1.Eric Weddle wants an extension from Char... (Rotoworld) Chargers FS Eric Weddle skipped the first day of voluntary workouts Monday. Analysis: Weddle, 30, wants a contract extension as he enters the final year of a five-year, $40 million deal and is set to earn a $7.5 million salary. "I feel highly, highly disrespected," Weddle said. "... It is what it is, but there is no reason for me to put out any more effort." The Chargers have been trying to reach out to Philip Rivers about an extension and, to this point, have ignored Weddle's requests.2 hours
2.Seahawks re-sign C Lemuel Jeanpierre (Rotoworld) Seahawks re-signed C/G Lemuel Jeanpierre. Analysis: Jeanpierre appeared in all 16 games in 2013, but didn't spend much time on the active roster last season before being signed to make three late-season starts Weeks 13-15. He'll compete for a depth interior line job this summer.2 hours
3.Chargers | Philip Rivers at offseason workouts (USA Today) San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers was present for the first day of offseason workouts Monday, April 20, as expected. It is business as usual for Rivers.2 hours
4.Mychal Kendricks skips first day of work... (Rotoworld) Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks was a no-show for the first day of voluntary offseason workouts Monday. Analysis: While these workouts are "voluntary" in nature, players are expected to attend. Kendricks has been the subject of trade rumors in recent weeks after the Eagles extended DeMeco Ryans' contract and acquired Kiko Alonso from the Bills in exchange for LeSean McCoy. Kendricks is entering the final year of his rookie deal and may be holding out in the hopes of a trade or long-term contract.3 hours
5.Pierre-Paul skipping voluntary workouts (Rotoworld) Giants franchise player RE Jason Pierre-Paul did not attend the first day of voluntary workouts Monday. Analysis: This doesn't come as a surprise, as many tagged players do this on an annual basis. JPP was in the building on Monday, but didn't work out with the team as he continues to angle for a long-term contract. Per the Star-Ledger, the team hasn't even offered JPP a multi-year pact and remains content letting him play out his one-year, $14.8 million tender. JPP is still just 26.3 hours
6.Rams re-sign RFA Rodney McLeod (Rotoworld) Rams re-signed restricted free agent FS Rodney McLeod to a one-year, $2.356 million contract. Analysis: McLeod and SS T.J. McDonald each played over 1,000 snaps for the Rams last season. McLeod is tiny at 5'11/183, but graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover safety and laid a couple big licks on receivers downfield last season. The Rams could use an upgrade on the back end, but McLeod is plenty serviceable.4 hours
7.Rams re-sign RFA Cory Harkey (Rotoworld) Rams re-signed restricted free agent FB/TE Cory Harkey to a one-year, $1.542 million contract. Analysis: Harkey will slot back in as the Rams' fullback and No. 3 tight end after Lance Kendricks re-upped on a three-year contract last month. He's not a great lead blocker but has good hands and can move out in space as a bigger man.4 hours
8.Rams re-sign RFA Austin Davis (Rotoworld) Rams re-signed restricted free agent QB Austin Davis to a one-year, $1.542 million contract. Analysis: The Rams tendered Davis at the lowest level, and it wouldn't have required any other team to part with a draft pick to sign him. It's a sign neither St. Louis nor the rest of the league think that highly of Davis. He'll compete with Case Keenum and a rookie for the Rams' backup job behind new starter Nick Foles.4 hours
9.Steelers re-sign RFA Will Johnson (Rotoworld) Steelers re-signed restricted free agent FB Will Johnson to a one-year, $1.542 million contract. Analysis: Johnson played 221 snaps as Le'Veon Bell's lead blocker last season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 11 fullback. He also has 29 catches in three years.4 hours
10.Browns re-sign RFA Bademosi (Rotoworld) Browns re-signed restricted free agent S Johnson Bademosi to a one-year, $1.542 million contract. Analysis: Bademosi played one defensive snap last season, as he's merely a special teams player where he racked up 12 combined tackles running down kicks.4 hours
11.Chargers | Eric Weddle wants new deal (USA Today) San Diego Chargers FS Eric Weddle is not present at the team's voluntary offseason workouts because he wants a new deal.4 hours
12.Derrick Johnson (RotoWire) Johnson (Achilles) indicated Monday that he has no limitations heading into offseason workouts, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports. Analysis: Johnson entered the offseason as a potential candidate for release, but he will rejoin the Chiefs for the 2015 season. The 32-year-old linebacker tore his Achilles in the first week of last season, finishing the campaign with four solo tackles. He should slot back in at inside linebacker this fall, barring another injury.4 hours
