Raiders signed QB Trent Edwards, DL David Carter and DT Torell Troup to reserve/future contracts.

The signing says as much about the state of Edwards' career as it does the Raiders' roster. Released by the Bears in training camp, Edwards has attempted just two passes over the past three seasons. We would say there's no chance he earns a roster spot next summer, but anything is possible for a team that signed OT Alex Barron in 2013.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Colts are not expected to extend contract-year coach Chuck Pagano before the start of the season.

It's an interesting decision from Indy. Although we've often disapproved of Pagano's maneuverings, he's improved every year. He's adjusted (slowly) on offense, and had an overachieving defense two years running. The Colts have made the playoffs each of Pagano's three seasons at the helm, winning a game in two of them. It's yet another signal that owner Jim Irsay considers 2015 a Super Bowl-or-bust campaign. Pagano's first order of business is to stop getting blown out by Bill Belichick's Patriots.

CBS' Jason La Canfora gets the "strong sense" Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is "not getting past the second overall pick."

La Canfora spent the last few days around team executives at the annual spring meeting. "He's going second overall," said one GM who is paying attention to the Mariota market. "I don't know to which team, but he's going second overall." The Titans hold the No. 2 selection and have so many holes on a league-worst roster that a trade down makes sense. If they can't get the haul they want, staying put and installing Mariota ahead of Zach Mettenberger isn't a bad idea either. Meanwhile, the assumption continues that Tampa Bay will take Jameis Winston with the top pick.

Nebraska DE/OLB Randy Gregory admitted to NFL.com that he failed a drug test at February's Combine.

He tested positive for marijuana. "I blame myself," Gregory said. Even before learning of the flunked test, two executives told NFL.com that Gregory had concerning "off-the-field issues." Gregory claims he used to smoke marijuana to deal with anxiety, but has moved past it. "I don't wake up every day saying, I'd really love to go smoke," he said. "It's not a struggle for me every day (now), it really isn't. In the past, hell yeah, it's been a struggle. It really has been. Now, I'm focused on my dream." Gregory says he last smoked marijuana in December.

Speaking at the Owners' Meetings in Arizona, commissioner Roger Goodell said the league has "postponed" the expanded playoffs idea.

The idea will continue to be evaluated over the next year, but Goodell stressed scheduling issues and the importance of the regular seasons as factors. Also, the NFL sounds ready to change the extra point for the upcoming season. Mostly all owners are in favor of making the PAT more of a "football play." It's tentatively expected to be voted on at the next league meeting in May.

Coach Tom Coughlin suggested Victor Cruz (patellar tendon) could miss the start of the season.

Coughlin said the "goal" is for Cruz to be ready Week 1, but "if it doesn't happen, we just went through that" with Odell Beckham last year. (Beckham didn't play until October.) Patellar tendon tears require extremely long rehabs and are tougher to come back from than ACL injuries. With the Giants stocked at receiver with OBJ, Rueben Randle, Corey Washington, and Dwayne Harris, they could take it slow with Cruz. There's a chance he could begin the season on reserve/PUP.

Jordy Nelson is recovering from offseason hip surgery.

It was merely a cleanup operation and Nelson should be fine in 6-8 weeks, according to coach Mike McCarthy. If Nelson was hurt last season, he sure didn't play like it. He reeled in a team-record 1,519 receiving yards en route to his first All-Pro selection. We're not particularly worried about Nelson's re-draft stock. At the same time, now might be an opportunity to sell high on Nelson in Dynasty as he approaches his 30th birthday.

Coach Sean Payton said third-year TE Josh Hill is a player "we value a lot."

Speaking Wednesday, Payton talked up both Hill and veteran TE Ben Watson as players whose roles are going to expand with Jimmy Graham out of the picture. Hill's ADP is skyrocketing by the day, as he's proven to be a touchdown-scorer in very limited opportunities during his first two seasons. He has TE1 upside, but is also a candidate to be overdrafted by the end of summer.

Coach Mike Zimmer said the Vikings "have no plans" to trade Adrian Peterson.

"We fully expect him to be here," Zimmer continued. "It's no different." It's the same tune the Vikings decision makers have been singing all offseason. The reality for Peterson is that the Vikings hold all of the cards. None of his salary is due until Week 1 and they have the cap room to carry him.

Coach Jack Del Rio confirmed he expects Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete for the Raiders' starting running back job.

Del Rio stressed the word "compete" to Richardson when he signed with Oakland. Murray is in the driver's seat and should really run circles around Richardson if given a fair shake. But it's a bit concerning that the Raiders were so eager to add a back, first chasing DeMarco Murray before settling for T-Rich. Working in Latavius' favor is the fact that T-Rich has been one of the worst runners in the league the past two seasons.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Adrian Peterson's player rep met with the Vikings on Monday, but that there was "no resolution."

The sides are mired in stalemate. Peterson is desperate to get out, while the Vikes at least want to maintain the appearance they want him back. Perhaps it's to up their leverage in potential trade talks, though the rhetoric has been so fierce that it appears Minny genuinely wants to keep its franchise runner. The conventional wisdom is that Peterson has no leverage, but players of his ilk have a good chance at getting their way if they really dig in.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport intimates the Chargers have left open the possibility of trading Philip Rivers.

The Chargers have made it clear they don't want to trade Rivers. "But what I have not heard, is we will not trade Rivers," were the words of Rapsheet on Path to the Draft. It may seem like a stretch, but general managers deal in this sort of doublespeak all the time. It's possible Tom Telesco has deliberately left himself some wiggle room in the event his franchise signal caller is shipped out. Although it's hard to picture Rivers in another uniform, his public comments on his Chargers future were far more direct than we're used to hearing from players.
