Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reports that the Falcons are asking Osi Umenyiora to take a pay cut.

Osi isn't likely to want to give back any of his 2014 salary given that he was still productive in 2013 (47 tackles, 7.5 sacks). The Falcons needs pass rushers so it remains to be seen if it's wise for the Falcons to take the risk of alienating the player they really need. Osi is due $3.5 million in the coming season.

The Bucks are expected to sign Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract.

Johsnon is currently averaging 20.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in 34 minutes per game down in the D-League right now and with O.J. Mayo banged up, the Bucks could certainly use a little extra depth. He might see some minutes here and there but nothing that's going to put him on the fantasy map just yet. Analysis: Howard Bender

Sources close to the situation, say the Miami Dolphins are confident they will get Ndamukong Suh.

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are preparing to offer Suh a contract somewhere in the neighborhood of $102 million. Teams are not able to discuss anything with the players yet, but contact with agents is still permitted. Expect a more official announcement later this week. Analysis: Howard Bender

All eyes are on the Padres’ third base competition, which manager Bud Black deemed this week as the most important position to sort out this spring. For now, Yangervis Solarte and Will Middlebrooks are in the lead.

Cory Spangenberg and Ramiro Pena are the other two options, but both of them are better fits as utility guys. Middlebrooks and Solarte are probably neck and neck right now but the team seems to be leaning towards Middlebrooks for his power potential.

Alex Colome still hasn't reported to camp due to a visa issue.

The Rays currently have Colome penciled in as their fifth starter, but obviously now have growing concerns because of this visa issue. The sooner he gets things taken care of the sooner he gets into camp and can start working. The team is obviously hoping that he is adhering to his workout program while still at home. Analysis: Howard Bender

Kyle Blanks (both Achilles) continues to progress toward seeing game action in the middle or late next week.

Blanks is a dark horse to make the Rangers 25-man roster, so the sooner he gets on the field, the better his chances are of potentially landing a gig as a back-up 1B/OF. It's a tough road he's going down, so keep your expectations in check. Analysis: Howard Bender

Colts announced the team will not re-sign wide receiver Reggie Wayne.

It's either the retirement home or another team, but Wayne's days in Indianapolis are officially over. The Colts are rebuilding and as important as Wayne has been to the team in recent history, everyone knew the end was near. Expect Wayne to make a decision regarding his future soon. Analysis: Howard Bender

Marques Colston has restructured his contract to remain with the Saints

Colston would prefer to stay with the Saints and in their good graces as he knows working with Drew Brees is a sure-fire way to help rebuild his stats. So long as he is healthy, Colston remains a viable option as a WR2/3 in most formats. Analysis: Howard Bender

Omar Infante (elbow) was scratched from Friday's lineup.

Infante continues to try and work his way back from last season's elbow injury but he and the Royals are going to take it slow. The hope is that he's on the field for enough spring games to open the season as the starting second baseman, but if he is unable to do so Christian Colon could earn a spot on the 25-man roster and see some time in the field. Analysis: Howard Bender
