Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll claimed RB C.J. Prosise (ankle, injured reserve) could return later this season.

Prosise apparently has a six-week timetable, but has to miss at least eight weeks on injured reserve. That means any potential return would not happen until the postseason. We could consider Prosise unlikely to see the field before the 2018 season.

Cowboys LE DeMarcus Lawrence will play 2018 on the franchise tag.

The one-year, guaranteed pact is worth $17.1 million. A source told NFL Network's Ian Rapaport that Lawrence will definitively not play under the franchise tag next year, but he was always willing to do so in 2017. Sports Info Solutions charted Lawrence with the NFL's highest pressure rate among defensive linemen last season at 17.1%. Patriots DE Jabaal Sheard was second at 14.6%.

Le'Veon Bell will play his second-straight season on the Steelers' franchise tag.

No long-term deal was reached before Monday's 4PM ET deadline. As last year's tag netted Bell $12.12 million and this year's tag is worth $14.544 million, Bell will have collected $26.664 million fully guaranteed for two seasons. A suggestion surfaced Monday that Bell could hold out for the first half of the year, but that would cost Bell over $7 million and seems highly unlikely. Still, Bell is likely headed for another protracted training camp holdout. Last season, Bell reported to the Steelers nine days before Week 1.

Jets waived WR Devin Smith.

The No. 37 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Smith tore his ACL late in his rookie season, and then tore it again in April 2017. He was held out of the Jets' offseason program, so it's possible the move will be designated "waived/injured" and Smith will eventually be released with an injury settlement. A true burner and deep threat before the injuries set in, 26-year-old Smith is going to have trouble getting his career back on track.

The Dallas Morning News' Jori Epstein writes Dak Prescott "regularly targeted" TE Blake Jarwin during the offseason program.

Geoff Swaim appears likely to start for the post-Jason Witten Cowboys, but he is more blocker than receiving threat. Fourth-round rookie Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers could provide a receiving complement, but Jarwin received all the buzz during the offseason. He is a name to watch in training camp.

Panthers.com's Max Henson writes first-round WR D.J. Moore "looked more than ready to contribute" during the offseason.

Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and Christian McCaffrey should handle the majority of the targets, but there will still be room for Moore to produce if he is ready. Every indication has been he is, and Henson believes the rookie's "unique" ability to create after the catch will be used "as much as possible." Moore is an upside target in the later rounds.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski writes there is a "good chance" Jay Ajayi sees a "much higher workload than he had a year ago."

With LeGarrette Blount around, Ajayi saw just 31 percent of the Eagles carries after arriving in Week 9 last season. Blount is gone, however, and Ajayi saw 48.8 percent of the work in the playoffs even with him still on the roster. The Eagles have tended to use a committee under Doug Pederson, but it would not be a surprise if Ajayi bucked that trend in 2018.

The Charlotte Observer's Jourdan Rodrigue predicts Christian McCaffrey's carry total "won’t go up by much."

McCaffrey carried the ball 117 times as a rookie, and there was hope his role as a runner would expand following a strong finish to the season -- he averaged 4.7 yards per carry over his final eight games. Rodrigue expects new-addition C.J. Anderson to be the "traditional running back," however, leaving McCaffrey in a similar role to the one he occupied as a rookie. That role did allow him to finish as the RB16 in standard leagues last season, and Rodrigue thinks he can be even more productive as a receiver this year. Still, that is probably close to his ceiling if he does not get more involved on the ground.

Speaking on SiriusXM NFL Radio, ESPN's Adam Schefter said he thinks "it's possible Le'Veon Bell sits out the first half of the year if he doesn't get a long-term deal done."

Considering it is deadline day for franchise-tagged players to sign a long-term deal, this feels like a leak by Bell's camp to put pressure on the Steelers. That said, Bell did skip all of training camp last season, and it makes sense for him to hold out as long as possible to avoid both an injury and shouldering another 400 touches. Bell's No. 1 overall upside is tough to pass up, but he is a risk at the top of fantasy drafts.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he "can't say" if Carson Wentz (ACL) will be ready Week 1.

"I can tell you it’s not going to be a Doug Pederson decision. It will be a doctors’ decision," the coach added. "Carson will have to be 100 percent before he takes the field. I am going to rely totally on my medical staff." Considering Wentz took part in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs, this sounds like a coach being extra cautious. Still, it is at least a possibility Wentz is not ready to go Week 1, something to seriously consider at his sixth-round ADP.

In the premiere of Peter King's Football Morning in America, former Giants coach Ben McAdoo writes he needs "to handle players, and work with players, better" in his next stop.

The lesson was just one of several the former coach wrote about in the guest section of King's new column. In addition to his relationship with players, McAdoo admits he needs to have a less adversarial approach with the media in his next job, and he thinks better "bedside manner" would have helped in his decision to bench Eli Manning late last season. McAdoo defends the decision which he admits probably got him fired, however, writing he "made this call to try to make the Giants stronger for the future." McAdoo will spend this year out of football, but he has every intention of returning to the league.

In the premiere of Peter King's Football Morning in America (link below), Aaron Rodgers said he would "love to play to 40."

Rodgers will not turn 35 until December, but he is already thinking ahead. He notes players like Tom Brady and Brett Favre have had success after 40, but more mobile quarterbacks like him have struggled to remain effective into their late 30s. "My goal is be able to move like I do or close to how I do and still be able to do that at 40," Rodgers said. "Steve Young’s career was cut short in his late thirties. John [Elway], the same ... So to be able to move the same way at 38, 39, 40 would be cool. That’s my aim." Expected to sign a long-term extension before Week 1, there is little reason to doubt Rodgers will remain one of the best in the league for several years to come.
