Ex-coach Josh Heupel talked Sam Bradford out of quitting.

Not the most encouraging news if you are an Eagles fan as Bradford is now your starting QB and was a decision away from ending his career. The former St. Louis Ram has torn an ACL twice in his six year career and never fully developed into the number one overall talent that he garnered. He gets a fresh start in Philly after being traded for Nick Foles and joins Chip Kelly's high powered offense that has been revamped for 2016.  Analysis: Rob Trayah

Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.

Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Demarcus Dobbs re-signs with Seahawks on one-year deal.

Dobbs played just four games with the Seahawks last season, and in 49 career games he has never recorded a sack. He provides depth on the defensive line but nothing more. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Andy Dalton will start and A.J. McCarron will compete for the backup role with the Bengals.

Gotta love Dalton's hair! However, it is a lot harder to love the way Dalton played this previous season. It would look really bad if they let McCarron compete with Dalton for the starting role because the Bengals signed Dalton to a huge contract extension in 2014.  Analysis: Mark Kaplan

The 49ers will meet with free-agent linebacker Desmond Bishop on Monday.

The 49ers have lost two linebackers this offseason after both Patrick Willis and Chris Borland retired. It's no surprise that they would contact Bishop considering that he's been a member of the team before. Nothing is imminent, but San Francisco clearly has interest in Bishop's services. Analysis: David Kerr

Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said this week that he intends to get Pierre Garçon’s numbers “back up” in 2015.

The Redskins are a mess, so this is clearly lip service. Garçon is a fine wide receiver, but to think that his numbers will rise with questions surrounding Washington's quarterback situation are a bit far fetched. The veteran wideout saw 45 less receptions and 594 fewer yards last year than he did in 2013, so to think that his numbers will increase next year is a bit preposterous. View him as a WR3 for now, but Garçon has the ability to be much more if the Redskins can develop some chemistry on offense. Analysis: David Kerr

Xavier Su'a-Filo is the leading candidate to start at left guard next season.

Su'a-Filo made 13 appearance in 2014, but only started one game. He showed a ton of growth last year and will look to make the next step forward next season. Analysis: David Kerr

C.J. Anderson will be the Broncos starting running back entering offseason workouts.

The Broncos have three legitimate starting running backs in Anderson, Montee Ball, and Ronnie Hillman. Given Anderson's success in the latter part of the 2014 season though, it is no surprise that Denver views him as their lead back. He should fit in well to Gary Kubiak's offensive scheme and will vault up fantasy draft boards this summer. Anderson picked up a lot of slack last year while Peyton Manning dealt with a shoulder injury and should be a strong RB1 option this year. Analysis: David Kerr

Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Stewart had a solid season last year, averaging 4.6 YPC, though he scored just three touchdowns in thirteen games. The 28-year old just 9 games over the past three seasons, and will not be able to handle the load of a workhorse back. The Panthers will likely find a running back in the draft that is capable of handling the other 8-10 carries that the Panthers expect. Considering that Stewart averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014, this won't destroy his already limited fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Free-agent G Ben Ijalana recently met with the Panthers.

The Panthers have been trying to rebuild their offensive line, signing Michael Ohr and claiming Jonathan Martin from the 49ers last week. They will try to get another offensive lineman in 25-year old Ijalana, a second rounder in 2011 who was a back up for the Jets last season. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Lance Briggs has a Monday visit scheduled with the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers can certainly use some linebacker depth, with both Patrick Willis and Chris Borland now gone. Expect the team to try and lock up Briggs's services during the meet-and-greet. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Sealver Siliga is still using a walking boot after undergoing offseason surgery.

Siliga is a depth player on the defensive line, playing in seven games for the Patriots in 2014, including the last four games of the regular season.  Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Packers are still interested in bringing free-agent FB John Kuhn back, but he isn't a top priority.

Kuhn picks up the occasional TD but should not be a top priority for fantasy football owners. He can be safely ignored except in the deepest of leagues. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jadeveon Clowney said his rehab is going well and he's walking without a limp.

He had a procedure on his knee in December, and the timetable is for him to be functional in nine months. The injury will undoubtedly push back his development to an extent, but if there are no set-backs, he could be a strong IDP presence in 2015 for the Texans. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
