Cardinals hired Todd Bowles as defensive coordinator.

The hiring is largely a formality, as the Cardinals were widely expected to bring in Bowles following the release of Ray Horton. Bowles has experience with multiple defensive schemes from his time in Miami (2008-11) and Philadelphia (2012), but this is his first non-interim coordinator job. After last year's mess in Philly, Bowles is coming into a much better situation in Arizona.

ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold believes fourth-round RB Devontae Booker will "push for playing time."

Despite matching the Dolphins' four-year, $18 million offer sheet for C.J. Anderson, the Broncos have re-signed Ronnie Hillman and spent a fourth-round pick on Booker, a player GM John Elway confirmed was their second-highest graded running back. Denver has never committed to Anderson as the lead back, and they have now brought in quality competition in Booker. Despite his upside, Anderson will be difficult to trust as an RB1.

Bears released OG Matt Slauson.

Slauson was owed just under $3 million this season. The move is surprising after Slauson finished No. 18 in Pro Football Focus' 2015 guard ratings, with a top-ten rank in pass protection. He allowed one sack in 16 starts, and just turned 30 in February. While the Bears are moving on with second-round pick Cody Whitehair at left guard, a good guard just hit the free agent market.

Bears released S Antrel Rolle.

Rolle, 33, lasted one season in Chicago, but appeared in just seven games for the Bears due to an ankle injury and sprained MCL. He was merely average when on the field for DC Vic Fangio. The Bears will move forward with second-year FS Adrian Amos and either fourth-round rookie SS Deon Bush or free-agent signee Omar Bolden. Rolle's release saves the Bears $2.7 million in camp room.

Browns EVP of football operations Sashi Brown claims third-round QB Cody Kessler will get a chance to start.

"It's a competition," Brown said. "We'll let it play out." Although both Brown and coach Hue Jackson are openly smitten with Kessler, consider us deeply skeptical that he'll get a legitimate chance to start as a rookie. Kessler is essentially a prototype game manager. He needs time to get up to NFL speed, and is best suited for clipboard duties in 2016, at least to begin the year. It will be a different story if Robert Griffin III hasn't made major strides on his final days in Washington.

Seahawks signed TCU QB Trevone Boykin.

Boykin (6'0/212) made 40 starts for the Horned Frogs, finishing his career as TCU's all-time leader in passing yards (10,728) and passing TDs (86) with a 61.2 completion percentage. He added 27 rushing scores and averaged 4.04 yards per carry. Boykin was a dynamic dual-threat college quarterback, but he is short, struggles with touch as a passer and was arrested for felony assault of an officer last December. Although Boykin was open to performing wide receiver drills before the draft, he lacks speed (4.77) and explosion (9'2" broad jump) for a full-time position switch. Boykin would do well to forge a Seneca Wallace-type career.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson says he's yet to have contact with Sam Bradford since the quarterbacks' trade request.

Pouting Sam remains inconsolable, even after the Broncos' selection of Payton Lynch took them off the board of potential suitors. The reality is, Bradford has nowhere to go, and will be in Philadelphia competing with Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel this season. The sooner he realizes that, the better. The Eagles could have handled the situation better, but Bradford is well compensated. This is life in the NFL for mediocre quarterbacks.

Bears signed QB Brian Hoyer to a one-year, $2 million contract.

It's an awful landing spot for Hoyer, as he'll only come into playing time if Jay Cutler gets hurt. Of course, Cutler has been rather injury prone in his career, so there's a decent chance Hoyer makes 2016 starts. It's simply surprising he ended up somewhere where there won't be a competition. Hoyer's market must have been really depressed. Hoyer is one of the league's better backups, but typically gets exposed after 5-6 starts.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said contract negotiations with contract-year QB Andrew Luck are "progressing well."

"It's a complicated contract," Irsay said. "It's one that has to work both ways to make sure we're able to field a great football team." Irsay has mentioned the Fourth of July as a soft deadline, and he still sees that as a reasonable goal. It would be an absolute shock if Luck did not have a new deal before training camp.

Titans selected Southern Miss CB Kalan Reed with the No. 253 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Reed (5'11/192) started three-plus years at Southern Miss, logging eight career interceptions and breaking a single-season school record for pass breakups (19) as a senior. A surprising Combine sub, Reed blazed 4.49 with a 41 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump at the Golden Eagles' Pro Day. Experienced in both zone and man coverage, Reed was slept on during the pre-draft phase but has NFL-starter-level traits. Reed offers more NFL potential than the usual Mr. Irrelevant.

Browns acquired CB Jamar Taylor and the No. 250 overall pick in the 2016 draft from the Dolphins in exchange for the No. 223 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Taylor was the 54th overall pick in the 2013 draft, but has been a big part of the problem on the back end of Miami's defense the past couple seasons. He's started nine games the past two years, but was Pro Football Focus' fifth-worst cover corner out of 118 qualifiers last season. In Cleveland, he'll get a fresh start and compete for a sub-package and special teams role.

Giants selected UCLA RB Paul Perkins with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Perkins (5'10/208) spent two years as the Bruins' feature back before turning pro, parlaying 622 carries into 3,491 yards (5.61 YPC) and 29 touchdowns, adding 80 receptions. His Combine metrics were solid-if-unspectacular, running 4.54 with a 32-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. A fundamentally-sound three-down back, Perkins combines darting quickness with exciting lateral moves and is an ultra-competitive, tough inside runner. A Devonta Freeman clone, Perkins is good enough to capitalize if given an extended NFL opportunity. New York is an excellent landing spot for Perkins to earn early-career chances in one of the league's most underwhelming running back corps.