13.Browns re-sign RFA Craig Robertson (Rotoworld) Browns re-signed restricted free agent ILB Craig Robertson to a one-year, $2.356 million contract. Analysis: The Browns tendered Robertson at the second-round level, so he was clearly staying in Cleveland. Robertson split time with Chris Kirksey next to veteran Karlos Danby last season and received positive marks in pass coverage. Depending on Kirksey's development, Robertson's snaps could be cut in 2015.4 hours
14.Dolphins | Dion Jordan close to suspension (USA Today) Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan is one failed drug test away from being suspended for a 10 games to an entire season. Jordan has minimal trade value according to people outside Miami.4 hours
15.Eagles | Mychal Kendricks absent (USA Today) Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks wasn't present for the beginning of voluntary spring workouts Monday, April 20, per sources. Kendricks is under contract and his absence is considered a surprise.4 hours
16.Eagles | Chris Polk absent from workouts (USA Today) Philadelphia Eagles restricted free-agent RB Chris Polk was not present for the beginning of spring workouts Monday, April 20, per sources. Polk has yet to sign his RFA sheet.4 hours
17.Agent: Ajayi was not at medical recheck (Rotoworld) Updating a previous item, the agent for Boise State RB Jay Ajayi says his client did not attend the Combine medical recheck last weekend. Analysis: Prospects with medical concerns are annually told to attend the Combine medical recheck. Agent Eric Burkhardt says Ajayi was not told to attend, which suggests NFL teams are comfortable with the condition of his knee despite reports to the contrary. As we originally suspected, the concern over Ajayi's knee appears to have been overblown, and may have been disseminated as a "smokescreen" by clubs hoping Ajayi falls to them in t... (More)4 hours
18.Vikings will keep Peterson if no deal so... (Rotoworld) A source close to the situation told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the Vikings will likely not trade Adrian Peterson if they can't find a taker before or during the draft. Analysis: "If he's not traded next week, they're going to keep him," said the source. In other words, the Vikings want a draft pick this year for Peterson, and potentially a player. The source named Arizona, Atlanta, Dallas, Jacksonville, San Diego, and Tampa Bay as potential trade partners for Minnesota. The source added that he would be surprised if the Vikings could get a first-round pick for Peter... (More)5 hours
19.Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul not at workouts (USA Today) New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul wasn't present for the beginning of the team's voluntary offseason workout program Monday, April 20. Pierre-Paul had the franchise tag placed on him earlier this season, but he has yet to sign the the one-year deal that would pay him $14.8 million for the 2015 season. The Giants' mandatory minicamp begins in mid-June.5 hours
20.Tyler Eifert (RotoWire) Eifert (elbow) is one of a few tight ends on the Bengals' current roster, which could change following next week's NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Analysis: Eifert, who played merely eight snaps last season due to elbow and shoulder complications, is currently the unquestioned starting tight end on the Bengals' roster. However, given his trouble staying healthy, as well as little depth behind him, Cincinnati is expected to target tight ends sometime in the upcoming NFL Draft. Still, with long-time Bengal Jermaine Gresham unlikely to be re-signed, it appears Eifert will assume vastly increased responsibilities this seas... (More)5 hours
21.Ravens | Dennis Pitta in conditioning program (USA Today) Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is participating in the team's voluntary conditioning program that started Monday, April 20. Pitta's career remains in doubt after fracturing his right hip twice in the past two seasons and the Ravens don't expect to know his availability for the 2015 season until the summer.5 hours
22.Giants | Chandler Fenner signs tender (USA Today) New York Giants CB Chandler Fenner signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender Monday, April 20. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.5 hours
23.Dennard will be given chance to start (Rotoworld) The Bengals will give second-year CB Darqueze Dennard "every opportunity" to start this season. Analysis: With Terence Newman gone to Minnesota, Dennard's primary competition for the Bengals' left cornerback job will be Dre Kirkpatrick. Dennard played only 77 snaps as a rookie, but not necessarily because he disappointed the team. Newman was a stalwart starter and Kirkpatrick played well in late-season chances. Bengals DC Paul Guenther reportedly remains "really high" on Dennard, who was the 24th overall pick in last year's draft.5 hours
