NFL Network's LaDainian Tomlinson doesn't think Philip Rivers will be the Chargers' quarterback this season.

Tomlinson, of course, was Rivers' running back for four seasons. LT has strong connections to the Chargers' organization. "I don't know if Philip wants to be there anymore. I think he has lost confidence in the organization. Him not wanting to go to L.A. is very valid," Tomlinson said. "Philip could be looking at the situation and thinking 'we're not close to winning a championship anytime soon.'"

Chargers FS Eric Weddle skipped the first day of voluntary workouts Monday and is in search of a new contract.

Weddle, 30, is owed a $7.5 million salary in the final year of his deal. "I feel highly, highly disrespected," he said. "... There is no reason for me to put out any more effort." The Chargers have been trying to reach out to Philip Rivers about an extension and, to this point, ignored Weddle's requests. Weddle is a three-time Pro Bowler and the Chargers' defensive captain.

Seahawks re-signed C/G Lemuel Jeanpierre.

Jeanpierre appeared in all 16 games in 2013, but didn't spend much time on the active roster last season before being signed to make three late-season starts Weeks 13-15. He'll compete for a depth interior line job this summer.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks was a no-show for the first day of voluntary offseason workouts Monday.

While these workouts are "voluntary" in nature, players are expected to attend. Kendricks has been the subject of trade rumors in recent weeks after the Eagles extended DeMeco Ryans' contract and acquired Kiko Alonso from the Bills in exchange for LeSean McCoy. Kendricks is entering the final year of his rookie deal and may be holding out in the hopes of a trade or long-term contract.

Giants franchise player RE Jason Pierre-Paul did not attend the first day of voluntary workouts Monday.

This doesn't come as a surprise, as many tagged players do this on an annual basis. JPP was in the building on Monday, but didn't work out with the team as he continues to angle for a long-term contract. Per the Star-Ledger, the team hasn't even offered JPP a multi-year pact and remains content letting him play out his one-year, $14.8 million tender. JPP is still just 26.

Rams re-signed restricted free agent FS Rodney McLeod to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

McLeod and SS T.J. McDonald each played over 1,000 snaps for the Rams last season. McLeod is tiny at 5'11/183, but graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover safety and laid a couple big licks on receivers downfield last season. The Rams could use an upgrade on the back end, but McLeod is plenty serviceable.

Rams re-signed restricted free agent FB/TE Cory Harkey to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

Harkey will slot back in as the Rams' fullback and No. 3 tight end after Lance Kendricks re-upped on a three-year contract last month. He's not a great lead blocker but has good hands and can move out in space as a bigger man.
Apr 20 - 6:53 PM

Rams re-signed restricted free agent QB Austin Davis to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

The Rams tendered Davis at the lowest level, and it wouldn't have required any other team to part with a draft pick to sign him. It's a sign neither St. Louis nor the rest of the league thinks that highly of Davis. He'll compete with Case Keenum and a rookie for the Rams' backup job behind new starter Nick Foles.

Steelers re-signed restricted free agent FB Will Johnson to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

Johnson played 221 snaps as Le'Veon Bell's lead blocker last season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 11 fullback. He also has 29 catches in three years.
Apr 20 - 6:45 PM

Browns re-signed restricted free agent S Johnson Bademosi to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

Bademosi played one defensive snap last season, as he's merely a special teams player where he racked up 12 combined tackles running down kicks.
Apr 20 - 6:43 PM

Browns re-signed restricted free agent ILB Craig Robertson to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

The Browns tendered Robertson at the second-round level, so he was clearly staying in Cleveland. Robertson split time with Chris Kirksey next to veteran Karlos Danby last season and received positive marks in pass coverage. Depending on Kirksey's development, Robertson's snaps could be cut in 2015.

Updating a previous item, the agent for Boise State RB Jay Ajayi says his client did not attend the Combine medical recheck last weekend.

Prospects with medical concerns are annually told to attend the Combine medical recheck. Agent Eric Burkhardt says Ajayi was not told to attend, which suggests NFL teams are comfortable with the condition of his knee despite reports to the contrary. As we originally suspected, the concern over Ajayi's knee appears to have been overblown, and may have been disseminated as a "smokescreen" by clubs hoping Ajayi falls to them in the draft.

A source close to the situation told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the Vikings will likely not trade Adrian Peterson if they can't find a taker before or during the draft.

"If he's not traded next week, they're going to keep him," said the source. In other words, the Vikings want a draft pick this year for Peterson, and potentially a player. The source named Arizona, Atlanta, Dallas, Jacksonville, San Diego, and Tampa Bay as potential trade partners for Minnesota. The source added that he would be surprised if the Vikings could get a first-round pick for Peterson. "If they got a second-round pick and a player, they'd be doing well," the source said.

The Bengals will give second-year CB Darqueze Dennard "every opportunity" to start this season.

With Terence Newman gone to Minnesota, Dennard's primary competition for the Bengals' left cornerback job will be Dre Kirkpatrick. Dennard played only 77 snaps as a rookie, but not necessarily because he disappointed the team. Newman was a stalwart starter and Kirkpatrick played well in late-season chances. Bengals DC Paul Guenther reportedly remains "really high" on Dennard, who was the 24th overall pick in last year's draft.

The Ravens are hoping Dennis Pitta (hip surgeries) gives them an answer on his playing future by the summer.

Owner Steve Bisciotti said earlier this month that the Ravens are "praying" Pitta returns. Pitta, 30 in June, has suffered two hip dislocations and fractures in as many years. The Ravens plan to use a middle-round draft pick at tight end. For now, Crockett Gillmore is penciled in as Baltimore's starter.
