  • Jonathan Williams 'steady' at Bills OTAs
    Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo said fifth-round RB Jonathan Williams "looked very steady" during OTAs.

    Advice: Rookies often have a tough time adjusting to the speed of the NFL but Capaccio said Williams never looked "out of place" at OTAs. It might be hard for Williams to carve a role for himself with LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams ahead of him on the depth chart. Head coach Rex Ryan also praised the performances of Mike Gillislee and James Wilder during OTAs. Running back is going to be a position to watch at Bills camp this summer.

  • Jackson arrested for allegedly threatening wife
    WESH Orlando reports free agent Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested for allegedly threatening his wife with a gun.

    Advice: According to the police report, Jackson was intoxicated when he pulled a loaded gun on his wife and threatened to kill her. Jackson was visiting family in Kissimmee, Florida when the alleged assault took place. Jackson's children were reportedly asleep during the incident. Obviously no team is going to go near Jackson until his legal affairs are in order. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:17 pm

  • Smith, Williams and McNeil competing at WR
    Seahawks.com reporter John Boyle expects Kevin Smith, Kasen Williams and Douglas McNeil to compete for the final wide receiver spot at training camp.

    Advice: Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson (assuming he's healthy) will all be on the roster, leaving Smith, Williams and McNeil to battle for one or two spots. Smith should enter camp as the favorite. He outsnapped Williams 215 to 39 last season while earning five targets compared to just one for Williams. McNeil never saw the field in 2015 after joining Seattle's practice squad late in the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:46 pm

  • Wendell Williams impressing at Texans OTAs
    Texans WRs coach Sean Ryan was pleased with undrafted rookie Wendell Williams' performance at OTAs.

    Advice: "I was happy," said Ryan. "There was a learning curve for him, but he's another guy who's really dedicated to learning and making some strides. The speed, you can't teach that." Williams was a track star in college and timed an official 4.32 forty leading up to the draft. The 25-year-old is hoping to make the team as a gadget player in the mold of Tavon Austin or Percy Harvin. He scored 15 touchdowns in his senior year at University of the Cumberlands, logging eight receiving touchdowns, three rushing scores and four return touchdowns (three kickoffs, one punt return).

  • Stafford and Caldwell impressed by T.J. Jones
    Matthew Stafford believes WR T.J. Jones could be in for a breakout season.

    Advice: After playing limited snaps as a rookie, Jones should play a much bigger role in year two as the Lions look to replace top wideout Calvin Johnson. Jones came on strong late last season, logging eight targets against the Rams in Week 14 and later scoring his first touchdown against the 49ers in Week 16. Head coach Jim Caldwell praised Jones for his versatility. "He can catch screens for you. He can take off and go when he gets a seam," said Caldwell. "We really expect him to come forward and be a little bit more of a prominent threat." Jones isn't on the fantasy radar yet but he's trending in the right direction. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:48 am

  • Green-Beckham: 'I had a good offseason'
    Dorial Green-Beckham said he "had a good offseason."

    Advice: Not many people would characterize an offseason in which they lost their first-team role to a rookie as a success, but Green-Beckham is staying positive. "I had a hamstring problem that set me back early," DGB said, "but other than that I have been taking care of myself, learning the playbook, and have done my best to play fast." Green-Beckham will likely open the season in the starting lineup, but it is concerning he seems unfazed by the snaps he is losing to rookie Tajae Sharpe. He is an extremely volatile WR4 for fantasy.

  • Mortiz Bohringer headed for practice squad?
    ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling believes sixth-round WR Moritz Bohringer will start his career on the practice squad.

    Advice: Bohringer has admitted he is struggling with the "mental" part of the NFL game after playing four years in Germany, and he reportedly struggled with drops during OTAs and minicamp. The problem is the Vikings would risk losing Bohringer and his tremendous physical upside if they try to stash him on the practice squad. He is unlikely to make a 2016 impact, but it would not be surprising if he stuck around as a healthy scratch all season. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

Suisham was released with a failed physical tag by the Steelers on Friday. He finishes his career with an 84.1-percent conversion rate on 251 career field goal attempts. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:36 am

    The results of the investigation into sexual assault allegations against Nelson Agholor have been sent to Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams.

