Cowboys acquired ILB Rolando McClain and a 2016 seventh-round pick from the Ravens in exchange for a 2016 seventh-round pick.

Desperation in the wake of Sean Lee's ACL tear strikes. McClain was the No. 8 pick in the 2010 draft, but has "retired" twice in the last 15 months while saying his "heart pulls" him away from football. He's also been arrested three times since December 2011. Now likely in need of money, McClain reportedly wants to play again. He lands in a spot with plenty of opportunity, as Lee's injury left an already thin defense on life support. If 24-year-old McClain is motivated and in shape, he'll have a chance to enter the starting middle linebacker mix along with Justin Durant, Anthony Hitchens, and DeVonte Holloman. The meager trade compensation and McClain's non-guaranteed $700,000 contract leave the Cowboys with little risk. It's still impressive on Baltimore's behalf that GM Ozzie Newsome was able to get something -- even a small move up in round seven -- in return for McClain.

Dennis Pitta says "nobody is making more plays" in Ravens OTAs than Breshad Perriman.

We would hope a 23-year-old former first-rounder would be able to light it up in padless practices, but it's still notable that Perriman is making plays and standing out. Perriman flashed as a sophomore after missing his entire rookie year with a knee injury, but was still exceedingly raw. He's supposedly improved his chemistry with Joe Flacco this offseason. After failing to add a receiver in the draft or free agency, the Ravens are putting the weight of the world on Perriman's shoulders.

Bears signed WR Victor Cruz to a one-year deal.

He joins Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton and ex-teammate Rueben Randle as a veteran flier in the Bears' Alshon Jeffery-less receiver corps. Returning from a torn patellar tendon, Cruz somehow averaged 15.0 yards per catch last season, but it didn't show up on film. Cruz no longer offers legitimate play-making ability. It's not a guarantee he makes the 53-man roster.

Amari Cooper said he thinks he can be "a lot more" productive moving forward.

Cooper has surpassed 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons, but he struggled down the stretch both years. Just two of the nine 100-yard performances of his career have come after Week 8, and he averaged just 46 yards a game over the final eight of last season. If he can fix his late-season swoons, Cooper will be a sure-fire WR1 this year.

Vikings OC Pat Shurmur said the team has been "really pleased" with Laquon Treadwell's progress this offseason.

"He came back and he was really on point with what he’s supposed to be doing mentally," Shurmur said. "He’s been out here competing and doing a nice job running routes and catching the ball." The comments came after a practice in which Treadwell ran with the first-team offense. The Vikings brought in contingency plans this offseason, but Treadwell seems to be doing his part to ensure they are not needed.

Luke Kuechly said he is tired of hearing questions about his concussions.

"Hopefully we can move on from that and not ask any more questions about concussions," Kuechly said. "I'm done with that." Kuechly also added he does not think about suffering another head injury. The linebacker is clearly trying to move away from the concerns, but the fact remains he has missed nine games in the last two seasons because of head injuries. They will remain a concern even if he does not want to talk about them.

Rob Gronkowski (back) has been cleared to be on the field at practice.

Gronk's recovery has been progressing well, and he was on the field with the Patriots for the first time today. Gronk might be limited throughout the offseason program, but this is good news as he gets "ready to roll" into the rest of the preseason. Gronk's injury history is well documented, but the Patriots have shown confidence in him by restructuring his contract this week. Gronkowski should be fully ready for the Patriots' opener.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he thinks criticism of Kelvin Benjamin's conditioning has been unfair.

Benjamin looks heavy in pictures and videos from OTAs, but Rivera said he likes where the receiver is in terms of his conditioning. Of course, Rivera is the one who said Benjamin reported for the offseason program "a little heavy." Even if he is not in top shape right now, Benjamin has time to get there before camp.

Coach Sean McDermott said the Bills are "concerned with Charles (Clay's) knee situation."

Clay was signed as a highly paid restricted free agent in 2015, but has had "chronic" knee trouble since. Coach McDermott said they will be cautious with Clay moving forward, and will continue to manage his reps. Battling his knee problems last year, Clay missed several practices and was listed as questionable for most games. The injury will be something to monitor this offseason.

Updating a previous item, Odell Beckham did not report for Thursday's OTA practice.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported the receiver was expected to return on Thursday, but he is not there. As one would expect when dealing with Beckham, the situation is being blown completely out of proportion, but players skip OTAs all the time. Beckham will be ready to go when it matters.

The Huffington Post's Jordan Schultz reports Colin Kaepernick "wants to be a Seahawk."

Kaepernick visited with but did not work out for the Seahawks on Wednesday. Schultz reports the visit went "very well" and Kaepernick is willing to be a backup, but there is "no rush" to work out a deal. If the Seahawks share Kaepernick's enthusiasm, they will likely want him in the fold before minicamp begins in June.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Josh Doctson (Achilles') has "been impressive."

"The big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles', and I think he's got that right now," Gruden said. "Now we've just got to continue to put one day after another after another." Doctson twice tried to return from his injury last season, and both times he had to be shut back down. For now, it looks like he is on the right track, but the Redskins will certainly be cautious. Doctson should play a big role if he can stay healthy this season.
