CJ to remain lead RB: When the Tennessee Titans announced the signing of Shonn Greene to help with their running game, there were immediately questions about the distribution of touches. Head coach Mike Munchak cleared that up by saying Chris Johnson “is our main back and will continue to be.” The duo will likely be used as a thunder and lightning combination — a situation that would seem to point toward Greene seeing the goal-line touches, which would give him a little more value. Still, sharing carries makes both players low-end No. 2 or high-end No. 3 RB options.
Chiefs remaking passing game: First, they hired Andy Reid. Then they traded for Alex Smith. Next they signed Anthony Fasano. The Kansas City Chiefs offense is getting a full makeover. That could continue with Reid’s supposed new plans for Dexter McCluster. The Chiefs new chief could come up with something creative for the speedy slot receiver who had sleeper potential in 2012 but never lived up to it. Add that to the potential for two tight ends to be on the field as well as Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles and you start to wonder if touches and targets are going to be spread thin next season.
Stanton to get shot at Cardinals QB job: Still in search of a quarterback, the Arizona Cardinals will give Drew Stanton an opportunity and the journeyman says he believes he can be the answer to Arizona’s problems. It would be hard for him to be much worse than what the Redbirds put together at the position last season. A quartet of quarterbacks combined to throw 11 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. Of course, it remains to be seen if a signal caller who’s had just four starts in five NFL seasons can lift Arizona’s passing game out of its doldrums. Seems like another tough year is in the offing for Larry Fitzgerald.
