According to Sports Illustrated, Oregon's Chip Kelly will be looking for "near complete control when it comes to personnel decision-making power" if he's to make the jump to the NFL.

SI's Don Banks believes that could make Kelly a no-go for the Eagles, who are expected to make a big push for the Ducks' innovative offensive mind. According to Banks, Kelly could also be a possibility for the Panthers. With only an interim GM in place in Carolina, Kelly could likely get the "complete control" he's seeking if coach Ron Rivera is dismissed. Kelly's addition would be an exciting one for Cam Newton.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Bills RB Jonathan Williams will not face league discipline after being found not guilty in his 2016 DUI case.

Williams was arrested in Arkansas a year ago, but he was found not guilty earlier this month. With both the legal and league issues behind him, Williams can focus on winning the No. 2 job behind LeSean McCoy. Mike Gillislee rode that role to 627 total yards and nine touchdowns last season.

A source "very close" to Mike Pouncey (hip) told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald the center will be ready for Week 1 "barring an unexpected setback."

The news around Pouncey has been mostly positive over the last month, with coach Adam Gase saying he is "on a really, really good track." Still, it would not be surprising if the center misses a large chunk of training camp and the entire preseason as the Dolphins do whatever they can to keep Pouncey healthy for 16 games. If that does not happen, Miami will likely turn to Kraig Urbik, but they also contacted free agent Nick Mangold earlier this offseason.

Jamaal Charles said he is "doing everything" including "cutting" on his surgically-repaired knees.

"I feel like the way I am cutting that I am back to the normal me," Charles said. "I am still 30 years old. I still have a lot of special stuff to do." Charles was held out of team drills during minicamp, but it looks like he is going to be close to if not at full health when training camp begins in about a month. It is unclear how much he has left in the tank after losing essentially two seasons to knee injuries, but he should push C.J. Anderson if he is healthy.

NFL suspended Cowboys DT David Irving four games for violating the league's PEDs policy.

It was announced last month that Irving was facing the ban, and it's now official. Irving played 530 snaps for the Cowboys last season, receiving really strong marks for his pass rush and above-average grades from Pro Football Focus for his run defense. A mammoth man at 6'7/285, Irving single-handedly dominated a handful of games last season, winning DPOW honors in Week 6 and then wrecking the Bucs in Week 15. It's a big blow to an already-undermanned defensive line.

Retired ILB Zachary Orr announced on Wednesday that he's contemplating a comeback.

Orr retired back in January after being diagnosed with a neck condition. The 25-year-old was said to be nearing an extension with the Ravens shortly before he was suddenly forced to retire. We're not sure what has changed medically with his situation, but Orr is determined to "play ball" this season. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora doesn't expect the Ravens to take the gamble on Orr's neck and bring him back. Getting cleared by a team will be Orr's biggest obstacle.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler believes Jamison Crowder "definitely" will be targeted more than Terrelle Pryor.

Answering a question about if Pryor will lead the team in receiving yards, Tandler said "chances are that one of the holdovers," namely Crowder or Jordan Reed, will take the honor. Pryor could lead the team in yardage even if Crowder sees more targets because of his downfield usage, but the big takeaway here is Crowder will have a large role in a quality passing attack. A real threat to top 100 catches, Crowder is a great pick at his current fifth-round ADP in PPR formats.

Cam Newton said he has realized he does not have to "always be the playmaker."

"I have to give other people opportunities to make plays," Newton said in an insightful piece (linked below) about his growth. "That's the hardest thing about maturation, especially for me." With new weapons in rookies Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel, Newton realizes he needs to change the way he plays and focus on "getting the ball out of my hands" in an offense which should rely more on quick passes moving forward. He also is taking better care of his body, staying away from sweets and dropping to "hands down" his lowest offseason weight despite being sidelined with a shoulder injury. Coming off one of his worst seasons in the NFL, Newton looks to be headed for a bounce back if his health cooperates.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams will not reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson before the July 17 deadline.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the same a week ago, and it does not look like anything has changed. Unable to sign Johnson to a long-term deal after tagging him last year, it would have been difficult for the Rams to handle this situation any worse, and it now looks like Johnson will head to free agency next spring having earned $31 million over two seasons.

ESPN's Adam Cousins reports a long-term deal between the Redskins and franchise-tagged Kirk Cousins "is considered a long shot for the time being."

NFL Network analyst and former GM Charley Casserly agrees, saying he does not "see any way" the two sides reach a long-term deal. There was some optimism about a new deal earlier this month -- Schefter does say there is "an improved tone between the two sides" -- but it seems like the July 17 deadline will pass without an agreement. Cousins is scheduled to make $23.94 million on the one-year franchise tender.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman said the organization "believes" in Michael Floyd, and he will remain on the club's roster and report for training camp.

Floyd boneheadedly consumed alcohol just days before his house arrest sentence was set to expire earlier this month, and he was sentenced to one day in jail in Arizona on Monday. He got off extremely light and will keep his job at the same time. Floyd won't be guaranteed to make the final 53-man roster out of camp and is certainly facing a league-mandated suspension from Roger Goodell.

Vikings WR Michael Floyd has been sentenced to one day in jail for violating the terms of his house arrest.

Floyd, who isn't allowed to drink alcohol as part of his house arrest arrangement, allegedly failed five different tests. He absurdly blamed the failures on Kombucha tea. The judge wasn't having it. Floyd is lucky to escape with only a day in jail. It's unclear how safe his Vikings' roster spot is. Floyd was signed just 47 days ago.
