Steelers re-signed QB Bruce Gradkowski.

He'll return as Ben Roethlisberger's primary backup. Gradkowski, 33, should be able to easily beat out Landry Jones and Dustin Vaughn in Steelers camp. He missed all of last season with finger and shoulder injuries.

Bears released OG Matt Slauson.

Slauson was owed just under $3 million this season. The move is surprising after Slauson finished No. 18 in Pro Football Focus' 2015 guard ratings, with a top-ten rank in pass protection. He allowed one sack in 16 starts, and just turned 30 in February. While the Bears are moving on with second-round pick Cody Whitehair at left guard, a good guard just hit the free agent market.

Bears released S Antrel Rolle.

Rolle, 33, lasted one season in Chicago, but appeared in just seven games for the Bears due to an ankle injury and sprained MCL. He was merely average when on the field for DC Vic Fangio. The Bears will move forward with second-year FS Adrian Amos and either fourth-round rookie SS Deon Bush or free-agent signee Omar Bolden. Rolle's release saves the Bears $2.7 million in camp room.

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman believes TE Brandon Myers is competing for the Bucs' final tight-end spot.

Myers has one year left on his contract at a $1.75 million salary. He's behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins, youngster Cameron Brate, and Luke Stocker on the depth chart. Myers posted a 12-127-0 line on 321 snaps last season.

Giants signed Illinois State RB Marshaun Coprich.

Coprich (5'8/207) was the 2015 FCS Offensive Player of the Year and twice earned Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year, finishing his career as Illinois State's all-time leader in carries (927), rushing yards (5,201), and TDs (59). His career yards per carry was 5.61 with 33 receptions. Coprich tested like an NFL-caliber back, blazing 4.47 at the Combine with a 34-inch vertical, which he improved to 39" at the Redbirds' Pro Day. Coprich is small and needs to learn a pro-style passing game, but he is a one-cut zone runner with big-time burst and can make defenders miss. Coprich's combination of athleticism and production make him someone to watch.

Coach Doug Pederson said Sam Bradford would be in danger of losing the starting job if he continues to stay away from the team into the summer.

Obviously. Bradford remains M.I.A. from the team since demanding a trade when it was revealed the Eagles would take a quarterback at No. 2 overall, and he's still not answering calls from Pederson as he continues to pout at home. "Anybody that’s not in any of the 32 offseason programs is losing valuable time at that club," Pederson said. "So anybody that’s not in the offseason program, yes, would lose the time." Bradford may end up costing himself the starting job and be stuck in Philly where he doesn't want to be.

Texans signed Cumberlands WR Wendall Williams.

Williams (5'11/174) bounced around community colleges and tiny schools before arriving at Minneapolis' Regional Combine this winter. A track star in the NAIA, Williams clocked 4.19 (you read that right) with a 45-inch vertical after averaging 30.5 yards per catch (15-457) at the University of Cumberlands and scoring 15 touchdowns, including four on returns. Already 25 years old, Williams' best bet may be to carve out an NFL niche as a dynamic return specialist.

49ers signed Oregon DT Alex Balducci.

2014 first-rounder Arik Armstead, 2015 first-rounder DeForest Buckner, and Balducci all played on the same defensive line together at Oregon. Balducci (6'4/309) made 29 starts at defensive tackle for the Ducks, finishing his career with 10.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. He was selected honorable mention All-Pac 12 as a senior. Balducci showed passable athleticism for his size at Oregon's Pro Day, running 5.01 with a 9-foot-5 broad jump and 33-inch vertical. In the NFL, Balducci best projects as a rotational early-down run stopper.
May 1 - 1:29 PM

Cardinals signed Eastern Washington OT Clay DeBord.

DeBord (6'6/302) made a school-record 51 starts for the Eagles, earning first-team FCS All American in 2015. He drew NFL notice with a big Pro Day, running 5.03 with a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump. DeBord managed only 18 bench-press reps and obviously needs time in the weight room, but he has NFL-level size and athleticism. He's a somewhat intriguing project.
May 1 - 1:19 PM

Vikings signed North Carolina QB Marquise Williams.

Williams (6'2/218) made 33 starts for the Tar Heels, succeeding Bryn Renner under center and completing 61.3% of his career throws with a 7.82 YPA, 61:25 TD-to-INT ratio, and 35 rushing scores. He earned second-team All-ACC as a senior. A dual threat in college, Williams turned in a disappointing Pro Day, running 4.81 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical. Williams offers toughness and plus arm strength, but his ball location was consistently poor in the ACC and Williams isn't athletic enough for a position switch. Williams likely lacks an NFL future, but we could envision him lighting up the Arena League.
May 1 - 1:19 PM

Ravens signed Colorado OT Stephane Nembot.

Nembot (6'7/322) converted from defensive end to offensive line at Colorado, going on to start for 3 1/2 seasons at right tackle before protecting the blind side for the final month of his senior year. A native of Cameroon, Nembot has vine-like arms (34 5/8") and huge hands (10 5'8"), and didn't begin playing football until his junior year in high school. Nembot has a long way to go, but he is a capable enough athlete with an intriguing enough build to be worth a look as a developemental project.
May 1 - 1:14 PM

Bears signed UTEP DE Roy Robertson-Harris.

Robertson-Harris (6'6/255) made 33 starts for the UTEP Miners, logging 24 career tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. He turned in a strong Pro Day workout, running 4.8-flat with a 35-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump. Lean, long armed, and plenty athletic, Robertson-Harris should've been a more dominant college player considering his physical prowess. He's a ball of clay his NFL coaching staff will try to mold into a useful edge player.
May 1 - 1:04 PM

Bears signed Oklahoma State CB Kevin Peterson.

Peterson (5'10/181) started all four years for the Cowboys, earning first-team All-Big 12 as a senior. Although Peterson registered solid broad (10'1") and vertical (35 1/2") jumps at the Combine, he managed a 4.66 forty-yard dash. Peterson doesn't run well enough to play on the NFL perimeter, and lacks the strength and tackling consistency to operate in the slot. He was a good college player who's not going to make it in the pros.
May 1 - 1:01 PM

Bears signed Mississippi State CB Taveze Calhoun.

Calhoun (6'0/192) made 36 starts for the Bulldogs, logging 12 career tackles for loss, six interceptions, and three forced fumbles. He demonstrated average athleticm at the Combine, managing a 4.58 forty and 33 1/2-inch vertical. Known as a high-character player at Mississippi State, Calhoun is an underwhelming pro prospect who got beat deep too often in the SEC and defended the run poorly. He'd do well to carve out a career as a No. 4 corner.
May 1 - 12:58 PM

Browns signed Florida State DT Nile Lawrence-Stample.

Lawrence-Stample (6'1/320) was a two-year starter for the Seminoles, rebounding from an injury-plagued junior year to post 3.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks as a senior en route to first-team All-ACC honors from the conference's coaches. Lawrence-Stample is a thicky-built fire hydrant with run-stuffing potential, but he offers zero in the way of pass rush and didn't dominate on early downs at FSU. Lawrence-Stample was an overrated college player with an NFL backup's ceiling.
