Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) has not received interest from teams this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Rice has not played since he was suspended last year. Rice did not put up great numbers during his last full season in the league, which likely is another factor as to why he has not received interest. Rice could be an option if a team loses a running back during the preseason, but he likely will not have much fantasy value.

Free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) has been cleared to resume playing after suffering a fractured fibula last year. Bradshaw had eight touchdowns and 725 total yards in 10 games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw shouldn't be drafted in standard fantasy football leagues, even if he latches on with a club for running back depth.

Free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts) has been suspended one game for violation of the league's substance abuse policy. If he signs with a team he must sit out for the first week.

Free-agent QB Michael Vick remains without a job, but he tried selling himself to general managers Tuesday, June 16. "(I'm) a proven winner. I think that I've done a lot throughout the course of my career," Vick began. "I've proved that I can win games and play with some consistency and be a leader. I think those are the qualities that you want in a quarterback," Vick said. When asked if has thought about this being the end of his career, Vick was in denial, "Going through times like this you kind of think about it," he said. "I know I have been playing a long time. It's been 13 years. I know I still have a lot of football left in me. You never want to think of it in that regard," said Vick.
Fantasy Tip: Vick is likely a little too optimistic on what he has to offer NFL teams, but in the right situation and the best-case scenario, Vick could put together one good week on FantasyScore. Vick will need to get a job and prove he's worthy before any owners pay attention to him.
