Bills | Donald Trump unlikely to purchase team

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 22:49:51 -0700

The Buffalo Bills are "very, very unlikely" to be purchased by Donald Trump, according to the billionaire. "We'll see what happens. Everyone knows I'm bidding," he said in an interview Monday with Fox News. "But many other people will be bidding. I would say the chances are very, very unlikely because I'm not going to do something totally stupid -- maybe a little bit stupid, but not totally stupid."

Cardinals | Major weight discrepancy for John Abraham

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 22:45:25 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LB John Abraham was listed at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds in the DeKalb County, Georgia, police records. Abraham is listed at 263 pounds in the Cardinals' program.

FANTASY TIP: While it is quite common for players to be billed larger than they really are, this is an abnormal difference. For now, chalk it up to a mistake. Abraham has more to worry about after his recent DUI arrest, such as a potential suspension from the NFL.

Raiders | Counting on Menelik Watson

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 22:33:28 -0700

Oakland Raiders OT Menelik Watson is slated to start at right tackle. The coaching staff has confidence in his ability after what was largely viewed as a disappointing 2013 season. Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said, "You don't see men of his size with the kind of feet that he has. We've seen growth from him. We'll know more when we get into live situations, but we've got high expectations, and he has high expectations, as well." Watson said he has learned a lot about conditioning his body and understanding how to prepare from watching veterans, since he began playing football in 2011.

Bears | Jimmy Clausen has strong practice

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 21:17:38 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen was accurate with his throws during practice Monday, July 28, and he led a touchdown drive during a two-minute drill. Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com believes Clausen is "very much" in the mix for the backup QB job.

Panthers | Cam Newton taking it easy in practice

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 21:09:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) isn't running outside of the pocket during training camp, but he has been able to plant in the pocket to make throws without any complications.

FANTASY TIP: Newton should be off and running again when the regular season rolls around, and while running the ball increases the chances he will be injured, his fantasy value is tied directly to his ability to make plays with his legs. Newton has QB1 upside, but given the injury risk, it is safer to draft him as a QB2.
