Quarterback

QB | Donovan McNabb | Washington Redskins | Fantasy
Washington Redskins QB Donovan McNabb worked out with former Philadelphia Eagles teammates Wednesday, June 22. He was among the half-dozen or so players practicing on artificial turf at a complex in New Jersey. The players did agility drills with cones and weight training with medicine balls. "I'm just focused on working out; it's what I do in the offseason," McNabb said. "So, working with a great group of guys."

QB | Bruce Gradkowski | Oakland Raiders | Fantasy
The Cincinnati Bengals might be interested in bringing in QB Bruce Gradkowski to compete with rookie QB Andy Dalton. He has ties to new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden already, and the team will need a veteran if QB Carson Palmer elects to retire.


Running Back

RB | Michael Bush | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
Oakland Raiders RB Michael Bush could become an unrestricted free agent, if the minimum number of years for unrestricted free agency will move back to four years once a new labor deal is reached.

RB | Tiki Barber | Free Agent | Free Agents
The agent for free-agent RB Tiki Barber (Giants) said Wednesday, June 22, that two teams have shown serious interest in Barber. "We feel like we already know where we're going (to sign)," added the agent.


Wide Receiver

WR | Plaxico Burress | Free Agent | Free Agents
Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley said the team must acquire a go-to wide receiver, particularly if the team does not sign impending free-agent WR Santana Moss. "I'm sure we'll try to sign Santana Moss back, but we need a big-time receiver," Cooley said. "We've got to have someone step in and fill that position." Cooley added the team should try to pursue free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants). "In my opinion, Plaxico Burress probably is a guy that's humbled such as Michael Vick was, a lot, in the same situation. If you were going to take a risk on a guy that's a good player, he's probably the guy you're going to take a risk on. He'll probably step in a locker room, keep his mouth shut, work hard and try to earn his way back into the league the first season."


Tight End

TE | Zach Miller | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
Oakland Raiders TE Zach Miller could become an unrestricted free agent, if the minimum number of years for unrestricted free agency will move back to four years once a new labor deal is reached.

TE | Chris Cooley | Washington Redskins | Free Agents
Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley said the team must acquire a go-to wide receiver, particularly if the team does not sign impending free-agent WR Santana Moss. "I'm sure we'll try to sign Santana Moss back, but we need a big-time receiver," Cooley said. "We've got to have someone step in and fill that position." Cooley added the team should try to pursue free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants). "In my opinion, Plaxico Burress probably is a guy that's humbled such as Michael Vick was, a lot, in the same situation. If you were going to take a risk on a guy that's a good player, he's probably the guy you're going to take a risk on. He'll probably step in a locker room, keep his mouth shut, work hard and try to earn his way back into the league the first season."


Offensive Tackle

OT | Doug Free | Dallas Cowboys | Free Agents
The Dallas Cowboys are planning to reach a long-term deal with impending free-agent OT Doug Free once the lockout ends. "He'll be our No. 1 priority when things start up," executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "We want to sign Doug back." Owner/general manager Jerry Jones acknowledges that it will be significantly more difficult to keep Free if four-year veterans are allowed to become unrestricted free agents once a new labor deal is reached. "Under one set of circumstances, we've got to sign Free," Jones said. "Under another set, we may not be able to keep him. We'll see where we are."

OT | Jeremy Trueblood | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Free Agents
Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent OT Jeremy Trueblood said he believes he will have to compete for the starting right tackle job if he re-signed with the team. He does not expect a starting job to be guaranteed from whichever team he signs with.


Guard

OG | Davin Joseph | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Free Agents
Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent OT Jeremy Trueblood and OG Davin Joseph hope to re-sign with the team once free agency begins. Trueblood said the two work out together every day and have talked about trying to continue to play together.


Linebacker

LB | A.J. Hawk | Green Bay Packers | Injury
Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk (wrist), who had surgery on his right wrist in February, said the "last piece of hardware" was removed two weeks ago. He doesn't expect to miss time during training camp, if there is one.

LB | Scott McKillop | San Francisco 49ers | Injury
San Francisco 49ers LB Scott McKillop (knee) was told he is on track to be cleared to practice if the team opens training camp, as scheduled, July 28.
