by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Bell, who rushed for 1,361 yards and eight touchdowns and added another 854 yards in receptions, said he will work like he is going to play, even though he has no idea when his appeal will be ruled on.

Vikings restructure RB Adrian Peterson's contract


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) The Vikings announced Tuesday that the team and running back Adrian Peterson "mutually agreed" to restructure the final three years of Peterson's contract, bringing to a close a contentious bit of negotiation between team and player. 

According to reports, this means his contract for 2015 is guaranteed at $13 million, in addition to receiving guaranteed money for the 2016 season. 

"I appreciate the Vikings for working together on this restructured contract, which provides additional security for me but also allows opportunities for me to further prove my value to the team and within the NFL," Peterson said. "It was important for me to continue my career in Minnesota, and I cannot wait to get on the field in front of Vikings fans again."

Peterson missed 15 games last season after being placed on the commissioner's exempt list while dealing with child abuse allegations, and at times expressed his desire to not play for the Vikings anymore. 


Report: Rams' Todd Gurley to be placed on Non-Football Injury list


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) The Rams are planning to put running back Todd Gurley on the Non-Football Injury list, per NFL reporter Ian Rapoport, which gives the team the flexibility to remove him from the list at any time. 

Gurley is still recovering from an ACL injury in his left knee, which ended his college career early. He has said he will be ready for training camp, but this move gives St. Louis extra time in order to get Gurley ready. 


Bengals' Jackson wants RB Jeremy Hill to embrace the hype


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) There has been a lot of buzz generated this offseason surrounding Bengals second-year running back Jeremy Hill. While some coaches might want to downplay or shy away from the hype, Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson wants Hill to embrace it.

"We can't run from it because they're going to say it," Jackson said, per ESPN.com. "Now you've got to go live up to it. There should be no pressure in that. All it is is to go out and work. To me, if a guy wants to be great, he's got to relish that. He's got to want that and then go exceed it.

"That would be my challenge to [Hill]. I expect him to exceed whatever the expectation is about him."

Jackson has high hopes for Hill and fellow running back Giovani Bernard.

"The sky's the limit for him and Gio," Jackson said. "But they've got to go out and do it. They've got to do it on a consistent basis, week in and week out. It can't be about the plays that are called, the defenses that they're facing. You've got to make plays."


RB Khiry Robinson could be odd man out in Saints backfield


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/6/2015) Running back Khiry Robinson is a fan favorite with the Saints, but the third-year pro, who once was viewed as a breakout candidate for the team, may find his role squeezed by the presence of Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller, per ESPN.com. 

Robinson dealt with a broken arm last season, which limited him to 12 carries and 32 yards over the final 10 weeks of the year. The Saints then re-upped with Ingram and brought in Spiller to replace Pierre Thomas, meaning Robinson will have to fight hard in training camp to establish a role. 

"I just gotta keep working," Robinson said. "It's all love in the backfield. We all work together, try to help each other. So I think it's a good thing we've got a full backfield again. So if anybody goes down, we've got another player right up there to do the same thing."


Saints RB Khiry Robinson doesn't feel he's on outside looking in


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Saints running back Khiry Robinson might be the least known of his backfield counterparts, but he doesn't feel like the off man out, per ESPN.com.

Robinson knows the team is heavily invested in the likes of Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller, but he's still confident he can thrive in whatever role the Saints put him in.

“I’m the type of person, I’m gonna get what I get and do what I do with it. So whether it’s 20 carries or one carry, I’m gonna do the best of my ability every play,” Robinson said.

Robinson has shown flashes of success during his three years in the league. Injuries played a key role against him last season, which can ultimately put him as the third back on the depth chart. He will use the offseason to continue to improve and challenge his counterparts for playing time.

“I just gotta keep working,” Robinson. “It’s all love in the backfield. We all work together, try to help each other. So I think it’s a good thing we’ve got a full backfield again. So if anybody goes down, we’ve got another player right up there to do the same thing.”


Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon claims he'd pick himself in Fantasy


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon doesn't have a Fantasy football team, but if he did...

"If ... I could take myself, I would," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Never mind that Adrian Peterson has returned to the backfield. Never mind that Peterson has traditionally not yielded many carries to teammates. In 2012, for instance, he totaled 348 of his team's 401 rushing attempts.

The Vikings, however, are expected to use a more balanced approach in 2015. And McKinnon, who flashed as a starter with Peterson sidelined last season, is feeling dandy after undergoing lower back surgery in December.

"Two hundred percent," he declared in regard to his health. "If there is a 300, I feel 300. It's all good."

McKinnon averaged 4.8 yards per carry a year ago, which buoyed his confidence.


