Packers signed QB Vince Young to a one-year contract.

Thankfully, the Graham Harrell era is over. Young, 30, brings to Green Bay 50 career starts with a 31-19 record, 46:51 TD-to-INT ratio, and 5.2 YPC average as a scrambler. No matter your thoughts on Young, he stands a far better chance than Harrell of keeping the Packers' offense competitive in the event of an Aaron Rodgers injury, which unfortunately became more likely when LT Bryan Bulaga tore his ACL over the weekend. In a high-powered Packers offense, Young will offer some fantasy upside as a reserve in two-QB leagues and possible back-end QB1 if Rodgers missed time. Despite headcase tendencies, Young is a dual-threat quarterback with functional accuracy and game-breaking run skills.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan said "don't be surprised" if the Giants look to trade OT Ereck Flowers during the draft.

The former first-round pick has been a no-show for offseason workouts, a decision that has not been "well-received" within the organization. Even with Flowers due a reasonable $2.4 million in the final year of his rookie deal—the Giants are expected to decline his fifth-year option—the 23-year-old may struggle to draw trade interest. One anonymous NFC scout told Raanan he "wouldn't want him in the building" while adding that Flowers "sounds like he's not worth the trouble." Flowers earned PFF's No. 63 tackle grade out of 83 qualifiers last year.

Broncos OLB Shane Ray expects his fifth-year option to be picked up.

Ray played just eight games last year and hasn't lived up to his draft status. There's not a ton of downside in picking up his option, which guarantees him $9.2 million for injury only. The Broncos have until May 3 to make a decision on Ray.

Draft Analyst’s Tony Pauline reports Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being drafted by the Jets is a "done deal."

The Jets are higher on Mayfield than Josh Rosen. They also like Sam Darnold, but Mayfield looks to be their pick if Darnold doesn't fall. Mayfield has "won over" GM Mike Maccagnan in the pre-draft process and fits the West Coast scheme of OC Jeremy Bates. The most pro-ready quarterback in this year's class, Mayfield would push Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown to be the Jets' Week 1 starter.

Rob Gronkowski won't participate in the Patriots' offseason workouts.

When asked if he'll participate in the team's voluntary workouts, Gronk said he won't because he's "got dirt-biking skills to work on." He also candidly mentioned the Patriots will see a "freek-a-leek" when he comes back, perhaps hinting he'll be a participant in camp. Team workouts are completely optional, but the 28-year-old will miss out on a $250,000 workout bonus in his contract. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier in the week Gronkowski is still considering whether to play in 2018.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Eagles have reached an agreement with QB Nick Foles on a revised contract.

The deal includes a mutual option for 2019, so it's possible Foles could still hit the market as a free agent next offseason. He'll also receive a $2 million signing bonus. The Eagles are sweetening Foles' deal as a way of repaying him for leading the team to its first Super Bowl last year. He'll be back as Carson Wentz's backup in 2018.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said the team has been in touch with Amari Cooper's agent about "possibly" exercising his fifth-year option.

"I don’t want to put anything out there, don’t want to put the cart before the horse so to speak," said McKenzie. "But we like Amari." A year ago, picking up Cooper's option would have been a no-brainer, but he damaged his stock by committing 10 drops last season, third-most in the NFL behind only Keenan Allen and Dez Bryant. The Raiders claim Cooper wasn't fully healthy, which may explain why the 23-year-old finished with career-lows in both catches (48) and receiving yards (680). The Raiders have until May 3 to decide on Cooper's option.

Ex-Jaguars and Patriots RB Tyler Gaffney has given up football to try for a major-league baseball career.

Gaffney had some promising preseasons in the NFL, but he couldn't stay healthy. At age 26, he's trying his hand as an outfielder in the Pittsburgh Pirates' organization. "My dream has been the big leagues my whole life," Gaffney said. "I think I've been tasting that every time I was hurt. You have time to think about things like that. So now I'm here, putting in my work." A multi-sport star at Stanford, Gaffney doubled as a college baseball and football player and was drafted in the 24th round by the Pirates in 2012.

Colts GM Chris Ballard confirmed Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still not throwing a football.

However, Ballard said a lot of the exercises Luck has been doing are "conducive to the same thing." Ballard added that Indy's decision to trade down from the No. 3 pick shows the team is confident in Luck's long-term health. The former No. 1 pick missed all of last year while recovering from shoulder surgery.

Browns GM John Dorsey said during his pre-draft press conference he thinks "hand size is important" when looking for a quarterback.

It's possible foreshadowing as the Browns have continuously been linked to Wyoming QB Josh Allen, who has the largest hand size among quarterbacks in this year's class, with the No. 1 overall pick. "You'll laugh at me when I say it, but I think hand size is important,'' Dorsey said. "Hand size in November and December, when it's snowing, raining, it's getting muddy...We all know the elements in Cleveland are going to play a role." Dorsey also went out of his way to acknowledge the Browns are making sure Sam Darnold, who fumbled 21 times in 24 starts at USC, has adequate hand size to hang on to the football in AFC North stadiums late in the season. "You worry about that sometimes," he said. Cleveland has reportedly "considered" drafting a quarterback with both the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks.

Ravens signed restricted free agent WR Willie Snead to a two-year, $10.4 million offer sheet.

The Saints will now have five days to match the offer or risk losing him. Snead already reported to the Saints' offseason program but the team is unlikely to match Baltimore's offer after they gave him just an original-round tender then signed Cameron Meredith to a two-year, $9.6 million contract. New Orleans also re-signed Brandon Coleman earlier this week. Assuming Snead moves on to the Ravens, they will have overhauled their receiving corps by adding Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Snead this offseason.

Earl Thomas' reps told Seahawks GM John Schneider at his charity event Thursday Thomas won't hold out even if he does not receive a new contract.

Thomas is scheduled to earn $8.5 million in the final year of his contract this season and recently hinted he would be willing to hold out for a new deal. This new detail is not only great news for the Seahawks, but for any potential suitor that was concerned about trading for him and immediately finalizing an extension. No matter where he plays this season, Thomas, still only 28, is likely to command an annual $12-million plus on his next contract.
