Quarterback

QB | Peyton Manning | Denver Broncos | Transaction, Fantasy
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said that he feels good and will not consider retirement after the Super Bowl XLVIII appearance and loss. "I feel better physically," Manning said last week. "I've been rejuvenated playing under a different offense, playing with new receivers, because it keeps me stimulated every day. So I certainly would like to keep playing."

QB | Russell Wilson | Seattle Seahawks | Fantasy
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson plans to attend spring training with the Texas Rangers, according to his agent. He was selected in that sport's Rule 5 draft in December.

Seattle fans and fantasy owners likely need not worry about Wilson ditching football for baseball, obviously. It's interesting that he will work with the team and hasn't given up his baseball completely, though.

QB | Shaun Hill | Detroit Lions | Free Agents
The Detroit Lions may re-sign impending free-agent QB Shaun Hill this offseason if he is willing to accept the backup quarterback job. Hill likely will sign with another team if he is looking to compete for a starting job.

QB | Rex Grossman | Washington Redskins | Free Agents
The Washington Redskins are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent QB Rex Grossman this offseason.

QB | Kirk Cousins | Washington Redskins | Fantasy
With the Cleveland Browns hiring former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, there is speculation that the Browns could make a play to trade for Redskins backup QB Kirk Cousins, after he expressed a desire to be traded in order to be a starter with a team. Shanahan has spent the last two years coaching Cousins in Washington.


Running Back

Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno is set to become a free agent, and he seems unlikely to return despite a 1,000-yard season after using a second-round pick on RB Montee Ball in 2013.

RB | Ray Rice | Baltimore Ravens | Injury, Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) said he regrets playing most of the 2013 season with a nagging hip injury. Rice, who had career lows in yards (660), average yards per carry (3.1) and touchdowns (four), resumed his offseason workouts Monday, Feb. 3. "I played through an injury and I probably should have thought twice about it, but I'm glad I was able to push through the season and not have any surgical procedures," said Rice. "One thing I know my body needed was rest, and we had a tough turnaround, and we didn't do what we wanted to this year, but I'm positive that things are looking better for next year already. We'll get this thing rolling again."

RB | Fred Jackson | Buffalo Bills | Injury, Fantasy
