Kubiak: Time for Broncos' backup Brock Osweiler to step up


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler hasn't had much playing time, as Peyton Manning's backup, but coach Gary Kubiak wants to see progress from him.

"I think it's time for Brock to take a big step as a player," Kubiak said, per NFL.com. "A lot of times in this league, the young quarterbacks don't get the opportunity to be behind a player of Peyton's status and learn before they get the opportunity in this league ... I think Brock needs to take advantage of this. But he's going to be very competitive. I'm very impressed with his skills. I'm very impressed with how hard he works in the classroom. I know he's got all of the ability."


Kubiak: Broncos will run no-huddle with Peyton Manning


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Gary Kubiak said he plans to take advantage of future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning when designing the Broncos' offense for next season. 

We'll definitely be running the hurry-up offense," Kubiak said per NFL.com. "Peyton's been the best at the business at it for many years, so that's a strength that we'll stay with."

That doesn't mean everything will be the same for Manning. Kubiak said he planned on having Manning under center more than in recent seasons. 


Johnny Manziel: I promise to work very hard to regain trust, respect


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel released a statement thanking his teammates, fans and the organization for their patience with him. Manziel was released Saturday from a rehab facility after undergoing more than 10 weeks of treatment for unspecified issues. In his statement published on the Browns' official website, Manziel promised to "work very hard to regain everyone's trust and respect."

"I understand that will take time and will only happen through what I do and not what I say. I also understand there’s a lot of curiosity about this but anyone who has a friend or family-member that’s been through things like this knows it’s an ongoing process. I’m going to continue to ask folks to try to respect my privacy as I determine to what degree I am comfortable talking about a subject which I consider very personal."

Manziel was placed on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 16 of his first year in the NFL. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M finished a turbulent rookie season with 175 passing yards and a 42.0 quarterback rating. He also had two interceptions and one fumble lost.

The Browns added Josh McCown via free agency, and could be in the market for a quarterback in the NFL Draft. Cleveland holds the No. 12 and No. 19 overall picks in the first round of April's draft.


Titans QB Mettenberger acting like 2015 starter in offseason


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Despite rumors that the Titans will select a quarterback with their second overall pick in the 2015 draft, current starter Zach Mettenberger is playing the role quite decisively in the offseason. Included on his agenda has been organizing workouts with his fellow offensive teammates.

Among those appreciating the efforts is running back Dexter McCluster.

"If you ask me, I think that's definitely a good sign for him," McCluster told The Tennessean. "That's the first step, him showing that leadershp and him knowing, 'Hey, this may be my shot, so let me go ahead and get a head start on it.'"

Wideout Kendall Wright expressed similar sentiment.

"Our quarterback, Zach, is a young guy and he is stepping up," Wright said. "He is more than ready to play, and we are all following Zach, just going out there and getting ready and running the things he wants to run, some of the things he wants to do.

"I think we all have a lot of respect for Zach. With him trying to be our leader, it is a good thing. And he is going to be the leader if he is going to be our quarterback."

Mettenberger performed well at times in 2014. He finished the year having completed 59.8 percent of his passes for 1,412 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.


Seahawks GM explains mindset in Russell Wilson negotiations


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Seahawks general manager John Schneider has expressed caution in regard to the slow pace of contract negotiations with quarterback Russell Wilson.

"Every negotiation is unique in and of itself and this is no different," Schneider told radio station KIRO. "He's our quarterback. We'd love him to be our quarterback. But the thing is we need to keep as many players together as we possibly can. What I can tell you is that this is the ultimate team sport. We have a track record of rewarding our players that we recognize as core players."

Schneider added that the Seahawks need to "make smart decisions" in working to maintain their winning ways for a long time.


Packers add Matt Blanchard as No. 3 QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/15/2015) The Packers signed free-agent quarterback Matt Blanchard on Wednesday, as the former University of Wisconisn-Whitewater standout will get a chance to serve as the team's No. 3 signal-caller, per ESPN. 

Blanchard was on the practice squads of the Bears and Panthers in 2012-13 and spent all of last year on the Panthers' injured reserve list after suffering a concussion during a preseason game. 

Blanchard worked out for the Packers and coach Mike McCarthy last week. Green Bay has not re-signed No. 2 quarterback Matt Flynn. 


Chargers' interest in Mariota could translate into trade of Rivers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) The trade rumors that have been swirling around Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers gained strength with the news that team representatives flew to Oregon to witness a Tuesday workout by potential NFL standout Marcus Mariota. The indication is that the Chargers are seriously considering trading up to draft Mariota and using Rivers as a bargaining chip.

