Running Back

RB | Jerome Harrison | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Cleveland Browns RB Jerome Harrison's agent, Mitch Frankel, said Harrison does not plan to hold out of training camp, reports Nate Ulrich, of The Akron Beacon Journal. Harrison hasn't been happy with his contract, which is a one-year, $1.759 million deal.

RB | Montario Hardesty | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Cleveland Browns rookie RB Montario Hardesty's agent, Mitch Frankel, said negotiations will begin soon with the team, reports Nate Ulrich, of The Akron Beacon Journal. Hardesty, a second-round draft choice, is expected to be under contract before training camp begins.

RB | Matt Forte | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte worked hard during the offseason, improving on his lower body and upper body strength, according to running backs coach Tim Spencer on ChicagoBears.com. "He made a point to get back and get his body in better shape," Spencer said. Forte was healthy enough to play last year, but was rarely full speed due to injuries. Spencer said the team was looking for Forte to improve on his yards per carry and yards per catch last year, and they feel those will improve this season because Forte will be fresh. "He won't have to take the entire load. He can share it," Spencer said of Forte's role sharing touches with RB Chester Taylor. "Chester will do well, and they can kind of feed off each other," he added.

RB | Garrett Wolfe | Chicago Bears | Depth Chart Tidbit
Chicago Bears RBs Garrett Wolfe and Kahlil Bell will be fighting for the team's third tailback duties during training camp, according to running backs coach Tim Spencer on ChicagoBears.com. "They are obviously different backs. Kahlil is more of an inside runner ... Garrett is more of a scat back," Spencer said.


Linebacker

LB | Jordon Dizon | Detroit Lions | Depth Chart Tidbit
Detroit Lions LB Jordon Dizon doesn't fit the Lions' new trend of size at the linebacker position, reports Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com. Dizon, 6-foot and 232 pounds, will have to compensate with consistency, playmaking ability and support against the pass. His name has not been mentioned as a potential replacement for Ernie Sims, who was traded earlier this year. The coaching staff also has an issue with his durability.
