Quarterback

QB | Robert Griffin III | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
The Cleveland Browns want to select Baylor QB Robert Griffin III in the NFL Draft and are willing to move up to get him, according to league sources. The Browns have the ammo to get Griffin - the fourth overall pick and a late first-rounder or high picks in later rounds.

QB | Tim Tebow | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway said he will try to speed up QB Tim Tebow's learning curve by working with him on staying within the offense, trusting the scheme and not leaning so heavily on improvising.

QB | Brady Quinn | Free Agent | Free Agents
Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brady Quinn is not expected to re-sign with the team because he likely will look for an opportunity for playing time.


Running Back

RB | Matt Forte | Free Agent | Free Agents
Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte is expected to return to the team in 2012. If the Bears do not sign him to a long-term deal, they will place the franchise tag on him.

RB | Ryan Grant | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Green Bay Packers may not look to re-sign impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant. The Packers may hesitate to commit more guaranteed money to a 29-year old running back. The team also has the presence of younger RBs James Starks and Brandon Saine on the roster.

RB | Fred Jackson | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey indicated RBs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller likely will share carries next season and neither will get a majority of the carries. "I wouldn't call it 50-50, but it's closer to 50-50 than it ever has been because (Spiller's) more confident and we have more confidence in him having experience now," said Gailey. "To me it's a win-win for everybody except them individually. It's a win-win for the team. It's a win-win for setting up game plans and for us making it through the season healthy. It's not a win-win for each of them individually because neither one of them will get the ball as much as they want to."
