Quarterback

QB | Sam Bradford | St. Louis Rams | Fantasy
St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo said there is no timetable for QB Sam Bradford to start, according to Steve Wyche, of NFL.com. Bradford took snaps with the first team as OTAs and minicamps progressed.

QB | Kellen Clemens | New York Jets | Free Agents
According to a poll of more than a dozen New York Jets starters, the overwhelming majority favored QB Kellen Clemens over free-agent QB Mark Brunell (Saints) as the team's backup quarterback in 2010, reports Manish Mehta, of the New York Daily News. "Brunell? Isn't he like 50 years old?" said one player of Brunell, who will turn 40 in September.

QB | JaMarcus Russell | Free Agent | Free Agents
There is less than a 10 percent chance the New York Jets will sign free-agent QB JaMarcus Russell (Raiders), according to Manish Mehta, of the New York Daily News. The Jets made one exploratory call to Russell's agent but there has been no sign of interest since then.


Running Back

RB | Frank Gore | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore looked as explosive as ever and lightning quick with his cuts during OTAs and minicamp, according to CBSSports.com. However, coaches made sure to go easy on his reps. They know Gore works out like a madman while home in Miami and that he has a strenuous season ahead of him.


Wide Receiver

WR | Vincent Jackson | San Diego Chargers | Draft
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is a big fan of San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Jackson, according to Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com. Shanahan nearly drafted Jackson in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft. The Redskins could be interested in Jackson should the Chargers decide to trade him.

WR | Brandon Marshall | Miami Dolphins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall (hip) said he expects to be at full speed when training camp starts, reports Brian Biggane, of the Palm Beach Post. He said his surgically repaired hip is feeling great.


Offensive Tackle

OT | Marcus McNeill | San Diego Chargers | Free Agents
The San Diego Chargers have no intention of trading restricted free-agent OT Marcus McNeill and would consider placing the franchise tag on McNeill next offseason if they are not able to reach an agreement on a new deal, sources told Kevin Acee, of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

OT | Flozell Adams | Free Agent | Free Agents
Unrestricted free-agent OT Flozell Adams' (Cowboys) agent, Jordan Woy, said he is still in contact with several teams who are interested in Adams, according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. Woy said he is trying to determine which situation is best for Adams.

OT | Levi Jones | Free Agent | Free Agents
Unrestricted free-agent OT Levi Jones (Redskins) could be an option for the Pittsburgh Steelers if they decide to sign a veteran offensive tackle, according to ESPN.com's James Walker.


Guard

OG | Chester Pitts | Free Agent | Injury, Free Agents
Unrestricted free-agent OG Chester Pitts (Texans) was planning on working out for teams July 15, but the workout has not been scheduled because he is still recovering from microfracture surgery, a source told Tom Pelissero, of 1500ESPN.com.


Defensive Line

DL | Jay Ratliff | Dallas Cowboys | Injury
The Dallas Cowboys may have DT Jay Ratliff (elbows) do more work than normal at the start of training camp because he missed most of the team's offseason workouts because of elbow surgeries, according to Todd Archer, of The Dallas Morning News.
