Terrelle Pryor WR CIN 2 weeks ago
Pryor will attempt a position change to wide receiver, NFL.com reports.
Pryor was waived Thursday for the second time this offseason when he was released by the Bengals. He has failed to stick as an NFL quarterback to this point in his career, so the 25-year-old will attempt to make a team as a wide receiver.
Cyrus Kouandjio BUF 2 weeks ago
Head coach Rex Ryan confirmed Thursday that Kouandjio is ahead of Seantrel Henderson in the competition for the starting right tackle job, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Ryan, "I think the work that Cyrus has done overall in the offseason probably puts him ahead right now. But the race isn't over by a long shot, so we'll see."
Kouandjio, a second-round pick in 2014 out of Alabama, had a horrible rookie season and hardly ever saw the field because he had an incredibly tough time grasping the pro game. But he's apparently made major strides since the season ended. If the new season started today, the Bills would see their offensive line from left to right as Cordy Glenn, Richie Incognito, Eric Wood, John Miller, and Kouandjio.
Terrelle Pryor WR CIN 2 weeks ago2 Comments
The Bengals have waived Pryor, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
With Andy Dalton and AJ McCarron also in the team's QB mix, Pryor and Josh Johnson were essentially competing against each other for depth slotting. Pryor will now look to catch on elsewhere, but his chances of being given an opportunity to start for another NFL team appear slim.
Brandon Marshall LB DEN 2 weeks ago
Marshall (foot) is expected to begin running next week, the Broncos' official site reports. Moreover, Marshall noted that he "should be able to do some drills at the start of training camp."
Marshall, who is bouncing back from offseason surgery to address the mid-foot sprain that he suffered last December, acknowledged that his foot will probably bother him "a little bit throughout the whole year," but also noted that it's not an issue that will keep him off the field once the season starts. The linebacker led the Broncos with 113 tackles last season in 14 regular season contests and appears destined to retain IDP utility, assuming he adjusts well the the team's move to a 3-4 defense.
Jason Jones DL DET 2 weeks ago
Jones missed the Lions' mandatory minicamp this week after undergoing a procedure to address an undisclosed injury, the Detroit Free Press reports. "He had a little bit of an injury that he got taken care of," coach Jim Caldwell noted of the defensive end.
While Caldwell didn't specify the nature of Jones' procedure, he indicated that the 29-year-old -- who has had knee issues in the past -- "will be ready to go" for the start of the regular season. While starting all 16 games for the Lions in 2014, Jones recorded 22 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles. In his minicamp absence, Devin Taylor and Darryl Tapp split the team's first-unit reps at left defensive end.
Daniel Thomas RB CHI 2 weeks ago
The Bears have signed Thomas, Omar Kelly of South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
While Matt Forte is clearly atop the Bears' running back depth chart, Thomas joins the team's complementary/backup mix, a group that also includes Jacquizz Rodgers, Ka'Deem Carey, Jeremy Langford and Senorise Perry. Thomas, who was made a second-round draft choice by the Dolphins in 2011, carried the ball 44 times for 168 yards and two TDs in 12 games for Miami this past season. Now that he's part of the Chicago backfield equation, he's still a break or two away from fantasy consideration.
C. J. Mosley LB BAL 2 weeks ago
Arthur Brown has been working with the first-team defense while Mosley (wrist) recovers from offseason surgery, the Ravens' official website reports.
Mosley has been limited throughout OTAs and minicamp, but he should be fine for training camp and the preseason. He and fellow inside linebacker Daryl Smith are locked into three-down roles, making both players viable options in most IDP leagues. Mosley played nearly every defensive snap as a rookie last season, finishing with 133 tackles (89 solo), three sacks, two interceptions, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and eight passes defensed.
Asa Jackson DB BAL 2 weeks ago
Jackson is a candidate to return punts this season, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Jackson finished last season on injured reserve with a knee injury but seems to have made a full recovery. The former fifth-round pick has played just 14 games through three seasons, due to a combination of injuries and suspensions. He'll compete for a depth role in the Baltimore secondary during training camp, but a job on special teams may present his best shot to get on the field.
David Cobb RB TEN 2 weeks ago
Cobb (hamstring) took some snaps in practice Tuesday, the Titans' official site reports.
The fifth-round pick out of Minnesota had been slowed by a hamstring injury throughout the offseason, so it was encouraging to see him back in action Tuesday. With Shonn Greene released, Cobb has a chance to carve out a meaningful role in a young and unproven Titans backfield. The 229-pound rookie is the biggest running back on Tennessee's roster, making him a favorite for goal line work if incumbent starter Bishop Sankey fails to improve in that area.
Dez Bryant WR DAL 2 weeks ago1 Comment
Though he did not join the team's practice, Bryant made an appearance at the Cowboys' final minicamp session on Thursday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
While Bryant was not in uniform Thursday, he was spotted catching passes with teammates on the sideline. "It's great to have him here," coach Jason Garrett noted. "Dez obviously hasn't signed his franchise deal yet so he's not practicing." As ESPN.com relays, there has been speculation that Bryant -- who Cowboys franchise tagged at a rate of $12.823 million -- could conceivably miss regular season action if he does not have a long-term deal with the team in place before July 15. At first glance, such a scenario would appear unlikely, however, given that such a move would cost the wideout roughly $754,000 per week.
