Eno Benjamin Taking Advantage Of Repetitions
Arizona Cardinals running back Eno Benjamin has been taking advantage of his repetitions this offseason and has married his quickness, pass protection and receiving abilities into a player who could end up backing up James Conner in 2022. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury has raved about Benjamin this offseason. With Chase Edmonds leaving in free agency, Benjamin will be the front-runner to be Conner's backup when training camp starts at the end of July. The 23-year-old former seventh-rounder in ...

Nate Landman Could Make The Roster
Atlanta Falcons undrafted rookie linebacker Nate Landman was active in 7-on-7 drills in the only heavy action during organized team activities and seemed to have a knack for finding the ball. Landman is still probably fighting an uphill battle to make the final roster as an inside linebacker out of training camp, but he might have jump-started himself into being in the conversation if he builds on his spring performance during training camp this summer. The 23-year-old from Colorado finished his... [More...]
Trinity Benson Has Productive Offseason
Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell praised wide receiver Trinity Benson during minicamp as one of the players who is "having a hell of a spring." Benson has learned the team's playbook and elevated his confidence by adding speed to his skill set. The 25-year-old will still have to fight for a roster spot in training camp this summer alongside names like Kalif Raymond, Tom Kennedy and rookies Corey Sutton, Kalil Pimpleton and Josh Johnson. The Lions also signed DJ Chark Jr. in free ... [More...]
Eagles Impressed With Quez Watkins
Philadelphia Eagles third-year wide receiver Quez Watkins made some splash plays this spring, including a 40-plus-yard touchdown catch during organized team activities from quarterback Jalen Hurts. The Eagles coaching staff has talked up Watkins every chance they get and believe he has the tools to be a highly productive receiver. However, finding consistent targets for him may be the only problem, with A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert all commanding looks in the offense. ... [More...]
Daniel Bellinger Could Make An Impact In Rookie Season
New York Giants rookie fourth-round tight end Daniel Bellinger had plenty of opportunities with the first-team offense this spring and caught the ball well. Given the way he caught the ball and the way he was moving at organized team activities and minicamp, it's likely that he was underutilized at San Diego State. The Giants have an opening at the position, and Bellinger has a chance to make an impact in his first NFL season after making a strong impression this offseason. Ricky Seals-Jones ... [More...]
T.J. Vasher Stands Out This Offseason
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver T.J. Vasher, who was signed as an undrafted free agent last year, wasn't able to practice with the team due to a knee injury. However, he's put himself into the receiver conversation this offseason and got a lot of work in at organized team activities and minicamp. "He's made some really big-time flash plays, splash plays," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's had some really, particularly in the red zone, which you can see his ability down there. Big plays in ... [More...]

Baker Mayfield, Browns Both Ready To Move On
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield isn't completely ruling out the possibility of a reconciliation with the team in the event that the NFL suspends Deshaun Watson for the entire 2022 season, but the disgruntled QB also said the Browns would have to be the ones to start the process. "I think for that to happen there would have to be some reaching out," Mayfield said. "But we're ready to move on, I think -- on both sides."
