Bills.com’s Chris Brown believes Cyrus Kouandjio "will be given every opportunity" to remain at right tackle.

Kouandjio was active for one game (zero snaps) as a rookie. At 6'7/322, he profiles as a strong fit for OC Greg Roman's run-heavy scheme and could be a candidate to start over incumbent RT Seantrel Henderson.

Odell Beckham believes Victor Cruz’s presence will force opposing defenses to pay less attention to him.

"It is going to be a lot easier," Beckham said. "You can’t really do the things you usually do, whether it's a safety over the top or things like that. If you put them one-on-one, I trust to win 99 percent of the time. That is our mindset." Beckham showed he has the ability to beat double-teams last year. A healthy Cruz in the slot should help create more single coverage. The Giants project to have one of the league’s better passing attacks if Cruz returns to pre-injury form.

The Chiefs have exercised NT Dontari Poe's fifth-year option, valued at $6.15 million.

The dispute between Cowboys DLs Davon Coleman and Greg Hardy reportedly escalated when Coleman called Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy, of course, is facing a ten-game NFL suspension for domestic violence. The argument allegedly began when Hardy questioned Coleman's effort during a conditioning drill. Coleman followed up by getting personal with Hardy. The two defensive linemen were separated by teammates, and the confrontation never got physical. This is very likely to prove a non-story.

Suspended Cowboys RE Greg Hardy reportedly got into a verbal altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during conditioning drills on Friday.

Although it's being puffed up by multiple media outlets, the story -- linked below -- doesn't seem like a big deal at all. "Verbal altercations" happen all the time in competitive environments. Hardy and Coleman reportedly had to be separated after Hardy questioned Coleman's effort during a drill. Coleman's agent "said it was only a verbal argument and not a physical fight."

NJ.com's Mark Eckel passes along a "rumor making its rounds in NFL personnel meetings" of the Eagles trading Sam Bradford to the Browns for the No. 19 overall pick in the draft.

The Browns already offered No. 19 to the Rams for Bradford, prior to his trade to Philadelphia. St. Louis didn't accept because it wanted a quarterback, and wound up acquiring Nick Foles. The Browns are "still said to have interest" in Bradford. Per Eckel, the rumor has the Eagles then sending Nos. 19 and 20 -- plus Mychal Kendricks and Fletcher Cox -- to the Titans in exchange for No. 2 overall, where Philly would select Marcus Mariota. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Friday that Bradford currently believes the Eagles may be planning to trade him.

Dolphins VP of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum shed little light Friday on Dion Jordan's absence from the team's offseason program.

"If someone choses not to be here, that's their decision," Tannenbaum said, ominously. Jordan has endured suspensions, ineffectiveness, and an inability to establish a meaningful role on the Dolphins' defense since Jeff Ireland traded up to make Jordan the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft. At this point, the Dolphins might be willing to trade Jordan for a late-round pick.
