Quarterback

QB | Marc Bulger | Baltimore Ravens | Free Agents
The Miami Dolphins could show interest in Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent QB Marc Bulger this offseason if they are unable to trade for Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer.

QB | Adam Froman | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
University of Louisville QB Adam Froman said he talked with the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons on the final day of the 2011 NFL Draft but was not taken by any team.


Running Back

RB | DeMarco Murray | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray will challenge RB Felix Jones for the starting running back position, and there is no reason why Murray should not expect to win the job.


Wide Receiver

WR | Kevin Walter | Houston Texans | Draft
Houston Texans WR Kevin Walter should keep his starting receiver job next season because the team did not take a wide receiver in the 2011 NFL Draft.

WR | Torrey Smith | Baltimore Ravens | Draft, Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said WR Torrey Smith will immediately compete for a starting job after being drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft. The Ravens envision Smith operating as a deep threat for QB Joe Flacco. "He's coming in to compete and be a starting wide receiver for us," Newsome said. "The vertical speed he brings to us will be a big asset. Joe is a very good deep thrower. Torrey also has the ability to be a returner. We can utilize him there, but he's competing to be a starting wide receiver."

WR | Braylon Edwards | New York Jets | Free Agents
New York Jets impending free-agent WR Braylon Edwards said he would be willing to take a small discount to re-sign with the team.


Tight End

TE | Kevin Boss | New York Giants | Injury
New York Giants TE Kevin Boss (hip) said his rehab from offseason hip surgery is going well and expects to be medically cleared in a few weeks.


Place Kicker

PK | Mike Nugent | Cincinnati Bengals | Injury

Offensive Tackle

OT | Gabe Carimi | Chicago Bears | Draft
Chicago Bears OL Frank Omiyale will wind up in another position, either right tackle or left guard, or perhaps even benched, as a result of the team selecting OT Gabe Carimi in the NFL Draft. Omiyale has played both guard and tackle in the past.


Defensive Line

DL | Ray Edwards | Minnesota Vikings | Free Agents
Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent Ray Edwards said he is not interested in playing under the first-round tender he received if he is categorized as a restricted free agent once the lockout ends. Edwards said he does not want to play for less than what backup DE Brian Robison will be paid. Robison recently got a new three-year, $14.1 million contract.
