Quarterback

QB | Sam Bradford | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
Jason La Canfora, of the NFL Network, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers are enamored with University of Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford and have considered trading for the first overall pick but know it would be highly difficult to move up that high, according to a source.

QB | Jason Campbell | Washington Redskins | Fantasy
The Carolina Panthers have not shown interest in pursuing QB Jason Campbell, who is available for trade from the Washington Redskins, according to The Charlotte Observer's Charles Chandler.

QB | Matt Moore | Carolina Panthers | Depth Chart Tidbit
The Carolina Panthers have fewer games started by quarterbacks on roster than any other team in the NFL, reports Charles Chandler, of The Charlotte Observer. Starting QB Matt Moore has eight starts under his belt, while current back Hunter Cantwell hasn't even taken a regular-season snap. The next lowest in the league is 19 combined starts, held by the St. Louis Rams quarterbacks. It appears questionable whether the Panthers will add a veteran option, as team officials are said to be working with a tight internal budget.

QB | Josh McCown | Carolina Panthers | Free Agents
Unrestricted free-agent QB Josh McCown is willing to re-sign with the Carolina Panthers at a bargain price, according to The Charlotte Observer's Charles Chandler. McCown has 31 career starts on his resume, and the Panthers have yet to sign a veteran backup for starting QB Matt Moore.

QB | Tim Tebow | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
The Carolina Panthers have drafted just one quarterback in the last eight years - Louisville's Stefan Le Flors - during the tenures of general manager Marty Hurney and head coach John Fox. The Panthers may not use their first pick this year, the 48th overall selection, on a quarterback because they also have pressing needs on the defensive line and at wide receiver. If they do choose a quarterback in the second round, it is likely to be Tim Tebow (Florida), Colt McCoy (Texas) or possibly Tony Pike (Cincinnati). QB Dan LeFevour (Central Michigan) could be available to them in the third or fourth round.

QB | Kerry Collins | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy

" … We felt like Chris would be the right fit for us."

WR | Vincent Jackson | San Diego Chargers | Free Agents, Fantasy
Restricted free-agent WR Vincent Jackson would like to remain with the San Diego Chargers long term, according to Kevin Acee, of The San Diego Union-Tribune. Jackson has yet to sign his one-year tender offer. With Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall receiving a four-year, $47.5 million deal, it is now clear what Jackson's cost will be.
