"Several sources" tell CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora that the Patriots had considered a run at restricted free agent Victor Cruz before Cruz switched agents to Tom Condon on Monday.

Slapped with the first-round tender, acquiring Cruz would require teams to fork over a large long-term contract in addition to a first-round pick. The Pats apparently considered it nonetheless, but have a well-documented history of staying away from Condon's clients. Cruz presumably would have replaced Wes Welker in the slot. La Canfora believes there is still a possibility someone will make a run at Cruz, despite his costly restricted tender and contract demands.

The NFL has relaxed its celebration rules, permitting group celebrations, the use of the ball as a prop and celebrations on the ground.

Personal fouls for having fun are going the way of the dinosaur. The change is long overdue. Even baseball, the vanguard of tradition and unwritten rules, has never restricted celebrations. The NFL was positively 19th century in what it allowed after dramatic touchdowns and game-changing plays. Expect 2017 to be the year of the celebration GIF.

Jets OC John Morton said each quarterback will get equal reps with the first-team during OTAs.

That was not the case on the first day of OTAs when Christian Hackenberg worked exclusively on the second field with Josh McCown working with the first-team and Bryce Petty switching between the two. Hackenberg will certainly get his chance at some point, however, and Morton said all three have a "great opportunity."

Martavis Bryant says he added 10 pounds of muscle during his suspension.

Bryant said he last played at 215 pounds, but he is up to 225 now. May is the time of year for weight updates, but this one carries more...weight...because it shows Bryant was working diligently while he was away from the team. As well as the added mass, Bryant said the suspension and birth of his son have helped make him a different person, and he has "put the right people" around himself to succeed.

NFL owners passed a resolution which will allow two players to return from injured reserve each season.

Only one player had been allowed to return in the past. The owners also voted to shorten overtime from 15 minutes to 10 and eliminate the 75-man cutdown day which previously occurred after the third preseason game. Teams will now cut directly from their 90-man roster to their 53-man, "final" roster after the fourth preseason game, giving coaches more players to pull from in the meaningless preseason finale.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Cowboys are doing their "homework" on free agent ILB Daryl Washington.

Linebacker is not as big of a need as it has been in the past for the Cowboys, but Washington was a Pro Bowler before being suspended for three seasons. Dallas has also been ready and willing to take chances on players with baggage in recent years. This match makes some sense.

Cowboys DL David Irving is reportedly facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Irving was arguably the Cowboys' best lineman last season, notching four sacks and standing up well against the run in limited snaps. Dallas has added to their defensive line and will get DeMarcus Lawrence back at full health, but losing Irving would still be a blow. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Irving "has evidence" which could reverse the suspension on appeal, so this does not appear to be a done deal.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes sophomore C.J. Prosise will "have a big role" if he can stay healthy.

Kapadia wrote Prosise "will be featured in the passing game" and used "as a change-up" for Eddie Lacy, but it all depends on him staying on the field. Limited by injuries all offseason and knocked out by a shoulder injury late in the year, Prosise was only able to play in six games as a rookie. Of course, he was dynamic when on the field, averaging over eight yards per touch, and that type of playmaking ability will keep him on the fantasy radar in PPR formats even with Lacy operating as the lead back.

Giovani Bernard (ACL) is working to the side at the beginning of OTAs.

ESPN Bengals reporter Katherine Terrell reported Bernard would get in limited work during OTAs, but it looks like he will be relegated to the rehab field for now along with Tyler Eifert (back). Bernard still looks on track to return around Week 1.

Jets walk-year S Calvin Pryor was not spotted at the beginning of OTAs.

Pryor has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, and the Jets declined his fifth-year option after selecting two safeties with their first two picks in the draft. Pryor can certainly see the writing on the wall, and he may look to force the issue by holding out. That said, these workouts are voluntary.

Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is participating in OTAs.

He is sporting a non-contact jersey, but he did participate in team drills. Even getting on the field is a great sign considering some speculated Decker would not be ready for training camp following offseason surgeries to his hip and shoulder. As Decker himself said earlier this month, he should be fully ready for training camp.

Team president Bruce Allen said the Redskins would be willing to place the franchise tag on Kirk Cousins next offseason.

"Yes," Allen said when asked directly about tagging Cousins for the third year in a row. "We really have one year and an option that we can do at the end of next season if we don’t get a contract." Tagging a player three years in a row is intentionally cost prohibitive, and Cousins would be due $34 million if Washington tags him again next spring. The Redskins do have other options, including the transition tag ($28 million) and non-exclusive franchise tag which would both offer the right of first refusal if Cousins signs an offer sheet somewhere else. Of course, all of this madness could be avoided if Washington matches Cousins' contract demands by the July 15 deadline, but that is unlikely at this point.