    Advice: Williams' office will decide whether or not to bring criminal charges. Both investigators and the D.A.'s office have remained tight-lipped about the case, but Agholor's attorney has strongly denied his client did anything wrong. Williams usually announces his decisions in high-profile cases via a press conference, but it is still unclear when the decision will be handed down. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:17 am

  • Hyde: Kelly's system showcases my abilities
    Carlos Hyde said new coach Chip Kelly's system "will help showcase all my abilities."

    Advice: "Not just as a ball carrier, but also as a threat in the passing game," Hyde continued. "I think it's going to be an exciting year." Hyde has never been a consistent threat in the passing game in the NFL and never had more than 16 catches in a season while at Ohio State. Still, the buzz all offseason has been he will be more involved as a receiver under Kelly. We will believe that when we see it, but Hyde still has RB1 upside if he can stay healthy -- something he has struggled to do to this point in his career. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:34 am

  • Phins 'pretty happy' with Tannehill's spring
    MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Dolphins are "pretty happy" with Ryan Tannehill's performance in the offseason program.

    Advice: New coach Adam Gase said he tried to push Tannehill to the "breaking point" this offseason, but the fifth-year quarterback apparently responded well. Gase has coaxed above-career-average seasons out of both Peyton Manning and Jay Cutler in his last two stops, and Tannehill is working with the best pass-catching weapons of his career. He is a solid upside pick late in drafts. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:13 am

  • Talks between Cousins, Skins 'going nowhere'
    MMQB's Albert Breer reports contract negotiations between the Redskins and franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins are "going nowhere."

    Advice: Breer reports both sides expect Cousins to play out 2016 under the terms of the franchise tag, which would pay him $19.95 million. Likely thinking he will be in an even better negotiating position this time next year, Cousins has little reason to accept a cut-rate deal before the July 15 deadline, and Washington likely wants to see him do it again before they shell out franchise-quarterback money. No matter how grim it looks in June, these deals usually get done at the deadline, but it would not be surprising if Cousins played out the season under the tag. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:05 am

  • Rudolph: I'm the best tight end in the league
    Kyle Rudolph believes he's the best tight end in the NFL.

    Advice: "Route running and catching balls, to many, is all that matters," Rudolph reasoned. "But it’s also (about) being one of the best blockers, one of the best pass protectors." Rudolph went on to say he believes fantasy football hurts his reputation. "The world revolves around fantasy football ... But I know that when I come to work every Monday, and I (watch) the film, I may have only caught two balls, but if I did my job in the run game and pass protection, (Vikings coach Mike Zimmer) is going to be happy." Rudolph is correct that no one will ever mistake his passing game numbers for elite. He's incorrect that his game is amongst the league's most well rounded. Pro Football Focus graded him as the league's No. 35 tight end in 2016. We'd say that sounds about right. Happy offseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:15 pm

    Advice: "(I'm) just taking my time in this process," Bush said. "I want to do it the right way." The reality is, Bush would already be signed if anyone had significant interest. The good news is, he should be at or near 100 percent health after tearing his meniscus last Week 8. Bush will undoubtedly get a shot to crack someone's 53-man roster as a COP back.

  • Decker wants Fitz issue resolved before camp
    Eric Decker said he wants the Jets to resolve the Ryan Fitzpatrick issue before training camp.

    Advice: It's the resounding sentiment around Jets camp. "I hope something gets worked out, one way or the other, so we cannot have distractions going into training camp," Decker said. "I think for any team to have success, you have to have some kind of direction. And, with training camp, that’s where you get the timing, that’s where you kind of build the team and build your identity. And if it’s still in question marks and you don’t know what’s going on, you’re going to create some kind of issues that we don’t need to have."

  • Gase pushing Tannehill to his breaking point
    Dolphins coach Adam Gase says he tried to push Ryan Tannehill to his "breaking point" at OTAs.