Lions RB Joique Bell predicting at least a 1,200-yard season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Lions featured back Joique Bell is coming off a knee injury that has sidelined him throughout the offseason and has also been dealing with an Achilles issue. But his confidence is not hurt at all.

Bell has made a rather lofty prediction for 2015, particularly for a guy that has never rushed for more than 860 yards in a season. He claims he will exceed that by plenty.

"I'm going to rush for over 1,200 yards," he told MLive.com. "That's the minimum. If I do less than that, I'll be surprised. I'll be disappointed. Anything more than that, I wouldn't be surprised at all."

Bell averaged a mediocre 3.9 yards per carry in both of the last two years.


Rams rookie RB Todd Gurley to have knee reevaluated


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley, the 10th overall pick in this year's draft, will have his knee reevaluated in the next few weeks, according to FoxSports.com.

Gurley tore the ACL in his left knee during his final season at Georgia.


Raiders RB Latavius Murray ready to be top guy in backfield


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Raiders running back Latavius Murray is primed to take the lead role that awaits him for this upcoming season, per the team website.

Murray will be the Raiders' featured back after the departure of Darren McFadden, and he's eager to enter that top spot.

It’s a great feeling, but every day I have to go in there knowing I need to get better every day,” Murray said. “I need to play like it’s a new year. Last season is just last season and the year before that it was the year before that. Every season is a new year for me and it’s a year I have to go out and prove something.”

Murray rushed for 424 yards and two touchdowns last season, while also posting an impressive 5.2 yards per carry.


Peterson return not ruining drive of Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Jerick McKinnon had been planning to take over the featured back role full-time for the Vikings in the potential absence of Adrian Peterson.

So much for that. Peterson is still wearing a Minnesota uniform.

But that hasn't deterred McKinnon, who is still trying to prove he can be a three-down performer in the NFL. And running backs coach Kirby Wilson has noticed.

"Jerick is working on those things," Wilson told ESPN. "Trying to be three phases: a runner, protector and pass catcher and he knows it's a process. Something you have to put in the time and work ethic to get there and to his credit, he's doing that and I'm looking forward to training camp to see where he'll be when we make it real."

McKinnon thrived with Peterson out before back surgery prematurely ended his season. He averaged 4.8 yards on 113 carries and added 27 receptions.


Rams RB Todd Gurley hopes to participate in training camp


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/23/2015) Rams 10th overall pick Todd Gurley is still without a clear timetable for his return to the football field. The running back has been rehabbing a torn left ACL, but for his part, Gurley says he hopes to be ready for training camp.

"I'm coming up on seven months and a couple weeks," Gurley said, per ESPN.com. "I'm just going to keep progressing. I'll be here in July. I hope so for training camp, I hope I at least get to go do some individual stuff. So that's the next goal right there."

Gurley was present during the team's OTA's, increasing his workload each day. By the end, Gurley was able to play with the rookies following a practice, and he's feeling positive.

"Things have been going pretty good," Gurley said. "I'm just doing whatever they tell me to do and just picking up on our offense more and more. That was my first time doing that little walk-through after. I usually do walk-through reps at the beginning of practice, too."


Former Colts RB Ahmed Bradshaw suspended one game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Free agent running back Ahmed Bradshaw will be suspended one game, once he signs with a team.

The NFL confirmed on Monday that Bradshaw violated the league's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse.

Bradshaw was released by the Colts in the offseason. He was arrested on marijuana charges following a February 5 traffic stop and pleaded no contest in May. 

Bradshaw scored seven touchdowns in 10 games before suffering a season-ending injury last year. 


C.J. Anderson will enter camp as Broncos top RB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/22/2015) The Broncos are confident in the skills of running back C.J. Anderson, who has solidified his role as the team's No. 1 option out of the backfield with a strong spring. 

Anderson, who rushed for 648 yards in the last six games of the 2014 regular season, came into offseason camp in much better shape than the prior season and took the most snaps with the offense in OTAs and minicamp. 

"I think C.J. has worked extremely hard," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. "Coming off of last year, he deserves that opportunity, and I think he's getting ready for that opportunity. But he knows he’s being pushed very hard."

Denver also has running backs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman in the mix. 


Free agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya retires


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/19/2015) Free agent running back Chris Ogbonnaya announced he will retire after six NFL seasons, according to NFL.com.

Ogbonnaya made the announcement via his Instagram account.

"It is with great thankfulness to God and appreciation of my family, coaches, and fans that I announce my retirement from football," Ogbonnaya wrote. "It has been an absolute privilege to play this game that I love, and I look forward to my continued involvement in the future."

Ogbonnaya was last with the Giants, who cut him in May. He rushed for 604 yards on 130 carries throughout his career.
