ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes the "odds are stacked against" Browns G/C John Greco for a 53-man roster spot.

Greco is recovering from Lisfranc surgery, and the Browns added a ton of bodies on the interior offensive line in new C J.C. Tretter and RG Kevin Zeitler, while LG Joel Bitonio is coming back from foot surgery of his own. Greco, 32, remains a quality player and would draw interest quickly if cut.

The Ravens want third-year RB Buck Allen to be more decisive when running the ball.

A fourth-rounder in 2015, Allen appeared in all 16 games as a rookie, making six starts, and ran the ball 137 times for 514 yards (3.8 YPC) and one score. Last season, however, Allen made just eight appearance with nine total carries and was a healthy scratch much of the second half of the year. With the addition of Danny Woodhead, Allen's roster spot could be in jeopardy, especially once Kenneth Dixon's four-game suspension is over after the first month.

Breshad Perriman said his concentration level is at an "all-time high" entering his third NFL season.

Perriman has had a brutally hard-luck start to his NFL career, missing his entire first season with a PCL injury and then enduring the loss of close friend CB Tray Walker and a debilitating illness to his father, Brett. "I feel like my concentration level is at a pretty high level right now — an all-time high," Perriman said. "I'm just going out there, and when I'm on the field, I'm not thinking about anything but football." Perriman has drawn plaudits from TE Dennis Pitta and HC John Harbaugh at OTAs.

NFL suspended free agent CB Justin Gilbert four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

It helps explain Gilbert's February release by the Steelers. Still only 25, Gilbert appeared in 12 games for the Steelers last season, but played only 12 snaps on defense. Gilbert is probably just about out of NFL chances.

49ers.com reports ILB Navorro Bowman (Achilles') has been "full-speed" during the offseason program.

There were similar reports during April minicamp. Bowman went down last Week 4. Reuben Foster, Malcolm Smith and Brock Coyle have all been added to the 49ers' linebacker corps since the end of last season, but as long as his health cooperates, 29-year-old Bowman should be something resembling a starter.

Saints CB P.J. Williams says he's recovered from the concussion that ended his 2016 season.

Williams was knocked unconscious by a Week 2 hit, and ended up on injured reserve. The No. 78 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Williams missed his entire rookie season with a torn hamstring. "That was my first concussion ever," Williams assured. "I feel like the way I play and stuff like that, that shouldn't happen. So, I'm not thinking about that at all." Even with first-rounder Marshon Lattimore aboard, Williams could be an important piece of depth for a pass defense that was undermanned, as usual, last season.

Seahawks signed second-round DL Malik McDowell to a four-year contract.

The No. 35 overall pick, McDowell was the Seahawks' top selection. Capable of rushing the passer from any spot along the defensive line, McDowell is ticketed for outside, sub-package work as a rookie. McDowell is a top athlete to go along with a huge frame (6'6/295), but has faced questions about his motor and work ethic.

Jaguars ILB Myles Jack fully expects to be a three-down player in 2017.

Jack has been ticketed for Paul Posluszny's old job, with Posluszny transitioning to the strong-side. Jack is expected to be the Jags' defensive play-caller this season. He said Posluszny is at peace with the change. The No. 36 overall pick of last year's draft, Jack was limited to 239 rookie snaps as the Jaguars eased him into action following a college knee injury. Jack has the upside to be a play-making dynamo.

Jets signed CB Corey White, formerly of the Bills.

White can supposedly play safety, but has manned corner his entire NFL career. Capable of playing both inside and out, he's a versatile depth piece, though not a terribly-effective one. White played 412 snaps on defense for the Bills in 2016.
May 25 - 6:22 PM

Free agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins visited the Jets on Thursday.

Thompkins couldn't make the Jets last year, getting waived at final cuts. The ex-Patriot has 38 catches since the end of the 2013 season. He turns 29 in July.

Odell Beckham says he will be present for mandatory minicamp.

The Giants and Giants media are treating Beckham skipping "voluntary" OTAs like the crime of the century, but he's merely abiding by the CBA. The NFL would be best served by abolishing the farcical notion that teams respect offseason workouts as "voluntary." Beckham, who has two years remaining on his rookie deal, is in extension territory.
May 25 - 4:30 PM

Bucs signed second-round S Justin Evans to a four-year contract.

Physical with plus ball skills, Evans was a playmaker as a two-year starter for Texas A&M. He tested as an elite athlete at the Combine, and offers big-play ability on special teams. Evans, J.J. Wilcox and Ryan Smith are the Bucs' top three safeties.
May 25 - 4:02 PM

The Saints have been working on Adrian Peterson's pass-catching ability in OTAs.

As the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Matt Vensel points out, this was a common offseason storyline for Peterson with the Vikings. Peterson has topped 30 receptions just once since 2010, and the Saints have better receiving backs in Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and Travaris Cadet. Peterson's usage won't change much in New Orleans.

Michael Thomas has bulked up from 210 pounds to 220.

By Pro Football Focus' count, Thomas broke 20 tackles as a rookie, fourth most amongst receivers. He will now be even harder to take down. The WR9 by total points last season, Thomas could explode to truly elite status in 2017 with Brandin Cooks out of the picture. Thomas led New Orleans in catches, targets and touchdowns last year.
May 25 - 3:42 PM

Demaryius Thomas says he feels the best he's felt since coming into the NFL.

"This is the best I've felt in my whole career," was Thomas' exact quote. Thomas dealt with a hip issue for all of 2016, getting hurt on literally the first play of the year. Headed into his age-30 season, Thomas is gunning for his sixth-straight 1,000-yard campaign.
