Here is a look at some of the top NFL rumors for Thursday, May 28:

  • Last year, Emmanuel Sanders racked up 1,404 yards, nearly doubling his previous career-best mark of 740 yards. With Rick Dennison replacing Adam Gase as offensive coordinator, Sanders thinks his 2015 production may come in somewhere between those two numbers. "[O]bviously it’s not going to be one of those offenses where you catch it and you’re going to have two receivers catching over 100 passes,” said Sanders, per DenverBroncos.com. “Hopefully, my goal is really to try to get a 1,000 yards to just help this team win ball games.”

  • La’el Collins played only on the left side of the line at LSU, but the rookie is working out at right tackle this offseason, while Doug Free recovers from ankle surgery. "We think he has the physical ability to play a couple of different spots,” coach Jason Garrett said, per the Star-Telegram. "He was a tackle for most of his career in college but did play guard. We see him as a guy who can maybe do both of those things as he goes. The big thing for him is to try to get him acclimated as quickly as we can. So right now he’s going to play right tackle for us. He and Darrion Weems are competing at that spot in Doug Free’s absence, and we’ll just see how that unfolds."

  • It's been seven months since Victor Cruz tore his patella tendon. His availability for training camp and Week 1 remain uncertain, but he appears to be heading in the right direction. “I’m about 80 percent there. I think it’s just a matter of continuing to build the strength for the last leg of it,” Cruz told the New York Post on Wednesday. “I’ve been running some routes for about two weeks now, and there’s been no pain, no swelling or anything like that, which are all good signs.”
