Latest Headlines

The first forecast for Super Bowl Sunday has been released, and it's currently calling for a high of 35 degrees and a 30 percent chance of snow.

According to Weather.com, snow showers are possible and temperatures will range from 25 to 35 degrees. The Broncos and Seahawks will kick off at 6:30 PM ET, so they'd likely be playing in temperatures in the 20s. Wind isn't expected to be a factor; it's projected to be blowing around 8 MPH. Of course, we're ten days away from the big game, which leaves plenty of time for change. The NFL has previously said that if a winter storm is expected, the game could be moved to Saturday, Monday, or Tuesday. Worst-case scenario would be for Super Bowl to be pushed back to February 9. We're not at that point.

Marcus Mariota plans to play at 215 pounds this season.

Mariota came out of Oregon at 222 and is listed at that weight on the Titans' website. The team told him to bulk up to the 225-230 range this year, but Mariota instead opted to side with his personal trainer and instead cut weight. The thinking is that Mariota will be faster and more elusive to avoid hits, but 215 is borderline-fragile for an NFL quarterback and could make Mariota even more prone to injury if he does get squared up for a big hit by a defender. It will be interesting to see if the Titans force him to put on weight during camp.

CSN Philly's Reuben Frank expects Wendell Smallwood to have a "pretty significant role" with the Eagles this season.

Smallwood has been talked about as potentially needing a big camp to even make the team after the Eagles signed LeGarrette Blount and drafted Donnel Pumphrey, but Frank believes the team "really likes" Smallwood. Last year's fifth-rounder appeared to be the No. 4 back in the spring. However, there are roles to be carved out in this backfield, and Blount isn't going to be ridden hard like he was in New England. This likely will remain a committee. And an unreliable one at that. Blount and Darren Sproles are the only two being drafted in 12-team leagues right now.

Free agent Robert Griffin III will work out for the Chargers on Tuesday.

It will be RGIII's first known visit and workout since he was released by the Browns on March 10. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Griffin has been working out down in Florida with ex-Colts and Stanford OC Pep Hamilton, who also worked briefly with the Browns. The Bolts have Kellen Clemens currently as their backup.

The San Jose Mercury News' Jimmy Durkin suggests the Raiders could hold Marshawn Lynch under 200 carries.

Durkin believes Lynch equaling Latavius Murray's 195-carry total from last year "should suffice," even suggesting Lynch could end up with "perhaps less" if sophomores DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard earn increased roles. After Lynch took a year off from football, it's hard to imagine the Raiders suddenly forcing him back into 300-carry usage, particularly in an offense so explosive in the passing game. Lynch remains a health risk at age 31 after his body broke down in 2015, leading Lynch into a year-long "retirement." Lynch is one of the riskiest early-round fantasy picks on the board this year.

Gregg Rosenthal mentioned on the most recent Around the NFL podcast that he's heard Carlos Hyde could be a surprise training camp cut.

A former longtime Rotoworld editor, Rosenthal now writes for NFL.com, frequently appears on NFL Network, and has cultivated enough connections that what he's hearing is noteworthy. Since the 49ers' new regime took over, coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch have been outwardly clear that San Francisco's running back situation needs upgrading, whether by signing (Tim Hightower), trading for (Kapri Bibbs), and drafting (Joe Williams) backs or Shanahan's suggestion that Hyde has personal improvement to make. We still believe Hyde could fetch something via trade, even in a contract year at a devalued position. The Niners would probably be willing to part with Hyde for a fourth-round pick, if not less.

Greg Olsen will report to Panthers training camp on time Tuesday.

Olsen considered a holdout due to dissatisfaction with his contract, but the Panthers are doling out money now that Marty Hurney has replaced Dave Gettleman as GM. Their first order of business was extending RG Trai Turner, and Olsen is likely now a priority. It's believed so-far-failed contract talks with Olsen and WLB Thomas Davis were at the root of Gettleman's ouster.

Saints re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Willie Snead to a one-year, $615,000 contract.

As an exclusive rights free agent, Snead essentially had no real rights, and was forced to sign this minimum-salary tender in continued hopes the Saints will make a longer-term commitment in the future. Not yet 25 years old, Snead remains an underrated asset in Dynasty leagues. He has posted consecutive top-35 PPR receiver finishes and should see a potentially significant uptick in volume this year with Brandin Cooks gone to New England.

Broncos signed GM John Elway to a five-year extension through 2021.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal will make Elway the NFL's highest-paid general manager. The head of Denver's football operations since 2011, Elway has overseen five straight winning records amid heavy coaching and quarterback turnover, going from Tim Tebow to Peyton Manning and Trevor Siemian, as well as John Fox to Gary Kubiak and now Vance Joseph. Elway's drafts and free agent moves had spectacular results to begin his tenure, although his recent drafts haven't been quite as strong. Nevertheless, Elway is extremely respected in Denver and throughout the Broncos' organization. He's more than earned a multi-year rope while the Broncos determine if 2016 first-round QB Paxton Lynch can become a franchise solution.

Eagles signed TE Adam Zaruba.

Listed at 6-foot-4, 277, Zaruba is transitioning from Canadian rugby to big-league football as an obvious project. The 26-year-old from Vancouver worked out for the Eagles on Sunday and was signed to a non-guaranteed three-year deal the next day. Zaruba is entering a deep Philly tight end depth chart, where the Eagles have Brent Celek and Trey Burton backing up Zach Ertz.

Cole Beasley (hamstring) has been cleared for Cowboys training camp.

Beasley played through hamstring tendinitis in the second half of last season and missed all spring workouts, but the Cowboys never expressed significant concern with his health. He's now all systems go. Entering his age-28 season, Beasley was quick to establish a chain-moving rapport with Dak Prescott in 2016, drawing career highs in targets (98) and receptions (75).

Free agent CB Brandon Flowers will meet with the Cardinals on Wednesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter adds Flowers has "also been talking with the Patriots." Once among the league's most underrated corners, Flowers flamed out in San Diego while battling a multitude of concussions. He drew some interest from the Steelers in March, but nothing came of it. Flowers would compete for snaps opposite Patrick Peterson in Arizona. He would likely man slot corner between Stephon Gilmore and Malcolm Butler in Foxboro.
