The Seattle Seahawks worked out free-agent CB A.J. Jefferson on Thursday.

A neck injury, an arrest on domestic assault charges and released by the Vikings -- all the things you could possibly want to add to your team. No matter where he lands, it's a minor role at best with absolutely no fantasy value.

Jeremy Maclin said he is fully recovered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will be a full go and have no limitations for training camp.

Keeper league owners who stashed Maclin can all rejoice right now. For those in re-draft leagues, his value is on the rise. With DeSean Jackson in Washington, Maclin is expected to see a ton of targets this year provided he stays healthy. He's proven himself to be a solid No. 1 guy at times, so as the primary in a Chip Kelly offense that also has a much more confident Nick Foles at the helm, we can expect Maclin to have his first 1,000-yard season with all the fixin's that come with such a player.

Update: Falcons will work out Jadeveon Clowney on Friday.

The Falcons own the sixth pick and unless they are considering trading up they will unlikely be able to land arguably the most talented player, albeit not necessarily the player with highest desire, in Clowney.

The Panthers have exercised their fifth-year option on QB Cam Newton. He's under contract through 2015 now.

No doubt the Panthers were going to exercise the option on their franchise quarterback. The question becomes for fantasy owners though, can Newton be trusted this coming season as he is recovering, supposedly at a rapid pace, from ankle surgery and does he have enough talent around him to make him worth the risk. I am leaning towards no.

WR Armanti Edwards is working out for the Seahawks, source said.

Edwards appeared in just two games for the Browns in 2013 and saw just five targets in an obviously limited role. However, he suffered an ankle injury and landed on injured reserve the rest of the way and he and the team ultimately reach an injury settlement. He'll make the tour around the NFL to look for work, but probably won't find more than just a reserve role available.

Falcons have the best odds at trading for the first pick to get Jadeveon Clowney.

The rumor mill is simply saying that the Falcons seem to have the inside track on a potential deal to move up for Clowney, but nothing yet about just how much this move is going to cost them. Considering the value and immediate impact potential of him, the price tag is probably pretty damn high.

49ers Aldon Smith will not be charged with a felony for allegedly telling TSA agents he had a bomb on him at LAX earlier this month.

And the hits just keep on coming. This is just yet another example of a ridiculously immature moron who has skated through life thanks to his talent on the field. Between the DUI arrests, the drug possessions, the stint in rehab and the gun charges, Smith is turning into a punchline rather than a professional. He may not be facing felony charges for this, but given his inane level of stupidity, more felony charges are just a matter of time.

The Baltimore Ravens re-signed wide receiver LaQuan Williams on Thursday, a potential boost for the team's special teams. 

Williams has decent speed but his hands come into question at times. He might crack the lineup as a potential No. 3 receiver, but his biggest impact will continue to be found in his work on special teams. Fantasy-wise, though, his value is minimal, if it exists at all.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Jake Locker (foot) is doing well and started light jogging. Locker is not expected do much on the field during minicamp.

The Titans just want to make sure that Locker is ready for the start of the season. If that means minimal work during OTAs and mini-camp, then so be it. Locker, who suffered a Lisfranc injury injury back on Nov. 10 and had surgery then to repair the damage, says that he'll be ready by June, so the team is comfortable with that timetable. He's outside the top-10 when it comes to fantasy quarterbacks, but if he stays healthy and gets the right pass-protection, he could be a decent option in deeper leagues with Nate Washington and an improving Kendall Wright as downfield targets.

Patriots signed LB Josh Hull. No financial terms were disclosed.

The 26-year old will slot in as a reserve linebacker and will probably spend most of his time on special teams this season. Last year, in a limited role for the Redskins, Hull recorded 14 tackles in 11 games.
