Cardinals selected Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas with the No. 120 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Thomas (6-foot-5 3/4, 248) was hyped as a future No. 1 pick following his redshirt sophomore year, but never improved his accuracy and will enter the pros as a developmental project despite 40 college starts. He finished his career with a 55.5 percent completion rate and 53:39 TD-to-INT ratio. A high school tight end and wideout as a college freshman, Thomas runs 4.61 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump -- freak measurables for a 250-pound quarterback. He has a cannon arm and massive hands (10 7/8"), and could perhaps develop into a poor man's Cam Newton with a fantastic coaching job. There might not be a better fit in the NFL for Thomas than with Bruce Arians and Arizona. He'll start out as Arizona's No. 3 quarterback behind Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton.

The Saints visited with free agent TE Jermaine Gresham.

It's Gresham's first visit since undergoing March back surgery. The Saints could use a veteran presence after trading away Jimmy Graham. Gresham's signing would be a threat to "Y" tight end Ben Watson's snaps. The Saints have made it clear Josh Hill will play Graham's old "F" position in Sean Payton's offense.

Redskins LT Trent Williams underwent offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his ankle.

Williams was experiencing discomfort during the early part of voluntary workouts and decided to get it "cleaned out" by Dr. Robert Anderson. He'll be sidelined until training camp. Williams is down 20 pounds this year, which should help him move better. When healthy, he's an elite left tackle. The Redskins have approached the former No. 4 overall pick about a contract extension.

Coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday that the Cowboys have "addressed" Joseph Randle's recent criticism of DeMarco Murray.

Garrett said Randle's "meat on the bone" comments were addressed by club officials last week, and Randle "needs to talk less and play more." Despite playing behind a running back in Murray whom he claims left yards on the field, Randle earned just 94 snaps worth of playing time last year while being arrested twice, once for marijuana possession and again for shoplifting underwear and cologne. During his jail time, Randle allegedly mocked a female jail employee and the arresting process altogether. He also incurred team-imposed fines.

The Baton Rouge Advocate's Nick Underhill predicts C.J. Spiller will handle more touches than Mark Ingram this year.

Underhill guesses Ingram could handle 185 carries to 140 for Spiller, and the latter is sure to be used far more in the passing game. "With the baseline set, I expect Spiller to end up with more touches," writes Underhill. Underhill continues on Spiller, "I expect him to do big things" in Sean Payton's offense. While we'd still bet on Ingram leading New Orleans' backfield in usage, we can't rule out Spiller earning a sizable workload depending on health and performance, and playing a huge role as a receiver. Spiller has legitimate RB1 upside in PPR leagues.

Panthers signed QB Cam Newton to a five-year, $103.8 million contract extension.

The deal includes $60 million guaranteed, and $67.6 million over the first three years. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, that's a record for a three-year period. They're massive numbers, but we'll see how "guaranteed" Newton's $60 million truly is. Either way, it's a huge vote of confidence in a quarterback who hasn't always been the most consistent. Like the Panthers, however, we still believe in Newton's dual-threat upside. He's arguably the league's most-unique threat at quarterback, and has overseen back-to-back division winners. Newton has taken a ton of hits through four NFL seasons, but is still only 26. The Panthers were right to lock him up.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says the team is welcoming back Adrian Peterson "unequivocally."

For his part, Peterson said he "just wanted to (come back)," and that he has his eyes on a Super Bowl. "This past year has been emotional for both parties," Peterson said alluding to the months of tension. "I’ve learned a lot from my mistakes. And I’m moving forward." It sounds like Peterson and the Vikes have both found a solution they can get behind.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has declined to recuse himself from Tom Brady's appeal hearing.

"Because protecting the integrity of the game is the commissioner’s most important responsibility, I decline to rewrite our CBA to abrogate my authority and discretion to hear any appeal in a conduct detrimental proceeding," Goodell said. The NFLPA's request was always a long shot. Brady and Goodell will meet on June 23.

Sam Bradford (ACL) took part in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday.

This has been the plan for the past several weeks. Bradford rotated first-team reps with Mark Sanchez before sitting out team drills. Questions have arisen over the state of Bradford's surgically-repaired left knee, but he's still making enough progress to suggest he'll be ready for training camp. The Eagles have staked a ton on Bradford's shaky health.

Fred Jackson said the Bills want LeSean McCoy "to get 300-plus carries next year."

The Bills aren't tip-toeing around their running back situation with fake claims about competition. Even the players know McCoy is going to be shouldering a large percentage of the load as a true feature back. As the Bills try to hide their ugly quarterback situation, Rex Ryan will be grounding-n-pounding Shady. Running backs coach Anthony Lynn has already said he wants to slash Jackson's snaps in half.

Saints signed DE Cam Jordan to a five-year extension worth up to $60 million.

The deal, which runs through 2020, includes a hefty $33.6 million in guaranteed money and nearly $27 million over the next two years. It's a ton of cash considering the down year Jordan had in 2014, but we saw his sky-high ceiling in 2013 when he graded out as a top-four 3-4 end in PFF's grades. Still just 25 years old, Jordan 28 sacks in his last 48 games. The Saints continue to invest heavily in their defense and running game this offseason.

The Jaguars official website confirms T.J. Yeldon is "expected to be the starter as a rookie."

Even the team's in-house writers are handing the job to Yeldon, who will be backed up by Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart. The second-round pick is impressing early in the offseason program. "He looks really good in short-area change of direction," MLB Paul Posluszny said. "He looks really, really good there. It’s, ‘How does a guy move in space? How athletic is he?’ That’s what stands out. With him, he definitely has it." Yeldon's upside is capped a bit by the Jags' bottom-barrel offense, but he's going to see enough volume to be a RB2.
