Mike Munchak's refusal to make mass changes to his coaching staff is the reason he was fired by the Titans Saturday.

Munchak was offered a chance to return with a contract extension, but the Titans' brass wanted an entire new set of coaches working with him. He would have had to not only can his best friends in OL coach Bruce Matthews and LBs coach Chet Parlavecchio, but also OC Dowell Loggains and DC Jerry Gray. "I can't fire someone when I don't believe they should be fired. Firing someone is awful. Too many people were going to be affected," Munchak said. Everything will come up roses for Munchak if he can land the Penn State job. He was born in Scranton, PA, played his college ball for Joe Paterno and has been a huge supporter of the program ever since.

The Kansas City Star expects Spencer Ware to return as the Chiefs' starting running back.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher previously projected rookie Kareem Hunt as the team's likely leader in 2017 rushing attempts and running back catches. Ware has averaged 4.63 yards per carry and 11.6 yards per reception over the past two seasons, however, and the Chiefs shouldn't be in any hurry to pull Ware off the field. This will be a camp battle to monitor closely.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase suggested Jay Ajayi could see as many as 350 carries this season.

This assumes his health cooperates, of course, and that the Dolphins lead on the scoreboard enough to feed Ajayi the nearly 22 carries per week required to approach 350 attempts. Regardless, it's clear the Dolphins' offense is now built around Ajayi and not on Ryan Tannehill's arm. "I'm ready for it," Ajayi said when asked about his feature back usage. "I prepare myself every season to take a huge workload and be able to carry the team, and I think I'm ready for that." Ajayi is one of the highest-upside running back picks in the second round.

Cowboys RBs coach Gary Brown insisted Wednesday that Ezekiel Elliott does not have a concussion.

Elliott is sitting out OTAs after suffering a head injury in a Sunday night car accident. The Cowboys claim he merely took a "hit to the head," and isn't concussed. He is reportedly being held out of practice as a "precaution." Elliott is expected to resume practicing next Tuesday. Strangely, Zeke has been involved in two automobile accidents already this year.

Browns hired former Colts GM Ryan Grigson as Senior Personnel Executive.

Grigson was fired in January after a disastrous five years with the Colts. He's reuniting with VP of Player Personnel Andrew Berry, over whom Grigson was the boss in Indy. The Browns had an opening after national scout Lake Dawson left for Buffalo. While his hire will undoubtedly be poorly received, Grigson adds a veteran scouting presence to an unproven front office.

Patriots signed WR Andrew Hawkins to a one-year contract.

Hawkins says he left money on the table in order to win a championship with the Patriots. Hawkins played a minor role with Cleveland over the last three years, and only finished with 33 catches in 2016. A slot man-only, the 31-year-old has his work cut out to make the Patriots' 53-man roster. Hawkins would likely have to outplay Danny Amendola in training camp to do so.

The Cowboys are holding Ezekiel Elliott out of OTAs after he suffered a head injury in a car accident.

It sounds like Zeke may have been concussed, but that isn't confirmed. Per Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' website, Elliott was the passenger in a "minor" accident on Sunday night. A report from Adam Schefter indicated Elliott's injury is not "significant," but it is significant enough that the Cowboys are holding him out of practice. Hopefully there will be more info soon.

Chargers first-round WR Mike Williams is not participating in OTAs after injuring his back in the first practice of rookie minicamp.

Coach Anthony Lynn is "hopeful" Williams will return next week, but it's not a given he'll be ready before June minicamp. Williams has been sidelined for a couple weeks now due to what the team is calling "tightness" in his back. In a deep receiver depth chart, Williams is missing crucial developmental time. He's no lock to open the year as a starter.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports RB Matt Jones will not report for Redskins OTAs.

Jones has nothing to gain by reporting for the voluntary workouts. He already knows he's out of the team's plans after being a healthy scratch much of last year and then seeing the team draft Samaje Perine to go with Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson, and Mack Brown. Jones likely hopes to get released or traded soon and will sit out the OTA sessions to prevent himself from some sort of injury.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks will work out Colin Kaepernick and other free agent quarterbacks Wednesday.

Last week, coach Pete Carroll said the team had expressed some interest in Kaepernick, and NFL Network's Mike Silver reported GM John Schneider "reached out" to Kap and the interest was "legit." Seattle will be the first team to get a firsthand look at Kaepernick since he and the 49ers parted ways back in March. The fit with the Seahawks seems perfect as Russell Wilson's backup.

Colts SS Clayton Geathers (neck) is uncertain for Week 1.

It was revealed last week that Geathers underwent neck surgery, but the nature of it wasn't clear. We now know Geathers was dealing with a bulging disc in his neck that required a "last resort" surgery. "I believe in a higher power, and I just pray about it," Geathers said. "Everything will work out." Neck issues are never a certainty to heal, so this is definitely a big concern for the Colts. Geathers was one of the few bright spots on Indy's defense last year as a big-hitting maven against the run. 2016 second-rounder T.J. Green and first-round rookie Malik Hooker opened OTAs as the Colts' starting safeties.

The Kansas City Star reports third-round Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has "already impressed with his short-area burst and balance."

Reporter Terez Paylor's observation comes four days after ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher predicted Hunt would both lead the Chiefs in rushing and lead the backfield in receptions. Hunt has a legitimate stumbling block in Spencer Ware, but the highest back ever drafted by Andy Reid in Kansas City, he's going to get a chance to make his mark as a rookie.