    Advice: Gase threw the kitchen sink at Tannehill, surprising him with unexpected blitzes, distracting him during plays by throwing bags at him and putting him in unusual situations like 4th and 10. "I put a lot on his plate. It’s almost to the point where it’s probably too much this fast," said Gase. "He’s been doing a good job of responding." Gase is giving Tannehill more freedom to call plays at the line of scrimmage, which was Tannehill's biggest conflict with former OC Bill Lazor. Having transitioned from Mike Sherman to Lazor and now Gase, Tannehill is in his third offensive system in four years. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:43 pm

  • Accuracy still a concern for Ryan Tannehill
    The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports Ryan Tannehill struggled with accuracy during the offseason program.

    Advice: Jackson reports Tannehill made a "handful of impressive" throws, but he also suffered from bouts of "errant ball placement." New coach Adam Gase appeared to notice the inconsistency as well. "There have been a few throws where I would like to see the ball placement be a little better," Gase said. "There have been a few times, too, where they haven’t been on the same page ... [and as a result] it looks like a poor throw. That’s the development of the offense. You’re not going to be perfect from the get go." With a proven offensive mind like Gase in town, the makings of a solid line, and quality weapons around him, Tannehill will have few excuses if he does not take a step forward this season.

    Vikings sixth-round WR Moritz Boehringer admitted he's struggling with the "mental" part of the NFL.

    Advice: Boehringer was a great story when he was picked by the Vikings in April after playing four years in his native Germany, but it's time for football and the rookie has struggled with drops and learning the playbook this spring. "It's a mental thing," Boehringer said. "I'm not 100 percent comfortable with the playbook, but I think it will come in time." He's unlikely to make a 2016 impact. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:03 am

  • Mularkey: We're trying to motivate DGB
    Titans coach Mike Mularkey admits he's trying to motivate Dorial Green-Beckham by not considering him a starter heading into training camp.

    Advice: "I am hoping they take it personal," Mularkey said of Green-Beckham and Justin Hunter. "And that they’re going to come back in here in better shape, and better prepared and healthy, ready to go out of the first practice." It's a major red flag that the Titans are still having to play these sorts of head games with DGB as a sophomore NFLer. It's plainly inexcusable for him to be behind fifth-rounder Tajae Sharpe on the depth chart, motivational tactic or not. Green-Beckham has immense physical gifts, but needs the light to come on.

  • Jets looking at other free-agent quarterbacks
    Coach Todd Bowles said the Jets have discussed adding a veteran quarterback if free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't re-sign.

    Advice: It's confirmation the Jets aren't sold on Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg as backups in the event Geno Smith gets the starting nod. The Jets haven't made any progress with Fitzpatrick since details of their three-year offer were leaked in early June. As Hackenberg is a second-round pick, Petty could be out of a roster spot if the Jets add a veteran. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:34 pm

    According to ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky, fifth-round WR Tajae Sharpe has passed Dorial Green-Beckham on the depth chart "for now."

    Advice: Sharpe has been getting a ton of work with the first team and continues to do so at minicamp, working alongside Rishard Matthews and Kendall Wright. WRs coach Bob Bratkowski said DGB's year away from football in college is playing a big part in his slowed development. "That kind of a gap, it has an effect on them," he said. "It takes time." DGB is far-and-away the Titans' most talented pass catcher, but he's going to need to step up his game this summer. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:58 am

    Advice: "It would be his prerogative," Bowles said. "Business is business. We'd like to have him here, but if he doesn't feel like he needs to be, that's on him. I've got a team to coach." The Jets have made it abundantly clear they're more than willing to wait Fitz out, and potentially let him walk altogether. A reunion remains the most likely endgame, but isn't a certainty.

  • Jaws: Ryan Fitzpatrick should've had 30 INTs
    Based on film study, ESPN's Ron Jaworski said free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick should have thrown 30 interceptions last year.

    Advice: Jaws was unimpressed by Fitzpatrick's 2015 tape. "There were 15 [passes] that doinked off a linebacker's hand or safety's hand that should've been intercepted," said Jaworski. "He was a little bit lucky." Jaws criticized Fitzpatrick for his lack of consistency and attributed most of his success to Brandon Marshall's "phenomenal" play. Fitzpatrick certainly overachieved in 2015. It's very likely one of the reasons the Jets feel comfortable playing hardball in contract talks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:23 am
