Jamaal Charles    RB  Broncos

 

 

Charles (knee - meniscus) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery, Troy E. Renck of Denver7 reports. "I am doing everything. I have been cutting the last couple of days with the guys during the offseason workouts. I feel like the way I am cutting that I am back to the normal me, man. It feels good to be moving around again," Charles said Tuesday. "I have been knowing this the whole offseason [that the knee was fine]. Nobody can take nothing away from me except God when my time is up. I am still 30 years old. I still have a lot of special stuff to do."

Jeremy Sprinkle    TE  Redskins

 

 

CSN MidAtlantic's JP Finlay doesn't expect rookie TE Jeremy Sprinkle to make the Week 1 roster. Sprinkle is behind Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, and Niles Paul on the depth chart. He'll likely need Washington to carry four tight ends to make the team. One of the top in-line blockers in this year's draft, Sprinkle figures to draw interest on waivers if cut.

Karlos Williams    RB  Free Agent

 

 

Free agent RB Karlos Williams has been suspended indefinitely. Williams had just one game remaining on his 2016 ban. His latest suspension will keep him sidelined for at least a year. Williams was already in danger of falling out of the league after getting waived from the Steelers in March. This effectively ends his career.

David Irving    DL  Cowboys

 

 

NFL suspended Cowboys DT David Irving four games for violating the league's PEDs policy. It was announced last month that Irving was facing the ban, and it's now official. Irving played 530 snaps for the Cowboys last season, receiving really strong marks for his pass rush and above-average grades from Pro Football Focus for his run defense. A mammoth man at 6'7/285, Irving single-handedly dominated a handful of games last season, winning DPOW honors in Week 6 and then wrecking the Bucs in Week 15. It's a big blow to an already-undermanned defensive line.

Clinton Portis    RB  Redskins

 

 

In a story for Sports Illustrated, ex-Redskins RB Clinton Portis admitted he was ready to murder one of his former financial advisers who Portis claims is responsible for losing millions of his dollars. Portis made over $43 million in his nine-year career, but has lost nearly all of it. Some of it was his own fault, but Portis also fell victim to a Ponzi scheme and ultimately filed for bankruptcy in 2015. He recalls several dark nights where he would sit in his car outside an office building with a gun hoping to see the man who he trusted with his money walk out, so that Portis could kill him. "It wasn’t no beat up," Portis says. "It was kill." A friend ultimately talked Portis out of the situation, and Portis now lives in Virginia and does some TV work for the Skins. The story is a fascinating read and perhaps a cautionary tale for current players. It can be accessed at the link below.

Clark Hunt    C  Chiefs

 

 

The Kansas City Star's Terez Paylor says there's a "growing belief" the Chiefs will promote from within the organization for their new GM. Co-directors of player personnel Mike Borgonzi and Brett Veach would seem to be the most likely candidates for a promotion. Veach was a candidate for the Bills' GM opening before it went to Brandon Beane. Kansas City is interviewing Seahawks executive Scott Fitterer for the gig on Wednesday and will be thorough in the search.
