Jaguars claimed S Ray Polk off waivers from the Seahawks.

Jags coach Gus Bradley is familiar with Polk from their time together in Seattle. In Jacksonville, Polk will likely compete for a practice squad job.

Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is participating in OTAs.

He is sporting a non-contact jersey, but even getting on the field is a great sign considering some speculated Decker would not be ready for training camp following offseason surgeries to his hip and shoulder. As Decker himself said earlier this month, he should be fully ready for training camp.

Team president Bruce Allen said the Redskins would be willing to place the franchise tag on Kirk Cousins next offseason.

"Yes," Allen said when asked directly about tagging Cousins for the third year in a row. "In the collective bargaining agreement, we really have one year and an option that we can do at the end of next season if we don’t get a contract." Tagging a player three years in a row is intentionally cost prohibitive, and Cousins would be due $34 million if Washington tags him again next spring. The Redskins have other options, however, including the transition tag ($28 million) and non-exclusive franchise tag which would both offer the right of first refusal if Cousins signs an offer sheet somewhere else. Of course, all of this madness could be avoided if Washington matches Cousins' contract demands by the July 15 deadline, but that is unlikely at this point.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Odell Beckham is expected to report for OTAs on Thursday.

Beckham was working out with his trainer in California when OTAs began on Monday. These sessions are voluntary, and Beckham's contract does not include workout bonuses which would give him the incentive to show up. The reason he decided to skip the first two practices is still unknown, but we are sure he will get peppered with questions about it when he returns.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jaguars LT Branden Albert will not report for the start of OTAs.

Rapoport's colleague James Palmer reported over the weekend there were "some people" within the Jaguars who believed Albert would show after reopening communication last week, but Albert is still looking for a sweetened deal. With second-round rookie Cam Robinson an option at left tackle, Jacksonville is likely content to wait the veteran out. Mandatory minicamp begins in three weeks. Skipping that would show Albert is serious about his hold out.

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports the Rams plan to run a "tight-end-centric passing game."

It is not a surprising report considering Washington targeted a tight end on 26 percent (seventh-highest) of their attempts last season under Rams coach Sean McVay. Along with last year's fourth-rounder Tyler Higbee, second-round pick Gerald Everett gives the Rams two potentially dynamic weapons at tight end. Without much talent at receiver, it makes sense for the Rams to feature them if they are ready to step up.

Jared Goff said he is having an "easier time" learning the new offense under coach Sean McVay.

"I don’t know whether that’s scheme or the way it’s taught or what not," Goff said, "but I’ve enjoyed spending time with the coaches and picking it up pretty quickly." New OC Matt LaFleur shared a similar sentiment earlier this month, saying Goff has "really grasped the offense surprisingly fast." Goff was bad enough last year to raise serious questions about his ability to develop into a quality starter, but McVay and company will give him his best chance. As Goff suggested, that was not the case last season.

Odell Beckham did not report for the first day of Giants' voluntary OTAs on Monday.

The reason is unknown, but it's important to stress these workouts are "voluntary," and Beckham could very well report on Tuesday or sometime this week. In total, there are 10 sessions before another break ahead of next month's mandatory minicamp. Beckham is under contract for a little more than $1.8 million in 2017 and is due for a mega-extension either this summer or next.

Rams DT Aaron Donald is skipping OTAs due to a contract dispute.

Keep in mind this round of OTAs is voluntary. "It has something to do with the contract," GM Les Snead acknowledged Monday. "We're at the serious part of (negotiations)." Donald is owed just $1.8 million in 2017, and in 2018 the Rams have him under control with a fifth-year team option. Donald wants his extension now, however, and the team is amenable. The best three-technique tackle in football, Donald is likely to become the NFL's highest-paid defensive player whenever he puts pen to paper.

Former Ravens draft bust Matt Elam was arrested for grand theft and battery in Delray Beach, Florida on Monday morning.

It's his second arrest since February, when Elam was popped for allegedly possessing 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. Elam is being held on $4,500 bond. Elam, 25, has played his final NFL snap. The worst pick of Ozzie Newsome's tenure, Elam was drafted 32nd overall in 2013.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests the Steelers could play more four-receiver offense this season.

Assuming conditionally-reinstated Martavis Bryant is all systems go, the Steelers will have Bryant, Antonio Brown, Eli Rogers, and second-rounder JuJu Smith-Schuster available at wideout. Losing Ladarius Green removed a weapon from Pittsburgh's offense, and more four-wide packages could be one way to compensate. Last year's Steelers went four wide on just 1 percent of their plays. For comparison, the Jets led the NFL in four-wide sets at 33 percent.

New coach Vance Joseph said the Broncos plan to use a running back committee this season.

"You need two or three guys that can carry the load. It is no longer a one-guy position," Joseph said. "I’m excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De’Angelo (Henderson) in the mix. It’s going to be competitive, and that’s the way it should be." Anderson is the favorite for touches, but his usage will depend on Charles' health and whether Booker shows any year-two progress. Anderson currently makes sense as a sixth- to seventh-round pick in re-draft leagues, while the rest of Denver's backs are late-round fliers.