24.Chiefs | Alex Smith medically cleared (USA Today) Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (spleen) was medically cleared for the start of offseason practice, Monday, April 20. The Chiefs don't begin full-squad practices until May, 26.5 hours
25.Joseph Fauria (RotoWire) Fauria did not require offseason ankle surgery, the Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: Fauria landed on injured reserve in December due to an ankle injury, but apparently the issue wasn't severe enough to require surgery. Now healthy, he will hope for a bounce-back third season, although the presence of fellow tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron may still cloud Fauria's weekly outlook.5 hours
26.Alex Smith (RotoWire) Smith (spleen) has been cleared for football activities, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Smith missed the Chiefs' regular season finale due to a lacerated spleen, but after a few months off, the signal caller has been given the green light to resume playing. As a result, he was able to throw to receivers during Monday's opening voluntary offseason workout and should be fine heading into the upcoming campaign.5 hours
27.Buccaneers | Bucs management agrees on quarterbacks (USA Today) Tampa Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said he and general manager Jason Licht are "in total agreement" of their ranking of draft-eligible quarterbacks. Smith said the whole organization is in agreement.5 hours
28.Dez Bryant (RotoWire) Bryant (groin) was not present as the Cowboys began their voluntary offseason workouts Monday, NFL.com reports. Analysis: Bryant's absence from the voluntary workouts isn't surprising, since the wideout still hasn't signed his franchise tag. In fact, Bryant and his representatives are still trying to negotiate a long-term deal with the Cowboys. Regardless, he is unsigned and thus not participating in these voluntary conditioning drills.5 hours
29.Ravens hoping for answer from Pitta soon (Rotoworld) The Ravens are hoping Dennis Pitta (hip surgeries) gives them an answer on his playing future by the summer. Analysis: Owner Steve Bisciotti said earlier this month that the Ravens are "praying" Pitta returns. Pitta, 30 in June, has suffered two hip dislocations and fractures in as many years. The Ravens plan to use a middle-round draft pick at tight end. For now, Crockett Gillmore is penciled in as Baltimore's starter.5 hours
30.Redskins | Robert Griffin OK without option? (USA Today) Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he wouldn't be "bummed" if the Redskins did not pick up his 2016 option. "I just want to win. I want to win games and have fun doing it. The rest will take care of itself," Griffin said.5 hours
31.Dion Jordan a no-show on Monday (Rotoworld) Dolphins DE/OLB Dion Jordan was a no-show for the start of Miami's offseason program. Analysis: The reasons for Jordan's absence weren't immediately clear. The third overall pick in the 2013 draft, Jordan has been a bust through his first two NFL seasons, and has yet to nail down a primary position in the Dolphins' defense.5 hours
32.Steelers | Will Johnson signs tender (USA Today) Pittsburgh Steelers FB Will Johnson signed his exclusive rights free-agent tender Monday, April 20.6 hours
33.Browns | Two players sign tenders (USA Today) Cleveland Browns S Johnson Bademosi and LB Craig Robertson signed their exclusive rights free-agent tenders Monday, April 20.6 hours
34.Titans re-sign Kaelin Burnett (Rotoworld) Titans re-signed LB Kaelin Burnett to a one-year contract. Analysis: Burnett appeared in five games for the Titans last year, amassing three tackles. The 26-year-old will try to earn a roster spot on special teams.6 hours
35.Titans | Zach Mettenberger receives praise (USA Today) Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was applauded by TE Delanie Walker for recently organizing practice sessions. Walker said he's excited about Mettenberger showing leadership and initiative, adding that Mettenberger could be the franchise quarterback the Titans need.6 hours
36.Chiefs | Two players sign tenders (USA Today) Kansas City Chiefs WRs Frankie Hammond Jr. and Junior Hemingway signed their exclusive rights free-agent tenders Monday, April 20.6 hours
37.Lions | Jeremy Ross signs tender (USA Today) Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross signed his exclusive rights free-agent tender Monday, April 20.6 hours
38.Ravens | Two players sign tenders (USA Today) Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken and CB Tramain Jacobs signed their exclusive rights free-agent tenders Monday, April 20.6 hours
