Quarterback

QB | Brett Favre | Retired | Transaction
Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre would not have to report to a team that he was traded to, which would make him property of the Packers once again after an undisclosed amount of time.

QB | Colt Brennan | Washington Redskins | Transaction
John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports the Washington Redskins signed sixth-round draft pick QB Colt Brennan to a four-year contract Monday, July 14, worth roughly $1.8 million.

QB | Joe Flacco | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Updating previous reports, Aaron Wilson, of the Carroll County Times, reports the Baltimore Ravens are expected to meet again with the agent for rookie QB Joe Flacco in the coming week. Flacco, who is expected to compete for the No. 1 job, has expressed confidence the proposed five-year deal will be done soon. The two sides have already met four times previously.


Running Back

RB | Travis Henry | Free Agent | Free Agency News, Fantasy
Updating a previous report, Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com, reports free-agent RB Travis Henry (Broncos) confirmed he has tested positive for marijuana again and is subject to a one-year suspension by the league. He will begin serving the one-year suspension soon, according to a source close to Henry. There is a strong chance that Henry's career could be over after repeated issues with the law.


Wide Receiver

WR | Chris Henry | Free Agent | Free Agency News
The Associated Press reports free-agent WR Chris Henry (Bengals) plans to apply for reinstatement by the NFL immediately after prosecutors dropped the last remaining charge against him Monday, July 14, according to his agent Perry Ancona. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league will review all factors at the appropriate time.

WR | Muhsin Muhammad | Carolina Panthers | Fantasy
Pat Yasinskas, of ESPN.com, reports Carolina Panthers WR Muhsin Muhammad could wind up starting for the team opposite of WR Steve Smith. Starting Muhammad over WR D.J. Hackett would likely be considered the safer choice for head coach John Fox.

WR | Joe Jurevicius | Cleveland Browns | Injury News
Tony Grossi, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports Cleveland Browns WR Joe Jurevicius (knee) intends to honor his commitment to return for the 2008 season despite recently undergoing a fourth procedure on his right knee since January, according to a source. Jurevicius will open training camp on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list. It is possible he could begin the season on the PUP list, which would cause him to miss at least the first six weeks of the season.

WR | Adrian Arrington | New Orleans Saints | Depth Chart Tidbit
Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports New Orleans Saints WR Adrian Arrington has been very impressive thus far. However, he may be squeezed by the numbers game and start out on the team's practice squad.

WR | Lance Moore | New Orleans Saints | Depth Chart Tidbit
Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore may have to earn a roster spot as a return man if he is going to stick with the team this year.

WR | Devery Henderson | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports New Orleans Saints WR Devery Henderson will be in serious trouble if he is not able to establish himself during training camp.

WR | Devin Thomas | Washington Redskins | Fantasy
David Elfin, of the Washington Times, reports the Washington Redskins have just three remaining unsigned rookies, including WR Devin Thomas.

WR | Malcolm Kelly | Washington Redskins | Fantasy
David Elfin, of the Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins rookie WR Malcolm Kelly could play a critical role for the team in the red zone this year. Kelly is 6-foot-4, which is six inches taller than starting receivers Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El.
