Seahawks CB Tharold Simon (toe) has been a full participant in the offseason program.

Injuries have completely wrecked the 2013 fifth-rounder's career to date, but he's been getting first-team reps on defense with DeShawn Shead sidelined. "He’s doing everything," coach Pete Carroll said. "This is a really good look at him, this is the best we have seen him. ... He’s going to have a great, competitive opportunity because he’s put together a great off-season." Were Simon to beat out Shead for No. 3 cornerback duties, he would play on the boundary in nickel situations.

The Redskins are listing DE Trent Murphy at 290 pounds this spring.

That's up a whopping 24 pounds since the start of last season. The No. 47 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Murphy is making the move from outside linebacker. Murphy will work as a run stopper after struggling to get after the passer his first two years in the league.

Redskins DB Will Blackmon has worked exclusively at safety this offseason.

Blackmon is practicing at 212 pounds, which is up eight from his corner weight. Blackmon played 807 up-and-down snaps at corner last season, but the increased versatility could help his odds of cracking the 53-man roster.

Free agent RB Ray Rice spoke to the Ravens' rookies on Wednesday.

"He delivered an important message that included his story, both the good and the bad," the team said in a statement. "He clearly had the attention of our rookies." It was Rice's first trip back to Baltimore since his release. Now 29, Rice hasn't notched a carry since the 2013 season. A second chance doesn't appear to be in the cards.

Jets DL Sheldon Richardson said he's back down to 309 pounds after playing closer to 320 last season.

That's closer to where Richardson played as a rookie in 2013. Richardson believes it will help him get downfield more. "He was a little heavier last year," coach Todd Bowles said. "Sheldon's a good athlete. He holds it well. He can move, but, being a little bit lighter for him will play into his benefit." The concern for Richardson's 2016 isn't his weight, but a possible suspension after he was arrested on traffic and resisting arrest charges last summer. The case has been resolved, so an NFL ruling should come some time this summer.

Tony Romo believes he could play another five seasons.

Spoken like a true Jerry Jones acolyte. Romo remains elite on the field, but has had increasing trouble staying there. He hasn't appeared in all 16 games since 2012, and was limited to four starts by collarbone issues last year. Romo turned 36 last month. Realistically, he's a year-to-year proposition at this stage of his career.

Cowboys RE Randy Gregory is still working with the first-team defense despite his four-game suspension.

"You treat him like he is going to be part of our football team, certainly at this stage," coach Jason Garrett said. "(Get) him in there, get a good base underneath him, teach him technique, teach him the schemes we are using, and hopefully he grows every day." It's probably not the approach the Patriots would take with a suspended player, but Gregory is an integral part of the Cowboys' wafer-thin defensive line. The Cowboys are opting to build Gregory's confidence up rather than help keep it down.

Browns coach Hue Jackson believes Duke Johnson "does so many different things that gives your offense a boost."

Jackson also said Johnson has "suddenness and quickness and he can go catch the ball with anybody." ESPN's Pat McManamon believes the Browns could be grooming Johnson as an every-down back. Johnson was cast as a Gio Bernard type as a rookie, but was a three-down player in college. For now, Isaiah Crowell is the Browns' primary early-down thumper.

Patriots contract-year WLB Dont'a Hightower was evasive when asked about extension talks on Thursday.

"I ain’t got nothing to do with none of that," Hightower said. "I’m just out here trying to get better with my teammates." Coming off another strong year, Hightower will be gunning to top Lavonte David's $22.5 million guaranteed.

The Dolphins could use DeVante Parker to try to create mismatches in the slot this season.

Jarvis Landry is locked in as the primary slot man, but the Dolphins want to get Parker some snaps inside. "I'm expecting him to be a heck of a football player, a guy that other teams fear, because he can make big plays down the field, inside," Ryan Tannehill said. "He's a big-bodied guy. He's a guy we're going to want to use in the red zone, on third downs and to stretch the field as well." Parker's main job will be to make big plays on the boundary, but creative coach Adam Gase won't leave him stationary. Parker comes with a ton of upside as a WR3.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase confirms Ryan Tannehill will have more freedom at the line of scrimmage this season.

Infamously, Tannehill wasn't allowed to audible in Bill Lazor's offense. "In this offense, you're not really locked in on what the play call is," Gase said. "For (Tannehill) to have the ability to know what to get to — that kind of flexibility — being able to do that as a quarterback is very valuable." Gase went on to say Tannehill's intelligence is "off the charts." Coming off a season where he revived Jay Cutler's career, Gase has the capability to put Tannehill's in motion.

Browns signed second-round OLB Emmanuel Ogbah to a four-year contract.

Ogbah is making the transition from 4-3 defensive end to 3-4 outside linebacker. Extremely productive in the Big 12, Ogbah tore up the Combine. Ogbah needs to work on his run defense and expand his pass rushing repertoire, but he offers a ton of upside for the tanking Browns.

Seahawks G/C Justin Britt is still getting reps at tackle.

Drafted as a tackle, Britt was a remarkably ineffective guard last season. He was moved to center earlier this month, but the Seahawks apparently want to keep their options open. Britt could end up a jack of all trades for Seattle's alarmingly-thin offensive line.
May 26 - 5:23 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says "retired" RB Marshawn Lynch hasn't contacted him about playing in 2016.

Lynch's "retirement" seems to be written more in air quotes every day, but for now, he's sitting out the 2016 season. Perhaps Lynch will try to parachute in on the year during training camp, avoiding the rigors some veterans come to detest.
May 26 - 5:18 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the "hope remains" that Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) is ready for Week 1.

Speaking Thursday, Russell Wilson said Graham is "healing really fast," and will be "back sooner than people think." Wilson's quotes are per ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. The Seahawks have maintained a sense of vagueness with Graham's timeline all offseason, but there seems to be some genuine optimism he avoids the reserve/PUP list. Nevertheless, Graham should be considered a late-round injury question mark for fantasy purposes until further notice.
