Falcons re-signed DT Corey Peters to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Peters, 26 in June, is coming off his best pro season but unfortunately suffered a torn Achilles' in Week 16 and faces another 4-6 months of rehab. He's essentially betting on himself again with the one-year pact in hopes of securing a long-term deal next spring. Peters racked up a career-high 46 tackles and five sacks in 2013. The Falcons need to find him a partner at defensive tackle.

ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey wrote A.J. Green and Andy Dalton were "more in sync this spring than they have been during any offseason workout of their career."

Two of the Bengals' most valuable players performing well in non-contact work isn't much of a story, but it's worth noting because Dalton and Green may have to do more individual heavy lifting this year. Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu are gone, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) is not considered likely to be ready for Week 1. If Green stays healthy, he should reset his career high in targets.

According to ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey, second-year UDFA Jake Kumerow dropped only one pass during spring practices that were open to the media.

Harvey says OTAs and minicamp "help(ed) solidify (Kumerow's) stature as a true possession receiver." If Brandon LaFell performs anywhere near as poorly as he did last season in New England, Kumerow could become someone to watch. Kumerow stands 6-foot-4 1/2, 209 and ran a respectable 4.54 forty-yard dash at his 2015 Pro Day. Kumerow played college football at Wisconsin-Whitewater.

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia expects Mike Gillislee to be the Bills' No. 2 running back during Karlos Williams' four-game suspension.

And Gillislee could be the Bills' No. 2 back even longer than that if Williams doesn't come back in shape. Even if Buffalo signs a veteran like Reggie Bush, Buscaglia thinks Gillislee is the handcuff to LeSean McCoy. In such a run-heavy offense, it isn't out of the question that Gillislee could have some early-season flex value. Last year's Bills averaged nearly 32 rushing attempts per game.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn hints third-year WR Jeff Janis might not be a lock for the Packers' final 53.

Specifically about Janis and rookie Trevor Davis, McGinn wrote "it remains to be seen if speedsters Jeff Janis and Davis can make the team or win a role from scrimmage." We would consider Janis a lock to make the 53 on special teams production alone, but whether he earns an offensive role remains an open question despite last January's 7-145-2 breakout against Arizona. McGinn noted that the Packers' scouting staff has "downgraded (Janis) on the basis of straight-line athleticism, tendency to body catch and average ability to adjust."

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports Jordy Nelson's ACL recovery is "well ahead of the curve."

The Journal-Sentinel says Nelson is ahead of schedule "due in part to surgical advancements and his own strong will." Nelson said on a radio show last January that he might have been ready had the Packers made it to the Super Bowl. "He's a guy that sees a barrier and knocks it down," WRs coach Luke Getsy said. "Anybody would be a fool to say they wouldn't expect this guy to come back and be who everyone expects him to be." Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason last year.

Per ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett, Brandin Cooks "looks ready to explode" this season.

After a really slow start to last season, Cooks went nuts over the final nine games, catching eight touchdowns and topping 70 yards in six of those contests. Entering his third season, Cooks is still just 22 years old with plenty of room for growth. There's competition for targets in New Orleans, but playing half his games on the Superdome turf, Cooks is a good bet to finish with WR1 stats.

According to ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson, second-year WR Kevin White looked like a "beast" in spring practices.

This somewhat contradicts the Chicago Sun Times' Adam Jahns, who said White "looked like a work in progress" at OTAs, where he dropped too many passes. By all accounts, White fared much better at minicamp after knocking off the rust at OTAs and having Alshon Jeffery back opposite him. After missing his entire rookie year, White will be a fun player to watch in camp and preseason.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski believes Ryan Mathews is "not a great fit" for new coach Doug Pederson's offense.

Kempski wrote that Pederson "wants to be able to move his backs around to create mismatches ... in the passing game," and "that is not at all a strength of Mathews," who is functional in the passing game but more of a traditional I-formation back. After the Eagles put both DeMarco Murray and Mathews on the trade block this offseason, Kempski believes Mathews is the Eagles' No. 1 back only by default. Most Eagles writers anticipate a running back by committee approach. Kempski says to not rule out the team adding a veteran back in camp.

ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli doesn't expect first-rounder Will Fuller to be in the Week 1 starting lineup.

Ganguli expects the Texans to progressively bring Fuller along, much like they did last year with first-round CB Kevin Johnson. Johnson played roughly 60 percent of the snaps the first three weeks but didn't get his first start until Week 4. Fuller might see a similar pattern. He'll certainly play right out of the gates, probably in a deep-threat role, but Jaelen Strong and Cecil Shorts could open ahead of him on the depth chart. Strong had a tremendous offseason.

According to ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss, it "isn't a given" that LeGarrette Blount makes New England's 53-man roster.

Following the draft, Reiss tabbed Blount as a "winner", but that was before he missed all of the Patriots' spring practices with a hip injury. Blount initially injured his hip last December and landed on I.R. Re-signed to a modest one-year, $1 million deal, Blount won't be handed anything. The Patriots could be in the market for running back help when rosters are cut down this summer.

Appearing on WGR 550 Buffalo, ESPN's Louis Riddick said he's hearing Bills first-rounder Shaq Lawson (shoulder) "could miss at least half the season and maybe the whole season."

Riddick certainly has connections inside the league, but WGR 550 Buffalo's Sal Capaccio later heard from a source close to the team that the Bills aren't expecting Lawson to miss nearly that much time as he recovers from May shoulder surgery. His initial timetable was set at 5-6 months. Missing the first month to month-and-a-half of the season seems like a reasonable expectation. Anything more than eight games would be major disappointment.
