A Titans staff member told third-round S Kevin Byard that Bishop Sankey's number was available.

Byard wore No. 20 in college, the same number Sankey has worn his first two years in the league. Teams often have players share numbers when the roster is expanded during the offseason program, but the top players usually get their number all to themselves. After the Titans traded for DeMarco Murray and drafted Derrick Henry, Sankey clearly no longer a highly-valued asset, and it would be a surprise if he survives training camp on the roster.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said second-round LB Myles Jack (knee) is "ready to go."

Caldwell said Jack would be able to participate in spring ball if he was still at UCLA, but he admitted the linebacker may need a procedure in the future. "I don’t think the plan involves microfracture," Caldwell said. "I don’t think he’s a candidate for that from what I’ve been told, but there may need to be a procedure somewhere down the line." A top-five talent, Jack slipped to the second round because of long-term concerns about his knee. If the Jaguars can keep him healthy, he could end up being the steal of the draft.

Lions waived TE Jordan Thompson (knee) with a failed physical designation.

Thompson made two appearances for Detriot in 2014, but he missed all of 2015 after suffering a "significant" knee injury in the preseason. He is likely still recovering from that injury.
May 4 - 5:23 PM

Chiefs waived WR Fred Williams.

A preseason DFS star last year, Williams spent most of the regular season on the practice squad. Already 28, it is not a given he gets another shot.
May 4 - 5:18 PM

Cardinals waived CB Joel Wilkinson.

A former Australian Rules Football player, Wilkinson was just signed in February. He is a long-term project, but it is possible he lands in another camp. Arizona also cut ties with CB Kevin White, CB Tyrequek Zimmerman and C Valeran Ume-Ezeoke. These moves make room for their undrafted free agent class.

Lions signed WR Andre Caldwell, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year contract.

A third-round pick of the Bengals in 2008, Caldwell caught just 32 passes for 337 yards and five touchdowns in 54 appearances for the Broncos since 2012. Caldwell is not a difference maker, but he is a veteran presence that can contribute in a thin receiver corps. He will likely compete with T.J. Jones and Jeremy Kerley for the No. 3 receiver job.
May 4 - 5:10 PM

Seahawks waived C Drew Nowak, RB Cameron Marshall, TE Ronnie Shields, DE Josh Shirley and WR Tyler Slavin.

The moves make room for Seattle's undrafted free agent class. Nowak started the first eight games last season at center, but he ended up losing his job to Patrick Lewis. He will be a roster long shot wherever he lands.
May 4 - 5:00 PM

Falcons signed No. 17 overall pick SS Keanu Neal to a four-year contract.

Like all first-round contracts, Neal's comes with a fifth-year team option for 2020. Last year's No. 17 overall pick, 49ers DE Arik Armstead received a $5.42 million signing bonus. Based on the salary cap rising, Neal's should come in close to $6 million. Neal is expected to be coach Dan Quinn's new Kam Chancellor.

Vikings signed second-round CB Mackensie Alexander to a four-year contract.

He gets a $1.34 million signing bonus. Alexander was a fringe first-round prospect who dropped to the Vikings at No. 54 overall possibly due to character concerns. He's reportedly very difficult to deal with off the field. Alexander will probably be the Vikings' No. 4/sub-package corner as a rookie.
May 4 - 2:05 PM

49ers re-signed restricted free agent ILB Michael Wilhoite to a one-year, $1.671 million contract.

Wilhoite has finally decided to sign his tender. He was easily the last one to do so. Wilhoite struggled as a starter last season and will face competition from Gerald Hodges for the job next to ILB NaVorro Bowman.
May 4 - 1:37 PM

Baylor DE Shawn Oakman has drawn zero interest as an undrafted free agent.

Baylor coach Art Briles said no teams have called him regarding Oakman. The 6-foot-8, 269-pound All-American was arrested last month on sexual assault charges, and it was later revealed he also roughed up his ex-girlfriend back in 2013. Oakman won't be with a team until the legal matters are resolved, and even then, Oakman may have a tough time finding work. Before the 2015 season, he was being viewed as a shoo-in first-round pick.
May 4 - 1:28 PM

Vikings signed No. 227 overall pick DE Stephen Weatherly to a four-year contract.

He gets an $81,288 signing bonus. Weatherly has the makings of a potential seventh-round contributor after doing well in pre-draft workouts, even if he wasn't all that productive at Vanderbilt. He'll need to carve out a role on special teams first before having thoughts of sacking the quarterback.
May 4 - 1:11 PM

According to TE Garrett Celek, Blaine Gabbert has been "definitely taking control" as the starting quarterback at 49ers' voluntary workouts.

"Whoever’s at quarterback needs to take control and be our leader out there. And he’s definitely doing that," Celek said. "I think he’s definitely developing more and more as the days go on." Gabbert is the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback at these very elementary workouts because Colin Kaepernick (thumb, knee, shoulder) remains on the shelf and isn't expected to be cleared until June 1. When Kap does gain clearance, he and Gabbert are expected to compete for the starting job. Gabbert is getting an early leg up in coach Chip Kelly's new offense.
May 4 - 1:01 PM

Vikings signed No. 188 overall pick TE David Morgan to a four-year contract.

Morgan gets a $135,456 signing bonus at his draft slot. He showed well in agility drills in pre-draft workouts, but ran extremely slow at 5.02 in the forty. Morgan's ticket to the roster will be special teams and blocking skill.
May 4 - 11:59 AM

710 Seattle's Danny O'Neil believes sixth-round C Joey Hunt will compete with Patrick Lewis for the Seahawks' starting center job.

Not only does O'Neil believe Hunt will compete to start, he "thinks" Hunt will actually beat Lewis out for the gig. The Seahawks are completely overhauling their offensive line this year. Lewis was PFF's No. 21 center last season. Hunt is undersized at 6'/295, but size has never seemed to bother Seattle.
