Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald: Not thinking about retirement
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2016) Fitzgerald said he hasn't yet considered whether 2016 might be his last season, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Set to turn 33 shortly before Week 1, Fitzgerald only has one year remaining on his contract, but he remained highly effective last season even as John Brown and Michael Floyd also thrived (at times) in the excellent Arizona offense. While a repeat of 2015's 109-1,215-9 receiving line is probably too much to ask, Fitzgerald proved beyond any shred of doubt that he can still play at a high level. Barring a major injury or steep downturn in effectiveness, he'll likely stick around beyond 2016, be it in Arizona or elsewhere. With Floyd also entering the final year of his contract and likely seeking a big deal afterward, the Cardinals probably won't retain both receivers past 2016.

Packers' Jordy Nelson: Remains limited but progressing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2016) Nelson (knee) remains limited at OTAs, according to Packers reporter Jason Wilde.

Nelson is doing individual work - running routes and catching passes - though presumably not at full speed. Having suffered his torn ACL last preseason, he may be ready for full participation at some point in camp. First, he'll need to prove that he can make sharp cuts while running at full speed. Nelson remains on track for Week 1.

Titans' Dorial Green-Beckham: Back to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2016) Green-Beckham (hamstring) is back at full strength, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports.

Green-Beckham briefly dealt with soreness in the same hamstring that bothered him last season. He didn't miss much practice time, and while the Titans did add Rishard Matthews -- in addition to RBs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry -- during the offseason, DGB will have every chance to earn a starring role as one of Marcus Mariota's leading weapons.

Eagles' Rueben Randle: Undergoes gallblader surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2016) Randle missed Tuesday's OTAs after undergoing gallbladder surgery.

The procedure may require a week or two of recovery, but it shouldn't threaten Randall's availability for training camp. After signing a modest one-year contract in the offseason, he'll compete for snaps against Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff, Chris Givens and others. Jordan Matthews is locked in as the top receiver, and Agholor's draft status (2015 first-rounder) would seem to give him an edge for the No. 2 role.

Bills' Sammy Watkins: Expected back for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2016) Bills GM Doug Whaley expects Watkins to be ready for Week 1, Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News reports.

Watkins recently suffered a Jones fracture, which typically requires 8-12 weeks to heal. Dez Bryant returned to the field seven weeks after suffering a similar injury in Week 1 last season, but he never looked like his usual self over the final two months of the campaign. Atlanta's Julio Jones has dealt with the injury twice, and while his recoveries took much longer than Bryant's, he returned in top form both times. Watkins will be 16-17 weeks removed from the injury by the time Week 1 rolls around, so the Bills' optimism isn't without cause. It's even possible he could return for a preseason game or two, though he'll likely miss most (or all) of training camp.

49ers' Quinton Patton: Early favorite to win starting WR job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/23/2016) Patton is the early favorite to win a starting receiver role, CSN Bay Area reports.

Patton hasn't done a whole lot in his three seasons with the 49ers, but he is the defacto favorite to win a starting role alongside Torrey Smith due to a crop of young and unproven receivers behind him. This is by no means a final decision and things could change when training camp opens and the preseason begins.

Brian Hartline: Released by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/23/2016) Hartline has been released by the Browns, reports.

Hartline's release comes after the Browns added five wide receivers during last month's draft, including first-rounder Corey Coleman, whose development could prove vital for Cleveland's offense this season. At 29 years old, Hartline is coming off 46 catches (on 74 targets) for 523 yards and two touchdowns in his only season with the Browns last year, and should draw interest on the free agent market as an experienced wideout with two 1,000-plus yard campaigns in his career thus far.

Browns' Corey Coleman: Projected No. 1 wideout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/23/2016) Coleman could quickly earn the Browns' No. 1 wideout position this season, reports.

Coleman was the first wide receiver selected in last month's draft, addressing a glaring need on the Browns' roster as someone that projects as a future No. 1 wideout. Although coach Hue Jackson pointed out Coleman's room for improvement in his conditioning during rookie camp, the former Baylor standout is a dynamic athlete and could become a game-breaking target in Cleveland's passing game once acclimated. Early impressions from the Browns' workouts echo that sentiment, thus making Coleman an intriguing fantasy option, particularly in dynasty formats.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Training camp return targeted
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/23/2016) Cruz did not participate in team drills during the Giants' first day of OTAs Monday, reports.

Cruz was seen working with team trainers on the sideline during Monday's session, after which coach Ben McAdoo said the goal is to have Cruz back for training camp. Following a significant knee injury and subsequent calf strain, Cruz hasn't played since October of 2014, so the Giants are rightfully exercising caution with his return and holding him out of team drills for the time being. While Cruz is limited to individual work, rookie second-round Sterling Shepard should continue to receive a thorough introduction to the Giants' offense.

Saints' Vincent Brown: Signing with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/23/2016) Brown is expected to sign with the Saints, ESPN's Adam Caplin reports.

Brown was released by the Chargers back in December after playing just one game last season. Over the course of his 38 career games played, Brown has caught 73 passes for 941 yards and three touchdowns. With numbers like those, Brown brings decent experience, but will have to compete for a place in the Saints' passing game over the course of this summer.
