Jaguars planning to play 2015 season without Justin Blackmon


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) As far as the Jaguars are concerned, Justin Blackmon will not be lining up at receiver for them this season. 

At least that's the approach Jacksonville is taking. Blackmon has been indefinitely suspended since Nov. 1 2013 for three violations of the substance-abuse policy under the old CBA.

"Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said, via ESPN.com. "[We] plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he emerges, and he's going to go in with those top guys and compete with those other guys. Hopefully we're able to get some news, but if not we weren't planning on [having Blackmon]. We're just going to go [without him]."

Before he can re-join the Jaguars, he'll need to file an application for reinstatement, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell making a decision within a 60-day window. The application letter would include details of the treatment he's received. 

Since being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft, Blackmon has only played in 20 games. He has 1,280 yards and six touchdowns in his career. 


Report: WR Hakeem Nicks ready to sign with Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is set to sign with the Titans, per Fox Sports 1, which is further reporting that other teams that had been interested have been told the news.

The 27-year-old Nicks suffered through the least productive season of his career in 2014, snagging 38 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns with Indianapolis.


Raiders new WR Crabtree talks about criticism with 49ers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Wide receiver Michael Crabtree is shedding no tears over his departure from the 49ers, which resulted in a short move to Oakland.

Crabtree signed a one-year, incentive-laden deal for $3.2 million with the Raiders.

His experience in San Francisco was not always positive, especially as it neared its end. He spoke about feeling disrespected, referring himself as a third-down receiver and a fourth option, after an overtime victory over New Orleans. The result was criticism about his attitude.

"That's just talk," Crabtree told ESPN. "I don't worry about talk. Some people say a lot of things, but until you get to know people, then you'll know for yourself. It's just talk. ... I was friends with my teammates."

Crabtree never fulfilled his potential with the Niners after being selected No. 10 overall in 2009. Injuries prevented him from displaying his explosiveness and he finished his six seasons there with 347 receptions for 4,237 yards and 26 touchdowns.


Raiders WR Michael Crabtree trying to prove himself


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) After struggling to produce the same numbers in 2014 as previous seasons, Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he's working to silence his doubters, reports CSNBayArea.com.

"I've got a lot to prove, a lot," Crabtree said. "I don't have anything to lose, but I've got a lot to prove."

Crabtree caught 68 receptions for 698 yards in 2014, and coach Jack Del Rio said he can still be a productive player.

"He brings sure hands, the ability to separate and catch the ball," he said. "He has played in big games and made big catches. He has had significant production through the first six years of his career. He's a good football player."


Report: Titans to pickup option on WR Kendall Wright


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) The Titans are planning to exercise the fifth-year option on WR Kendall Wright, reports The Tennessean.

By picking up the option, Wright will have his 2016 salary guaranteed. In 2014, Wright caught 57 passes for 715 yards and six touchdowns.


Broncos waive WR Kerry Taylor


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) The Broncos released wide receiver Kerry Taylor on Thursday, the team announced.

Taylor has 22 receptions for 229 yards during his four-year career.


Cardinals WR John Brown trying to add bulk during offseason


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Over the course of his rookie season in 2014, Cardinals wide receiver John Brown said he could feel his body weaken as the season went on. To help avoid that in his second season, Brown said has been trying to add more bulk during the offseason, reports ESPN.com.

"It was kinda tough because like, at the end of the season, my body started going down and I started losing weight," Brown said. "So, this year I'm trying to focus on being able to keep all this weight on as the season goes on."

By adding 10 pounds of muscle to his frame, Brown hopes the weight gain will translate to a more productive season.

"Be able to make more plays than I did last year," he said.


Dolphins WR Greg Jennings wants to play outside receiver


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Dolphins wide receiver Greg Jennings has been on the team for less than 24 hours and he already has a preference on where he would like to line up, reports the Palm Beach Post.

"I'd love to go outside," Jennings said. "Coach [Joe] Philbin knows what I can do outside."

Jennings signed a contract with the Dolphins on Thursday and he said his previous relationship with coach Joe Philbin was a big factor in his decision.

"He played a big role," Jennings said."Joe and I talk frequently whether over the phone, via text. I kept him up to date. I know what kind of a man he is, the morals and values he possesses and he instills within his own guys and himself."

Jennings is heading into his 10th season and said he still has plenty of production left.

"As much as I need," he said.


