Quarterback

QB | Jay Cutler | Chicago Bears | Free Agents

Olsen and QB Jay Cutler ran into Owens Sunday, May 23, when the two went out after minicamp wrapped and then made plans to meet up with Owens later that night.

Running Back

RB | Marion Barber III | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones indicated Tuesday, May 25, that he sees no reason for RB Marion Barber III's role to change, reports ESPNDallas.com's Tim MacMahon.

He's just in great shape. He looks as good out here just in these initial practices as I've seen him look in his career. You could easily go from there and look at what his role might be, and it'd certainly be on par with anything he's done."
