According to a source with "knowledge of the dynamics of the situation," it’s unlikely that the Browns cut Josh Gordon, but it "remains possible."

In other words, don't count on it. Gordon has more than earned his release with his off-the-field behavior, but he's simply too dynamic of a talent for the Browns to give up on. If waived, Gordon would almost certainly get claimed. Aside from negative publicity, there's little reason for the Browns to dump last year's receiving champ. They have nothing to lose by keeping him stashed.

No players were selected in Thursday's Supplemental Draft.

The email "draft" appeared to last less than five minutes. New Mexico WR Chase Clayton, North Carolina LB Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg DT Lakendrick Ross and SMU RB Traylon Shead are now eligible to sign with any team as undrafted free agents. The fact that no team was willing to surrender even a seventh-round pick in next year's draft for any of the four players obviously bodes poorly for their NFL futures.

Baylor coach Art Briles said he thought Robert Griffin III rushed back from his knee reconstruction last season.

"The thing about ACLs: I’ve always thought they take a complete year to get over. And I think he rushed himself a little bit," Briles said. "So I think this year, I do think we’ll see a very healthy RGIII." The onslaught of positivity continues. All indications point to a bounce-back season for RGIII.

Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (foot) is "confident" he will be ready for training camp.

"I feel really good. My foot feels really good," Seferian-Jenkins said. "I've been running routes, doing all the exercise and workout drills that they've asked me to do. I feel very comfortable." ASJ missed all of Bucs OTAs and minicamp because of Washington's late graduation, so he will likely be behind Brandon Myers and Tim Wright when camp begins. He should push for snaps early, though, and could develop into a red-zone threat as soon as this season. Seferian-Jenkins is a TE2 flier in redraft formats.

Jaguars.com's John Oehser said the Jaguars view second-year CB Dwayne Gratz as a "building block of the defense."

Gratz had a solid rookie campaign, earning positive marks from Pro Football Focus and holding opposing quarterbacks to a meager 75.7 quarterback rating when they threw his way. Will Blackmon will challenge him, but Gratz is the favorite to open the season opposite Alan Ball.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Andre Johnson has told the Texans "he wants to play for another team."

Rapoport added four teams have expressed interest in the veteran wide receiver, but Houston is resisting the move. It is unsurprising Johnson wants a trade. Entering his age-33 season, Johnson does not have time to wait through yet another rebuilding job. He is also unhappy the Texans refused a deal that would have paid him his $1 million workout bonus despite the fact that he missed several sessions. Even with the animosity, it is not a certainty Johnson leaves Houston. Rapoport believes the Texans could remedy the situation by paying Johnson his $1 million or promising him a roster spot in 2015. This has the look of a saga that could drag into camp.

Redskins ILB Keenan Robinson is the favorite to start opposite Perry Riley.

A 2012 fourth-round pick, pectoral injuries have limited Robinson to only 69 career snaps. Finally health, Robinson has worked with the first-team defense all offseason. He still has to prove he is mentally ready to handle the job, but all indications are Robinson will begin the season as the starter.

Colts tight end coach Alfredo Roberts said getting Dwayne Allen (hip surgery) back "is like getting a brand new player."

Allen was pegged for a big role in OC Pep Hamilton's offense last year, but he injured his hip only 32 snaps into the season and was placed on injured reserve. Now healthy, Allen should once again be a big part of the Colts' plans. He is a solid TE2 with upside.

Lions second-year RE Ziggy Ansah will be moved around more in new DC Teryl Austin's defense.

"I like the changes we have now," Ansah said. "I don’t always have to be on the right side. I can get up and move around and drop into coverage." Ansah led all rookies with eight sacks last season despite playing limited snaps. He should see his role on defense increase this season, and is a good bet to break the double-digit sack barrier.

Lions FB Jed Collins should win the starting job in camp.

Collins worked with new OC Joe Lombardi in New Orleans and is more accomplished as a lead blocker than his competition, Montell Owens. Collins' presence is great news for Joique Bell. Bell rushed for 182 yards on 31 carries (5.87 YPC) in the 2011 preseason running almost exclusively behind Collins.

The Boston Globe's Erik Frenz believes Patriots rookie RB Roy Finch will make the final roster.

An UDFA out of Oklahoma, Finch is an explosive runner with the skill set to help in the passing game and on special teams. Standing at only 5-foot-7, 177, Finch will never be an every-down back, but he has the playmaking ability to make the most out of limited touches. With Shane Vereen entering the final year of his deal, Finch is an interesting stash in deeper Dynasty formats.

The Boston Globe's Erik Frenz does not believe Patriots RB Brandon Bolden will make the team.

Though used primarily in the passing game while Shane Vereen was injured last season, Bolden has the size and running style to play the "big back" role in the Patriots' offense. If Bolden is cut, it would leave just Stevan Ridley and perhaps UDFA Stephen Houston to fill that role. In addition to Ridley and Vereen, Frenz believes FB James Devlin and rookies James White and Roy Finch will crack the final roster.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers RB DuJuan Harris' 2013 knee injury was a ruptured patellar tendon.

We knew the injury was to Harris' patellar tendon, but not that it was ruptured. This is an injury that commonly derails running back careers, most notably and recently Cadillac Williams and Ryan Williams. Ruptured patellar tendons can sap explosion. Harris participated in OTAs, and in June coach Mike McCarthy stated Harris "looks like he's back to full strength." Harris projects as Green Bay's No. 3 tailback this season, behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks.

Andre Johnson hinted to NFL Network's Marcus Smith on Wednesday that he plans on reporting to training camp.

"Hopefully," said A.J., who skipped last month's mandatory minicamp. "We’ll see what happens. Camp is three weeks away." Johnson's beef was never about money. He understandably fears a lengthy rebuild for a team that had May's No. 1 overall draft pick, but we suspect the Texans will be more competitive more quickly than Johnson believes. His "hopefully" comment suggests ending the holdout is in Johnson's plans. Currently sporting a late-fourth-round Average Draft Position, Johnson has the look of a value pick entering his age-33 season.

NFL suspended Redskins S Tanard Jackson indefinitely for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

It's Jackson's second indefinite suspension in less than two calendar years; he was suspended indefinitely for substance abuse on August 31, 2012 before getting reinstated on May 5 of this year. Jackson's NFL days are 100 percent over after this ban, and he may never be welcomed back by Roger Goodell.
