placed on injured reserve in October of last season after a knee injury limited him to just five tackles and two sacks in his debut campaign for the Jets. With Rex Ryan's defense currently stocked at both outside linebacker positions, Barnes will be thrust into the thick of a deep competition to earn playing time once he's cleared for practice.5 hours
73.Chiefs | Jamaal Charles extended two years (KFFL) Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' contract extension is two years, bringing his total deal length to four years. The financial terms remain unknown.5 hours
74.Vikings waive DE Spencer Nealy (Rotoworld) Vikings waived DE Spencer Nealy. Analysis: The move comes just about two weeks after the NFL suspended Nealy for violating its PED policy. TE Michael Higgins replaces Nealy on the roster.5 hours
75.NaVorro Bowman (RotoWire) Bowman (knee) was placed on the 49ers' PUP list on Wednesday, the team's official Twitter account reports. Analysis: Bowman endured a gruesome ACL tear during last season's NFC Championship game, so opening training camp on the PUP list was widely expected. The All-Pro linebacker probably won't be cleared before the beginning of the regular season, which would rule him out for San Francisco's first six games. With that being the likely scenario, Bowman's IDP stock takes a significant hit this year, after three consecutive seasons of at least 135 tackles to date. When healthy, Bowman produces at an elite level, but it's doubtful he... (More)5 hours
76.Broncos | Von Miller to avoid contact for a while (KFFL) Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) will not take part in any contact until the third preseason game at the earliest.5 hours
77.Chiefs | Jamaal Charles receives contract extension (KFFL) Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has agreed to an undisclosed contract extension and is on his way to training camp, per sources.5 hours
78.49ers | Justin Smith feels fully healthy (KFFL) San Francisco 49ers DE Justin Smith (shoulder) said he is fully healthy entering training camp after offseason shoulder surgery.5 hours
79.Charles gets contract extension, RB headed to camp (FFToday) Jamaal Charles and the Chiefs have struck a deal, source says. He's heading to camp now. Analysis: That was quick. Just 45 minutes after the deadline to report to camp, a new contract extension has been agreed to by the Chiefs and their star running back. The first training camp practice is scheduled for Thursday.5 hours
80.Patriots | Greg Orton returning (KFFL) The New England Patriots re-signed free-agent WR Greg Orton to an undisclosed contract Wednesday, July 23.5 hours
81.Browns waive three players (Rotoworld) Browns waived WR Conner Vernon, LB Brandon Magee, and DB Royce Adams. Analysis: It's not a good sign for former Duke star Vernon that the most wideout-needy team in football cut him before camp even began. Magee has dabbled in both baseball and football. Adams was just a practice body for the offseason.5 hours
82.Vikings | Sign Michael Higgins (KFFL) The Minnesota Vikings signed TE Michael Higgins (Saints) Wednesday, July 23. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.5 hours
83.Maurice Hurt reports out of shape (Rotoworld) Redskins OG Maurice Hurt reported to training camp out of shape. Analysis: Hurt has had conditioning problems in the past, and failed a drug test at the 2011 Combine. Under a new coaching staff, his roster spot is not secure.6 hours
84.Jets | Jason Babin notes (KFFL) New York Jets DE/OLB Jason Babin played 68 percent of the defensive snaps for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013, logging 772 plays on the year. He was released and re-signed this offseason, only to be released again after the Jaguars paid him $500,000 in signing bonus money.6 hours
85.WR Sidney Rice retires from NFL (FFToday) Sidney Rice walked away from what has been his life and into a new chapter of his life on Wednesday. "I've hit the ground a number of times. I have quite a few injuries. It's something I've always battled through and came back from. But I just figure at this point I have the rest of my life ahead of me and I want to be able to function and do things later down the road."6 hours
86.Tavon Austin (RotoWire) Austin has completely healed from his ankle issues and looks more comfortable heading into training camp this season, the Associated Press reports. Analysis: Austin is coming off a dynamic but inconsistent rookie year. If he gets more targets this season and can find chemistry with Sam Bradford, he could be dangerous.6 hours
87.Browns want Manziel to be more dedicated (Rotoworld) Browns coach Mike Pettine suggested Johnny Manziel will have to improve his "dedication" to be a serious competitor to start. Analysis: Browns camp hasn't even begun, but all signs point to the coaching staff favoring Brian Hoyer. "I think he knows that in order for him to compete well, he's going to have to probably be more dedicated than ever," Pettine said of Manziel. Pettine confirmed to ESPN Cleveland that Hoyer will "be with the ones" when full-squad practices begin Saturday. "I think at this point, right now, it's more Johnny versus the pl... (More)6 hours

89.Jamaal Charles doesn't report to camp Wed. (FFToday) The Chiefs' 3 p.m. CT reporting deadline has passed and Jamaal Charles is not in camp, making him a holdout. First practice is Thurs. p.m. Analysis: One of best running backs in the game is seeking more money. Charles is under contract through 2015 but wants a new deal based on prior production. He's underpaid relatively to others at his position but the league-wide trend is not pay running backs. The Chiefs signed Charles to a six-year deal worth close to $28 million back in 2010. This is no time for fantasy owners to panic. It's hard to imagine this situation resulting ... (More)6 hours

92.CJ?K cleared, 'flying' in conditioning r... (Rotoworld) Chris Johnson (knee) has been medically cleared for training camp. Analysis: Coach Rex Ryan described CJ?K as "flying" during his Wednesday conditioning run, which isn't surprising because Johnson has always possessed blazing straight-line speed.

93.David Wilson (RotoWire) Wilson (neck) looked quick during the Giants' first practice on Tuesday, the Daily News reports. Analysis: The report suggests that Wilson displayed no ill-effects coming off his neck surgery, with the Giants' official site noting that he slid right into reps with the second-team offense on Tuesday. For now, pencil him in behind presumed starter Rashad Jennings, but if Wilson can stay healthy, the 2012 first-rounder has the dynamic skill-set to carve out fantasy value as a change-of-pace/backup option in a Giants' backfield that also includes rookie Andre Williams and veteran Peyton Hillis.6 hours
94.Tyson Clabo (RotoWire) Clabo signed with the Texans Wednesday, CBS Houston reports. Analysis: Clabo was with the Dolphins for the 2013-14 season and was able to start in 15 games.

If not, he'll replace recently released Brennan Williams as offensive line depth.6 hours

96.Stephen Bowen (RotoWire) Bowen (knee) will open training camp on the Redskins' PUP list, CSN Washington reports. Analysis: Bowen's season was cut short last year after the 30-year-old defensive end was forced to undergo microfracture knee surgery in December. While his recovery's initial timetable was set at six months, microfracture procedures have been historically tricky to overcome and most of the time require a case-by-case rehab evaluation. With that in mind, Bowen will continue building his health during training camp, when he can be taken off the PUP list and begin practice at any time. Nonetheless, Bowen could see his role slightly reduced this s... (More)6 hours

100.Andre Williams (RotoWire) Williams saw work as the Giants' goal-line back during Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.
