Kenny Stills (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Stills will be active and ready for his usual role against the Jets. Although he's coming off back-to-back impressive games, it's still hard to trust the rookie deep threat as more than a boom-or-bust WR4.

Dolphins second-year CB Jamar Taylor told the Idaho Statesman that he considered quitting football during his disappointing rookie season.

Last year's 54th overall pick, Taylor was part of a Jeff Ireland draft class that provided the team with next to nothing in 2013. Taylor only got on the field for 45 defensive snaps. "It was to the point last year I thought I was done playing football," he said. "I didn’t want to play anymore. I was out of it. Thank God for my girlfriend, my family, my pastors and God — because I made it through and kept working. I’m really looking forward to this year."

Saints exercised RE Cameron Jordan's fifth-year club option for 2015.

It's a no-brainer move for New Orleans, which now has Jordan under control for $8.4 million over the next two seasons. A 2013 breakout player, Jordan graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 3-4 end, behind only J.J. Watt, Calais Campbell, and Kyle Williams. Only Watt received better pass-rush marks. Turning 25 in July, Jordan has 20.5 sacks and five forced fumbles over the past two seasons.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed Monday that second-year TE Travis Kelce is "progressing well" from last year's microfracture knee surgery, and "doing everything" in the offseason conditioning program.

Kelce had the operation on his right knee last October. It was considered a "minor" version of microfracture surgery. Beat writer Adam Teicher expects the Chiefs to use Kelce as their primary "pass receiver at tight end" in his second season, with Anthony Fasano and Sean McGrath focusing on blocking. A Heath Miller-type talent, Kelce has 2014 breakout appeal. He could benefit statistically if the Chiefs use their first-round pick on a position other than wide receiver.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher is recovering from shoulder and sports-hernia operations.

According to coach Andy Reid, Fisher is "rehabbing and doing well." No other information about Fisher's operations was disclosed, but it appears he should be ready to roll for training camp. Per Reid, Fisher has also gained five pounds of "good weight" after getting tossed around a bit as a rookie right tackle. The No. 1 pick of last spring's draft will be the Chiefs' blindside protector this season.

LaMichael James is not with the 49ers as the offseason conditioning program opens this week.

James is training on his own in Texas despite having a $50,000 workout bonus in his contract. It's a statement move as he pushes for a trade or release. James has totaled 39 carries and five catches in his two NFL seasons and now finds himself fourth on the depth chart. He's hoping to get a fresh start elsewhere.

ILB Rolando McClain is retiring from football again.

McClain showed up late for a conditioning test with the Ravens last Tuesday and then failed it. "If football made me complete I would play," he said in a text to ESPN. "But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. ... I'm done." McClain, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2010 draft, played in 41 career games. He's just 24 years old.

Fox Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Raiders will waive Terrelle Pryor on Monday if they are unable to trade him this weekend.

Pryor only has one year and $705,000 left on his rookie contract, so there is a chance someone gives up a late-round pick for him. It is more likely he ends up being cut on Monday. Pryor only completed 57.4 of his passes and threw seven touchdowns to 11 interceptions in nine starts last season. If cut, Pryor has a good shot to latch on with another team as a project/camp quarterback.

ESPN's Mark Dominik suggested on NFL Insiders that Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel will "fall a little more than people think" in May's draft.

Dominik's thoughts are particularly interesting because he was GMing in the NFL as recently as this past January, and it's probably a safe bet that he still talks to a lot of people around the league. Dominik opined that Manziel could fall as far as the late first round, and suggested the Texans trading back into the latter part of the frame to acquire "Johnny Football." It's no secret that Texans owner Bob McNair is a big fan of Manziel's. Houston currently drafts at Nos. 1 and 33.

Saints re-signed WR Robert Meachem to a one-year contract.

After one miserable season in San Diego, Meachem returned to New Orleans in 2013 to catch 16 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns as a situational deep threat. Entering his age-30 season, Meachem will try and fill that role again in 2014 but should face competition from Joe Morgan and a rookie.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are not planning to release embattled OLB Aldon Smith.

However, RapSheet believes Smith will begin the year suspended, and potentially even in jail. Smith was already due to appear in court on April 29 on gun and DUI charges before his bizarre Sunday arrest for making a bomb threat at LAX. It's pretty safe to assume Smith won't be appearing in all 16 games this season.

TMZ reports Donovan McNabb was arrested for DUI in January, and agreed to serve one day in jail as part of a plea agreement.

That explains the mugshot, but doesn't explain how the news was kept under wraps for three months. It's also unclear if the matter is resolved or ongoing. Out of the league since 2011, McNabb officially retired in September. It's his first-known brush with the law.
