Giants' Odell Beckham says he played with hamstring tears


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:24 am ET) Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham said he played all season with two tears in his hamstrings, according to the New York Daily News.

Beckham took part in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, but admitted he's still not fully healed. Beckham said the injuries prevented him from getting to that "last gear that I wanted to have." He added that the injuries really bothered him against the Eagles and Colts. Beckham said he was "stumbling" and falling over during those games. He added that he's not sure whether he'll ever be 100 percent again.

The rookie had a tremendous season, hauling in 91 balls for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns. 


Browns extremely thin -- and short -- at wide receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) With wideout Josh Gordon facing a one-year suspension, the Browns are dangerously thin at receiver entering 2015. ESPN.com notes the Browns have two returning slot receivers in Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel and "an undersized situational receiver" in 5-10 Travis Benjamin.

Miles Austin is scheduled for unrestricted free agency after catching 47 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games. Tight end Jordan Cameron also is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

Hawkins, a 5-7, 180-pounder, led the team with 63 grabs for 824 yards, with two touchdowns. Cleveland failed to add a wideout in last year's draft but almost certainly must address the position in the 2015 draft.


New optimism regarding Justin Blackmon's potential return


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) A lot of people inside the NFL are optimistic Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon is "overcoming his issues" and will be back in the league in 2015, reports Fox Sports. Blackmon got suspended in November 2013 following his third violation of the league's substance-abuse policy.

He checked into a treatment facility last September. General manager Dave Caldwell said recently he hopes Blackmon wins reinstatement, but is not counting on it.


Reports: Josh Gordon tests positive again, facing 1-year ban


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Browns wideout Josh Gordon tested positive for alcohol and "now will be subject to a one-year banishment," sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gordon was suspended for the first 10 games this season for a repeat violation of the league's drug policy.

Pro Football Talk reports that because of Gordon's past DUI, alcohol was one of the substances for which he was being tested. The website said a one-year suspension is likely a "done deal."

The Browns also suspended Gordon for missing a Saturday walkthrough before the regular-season finale, and CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported then the Browns might be ready to part ways with the ultra-talented 23-year-old.

The Browns released the following statement regarding the news: 

"Clearly we are very disappointed to hear the latest report regarding Josh. At this point, due to the confidential nature of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, we have not been made aware by the league of a failed test. We are in the process of gathering more information and will provide further comment at the appropriate time."


Packers' Sam Shields thinks Dez Bryant caught the ball


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Along with the Cowboys, Packers cornerback Sam Shields said he also believes wide receiver Dez Bryant made the catch during the fourth quarter of the NFC divisional game, reports ESPN.

While Shields initially said 'The refs made a good call on that,' he now admits Bryant secured the ball properly.

"It was a catch," Shields said. "But the new rule and at the last minute what happened, that's what the refs came up with. I never said he didn't catch it. He made a helluva catch I was in great coverage. Like I said, it was good on good and he came up with the catch."


Matthew Slater: NFLPA 'instructed' Pats not to address Deflategate


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Patriots special teamer Matthew Slater told reporters that the NFL Players Association has "instructed" New England players to not publicly address Deflategate, according to the team's official website. The 29-year-old Slater is a team representative for the union.

"I'd love to get into that with you, but we have been instructed by our union as players to reserve comment on this situation," Slater said. "It's an ongoing investigation, so in order to protect our players, we’re going to go ahead and not talk about that."

The NFL found 11 of 12 game balls the Patriots used in the first half in Sunday's AFC Championship against the Colts were significantly underinflated after being deemed legal before the game. The investigation is being led by NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash and Ted Wells. The league has yet to release its findings.

Coach Bill Belichick also addressed the media in an impromptu press conference to reveal that his team conducted an "internal study," which revealed that the Patriots "followed every rule to the letter."

Like Slater, Belichick vowed not to speak on Deflategate again. New England will square off against Seattle in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.


WR Emmanuel Sanders says Peyton Manning will return to Broncos


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.

Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.

"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."

Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.

"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.


QB Romo doing his part to convince Cowboys to keep Murray, Bryant


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said Friday he is doing everything in his power to convince owner Jerry Jones to lock up running back DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant to long-term contracts, per The Dallas Morning News.

“I’m pretty consistently [talking to Jones], and everyone around the building, about bringing them both back,” Romo said on 103.3 [KESN-FM]. “I think everybody understands how great these guys are and how lucky we are to have them.

“Any time you get talented guys where you can put more than two on one side of the ball, you get three, four, if you’re lucky enough to ever get five, it’s one of those things where if you can put a group like that together you can make a run and be very difficult for teams to deal with for years.

“I think that’s what you’re trying to build ultimately is to have sustained success. We have an opportunity to have that.”


Lions' Caldwell feels Tate can surpass Pro Bowl numbers in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Lions Pro Bowl receiver Golden Tate had a career year in 2014, posting 99 catches for 1,331 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games. While his numbers were impressive, coach Jim Caldwell feels Tate could be in for an even better campaign in 2015, per the Detroit Free Press.

"It doesn't take a whole year to determine what a guy can do from a schematic standpoint, but I do think that what happens is, guys get more comfortable within the system from quarterback to offensive line to running backs to all those involved, and you should see an uptick," Caldwell said Wednesday at the Senior Bowl. "If we're not playing better than we played this year then obviously all of us are going to be disappointed about that. So I would anticipate in every phase that we're going to be able to improve."

