Quarterback

QB | Matt Hasselbeck | Seattle Seahawks | Free Agents
The Tennessee Titans could show interest in Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck once free agency begins because he would fit the team's offense well and would allow QB Jake Locker some time to learn the offense at a better pace.

QB | Ryan Fitzpatrick | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix re-confirmed his commitment to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Tuesday, May 10. "We like our quarterback. We think Fitz is a smart guy, he's a tough guy.

QB | Eli Manning | New York Giants | Fantasy
New York Giants WR Michael Clayton and eight other players attended QB Eli Manning's passing camp Tuesday, May 10, which is in its second week. Others that attended included QB Sage Rosenfels, TE Kevin Boss, WR Darius Reynaud, WR Duke Calhoun, WR Samuel Giguere, WR Victor Cruz and OT David Diehl.

Walton, OG Zane Beadles, DT Kevin Vickerson, LB Joe Mays and DE Robert Ayers. They are scheduled to work out again Thursday, May 12.

QB | Tony Romo | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been in contact with some of the team's draft picks about coordinating for workouts. OT Tyron Smith, RB DeMarco Murray, WR Dwayne Harris and FB Shaun Chapas have all shown interest in participating in workouts. "It's literally like we're doing the same things we'd be doing at an OTA - the tempo and everything," Romo said. "I've been around it long enough that I have plenty of schedules laying around my house that I've been able to use for the time frame." WR Dez Bryant has also attended the workouts.


Running Back

RB | Darren Sproles | San Diego Chargers | Free Agents
The St. Louis Rams could show interest in San Diego Chargers impending free-agent RB Darren Sproles once free agency begins because they are looking to add a third-down back and he would also help by being a receiving threat in the middle of the field, which would take pressure off the outside receivers.

RB | Reggie Bush | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
New Orleans Saints RB Reggie Bush was one of a handful of veteran players under contract with the Saints not taking part in offseason conditioning sessions at Tulane University last week. On Twitter, Bush wrote: "Everybody is complaining about the lockout! Shoot I'm making the most of it! Vacation, rest, appearances here and there! I'm good! ... Right about now we would be slaving in 100 degree heat, practicing twice a day, while putting our bodies at risk for nothing." Bush's roster spot with the team is tenuous at this time, and other recent Twitter comments have led to speculation that he wants out of New Orleans.

Guard

OG | Logan Mankins | New England Patriots | Free Agents

DL | Barry Cofield | New York Giants | Free Agents

If his Achilles' is well, and he's ahead of where he should be," Nix said. "To think he's getting old - he's 26 years old. He came out as a junior, he was 20 when (San Diego) drafted him."
