Report: WR Miles Austin set to sign with Eagles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:09 am ET) Veteran wide receiver Miles Austin is set to meet with the Eagles this week, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. 

Rapoport added Austin will sign when he meets with the Eagles, as long as his physical goes well, a source said.

The 30-year-old Austin appeared in 12 games (11 starts) for the Browns last season before being placed on injured reserve with a kidney injury. Austin totaled 47 receptions for 568 yards and two touchdowns.


Hakeem Nicks set to visit with 49ers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:55 am ET) Free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks told ESPN on Monday that he is traveling to California to visit with the 49ers.

Nicks played the 2014 season with the Colts after spending his first five seasons in the NFL with the Giants. Nicks totaled 38 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games (six starts) last season.


Cardinals pushing for more consistency out of WR Michael Floyd


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:11 am ET) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians knows wide receiver Michael Floyd is capable of big things in his offense. He also feels Floyd was the victim of the quarterback injuries last year, reports Fox Sports 910.

"I think some frustration went into his play at times," Arians said. "But he still needs to hit a consistency level. He's a thousand-yard player every year. He should have had a thousand, easily, last year."

Floyd finished with 47 catches for 841 yards and six touchdowns in 2014. He is entering the final year of his contract in 2015.


Panthers sign WR Jarrett Boykin to one-year deal


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/27/2015) The Panthers signed free agent wide receiver Jarrett Boykin to a one-year deal Friday, per David Newton of ESPN.com. 

The 25-year-old receiver had a big campaign with the Packers in 2013, catching 49 passes for 681 yards, but fell out of favor last season, grabbing just three balls for 23 yards in 13 games. Boykin has 57 career receptions in three seasons, all with the Packers. 


Panthers' Rivera expecting Stephen Hill to contribute in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Panthers coach Ron Rivera believes wide receiver Stephen Hill is ready to make an impact in 2015 after spending the 2014 season on the practice squad, per ESPN.

“Very much so," Rivera said Wednesday during the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix. “He’s a guy we feel has an opportunity. We’re very excited about [seeing] Stephen during OTAs and minicamp.

“With his size (6-4, 215) and speed and his ability to get vertical, if he can assimilate to what we do -- and I think he will; he seems to be a very smart man -- he might be a guy that has an opportunity to contribute for us."

Rivera felt Hill's year on the practice squad was beneficial after the 2012 second-round pick failed to live up to expectations during his tenure with the Jets. 

“I thought it was a good opportunity to take a step back and take a break," Rivera said. “The thing I liked about Stephen was how he contributed to our football team’s success. He came in. He had been a second-round pick. He had no assumptions, no entitlement.

“He ran all the scout teams for us. He ran them hard. Gave us great looks, which is what makes us excited 'cause you watch a guy perform who could very easily dog it, and he didn’t. And you saw him grow. You saw him make catches. You saw him get comfortable in his own skin again."


Gruden: Redskins 'keeping a close eye' on Santana Moss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) With wide receiver Santana Moss still looking to continue his NFL career, Washington coach Jay Gruden said there is a chance the Redskins might re-sign the veteran receiver, who had just 10 catches in 2014.

"We're keeping a close eye on Santana," Gruden said at the NFL owners' meetings in Phoenix, per ESPN. "You know, that's something that we know where Santana is and he knows where we are, and something may work out down the road.

"I could always play with Santana. Santana's a great person. He's great in the locker room for us. He knows all the positions. I know he's going to be in great shape, and I would not hesitate one bit to call him."


Former Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin: I still believe in Chip Kelly


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Former Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin apparently has no ill-will toward Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly. Although the Eagles could not match the Chiefs' five-year, $55 million contract offer, which Maclin signed in mid-March, Maclin is still a fan of Kelly, who has overhauled the Eagles' roster this offseason.

