Quarterback

QB | Ryan Fitzpatrick | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said Monday, May 23, that he was impressed with the turnout in the first of five informal workouts this week. He was one of 35 members of the team, including RB Fred Jackson. "It always helps when you're working out with other people, especially your teammates," Fitzpatrick said. "I thought it went as well as expected today."

QB | Josh Freeman | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Fantasy
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman said Monday, May 23, that he has been organizing team workouts since late March, and he pledges the team will be ready once the labor situation is resolved. "You have got to be up to speed and be ready to go out and win football games and we're taking steps right now to be in a position like that," Freeman said.

QB | Marc Bulger | Baltimore Ravens | Free Agents
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent QB Marc Bulger is believed to be uninterested in signing with the Arizona Cardinals once the lockout is over.


Running Back

RB | Knowshon Moreno | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
The Denver Broncos now view RB Knowshon Moreno as being more of a situational player for them. Moreno has made more impact plays in the NFL as a receiver. His role under head coach John Fox likely will be more of a third-down player.

RB | Reggie Bush | New Orleans Saints | Free Agents, Fantasy
If New Orleans Saints RB Reggie Bush does not return to the team for the 2011 season, he will be more sought after than some people think as a free agent. Teams envision using Bush in a variety of ways. He could be used as a potential slot receiver or a change-of-pace back, who gets maybe 10-12 touches per game as a back and return man.

RB | Fred Jackson | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said Monday, May 23, that he was impressed with the turnout in the first of five informal workouts this week. He was one of 35 members of the team, including RB Fred Jackson. "It always helps when you're working out with other people, especially your teammates," Fitzpatrick said. "I thought it went as well as expected today."

RB | Cadillac Williams | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Free Agents
The St. Louis Rams could show interest in Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Cadillac Williams once the lockout is over.


Fullback

FB | Vonta Leach | Houston Texans | Free Agents
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said it is vital that the team re-sign impending free-agent FB Vonta Leach. "I can't imagine our offense without him," Johnson said. "I don't know who we'll replace him with. He's the best at what he does."


Wide Receiver

WR | Lee Evans | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey is hoping to expand the way WR Lee Evans contributes to the offense. Gailey will continue to use Evans to attack defenses downfield, but he wants to see Evans become as much of a threat on short and intermediate routes as the long ones. Evans knows he has to do more things to be acknowledged as a complete receiver. "I think that's a fair statement," Evans said. "But you won't get it until you actually do it and do it consistently. I've done it at times, but you've got to be able to do it consistently. Try to be as complete as you can. That's my focus when I come out here to work out and to train, not just to be one-dimensional but to try to be able to do many different things because as far as the season you've got to have more than one way to win."

WR | Andre Johnson | Houston Texans | Free Agents
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has encouraged Oakland Raiders impending free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha to sign with the team when the lockout ends and he becomes an unrestricted free agent. "I've talked to him, and every time I hit him with it, it seems like it's on his mind," Johnson said. "I don't even say, 'Hey, man, what's up?' The first thing I say is, 'What's up? Are you coming to Houston? What are you going to do?'"


Linebacker

LB | Matt McCoy | Seattle Seahawks | Free Agents
The Seattle Seahawks may not consider impending free-agent LB Matt McCoy one of their top priorities in free agency even though he was the leading tackler on special teams.


Cornerback

CB | Nnamdi Asomugha | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has encouraged Oakland Raiders impending free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha to sign with the team when the lockout ends and he becomes an unrestricted free agent. "I've talked to him, and every time I hit him with it, it seems like it's on his mind," Johnson said. "I don't even say, 'Hey, man, what's up?' The first thing I say is, 'What's up? Are you coming to Houston? What are you going to do?'"

CB | Carlos Rogers | Washington Redskins | Free Agents
The Dallas Cowboys could show interest in Washington Redskins impending free-agent CB Carlos Rogers this offseason if they are not able to sign Oakland Raiders impending free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha.