39.5-time Pro Bowler Adrian Wilson hangs 'e... (Rotoworld) Former Cardinals SS Adrian Wilson announced his retirement from football. Analysis: Wilson spent training camp time with the Patriots and Bears late in his career, but never played a snap for either team. He was a career Cardinal, and on Monday signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the team. One of the NFL's premier box safeties in his heyday, Wilson earned five Pro Bowl trips and one first-team All-Pro berth. He finished his career with 27 interceptions, 16 forced fumbles, and 25 1/2 sacks. Wilson's bust is unlikely to be enshrined in Canton, but he's very much deserving of a place in the Cardinals' Ring of Hon... (More)6 hours
40.Rivers shows for Chargers offseason work... (Rotoworld) Philip Rivers is in attendance for the start of the Chargers' offseason program. Analysis: Chargers GM Tom Telesco will hold a pre-draft press conference later this week, at which point he'll have an opportunity to shoot down Rivers trade rumors. (Or be non-committal.) Entering a contract year, Rivers has no plans to sign a long-term extension with the Chargers, but his future beyond 2015 is entirely up in the air.6 hours
41.Rams | Sign several free agents (USA Today) St. Louis Rams OG Brandon Washington signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, April 20. Restricted free-agents QB Austin Davis, TE Cory Harkey and S Rodney McLeod were also re-signed.6 hours
42.Browns | Tashaun Gipson not at workouts (USA Today) Cleveland Browns FS Tashaun Gipson isn't present at the team's voluntary workouts Monday, April 20. He has yet to sign his restricted free agency tag.6 hours
43.Alex Smith medically cleared (Rotoworld) Alex Smith has been medically cleared for the Chiefs' offseason program. Analysis: He missed Week 17 last year with a lacerated spleen. As a 15-game starter, Smith compiled an 18:6 TD-to-INT ratio and 65.3 completion rate, the second-best percentage of his career. The addition of Jeremy Maclin and expected improvement from Travis Kelce and Albert Wilson give Smith a ceiling of high-end QB2 production this season. Smith turns 31 years old next month.6 hours
44.Antonio Brown (RotoWire) Brown is said to be looking for a new contract with the Steelers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Analysis: Per the report, Brown, who has three more seasons left on his current six-year, $43 million deal with the team, will not attend the Steelers' voluntary conditioning program and may consider holding out of the team's mandatory minicamp in June and/or training camp. While it's too early for this situation to impact fantasy draft boards, it's nonetheless worth monitoring in the coming months, with Brown coming off a 2014 season in which he led the NFL with 129 receptions and 1,698 yards.6 hours
45.Giants | Prince Amukamara almost at full health (USA Today) New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara (biceps) said he's about 90% recovered from a torn biceps he suffered last season.6 hours
46.Jennings expected to remain Giants start... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Nick Powell expects Rashad Jennings to remain the Giants' starting tailback this season. Analysis: There have been whispers the Giants might cut Jennings after signing Shane Vereen, but Powell refers to Jennings as the "starter" and to Vereen as a "complement." Vereen is best suited for a passing-down and change-of-pace role. Jennings will lose some PPR value to Vereen, but should come at a big discount in 2015 drafts. He regularly went in the fourth and fifth rounds last year. This offseason, Jennings often lasts until rounds eight and ten in MFL10 be... (More)6 hours
47.Jaguars | Marcedes Lewis off trade block (USA Today) Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis is off the trading block after restructuring his deal over the weekend.6 hours
48.Cruz attends workouts at Duke University (Rotoworld) Victor Cruz (patellar tendon) attended Eli Manning's workouts at Duke University, but with very little participation. Analysis: It's not a surprise with Cruz recovering from one of football's most-severe injuries. Eli says the group has "taken it easy" on Cruz, who only recently began running on flat ground. "He was able to spot up with some things, kind of light jogging. I didn't want him to push anything or do anything that would have any setbacks," said Manning. "So just catching passes and hearing plays called and thinking about what he has to run.&qu... (More)6 hours
49.NFL | Adrian Wilson retires (USA Today) Updating a previous item, free-agent SS Adrian Wilson (Bears) signed a contract to officially retire with the Arizona Cardinals.6 hours
50.Titans | Kaelin Burnett re-signs (USA Today) Tennessee Titans LB Kaelin Burnett re-signed to a one-year deal Monday, April 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.6 hours
51.Giants | Jon Beason not fully cleared yet (USA Today) New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot, toe) still has rehabilitation to do before he is cleared for full participation in the offseason program, but said he still feels good.7 hours
