    • Greg Olsen hasn't had extension talks yet
      Greg Olsen said he hasn't had any substantial contract extension talks with the Panthers yet.

      Advice: Olsen's deal is not a priority as he's signed through the 2015 season. It would also be silly for the Panthers to "buy high" right now as the tight end is coming off a career-best season at age 29. We wouldn't be surprised if the Panthers make Olsen play out 2015 as a contract-year player, ensuring he's highly motivated as the No. 2 pass-game weapon behind Kelvin Benjamin. Rotoworld.com

    • Vernon Davis says he'll participate
      Vernon Davis promises he will participate in the 49ers' offseason program.

      Advice: Davis skipped almost all of the 49ers' offseason last year before turning in a career-worst season. Davis turns 31 years old later this week and it's fair to wonder if he's reached his decline phase. He failed to produce in the passing game last season and even seemed to hit a wall as a run blocker. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Graham now thinks he'll avoid surgery
      Following Sunday's Pro Bowl, Jimmy Graham said he still believes he will avoid offseason shoulder surgery.

      Advice: Graham looked healthy during the Pro Bowl, catching three passes for 30 yards with two touchdowns. "It made a big difference, just having some rest," he said. We still don't know the exact specifics of Graham's injury, but we do know it really limited his catch radius and role during a disappointing 85-889-10 season. He'll get a lot more rest before next season, setting up a potential bounce-back campaign in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Cameron likely to walk in free agency
      ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi expects the Browns to let Jordan Cameron walk in free agency.

      Advice: Grossi previously predicted Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray would be Cleveland's starting tight ends to open the 2015 season. Cameron is a top-five talent at the tight end position, but the Browns appear poised to move on following an injury-riddled 2014 campaign. Cameron's free agent market will be fascinating to track. The 26-year-old is likely to come at a nice discount. Rotoworld.com

    • Dolphins express interest in re-signing Clay
      The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "privately indicated" they'd like to re-sign impending free agent TE Charles Clay.

      Advice: This comes as no real surprise as Clay and DT Jared Odrick are Miami's top two free agents. Clay is coming off a down year where he fought through a season-long knee injury. It should help lower his price. Clay is one of the more versatile finesse tight ends in the league with the ability to line up in the backfield. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Graham still considering surgery
      Jimmy Graham said he's still considering offseason shoulder surgery.

      Advice: Graham didn't miss any games due to his shoulder issue, but it noticeably limited his production in the second half. He reportedly plans to use the Pro Bowl to decide whether he'll need surgery. Graham had an 85/889/10 line in 2014. Rotoworld.com

    • Seahawks CB: Rob Gronkowski isn't 'that good'
      Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane doesn't believe Rob Gronkowski is "that good."

      Advice: Oh. "He’s OK," Lane conceded. "But he does have a big body, and from what I’ve seen on tape, he don’t like your hands being put on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won’t catch that many balls as he should." We doubt Gronk had ever heard of Lane before today, but he might have something special for him in Super Bowl XLIX. Few teams search for bulletin board material as voraciously as the Pats. Lane has offered up some of the dumbest in recent memory. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Graham expected to avoid surgery
      Jimmy Graham anticipates avoiding offseason shoulder surgery.

      Advice: Graham battled a shoulder injury for the entire second half of the 2014 season, severely affecting his production. He wouldn't reveal the injury's specifics in a Thursday interview with reporters. Still only 28 years old, we suspect Graham has a few seasons left in him of top-three tight end production. He'd be a value pick in the third round of 2015 fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

    • Bucs talking up Austin Seferian-Jenkins
      New Bucs OC Dirk Koetter mentioned Austin Seferian-Jenkins when discussing the talent he now has on offense.

      Advice: It would have been easy heap praise on Mike Evans/Vincent Jackson and gloss over a tight end who posted a meager 21-221-2 rookie line. But Koetter, who coached Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta for two seasons, is well aware of the skill set Seferian-Jenkins possesses. This is a 6'5/262 mountain of a man with 4.56 speed, giving the next Bucs' quarterback (likely Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota) a massive catch radius. ASJ is a candidate to take a big step forward as a NFL sophomore. Rotoworld.com

    • Pitta's status to be updated in 2 weeks
      Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects a decision on TE Dennis Pitta's (hip surgery) future "in a couple weeks."

      Advice: Pitta is recovering from his second hip dislocation and fracture in the last two years. He needs medical clearance to continue his career, but the Ravens are cautiously optimistic Pitta will be ready for 2015. Rotoworld.com
