LaMichael James RB SF 20 Hrs
ESPN's Adam Teicher suggests the Chiefs could have interest in LaMichael James.
James is currently being shopped by the 49ers and may eventually be released. Kansas City is unlikely to have much interest in James as a running back, but he could be an option to help replace Dexter McCluster's role on special teams. The 61st overall pick in 2012, James has appeared in just 14 games the last two seasons.
Mason Foster LB TB 20 Hrs
Bucs coach Lovie Smith anticipates MLB Mason Foster blitzing more in his version of the Tampa-2 this season.
"The position will blitz," Smith said. "Brian Urlacher will tell you that. Man coverage is also a part of what we ask. All those things, we feel like Mason can do." Bucs DC Leslie Frazier recently expressed concern over whether Foster has the coverage skills to remain at middle linebacker, but he showed some signs of improvement with three interceptions last year, including two that were returned for touchdowns. Foster should also see his snaps increase with the Bucs expected to use less dime packages.
Chykie Brown DB BAL 21 Hrs
ESPN's Jamison Hensley considers Chykie Brown the slight favorite for the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback job.
The Ravens lost Corey Graham to free agency, so Brown and Asa Jackson are the only two corners behind Ladarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Brown was active for all 16 games last season, but played just 39 defensive snaps. Baltimore remains highly likely to draft a cornerback in the first four rounds.
Eric Winston ARI 21 Hrs
Coach John Harbaugh confirmed the Ravens have not had any contract talks with free agent RT Eric Winston.
The Ravens currently have just Ricky Wagner as an in-house option to replace Michael Oher, but 30-year-old Winston wouldn't be much of an upgrade at this point. ESPN's Jamison Hensley expects Baltimore to target a right tackle early in the draft.
Andre Roberts WR WAS 22 Hrs
The Redskins are considering using Andre Roberts on kick returns.
It's not an ideal role for Roberts, who averaged 22.4 yards on kick returns in his first two seasons with the Cardinals. Roberts is also the Redskins' No. 3 receiver, so they may not want to risk exposing him to injury. Chris Thompson, Richard Crawford, and Niles Paul are also candidates to be used in the return game.
Prince Amukamara DB NYG 23 Hrs
The Giants haven't decided whether to exercise CB Prince Amukamara's fifth-year option for 2015.
Amukamara would cost roughly $7.93 million over the next two seasons. While he hasn't established himself as a must-keep player, there's little downside in the Giants picking up the option and keeping open discussions about a long-term deal. Amukamara had 85 tackles and two forced fumbles last year in his first full season as a starter, but has only three career interceptions.
Nick Williams DL PIT 23 Hrs
Steelers DE Nick Williams (knee) is questionable for OTAs.
A 2013 seventh-round pick, Williams spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve. The Steelers haven't made much of an effort to re-sign Brett Keisel or upgrade at right end, so Williams has a chance to compete for snaps opposite Cameron Heyward when healthy. Williams has been off crutches since mid-January and is eight months removed from knee surgery.
Kenny Stills WR NO 1 Day
ESPN's Mike Triplett expects the Saints to come away from the draft with at least one receiver.
The Saints are "very comfortable" with second-year Kenny Stills as their No. 2 wideout, but with Marques Colston on the downside of his career and Stills very unproven, it makes sense for the New Orleans to invest a middle-round pick on a wide receiver. Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews is a Marques Colston clone and could be available in the third round.
Terrelle Pryor QB OAK 1 Day
Fox Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Raiders will cut Terrelle Pryor Monday if they are unable to trade him this weekend.
Pryor only has one-year and $705,000 dollars left on his rookie contract, so there is a chance someone gives up a late-round pick for him. It is more likely he ends up being cut on Monday. Pryor only completed 57.4 of his passes and threw seven touchdowns to 11 interceptions in nine starts last season. If cut, Pryor has a good shot to latch on with another team as a project/camp quarterback.
Rick Wagner BAL 1 Day
ESPN Ravens blogger Jamison Hensley puts a 45% on the Ravens drafting a right tackle early in the draft, perhaps even Norte Dame G/T Zack Martin in the first round.
Hensley said earlier in the offseason second-year T Ricky Wagner would be given a shot to win the job, but he is "buying" the Ravens' interest in Martin. Both would likely be upgrades over former RT Michael Oher, who signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Titans this offseason.
