Saints agreed in principle on a five-year contract with head coach Sean Payton.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the extension is similar to the one signed by Payton and the Saints in September of 2011. That extension was good through 2015, although it was later voided due to Payton's bounty suspension. The new deal is good through 2017 and will become official once Sean Payton's suspension formally ends after Super Bowl XLVII. Payton has a 62-34 record in six seasons as Saints head coach, including a Super Bowl victory. The new deal ensures that Payton will not flirt with the Dallas Cowboys, who were believed to have at least some interest in him if they missed the playoffs under Jason Garrett. Payton's extension in New Orleans is good news for Saints skill-position players. He's perhaps the premier offensive schemer and game-day playcaller in all the NFL.

Raiders exercised OLB Khalil Mack's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The perfunctory move keeps Mack under contract for the next two years and buys time in long-term talks. GM Reggie McKenzie has already admitted the obvious that he wants to extend Mack, but with Derek Carr and OG Gabe Jackson's rookie contracts both expiring next offseason, they figure to be the priorities.

The Patriots are playing in the official opening game of the season on Thursday Sept. 7, though their opponent has yet to be revealed. It's believed to be the Chiefs.

Bills OT Cyrus Kouandjio had a Tuesday run-in with police where he was not arrested.

Skipping voluntary workouts, Kouandjio was found "not fully clothed" in a field after "climbing over an electric fence." When approached by police, Kouandjio yelled "shoot me!" Clearly, he was not in his right mind. He was held for observation then released without incident. Recovering from surgery after a bizarre January accident in his home, Kouandjio is the Bills' swing tackle/potential right tackle.

Giants GM Jerry Reese said he "probably looked at more quarterbacks" this year leading up to the draft.

It is not a surprise considering Eli Manning's age (36) and level of play last season. The Giants may not be in the market for one of the top quarterbacks at No. 23 overall, but it will not be surprising if they invest a Day-2 pick on a "quarterback of the future." Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer or Pitt's Nathan Peterman could fit the bill if they fall.

NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein reports there is "buzz" Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey will be the only running backs selected in the first round.

That would mean Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara, and Joe Mixon all falling out of the first round. Kamara has production questions and Mixon has serious off-field concerns, so it will not be a surprise if they fall. However, Cook lasting until the second day would be a shock. Zierlein writes Cook is "clearly a first-rounder based on talent alone," but some teams have "concerns surrounding durability and character" while others are worried about his testing numbers. Cook tested as a ninth-percentile SPARQ athlete at the Combine.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said the team plans to pick up LT Jake Matthews' fifth-year option.

Atlanta has until May 3 to do so officially. After they pick up the option, the focus will turn to working out a long-term extension, but Dimitroff said that is on the back burner for now. The No. 6 overall pick in 2014, Matthews has started all but one game through three seasons.

10-of-16 NFL executives polled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel ranked LSU RB Leonard Fournette as this year's top running back.

The Journal-Sentinel uses a "points" system to rank draft-eligible backs based on poll results from the executives' rankings. Fournette was the clear-cut No. 1 with 10-of-16 first-place votes and 73 total "points." Dalvin Cook came in second with four first-place votes and 61 points. Christian McCaffrey was third with one first-place vote and 47 points. Joe Mixon garnered the final first-place vote, finishing fourth. Alvin Kamara (fifth), D'Onta Foreman (sixth), Kareem Hunt (seventh), and Samaje Perine (eighth) rounded out the top eight.

In a poll done by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 6-of-11 NFL personnel executives said they wouldn't draft Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon "under any circumstances."

3-of-11 execs said they would take Mixon, and two did not reply. Of the three willing Mixon drafters, one executive said he would select Mixon in the first round, and the other two would consider Mixon in the third. Three executives quoted by the Journal-Sentinel said whether Mixon would be considered draftable by teams would be decided by those teams' owners. In another Journal-Sentinel poll, NFL executives were asked to rank this year's running back class. Mixon came in fourth, behind Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, and Christian McCaffrey.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Bills will meet with Clemson QB Deshaun Watson on Friday.

Teams meet with a lot of players, and those meetings usually mean little. Still, this particular meeting is interesting considering Buffalo's uncertain future at quarterback and recent reports saying they are a "wild card" to draft Watson with the No. 10 overall pick. If teams are interested in grabbing "their quarterback," Buffalo might be the team they need to jump in the first round.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports walk-year WR Jarvis Landry and the Dolphins "have not begun serious talks on an extension."

The Dolphins have told Landry they want to keep him, but they have not even indicated when they will begin to discuss a new deal. Despite the uncertainty, Landry showed up for the start of the offseason program this week and reportedly "has no intention of holding out." The receiver is set to earn just under $900,000 in the final year of his rookie deal.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Raiders are "willing to walk away from a potential deal" with Marshawn Lynch.

This suggests the Raiders are only willing to sign Lynch on their terms and could help explain why the comeback has hit a snare. On the positive side, Breer reports the meeting between the two sides went well and the Raiders "were impressed with the shape [Lynch is] in." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested the draft is the deadline for something to happen, so we should know Lynch's fate within the next week.
