A day after word broke that free agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw will face a one-game suspension to open the 2015 season, agent Drew Rosenhaus tweets that his client is “back to full health and totally cleared” after fracturing his ankle last season. Bradshaw’s injury history and his suspension will diminish his market, but he has continued to be effective when he’s played, averaging 4.6 yards per rush on 352 carries from 2012 to 2014.
Here are a few more odds and ends from around the NFL:
- It’s no surprise that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers show up in Jason Fitzgerald’s piece at OverTheCap.com identifying the three most team-friendly veteran quarterback contracts in the NFL. However, Fitzgerald’s third choice, a certain Bengals signal-caller, is somewhat unexpected.
- Getting a headstart on 2016’s draft, Mel Kiper of ESPN.com (Insider-only link) identifies his top 10 quarterback prospects for next year. Kiper names Michigan State’s Connor Cook as the top senior QB and California’s Jared Goff as the No. 1 underclassman.
- Admitting that the comments he made after leaving the Packers for Minnesota were “very unprofessional,” veteran wideout Greg Jennings suggests to Ben Goessling of ESPN.com that that experience helped him better deal with being released by the Vikings this offseason.
- Former National Sports Agency rep Kevin Omell is headed to Relativity Sports to work with his longtime friend Ben Dogra, according to a SportsBusiness Journal report.
