Peyton Manning said Montee Ball is ready to be the starting running back.

The Broncos wouldn't have let Knowshon Moreno walk for pennies if Ball didn't have Manning's blessing. We saw that faith in the playoffs last season, when Ball played on 91-of-226 (40.2 percent) of the snaps across three games. Stubborn fantasy owners are going to remember Ball's blown blitz pickup from the preseason and back-to-back fumbles in Weeks 2 and 3, but the Broncos forgave him for that long ago. Both the coaching staff and Peyton are ready to ride the physical second-year man as their feature back.

According to SI's Peter King, the Cardinals "don't like Baker Mayfield, they love him."

In fact, King has the Cardinals trading up from No. 15 to No. 5 to draft Mayfield in the spot currently owned by Denver. It would be a steep price for Arizona to pay, almost certainly including next year's first-round pick. To date, Mayfield has been the favorite to go to the Jets at No. 3 overall. King has the Jets passing on Mayfield in favor of UCLA QB Josh Rosen.

A source he "trusts" who is "very well-connected" and "very often right" told MMQB's Peter King the Browns won't take Wyoming QB Josh Allen with the No. 1 overall pick.

It should be a breath of fresh air for Cleveland fans; analytically, Allen barely belongs in the first round let alone in conversation for the No. 1 pick. King published a mock draft in his MMQB article, and sent USC QB Sam Darnold to the Browns at No. 1. We agree and also expect Cleveland to take Darnold.

The NFL will meet May 1-2 at league headquarters in New York to continue discussion about player safety.

The "summit" will focus on the future of kickoffs. The attendance list has not yet been finalized, but invitees include former players, team executives, and both current and former coaches. Though there is reportedly no indication the kickoff could be eliminated as early as this season, this particular meeting will occur just over one month after the league added a "targeting" penalty. League offices have also prepared a memorandum to address the increase in training camp concussions.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the Patriots expect both Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady to play in 2018.

A source with "knowledge of the situation" told Florio the Patriots are expecting both stars to return for this upcoming season. More importantly, what appeared to be a non-story all along is slowly being unveiled as such. Brady never indicated he was considering retirement and had even planned normal off-site offseason workouts with his fellow teammates. The Athletic's Jeff Howe also recently reported Gronk told members of his inner circle he's strayed from voluntary workouts because "he's happy living life and generally just taking a little extra time away." Both are expected to be full participants when New England opens training camp in July.

Broncos GM John Elway confirmed the team's desire to draft a running back.

"It’s hard to predict where they’re going to end up, but it is a deep class," Elway said of this year's crop of running backs. "We feel good about the fact that we’ll be able to get a good one." The Broncos just released their leading rusher from last season, C.J. Anderson, leaving 2016 fourth-rounder Devontae Booker atop the team's running back depth chart. Penn State RB Saquon Barkley could be an option for Denver if he falls to No. 5, though most reports suggest the Giants are targeting him at No. 2. More likely, the Broncos will look to one of Derrius Guice, Sony Michel or Ronald Jones to address their backfield need. That might require them to trade up from No. 40.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Raiders are expected to exercise Amari Cooper's fifth-year option for 2019.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie was somewhat noncommittal when Cooper's option was discussed on Friday, telling reporters he didn't want to "put the cart before the horse." However, this was always the expected outcome for Cooper, even coming off a down year in 2017. Cooper's option is expected to be worth $13.9 million.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan said "don't be surprised" if the Giants look to trade OT Ereck Flowers during the draft.

The former first-round pick has been a no-show for offseason workouts, a decision that has not been "well-received" within the organization. Even with Flowers due a reasonable $2.4 million in the final year of his rookie deal—the Giants are expected to decline his fifth-year option—the 23-year-old may struggle to draw trade interest. One anonymous NFC scout told Raanan he "wouldn't want him in the building" while adding that Flowers "sounds like he's not worth the trouble." Flowers earned PFF's No. 63 tackle grade out of 83 qualifiers last year.

Broncos OLB Shane Ray expects his fifth-year option to be picked up.

Ray played just eight games last year and hasn't lived up to his draft status. There's not a ton of downside in picking up his option, which guarantees him $9.2 million for injury only. The Broncos have until May 3 to make a decision on Ray.

Draft Analyst’s Tony Pauline reports Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being drafted by the Jets is a "done deal."

The Jets are higher on Mayfield than Josh Rosen. They also like Sam Darnold, but Mayfield looks to be their pick if Darnold doesn't fall. Mayfield has "won over" GM Mike Maccagnan in the pre-draft process and fits the West Coast scheme of OC Jeremy Bates. The most pro-ready quarterback in this year's class, Mayfield would push Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown to be the Jets' Week 1 starter.

Rob Gronkowski won't participate in the Patriots' offseason workouts.

When asked if he'll participate in the team's voluntary workouts, Gronk said he won't because he's "got dirt-biking skills to work on." He also candidly mentioned the Patriots will see a "freek-a-leek" when he comes back, perhaps hinting he'll be a participant in camp. Team workouts are completely optional, but the 28-year-old will miss out on a $250,000 workout bonus in his contract. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier in the week Gronkowski is still considering whether to play in 2018.
Apr 21 - 12:42 PM

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Eagles have reached an agreement with QB Nick Foles on a revised contract.

The deal includes a mutual option for 2019, so it's possible Foles could still hit the market as a free agent next offseason. He'll also receive a $2 million signing bonus. The Eagles are sweetening Foles' deal as a way of repaying him for leading the team to its first Super Bowl last year. He'll be back as Carson Wentz's backup in 2018.
