Bengals' Vontaze Burfict may start year on PUP


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict's rehab may not be progressing as quickly as the team had hoped.

Burfict had microfracture knee surgery and initial post-surgery reports said that he could be recovered by the start of training camp. 

This week, the team's website said that Burfict's status was "up in the air" and that a return by the start of the season would be a "tight call".

If Burfict isn't ready by the opener, the Bengals may choose to put him on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. 


Report: Cardinals' Daryl Washington unsure of NFL standing


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington is approaching the one-year mark for his suspension though his NFL status is still in limbo. 

But according to a report from FOX Sports 910 in Phoenix, Washington is unsure about his status with the league. He was suspended a year ago on May 30, 2014 for being a multiple offender of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. 

However, he was expected to apply for reinstatement a month ago but did not do so. 

Assuming Washington is reinstated to the NFL at some point he will likely be subjected to punishment under the NFL's domestic violence policy. On March 24, 2014, he pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend. 


Union: Goodell must back off hearing of Patriots QB Tom Brady


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith is growing impatient awaiting word from Roger Goodell on the request of the NFL commissioner to recuse himself as arbitrator of the appeal hearings ofPatriots quarterback Tom Brady.

The league suspended Brady for the first four games next season for his alleged role in the Deflategate scandal, claiming that he likely knew that game balls were being deflated for his benefit before the 2014 AFC title game.

Smith is claiming that neither Goodell nor the Wells Report, which investigated the incident, could legitimately claim impartiality. He added that the NFLPA will "advance the volume" of the request if they don't hear from Goodell by next week. Part of the union's press release reads as follows:

Given a process that has contained procedural violations of our collective bargaining agreement, the Commissioner's role as a central witness in the appeal hearing and his evident partiality with respect to the Wells report, the Commissioner must designate a neutral party to serve as arbitrator in this matter. The players also believe that the Commissioner's history of inconsistently issuing discipline against our players makes him ill-suited to hear this appeal in a fair-minded manner.

As for the Wells Report, Smith stated that "you can't really have credibility just because you slap the word independent on a piece of paper." He offered into evidence the findings in regard to NFL official Walt Anderson, who was a key figure in the investigation, citing one part of the report questions his memory and another credits it.


Report: Bills still want to extend Marcell Dareus


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The Bills still want to extend the contract of defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, according to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

Despite the one-game suspension levied by the league against Dareus on Thursday, the team still hopes to have an extension wrapped up before the start of training camp. 

2015 is scheduled to be the last season of Dareus' current contract. He'll make $8.06 million.


Report: Jaguars' Dante Fowler to have ACL surgery next week


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Jaguars rookie defensive lineman Dante Fowler will have surgery next week to repair a torn ACL sustained in rookie minicamp, according to the Florida Times-Union

Fowler was injured during an 11-on-11 drill during his first practice with the Jaguars on May 8. He'll miss the entire 2015 season. Fowler is still with the team participating in strength and conditioning exercises. 

Fowler is expected to remain in Jacksonville to rehab his knee. 


Bills DT Marcell Dareus suspended by NFL for banned substance


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The Bills will be hosting Indianapolis in Week 1 of the 2015 season. But Buffalo defensive tackle Marcell Dareus will not be participating.

Dareus has been suspended by the league for the opener for violating its substance abuse policy, Fox Sports has reported. He released the following statement that confirmed it.

Last year, I made a mistake involving possession of a banned substance. The NFL's discipline for this conduct is part of the drug policy, and I apologize to my family, my teammates, the entire Bills organization and Bills fans that I will miss one game as a result of my mistake. I will work intensely that week and will be extremely happy to contribute to a win in Week 2 for the Bills.

The loss of Dareus is significant, at least for that game. He racked up 48 tackles and 10 sacks a year ago.


Derek Carr's agent said Raiders QB won't need surgery


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Derek Carr's agent, Tim Younger, said the Raiders quarterback will not need surgery on his injured right ring finger, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

It was previously reported by ESPN that surgery was a potential option for Carr. 

“I don’t know where this idea came up that he’s going to be having surgery,” Younger said. “The situation, I don’t even want to call it an injury, is very minor, and we’re just being cautious.”

Carr has been held out of team activities to start the offseason. 


Jets' Darrelle Revis won't defend Pats' Tom Brady on Deflategate


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Darrelle Revis is in a unique position when it comes to the Deflategate controversy.

When the initial allegation was made following the AFC Championship, Revis was a member of the Patriots and teammates with Tom Brady. Now he's back on the Jets and a rival of the team he won a Super Bowl with this past season. 

