Quarterback

QB | Sam Bradford | St. Louis Rams | Free Agents, Fantasy
The St. Louis Rams are comfortable letting QB Sam Bradford throw the ball 40 times a game. As a result, the team could look at wide receivers capable of impacting a defense's coverage. Free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants) would add an interesting dimension to the offense. Signing a player like Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Sidney Rice would be a fine long-term answer.

QB | Tarvaris Jackson | Free Agent | Free Agents
Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Vikings) is hopeful of signing with a team and competing for their starting quarterback job. "If you go in thinking you're a backup, the next thing you know you're out of the league," Jackson said.

QB | Jake Locker | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Wednesday, July 13, that the team wants to add a veteran quarterback who can win now. "We're not looking for a guy that's not capable of starting and winning games for us. We need someone that can come in here and win, and then have a nice competition between him and (QBs Jake Locker and Rusty Smith)," Munchak said.

QB | Rex Grossman | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Washington Redskins will re-sign impending free-agent QB Rex Grossman once free agency begins.

WR | Randy Moss | Free Agent | Free Agents
Free-agent WR Randy Moss (Titans) is looking forward to entering the NFL free-agent market whenever it opens, according to his agent, Joel Segal. Segal said Wednesday, July 13, Moss is primed to return to "the old Randy Moss." Segal added Moss is in freakish shape. "Randy has been working out, two-a-days, all spring and summer in West Virginia," Segal said. "He is determined, motivated and quite frankly has a huge chip on his shoulder. Whatever team ends up getting Randy, they're going to know they're getting the old Randy Moss. He's not just coming in to be on the team, he's going to be Randy Moss - a difference maker."

WR | Kerry Meier | Atlanta Falcons | Injury, Fantasy
Atlanta Falcons WR Kerry Meier (knee) is not quite recovered from a season-ending injury suffered during the preseason last year. "Not quite there yet, but I feel like I'm turning the corner, which feels good," Meier said. "It's been a long time coming."

WR | Dez Bryant | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Former mentor Deion Sanders blasted Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, saying the team is even more concerned about Bryant and his maturity than he is. Bryant responded in a radio interview. "All I know is everybody's entitled to their own opinion," Bryant said. "In my eyes, I feel like the Cowboys have nothing to worry about. I'm getting everything done like I'm supposed to do. My focus is on the Cowboys."

Guard

Defensive Line

DL | Aubrayo Franklin | San Francisco 49ers | Free Agents
The San Francisco 49ers have four defensive linemen under contract. They will need nine for training camp and six will most likely make the team. Nose tackle becomes an issue if they don't re-sign impending free-agent DL Aubrayo Franklin. The 49ers will need to sign two veterans to go along with at least three undrafted rookies.

DL | Aaron Smith | Pittsburgh Steelers | Injury
Pittsburgh Steelers DL Aaron Smith (triceps) might return from a torn triceps tendon to re-claim his starting job, but DL Ziggy Hood is the future of the defensive line. Smith might start on the left side of the line, but that's mainly due to his tenure rather than ability. Hood and rookie DL Cam Heyward represent the future.

DL | Brandon Graham | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury
Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham (knee) said the surgery he had on his knee in December was microfracture surgery. He is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews next week and is not expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

DL | Kris Jenkins | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Washington Redskins are expected to pursue New York Jets impending free-agent WR Santonio Holmes and DL Kris Jenkins, Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent OG Marshal Yanda and New York Giants impending free-agent DL Barry Cofield once free agency begins.


Linebacker

LB | Rocky McIntosh | Washington Redskins | Free Agents
