The Philadelphia Daily News said there is a "good chance" Brent Celek leads the Eagles' tight ends in snaps this year.
Just as he has every year since 2009. Chip Kelly reportedly loves Celek, and he offers the Eagles more in the running game than Zach Ertz. Recovering from groin surgery, Ertz may not even suit up early in the season, and when he finally gets back on the field it will again be in a backup role to Celek. Ertz is nothing more than a TE2 flier at this point.
According to Pewter Report, free agent CB Tim Jennings received a contract offer from the Buccaneers.
Jennings left his meeting with the Bucs on Tuesday without signing a deal, but Tampa Bay reportedly made an offer. Jennings has a history with both coach Lovie Smith and DC Leslie Frazier, making a deal more likely than not. Jennings has yet to take any other visits.
The NFL is not expected to seek an injunction which would keep Tom Brady off the field during the appeal of Thursday's decision.
The NFL will almost certainly appeal the decision to vacate Brady's four-game ban, but they do not have to seek an injunction which would keep Brady off the field. Brady will be under center in the season opener, and barring injury should be the starter all season. He is now a top-five fantasy quarterback.
Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Cowboys DE Greg Hardy is considering an appeal of his four-game suspension in the wake of Tom Brady's appeal win.
Hardy saw his 10-game suspension reduced to four games in July, but he still feels hard done after being forced to sit out all but one game last year. Brady's win in federal court could give Hardy the confidence to seek out a similar result. If Hardy can earn a stay, the Cowboys' defensive line will be a position of strength entering the season.
U.S. District Judge Richard Berman nullified Tom Brady's four-game suspension.
The NFL will likely appeal the decision, but Brady will be under center for the Patriots' opener on September 10. Most reports suggested Brady's team had the stronger case, and the NFL's decision not to pursue a settlement when Brady was reportedly open to one earlier this week is yet another puzzling decision from the NFL office. Brady should now be considered a top-five fantasy option and a solid DFS play in his tasty Week 1 matchup against the Steelers.
Cardinals ILB Sean Weatherspoon is expected to play in the fourth preseason game.
It will be Weatherspoon's debut with the Cardinals and first game action since Week 15 of 2013. A standout when healthy, Arizona needs Weatherspoon to be a rock in their otherwise underwhelming linebacking corps. Weatherspoon has played all 16 games just once in his five-year career.
Redskins rookie WR Jamison Crowder will not face league discipline for a June domestic violence accusation.
Crowder was accused of domestic violence through his Instagram account on June 4. He was never formally accused of any crime, and the NFL's investigation has apparently found nothing to suggest Crowder violated the personal conduct policy. Crowder will open the season as a special teams contributor.
The Eagles want to get RB Darren Sproles more involved in the offense.
"We'd like to get him the ball steadily and consistently, and he certainly is a unique, outstanding player," Eagles OC Pat Shurmur said before the preseason. "We just need to make sure we get him the ball, and we have a plan to do that." That plan could involve Sproles lining up more as a receiver, something the Eagles worked on in camp. Sproles averaged just six offensive touches a game over the second half of 2014. Even if he sees a slight bump in usage, he is unlikely to be a consistent fantasy option in standard formats.
