Packers 'still open' to bringing Jermichael Finley back
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11:14 am ET) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that he's "still open" to Jermichael Finley coming back to the team. Speaking with the media, McCarthy said he still considers him a Packer and wouldn't put a deadline on bringing himback. He also hasn't consulted with the doctors on whether or not Finley is healthy enough to play after suffering a major neck injury last season. 

Dolphins place Mike Pouncey, Knowshon Moreno on PUP list
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11:13 am ET) The Dolphins opened training camp Friday by placing center Mike Pouncey and running back Knowshon Moreno on the physically unable to perform list, reports ESPN.

Pouncey had major hip surgery this summer and reportedly could miss as much as eight weeks of the regular season. Moreno had a cleanup procedure on his knee and should return before the end of the preseason.

Both players are expected to eventually be key members of Miami's offense. Pouncey is arguably the Dolphins’ best offensive player. Moreno, who started last year for the Broncos, signed a one-year contract to compete with incumbent starting tailback Lamar Miller.


Jags GM lays out quarterback plans
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11:09 am ET) Jaguars general manager David Caldwell wants quarterback Chad Henne to start all 16 games this season, reports the team's official website.

The report says Caldwell expects rookie quarterback Blake Bortles to be the top backup. When asked if Bortles could start, Caldwell said, "For us it’s really going to be our team's maturity and Blake's maturity."


Steelers have timetable for Ben Roethlisberger's contract
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:56 am ET) The Steelers plan to address quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's contract situation after the 2014 season, reports the team's official website.

"I met with Ben shortly before we did the Maurkice Pouncey signing (in the middle of June) just to make sure Ben understood where we were with our intentions as far as a contract extension for him," said team president Art Rooney II. "I just didn't want him to feel like we were moving ahead with other players without any communication.

"And so I talked to Ben, and then we talked with his agent Ryan Tollner about where we are and the fact we intend on addressing Ben's contract situation after the season, so that we could address a number of players who were going into their last year in 2014. I think Ben understands that's our intention and the way we'd like to proceed. I think we had a good conversation."


Chiefs TE Sean McGrath considering retirement
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:52 am ET) Chiefs backup tight end Sean McGrath is reportedly considering retirement according to ESPN. He was not in camp on Thursday. 

Kaepernick already fond of Steve Johnson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:51 am ET) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick already likes what he sees from new receiver Steve Johnson, reports ESPN.

"He's another guy that's easy to throw to because he creates so much separation," Kaepernick said. "Very quick, very deceptive, and I'm happy he's on our side of the ball." 

Thursday, in the 49ers' first training camp practice, we could see why Kaepernick was so pleased that the 49ers' traded a mid-round pick next year to Buffalo for Johnson. He was all over the field and he was one of the bright lights of Day 1 of the 49ers' training camp.

The report says Johnson could be a huge key for the 49ers as Kaepernick tries to take their offense to the next level in 2014. Johnson is set to be the No. 3 receiver behind Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree. 


Dez Bryant hopes for new deal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:47 am ET) The Cowboys are talking with receiver Dez Bryant's agent about a long-term contract extension, but the sides are not close to a deal as the team opens training camp, reports ESPN.

Bryant wants to be among the highest-paid receivers in the league, but he understands he likely will have to wait to cash in with a new contract. Coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance, Bryant is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is due to make $1.78 million this season.

"It feels good to know that things are being talked about, but I'm going to let it take care of itself," Bryant said. "I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of."

Bryant, 25, caught 93 passes for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.

"We'll see what happens," Bryant said. "This is a business. That's the way I've got to look at it. I know that's the way they look at it. We'll go from there."


Report: Seahawks won't add new money to Marshawn Lynch's contract
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:45 am ET) The Seahawks are willing to reconfigure Marshawn Lynch's contract for him but won't give him any new money on a deal they signed him to two years ago, ESPN's Jim Trotter reported. Lynch is holding out from Seahawks camp and is asking for a new deal. 

Lynch is due over $5 million for 2014 and is eligible to earn over $7 million in 2015 before becoming a free agent.

"If we need it, Will will provide depth in the middle of the season," Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome explained.


Rams being cautious with Jake Long
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:40 am ET) The Rams will be cautious with left tackle Jake Long in training camp after last year's knee injury, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Jake is right on course right now," coach Jeff Fisher said. "I think if we're smart, he'll be limited to start camp. He'll participate in individual (drills) and do some stuff. And we'll just start building the reps and building him into practice."
