According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, "everybody in the league" believes USC WR Marqise Lee will not get past the Packers at No. 21.

Lee's pre-draft buzz has been relatively quiet following a disappointing senior season, but he remains a dynamic talent on tape. Lee was a revelation as a junior before injury and quarterback issues marred his 2013. Few teams are better at finding wideouts than the Packers, so it's a great sign for Lee's stock that they've apparently taken interest.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports Tony Romo has agreed to restructure his contract, clearing "nearly" $13 million in cap space for the Cowboys.

Prior to this move, the Cowboys were right up against the cap with ILB Rolando McClain's new one-year, $3 million deal set to hit the books. Romo is likely converting most of his $17 million salary into a "signing" bonus. Romo previously said he'd take a pay cut so Dallas could re-sign DeMarco Murray. Maybe he'd do the same for an Adrian Peterson addition, though that seems unlikely at this point.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Eagles are "willing to trade" slot CB Brandon Boykin.

Boykin is another Andy Reid carryover, and coach Chip Kelly is intent on building the Eagles his way. The former fourth-round pick is just 24 and has finished second and 19th, respectively, in PFF's cornerback rankings each of the past two seasons. At 5'10/185, he's a slot corner-only, but a good one. Salguero mentions the Dolphins as a team that would have interest in Boykin.

Cowboys re-signed MLB Rolando McClain to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Another $1 million is available through incentives. McClain, the former No. 8 overall pick and twice-retired 25-year-old, had a big season for the Cowboys in 2014. He graded out as PFF's No. 8 inside linebacker, showing well both against the run and in pass coverage. McClain will man the middle for Dallas this season, allowing Sean Lee to kick outside to the WILL spot.

Bears signed RB Jacquizz Rodgers, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year contract.

A four-year veteran, Rodgers owns a lousy 3.65 YPC for his career, but has caught 155 passes in 63 games. He also holds his own as a blocker despite standing in at just 5-foot-6, 196 pounds. Rodgers will start out as the No. 3 back behind Matt Forte and Ka'Deem Carey, but could carve out a role in the Bears' passing game. He's unlikely to hold any value in PPR leagues.

Ravens agreed to terms with QB Matt Schaub, formerly of the Raiders, on a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's low-end backup money. The rapidly-declining veteran was supposedly also drawing interest from the Cowboys, Titans and Falcons. Going on 34, Schaub was picked twice in 10 attempts for the Raiders last season, also taking three sacks. Arguably the league's worst starter in 2013, Schaub will be a shaky backup for Joe Flacco, but more experienced than Tyrod Taylor. Flacco hasn't missed a game in seven NFL seasons, a trend the Ravens are obviously counting on to continue for 2015.

XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki reports free agent Rob Housler is drawing interest from the Bengals as well as the Ravens, and would like to make a decision "by the end of the week."

The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday morning that there was "mutual interest" between Baltimore and the ex-Cardinal. Housler offers legit receiving upside, but was inconsistent in a Cardinals offense that doesn't feature tight ends catching passes.

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is visiting the Dolphins Tuesday.

Ridley underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL on Nov. 18, depressing his free agency pricetag toward a one year "prove it" kind of contract. A bunch of teams would be wise to poke around, even ones that have plus starters like Lamar Miller. When healthy and holding onto the football, the 220-pound Ridley is both powerful and quick in a complementary early-down/goal-line role. The Cowboys and Vikings (if they move Adrian Peterson) are other possible landing spots.
Mar 31 - 8:25 AM

Eagles agreed to terms with WR Miles Austin, formerly of the Browns, on a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

Another $700,000 is available through incentives. We'd have to think there's little guaranteed money here, but who knows what coach Chip Kelly sees in Austin. The soon-to-be 31-year-old posted a pedestrian 47-568-3 line across 15 games for Cleveland last season and has no separation skills after numerous hamstring injuries. He'll likely back up all three spots in Philly.
Mar 30 - 5:54 PM

Packers agreed to terms with NT B.J. Raji on a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

Raji can earn "up to" $4 million. It's a good deal for the former No. 9 overall pick, who is arguably a minimum-salary player at this stage of his career. He can't stay healthy and hasn't put good play on tape in a while. Raji will compete for playing time behind returning starter NT Letroy Guion.
Mar 30 - 4:28 PM

Eagles signed ILB DeMeco Ryans to a one-year extension through 2016.

The deal lowers Ryans' cap number and will pay him $7.5 million over the next two years. It includes $6.25 million guaranteed. Recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, Ryans had been going into the final year of his contract. The two-year commitment by Philadelphia strongly suggests coach Chip Kelly is counting on Ryans to immediately return to form despite the severe 2014 injury. There is speculation the Eagles will now trade Mychal Kendricks, and start Ryans next to Kiko Alonso at inside linebacker.

Free agent ILB Rolando McClain is visiting the Patriots on Monday.

McClain finally has someone to leverage against the Cowboys, who have been lowballing him since the beginning of free agency. McClain was an integral part of Big D's defense in 2014, but dealt with concussions. He's also facing a four-game fine for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Although McClain is surely pleased to have another club in the bidding, New England is not the kind of team that's going to break open the bank for a player with his question marks.