Mariota is certainly unlikely to slip to No. 17 in the first round, where the Chargers sit. And Rivers appears equally unlikely to remain in San Diego - he has already expressed his plan to play out the one year remaining on his contract rather than sign an extension.


Report: Seahawks making little progress in talks with QB Wilson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Contract talks between the Seahawks and standout quarterback Russell Wilson are progressing slowly at best, multiple sources have told Pro Football Talk.

Wilson is under contract through 2015, but is considered underpaid in relation to other top-level players at his position. He not only led the team to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, but he is coming off a season in which he threw for 20 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.


Report: Dolphins looking to keep QB Ryan Tannehill past 2016


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) The Dolphins don't just want quarterback Ryan Tannehill on the field for Week 1, they want him locked up on a long-term contract, according to NFL.com.

If a new deal cannot be struck, the team can still exercise his fifth-year option that will keep Tannehill in Miami through the 2016 season for about $16 million. But the Dolphins are hoping they are not forced to make that a reality.

Tannehill performed well enough in 2014 to motivate the front office to work on a new contract. He set a franchise record for completions with 392 while tossing 27 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions. He racked up 4,045 yards in the process.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson not done with two-sport possibility


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/12/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has not ruled out playing baseball in addition to his football career, per NFL.com.

"You never want to kill the dream of playing two sports," Wilson said. "I would honestly play two sports."

His latest statement regarding playing two sports was made to Bryant Gumbel in an interview that will air on the HBO series Real Sports.

Bills EJ Manuel working with Steve DeBerg on throwing motion


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Bills quarterback EJ Manuel is happy to get a fresh start with new coach Rex Ryan. 

"I think God works in mysterious ways," he said, per the Buffalo News. "I’m excited with the coach we have now. I think he’s built a great staff around him. Offensively, I know we have some great guys."

"That’s all I want for myself," Manuel said of the quarterback competition. "I just want to be able to compete, let it be open, and at the end of the day the best man will play."

Manuel spent part of the offseason working on his throwing motion with Steve DeBerg. "We studied a bunch of elite passers in the game, and they all throw the ball, not necessarily the same exact way, but certain types of ways," Manuel said. "I’ve been working on that since January and I think I have it down now."

He also spent time working out with Bills WR Chris Hogan

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"You guys are in for a treat," Davis said. "He looks like a totally different guy."

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan says he's never felt better


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said a change to his offseason workouts has helped him improve his overall health, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"I feel better than I ever have," Ryan said. "That is one of the things that has allowed me to kind of get back into throwing a little bit more and spending some time on the field is kind of a change in everything, kind of day-to-day life and how you work out and all of those kind of things have helped me feel younger."

Ryan added that he doesn't anticipate having trouble learning new offensive coordinator Kyle Shannahan's offense.

"There is a lot stuff you might just have a thing here [or] there that needs to be tweaked," he said.


Colts exercise fifth-year option on QB Andrew Luck


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) The Colts announced on Thursday that they have exercised the fifth-year option on quarterback Andrew Luck's rookie contract. 

This puts Luck under contract through the 2016 season. He's entering the fourth year of his rookie deal this season. Since being the top overall pick in the 2012 draft, Luck has started 48 games for the Colts. He led Indianapolis to the AFC Championship this past season. 

In his first three NFL seasons, Luck has completed 1,062 of 1,813 passes for 12,957 yards, 86 touchdowns and 43 interceptions. He's been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his three years. 

Luck threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2014, which included throwing for over 300 yards consecutively in Weeks 3 through 11. 


49ers WR Anquan Boldin to Colin Kaepernick: 'Be yourself'


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/9/2015) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in the midst of an offseason evolution of his game, but he has one supporter in wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who said in a radio interview that the signal-caller should not reinvent the wheel, per NFL.com. 

"To be honest with you I think he just has to block out everything else around him, stop listening to what people want, what people have to say about you, stop listening to what people want to see you do and just be yourself," Boldin said. 

Kaepernick, who has been working with former QB Kurt Warner, completed 60.5 percent of his passes in 2014, throwing for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 639 yards and one touchdown on the ground.


Jets' Geno Smith spent two months training with QB mentor House


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith spent nearly two months this offseason training with former major-league pitcher Tom House, according to ESPN. House said he had Smith focus on four basic metrics: Biomechanical, functional strength, nutrition and a mental/emotional profile.

