Quarterback Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Tom Brady, QB, NEP6/26/2015 11:43:00 AM
Description: A decision on the appeal of the Tom Brady fpir-game suspension isn't expected to come down until near the end of July.
Insight: As long as you don't have your draft too early, you should have an answer before it's time to make your pick.
Russell Wilson, QB, SEA6/26/2015 11:20:00 AM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wants to be the highest-paid player in the NFL, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report.
Insight: And I'd like to date a supermodel. Actually, Wilson's two consecutive Super Bowl appearances make it a semi-reasonable argument. As long as he doesn't miss any playing time fantasy owners don't care what he gets paid, though in the fantasy world he's not the best player in the league.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP6/24/2015 5:27:00 PM
Description: It sounds like Tom Brady could remain suspended for four games to begin the season.
Insight: According to Pro Football Talk, Brady remained in denial during his appeal on Tuesday. Roger Goodell and the NFL office wanted to see a different side of Brady, which according to Pro Football talk, they didn't see. Adam Schefter of ESPN, however, had a different take Tuesday night reporting that Brady was his "greatest ally". It will be interesting to see where this story turns next.
Peyton Manning, QB, DEN6/24/2015 5:24:00 PM
Description: Sports Radio 610 has a source that says the Texasn and Broncos opened "preliminary" talks regarding a Peyton Manning trade this offseason.
Insight: The story goes that the "preliminary" discussions took place before Manning agreed to his $4 million pay cut to stay in Denver. Manning has a no-trade clause, so he would have had to agree to the trade. This seems like a very strange story, but it's probably getting blown out of proportion. Again, these talks were very "preliminary".
Tom Brady, QB, NEP6/23/2015 11:27:00 AM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is having his appeal of the four-game suspension heard this morning.
Insight: At least we should know the final suspension total before training camps begin. No matter what, Jimmy Garoppolo is the likely starter Week 1 against the Steelers. The question is whether the league will cut anything off the announced four-game suspension. My guess is no.
Tyrod Taylor, QB, BUF6/22/2015 9:29:00 AM
Description: Don't count out quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the battle for the starting role in Buffalo, according to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe.
Insight: Taylor never got a chance in Baltimore behind Joe Flacco, but signed with Buffalo instead of taking another offer to play behind Peyton Manning in Denver. He's gotten plenty of work in the OTAs and could beat out mediocre options Matt Cassell and E.J. Manuel.
Cam Newton, QB, CAR6/20/2015 12:12:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is said to have looked pretty good in OTAs this spring.
Insight: Carolina's starting quarterback is still just 26-years-old so improvement is expected. He's also going to be throwing to a better receiving group than he's ever had. Second-year wideout Kelvin Benjamin, talented rookie Devin Funchess and Greg Olsen should be his three top options.
Terrelle Pryor, QB, SEA6/19/2015 9:17:00 PM
Description: Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor is willing to play wide receiver in the NFL according to Pro Football Talk.
Insight: Pryor spent some time with the Bengals this offseason, but Cincinnati released him this week. Back in May, Pryor said he only wanted to play quarterback, however, he seems to have changed his mind since he apparently has no other options to stay in the NFL. At 26 years old, it will be interesting to see if Pryor can make the transition.
Matt Ryan, QB, ATL6/19/2015 1:04:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan along with his receivers have indicated the team would like to be more balanced in 2015, according to an AJC report.
Insight: It's a nice theory, but that doesn't always work out in practice when your two best players are your quarterback and wide receiver. Ryan threw for 4,694 yards and 28 touchdowns against 14 interceptions.
