Zimmer happy with progress of Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:32 pm ET) Mike Zimmer has expressed optimism that underachieving Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson is gaining a better understanding of route-running and the nuances of playing the position in the NFL, which would allow his talent to result in greater productivity.

Patterson took a step back in 2014 after a mediocre rookie year. He played in every game, but managed just 33 receptions for 384 yards and one touchdown. He has since stated that 2015 is his make-or-break year and is apparently acting like it in the offseason.

"He's done real well," Zimmer told Fox Sports North. "He's running routes good. He's working hard. So we just need him to continue to do those things and continue to keep getting consistent and keep improving. I've been impressed."


Jaguars relying on young WRs Allen Hurns, Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:54 pm ET) The Jaguars will be young at wide receiver this year, but that doesn't concern the team. 

The Jaguars don't have a receiver with more than 59 career receptions on the roster. The team is relying heavily on a trio of second-year players in Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson

"Those guys all had 40-some catches," general manager David Caldwell said, per ESPN. "It’s not like they didn’t produce at all or missed a whole year. They did some good things ... They’re no longer young guys. They have to be our veterans."


Colts' Phillip Dorsett has impressed at team OTA's


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:28 pm ET) Rookie wide receiver Phillip Dorsett is not experiencing any rookie blues early on with the Colts, per ESPN.com.

The first-round pick out of the University of Miami wrapped up an impressive week of organized team activities, leaving a good impression on his veteran teammates.

"It's definitely not too big for him," quarterback Andrew Luck said about the receiver. "He fits in very, very well."

Dorsett averaged more than 24 yards per catch during his last season as a Hurricane, a stat that if he maintains as a Colt will get him on the field despite a talented group of receivers.

"I feel like I'm getting it pretty well," he said. "I came from a pro-style offense with a lot of concepts in college. It's basically the same concepts just different names. There's a lot more verbiage and differently terminology. So it's something that you just have to learn and get used to it."


Anquan Boldin, five others absent from 49ers OTA practice


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Six players were absent from the 49ers' OTA practice on Thursday, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Those not present were wide receiver Anquan Boldin, fullback Bruce Miller, offensive linemen Alex Boone and Anthony Davis, punter Andy Lee and kicker Phil Dawson.

OTA practices are voluntary and players are not required to attend.

Linebacker NaVorro Bowman was also not present though he was given the day off by 49ers coach Jim Tomsula. Bowman missed the 2014 season after sustaining an ACL tear during the 2013 playoffs. 


Saints WR Andy Tanner back with club on injured reserve


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Saints receiver Andy Tanner cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve with the organization, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune

Tanner has been with the Saints since 2010 but has never appeared in a game. 


Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin out for next week's OTAs


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) With organized team activities set to begin next week for the Panthers, one notable contributor is likely to be sidelined. 

According to the Charlotte Observer, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin strained his hamstring a week ago and will probably sit during next week's practices as a result. Benjamin, a rookie in 2014, had 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns for the Panthers. 

With Benjamin sidelined, rookie receiver Devin Funchess has a chance to step in and act as Carolina's No. 1 receiver during the upcoming voluntary practices. 


Colts newcomers Andre Johnson, Frank Gore fitting in fine


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Colts skill position newcomers Andre Johnson and Frank Gore have already shown a "relatively smooth" transition to their new team, Chuck Pagano told ESPN.

The wide receiver and running back performed so well in OTA work Wednesday that Pagano claimed that it appeared they had been with the organization for years.

"Pretty seamless," Pagano said about their work. "They don't miss a beat as far as the playbook goes, knowing what to do. Every time I see them in the huddle, break a huddle, to me it looks like they're going the right direction. They're lining up right. They're very talented, talented guys. They fit right into the locker room. They're professionals. ... They're not talkers. They're workers, they're doers."

Both veterans, however, have shown signs that their best days are behind them. The 33-year-old Johnson failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving last season for Houston for the first time in his last seven full seasons. The 32-year-old Gore managed another 1,000-yard performance in 2014, but his total was its lowest of any in a full season since 2008.


Saints cut AndyTanner, pick up Mike McGlynn


(5/20/2015) The Saints have parted ways with second-year receiver Andy Tanner and signed veteran guard Mike McGlynn, according to The Times-Picayune.

Tanner, who has never played in a regular season game with the Saints, has been with the franchise since 2010 as a member of the practice squad.

