Report: Eagles, QB Sam Bradford working on extension


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/4/2015) The Eagles have been working on a contract extension for quarterback Sam Bradford, with the hopes of gaining control of Bradford for beyond this season at a minimum, according to a report from ESPN's Ed Werder. 

Bradford has impressed coaches thus far in offseason workouts and despite his history of injuries, the former No. 1 draft pick has many of the traits in which Eagles coach Chip Kelly admires. 

"Peyton Manning switched teams because of an injury,'' Kelly said. "Drew Brees switched teams because of an injury. So we went down that path."

Bradford has one year left on his rookie contract, and is scheduled to make $12.9 million this season. He has not played in an NFL game since 2013. 


Eagles QB Sam Bradford will start first preseason game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2015) Barring an injury, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said quarterback Sam Bradford will start the first preseason game, reports the Philadelphia Daily News.

Bradford has also been fully cleared to take part in practice and will not wear a brace on his knee. Bradford has sustained two ACL tears in his knee over the last two seasons.


Cowboys' Tony Romo plans to practice Saturday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) Despite dealing with an eye issue, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to practice Saturday, reports the Star-Telegram. Romo was held out of Friday's practice to receive treatment for a sty in his eye.

"I don't want to get into specifics of what we did, but we don't think it's a major thing, and we do anticipate him practicing [Saturday]," coach Jason Garrett said.


Bucs QB Jameis Winston earns starting role


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2015) As expected, Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith named Jameis Winston his starting quarterback Friday, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Winston was competing with quarterback Mike Glennon for the starting role. Winston was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft and will receive the majority of the first-team repetitions during training camp.

"We brought him in here to be our quarterback," Smith said, per NFL.com.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson agrees to contract extension


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2015) The Seahawks agreed to a contract extension with quarterback Russell Wilson on Friday, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora confirmed.

The extension is for four years and $87.6 million. The deal includes a $31 million signing bonus and an estimated $60 million in guaranteed money. Wilson confirmed the four year extension on his Twitter account. 

Wilson has one Super Bowl win and has thrown for 72 touchdowns with 26 interceptions in his three-year career.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo intends to practice more


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he plans to ramp up his level of activity during training camp, planning to practice for three days in a row at times, per the Dallas Morning-News

Romo, who has battled back issues for the last several seasons, did not practice in more than consecutive days last training camp. 

"I think we'll practice more this year than we did last year, but at the same time it's not out of the realm to go two-and-one sometimes (two days on, one off) and I think the plan is we'll have some where we go three in a row," Romo said. "We'll see how it goes."


NFL upholds Tom Brady's four-game suspension


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the NFL announced Tuesday.

Brady had been appealing the suspension after he was suspended for four games in May following his alleged involvement in under inflating game balls.

During the investigation, it was revealed that Brady destroyed his cell phone, which was allegedly used to communicate with equipment managers regarding the air pressure in the ball.

"[Roger] Goodell found that Brady's deliberate destruction of potentially relevant evidence went beyond a mere failure to cooperate in the investigation and supported a finding that he had sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the footballs," the NFL said in a statement.


Dolphins re-sign quarterback Josh Freeman


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Less than a week after releasing him, the Dolphins re-signed quarterback Josh Freeman on Tuesday, reports the Palm Beach Post.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Steelers backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski has been dealing with a sore shoulder for most of the last two months and is not ready for training camp.

"A couple weeks ... I'm not sure," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review about a timetable for his return. "It's nothing serious. I am thankful that we have a long training camp and we have plenty of time."

Gradkowski will almost certainly be out when his team plays in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 9.


Browns coach Pettine: Josh McCown the 'likely' QB starter


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Browns coach Mike Pettine, during a session with local reporters on the verge of the team's training camp, reiterated that veteran Josh McCown is the likely starter at quarterback, with Johnny Manziel entrenched in the No. 2 spot, per the Akron Beacon Journal

Pettine added that while he couldn't guarantee McCown would start in the season opener against the Jets, that the experienced signal-caller is firmly the team's top choice at the position heading into camp. 


Redskins QB Colt McCoy confident he can still start in NFL


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Heading into training camp, Colt McCoy remains confident that he can be a starter in the NFL but also realizes the Redskins' QB role belongs to Robert Griffin III, per The Washington Post

McCoy, who signed a one-year deal with Washington after starting one game last season, said he decided to return to the Redskins based on the coaching staff and not his chances to play this year. Even though Griffin is the incumbent, McCoy believes he could step in and contribute.

"I don't think I would be continuing to play if I didn't believe in my heart that I could start every week in this league," he said.


Report: Seahawks offer QB Russell Wilson $21 million annually


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) The Seahawks have offered quarterback Russell Wilson a deal worth $21 million per year, sources have told Pro Football Talk.

Wilson and his team remain at an impasse in contract negotiations with training camp set to open Friday.


Report: Browns QB Johnny Manziel works with Jon Gruden


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2015) Browns embattled quarterback Johnny Manziel has at least improved his work ethic since last summer, when he focused more on partying than improving his game.

