|Rob Housler TE CLE|
Coach Mike Pettine referred to TE Rob Housler as "the ideal 'F.'"
|The "F" position refers to the move tight end spot, a player that is often detached from the line. That's where Housler, a 6'5/248 specimen with 4.55 speed and a 37-inch vertical, wins. Don't be surprised if he breaks his previous career-high of 45 catches, set in 2012.|

|We actually believe the eccentric Lynch, who turned 29 in April. But when the Seahawks "put 12 in front of you for a year, you start to think, maybe I could do this again," he said. The highlight of Lynch's Conan appearance was when he discussed his trademarked end-zone dive move. "I done got in a lot of trouble for grabbing my ding-ding."|
|Michael Bennett again talks holdout||06-30-2015|
|Michael Bennett DT SEA|
Seahawks LE Michael Bennett said the Seahawks "want me to play five positions but pay me for one."
|Bennett continues to tell anyone who will listen that he's contemplating a holdout. That's nice, but the Seahawks just signed him to a four-year, $32 million contract 15 months ago. NFL deals don't get redone one year into a pact and Bennett likely knows this.|
|Jaws goes to bat for Geno Smith||06-30-2015|
|Geno Smith QB NYJ|
ESPN's Ron Jaworski said he "Like(s) the future of the Jets with Geno Smith at quarterback."
|Geno's career has often been the butt of jokes through two seasons, but he's played in a QB-unfriendly system with guys like Jeremy Kerley and Jeff Cumberland as primary targets. We saw a flicker of hope over last season's final four games as he completed 65.1 percent of his throws with a 6:2 TD-to-INT ration en route to a 105.3 passer rating. Now Smith has excellent weapons (Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Jace Amaro, Devin Smith) to fit the Chan Gailey's spread scheme that's similar to the one he excelled in at West Virginia. We're not ruling out a big step forward.|
