Browns hired Ray Horton as defensive coordinator.

Media types are skeptical of the Browns' hire of Mike Lombardi to run the personnel side, but they've cobbled together an impressive top end of the coaching staff. Horton and Norv Turner will be the coordinators, with Rob Chudzinski as head coach. Horton, a Dick LeBeau disciple, runs a 3-4 defense and will implement scheme change in Cleveland. Horton coordinated the Cardinals' defense the past two seasons. Although Arizona generally struggled versus the run in 2012, it fielded a top-12 overall defense and ranked top-five against the pass.

Falcons exercised LT Jake Matthews' fifth-year team option for 2018.

GM Thomas Dimitroff said they would last week, and now it is official. Matthews is now under contract through 2018, but the Falcons could look to work out a long-term extension this summer. Matthews has started all but one game since being selected with the No. 6 overall pick in 2014.

ESPN's Todd McShay has heard the Panthers could select Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey with the No. 8 overall pick "even if LSU's Leonard Fournette is still on the board."

McShay notes McCaffrey could help fill the Panthers' need at running back as well as slot receiver, and current WRs coach Lance Taylor was McCaffrey's position coach in college. Either way, it is clear the Panthers are seriously considering adding a running back in the first round, and they seem certain to add a rusher early in the draft. Jonathan Stewart's days as the clear lead back seem to be at an end.

ESPN's Todd McShay said the Cardinals and Chiefs "continue to come up in conversations" about Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes.

Arizona has the No. 13 pick while Kansas City owns the No. 27 selection in the first round. The Cardinals should have a chance to grab Mahomes at their draft slot if they believe he can be the eventual successor for Carson Palmer, but McShay does not think the Texas Tech product will still be on the board when the Chiefs' turn comes around. Mahomes should be the third quarterback selected behind North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson.

ESPN's Todd McShay reports the Bucs "really like" Florida State RB Dalvin Cook.

McShay adds they will "strongly consider" Cook if he is still on the board at No. 19. There have been rumors Cook will fall to the second day of the draft because of off-field and testing concerns, but the Bucs have always seemed like a likely destination for the Florida-born product. Drafting Cook would likely spell the end for Doug Martin in Tampa.

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia does not think the Bills want to select a quarterback with the No. 10 overall pick.

Buffalo has been consistently linked with Clemson's Deshaun Watson and UNC's Mitchell Trubisky throughout the pre-draft process, but Buscaglia is not buying it. The Bills have several needs throughout the roster and Tyrod Taylor under contract for two more years, but they do not seem to be completely sold on Taylor or 2016 fourth-rounder Cardale Jones as the long-term answer. Even if they do not spend a first-round pick on a quarterback, the Bills will likely address the position at some point in the draft.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bengals want a first-round pick "at least" for A.J. McCarron.

In other words, the Bengals do not want to trade A.J. McCarron. Scheduled to be a restricted free agent (pending arbitration) after this season, McCarron is under cheap team control for the next two years, so the Bengals have zero incentive to move him for anything less than their price. He will sit behind Andy Dalton for at least another season.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch are "still talking."

Schneider also reiterated the draft deadline Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie set for a deal last week. "I would think Reggie would want to go into the draft knowing that they have another runner or not," Schneider said. The Raiders reportedly want to pay Lynch $3 million a year while the running back is looking for closer to $5 million. A compromise near the $3.5 million Adrian Peterson will get from the Saints could work for both sides, but it needs to happen quickly.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media reports the Eagles are "very interested" in Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon.

The report came on the same day Jets GM Mike Maccagnan made it clear his team is not interested in taking Mixon because of his off-field past, highlighting the disparity of opinion throughout the league. Mixon only needs one team to take the plunge, however, and it is possible the Eagles are that organization. The running back has also been linked with the Vikings, Bengals, and Raiders.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is "mutual interest" between the Giants and free agent RB LeGarrette Blount.

With Mike Gillislee now in New England, Blount is on the lookout for a new team. The Giants make sense as they need a bigger complement to Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen, and Blount will not cost much money. That said, New York may want to wait to see who falls to them in the draft before turning to Blount. The 30-year-old rushed for 18 touchdowns last season.

Saints signed Adrian Peterson to a two-year, $7-million contract.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the deal is essentially a one-year deal with an option for a second. While Peterson is not expected to be the nominal "starter" in New Orleans, he should see opportunities if he is healthy and effective. Tim Hightower touched the ball 155 times last season, and that was with Mark Ingram playing 16 games for only the second time in his career. Peterson likely will get even more work, making him at worst a top-35 back with the upside for more.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said the team still does not know if suspended WR Martavis Bryant will be reinstated.

"We have no information. We have no idea if we’ll get information (before the draft) or not," Colbert said Monday. "We have to operate under the assumption that, until he is here, he is not here." Bryant has widely been expected to gain reinstatement, but Colbert is clearly not taking that for granted. Whether that means the Steelers are just being prudent or have been given a heads up remains to be seen. Either way, it will not be surprising if Pittsburgh invests an early-round pick on a pass catcher this week.
