Breshad Perriman Headshot

Perriman is not expected to have his fifth-year option picked up by the Ravens on May 5, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

The former first-round pick is at a crossroads with the team that spent the 26th overall selection on him in 2015. According to Hensley, Perriman is due a significant bonus early in training camp. If the Ravens decide to go in a different direction, they can either trade or release him. Perriman had a disastrous 2017 campaign in which he caught just 10 of 35 targets for 77 yards and zero touchdowns and was surpassed by the likes of Chris Moore and even Michael Campanaro by season's end. Baltimore's offseason activity that included adding three proven receivers shows that the team is not counting on Perriman being a major contributor this fall. And considering the team can save $1.6 million in cap room by cutting Perriman after June 1, there's at least a chance he won't be on the roster at all come Week 1.
6:46 pm (EST)
Rob Gronkowski Headshot

Gronkowski announced via his Instagram account Tuesday that he'll play in 2018, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

After meeting with coach Bill Belichick, Gronkowski committed to suiting up in the fall, ending months of speculation about his status. Whether or not the tight end would return was up in the air due to presumed dissatisfaction with Belichick and a desire for a new deal. Though Gronkowski put any questions about himself to rest with Tuesday's announcement, the Patriots will be waiting with bated breath for Tom Brady to make his own decision for the upcoming season. Assuming the band gets back together, the trio will be aiming for a third Super Bowl appearance in a row, and fourth in five campaigns.
6:44 pm (EST)
Ereck Flowers Headshot

Flowers (groin) has been the subject of pre-Draft trade discussions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Flowers, the ninth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, has started 47 of 49 possible games in his professional career. Despite consistently avoiding injury Flowers has not lived up to the expectations set by his high draft pedigree, and the New York offensive line struggled mightily in 2017. A fresh start for both sides could make sense -- the Giants signed left tackle Nate Solder to the largest offensive line contract in the NFL this offseason, while Flowers has yet to make an appearance at the team's voluntary workout program. The Giants could look to move Flower for capital in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft, and bring in a rookie prospect to protect veteran quarterback Eli Manning.
4:28 pm (EST)
Andrew Luck Headshot

Luck (right shoulder) took snaps and executed handoffs during Tuesday's minicamp practice, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Luck did not throw Tuesday, but his presence on the field and participation in limited activities nonetheless represents progress. GM Chris Ballard previously stated that the Colts' franchise QB will be eased along as he continues to work on "finishing up (the) strength part" of his rehab work. While there's not a firm timetable laid out for when Luck might move to working full-go, Mike Wells of ESPN.com relays that the team's decision to trade out of the No. 3 slot in the upcoming NFL draft bodes well for the organization's comfort level regarding where Luck is at at this stage. "We traded the third pick in the draft to move back to six," Ballard said last Friday. "I think that said we're pretty confident in where (Luck) is at."
4:16 pm (EST)
DeVante Parker Headshot

The Dolphins are picking up the fifth-year option on Parker's rookie contract, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

While he hasn't quite lived up to his status as the 14th overall pick from the 2015 draft, Parker has done enough to convince Miami that he's worth keeping under contract through 2019, given that his salary will only be guaranteed if an injury prevents him from passing a physical next offseason. He has a shot to replace Jarvis Landry as the top receiving threat in Adam Gase's offense, though free-agent additions Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola leave the Dolphins at least four-deep at wide receiver, with Kenny Stills also a clear part of the plan. Gase said in March that he still has full confidence in Parker, noting that the 25-year-old wideout was severely impacted by an ankle injury last season. The return of Ryan Tannehill (knee) should help matters, after Parker averaged only 11.8 yards on 57 receptions last season while playing with Jay Cutler, Matt Moore and David Fales.
4:00 pm (EST)
Marcus Peters Headshot

The Rams picked up Peters' fifth-year option Tuesday, keeping him under contract through 2019.

This was fully expected ever since the team agreed to trade for Peters in late February. He has 21 career interceptions, which is the most of any NFL player since the young defensive back entered the league as a first-round pick in 2015. Peters is expected to line up as a starting corner alongside Aqib Talib as part of a revamped Los Angeles secondary.
3:50 pm (EST)
Paul Perkins Headshot

Perkins appears to have suffered an offseason pectoral injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

The 2016 fifth-rounder was spotted with his left arm in a sling Tuesday, so his status will need to be monitored as the Giants' on-field activities progress. Perkins was limited to a bit role last season, carrying just 41 times for 90 yards and catching eight passes for 46 yards in 11 games. He's currently behind Jonathan Stewart and Wayne Gallman on the team's running back depth chart and there's also the possibility that the Giants could take the highly touted Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft. In short, Perkins must overcome some obstacles in order to reclaim a key role in his team's backfield in 2018.
3:22 pm (EST)
Dalvin Cook Headshot

