Chiefs signed second-round DT Breeland Speaks to a four-year contract.

An early-career defensive tackle who moved to end last season, Speaks put versatility on tape and logged impressive 68th-percentile SPARQ results before the draft, suggesting room for further growth. Speaks is a boom-bust prospect with upside for a Michael Bennett-style role but a Datone Jones floor. Undersized but explosive, Speaks’ closest comp may be old Titans/Dolphins DL Jason Jones.

Cardinals signed WR Christian Kirk to a four-year contract.

Already locked into three-receiver sets, Kirk should open the year as a starter opposite Larry Fitzgerald. Even with Sam Bradford or rookie Josh Rosen at quarterback, that's a position that would have immediate fantasy relevance.

Reuben Foster reported to 49ers OTAs on Thursday.

Foster reported one day after he had domestic violence charges dismissed, and a weapons felony reduced to a misdemeanor. At one point, Foster's NFL career appeared in peril. Now, he is unlikely to face any league discipline.

Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall has lost roughly six pounds and hopes to lose five more.

Marshall is hoping to be lighter, quicker and to "move more efficiently." Headed into his age-29 campaign, Marshall bounced back from his injury-shortened 2016 last season but was not as effective as usual. For the first time, he earned negative marks from Pro Football Focus. Marshall was still on the field for nearly every snap, registering 106 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble.

Contradicting his public statement, Terrance Williams told police that Kendall Wright, whom Williams played with at Baylor, was the driver for his weekend car accident, and that Williams was not in the car.

Williams' initial comments to police basically contradicted everything he ended up saying in his public statement on Sunday. Whatever happened, Wright does not currently appear to be in any sort of trouble with the law. Williams is facing charges of public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident. His entire story can be found at the link below.

Bucs signed No. 12 overall pick DT Vita Vea to a four-year contract.

The deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. In three years at Washington, Vea tallied 15 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. Vea draws Haloti Ngata comparisons for his gargantuan size and powerful bull rush, but his get off is much less explosive, and Vea played only 62% of UW's 2017 defensive snaps. Still, Vea’s tape shows light feet for a big man, position flexibility, and an ability to create space for linebackers behind him to run free.

Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed Mark Ingram is expected to report for mandatory minicamp.

Although eligible to participate, the suspended running back is skipping voluntary OTAs. He's unhappy with his contract situation. He's heading into the final year of his deal. Ingram's ban and Alvin Kamara's emergence have made a summer extension extremely unlikely for the eighth-year pro.

Speaking Thursday, Saints coach Sean Payton said Cameron Meredith (knee) is "way ahead of schedule" in his recovery.

If you're not ahead of schedule this time of year, you're behind schedule. It's still good to hear the Saints are happy with Meredith's recovery. The ex-Bear is eight months removed from going under the knife to repair his ACL. There's a chance he's declared 100 percent ahead of training camp but it's more likely that he's brought along slowly, and perhaps held out of the preseason.

Dak Prescott said Tavon Austin will be used all over the formation with the Cowboys.

"Coaches have a great plan, whether it's getting him out of the backfield, lining him up at X, lining him up at Z, putting him in the slot," Prescott said. "He's a guy we get the ball in his hands, he'll score some points and get a bunch of yards in this offense." Earlier this month, EVP Stephen Jones said Austin is a "web back" who they want to get "a dozen to two dozen" touches per game. Consider us skeptical, but the Cowboys are shoveling as much coal into the hype train as possible.

The Times-Picayune's Josh Katzenstein writes Jonathan Williams is "among the players" who could step up with Mark Ingram suspended.

Williams was signed off the Broncos' practice squad last November, but he never cracked the active roster. With Mark Ingram suspended the first four games, he has a better shot to make the gameday roster this season, but he will need to beat out Daniel Lasco, Trey Edmunds, and rookie Boston Scott for the honor. Even if he does, Williams is unlikely to see much work behind Alvin Kamara.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said No. 7 overall pick Josh Allen is currently working as the third-team quarterback.

A.J. McCarron and Nathan Peterman are splitting first-team reps, and Allen is working behind them. It is not surprising the Bills are making the rookie work with the backups, but it is almost certainly a temporary situation. If he shows well in camp, Allen should open the season as the starter.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is "practicing fully" during OTAs.

Benjamin's health was always going to be important for the Bills, but that is especially true with the news Zay Jones underwent knee surgery last week. Benjamin caught 16 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in six games with the Bills last season, but he was never really healthy during that run.
May 24 - 10:53 AM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Zay Jones underwent knee surgery last week and will miss the rest of the offseason program.

Jones also underwent shoulder surgery in January. McDermott said the Bills are not worried the injury "will jeopardize his season," but it is yet another issue for a receiver coming off a dreadful rookie campaign. With Jones out, the Bills have Kelvin Benjamin and not much else at receiver.

Broncos sophomore TE Jake Butt said his knee "feels great."

Butt missed his rookie season recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in the Orange Bowl, but he is back to full strength now. "I honestly didn’t know," new quarterback Case Keenum said. "I knew he was injured, but I had no idea that it was even a knee issue. You can’t even tell. He’s running around making cuts and doing a great job." As long as his knee cooperates, Butt should find himself atop the depth chart Week 1.

Kevin White said "anything" is possible for him this season.

Coming off yet another lost season and an offseason which saw the Bears make several additions at receiver, White was not in the talking mood on Wednesday. Even so, he offered a brief update on his health -- "Really good" -- and said he is still confident in his abilities despite the Bears declining his fifth-year option earlier this month. "Really don’t bother me at all," White said. "I believe in myself." White has played five games since being selected No. 7 overall in the 2015 draft.
