Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon conceded to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio on Wednesday that Hakeem Nicks' (foot surgery) goal to return by training camp is "overly optimistic."

Hanlon confirmed that the fractured fifth metatarsal in Nicks' foot is a significant enough injury that he's not going to be participating in all-out football drills eight weeks after it happened. The Giants still anticipate at least 12 weeks' worth of recovery for Nicks, and they'd be silly to rush him back just for training camp practices. We do expect him to play in the September 5 NFL opener.

According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, the "rumor in league circles" is the Bears are "pondering" Stanford DE Solomon Thomas, LSU S Jamal Adams, and Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore if they stay put at No. 3 overall.

But Biggs' gut feel is that he "can't see how" the Bears fail to come out of Round 1 without a quarterback, especially if they are able to swing a deal to move down the board. Of course, that would require a trade partner, and there are a number of other teams in the top-10 trying to move down. Biggs thinks UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky may be squarely in Chicago's crosshairs.

According to the Chicago Tribune, there was "scuttlebutt in league circles" Monday night that the 49ers could take Leonard Fournette at No. 2 overall.

Ex-NFL personnel man Greg Gabriel tweeted something similar on Tuesday. The Chicago Trib's Brad Biggs also passes along "chatter" that the Jaguars are looking into quarterbacks at the No. 4 pick, while it's believed at least half of the teams drafting inside the top ten hope to move down. If a team like the 49ers can't execute a move down the board, we suppose it's possible they could settle for someone like Fournette. It's been reported that the 49ers are considering "giving up" on contract-year RB Carlos Hyde due to persistent injuries.

Rams franchise player Trumaine Johnson is open to an extension.

Franchised two years in a row then placed on the trade market, Johnson's situation in Los Angeles has seemingly turned toxic, but he's open to staying if the Rams are willing to pay up. Everything the Rams have done the past two years has suggested they are not. The sides have until July 15 to work something out.

Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will meet with Cleveland police on Monday.

Accused of rape, Conley "fervently" denies the allegations. A projected first-round pick, Conley had been in Philadelphia for the draft, but has returned home. Much like La'El Collins two years ago, it's possible Conley goes from Day 1 to undrafted if his situation doesn't have a sense of resolution by Thursday. Seeing as he's not meeting with police until next week, teams are extremely unlikely to feel comfortable with his situation by draft time.

NFL reinstated suspended Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington.

Washington has been suspended since May 2014 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Technically, he's yet to be suspended for his 2013 domestic violence charges. The Cardinals greeted Washington's unexpected return with a lukewarm statement. "Considering we have been prohibited from having contact with him over the last three years, it would be premature today to discuss a potential return to the team." Washington turned 30 during his marathon ban, and has appeared in 12 games since 2012. In theory, the Cardinals could use Washington's help at inside linebacker, but he's a complete mystery at this point. Washington was a star before his suspension. It's quite possible he's granted his release.

NFL conditionally reinstated suspended Steelers WR Martavis Bryant.

Bryant's second NFL suspension is over after 407 days. Many players — Justin Blackmon, Daryl Washington, Josh Gordon — fail to make it back after being slapped with indefinite bans, so Bryant is ahead of the curve in that regard. He's one strike away from what would likely be permanent ineligibility, however. The 25 year old has to be a perfect citizen from here on out. A pterodactyl-like touchdown scorer, Bryant has 14 scores in 21 career games, and has averaged 17.3 yards per catch. He has the ability to be one of the biggest difference makers in the game at receiver. He was desperately missed opposite Antonio Brown in 2016. Bryant's upside and downside are equally self evident.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Browns have talked with three teams picking in the top eight about a trade up from No. 12.

Likely to select Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, the Browns might have to move up from No. 12 for their latest "quarterback solution." The Browns have been linked to UNC's Mitchell Trubisky for months, but his stock is unclear. He could go anywhere from No. 2 to No. 12. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported as recently as three days ago that the Browns were still seriously considering Trubisky at No. 1, but it's ultimately unlikely.

Teddy Bridgewater (knee) remains without a timetable for a return.

GM Rick Spielman did say that Bridgewater had a "great" first week of offseason practice. Bridgewater is eight months removed from blowing up his knee in a training camp practice. Every indication is that Sam Bradford will remain the Vikings' starter for 2017.
Apr 25 - 2:59 PM

Stefon Diggs blames his 2016 durability woes on himself.

Slowed by groin, knee and hip issues, Diggs missed three games, and was limited for others. Diggs said he's "taking steps" to avoid a repeat in 2017. Reading between the lines, Diggs clearly believes he wasn't in good enough shape. Proper conditioning is a lesson young NFLers often learn the hard way. The playmaker will begin 2017 in the WR2/3 mix.

Contract-year QB Sam Bradford has yet to have extension talks with the Vikings.

Bradford is due $17 million between salary and bonuses in what will be his age-30 season. Bradford stayed healthy last year, setting some fraudulent records in the process, but didn't elevate his offense. He's not the long-term answer in Minnesota anymore than he was in Philadelphia or St. Louis.

Titans exercised LT Taylor Lewan's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The move was a formality, as Lewan has emerged as one of the league's best young left tackles. The sides will surely talk about a long-term extension this summer. Locking Lewan up now would free 2018 up for Marcus Mariota long-term talks.
