The Bengals want to get second-year LB Nick Vigil more snaps.

It's the second time the Bengals have talked up Vigil this offseason. Vigil had a mostly nondescript rookie year, but is expected to enter OTAs as the strong side starter. Vontaze Burfict and Kevin Minter should open the season in every-down roles.

Bengals released MLB Rey Maualuga.

The writing was on the wall after the Bengals signed Kevin Minter. Maualuga was a seven-year starter in Cincy, but injuries and ineffectiveness reduced him to a part-time role (326 snaps) in 2016. His release saves $3.75 million against the cap. Entering his age-30 season, Maualuga should resurface closer to the veteran minimum.

Rams coach Sean McVay expects to use Lance Dunbar as a third-down back.

Dunbar should have a role similar to Chris Thompson in Washington. It's a downgrade to Todd Gurley's outlook, with Dunbar likely to play in all pass situations. Dunbar was phased out in Dallas last year, but averaged five catches per game before going down in 2015.

Jonathan Stewart thinks it is a "good thing" if the Panthers draft a running back.

"You always want fresh legs. Fresh legs mean a lot, especially in the fourth quarter," Stewart said. "Definitely open arms to get somebody in here that wants to win and understands that." It is a team-first mindset from Stewart, who just signed a one-year extension through 2018. It will be a shock if the Panthers do not draft a running back, but unless that pick comes in the first couple rounds, Stewart should enter training camp as the lead back.

Cal QB Davis Webb claims he was told he is a "first-round guy" by "double-digit teams."

"Every meeting I've had, they've said I'm one of the best quarterbacks on the board," Webb added. Clemson's Deshaun Watson and UNC's Mitchell Trubisky are generally thought to be the top quarterbacks in the draft, but after that it is a bit of a mess. Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer and Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes, who Webb was not able to beat out for a starting job in Lubbock, usually round out the top four, but it will not be surprising if Webb jumps one or both on draft day.

CSN New England's Tom Curran reports the Patriots and free agent CB Darrelle Revis have not discussed a deal.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported "numerous league sources" believe Revis will play in New England or nowhere in 2017, but the Patriots have yet to kick the tires on the declining corner. Perhaps that changes if Malcolm Butler ends up somewhere else, but Revis will need to prove he is in shape and healthy before any team is willing to take a chance.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports free agent LB Zach Brown has narrowed his list down to the Dolphins and Raiders.

The report suggests his visit with the Bills, who he played for last season, did not go well. Salguero points out neither team has met his asking price to this point, so it is possible another team swoops in with a better offer. Brown would be a great get for either team, especially if it comes at a discounted price.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes DE Timmy Jernigan is likely entering his final year in Baltimore.

Set to be a free agent after the season, Jernigan is expected to be quickly priced out of the Ravens' range, especially considering the money they just invested in NT Brandon Williams. The Ringer's Mike Lombardi recently said the Ravens are "talking about moving" Jernigan, but Hensley does not believe they will get enough in return to make it happen. The 2014 second-rounder has 13 sacks and has been stout against the run through three seasons.

Jets held a private workout with Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer.

They will also work out UNC's Mitchell Trubisky along with likely all of the other top quarterbacks, but it is notable considering GM Mike Maccagnan recently said signing Josh McCown will not stop the Jets from drafting a quarterback. Even after spending (wasting) a second-round pick on Christian Hackenberg last April, it will be slightly surprising if New York does not take another swing at quarterback this year.

Adrian Peterson said he is "in no rush" to find a new team.

That is convenient because NFL teams are in no rush to sign him. In a statement which must be true considering the number of all-caps words and exclamation points, Peterson shot down reports he is looking for $8 million in the first year of his new deal before adding "finding the best fit" and helping a team "win a championship" are his main objectives. Peterson has received almost zero interest since becoming a free agent.

The Denver Channel's Troy Renck believes the Broncos "haven’t closed the door" on Tony Romo.

A previous report suggested it’s the Texans or retirement for Romo. The Broncos aren’t going to trade Dallas anything, but aren’t ruling out signing Romo if/when he becomes a free agent. Houston remains Romo's most likely landing spot.
Mar 24 - 7:11 PM

The New York Post reports there’s a "good shot" free agent DT Johnathan Hankins re-signs with the Giants.

Hankins is holding out for a multi-year contract, but hasn't come close to his $8 million-plus asking price. The Giants cleared some cap space after extending Jason Pierre-Paul ($9 million) and getting pay cuts from Dwayne Harris and Shane Vereen. Returning on a prove-it deal could be Hankins' best chance at cashing in next offseason.

Cowboys signed G/T Byron Bell, formerly of the Titans.

The Cowboys needed some help up front after losing Doug Free (retired) and Ronald Leary (signed with Denver). Bell also visited the 49ers and Packers before choosing Dallas. Bell could be an option to replace Free at right tackle. He spent all of last season on injured reserve after disclosing his left ankle at OTAs.

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Tony Romo believes his options for 2017 are retiring or playing for the Texans.

Darlington said the Broncos haven't "closed the door" on Romo but aren't actively pursuing him. Romo ending up in Houston seemed like a forgone conclusion when the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to Cleveland, but no progress has been made. With Romo still stranded in Dallas, it's possible he could leave to pursue a career in broadcasting. Romo has been offered gigs with Fox Sports and CBS. All we know for sure is that Romo is done in Dallas.
Mar 24 - 4:51 PM

Panthers signed QB Garrett Gilbert to a one-year contract.

Gilbert spent a week on the Raiders' practice squad last season. He'll give the Panthers a camp arm with Cam Newton sidelined from shoulder surgery.
