  • GM: Big Ben will be Steeler for life
    Speaking Monday, GM Kevin Colbert said he didn't "any circumstance" where Ben Roethlisberger did not finish his career with the Steelers.

    Advice: Roethlisberger's contract has become a talking point even though he's signed through the 2015 season. With their cavalier quarterback now 32 years of age, the Steelers have no reason to rush an extension.

  • Chiefs still talking contract w/ Alex Smith
    Speaking Monday, coach Andy Reid confirmed the Chiefs remain in long-term talks with walk-year QB Alex Smith.

    Advice: Smith said earlier this month that he remained hopeful of striking a deal. Despite the ongoing dialogue, there's been little indication the sides are close to an agreement. A bridge quarterback now on the wrong side of 30, Smith is a complicated long-term case.

  • Bridgewater, Cassel to begin splitting reps
    Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel will begin evenly splitting first-team reps on Wednesday.

    Advice: FOX's Jay Glazer reported Sunday that was already the case. The Vikings had been including Christian Ponder in their quarterback rotation, but are ready to drop his token participation. Bridgewater has generated a ton of early camp buzz, but needs to translate it to strong preseason performances to beat out Cassel for Week 1 duties. Either way, Bridgewater will make starts this season.

  • Giants want Manning to be 70-percent passer
    The Giants want Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this season.

    Advice: It's a barrier breached only seven times in league history, most recently by Alex Smith in 2012 (who was benched). It's not even a vaguely realistic goal for a career 58.5 percent passer (an abysmal 57.5 in 2013), but shows just how serious the G-Men are about remaking their passing attack. Gone are long-developing downfield shots, and in are high-percentage quick passes.

  • Chad Henne has green light to audible at will
    Chad Henne has been given the green light to audible as much as he wants.

    Advice: Now in his second year in OC Jedd Fisch's scheme, Henne is getting plenty of leash. "If we have to throw it every down because they're giving so many guys at the line of scrimmage, we'll throw it," said the veteran bridge to Blake Bortles. Henne gets a little boost with the additions of Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, but this is still a backup-caliber player operating a ball-control offense. Even owners in two-QB leagues should be aiming higher.

  • Caldwell seeing improvement in Stafford
    Coach Jim Caldwell is "impressed" by how Matthew Stafford is performing early in training camp.

    Advice: Stafford has a firm grasp on the new scheme and is also flashing improved mechanics. "In every facet when he came back, I could see improvement - footwork, accuracy, timing, command of the offense, all of those things," Caldwell said. With Golden Tate and Eric Ebron added to an already potent attack, Stafford's arrow is pointing up. He's our No. 4 quarterback behind only Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees.

  • Ryan Mallett has the edge for No. 2 job
    Ryan Mallett has the edge over Jimmy Garoppolo for the Patriots' backup job.

    Advice: Second-round pick Garoppolo has had trouble with both the center exchange and interceptions so far in camp. He's a developmental prospect. Mallett, now in his contract year, is entrenched as Tom Brady's primary clipboard holder.

  • Arians: Thomas wants to show off his arm
    Coach Bruce Arians said fourth-round QB Logan Thomas "still has to learn when to throw the ball extremely hard and when to throw it accurately."

    Advice: Thomas has a unique skill set and Carson Palmer will turn 35 in December, so Dynasty owners should be monitoring the situation. We know that accuracy and touch are major issues for Thomas right now. "A strong armed, young quarterback has that problem. He gets all jacked up and wants to show it off," Arians said.

  • Tom Savage starts off as third-string QB
    Tom Savage opened camp as the third-string quarterback.

    Advice: Case Keenum is getting the second-team reps behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. On the first day of camp, Savage reportedly "struggled to find any consistency and missed his targets several times." Still, we'd tentatively expect the fourth-round rookie to pass up Keenum before camp is over. Savage was hand-picked by new coach Bill O'Brien.

  • Cassel, Bridgewater splitting 1st-team reps
    FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports rookie Teddy Bridgewater has already begun splitting first-team reps with Matt Cassel at Vikings camp.

    Advice: Glazer reports there is "hugeeee optimism" about Bridgewater among team brass, and he's "definitely been more impressive than they expected." Cassel remains the slight favorite to start on Opening Day, but Bridgewater has quickly made it an interesting camp battle. Bridgewater's passing strengths are at the short and intermediate levels. He could be a great fit with Kyle Rudolph.

  • Big Ben extension on hold until after season
    Steelers president Art Rooney II said the team will wait until next offseason to sign Ben Roethlisberger to a contract extension.

    Advice: Roethlisberger is signed for $23.7 million over the next two years, and will make $12.1 million in 2014 base salary. The Steelers have $6.37 million in cap space and plan on extending him after the season when there's more financial flexibility. "Ben wants to be part of a winning team, to be in a position to compete for championships, and he understands that in order to do that we need to try to keep as many of the other players around as we can," Rooney told "That's what he and I talked about. We did assure him that next year is the time frame in which we want to address it."

  • Brian Hoyer takes all the first-team reps
    Brian Hoyer took all the first-team reps during the opening practice of Browns camp.

