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.

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.

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
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
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.
