Johnny Jolly, DE/DT, Green Bay Packers

Due to allegations of involvement with a drug trade, Green Bay defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is suspended indefinitely by Roger Goodell.

Green Bay won't feel the hit too much, as they still have rookie Mike Neal and veteran Ryan Pickett to save from a collapse on the line.

Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings

Despite swirling rumors about Peterson's frustration over his current contract, the star running back denied all reports, claiming that his contract and status with the Vikings is a non-issue.

Peterson said he is happy with his current deal, and that everyone should put the contract rumors "to rest".

Terrell Owens, WR, Free Agency

After Owens expressed an interest in joining the New England Patriots in 2010, news has now been broken that Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins want nothing to do with him.

Owens has remained content and willing to sit out of training camps until an NFL team reaches out to him.

Jason Ferguson, NT, Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins nose tackle Jason Ferguson has officially called it quits and is retiring, according to reports.

Ferguson was coming off of a quadriceps injury and was likely facing a four-game suspension if he decided to play in 2010.

Clinton Portis, RB, Washington Redskins

Portis has officially been named the starter at running back heading into the 2010 NFL season. Larry Johnson and Willie Parker will battle it out for backup duties.

Portis dropped from 230 pounds to 217, and took Mike Shanahan's comments about offseason conditioning and work ethic to heart. Portis may not be the fantasy beast he once was, but he looks to still hold capable No. 2 RB abilities.
