Texans RCB Johnathan Joseph underwent double sports-hernia surgery after the season, but says he's back to 100 percent.

"With the groin issues and everything behind me and the sports hernia on both sides, I had both those fixed," Joseph said. "Now I have more pop, more explosion with my legs. I can run all day again. ... I'm having probably the best OTAs I've had in four or five years." Injured nearly all year, Joseph's play regressed sharply last season from his stellar 2011. He's a nice bounce-back candidate as long as he manages to stay healthy.

Broncos GM John Elway said the team has no "intent" to pursue Tony Romo even if he is released by the Cowboys.

The Broncos have been leaking lukewarm interest in Romo for quite some time, but those leaks were thought to be an effort to convince Dallas they would not trade for the quarterback. Perhaps this is another such attempt -- "intent" is not the same as "no chance" -- but 9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos' interest has "cooled" in the last month. With Romo now looking like a long shot, Denver will turn to either Trevor Siemian or 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch. Siemian is the favorite to win that battle.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the saga surrounding Tony Romo "isn't ending any time soon."

RapSheet reports the Cowboys could keep Romo on the roster even once the draft is over. Since there is no financial deadline to release Romo, it makes sense for Dallas to hold the quarterback through the draft in an effort to call the Texans' bluff, but keeping him on the roster once the offseason program begins could lead to an uncomfortable situation. With the Broncos seemingly out of the running and the Texans looking unlikely to blink, release remains the most likely outcome.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said people have "read too much into" Ben Roethlisberger's retirement comments and "are making more out of than what it is."

"I think it’s a very reasonable discussion when you get to 35," Tomlin added. "It’s probably not the first year he’s gone through that process and it probably won’t be the last if he continues." Tomlin seems unconcerned by the retirement talk, and there has not been any indication the Steelers are taking the discussion seriously. Roethlisberger will almost certainly return in 2017.

Speaking at the NFL Owners Meetings on Monday, Broncos GM John Elway continued to express confidence in Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian when asked about Denver's interest in Tony Romo.

Officially, Elway can't comment on Romo because he is on another team's roster. "We feel really good about the two young ones we have," Elway insisted. "Trevor did a good job for us last year and Paxton was young. The plan is to stay the course there. ... It'll be a great competition between them in the spring." If the Broncos do truly "stay the course," Siemian will be the favorite to open the season as their starting quarterback.

Patriots owner Bob Kraft said Monday at the NFL Owners Meetings that Tom Brady believes he can continue playing into his mid to late 40s.

Brady turns 40 this August. "As recently as two to three days ago, (Brady) assured me he’s willing to play six, seven more years," were Kraft's exact words. Kraft added that he's hopeful Bill Belichick will "coach into his 80s." A lot of this feels hyperbolic and will likely prove to be, but Brady's current physical fitness and always-evolving game make the notion of him playing until age 45 seem conceivable as things stand today.

Patriots owner Bob Kraft compared Brandin Cooks' potential impact to Randy Moss' in New England.

This isn't terribly meaningful coming from an owner, but it's probably something Kraft has heard from the coaching staff. "Since I've owned the team," said Kraft, "the only player that could make an impact like that at wide receiver was Randy Moss." The 2007 Patriots were the greatest offense of all time with Moss on the perimeter and Wes Welker working the slot. Cooks will likely take over as New England's top outside threat with Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski dominating the middle of the field.

Patriots owner Bob Kraft said at the NFL Owners Meetings that New England's "intention isn't to trade" LCB Malcolm Butler.

At the same time, Kraft made no statement regarding a long-term commitment to Butler. Butler is on the last year of his rookie contract and is scheduled to make less than $4 million despite Pro Bowl-level on-field performance the past two years. The Patriots essentially chose Stephon Gilmore over Butler. It appears they are now hoping Butler will swallow his pride and play on his one-year, $3.91 million restricted free agent tender. A trade to New Orleans still can't be ruled out.

The NFL has approved the Raiders' relocation to Las Vegas.

Shameful. The tally was 31-1, with only Dolphins owner Stephen Ross voting no. The NFL has taken to declaring "football is family," but what it really is is money. The Bay Area is one of the richest economic zones in all of human history, but Raiders owner Mark Davis is the poorest owner in the NFL. Since he apparently couldn't finance a stadium in Oakland and the local authorities wouldn't provide him corporate welfare, he's uprooted for Las Vegas, where a sports-desperate area and casino magnates will foot the bill. It's the NFL's third relocation in 15 months. Any time a team moves is a dark day for its league. Today is no different for the NFL. The Raiders will remain in Oakland for 2017 — and supposedly 2018 — with uncertain plans for 2019. 2020 is their estimated arrival in Vegas.

The New York Daily News reports the Giants are interested in free agent C Nick Mangold.

It's Mangold's first tangible connection since he was released by the Jets on Feb. 25. The G-Men already have Weston Richburg at center, but ESPN's Dan Graziano has reported some teams are eyeing Mangold as a guard. Perhaps he could compete with John Jerry on the right side in New York. The Giants' run blocking left much to be desired in 2016.

A source told ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi that the Browns "would make another run" at trading for Jimmy Garoppolo at this week's Owners Meetings.

Convening in Phoenix for a few days of meetings, top decision makers Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick of the Patriots and Jimmy Haslam and Sashi Brown of the Browns will be in the same building, making for easier conversations. There have been several reports of the Patriots being adamant they won't trade Garoppolo, but the Browns are going to try their best. Grossi believes either Garoppolo or Cody Kessler will be the Week 1 starter. Brock Osweiler isn't viewed as having a realistic shot.
