NFL Recent Player News
|6/16/2016||Marquis Jackson, Chi, DE|
|The Bears signed Jackson on Thursday.
Analysis: Jackson, who attended Bears' minicamps this year, played in two games for the Portland Thunder of the AFL, posting 1 1/2 tackles, two pass breakups and one fumble recovery.
|6/16/2016||Tony Moeaki, Chi, TE|
|The Chicago Bears signed Moeaki on Thursday.
Analysis: Moeaki, who has battled knee issues in the past few years, got off to a fast start for Kansas City after being drafted in the third round in 2010. In 49 games over two seasons for the Chiefs, the Buffalo Bills in 2013, the Seattle Seahawks in 2014 and Atlanta Falcons last season, Moeaki has 91 receptions for 1,201 yards and six touchdowns. He missed the 2011 season with a knee injury.
|6/16/2016||Terrell Suggs, Bal, LB|
|There is uncertainty surrounding Suggs, who tore his Achilles in the 2015 season opener against Denver, and whether he will be ready to play by the start of training camp.
Analysis: After Blatimore's mandatory minicamp ended, those questions remain because the 33-year-old Suggs has not met with the media since suffering the injury.
|6/15/2016||Ameer Abdullah, Det, RB|
|For a Lions team that ranked 32nd in rushing last year, the hope is that Abdullah can make considerable improvement in 2016. He showed promise as a rookie, averaging 4.2 yards per carry, but five fumbles limited his touches and he is not practicing because of a shoulder injury.
Analysis: The only information Abdullah provided about his shoulder injury this winter when surgery only became public knowledge a few weeks ago was that he suffered it "playing football." Abdullah has yet to practice this offseason, and coach Jim Caldwell wouldn't commit to him being more involved this season at this point.
|6/15/2016||Karlos Williams, Buf, RB|
|Williams did not endear himself to coach Rex Ryan when he reported to the Bills' mandatory mini-camp clearly out of shape. He was held out of practice and was doing conditioning work on the side.
Analysis: Last year, the fifth-round pick from Florida State rushed for 517 yards and scored seven touchdowns, and he tied an NFL rookie record by scoring in each of his first six games. However, he was hampered by injuries and missed five full games and parts of two others.
|6/15/2016||Robert Meachem, NO, WR|
|Meachem, who practiced with the Saints on Tuesday on a tryout basis, was not at practice on Wednesday.
Analysis: Coach Sean Payton said Meachem has had a foot problem.
|6/15/2016||Darrelle Revis, NYJ, CB|
|Revis participated in practice Wednesday for the first time since having surgery on his right wrist in March.
Analysis: Revis, who had surgery 13 weeks ago, took part in position drills during the second day of minicamp, but did not practice during team drills - something he said Tuesday that he hoped to be able to do when training camp starts in late-July
|6/15/2016||Tajae Sharpe, Ten, WR|
|Sharpe had worked his way up through the team's OTAs, and the only player drafted from Massachusetts has stayed with the first-team the first two days of the Titans' three-day minicamp.
Analysis: Coach Mike Mularkey's goal in playing Sharpe with the first-team offense isn't providing extra incentive. That's only the by-product. Sharpe impressed quickly by running precise routes and showing off hands catching balls.
|6/15/2016||Danny Woodhead, SD, RB|
|Woodhead went down with a sprained left ankle during the Chargers' minicamp Wednesday and stayed down for several minutes. He eventually got up and walked off the field on his own power.
Analysis: Woodhead led the team with 80 catches, 755 receiving yards and six touchdown receptions last season while also rushing 98 times for 336 yards and three scores.
|6/15/2016||Keenan Allen, SD, WR|
|Allen agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Chargers on Wednesday, keeping him with the team through the 2020 season.
Analysis: Allen was on his way to a stellar year last season, when he had 67 catches for 725 yards and four touchdowns before a season-ending injury in Week 8.
|6/15/2016||Eugene Monroe, Bal, T|
|The Ravens released Monroe on Wednesday after a potential trade with the Giants fell through.
Analysis: Monroe was limited to six games last year because of a shoulder injury and has not practiced since having season-ending surgery. He has started 90 games since the Jaguars selected him with the eighth overall pick in 2009.
|6/15/2016||Marquess Wilson, Chi, WR|
|Wilson refractured his left foot during the Bears' minicamp workout Tuesday and is scheduled to have surgery.
Analysis: Wilson finished with career bests of 28 receptions and 464 yards in 11 games last season. He has 47 catches for 617 yards and two touchdowns since being drafted in the seventh round in 2013.
|6/14/2016||Jamaal Charles, KC, RB|
|Charles was on the practice field Tuesday for the start of the Chiefs' three-day minicamp.
Analysis: Charles has been ahead of schedule after having surgery last season to repair a torn ACL in his right knee suffered in a Week 5 game against the Bears.
|6/14/2016||Brandon Marshall, Den, LB|
|The Broncos signed Marshall to a four-year contract extension Tuesday worth $32 million. He will make about $2.5 million in 2016, and his new deal kicks in the following year and runs through 2020.
Analysis: Marshall recorded 101 tackles, 1 1/2 sacks and one interception in 16 games last season with the Broncos.
|6/14/2016||Darrelle Revis, NYJ, CB|
|Revis had offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, but said during Jets' minicamp Tuesday that it is healing well and he expects to be ready to participate at the start of training camp late next month.
Analysis: Revis has been unable to practice so far this offseason because of the wrist, which was injured early last season.
|6/14/2016||Reshad Jones, Mia, S|
|Jones has joined minicamp after missing the first day of the mandatory sessions in a contract dispute.
Analysis: Jones had also skipped Miami's earlier organized team activities, which were voluntary, but he reported Wednesday for the second of three minicamp practices.
|6/14/2016||Victor Cruz, NYG, WR|
|Cruz surprised many by running routes and catching passes during individual drills at the opening day of the Giants' three-day minicamp Tuesday.
Analysis: Cruz, who has played in only six games in the past two seasons because of knee and calf injuries, expects to be a full-go for training camp.
|6/14/2016||Kawann Short, Car, DT|
|Short showed up for the Panthers' mandatory minicamp Tuesday, but he kept all other comments to himself in regards to his contract.
Analysis: Short, who is in the final year of his rookie contract and could be in line for a huge pay increase, had a breakout season with 10 1/2 sacks in 2015 and was selected to his first Pro Bowl.
|6/14/2016||Darren McFadden, Dal, RB|
|McFadden will miss up to eight weeks with a broken left elbow suffered at home in a Memorial Day accident.
Analysis: McFadden, who finished fourth in the NFL with 1,089 rushing yards last season, is a possibility for the regular-season opener Sept. 11 against the Giants. He will likely begin the season behind fourth overall pick Ezekiel Elliott, who is competing with former Redskins Pro Bowl running back Alfred Morris for offseason reps.
|6/14/2016||Joey Bosa, SD, DE|
|The contract standoff between Bosa and the San Diego Chargers continues and agent Todd France has no regrets over keeping his client out of the team's recent minicamp.
Analysis: The Chargers are insisting on having offset language in Bosa's rookie contract because every player in the organization - including quarterback Philip Rivers - has the terms in his contract. Chargers president of football operations John Spanos feels the situation can still be resolved before training camp starts on July 30.
