The Baton Rouge Advocate's Nick Underhill predicts C.J. Spiller will handle more touches than Mark Ingram this year.

Underhill guesses Ingram could handle 185 carries to 140 for Spiller, and the latter is sure to be used far more in the passing game. "With the baseline set, I expect Spiller to end up with more touches," writes Underhill. Underhill continues on Spiller, "I expect him to do big things" in Sean Payton's offense. While we'd still bet on Ingram leading New Orleans' backfield in usage, we can't rule out Spiller earning a sizable workload depending on health and performance, and playing a huge role as a receiver. Spiller has legitimate RB1 upside in PPR leagues.

Panthers signed QB Cam Newton to a five-year, $103.8 million contract extension.

The deal includes $60 million guaranteed, and $67.6 million over the first three years. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, that's a record for a three-year period. They're massive numbers, but we'll see how "guaranteed" Newton's $60 million truly is. Either way, it's a huge vote of confidence in a quarterback who hasn't always been the most consistent. Like the Panthers, however, we still believe in Newton's dual-threat upside. He's arguably the league's most-unique threat at quarterback, and has overseen back-to-back division winners. Newton has taken a ton of hits through four NFL seasons, but is still only 26. The Panthers were right to lock him up.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says the team is welcoming back Adrian Peterson "unequivocally."

For his part, Peterson said he "just wanted to (come back)," and that he has his eyes on a Super Bowl. "This past year has been emotional for both parties," Peterson said alluding to the months of tension. "I’ve learned a lot from my mistakes. And I’m moving forward." It sounds like Peterson and the Vikes have both found a solution they can get behind.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has declined to recuse himself from Tom Brady's appeal hearing.

"Because protecting the integrity of the game is the commissioner’s most important responsibility, I decline to rewrite our CBA to abrogate my authority and discretion to hear any appeal in a conduct detrimental proceeding," Goodell said. The NFLPA's request was always a long shot. Brady and Goodell will meet on June 23.

Sam Bradford (ACL) took part in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday.

This has been the plan for the past several weeks. Bradford rotated first-team reps with Mark Sanchez before sitting out team drills. Questions have arisen over the state of Bradford's surgically-repaired left knee, but he's still making enough progress to suggest he'll be ready for training camp. The Eagles have staked a ton on Bradford's shaky health.

Fred Jackson said the Bills want LeSean McCoy "to get 300-plus carries next year."

The Bills aren't tip-toeing around their running back situation with fake claims about competition. Even the players know McCoy is going to be shouldering a large percentage of the load as a true feature back. As the Bills try to hide their ugly quarterback situation, Rex Ryan will be grounding-n-pounding Shady. Running backs coach Anthony Lynn has already said he wants to slash Jackson's snaps in half.

Saints signed DE Cam Jordan to a five-year extension worth up to $60 million.

The deal, which runs through 2020, includes a hefty $33.6 million in guaranteed money and nearly $27 million over the next two years. It's a ton of cash considering the down year Jordan had in 2014, but we saw his sky-high ceiling in 2013 when he graded out as a top-four 3-4 end in PFF's grades. Still just 25 years old, Jordan 28 sacks in his last 48 games. The Saints continue to invest heavily in their defense and running game this offseason.

The Jaguars official website confirms T.J. Yeldon is "expected to be the starter as a rookie."

Even the team's in-house writers are handing the job to Yeldon, who will be backed up by Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart. The second-round pick is impressing early in the offseason program. "He looks really good in short-area change of direction," MLB Paul Posluszny said. "He looks really, really good there. It’s, ‘How does a guy move in space? How athletic is he?’ That’s what stands out. With him, he definitely has it." Yeldon's upside is capped a bit by the Jags' bottom-barrel offense, but he's going to see enough volume to be a RB2.

Adrian Peterson has returned to the Vikings and will attend Tuesday's OTAs.

The Vikings played hardball with Peterson and predictably won as he was never going to leave $12.75M on the table. "Basically it's time for me to come in and test the waters and re-familiarize myself with our offense and the direction they're trying to go in," he told ESPN's Josina Anderson. So all the drama over Peterson feeling scorned by the organization and wanting his 2016 contract guaranteed was just hot air. The Vikings did not adjust his deal. Coming off a year of rest and in a RB-friendly Norv Turner offense, Peterson is firmly in the top-5 fantasy pick discussion. NFL Network's Albert Breer said Tuesday the Vikings' offensive staff sees Peterson as a "350-carry centerpiece."

C.J. Anderson reported to Broncos OTAs weighing 221 pounds, down more than 20 from the 2014 offseason.

Anderson shed the weight by "modifying his diet, and running hills and tracks in Colorado and California." Anderson weighed 243 at last year's OTAs. He finished the 2014 season weighing 223, and has now shed two more pounds. Anderson said his summer plan is to "lose even a little more weight," cutting out burgers and ice cream and replacing them with chicken and fish. "Sometimes it tastes like I am eating the same thing everyday," acknowledged Anderson, "but I know what it's going to do for me and the team in the long run."

The Chargers have informed FS Eric Weddle that they will not discuss an upgrade to his contract.

Even after skipping Chargers Organized Team Activities, Weddle's agent says his client won't make a fuss. The sides have agreed to part ways following this season. "He'll be excited about playing this year and then hit free agency," said player rep David Canter. "We're disappointed and will continue to be disappointed. But Eric will go all out this season." Weddle is 30 years old. He'll collect $7.5 million in the final year of his deal.
