Percy Harvin (hip) tweeted Wednesday that he's "making serious progress."

"I'm starving so bad to get on this field," Harvin continued. "Keep an eye on Week 7." Harvin was placed on the reserve/PUP list last Tuesday. The earliest he can return to game action is Week 7. The initial diagnosis for Harvin's recovery from hip surgery was 3-4 months, so a Week 7 return would be slightly ahead of schedule. Coach Pete Carrol has been quiet on Harvin's status recently. Because Harvin has difference-making fantasy scoring ability, we wouldn't discourage forward-thinking owners from picking him up to stash.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will retain LT Jason Peters.

The Eagles have some cap concerns and needs at high-priced positions, so there had been some speculation they would move on from the veteran tackle or at the very least ask him to take a pay cut. Neither option appears like it will happen, so Peters will make $10.7 million in salary and bonuses to protect Carson Wentz's blindside in 2017.

ESPN's Michael Rothstein wrote the Lions "might end up overhauling" the tight end position this offseason.

Eric Ebron has improved each of his three years in the league, but Detroit will have to decide whether to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason, and they could use more help at the position either way. The Lions can make their "big splash" by targeting a top-of-the-market option like Martellus Bennett in free agency or using a first-round pick on an elite prospect like Alabama's O.J. Howard or Miami's David Njoku. Either way, it will not be surprising if Ebron faces competition for targets come September.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is "no guarantee" Jay Cutler plays in 2017.

"He's one of several veterans who are still considering whether they want to play," Rapoport continued. "It is a consideration. It's something he's confided in people." Cutler will be 34 in April and has dealt with several injuries the last couple seasons including the torn labrum he is currently rehabbing, but it would be shocking if he decided to retire. This is almost certainly a ploy to scare away any potential trading partners, forcing the Bears to release him and allowing him to pick his next destination. With so many quarterback-needy teams, Cutler should have a healthy market once he is cut.

Derek Carr (broken leg) told LT Donald Penn he is "almost 100 percent."

Penn relayed the news while sharing an NFL Network set with David Carr, who added his brother plans to get in a "full offseason." Perhaps the Raiders take it slow with their franchise quarterback during OTAs, but there is no reason to worry about his availability. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Carr should land a long-term extension before the start of the season.

Sources told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo the Ravens "may balk" at paying Dennis Pitta's $5.5 million salary.

The Baltimore Sun hinted at this after the season. Turning 32 in June, Pitta's 86 receptions led all NFL tight ends last year, but he averaged an anemic 6.02 yards per target and didn't have a positive impact on offense beyond catching short passes and immediately falling down. Pitta also wasn't a big part of the Ravens' red-zone passing game. In Maxx Williams and Darren Waller, Baltimore has younger tight ends with more potential, and could use salary cap relief.

Coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday the Titans will continue to view DeMarco Murray as "the guy" in their backfield for 2017.

Mularkey called sophomore Derrick Henry "an important part of our offense," but confirmed Murray will enter 2017 as Tennessee's workhorse. Now 29 years old, Murray averaged 4.39 yards per carry and logged 346 touches last season, although his effectiveness waned down the stretch due to a toe injury. While Henry will remain a threat for short-yardage and complementary carries, Murray's superior all-purpose ability keeps his feature back role secure.

49ers announced assistant GM Tom Gamble has left the organization.

In a statement, rookie GM John Lynch announced he and Gamble "agreed that it would be in both of our best interests for him to pursue other opportunities" after working together for the last month. With a rookie general manager and head coach at the controls, the 49ers are losing an experienced and well-respected personnel man who could have eased the transition. Gamble is a 29-year scouting/front office veteran, including ten years with the 49ers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests the Patriots could transition tag free agent ILB Dont'a Hightower.

The Patriots want to keep Hightower but haven't had any talks since the end of the season. There's some concern over giving him a multi-year deal after durability concerns surfaced in 2016. Transition tagging would be cheaper than franchising Hightower but only guarantees New England the ability to match any offer. Hightower is reportedly targeting more than $10 million annually.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Le'Veon Bell hasn't scheduled offseason groin surgery.

As RapSheet notes, Bell very likely would have done so by now had he needed the operation. Just about two weeks ago, Bell was seeking a third opinion on his groin after one doctor suggested he needed surgery and another advised against it. The third was the likely tiebreaker. Bell probably won't do much at spring practices but should be fine well in advance of training camp. Expect the Steelers to use the franchise tag on Bell before the March 1 deadline.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Redskins are wondering if they can sign Tony Romo if he's released by the Cowboys.

We wouldn't go as far to label this as a report, as it's more of a throwing-at-the-wall by Cole. But it's notable nonetheless since it makes a ton of sense. Long-term talks with Kirk Cousins have broken down, and it has the looks of a divorce waiting to happen. But as Cole mentions, Washington may not even get a shot at Romo if the Cowboys choose to trade him. Even if he's released, Romo and the Cowboys may have a handshake agreement that he doesn't sign with a division rival. Colt McCoy is currently the Redskins' No. 2 quarterback.

The Redskins have yet to address local radio personality Chris Cooley's recent suggestion that GM Scot McCloughan has been drinking again.

The annual dysfunction that plagued Washington for decades before McCloughan's hiring has resurfaced, most publicly when Cooley -- who works for the Redskins and Dan Snyder's radio station -- suggested McCloughan has resumed drinking after alcoholism led to his ousters in San Francisco and Seattle. Per the Washington Post's Jerry Brewer, McCloughan's power in the organization was always less than perceived, and team president Bruce Allen has far more say. "Even during good times," Brewer wrote, "Allen hasn’t liked that McCloughan is cast as a savior changing the culture of the organization and erasing the many mistakes of the past." McCloughan was not allowed to hire his own scouting staff and has been prohibited from speaking to the media. And at some point in the near future, it wouldn't be surprising if McCloughan were pushed out the door.
