When asked about his running back situation, Colts GM Ryan Grigson said "the best players play."

Grigson wasn't singling out Trent Richardson, he was simply talking up a Seahawks-esque mantra for his entire team. Still, if Vick Ballard (torn ACL) can make it back in time for training camp he'll have a shot to earn carries -- especially if free agent Donald Brown walks. "Iron sharp as iron. We're going to try to have the most competition at each position group and whoever wins that spot is going to be the starter," he said. Ballard has a career 3.91 YPC average while T-Rich was at 2.91 in 14 games with the Colts last season.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said Wednesday that he is "praying" for Dennis Pitta to return from his second hip dislocation.

The notion that the Ravens have resorted to "praying" for Pitta probably isn't a great sign. Bisciotti heaped some praise on super sleeper Crockett Gillmore on Wednesday, and said he anticipates the Ravens using a third- or fourth-round pick at tight end. They are also flirting with Rob Housler.

Texans signed WR Nate Washington, formerly of the Titans.

Washington, 32 in August, posted a 40-647-2 line for the Titans last season, operating as the No. 2/3 receiver. The Texans' depth chart is unsettled behind unquestioned No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins, with Cecil Shorts the early favorite for No. 2 duties, but it's a position Houston will likely address in the draft. If he makes the team, Washington should fill a situational deep threat role.

Broncos acquired C Gino Gradkowski and a 2016 fifth-round pick from the Ravens in exchange for a 2016 fourth-round pick.

Gradkowski, the 98th pick in the 2012 draft, started all 16 games for the Ravens in 2013 but was PFF's worst center. He played just 10 snaps last season after losing his job to Jeremy Zuttah. Ex-Ravens OC Gary Kubiak -- now Denver's head coach -- must have liked what he saw from Gradkowski in practice. He's the leader in the clubhouse to take over as the Broncos' starting center.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports Tony Romo has agreed to restructure his contract, clearing "nearly" $13 million in cap space for the Cowboys.

Prior to this move, the Cowboys were right up against the cap with ILB Rolando McClain's new one-year, $3 million deal set to hit the books. Romo is likely converting most of his $17 million salary into a "signing" bonus. Romo previously said he'd take a pay cut so Dallas could re-sign DeMarco Murray. Maybe he'd do the same for an Adrian Peterson addition, though that seems unlikely at this point.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Eagles are "willing to trade" slot CB Brandon Boykin.

Boykin is another Andy Reid carryover, and coach Chip Kelly is intent on building the Eagles his way. The former fourth-round pick is just 24 and has finished second and 19th, respectively, in PFF's cornerback rankings each of the past two seasons. At 5'10/185, he's a slot corner-only, but a good one. Salguero mentions the Dolphins as a team that would have interest in Boykin.

Cowboys re-signed MLB Rolando McClain to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Another $1 million is available through incentives. McClain, the former No. 8 overall pick and twice-retired 25-year-old, had a big season for the Cowboys in 2014. He graded out as PFF's No. 8 inside linebacker, showing well both against the run and in pass coverage. McClain will man the middle for Dallas this season, allowing Sean Lee to kick outside to the WILL spot.

Bears signed RB Jacquizz Rodgers, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year contract.

A four-year veteran, Rodgers owns a lousy 3.65 YPC for his career, but has caught 155 passes in 63 games. He also holds his own as a blocker despite standing in at just 5-foot-6, 196 pounds. Rodgers will start out as the No. 3 back behind Matt Forte and Ka'Deem Carey, but could carve out a role in the Bears' passing game. He's unlikely to hold any value in PPR leagues.

Ravens agreed to terms with QB Matt Schaub, formerly of the Raiders, on a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's low-end backup money. The rapidly-declining veteran was supposedly also drawing interest from the Cowboys, Titans and Falcons. Going on 34, Schaub was picked twice in 10 attempts for the Raiders last season, also taking three sacks. Arguably the league's worst starter in 2013, Schaub will be a shaky backup for Joe Flacco, but more experienced than Tyrod Taylor. Flacco hasn't missed a game in seven NFL seasons, a trend the Ravens are obviously counting on to continue for 2015.

XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki reports free agent Rob Housler is drawing interest from the Bengals as well as the Ravens, and would like to make a decision "by the end of the week."

The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday morning that there was "mutual interest" between Baltimore and the ex-Cardinal. Housler offers legit receiving upside, but was inconsistent in a Cardinals offense that doesn't feature tight ends catching passes.
Mar 31 - 1:43 PM

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is visiting the Dolphins Tuesday.

Ridley underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL on Nov. 18, depressing his free agency pricetag toward a one year "prove it" kind of contract. A bunch of teams would be wise to poke around, even ones that have plus starters like Lamar Miller. When healthy and holding onto the football, the 220-pound Ridley is both powerful and quick in a complementary early-down/goal-line role. The Cowboys and Vikings (if they move Adrian Peterson) are other possible landing spots.
Mar 31 - 8:25 AM

Eagles agreed to terms with WR Miles Austin, formerly of the Browns, on a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

Another $700,000 is available through incentives. We'd have to think there's little guaranteed money here, but who knows what coach Chip Kelly sees in Austin. The soon-to-be 31-year-old posted a pedestrian 47-568-3 line across 15 games for Cleveland last season and has no separation skills after numerous hamstring injuries. He'll likely back up all three spots in Philly.