52.Todd Gurley gets 'two thumbs up' about k... (Rotoworld) CBS Sports' Dane Brugler confirms Todd Gurley received "two thumbs up" during his medical recheck at the Combine. Analysis: NFL Network had a similar report on Saturday. Gurley's ACL tear was known to be clean last fall, and his recovery has progressed free of setbacks. There is increasing chatter of Gurley being drafted amongst the top-20 picks.7 hours
53.'Strong concern' about Jay Ajayi's right... (Rotoworld) According to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, teams have "strong concern" about Jay Ajayi's right knee following his Combine medical recheck. Analysis: Per Brugler, the primary concern is the "longevity" of Ajayi's knee stability. Running backs already have short shelf lives, so the NFL team that drafts Ajayi likely won't be counting on him for a ten-year career. It's still noteworthy, just not necessarily for the near-term future. If the reports about Ajayi's knee diminish his fantasy draft stock, be sure to capitalize.7 hours
54.Eagles | Tim Tebow has worked with Tom House (USA Today) Philadelphia Eagles QB Tim Tebow has reportedly been working with Tom House -- New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's personal coach. House said Tebow has improved since his last NFL stint. "He went from being a little inaccurate and didn't throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball."7 hours
55.Bengals | A.J. Green not worried about contract (USA Today) Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he's not in a hurry to get a new deal done, even though he's in the final year of his current contract. "I'll just focus on football, and everything else will take care of itself."7 hours
56.49ers | Carlos Hyde in shape (USA Today) San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde has reportedly dropped his weight near 220 pounds. It's the lightest he's been since his days at Ohio State University.7 hours
57.Packers | Mike Daniels not concerned about contract (USA Today) Green Bay Packers DT Mike Daniels is focused on football this offseason, not the fact that he's in the final year of his contract. "That's just a distraction," Daniels said. "I'm here to play football. I'm here to get better. I'm here to watch film, re-learn the defense, get bigger, faster, stronger."7 hours
58.Eagles | Tim Tebow officially signs (USA Today) Free-agent QB Tim Tebow (Patriots) officially signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, April 20. Financial terms were undisclosed.8 hours
59.Justin Houston no-show for voluntary wor... (Rotoworld) Franchise player Justin Houston was a no-show for the start of Chiefs' voluntary workouts. Analysis: Unsigned franchise players are almost never in attendance for the offseason program. Coach Andy Reid is confident Houston wants to remain in Kansas City even though he made noise about soliciting offers from other teams. "He knows this is a good place for him," Reid said. "We know this is a good place for him. They’ll get it all worked out." The sides have reportedly had no talks.8 hours
60.Derrick Johnson participating in workout... (Rotoworld) Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') and DE Mike DeVito (Achilles') are participating in voluntary workouts. Analysis: Both players went down in Week 1. It's possible they'll still be babied through the rest of the offseason with an eye toward being 100 percent for training camp. The Chiefs are counting on Johnson and DeVito to help restore order to their run defense.8 hours
61.G.J. Kinne working at other positions (Rotoworld) Eagles QB G.J. Kinne will spend time at receiver and returner in the offseason program. Analysis: Signed to a reserve/future contract after Week 17, Kinne has made zero regular season appearances. He's currently the Eagles' No. 5 quarterback. He's unlikely to survive first cuts.8 hours
62.Broncos | Cody Latimer ready for next step? (USA Today) Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer believes he has already improved this offseason after participating in QB Peyton Manning's Duke passing camp. "I got a lot of repetitions... I am faster than I was [last season], shiftier," Latimer said. Latimer's counterpart, WR Emmanuel Sanders, has already heaped praise on him. "He's a special player. He has strong hands, the physical tools. I think this is going to be the year he jumps onto the map."8 hours
63.Cameron Jordan expected to suit up for O... (Rotoworld) Contract-year DE Cameron Jordan is expected to participate in the Saints' offseason program. Analysis: It's a show of good faith from Jordan after he notched just 7.5 sacks last season. The sides have mutual interest in a new deal. Jordan turns 26 in July.8 hours