Giants' Beckham says hamstring will always be in back of mind


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Although Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham said he is not bothered by a hamstring injury like he was at this point last year, he admitted the injury weighs on his mind, reports ESPN.

"[It's] always in the back of my mind, but I'm definitely a lot healthier this year than I was last year," he said.

The injury caused Beckham to miss the first four games of the his rookie season. Along with having a healthy season, Beackham said he would like to better control his emotions on the field.

"Nobody comes into this and doesn't want to be the best at what they do," he said.


Giants WR Victor Cruz has no doubts he'll be ready for season opener


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is confident he'll be healthy enough to play in the team's season opener, reports NFL.com.

"There's zero doubts that I'll be playing in that first game," he said.

Cruz is attempting to comeback from a surgically-repaired knee and general manger Jerry Reese said the team is pleased with Cruz's progress.

"He looked good, he's running pretty good, right now and he's scheduled to be back ready for the opener for us," Reese said. "But until you get out there and turn it loose, you never know what a guy is going to do. But he looks great right now."

Cruz added that he intends to return to the same player he was before he suffered the knee injury.

"I do feel like I can continue to be the same guy that I was before," he said.

During his rehab, Cruz has been able to do some straight-line running, but has not been cutting on his knee, reports The Record


Dolphins sign WR Greg Jennings on Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) The Dolphins announced the signing of wide receiver Greg Jennings on Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it was reported to be worth $8 million over two years. In 2014, Jennings produced 69 catches for 742 yards and six touchdowns.


Reports: Dolphins sign WR Greg Jennings to two-year deal


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Dolphins have reportedly signed free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings to a two-year deal worth $8 million, according to multiple reports. 

Jennings was in discussions with multiple teams this offseason including the Jaguars, Panthers and Saints. He caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns for the Vikings in 2014. Jennings replaces Mike Wallace, who was traded to Minnesota this offseason.


WR Andre Johnson: Luck 'probably' the best QB he's played with


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) Wide receiver Andre Johnson, in his first year with the Colts, said Wednesday that Andrew Luck is "probably the best quarterback I've ever played with," which makes sense given the rotating cast of signal-callers who threw passes to Johnson while he was with the Texans. 

Johnson, 33, joined the Colts this offseason after 12 campaigns in Houston, where he recorded 1,012 receptions, 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns to become one of the NFL's elite receivers. 


Steelers WR Antonio Brown says he'll be back soon


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) Wide receiver Antonio Brown raised a lot of eyebrows when he was a no-show at the Steelers workouts this week, leading many to speculate that he was disappointed in his contract. But a series of tweets suggest that may not fully be the case, per Pro Football Talk.

Brown sent out a tweet Tuesday saying "Ill be there" and then more Wednesday suggesting that he was merely spending time with his newborn daughter and that he "can not wait" to rejoin his teammates. 

Brown, who racked up 1,815 yards and 138 catches for the Steelers last season, is scheduled to earn $6 million this season as part of a five-year, $41.9 million contract he inked in 2012.


Raiders' Del Rio on Michael Crabtree: Good to have him on team


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he is pleased the team was recently able to add veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree, reports CSNBayArea.com.

"It's great to have Michael on board," Del Rio said. "Obviously, he's a guy that's been a productive player on a real good team the last several years and comes in here eager to join our organization and become a good teammate and to find his way and create a role for himself. So, he's a guy that has an outstanding catching radius, a real good understanding of how to get himself open and find some of the soft spots in a defense. He knows how to go up and make the contested catch and those kinds of things. We feel good about being able to acquire Michael."

Crabtree is trying to rebound after a disappointing 2014 season where he caught 68 passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns.


Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green not worrying about contract


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was on hand for the team's voluntary workouts Monday and isn't worrying about his contract, according to the team's website. 

Green, who is entering a contract season, wants to focus on the upcoming season, not money.

"I handle the part of playing. I'm not hurting for money," said Green. "I got my option. That's enough for now. I'm just focused on football. Next year will take care of itself."

Green is expected to earn $10.176 million in 2015. He also noted he wasn't healthy for much of the 2014 season.

"I was not out there like I need to. I was never 100 percent.  I felt like I never played like I should have," Green said. "Yeah, I'm a 100 percent."

Green had 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2014.


