The Cardinals plan to exercise LT D.J. Humphries' 2019 team option.

It will pay Humphries around $9.6 million in the final year of his rookie deal. Humphries has not lived up to his No. 24 overall draft status to this point and has yet to play a full season. However, the team has been pleased with his progress since moving to left tackle in 2016. Humphries is coming off a torn MCL and dislocated knee cap but is fully expected to be ready Week 1.

On his GM Street podcast, The Ringer's Mike Lombardi suggested Georgia RB Sony Michel could slip in the draft for medical reasons.

"There's a lot of teams telling me there's a medical concern here, so he could slip a little bit," said Lombardi, a longtime NFL executive who most recently worked for the Patriots. "His medical grade is a little iffy." Lombardi admitted he doesn't know exactly what the medical issue is. On tape, Michel is arguably the second-best running back in this class behind only Saquon Barkley.

49ers GM John Lynch said the team remains interested in re-signing free agent S/LB Eric Reid.

Reid has drawn minimal interest on the open market despite being 26 and in the prime of his career with a multi-position skill set and coming off a strong year. His kneeling during the national anthem is certainly playing a role. With the Niners, Reid wouldn't be guaranteed a starting job, which is the hangup.

The girlfriend of Cowboys DT David Irving has retracted domestic violence allegations she made against him.

Frisco (TX) police took the girlfriend's allegations seriously enough to launch an investigation, which will likely continue despite the woman's retraction. "I was very upset and made some allegations that were false," the woman clarified on Monday. "David did not put his hands on me at any time." Irving already has a checkered off-field history and is playing 2018 on a one-year tender.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor will undergo a neck scan in late June/early July.

More will be known about Chancellor's NFL future then. It's been reported Chancellor intends to keep playing, but he needs to receive medical clearance first. Chancellor's $6.8 million base salary for 2018 is already guaranteed.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini expects the Jets to decide between Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen at the No. 3 overall pick.

Conventional pre-draft wisdom is that the Jets are zeroed in on Mayfield, but Cimini passes along "some support" for Rosen inside the organization. The Jets likely have similar grades on Mayfield, Rosen, and Sam Darnold, explaining why they were comfortable moving up to No. 3 in the draft. They'll simply take whichever quarterback falls. With Darnold expected to be drafted at No. 1 and Saquon Barkley favored to go to the Giants at No. 2, Gang Green's decision will likely come down to Mayfield-versus-Rosen.

Per NFL Network's Jane Slater, the Cowboys envision Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch as "(Brian) Urlacher 2.0."

It's an aggressive comparison to the first-ballot Hall of Famer, but not an uncommon one. NFL draft insider Tony Pauline passed along rumors Vander Esch was drawing Urlacher comparisons from scouts shortly after the college season. In addition to wide receiver, the Cowboys have a big need at linebacker. They want to keep Sean Lee on the weak side, move Jaylon Smith to the strong side, and find a true three-down "Mike."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Monday that the Bills are unlikely to trade up to No. 2 in the draft, but may make a move to No. 5 or 6.

The Bills, of course, are in the quarterback market and have two first-rounders, two second-round picks, and two third-rounders to use as trade bait. "From what I understand, it's not going to be one of those things where they just sell out and (trade) all the way to No. 2 with the Giants," Rapoport said. "I would be at this moment surprised if that happens." Rapoport considers a deal with the Broncos at No. 5 or Colts at No. 6 much more likely.
