The Kansas City Star expects Spencer Ware to return as the Chiefs' starting running back.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher previously projected rookie Kareem Hunt as the team's likely leader in 2017 rushing attempts and running back catches. Ware has averaged 4.63 yards per carry and 11.6 yards per reception over the past two seasons, however, and the Chiefs shouldn't be in any hurry to pull Ware off the field. This will be a camp battle to monitor closely.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase suggested Jay Ajayi could see as many as 350 carries this season.

This assumes his health cooperates, of course, and that the Dolphins lead on the scoreboard enough to feed Ajayi the nearly 22 carries per week required to approach 350 attempts. Regardless, it's clear the Dolphins' offense is now built around Ajayi and not on Ryan Tannehill's arm. "I'm ready for it," Ajayi said when asked about his feature back usage. "I prepare myself every season to take a huge workload and be able to carry the team, and I think I'm ready for that." Ajayi is one of the highest-upside running back picks in the second round.

Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith says he can do everything he was able to do before his knee injury.

Smith has been setback-free in his limited OTA work. His health continues to point up, and the Cowboys remain optimistic he'll fully regenerate his nerve issue. Smith will be 20 months removed from knee surgery for Week 1.

Cowboys RBs coach Gary Brown insisted Wednesday that Ezekiel Elliott does not have a concussion.

Elliott is sitting out OTAs after suffering a head injury in a Sunday night car accident. The Cowboys claim he merely took a "hit to the head," and isn't concussed. He is reportedly being held out of practice as a "precaution." Elliott is expected to resume practicing next Tuesday. Strangely, Zeke has been involved in two automobile accidents already this year.

Giants signed DE Devin Taylor to a one-year contract.

They also signed S Duke Ihenacho. Taylor started all 16 games last year, but took a step back after his seven-sack 2015. With Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon locked in as starters, Taylor will return to a rotational role with the Giants.

Giants signed S Duke Ihenacho, formerly of the Redskins.

Ihenacho didn't generate any free agent interest despite starting 10 games last season. He gives the Giants another option in a secondary with questions opposite Landon Collins. Ihenacho struggled with missed tackles in Washington, but is a plus run stopper.

Browns hired former Colts GM Ryan Grigson as Senior Personnel Executive.

Grigson was fired in January after a disastrous five years with the Colts. He's reuniting with VP of Player Personnel Andrew Berry, over whom Grigson was the boss in Indy. The Browns had an opening after national scout Lake Dawson left for Buffalo. While his hire will undoubtedly be poorly received, Grigson adds a veteran scouting presence to an unproven front office.

Brock Osweiler says he expects to be the Browns' starter.

"My expectation is always to start," Osweiler said. "But once again that's not my decision. I want to play and I want to help this team win, but I know there's a lot of work that needs to go into that." Osweiler has been working with the second-team offense at OTAs, but rotated in with the starters. The Browns quarterback competition should carry deep into training camp.

Dolphins signed first-round DE Charles Harris to a four-year contract.

The deal includes the standard fifth-year option. Harris was highly productive in college, but had a disappointing Combine (4.82 speed, 9-foot-1 broad jump). There's concern he'll max out as a situational pass rusher.

Jets S Calvin Pryor is participating in voluntary OTAs.

Pryor didn't report to Day 1 of OTAs. There was speculation he could hold out after the Jets declined his fifth-year option and drafted safeties with their first two picks. Owed a fully guaranteed $1.6 million salary, the Jets wouldn't save any money from releasing Pryor.

The Indianapolis Star reports "there are no assurances" Andrew Luck (shoulder) will be ready for the start of training camp.

Owner Jim Irsay hinted at this back in March. Luck hasn't had any setbacks, but the Colts are committed to not rushing him back from January surgery. Even if Luck misses some camp time, there's no concern over his status for Week 1.

Restricted free agent K Brandon McManus hopes to land a long-term contract from the Broncos.

Tendered at the second-round level for $2.746 million, McManus has yet to sign his offer and will likely not do so until the June 15 deadline in hopes something long-term works out. The 26-year-old (in July) made 85.3 percent of his field goals last season and is one of the better kickoff men in the league.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports the Seahawks aren't expected to immediately sign free agent Colin Kaepernick or any other quarterback.

Kaepernick and Austin Davis are the two known passers visiting the team on Wednesday. It sounds like a mere look-see on the Seahawks' end for the time being, but it's a step in the right direction for Kaepernick. The Seahawks would probably like to have a backup QB in place in time for June minicamp.

Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (knee) is participating in individual drills at OTAs.

Brown tore his ACL in October and remains on track in his recovery. He should be ready to roll for the most part once training camp opens. A coaches' pet, Brown will battle for one of the Cardinals' final receiver jobs.
May 24 - 2:23 PM

Bills signed fifth-round QB Nathan Peterman to a four-year contract.

Peterman is considered more pro-ready than a typical fifth-round QB, and is battling with veteran T.J. Yates and Cardale Jones for the backup job behind Tyrod Taylor. Peterman should win a spot on the 53-man roster, and could be an option if the Bills move on from Taylor in the future.
