No matter what time of the year it is, there is always some new buzz or gossip in the NFL. Not all of us have the time to scour all of the NFL sites for news, which is why I am here to give you the update on what is going on in the NFL.
Tim Tebow Goes To The Patriots
I think everyone knows this news by now. Tebow was signed to be the QB3 in new England and shall make little difference for anyone playing fantasy football. If you truly want to know every detail about this unimportant news then turn on Sportscenter.
Santonio Holmes May Miss Time
It has been reported that Holmes may miss some time in the beginning of the season. When he was asked about starting week 1 against the Buccaneers, Santonio had no comment. He suffered a Lisfranc injury in the beginning of last season after a hot start.
Ryan Broyles Expects To Participate In Training Camp
Despite tearing his ACL for back to back years, Broyles has been recovering well by being patient. Last year he rushed a little bit to show off on his pro day but this year he has shown patience and it has paid off. Broyles is expected to be Stafford’s number 2 target when he plays.
The Broncos Release McGahee
Willis McGahee has been released and this just further shows the Broncos commitment to Montee Ball, their 2nd round pick. Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno are expected to split back up duties.
Ahmad Bradshaw Signs One Year Deal With The Colts
With Bradshaw in Indianapolis, the backfield is a mess. Bradshaw is expected to compete with Vick Ballard for the RB1 spot.
Victor Cruz Signs RFA Tender
All Cruz owners can breathe a sigh of relief as Cruz signs with the Giants for the 2013 season. Cruz has been a stud for them as he continually plays well without missing games.
Jonathan Stewart May Not Be Ready For Training Camp
Oh brother… Jonathan Stewart just keeps disappointing his owners one way or another. He has had surgeries on both ankles this off season. Good news for any DeAngelo Williams owners though.
Joe Philbin Says Lamar Miller Has “Really Progressed” This Offseason
Good news for all Lamar Miller owners as the head coach keeps saying he likes how Miller looks. The organization seems committed to him being the top dog in Miami. Lamar should be a solid RB2 for fantasy this season.
Giants OC Says Reuben Randle is “Gonna Play A Lot”
Looks like Kevin Gilbride really likes what he sees from Reuben Randle. With as much time as Nicks continually misses, it wouldn’t be surprise to see Randle be Eli’s number 2 target.
Kyle Shanahan Really Likes Alfred Morris
With everyone a little timid about Alfred Morris due to Mike Shanahan and his past of using any RB on the roster, it is nice to hear the offensive coordinator say Morris is “as good a back as I’ve ever been around”.
Brandon LaFell Locked In as the Panthers #2 Starter
LaFell is now in his final year of his rookie contract so now is the time to step it up and show the Panthers he is worth keeping. LaFell finished last season with 44 receptions/677 yards/4 TD’s.
Latavius Murray Is Sidelined Throughout Minicamp
Apparently Murray has a sore foot and will be missing time until training camp. Not the best news when you are trying to prove you can back up McFadden, who is bound to miss time.
Rams To Use a RBBC Approach
A top beat writer for St. Louis writes that the Rams will be using a RBBC approach this year. Not good news for owners who drafted Stacy expecting him to be the top dog this season.
Mark Sanchez Taking All 1st Team Reps In Minicamp
Despite everyone besides the Jets seeing that Sanchez is not the answer, they still have him starting over Geno. It looks like Geno will need to earn the starting job the old fashion way.
Michael Floyd Impresses Bruce Arians
According to the Arians, Floyd has made leaps and bounds to get better. Floyd keeps improving his fundamentals and does not like to make mistakes. Floyd can expect a breakout year this year with Palmer under center.
Mark Ingram Playing With The Back Ups
Apparently Ingram keeps showing he was not worth a 1st round pick as he is now practicing with the 2nd stringers. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles have been splitting 1st team reps.
Arian Foster Is Out Until Training Camp
Foster has strained his right calf and will be out until training camp. This shouldn’t change anything as he remains a very viable RB1 in fantasy.