"I still believe in Chip," Maclin said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think Chip's going to do great things here. I have the utmost respect for him. Unfortunately, we couldn't get something worked out. But at the end of the day I'm very excited about playing for Kansas City and playing for Big Red."

As well as Maclin not being brought back, the Eagles traded LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles. They also released defensive end Trent Cole and offensive lineman Todd Herremans.

Maclin missed the 2013 season -- Kelly's first in the NFL -- due to a torn ACL. However, he returned in 2014 to post career highs in targets (143), catches (85) and receiving yards (1,318), while tying a career high with 10 touchdowns.


Giants' Coughlin: WR Victor Cruz looks 'really good'


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is encouraged that wide receiver Victor Cruz can return to form, according to the NY Daily News. Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon that forced him to miss 10 games last season.

“I think he will be back to the player that he was and hopefully better. Victor looks really good, he’s starting to run, I was in the field house watching him rehab, he’s coming along well.” … As for when Cruz will be back at practice, full-time, Coughlin added, “I don’t know. I shouldn’t say this, because medically I really do not have a definite answer, but by training camp, hopefully. He will work his way through.”

Through his five years in the NFL, Cruz has 264 receptions for 3,963 yards and 24 touchdowns.


Bill O'Brien: 'Sky's the limit' for WR DeAndre Hopkins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) With Andre Johnson now in Indy, DeAndre Hopkins enters the 2015 season as the Texans' undisputed No. 1 receiver.

“He had a really good year last year and the sky’s the limit with Hop (Hopkins)," coach Bill O'Brien told NFL Network. "He’s an excellent young player who works extremely hard and we’re looking forward to putting together our whole receiving corps and he should be the leader of that.”

Hopkins led Houston with 1,210 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns last year. He has 128 catches for 2,012 yards and eight scores in his two NFL seasons.


Steelers re-sign WR Darrius Heyward-Bey to one-year deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) The Steelers announced they re-signed receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey to a one-year contract. Heyward-Bey, 28, enters his second season with Pittsburgh after catching three passes for 33 yards last year.

Heyward-Bey's best season came in 2011 with the Raiders, when he caught 64 passes for 975 yards and four touchdowns.


No timetable on return for Giants WR Victor Cruz


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Although Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is cautiously optimistic about the return of wide receiver Victor Cruz, he seems to be lowering his expectations, according to the New York Post.

“I think he’ll be the player that he was, and hopefully better,” Coughlin said during the NFC coaches’ breakfast at the Arizona Biltmore. “But as far as when, I would be careful. Hopefully, it’s the first [regular-season] game. But if it isn’t, we’ve done that before. We just went through it.”

Cruz suffered a nasty patellar tendon injury in 2014. Coughlin liked what he saw in last week's workout for the wideout, stating that he hopes to have Cruz available at the start of training camp. But they won't rush him back.

“You’re not just going to throw him to the wind,” Coughlin said. “He’ll work his way through.”

The 28-year-old was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Over his five-year career, he has tallied 264 receptions for 3,963 yards and 24 touchdowns.


Rams WR Brian Quick 'starting to see the light'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Rams wideout Brian Quick is coming along in his rehab from shoulder surgery and is "starting to see the light," coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN.com. Fisher, however, would not commit to Quick being ready for training camp.

Quick, 25, caught 25 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns before getting hurt in the seventh game of the season.


Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee projected as starting outside WRs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are expected to be the Jaguars' starting outside receivers this season, per the team's website. Justin Blackmon remains suspended indefinitely, and Cecil Shorts left the team via free agency.

Under this scenario, Allen Hurns would be a backup or possibly play the slot.

"The Jaguars like Lee and Robinson on the outside," the website said. "That’s where they envision them."


John Fox: New conditioning program will aid Alshon Jeffery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Bears coach John Fox is changing the team's offseason conditioning program, and he thinks the tweaks will help wideout Alshon Jeffery, reports ESPN.com. Jeffery is the Bears' No. 1 receiver now that Brandon Marshall has been traded to the Jets.

