According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the feeling around the NFL is that the Eagles will make a "heavy push" to land Oregon's Chip Kelly as Andy Reid's head-coaching replacement.

It's been no secret for months that Kelly is heading to the NFL in 2013. The Ducks' season ends after the Fiesta Bowl on January 3, and league sources tell La Canfora the Eagles will be among the first -- if not the first -- team to schedule an interview with Kelly after the game. Winning the Kelly sweepstakes could potentially rekindle the Eagles' interest in retaining Michael Vick. Kelly's high-speed, high-volume spread offense is quarterbacked by an athletic distributor of the football who presents a dual-threat dilemma for defenses.

The attorney for the girlfriend of Reuben Foster, who accused Foster of domestic violence in February, is now saying Foster never injured her.

The woman says she fabricated the allegation, and pictures used as evidence against Foster actually came from another fight, with a woman. "(Foster) did not strike her, injure her or threaten her," said the woman's attorney. This is a huge break for the 49ers, and slightly lessens their linebacker need before the draft. Foster was one of the NFL's highest-impact rookies last year.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers are "plotting" a move up in the first round.

The Packers have the No. 14 pick, but will likely need to move up to land Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick. They've also been linked to Florida State S Derwin James, Ohio State CB Denzel Ward and Iowa's Josh Jackson. Without much draft ammunition, Green Bay may have to trade future picks to get a deal done.

NFL reporter Ed Werder reports free agent Dez Bryant turned down a multi-year contract from the Ravens and wants a one-year, prove-it deal.

Werder, formerly of ESPN, is based out of the Dallas area and has big connections in the area. Once Bryant passed on Baltimore's offer, the Ravens likely turned their attention to Willie Snead and have moved on from Bryant. Bryant will be much more attractive to teams on a one-year contract as well. He's aiming for a big season in hopes of securing a multi-year deal in 2019.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports "eight teams" have expressed interest in free agent C.J. Anderson.

We don't have the identity of any of these supposed eight teams, and it sounds like an extremely agent-fueled report. Anderson has drawn zero known interest in the nine days since he was released by Denver but will assuredly find a job (likely rather quickly) after this weekend's draft.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots' interest in Louisville QB Lamar Jackson is "legit."

Jackson had two separate workouts with the Patriots this draft season, holding a private one in South Florida with OC Josh McDaniels and then visiting the organization on a top-30 visit in Foxboro. The Patriots, holding pick Nos. 23 and 31 in the first round, probably aren't going to have the desired firepower to move up to the top 10 of the draft, so they could be eyeing second-tier passers like Jackson and Mason Rudolph in the second half of the first round. Still, New England would probably have to come up some to take Jackson.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns "have cooled" on USC QB Sam Darnold "in recent days."

Many in the national media have pegged Darnold as the top choice for the Browns for much of the draft season, but word out of Cleveland is the Browns have "narrowed" it down to Baker Mayfield or Josh Allen at No. 1 overall. Darnold is widely considered the best overall passing prospect in this class, but the Browns front office has many Mayfield supporters, and the perceived upside of Allen is a big draw. If Cleveland passes on Darnold, teams will be scurrying to take him.

Sources tell the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot that the Browns are believed to be down to Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield or Wyoming QB Josh Allen with the No. 1 overall pick.

Per those sources, the Browns have "cooled" on USC QB Sam Darnold in recent days for whatever reason. This falls in line with what some around the Browns have been saying for about a week now, as radio host and ex-Browns DB Dustin Fox reported last week that Cleveland was down to Mayfield and Allen. NBC's Dan Patrick reported the same on Monday. For what it's worth, GM John Dorsey's righthand man Scot McCloughan has said for awhile that Mayfield is his No. 1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Dez Bryant is expected to wait until after this week's draft to sign with a team.

There's been little known interest in Bryant since his release from the Cowboys nearly two weeks ago. He's yet to make a visit, and there have been no concrete teams absolutely known to be involved in courting the 29-year-old. He's going to find it real tough to come close to the $12.5 million he was scheduled to earn in 2018 on his Dallas deal. We'll continue to wait.

Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman said Dalvin Cook (knee) has "knocked the rehab out of the park" in his return from a torn ACL.

"He'll participate in (OTAs and minicamp) on a limited basis," Sugarman said. "Then the plan is for him, hopefully when he gets to training camp, he’ll be a participant just like everybody else." It sounds like Cook is just about ready, but the team is going to bring him slowly through spring work with an eye toward having Cook ready to roll this summer. Cook is an RB1 heading into 2018.
Apr 24 - 8:34 PM

Rob Gronkowski announced in a Tuesday social media post that he will return for the 2018 season.

"I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats," Gronk posted on Instagram, under his @gronk handle. "I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great." The fact that Gronkowski met with coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday to inform him of his intentions confirms he was seriously considering stepping away. Although Gronk is still only 29 (next month), he has dealt with a litany of serious injuries during his eight seasons in the NFL. At this point, he should be considered a year-to-year proposition going forward, something to be mindful of in Dynasty leagues.

Speaking Tuesday, Saints coach Sean Payton said Cameron Meredith (ACL) could get in some work in June's minicamp.

Payton said the ex-Bear is "recovering well." Meredith went down at the end of last preseason. Any minicamp work would probably be cosmetic but would set Meredith up to be a full participant in training camp.
