The Denver Post considers the Broncos a landing spot for Tyrod Taylor.

The Broncos made a run at Taylor in 2015 free agency, but he signed with Buffalo for less money. The Bills are expected to move on from him this offseason, and the Broncos could be a strong fit given their quarterback situation and Taylor's ties to Gary Kubiak. With Paxton Lynch and a top-five pick this year, Taylor wouldn't be more than a placeholder in Denver.

According to The Athletic's Mark Kaboly, Steelers second-year RB James Conner "was very impressive" at spring practices.

On the same day the Steelers failed to reach a long-term deal with Le'Veon Bell, Kaboly noted No. 2 runner Conner "looks like he can be a solid every-down back in this league." There were few signs of that during Conner's rookie year, when he struggled with durability and pass protection in preseason games, then failed to earn more than eight snaps in any of his 13 regular season appearances. Conner's season ended on injured reserve with a torn MCL.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

It means Dixon has been fully cleared to practice on day one of camp after missing all of 2017 with a torn meniscus. A recent beat writer article left Dixon off the Ravens' 53-man roster projection, but the organization was very high on his ability before the lost year. More likely, Dixon will battle Buck Allen to serve as Baltimore's change-of-pace back behind Alex Collins.

Le'Veon Bell strongly hinted on Twitter Monday that he will not hold out into the 2018 regular season.

No long-term deal was reached between the Steelers and Bell ahead of Monday's 4PM ET deadline for franchise players to sign extensions. "(My) desire always has been to retire a Steeler," Bell wrote. "Both sides worked extremely hard today to make that happen, but the NFL is a hard business at times. To the fans that had hope, I’m sorry we let you down but trust me, 2018 will be my best season to date." Bell wouldn't be able to turn in his "best season to date" if he missed games. The over-under date for Bell to report to the Steelers should be set at September 1, the date on which he reported last year.

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.
