Shane Vereen (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Vereen has been limited all season, but finally made his 2012 debut in Sunday's win, gaining five total yards on two touches. With Brandon Bolden solidifying back-up duties behind Stevan Ridley, Vereen is well off the fantasy radar.

The Palm Beach Post expects the Dolphins to exercise DeVante Parker's fifth-year team option.

Parker has disappointed through three seasons, but he just turned 25 and maintains late-breakout potential. The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad expects Parker's fifth-year option to be worth roughly $9.5 million. Fifth-year team options for former first-round picks are guaranteed only for injury, so the Dolphins could conceivably release Parker next offseason if he doesn't step up in 2018.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes the Jets are targeting Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold with the No. 3 pick.

The Jets haven't had much interest in Josh Allen and look to have Mayfield slightly ahead of Josh Rosen. With Allen the top pick favorite, Darnold could slide to the Jets if the Giants pivot to Saquon Barkley. Mayfield has been rising over the last week and isn't expected to fall out of the top-five picks.

Franchise player Le'Veon Bell did not report for the Steelers' offseason program this week.

These "practices" are voluntary, and it was widely expected that Bell wouldn't report, as he remains unsigned on the franchise tag for the second consecutive year. Contract talks have completely stalled and possibly broken off. The sides have until mid-July to hammer out a long-term deal, one that looks like a long shot right now. Bell would then likely skip training camp as well.

NESN's Doug Kyed reports the Patriots have "expressed interest" in UCLA QB Josh Rosen.

It's a virtual lock the Patriots are going to use some of their four first- and second-round picks -- or package multiple together -- to pick a passer, and Rosen seems to be the one falling the most in recent mock drafts. He's no sure thing to go in the top 10, but Rosen should be off the board in the top half of the first round. New England would have to move up for Rosen, and it holds the Nos. 23, 31, 43, and 63 overall picks in rounds one and two.

According to NBC Sports Boston's Mike Giardi, Tom Brady has continued his normal workout regimen and diet in preparation for the upcoming season, and a pair of Patriots teammates said Brady has never indicated that he plans to retire.

ESPN caused a stir Wednesday morning, reporting that Brady has "not committed" to playing in 2018. It's as if everything needs to be confirmed these days, which Brady did in February. Brady has never indicated he was considering retirement, and as the hours pass, it's looking like a total non-story. Brady is even planning normal off-site offseason workouts with his fellow offensive players. It's a near-certainty that Brady will be under center, health-willing, for New England Week 1.

According to ESPN's Todd McShay, Georgia ILB Roquan Smith is "the guy [the Raiders] want" at No. 10 overall.

"Roquan Smith is the guy," McShay said on a conference call Wednesday morning. "I don’t know that they would be willing to give away additional picks later to go up and get him. But he’s the guy they want." Smith and Va. Tech's Tremaine Edmunds are the top-two inside linebacker prospects in this class, and the Raiders seem to prefer Smith. In Oakland, Navorro Bowman remains a free agent, and the team has no clear heir in the middle. McShay compared Smith to Luke Kuechly and Jonathan Vilma. Extraordinarily athletic, Smith is a force both in the run game and coverage.

Titans exercised QB Marcus Mariota's 2019 fifth-year option.

This was an absolute no-brainer move, obviously. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Mariota has yet to play a full 16-game regular season due to injuries, but he's missed just two contests over the past two years, though he was noticeably hampered in several others. His 13 touchdown passes across 15 games last season made for extreme disappointment, but the Titans have brought in a forward-thinking offensive staff this year, led by OC Matt LaFleur, and the scheme is expected to cater to Mariota's strengths as opposed to square-pegging him into a round hole like the old staff. We've heard it before, but Mariota has big breakout potential in 2018.

According to Sports Illustrated's Ben Baskin, Penn State RB Saquon Barkley's agents don't want him to be picked by the Browns.

Barkley is represented by Roc Nation, which is headquartered in New York City, and the firm prefers Barkley is picked No. 2 by the Giants, landing the star running back smack-dab in the media capital of the world. According to Baskin, Barkley's agents have gone as far to advise Barkley to refuse to play in Cleveland, but Barkley "never considered" those demands. He's said he's willing to play wherever, including Cleveland. The Browns are an extreme long shot to take Barkley No. 1, but if he slips past the Giants at No. 2, there's a chance Cleveland would snag him at No. 4.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said "it feels inevitable" that the Giants will use the No. 2 overall pick on Penn State RB Saquon Barkley.

Giants beat writers have been suggesting for weeks now that the team is leaning away from a quarterback at No. 2, and that would leave Barkley, EDGE Bradley Chubb, and OL Quenton Nelson as the cream of the crop among non-passers. "I've heard very strongly that there are important people in the building who believe in Barkley and being a physical, run-first team," McShay said Wednesday. "Barkley can be the face of the team for the next 10 years." The Giants seem to be all-in on going for it again with a clearly-in-decline 37-year-old Eli Manning.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady has not committed to playing in 2018.

However, Schefter laces that with an "even though people who know him believe he will be back" statement. This has the feeling of a non-story turned into a story, but Brady is 41 years old and has a family that likely wants him to retire soon. "My money would be on him playing football for the foreseeable future," one person told Schefter. "I believe he's going to be there," another person who knows Brady said. The only other quarterback on the Patriots' roster is Brian Hoyer. New England is fully expected to use an early pick on a quarterback in next week's draft.

Jason Witten confirmed he'll play for the Cowboys in 2018.

Witten was drawing television interest in April but confirmed he has no interest in taking a studio job right now. "Just taking it one year at a time," he said. This was expected after he restructured his contract a few weeks ago. Coming off his lowest yardage total since his rookie season in 2003, Witten turns 36 in May.
