Zach Ertz spent two weeks this offseason working with former Cowboys OL coach Hudson Houck on his blocking.

Houck is one of the greatest offensive line coaches in NFL history. Ertz has also spent time on strength training and mixed martial arts. After he only played 50.3 percent of the Eagles' offensive snaps last season, the Philly Inquirer believes there's "ample" reason to believe Ertz will truly break out as a third-year tight end. Between Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy, the Eagles have 180 targets to replace.

The Nashville Tennessean suggests Wesley Woodyard could be the "odd man out" of the Titans' inside linebacker picture this year.

Zach Brown is coming back from injury, and Avery Williamson established himself as a building block at ILB last year. One of GM Ruston Webster's many poor free agent signings, Woodyard inked a four-year, $16 million deal with the Titans last offseason. He was a liability against the run throughout 2014.

Eagles agreed to terms with QB Tim Tebow on a one-year contract.

Although the move will generate countless headlines, Tebow is a flier signing as the Eagles begin their offseason program. Sam Bradford is the penciled-in starter with Mark Sanchez backing him up, and G.J. Kinne and Matt Barkley likely vying with Tebow to be third string. The Eagles have tried trading Barkley, but found no takers. Tebow has not played in the NFL since 2012. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Patriots, completing 11-of-30 passes for 145 yards (4.8 YPA), two touchdowns, and two interceptions, taking seven sacks among 37 dropbacks. He did rush 16 times for 91 yards (5.7 YPC). Tebow turns 28 in August.

Cody Latimer says he saw so little playing time as a rookie because he didn't fully grasp Peyton Manning's offense.

It's not particularly surprising. The Broncos also had wideouts in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders that were simply better than Latimer. "It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer acknowledged. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower." Latimer worked out with Manning at Duke University this offseason and is in position to be Denver's No. 3 receiver.

The Cardinals announced Sunday that they will hold a press conference for free agent SS Adrian Wilson.

Wilson will presumably retire as a Cardinal. The 35-year-old tried a comeback attempt in Bears training camp last summer, but was released before final cuts. Wilson hasn't played an NFL snap since 2012.

Alfred Blue has spent the offseason training with Adrian Peterson.

They're working with personal trainer James Cooper. Blue should soak up as much as he can from A.D. The 23-year-old showed limited talent as a rookie, plodding his way to 528 yards on 169 carries (3.12 YPC). Arian Foster has missed 11 games over the last two seasons. Blue is penciled in as the handcuff.

Danny Woodhead said he's "not even thinking about" his injury anymore.

Woodhead said he feels "really, really good." He suffered a nasty ankle injury early last season but that's well in the past. He'll participate in the team's offseason program without any restrictions. The 30-year-old should safely return as the Chargers' passing-down specialist this season.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy is getting himself prepared for the team's offseason program by putting in 10 workouts a week.

McCoy's training includes two workouts on Mondays and Wednesdays, three on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and then a three-day recovery period. McCoy's goal is to be ready for crunch time in December. As long as he isn't overdoing it, the Bucs have to be impressed with McCoy's commitment to staying in shape. They invested an eight-year, $108.56 million deal in McCoy last October.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Jimmy Garoppolo "looks like a linebacker" this offseason.

Belichick told that to Garoppolo's QB coach Jeff Christensen back in February. Garoppolo clearly prioritized adding muscle mass this offseason. Garoppolo was terrific last preseason, posting a 7.8 YPA on 79 pass attempts with a 5:1 TD-to-INT ratio. The 62nd pick in last May's draft, Garoppolo would be a candidate for low-end QB1 production if something happened to Tom Brady.

According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, it would take "at least a first-round pick and more compensation" for the Vikings to consider trading Adrian Peterson.

That's quite a haul for a 30-year-old running back who hasn't played since Week 1 of last season. The "compensation" the Vikings are looking for is a starting cornerback, a position they're expected to address in the draft. The Vikings' front office feels the team is "so much better" with Peterson and they're absolutely right. Peterson is a foundational runner and an ideal complement to rising sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Alfonzo Dennard has spent the offseason working out with teammates Duron Harmon, Devin McCourty and Tavon Wilson in Arizona.

He's working to get back on the Patriots' radar after falling behind Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan on the depth chart. Dennard seems to finally be over the hamstring injury that plagued him most of last season. Cutting Dennard would only cost New England $14,000 in dead money so his roster spot is far from secure. Dennard is in the final year of his rookie deal.

According to a study done by Football Perspective, Richard Sherman was the least targeted cornerback in the NFL last season.

The ball was thrown in his direction 65 times on 552 passing plays, 25.5 fewer times than the average corner. This confirms Sherman is still the most feared corner in football. Even NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers steered clear of Sherman, avoiding him completely in a Week 1 loss. The Legion of Boom lost Byron Maxwell, but as long as Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor are around, the Seahawks will have one of the league's most impenetrable secondaries.

The Cowboys have until May 3 to exercise Morris Claiborne's fifth-year option.

It's going to be hard to judge Claiborne (torn patellar tendon) while he's out of commission. Jerry Jones said in January that Claiborne has done enough to warrant a fifth year, but that hasn't been evident on the field.

Denard Robinson (foot) was cleared to resume football activities in February.

Robinson sat out the final three games of 2014 with a torn ligament in his foot. Shoelace showed plus versatility when healthy, racking up 706 yards on 158 touches. Despite his emergence, Robinson is viewed by the Jaguars as a change-of-pace back. The Jags are likely to draft a running back. On the off chance they don't, Toby Gerhart and Storm Johnson will also be in the mix for carries.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny hopes to be back to his normal playing weight by training camp.

Posluszny's weight dropped to 223 after undergoing chest surgery, but he's already back up to 235 and should be close to his normal weight of 242 by the time camp opens. He will be someone to target in IDP leagues this season.
