The New York Daily News expects it to be "tough" for the Jets to re-sign free agent NT Damon Harrison.

The Jets have to find a way to retain LE Muhammad Wilkerson, while RE Sheldon Richardson is entering a contract year. Although Jets coach Todd Bowles has been open about his hopes of retaining Harrison, the two-down run stuffer could get overpaid if he hits the free agent market.

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline hears the Jets "really like" third-year OL Brent Qvale.

Pauline is largely a draft guru, but he also gets on-point NFL scoops from time to time. Qvale, 25 in March, stands 6-foot-6, 318 and has the athletic makeup of a right tackle. The Jets badly need to upgrade on RT Breno Giacomini.

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline passes along "talk" from the Senior Bowl that the Titans may take Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil at No. 1 overall.

We'd go as far as to label Tunsil the early favorite for the Titans' No. 1 pick. Tennessee would probably prefer to trade down, but Tunsil would be a high-floor, high-upside fallback option. 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil is considered a rare "dancing bear" athlete for the left tackle spot. In this scenario, current Titans LT Taylor Lewan would kick to right tackle, upgrading two positions.

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline reports Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey is the No. 1 overall player on the Cowboys' draft board.

The Cowboys have draft-board leaks seemingly every offseason. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 202 pounds by the Seminoles, 21-year-old Ramsey profiles similarly to Antrel Rolle as a corner-safety hybrid with an affinity for run support. The Cowboys draft at No. 4 overall and have a legitimate chance at Ramsey, though he will also intrigue the Titans at 1, Browns at 2, and Chargers at 3.

Ex-NFL personnel man Bryan Broaddus compared Alabama RB Derrick Henry to famed Bears draft bust Curtis Enis.

Broaddus tweeted that he worries about 6-foot-3, 238-pound Henry "getting bigger and slower," and noted Henry's game tape reveals an oversized running back who "doesn't create," and needs "a lane to get going." Broaddus was hired by Hall of Fame GM Ron Wolf in Green Bay before spending time scouting for the Eagles, Jaguars, and Cowboys. The No. 5 overall pick in the 1998 draft, 250-pound Enis lasted just four seasons in the NFL, averaging 3.3 yards per carry.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss believes free agent Matt Forte "could be a perfect fit" with the Patriots.

The price would have to be right -- the Pats aren't the sort of team to pay top dollar for a 30-year-old running back -- but on paper there isn't a better fit across the league than Forte in Foxboro. Reiss previously suggested the Patriots will "explore the possibility" of signing Forte. LeGarrette Blount is a free agent, while space back Dion Lewis is rehabbing a torn ACL.

Free agent WR Josh Morgan was charged with reckless use of a firearm after accidentally shooting himself in Virginia on January 31.

That's a misdemeanor offense. Morgan claims he was cleaning the gun when he shot himself. He was hospitalized but none of his injuries were life-threatening. Morgan will appear in court next month. He went to training camp with the Saints last summer but was among the team's final cuts.

Saints re-signed FB Austin Johnson to a one-year contract.

He was an exclusive rights free agent. The Saints cut Johnson in November but re-signed him a month later. He'll be competing with Toben Opurum for a roster spot this summer.

Broncos signed RB Kapri Bibbs to a reserve/future contract.

Bibbs was active for one game last season, a Week 6 win over Cleveland. He returned a kick for 15 yards but didn't see carries. Even with Ronnie Hillman headed for free agency, Bibbs faces an uphill battle to crack Denver's 53-man roster.

Broncos signed S Ryan Murphy to a reserve/future contract.

Murphy was sent home during Super Bowl week for his involvement in a prostitution ring, though he wasn't arrested. He joined Denver's practice squad in November after being cut by the Seahawks at the end of training camp.

Broncos signed WR Jordan Taylor to a to a reserve/future contract.

Taylor spent time on the Denver practice squad in 2015 and served as Peyton Manning's throwing partner while he rehabbed from a foot injury. The UDFA out of Rice has yet to play an NFL snap. Taylor does offer the requisite size (6'4/209) and just enough speed (4.52) to be worth considering in especially deep Dynasty leagues. What he lacks is clear immediate opportunity.

Andy Dalton (thumb) hasn't begun throwing yet.

"Not throwing yet because we are being very conservative with it," said Dalton in a text message earlier this week. "I feel like I can throw but no reason to push anything right now." Dalton was having his best season before a broken thumb ended it in Week 14. He should be ready for OTAs.

$6 million of Saints FS Jairus Byrd's base salary for 2016 became fully guaranteed on Wednesday.

Wednesday marks the third day of the new waiver period. Byrd inked a six-year, $54 million deal with the Saints in 2014. So far, he hasn't been worth the money. Byrd tore his meniscus early in the 2014 campaign and was part of a New Orleans secondary that allowed 284 passing yards per game this past season. Cutting him would have cost the Saints $11.4 million in dead money.

Browns LCB Joe Haden's $10.1 million base salary for 2016 became fully guaranteed on Wednesday.

Previously, his salary was only guaranteed for injury. Concussions limited Haden to five games last season. Even when healthy Haden was ineffective, receiving a negative grade from Pro Football Focus. Haden's concussion stories were scary, experiencing headaches and light sensitivity. Haden released a statement in December saying doctors told him to expect a "full recovery."

Free agent DE Malik Jackson said he would "love to stay" with the Broncos but understands contract talks are "business."

"I would love to stay here and just kinda continue to start here with my boys," said Jackson. "But you know it is a business and I gotta feed my family so we’ll see what happens." Jackson said he would have no problem playing under the franchise tag, though the Broncos are more likely to use that on Von Miller if they can't work out a long-term agreement. Jackson could become one of the NFL's highest-paid defenders if he tests the market.
