Quarterback Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Josh Freeman, QB, NYG4/16/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: The Giants have agreed to terms with Josh Freeman on a one-year contract, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.
Insight: Freeman will compete with Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib for the backup job. Freeman had an abysmal .429 completion percentage, 761 yards, two touchdowns and four picks in four starts last year (0-4). He was released by the Buccaneers and only made one start with the Vikings, a Monday Night disaster against the G-Men in which he went 20-of-53 for 190 yards.
Matt Flynn, QB, GBP4/15/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: The Packers have re-signed backup quarterback Matt Flynn. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport,
Insight: Flynn spent time with three different teams last season before settling in as Green Bay's starter when Seneca Wallace went out with a groin injury. Now that Aaron Rodgers is fully recovered from a broken collarbone, Flynn doesn't figure to see much playing time in 2014.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, SFX4/10/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are being investigated by Miami police about a "suspicious indicent" involving a woman at a hotel earlier this month.
Insight: Miami Police Dept. public information officer Rene Pimentel initially told USA Today Sports that the investigation was for sexual assault but he amended his statement and says that the Special Victims Unit is investigating a "suspicious indicent." "There are no charges, definitely not. There is an investigation," Pimentel said.
Eli Manning, QB, NYG4/10/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: New York QB Eli Manning had arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Thursday. He expects to be able to run again in approximately six weeks.
Insight: Manning hurt his ankle in Week 17 and has felt discomfort since. We're still waiting for Manning to find his form from 2011 (4,933 yards, 29 TDs).
Jake Locker, QB, TEN4/7/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: Tennessee QB Jake Locker (Lisfranc surgery) says he is ahead of schedule and expects to be ready for May OTAs, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Locker, Charlie Whitehurst and Tyler Wilson are the current QBs on the roster, but don't be surprised if the new regime brings in a quarterback in the draft. Locker has yet to show he's a fantasy-worthy QB.
