NFL wants to talk to James Harrison about his name being mentioned in a PED report.

Harrison has been appearing all over social media for his vigorous work outs but his name was mentioned in the AL-Jazeera American report. Harrison was always a joy to watch and it would be a real shame if he was/is a PED user. Three Packers players were also suspected of usage and will be interview. Mike Neal, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and Harrison will all be questioned regarding the report.

Gaining weight is the offseason work that Cleveland coaches want Rashard Higgins to accomplish.

Higgins was a monster in college. He played at Colorado State and in 2014, he lead the nation in both yards and receiving touchdowns. He was also a finalist for the Biletnikoff award, which is for the most outstanding receiver in college. But he's not in college anymore, the NFL is a different animal. He's 6'2 and only 190, he should probably be around 200-205 pounds.

Nick O'Leary is a long shot to make the Bills roster out of training camp.

O'Leary was a 6th round pick last season and barely saw the field. Charles Clay and Jim Dray (no rhyme intended), are basically locked in as the top two tight ends. This leaves O'Leary in a battle for the third TE spot with Chris Gragg and Blake Annen. Considering they are labeling O'Leary as the long shot, Gragg appears to have the third spot barring amazing play from O'Leary. Gragg played in a few games last season and had two notable games where he combined for 12 catches and 89 yards in his two key performances.

Tarvaris Jackson is free on $2,500 bond.

Jackson was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Jackson is 33 years old and basically just ended his NFL career. He threatened to kill a woman multiple times. Jackson hasn't started a game since 2011 and hopefully he learned his lesson. It would be extremely surprising to see Jackson on an NFL team again.

Paul Manziel, the father of Johnny Manziel, said his son is a "druggie that needs help."

I was not aware that Mr. Manziel moonlights as Captain Obvious. Johnny Manziel has seen his football career, and his life spiral down the tubes. At this point, he needs to get his life together, and not worry about football. Once he does that, and can prove his nose is clean, it is likely he would find a team, at least as a backup.

Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after reportedly pulling a gun on his wife Friday.

Not much to say on this one. Jackson was looking to compete for the backup job to Russell Wilson, but that looks like a long shot, as the Seahawks will likely cut him after this incident. By the looks of the charges, football appears to be the least of his worries.

Saints have placed Kyle Wilson on injured reserve.

Wilson, who was a former first round pick of the Jets back in 2010, was placed on the injured reserve today, which will end his 2016 season before it even began. The 29-year-old cornerback's reason for going on the injured reserve is unknown, and at this point of the season teams are under no obligation to disclose injury information so it might be a while before we really know what's wrong with him. He appeared in 14 games with the Saints, making four starts, and had one interception and 25 tackles last season.

There has been no conversations in the Von Miller contract negotiations since early in the month of June.

Miller gave up any and all leverage he had in the contract negotiations when he said he wasn't going to hold out for more money. Since then, the two sides have not agreed upon anything and it doesn't seem like any deal is imminent. Miller is one of the best pass rushers in all of football and the Broncos need to retain him for the long term.

Dorial Green-Beckham is more confident and comfortable heading into his second season in the NFL.

Green-Beckham was selected in the second round of the 2015 draft and ended hauling in 32 passes for 549 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. However, Head Coach Mike Mularkey has stated this offseason that he wants more from the receiving corps. Green-Beckham seems to be responding to that sentiment during OTAs, but finds himself in a battle with Kendall Wright and rookie Tajae Sharpe to be the Titans' No. 1 wide receiver.

Muhammad Wilkerson is running on grass without a brace.

Even with the Jets and Wilkerson not expected to work out a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline, this is a good sign that Wilkerson might be able to play even healthier than the team expected since the knee brace seemed like something he was going to wear throughout the season coming up. Wilkerson has the option to either sign his franchise tender or sit out the season. The latter is highly unlikely considering he would lose $924,000 for every skipped game. He is probably entering his final season with the Jets.
