That is an interesting comment, considering that Morris is signed with the Cowboys. McFadden and Morris will likely be pressed to see much time in the backfield, anyway, with the Cowboys having drafted Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft.
It appears that he feels the torn ACL that cost him all of 2015 and ended his season in Week 6 of 2014 has fully healed. NFL teams will likely be skeptical that his knees can hold up to the stress imposed on running back. He may catch on with some team as insurance, but do not expect him back as a lead back in 2016.
Smith did not play a huge role in the Jets offense but he showed signs of breaking through at points. It looks as if he is a long shot for the regular season, but once he returns he should add some value in the slot position for the Jets, giving him limited fantasy value.
Davis showed he was some kind of talent last year as he posted 10 sacks. The Jags will look to leverage his ability by putting him both at LB and DE this season. Expect him to be a big time impact on the defense as he could be of some value in IDP leagues.
This shouldn't be too big of a deal as the Lions do not seem too concerned that he was missing. Tate broke out in a big way last season and should continue to be a force on the offensive end especially with the departure of Megatron.
Abdullah is coming off surgery so no surprise here as it was going to be a long shot for him to be ready for training camp. He will continue his rehab and look to get ready for the regular season where he is likely to line up as the lead back for the Lions. Keep an eye on his progress as he could be a solid RB2 in leagues this season with his ability to catch passes heading up the field.
This is an update on developments that were reported earlier as a possible end to the stalemate could be coming soon. The first deal the Jets offered Fitzpatrick's way was widely reported to have a first-year payout of $8 million which was considered a low-ball offer by his camp. New York has upped that original offer by half again as much which fits more with the market value of his skill set at this point. While the rest of the financials of the deal are not known, it is hoped that this will get him back in the fold and end the uneasiness that has taken over Jets OTAs with Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall not showing up earlier in the week to send a message to Jets front office personnel regarding their displeasure with the situation.
Leary has started all 35 games in his NFL career but was limited to just four games in 2015. This seems to be a fluid situation as Leary is clearly not happy with his place on the roster.
Pitta suffered a fractured and dislocated hip in two straight seasons, sitting out all of 2015. With that in mind, it's great news to hear that he's feeling good, as many thought his career was over after the second injury. Pitta has played just seven games in the past three seasons, though, and it won't be easy for him to get back to past performance levels.