"I think he left incrementally better in all four metrics," House said.

House described Smith as a hard worker that is "not afraid to put in the time." House said they challenged Smith and "he met the challenge perfectly."

"He's really good," said House, who has also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees. "None of them are perfect -- Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux weren't perfect when they came to me -- but we try to train for perfection."

Smith spoke highly of his time with House, who said he made "incremental changes in (Smith's) delivery and incremental changes in his conditioning."

"This should make him a more consistent performer for a longer time," House said.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Manziel is reportedly still in rehab but was recently spotted golfing with his father at a course in Shreveport, Louisiana.

"Obviously there's some uncertainty with Johnny right now and that's why we brought in Josh [McCown]," Thomas said. "He's a guy that if he's asked to carry the flag this year, he's going to do a great job. There's a chance we draft somebody or there's a chance Johnny comes back and he's a new person and he's rededicated to football."

Smith managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) New Bills coach Rex Ryan brought in veteran quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor in the offseason, but that doesn't mean he's ready to give up on EJ Manuel

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.

Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done. 

Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green

Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.

Lions Kellen Moore looking to improve status on depth chart


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) After signing a two-year deal to remain with the Lions, quarterback Kellen Moore is looking to improve his status on the depth chart, reports the team's official website.

“It’s a good place, a good situation,” Moore said in a telephone interview from Boise, where he is spending the offseason with his wife, Julie, and their young child.

“Ideally, the hope was to be able to go back, as long as there was a little plan in place. I feel like it’s a good situation to go back to. I didn’t have to deal with all the variables.”

Head coach Jim Caldwell likes what he sees in Moore.

“They all have a chance,” Caldwell said at the recent NFL Annual Meeting. “He’s got some qualities that you really like.”

“It’s nice that they see some value in you,” Moore said. “As a backup quarterback, you’re not seen on the field, other than a few August games. But hopefully, you still have an impact on the team – with the other players, helping in the film room.

“We enjoy Detroit – stuff that’s not football related. Obviously, in the football side of it we have a good room. Matthew’s obviously a tremendous quarterback. Dan’s been awesome. It’s awesome that we’re all set to come back.”

Although Moore would like to see the playing field, he recognizes that the team has its starter in Matthew Stafford.

“Obviously, at the end of the day all of us love playing the game of football. Only so many guys get to play. We’ve got good guys, and we’ve got a great starter in Matthew.

“You have to take advantage of opportunities, whether it’s preseason games or whatever.”

Moore has yet to throw a pass during a regular season game after being drafted by the team in 2012.


Dolphins QB Josh Freeman: Year away from football left me hungry


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Newly acquired Dolphins quarterback Josh Freeman told reporters in a phone conference that a year away from football left him hungry, "wanting to get back in the swing of things," according to the Miami Herald.

Freeman, a former first-round selection, was benched by the Bucs in 2013 and traded to the Vikings. The 27-year-old played one game for the Vikings and failed to latch onto another team in 2014.

"I learned a lot," Freeman said. "I mean, how much time do you have? The NFL is constantly shifting with players, coaches, organizations. There's a lot that goes into the product you guys see on Sundays. I've spent time watching quarterbacks, watching the process, trying to formulate a plan that will allow me to be as good as possible.

"I learned that regardless of how things end up and turn out, if I give it everything I got, there are no questions, no doubts in my mind. It's not an uncommon thing for guys to get cut and be out of the league. But it's not how I see myself. It's not how I see myself in the future."


QB Drew Brees expects to retire with Saints


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Despite the trade rumors that were being floated around by the NFL media, Saints quarterback Drew Brees expects to retire with the team, reports the Times-Picayune.

Asked if he planned to retire with the Saints, Brees said, "I do, absolutely."

"But I also understand the reality of the business," he added. "You got to perform, you know. You got to give them reason to keep you around."

"I'll be honest with you, I really did not pay attention one bit," Brees said in an interview Thursday with WWL AM 870 radio.

"This is that time of year where I am very focused on family. ... I have a close enough relationship with everybody within the Saints organization that if something was going on, I would have heard about it from them. If there was any seriousness, you know, reality (to the rumors), that would be discussed. Anything that I hear or get wind of is typically false. False reports."

In 2014, Brees finished with his fewest touchdown passes (33) since 2010. Over his 14 seasons in the NFL, the 36-year-old has thrown for 56,033 yards with 396 touchdowns and 194 interceptions.
