    Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Worked to prevent soft tissue injuries in offseason
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Mike Evans , who is trying to come back from what he describes as a "down year" in 2015, engaged in specific training this offseason to help reduce the chances of soft tissue injuries, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The third-year wideout led the NFL in drops in 2015, and comes in to the new season determined to be much more consistent in his role as the Bucs' clear-cut No. 1 wideout. In his opening training camp press conference, Evans also emphasized that part of his training regimen this offseason included early morning hamstring workouts designed to prevent the soft-tissue injuries that so often plague receivers. The Texas A & M product knows the feeling first-hand, suffering a hamstring pull against the Bengals in Tampa's second preseason game last year that kept him out of action until Week 2 of the regular season.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Optimistic but looking to improve in coming season
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Doug Martin is looking forward to 2016 but seeks to reduce his career-high five fumbles from last season, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The Pro Bowl running back expressed considerable optimism regarding the coming season as training camp opened Wednesday, remarking that he's "very anxious to get going, to see what this team can do, see how we're going to improve." At the same time, Martin, armed with a new five-year, $35.7 million contract, knows the onus is on him to not only live up to his new deal, but improve on his surprising ball security problems from last season. After only losing three fumbles over his first three NFL campaigns, the 27-year-old coughed up the ball on five occasions in 2015, with three of those occurring in the final five weeks of the campaign. Martin confirms he's worked on specific technique this offseason designed to address the issue. "I watched all those fumbles after last season," Martin said. "It was more of me fighting for extra yards, not having my other arm on the ball, other hand on the ball. That will all be corrected. I don't look to be fumbling that much this year."

    Browns' Armonty Bryant: Pleads guilty to misdemeanor drug charges

    Armonty Bryant (suspension) pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug charges Wednesday and could have his four-game suspension prolonged, Scott Petra of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryant was indicted in February on felony drug charges and originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his stance Wednesday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges. As a result, the outside linebacker will receive 68 days probation which will expire on Oct. 3, the same day he is scheduled to return from his original four-game suspension. However, now that Bryant has changed his plea, his case will yet again be reviewed under the league's policies, potentially leading to a lengthier suspension. Bryant recorded 5.5 sacks in 14 games in 2015.

    Rodgers let his conditioning get away from him the past few offseasons, but stepped up this year, appearing slimmer from head to toe in training camp on Wednesday. Part of the 24-year-old's motivation may stem from the Green Bay Packers ' signing of Jared Cook, who many expect to take over the starting duties this season. However, Cook heads into camp on the PUP list, giving the new-look Rodgers an early chance to impress coaches during first-team reps.

    Broncos' Mark Sanchez: Faces three-way competition
    12h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    The Denver Broncos ' quarterback competition is wide open, The Denver Post reports.

    The news comes from the top in the form of general manager John Elway, but the super-competitive Hall of Famer has little reason to say anything else. His job, and the job of head coach Gary Kubiak, is to keep all three competitors motivated. Split reps, which the Broncos are expected to divvy out, probably favor rookie Paxton Lynch because they offer a better shot at catching up than typical second or third-team reps. In the end, the job is still probably Mark Sanchez 's to lose given the fact that the defending champions have an opportunity to remain competitive with even average quarterback play. If he fails to provide that safety net, however, there would be little reason for the team not to throw Lynch in to see what he can do.

    Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Believes he can play right away

    Paxton Lynch has stated that he can compete for the starting job sooner than even he anticipated, 9NEWS reports.

    Lynch's comments came shortly after a report claiming that Denver's front office would like to see Lynch take over at some point this season. Many assumed during the draft process that Lynch would require a redshirt year before taking the reins of an NFL offense, given his lack of experience making reads. Denver's offense, predicated on the running game and boot-action passes - which can limit reads to half the field - can certainly mask some of that inexperience, however. Mark Sanchez should still be the leader in the clubhouse, but it seems as though both the team and Lynch are looking toward being aggressive with his development.

    Patriots' Tom Brady: Will share training camp reps

    With Tom Brady in line to serve a four-game suspension to start the season, coach Bill Belichick acknowledged Wednesday that now that the team finally has "some definition with Tom's situation...our priority now is to get Jimmy (Garoppolo) ready for the start of the season," ESPN.com reports.

    As training camp progresses, both Brady and Garoppolo, as well as rookie Jacoby Brissett to a lesser degree, will see their share of practice reps. Per Belichick, "Tom will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of our schedule, and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go." Garoppolo is thus slated to start the first four games of the coming season for the New England Patriots , while Brady will be eligible to return to action in Week 5 against the Browns.

    Rookie Jacoby Brissett will also see his share of reps, but NFL.com relays that coach Bill Belichick has made it clear that the team's priority is to get Garoppolo "ready for the start of the season, the Arizona game" in Week 1. Meanwhile Belichick reiterated Wednesday what has been assumed; "Tom (Brady) will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime we can prioritize the first part of our schedule." Thus, barring an injury, Garoppolo is in line to play against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate this coming season, while Brady will return to action on Oct. 9 against the Browns.

    Aaron Murray will enter training camp as one of three quarterbacks (along with Tyler Bray and Kevin Hogan) in competition for the backup job.

    Murray and Bray both took some reps as the No. 2 quarterback during minicamp, putting the two in position as the favorites for the backup job ahead of the rookie signal-caller (Hogan). However, it's unlikely Hogan will be given the boot in his first season, making it plausible either Murray or Bray wind up the odd man out after losing the competition.

    Packers' Eddie Lacy: Reports to camp in noticeably better shape
    17h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Eddie Lacy reported to training camp Tuesday in visibly better shape than he was in last season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Weight was an issue for Lacy last last season, so he did some extra work in the offseason -- particularly with P90X trainer Tony Horton -- in an effort to get in and stay in better shape in 2016. Lacy refused to disclose exactly how much he weighs when asked Tuesday, but the report says that he is slimmer than he was during OTAs, when he was already smaller then than he was at the end of last season. The report also notes that he is not back to his weight coming out of college, but the fact that he's several years older may be an impediment to ever reverting back to that number. Either way, it's good news for fantasy owners and Green Bay Packers fans that Lacy has made it a point to improve his conditioning. If he is able to keep the pounds off -- he has extra motivation in a contract year -- that should lead to improved stamina and stability, and help him improve upon his sub-par 2015 campaign. If not, he could slip into a time-share with James Starks, similar to what occurred a year ago.

    The Carolina Panthers cleared Kelvin Benjamin (knee) for training camp, but he'll be eased into action, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    On Thursday, Benjamin's initial routes at Wofford College will mark his first "full" practice since tearing the ACL in his left knee during an intrasquad practice with the Dolphins last August, according to David Newton of ESPN.com. In his absence, Cam Newton was forced to use all the receiving options at his disposal, and the result was the most productive season of the quarterback's career. Although Benjamin's return will be welcomed by Newton and the rest of the offense, the lessons learned by Newton could result in less attention paid to Benjamin. Nevertheless, in their sole campaign together in 2014, Benjamin rattled off 73 receptions (on 145 targets) for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie.

He turned in a fairly disappointing 2015, finishing with a career-low 663 yards to go along with four touchdowns. While unspectacular, the numbers were accomplished on a 49ers team that had a stagnant offense, so his career-best 20.1 YPC could point towards a bounce-back season with a faster-paced Chip Kelly offense in 2016.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
