Jaguars coach Gus Bradley questioned rookie WR Marqise Lee's effort in Friday night's preseason opener.

Lee played only 16 snaps, but wasn't targeted and appeared to just go through the motions. "That’s one of those things we’re looking at. Run your routes [like the football] is coming to you," Bradley said. "I’d like to visit with him about what happened. He could have done some things more precise. It wasn’t exactly where we need him to be." Lee has potential to lead Jacksonville in receiving as the starting Z receiver, but is going to struggle with consistency as a rookie playing on a team with quarterback issues. He's a WR4/5 flier. Bradley's comments -- made public on purpose -- are likely intended to light a fire in Lee. The Jaguars need him to do heavylifting in their pass game this year.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jaguars LT Branden Albert will not report for the start of OTAs.

Rapoport's colleague James Palmer reported over the weekend there were "some people" within the Jaguars who believed Albert would show after reopening communication last week, but Albert is still looking for a sweetened deal. With second-round rookie Cam Robinson an option at left tackle, Jacksonville is likely content to wait the veteran out. Mandatory minicamp begins in three weeks. Skipping that would show Albert is serious about his hold out.

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports the Rams plan to run a "tight-end-centric passing game."

It is not a surprising report considering Washington targeted a tight end on 26 percent (seventh-highest) of their attempts last season under Rams coach Sean McVay. Along with last year's fourth-rounder Tyler Higbee, second-round pick Gerald Everett gives the Rams two potentially dynamic weapons at tight end. Without much talent at receiver, it makes sense for the Rams to feature them if they are ready to step up.

Jared Goff said he is having an "easier time" learning the new offense under coach Sean McVay.

"I don’t know whether that’s scheme or the way it’s taught or what not," Goff said, "but I’ve enjoyed spending time with the coaches and picking it up pretty quickly." New OC Matt LaFleur shared a similar sentiment earlier this month, saying Goff has "really grasped the offense surprisingly fast." Goff was bad enough last year to raise serious questions about his ability to develop into a quality starter, but McVay and company will give him his best chance. As Goff suggested, that was not the case last season.

Odell Beckham did not report for the first day of Giants' voluntary OTAs on Monday.

The reason is unknown, but it's important to stress these workouts are "voluntary," and Beckham could very well report on Tuesday or sometime this week. In total, there are 10 sessions before another break ahead of next month's mandatory minicamp. Beckham is under contract for a little more than $1.8 million in 2017 and is due for a mega-extension either this summer or next.

Rams DT Aaron Donald is skipping OTAs due to a contract dispute.

Keep in mind this round of OTAs is voluntary. "It has something to do with the contract," GM Les Snead acknowledged Monday. "We're at the serious part of (negotiations)." Donald is owed just $1.8 million in 2017, and in 2018 the Rams have him under control with a fifth-year team option. Donald wants his extension now, however, and the team is amenable. The best three-technique tackle in football, Donald is likely to become the NFL's highest-paid defensive player whenever he puts pen to paper.

Former Ravens draft bust Matt Elam was arrested for grand theft and battery in Delray Beach, Florida on Monday morning.

It's his second arrest since February, when Elam was popped for allegedly possessing 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. Elam is being held on $4,500 bond. Elam, 25, has played his final NFL snap. The worst pick of Ozzie Newsome's tenure, Elam was drafted 32nd overall in 2013.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests the Steelers could play more four-receiver offense this season.

Assuming conditionally-reinstated Martavis Bryant is all systems go, the Steelers will have Bryant, Antonio Brown, Eli Rogers, and second-rounder JuJu Smith-Schuster available at wideout. Losing Ladarius Green removed a weapon from Pittsburgh's offense, and more four-wide packages could be one way to compensate. Last year's Steelers went four wide on just 1 percent of their plays. For comparison, the Jets led the NFL in four-wide sets at 33 percent.

New coach Vance Joseph said the Broncos plan to use a running back committee this season.

"You need two or three guys that can carry the load. It is no longer a one-guy position," Joseph said. "I’m excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De’Angelo (Henderson) in the mix. It’s going to be competitive, and that’s the way it should be." Anderson is the favorite for touches, but his usage will depend on Charles' health and whether Booker shows any year-two progress. Anderson currently makes sense as a sixth- to seventh-round pick in re-draft leagues, while the rest of Denver's backs are late-round fliers.

The Charlotte Observer reports Panthers OT Michael Oher's absence from the offseason program is not just concussion-related.

Per reporter Joseph Person, Oher is dealing with "personal matters" beyond his misdemeanor assault case. He is also reported to be out of shape. Oher remains penciled in as the Panthers' right tackle, but second-rounder Taylor Moton looms as a back-up plan. There's been no indication Oher is close to being cleared from the concussion that wrecked his 2016.

The Lions' website believes the team is planning a "featured role" for Ameer Abdullah (foot) in 2017.

The Lions admitted as much with their offseason moves, somewhat surprisingly skipping over running back in the draft and free agency. Still recovering from a torn ligament in his foot, Abdullah expects to be "full go" soon. "I'm just going to work my tail off and be the best back I can in the situations I'll be given this year," Abdullah said. "I'm really attacking things with a more focused mindset." Abdullah's home run ability has never been in doubt, but he won't catch passes with Theo Riddick in tow, and has just two career rushing touchdowns. There's still quite a bit of projection required with the 24-year-old (in June) back.

"Multiple sources" told the Miami Herald that DeVante Parker "has been so impressive this offseason" that Dolphins coaches are now hopeful he can "finally develop" into a "dominant threat."

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen has said the same publicly. Per the Herald's Armando Salguero, during the offseason program Parker has "come to understand that staying healthy is key to his success," which means "eating right," no longer skipping meals, and taking the team nutritionist's advice. Parker is also showing up on time after tardiness was a recurring early-career theme. In the past, Parker didn't always get enough sleep or work hard in practice. He is apparently doing those things now. If Parker has indeed matured, he has the god-given ability to take a third-year fantasy leap.