Cook (knee) will be a limited participant in spring drills but is expected to be a full participant in training camp, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Cook is making good progress in his rehab from a torn ACL suffered Week 4 last season, and given that he's expected to be ready for training camp, he seems to be on track for Week 1. Expect the Vikings to ease Cook into the swing of things this spring and summer, as the second-year tailback will be 10 months removed from his major injury when training camp begins in late July. With Jerick McKinnon (49ers) no longer in the picture, Latavius Murray could be busy if the Vikings decide to carefully manage Cook's workload.
2:36 pm (EST)
George Winn Headshot

Winn (undisclosed) was released by the Colts on Tuesday with a failed physical designation.

Winn spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in a game since 2015, and has logged only 23 carries in his career. If Winn can get healthy, he'll hope to compete for a depth position elsewhere.
2:28 pm (EST)
Todd Gurley Headshot

The Rams have picked up Gurley's fifth-year contract option, USA Today reports.

The running back is thus under contract with the team through the 2019 season. Keeping Gurley around was a no-brainer for the Rams, following a stellar 2017 campaign in which the 23-year-old carried 279 times for 1,305 yards and 13 TDs while adding 64 catches for 788 yards and six receiving scores in 15 games. Heading into the draft, Gurley's top backups are Malcolm Brown and Justin Davis, neither of whom presents a major threat to his workload.
2:17 pm (EST)
Odell Beckham Headshot

Coach Pat Shurmur relayed Tuesday that he "absolutely" expects Beckham (ankle) to remain with the Giants, the New York Daily News reports.

Though Beckham hasn't been completely medically cleared in the wake of the left ankle surgery he underwent last October, he was present Tuesday for the start of the Giants' voluntary three-day minicamp. With trade chatter regarding the wideout now seemingly fizzling out, Beckham's health and supporting cast become more relevant topics. Barring any setbacks, however, he's expected to be back to 100 percent in advance of the coming season. Meanwhile, with Brandon Marshall (ankle) having been released, it's not hard to imagine the Giants adding more depth behind Beckham and Sterling Shepard. Free agent Dez Bryant is a name that comes to mind, but it's unclear if New York's brass sees a fit on that front.
1:50 pm (EST)
Melvin Gordon Headshot

The Chargers are slated to pick up Gordon's fifth-year option, a move that would keep the 25-year-old under contract with the team through the 2019 season, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gordon logged 284 carries for 1,105 yards and eight rushing TDs in 16 games last season, while adding 58 catches for 476 yards and four receiving scores. The 2015 first-rounder remains firmly atop the Chargers' running back depth chart, with Austin Ekeler and Russell Hansbrough also under contract with the team. Given that context, it's inevitable that depth at the position will be added, either through this week's draft or via free agency, with the likes of C.J. Anderson, DeMarco Murray and Alfred Morris all still looking for new teams.
1:23 pm (EST)
Odell Beckham Headshot

Beckham (ankle) will participate in a walk-through at voluntary minicamp Tuesday, but he won't be available to practice, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Despite rumors of a potential holdout, Beckham has been participating in the voluntary offseason workout program and is now taking part in the Giants' first minicamp of the year. His availability is still limited as he rehabs from October ankle surgery, but it at least seems he's on good terms with the team's new coaching staff. Scheduled to make $8.46 million in 2018 under the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, Beckham is angling for a long-term extension that likely would set a new precedent for wide receiver contracts.
11:24 am (EST)
Mike Williams Headshot

Williams is healthy for the Chargers' offseason program, Ricky Henne of the team's official website reports.

Williams injured his back shortly after being taken with the No. 7 overall pick in last year's draft, ultimately missing all of training camp and the first five weeks of the regular season. He finished his rookie campaign with 11 catches for 95 yards on 23 targets, logging 234 offensive snaps in 10 games while stuck behind Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin on the depth chart. The Chargers still have all three of those players on the roster, but they presumably hope (Mike) Williams will push Benjamin or Tyrell Williams for a regular spot in three-wide formations. The team retained Tyrell WIlliams with a second-round restricted free agent tender, while Benjamin has two seasons -- but no guaranteed money -- remaining on his own contract.
10:47 am (EST)
Sebastian Janikowski Headshot

Janikowski's one-year contract with the Seahawks includes a $600,000 signing bonus and a $100,000 bonus if he's on the 53-man roster for Week 1, ESPN.com's Brady Henderson reports.