64.Carlos Hyde (RotoWire) General manager Trent Baalke said that Hyde (ankle) has dropped his weight to 220 pounds this offseason, Jason Butt of CBSSports.com reports. Analysis: Hyde was 235 pounds last season, and he has apparently shed 15 pounds this offseason. The second-year back is more of a power runner than a burner, so losing some weight could result in a more agile Hyde. He is expected to be the 49ers' primary back this season, with Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter also sharing the backfield duties.8 hours
65.Colts | Dwayne Allen contract talks not looming (USA Today) Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen's contract talks will not begin until after the season. He has been given permission to train with his own trainer this offseason.8 hours
66.Brian Orakpo focusing on flexibility (Rotoworld) New Titans OLB Brian Orakpo says he's focusing more on flexibility in offseason workouts as he attempts to keep his pectoral muscles healthy. Analysis: Orakpo tore his right pectoral last season, and his left in both 2011 and 2012. The injuries have helped limit him to just 11 sacks across 24 games over the past three seasons.9 hours
67.Adrian Peterson skipping voluntary worko... (Rotoworld) Adrian Peterson is skipping this week's voluntary workouts. Analysis: Peterson rarely attends the sessions in normal seasons, let alone ones where he's in a dispute with the Vikings. In other words, it barely qualifies as news. The Vikes are playing hardball with Peterson as he attempts to force his way out of Minnesota. Provided he's not traded before the draft, the first truly notable practices Peterson can skip would be June's mandatory minicamp.9 hours
68.Giants | Eli Manning ready for 2015 (USA Today) New York Giants QB Eli Manning is comfortable playing in the final year of his contract, despite not having an extension past this season. Manning said his focus is on football and that he doesn't get too focused on his contract. "The way I look at it, I have one more year and I'm going to play that year and go from there."9 hours
69.Eli Manning wants picks in 'single digit... (Rotoworld) Eli Manning wants his interceptions in the "single digits" in 2015.9 hours
70.Adrian Peterson (RotoWire) Peterson was not present for the first day of Minnesota's voluntary offseason workouts on Monday, ESPN reports. However, he likely would not have attended even if he were not having problems with Vikings management, as he has not attended similar workouts regularly in the past, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Peterson was reinstated last week by the NFL after he was suspended in November after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault for disciplining his child with a switch. While the Vikings have indicated that they would like the running back to play for the team in 2015, his agent has said... (More)9 hours
71.RGIII would welcome 2016 team option (Rotoworld) Robert Griffin III "wouldn't be bummed" if the Redskins exercised his 2016 team option. Analysis: Impact players often lament the option since it buys teams time in long-term talks, but RGIII realizes his precarious position in Washington. "They can pick up the option — or they can decide not to pick up the option," RGIII, factually, said. "It'll work out either way. I'm focused on this year." Although the option would be guaranteed for injury only, we expect the Redskins to pass, especially considering RGIII's injury history.9 hours
72.Tashaun Gipson skipping start of program (Rotoworld) Browns restricted free agent FS Tashaun Gipson is skipping the beginning of the offseason program. Analysis: Unsigned players sometimes sign waivers that allow them to attend, but Gipson has zero reason to show up for the "voluntary" sessions. Teams have until Friday to sign Gipson to an offer sheet. Still only 25 (in August), Gipson has intercepted 11 passes in 27 games over the past two seasons.9 hours
73.Chiefs | Mike DeVito will participate in workouts (USA Today) Kansas City Chiefs DE Mike Devito (Achilles') will be able to participate in offseason workouts, according to head coach Andy Reid.9 hours
74.Chiefs | Derrick Johnson ready for workouts (USA Today) Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') will be able to participate in offseason workouts, according to head coach Andy Reid.9 hours
75.Joseph Fauria didn't have surgery (Rotoworld) Lions TE Joseph Fauria did not undergo ankle surgery. Analysis: Fauria's ankle has been a major issue ever since September, when he tripped over his puppy while trying to stop it from urinating in his home. Avoiding surgery suggests the joint has healed sufficiently on its own. Fauria brings solid red-zone chops, but can't get higher than No. 3 on the depth chart with Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew in town.10 hours
76.Browns | Johnny Manziel reports for workouts (USA Today) Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel reported for the first day of voluntary workouts Monday, April 20.10 hours
