  • Dwayne Bowe 'tweaks' knee on Tuesday
    Dwayne Bowe "tweaked" his knee in Tuesday's OTA.

    Advice: Bowe went up for a pass and landed awkwardly. He was escorted off the field for further tests, but coach Mike Pettine is confident it "isn't anything serious." Bowe will likely sit out the rest of the week, though he should be fine for minicamp. The Browns' No. 1 receiver, Bowe is a value grab at his current 14.02 ADP. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Sasser has an NFL frame at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds, but is more of a slot type than outside threat. He'll fight to bring up the rear of the Rams' weak receiver corps, but should see the majority of his rookie snaps on special teams. Rotoworld.com

  • Panthers sign Cam to 5-year, $104M extension
    Panthers signed QB Cam Newton to a five-year, $103.8 million contract extension.

    Advice: The deal includes $60 million guaranteed, and $67.6 million over the first three years. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, that's a record for a three-year period. They're massive numbers, but we'll see how "guaranteed" Newton's $60 million truly is. Either way, it's a huge vote of confidence in a quarterback who hasn't always been the most consistent. Like the Panthers, however, we still believe in Newton's dual-threat upside. He's arguably the league's most-unique threat at quarterback, and has overseen back-to-back division winners. Newton has taken a ton of hits through four NFL seasons, but is still only 26. The Panthers were right to lock him up. Rotoworld.com

  • Rex Burkhead seeing snaps at receiver
    Bengals RB Rex Burkhead has been spending time at receiver in OTAs.

    Advice: A 5-foot-10, 215-pound bowling ball, Burkhead spent time in the slot in Cincinnati's Wild Card loss. "(If) you have a talented player on your team, you see if you can find a way to get him involved," OC Hue Jackson said. "(Burkhead) can do a little bit of everything. ... He's one of the better players on our team so we will see what we can do with him." Jackson sounds determined to get Burkhead more involved after he touched the ball only 16 times last season, but barring injury to those ahead of him, he's not a threat for more than 30-40 touches.

    Advice: Vereen's main role will be as a third-down back, catching passes and helping protect Eli Manning. But Rashad Jennings is 30 years old and couldn't stay healthy last year, and Andre Williams was brutally ineffective. It's very possible Vereen, who is getting plenty of inside reps at OTAs, will earn more playing time as the year moves along. That will especially be true if the Giants use as much no-huddle as they did last year. Rotoworld.com

    Adrian Peterson has returned to the Vikings and will attend Tuesday's OTAs.

    Advice: The Vikings played hardball with Peterson and predictably won as he was never going to leave $12.75M on the table. "Basically it's time for me to come in and test the waters and re-familiarize myself with our offense and the direction they're trying to go in," he told ESPN's Josina Anderson. So all the drama over Peterson feeling scorned by the organization and wanting his 2016 contract guaranteed was just hot air. The Vikings did not adjust his deal. Coming off a year of rest and in a RB-friendly Norv Turner offense, Peterson is firmly in the top-5 fantasy pick discussion. NFL Network's Albert Breer said Tuesday the Vikings' offensive staff sees Peterson as a "350-carry centerpiece." Rotoworld.com

He wants the team to guarantee a chunk -- or perhaps all ($14.75 million) -- of his 2016 salary, when Peterson will be 31 years old. After paying Peterson his entire salary to play just one game in 2014, it wouldn't be surprising if the Vikings were a bit resistant to making him this commitment.

"The reason I'm not attending OTAs has nothing to do with wanting to be traded," Peterson insisted. "It's about securing my future with the Vikings. It's business, not personal and I understand that firsthand. Go Vikings." It sounds like the sides are still haggling over something related to Peterson's contract, which is scheduled to pay him $12.75 million in base salary this season, but is not guaranteed.

  • Still no date set for Tom Brady's appeal
    No date has been set in Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension.

    Advice: The CBA states that a date for the appeal must be set within 10 days after the appeal is filed. That would be Wednesday, although both sides could agree to a delay. Meanwhile the NFLPA has asked Roger Goodell to recuse himself from hearing the appeal, but the commissioner will not because he considers hearing the case his responsibility. We may not know exactly how many games Brady will miss for another 2-3 weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • Adrian Peterson's agent hints at a holdout
    Adrian Peterson's agent hinted at a holdout in a Monday text message to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole.

    Advice: "He is very very strong," Peterson's agent said. "He's like (Darrelle) Revis." Revis, of course, has become famous for winning contractual showdowns. Peterson seems to believe the Vikings committed an unforgivable sin by siding too closely with the NFL as his child-abuse scandal unfolded last fall. To date, the Vikings have been steadfast that AD will be in Minnesota this season. Peterson won't really be turning up the heat until he skips next month's minicamp and training camp. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Adrian Peterson still wants a trade
    A source tells Yahoo that Adrian Peterson still wants to be traded.

    Advice: Despite not getting moved during the draft, Peterson isn't backing off. He's skipping this week's OTAs, reportedly intends to sit out all of the Vikings' offseason workouts and "has not yet made a decision" about holding out of June mandatory minicamp or training camp. Peterson is apparently still fuming about the way the Vikings failed to support him during last year's child-abuse scandal. Regardless, the team has all the leverage here as he's under contract for $12.75 million. It's hard to see Peterson passing on that money in order to make a statement. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: A.P. will not report for Vikings OTAs
    The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Adrian Peterson will be a no-show for the start of Vikings Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

    Advice: The Pio Press cites a "source" that is likely Peterson's agent. Peterson's concern with the Vikings has long been their perceived lack of loyalty toward him during last year's investigation for child abuse. Still, the draft came and went without a Peterson trade, which showed loyalty on the Vikings' behalf. If Peterson indeed skips OTAs, he will forfeit a $250,000 workout bonus. The Vikings hold a series of OTAs on June 2-4 and 8-11, and a mandatory minicamp on June 16-18. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Ertz to lead Eagles in receiving?
    The Philadelphia Inquirer mentions third-year TE Zach Ertz as a candidate to "end up leading the Eagles in receiving" this season.

    Advice: Beat writer Jeff McLane acknowledges this is contingent upon Ertz earning more playing time after he played only 50 percent of Philly's 2014 offensive snaps. The Eagles' wideout corps is largely unproven, and Ertz's pass-catching chops were never in doubt. At very least, Ertz needs to become a bigger part of the Eagles' red-zone offense after scoring only three TDs in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) ready for OTAs
    Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) has been cleared for OTAs.

    Advice: Jones has an inside track on the starting X-receiver job, but needs to prove he’s fully over his injuries after missing all of 2014. The Bengals are hoping a healthy Jones can provide a big-play threat opposite A.J. Green. Rotoworld.com
