      Marshall had surgery on his foot in March, but he should still be ready for training camp, Vic Lombardi of CBS Denver reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Marshall missed the final two games of the 2014 regular season with a sprain in the Lisfranc area of his right foot. He was able to return for a playoff loss to the Colts, but the injury was apparently serious enough to require surgery. IDP leaguers will want to keep an eye on the Denver linebacking corps, as Danny Trevathan (knee) is also looking to bounce back from an injury. Trevathan had a tremendous breakout season in 2013, while Marshall did the same in 2014. If both guys are healthy to work alongside Von Miller, the Broncos will have arguably the league's best collection of linebacker talent.

      Trevathan (knee) said he is 100 percent healthy, the Broncos' official website reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Trevathan suffered a knee fracture during training camp, and while he returned for Week 5, he only played three games before re-injuring his knee. He recently admitted that he probably rushed back from the injury, but he seems to be back at full health for team-organized workouts. Assuming no setbacks, the 25-year-old Trevathan should bounce back to his 2013 breakout form, making him an intriguing target in all IDP formats. He finished the 2013 season with 129 tackles (88 solo), four forced fumbles, three interceptions, two sacks, a fumble recovery and 10 passes defensed.

  • DeMeco Ryans LB - PHI
    • Thu, Apr 16, 4:36pm

      Ryans (Achilles), who agreed to a two-year contract with the Eagles in March, said he will definitely be ready for the start of training camp, CSN Philadelphia's Reuben Frank reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Given that Ryans suffered a torn Achilles in November, it would be premature to assume he'll be ready for training camp. Still, his optimism is a good early sign, and it won't be surprising if he's back at full strength by Week 1. Of course, Ryans' days as a useful IDP may be over, as the Eagles now have Mychal Kendricks and Kiko Alonso on the roster. Ryans won't necessarily be a starter, and even if he is, he may come off the field for passing downs.

  • Paul Posluszny LB - JAX
    • Thu, Apr 16, 12:58pm

      Posluszny signed a one-year extension with the Jaguars on Thursday, the Jacksonville Sun Times reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The extension, which will keep the productive linebacker in Jacksonville through the 2017 season, will result in a slight pay cut, though Posluszny will receive more guaranteed money. The 30-year-old signed a six-year, $45 million contract with the Jaguars in 2011.

  • Adrian Peterson RB - MIN
    • Thu, Apr 16, 11:29am

      The NFL issued a statement Thursday relaying that effective Friday, Peterson will be reinstated as an active NFL player.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Upon his reinstatement, Peterson -- who was suspended without pay this past November for the remainder of the 2014 NFL season for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy -- will be permitted to participate in all scheduled activities with the Vikings. Peterson is under contract with the team this coming season for a base salary in the neighborhood of $13 million, but at this stage it remains to be seen if he will remain with the Minnesota organization. While the Vikings have indicated that they would like the running back to play for the team in 2015, Peterson's agent has said his client doesn't want to play for the Vikings. Minnesota has voluntary workouts that begin Monday and OTA's on May 28, but Peterson doesn't need to show up until a June 18 mandatory minicamp. Peterson's decision to return to the Vikings could drag into June if he's not traded before the NFL Draft.

  • Kai Forbath K - WAS
    • Thu, Apr 16, 6:34am

      Forbath re-signed with the Redskins on Thursday.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Forbath had been a restricted free agent, but will stay with the organization for his fourth NFL season. His field goals made total has increased with each year in the league, resulting in a career-best 103 points in 2014. The 27-year-old will be the favorite to win the job once again in 2015, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Washington bring in a little competition during camp.

  • Sammy Watkins WR - BUF
    • Wed, Apr 15, 9:06pm

      Coach Rex Ryan does not expect Watkins, who underwent a hip procedure following the 2014 season, to do much football-related work until August, but the coach expects him to be fully ready for training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Ryan, "My understanding is Sammy is doing really well. We're not going to see him out there until training camp. But he should be full go when we get to training camp."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: We wouldn't knock Watkins down at all due to the injury. He also should be primed for a strong career after flashing signs of brilliance as a rookie. That said, the Bills still don't know who their quarterback is going to be and there's a lot of talented mouths to feed with Watkins, LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson, Charles Clay, Percy Harvin, and Robert Woods all in the mix. It's also worth mentioning that Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman say they're committed to being a run-heavy team in 2015.

      Lockette has signed his contract tender to remain with the Seahawks, 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: His one-year deal with the team is reportedly worth $660,000, with Lockette now set to reprise his depth wideout/special teams role with the Seahawks.

  • George Johnson DL - DET
    • Wed, Apr 15, 8:02am

      The Lions have resolved their dispute over the offer sheet Johnson signed with the Buccaneers, making the defensive end an official member of Tampa Bay, ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: After the Lions protested the structure of the three-year, $9 million offer sheet the Bucs provided Johnson, the two teams agreed to exchange unspecified late-round draft picks to settle the grievance. The 27-year-old Johnson served as a rotational end for the Lions last season, but with the move to a Bucs organization starved for pass rushing, he could seriously contend for a starting job.

  • Josh Gordy DB - IND
    • Tue, Apr 14, 4:50pm

      Gordy signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With neither of the other two safeties currently on the Giants' roster (Cooper Taylor and Nat Berhe) possessing NFL experience, Gordy will at least give the team a veteran body in the defensive backfield. Gordy spent the last three seasons with the Colts in a backup capacity, racking up 51 tackles over 43 games. Expect the Giants to address the safety spot in the upcoming NFL Draft, which could prevent Gordy from having much of a chance at claiming a starting gig.
