WR | A.J. Green | Cincinnati Bengals | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
With the trade of WR Chad Ochocinco, Cincinnati Bengals rookie WR A.J. Green quickly inherited the No. receiver status for the Bengals. He didn't sound too concerned with the pressure. "I've dealt with pressure. I've had pressure my whole life. Being a big-time recruit coming out and being that guy at Georgia, it's no different. I don't let the outside world affect me (on) the field. I just go out and do my job," Green said.

WR | Brandon Tate | New England Patriots | Depth Chart Tidbit

WR | Jordy Nelson | Green Bay Packers | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson had trouble catching the ball at times last season, but was strong after the catch and ran tight routes. Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said Nelson could be a solid starter for the Packers.

WR | Randall Cobb | Green Bay Packers | Depth Chart Tidbit
Green Bay Packers rookie WR Randall Cobb is best suited to play in the slot receiver position. Cobb excelled in college with his quickness, hands and ability to break tackles.

WR | Donald Driver | Green Bay Packers | Injury, Fantasy
Green Bay Packers WR Donald Driver (knee/ankle) spent two months in a walking boot this offseason after suffering an injury in the Super Bowl.

Driver, 36, started to slow down last year for the first time, and his playing time also started to dwindle. He played more snaps (803), including the playoffs, than backup WRs Jordy Nelson (701) and James Jones (649), but both of them had more receiving yards than Driver did. Driver's yards after the catch also dropped to 3.06 last season, which was the lowest amongst the Packers receivers. In the last three seasons, he has dropped 25 passes compared to 14 in the three years before that.

When training camp begins, Driver, who is still happy to do the dirty work and go over the middle, is going to have to prove himself once again. Head coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this year that he believes Driver has a lot left in the tank, but offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said Driver, like everyone else, is going to have prove how ready he is for 2011. "We haven't slotted 50 balls to go his way, or 75, or 25. We'll see," Philbin said.

WR | Derrick Williams | Detroit Lions | Depth Chart Tidbit
Detroit Lions WR Derrick Williams is on the bubble to make the team this year. The Lions hoped he would develop into a dynamic special teams player, but he has not lived up to expectations and may now be a long-shot to make the roster with the addition of special teams ace Rashied Davis. Davis is also likely to take over as the No. 4 receiver, which is where Williams was previously slated.

WR | Greg Salas | St. Louis Rams | Transaction
The St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms with fourth-round draft choice WR Greg Salas on a four-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

TE | Antonio Gates | San Diego Chargers | Injury, Fantasy
Continuing a previous storyline, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (toe) plans to take it easy during training camp when he can. He is going to rely on head coach Norv Turner and the training staff to decide when he should push forward in his recovery from plantar fasciitis and when he should slow down. Gates said he is trying to do what he needs to so he can be both well rested and well prepared for the upcoming season. "It's a give and take at this point," he noted.

TE | Brandon Manumaleuna | Free Agent | Transaction, Free Agents