77.Vikings | Adrian Peterson not attending workouts (USA Today) Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not in attendance for the start of the team's offseason workout program Monday, April 20, according to league sources. However, Peterson hasn't attended this stage of the team's offseason before. Minnesota wasn't expecting Peterson to show, according to a source. His $250,000 workout bonus is tied to his participation for organized team activities (OTAs) and the mandatory minicamp in June.10 hours
78.Saints | Cameron Jordan to attend workouts (USA Today) New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan intends to participate in offseason workouts even though he is entering the final year of his contract, according to a source.10 hours
79.Steelers | Antonio Brown not at workouts (USA Today) Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is not present for the start of offseason workouts Monday, April 20, according to a source.10 hours
80.Randy Gregory to fall out of top-ten pic... (Rotoworld) According to the National Football Post's Greg Gabriel, Nebraska DE/OLB Randy Gregory "will drop out of the top-ten (picks) for sure." Analysis: A former NFL scouting director, Gabriel presumably still has ties to personnel men in the league. He believes Gregory will ultimately be drafted in the 12-20 range, but views Gregory's landing spot as a "wild card." Gregory not only failed a drug test at the Combine, he has reportedly failed to impress during pre-draft team interviews. On the field, Gregory is a top 5-10 talent.10 hours
81.Kelvin Benjamin admits he had mental fat... (Rotoworld) Kelvin Benjamin admitted he got mentally fatigued during his rookie year. Analysis: It's not a surprise. Benjamin was one of last year's more raw wideout prospects, yet was tasked with the job of being his team's No. 1 target right away. There were some downs but a plenty of ups and the Panthers wisely stuck with him for the whole journey. When the dust settled, Benjamin overcame the fatigue to finish with 73-1,008-9 as fantasy's No. 17 WR. He should have more stamina in Year 2.10 hours
82.No limitations on Marvin Jones (Rotoworld) Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) confirmed he has no limitations as the offseason program begins.10 hours
83.Teams have until Friday on Gipson sheet (Rotoworld) Teams have until Friday to sign Browns restricted free agent FS Tashaun Gipson to an offer sheet. Analysis: It's a bit surprising Gipson hasn't attracted any attention even though the Browns only placed a second-round tender on him. A rising star at the safety position, he's a candidate to break the bank if and when he hits the open market. If no one makes Gipson an offer before Friday, the Browns will have a steal at $2.356 million in 2015. For now, he's staying away from workouts as he's technically unsigned.11 hours
84.Antonio Brown wants new deal, mulling ho... (Rotoworld) Sources tell FOX Sports Antonio Brown is seeking a new contract and is mulling a holdout. Analysis: Brown signed a six-year, $43.04 million contract in July of 2012. Since then, he's been among the most productive wideouts in the league, racking up 305 catches for 3,984 yards with 26 touchdowns. But his average annual salary of $8.39 million ranks 13th among receivers, so Brown won't attend offseason workouts and is also considering a holdout from both mandatory minicamps and training camp. Brown is absolutely invaluable to the Steelers offense, and he'll likely get a raise if he real... (More)12 hours
85.Ndamukong Suh shows up on first day (Rotoworld) Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh was present as the Dolphins opened their spring workouts. Analysis: It's only notable because Suh annually ruffled feathers in Detroit by skipping these voluntary sessions. It appears he wants to make a good first impression in Miami after they gave him a $114 million contract with $60 million guaranteed.12 hours
86.Evan Mathis a no-show at Eagles workouts (Rotoworld) Eagles LG Evan Mathis was not present as the Eagles opened their spring workouts. Analysis: A year ago, Mathis showed up for these voluntary workouts despite trade rumors. Now he's staying away with release rumors swirling. Chip Kelly's distaste for Mathis remains a bit confusing, as he's been one of the best guards in the league over the last two years. "I'm in Antarctica looking for frozen dinosaurs to extract their DNA and splice them with my chihuahuasaur," Mathis joked when reached by beat writer Jeff McLane Monday.12 hours

88.Scandrick doesn't show for voluntary wor... (Rotoworld) Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick was not present as the Cowboys opened their spring workouts. Analysis: These strength and conditioning workouts are voluntary, but Scandrick could be making a bit of a statement.

