LaRon Landry dealing with 'soft-tissue' injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Colts safety LaRon Landry missed voluntary workouts and mandatory minicamp with what the team called a "soft-tissue" injury, reports ESPN.com. He's coming off a disappointing first season in Indianapolis in which he made 87 tackles and no interceptions.

The website said the Colts need a big year from Landry after the departure of fellow safety Antoine Bethea.

"The thing with LaRon is and I know [coach] Chuck (Pagano) alluded to it, he's a guy that his throttle is always full-bore," general manager Ryan Grigson told the website. "He's out there in parts unknown working out. We trust him in the fact that we know he's going to go harder than anyone."


Marquise Goodwin ticketed for change-of-pace role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) The Bills view speedy receiver Marquise Goodwin as a change-of-pace option behind Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Mike Williams, according to WGR550.com. A former track star, Goodwin averaged 23.6 yards on his 17 receptions last year, scoring three touchdowns.

Mike Williams expected to be No. 3 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods are projected as the Bills' top two receivers, with Mike Williams expected to see the field in three-receiver sets, reports WGR550.com. Still, coaches view Williams "as a potential instant contributor and someone who could help EJ Manuel in both the red zone and as a player with high-pointing ability on all areas of the field," the report said.

Kendall Wright working out with Robert Griffin III


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright returned to Baylor to work out with his former college quarterback, the Redskins' Robert Griffin III, reports the Tennessean. Wright posted a picture of himself with Griffin and another former Baylor wideout, the Cowboys' Terrance Williams.

"Good grind session with my bros … where it all started at BU," wrote Wright, who caught 94 passes for 1,079 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Aaron Rodgers talks up tight end Richard Rodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) The Packers are unsettled at tight end, which means rookie Richard Rodgers could emerge as an option. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers certainly liked throwing to the 6-4, 257-pounder in the spring, and Richard Rodgers could be the starter "sooner rather than later," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"When we made the pick, some of the so-called experts on the draft channel said he was a late sixth-round pick ... which is pretty laughable when you watch the talent he's got and the ability," Aaron Rodgers said. "You have to be excited about his body type and the hands.

"He's made some incredible catches, makes it look easy. I think he's going to push for some playing time if he can transfer what he's done in the spring now to the fall and have the potential to be an impact player."

Richard Rodgers ran a 4.87 forty coming out of California, two-tenths of a second slower than Jermichael Finley ran back in 2008, and often lined up in the slot in college, the paper said.


Jermichael Finley still hoping to return to Packers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Free agent tight end Jermichael Finley told ESPN.com he's working as hard as he can to return to the Packers. While Finley said this is the best he's felt "during this entire crazy process," he has yet to be cleared by team doctors.

Finley underwent neck fusion surgery last fall.


Ryan Kerrigan planning to stay with Redskins long-term


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan is under contract through 2015 after the team picked up his option. The 2011 first-round pick envisions staying in Washington beyond that.

"I’ve worked hard these past few years to be the best I can for the team and for the organization," he told the Muncie Star Press of Indiana. "I’m going to be a part of it for at least an additional year and hopefully after that, even longer."

Kerrigan has 24.5 sacks over his first three years.


Byron Bell, Nate Chandler competing for left tackle job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) With Jordan Gross' retirement, the Panthers will have a new left tackle in 2014. The team's website says the competition is between Byron Bell, who started 14 games at right tackle last year, and Nate Chandler, who started six games at guard and two at right tackle.

Chandler is a converted defensive lineman who went undrafted out of UCLA in 2012.


Baylor coach wants to help Josh Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Baylor coach Art Briles told Sirius XM NFL Radio he wants to help troubled Browns receiver Josh Gordon, a former Baylor standout who's staring at a long suspension by the NFL.

