Darqueze Dennard (shoulder) should be ready for the start of training camp.
For the Bengals' sake they will need Darqueze Dennard to be ready and to step it up next year with Adam Jones and Leon Hall due to hit free-agency. The shoulder injury was pretty bad, tearing his Labrum and Rotator Cuff. As long as the injury doesn't affect him mentally, he should be good-to-go. Dennard was the 24th overall pick in the 2014 draft after winning the Jim Thorpe Award for the top defensive back his senior year at Michigan State. Analysis: Mike Cahill
Wide receiver Bernard Reedy, linebacker Jermauria Rasco and defensive end Cliff Matthews signed reserve/future contracts with the Buccaneers.
The short Bernard Reedy adds interesting upside as a returner, but at 5'8, 175 lbs., he is not overly fast. He ran a 4.52 forty-yard dash at Toledo's Pro-Day. During his career at Toledo he had 195 receptions for 2,743 yards and 23 touchdowns, along with three kick-return touchdowns and one punt-return for a touchdown. The LSU LB, Jermauria Rasco is an interesting prospect for the Bucs, as he is a solid-player but needs to hone his craft at one position and he should become an excellent player. He can play in a 3-4 scheme as an OLB and if he finds a team that will put him in one spot to learn, he should become a monster. Cliff Matthews has three season with the Falcons, but very limited production with 28 total tackles, mostly on special teams. Jermauaria seems to have the best shot to make the team and he is a name to watch in the future. Analysis: Mike Cahill
Khiry Robinson (leg) has been cleared for jogging.
Khiry Robinson had appeared in only eight games last season before breaking the tibia in his right leg in November. He rushed 56 times for a measly 3.2 YPC, but had four touchdowns. He played a lot of goal-line situations to punch the ball in close. Robinson is a RFA this year and will likely get tendered at the second-round level. Mark Ingram was a beast before getting injured last year, and it's not out of the question that the Saints cut C.J. Spiller, so Robinson would be the main back-up unless someone tried to sign him for a second-round pick, which they won't. Analysis: Mike Cahill
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Josh Gordon is confident he will be reinstated by the NFL.
The talented wide receiver has been disciplined by the league on multiple occasions, most recently for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He missed all of 2015 after missing the majority of 2014, and is suspended indefinitely. Gordon will apply for reinstatement, though, and stands a decent chance at being reinstated. Gordon has been electric when on the field, but unfortunately he's been unable to stay out of trouble. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Panthers listed Thomas Davis (arm) as probable for the Super Bowl.
It is apparent that Thomas Davis has a high pain threshold. After breaking his forearm during a tackle in the second quarter of the Panthers win over the Cardinals in the NFC Championship, he was able to practice all this week. Davis had 11-to-12 screws placed in his arm to allow him to play in the Super Bowl. This is a bonus to the Panther defense as Davis recorded 105 tackles this season along with 5.5 sacks and four interceptions. Although he is listed as probable, his coach Ron Rivera fully expects Davis to start. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Jets have signed Kyle Brindza to a futures deal.
After losing Nick Folk for the last month of the 2015 season, the Jets have added a former Buccaneers kicker for depth at tryouts. New York has signed Kyle Brindza to a futures deal to provide competition at training camp. Brindza did kick his way out of the Tampa Bay job missing six field goals prior to being cut in October. As long as Folk is healthy, the job should be his in 2016. Analysis: Greg Jewett