When asked by the New York Daily News about the issue, Revis didn't say his old teammate should get a pass

"Everybody's blowing it up because it is Tom Brady," Revis said. "I understand that. But if (the NFL) feels he did the crime or he did something and they want to penalize them, then that's that. (The Patriots) have a history of doing stuff. You can't hide that. ... Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past."

Revis added that if Brady wins his appeal and his suspension is reduced it should be due to new evidence, not because of who he is in relation to the NFL's brand. 

"If I fail a drug test, then I fail a drug test. If I get a DUI, I get a DUI," Revis said. "If Tom gets caught with a DUI, it's a DUI. ... If they are saying that he did what he's done, then the suspension is the suspension. I'm not the commissioner and don't make the rules. If they want to change (the suspension) based on new information or new evidence, then okay, but it should have nothing to do with Tom being the face (of the NFL)."


Bruce Arians: Palmer knows 'the clock's ticking' on winning


(5/20/2015) Cardinals' head coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer understands the window to win now is getting slimmer, according to NFL.com.

"He knows the clock's ticking," Arians said Tuesday, via the team's official website. "It is for a lot of guys on this team. You get a window to make a run and most of it depends on your quarterback. Right now, it's our window. There is a sense of urgency."

The Cardinals were 8-1 last season before Palmer went down with a season-ending ACL tear.


Jets OC Gailey: Geno Smith 'probably' Week 1 starter at QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said there would not be a quarterback competition during training camp and that incumbent QB Geno Smith would "probably" be the team's starter during Week 1 of the regular season, per the Daily News

Smith, who threw for 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago, figured to be locked in a battle with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starter's role, instead will go into camp with the job his to lose, according to Gailey. 

"You see an awful lot of talent there … he can be pretty good if he can get it all together," Gailey said. 


Report: Raiders QB Derek Carr dealing with right ring finger injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is reportedly dealing with a right ring finger injury that may require surgery, according to ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.

Carr, who missed the first day of OTAs Tuesday, may miss the rest of the activities but is optimistic about training camp, according to the report. Carr threw for 3,270 yards with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer kept out of 11-on-11 drills


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was kept out of 11-on-11 drills during the first day of organized team activities on Tuesday, per ESPN.

Palmer, who is six months removed from surgery to repair a torn left ACL, was limited to 7-on-7 drills instead on Tuesday.

"Just felt good to not be around cones and hurdles, and step overs and all the different on-field things that we've been using -- bags," Palmer said. "It felt good to be around other humans and going 7-on-7 and have that competition, that speed, that quickness of the game because I got a lot of work to do, a long way to go."

Palmer added that he'll play the entire season with a knee brace.

"I've been politicking with the trainers and the physical trainers because 12 plays just isn't enough for me and I need more action out there," Palmer said.


Raiders QB Derek Carr misses first OTAs practice due to injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was absent from the first full-team practice during OTAs on Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, according to the Associated Press.

Coach Jack Del Rio did not further comment on Carr's status since he said it is not in his policy to discuss offseason injuries. He only said Carr was one of a handful of players who could not partake in practice.

Carr started all 16 games as a rookie in 2014. He completed 58.1 percent of his passes for 3,270 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He had a 76.6 quarterback rating as the Raiders went 3-13.


Healthy NaVorro Bowman impressing 49ers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman is doing on-field work, as he recovers from a serious knee injury. 

"Bowman is looking great," coach Jim Tomsula said, per 49ers.com. "I’d say we’re treating Bow more like a vet than a post-injury vet."


Ravens' Dennis Pitta confident he'll return from injury


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta is returning from his second hip dislocation and fracture in the last two years. He said he's "optimistic" that he'll be back for the season. 

"I feel good, but obviously, it's a process," Pitta said, per NFL.com. "I have an idea in mind of where I'd like to be in a couple months, but at the same time you don't know. I know what it felt like to do this one time. I've never known what it felt like to do it twice."


Ravens FS Terrence Brooks planning on playing in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) The Ravens will not disregard Terrence Brooks when planning how their free safety position shakes out this season. He is optimistic about returning to action at some point.

Brooks tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last December against Jacksonville. He has declared that he has made steady progress since his surgery and has not ruled out playing in 2015. He will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and will avoid rushing back before he's ready, but he believes he's in good shape at this point.

"Its going really good," he told the Baltimore Sun. "To be honest, we're probably a little bit ahead of schedule. I haven't had a break since I've been hurt. It's been straight rehab since (surgery)."

The third-round pick in 2014 contributed 19 tackles, two passes defensed and a fumble recovery in 11 games (no starts) before going down.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The statement from the NFL read, "Commissioner Goodell will hear the appeal of Tom Brady's suspension in accordance with the process agreed upon with the NFL Players Association in the 2011 collective bargaining agreement."

