ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears are shopping RE Julius Peppers for trade.

It's the likely certain precursor to Peppers' release. Peppers' 2014 salary cap number is nearly $20 million, and Chicago needs that space to be active in free agency as well as sign its rookie class. At this point, GM Phil Emery would probably accept a late seventh-round pick for Peppers, although he won't even get that. Expect Peppers to be dumped by Tuesday afternoon.

Bears released S Antrel Rolle.

Rolle, 33, lasted one season in Chicago, but appeared in just seven games for the Bears due to an ankle injury and sprained MCL. He was merely average when on the field for DC Vic Fangio. The Bears will move forward with second-year FS Adrian Amos and either fourth-round rookie SS Deon Bush or free-agent signee Omar Bolden. Rolle's release saves the Bears $2.7 million in camp room.

Browns EVP of football operations Sashi Brown claims third-round QB Cody Kessler will get a chance to start.

"It's a competition," Brown said. "We'll let it play out." Although both Brown and coach Hue Jackson are openly smitten with Kessler, consider us deeply skeptical that he'll get a legitimate chance to start as a rookie. Kessler is essentially a prototype game manager. He needs time to get up to NFL speed, and is best suited for clipboard duties in 2016, at least to begin the year. It will be a different story if Robert Griffin III hasn't made major strides on his final days in Washington.

Seahawks signed TCU QB Trevone Boykin.

Boykin (6'0/212) made 40 starts for the Horned Frogs, finishing his career as TCU's all-time leader in passing yards (10,728) and passing TDs (86) with a 61.2 completion percentage. He added 27 rushing scores and averaged 4.04 yards per carry. Boykin was a dynamic dual-threat college quarterback, but he is short, struggles with touch as a passer and was arrested for felony assault of an officer last December. Although Boykin was open to performing wide receiver drills before the draft, he lacks speed (4.77) and explosion (9'2" broad jump) for a full-time position switch. Boykin would do well to forge a Seneca Wallace-type career.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson says he's yet to have contact with Sam Bradford since the quarterbacks' trade request.

Pouting Sam remains inconsolable, even after the Broncos' selection of Payton Lynch took them off the board of potential suitors. The reality is, Bradford has nowhere to go, and will be in Philadelphia competing with Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel this season. The sooner he realizes that, the better. The Eagles could have handled the situation better, but Bradford is well compensated. This is life in the NFL for mediocre quarterbacks.

Bears signed QB Brian Hoyer to a one-year, $2 million contract.

It's an awful landing spot for Hoyer, as he'll only come into playing time if Jay Cutler gets hurt. Of course, Cutler has been rather injury prone in his career, so there's a decent chance Hoyer makes 2016 starts. It's simply surprising he ended up somewhere where there won't be a competition. Hoyer's market must have been really depressed. Hoyer is one of the league's better backups, but typically gets exposed after 5-6 starts.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said contract negotiations with contract-year QB Andrew Luck are "progressing well."

"It's a complicated contract," Irsay said. "It's one that has to work both ways to make sure we're able to field a great football team." Irsay has mentioned the Fourth of July as a soft deadline, and he still sees that as a reasonable goal. It would be an absolute shock if Luck did not have a new deal before training camp.

Titans selected Southern Miss CB Kalan Reed with the No. 253 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Reed (5'11/192) started three-plus years at Southern Miss, logging eight career interceptions and breaking a single-season school record for pass breakups (19) as a senior. A surprising Combine sub, Reed blazed 4.49 with a 41 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump at the Golden Eagles' Pro Day. Experienced in both zone and man coverage, Reed was slept on during the pre-draft phase but has NFL-starter-level traits. Reed offers more NFL potential than the usual Mr. Irrelevant.

Browns acquired CB Jamar Taylor and the No. 250 overall pick in the 2016 draft from the Dolphins in exchange for the No. 223 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Taylor was the 54th overall pick in the 2013 draft, but has been a big part of the problem on the back end of Miami's defense the past couple seasons. He's started nine games the past two years, but was Pro Football Focus' fifth-worst cover corner out of 118 qualifiers last season. In Cleveland, he'll get a fresh start and compete for a sub-package and special teams role.

Giants selected UCLA RB Paul Perkins with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Perkins (5'10/208) spent two years as the Bruins' feature back before turning pro, parlaying 622 carries into 3,491 yards (5.61 YPC) and 29 touchdowns, adding 80 receptions. His Combine metrics were solid-if-unspectacular, running 4.54 with a 32-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. A fundamentally-sound three-down back, Perkins combines darting quickness with exciting lateral moves and is an ultra-competitive, tough inside runner. A Devonta Freeman clone, Perkins is good enough to capitalize if given an extended NFL opportunity. New York is an excellent landing spot for Perkins to earn early-career chances in one of the league's most underwhelming running back corps.
Apr 30 - 2:26 PM

Bills selected Ohio State QB Cardale Jones with the No. 139 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Jones (6'5/253) played in 23 games at Ohio State, going 11-0 as a starter and finishing his career with a 61.9% completion rate, 8.60 YPA, and 15:7 TD-to-INT ratio. After a dominant 2014 playoff run for the Buckeyes, Jones returned to school to share time with J.T. Barrett. Although Jones was never a full-time college starter, he has a chance to become a better NFL player with a Culpepperian blend of size, athleticism, and arm strength. His deficiencies show up through inexperience-based fundamental flaws after attempting just 270 college passes. Jones' ceiling is high, but he could also flame out quickly. He's a classic boom-bust prospect.
Apr 30 - 2:05 PM

Broncos selected Utah RB Devontae Booker with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Booker (5'11/219) spent two seasons at Utah after a JUCO transfer, parlaying 560 carries into 2,773 yards (4.95 YPC) and 21 TDs. Also an adept receiver, Booker caught 80 passes in just 23 games. On tape, Booker showed a sensational aptitude for making himself skinny and fitting through cracks, as well as quick feet and run-finishing ability. Concerns include Booker's small hands (8 5/8"), advanced age -- he'll be a 24-year-old rookie -- and a torn meniscus that cut his final college season three games short. Ultimately, Booker teased an NFL-starter-quality skill set as a Ute and is a promising pro prospect.
