QB | Dennis Dixon | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles QB Dennis Dixon indicated that he expects to compete for the starting quarterback job next season.

QB | Sam Bradford | St. Louis Rams | Fantasy
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher indicated the play of QB Sam Bradford was negatively affected by some of the other players on offense this season but is happy with Bradford performed in 2012. "His play was directly affected by the people around him. There's times when it's difficult to step up in the pocket and make the good throw. That's not the quarterback's fault. That's whatever's going on out front," Fisher said. "We're pleased with what Sam did. He's got an exciting future. I know he's really excited about coming back in here in April and getting started and not having to learn another offense."


Running Back

RB | LaRod Stephens-Howling | Arizona Cardinals | Free Agents
The Arizona Cardinals are expected to try to re-sign impending free-agent RB LaRod Stephens-Howling and CB Greg Toler this offseason.

RB | Marcus Lattimore | NFL Draft Prospect | Injury, Draft

RB | Cedric Benson | Free Agent | Free Agents

RB | Eddie Lacy | NFL Draft Prospect | Injury, Draft
University of Alabama RB Eddie Lacy (hamstring) will not work out at the NFL Scouting Combine because of an injury he suffered while working out last week. He suffered a small tear in some tissue around his hamstring. Lacy hopes to participate in all of the drills at his Pro Day.

RB | Reggie Bush | Free Agent | Free Agents
Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson is trying to convince Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Reggie Bush to sign with the team in the offseason. "I know it's not as sunny, and it might not be the same type of glitz and glamor, but you can do wonders for us," Burleson said during a television interview with NFL Network Monday, Feb. 18. "He came from USC, and everybody knows he can go out there and shake a little bit, wiggle a little bit and break that big run. And for him to put up two 1,000-yard seasons the last couple years proves that he's still an elite running back. And if I can get Reggie Bush in a Detroit Lions uniform, ooh-wee, watch out."


Fullback

The Houston Texans are expected to look to re-sign impending free-agent FB James Casey, LB Connor Barwin, CB Brice McCain and FS Glover Quin.


Wide Receiver

WR | Greg Jennings | Free Agent | Free Agents, Fantasy

WR | Dwayne Bowe | Free Agent | Injury, Free Agents, Fantasy

WR | Danny Amendola | Free Agent | Free Agents, Fantasy
The St. Louis Rams are interested in re-signing impending free-agent WR Danny Amendola but will not overpay for him because he has missed 20 games over the last two seasons because of injuries. The team likely will allow Amendola to test the free-agent market and see if they can match any offer he receives.


Tight End

TE | Fred Davis | Free Agent | Injury, Free Agents
The Washington Redskins do not appear likely to use the franchise tag on any of their impending free agents, including TE Fred Davis (Achilles'). General manager Bruce Allen indicated that a decision on Davis wouldn't be made until the team can get a better feel for his recovery later in the spring. The team, however, would not rule out the possibility of franchising Davis.


Place Kicker

PK | Josh Brown | Cincinnati Bengals | Free Agents
The Cincinnati Bengals will have to decide whether to re-sign impending free-agent PK Josh Brown or impending free-agent PK Mike Nugent this offseason. Brown could have the edge because of the way he performed after joining the team, but Nugent had a better average on kickoffs.
