Adrian Peterson revealed to reporters Wednesday that he's now "wide open" when it comes to making cuts on his reconstructed left knee.

"Wide open" means A.P. has opened it up and is making cuts as he pleases. While Peterson concedes he's still "rebuilding strength," he says the cutting is coming along "well" and his recovery remains tremendously ahead of schedule. We want to see Peterson play in a preseason game before locking him in as a first- or even second-round fantasy pick, but early reports remain encouraging.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes coach Hue Jackson sees Duke Johnson "as an every-down back."

McManamon believes the previous regime in Cleveland saw Johnson as an every-down back as well, but a hamstring injury in training camp held him back. Despite his size (5'9, 210), Johnson had the look of a three-down back in college and could certainly handle more than the 104 carries he saw last season. If Isaiah Crowell falters, Johnson could find himself in a workhorse role.

With Mark Sanchez (thumb surgery) not expected to participate in OTAs, Paxton Lynch will see expanded first-team reps.

"Just watching him, I think he'll catch up pretty quick," said coach Gary Kubiak after rookie minicamp. The 26th overall pick in the draft, Lynch stands 6-foot-7, 244 and has dual-threat mobility, which will mesh well in Kubiak's bootleg-centric offense. Sanchez is a short-term placeholder at best. If Lynch practices and plays well in the preseason, he should be given a serious look to start in Week 1 against the Panthers.

Tom Brady's appeal in the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals argues that two judges who sided with the NFL to have Brady's suspension reinstated "got the law wrong."

Brady's team is asking the three judges who heard his initial case (two voted nay, one yay) to "rehear their arguments." "The panel decision stands in stark contrast with fundamental rules of labor law and undermines the rights of union members and employers alike," Brady attorney Theodore Olson wrote. "This court should grant rehearing or rehearing en banc." According to the Boston Herald, Brady has "told friends since January 2015 that he'll go to his grave believing he did nothing wrong" in the so-called Deflategate. On a personal note, we CAN'T WAIT for this whole thing to go away.

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney's foot issue was a Lisfranc injury, but did not require surgery.

Clowney says he is 100 percent healthy. "I feel great," Clowney said after Monday's OTAs session. "I got healthy enough to be where I want to be." The injury held Clowney out of Week 17 and Houston's humiliating Wild Card loss. The No. 1 overall pick of 2014 draft has appeared in just 17 of a possible 32 games. He's flashed enough when on the field that he can't yet be considered a bust, but 2016 is a crossroads year for the 23-year-old pass rusher.

Browns released WR Brian Hartline.

It's a surprise in that the Browns have zero receiver depth and Hartline was easily their best holdover, but entirely unsurprising in the context of their commitment to tanking the 2016 season. The Browns are playing for the future, and 29-year-old Hartline wasn't going to be a part of it. New coach Hue Jackson now has even more snaps to divvy up amongst his four rookie wideouts. Hartline should draw plenty of interest as a No. 3/4 receiver that can help move the chains.

Bills RCB Stephon Gilmore will be a no-show for OTAs as the sides continue to discuss an extension.

Bills GM Doug Whaley recently said he's "actively" trying to lock up Gilmore, whose $11-plus million salary cap number could be reduced with a long-term deal. Entering a contract year, Gilmore is likely targeting Josh Norman money in the five-year, $75 million range. Gilmore plans to spend the next few weeks training in Charlotte and Miami. Gilmore should not be considered a "holdout" unless he skips the Bills' mandatory minicamp set for June 14-16.

Former NFL QB Johnny Manziel was kicked out of a Vegas nightclub on Friday night after he allegedly "hauled off and punched a guy."

Standing in a VIP booth at Jewel Nightclub, Manziel allegedly "got pushed" when club goers began pushing and shoving after rapper Drake showed up for a surprise performance. Manziel proceeded to "slug" a fellow club goer and was kicked out by security. TMZ also recently released photos of Manziel without his shirt in which he appears emaciated with tattoos all over his body.

Richard Sherman isn't convinced Marshawn Lynch is retired for good.

Michael Bennett recently said he thinks Lynch could "make an appearance later on." "I don't put anything past him," added Sherman. "He's about as predictable as a pair of dice. ... You would hope that he comes back. In the back of your mind, you hope he comes back and plays another year." The Seahawks placed Lynch on the reserve/retired list on May 5. We don't expect him to play in 2016, but it's not out of the question he gets an "itch" closer to training camp.

Jaguars signed No. 5 overall pick CB Jalen Ramsey to a four-year, $23.35 million contract.

The contract includes $15.18 million guaranteed and a team option for 2020. Ramsey tore his meniscus at OTAs and could be facing a lengthy absence. He'll meet with Dr. James Andrews this week to discuss surgery. When healthy, Ramsey will start opposite Davon House outside with Prince Amukamara operating as the slot corner. The Jags have now signed six of their seven draft picks.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jay Ajayi has taken control of the starting running back job.

"He’s been here every day. Done everything right," Gase said. "The rest of that group has done a good job to try and keep up, but obviously he’s kind of separated himself." Ajayi has drawn praise from Gase multiple times this offseason. He’s the odds-on favorite to start and get all early-down carries. Third-rounder Kenyan Drake doesn’t profile for more than a complementary role.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Patriots have shown "preliminary" interest in free agent RB Arian Foster.

Foster's market has been slow to develop while recovering from a torn Achilles' and going on age 30. New England's running game was nonexistent last year after LeGarrette Blount (hip) and Dion Lewis (ACL) went down. Foster could prove to be a worthy flier if he can stay healthy. Still a week or two away from being able to pass a physical, Foster figures to sign somewhere before training camp. From a fantasy standpoint, New England's high-octane offense could present one of his better-case scenarios.
