The Philadelphia Daily News reports impending free agent Michael Vick "very badly" wants to start in 2014.

Reporter Les Bowen expects Vick to move on from the Eagles. Vick will undoubtedly draw interest as a "bridge" starter from quarterback-needy teams, but won't have much room for error wherever he ends up. It's possible he won't find the market he's looking for, and returns to Philadelphia as Nick Foles' backup. Vick turns 34 in June.

Vikings extended coach Mike Zimmer's contract.

The terms were not announced. "There is no doubt Zimmer is going to be our coach for a long time," GM Rick Spielman said. It's a bit unusual for a third-year coach with zero playoff victories to already be getting an extension, but Zimmer has done an undeniably excellent job through two seasons. He's settled the defense and helped set a tone on offense. Zimmer is known for being fiery, but has been surprisingly calm and levelheaded as a head man. He's a born head coach.

Pro Football Talk reports Bears first-round OLB Leonard Floyd was carted off the practice field Thursday for "heat-related" reasons.

Coach John Fox said after practice that Floyd was "sick." Of course, we would have already known the injury was not serious if the Bears did not have a ridiculously restrictive policy on reporting practice injuries. Thankfully, it looks like Floyd will be fine.

Coach Hue Jackson expects to name his starting quarterback before the first preseason game.

Spoiler Alert: It will be Robert Griffin III, who is expected to get the vast majority of first-team reps despite reportedly being outplayed by Josh McCown during the offseason program. With Griffin seemingly locked in as the starter, the Browns could look to trade McCown during camp.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Josh Gordon is "starting with a clean slate."

"We certainly welcome him back. Will support him," Browns EVP Sashi Brown added. "For us it's about Josh wanting to make a change. We'll find out very quickly if he's serious." It sounds like Gordon will be given every opportunity to prove himself to the new coaching staff. As long as he keeps out of trouble, he should be on the field when first eligible Week 5.

Ravens fourth-round RB Kenneth Dixon limped off the practice field Thursday with a left leg injury, but he is expected to be fine.

Dixon landed awkwardly after being shoved out of bounds and had to be helped off the field. Coach John Harbaugh said the injury was just a "slight thing with the knee." There is a chance he is back on the field Friday.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports walk-year QB Tyrod Taylor and the Bills reaching a long-term agreement before the season "is a possibility."

Carucci reports the two sides are talking "relatively frequently" and have "open lines of communication." This is a surprising development after Taylor appeared resigned to playing out the season without an extension earlier this month. Taylor is set to earn $3 million in the final year of his deal.

Jets could decide to move on from Geno Smith or 2015 fourth-rounder Bryce Petty after re-signing Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Even with Fitz back in the fold, the Jets have questions at quarterback. Second-round pick Christian Hackenberg is guaranteed a roster spot, but he is unlikely to be ready for a backup role this year. Smith could serve as the backup, but keeping him would require New York to either cut Petty after just one season or retain four quarterbacks, which would hurt the depth at another position. Ultimately, we expect Petty to be the odd man out.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team would consider bringing in a veteran running back.

Gruden talked up the depth they already have, saying Chris Thompson "looked good" during the offseason and the team is "excited" about rookie Keith Marshall, but he acknowledged they could look to the free-agent market. Matt Jones is currently locked in as the starter, and now that Arian Foster has signed with the Dolphins, there are not any free agents of note who could come in and challenge his spot. Jones is shaping up as a workload RB2.

Redskins placed first-round WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') on the active/PUP.

Doctson can be activated at any time, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports his stay on the PUP will be "very short." Still, it is another blow to his chances of earning a big role as a rookie. Washington also placed LB Perry Riley (foot), LG Shawn Lauvao (foot/ankle), WR Reggie Diggs (knee), and TE Derek Carrier (knee) on the PUP.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chiefs unsigned franchise player Eric Berry is expected to skip most of the preseason.

Because Berry has yet to sign his one-year, $10.8 million tender, he could theoretically skip all of camp and the preseason, sign the tag right before Week 1, and collect his full 2016 salary. The Chiefs were never even close to signing Berry long term ahead of the July 15 deadline. The Chiefs are also expected to open the season without franchise pass rusher Justin Houston (ACL).

Citing "information gathered," Profootballtalk.com reports there's a "strong sense" in league circles that Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to win the appeal of his four-game suspension.

The popular theory as to Bell's defense is that he changed his cellphone number and therefore was not contacted by the NFL prior to a drug test. Bell thus missed the test and was hit with a four-game ban. That defense isn't going to fly because Bell needed to inform the NFL of the cellphone change, assuming there ever was one. There also have been reports Bell missed multiple drug tests, not just one. Fantasy owners should approach Bell as if he won't be available until Week 5. DeAngelo Williams should be Pittsburgh's workhorse back in Weeks 1-4.
