Jarvis Landry is considered the "front-runner" to keep the Dolphins' punt return job in 2015.

Landry will assume every-down duties at receiver, but he remains the Fins' best option on kick and punt returns, as well. Landry ranked fourth in the NFL in kickoff return average as a rookie. Landry's low aDOT (Average Depth of Target) in some ways caps his fantasy ceiling, but he set a 105-catch pace over the final nine weeks of 2014 and has added value in return-yardage leagues.

Marqise Lee is expected to be a full participant when the Jaguars begin training camp practices on Friday.

Dogged by injuries since his final year at USC, Lee missed three games with a hamstring strain as a rookie, and all of OTAs/minicamp this offseason with an ailing knee. "I know there’s a lot of questions and things like that, but I don’t have a doubt with Marqise," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said on Thursday. "I really like what I’ve seen in him and his approach."

Profootballtalk passes along "belief in league circles" that the Seahawks could finalize Russell Wilson's extension within "the next 48 hours."

Both sides have gone to great lengths to posture through the media, releasing contract-proposal numbers and even telling some media outlets Wilson could be an ex-Seahawk by next offseason. (The latter was never, ever going to happen.) It's rumored the Seahawks are willing to up their offer, likely in an effort to compromise. Wilson would also have to give something in that compromise, of course. It sounds like an accord may be imminent.

Bengals waived WR Cobi Hamilton.

A 2013 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas, Hamilton was never much of a receiving prospect and didn't make enough special teams noise to earn a game-day roster spot. The 24-year-old should generate scant interest on waivers.

Bills placed CB Leodis McKelvin (ankle) on the active/PUP list.

McKelvin was expected to be ready for camp after breaking his ankle last November, but is apparently still healing up. There's little reason to doubt McKelvin's Week 1 status, but it's surprising he's still not ready to go.

Browns fourth-round WR Vince Mayle (broken pinkie) has resumed catching passes.

Mayle was in a cast all spring, but has shed it for training camp. He played through the injury his senior season at Washington State, dropping a boatload of passes in the process. There are targets for the taking in Cleveland, but a slow-footed possession receiver, we're skeptical Mayle will take them.

Bears LT Jermon Bushrod missed the "majority" of the offseason program with a back injury, but is healthy for camp.

It's notable because Bushrod had a bit of an injury-plagued 2014, missing time with knee and ankle issues. He missed only two games, but had missed zero contests over his previous four seasons. Bushrod turns 31 next month, and is an all-important cog as the Bears attempt to pull their offense out of the gutter.

Second-year LT Taylor Lewan thinks the Titans' offensive line was "soft" last season.

"And I think (OL coach) Bob Bostad would say the same thing," Lewan said. "That’s one thing he’s definitely been preaching this offseason. We want to be tough, we want to road grade, we want to run that power like no one’s ever done it." We don't know about "soft," but the Titans' line was definitely ineffective last season, especially in the passing game. As for Lewan, he showed promise on the blindside. He's a nice building block for Marcus Mariota to stand behind.

Seahawks LE Michael Bennett reported for the start of training camp on Thursday.

Bennett has been expressing displeasure with his contract since approximately five minutes after the Seahawks didn't give the ball to Marshawn Lynch in Super Bowl XLIX, but has reported all the same. Headed into his age-30 season, Bennett is set to make $6 million. Perhaps he thinks playing the good soldier will get some extra bucks kicked his way, but it's unlikely.

Johnny Manziel struggled out of the gate as the Browns opened camp Thursday.

Working exclusively with the second-stringers, Manziel's first four dropbacks went like this: Sack, sack, pass nearly intercepted, pass batted down at the line. Rehab may not have been the answer to Johnny Football's on-field woes. We're not going to overreact to one padless practice in July, but the Browns have already said the gap between starter Josh McCown and Manziel is wide.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor was a no-show for the start of training camp on Thursday.

Word spread Wednesday that Chancellor was considering a holdout, and it appears he's followed through. That being said, it doesn't become official until Chancellor skips Friday's practice. Chancellor is already one of the league's highest-paid safeties, but he must think the time is right to angle for a raise with FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) shaky for Week 1. ESPN's Jim Trotter has reported the 'Hawks have "no intentions" of giving in. Chancellor risks $30,000 a day in fines.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports third-rounder WR Sammie Coates has had a quiet camp thus far.

"Haven't noticed much out of Coates," were the words of beat writer Mark Kaboly. His observation comes two days after Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported Coates "has got work to do." It sounds like Coates could have trouble earning No. 4 duties this summer, and begin the year as a weekly inactive.

Duke Ihenacho is getting the "first crack" at the Redskins' strong-safety job.

He's competing with Jeron Johnson. Our money has been on Johnson, but Ihenacho took all the first-team reps on Thursday. "We’re going to go out there and let them play," coach Jay Gruden said. "Duke’s done a good job so far, and those guys are going to line up and see what happens."

Broncos GM John Elway wants the running game to be Peyton Manning's "best friend" in 2015.

"Number one, we're going to have good balance on the offensive side," Elway insisted Thursday. "What I can say, late in my career, that was my best friend, the running game. And I think that running game will be Peyton's best friend also." With Manning's arm dying a slow death, the Broncos are going to ramp up the model they used down the stretch last season under run-oriented coach Gary Kubiak. Manning is still going to sling it, but you can comfortably take the under on the 613 attempts he's averaged the past three seasons. Manning could have a hard time living up to his current ADP of QB3.

The Miami Herald considers Rishard Matthews the "strong front-runner" for the Dolphins' No. 5 receiver duties.

Matthews demanded to be traded or released earlier this offseason, but the Dolphins ignored him. The only way he'll begin the year higher than No. 5 on the depth chart is if DeVante Parker (foot surgery) isn't ready for Week 1. Matthews could still end up cut or dealt.
