Coach Andy Reid said OLB Tamba Hali (ankle) has a "good chance" to play in Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Hali won't practice Wednesday, but the sprain he sustained against the Chargers last week is obviously slight. It's huge news for the Chiefs if they're going to have any prayer of slowing down Peyton Manning Sunday. Fellow edge rusher Justin Houston was undergoing his elbow MRI Wednesday afternoon and is unlikely to suit up.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy insisted Saturday that Ty Montgomery is still the team's starting running back.

This comes after the Packers added three running backs in the draft including fourth-rounder Jamaal Williams from BYU. Montgomery made a surprisingly smooth transition from receiver to running back last year, averaging a robust 5.9 yards per carry while leading the Packers with 457 rushing yards. Despite this, Montgomery only topped 10 carries in a game once and will probably work in tandem with Christine Michael and some combination of the running backs Green Bay just drafted.

Ryan Mathews (neck surgery) has been cleared to resume working out.

Mathews has been considered a candidate for release, but the Eagles weren't overly aggressive at running back in the draft, adding only fourth-rounder Donnel Pumphrey. Mathews' roster spot appears safe for the time being. The oft-injured back will be babied through the offseason program, but seems like he will be ready for camp.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports the Jets are still shopping DE Sheldon Richardson.

The Jets had discussions with the Cowboys and Redskins during the draft but both teams balked at having to pay Richardson's fully guaranteed $8.1 million salary. Per Mehta, the Jets have lowered their asking price and will continue to entertain trade offers for Richardson as he enters his walk year. Mehta is hearing there's a "50-50" chance he'll be dealt this summer.

Broncos selected Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly with the No. 253 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

This year's Mr. Irrelevant, Kelly (6’2/224) arrived at Clemson as a top-five quarterback recruit only to tear his left ACL as a freshman and clash with coaches, resulting in his ouster from the program. Kelly paid his dues at JUCO, then started for two years at Ole Miss, posting a 50:21 TD-to-INT ratio, 63.9% completion rate, and 8.5 YPA across 22 games, adding 15 rushing scores. As a Rebel, Kelly encountered several more off-field issues and tore his right ACL last November, then underwent surgery on his throwing wrist before the draft. Kelly will redshirt his rookie season. Still an intriguing long-term prospect, Kelly has drawn Brett Favre comparisons for his elite arm talent, toughness, and playmaking ability. While very much a project, Kelly has starter upside if he can get his head on straight.

Devin Smith will miss the 2017 season after suffering a torn ACL.

Sigh. A tantalizing prospect coming out of Ohio State, Smith has so far been limited to just 14 games in two seasons and has rarely taken the field at full strength. This is Smith's second ACL tear since arriving as a second-round pick in 2015. With Smith unavailable, Josh McCown will open the season throwing to Eric Decker (who is coming off shoulder and hip surgeries), Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson. It could be a long year for Gang Green.

Lions selected Miami QB Brad Kaaya with the No. 215 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Kaaya (6’4/214) turned pro as a true junior after making 38 starts at The U, compiling a 19-19 career record with a pedestrian 60.6% completion rate, 8.15 YPA, and 69:24 TD-to-INT ratio. A timing-and-rhythm passer who played in a pro-style offense at Miami, Kaaya’s tape reveals sub-par arm strength and ball location. Kaaya also showed a tendency to panic under duress, persistently falling into back-foot throws. A mechanical pocket passer lacking standout physical traits, Kaaya’s plus smarts (34 Wonderlic score), football IQ, and intangibles are his calling cards. He’s an NFL backup.

Vikings selected Virginia Tech WR/TE Bucky Hodges with the No. 201 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Hodges (6’6/257) turned pro as a redshirt junior after starting 37 games at Virginia Tech, amassing a career 133-1,747-20 (13.1 YPR) receiving line. Recruited as a quarterback, Hodges has caught passes for only three years. He is a freaky athlete, compiling a 21-89-1 (4.2 YPC) rushing line in college and posting 95th-percentile SPARQ results at the Combine with 4.57 speed and incredible vertical (39") and broad (11’2") jumps. More wideout than traditional tight end, Hodges has a long way to go as an in-line player. Still learning the position, Hodges will struggle to earn early NFL snaps.

Bills selected Pittsburgh QB Nate Peterman with the No. 171 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Peterman (6’3/226) made 24 starts in two years at Pitt after transferring from Tennessee, finishing his career with a 60% completion rate and 47:17 TD-to-INT ratio. All told, he went 14-12 across 26 college starts. Peterman generated buzz at January’s Senior Bowl for his plus fundamentals. On tape, Peterman showed a quick release and consistent footwork but limited velocity and tossed vertical passes that tended to die at the end of their trajectory. Smart (33 Wonderlic score) and coachable, It’s not inconceivable that Peterman could become an Andy Dalton kind of player, but it’s unlikely. Brian Hoyer is probably a more realistic comparison.
Apr 29 - 3:16 PM

Jets selected Clemson TE Jordan Leggett with the No. 150 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Leggett (6’6/258) made 38 starts for the Tigers, tallying a 112-1,598-18 (14.3 YPR) receiving line and earning first-team All-ACC as both a junior and senior. PFF College charted Leggett with nine drops among 109 catchable targets over his final three years. A solid college receiving tight end whose NFL transition is questionable, Leggett was a poor run blocker on tape and has zero special teams experience. He was allegedly nicknamed "Lazy Leggett" at Clemson for poor work habits. At his Pro Day, Leggett ran 4.71 with passable vertical (33") and broad (9’11") jump numbers. Neither a run-game asset nor a dominant receiver, Leggett would do well to carve out a Jermaine Gresham-like career.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, free agent Jay Cutler had interest in playing for the Texans but the team wouldn't return his calls.

The ex-Bears quarterback has heard crickets since hitting the open market. Cutler had a visit lined up with the Jets about a month ago, but that meeting was cancelled after Gang Green signed Browns castoff Josh McCown to a one-year deal. Houston would have been an interesting landing spot for Cutler but instead the Texans addressed their quarterback need by trading up to draft Deshaun Watson with the No. 12 pick. The 34-year-old recently said he has no plans to retire but maybe he'll reconsider if teams keep giving him the cold shoulder.

Broncos selected Michigan TE Jake Butt with the No. 145 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Butt (6’6/246) made 37 starts for the Wolverines, recording a career 138-1,646-11 (11.9 YPR) receiving line and earning the 2016 Mackey Award as college football’s top tight end. Unfortunately, Butt tore his right ACL and meniscus in 2014 and re-tore the ACL in December’s Orange Bowl. When healthy, Butt is a traditional in-line tight end with reliable hands and adequate blocking ability. He profiles similarly to the current NFL version of Zach Ertz. Butt may be forced to "redshirt" his rookie year, but he has a chance to develop into a lower-end starter capable of staying on the field all three downs.
