Report: One way or another, QB Terrelle Pryor won't be a Raider by end of Monday

The Raiders have already said publicly that quarterback Terrelle Pryor won't be on their team this season. So, why haven't they just cut the cord already? Well, despite erasing all possible leverage through their words, the Raiders are still trying to trade Pryor for something. If they are unsuccessful in doing so over the next 48 hours, the Raiders will finally release him. That's what Alex Marvez of FOX Sports 1 reported Saturday. Monday is when the Raiders open their offseason program.


Broncos RB Montee Ball gets vote of confidence from QB Peyton Manning

Montee Ball's rookie season got off to a rough start with a nasty case of fumblitis that limited his playing time for the first half of the year. But as he gained a better handle on the ball and life in the NFL, Ball became a bigger part of the Broncos' offense. This season, his role will expand much more as Denver is depending on him to be their lead back following the departure of Knowshon Moreno. No one knows how the 23-year-old will perform under such high demands, but the Broncos' future Hall of Fame quarterback has faith in him.
Via Jeff Legwold of, Peyton Manning said Wednesday that he believes "Montee Ball is ready" to be a starting running back.


UPDATE: Two months after Super Bowl, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas still bothered by shoulder injury

Update: Never mind? Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Thomas is with his fellow receivers and Manning today, and that Thomas doesn't even have a separated shoulder. Rather, Thomas simply aggravated a bruised shoulder during the big game. Nothing to see here, I guess.


Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas separated his left shoulder during the Broncos' blowout loss to the Seahawks in the most recent Super Bowl. The injury wasn't expected to be a big deal, and perhaps it still won't be as long as Thomas is healthy by summertime. But more than two months after suffering the injury, Thomas is still recovering. He wasn't present as quarterback Peyton Manning conducted some on-field pass-and-catch sessions with his receivers, including Emmanuel Sanders, Wes Welker, and Julius Thomas, this week. The team still doesn't expect Thomas to miss any part of training camp, but he could be limited during upcoming OTAs.
