NFL Notes: Broncos, Chargers, & Ravens



Mike Klis of the Denver Post mentions that he could see the Broncos signing a veteran running back at some point.

Klis admits that he thought the team would have already brought someone in ahead of training camp, but he still believes it’s a possibility.

As things stand right now, the Broncos have Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson as their top-three backs with Brennen Clay and Kapri Bibbs also competing for a roster spot.

Some of the most notable free agent running backs include: Michael Bush, Bernard Scott, Tashard Choice, Delone Carter, La’Rod Stephens-Howling, Ronnie Brown, Felix Jones, and Brian Leonard.


Tom Krasovic of the Union-Tribune San Diego mentions that veteran WR Malcom Floyd was the MVP of OTAs and minicamp.

Floyd was reportedly the most-targeted receiver during Chargers’ workouts, despite the fact that he is coming off of a very serious neck injury that could have been career-ending.

“I’m confident right now,” Floyd said after his last spring practice. “I don’t have any doubts in my mind right now.”

Floyd, 32, is under contract for another two years with reasonable salaries of  $2.75 million (2014) and $3 million (2015) coming his way.


Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun sees the Ravens keeping six receivers on their 53-man roster this year.

According to Zrebiec, the locks to make the team include: Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Jacoby Jones, Marlon Brown and Michael Campanaro.

That leaves Jeremy Butler, Deonte Thompson and LaQuan Williams likely battling it out for the final roster spot. Although there is always a chance that one of Kamar Aiken, Jace Davis, Gerrard Sheppard and Mike Willie could work their way into the discussion.

Zrebiec mentions that Thompson and Williams have both stood out in previous training camps and have the ability to contribute on special teams as well, which could go a long ways towards helping them secure a roster spot.
