Giants coach Tom Coughlin hinted he is comfortable with David Wilson carrying a larger workload in the wake of Andre Brown's left-leg fracture.

"You have to do what you have to do in order to win," Coughlin explained. "It is a game of strength and endurance and power and that kind of thing. David is a guy who has outstanding endurance and strength. I’m not aware of what the number (of carries) might be, but I’m sure we’ll work that out." Wilson should have no trouble reaching 20-plus touches in Week 1 against the Cowboys. He's also the new favorite for all goal-line work in New York.

Broncos GM John Elway said he's open to trading the No. 5 pick in next week's draft.

Elway said Denver is open to moving both up or down in the draft. He also added that if the Broncos do stand pat at No. 5, the team will select the best player available, regardless of position. The expectation all along has been that Denver would choose a quarterback at No. 5. There's still a good chance of that happening, though obviously Elway isn't ready to tip his hand. If the Broncos are truly open for business at No. 5, the quarterback-needy Bills would be wise to place a call into Elway.

Giants released/failed physical WR Brandon Marshall.

As expected. Marshall showed zero chemistry with Eli Manning in his lone season with the G-Men, amassing just 18 catches for 154 yards and no touchdowns on 33 targets before going down with a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. The 34-year-old told the team he was open to taking a pay cut to stay in New York, but the Giants dumped him anyway. Marshall's release saves New York $5.16 million in cap space. With Marshall gone, the Giants could make a run at ex-Cowboy Dez Bryant, who prefers to stay in the NFC East.

The Ringer's Kevin Clark reports the Browns have "considered" drafting a quarterback with both the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks.

It is highly unlikely this actually happens, but that does not mean it is a bad idea. The success rate of even first-round quarterbacks is shockingly low, but taking two of the top quarterbacks would give Cleveland a decent shot at landing one long-term starter. If both pan out, they would also have a valuable trade chip to acquire future assets. That said, developing one quarterback is difficult enough, and it would be a challenge to find enough practice reps for Tyrod Taylor and two rookies. Still, the fact the Browns have even considering an out-of-the-box idea like this is a good sign.

Bucs sophomore LB Kendell Beckwith suffered a broken ankle in a car accident last week.

Beckwith was a passenger in a one-car accident last week in Louisiana. He underwent surgery on Tuesday and is at best questionable for training camp. A third-round pick out of LSU last season, Beckwith struggled in 846 snaps as a rookie.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports "more than one team prefers" Maryland WR D.J. Moore to Alabama WR Calvin Ridley.

Productive despite a myriad of quarterback issues at Maryland, Moore is an explosive athlete (39.5-inch vertical and 132-inch broad) with exceptional ability after the catch. He is certainly not as refined as Ridley, but his physical skills give him a higher ceiling. It would not be a surprise to hear Moore's name called before Ridley's next week.

DeSean Jackson and Jameis Winston plan to work out together this offseason.

After coach Dirk Koetter criticized the quarterback for not getting Jackson the ball, Winston made it a goal to improve his chemistry with the speedy receiver this offseason. "Me and DeSean, we have spent a lot of time together this offseason whether it was on the phone, Facetime or even at his house," Winston said. "We're going to find times and slots where we can work outside of the facility to help build our connection." Jackson is a good bet to improve on his 50/668/3 line from a season ago.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said he is going to use Tarik Cohen all over the formation.

"He’s a run threat and then he can catch the ball in space in broken formations," Nagy said. "We’re going to teach him everything we can and move him around and do different things." After averaging 8.75 touches a game as a rookie, it sounds like Cohen will have a bigger role under the new coaching staff. Nagy has compared Cohen to Tyreek Hill, who he coached in Kansas City.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Kevin White "has a big ceiling."

Nagy is setting a clean slate for the former No. 7 overall pick, saying it is up to White whether he can turn that upside into production. "He’s got to put time in the playbook. He’s got to put in the extra work after practice when he can," Nagy said. "And then when the game comes, he’s got to make plays." White has played five games in three seasons because of multiple injuries and did not show well in that limited action. He is a long-shot to develop into a quality contributor.

The Palm Beach Post expects the Dolphins to exercise DeVante Parker's fifth-year team option.

Parker has disappointed through three seasons, but he just turned 25 and maintains late-breakout potential. The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad expects Parker's fifth-year option to be worth roughly $9.5 million. Fifth-year team options for former first-round picks are guaranteed only for injury, so the Dolphins could conceivably release Parker next offseason if he doesn't step up in 2018.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes the Jets are targeting Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold with the No. 3 pick.

The Jets haven't had much interest in Josh Allen and look to have Mayfield slightly ahead of Josh Rosen. With Allen the top pick favorite, Darnold could slide to the Jets if the Giants pivot to Saquon Barkley. Mayfield has been rising over the last week and isn't expected to fall out of the top-five picks.

Franchise player Le'Veon Bell did not report for the Steelers' offseason program this week.

These "practices" are voluntary, and it was widely expected that Bell wouldn't report, as he remains unsigned on the franchise tag for the second consecutive year. Contract talks have completely stalled and possibly broken off. The sides have until mid-July to hammer out a long-term deal, one that looks like a long shot right now. Bell would then likely skip training camp as well.
