Latest Headlines

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on NFL Live Thursday that the "prevailing thought around the league" is the Texans will "take a defensive player or look to trade out" at the No. 1 overall pick.

Per Schefter, Houston is unlikely to draft a quarterback first. There have been increased signs the Texans have already settled on South Carolina DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney, not the least of which was Clowney's decision to end his private-workout schedule on the pre-draft circuit. We suspect the Texans may have already informed Clowney he'll be their pick. Look for Houston to draft Clowney at No. 1 and select a quarterback 33rd overall. Signal callers are going to fall on draft day, quite possibly further than anyone expects.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports LSU T/G La'El Collins' first visit will be to the Cowboys.

La Canfora deems Collins "the most coveted undrafted free agent in NFL history," which really isn't an exaggeration considering he was seen as a lock first-rounder before an unfortunate series of events resulted in Collins falling out of the draft entirely. Collins' chances of starting in Dallas wouldn't be great when compared to other potential destinations, though we imagine he may be a better left guard option than Ronald Leary, who is the relative weakness on the Cowboys' line.

Vikings LT Matt Kalil underwent arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees in January.

Kalil was arguably the NFL's worst left tackle in 2014. The hope is the scopes help Kalil return to form. Kalil is also taking "injections designed to help patients deal with joint pain," like platelet-rich plasma therapy. Kalil was a Pro Bowler as a rookie in 2012. Last season, PFF charted Kalil with a league-high 12 sacks allowed in addition to 14 penalties, tied for second most among offensive tackles.

Former longtime Ravens FS Ed Reed will announce his retirement on Thursday.

Reed spent 2014 on Showtime's Inside the NFL, and it was known his playing days were through. He'll make it official on Thursday, retiring as a Raven. A first-round pick in the 2002 draft, Reed went to an absurd nine Pro Bowls and was a five-time first-team All Pro. He led the NFL in interceptions three times, amassing 64 for his career with seven pick-sixes. Perhaps the greatest "center-field safety" of all time, Reed won the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's All-Decade team for the 2000s. He should be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, although so too should have been Orlando Pace, who was ridiculously edged out by Jerome Bettis this past year.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL is considering discipline for Tom Brady as a result of "DeflateGate."

The Ted Wells Report paints an ugly picture for Brady and equipment personnel Jim McNally and John Jastremski, who are also facing discipline from the league. Meanwhile, it appears coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft will skate free. It's possible Brady will be watching Week 1 on his couch with LeGarrette Blount, who was suspended for one game earlier this offseason.

Bears signed No. 7 overall pick WR Kevin White to a four-year contract.

As is the case with all first-rounders, the deal comes with a fifth-year team option. White will replace Brandon Marshall in the starting lineup opposite Alshon Jeffery, keeping the "Twin Towers" effect in place for Jay Cutler. Eddie Royal will man the slot, with Marquess Wilson holding on as the No. 4 receiver. White can work at all three levels of the field and has immediate 1,000-yard upside.

Ted Wells released his "DeflateGate" report Wednesday and found it's "more probable than not" that the Patriots manipulated the footballs in the AFC Championship game.

"It is more probable than not that Patriots personnel participated in violations of the Playing Rules and were involved in a deliberate effort to circumvent the rules," Wells concluded. "In particular, we have concluded that it is more probable than not that Jim McNally [the Officials Locker Room attendant for the Patriots] and John Jastremski [an equipment assistant for the Patriots] participated in a deliberate effort to release air from Patriots game balls after the balls were examined by the referee. Based on the evidence, it also is our view that it is more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities." Brady doesn't come out well in the 243-page report, but Patriots higher-ups like coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft may have been unaware of the wrongdoings. It's now up to the NFL to hand out discipline.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel considers Jeff Janis the Packers' No. 4 receiver.

Janis' breakout potential took a hit when the Packers re-signed Randall Cobb, relegating Davante Adams to third-receiver duties and Janis to No. 4. Still, the paper slots him ahead of Jared Abbrederis and third-round pick Ty Montgomery. With Jordy Nelson coming off hip surgery, we wouldn't totally rule out Janis making some 2015 noise if he keeps the fourth-receiver job into Week 1.

Chiefs waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

The Chiefs didn't draft a signal caller, but decided their quarterback room was too full. Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray now comprise Andy Reid's top four. Pryor's stay with the team lasted all of 42 days. Pryor is less than two years removed from starting nine games for the Raiders, but like Tim Tebow, his lack of passing skills is shutting doors faster than they can open.

Cardinals TE John Carlson is retiring after seven years in the NFL.

One week shy of his 31st birthday, Carlson had one year left on his contract. "After much thought and consideration, my wife Danielle and I know that this is best decision for us," Carlson said in a statement. He did not elaborate on his reasoning, but Carlson has a long and scary history of concussions. It was undoubtedly a factor in hanging up his cleats. Carlson retires with 210 catches for 2,256 yards and 15 touchdowns. He posted a 33/350/1 receiving line last season. The Cardinals have a crater at tight end.

Jameis Winston is reportedly "pushing hard" for LSU T/G La'El Collins to join the Buccaneers.

Better than both Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet, Collins would be a huge addition to Tampa Bay's roster. Coach Lovie Smith also has a long track record of taking chances on players with "off-field concerns," although we're not sure there are even any off-field concerns with Collins. Per Yahoo's Rand Getlin, Winston has called Collins "multiple times" in the last 24 hours.
May 5 - 12:57 PM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution projects Tevin Coleman as 1A on the depth chart and Devonta Freeman as 1B.

Coleman, the third-round rookie out of Indiana, brings superior physical skills to the table. The diminutive Freeman will remain in the mix as a change-of-pace option and potential third-down back. Homerun hitter Antone Smith also figures to get some chances. But as long as Coleman keeps his nose in front of this committee, he'll have serious upside thanks in large part to the presence of run-game guru Kyle Shanahan.
