Lions placed LE Jason Jones on injured reserve with torn left patellar tendon, ending his season.

The 27-year-old end went down with a non-contact injury in Sunday's win. Signed to a three-year, $9.5 million deal in March, Jones ends his first year in the Motor City having generated just two quarterback pressures in 87 snaps (per Pro Football Focus). Andre Fluellen is taking Jones' roster spot, though Willie Young, Israel Idonije and perhaps rookie Devin Taylor will split up his role.

Bucs K Roberto Aguayo connected on just 5-of-9 field goal attempts during two OTA practices open to the media last week.

Competitor Nick Folk went 9-for-9 on kicks all from the same distance. Tampa Bay Times reporter Rick Stroud is skeptical Aguayo will be a part of the Bucs' 2017 roster, just one year after GM Jason Licht traded up to draft him in the second round. Whereas Aguayo managed a league-low 71 percent field goal rate as a rookie, Folk is a lifetime 81.3-percent kicker.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss expects the Patriots to hold onto Dion Lewis, but in a lesser role.

The Patriots' backfield is well stocked following the additions of Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee. Reiss expects the Pats to "carefully manage" injury-riddled Lewis this season, limiting him to 15-20 snaps per game. Reiss did note that Lewis hit the line of scrimmage with "noticeable burst" at Thursday's OTA practice. Lewis is also expected to return kickoffs.

Franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins says extension talks with the Redskins have been "really positive."

"As one person told me, Deadlines do deals," said Cousins. "That’s just kind of a rule in negotiating, so why would something happen way before a deadline? I’m not in a hurry, they’re not in a hurry, so we’ll just see how things go." The Redskins have been in talks with Cousins since the start of the offseason, but haven't gotten anywhere. It sounds like Cousins is still open to an extension if his demands are reached. Washington has until July 15 to work out a deal.

The Boston Herald's Karen Guregian reports Rob Gronkowski (back) was a "full-go" during OTAs.

Guregian notes Gronk was allowed to do everything despite it raining, suggesting the Patriots are very comfortable with his recovery. That is not a surprise considering the team allowed him to participate in a WWE event earlier this offseason and recently restructured his deal. Injuries will always be a concern, but Gronkowski remains the top overall fantasy tight end.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports DeShone Kizer is "on the fast-track" to winning the Browns' starting job.

Coach Hue Jackson called Kizer a "quick study." Kizer is being pushed to get up to speed as quickly as possible. Cody Kessler is getting the majority of first-team reps, but it looks like the Browns have no plans to slow play Kizer.

Saints RT Zach Strief has agreed to a restructured contract.

He's getting a well-deserved raise. Per Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, Strief's base salary for 2017 has been increased from $1 million to $1.7 million while his per game roster bonus was bumped up from $1.4 million to $1.7 million. Strief started every game at right tackle last season while earning PFF's No. 10 tackle grade out of 76 qualifiers.

Broncos signed third-round WR Carlos Henderson to a four-year contract.

The Broncos now have all of their draft picks under contract. The Louisiana Tech alum will look to carve a role behind top wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders as a rookie. Henderson came in as the No. 7 wide receiver in Evan Silva's dynasty rookie rankings earlier this month.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he's been pleased with first-round RB Leonard Fournette's pass-catching at OTAs.

Fournette wasn't asked to catch many passes at LSU (41 catches for 526 yards in three seasons) but he seemed comfortable as a receiver at the Combine and his Pro Day and has kept up the good work at OTAs. Beat reporter Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union only saw Fournette drop one pass during Friday's practice. If Fournette continues to progress as a pass-catcher, he should develop into an every-down back.

According to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson, it is "far from certain" that 2016 third-round WR Leonte Carroo even makes the Dolphins' 53-man roster.

Last year's 86th overall pick, Carroo was active 14 times as a rookie, but caught just three passes and was a healthy scratch in the playoff loss. Carroo remains buried behind DeVante Parker, Jarvis Landry, and Kenny Stills. Jackson believes Jakeem Grant, UDFA Drew Morgan, and second-year UDFA Rashawn Scott could push Carroo. Carroo has little-to-no Dynasty value at the moment.

Ex-Eagles and 49ers coach Chip Kelly has joined ESPN as an NFL and college football analyst.

Kelly auditioned for a job with FOX Sports back in March, but obviously didn't land it. He'll join the Worldwide Leader in Sports as it overhauls its on-air talent. Kelly interviewed for the Jaguars' head-coaching gig over the winter and was connected to the team as its OC after Doug Marrone got the head job. There were also whispers Kelly could join Alabama to replace Steve Sarkisian as OC. None of it worked out, and Kelly will take a break from coaching to join the media.

NFL suspended free agent CB Justin Gilbert four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

It helps explain Gilbert's February release by the Steelers. Still only 25, Gilbert appeared in 12 games for the Steelers last season, but played only 12 snaps on defense. Gilbert is probably just about out of NFL chances.