The 25-year-old dealt with nagging hamstring problems last year.

“I really liked Alshon coming out [of college],” Fox said at the NFL owners' meetings. “One of the things I’d say is we had a lot of soft-tissue injuries last year as a football team. We’ve kind of changed philosophically in the weight room. I think you’ll see we’re going to do things a lot different from offseason conditioning, the approach to how we handle that. I don’t think we had a soft-tissue injury a year ago in Denver other than one particular guy.”

Jeffery caught 85 passes for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, his second straight 1,000-yard season.

“I think [the new conditioning approach] will help him,” Fox said. “There have been times in his career when he might have been a little bit overweight, but obviously a beast as far as size, and a guy we’re looking forward to getting to know better.”


Golden Tate might return more punts in 2015


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) The Lions' Golden Tate was used strictly as a receiver during the regular season last year before returning a punt against the Cowboys in Detroit's playoff loss. Coach Jim Caldwell suggested Tate might get more opportunities as a punt returner in 2015.

"I suspect at some point in time he's going to play a role in that area for us," Caldwell told MLive.com.

Playing for Seattle in 2013, Tate had eight punt returns of at least 20 yards. Lions punt returner Jeremy Ross had just three such returns last season, and he fumbled four times.


Cardinals sign TE Ifeanyi Momah


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) The Cardinals announced they've signed tight end Ifeanyi Momah, who was waived by the Lions last month. Momah, 26, spent time on the Browns and Lions practice squads last season after signing with the Eagles in 2013 as a rookie free agent out of Boston College.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson had hip procedure following Pro Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said star wideout Jordy Nelson had a "cleanup" procedure on his hip after the Pro Bowl, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The procedure went well, and Nelson will be fully recovered in time for OTAs, the coach added.

"It was something that was kind of hindering him after the Pro Bowl. Something that he felt he needed to get cleaned up," McCarthy said, per ESPN. "But it's nothing serious."


Coughlin: Victor Cruz 'looks good, light, and just started running'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the goal for receiver Victor Cruz is to participate in training camp and be ready for the season opener, reports the New York Post. Cruz "looks good, light and just started running," Coughlin said.

Cruz is coming back from a torn patella tendon suffered last October.


Cowboys not worried about a Dez Bryant holdout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the team's website he's not worried wideout Dez Bryant might hold out if the sides can't agree on a long-term contract. Dallas slapped the franchise tag on Bryant and will pay him $12.7 million this season.

"I'm not worried about that at all, and it's because of how much he loves the game, how much he knows that preparation, practice, all of that improves him," Jones said.

The owner added there's no timetable for getting a multiyear deal done.

"It's not imperative for him or us to get something done by the season or otherwise," Jones said.  "Let's be real clear: The franchise is there just to do exactly what it's doing, and it really rewards, financially, a player. And so while both of us would like to have a long-term agreement -- and I can speak to that, we both would -- it's not imperative on any type of timeframe of months or during the time the franchise is in to get something done."


Vikings coach Zimmer: Cordarrelle Patterson won't be traded


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is keen on wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. So much so, he doesn't want to get rid of Patterson via trade, according to NBC Sports Radio.

"No, no chance whatsoever," Zimmer said. "Cordarrelle is a young, emerging player who was with his third coordinator in three years. Quite frankly, we need to do a good job of figuring out how we can use him better and he needs to understand where he's supposed to be, the routes and everything."

Patterson struggled in 2014 with just 33 catches for 384 yards.

"He's going to play good football for us," wide receivers coach George Stewart said in December. "He's a first-round pick for a reason, and he's going to be very successful for us going forward."


Broncos expect big jump in year two for WR Cody Latimer


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) The Broncos new head coach Gary Kubiak expects second-year wide receiver Cody Latimer to see more playing time in 2015, per the team's official website.