Caldwell said Tate's role probably won't change much, but he added the Lions should be more balanced when Tate and wide receiver Calvin Johnson are on the field at the same time. Johnson missed some time in 2014 due to an ankle injury.

"Golden had a superb year with 99 catches and just did an incredible job on third down for us," Caldwell said. "Was a great leader for us as well. Stepped into some very, very difficult situations and certainly gave us an opportunity."


Cards' Bidwill 'feeling confident' new deal for Fitzgerald will happen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said last week he believed contract talks with the agent for wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald were going well, and he delivered another positive message Thursday when providing an update on the contract negotiations. Fitzgerald's contract for 2015 has a salary cap number of $23.6 million.

"I think there is definitely mutual interest in getting something worked out," Bidwill said Thursday during a radio interview, per the team's official website. "Larry and I have had conversations. I know he's had conversations with (coach) Bruce (Arians) and (general manager) Steve Keim. (Larry) is traveling right now, but I think at the appropriate time we'll get this worked out.

"I know our fans are anxious and lot of media is out there talking, but I'd just say, everyone, relax a little bit. We'll get this worked out. I feel good about it. My goal from the beginning was to have Larry Fitzgerald retire as a Cardinal when he is ready to retire many years from now. I am feeling confident something will get worked out."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey wouldn't say Wednesday whether receiver Mike Wallace will be back with the team next season, reports the Palm Beach Post. Wallace, who's under contract for $9.9 million in 2015, got benched in the season finale for reportedly complaining to coaches about the game plan and his involvement in it.

Wallace tied his career high with 10 touchdowns but posted just 862 receiving yards.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Colston has a cap number of $9.7 million in the upcoming season and $10.5 million in 2016.

Colts' Reggie Wayne, Cory Redding unsure about future


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne and defensive end Cory Redding remain undecided about their futures in Indianapolis and with football.

The 36-year-old Wayne was held without a catch in Sunday's AFC Championship Game defeat in New England and will have surgery in the offseason on his injured triceps. However, Wayne told reporters Monday he will spend some with family away from the game before deciding on his immediate future with the Colts, according to Tom James of the Tribune Star.

Redding, a 12-year veteran, plans to do the same. He totaled 35 tackles in 2014 including 3 1/2 sacks.


Randall Cobb would like to return to Packers as free agency looms


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was trying to hold back emotions Monday while talking to reporters a day after Green Bay lost to Seattle in the NFC title game. Amid the questioning, Cobb -- who will be a free agent in the offseason -- was asked if he would be back with the Packers, but he sounded unsure about his future with the team.

"I haven't signed on the dotted line yet," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "So I can't be for certain on anything. I can only take it day by day. And that's pretty much it."

Cobb said he would like to return to Green Bay.

"I mean, of course. I think I've made that obvious," he said. "Like I've aid before this is a business. You don't know how it's going to go, what direction it is going to go in. You just have to sit around. Hopefully I have put myself in a position where it will handle itself. But only time can tell.

"It's a business. I guess we will have to wait and see."


Patriots get the best of Colts' Hilton in two matchups this season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) In two losses against the Patriots this season, including Sunday's 45-7 loss in the AFC title game, Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton was bottled up offensively. Hilton had just three catches for 24 yards in a 42-20 loss Nov. 16 and had one catch for 36 yards Sunday.

"Coach (Bill) Belichick, he did the same thing, had the same game plan -- Kyle Arrington on me, (safety Devin McCourty) over the top," Hilton said, per ESPN. "They took away everything. When I tried to go across the middle, they had the linebackers drop. The linebackers hit me to try to disrupt me. It pretty much was the same game plan as last time. They did a pretty good job of taking me away." 

Patriot coach Bill Belichick praised Arrington's effort against Hilton, who is headed to the Pro Bowl after totaling 82 catches for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season. 

"You know Kyle really stepped up; played T.Y. good," Belichick said. "T.Y. is a great receiver. He’s got outstanding speed and quickness, and he’s a tough guy to cover on all routes: short, intermediate, deep. He had a great catch on the sideline dragging his feet. It was a perfect throw and a great catch. But that’s what it’s like playing against them. But Kyle competed really well. He jammed, and he and Devin did a real good job on T.Y."


Colts WR Reggie Wayne to have offseason surgery for triceps injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne was in no mood to talk about potentially returning for a 15th NFL season after Indianapolis lost 45-7 in the AFC title game Sunday at New England.

"I haven't thought about that. We just lost," Wayne said Sunday, per ESPN.

Wayne did mention he will have offseason surgery for a torn triceps

"I don’t have a date set yet, but it's definitely on the calendar somewhere," he said. "At the end of the year, I felt the best I felt all year. Felt really good, felt really good tonight."

Wayne got off to a quick start in 2014, totaling 23 catches for 307 yards and one touchdown in four September games. However, his numbers quickly declined, especially after suffering an elbow injury in an Oct. 19 game against the Bengals. It was later revealed that Wayne -- who missed only one game -- was dealing with a torn triceps. He finished the season with 64 catches for 779 yards and two touchdowns.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
