Quarterback

QB | Brian Brohm | Buffalo Bills | Free Agents
The Buffalo Bills are not expected to re-sign free-agent QB Brian Brohm this offseason.

QB | Ryan Mallett | New England Patriots | Draft
New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett was late to his scheduled April 18 pre-NFL Draft meeting with the Tennessee Titans, according to multiple sources. Mallett was late to his meeting with the Titans, though the actual amount of time is not certain. One source said Mallett was about 30 to 40 minutes late, while another indicated Mallett was more than an hour late on his arrival at the Titans' facility. Mallett apparently told the Titans that he was sick but also said he did not receive his wake-up call from the hotel, according to a source.

QB | Marc Bulger | Baltimore Ravens | Free Agents
A Baltimore Ravens source said the team will not pursue tampering charges against the Arizona Cardinals because it would be difficult to find evidence to prove the Cardinals have an understanding with QB Marc Bulger to sign him. Bulger was the Ravens' backup quarterback last season. Even though Bulger will be an unrestricted free agent, he is technically on the Ravens until the new league year begins.

QB | John Beck | Washington Redskins | Draft
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said the team has a plan for their quarterback position after deciding not to take a quarterback during the 2011 NFL Draft. "We've got a lot of different directions we could go," Shanahan said. "I can't share our whole gameplan with you now for obvious reasons, but we do have a plan." Shanahan did express confidence in QB John Beck and said he has liked him since he came out of college.


Running Back

RB | Taiwan Jones | Oakland Raiders | Draft
Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson said RB Taiwan Jones' talent was simply too good to pass up in the NFL Draft. "How do you pass up a guy that can make plays like that? As I keep saying, you find a special talent, a guy that can score touchdowns as often and as fast as he can, and if he is sitting there, it's hard to pass up those kinds of guys," Jackson said. "I wouldn't pass him up and we didn't pass him up. I mean, he's on our football team. This guy is a tremendous, tremendous football player and he is something special."

RB | Cedric Benson | Cincinnati Bengals | Fantasy
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis indicated that re-signing RB Cedric Benson this offseason was a top priority for the team.

RB | Bilal Powell | New York Jets | Injury
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) said the pulled right hamstring the caused him to sit out the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine is getting close to 100 percent healthy. Powell said he is still receiving treatment for the injury.


Wide Receiver

WR | Greg Little | Cleveland Browns | Draft
The Cleveland Browns front office feels the team is not ready to contend, which explains why the Browns traded for multiple picks in 2011 and 2012 rather than keep their No. 6 overall selection in the NFL Draft. They then drafted raw talent like WR Greg Little and TE Jordan Cameron.


Tight End

TE | Jordan Cameron | Cleveland Browns | Draft
The Cleveland Browns front office feels the team is not ready to contend, which explains why the Browns traded for multiple picks in 2011 and 2012 rather than keep their No. 6 overall selection in the NFL Draft. They then drafted raw talent like WR Greg Little and TE Jordan Cameron.


Defensive Line

DL | Brandon Mebane | Seattle Seahawks | Free Agents
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said the team wants to re-sign impending free-agent DT Brandon Mebane this offseason. The team only drafted one defensive lineman, which may make re-signing Mebane a high priority.


Linebacker

LB | Aldon Smith | San Francisco 49ers | Draft
The Houston Texans entered the 2011 NFL Draft looking to draft DE Aldon Smith with their first-round draft choice but he was taken by the San Francisco 49ers before the Texans had a chance to draft.

LB | Stephen Tulloch | Tennessee Titans | Free Agents
Tennessee Titans LB Stephen Tulloch's future with the team is uncertain after the team drafted LB Colin McCarthy. Tulloch is a free agent this offseason but it is not known if he will be a restricted free agent or an unrestricted free agent.

LB | Mark Herzlich | NFL Draft Prospect | Free Agents
The New England Patriots could be interested in undrafted free-agent LB Mark Herzlich (Boston College) once the lockout is lifted and teams are able to sign players.