"I think it’s time for him to make a big jump, not just a little jump," Kubiak said from the media availability at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix. "I think it’s time for him to make a big jump and how we end up being built at receiver—I know that [WR] Wes [Welker] is still [a] free [agent] and there are some things that still need to pan out—but obviously his play time is fixing to pick up and it needs to pick up. We need him to make a big jump."

Kubiak thought highly of the young wideout when he was entering the 2014 draft.

"He came by the office the other day. I thought a lot about him coming out [of college]. I spent a lot of time with him in Baltimore," Kubiak said, reflecting on last year's draft. "We were very interested in him going into the draft, so I knew him very well. It’s funny. I told him in Baltimore, ‘Hey, we might not end up with you, but our paths may cross some day.’ He walked into my office and said, ‘Hell, I didn’t know it would be this quick.’ He’s a fine player. He showed a lot of flashes from me watching him in practice."

As a rookie, Latimer finished the season playing in eight games with only two receptions for 23 yards.


Dolphins Joe Philbin excited about WR Kenny Stills and TE Jordan Cameron


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is excited about the overhaul of the receiving corps, notably the additions of tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Kenny Stills, according to the team's official website.

Philbin started off by complimenting Cameron.

“I would say the one thing that (Cameron brings)?would be big skill if I can just throw out that term,”?Philbin said. “He’s a little bit bigger than the tight ends we’ve had. He still runs very very well. I think that’s maybe a little bit of a different dimension. I think the down the middle of the field potentially you might see us attack the middle of the field a hair more. We’re excited about him.” 

The head coach went on to talk about how Stills fit into the Dolphins' offense.

“We thought he was a really good scheme fit in our offense,”?Philbin said. “I thought he had good production. A couple of things that stood out, we kind of a did a study of receivers in the league that had at least 50 catches and one of the things we liked about him, I think he was targeted about 84 times and I think he had 63 receptions. So he was second, I believe, in the league in terms of, if you throw him the ball, he’s going to catch it. We liked the fact that, when the quarterbacks threw him the ball, a high percentage of the time there were completed passes. That was one thing. We thought he was productive on third down. Statistically, conversions on third down. He fit what we do. I thought he’s a good route runner. He has good hands. His speed is good. I thought schematically he was a good fit.” 


Cowboys won't promise not to tag Dez Bryant


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) When the Cowboys signed defensive end Greg Hardy , the team included a clause in Hardy's contract saying he couldn't receive the franchise or transition tag after the season. 

Wide receiver Dez Bryant will not receive the same type of clause, Dallas executive vice president Stephen Jones said. 

"I don't have that kind of interest in doing that," Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. "While he may find one thing he likes about Hardy's contract, after that I don't think there's a lot for him to like about it.'' 

Most of Hardy's money is non-guaranteed.


Michael Campanaro will get a shot as Ravens' return man


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) The Ravens will need to replace Jacoby Jones as a return specialist, after the Pro Bowl kick returner signed with the Chargers in early March. 

Meeting with the media at the NFL Meetings, John Harbaugh wouldn't commit to a replacement for Jones, but he said that Michael Campanaro would get a shot, per ESPN

As a rookie last season, Campanaro returned two punts for a total of 17 yards. He also had seven catches for 102 yards and a touchdown. 

"I look at like it’s March, and we need a returner by September," Harbaugh said.


Report: Michael Crabtree willing to wait on signing contract


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Free-agent receiver Michael Crabtree is in no rush to find a new team. 

According to a report from CSN Bay Area, Crabtree is willing to wait a while before signing a contract with an NFL team. One of Crabtree's preferences, per the report, is for his new team to emphasize the passing game. 

The 49ers are interested in bringing Crabtree back but they already added Torrey Smith on a five-year, $40 million contract. With Anquan Boldin still playing at a high level, Crabtree could see the situation in San Francisco as unfavorable. 

Crabtree has already met with the Dolphins during this offseason.
