Place Kicker

PK | Josh Scobee | Jacksonville Jaguars | Free Agents
Jacksonville Jaguars franchise free-agent PK Josh Scobee said he is frustrated with the lack of contract talks with the team and did not see any reason to attend offseason workouts if he did not have a contract. "I just don't see a point in showing any good faith to the team if they're not going to negotiate," Scobee said. "There's no reason for me to show up on my good faith being that I'm the player, I'm the employee, when they choose not to speak. I don't expect them to reward bad behavior and I won't reward them with the behavior that they're treating me with."

CB | Tramon Williams | Green Bay Packers | Injury
Green Bay Packers CB Tramon Williams (shoulder) said his injured shoulder is making progress and it is not an injury that is career threatening. "The shoulder's doing fine. I'm still rehabbing it at this point, everything's looking good. Structurally the shoulder is doing well. It's more of a nerve thing at this point. I'm going to use the example I used in the locker room: During the season, I couldn't lift a 30, 35 pound dumbbell over my head. Now I'm up to a 90 pound dumbbell. I'm not a doctor, but that's progress," Williams said.
