Dolphins signed G/C David Arkin.

Arkin was signed off the Cowboys' practice squad. He'll take the suspended Richie Incognito's roster spot, but not his starting job. Arkin has never appeared in an NFL game. He's just a depth signing.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said the team still does not know if suspended WR Martavis Bryant will be reinstated.

"We have no information. We have no idea if we’ll get information (before the draft) or not," Colbert said Monday. "We have to operate under the assumption that, until he is here, he is not here." Bryant has widely been expected to gain reinstatement, but Colbert is clearly not taking that for granted. Whether that means the Steelers are just being prudent or have been given a heads up remains to be seen. Either way, it will not be surprising if Pittsburgh invests an early-round pick on a pass catcher this week.

The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad reports Dolphins C Mike Pouncey underwent a "stem cell procedure within the past few weeks."

The operation is reportedly to blame for Pouncey being spotted on crutches Monday, and he is expected to shed them in the near future. A league source told Schad the center remains "on track" and has not suffered any setbacks. That may be true, but Pouncey's ability to get and stay healthy remains in serious question. The Dolphins will likely limit him throughout the offseason program and perhaps even training camp.

According to ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, the "expectation" is Mike Gillislee will "essentially fill LeGarrette Blount's role" in the Patriots' offense.

Blount led the NFL in rushing touchdowns (18) and finished second in the league in carries (299), so this would be a huge win for Gillislee's fantasy outlook. Reiss considers Gillislee, Rex Burkhead, and James White "locks" to make the roster, with Dion Lewis "rounding out the top four slots on the running back depth chart." Over the past two offseasons, the Patriots have pried Gillislee, Stephon Gilmore, and Chris Hogan from the division-rival Bills.

Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate expects Mark Ingram to remain the Saints' starter even if Adrian Peterson is signed.

At worst, both backs will have a role as Underhill notes the Saints rushed 404 times last season, and face an easier schedule this year, meaning they should have more rushing attempts in positive game script. Ingram's versatility will keep him heavily involved; Peterson never developed passing-game value as a receiver or pass blocker. Free agent loss Tim Hightower left behind 155 unaccounted-for touches, so the Saints were always going to add another back.

Bills declined to match RB Mike Gillislee's two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet, making Gillislee a New England Patriot.

Because Gillislee was a restricted free agent tendered at the original-round level, and was originally drafted in the fifth round, the Bills will get the Patriots' fifth-round pick (No. 163 overall). Albeit in limited duty behind a strong Bills run-blocking line and with a dual-threat quarterback to help free up running lanes, Gillislee was one of the most efficient per-play backs in football last season, averaging 5.71 yards per carry with nine all-purpose touchdowns. He will compete for snaps with Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead. James White is locked in as New England's primary passing-game specialist.

The Steelers have exercised ILB Ryan Shazier's fifth-year option for 2018.

Shazier will make $1.716 million this year and an $8.718 million salary in 2018. Still only 24 years old, Shazier has been one of the NFL's most dynamic sideline-to-sideline playmakers when healthy -- with an emphasis on when healthy. He has missed 14-of-48 games due to various injuries the past three seasons, and often been a liability when trying to play hurt. Still, exercising the option was an easy choice for Pittsburgh, which now has Shazier under control for a reasonable $10.43 million over the next two years.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints are "closing in" on a deal with free agent Adrian Peterson.

Per Rapsheet, the deal would pay Peterson $3 million "plus." It's a very strange fit on paper, but coach Sean Payton has had friction with Mark Ingram. Peterson and Ingram are redundant talents, though Ingram has become much more of a pass catcher in recent years. Peterson is a zero in the passing game, but a better goal-line finisher than Ingram. The situation would make for fantasy headaches, and an always-tedious backfield even harder to figure.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) remains on crutches.

Pouncey was spotted at Aaron Hernandez's funeral. Pouncey insisted in January he would be ready for the offseason program. The Miami Herald reports the target is Week 1. Pouncey's hip issues are severe, but have yet to throw his career into question. Pouncey was limited to five games last season, and hasn't appeared in all 16 since 2012.

Richard Sherman reported to Seahawks voluntary workouts on Monday.

Per GM John Schneider, Sherman also had a "great meeting" with coach Pete Carroll last week. Sherman was absent from the first week of voluntary workouts, but it didn't appear related to bad blood over trade talks. Both sides have been frank about a potential deal, at times appearing to welcome the idea, but it appears Sherman will remain in Seattle for 2017. Schneider said the organization has "kind of moved past" the possibility.

Michigan LB/S Jabrill Peppers failed his Combine drug test.

Peppers had a diluted sample, which counts as a failed test. It puts him in the same boat as Alabama ILB Reuben Foster, who also turned in a diluted sample. It's especially bad news for Peppers, as he was already swimming against the first round current. The college star lacks a clear position.

Free agent OT Jake Long announced his retirement after nine seasons.

As we head into draft week, Long, the No. 1 overall pick in 2008, hangs up his cleats. As soon as he stepped on the field, Long was one of the premier left tackles in the sport. He made the Pro Bowl each of his first four seasons and was named a first-team All Pro in 2010. In 2011, injuries started to ruin Long's career. He suffered a back injury, snapping a 61-game starting streak, then tore his biceps later in the year. Long signed a four-year deal with the Rams in 2013 and suffered his second torn ACL in 2014. He made pit stops with the Falcons and Vikings in 2015 and 2016 and suffered a torn Achilles' last year with Minnesota, effectively ending his career.