NFLPA files appeal on behalf of Patriots QB Tom Brady


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Citing perceived inconsistencies in previous disciplinary rulings by the league, the NFL Players Association has filed an appeal on behalf of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The move was certainly expected.

Brady has been suspended four games for his alleged role in Deflategate. The Wells Report based on an investigation ordered by the league claimed it was "more probable than not" that he had knowledge of footballs being deflated for his benefit before the AFC title game against Indianapolis.

The NFLPA has called for a neutral arbitrator to hear the appeal. It further stated that if the evidence that went into the Wells Report is "direct" and "inculpatory" then the NFL should have no qualms about presenting its case before an independent judge.


Giants' Spagnuolo on Eagles' Bradford: He'll do great things


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo drafted Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford when Spagnuolo was the coach of the Rams in 2010 and he said Bradford will be successful in Philadelphia, reports 97.5 FM The Fanatic.

"I know he's going to do great things there in Philadelphia," he said. "He's a better athlete than most people think. Trust me when I tell you he's got all the skills, and I keep going back to the fierce competitor because I believe elite quarterbacks in this league have that."

Spagnuolo cited Bradford's ability to make all the throws and his passion for football for his confidence in Bradford.

"I think he's in a great system there," Spagnuolo said. "What Chip [Kelly] does and what he'll do with him. His arm is top notch. I still remember the workouts in Oklahoma, and he was outstanding."


Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch says he's over knee injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) When fans ask Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch about his health heading into the season, Tulloch has a simple answer for them, reports ESPN.com.

"I ask them if they like watching the games," Tulloch said. "They say, 'Yeah.' They ask, 'Are you healthy?' I say, 'Do you like watching football?' They say, 'Yeah.' I say, 'Yeah, I'm healthy.'

Tulloch tore his ACL while celebrating a sack in Week 3 and he missed the rest of the season. He said the offseason has gone well and he is looking forward to playing in 2015.

"Man, it's exciting," he said. "I'm excited about it. It's a blessing to be able to bounce back the way that I have and to be able to feel as good as I feel to be able to get out there, run around and do my thing."


Noted attorney Kessler hired to help with Tom Brady appeal


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Embattled Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has taken one major step in following through with an appeal of his Deflategate suspension.

Brady and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) have answered by hiring noted labor attorney Jeffrey Kessler to help with the expected appeal, The Associated Press has reported. Kessler has a long history of success in litigating sports antitrust cases. He was also instrumental in helping establish free agency in the NFL.

The veteran quarterback has until 5 p.m. Thursday to file the appeal.

The NFL has banned Brady for the first four games of the 2015 season after the Wells Report concluded that he was likely aware that footballs were being deflated for his benefit before the AFC Championship game against Indianapolis.

The NFL not only suspended Brady, but fined the Patriots $1 million and stripped them of a first-round draft pick in 2016 and fourth-rounder the following year.

Brady agent Don Yee has made it quite clear that his client plans to appeal.

"I am very confident the Wells Report will be exposed as an incredibly frail exercise in fact-finding and logic," Yee claimed via the Indianapolis Star. "The NFL has a well-documented history of making poor disciplinary decisions that often are overturned when truly independent and neutral judges or arbitrators preside."

Wells fought back at allegations that his investigation was biased.

"The conclusions in the report represent the independent opinion of me personally and my team, and those conclusions were not influenced in any way, shape or form by anyone at the league office," Wells claimed.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz continues to make progress from knee surgery after beginning to make cuts on his surgically-repaired knee, reports NJ.com.

"We got [to cutting]," Cruz said. "We started running some intermediate routes on air and stuff like that. It's feeling good. It's feeling good so far. I think I'm 75-80 percent right now. It's just a matter of building it."

Cruz missed the final 10 games of the season after he tore his patellar tendon. He previously said he intends to be ready for Week 1, but he said he still needs to build up confidence his knee.

"More running on air, continuing to build on that foundation, continuing to build more mental confidence on my knee and what it can do and take it from there," Cruz said.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) The Jaguars have signed No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler to his rookie contract, the team announced on Tuesday. It's a four-year deal worth $23.5 million.

Texans QB Ryan Mallett: I'm ready to go


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett finally got his chance to start in the league last season. Unfortunately, his starting opportunity was cut short after three games when he tore a pectoral muscle. Mallet said on Monday he's finally back to healthy after rehabbing the injury, according to ESPN.com.

"I'm ready to go," Mallet replied. "I'm still getting better every day. I don't feel any restrictions. It's about me. It's about managing and being smart with my body. Just doing the right thing as we progress. I need to play in August, September, and those months. Not April right now, you know?"

Mallet is expected to split first team reps with newcomer Brian Hoyer in OTAs at quarterback.
