Rams QB coach is a big fan of Sam Bradford
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:53 am ET) Rams quarterbacks coach Chris Weinke is perfectly happy with starting quarterback Sam Bradford, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Love him. Love him," Weinke said when asked about Bradford. Weinke, who has evaluated quarterbacks for a couple of seasons now, said Bradford had one of the best pro days he's ever seen. "A few years ago when Andrew Luck came out they said who would you compare him to? And I said the closest I would see is Sam Bradford."

As part of Weinke's interview process with the team, he met with Bradford for roughly three-and-a-half hours. It wasn't really a formal meeting, though, it was more so the two could get to know eachother. 

Bradford has reportedly been granted permission to seek a trade, but it doesn't appear Rams' ownership wants to part with the 27-year-old quarterback.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) It looks like Matt Hasselbeck's NFL career will extend at least one more year. 

The Colts reached a one-year deal with backup quarterback Hasselbeck, the team announced on Thursday. 

Hasselbeck, 39, will enter his 17th year in the NFL. After starting out as Brett Favre's backup in Green Bay for his first two seasons in 1999 and 2000, he joined the Seahawks via a trade and quickly established himself as a starting-caliber quarterback. 

In 16 NFL seasons, Hasselbeck has totaled 34,948 yards, 203 touchdowns and 148 interceptions. He'll be the top candidate to back up Andrew Luck next season. 


Report: Browns believe they still have a shot at Josh McCown
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) The Browns remain confident that they can snag quarterback Josh McCown from the free agent ranks, according to a report from ESPN.com

McCown visited the Browns this week and has also received interest from the the Jets, Bills and Bears. The Browns are in the market for a starting-caliber quarterback with Brian Hoyer possibly leaving in free agency and with Johnny Manziel's status up in the air with the off-field issues hes working through. 

McCown threw 13 touchdowns to just one interception with the Bears in 2013, doing this while filling in for an injured Jay Cutler. His performance earned him a contract with the Buccaneers, though injuries and poor play resulted in a season that saw him throw 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. 

McCown was released by the Buccaneers earlier this offseason.

McCown was released after just one season with the Buccaneers. He threw for 2,206 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 11 games for Tampa Bay. The 35-year-old has just 49 starts in his resume.


Report: Peyton Manning, Broncos working on restructured deal
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) More evidence points to Peyton Manning playing in 2015. 

According to The Denver Post, the Broncos and Manning are working together on a restructured contract. Manning is slated to make $19 million per season in 2015 and 2016. The Broncos could be working on this deal to create some space to bring back receiver Demaryius Thomas and/or tight end Julius Thomas, both of which will be free agents. 

The restructuring of the deal is perhaps why Manning has yet to make an announcement that he's returning for the 2015 season. 

Manning threw for 4,727 yards, 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2014.

McCown has also garnered interest from the Jets, Bills and Bears thus far since being released. 


Texans QB Ryan Mallett still recovering from torn pectoral muscle
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) A torn pectoral muscle ended Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett's season early in 2014, shortly after he assumed the starting role. 

A few months into recovery, Mallett still isn't 100 percent, he said at a charity event on Wednesday, according to the Houston Chronicle.  

"I'm getting close," Mallett said. "There's no magic potion. I'm trying to get better every day. We'll see how it goes."

The Texans have been talked about as a team that needs to upgrade at the quarterback position this offseason. However, coach Bill O'Brien wants Mallett back in the fold as an option to start in 2015. Mallett is going to hit free agency when the new league year begins if he is not re-signed by Houston before then. 


Vikings unsure whether to bring Matt Cassel back another year
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told FOX Sports North last week at the combine that "nothing definitively has been decided" about bringing veteran Matt Cassel back to the team. 

"We went through our process, we evaluated all of our players," Spielman said. "We looked at everything from what they bring to our football team, in the locker room, off the field, what they bring to us on the field. But we also have to look at where they're at from a standpoint of their contract, where we're at from a cap standpoint…Matt has done a great job. Came in and has won some games when he had to play. He's a great locker-room guy. Matt has a lot of value to us."

Cassel opened as the starter last season before breaking several bones in his foot, which led the way to Teddy Bridgewater becoming the full-time starter. Cassel is signed for the 2015 season at a salary of $4.15 million. He will turn 33 before the start of the season.
