Trevone Boykin
Seahawks' Trevone Boykin: Pleads guilty to misdemeanor
Trevone Boykin, QB, SEA
6/30/2016
News: Boykin pled guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest and will be available for the start of training camp, the Seattle Times reports.

Boykin was charged with assault stemming from a Dec. 31 incident in which he is alleged to have struck a police officer after being thrown out of a bar during TCU's trip to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl. According to the plea deal, he will pay a fine, perform community service and attend anger management classes. An undrafted free agent, Boykin is expected to back up Russell Wilson this season. Tarvaris Jackson, Wilson's backup the last three years, is not expected to re-sign with the Seahawks, especially after he was was arrested Friday for allegedly pulling a gun on a woman reported to be his wife.

Johnny Manziel
Johnny Manziel: Suspended four games
Johnny Manziel, QB, CLE
6/30/2016
News: The NFL has suspended Manziel four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, ESPN.com reports.

Manziel, who was released by the Browns back in March, remains a free agent, with off-field concerns continuing to cloud his NFL future. In any case, the QB won't be eligible to suit up in the NFL to start the 2016 season and at this stage it remains to be seen if/when he'll be afforded an opportunity to do so.

Andrew Luck
Colts' Andrew Luck: Signs through 2021 season
Andrew Luck, QB, IND
6/29/2016
News: Luck has signed a deal with the Colts to remain with the team through the 2021 season.

Luck, who was slated to earn $16,155,000 in 2016, gets another five years tacked onto his deal, thus solidifying the Colts' QB situation for the foreseeable future. Luck, who threw an NFL-leading 40 TD passes in 2014, missed nine games last season with various injuries, but now that he's healthy again, he's a prime bounce-back candidate this year. With the team's nucleus of pass-catchers (WRs T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett, along with TE Dwayne Allen) all 26 years old, or younger, Luck and the Indy offense as a whole should benefit from the upside and continuity the aforementioned quartet brings to the table.

Tarvaris Jackson: Arrested Friday

News: Jackson was arrested Friday on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, stemming from a reported argument with a woman, NFL.com reports.

Jackson was subsequently released from Osceola (Florida) County Jail after posting $2,500 bond. The 33-year-old QB, who served as Russell Wilson's backup in Seattle over the past three seasons, remains a free agent, with Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps currently rounding out the Seahawks' signal-caller depth chart behind Wilson.

Ryan Mallett
Ravens' Ryan Mallett: Struggles during offseason program
Ryan Mallett, QB, BAL
6/20/2016
News: Mallett's play was erratic during the offseason program, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Mallett joined the Ravens in December and ended up starting the final two games, with his performance decent enough to make him the clear favorite for the backup job this season. Despite his reported struggles during OTAs and minicamp, the former third-round selection (2011) remains a heavy favorite to serve as Joe Flacco's top backup, as the Ravens didn't put much effort into finding competition. Jerrod Johnson and Josh Johnson will also get some reps during training camp.

Joe Flacco
Ravens' Joe Flacco: Focused on arm more than knee
Joe Flacco, QB, BAL
6/19/2016
News: Flacco (knee) suggested he is more focused on his arm strength than his surgically-repaired left knee, ESPN reports.

Flacco seems to be making a quick recovery from Dec. 8 surgery to repair a torn ACL, as he's widely expected to be ready July 27 for the start of training camp, despite being a spectator for on-field activities throughout the offseason program. Though already able to sprint and make cuts, he's thrown far fewer passes than he typically would have at this point in the year, which could be cause to limit his reps during training camp. Flacco's arm strength has never been questioned and should quickly come back to him, but he did admit that there's some chance he'll feel hesitant when he has to face a live pass rush for the first time. While he's clearly on track for Week 1, his progress will be worth monitoring throughout camp and the preseason.

Logan Thomas
Giants' Logan Thomas: Signed by Giants on Friday

News: Thomas was claimed off of waivers by the Giants on Friday, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

Thomas was cut by the Dolphins on Thursday after spending the 2015-16 season on their practice squad. He now heads to New York, where he will likely be the number three quarterback behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib. The Giants waived fellow quarterback B.J. Daniels to make room for Thomas on the roster.

News: Daniels was waived by the Giants on Friday, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

Daniels signed on with the Giants in early May, hoping to secure a third-string spot behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib on the depth chart. With training camp approaching, the Giants decided to instead sign 24-year-old Logan Thomas, leaving Daniels as the odd man out.

Mark Sanchez
Broncos' Mark Sanchez: FInds competition for quarterback job
Mark Sanchez, QB, DEN
6/15/2016
News: Sanchez (thumb) is engaged in a neck-and-neck battle for Denver's top job with Trevor Siemian, The Denver Post reports.

Just a week ago, the team's official website reported that Sanchez was cementing his place as the starter. So what gives? Chalk it up to the offseason news cycle that magnifies every ebb and flow in a position battle. While Siemian does have the most experience in Denver's offense, Sanchez has a background in it and is far more playing time under his belt. Both Siemian and first-round pick Paxton Lynch are dark horses to steal the job with strong camps - Sanchez is hardly the kind of quarterback who a team can hang its hat on - but it would still be an upset at this point if the veteran didn't start the season opener against Carolina.