"Everybody’s different in the world and that’s what makes it so unique and everybody’s got special talents and gifts," Briles said. "Josh certainly has a tremendous amount of physical talent and intellectual gifts. We all just hope and pray that he’ll be able to get through everything and finally reach his full potential. The thing about Josh that’s so unique is he’s still young, he just turned 23. His future is ahead. He’s going to be judged by everything that’s happened, but he still has a great future ahead and that’s the way he needs to approach the situation. When you’re in our family, you’re always in so we’ll do whatever we can do to help him be successful in his life."


Shawn Lauvao trying to fit in with Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Redskins guard Shawn Lauvao is adjusting well to his new team, offensive line coach Chris Foerster said. Lavao came over from the Browns and is expected to start at left guard next to Trent Williams.

"He got better every day," Foerster said of Lauvao's work at mandatory minicamp and OTAs. "It was all new to him. He needs to get out there and play. He’s more of a practice guy; he needs to be out there doing it.

"Trent [Williams] can make a lot of guys look good when they play next to him. He’s doing a good job with Shawn teaching him how to do things and [Lauvao] made huge strides from voluntary minicamp."


Antwan Barnes 'probably' ready for camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Jets linebacker Antwan Barnes, who blew out his knee in Week 5, said he "probably" will be ready for training camp, reports The Star-Ledger. Playing mainly in passing situations, Barnes had two sacks and a team-high 12 quarterback hits before suffering the injury.


Jeremy Butler a prospect worth watching


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Ravens receiver Jeremy Butler, an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee-Martin, has made a strong early impression, reports the Baltimore Sun. The 6-2, 218-pounder "is an imposing downfield target with size, strength and leaping ability working in his favor," the report said, adding coaches view Butler as "an intriguing developmental prospect."

During minicamp, Butler ran with the second-team offense while other rookies worked on a separate field.

"I would say I bring versatility in the schemes and being able to play all over the passing game," Butler told the paper. "I make the plays downfield in the deep game. I go across the middle. I enjoy the dirty work and like the short, quick game.

"I bring that physicality to the table and overpower defenders. I'm just a hard-nosed Ravens style player. I can bring that element to the offense."


Rookie Preston Brown has big opportunity


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) With linebacker Kiko Alonso (ACL) likely done for the year, Bills third-round rookie Preston Brown could win a starting job, reports the Buffalo News. Brown "was outstanding at the team’s voluntary workouts and minicamp," the paper said, and "coaches raved behind the scenes about how well Brown practiced."

Brown led Louisville in tackles in 2013 for the second straight year as he made 98 stops, 12.5 for loss, while adding 4.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He'll vie with Keith Rivers and Nigel Bradham to replace Alonso.


Browns seeking extension with Jordan Cameron


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Browns general manager Ray Farmer wants to sign tight end Jordan Cameron to a contract extension before training camp, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. However, the likelihood is negotations will continue long after camp opens.

Cameron, entering the final year of his rookie deal, figures to be Cleveland's top pass-catching threat, assuming Josh Gordon is suspended. Cameron caught 80 passes and made the Pro Bowl last year after making 26 receptions in his first two seasons combined.

Cameron reportedly has turned down several offers from the Browns so far.


Brian Cushing can't put timetable on return to the field


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing didn't practice this spring and hasn't put on pads in a game since Oct. 20. That's when he tore a knee ligament and broke his fibula.

While he vowed to be ready for the season opener, Cushing would not put a timetable on his return to the practice field. "I know when it’s go-time, and I need to ramp it up and get on the field, I’ll be there," he told the team's website.

"I’m still working out every day," he added. "I’m just trying to be the best I can possibly be, come time for the camp. Come time for the season. The training staff’s done an unbelievable job."


Tyrone Crawford viewed as starter material


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) The Cowboys believe Tyrone Crawford is "ready to start" at left defensive end, "but want to see him earn the spot in training camp," reports the Dallas Morning News. Crawford, 24, missed last season with a torn Achilles' tendon but reportedly has recovered.

He'll push George Selvie for the starting job. In 2012, Crawford made 20 tackles while appearing in every game.


