  • Todd Bowles says Geno Smith can be starter
    Coach Todd Bowles thinks Geno Smith can be the Jets’ starter.

    Advice: "I think Geno can be a good starter, but he’s got to prove it in training camp like everybody else," Bowles said. "He’s been in the system a year. We’ll see what he does." It’s not more than coachspeak, but the Jets have thrown support behind Smith all offseason. Despite a standstill in contract talks, Ryan Fitzpatrick remains likely to be the Week 1 starter.

  • Seattle could still add veteran quarterback
    ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia wouldn’t be surprised if Seattle adds a veteran quarterback.

    Advice: The Seahawks like Trevone Boykin as Russell Wilson’s backup, but want to see how he does at training camp. Seattle hasn’t been connected to any quarterbacks since Tarvaris Jackson’s arrest. Outside of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jimmy Clausen, Charlie Whitehurst, T.J. Yates, and Michael Vick are the top free agents. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:05 pm

  • Joe Flacco (ACL) ready for training camp
    Joe Flacco avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

    Advice: Just as expected. Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in Week 11 last year, but his recovery progressed ahead of schedule and he resumed throwing without restrictions after OTAs. "He looks 100 percent to me," Kamar Aiken observed earlier this month. "Looks the exact same." Flacco isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but he has a favorable early-season schedule and last year's Ravens led the NFL in pass attempts. Flacco is a sneaky bet to finish this year as a low-end QB1.

  • Drew Brees, Saints haven't talked since March
    Walk-year QB Drew Brees said he and the Saints have not seriously discussed a contract extension since March.

    Advice: Brees is set to count $30 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. With free agency all but wrapped up, the Saints do not have much incentive to lower his cap charge with an extension, and it does not appear they are terribly concerned about Brees bolting next spring. Brees has said he will not discuss a new deal during the season, giving the two sides around a month and a half to work something out. It would still be surprising if Brees entered the season without a new deal, but it is clearly not out of the question. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:33 am

  • Blaine Gabbert has early 'edge' on Kaepernick
    Blaine Gabbert "has a good grasp" of Chip Kelly’s offense.

    Advice: Gabbert is the favorite to start after getting most of the first-team reps this offseason. "Many in the organization" see him as a better fit than Colin Kaepernick, who missed OTAs and was limited at minicamp. Even with Kaepernick ready for training camp, it sounds like the starting job is Gabbert’s to lose. The 49ers can potentially save $2 million in roster bonuses from benching Kaepernick.
