As week one of the regular season is approaching at a fast pace, multiple rumors have been spreading across the nation. In case you’ve missed it, here are a few:
Tim Jennings to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
This rumor could be true. The Bucs struggled against the pass in 2014 and Tim Jennings could be what the team needs. Jennings was cut by the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and visited with the team on Tuesday.
It’s Tebow vs. Barkley for the final QB spot in Philadelphia?
This rumor came out recently, but also another realistic expectation. The Eagles do not plan on heading into 2015 with four different QB’s, and it’s anyone’s guess to who will win that roster spot. Tim Tebow has looked unimpressive in the red zone this preseason, but ultimately could be utilized as a special teams threat.
Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch battling for touches?
Fred Jackson recently met with the Seahawks for a physical, and is expected to sign with the team sometime this week. This rumor is completely false. Marshawn Lynch is still the lead guy, and Fred Jackson will only be used on third downs most likely. It is reported that Lynch even campaigned for the Seahawks to recruit Jackson to the team.
