Updating a previous item, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jaguars' trade-up target is Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon.

"The Jaguars would love to find a way to get Justin Blackmon," Schefter reported. The seriousness of Jacksonville's interest in moving up is unclear, but Schefter reports Jaguars GM Gene Smith is aware that Blackmon will not be available at the No. 7 overall pick. In order to secure this year's top-rated wide receiver, the Jaguars would have to leapfrog the Rams' pick at No. 6.

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.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco confirmed Melvin Gordon's fifth-year option will be picked up.

Gordon averaged below 4.0 yards per carry in each of his first three years, but the Bolts are comfortable with his progress in the passing game and ability to handle a near-full workload. Gordon is again on track to be a first-round fantasy pick, although the Chargers have openly stated they are interested in adding a running back. Gordon turned 25 earlier this month.

Raiders signed CB Daryl Worley, formerly of the Eagles.

Worley was cut by the Eagles after being arrested for DUI, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, and disorderly conduct fighting on April 15. A 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers, Worley put some promising moments on tape as a rookie but struggled last season and fell into a rotation for snaps.

ABC Dallas reports Cowboys DL David Irving is being investigated for domestic violence.

Irving was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend in what he called a social media "hack," but Frisco, Tex. police are taking the matter seriously enough to launch an investigation. Irving signed his restricted free agent tender just last week. He notched seven sacks in eight games in 2017. Irving served a four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy last season, and is now looking at something much more serious.

49ers GM John Lynch has said the team will release Reuben Foster if his domestic violence charges are proven true.

"If charges proven true, if he did hit this young lady, he won't be part of this organization," was Lynch's blunt statement. Lynch did add that "patience is the right approach right now." Foster recently had a misdemeanor gun charge dismissed but is still facing felony gun and domestic violence charges. Lynch's words are unusually blunt for this sort of situation, and paint an ominous picture of Foster's 49ers future.

Raiders exercised WR Amari Cooper's fifth-year team option for 2019.

There was some manufactured drama over whether the Raiders would extend Cooper's rookie contract by a year, but this was always going to be the outcome. Slated to make $3.53 million this season, Cooper will be due roughly $13.9 million in 2019. The option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Raiders could still walk away unless Cooper fails his physical before the start of the next league year. Wildly inconsistent through his first three NFL campaigns, 24-year-old (in June) Cooper has nevertheless already posted two 1,000-yard seasons.

Tom Brady's agent fully expects his client to return for the 2018 season.

The "Brady might retire" story appeared mortally wounded mere hours after it arrived in the world, but it now sounds officially dead. Brady forcing the Patriots' hand with Jimmy Garoppolo and then retiring would have been an all-time betrayal. It also never seemed to have an actual chance of happening. Fresh off winning an MVP award at age 40 and throwing for over 500 yards in the Super Bowl, Brady will enter 2018 remaining one of the very best players in the league.

Landon Collins underwent surgery on his forearm Monday.

Collins originally underwent surgery after he broke his forearm last December, but the bone did not heal properly. The safety confirmed he would need a second surgery earlier this month. Collins is expected to be sidelined six-to-eight weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Ravens "are out" on free agent Dez Bryant.

A similar report popped up last week, but the signing of Willie Snead officially put the Ravens' interest to bed. Dez has also been linked with the Cardinals, Bills, and Packers, but nothing concrete has materialized to this point. It is possible both Dez and his potential suitors want to see how the draft shakes out before making any decisions.
