Cowboys re-signed S Eric Frampton.

A career reserve, Frampton started two games for the Cowboys last December. Dallas is much healthier at safety than it was in 2012, so Frampton won't be assured a roster spot. He should at least make it to final cuts.

Kirk Cousins thinks first-round WR Josh Doctson can be "a great weapon in the red zone."

Doctson might not beat out Pierre Garcon for a starting job by Week 1, but he has the size and ball skills to be an immediate threat in the red zone. "Looks like he can make the contested catch. It’s very natural for him to go up and catch that type of pass," Cousins said. "He can run well. He has got great size. I almost thought he was a tight end when he showed up because if his size." If DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed can stay healthy, Cousins should have no shortage of weapons to target this season.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt said "the plan" is for DeMarco Murray to handle "the bulk of the carries."

Coach Mike Mularkey said as much right after the Titans spent a second-round pick on Derrick Henry. While that could be the plan right now, Henry will certainly get his opportunities and could end up stealing work if Murray looks as sluggish and spent as he did last year in Philadelphia. For what it is worth, Wyatt says Murray has "been impressive so far."

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia does not believe Marshawn Lynch will return to the Seahawks even if he decides to unretire.

Speculation about Lynch deciding to unhang his cleats has picked up in the last couple weeks, but Kapadia does not think Seattle will welcome him back with open arms. Owed $9 million if he decides to play, Lynch will have to agree to a big pay cut to return. The Seahawks also spent three draft picks on running backs and have Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael returning after effective seasons. If Lynch does decide to come back, it will likely be for another team.

The New York Post reports the Jets have a standing three-year offer for free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The proposal has a $12 million salary in the first year, and has "been on the table for four months." It sounds like it's going to take a higher base or more money on the back end to get something done. Despite a lack of movement between the sides, the Jets remain likely to get Fitzpatrick signed before training camp. Fitzpatrick has made clear his desire to stay with Gang Green.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the "hope" remains that Thomas Rawls (ankle) is ready for Week 1.

The same is true for Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon). The Seahawks haven't really offered anything new on Rawls in recent months, but it remains notable that they can't guarantee his Week 1 status. Rawls offers mammoth upside as a potential workhorse in a run-heavy offense, but his health is a major question mark. Third-rounder C.J. Prosise and Christine Michael are the next men up.

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones says the team isn't interested in trading Darren McFadden or Alfred Morris.

"We got calls during the draft asking to trade for a couple of our running backs, and we just don’t have that interest," Jones said. There's little urgency for the Cowboys to unload McFadden or Morris right now, but that could change if Ezekiel Elliott tears up camp and the preseason, as is likely. DMC offers passing-game insurance behind rehabbing Lance Dunbar (ACL) that Morris has never provided. If either player were to be traded, it would be for a conditional late-rounder.

Kelvin Benjamin (ACL) participated in OTAs on Thursday.

This was Benjamin's first organized practice since tearing the ACL in his left knee last August. He will likely be eased through the offseason program, but Benjamin should be 100 percent for training camp. Even with his target share likely to decline after a stellar rookie campaign, Benjamin has the touchdown upside to remain in the WR2 conversation.

Lions first-round pick Taylor Decker opened OTAs as the first-team left tackle.

Riley Reiff was expected remain on the left side in the final year of his rookie deal, but he was playing right tackle on Thursday. This is just one offseason practice, but the Lions have been fairly open about their desire to move Reiff to the right side. Decker was not seen as the player who would facilitate that switch by people outside the organization, but it seems Detroit has other ideas.

Ameer Abdullah underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in January.

Abdullah originally suffered the injury in December, but he was able to play through it over the final two weeks. He is expected to miss the rest of the offseason program, but he should be ready for training camp. Even though his Week 1 status is not in doubt, this is a poor development for a player trying to establish himself as the clear lead back in Detroit. Theo Riddick, Stevan Ridley and Zach Zenner will pick up extra practice reps while Abdullah is sidelined.

Free agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') said he is about a month away from full health.

Foster tore his Achilles' at the end of October. "I probably need another month to get where I am, the person everyone is use to seeing," Foster said. "I can definitely play but I need another month to be where I want to be and be at that Pro Bowl level." Close to full health, Foster should be comfortable signing with a new team in the next month. The Dolphins have been the strongest link so far, but the Redskins would make sense as well.

Drew Brees said he and the Saints have not discussed a long-term contract extension in about two months.

Brees said he is "not stressing" over his contract, but he does not want negotiations to drag into the season. "I don't like to talk about contract during the season," Brees said. "So there's a deal to be done now, and then if it doesn't get done now, then there will be a different deal to get done at the end of the year." The reason Brees gives for the deadline is not wanting his contract to be a distraction during the season. That may be true, but this pronouncement has the added benefit of putting pressure on the Saints to get something done. It would be a shock if the two sides did not come to an agreement before the season.
