One man's misfortune can be another's opportunity and for Kansas City Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris, and a golden one opened up with the retirement of Sean McGrath.
Harris brought his weight up to 257 pounds after reporting to the team at 225 in his rookie season in 2013, while taking reps with the first-team offense at OTAs while Travis Kelce continues to recover from...
Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte said he doesn't plan to join the list of backs who decline quickly as they close in on 30.
Forte was one of the most productive rushers in the NFL, leading the league with touches and ranking third with 289 carries.
"This offseason I feel better than I have the past five or six offseasons. I got my rest and I know how to take care...
Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib came from the hated New England Patriots, but he said that he's ready to be a Bronco and try to help the team get over the hump and win a Super Bowl.
Talib is also happy about how he's been received in the Mile High City after signing a six-year, $57 million contract with $26 million in guarantees this offseason.
"I am not the...
The Dallas Cowboys misfortunes on defense continued when Sean Lee's season-ending knee injury sustained on the first day of organized team activities in May, left a gaping hole in the middle of the defense.
The team acquired the rights to troubled linebacker Rolando McClain from the Baltimore Ravens, sending sixth-round pick in next year's draft to Baltimore while getting...
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Nate Burleson likes both options the team has at the quarterback position, and feels the club can't go wrong with either one. "Johnny – Oh my God – I love Johnny,'' Burleson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. "I do. Johnny's for real. I like confident quarterbacks. I like guys that are borderline cocky. Both...

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston, the New England Patriots made several roster moves signing receivers Cole Stanford and Brian Tyms.
The Patriots also waived receiver Greg Orton, who was injured and carted off on Friday after tearing his Achilles' tendon in Friday's training camp session.
'Both Stanford and Tyms are long shots to earn a roster...
Although no details are provided, what we do know is that Indianapolis Colts running back Chris Rainey, thought to have moved up on the depth chart following Vick Ballard's season-ending Achilles tendon injury, has been released following some sort of off-field incident.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Rainey violated team rules and was released today as a result. The...
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger believes that the fourth-round pick wide receiver Martavis Bryant could have an immediate impact on offense.
Bryant's size will make him an excellent target in the red zone and with the departures of Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery, who left via free agency and a 16-touchdown void in the club's receiving corps.
The San Francisco 49ers defensive secondary has undergone a huge transformation over th e past few year with the departures of S Dashon Goldson, S Donte Whitner, CB Carlos Rogers, and CB Tarrell Brown and the team is trying to replace them as fast as the can.
However, experience is one area where a team can 'coach up' and general manager Trent Baalke and coach Jim Harbaugh...
The Oakland Raiders claimed WR Greg Little off waivers from the Cleveland Browns and the 2011 second-rounder was a hot commodity once he hit the wire.
Little (6'2, 220), has the size and speed to be a top tier receiver in the NFL, however, his lapses in concentration from not fully grasping the playbook has resulted in numerous drops and missed assignments.
The NFL has again put an emphasis on Illegal contact and defensive holding and it seems the Seattle Seahawks were who they had in mind.
In an age of offense, the Super Bowl was a showcase in defensive football, however, when Peyton Manning is involved, the rules seem to change or 're-emphasized.'
Manning's mauling helped spur the NFL's competition committee to...
Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is hoping former Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor, now serving as Miami's offensive coordinator, will give him the same type of success RB LeSean McCoy had in the Philly offense last year.
Miller even sought out the advice of "Shady" himself on how to thrive in a Lazor-run system.
“He told me that the opportunity is...
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy was effusive with praise when it came to second year cornerback turned safety Micah Hyde.
Hyde opened eyes at the team's OTAs as the first-team safety and is quickly becoming a challenger for the starting spot opposite Morgan Burnett, while holding off 2014 first round pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at least in the offseason.
"My goal is...
Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather looks to be a high hit away from a long suspension if he doesn't learn to keep his hits low. The now-notorious head hunter has the attention of new head coach Jay Gruden, who will try to do what he can for that not to happen. But as the old adage goes, teaching an old dog new tricks doesn't always pay off.
According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the Vikings have reached an agreement with tight end Kyle Rudolph on a five-year, $36.5 million contract.
Rudolph racked up 109 passes for 1,055 yards and 15 touchdowns in his three NFL seasons, since being drafted by the Vikings, who selected Rudolph in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Rudolph is fully recovered from a broken foot...
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and linebacker Trent Cole apparently like each other very much. But that didn't stop the two from going at it after a big hit from Cole left McCoy on the ground - a frequent occurrence when players can't quite stop themselves from going full speed without pads on. "Next thing you know, they're on the ground scuffling...

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson sat out the second day of training camp due to a foot injury.
The second year receiver needs all the reps he can get as he works to refine his raw athletic abilities into an elite receiver.
Coach Mike Zimmer said Patterson is day-to-day and it "won't be long" before he returns.
"He's improving every...
The Chicago Bears made a splash in free agency landing pass rushing defensive end Jared Allen and his impact is being felt almost immediately.
Despite his age, Allen (32), says being a situational pass rusher isn't in his immediate plans with the team and he believes he's still a three down lineman and plans to play as many snaps as possible.
Allen wants to lead by example...
Miami WR Mike Wallace was a huge bust in his first year with the Dolphins, but the firing of former offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has brought change that the receiver likes.
The receiver said new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor’s schemes fits his skill set much better.
“I think I’ll get to run everything,” Wallace said, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald....
Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Antonio Smith, who was teammates with quarterback Matt Schaub in Houston said that the signal caller is starting to show signs of his former self.
Schaub left Houston a not-so-liked man, so he probably would have been happy to have been traded to just about anywhere.
His destination turned out to be Oakland, where he has a chance to redeem himself...
