Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (49ers) has received calls from two teams, but he hasn't made a decision on where he'll play in 2016.
Fantasy Tip: Bush is probably done as a focal point in an offense, but he can still contribute in PPR leagues. Depending on where he lands, he's likely an RB5 at most in PPR formats.

Free-agent WR Davone Bess (Browns) has been arrested after a standoff with police at his suburban Phoenix home. Police say Bess fled a traffic stop early Monday, June 20. He is being held on one felony count each of endangerment, flight and failure to stop for a police officer.
Fantasy Tip: Bess was released from the Browns in 2014 and hasn't played a down in the NFL since. Unfortunately it sounds as if his NFL career is over.

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) anticipates being healthy enough to participate in training camp, according to a source. Foster is eager to regain his 2012 form, but he has not been signed yet despite at least three teams having had interest in him.
Fantasy Tip: Foster is easily the most accomplished free-agent running back left on the market, but his fantasy value remains at zero as long as he remains a free agent.

Free-agent OT Jake Long (Falcons) said he's the healthiest he's felt in five or six years, adding that his knee is back to full health. Long said he's been working out and is ready for his next opportunity in the NFL. "When I wake up and my knee doesn't hurt, you know what I mean," Long said. "I feel the strength back. You can see it. You can feel it. My body feels good the way I'm moving, working out and how good I feel moving on it."

Free-agent QB Michael Vick (Steelers) said he has not retired and would love to play in 2016. Vick said he will be selective about the offer he accepts this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Vick could find a backup job if a team suffers an injury but likely will not start any games in 2016. Owners in all leagues should avoid Vick during their drafts.

Free-agent WR Roddy White (Falcons) wants to sign with a contender for the Super Bowl or he could retire. White said he would let it go to maybe Week 4 or Week 5, and he would retire after that.
Fantasy Tip: For all intents and purposes, White is done as an asset in fantasy. Sure, there's a chance he could latch on with a Green Bay or New England and have a pocket of fantasy success. However, his body really deteriorated the last few years. He'll turn 35 in April.