    Advice: Hoyer looked good, moving comfortably despite the brace on his surgically-repaired right knee. Johnny Manziel opened camp with second-team offense. For now, all signs point to Hoyer opening the season as the Browns' starting quarterback.

  • Sanchez opens camp as No. 2 quarterback
    Mark Sanchez opened Eagles camp as the No. 2 quarterback.

    Advice: Sanchez is "competing" with Matt Barkley for the No. 2 role, but he is a heavy favorite to open the season as the backup. Neither quarterback will threaten Nick Foles' starting spot.

  • Ryan Nassib a 'train wreck' in training camp
    The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan said Giants QB Ryan Nassib "was a train wreck during Friday's practice."

    Advice: "One 8-yard throw to the far side probably missed his receiver by eight yards," Raanan said. "Nassib needs to get it together." The Giants will give every opportunity to a player they spent a fourth-round pick on just one year ago, but Nassib may not have the talent to capitalize. With New York traditionally only keeping two quarterbacks, Nassib is staring into the very real possibility he is cut.

  • Report: Browns 'alarmed' by Manziel behavior
    Sources tell the Cleveland Plain Dealer the Browns have been "alarmed" by the off-field actions of Johnny Manziel since trading up to select him with the 22nd overall pick in May's draft.

    Advice: The Plain Dealer reports the team was particularly bothered by a picture that surfaced of Manziel rolling a $20 bill in a bar bathroom, suggestive of someone preparing to use snort cocaine. "Some in the organization feel he's lost ground in the quarterback competition heading into camp," adds beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot. Manziel reportedly "regressed in practice" this spring, and team brass believes it resulted from "not enough dedication to the playbook." Sources also told Cabot the Browns "have been stunned by his non-stop antics" off the field. All signs continue to point to Brian Hoyer starting Week 1 against the Steelers.

  • Report: Browns expected to start Hoyer Week 1
    According to ESPN's Bob Holtzman, the "feeling in the locker room" is the Browns will start Brian Hoyer in Week 1.

    Advice: Holtzman expects coach Mike Pettine to make the announcement "well before" the third preseason game, which is when camp battles are usually decided. In other words, the Browns may have already internally chosen Hoyer over Johnny Manziel. "We're all expecting Hoyer to start," one player told Holtzman. There were murmurs after the draft that the coaching staff didn't want Manziel, and that he was essentially handpicked by owner Jimmy Haslam. Pettine suggested in an ESPN Cleveland interview earlier this week that Manziel could spend his rookie season as a "package quarterback," similar to how Colin Kaepernick opened his career in San Francisco, and how Donovan McNabb did in Philadelphia.

  • Sam Bradford (knee) full-go for start of camp
    Coach Jeff Fisher said Sam Bradford (knee) is full-go for the start of training camp.

    Advice: "Sam is in great shape," Fisher said. "He's ready to go. We don't have (reservations) - right now as we speak, as camp starts - he's full-go. If we need to back him down here and there, we'll back him down." Bradford tore his ACL in Week 7 and participated in spring practices. Fisher added the Rams may hold him out of the preseason opener as a precaution, but he will get some exhibition work. He's entering the summer as a back-end QB2.

  • Ryan Tannehill expected to run more in 2014
    The Dolphins are expected to implement read-option plays into their offense this season.

    Advice: With old Chip Kelly OC Bill Lazor now running the show, the Dolphins want to take advantage of Ryan Tannehill's athleticism. Cement-footed Nick Foles quietly had three rushing TDs and 221 rushing yards in only ten starts under Kelly and Lazor last season. Tannehill, a college wide receiver, has managed 449 yards rushing and three touchdowns through his first two seasons. Adding a run element to his repertoire would be a boost. He's a solid two-QB-league target.

  • G-Men hoping to push the tempo on offense
    The Giants' offense "wants to go fast" this season.

    Advice: Receiver Jerrel Jernigan says the G-Men are "pushing for 70 or more plays per game." That's a number only two teams, the Broncos and Patriots, reached last season. The Giants averaged just 61.75, good for sixth-to-last in the league. "I'm still waiting for them to call up a huddle in practice," DE Mathias Kiwanuka said Thursday. "The intention of this offense is to cause chaos." The more plays, the better for Eli Manning and his intriguing receiver corps in fantasy.

  • Pettine suggests Manziel could be package QB
    Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team will consider using Johnny Manziel as a package player during his rookie year.

    Advice: Unless Pettine is bluffing, he's serious about Brian Hoyer as Cleveland's Week 1 starter. "That's how Colin Kaepernick got his start in the NFL, as a package quarterback," Pettine noted. "On the other side of the ball, I've seen that give defenses some trouble." Kaepernick gashed Pettine's Jets defense for 50 yards and a touchdown on five runs as a backup during the 2012 season.

  • 'So much emphasis' on Eli throwing quicker's Ian Rapoport reports there's "so much emphasis" on getting Eli Manning to get rid of the ball quicker this season.

    Advice: Per Rapoport, new OC Ben McAdoo is committed to "simplifying things," and that Manning has been a "willing student." It's the Philip Rivers approach to rejuvenation for an offense that had grown stagnant the past two seasons. A quick-hitting, timing-based attack could do wonders for Manning as he throws to a receiver corps with serious YAC ability.
