Fantasy football players in the news

Quarterback

QB | Jason Campbell | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
Oakland Raiders QB Jason Campbell and DL Richard Seymour are assembling teammates in the Atlanta area for workouts beginning Monday, May 23. Campbell anticipates 25 to 30 players participating, with camp running for five days. "We could have had more," Campbell noted, "but the problem is we have something like 25 guys who are free agents, and a lot of them don't know if they're gonna be restricted or unrestricted, and those guys don't want to risk anything, and it sounds like they'll just chill." Campbell will bring two of his trainers down to Atlanta with him and has secured the use of quality facilities. He also wants the trip to be about more than just football, however. He is hoping to replicate some of the bonding that would usually be going on in May, a time generally spent together during organized team activities and minicamps.

Running Back

RB | Anthony Allen | Baltimore Ravens | Draft
Baltimore Ravens RB Anthony Allen, selected by the team in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, wants to make teams pay for not picking him sooner. "I want to make all the other teams that passed on me sick to their stomach," Allen said. "I'm going in with more than a chip on my shoulder because of all of the people who doubted me. I'm going to Baltimore with something to prove."


Place Kicker

PK | Mason Crosby | Green Bay Packers | Free Agents

Offensive Tackle

OT | Gosder Cherilus | Detroit Lions | Injury
Detroit Lions OT Gosder Cherilus (knee) said his goal is to be ready for the start of the upcoming season, whenever it is. "That's the hope," Cherilus said. "That's what I'm pushing for. I don't see why not." Cherilus will have a better idea where he's at in his recovery from microfracture knee surgery when he visits his doctor again in four weeks. For now, all signs are positive. Cherilus moved freely in position drills during a workout Monday, May 16. He took part in the same running and strength-training workout as the rest of his teammates and said afterward his knee felt "good."

OT | Ray Willis | Seattle Seahawks | Free Agents
