Following the signing of Chris Johnson, Mike Goodson is expected to be released before the season.

Goodson is now the No. 4 running back in New York, behind Johnson, Chris Ivory, and Bilal Powell. Alex Green is currently the No. 5 back. Goodson's one-year tenure with the Jets has been an interesting one. He was popped on gun charges last offseason before tearing his ACL in October. He's still only 27.

Free agent OG Davin Joseph is visiting the Cowboys.

Joseph visited the Rams over a month ago after getting his release from the Bucs. He's entering his age-31 season and had a disappointing 2013 after coming back from a torn patellar tendon. The Cowboys currently have Ronald Leary and Mackenzy Bernadeau penciled in at left and right guard, respectively.

Bengals signed P T.J. Conley.

Conley punted 42 times for the Jets in 2011 but hasn't appeared in a regular season game since. He's strictly a camp leg. Incumbent Bengals P Kevin Huber isn't in any danger.

Jets signed RB Chris Johnson, formerly of the Titans, to a two-year contract.

The Jets get their man. Gang Green was the only team really showing legitimate interest in the 28-year-old six-time 1,000-yard rusher. Johnson visited with the Jets all day on Tuesday and said he had more visits to make. Either the Jets wooed him with more money to keep him from leaving town or Johnson simply didn't have any other clubs interested in him. In our opinion, Chris Ivory should remain the early-down back in New York with Johnson mixing in to see 8-12 touches per game. Johnson's fantasy value clearly takes a hit, if so.

The Texans plan to play newly signed DL Ricardo Mathews at nose tackle.

Houston liked to employ undersized nose tackles under old DC Wade Phillips. New defensive boss Romeo Crennel prefers heavy space-eaters in the middle of his defensive line. Mathews tips the scales at just 300 pounds. He's not going to be counted on to start. The Texans still need a right end and a nose.

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB D.J. Bryant to a one-year, $420,000 contract.

Bryant, a 2012 undrafted free agent out of James Madison, has never appeared in an NFL game. He spent the 2012 season jumping between the Bucs, Colts, Jets, and Ravens practice squads before spending last season on I.R.

Clay Matthews (thumb) admitted he probably won't do much at OTAs but fully expects to be ready for training camp.

"I can't imagine I'll be too heavily involved with some of the stuff (at OTAs)," Matthews said. "I'm sure I can do stuff here and there. But yeah, we risked it once." Matthews broke his thumb twice last season and underwent two separate surgeries, so the Packers are going to ease him back. With Julius Peppers in the fold, Matthews also expects to see fewer double-teams in 2014.

According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, the Browns "really love" Fresno State QB Derek Carr.

"The feeling with many in football is that Cleveland will take Carr with its 26th pick," writes Freeman. This jibes with what NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah was hearing way back in late February. Coach Mike Pettine said Carr was the "best natural thrower in the draft" after a March private workout.

A source tells Bleacher Report that Rob Gronkowski (knee) will "take his time and then take more time" with his latest rehab.

Gronkowski is progressing on schedule as he comes off January surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL. But no one should blame him for proceeding with extreme caution as the 24-year-old has now undergone eight known surgeries in his career and missed 14 regular season games over the last two seasons. It's all speculation for now, but we can't rule out Gronkowski starting the year on PUP and missing the first six games of the regular season.

Giants agreed to terms with QB Josh Freeman on a one-year contract.

Matt Flynn chose to sign with the Packers, so the Giants go with Freeman as an offseason and camp arm. As long as Eli Manning's ankle heals as expected, it's possible Freeman won't even stick with the team into the regular season as Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib are already on the roster. The Giants typically carry just two quarterbacks. Freeman has the arm talent to win that No. 2 job, but he's going to have to earn his spot after getting dumped by the Bucs and then lasting one game as the Vikings starter last season.

Mike James (ankle) has resumed running and cutting.

James' stint as the Bucs' feature back was ended prematurely as he broke his ankle in Week 10, just three weeks after Doug Martin's season-ending shoulder injury. It's unclear if he'll be ready for OTAs, but training camp won't be an issue. James will have a leg up on Bobby Rainey for the No. 2 job after averaging 4.91 YPC on his 60 rookie-year rushes.

According to the NFL Network, the Ravens offered Haloti Ngata a lucrative long-term deal earlier this offseason.

The Ravens want to extend Ngata so they can lower his scheduled team-high $16 million cap hit. But with two years remaining on his current deal, the All-Pro run-stuffer has little incentive to take any kind of restructure that won't benefit him. The Ravens were still able to find enough cap space to retain pricy free agents Eugene Monroe and Dennis Pitta.

Peyton Manning said Montee Ball is ready to be the starting running back.

The Broncos wouldn't have let Knowshon Moreno walk for pennies if Ball didn't have Manning's blessing. We saw that faith in the playoffs last season, when Ball played on 91-of-226 (40.2 percent) of the snaps across three games. Stubborn fantasy owners are going to remember Ball's blown blitz pickup from the preseason and back-to-back fumbles in Weeks 2 and 3, but the Broncos have forgotten about that long ago. Both the coaching staff and Peyton are ready to ride with the physical second-year man as their feature back.

Sources tell the Baltimore Sun that the Ravens, Jets, Patriots, Falcons, Colts and Browns are showing the most interest in Missouri DE Michael Sam.

The list suggests that some teams (Ravens, Jets, Colts) still view Sam as a possible 3-4 edge player despite his lackluster Combine performance. Either way, he projects as a Day 3 pick that is going to have to earn a spot on a 53-man roster by carving out a situational rusher and special teams role. That's due to talent limitations, not Sam's sexual orientation.

The conditioning test free agent ILB Rolando McClain failed for the Ravens Tuesday was an interval sprint.

The Ravens ask players to run 25 yards up and back three times, for a total of 150 yards. They're asked to do this sprint six times and hit target durations, with a one minute break in between intervals. McClain simply couldn't get through it -- and also showed up late for his workout.
