May 9 2015 - Jeff Heuerman (Broncos), TE Jeff Heuerman, selected in the third round of the draft by the Broncos, went down during Saturday (May 9) afternoon's rookie minicamp practice while running downfield during a special teams drill.
The Broncos said Heuerman, who was carted off the field, is likely to miss the 2015 season.
Heuerman was expected to compete for playing time this year after the Broncos lost tight end Julius Thomas to the Jaguars in free agency.
"I feel terrible for Jeff and this is an unfortunate situation," first-year Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. "Jeff was going to be a big part of our team this year, and he's still going to be a big part of our team and organization in the future.
"He'll get well and be with us as part of this team throughout his rehabilitation."
May 7 2015 - La'el Collins (Cowboys), T/G La'el Collins, a first-round prospect who went undrafted, signed with the Dallas Cowboys Thursday (May 7).
The three-year, $1.7 million contract is fully guaranteed, which is rare, if not unprecedented, for undrafted players. But Collins' case is unique: He went undrafted due to concerns about his involvement in a murder the week before the draft.
Collins, who was considered a possible first-round pick, was never a suspect in the case, according to Baton Rouge police. But they wanted to talk with him.
With teams leery of drafting him, Collins tried to pull out of the draft last week, with the hope of entering the supplemental draft in the summer. The NFL denied that petition; and, after Collins went undrafted in the first round Thursday, he threatened not to sign with any team and re-enter the draft in 2016 if he was not drafted in rounds two or three on Friday.
In the end, no team drafted him at all -- meaning he could not re-enter the draft next year and immediately became an undrafted free agent eligible to sign with the team of his choice.
After Collins met with police Monday, teams started contacting him. He had an impromptu dinner meeting with Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan in Baton Rouge on Monday and had received interest from the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers as well.
He was supposed to visit the Dolphins in Davie, Fla., on Friday. But he never got out of Dallas, where he reportedly met with owner Jerry Jones at his home Wednesday night.
On Monday, Collins was interviewed by Baton Rouge police for more than an hour about the shooting death of a 29-year-old pregnant woman -- his former girlfriend, Brittney Mills -- on April 24.
Collins told them he was in New Orleans to attend a Pelicans NBA playoff game the night Mills was murdered, the website TMZ reported Wednesday, quoting anonymous sources.
Mills' son, Brenton, was delivered alive but died one week later. A paternity test indicated Collins wa
May 6 2015 - Kevin White (Bears), WR Kevin White, selected by the Bears in the first round of the draft seventh overall), agreed to terms on a four-year contract Wednesday (May 6).
White appeared in 24 games with 22 starts in two seasons (2013-14) at West Virginia, collecting 144 receptions for 1,954 yards (13.6 ypc) and 15 touchdowns. As a senior, he ranked fifth in the FBS in receptions (109) and sixth in receiving yards (1,447) to go along with 10 touchdowns, ranking second in single-season school history in receiving yardage and third in receptions. He was one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff award (given to the nation's best receiver), a Maxwell Award Semifinalist (College Player of the Year), earned first team All-America honors by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), Sporting News, and CBSSports and was named second team All-America by the Associated Press, USA Today, Walter Camp and SI.com. White was also a unanimous All-Big 12 Conference First Team and the Mountaineers Offensive MVP for the 2014 season.
Apr 29 2015 - Philip Rivers (Chargers), QB Philip Rivers and the Chargers have reportedly continued to talk about a contract extension beyond the 2015 season.
FOX Sports1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reported the Chargers met with Rivers' agent late last week with the intent of extending his current deal.
Rivers would become an unrestricted free agent after the 2015 season without an extension. His future with the Chargers has been in question after reports surfaced that he declined a contract extension because he is wary of the team's possible move to Los Angeles.
In addition, there has been speculation that the Chargers might try to move up in the draft to select Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Tennessee Titans draft No. 2 overall, and some have speculated that the Chargers might try to trade Rivers to the Titans in a package that nets San Diego the No. 2 pick. The Chargers select 17th overall in the draft, which will take place in Chicago beginning Thursday night.
Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said last week "it's our plan and intent" for Rivers to remain the team's quarterback.
"It's the same thing I've said for the last four months: Philip's our quarterback and it's our plan and intent that he's our quarterback well into the future," Telesco said.
Rivers, 33, has been the Chargers' quarterback ever since replacing Drew Brees in 2006, setting numerous club records and approaching many of Dan Fouts' marks while climbing the NFL charts. The five-time Pro Bowl quarterback has thrown for 36,655 yards, 252 touchdowns and 122 interceptions. His 95.7 rating ranks sixth in NFL history.
Apr 29 2015 - Dion Jordan (Dolphins), DE Dion Jordan will sit out the 2015 season resulting from a NFL suspension for a positive drug test.
Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, will not appeal the ban, which reportedly came from a diluted test sample.
"We were disappointed to learn about Dion Jordan's most recent suspension for violating the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse," the Dolphins said in a statement. "A player's health and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. We have made every effort to support Dion, both on and off the field and we will continue to do so to the extent allowable under NFL guidelines."
Jordan also was suspended for the first four games without pay in 2014 after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and later given an additional four-game suspension for violating the policy.
ESPN reported that the suspension puts an end to possible trade discussions with the Philadelphia Eagles in February regarding Jordan. The 25 year old played at Oregon when Eagles coach Chip Kelly was with the Ducks.
Jordan has not shown up for the Dolphins' voluntary workout program this month.
In two NFL seasons, Jordan has fallen short of expectations with just three sacks and 46 tackles in 26 regular-season games. The Dolphins traded up in the 2013 draft to land Jordan.
