Eagles beat reporter Tim McManus reports DeSean Jackson believes he "will not be back" in Philadelphia for 2014.

McManus reported this after speaking to "two sources close to DeSean." Jackson clearly seems to be on the trade block after a Charlotte Observer report early Friday claimed the Eagles had "reached out" to the Panthers to gauge their interest in the 27-year-old wideout. Trading Jackson will be difficult due to his $10.7 million in scheduled salary and bonuses, but he's an explosive playmaker who will generate interest. In his first season under Chip Kelly, D-Jax set career highs in catches (82) and receiving yards (1,332), scoring nine touchdowns.

Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Panthers GM Dave Gettleman confirmed Cam Newton (ankle surgery) is unlikely to practice before training camp.

Gettleman's comments are in line with Newton's four-month timeline, so it's not a surprise. Even with the Panthers remaking their offensive line and receiver corps, they have no incentive to rush their franchise player's recovery. Newton will be ready to rock for Week 1.

Speaking Tuesday, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley reiterated that Toby Gerhart will likely see a starter's workload.

"He has the ability to play all three downs," Bradley said. "If he’s a guy that is carrying it 15-16 times and with third down reps, 18 times. That’s feasible. A strong possibility." From his contract ($4.5 million guaranteed) to his coach's comments, it's clear Gerhart will enter Week 1 atop the depth chart. Despite his grinding nature as a runner, Gerhart will have RB2 upside for fantasy purposes.

Rams agreed to terms with DT Alex Carrington, formerly of the Bills, on a one-year contract.

A versatile lineman, Carrington was limited to three games and 171 snaps by a torn quad last season. He'll provide an interior presence in St. Louis, creating pressure between ends Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Three months shy of his 27th birthday, Carrington fortifies a Rams defensive line that needs more pass rush. Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford are run stoppers first.

Rams GM Les Snead said the team has a "better than 50 percent" chance of signing free agent Kenny Britt.

St. Louis was Britt's first visit of free agency. He then went to New England, Washington, and Buffalo. The Patriots have already said they won't sign Britt. The Rams give Britt his best opportunity to be a No. 1 receiver and potentially revive his career. Britt is expected to make a decision in the next couple days.

Bills owner Ralph Wilson died on Tuesday.

Wilson, 95, was the founder and owner of the Bills and the oldest owner in the NFL. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009. Wilson was truly one of the men who built the NFL. He was one of the founders of the American Football League, which merged with the NFL in 1970. With Wilson's passing, speculation about the Bills' future in Buffalo may become a hot topic.

Coach Marvin Lewis said at the NFL meetings that he envisions "second-year growth" from Giovani Bernard similar to Ray Rice's in Baltimore.

Lewis is a former Ravens assistant, and has faced Rice twice a year as Bengals head coach. Rice's carries ballooned from 107 as a rookie to 254 in his second year, and he caught 78 passes as a sophomore, finishing as the No. 4 overall fantasy running back. Bernard has similarities to Rice in his prime both in terms of size and skill set. Gio is a fantasy blowup candidate for 2014.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports DeSean Jackson texted and called a few teammates on Tuesday to inform them that he'll be back with the Eagles in 2014.

Early Tuesday morning, Jackson tweeted that he spoke with coach Chip Kelly: "Good to Talk to BIg Chip today !! Say or hear what ya want !!" It's reportedly the first time the two have spoken since the end of the season, and it appears the Eagles and/or Jackson may have had a change of heart regarding the situation in Philly. We doubt Jackson has agreed or will agree to a pay cut, but the Eagles, who are in win-now mode, may put up with their outspoken receiver for another season. Coach Kelly will speak with the media on Wednesday.

The Ravens and Jets were each awarded four 2014 compensatory draft picks at the league meetings in Orlando.

Compensatory picks began in 1996 as a means of "compensating" clubs for free-agent losses. Ozzie Newsome's Ravens have been awarded more picks (41) than any team in football, and this year tied the Jets for the most comp picks. Baltimore picked up an additional third-rounder, two fourth-rounders, and a fifth-rounder in exchange for "losing" Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe, Cary Williams, and Ed Reed in 2013 free agency. Put simply, that is robbery by Newsome.

Lions signed SS James Ihedigbo, formerly of the Ravens, to a two-year contract.

Ihedigbo replaces Louis Delmas next to Glover Quin on Detroit's back end. He's coming off a career year of 101 tackles and the first three interceptions of Ihedigbo's seven-year career. The 30-year-old reunites with DC Teryl Austin, Baltimore's DBs coach the past two seasons. Ihedigbo is a strong leader and can play special teams. He's typically been a liability in pass coverage.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports free agent Mark Sanchez plans to sign with the Eagles.

Sanchez would be choosing Philly over the Rams, who expressed interest in him at the league meetings. With Chip Kelly's Eagles, Sanchez would replace Michael Vick as Nick Foles' primary backup, keeping Matt Barkley on the third string. Still only 27, Sanchez would do well to land with an offensive mastermind surrounded by high-end weapons. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed Monday the Eagles "will take a hard look" at Sanchez, and are currently having their team doctors check Sanchez's medicals following his 2013 shoulder injury.

In addition to requesting his release, the Boston Herald reports an "angry" Vince Wilfork cleaned out his locker and "ripped his name plate off his locker stall" after the Patriots approached him about reworking his contract.

At the time, at least, Wilfork "seemed convinced" he was done in New England. "I sure hope Vince will be with us next year," owner Bob Kraft stated at the NFL league meetings on Monday. Kraft was noncommittal on Wilfork's Patriots future, and it's unclear where negotiations currently stand. "We have to put a team together of over 50 people," Kraft said. "We have a salary cap. In the end, it’s about both parties feeling it’s a good transaction and it’s a win-win. I think that’s what we’re both shooting for."
