Speaking to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Johnny Manziel's father said, "My son is a druggie and he needs help."

"Hopefully he doesn't die before he comes to his senses," said Paul Manziel. "I hate to say it but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him." This isn't the first time Manziel's father has publicly pleaded for Johnny to seek help and it probably won't be the last. Earlier this week, Manziel's lawyer Bob Hinton accidentally revealed to the Associated Press that he's seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case. Things just keep getting worse for Johnny Football.

Rams waived LB Matthew Wells.

Receiver J.J. Worton was also cut on Friday. A sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2015, Wells was traded to the Bears during training camp but couldn't survive the last round of cuts. He signed a futures deal with the Rams after joining the practice squad in November. The 25-year-old has yet to play a regular season snap.

Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo said fifth-round RB Jonathan Williams "looked very steady" during OTAs.

Rookies often have a tough time adjusting to the speed of the NFL but Capaccio said Williams never looked "out of place" at OTAs. It might be hard for Williams to carve a role for himself with LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams ahead of him on the depth chart. Head coach Rex Ryan also praised the performances of Mike Gillislee and James Wilder during OTAs. Running back is going to be a position to watch at Bills camp this summer.

WESH Orlando reports free agent Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested for allegedly threatening his wife with a gun.

According to the police report, Jackson was intoxicated when he pulled a loaded gun on his wife and threatened to kill her. Jackson was visiting family in Kissimmee, Florida when the alleged assault took place. Jackson's children were reportedly asleep during the incident. Obviously no team is going to go near Jackson until his legal affairs are in order.

According to the Associated Press, Johnny Manziel's lawyer is seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case.

Defense attorney Bob Hinton also expressed doubts about Manziel's sobriety. "Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle," said Hinton in a text message that was intended for another lawyer but was actually sent to the Associated Press. In the exchange, Hinton also hinted that Manziel may have spent over $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store only 15 hours after being getting into a hit-and-run accident. Manziel's life continues to spiral out of control. At this point, it would be a shock if he ever plays another NFL snap.

Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo believes third-round DL Adolphus Washington might see limited playing time on early downs this season.

GM Doug Whaley committed to Washington as a Week 1 starter earlier this offseason but Capaccio still needs convincing. Capaccio complimented Washington's athleticism but feels he still needs to work on "gap-responsibility and going down the line of scrimmage to make plays." That makes Washington somewhat of a liability in base sets. At least Washington has seen plenty of reps this offseason with Kyle Williams still recovering from offseason knee injury.

Saints signed DT C.J. Wilson.

Kyle Williams was placed on injured reserve in the corresponding roster move. Wilson appeared in 12 games last season, recording 11 tackles and one sack. The 29-year-old spent his first four years in Green Bay after entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2010.

Saints placed CB Kyle Wilson on injured reserve.

The Saints haven't disclosed his injury. Wilson entered the league as a first-round pick in 2010 but hasn't lived up to expectations. He's logged just four interceptions over 95 career games including one in 15 contests last season. The 28-year-old is headed for free agency after this season.

Seahawks.com reporter John Boyle expects Kevin Smith, Kasen Williams and Douglas McNeil to compete for the final wide receiver spot at training camp.

Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson (assuming he's healthy) will all be on the roster, leaving Smith, Williams and McNeil to battle for one or two spots. Smith should enter camp as the favorite. He outsnapped Williams 215 to 39 last season while earning five targets compared to just one for Williams. McNeil never saw the field in 2015 after joining Seattle's practice squad late in the year.

Texans WRs coach Sean Ryan was pleased with undrafted rookie Wendell Williams' performance at OTAs.

"I was happy," said Ryan. "There was a learning curve for him, but he's another guy who's really dedicated to learning and making some strides. The speed, you can't teach that." Williams was a track star in college and timed an official 4.32 forty leading up to the draft. The 25-year-old is hoping to make the team as a gadget player in the mold of Tavon Austin or Percy Harvin. He scored 15 touchdowns in his senior year at University of the Cumberlands, logging eight receiving touchdowns, three rushing scores and four return touchdowns (three kickoffs, one punt return).

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, the Broncos haven't engaged in contract discussions with franchise player Von Miller since early this month.

In other words, nothing has changed. The sides are still at an impasse with Miller angling for more guaranteed money. The reigning Super Bowl MVP has threatened to sit out the season if the Broncos don't meet his demands but that seems extremely unlikely. The deadline for the two sides to reach a long-term deal is July 15.

Matthew Stafford believes WR T.J. Jones could be in for a breakout season.

After playing limited snaps as a rookie, Jones should play a much bigger role in year two as the Lions look to replace top wideout Calvin Johnson. Jones came on strong late last season, logging eight targets against the Rams in Week 14 and later scoring his first touchdown against the 49ers in Week 16. Head coach Jim Caldwell praised Jones for his versatility. "He can catch screens for you. He can take off and go when he gets a seam," said Caldwell. "We really expect him to come forward and be a little bit more of a prominent threat." Jones isn't on the fantasy radar yet but he's trending in the right direction.

Browns signed No. 99 overall pick OLB Joe Schobert to a four-year contract.

Cleveland has now signed 13 of its 14 picks from this year's draft with third-round DE Carl Nassib the lone holdout. Schobert started 28 of 45 games during his four-year stay in Wisconsin and was named to the Big 10 and All-American teams as a senior in 2015. He's ticketed for a special teams role in year one.

The NFL will interview Clay Matthews next month about an Al-Jazeera report that linked Matthews and others to performance enhancing drugs.

The interview will be conducted when Packers camp opens on July 29. Julius Peppers, Mike Neal and James Harrison will be interviewed as well. It's unclear if Peyton Manning, who was also named in the report, will be asked to meet with league officials. Charlie Sly, a former intern at The Guyer Institute in Indiana, connected Matthews and others to PEDs but has since retracted his allegations.

Lions.com reporter Tim Twentyman considers DE Devin Taylor a candidate for double-digit sacks this season.

Taylor should be plenty motivated heading into his walk year. He finished second on the team with seven sacks last season and could face a lot of one-on-one blocks with Ziggy Ansah and Haloti Ngata attracting attention on the other side of the line. The 2013 fourth-round pick is slated to begin the year as a starter for the first time in his career.
