Klug was limited to walkthroughs at OTAs. He’ll likely open camp on the active/PUP list. Klug should be ready for Week 1.

Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) is hoping to be ready for training camp.

Verrett was held out of OTAs and minicamp. There haven't been any setbacks in his ACL recovery, but the Chargers will likely continue to move him slowly. Verrett will be 11 months removed from surgery for Week 1.

Vikings S Antone Exum missed most of the offseason with a knee injury.

It's bad news after Exum missed all of 2016 with a leg injury. His training camp status should be considered questionable. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune doesn't project Exum to make the Vikings' Opening Day roster.

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) is expected to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Floyd missed the entire offseason with a career-threatening nerve issue. He's hoping to return at some point, but remains without a timetable. Anything the Vikings get from Floyd should be viewed as a bonus.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealers believes offset language is holding up contract talks with first-round S Jabrill Peppers.

Cabot is just speculating but it's become fairly common place for teams to quibble over offset language in negotiations with incoming players. First overall pick Myles Garrett was able to avoid offset language in his deal and Peppers is hoping for the same treatment. As the 25th pick, Peppers is locked into a four-year, $10.3 million contract with a $5.6 million signing bonus whenever he chooses to sign it. The deal should be finalized before training camp opens on July 27.

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal said it's "not farfetched to believe" second-year TE Seth DeValve could be the Browns' most improved player in 2017.

Ulrich said DeValve was putting on "clinics" during OTAs and looks like he could emerge as a "go-to target for whichever Browns quarterback wins the starting job." "Most of his development in the offseason was that he put on a little weight, he is noticeably stronger, he is faster and he is healthier," said TEs coach Greg Seamon. "He continues to work hard technically." DeValve should see more snaps this year with Gary Barnidge gone, but he'll still face competition from first-round rookie David Njoku.

Derek Carr said he structured his deal so the Raiders would have flexibility to sign other players.

Specifically, Carr wants the Raiders to keep their young core intact. "I told (my agent), if we can structure it in a way to help the Raiders get the other guys, give them an opportunity to come in, that that would be really important to me too," said Carr. "I just wanted to get mine done and, like we talked about, make sure the team had the flexibility to make sure my friends stay around." Carr's deal is backloaded, which should give the Raiders enough cap room to pursue contract extensions with RG Gabe Jackson and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack.

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post left Bennie Fowler off his projection for the Broncos' 53-man roster.

He also left off Marlon Brown. Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie are all locks, leaving four players—Fowler, Brown, Cody Latimer and Jordan Taylor—to battle for the last two spots at wide receiver. Wolfe believes Latimer will make the team because of his special teams prowess while Taylor's size gives him the edge over Fowler and Brown.

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post left seventh-round QB Chad Kelly (wrist) off his projection for the Broncos' 53-man roster.

Wolfe expects Kelly to spend the year on injured reserve. It makes sense for Kelly to use 2017 as a red-shirt year while working his way back from wrist and knee surgeries. Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will battle for the starting job.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien praised first-round QB Deshaun Watson's poise but admitted "he's not nearly where he needs to be to be a full-time starter."

"Every practice isn't perfect," said O'Brien. "He knows he needs to get a lot better. And he did get better every day during the spring." O'Brien noted that "you don't see him make the same mistake twice," so Watson is obviously taking his development seriously. Tom Savage remains the favorite to start Week 1, but it's likely we'll see Watson make starts by the end of the year.

Calgary Stampeders QB Bo Levi Mitchell eventually wants a shot at the NFL.

Mitchell is a CFL superstar, winning league MVP last season and leading the Stampeders to a Grey Cup title in 2014. He threw for 5,385 yards in 2016. But he's 27 and extremely slight of build, measuring 6'/198 coming out of Eastern Washington in 2012 and going undrafted. His CFL deal expires after 2018.

Coach Jay Gruden gushed about Jamison Crowder, saying "he's an excellent, dynamic player and continues to prove every day why we like him so much."

"He can run just about anything you ask him to run," Gruden said. "He gets himself open because he’s got a great feel. He’s got quickness in and out of his breaks. He plays a lot longer than his size. He has got really long arms. He goes up and gets balls. Sometime he plays bigger than a taller receiver because he uses his height [and] he’s got great jumping ability." This isn't the first time Gruden has talked up Crowder this offseason. Crowder is fully expected to be an every-down player in two- and three-wide sets and has a legitimate chance to challenge the league lead in catches this season.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes expects Matt Forte to be the Jets' "offensive workhorse" this season.

Color us skeptical. Most talk around the team this offseason has been hinting at a changing of the guard at running back for the rebuilding Jets, with Bilal Powell becoming the 1A as Forte takes a back seat as the 1B. Hughes doesn't believe that to be the case and expects Powell to be the "complement" to Forte. Nothing is settled in this backfield. It's a situation to monitor closely this summer.

Jets RBs coach Stump Mitchell has been very impressed with sixth-round RB Elijah McGuire.

"I like everything (about him)," Mitchell said. "He's got great hands. As a third-down back or simply a back, he can catch the ball extremely well. He has good vision, and a good ability to make cuts. I like him. He's a student of the game." McGuire is the heavy favorite to open as the Jets' No. 3 back.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker projected DeVante Parker to catch 70 passes for 980 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

All would be new career bests, and literally everyone around the Dolphins is expecting a big year out of Parker. The entire Dolphins' offense may be the most talked up of the offseason. One, or some, of these guys simply aren't going to live up to expectations. Walker projects Jarvis Landry at 90-1,110-5, with Kenny Stills taking the biggest hit to his 2016 stats. Parker has immense upside, but the hype is getting a bit out of control from some media. He remains a fantasy WR3/4.
