Chris Johnson - RB - Tennessee Titans Posted 4/16/14 6:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating a previous report, the New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson to a two-year deal worth $8 million, with another $1 million in incentives available.
Huddle Up:  That's about as good a contract as Johnson could have hoped. He'll split the workload with Chris Ivory on the run-heavy Jets.

Terrelle Pryor - QB - Oakland Raiders Posted 4/16/14 6:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Oakland Raiders hope to trade QB Terrelle Pryor before the start of the offseason program Monday, April 21.
Huddle Up:  The Raiders were unable to make their offense work with the run-first Pryor at the helm, so they're moving forward with Matt Schaub. We'll see what team wants to give the athletic Pryor a shot at a backup gig.

Mike James - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers Posted 4/16/14 6:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James (ankle) said he is happy with the progress he has made in his recovery from an ankle injury and that he has been able to run and cut. James would not say if he will participate in the team's upcoming minicamp.
Huddle Up:  Once he's fully healthy, James will be battling Bobby Rainey for the right to back up Doug Martin in Tampa Bay's new offense.

Josh Freeman - QB - Minnesota Vikings Posted 4/16/14 3:01pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating a previous item, the New York Giants agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with QB Josh Freeman. He could receive extra snaps this summer as QB Eli Manning (ankle) recovers from ankle surgery.
Huddle Up:  Freeman is not that far removed from being a decent NFL quarterback, though he lost his job in Tampa Bay last year and flamed out famously in his only action with the Vikings--strangely enough, against the Giants. With Manning slowed during OTAs Freeman should get plenty of reps, and he's at minimum a solid insurance policy and a backup with upside.

Montee Ball - RB - Denver Broncos Posted 4/16/14 11:02am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he believes RB Montee Ball is ready to be a starting running back.
Huddle Up:  The Denver offense runs through Peyton, and if he's ready to hand off to Ball that's good news for Montee's fantasy prospects.

Chris Johnson - RB - Tennessee Titans Posted 4/16/14 11:02am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The New York Jets are sticking to their budget/value system. While they want free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans), they will not 'overpay' for him. The depressed running back market suggests Johnson will fetch $3-4 million per year maximum.
Huddle Up:  It'll be a step down for CJ$K money-wise, but an incentive-laden short-term deal with the run-heavy Jets might be his best option right now.

Chris Johnson - RB - Free Agent Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Free-agent RB Chris Johnson's (Titans) visit with the New York Jets reportedly went well Tuesday, April 15, but he left without a deal. Other teams are involved with him, too.
Huddle Up:  Johnson, who will be hard-pressed to find a better fit, would bring the speed and playmaking ability the Jets need. He's never gained fewer than 1,422 yards from scrimmage in his 6 NFL seasons, while the Jets only have had one RB (Thomas Jones in 2008 & '09) reach that total over the past decade.

Dion Jordan - DE - Miami Dolphins Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey is expecting big things from DE Dion Jordan in his second season this year. "He's a very talented player, and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey said. "Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump."
Huddle Up:  The third-overall pick had to deal with a preseason shoulder injury and never found a groove, recording only 2 sacks and accounting for 26 total tackles as a rookie. From there, the only place to go is up.

Sidney Rice - WR - Free Agent Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Carolina Panthers might show an interest in free-agent WR Sidney Rice (Seahawks), but only at the right price.
Huddle Up:  The Panthers have already signed Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood this offseason, so why not throw another veteran wideout with something to prove into the mix as they completely rebuild their WR corps?

Ryan Clark - S - Washington Redskins Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Washington Redskins' Ryan Clark is expected to be the team's starting free safety this upcoming season.
Huddle Up:  Clark has missed only 5 starts over the past 6 seasons in Pittsburgh, and he's averaged 98 total tackles, 6 passes defensed and 2 interceptions per year over that span. That certainly sounds like starting material for the safety-needy Skins.

Dustin Keller - TE - Free Agent Posted 4/15/14 4:06pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The New England Patriots could show interest in free-agent TE Dustin Keller (Dolphins) at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up:  The Pats obviously know Keller well from his days with the rival Jets, where he averaged 53 catches and 640 yards and 4 TDs a year during his first 4 seasons in N.Y., but he's coming off a multi-ligament knee injury in the 2013 preseason that cost him all of last season.

Von Miller - LB - Denver Broncos Posted 4/15/14 4:06pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Denver Broncos LB Von Miller said his surgically repaired knee is feeling good and hopes to play better than he did before he suffered his injury. 'I'm a 100 percent positive I'll be able to come back not only be the same Von, (but) I got to be better. You come back and be the same guy it's like you go 'it's the same Von again' and I got to be better,' Miller said.
Huddle Up:  Miller, who recorded 30 sacks and forced 9 fumbles in his first 2 seasons, has shed the extra 20 pounds that many feel hampered his play last season, and a healthy return could give the Broncos perhaps the league's best pass-rushing 1-2 punch with the signing of DeMarcus Ware.

Matt Flynn - QB - Green Bay Packers Posted 4/15/14 3:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal to re-sign QB Matt Flynn on Tuesday, April 15, according to a source.
Huddle Up:  Flynn will remain with the Pack and is expected to battle Scott Tolzien for the backup job. Last season, Flynn went 2-2 as a starter after re-signing with G.B., throwing for 1,146 yards, 7 TDs and 4 interceptions.

Brandon Lloyd - WR - San Francisco 49ers Posted 4/15/14 3:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, April 15 signed WR Brandon Lloyd to an undisclosed 1-year deal.
Huddle Up:  Lloyd sat out last season after his 74-catch, 911-yard 2012 campaign in New England and gives the Niners some veteran insurance behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Don't be surprised, however, if the Niners still draft a wideout next month.

Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings Posted 4/15/14 3:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) said he has been running since mid-February and has experienced no foot problems.
Huddle Up:  Rudolph missed half of the Vikes' season a year ago with a foot injury and is a strong fantasy bounce-back candidate in light of his 53-493-9 campaign in 2012.

Chris Johnson - RB - Free Agent Posted 4/15/14 3:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The New York Jets are visiting with free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans) Tuesday, April 15.
Huddle Up:  Could the CJ2K sweepstakes come down to a pair of AFC East rivals with the Bills also rumored to be interested in the RB, who has averaged 1,661 yards from scrimmage in his 6 NFL seasons? The Jets would seem to be a better fit, but stay tuned . . .
