QB | Matt Hasselbeck | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said the team's quarterback competition between QBs Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker remains even heading into training camp. "I am really proud of both quarterbacks. We are very pleased with both of them," Palmer said. "They're even. It is a competition right now. Coach Munchak has made that statement and when the time comes and everyone is comfortable with who the starting quarterback is, then Coach Munchak will announce it."

Running Back

RB | Matt Forte | Chicago Bears | Free Agents
As of early Monday, July 16, the Chicago Bears have yet to come to terms on a new deal with franchise free-agent RB Matt Forte. Forte indicated progress had been made during the last few weeks and he entered the weekend optimistic about securing a lucrative contract by the deadline. However, neither the Bears nor Forte's agent, Adisa Bakari, have spoken publicly to clarify the status of negotiations.

Wide Receiver

WR | Mike Wallace | Pittsburgh Steelers | Free Agents
The Pittsburgh Steelers believe they will get a deal done with restricted free-agent WR Mike Wallace in time for training camp.

WR | Devin Hester | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
Chicago Bears WR Devin Hester will likely see a decrease in playing time this upcoming season; however, he could be more productive. Offensive coordinator Mike Tice will make sure he gets Hester in position to make plays whether it's in the backfield or at receiver.

WR | Kendall Wright | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright has a good chance to enter training camp as the No. 3 wide receiver.

WR | Wes Welker | New England Patriots | Fantasy

Defensive Line

DL | Myles Wade | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Green Bay Packers are showing significant interest in undrafted free-agent DL Myles Wade (Portland State), according to sources.

DL | Tyson Alualu | Jacksonville Jaguars | Injury
Jacksonville Jaguars DTs Tyson Alualu (knee) is expected to be fully recovered from the knee surgery he had this offseason by the time the season starts.


CB | Will D. Allen | New England Patriots | Depth Chart Tidbit
New England Patriots CB Will D. Allen is fighting for a roster spot. His biggest competition is CB Sterling Moore. Allen shifted to safety during spring practices, but is also fighting for a role as an extra defensive back in sub packages.

CB | Terrell Thomas | New York Giants | Injury
New York Giants CB Terrell Thomas (knee) said he has been medically cleared to participate in training camp. The Giants may decide to bring Thomas along slowly at the start of camp because of his surgically repaired knee.

Strong Safety

SS | Gerald Sensabaugh | Dallas Cowboys | Injury
Dallas Cowboys SS Gerald Sensabaugh (knee), who had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee recently, could miss the start of training camp, according to sources. Sensabaugh missed several organized team activity workouts and the June minicamp. Sensabaugh will be able to report for rehab only July 25 when rookies, first-year players and quarterbacks practice. The hope is Sensabaugh can take part in the first full-squad practice July 30, but the team will be cautious.

SS | Jim Leonhard | Free Agent | Injury, Free Agents
Free-agent SS Jim Leonhard (Jets) said he is still hopeful of earning a spot at a team's training camp after suffering a knee injury last season. "I'm a free agent right now, hopefully in the next few weeks I get some workouts and get a contract," Leonhard said. "The knee is feeling great and I am ready to go. I am getting antsy, football is right around the corner and I don't have a team, kind of getting antsy ready to get back on that field. You just keep working, you keep grinding and good things are going to happen. I know I am going to be playing football somewhere this season, I just have to figure out where. I am excited for that day."
