While the Eagles are interested, the Sideline View's Adam Caplan would not put Oregon's Chip Kelly at the top of their list as the clear No. 1 head coaching candidate.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher echoes the sentiment. "They have a lengthy list of candidates to interview," says Caplan, who has a better read on the Eagles than any NFL organization. In contrast, a high-ranking NFL official tells Caplan that the Browns' interest is "more than an infatuation" and hasn't "waned" one bit. Caplan has intimated for several days that Cleveland is the favorite to land Kelly, who confirmed after the Fiesta Bowl victory that he will "listen" to NFL offers.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) has been medically cleared for training camp.

Pouncey has battled a number of hip issues in his career and was sent to I.R. in Week 10 last season only to need another surgery. He's recovered nicely and appears to be ahead of schedule. Expect the Dolphins to continue to take it slow with their stud center, but he's fully expected to be out there when Week 1 rolls around.

Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official website expects Theo Riddick to be even more involved in the red zone this season.

Anquan Boldin, now a free agent, was third in the NFL with 22 red-zone targets last season, so there is a massive piece of the pie to be accounted for in Detroit. While Eric Ebron figures to see an uptick in scoring-area looks, Riddick also stands to gain quite a bit after catching all five of his touchdowns in the red zone last year. Detroit's running back situation is a tough one to figure out, but finding the guy who has the best chance to score touchdowns is a great place to start. Riddick is one of OC Jim Bob Cooter's favorite weapons near the end zone.

Ty Montgomery worked with Rischad Whitfield, better known as the Footwork King, during the break between minicamp and training camp.

Whitfield has become one of the best trainers of NFL running backs in recent years and was given a large portion of the credit for Melvin Gordon's sophomore surge last season. "I hope it pays off for me, too," Montgomery said. With Whitfield, Montgomery did "a lot of speed-ladder drills, a lot of change-of-direction drills, a lot of read-and-reaction drills." Montgomery is also up to 223 pounds, but it's lean muscle in the chest and shoulders area in an effort to take more of a pounding as a runner. Montgomery has incredible fantasy upside, especially in PPR formats.

According to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer, "there is talk around the locker room" that Jordan Matthews' (knee) issue is more serious than tendinitis.

"But there is talk elsewhere in the building that Matthews could have practiced more in the spring," Bowen writes, "that the real issue is his contract." All the Eagles have divulged on the situation is that they're limiting Matthews' reps in order to get him healthy in time for games. He missed most of the spring, and Matthews' name came up in trade rumors earlier in the offseason as he enters the final year of his contract. The Eagles have yet to approach Matthews about a new deal.

940 Miami's Andy Slater reports Dolphins LB Koa Misi (neck, I.R.) is retiring from the NFL after seven seasons.

Miami placed Misi on season-ending I.R. earlier Tuesday. He was trying to work his way back from spinal fusion surgery that limited him to three games last season. The 30-year-old was the 40th overall pick in 2010 and started 72 games for the Dolphins, recording 12 career sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. He could play both strong side and the MIKE spots and was above-average against the run.

Sammie Coates underwent a knee scope last week and will open training camp on the active/PUP list.

Scopes typically sideline players anywhere from 3-4 weeks, so Coates is going to miss a rather large chunk of camp if he's on the high end of that timetable. It's possible Coates misses the Steelers' preseason opener, though he should be fine well in time for the "dress rehearsal" in about a month. Coates is coming off a horrid sophomore season that was ruined by a finger issue and may even be competing for his job in Pittsburgh's receiving corps which added JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second round and Justin Hunter as a free agent.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon's meniscus injury required a full repair, and he will be out for the season.

Dixon was expected to need only a "trim," but a full repair was required upon closer inspection. It's a brutal blow for the 2016 fourth-rounder, who had a golden path to playing time once he returned from his four-game suspension in Week 5. It leaves the Ravens in a lurch, with only pass-catcher Danny Woodhead and fourth-year plodder Terrance West available as legitimate options. We suppose Buck Allen could also get another look. The Ravens could be forced to dip into the wafer-thin free agent market, which is currently "led" by Rashad Jennings and DeAngelo Williams. Still only 23, Dixon is worth stashing in Dynasty leagues, but he's now little more than a 50-50 proposition. Woodhead, who could seize goal-line work, is the preferred Ravens own, even in standard leagues.

Contract-year WR Allen Robinson says he's had extension talks with the Jaguars.

With Brandon Linder locked up, the Jags can turn their attention to their No. 1 receiver. It's an awkward time for Robinson, who is coming off a down season, but he's reasoning he still has plenty of leverage as a 24-year-old wideout (in August) just two years removed from a 1,400-yard season. If a deal doesn't get done this summer, the franchise tag looms for 2018. In a disaster scenario, A-Rob plays out his rookie deal and has another disappointing campaign, leaving him in Alshon Jeffery-esque limbo.

Jaguars signed G/C Brandon Linder to a five-year, $51.7 million extension through 2022.

It's one of the richest deals ever for a center. It includes $24 million guaranteed. It's actually been unclear if Linder would play center or guard in 2017, but the tea leaves have been suggesting the pivot, where Linder excelled in 2016. Linder played right guard in 2014-15. The No. 93 overall pick of the 2014 draft had been heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

Dolphins placed LB Koa Misi on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Just Tuesday, coach Adam Gase said he was "confident" Misi would "play football again," but it won't be for the Dolphins in 2017. If Misi does get healthy, he would have to be released with an injury settlement. Now 30, Misi played just three games last season before undergoing surgery. Things aren't looking bright for his NFL future. The Dolphins' top three linebackers are Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons and second-rounder Raekwon McMillan.

Saints placed WLB Dannell Ellerbe on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Ellerbe will be released with an injury settlement once he's healthy. He hopes to be cleared in three weeks. Headed into his age-32 campaign, Ellerbe's recent career has been wrecked by injury. He's made just 16 appearances since 2013. His phone isn't going to be ringing off the hook, despite what his agent is telling some media members.
