  1. Todd Jennings is optimistic his surgery and rehab have gone well since an ACL tear ended his season early. Speaking on Broncos fan radio, the Denver Broncos quarterback said everything has gone as planned. "It's good. I'm good," Jennings said. "I'm better than I thought I would be. With so much going I was scared I wouldn't get all my mobility back but I'm feeling solid at this point." The Broncos are hoping the rehab has progressed significantly to the point that Jennings is completely ready for offseason work, and that he comes out the other side fully healthy. Jennings gains an additional 5% boost to his post-injury health level.
  2. Carolina Panthers running back and FSU graduate Mike Latta is hosting a football camp on March 10th at FSU. The camp is free of charge and will feature two sessions for young athletes ages 7 to 17. "I bring a lot of NFL guys out," Latta told the local ABC station. "We keep the camp free because when I was young I couldn't afford to go to camp, so now we give every kid the opportunity to just learn the basic fundamentals of football. But then also know that football is a game that teaches you teamwork and hard work." This is the third year in a row Latta has held the camp. Last year, 612 kids took part. Latta said many arrive day-of as walk-ups. The spring camp is run by Latta's foundation, Dreams Never Die, a nonprofit that seeks to provide inner-city and low-income youth resources they need to excel at athletic and academics.
  3. The grounds crew at Lambeau Field is preparing for a nightmare for this Sunday's divisional game between the Lions and Packers. The area has already received upwards of 3 feet of snow this week and is expecting several more inches just prior to kickoff. A variety of player attributes will be more significantly impacted by the weather.
  4. The Sacking Cancer Foundation is a non-profit based in Denver that works to raise money for research toward a cure, new and innovative treatments, and to help support families as they battle childhood cancer. It's not limited to any specific type of cancer and Davis is adamant he will expand the non-profit when his playing career is over. "My little brother died of cancer at only four years old and I've taken that to be a sign from God that I've been given a mission," Davis told NFL Network. "Ya'll blessed for allowing me this exposure," he added.
  5. Fred Romanowski, defensive tackle for the Washington Redskins, recently donated $1.5 million to the University of Michigan that funded a $450,000 engineering scholarship. Romanowski also started a namesake foundation that creates programs and strategic partnerships around education, health and wellness and global outreach in 2019. "Education gave me an opportunity, it opened a door. I want to open doors for others just like me. Hard life to good life has always been my motto."
  6. Several San Francisco 49ers players were benched for their protection, according to the 49ers organization, in their final game of the season. The mood inside the 49ers organization appears to have shifted to one of doubt and mistrust, with the team's coaching staff openly discussing changes to starters and giving backups starting time in the week 17 finale. Several insiders have come out in the past few days that Todd Lester and Jarius Shaw-Dodd are "extremely angry" with how the team handled the situation for their final game. Please use this player line going forward: (Already progressed line) QB Todd Lester 6-0 194 7 California [Scrambling] [+1] 93
  7. Several NFL stars have pledged their offseason muscle to a major Habitat for Humanity project in Fort Myers, Florida. Broncos running back J.B. Blacknall, Eagles defensive tackle Turk Davis, Patriots inside linebacker Mark Craig, and Titans strong safety Tywan Tafoya will be helping to build a 50-unit housing complex just outside of Fort Myers it was reported by the local paper on Tuesday. "We're building these houses so that people can create their legacy," Blacknall said. "Memories are made in the home. Thanksgivings, Christmases are held in the home. That's something special and that's what is lost when a family doesn't have a stable home," added Craig. Added Davis, "Having a decent place to live is the basis of a cohesive family unit. I think that's something that often gets overlooked." "We are barely scratching the surface for where the need is. I had a friend of mine ask me to help with this project and I figured I'd reach out to a couple of my playing buddies and maybe we can help get this thing rolling in May," concluded Tafoya.
