Bears re-signed DC Vic Fangio to a three-year contract.

Fangio interviewed for Chicago's head-coaching vacancy last week but lost out to Chiefs OC Matt Nagy. He was also linked to defensive coordinator openings in Green Bay and Los Angeles (Chargers), but those jobs have since been filled. The Bears' defense was sneaky-good under Fangio this past season, ranking in the top-10 in passing yards allowed (seventh), points allowed (ninth) and total yards (10th). 2018 will be his fourth season in Chicago.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions and franchise-tagged DE Ezekiel Ansah are not expected to reach a deal prior to Monday's deadline.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the same over the weekend. Although Ansah recorded 12 sacks last season, nine of those came in three games, and injuries continue to be a real concern. He is easily their biggest talent on the defensive line, but it makes sense for Detroit to take a wait-and-see approach. Playing under the tag, Ansah will earn $17.143 million this season, his age-29 campaign.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams are not expected to sign franchise-tagged S Lamarcus Joyner to a long-term deal before Monday's deadline.

Joyner has already signed his one-year, $11.287 million tender, so he will be in camp and ready to go no matter what happens. Schefter reports the two sides will continue to talk leading up to the 4 ET deadline, but there is not much optimism. Joyner broke out last season after switching full-time to safety.
