Vikings signed second-round CB Mackensie Alexander to a four-year contract.

He gets a $1.34 million signing bonus. Alexander was a fringe first-round prospect who dropped to the Vikings at No. 54 overall possibly due to character concerns. He's reportedly very difficult to deal with off the field. Alexander will probably be the Vikings' No. 4/sub-package corner as a rookie.

49ers re-signed restricted free agent ILB Michael Wilhoite to a one-year, $1.671 million contract.

Wilhoite has finally decided to sign his tender. He was easily the last one to do so. Wilhoite struggled as a starter last season and will face competition from Gerald Hodges for the job next to ILB NaVorro Bowman.

Baylor DE Shawn Oakman has drawn zero interest as an undrafted free agent.

Baylor coach Art Briles said no teams have called him regarding Oakman. The 6-foot-8, 269-pound All-American was arrested last month on sexual assault charges, and it was later revealed he also roughed up his ex-girlfriend back in 2013. Oakman won't be with a team until the legal matters are resolved, and even then, Oakman may have a tough time finding work. Before the 2015 season, he was being viewed as a shoo-in first-round pick.

Vikings signed No. 227 overall pick DE Stephen Weatherly to a four-year contract.

He gets an $81,288 signing bonus. Weatherly has the makings of a potential seventh-round contributor after doing well in pre-draft workouts, even if he wasn't all that productive at Vanderbilt. He'll need to carve out a role on special teams first before having thoughts of sacking the quarterback.

According to TE Garrett Celek, Blaine Gabbert has been "definitely taking control" as the starting quarterback at 49ers' voluntary workouts.

"Whoever’s at quarterback needs to take control and be our leader out there. And he’s definitely doing that," Celek said. "I think he’s definitely developing more and more as the days go on." Gabbert is the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback at these very elementary workouts because Colin Kaepernick (thumb, knee, shoulder) remains on the shelf and isn't expected to be cleared until June 1. When Kap does gain clearance, he and Gabbert are expected to compete for the starting job. Gabbert is getting an early leg up in coach Chip Kelly's new offense.

Vikings signed No. 188 overall pick TE David Morgan to a four-year contract.

Morgan gets a $135,456 signing bonus at his draft slot. He showed well in agility drills in pre-draft workouts, but ran extremely slow at 5.02 in the forty. Morgan's ticket to the roster will be special teams and blocking skill.

710 Seattle's Danny O'Neil believes sixth-round C Joey Hunt will compete with Patrick Lewis for the Seahawks' starting center job.

Not only does O'Neil believe Hunt will compete to start, he "thinks" Hunt will actually beat Lewis out for the gig. The Seahawks are completely overhauling their offensive line this year. Lewis was PFF's No. 21 center last season. Hunt is undersized at 6'/295, but size has never seemed to bother Seattle.

Matthew Stafford mentioned third-year WR T.J. Jones as a potential breakout candidate.

After losing Calvin Johnson to retirement and then signing Marvin Jones, the Lions stood pat at receiver in this past week's draft. Jones is currently slotted in as the Lions' No. 3/4 receiver in competition with Jeremy Kerley. At 6'/190, Jones probably has a leg up on Kerley in three-wide sets since Kerley profiles as more of a slot receiver, and that's where Golden Tate lines up in three-wide. Jones posted a 9-121-1 line over the final five weeks last season.

Dolphins first-round OT Laremy Tunsil's attorneys are investigating Tunsil's ex-business manager/financial adviser for leaking the draft-day bong video.

The ex-adviser is believed to have potentially accessed Tunsil's Twitter and Instagram accounts off Tunsil's old phone after the adviser bought Tunsil a new one within the past six months. Tunsil hired this man back in October, but later let him go after learning he wasn't registered with the NFLPA. The adviser could face up to 10 years in prison, along with more than $7 million in liability.

Vikings signed seventh-round S Jayron Kearse to a four-year contract.

What's important to Kearse, is he gets a $64,224 signing bonus. Kearse is the nephew of former Titans Pro Bowl DE Jevon "The Freak" Kearse. The Clemson product is going to have to carve out a role on special teams to make it.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie talked up fifth-round RB DeAndre Washington, calling him "more than just a third-down back; he's a complete back."

"He can pound it up in there," McKenzie continued. "When he gets out in space, he can make you look silly. He can catch the ball, but he can run between the tackles as well as well as bouncing it outside. We think he’s the total package as a runner." It's notable because the Raiders spent a good portion of the offseason talking about how they wanted to add to their backfield and get Latavius Murray some help/competition. Washington has been the only addition. He'll have a chance to carve out a significant role in year one.

Free agent G/C Matt Slauson will visit the Chargers and Bills.

Slauson is visiting the Chargers on Wednesday, and will then make the trip to Buffalo. He was drafted by coach Rex Ryan with the Jets in 2009. Buffalo reportedly envisions Slauson as a right tackle. Slauson was Pro Football Focus' No. 18 guard last season, excelling in pass protection. He has position versatility, being able to play either guard spot or center.

Updating a previous item, Saints LT Terron Armstead's five-year extension is worth $64.5 million and contains $38 million guaranteed.

Armstead gets $25 million fully guaranteed. His new $12.9 million annual average is now third among left tackles, behind Trent Williams and Cordy Glenn, who also inked a new five-year pact on Tuesday. Glenn's deal was a tick larger at $65 million overall, containing $26.5 million fully guaranteed.

Free agent LB O'Brien Schofield contends he has "good" offers on the table.

If so, then why hasn't he accepted one? Probably because they don't exist. Schofield has been trying to engage the Falcons in contract talks, but they've likely moved on after inking Courtney Upshaw earlier this spring. Schofield is 29 and saw his pass-rush production nosedive late in 2015.

The Newark Star-Ledger's Eliot Shorr-Parks left Eagles second-year CB JaCorey Shepherd off his latest 53-man roster projection.

Shepherd was merely a sixth-round pick last year, but he earned training camp reps with the starters at slot corner before tearing his ACL in August. Shepherd should be ready for the start of camp this summer, but there's a new regime in town. Shepherd was a very productive college corner at Kansas.
