Player Notes

  • Goodell will preside over Brady's appeal
    The NFL has rejected the NFL Players Association's motion for Roger Goodell to recuse himself from Tom Brady's four-game suspension appeal.

    Advice: The rejection may not bode well for Tom Terrific's chances of having his ban eliminated, unless of course the Patriots have a wink-nod agreement with Goodell, as has been rumored and/or speculated. We still tentatively expect Brady's suspension to be reduced, but probably not rescinded altogether. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Carr not considering hand surgery
    A league source tells CSN Bay Area that Derek Carr isn't considering hand surgery.

    Advice: Carr's agent had already publicly decreed he wouldn't be going under the knife, and it's apparently the same story behind the scenes. Per beat writer Scott Bair, Carr is expected to resume throwing "well before training camp," but isn't guaranteed to be ready for next month's minicamp. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: SD now 'optimistic' about Rivers deal
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers are "optimistic" about signing contract-year QB Philip Rivers to an extension.

    Advice: In March, Rivers said "nothing" could change his mind about not signing an extension, but his tone has softened dramatically in recent weeks. Perhaps Rivers has come around on the idea of playing in Los Angeles, or believes the Bolts won't bolt San Diego. Rivers' attitude adjustment has coincided with the de facto end of trade season. Where he once appeared intent on playing hardball, Rivers now seems likely to sign an extension with the only team he's ever known. Rotoworld.com

  • Carson two months away from full clearance
    Carson Palmer (ACL) is roughly two months away from full clearance.

    Advice: Palmer is approaching seven months removed from his latest ACL tear. He's been participating in individual drills and 7-on-7s at minicamp, putting him on track for full 11-on-11 work in August. Palmer's 16-game pace last year was 4,336 passing yards, 29.3 touchdowns and eight interceptions -- top-10 fantasy quarterback numbers. But it's worth noting he faced some of the league's worst defenses in his six outings (SD, WAS, OAK, PHL, DAL, STL). Rotoworld.com

  • Jets OC: Geno Smith will 'probably' start Wk 1
    Jets OC Chan Gailey said there will be no quarterback competition heading into training camp, and Geno Smith will "probably" be the starter Week 1.

    Advice: This comes as a big surprise. Gailey all but locked in Smith as his starter, basically saying Geno won't lose the job in training camp. Gailey went on to say Smith can "make every throw in the book." Smith's talent hasn't been his problem; turnovers in bunches have been the issue his first two seasons. It appears Ryan Fitzpatrick will open the summer as the clear No. 2. Rotoworld.com