He worked with quarterback guru and former NFL coach Jon Gruden last week in Tampa, sources have told WalterFootball.com. Manziel is trying to adapt his style and skill set into the NFL game. The sessions with Gruden were a combination of film study and working on mechanics.

Manziel suffered through a miserable rookie season, then checked himself into an alcohol rehab facility. He is currently the backup to starter Josh McCown, but his spring work has reportedly been unimpressive.


Dolphins release QB Josh Freeman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2015) Journeyman quarterback Josh Freeman will have to journey beyond Miami to renew his NFL career. He has been released by the Dolphins without getting a shot to show the team what he can do in training camp.

Freeman spent last season out of football after a poor year in Minnesota, which followed his inconsistencies with Tampa Bay.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Titans, QB Marcus Mariota finalize four-year deal on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) The Titans have finalized an agreement with 2015 first-round draft pick Marcus Mariota . The deal is a four-year contract with a fifth-year team option. Financial terms were not disclosed, according to ESPN.com.

Mariota represents the final first-round draft pick to sign with his new team, as he and the Titans were at odds on the language drawn up in the contract. But the two sides were ultimately able to put ink to paper.

"We are glad to have the deal with Marcus done, and I'd like to thank both Marcus and his representatives for their diligence in working with us to finalize this contract," Titans general manager Ruston Webster said Tuesday, per ESPN.com. "We were confident that Marcus would be under contract before training camp, and we look forward to him starting his career on time with his teammates when we open camp next week."

Mariota, the Heisman Trophy winner, was the second overall pick in this year's draft. 

"We are glad to have the deal with Marcus done, and I'd like to thank both Marcus and his representatives for their diligence in working with us to finalize this contract," Titans general manager Ruston Webster said in a statement released by the team. "We were confident that Marcus would be under contract before training camp, and we look forward to him starting his career on time with his teammates when we open camp next week."

“We are focused on it,” Goodell said Tuesday. “We are obviously being very thorough and want to make sure we consider all aspects of his appeal. We will make a decision as quickly as possible.

“There is no timeline. We want to make sure we have a fair and open process."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cardinals' Carson Palmer 'not even thinking about' knee injury


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2015) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer proclaimed himself completely recovered from the knee injury that cut last season short. 

Palmer has been working out with wide receiver John Brown and has noticed no lingering effects from last season's ACL tear. 

"I’m not even thinking about my knee,” Palmer said, per AZCardinals.com. “I’m still rehabbing just to be on the safe side of things but I don’t need to be at rehab. I’m full go in the weight room, full go on the field, and until it’s brought up, I haven’t thought about everything I'm not doing, because I'm doing everything I was doing." 


Titans refuse to back down on Marcus Mariota contract language


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2015) Titans first-round draft pick Marcus Mariota still hasn't signed a contract with the team. The second overall pick, Mariota is the only first rounder not under contract.

"We've always had offset language in our player contracts. It's nothing new," team CEO Steve Underwood said, per ESPN


Goodell says Tom Brady's appeal decision could happen next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

LaFell: Learning from Brady has been great for Jimmy Garoppolo


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2015) If Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is suspended at the start of the season in the Deflategate scandal, one of the more interesting storylines would be the play of Jimmy Garoppolo.

Garroppolo, who was a rookie in 2014, has little game experience. However, Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell says he has confidence in the backup quarterback and says a year learning under Brady should suit him well.

"Jimmy has grown a lot since he first stepped foot up there in Foxborough last year," LaFell said, per ESPN. "He got a little experience during the later part of the season against Buffalo; he showed a little glimpse of what he can do. He’s been having a nice OTAs, a nice offseason with us.

"I feel like studying behind Tom has been great for him. If we have to be without Tom for the first couple games, I’m pretty sure Tom will be in Jimmy’s ear helping him prepare each and every way he can to go out here and lead this team. I think we have a great group of guys around him that will kind of take the pressure off Jimmy so he won’t have to feel like he has to go out there and win the game himself."


Titans receivers can thrive in YAC with Marcus Mariota's accuracy


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) The Titans wide receiving corps could gain more yards after the catch this season because of rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota and his accurate throws, per ESPN.com.

The Titans were 24th in the league in yards after the catch last season, but with Mariota under center that can all change.

“If you have an accurate quarterback, it allows us to get more yards after that catch,” wide receiver Harry Douglas said. “And that’s one thing that makes a receiver dynamic -- first being able to catch the ball and then being able to do some things with it after you catch it. I feel like [to this point] Marcus has done everything he needs to do to get the ball to his receivers.”


Chiefs' Jeremy Maclin off to best start ever with Alex Smith


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) New Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has hit it off with quarterback Alex Smith during the offseason. 

Maclin came to Kansas City from Philadelphia in the offseason, and his communication with Smith has been more than either player expected. 

“I don’t think I’ve ever been off to a better start with a particular quarterback in my life,” Maclin said, per KCChiefs.com.

Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, like head coach Andy Reid, brought the Philadelphia offense to Kansas City, which has helped Maclin's transition. 

“He’s only a couple years removed from our system,” Pederson said. “We’ve changed some things since he’s been in the offense, but he’s such a smart, savvy, veteran guy that he’s picked up on what we’re doing really fast. He and Alex have sort of developed that continuity right away.”
