Ravens re-signed TE Dennis Pitta to a five-year, $32 million contract.

The $6.4 million annual average puts Pitta in the top nine at his position, so this looks like a reasonable deal for both sides. Early last week, the Ravens and Pitta were reported to be "far apart." With Pitta locked up, GM Ozzie Newsome can now work on Eugene Monroe. Entering new OC Gary Kubiak's "tight end whisperer" offense, Pitta is a candidate for a major 2014 breakout. He's a more spry version of Owen Daniels. Turning 29 in March, Pitta should provide Baltimore with 2-3 seasons of 75-plus receptions as Joe Flacco's go-to chain-moving target. Pitta plays nearly 80 percent of his snaps at slot receiver. He'll be a TE1 to target in 2014 PPR fantasy leagues.

Cowboys OG Ronald Leary is skipping OTAs as he seeks a trade.

Playing under his one-year, $2.553 million restricted free agent tender, Leary wants out of Big D after spending 75 percent of 2015 as a healthy scratch. Leary was a starter in 2013-14, but fell behind talented rookie La'El Collins early last season. The Cowboys seem willing to move Leary, but executive Stephen Jones has said he won't be "given away." Leary is a $2.553 million redundancy for the Cowboys' dominant line. A trade is probably an inevitability.

The league has awarded the 2019-21 Super Bowls to Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles, respectively.

Atlanta and its new stadium beat out New Orleans for the right to host Super Bowl LIII. In our opinion, any decision that involves not playing a Super Bowl in New Orleans is a poor one. Miami and Los Angeles were the heavy favorites for the next two games. Rams owner Stan Kroenke continues to get his way after his years-long, and league-approved plan, to move his team from St. Louis.

Raiders DE/OLB Mario Edwards (neck) is participating in OTAs.

Edwards tweeted earlier this month that he had been fully cleared, and this confirms it. It's the best possible news after a late-2015 injury left his career in doubt. The issue revealed a genetic condition the 2015 second-rounder didn't know he was dealing with. Edwards had a strong rookie season, and could be a big part of the Raiders' on-the-rise front seven if he stays healthy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Tyler Eifert (ankle surgery) is "in jeopardy" for Week 1.

Eifert would basically have to have no snags in his rehab to be ready, and "no snags" has never been Eifert's health M.O. Eifert will undoubtedly miss the entire preseason, and likely spend the majority of camp on the active/PUP list. Barring a major setback, he should be able to avoid reserve/PUP, which would cost him six games.

Larry Fitzgerald has "no idea" if 2016 will be his final season.

Fitz has previously admitted this could be his final campaign, but was more coy on Tuesday. "Honestly, I have no idea," Fitz said. "I really don't look at it like that." Fitz averaged a career low 11.1 yards per reception last season, but it was largely by design. He worked underneath with Michael Floyd and John Brown doing damage downfield. Fitz was far less productive with Floyd at full health, but still posted a sparkling 109/1,215/9 line. Although he's going on 33, there's little doubt Fitz could physically play more than one season. The question is if the mental steam will remain.

Marcus Mariota has added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason, going from 210 to 225.

Mariota said he wants to be "sturdier." He's confident of maintaining his speed despite the added heft. Mariota suffered two MCL injuries as a rookie, and clearly believes he was too slight. Adding more weight adds more pressure to his joints, of course, but 225 pounds is far from crazy for a 6-foot-4 quarterback, even a running one. He was listed at 222 at the Combine. It shouldn't have an adverse effect on Mariota's play.

Le'Veon Bell (MCL, PCL) said he will be 100 percent when training camp begins.

He is participating in individual drills during OTAs. Players are usually overly optimistic about injuries, but Bell's confidence is better than the alternative. Even if he is eased into training camp, the assumption is Bell will be a full go by Week 1. With this injury sure to knock him down a few ADP pegs, Bell could end up being the best value of the first round.

No. 5 overall pick CB Jalen Ramsey is expected to miss six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee.

Considering timelines of 4-6 months were floated right after the injury was reported, six weeks might be the best possible outcome. Ramsey will miss the entire offseason program, but he should be ready to go for training camp. The Jaguars, who lost No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler to a torn ACL last May, can let out a huge sigh of relief.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler wrote "it really feels like" the Redskins plan to add another running back.

With Matt Jones, a seventh-round rookie with serious injury questions marks (Keith Marshall) and not much else at running back, it would make sense for the Redskins to dip into the market. Pierre Thomas spent time with Washington last season, but he is more of a passing-down option. Arian Foster would make the most sense, but he might not be the same player following an Achilles' tear from which he is still not fully recovered. Jones looks like the clear workhorse right now, but that could change if Washington brings in a veteran.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss reports Dion Lewis (ACL) is fully expected to be ready for Week 1.

Lewis tore his ACL on November 8. Reiss reports people close to Lewis believe he could be ready to play in a month. The Patriots will likely limit him throughout the offseason program and into training camp, but Lewis' availability for the regular season does not appear to be in doubt. Lewis tallied 622 total yards and four touchdowns in just seven games last season. His role should remain secure as New England's dynamic space/passing-down back.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said he expects Sammy Watkins (foot) to be ready for Week 1.

Watkins underwent surgery to repair a broken foot last month. Despite his optimism about the regular season, Whaley declined to put a timetable on Watkins' return, lending credence to the notion he will not be ready for training camp. The Bills brought free agent Andre Roberts in for a workout last week, and they will likely look to bring in some veteran bodies this summer.