Worth up to $2.015 million, the contract leaves little question that the Seahawks expect Janikowski to beat out Jason Myers in a kicking battle. The job won't necessarily equal fantasy relevance, as the Seahawks are in the process of transitioning to a younger roster, with Janikowski actually ranking as one of their more significant offseason additions. He said he's made a full recovery from the back injury that held him out for all of 2017.
10:14 am (EST)
Reuben Foster Headshot

49ers general manager John Lynch said Monday that Foster won't remain with the team "if these charges are proven true," ESPN.com reports.

Lynch is referring to Foster's felony domestic violence charge from a February arrest. The linebacker is being kept away from the 49ers while the legal process plays out, and he eventually could be placed on the commissioner's exempt list. Foster has a plea hearing scheduled for April 30.
Yesterday 9:27 pm (EST)
Morgan Burnett Headshot

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Burnett will open OTAs at free safety, Dave Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

When Burnett signed with Pittsburgh in March, most assumed he would slot in as the starting strong safety and push Sean Davis over to free safety. However, it seems like the Steelers -- at least momentarily -- may have something else in mind. While it appears likely that the team will experiment with a number of secondary arrangements as the offseason continues to unfold, IDP owners should take note of Burnett's possible position change, as free safeties naturally play further from the line of scrimmage than strong safeties and consequently tend to post inferior tackle numbers.
Yesterday 8:49 pm (EST)
Shaquil Barrett Headshot

Barrett officially signed his restricted free-agent tender Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Barrett is now under contract for one more season at a $2.9 million price tag. Though he remains behind Von Miller and Shane Ray on the depth chart, Barrett is a valuable piece of the Broncos' pass rush who collected 123 tackles with 11 sacks over the past three seasons -- while never missing a single game. However, Barrett won't be worthy of IDP consideration until he earns a starter's share of snaps.
Yesterday 8:24 pm (EST)
Darius Powe Headshot

The Giants waived Powe (foot) on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Powe, who went undrafted out of Cal in 2017, spent the majority of his rookie season on the Giants' practice squad before getting called up in December. Unfortunately, Powe fractured his foot on his first career reception Week 15 against the Cowboys and ended the year on injured reserve. While it isn't clear where he stands in his recovery, Powe will become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Yesterday 8:07 pm (EST)
Jerrol Garcia-Williams Headshot

Garcia-Williams signed his exclusive-rights tender Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Denver reports.

Garcia-Williams is mostly a special-teams player who notched two tackles as a rookie in 2017. The Hawaii product likely will serve in a similar capacity in 2018.
Yesterday 7:52 pm (EST)
Derrick Coleman Headshot

Coleman participated in a workout with the Jets on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Coleman played in all 16 games for Atlanta in 2017 after spending his first four pro seasons within the Seahawks organization. The free-agent fullback averaged just over 14 offensive snaps per game last year, serving almost exclusively as a blocker. The 27-year-old Coleman accumulated eight yards on two carries in his stint with the Falcons, adding two receptions for 20 yards.
Yesterday 7:24 pm (EST)
Brandon Brooks Headshot

Brooks restructured his contract with the Eagles on Monday, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Brooks has quickly established himself as one of the top interior linemen across the league for his on-field performance. However, it now appears he's helping the Eagles outside of the trenches as well. By restructuring his current deal, Brooks has allowed the Eagles to convert some of $8.75 million base salary into bonuses, which subsequently will free up some cap space for Philadelphia.
Yesterday 6:26 pm (EST)
Kam Chancellor Headshot

General manager John Schneider said Monday that Chancellor has a scan scheduled for late June or early July to determine his playing future, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Chancellor's 2017 campaign ended abruptly Week 10, when he sustained an unspecified neck injury and landed on injured reserve. In a press conference after the season, coach Pete Carroll revealed that Chancellor was in danger of not playing again. However, Chancellor threw a wrench into that line of thinking in February, stating he'll suit up again if he gains medical clearance. The crossroads for his career presumably will arrive early in the summer, but the Seahawks likely are inclined to address the situation with a draft pick later this week.
Yesterday 6:15 pm (EST)
Benson Mayowa Headshot

Mayowa signed with the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Recently dumped by Dallas, Mayowa will look to make the most of his opportunity with Arizona this summer. As of now, Mayowa figures to be able to carve out a depth linebacking role should he take advantage of the opportunity. The 26-year-old provides a nice balance of experience and potential as he heads to the desert.