89.Quarless to battle Richard Rodgers again (Rotoworld) Andrew Quarless will compete with Richard Rodgers for the starting tight end job again this year. Analysis: It's not really a position battle worth tracking closely because the two will rotate and Green Bay's scheme doesn't rely heavily on the tight end. Last year, the duo combined for just 49 catches and 548 yards, with Quarless at 29-323-3.13 hours
90.Marcedes Lewis' pay slashed $4.15M (Rotoworld) Marcedes Lewis has accepted a $4.15 million pay cut. Analysis: Lewis has missed 13 games over the last two seasons, is entering the final year of his contract and the Jags added Julius Thomas last month. So Lewis' only choice was to accept a hefty straight pay cut that saw his salary get slashed from $6.80 million to $2.65 million. He can earn $3 million back with unlikely playing-time incentives. The cap-rich Jags add another $4.4 million in space with move and now have nearly $40 million to play with.13 hours

93.Bengals banking on Eifert this season (Rotoworld) The Bengals are banking on Tyler Eifert realizing his first-round potential this season. Analysis: Eifert appeared set to make a leap as an NFL sophomore last season, but dislocated his elbow in Week 1 and never returned. The Bengals have since let Jermaine Gresham go and are woefully thin in the tight end room, leaving Eifert with every-down potential. He's a sneaky bet for back-end TE1 production.13 hours
94.Antonio Brown wants new deal (FFToday) Steelers WR Antonio Brown seeking new deal. Won't attend offseason workouts, mulling holdout from minicamp, training camp, sources say. Analysis: Brown is under contract for three more years and scheduled to make $6 million this season, $8.25 million in 2016 and $8.7 million in 2017. The Steelers rarely negotiate new contracts with players until they reach the final year of their contract so it's unlikely Brown will get his wish. The fantasy implications are nil until Brown misses training camp.14 hours
95.Matt Barkley no lock to stick as No. 3 (Rotoworld) Matt Barkley's grip on the No. 3 quarterback job is not secure. Analysis: The Eagles wasted the No. 98 overall pick in 2013 on Barkley, who has no value whatsoever on the trade market. He's going to have to fight off G.J. Kinne and Tim Tebow for his job this offseason.14 hours

Analysis: Like many rookie tight ends, Ebron struggled to an ugly 25-248-1 line last year. A leap to MLive's projection would put him in the fantasy TE2 range, a reasonable spot for the No. 3 option in a pass game that wants to cut down on volume. Expect tons more Ebron hype stories throughout the offseason as the Lions' brass gets defensive about their No. 10 overall pick.14 hours
98.Vikings | Adrian Peterson has offseason bonuses (USA Today) Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has a $250,000 offseason bonus in his contract for participating in all mini-camps, all organized team activities and reporting to training camp on time.

Analysis: Charles, who lost stud center Rodney Hudson in free agency, channeled his inner Chris Johnson with these quotes. "It was challenging last year playing with guys — some got hurt, some got suspended. So it was hard playing. I never knew how crucial it was to my career that I needed linemen." Despite the struggles of the line, Charles still averaged 5.01 YPC and finished as fantasy's No. 7 overall running back.15 hours