WR Kamar Aiken, CB Tramain Jacobs sign ERT with Ravens


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) The Ravens have announced that wide receiver Kamar Aiken and cornerback Tramain Jacobs each signed their exclusive-rights tenders on Monday, reports the Baltimore Sun. 

Aiken's offer was for $585,000 while Jacobs' was $510,000. 

Aiken played in 16 games for Ravens last season, catching 24 passes for 267 yards. Jacobs played in three games in 2014, finishing his rookie campaign on injured reserve (thigh).


WR/KR Jeremy Ross signs exclusive right tender with Lions


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Wide receiver and kick returner Jeremy Ross has signed his exclusive right tender with the Lions, the team has announced.

Ross, a four-year NFL veteran, started 13 of the Lions' 16 games last year and caught 32 passes for 284 yards.

Steelers shouldn't be worried about Antonio Brown skipping workout


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Wide receiver Antonio Brown skipping the team's voluntary workout on Monday and possibly beyond, most likely trying to force a new deal, shouldn't scare the Steelers at this point, according to ESPN.com. 

But if he should miss the team's mandatory minicamp in June, the Steelers may have a problem. 

Brown, a breakout star in 2014, signed a six-year deal with the Steelers in 2012. So with three years remaining he has almost no leverage. 

The possible strategy for Brown is to make it public now that he's seeking a new contract to help his case down the line.


Cowboys WR Dez Bryant does not show at voluntary workouts


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) As expected, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was not present Monday as the team opened its voluntary conditioning period, as he has not yet signed his franchise tag, per NFL.com.

That franchise tender is worth $12.82 million, but Bryant has the potential goal of securing a new deal by July 15. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he would not be concered if Bryant is absent, noting how his Pro Bowl receiver loves to prepare for the game.


Steelers WR Antonio Brown wants new deal, won't attend workouts


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who had a huge year in 2014, will not attend the team's offseason workouts and is mulling a holdout during minicamp as he seeks a new contract, sources told Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo. 

Brown, who racked up 1,815 yards and 138 catches for the Steelers last season, is scheduled to earn $6 million this season as part of a five-year, $41.9 million contract he inked in 2012.


Cowboys WR Dez Bryant could be no-show at workouts


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) The Cowboys begin their offseason workout program Monday, but the question remains whether wide receiver Dez Bryant will make an appearance as he angles for a new long-term contract from the team, per the Dallas Morning News

Bryant has not signed his franchise tender, worth $12.82 million, with the potential goal of securing a new deal by July 15. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he would not be concered if Bryant is absent, noting how his Pro Bowl receiver loves to prepare for the game.

The Cowboys have OTAs beginning in May and a mandatory mini-camp from June 16-18. 


Broncos WR Cody Latimer struggled to pick up offense in 2014


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer didn't see much action in his rookie season, partially because of the complex offense Denver ran, according to the Denver Post.

"It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer said. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower."

Latimer had just two receptions for 23 yards last season.

"They kept me going when I was at practice getting yelled at with people saying I didn't know what I was doing. They said repeatedly, 'Your time will come,' " Latimer said. "They said I had it in me, that I have to go out there and show the world. Part of my grind is making them look good."


WR Andre Johnson: I didn't join Colts for revenge against Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Perennial Pro Bowl wideout Andre Johnson insists that he did not sign as a free agent with the Colts with two matchups against his old Texans team in mind. He claims the move was because Indianapolis, led by quarterback Andrew Luck, gives him the best chance to win.

Johnson was surprisingly released by Houston, but revenge was not part of his game plan.

"(Leaving the Texans) hasn't even really set in," he told the Houston Chronicle. "I was just talking about that with someone (Thursday). Everybody thinks that I went to the Colts to try and get back at the Texans and stuff like that. That had nothing to do with it. I just went to the ... place where I felt was the best fit for me and where I can have a chance to win a championship.

"It wasn't about circling (game) dates or nothing against the Texans. I had 12 great years here. Been around some great people, built some great relationships, a lot of great friends. Houston's always going to be my home."

Johnson remained productive in 2014, but his yards-per-catch average declined to 11.0, its lowest since 2005.


WR Greg Jennings still available on free-agent market


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Greg Jennings is back home in Minnesota but still without a new NFL team. 

The free-agent receiver recently visited the Saints but left without signing a contract, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Jennings has also visited the Dolphins, Panthers and Jaguars. 

Jennings caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns in 2014. Assuming he does find a team for 2015, Jennings will enter his 10th NFL season.
