Fantasy football players in the news

QB | John Beck | Washington Redskins | Free Agents
Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley would not be surprised to see the team pursue another quarterback via free agency or trade. With QB Donovan McNabb likely out of the picture, QB John Beck is basically the starter by default. Cooley complemented both Beck and impending free-agent QB Rex Grossman but said the team's quarterback picture remains undecided. "In my opinion, we'll move forward into whatever training camp we have and they'll be a competition between Rex Grossman and John Beck," Cooley said. "Obviously we're going to have to bring someone else in. Do you bring in a bigger name? No one knows. Obviously, they passed on a lot of guys they had a chance to draft. So either they really like John Beck and Rex Grossman, or they have someone else in mind."

Running Back

RB | Brandon Jacobs | New York Giants | Free Agents
New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs said his future with the team is uncertain. Jacobs is under contract for two more seasons and will earn $4.65 million in 2011 and $4.9 million in 2012. The Giants also want to re-sign RB Ahmad Bradshaw, who will either be a restricted or unrestricted free agent. Keeping both running backs could be difficult if the Giants have to give Bradshaw a big contract.

RB | Kevin Faulk | New England Patriots | Injury, Free Agents

Wide Receiver

WR | Plaxico Burress | Free Agent | Free Agents
New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs has placed the Philadelphia Eagles as the leading candidate to land free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants) once football resumes because of Burress' friendship with QB Michael Vick and the fact that the Eagles are loaded with talent offensively. "I would hate to see him go to where I think he is going to go, that is from talking to him," Jacobs said of the Eagles when asked if he was talking about Philadelphia. "It is pretty tough to deal with all those different combinations. Plax is a Virginia guy, Vick is a Virginia guy. They went through sort of the same things and they got a lot of dynamic players down there. It wouldn't be a bad thing, he thinks, to go down there. He wants to win."

WR | Malcom Floyd | San Diego Chargers | Free Agents
The Chicago Bears could show interest in San Diego Chargers impending free-agent WR Malcom Floyd once free agency begins if they are willing to spend big money on a wide receiver.

WR | Jerricho Cotchery | New York Jets | Injury
New York Jets WR Jerricho Cotchery (back) is making progress from the back surgery he had in February but has said he misses the comfort level of rehabbing at the team's facility.
