WR A.J. Jenkins: 'Blessed and humbled' to be part of Cowboys
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(3:01 pm ET) The Cowboys signed former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins earlier this week, and it didn't take long for him to acknowledge he needs to make an impression soon, per The Dallas Morning News.

“I got to hurry up and make some plays and do something,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins was drafted with the 30th pick of the 2012 draft by the 49ers, but only plaed in three games as a rookie. In 2013, the 49ers traded him to the Chiefs where he played in every game but caught only eight passes. Last season he caught nine passes in nine games for the Chiefs before they released him in February.

Now, Jenkins is just happy that a tryout with the Cowboys resulted in the team giving him another shot.

“It was a lift off of my shoulders,” Jenkins said. “It really was because you don’t really know how it goes. There are a lot of guys who stay waiting for a long time and they don’t get a phone call. I’m blessed and humbled for the opportunity, and it being the Cowboys, an organization that’s known for a lot of things. I’m just happy to be a part of it.”


Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) able to practice in Thursday's OTA
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:52 pm ET) Ravens coach John Harbaugh said cornerback Jimmy Smith is "ahead of schedule" with his recovery from a Lisfranc sprain, according to ESPN.com. 

Smith was limited in practice on Thursday but was able to get some work done. 

Smith is expected to be close to full strength for training camp in August. He signed a new deal worth $41.1 million over four years this offseason. 


Colts rookie SS Clayton Geathers coming on strong
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:52 pm ET) The Colts didn't sign veteran Dwight Lowery to cool his heels on the bench, but rookie fourth round pick and fellow safety Clayton Geathers is certainly making things interesting.

Geathers has earned plenty of practice reps, including some with the first team. Chuck Pagano is impressed.

"He's further ahead," Pagano told ESPN. "He's kind of exceeded our expectations to this point."

Geathers boasts the size and athleticism to cover tight ends. He showed that at Central Florida, where he racked up 383 tackles, three interceptons, five forced fumbles and 30 passes defensed.

"We're playing him down in the box in sub-packages as a dime backer," Pagano said. "So he's learning the backend plus he's learning the sub stuff. He's been really impressive as far as picking things up. He's an athletic guy."


Saints' QB Brees on Graham: 'Can't dwell on who you don't have'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(2:47 pm ET) Saints quarterback Drew Brees lost a huge offensive weapon in tight end Jimmy Graham this offseason, but the Pro Bowler is still confident in the weapons he'll have this year, per The Times-Picayune.

"You can't dwell on who you don't have," Brees said."I love Ben Watson and Josh Hill and I feel like they can make a big impact for us."

The Saints traded Graham to the Seahawks this offseason, but added runningback C.J. Spiller, who has already impressed Brees.

"There's really nothing he can't do," Brees said of Spiller.

Graham caught 85 passes for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns last season for the Saints.


Broncos LT Ryan Clady suffers torn ACL in practice
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady suffered a torn ACL in practice on Wednesday and will probably miss the 2015 season, the team announced. 

This is a crucial blow for the Broncos offense, which will rely a lot on its offensive line under Gary Kubiak. Options to replace Clady at left tackle are Michael Schofield or rookie Ty Sambrailo.

Sambrailo was taken in the second round of the 2015 draft and Schofield was a third-round pick in the 2014 draft. 


Agent: Absence of Browns RB Duke Johnson due to family issue
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:42 pm ET) Browns running back and unsigned third-round pick Duke Johnson did not miss voluntary OTAs this week because of any contract squabble, the Northeast Ohio Media Group is reporting. Rather, he was sidelined due to a family matter.

"We did not instruct him to miss OTAs," said agent Alex Gavilla. "We're not trying to take an aggressive negotiating strategy. Duke is very close to his family and he had a personal matter to attend to. He has no plans of holding out of anything."

Johnson, who will compete with Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell for playing time, is the only one of 12 Browns draft picks to remain unsigned. But the two sides are close.

"We're looking at all of the deals that relate to Duke and just trying to find a middle ground with the team," Gavilla said. "We're in constant communication with the Browns front office and having good dialogue."


Titans WR Hakeen Nicks seeking comeback season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:28 pm ET) Fading wide receiver Hakeem Nicks claims he can still be the premier player he was with the Giants now that he is wearing a Titans uniform. But he also understands that he must prove it.

"(I'm) motivated, determined and ready to work," he told The Tennessean. "I am ready to bring it all and lay it on the line, man. I just want to get back in the rhythm of being talked about as one of the best receivers in the league, as I was in the past. ... I need to go out there and prove it. No need to say words."

Nicks enjoyed successive 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011 and tallied 24 touchdowns in his first three years in the NFL. But he faded to the point in which he caught a career-low 38 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns a year ago.

"I feel like where I am at in my career - I just turned 27 - I feel like I still have a lot in my tank," he said. "I wanted to go somewhere and prove I can still be a No. 1 receiver and be the guy I was in the past, statistically and being a guy that likes to make plays and be on the feld consistently.

"With six years of experience, playoff experience and a Super Bowl, I thnk I can definitely bring (leadership) to a team. And I want to compete for Super Bowl teams here."


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles wants to play another six years
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(1:45 pm ET) Jamaal Charles is 29 but hasn't showed any signs of slowing down. 

In his battle to prove that you can hit the 30-year mark in age and still be a capable running back in the NFL, Charles said it's his goal to continue playing this game for an additional half-decade.

“I want to play another six years so, my form is to keep on taking my diet," Charles said, via the Chiefs' official team site. "I’m seeing guys at 37 or 38 still playing football in the trenches and that’s somewhere where you don’t want to play. So I just want to change the game with the running backs. I want this to last longer and then when I retire, I’ll be happy with where I end my career at.”

Charles ran for 1,033 yards and nine touchdowns while going for 291 receiving yards and five touchdowns. 


Eagles' Chip Kelly on Tim Tebow: 'He's a quarterback'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:29 pm ET) There's no longer a mystery as to what the Eagles brought Tim Tebow in to do. He's a quarterback.

Coach Chip Kelly said the team is not looking for Tebow to play another position, per NFL.com.

"He's a quarterback," Kelly said. "That's how we're looking at Timmy. We're not looking at him at any other position."

Kelly emphasized that Tebow has improved behind center.

"You guys will see him today. Watch him throw. I think he's improved," Kelly said of Tebow. "He's spent a lot of time in the last few years in terms of working on his game."

Tebow hasn't played in the NFL since 2012.


Kelly: 'We've to plenty of time' to wait for Eagles QB Sam Bradford
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:20 pm ET) Chip Kelly has stated that Eagles presumed starting quarterback Sam Bradford must get back on the field and prove something before he is proclaimed as such.

It hasn't happened yet. He was limited in workouts this spring and has been absent from OTA drills, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. Chief competitor Mark Sanchez has recieved the first-team reps instead.

Bradford is just nine months removed from a torn ACL, his second in two seasons. Kelly stated that Bradford is on schedule with his rehab and could do some 7-on-7 work next week.

"We've got plenty of time," Kelly added.
