Citing a league source, Profootballtalk.com reports Rob Gronkowski's (back, arm) outlook is "not optimistic" for Week 4 at Atlanta.

The Patriots are 3-0 and can afford to hold Gronkowski out until he's absolutely 100 percent. He clearly isn't yet. PFT passes along speculation that Gronk's back is no longer the "primary impediment," but his several-times-infected forearm may still be. The Patriots will likely still list Gronkowski as "limited" in Friday's practice and "questionable" on the injury report, but fantasy owners can't count on him in a Sunday night game. Find an alternative.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Latavius Murray is expected to test the open market.

Per Anderson, "the door will remain open" for a possible return to Oakland, though Murray will obviously explore other options. Murray lost work to rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard last season but still finished among the league leaders with 12 rushing touchdowns. If Murray leaves the nest, Oakland will likely add a power back in the draft.

Darrelle Revis hinted that he'd be willing to take a pay cut to stay with the Jets.

Interacting with fans on Instagram, Revis admitted he no longer deserves to be paid like a top-10 cornerback. Now facing multiple charges for his alleged role in a Pittsburgh brawl earlier this month, the Jets may decide to simply move on, no matter how big of a pay cut he's willing to take. Wherever he plays next, there's a good chance Revis will have to convert to safety after looking completely overmatched at cornerback last season.

ESPN's Rich Cimini doesn't think the Jets have given up on impending free agent Geno Smith.

While Cimini agrees that Smith could probably benefit from a change of scenery, he also points out that it wouldn't cost much to retain him. Smith hinted at a return to New York with a cryptic tweet earlier this week: "Don't act surprised... that's all I'm going to say!" Smith could be agreeable to a one-year, prove-it deal, though the Jets may have reservations following surgery to repair a torn ACL. That could sideline Smith until September or October.

Impending free agent S Matt Elam was arrested on drug charges Sunday in Miami.

Elam was pulled over for driving recklessly early Sunday morning. When police searched his vehicle, they discovered 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. He was then booked at 3:45 a.m. on charges of possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis, possession of cannabis with the intent to sell or deliver, and possession of a controlled substance. Beat writer Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes the charges are serious enough to put Elam's career in jeopardy.

Jets released C Nick Mangold.

It's another cap-saving move from GM Mike Maccagnan. There were rumblings Mangold could take a pay cut, but his release was expected with Gang Green now committed to a bottoming-out approach. The Jets have cleared $26.6 million with Mangold, Ryan Clady, RT Breno Giacomini, and K Nick Folk gone. There should be a strong market for Mangold despite coming off injury at age 33. Wesley Johnson is Mangold's in-house replacement.

ESPN's John Keim reports it is "likely" the Redskins pursue impending free agent DE Calais Campbell.

The match makes sense. Campbell is one of the highest-impact defensive linemen available, while Washington needs playmakers in their front seven. There will be plenty of other teams interested if Campbell hits the market, however, and Keim questions whether the Redskins are willing to get in a bidding war for a 30-year-old. Campbell has also been linked to Denver, and it will not be surprising if he ends up re-signing with Arizona.

ESPN's Rich Cimini would "be surprised" if Jay Cutler ended up with the Jets.

Cutler to the Jets seems to be the rumor du jour, but Cimini has consistently shot those rumors down. Still, the dots are easy to connect with Cutler's former position coach and former teammates in New York, and the Jets are likely looking for a veteran bridge of Cutler's ilk to get them to their future quarterback. The noise is unlikely to die until the Jets add someone else or Cutler signs with a different team.

Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta said the Ravens are looking to add a possession receiver.

"I think we're looking for a guy that can catch the ball, move the chains and get critical first downs when needed," DeCosta said. Brandon Marshall would seem to fit that description, and The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec has already written the Ravens "would at least inquire" if the Jets release him. Baltimore also has a long history of signing veteran receivers at the tail end of their careers, and Marshall would not count towards the compensatory pick formula if he is released. It all makes too much sense to actually happen.

49ers signed DT Earl Mitchell to a four-year, $16 million contract.

He'll get $5.5 million in year one. Mitchell drew a surprising amount of interest for a nearing-30 defensive tackle who hasn't recorded a sack in two years, and hasn't earned a positive run-defense grade from Pro Football Focus in a half decade. A 6-foot-2, 296-pound undersized nose tackle, Mitchell's on-field play has been nondescript at best. He has also missed 11 games the past two seasons due to injury. The 49ers need to keep searching for good football players. They have very few of them right now.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci passes along "a lot of buzz" that the 49ers could draft Alabama ILB Reuben Foster with the No. 2 overall pick.

Carucci is one of the NFL's most well-connected beat writers, having worked for multiple teams and as a reporter for NFL.com. Even if he gets past San Francisco at No. 2, Carucci fully expects Foster to be drafted in the single digits. After watching Foster's college tape, ESPN's Louis Riddick described him as "everything I want in a run-and-hit linebacker," and "vicious" on the field. Foster, however, is presently recovering from rotator cuff surgery.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci considers DT Kyle Williams' roster spot "extremely vulnerable."

Especially if the Bills keep Tyrod Taylor, they will have to make some cap-saving moves. Turning 34 in June, Williams carries an $8.3 million cap number and would save the Bills $6.8 million if released. Williams would make a lot of sense in Philadelphia as a replacement for impending free agent NT Bennie Logan. Williams had a monster year under Eagles DC Jim Schwartz with Buffalo in 2014, dominating as both an interior pass rusher and run defender.
