The Chicago Sun-Times reports that offensive coordinator John Shoop says Anthony Thomas will be his starter at running back, but that Adrian Peterson is going to have an opportunity to carry the ball more. If Peterson performs well, he could become the starter. Thomas, who rushed for over 1,100 yards two seasons ago, was sidelined for the remaining four games of last season with a finger injury. There are some questions as to whether he is an elite running back.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the informal battle for the starting quarterback slot begins at QB school on Wednesday. Tim Couch and Kelly Holcomb will be evaluated by Butch Davis and his staff as the team tries to solidify the spot

The Detroit News reports that fourth-round draft pick Artose Pinner will eventually battle James Stewart for the starting halfback position. Pinner is currently recovering from a broken ankle

The Kansas City Star reports that Larry Johnson will not get first-team repetitions during the Chiefs' minicamp this weekend. Derrick Blaylock is slated to start with the first team as Priest Holmes recovers from a hip

The Sacramento Bee reports that former Heisman Trophy winner Rashaan Salaam's two-day workout with the 49ers was impressive enough that the team is interested in bringing him to training camp. A decision will be made on Monday by coach Terry Donuhue


the last one I wonder about......is this happening to release Hearst...we've all heard they won't,,,,while some "experts" say its likely.

this surprises me that Blunt....I mean Pinner will compete for the starting job over Stewart. Didn't they get Shawn Bryson this off-season? I would think he would get a shot too if Pinner does.

Rashaan Salaam? I haven't heard that name in a while. Has he been playing anywhere in another league or something? Why not work out Ki Jana Carter while your at it if you're going that route.

I hope A-Train can return to his rookie form. He did have a few nagging injurys on his hands last season. Hopefully those are resolved and he makes a strong comeback
