Former Chiefs and Broncos WR Ashley Lelie retired from football.

Lelie has accepted a quality control coach position at the University of Nevada. The 19th overall pick in the 2002 draft, Lelie lasted seven seasons in the NFL. His best two came in 2004 and 2005 in Mike Shanahan's Denver offenses, when Lelie led the league in yards per reception both years. His career ends with 217 catches, 3,749 yards, and 15 touchdowns. Lelie never made a Pro Bowl.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette believes second-year WR Sammie Coates will be the main beneficiary of Martavis Bryant's year-long ban.

Never prone to hyperbole, the venerable Bouchette has been "told" Coates "worked out like crazy" this offseason, is in "great shape," and "the coaches keep talking him up." A repeat of Bryant's numbers is highly unlikely for Coates, but he has a wide catching radius and dynamic athletic ability at 6-foot-1, 212 with 4.41 wheels. He's an intriguing late-round dart throw in best-ball MFL10s.

Kevin White says he's felt 100 percent "for months" after missing his entire rookie season with a stress fracture in his shin.

Per the Chicago Sun Times, White "drove hard on his cuts" at OTAs and took part in both individual and team drills. "I'm back to normal," said White. "I'm really not focused on the leg too much." White added that he's spending extended offseason time with Jay Cutler in an effort to build off-field chemistry that might translate onto the field. Bears WRs coach Curtis Johnson recently compared White's skill set to that of Andre Johnson, whom Curtis coached at The U.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner expects Brandon LaFell to start over rookie Tyler Boyd this season.

This could change if Boyd has a big training camp, but for now LaFell is running with the ones and in the driver's seat to replace Marvin Jones opposite A.J. Green. A second-round pick out of Pitt, Boyd is a finesse receiver with limited run-after-catch skills whose fit in the slot is questionable. The Bengals have a boatload of unaccounted-for targets after losing Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency, and Tyler Eifert to offseason ankle surgery.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia does not believe Thomas Rawls (ankle) will play in the preseason.

The Seahawks have been tight-lipped about Rawls' recovery from a broken ankle, but they have consistently targeted Week 1 for his return. That suggests he will not see any work in the preseason, and he could be extremely limited deep into training camp. Rawls has RB1 upside, but this injury makes him a very risky pick. Christine Michael and C.J. Prosise could have larger than expected roles.

Ryan Tannehill said "the sky is the limit" for sophomore WR DeVante Parker.

"I think you saw, the last six to eight games of the year, his confidence start to build," Tannehill said. "He's starting at that point now. We can build from where he is at now, and the sky is the limit for him." This is the second time Tannehill has talked up his second-year receiver in as many weeks. Even though the receiver corps is deep with talent, Parker should play a huge role this year.

Free agent S/CB Walter Thurmond is retiring after six seasons in the NFL.

The Philadelphia Daily News' Les Bowen reported this was a possibility in March. Thurmond is only 28 and coming off his best and healthiest season as a pro after switching to safety for the Eagles last year. With an injury history as long as anyone, it is possible Thurmond decided to call it quits rather than risking his health on another short-term deal. It would not be surprising if he changes his mind next spring. Thurmond finishes his career with 160 tackles, three sacks and four interceptions in 52 appearances.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the NFL will move the Pro Bowl to Orlando in 2017.

A press conference to announce a multi-year deal to play the game in central Florida will be held Wednesday. Rather than changing the format to make the game more enticing to fans and players alike, the NFL is hoping another move -- the game was hosted in Miami in 2009 and Glendale in 2014 -- will spur interest. Aside from 2009 and 2014, the game has been hosted at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu every year since 1979.

The Jets' three-year offer to free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick is reportedly worth up to $36 million.

The base value of the deal is $24 million with $12 million in the first year and over $15 million guaranteed. While the $12 million in available incentives makes the deal look more reasonable, The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta called them "fugazi incentives," indicating there is little chance they would ever be reached. A one-year deal with an option for 2017 could be the compromise both sides are waiting for, but this saga looks destined to drag out well into the summer.

The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer reports it is a "near certainty" Alshon Jeffery plays out 2016 under the terms of the franchise tag.

GM Ryan Pace has called contract talks "cordial" and "productive," but Wiederer's sources say "there are no indications" the Bears will push for a long-term deal this summer. The move makes sense for Chicago. Jeffery has had conditioning questions in the past and struggled through an injury-riddled campaign last season. He is also skipping voluntary work this year despite signing his franchise tag in early March. With no idea how healthy or motivated Jeffery is for this season or beyond, the Bears might be happy moving forward with sophomore Kevin White as their No. 1 after this year. Even while hurt last year, Jeffery showed he has top-flight talent, but he needs to prove he can stay on the field.

Newsday's Kimberley Martin reports both Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall are back at the Jets' facility on Tuesday.

Decker skipped last week's work to express his displeasure with how the Jets are handling Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract saga. Marshall reportedly missed the voluntary work for other reasons, but it is possible Fitzpatrick's situation played a role. Either way, both are back this week, and Fitzpatrick is still unsigned.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler believes it is possible Antonio Brown catches 150 passes this season.

Marvin Harrison currently holds the NFL record with 143 receptions in 2002, but it is not crazy to think Brown could blow by that mark. Brown caught 136 balls last year, and he managed 9.91 receptions per game while Ben Roethlisberger was healthy, which would have been good enough for 159 catches over a full season. With Martavis Bryant suspended, Brown will be the unquestioned focal point of the offense. If he and Ben stay healthy, he could set some records. Brown is the clear-cut No. 1 fantasy receiver this season.