McGlynn was a fourth-round pick by the Eagles in 2008. He is coming off a forgettable season where he allowed the most sacks of anyone on the offensive line as a member of the Chiefs.


Jets' Richardson, Marshall not at voluntary OTA's


(5/20/2015) The Jets were without defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and wide receiver Brandon Marshall at the team's voluntary organized team activities on Wednesaday, per nj.com.

Wednesday marked the second day of the Jets' 10-day voluntary workout program. Marshall was present on the first day but Richardson was not.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Marshall was absent on Wednesday because he "had something to take care of, but "it wasn't conveyed" to him why Richardson was not there.

Richardson was the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013 and is projected to play a key role on the Jets' defense.


Packers sign WR Ty Montgomery


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) The Packers reached an agreement Wednesday with third-round draft pick Ty Montgomery , per ESPN.com. The signing of the wide receiver means the team only has one draft pick yet to reach a deal, first-rounder Demarious Randall. 

Montgomery has been described by the team as Randall Cobb-type player, so expect the Pack to use him as a return specialist early on. 


Wilkerson, Richardson, Marshall all absent at Jets' OTAs


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) The Jets kicked off more offseason training activities Wednesday without three core members of their team, as Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Brandon Marshall were all absent for the voluntary training, per ESPN.com. 

Wilkerson's absence is no surprise, as the defensive lineman is seeking a new contract from the team and has stated he won't take part in voluntary team activities. Richardson and Marshall are not involved in contract disputes.

Ravens first-round pick Perriman could be team's No. 1 receiver


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) With his speed and overall talent, the Ravens first-round pick Breshad Perriman stands a good chance of being the team's primary receiver this season. Head coach John Harbaugh may look to reduce the number of snaps for wide receiver Steve Smith in 2015, in order to limit the wear and tear, leaving Perriman a chance to showcase his skills.

"We got a guy with a tremendous amount of talent who’s only going to get better," assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said, according to ESPN.com. "I’m not going to say he’s 'elite' or this or that, but he’s a very talented guy. He’s motivated, he’s smart, it’s important to him, comes from a football family, and he’s on the come [up], and we’re going to get the most out of him as we can."

Smith, who turned 36 years old last week, had 79 catches in 2014, his first with the Ravens.


Bucs ST coach will make rookie Clay earn role as kick returner


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) When the Buccaneers drafted Utah wide receiver Kaelin Clay in the sixth round, general manager Jason Licht indicated the team's kick returner job would be Clay's to lose.

However, special teams coordinator Kevin O'Dea isn't as eager to just hand the job over to the rookie, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"First of all, we're not going to hand it to Clay," O'Dea said. "We've got other guys that are undrafted that look pretty special to me, as well."

O'Dea said fifth-round pick Kenny Bell and undrafted receivers Donteea Dye, Adam Humphries and Rannell Hall could all battle for the position.

The Bucs were eighth in the league in 2014 in punt returns (10.8 yards per return). O'Dea said the only things missing were longer blocks and a dynamic returner.

"If you stay on your guy, he'll get to the house," O'Dea said. "That's the bottom line."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jaguars coaches accept blame for poor debut of WR Marqise Lee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) The Jaguars coaching staff is accepting some of the blame for the struggles of rookie wideout Marqise Lee last season.

Injuries were certainly also to blame. He sustained an ankle injury during OTAs and battled a hamstring issue in the first half of the year while trying to learn the offense. The result was just 37 catches for 422 yards and one touchdown.

"Some of it was our fault," receivers coach Jerry Sullivan told ESPN. "We gave him too much too soon."


Jets reject rookie Devin Smith as returner - at least this year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Jets rookie Devin Smith is a burner. And burners often thrive as kick returners. But the second-round pick out of Ohio State won't get that chance - at least for now.

Special teams coach Bobby April has made that pronouncement. He has been serving in that capacity in the NFL since 1991 and he believes that speedy, unproven rookies should not be given that responsibility.

Smith returned just six kicks for the Buckeyes - one as a freshman and five as a sophomore. That's not enough of a track record for April.

"Any time you've got a rookie that hasn't done it, and you're saying, 'Let's give it a try,' it's usually not a good combination," he told NJ.com. "And your tries can end up losing you games. You almost have to know.

"Now, will there be mistakes? Of course. But if you're saying, 'Let's see if he can do it,' boy a lot of people have [tried that]. You see a lot of openers with a lot of rookies back there every year. Keep looking backward in time, a team or several teams have done that, and by Game 4, that experiment didn't work."
