Patriots agreed to terms with WR Julian Edelman on a one-year contract.

Edelman briefly flashed difference-making ability in the slot last season, stealing snaps from Wes Welker before a Week 3 hand injury railroaded his season. He finished with just 21 catches for 235 yards and three touchdowns in nine games, but averaged 15.5 yards per punt return and brought one to the house for the third straight season. Edelman will start the season behind Danny Amendola, Donald Jones and possibly Emmanuel Sanders, but he'll have an impact. Amendola has missed 20 games over the last two seasons.

Retired ILB Zachary Orr announced on Wednesday that he's contemplating a comeback.

Orr retired back in January after being diagnosed with a neck condition. The 25-year-old was said to be nearing an extension with the Ravens shortly before he was suddenly forced to retire. We're not sure what has changed medically with his situation, but Orr is determined to "play ball" this season. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora doesn't expect the Ravens to take the gamble on Orr's neck and bring him back. Getting cleared by a team will be Orr's biggest obstacle.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler believes Jamison Crowder "definitely" will be targeted more than Terrelle Pryor.

Answering a question about if Pryor will lead the team in receiving yards, Tandler said "chances are that one of the holdovers," namely Crowder or Jordan Reed, will take the honor. Pryor could lead the team in yardage even if Crowder sees more targets because of his downfield usage, but the big takeaway here is Crowder will have a large role in a quality passing attack. A real threat to top 100 catches, Crowder is a great pick at his current fifth-round ADP in PPR formats.

Cam Newton said he has realized he does not have to "always be the playmaker."

"I have to give other people opportunities to make plays," Newton said in an insightful piece (linked below) about his growth. "That's the hardest thing about maturation, especially for me." With new weapons in rookies Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel, Newton realizes he needs to change the way he plays and focus on "getting the ball out of my hands" in an offense which should rely more on quick passes moving forward. He also is taking better care of his body, staying away from sweets and dropping to "hands down" his lowest offseason weight despite being sidelined with a shoulder injury. Coming off one of his worst seasons in the NFL, Newton looks to be headed for a bounce back if his health cooperates.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams will not reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson before the July 17 deadline.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the same a week ago, and it does not look like anything has changed. Unable to sign Johnson to a long-term deal after tagging him last year, it would have been difficult for the Rams to handle this situation any worse, and it now looks like Johnson will head to free agency next spring having earned $31 million over two seasons.

ESPN's Adam Cousins reports a long-term deal between the Redskins and franchise-tagged Kirk Cousins "is considered a long shot for the time being."

NFL Network analyst and former GM Charley Casserly agrees, saying he does not "see any way" the two sides reach a long-term deal. There was some optimism about a new deal earlier this month -- Schefter does say there is "an improved tone between the two sides" -- but it seems like the July 17 deadline will pass without an agreement. Cousins is scheduled to make $23.94 million on the one-year franchise tender.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman said the organization "believes" in Michael Floyd, and he will remain on the club's roster and report for training camp.

Floyd boneheadedly consumed alcohol just days before his house arrest sentence was set to expire earlier this month, and he was sentenced to one day in jail in Arizona on Monday. He got off extremely light and will keep his job at the same time. Floyd won't be guaranteed to make the final 53-man roster out of camp and is certainly facing a league-mandated suspension from Roger Goodell.

Vikings WR Michael Floyd has been sentenced to one day in jail for violating the terms of his house arrest.

Floyd, who isn't allowed to drink alcohol as part of his house arrest arrangement, allegedly failed five different tests. He absurdly blamed the failures on Kombucha tea. The judge wasn't having it. Floyd is lucky to escape with only a day in jail. It's unclear how safe his Vikings' roster spot is. Floyd was signed just 47 days ago.

Saints placed DT Nick Fairley (heart) on the reserve/NFI list.

Fairley is expected to miss all of 2017, and his career is in grave danger. Per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the decision was made after consulting with "several doctors." Fairley has received at least three opinions on his heart condition. It's bitterly disappointing news after Fairley appeared in all 16 games for the first time in six NFL seasons last year. It's also a major blow to a Saints defense that remained woefully ineffective in 2016.

Eagles WRs coach Mike Groh said Alshon Jeffery had his best offseason since 2013.

Groh worked with Jeffery for three seasons in Chicago including his 2013 breakout. "Pleased with where he is physically, mentally I think he is in a good place," Groh said. "Learning a new system and working on the chemistry with Carson [Wentz] and everything like that, but it's been a good spring for him." His ability to stay on the field will always be the question, but Jeffery should return to the 1,000-yard ranks if he stays healthy. He is a solid WR2.

Cam Newton threw a football for the first time since undergoing shoulder surgery on March 30.

Newton was originally expected to resume throwing during the last week of minicamp. Despite the session being pushed back, Newton said "there's no doubt" he will be "100 percent" for training camp and expects to be "ready to rock and roll" in as little as two weeks. Despite his confidence, it would not be surprising if the Panthers take it slow early in training camp, but he should be back to full health well before Week 1.

ESPN's James Walker believes Jay Ajayi "could put up 1,900 total yards if he stays healthy."

Walker's official projection is 1,435 rushing yards, 482 receiving yards, and 12 touchdowns. The rushing number is not far-fetched considering Ajayi rumbled for 1,272 yards in 12 starts last season, although that number was inflated by three 200-yard games. The receiving number is more of a jump after Ajayi logged just 151 yards through the air last year, but the back has earned consistent praise for his improvement in the passing game all offseason. Only two running backs managed 1,900 total yards last year -- Le'Veon Bell would have joined David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott on that list if he had played 16 games -- so the fact that Ajayi even has a shot at that number shows what kind of fantasy upside he possesses. He is a locked-in RB1.
