Broncos signed C Manny Ramirez to a two-year extension through 2015.

A journeyman before landing in Denver, Ramirez has emerged as a rock-solid center after arriving as a guard out of Texas Tech in the 2007 draft. He was previously only signed through 2013. Ramirez has earned the trust of Peyton Manning and looks to be locked in as Denver's pivot for the foreseeable future.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher expects Zach Ertz to make a "sizable jump in snaps" this season.

Ertz played 40.5 percent of the snaps as a rookie in 2013 and only progressed to 50.3 percent last year. Too often he was watching from the sideline as superior blocker Brent Celek held the edge in Chip Kelly's scheme. Celek returns for his ninth season in Philly, but Ertz is expected to surpass him on the back of improvement in the blocking department. We know the Eagles need him on the field as a receiver now that Jeremy Maclin is gone -- especially in red zone. Ertz will break out if he gets roughly 75 percent of the snaps.

Coach Mike Pettine referred to TE Rob Housler as "the ideal 'F.'"

The "F" position refers to the move tight end spot, a player that is often detached from the line. That's where Housler, a 6'5/248 specimen with 4.55 speed and a 37-inch vertical, wins. Don't be surprised if he breaks his previous career-high of 45 catches, set in 2012. Housler's current ADP is undrafted in standard-sized leagues.

The Florida Times Union projects Marqise Lee as the Jags' No. 3 wideout entering camp, behind Allen Hurns.

Lee's rookie year started with a nagging hamstring issue and ended with some disappointing on-field performances. Then he missed most of the offseason program due to a knee issue. Lee will have ground to make up if he's going to beat out Hurns for the right to line up opposite rising stud Allen Robinson in two-wide sets. We want more upside in our late-round fliers.

Todd Gurley (ACL surgery) will soon meet with Dr. James Andrews for a recheck of his surgically repaired knee.

The meeting will take place "in the next few weeks." Gurley's recovery is believed to have gone on free of setbacks, but that won't be officially determined until Dr. Andrews sees the knee. It's also possible when they meet that Gurley will be cleared for some activity before training camp, which of course would be excellent news for Gurley's chances of playing in Week 1.

Sources tell Bleacher Report's Jason Cole that contract-year QB Russell Wilson is looking to become the highest-paid player in the NFL.

It's not a surprise. In the prime of his career, Wilson is coming off back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, as well as by far his best season. It would be more noteworthy if he was starting negotiations below the "highest-paid" threshold. Going by average-annual value, Aaron Rodgers is the league's top-paid player. His five-year, $110 million deal is worth $22 million per season.

A decision on Tom Brady's appeal is not expected until mid- or late-July.

Article 46 of the CBA requires a decision to be issued "as soon as practicable." As we've seen before in cases like this, it's going to take a while. The post-hearing briefs in the appeal aren't even due until late next week, and then Roger Goodell will digest them. If Brady's camp isn't happy with the ruling, he'll then challenge the NFL in court. PFT suggests that path could lead to Brady being under center in Week 1 against the Steelers as the case gets tied up in the courts.

A league source tells Profootballtalk.com that Tom Brady "simply reiterated his denial" regarding involvement in or knowledge of deflating footballs during Tuesday's appeal with commissioner Roger Goodell, and "the answers were regarded by some in the room as not entirely credible."

Reports following Brady's meeting with Goodell indicated Tom Terrific gave an "A+ performance," but it seems league officials disagree. Brady reportedly attacked the Wells Report and stated he "didn't do anything wrong." PFT's Mike Florio -- a former attorney -- believes it is "unlikely" that Goodell will "fully exonerate" Brady, and may opt to uphold his four-game suspension.

A source told Sports Radio 610 in Houston that the Texans and Broncos had "very preliminary" discussions regarding a trade that would have sent Peyton Manning to the Texans early this offseason.

The source said the "very preliminary" talks took place before Manning took a $4 million pay cut to stay in Denver, which occurred in early March. Manning has a no-trade clause and would have had to sign off on the trade, so the idea of the Texans and Broncos engaging in legitimate trade talks still seems highly unlikely. Manning obviously isn't going anywhere in 2015.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini projects Bilal Powell as the Jets' No. 2 running back to begin training camp.

Chris Ivory is the starter, and Stevan Ridley's (ACL) health status is unknown. Cimini lists Ivory, Powell, and Zac Stacy as the Jets' top-three backs. Powell is a mediocre talent, but the Jets worked aggressively to retain him after hiring OC Chan Gailey, and Powell is the best passing-down back on the team. Powell has a chance to carve out deeper-league PPR value this year.

Tevin Coleman will enter training camp behind Devonta Freeman on the depth chart.

Freeman held serve during OTAs and minicamp, getting the first rep with the starters as the incumbent. It doesn't mean he'll hold the job through training camp. The Falcons continue to talk up Freeman's pass-game skill set, but have left the early-down work open to competition. Coleman's ceiling as an explosive, home-run hitter is far higher -- and he was hand-picked by run-game guru Kyle Shanahan. Ultimately, a committee to open the season appears likely.

The Tampa Tribune says Doug Martin had his "best offseason in three years."

Martin has come roaring off the mat, quickly going from the trade block to the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Charles Sims, who averaged 2.8 YPC last year, is likely to be used in his natural pass-catching role and Bobby Rainey projects as a backup in both spots. Although Martin has been one of the worst running backs in the league over the last two seasons, he's a lead runner in a contract year with an eighth-round ADP. As a rookie in 2012, he erupted for a 319-1,454-11 line.
