FOX 29 Philly's Howard Eskin is "hearing" Nick Foles (concussion) will return to practice on Tuesday and is "likely" to start in Week 9 against the Raiders.

Foles hadn't been cleared to practice as of Sunday afternoon, but he's ostensibly taken steps forward since in the NFL's protocol testing. He'd be a much better option than overwhelmed rookie Matt Barkley. Michael Vick is out indefinitely with a potentially severe hamstring injury. Foles faceplanted in Week 7, but has otherwise consistently moved the Eagles' offense when under center. He'll be a QB2 with some upside if he gets the nod from Chip Kelly against Oakland.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL is considering discipline for Tom Brady as a result of "DeflateGate."

The Ted Wells Report paints an ugly picture for Brady and equipment personnel Jim McNally and John Jastremski, who are also facing discipline from the league. Meanwhile, it appears coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft will skate free. It's possible Brady will be watching Week 1 on his couch with LeGarrette Blount, who was suspended for one game earlier this offseason.

Bears signed No. 7 overall pick WR Kevin White to a four-year contract.

As is the case with all first-rounders, the deal comes with a fifth-year team option. White will replace Brandon Marshall in the starting lineup opposite Alshon Jeffery, keeping the "Twin Towers" effect in place for Jay Cutler. Eddie Royal will man the slot, with Marquess Wilson holding on as the No. 4 receiver. White can work at all three levels of the field and has immediate 1,000-yard upside.

Ted Wells released his "DeflateGate" report Wednesday and found it's "more probable than not" that the Patriots manipulated the footballs in the AFC Championship game.

"It is more probable than not that Patriots personnel participated in violations of the Playing Rules and were involved in a deliberate effort to circumvent the rules," Wells concluded. "In particular, we have concluded that it is more probable than not that Jim McNally [the Officials Locker Room attendant for the Patriots] and John Jastremski [an equipment assistant for the Patriots] participated in a deliberate effort to release air from Patriots game balls after the balls were examined by the referee. Based on the evidence, it also is our view that it is more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities." Brady doesn't come out well in the 243-page report, but Patriots higher-ups like coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft may have been unaware of the wrongdoings. It's now up to the NFL to hand out discipline.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel considers Jeff Janis the Packers' No. 4 receiver.

Janis' breakout potential took a hit when the Packers re-signed Randall Cobb, relegating Davante Adams to third-receiver duties and Janis to No. 4. Still, the paper slots him ahead of Jared Abbrederis and third-round pick Ty Montgomery. With Jordy Nelson coming off hip surgery, we wouldn't totally rule out Janis making some 2015 noise if he keeps the fourth-receiver job into Week 1.

Chiefs waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

The Chiefs didn't draft a signal caller, but decided their quarterback room was too full. Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray now comprise Andy Reid's top four. Pryor's stay with the team lasted all of 42 days. Pryor is less than two years removed from starting nine games for the Raiders, but like Tim Tebow, his lack of passing skills is shutting doors faster than they can open.

Cardinals TE John Carlson is retiring after seven years in the NFL.

One week shy of his 31st birthday, Carlson had one year left on his contract. "After much thought and consideration, my wife Danielle and I know that this is best decision for us," Carlson said in a statement. He did not elaborate on his reasoning, but Carlson has a long and scary history of concussions. It was undoubtedly a factor in hanging up his cleats. Carlson retires with 210 catches for 2,256 yards and 15 touchdowns. He posted a 33/350/1 receiving line last season. The Cardinals have a crater at tight end.

Jameis Winston is reportedly "pushing hard" for LSU T/G La'El Collins to join the Buccaneers.

Better than both Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet, Collins would be a huge addition to Tampa Bay's roster. Coach Lovie Smith also has a long track record of taking chances on players with "off-field concerns," although we're not sure there are even any off-field concerns with Collins. Per Yahoo's Rand Getlin, Winston has called Collins "multiple times" in the last 24 hours.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution projects Tevin Coleman as 1A on the depth chart and Devonta Freeman as 1B.

Coleman, the third-round rookie out of Indiana, brings superior physical skills to the table. The diminutive Freeman will remain in the mix as a change-of-pace option and potential third-down back. Homerun hitter Antone Smith also figures to get some chances. But as long as Coleman keeps his nose in front of this committee, he'll have serious upside thanks in large part to the presence of run-game guru Kyle Shanahan.

ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss says third-round RB David Johnson has a good shot at red-zone work.

Johnson doesn't play as big as his 6'1/224 frame would suggest, but he's still a better option in short yardage than featherweight Andre Ellington. Johnson is also far more talented than Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams. So even though Ellington is fully expected to retain his starting gig and remain a focal point of the offense, Johnson will have value as a backup to an injury-prone player and a candidate for both inside running and goal-line work.

Coach Rex Ryan had dinner with LSU T/G La'El Collins in Baton Rouge, La. on Monday.

Without a first-round pick over the weekend, the Bills could hit a grand slam by signing Collins. He was viewed as a mid-first-round pick -- the Bills would have picked 19th had they not dealt their pick to the Browns -- before Collins got wrapped up in a murder investigation, even though he isn't viewed as a suspect. If this comes down to recruiting, there may not be a better head coach at it than Ryan. Collins is ready to start day one in the NFL at either tackle or guard.
May 4 - 10:20 PM

Speaking Monday, coach Mike Pettine said it's "fair to say" Josh McCown will open training camp as the Browns' starting quarterback.

This comes as no surprise. McCown received $6.25 million guaranteed in the offseason, and Johnny Manziel just got out of rehab last month. After the Browns failed to draft a quarterback over the weekend, it further cemented McCown's place atop the depth chart. However, if McCown looks like the Buccaneer version of himself rather than the Bear, Manziel will make 2015 starts.
