Adrian Peterson (sports hernia surgery) is expected to be ready for the entire offseason program.

Remember that Greg Jennings underwent a similar procedure performed by the same doctor and missed just one month. Peterson's status as fantasy's clear-cut No. 1 player for 2013 has not been affected by his surgery.

Suspended DE Dion Jordan plans to apply for reinstatement to the NFL on Wednesday.

Jordan's indefinite suspension was handed down last April due to multiple failed drug tests. He's been rarely heard from since, but broke his silence this week in an interview with USA Today. "I’m not about to waste it," said Jordan, referring to his NFL career. "I can’t waste it. And I (expletive) love doing it." Jordan turned 26 in May. He was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft.

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo reports No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz "seems to" have a better handle of the playbook than Sam Bradford.

Both players are attempting to master new coach Doug Pederson's offense, and Bradford appears to be behind after pouting for two weeks following the draft. The veteran should catch up, but it looks like Wentz is having no trouble adjusting to an NFL offense. Pederson has said all along he would like to let his rookie develop behind a veteran before thrusting him into the limelight, but it remains extremely likely Wentz makes starts this season.

Broncos.com's Andrew Mason describes the team's quarterback job as a "wide open" competition.

Mason cautioned to not "assume" Mark Sanchez will be named the Broncos' Week 1 starter, and doesn't anticipate coach Gary Kubiak making any announcements until the preseason is underway. Kubiak plans to "spread the reps around," giving Sanchez, Paxton Lynch, and Trevor Siemian equally long looks. "When he says it's going to be an open competition, he means it," Mason said of Kubiak. "Don't assume anything." With Sanchez (thumb surgery) sitting out OTAs, Lynch and Siemian are seeing expanded practice work.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the Jets' contract proposal to free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick is worth $24 million over three years.

A New York Post report late last week stated the Jets offered Fitzpatrick $12 million in year one of the offer, but Robinson reports the final two years are only worth an average of $6 million annually. Robinson characterizes it as "starter money" in year one, then "elite backup" pay in years two and three. Fitzpatrick presumably wants to be paid "starter money" in all three years. Although we still anticipate the Jets and Fitzpatrick meeting somewhere in the middle, at present the sides remain in a holding pattern without a resolution in sight.

Jameis Winston weighed in the "upper 240s" at the Pro Bowl, but has shed 18 pounds in an effort to "avoid the dreaded sophomore slump."

Trainer/nutritionist Tim Grover encouraged Winston to eat more protein at night and scale back his consumption of potato chips, which Winston now eats at lunch instead of dinner. Winston is back near his Combine weight of 231, with a goal of shedding around five more pounds to get into the 225-229 range. "He is a worker, he's a gym rat," said Grover after working out with Winston. "He's constantly watching film." Coming out of Florida State, Winston was seen as an off-field character risk after making some immature decisions in college. From all indications as a pro, Winston has a good head on his shoulders and is primed for year-two improvement with Vincent Jackson, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Kenny Bell back healthy, and Mike Evans poised for a third-year jump.

Kirk Cousins thinks first-round WR Josh Doctson can be "a great weapon in the red zone."

Doctson might not beat out Pierre Garcon for a starting job by Week 1, but he has the size and ball skills to be an immediate threat in the red zone. "Looks like he can make the contested catch. It’s very natural for him to go up and catch that type of pass," Cousins said. "He can run well. He has got great size. I almost thought he was a tight end when he showed up because of his size." If DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed can stay healthy, Cousins should have no shortage of weapons to target this season.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt said "the plan" is for DeMarco Murray to handle "the bulk of the carries."

Coach Mike Mularkey said as much right after the Titans spent a second-round pick on Derrick Henry. While that could be the plan right now, Henry will certainly get his opportunities and could end up stealing work if Murray looks as sluggish and spent as he did last year in Philadelphia. For what it is worth, Wyatt says Murray has "been impressive so far."

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia does not believe Marshawn Lynch will return to the Seahawks even if he decides to unretire.

Speculation about Lynch deciding to unhang his cleats has picked up in the last couple weeks, but Kapadia does not think Seattle will welcome him back with open arms. Owed $9 million if he decides to play, Lynch will have to agree to a big pay cut to return. The Seahawks also spent three draft picks on running backs and have Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael returning after effective seasons. If Lynch does decide to come back, it will likely be for another team.

The New York Post reports the Jets have a standing three-year offer for free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The proposal has a $12 million salary in the first year, and has "been on the table for four months." It sounds like it's going to take a higher base or more money on the back end to get something done. Despite a lack of movement between the sides, the Jets remain likely to get Fitzpatrick signed before training camp. Fitzpatrick has made clear his desire to stay with Gang Green.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the "hope" remains that Thomas Rawls (ankle) is ready for Week 1.

The same is true for Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon). The Seahawks haven't really offered anything new on Rawls in recent months, but it remains notable that they can't guarantee his Week 1 status. Rawls offers mammoth upside as a potential workhorse in a run-heavy offense, but his health is a major question mark. Third-rounder C.J. Prosise and Christine Michael are the next men up.

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones says the team isn't interested in trading Darren McFadden or Alfred Morris.

"We got calls during the draft asking to trade for a couple of our running backs, and we just don’t have that interest," Jones said. There's little urgency for the Cowboys to unload McFadden or Morris right now, but that could change if Ezekiel Elliott tears up camp and the preseason, as is likely. DMC offers passing-game insurance behind rehabbing Lance Dunbar (ACL) that Morris has never provided. If either player were to be traded, it would be for a conditional late-rounder.
