  • Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray competing for 1 spot
    The Kansas City Star suggests Chiefs backup QBs Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray are competing for one roster spot.

    Advice: According to beat writer Terez Paylor, rookie Aaron Murray is "likely a lock" behind starter Alex Smith. Daniel is due a $2.35 million base salary and could be one-and-done in Kansas City after signing a three-year, $10 million contract last offseason. Bray has a rocket arm and prototypical size, but will have to take the next step in his development as a sophomore to unseat Daniel as the No. 2.

  • Browns will name QB by 3rd preseason game
    Coach Mike Pettine said he'll name his starting quarterback by the third preseason game.

    Advice: "I don't know if I'll set a date and kind of paint ourselves into a date, but it will be sooner than the third preseason game," Pettine said. The competition between Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer kicks off this week. The Akron Beacon-Journal recently predicted Hoyer will hold off Manziel, but Johnny Football brings the most to the table and should win the job as long as he performs and keeps his head on straight this summer. JFF has QB1 upside.

  • Toronto Argonauts sign UDFA QB Brett Smith
    The Toronto Argonauts have signed former Bucs QB Brett Smith.

    Advice: A draftnik favorite, dual-threat Smith lasted only 11 days with Tampa Bay after making 35 career starts at Wyoming, where he compiled a 17-18 record, 76:28 TD-to-INT ratio, and 20 rushing touchdowns. Only 22 years old, Smith could eventually resurface in the NFL if he gets stronger during his time in Canada.

  • Zach Mettenberger sucker punched at bar
    Titans rookie QB Zach Mettenberger was reportedly "sucker punched" at a Nashville bar over the weekend.

    Advice: According to the bar's owner, Mettenberger responded to a fellow bar patron yelling "Roll Tide," by saying "Good luck with that," then got hit. "I promise you that Mettenberger did not throw a punch," stated Steve Ford, owner of Loser's Most Wanted Bar & Grill. "He didn't do anything. The guy sucker-punched him in the eye, that's the bottom line, and the guy that punched him started running out the door. My door guys had to chase him down." Mettenberger is fine, but he probably needs to avoid situations like this going forward.

  • Cassel seen as 'heavy favorite' to start
    USA Today's Tom Pelissero considers Matt Cassel the "heavy favorite" to start at quarterback for the Vikings.

    Advice: Pelissero is a former longtime Vikings beat reporter, so his opinion is notable. Teddy Bridgewater was mixed in with the first-team offense this spring, but is pretty clearly behind Cassel. Tape gurus Greg Cosell and Ron Jaworski have both stated Cassel is a better fit for Norv Turner's offense than Bridgewater. Turner pushes the ball vertically, which is Bridgewater's weakness.

  • E.J. Manuel bulks up to 247 pounds
    ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported on SportsCenter that E.J. Manuel added ten pounds of muscle this offseason and is up to 247.

    Advice: Manuel's Scouting Combine measurement was 6-foot-4 5/8 and 237 pounds. The muscle gain is ostensibly an attempt to improve Manuel's durability after he missed six games as a rookie. Manuel's injuries were to his knee, however. The Bills are hoping for a sophomore leap from Manuel, but we remain skeptical.

  • Giants not talking extension with Eli
    Co-owner John Mara told the New York Post the Giants have had no contract extension talks with Eli Manning.

    Advice: Manning, 33, is currently signed through 2015 at base salaries of $15.15 million this year, and $17 million next year. ESPN's Dan Graziano reported in April that the Giants are concerned Eli has entered his decline phase after leading the NFL in interceptions (27) last season. "We haven't even really discussed that yet," Mara said of a new deal. "We'll discuss that at the appropriate time. Obviously it's our hope that he finish his career as a Giant."

  • Redskins offense to resemble Mike Shanahan's
    Robert Griffin III said the Redskins' offense under Jay Gruden will resemble Mike Shanahan's.

    Advice: "Having two years experience running a pro-level offense, West Coast type, this is very similar," Griffin said. "All the concepts translate over. The reads are similar. It's just about the philosophy of the coach." Washington projects to be more pass-heavy under Gruden, but run-game system is expected to be similar. The major difference is that Griffin will see fewer designed runs. The scheme continuity adds to Griffin's bounce-back appeal. Griffin is currently a value pick at his late sixth-round ADP.

  • Raiders want Schaub to start all 16 games
    CSN Bay Area believes Matt Schaub will start the entire 2014 season "if all goes according to plan."

    Advice: The Raiders want to give Derek Carr a year to develop behind Schaub, and don't think he's ready to compete. Schaub will need to be an effective game manager to keep the starting job, but it would be shocking if he made all 16 starts. The odds are high that Carr replaces Schaub at some point this season.

  • Brian Hoyer to hold off Johnny Football?
    The Akron-Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich believes Brian Hoyer will hold off Johnny Manziel for the starting quarterback job in Cleveland.

    Advice: Ulrich cites coach Mike Pettine's consistent support of Hoyer and the organization's desire to sign him to a contract extension as evidence the Browns are comfortable entering the season with Hoyer as their starter. While that may be the case, Manziel is clearly the future in Cleveland, and he will get the nod if he performs during camp. At the very latest, we see Manziel taking over Kyle Shanahan's offense by Week 5, following the Browns' Week 4 bye.

  • Clausen in driver's seat for Bears No. 2 QB
    According to ESPN Chicago, Jimmy Clausen "appears poised" to unseat Jordan Palmer for No. 2 quarterback duties behind Jay Cutler.

    Advice: Clausen "quickly gained ground" on Palmer at minicamp and appears to be in the driver's seat for the backup job. It's an important competition because Cutler has missed 13 starts the past four seasons. Considering the magic coach Marc Trestman worked with last year's backup, Josh McCown, it could be a real chance for Clausen to get his career back on its tracks. 26-year-old Clausen is worth a look in particularly deep Dynasty fantasy leagues.

  • Brian Hoyer: No limitations in training camp
    Brian Hoyer (knee) expects to practice without limitation in training camp.

    Advice: "Obviously we're going to see how the knee's feeling, but I'm geared up and ready to go and excited," Hoyer said. "I can't wait for next Saturday." It's good news for Hoyer in his battle with Johnny Manziel, as he'll have little room for error as he attempts to hold off the league's most buzzed about prospect.

  • Alex Smith still eyeing long-term Chiefs deal
    Walk-year QB Alex Smith remains hopeful of signing a long-term agreement with the Chiefs.

    Advice: Speaking Thursday, Smith said the sides have had ongoing talks. "I'd love to have it done," Smith said. "But when you're talking about this many years and that type of deal, you want it done right. You want both sides happy." The Chiefs are in a tough spot, as Smith, 30, has everything you'd want in a bridge quarterback, but hasn't proven to be someone you build an offense around. A 2-3 year deal could end up being the compromise.

  • A.J. Green confident of Andy Dalton deal
    A.J. Green remains confident the Bengals will reach a long-term agreement with Andy Dalton.

    Advice: "I know they know he's the guy," Green said confidently. "I feel like they're going to get something done before the season starts." Green has been outspoken in his support of his quarterback, but the team has been less effusive. Owner Mike Brown referred to the situation as a "dilemma" in March. Never known to overpay for anything, Brown is likely to drive a hard bargain with his middle-of-the-road quarterback.
