The Minneapolis Star-Tribune now considers it "unanimous" that Adrian Peterson will stay with the Vikings.

Agent Ben Dogra opened the offseason insistent A.D. would never play another down for the Vikings. In a recent interview with USA Today, Dogra essentially praised the franchise and confirmed Peterson would stay put. "One of the things I appreciate with the Vikings is their resolve to say ‘we’re not trading him,'" said Dogra. "That tells me they value him not only as a football player but what he has done for the organization." Peterson's agent still hopes the Vikings either boost his client's salary or guarantee a portion of his currently non-guaranteed deal.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports LSU T/G La'El Collins' first visit will be to the Cowboys.

La Canfora deems Collins "the most coveted undrafted free agent in NFL history," which really isn't an exaggeration considering he was seen as a lock first-rounder before an unfortunate series of events resulted in Collins falling out of the draft entirely. Collins' chances of starting in Dallas wouldn't be great when compared to other potential destinations, though we imagine he may be a better left guard option than Ronald Leary, who is the relative weakness on the Cowboys' line.

Jets signed fifth-round OG Jarvis Harrison to a four-year contract.

Harrison has all the ability in the world, but needs to get his conditioning in order. If he does, he could become a plus starter at either guard spot.

The results of a paternity test administered to LSU T/G La'El Collins showed that he is not the father of murder victim Brittney Mills' child.

Collins also passed a polygraph test in connection with the investigation into Mills and her unborn child's murders. Baton Route (LA) police continue to view Collins as a non-suspect. He isn't even seen as a "person of interest" in the case.

Vikings LT Matt Kalil underwent arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees in January.

Kalil was arguably the NFL's worst left tackle in 2014. The hope is the scopes help Kalil return to form. Kalil is also taking "injections designed to help patients deal with joint pain," like platelet-rich plasma therapy. Kalil was a Pro Bowler as a rookie in 2012. Last season, PFF charted Kalil with a league-high 12 sacks allowed in addition to 14 penalties, tied for second most among offensive tackles.

Ed Reed - DB - Ravens

Former longtime Ravens FS Ed Reed will announce his retirement on Thursday.

Reed spent 2014 on Showtime's Inside the NFL, and it was known his playing days were through. He'll make it official on Thursday, retiring as a Raven. A first-round pick in the 2002 draft, Reed went to an absurd nine Pro Bowls and was a five-time first-team All Pro. He led the NFL in interceptions three times, amassing 64 for his career with seven pick-sixes. Perhaps the greatest "center-field safety" of all time, Reed won the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's All-Decade team for the 2000s. He should be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, although so too should have been Orlando Pace, who was ridiculously edged out by Jerome Bettis this past year.

Colts signed seventh-round OT Denzelle Good to a four-year contract.

Good, the No. 255 overall pick, is a major developmental project after spending last season at Division II Mars Hill. He's a candidate for the Colts' practice squad.
May 6 - 7:56 PM

Colts signed No. 207 overall pick LB Amarlo Herrera to a four-year contract.

Herrera (6'1/244) projects to play the inside in the Colts' 3-4 defense. He should spend 2015 as reserve linebacker and core special teamer.

A tweet from Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth's Twitter account on Wednesday stated that owner Mike Brown has informed Whitworth that he will not be re-signed after the 2015 season.

Like RT Andre Smith, Whitworth is in a contract year. The Bengals used their first- and second-round picks on tackles, and Whitworth is known to be frustrated with the only organization he's ever known. "Mike Brown told me I'm done here," the tweet read. "Said I can play this year and go home. So I told him I want a raise or I'll sit my ass at home." Later, Whitworth attributed the tweet to his wife and claimed it was "intended to be sent as a private message" to a teammate. The tweet has since been deleted, and Whitworth's account is now private.

Colts signed No. 205 overall pick RB Josh Robinson to a four-year contract.

Robinson (5'8/217) is a power runner with athletic limitations. He ran just 4.70 at the Combine. Robinson should compete with Vick Ballard and Zurlon Tipton for a roster spot. Our money will be on Robinson, a violent bowling ball with surprisingly smooth passing-game ability.
May 6 - 7:46 PM

Colts signed No. 151 overall pick DT David Parry to a four-year contract.

A fifth-round pick, Parry is solid defensive line depth for the Colts. He had 12.5 TFLs and 4.5 sacks over his final two seasons at Stanford. Parry projects as a high-end rotational nose tackle.
May 6 - 7:39 PM

Colts signed No. 109 overall pick S Clayton Geathers to a four-year contract.

A four-year starter at UCF, Geathers is a developmental box safety that excels at stopping the run. He ran 4.55 at the Combine with a 37-inch vertical. At a weak position in Indy, Geathers has a chance to earn snaps as a rookie.
May 6 - 7:32 PM

ESPN’s Michael Rothstein projects Kyle Van Noy as the Lions’ starting SAM linebacker.

A top-50 pick in 2014, Van Noy spent eight games on short-term I.R. He was limited to a reserve role over the second half, playing just 54 snaps. Van Noy will face competition from fourth-year LB Tahir Whitehead. Whitehead is coming off a great year in run defense, so we wouldn't pencil in Van Noy just yet.

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Cherilus will likely miss all of OTAs recovering from a January knee scope. He struggled while playing through multiple injuries last season, but is being counted on to come back healthy. GM Ryan Grigson did little to upgrade the Colts offensive line in the draft, adding just OT Denzelle Good in the seventh round.

The Dallas Morning News doesn’t expect LB Keith Rivers to make the Cowboys’ 53-man roster.

Rivers struggled for playing time in Buffalo last year, getting just 192 snaps. He's nothing more than a veteran flier in Dallas. With Rolando McClain at middle linebacker and Sean Lee on the weak side, Anthony Hitchens and Kyle Wilber will battle for the Cowboys' strong-side linebacker position.
