At his pre-draft presser Monday, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell ruled out the possibility of an extension with LT Eugene Monroe until after the 2013 season.

They also aren't going to extend Maurice Jones-Drew, who like Monroe is in a contract year. The Jaguars have been ultra-conservative and patient through Caldwell's first half-offseason, only lightly tapping into the free-agent market and refusing to make any bold moves that cost big money. They'll be able to roll over a top of cap space into 2014. If Monroe excels in rookie OC Jedd Fisch's 2013 offense, he'll likely be tagged or extended early next offseason.

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports the Chargers recently offered holdout No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa "their best offer," but Bosa rejected it and talks "are nowhere."

This is past being ridiculous, but it's only getting worse. There was a report earlier this week that the Chargers were willing to give Bosa $10 million of his $17 million signing bonus up front, but that's still not good enough for Bosa's camp. This looks like it could seriously linger into the regular season.

Packers C Corey Linsley tore his hamstring twice this offseason, once in April and a second time in July, and is expected to open the season on reserve/PUP.

Linsley suffered the first tear while working out on his own after the Packers' first set of OTAs. He thought the injury had healed and began working out again in July, only to tear it again. Linsley is currently on active/PUP, but figures to open the year there and miss the first six weeks of the season. The 2014 fifth-rounder has started 33 games through two seasons and received really strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run and pass blocking. J.C. Tretter will take over.

The Chicago Tribune reports RG Kyle Long has missed the Bears' last three practices with a "labrum issue" in his shoulder.

One source the Tribune spoke to was "not optimistic about the situation," while another source (presumably Long's agent) "was confident Long would return for Week 1. The Bears already lost starting C Hroniss Grasu to a year-ending ACL tear. Coach John Fox was predictably vague when asked about Long's timetable for return. "It doesn't really matter what I think," Fox said. "There are medical people involved and when he's cleared, he'll play."

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicts third-year WR Jared Abbrederis will be Green Bay's "breakout" player this season.

Abbrederis is listed as Randall Cobb's direct backup on the Packers' latest unofficial depth chart, suggesting he's no deeper than the No. 4 receiver. According to Demovsky, Abbrederis has enjoyed a "strong showing" at training camp and "continues to move up the depth chart." With Jeff Janis' abysmal camp and broken hand, Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams for No. 3 duties. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who can play both inside and outside.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman expects the Eagles to "feature" Darren Sproles in the passing game this season.

According to Berman, new OC Frank Reich said that every week during meetings, the coaching staff would ask, "How can we get this guy the football?" regarding Sproles. The 33-year-old caught 55 passes last season, but could jump back up into the 65-75 range similar to his New Orleans days. Ryan Mathews isn't going to play on third downs, leaving all of that work to Sproles. Reich was the Chargers' OC last season when Danny Woodhead caught 80 balls.

Patriots released WR Nate Washington.

Washington was buried on the depth chart in New England and didn't even make it to final cuts. The 33-year-old (on Sunday) had some big games for the Texans last season on his way to a 48-661-4 line, but wasn't brought back and settled for a minimum deal with the Patriots. He should be able to land another look-see at some point this season once injuries hit other teams.

Patriots waived C Bryan Stork.

Stork was a fourth-round pick in 2014 and started 13 games for the Patriots that season, including the Super Bowl win. He made another seven starts last year but missed the first eight weeks with a concussion. Stork has a lengthy history of concussions, and missed a few days of practice earlier this month with one. David Andrews is now expected to be the Pats' center.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette expects Eli Rogers to open the season as the Steelers' No. 3 receiver.

Bouchette calls Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey "backups" behind Rogers, Markus Wheaton, and Antonio Brown. It's possible Bouchette's mind could change after Pittsburgh's third preseason game, where Ben Roethlisberger will see his first action this August. At this moment, however, Rogers is in the driver's seat to start in the slot in Week 1, with Wheaton moving outside.

Suspended free agent RB Karlos Williams visited the Jets.

It's Williams' first-known visit since he cleared waivers on Monday. ESPN New York's termed the visit as "due diligence," and says a deal is not imminent. Suspended and overweight, Williams will be signing at the nadir of his value if he finds a new home this week. His best course of action may be getting his body right and building his extremely slim leverage.

Titans TE Craig Stevens is retiring after eight years in the league.

The No. 85 overall pick of the 2008 draft, Stevens is forfeiting $2 million by hanging it up. Of course, it's quite possible the decision comes after the Titans told him he wasn't going to make the team. A blocking specialist, Stevens spent his entire eight-year career in Tennessee, catching 60 passes and scoring six touchdowns.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden has "total expectation" Josh Doctson (Achilles) will be ready for Week 1.

"He did the route tree today, which is very positive," Gruden said Tuesday. "I have total expectation that he’s going to be ready Week 1, possibly the fourth preseason game, but we’ll still see. Like I said, it’s a new injury to me." Gruden also refused to rule out the reserve/PUP list in the same press conference, but it seems like coachspeak in the full context of his comments. The Redskins open the season 20 days from today.
