• Decker (hip, shoulder) on the field at OTAs
    Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is participating in OTAs.

    Advice: He is sporting a non-contact jersey, but even getting on the field is a great sign considering some speculated Decker would not be ready for training camp following offseason surgeries to his hip and shoulder. As Decker himself said earlier this month, he should be fully ready for training camp. Rotoworld.com 20 minutes ago

  • Redskins could tag Kirk Cousins a third time?
    Team president Bruce Allen said the Redskins would be willing to place the franchise tag on Kirk Cousins next offseason.

    Advice: "Yes," Allen said when asked directly about tagging Cousins for the third year in a row. "In the collective bargaining agreement, we really have one year and an option that we can do at the end of next season if we don’t get a contract." Tagging a player three years in a row is intentionally cost prohibitive, and Cousins would be due $34 million if Washington tags him again next spring. The Redskins have other options, however, including the transition tag ($28 million) and non-exclusive franchise tag which would both offer the right of first refusal if Cousins signs an offer sheet somewhere else. Of course, all of this madness could be avoided if Washington matches Cousins' contract demands by the July 15 deadline, but that is unlikely at this point. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:03 am

    ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Odell Beckham is expected to report for OTAs on Thursday.

    Advice: Beckham was working out with his trainer in California when OTAs began on Monday. These sessions are voluntary, and Beckham's contract does not include workout bonuses which would give him the incentive to show up. The reason he decided to skip the first two practices is still unknown, but we are sure he will get peppered with questions about it when he returns. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:37 am

  • Report: Rams will feature TEs in passing game
    NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports the Rams plan to run a "tight-end-centric passing game."

    Advice: It is not a surprising report considering Washington targeted a tight end on 26 percent (seventh-highest) of their attempts last season under Rams coach Sean McVay. Along with last year's fourth-rounder Tyler Higbee, second-round pick Gerald Everett gives the Rams two potentially dynamic weapons at tight end. Without much talent at receiver, it makes sense for the Rams to feature them if they are ready to step up. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:44 am

  • Goff having 'easier time' with new offense
    Jared Goff said he is having an "easier time" learning the new offense under coach Sean McVay.

    Advice: "I don’t know whether that’s scheme or the way it’s taught or what not," Goff said, "but I’ve enjoyed spending time with the coaches and picking it up pretty quickly." New OC Matt LaFleur shared a similar sentiment earlier this month, saying Goff has "really grasped the offense surprisingly fast." Goff was bad enough last year to raise serious questions about his ability to develop into a quality starter, but McVay and company will give him his best chance. As Goff suggested, that was not the case last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:26 am

In total, there are 10 sessions before another break ahead of next month's mandatory minicamp. Beckham is under contract for a little more than $1.8 million in 2017 and is due for a mega-extension either this summer or next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:26 pm

    Texans second-year WR Will Fuller is hoping to add weight this season.

    Advice: "I think the most I've ever weighed is probably about 190, and I felt pretty good," Fuller said. "That was around the Combine. If I can get to that weight and keep my speed, that would be perfect." Fuller is listed at 180 on the Texans' roster. Fuller got off to a piping-hot start as a rookie, but faded fast after the first month and had severe drop issues. Fuller said, overall, he feels much more comfortable heading into Year 2.

The 37th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Smith will enter 2018 having appeared in just 14-of-48 possible games. If it makes Jets fans feel any better, Smith was taken just ahead of fellow receiver disappointments Dorial Green-Beckham (No. 40) and Devin Funchess (No. 41). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:59 pm

  • Steelers to use more four-receiver packages?
    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests the Steelers could play more four-receiver offense this season.

    Advice: Assuming conditionally-reinstated Martavis Bryant is all systems go, the Steelers will have Bryant, Antonio Brown, Eli Rogers, and second-rounder JuJu Smith-Schuster available at wideout. Losing Ladarius Green removed a weapon from Pittsburgh's offense, and more four-wide packages could be one way to compensate. Last year's Steelers went four wide on just 1 percent of their plays. For comparison, the Jets led the NFL in four-wide sets at 33 percent. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:47 pm

  • Coaches think DeVante Parker can 'dominate'
    "Multiple sources" told the Miami Herald that DeVante Parker "has been so impressive this offseason" that Dolphins coaches are now hopeful he can "finally develop" into a "dominant threat."

    Advice: Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen has said the same publicly. Per the Herald's Armando Salguero, during the offseason program Parker has "come to understand that staying healthy is key to his success," which means "eating right," no longer skipping meals, and taking the team nutritionist's advice. Parker is also showing up on time after tardiness was a recurring early-career theme. In the past, Parker didn't always get enough sleep or work hard in practice. He is apparently doing those things now. If Parker has indeed matured, he has the god-given ability to take a third-year fantasy leap. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 am

    Advice: The 49ers openly attempted to trade McDonald during the draft, but cutting him for nothing is another story, one which would cost the 49ers cap space this year or leave dead money in 2018 depending on how the move is designated. It is still unclear why outgoing-GM Trent Baalke was allowed to give McDonald a five-year, $35-million extension last December, and it looks like the 49ers will have to eat some money to reverse that poor decision.

    Advice: Kupp has made a habit of showing well on the practice field -- he buoyed his draft stock by dominating during Senior Bowl practices. While athletically limited, Kupp did break the all-division college record for career receiving yards (6,464), and the Rams do not have much talent at receiver. He has a path to early targets.

    Redskins RB Chris Thompson expects to see more work this season after proving he can stay healthy the last two years.

    Advice: One of the best third-down backs in the league according to coach Jay Gruden, Thompson rushed 68 times and saw 62 targets last season, turning the touches into 705 total yards and five scores. Thompson has alway been effective when given the opportunity, but his slight frame (195 pounds) and long injury history make it unlikely Washington ever views him as anything more than a complementary back.

    Advice: Doctson missed most of the offseason program and training camp last year with a mysterious Achilles' injury before landing on injured reserve after two games. Even after signing Terrelle Pryor, Washington needs much more from Doctson this season to help replace DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon.

    Advice: With Martavis Bryant penciled in alongside Antonio Brown on the outside, 6-foot-2 Smith-Schuster's clearest path to playing time could be in the slot. It would be a role similar to Anquan Boldin's in Detroit. Eli Rogers was the Steelers' slot man for most of 2016, and the Steelers supposedly remain high on him. If Bryant keeps his head on straight and everyone stays healthy, Smith-Schuster could find snaps somewhat hard to come by.
