The Canton Repository reports the Browns want to wrap up their coaching search by Sunday night.

The Repository's belief is that the final decision will come down ex-Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt versus Bengals DC Mike Zimmer, with Colts OC Bruce Arians "still in the picture." Zimmer is expected to have a second interview on Friday. Per the Plain Dealer, the Browns "still really like" OC Rob Chudzinski as well. The Repository also reports that former Chiefs director of pro personnel Ray Farmer will interview for the GM position on Friday, and NFL Network's Michael Lombardi "is in the Browns' fold, with only his title to be determined." Farmer and Lombardi worked together with the Eagles in the late 1990s.

Missouri edge rusher Shane Ray was arrested Monday morning for possession of marijuana in Cooper County, Mo.

What a bonehead move by Ray, who was later released from county jail. His stock was already crashing some because of a foot/toe issue that may require surgery and force him to miss rookie minicamp. Early in the pre-draft process, Ray was talked about as a possible top-three pick. Now, he may find himself lasting until day two. Ray (6'3/249) has a high motor but lacks ideal athleticism.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns "covet" Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

Rapoport reported earlier this evening that the Browns were exploring a trade into the top 10 and have talked with the Redskins about a move to No. 5 overall. That's unlikely to land Cleveland Mariota, who will likely be a top-two pick, and at the very least come off the board at No. 3 overall where the Jaguars would probably love to trade back. The Browns have ammo at their disposal.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns have had conversations with the Redskins about trading into the top five.

Cleveland sits at Nos. 12 and 19 in the first round, while Washington has the No. 5 overall pick. We suspect the Browns would be targeting a wide receiver, perhaps West Virginia's Kevin White. Per RapSheet, the Browns have "touched base with most teams" selecting in the top-ten picks. Cleveland is not one player away from contention, but this isn't an organization that has made many sensible moves since Jimmy Haslam took over as owner. Nothing can be ruled out.

Appearing on Sirius NFL Radio, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said he believes there's an "80 percent" chance Adrian Peterson remains with the Vikings.

Mort did call Arizona an "interesting" potential landing spot. Based on a combination of recent national-media reports, it sounds like Peterson could end up with the Cardinals if Vikings GM Rick Spielman lowers his asking price to a mid to late second-round pick. If Spielman stays the course and demands a first-rounder in Peterson negotiations, A.D. will likely be staying in Minnesota.

The Tennessean does not expect the Titans to select USC DT Leonard Williams at No. 2 overall.

Beat reporter Jim Wyatt says the Titans would pass on a player many consider the draft's top prospect because they have "bigger needs." That's certainly true, although drafting for need is what GMs who are trying to save their job do. Wyatt added that if the Titans don't trade out of the No. 2 hole and don't take Marcus Mariota, he thinks they'll take Alabama WR Amari Cooper.

Antonio Brown reported to the Steelers facility Monday and is participating in voluntary workouts.

Brown didn't show up as the offseason program opened last week, sparking reports that he wants a new contract and was mulling a holdout. If that were true, Brown has apparently reconsidered digging his heels in. He likely knew he had little leverage as he's just three years into a six-year, $43 million deal. The Steelers have a staunch history of not renegotiating deals with more than one year left, even for players like Brown that led the NFL in both receptions and receiving yards last year. Agent Drew Rosenhaus will continue to try to get his client more money, but it's simply not going to happen.

The Redskins will pick up Robert Griffin III's $16.1 million 2016 option.

It's not a huge deal as the option is only guaranteed for injury. If the Redskins want to cut ties with Griffin after this season and avoid paying him that $16M, they can do so (as long as he's not hurt). RG3's career was always going to be at a crossroads this season regardless of the option, as he must prove he can sustain health and be a fundamentally sound NFL quarterback in Year 4. His own coach, Jay Gruden, appeared very skeptical of that last year.

Citing six "high-level NFL sources," Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the Cowboys and Cardinals are not willing to pay the price the Vikings have demanded to trade Adrian Peterson.

"Dallas has not even spoken to Minnesota regarding Peterson," Robinson writes, while Arizona is unwilling to surrender its first-round pick. Peterson-to-the-Cardinals reportedly could be a done deal were Vikings GM Rick Spielman willing to trade A.P. for a mid-to-late second-round pick, but that is currently not happening. Robinson speculates that the Buccaneers and Jaguars are sleepers to acquire Peterson, perhaps in exchange for a top-40 pick. According to Robinson, Spielman's "feet are in cement," he "wants Peterson in a Vikings uniform," and "it's going to take a sledgehammer to remove him from that spot."

"Multiple sources" tell the Miami Herald that the Dolphins "covet" Georgia RB Todd Gurley, and "would love" for Gurley to fall to them at No. 14.

No. 14 would be considered a "fall" for Gurley, who is now seen as a probable top-ten pick. Many NFL evaluators view Gurley as one of the best all-around players in an otherwise weak 2015 draft class. The Herald spoke to Miami Heat team physician Harlan Selesnick, who said the risk of an ACL re-tear is just two percent for pro athletes. "The success rate in terms of stability is really quite good," Selesnick stated. "You don’t see a lot of guys having a repeat ACL surgery. You can usually feel comfortable taking one of those players."

ESPN's Mark Dominik is "certain" Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will go 1-2 in this week's NFL draft.

Dominik also believes UCLA's Brett Hundley "should" go in the first round, but that's just his opinion. Dominik was an NFL general manager as recently as the 2013 season and likely still has close ties to many personnel people around the league. It would be a shock if Winston and Mariota weren't selected at Nos. 1 and 2 overall, although not necessarily in that order.

According to the Tampa Tribune, the Buccaneers have met or spoken with "upwards of 75 people" with ties to Florida State QB Jameis Winston throughout the draft process.

They want to know if Winston's off-field transgressions were "the work of a bad person or simply an immature one." The Bucs conducted a similar investigation with Justin Blackmon a few years back, staking him out at a local bar to see how many times he would attend throughout the week. Buccaneers officials spoke with the Tallahassee State Attorney's Office about an FSU student who received "counseling services" after a sexual encounter with Winston. According to the Attorney's Office, the student did not press charges and "doesn't even consider herself a victim." We'll know Thursday if Winston's baggage is too much for the Buccaneers to handle.
