Jaguars re-signed exclusive rights free agent RT Austin Pasztor to a one-year, $570,000 contract.

Pasztor struggled in the running game as a 12-game starter last season, but was effective in pass pro and is penciled in as Jacksonville's starting right tackle as May's draft approaches. If the season began today, Luke Joeckel would protect Chad Henne's blind side with Pasztor at right tackle and Zane Beadles at left guard. The Jags need new starters at center and right guard.

According to TE Garrett Celek, Blaine Gabbert has been "definitely taking control" as the starting quarterback at 49ers' voluntary workouts.

"Whoever’s at quarterback needs to take control and be our leader out there. And he’s definitely doing that," Celek said. "I think he’s definitely developing more and more as the days go on." Gabbert is the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback at these very elementary workouts because Colin Kaepernick (thumb, knee, shoulder) remains on the shelf and isn't expected to be cleared until June 1. When Kap does gain clearance, he and Gabbert are expected to compete for the starting job. Gabbert is getting an early leg up in coach Chip Kelly's new offense.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie talked up fifth-round RB DeAndre Washington, calling him "more than just a third-down back; he's a complete back."

"He can pound it up in there," McKenzie continued. "When he gets out in space, he can make you look silly. He can catch the ball, but he can run between the tackles as well as well as bouncing it outside. We think he’s the total package as a runner." It's notable because the Raiders spent a good portion of the offseason talking about how they wanted to add to their backfield and get Latavius Murray some help/competition. Washington has been the only addition. He'll have a chance to carve out a significant role in year one.

Free agent CB Leon Hall will visit the Falcons.

Hall left his Giants visit without a deal. The Falcons drafted SS Keanu Neal in the first round, but still need a slot corner to play between Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford. Hall's market was slow to develop after undergoing offseason back surgery. Now that minicamp and OTAs are starting up, he should find a new team in relatively short order.

Bills signed franchise player LT Cordy Glenn to a five-year, $65 million contract.

The deal includes $36 million guaranteed, $26.5 million of which is "fully" guaranteed. That's the second most in history for a left tackle. The No. 41 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Glenn has manned the blindside since his rookie year, and developed into one of the league's better left tackles. Headed into his age-27 season, Glenn hasn't missed a game since 2012. Locking Glenn up now allows the Bills to focus on long-term deals for Stephon Gilmore and Tyrod Taylor.
May 3 - 6:22 PM

Saints signed LT Terron Armstead to a five-year, $64.5 million extension through 2021.

He gets $25 million fully guaranteed at signing. The 2013 third-rounder was owed $705,000 in the final year of his rookie contract. Locking up Armstead became an offseason priority for the Saints after he emerged as one of the league's best tackles last season. Still only 25 (in July), Armstead graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 overall tackle in 2015.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel doesn't consider Davante Adams' roster spot a "sure thing" for 2016.

In breaking down the Pack's crowded receiver corps, reporter Tom Silverstein labels Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb as the only "sure things." We'd add Jeff Janis to that list. It would ultimately be surprising if Adams couldn't crack the 53-man roster, but he was one of the worst regularly-featured wideouts in the league last season, averaging a stunningly-bad 9.7 yards on 50 catches. Still only 23, Adams has youth and his 2014 draft position (No. 53 overall) working in his favor.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Raiders TE Clive Walford suffered a "big gash" on his knee in an ATV accident.

Caplan reports he suffered the injury a "while ago" and is expected to be "fine." Walford is still likely to miss the majority of the offseason program, but it sounds like the injury could have been worse. He should be ready for training camp. A third-round pick last year, Walford is a sophomore leap candidate.

Free agent CB Leon Hall (back) is visiting the Giants on Tuesday.

This is an odd one considering the Giants just spent the No. 10 overall pick on Eli Apple, gave Janoris Jenkins a huge deal, and also have Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the roster. A team can never have enough corners, however, and Hall remains one of the best slot defenders in the league. Hall is recovering from surgery to repair a "disc injury" in his back.
May 3 - 8:27 AM

The Jaguars declined LT Luke Joeckel's fifth-year option.

This was expected after Joeckel struggled mightily his first three seasons, and lost his starting job to free agent pickup Kelvin Beachum. Joeckel has not shown the ability to handle himself in an NFL running game, and has been pulverized in pass protection. He was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 draft. The No. 1 pick in that draft -- Chiefs LT Eric Fisher -- has been only slightly better.
May 2 - 4:14 PM

The Rams have exercised Tavon Austin's fifth-year team option for 2017.

They've done the same with MLB Alec Ogletree. Austin has never lived up to his billing as the No. 8 overall pick of the 2013 draft, but has steadily come on as a playmaker. He is dangerous with the ball in his hands. The option is worth over $12 million, something the Rams might very well decide is too much. Option years are guaranteed for injury only. Austin has been durable despite his pint size (5-foot-8, 176 pounds).
May 2 - 2:21 PM

Redskins released CB Chris Culliver.

Culliver signed a "four-year, $32 million contract" last March, but tore his ACL and MCL in November. The remaining guarantees in his contract were voided by a Week 2 suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. Culliver was excellent in 2014, and is still only 27. He'll get a second chance, but will have to be healthy first. The Redskins used a third-round pick on Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller.
