49ers signed rookie WR A.J. Jenkins, the No. 30 overall pick, to a four-year, $6.947 million contract.

Jenkins reported to rookie camp overweight before reportedly struggling in OTAs and minicamp. While he's off to a slow start in San Francisco, Jenkins could turn it around quickly with a big training camp -- and he has plenty of talent to do so. For now, we're avoiding Jenkins in fantasy drafts. He's behind Michael Crabtree, Randy Moss, and Mario Manningham on the depth chart.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco wouldn't rule out re-signing free agent TE Antonio Gates.

Following the season-ending ACL tear suffered by Hunter Henry on Tuesday, the Chargers are left with Virgil Green and a host of UDFAs at tight end. Gates turns 38 next month and has very little left at this point, but he obviously knows the system and has a great rapport with Philip Rivers. If he were to be re-signed, Gates would be an immediate red-zone threat but little else.

Free agent OG Richie Incognito was involved in an altercation at a Florida gym on Wednesday and is being held by police for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation.

It's called the Baker Act, which is an involuntary mental evaluation. Incognito allegedly threw a dumbbell at another man in a Boca Raton gym this morning "for no apparent reason" after first throwing a tennis ball at the gym-goer. Incognito was allegedly "rambling about the government and screaming at the other man to 'get off my f*cking playground'." This is the second time Incognito has been held under the Baker Act, with the first coming in 2014. Incognito is a free agent after being released by the Bills this week. He had planned to continue his career.

Free agent TE Marcedes Lewis will visit the Packers this week.

Lewis was released by the Jaguars more than two months ago, and this is the first known interest we've seen emerge for him. He just turned 34 last week and spent 12 seasons with Jacksonville. Green Bay has Jimmy Graham and Lance Kendricks at tight end, but Lewis could provide help as a blocker.

The NFL will not require players to be on the field for the national anthem in 2018.

The media owned by the league is spinning this as a "compromise," but it's hardly that. As Judy Battista puts it, "If players are on sideline, will stand. But players may choose to stay in the locker room if they prefer not to stand." Her colleague at NFL Media, Ian Rapoport adds, "Respecting the anthem will be paramount if you’re on the sideline. Teams can also set their own policies. Compromise all around." Compromise for the league owners, maybe, but the players had zero say in this said "compromise." The owners are simply trying to keep the anthem "protesters" and "disrespecters" off the field for the song. It may not even work. If a player has strong feelings toward social injustice -- we assume they do if they're kneeling -- a fine may not be strong enough "punishment" to keep him off the field during the anthem. The NFL continues to find ways to get in its own way and fuel a fire that keeps burning.

According to ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson, second-rounder Anthony Miller is "earmarked" for the slot receiver job.

Allen Robinson is working as the X with Taylor Gabriel at the Z spot. Robinson was signed to be Chicago's new No. 1 wideout, and Gabriel is expected to fill the big-play, deep-threat role in coach Matt Nagy's offense. The Bears traded up for Miller at No. 51 overall. It's not out of the question that Miller could be second on the team in targets as a rookie behind Robinson.

Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL at Chargers OTAs on Tuesday.

What a devastating blow to a player who was projected to play a massive role in a Chargers offense without Antonio Gates in it for the first time in 15 years. Henry is obviously done for the season, and it leaves Virgil Green currently atop the depth chart. It’s fair to wonder if the Bolts will turn back to Gates after they told him they were moving on earlier this offseason. However, Gates showed he has little to nothing left in the tank. Perhaps the Chargers will use more three- and four-wide sets with their abundance of receivers, including Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams, and Travis Benjamin. GM Tom Telesco may also explore the trade market.

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports the Browns offered the Eagles the No. 35 overall pick for Nick Foles before eventually trading for Tyrod Taylor.

Per Silver, the Eagles consulted Foles, who said he wished to remain in Philadelphia. The sides later reached a reworked contract that gave Foles 2018 incentives and the option to leave in 2019. It's nice to see a team do right by a player, but the Eagles should have sold high on their Super Bowl hero. As it is, he's excellent quarterback insurance as Carson Wentz completes his recovery from a torn ACL.

The NFL has approved revised kickoff rules for 2018.

The biggest change is that running starts are no longer allowed for the kicking team. Various positioning changes have also been made, while two-man wedge blocks have been outlawed. An outline of the changes can be found at the link below.

Ryan Tannehill (knee) is practicing without a brace in OTAs.

Doing "everything" in OTAs, Tannehill is either fully recovered or almost there. Practicing without a brace is a change from last offseason, where Tannehill wore one in every practice in an effort to get used to it for the regular season. The brace did not stop Tannehill from re-injuring his ACL. Now surgically-repaired, Tannehill's knee should be stronger than it was last summer.

Raiders S Obi Melifonwu (hip) is not close to a return.

"He doesn’t look close to me at all," were coach Jon Gruden's words on Tuesday. "I’ll leave it at that. He doesn’t look close to me at all." Gruden's tone seemed to indicate he believed Melifonwu should be further along in his rehab. Gruden said just last month Melifonwu's return wasn't far off. The No. 56 overall pick of last year's draft, Melifonwu was limited to five games by injury.

Raiders acquired QB Christian Hackenberg from the Jets in exchange for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick.

A move too beautiful for words. Mere hours after criticizing the Jets' coaching staff for failing to fix his terrible mechanics, Hackenberg has been acquired by back-to-the-future coach Jon Gruden. Even in Gruden's prehistoric environment, Hackenberg will be facing almost impossible odds of making the roster, as evidenced by the Jets' "compensation." He starts out behind Derek Carr, E.J. Manuel and Connor Cook on the depth chart. One of the biggest draft reaches in recent memory — Hackenberg never looked like a legitimate prospect at Penn State before the Jets selected him with the No. 51 overall pick in 2016 — Hack is going to need a miracle to prolong his NFL career beyond 2018.
