Matt Schaub will visit with the Ravens this week.

Schaub is desperately looking for work here after a failed attempt with the Raiders last season. At this point, though, he doesn't stand much of a chance at a starting job anywhere, but could be a fairly serviceable back-up for the Ravens and Joe Flacco. Analysis: Howard Bender

Eagles announce a one-year contract extension for DeMeco Ryans.

Ryans recorded 45 tackles and one interception over eight games before tearing his Achilles tendon. The Eagles will still extend him as they believe that, even at 30-years old, he has plenty left in the tank. Analysis: Howard Bender

Demaryius Thomas won't participate in Broncos' offseason workouts.

Thomas will not participate in Peyton Manning's annual Duke University passing academy or join Broncos teammates for the offseason program as he believes the risk of injury in May or June is too high. What it is, is a tactic used by players who have been hit by the franchise tag and are trying to gain leverage in negotiations down the road. While Thomas' fantasy owners are okay with the decision, it could create an internal rift and cause distractions. Analysis: Howard Bender

LB Rolando McClain is visiting the Patriots Monday.

He recorded 81 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and one forced fumble over 13 games for the Cowboys last year. This season, though, he will be facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. We'll see what Bill Belichick thinks about him to see if he's worth the wait.  Analysis: Howard Bender

Former Houston Texans center Former Houston Texans center Chris Myers is visiting the Seahawks is visiting the Seahawks Monday.

It is surprising that Myers has taken this long to make his first official visit after being cut by the Texans one week before free agency. The Seahawks are a natural fit being that they just traded their All-Pro center Max Unger to New Orleans in the deal for Jimmy Graham. He has made 128 straight starts, Myers continues to be serviceable in 2014.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Panthers signed RB Jordan Todman to a 1-year deal.

You would think a team with Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart at the top of their running back depth chart would want to hold onto any running back. Jordan Todman was felt to be expendable by Jacksonville. Todman will battle for a spot in the Panthers backfield behind Jonathan Stewart. He will also have a chance to be the primary kick returner.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

The Falcons were fined $350,000 and will forfeit their fifth-round selection in the 2016 Draft for pumping in fake crowd noise during games.

There have been a few dome teams who have been accused of this in the past but this is the first time there has been a punishment handed down. Hopefully, this will deter any team from doing this in the future.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Eagles signed WR Miles Austin.

After a disappointing season with the Browns which was also marred with a kidney injury, Austin heads back to the NFC East to join the Eagles who are obviously hoping he can return with some of that old 2009 magic. There's not much of a receiving corps there, so if he plays well in camp, he could see a decent-sized role. Analysis: Howard Bender

Eagles are expected to bring WR Miles Austin in for a workout this week.

Austin will visit Philadelphia and Chip Kelly's machine in hopes to find a spot that was vacated by Jeremy Maclin's departure to Kansas City. He had 47 catches and 568 yards with two touchdowns in Cleveland last season before being placed on IR with a kidney issue after 12 games. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Packers offered defensive tackle B.J. Raji a one-year deal.

The Packers have apparently offered Raji a one-year deal for $2 million this year and the likelihood he signs it seems strong. He signed a one-year deal for twice that much last season, but then missed the whole year with a biceps injury. The team has already signed Letrou Guion, who replaced Raji as the starter last season, but they'd love to have both of them back to work the defensive line. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Packers and Letroy Guion have reached an agreement on a 1-year deal, per a source. It's Expected to be signed by Tuesday.

The veteran defensive tackle will return to Green Bay on a one-year deal after playing in all 16 games last season, recording 32 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks, a career-high. He had visited the Seahawks in hopes of finding a new home, but returns to the Packers for at least another year. Analysis: Rob Trayah

WR Hakeem Nicks is traveling Monday to California to visit the 49ers.

Nicks will visit the 49ers after spending last season in Indianapolis as their No.3 WR and catching 38 passes fro 405 yards and four touchdowns. He will look to add depth in a shrinking wide receiver group that has seen Stevie Johnson and Michael Crabtree already leave the west coast. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Ex-coach Josh Heupel talked Sam Bradford out of quitting.

Not the most encouraging news if you are an Eagles fan as Bradford is now your starting QB and was a decision away from ending his career. The former St. Louis Ram has torn an ACL twice in his six year career and never fully developed into the number one overall talent that he garnered. He gets a fresh start in Philly after being traded for Nick Foles and joins Chip Kelly's high powered offense that has been revamped for 2016.  Analysis: Rob Trayah

Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.

Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Demarcus Dobbs re-signs with Seahawks on one-year deal.

Dobbs played just four games with the Seahawks last season, and in 49 career games he has never recorded a sack. He provides depth on the defensive line but nothing more. Analysis: Steve Pimental
