George Johnson DL TB 1 week ago
Johnson's three-year, $9 million offer sheet signed with the Buccaneers is being disputed by the Lions, ESPN.com reports.
Johnson's future employer hangs in the balance while an independent arbitrator reviews the offer sheet he signed last Tuesday with the Buccaneers and identifies all the terms the Lions would be required to match, should they decide to do so. The arbitrator's ruling is expected within 10 days, at which point the Lions would then have two days to match the offer. Johnson began his career in Tampa Bay, but made his biggest impact in Detroit last season, posting a personal best 29 tackles and six sacks in 2014.
John Kuhn RB GB 1 week ago
Kuhn signed a one-year contract Monday to remain with the Packers this season, ESPN.com reports.
Kuhn's deal is reportedly worth the veteran's minimum, with incentives potential raising his salary. Regardless, the Green Bay fan favorite will be back for a ninth season with the Packers. Although he played less than a quarter of the team's offensive snaps last season, Kuhn was still named to his second Pro Bowl and was named The Associated Press All-Pro selection at fullback. While those accomplishments reflect Kuhn's on-field value, his totals of 24 carries for 85 rushing yards and one touchdown last season make Kuhn a player with minimal fantasy value himself.

Moreover, Richardson is in line to reprise his key special teams role with the team.
Daryl Washington LB ARI 1 week ago
Washington will apply for reinstatement from his suspension "within the next week or so," the Arizona Republic reports.
The step would be the first in Washington's quest to learn his availability for the 2015 campaign. His suspension last season resulted from a repeat violation of the league's substance abuse policy, and in order to be reinstated, he must provide all "pertinent information" related to his treatment from his year away from football. The NFL will then have 60 days to review and make a decision on his eligibility. Since no violation has been reported during his ban, Washington seems like a safe bet to receive clearance from the league. However, he still has potential punishment hanging over his head from a domestic violence conviction for a May of 2013 incident, which will likely be taken seriously due to recent high-profile cases from across the NFL.

Allen Robinson WR JAC 1 week ago15 Comments
Robinson (foot) threw out the first pitch in the Detroit Tigers home opener, the Oakland Press reports.
Robinson, a native of nearby Southfield, is coming off a successful rookie season with Jacksonville that was cut short by a fracture in his right foot. He benefitted from additional playing time when other wideouts were injured and then developed some rapport with rookie quarterback Blake Bortles. With Cecil Shorts having moved on, it appears a healthy Robinson will gain a larger share of targets.
