Raiders signed CB Daryl Worley, formerly of the Eagles.

Worley was cut by the Eagles after being arrested for DUI, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, and disorderly conduct fighting on April 15. A 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers, Worley put some promising moments on tape as a rookie but struggled last season and fell into a rotation for snaps.

ABC Dallas reports Cowboys DL David Irving is being investigated for domestic violence.

Irving was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend in what he called a social media "hack," but Frisco, Tex. police are taking the matter seriously enough to launch an investigation. Irving signed his restricted free agent tender just last week. He notched seven sacks in eight games in 2017. Irving served a four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy last season, and is now looking at something much more serious.

49ers GM John Lynch has said the team will release Reuben Foster if his domestic violence charges are proven true.

"If charges proven true, if he did hit this young lady, he won't be part of this organization," was Lynch's blunt statement. Lynch did add that "patience is the right approach right now." Foster recently had a misdemeanor gun charge dismissed but is still facing felony gun and domestic violence charges. Lynch's words are unusually blunt for this sort of situation, and paint an ominous picture of Foster's 49ers future.

Raiders exercised WR Amari Cooper's fifth-year team option for 2019.

There was some manufactured drama over whether the Raiders would extend Cooper's rookie contract by a year, but this was always going to be the outcome. Slated to make $3.53 million this season, Cooper will be due roughly $13.9 million in 2019. The option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Raiders could still walk away unless Cooper fails his physical before the start of the next league year. Wildly inconsistent through his first three NFL campaigns, 24-year-old (in June) Cooper has nevertheless already posted two 1,000-yard seasons.

The Miami Herald reports Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch is "on the Dolphins' radar."

Per reporter Barry Jackson, Miami has "privately identified linebacker as its biggest need." Adam Beasley reports Vander Esch could particularly become a target if the Dolphins trade back from No. 11 overall, which they are apparently open to doing. Vander Esch has reportedly been docked on some teams' draft boards due to concerns about a college neck injury.

Tom Brady's agent fully expects his client to return for the 2018 season.

The "Brady might retire" story appeared mortally wounded mere hours after it arrived in the world, but it now sounds officially dead. Brady forcing the Patriots' hand with Jimmy Garoppolo and then retiring would have been an all-time betrayal. It also never seemed to have an actual chance of happening. Fresh off winning an MVP award at age 40 and throwing for over 500 yards in the Super Bowl, Brady will enter 2018 remaining one of the very best players in the league.

Cardinals signed DE Benson Mayowa, formerly of the Cowboys, to a one-year, $1.6 million contract.

He visited the Cardinals earlier this month. Mayowa broke out with six sacks for the Cowboys in 2016, but he managed just one in limited snaps last season. He should compete for a rotational role.

Landon Collins underwent surgery on his forearm Monday.

Collins originally underwent surgery after he broke his forearm last December, but the bone did not heal properly. The safety confirmed he would need a second surgery earlier this month. Collins is expected to be sidelined six-to-eight weeks.

Free agent DB Will Blackmon has worked out for the Seahawks, Browns, Colts, and Falcons.

Released by Washington at final cuts last September, Blackmon spent the 2017 season out of the league. The 33-year-old was effective in 2016, however. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo expects him to land a job after the draft.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Ravens "are out" on free agent Dez Bryant.

A similar report popped up last week, but the signing of Willie Snead officially put the Ravens' interest to bed. Dez has also been linked with the Cardinals, Bills, and Packers, but nothing concrete has materialized to this point. It is possible both Dez and his potential suitors want to see how the draft shakes out before making any decisions.
Apr 23 - 10:50 AM

Ravens signed Willie Snead, formerly of the Saints, to a two-year, $7 million contract.

The deal includes a $2 million signing bonus. Since Snead was a restricted free agent, the Saints had the option to match his offer sheet, but they declined. Snead was foiled by a suspension, injuries, and a lack of playing time last season, but he was a consistently productive part of New Orleans' passing attack in 2015 and 16, racking up 141 catches for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns those two seasons. He is a good get for a team which needs as much help in the passing game as they can find.

Steelers exercised OLB Bud Dupree's fifth-year option for 2019.

The No. 22 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Dupree has been mostly a disappointment through three seasons, recording just 14.5 sacks total. He had his most productive season last year, however, and the option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Steelers can still cut him next spring if he does not improve. If he plays out the option year, Dupree will earn $9.232 million in 2019.

Matt Skura is currently penciled in as the Ravens' starter at center.

Ryan Jensen bolted in free agency, leaving Baltimore thin at center. A 2016 UDFA, Skura got his feet wet with 12 starts at right guard last season, but he mostly struggled. Baltimore should be on the lookout for an upgrade in the draft. Depending on how comfortable they are with James Hurst, they also could be looking for a starter at right tackle this weekend.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Davis Webb will "get a lot of reps" during this week's minicamp.

"It will be a great way for Davis to sort of showcase what he can do," Shurmur said. "I don’t want to make this sound like it’s a showcase for Webb, but as a guy we’re interested in seeing, he’s certainly gonna get his fair share of the reps." A third-round pick last year, Webb somewhat ridiculously did not see any game action as a rookie, so the new coaching staff and front office have little to go on as they try to evaluate Webb's potential. Perhaps the minicamp makes the picture a bit clearer, but even a strong performance from Webb should not stop the Giants from looking for Eli Manning's successor early in the draft.
Apr 23 - 9:38 AM

Cowboys exercised DB Byron Jones' fifth-year option for 2019.

Assuming he is not extended before then, Jones will earn $6.266 million in 2019. The salary is guaranteed for injury only. Jones has primarily played safety each of the last two seasons, but he is expected to move to corner this year.
