  • Report: Adrian Peterson still wants a trade
    A source tells Yahoo that Adrian Peterson still wants to be traded.

    Advice: Despite not getting moved during the draft, Peterson isn't backing off. He's skipping this week's OTAs, reportedly intends to sit out all of the Vikings' offseason workouts and "has not yet made a decision" about holding out of June mandatory minicamp or training camp. Peterson is apparently still fuming about the way the Vikings failed to support him during last year's child-abuse scandal. Regardless, the team has all the leverage here as he's under contract for $12.75 million. It's hard to see Peterson passing on that money in order to make a statement. Rotoworld.com

  • Ray Rice not on Cowboys radar
    ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes free agent Ray Rice's absence from the Cowboys' recent running back workouts suggests Rice is not on the team's radar.

    Advice: The Cowboys recently worked out a who's who of running back washouts, including Daniel Thomas, Felix Jones, and Ben Tate. Rice was not invited, nor was Chris Johnson. The players brought in to try out were likely the top backs on Dallas' emergency list. Rice and Johnson may not be on the list at all. Rotoworld.com

  • James White the favorite for third-down role
    NESN's Doug Kyed believes second-year RB James White is the favorite to replace Shane Vereen as the passing-down back.

    Advice: After a hype-filled preseason, White only managed 31 offensive snaps last season and spent most of the year inactive. Viewed as a plus pass catcher and blocker coming out of Wisconsin, White has the ability to beat out Travaris Cadet and Dion Lewis for the Patriots' third-down role, but he will have to show more explosion and playmaking ability this preseason to win the job.

  • Buzz continues on Redskins rookie Matt Jones
    CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir believes rookie RB Matt Jones will have "a bigger role in 2015 than some are anticipating."

    Advice: El-Bashir concedes Alfred Morris is the starter but believes Jones will earn snaps as a third-down back. El-Bashir's colleague Rich Tandler agrees, saying Jones "will spend a lot of time catching passes and doing what he can to master pass protection" this offseason. Morris should be the early-down thumper, but he offers almost nothing in the passing game. If Jones is a quick study in pass protection, he should beat out Silas Redd and Chris Thompson for third-down duties. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman and Coleman will get 'equal reps'
    ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure believes Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman will see "equal reps" in a two-back system.

    Advice: It is unlikely Coleman and Freeman finish the season in a perfect timeshare, but it make sense for Atlanta to let their two young backs duke it out in training camp and early in the season. As the hand-picked back of the current regime, Coleman should be seen as the favorite to win the lion's share of the work, but his questionable fit in OC Kyle Shanahan's scheme could make his transition to the NFL difficult. A more natural fit in a zone-blocking scheme, Freeman could earn a bigger role than anticipated in training camp, especially if Coleman struggles. Rotoworld.com
