Baltimore placed six players on the PUP list and Trent Richardson was among them. He has been limited due to injuries the last two years and could require an athroscopic knee procedure before the team could look to activate him. Richardson has 2,032 rushing yards in three seasons with the Browns and Colts with 17 touchdowns on 614 carries. He also has 113 receptions for 912 yards and two touchdown for his career. It remains to be seen if Richardson can have any relevancy in fantasy this year, especially with six running backs on the Ravens roster.
He's coming into the fourth year of his rookie contract, and the Texans undoubtedly want to keep their star wide out right where he is. Hopkins was outstanding last season and unstoppable at times, catching 111 balls for 1,521 yards and 11 scores. One has to imagine he considers his own worth to be on par with AJ Green, who signed a deal last September worth $15 million a year.
Mays was with the Bengals from 2011-2014 before spending a season with Oakland last year. The Bengals snapped him up again even after knowing that he would miss the first four games of the season due to suspension, but apparently they didn't see enough from Mays to even keep him around for a veteran minimum salary. He could still get a shot with another club at some point this season.
Krause has bounced around different training camps for a few years now, and got a small shot with the Eagles last season. He doesn't figure to make much of an impact for the Bucs this season, even in the unlikely even that he does make their final roster.
The Ravens placed six players on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list Saturday, including outside linebackers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil, wide receivers Steve Smith Sr.and Breshad Perriman, running back Trent Richardson and cornerback Jumal Rolle. Suggs and Smith are both returning from tearing their Achilles tendons last year, while Elvis Dumervil had an offseason procedure on his foot, and Perriman suffered a knee injury during an offseason practice. Richardson was limited in practice throughout the offseason because of a hamstring issue and Rolle will reportedly miss the entire season with a torn Achilles. The goal is for Suggs, Smith, Dumervil and Perriman to return at some point during training camp, and be ready to play week one. Suggs is actually scheduled to address the media Wednesday for the first time since suffering the injury last season. The timetable for Richardson’s return is a little murkier because there has been no official update on his status.
After thirteen seasons in the NFL, most of them with the Chicago Bears, 35 year old CB Charles Tillman signed a one day contract with the Bears his hometown team, to be able to retire in Chicago. He has the most interceptions in Bears franchise history with 36. Meanwhile joining the reserve list, is newly signed OT Nate Chandler who was released by the Carolina Panthers about a month ago, and has been competing for a starting position.
That is a troubling trend and should give any of his fantasy owners concern about his availability going into the season. Bell is appealing the suspension, but if this report is accurate, it looks like he will definitely miss some time to start the season. Time to move DeAngelo Williams up your draft lists.
Brees contract does not expire until after 2017, but an extension would provide an opportunity for some salary cap relief for the Saints. There is no animosity between the two sides, and a deal should be worked out sometime soon, although prior to training camp now seems unlikely.
He took part in team activities during OTAs, after undergoing sports hernia surgery in January. He only played in six games last season, and his return to the Saint secondary should help to improve their defensive coverage.
The Houston front office would be wise to lock him up. He is a reception machine, even when the QB situation is not exactly top notch as it was last season. The two rookie receivers Will Fuller and Braxton Miller should minimize the constant double coverage Hopkins saw last season once they develop.