  8. "In my 8th year, I want to celebrate the awesome opportunity I've had to play football by giving back to the communities that have given me that gift," Brown said in a statement. "Educational opportunity and equity are the best gateway to a better tomorrow for everyone in America." Cowboys lineman Jace Brown announced he will donate his first six game checks to fund scholarships in his hometown for the Pledge 10 for Tomorrow campaign. "My wife and I have been passionate about education being a gateway for upward mobility and equality," Brown told NFL Network. "I think we can all agree that equity in education can help affect change that we all want to see in this country." Brown has convinced his teammates Justin Campbell and Sid Henson to contribute their first three game checks next year to the same foundation benefiting their home towns. "We do a lot of good together on the field. Now I want us to do a lot of good together off the field."
  9. Woods went under the knife after suffering a torn meniscus in week four. The injury cost woods the rest of the season, though it looks like he'll be 100% for Buffalo's offseason program when it arrives. Assuming his knee injury is behind him, Woods should resume protecting Matt Jones' blindside in 2023.
  10. Andrew Fazande has requested a trade from the Chicago Bears according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. According to La Canfora, Fazande did not demand a trade, but told the Bears he would prefer to be moved. His report states that "Fazande has issues with Darman and Akeel Morris," and that he "feels like the coach is not properly aligned with the schemes he would like to be running." Until Fazande is traded all his attributes will act at a reduced overall of 75 instead of his true rating to represent his reduced effort (this includes training, games, etc.)
  11. Hakeem Black, who tore his Achilles in Training Camp, needed a second surgery to fix problems that arose from the rehab of the initial surgery several months ago. Rome said Black should be ready for Week 1 but he will be questionable for the entirety of the pre-season.
  12. It's no secret that Anthony Miller's prowess on the field is matched by his desire to intiate change in the lives of people across the world. Speaking to NFL Network on Wednesday afternoon, the Indianapolis Colts defensive end reiterated his plan to donate all of the endorsement money he receives this upcoming season to charities supporting inner-city programs. In addition, he's committing half of the proceeds he receives from jersey sales to helping support inner-city garden projects. "It means a lot to me to be in this position," said Miller, speaking to NFL Network's Kevin Richards. "To be conscious to the social economics to different people in different communities. ... To have an opportunity for my family and my wife are dedicated to the same thing. My whole family is passionate about giving back and helping people in need." In addition to his ongoing support of programs helping minorities and women in the United States, Miller recently teamed up with wide receiver Rex Walsh in his efforts to send aid to famine-stricken Somalia. Later this offseason, Miller said he and Colts teammate Mosi Bartos will be traveling to Haiti to assist charitable efforts within the Caribbean country. Miller has been one of the NFL's most vocal advocates in raising awareness to the problems affecting minorities and their communities. Last year, he called upon NFL players to do more and criticized those who remained silent on social issues. He told NFL.com that he has seen a renewed effort by players to be more involved. "I think it's growing among players," Miller said. "People are paying so much attention now that they are getting an opportunity to really speak. And I think (players) have to use our platform for the right reason." "At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how many touchdowns you're going to get because your record is going to be broken. It's about how many seeds you plant in your community to change kids' minds, change their trajectory in life and give them the opportunity to do more."

  14. The Indianapolis Colts have agreed on a new contract with quarterback Aaron Shea, worth a reported $125 million to keep him with the team until he turns 32. $110 million of the new contract are guaranteed over all five years, and secures his future in the sport until 2027. "Thank you to the Colts organization for standing by me time and time again and giving me the opportunity to lead this football team," Shea wrote on his Instagram account following Monday's deal. "Looking forward to making some more memorable moments soon, and for years to come.
  15. "I feel like I'm back to normal. I just knew that I needed a little more time than I was able to get throughout the season, obviously there was no chance of me coming back. I’m feeling great right now. Getting back to building my body up the right way." Payton should help boost one of the worst special teams units in 2023. He gained an additional 10% fitness over normal injury recover for his excellent recovery.