Jordan Todman likely to return kickoffs again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Jordan Todman, the Jaguars' No. 2 running back, figures to get the first shot at returning kickoffs, reports the Florida Times-Union. Todman returned 26 kicks for a 27.4-yard average last year, incuding a 59-yarder.

Todman was one of seven Jaguars to return a kickoff last year, though he quickly won the job and helped Jacksonville rank third in kick return average.


Emmanuel Sanders enjoying 'wide receiver heaven'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) New Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders told Sirius XM NFL Radio he feels like he "made it into wide receiver heaven." Sanders can't wait to play with Peyton Manning in Denver's pass-happy offense.

He'll be a top target along with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and tight end Julius Thomas.

"The thing that I like about the Broncos is there is really no No. 1 guy," Sanders said. "Peyton always goes with the favorable matchup and that's what I'm really liking about this offense. Any guy could go off for 180 yards or 100 yards with 10 catches any week, week in and week out, just based off of matchups."


Report: Deal likely between Josh Gordon, NFL


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) It's likely a deal will be worked out between Browns receiver Josh Gordon and the NFL over Gordon's punishment for alleged failed drug tests and his recent DUI arrest, according to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman. "It may not be a full season," sources told Freeman. "But the number of games Gordon will be suspended is still a mystery."

The report said some of Gordon's teammates feel betrayed by his actions and now "want nothing to do with him."

Pro Football Talk reported earlier that Gordon has an appeal hearing with the league scheduled for later this month.


Junior Galette gambles on himself


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette can void his contract beyond 2014 if he records at least 12 sacks and plays more than 60 percent of the team's defensive snaps this season, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Those numbers are very reachable.

The former undrafted free agent broke out in 2013, registering 12 sacks in his first season as a full-time starter.


Matt Flynn no lock to hold off Scott Tolzien


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Matt Flynn is the Packers' backup quarterback as of now, but Scott Tolzien could overtake him by the end of August, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The paper called Tolzien "the younger arm with the higher ceiling."

Brandon Bolden in danger of getting cut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Patriots running back Brandon Bolden is not projected to make the team, according to the Boston Globe. Bolden ran for 271 yards and three touchdowns and caught 21 passes for 152 yards last year.

But he's battled injuries and he lacks "top-end long speed to make big plays," the paper said.


James White 'a threat for touches in every phase'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Patriots rookie running back James White could end up taking away touches from Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen, reports the Boston Globe. White "has quick burst and patience to wait for blocks to develop, a combination that often leads to positive yards," the paper said, noting White fumbled only twice in college.

A sixth-round pick out of Wisconsin, White "also has soft hands as a receiver and sound blocking technique in pass protection, making him a threat for touches in every phase of the game."

The paper projects White as the No. 3 back, ahead of Roy Finch and James Develin.


Aaron Dobson's foot 'getting better every day'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson, who had foot surgery in March, sounds confident he'll be available during training camp, reports the Boston Herald. "It’s doing better, man," he said. "It’s getting better every day. Every week it’s getting better, so we’re just going to see where it’s at by the time camp starts."

Dobson caught 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. He's tried to stay mentally sharp despite missing offseason workouts.

"You’ve got to keep yourself focused on what your job is," he said. "I know I can’t go out there and physically do it, but mentally you’ve got to be there. That’s the biggest part is just being there mentally because it’s easy for yourself to slip. So you’ve just got to stay on top of yourself and be responsible, really, and do your job."


Josh Morgan agrees to community service


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/9/2014) Bears receiver Josh Morgan, who was accused of assaulting a valet driver in April, has agreed to do community service to have the charge against him vacated, reports Comcast Sports Net.

The report says Morgan has agreed to 32 hours of community service, and they must be completed within four months. If Morgan complies with the terms of the program, the misdemeanor assault charge against him will be erased from his record.

Morgan is competing to be the No. 4 receiver for the Bears behind Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Marquess Wilson.
