Terrelle Pryor - QB - Oakland Raiders Posted 4/19/14 10:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Oakland Raiders will release QB Terrelle Pryor if they are not able to trade him by Monday, April 21.
Huddle Up:  That's not exactly news that will drive Pryor's price tag up. Sounds like next week will be open season for teams interested in adding a running quarterback.

Matt Hasselbeck - QB - Indianapolis Colts Posted 4/19/14 10:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck plans to retire after the 2014 season.
Huddle Up:  Hass had a nice little run as an NFL starter, but at this juncture he's nothing more than a sage backup and veteran clipboard holder.

Michael Vick - QB - New York Jets Posted 4/19/14 10:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said the team told him QBs Michael Vick and Geno Smith will compete for the starting quarterback job during offseason workouts and training camp.
Huddle Up:  The Jets need to decide early on if they're developing Geno or trying to milk one more quality season out of Vick. A battle that stretches into training camp won't allow either QB to get the necessary reps with the first team.

Andre Roberts - WR - Arizona Cardinals Posted 4/19/14 10:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Washington Redskins may consider using WR Andre Roberts as a kick and punt returner this upcoming season, but he did not have great numbers when handled the role with the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up:  Washington is looking for ways to get their money out of Roberts, who they signed to be their WR2 before DeSean Jackson became available.

Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers Posted 4/19/14 10:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) remains in a walking boot about a month after ankle surgery. The team is hopeful Newton will be ready to go for training camp.
Huddle Up:  Fantasy owners will be on "Cam Watch" all summer long. Ideally, he'll get out of the boot and get some work in during OTAs, but it sounds more like training camp before he'll be anywhere near full go.

Trent Richardson - RB - Indianapolis Colts Posted 4/19/14 10:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said it will be important for RB Trent Richardson to participate in all of the offseason workouts so he can get more comfortable with the offense. 'He wants to be great. He's got all the talent. He's got all the ability. We would have never done what we did if we didn't believe that deep down in our core. So we look for him to have a great offseason and to have a great 2014 campaign,' Pagano said.
Huddle Up:  Nice, subtle way for Pagano to emphasize to Richardson that Indy gave up a first-round pick for him and he needs to deliver on that potential. Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard are around to swipe carries if Richardson doesn't live up to those expectations.

Jimmy Clausen - QB - Free Agent Posted 4/19/14 10:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (shoulder) (Panthers) wants to compete for an NFL backup job. Clausen had right shoulder surgery Sept. 11, 2013 and spent the entire season on injured reserve.
Huddle Up:  There's enough bad quarterbacking out there that Clausen could very well get a camp look with a team as a clipboard holder, but it's doubtful he'll get another crack at an NFL starting gig.

Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants Posted 4/19/14 10:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said on SiriusXM NFL Radio QB Eli Manning has recovered from minor procedures no one knew about in the past.
Huddle Up:  No surprise that Eli's had some work done over the course of his career, and kudos for his ability to keep it off the radar. The concern now is his recent ankle surgery and whether or not that impacts his availability to get reps with Gilbride's successor, Ben McAdoo, in the Giants' new offense.

Brandon Gibson - WR - Miami Dolphins Posted 4/19/14 10:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (knee) said he expects to be ready to go for Week 1 of the NFL season.
Huddle Up:  Gibson was an under-the-radar fantasy contributor when healthy last season, so if he's good to go for the start of the season he's a guy who can be looked to for spot start/bye week duty.

Robert Meachem - WR - New Orleans Saints Posted 4/18/14 1:45pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The New Orleans Saints re-signed WR Robert Meachem to a one-year deal Friday, April 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up:  Meachem hasn't quite lived up to his first-round status, but any member of Drew Brees' receiver rotation has a shot at fantasy success; just don't bank on consistency.

Aldon Smith - LB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 4/18/14 1:45pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The San Francisco 49ers are not expected to pick up the 2015 fifth-year option on the contract of LB Aldon Smith, according to a league source. The team has until May 3 to make their decision.
Huddle Up:  Smith's off-the-field issues have likely punched his ticket out of San Francisco.

Jordan Todman - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars Posted 4/18/14 1:45pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Jordan Todman signed his $645,000 ERFA tender on Thursday, April 17, and he will return to the team.
Huddle Up:  Todman could wind up as Jacksonville's change of pace back to Toby Gerhart, as the Jaguars currently have few other options on their roster.

Colin Kaepernick - QB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 4/18/14 1:45pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The San Francisco 49ers have stopped contract extension talks with QB Colin Kaepernick for now while the Miami police investigate an incident involving Kaepernick earlier this month.
Huddle Up:  The Niners are having a busy offseason, and not in a good way. All indications are that Kaepernick's name will be cleared regarding the Miami incident, but the 49ers front office will let the situation run its course before committing a bunch of money to their quarterback of the future.

Muhammad Wilkerson - DE - New York Jets Posted 4/17/14 10:40pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
It is believed the New York Jets have exercised the fifth-year option in DE Muhammad Wilkerson's contract.
Huddle Up:  Easy decision for the Jets to lock up their top defensive player for another year. Wilkerson had a career-high 10.5 sacks, 64 tackles and his first pro interception this past season.

J.J. Watt - DE - Houston Texans Posted 4/17/14 10:40pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Houston Texans have officially exercised the fifth-year option in DE J.J. Watt's contract.
Huddle Up:  Here's a no-brainer as the Texans brace for the coming big-bucks extension for the ultra-talented DE who has an eye-popping 36.5 sacks, 27 passes defensed and 8 forced fumbles in 48 career games.

Aldon Smith - LB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 4/17/14 10:32pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The San Francisco 49ers do not plan on releasing LB Aldon Smith this offseason. Smith is expected to be suspended at the beginning of the season, but the length of the suspension is not known at this point.
Huddle Up:  The Niners are in a tough position with Smith, but his continuing legal issues may wind up making the decision for them.

Chris Johnson - RB - Tennessee Titans Posted 4/17/14 10:32pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he expects to receive medical clearance to resume football activities in the near future. He underwent knee surgery in January but expects to be fully healthy for training camp.
Huddle Up:  For now at least, ohnson also said he wouldn't mind sharing carries, and with Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory still on the Jets' roster, look for that to be the case.

Rolando McClain - LB - Free Agent Posted 4/17/14 10:28pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Baltimore Ravens reinstated LB Rolando McClain from the reserve/retired list Thursday, April 17.
Huddle Up:  McClain, who didn't play at all last season after suddenly announcing his retirement, apparently remains on the Ravens' radar after failing to finish his conditioning test at a tryout earlier this week. McClain was selected by the Raiders with the 8th overall pick in the 2010 draft and played 3 years before his Silver & Black career fizzled out.

Tandon Doss - WR - Baltimore Ravens Posted 4/17/14 3:33pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Tandon Doss is not expected to have charges filed against him after an arrest for disorderly conduct earlier this week.
Huddle Up:  Doss is off to a shaky start with his new team and will be trying to work his way up the depth chart after 26 catches in 2 seasons with the Ravens.

Brian Cushing - LB - Houston Texans Posted 4/17/14 3:33pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (knee) was medically cleared Thursday, April 17.
Huddle Up:  Cushing is regarded as one of the Texans' defensive leaders, but it's hard to set to tone from the sideline as he's missed 21 of of the team's 33 games, including the playoffs, over the past 2 seasons due to injury issues.
