According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles have "great interest" in UConn CB Byron Jones.

New Eagles personnel man Ed Marynowitz recently outlined Philly's draft approach and how they will use size-speed baselines to determine player targets. Jones stands 6-foot-1, 199 and blew up the Combine. He certainly fits the Eagles' cornerback mold with an ability to excel in press-man coverage.

NJ.com's Jordan Raanan predicts Miami T/G Ereck Flowers will be the Giants' pick at No. 9 overall.

Raanan says he'd fully expect the Giants to draft Clemson OLB/DE Vic Beasley if he lasts to No. 9, but doesn't anticipate Beasley making it there. Flowers would add run-blocking prowess to New York's offensive line, but is a major work in progress as a pass protector. He's best suited to play guard.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco expects a breakout year from second-year OLB Jeremiah Attaochu.

"We're excited about him," Telesco said. "We think he's got a really great future for us." The 50th overall pick in last year's draft, Attaochu missed five games to injuries as a rookie, playing just 161 snaps as a situational edge rusher. Now penciled in as San Diego's starter opposite Melvin Ingram, 22-year-old Attaochu is a candidate for a sophomore leap.

Free agent OL Mike Johnson visited with the Dolphins.

Johnson, 28, spent last year on I.R. with a Lisfranc injury. He also missed the entire 2013 season due to lower-leg issues. Johnson wouldn't be more than a veteran flier for Miami.

The Lions haven’t ruled out re-signing free agent OG Rodney Austin.

Austin was cut following domestic violence charges. GM Martin Mayhew left open the possibility Austin could return once his legal situation is resolved. As a first-time offender, Austin will be subject to a six-game suspension.

Lions GM Martin Mayhew plans to meet with SS James Ihedigbo.

Ihedigbo is skipping offseason workouts in search of a new deal. He’s due just $1.1M in the final year of his contract. A top-15 safety by PFF last season, Ihedigbo's holdout could extend into June's minicamp.

Jets re-signed restricted free agent S Jaiquawn Jarrett to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

A third-round pick of the Eagles in 2011, Jarrett was tendered at the original-pick level. He made five starts last year, grading out positively in pass coverage by PFF. Jarrett will return in a backup role behind Calvin Pryor and Marcus Gilchrist. Jarrett is also a plus special teams contributor.

Bills.com’s Chris Brown believes Cyrus Kouandjio "will be given every opportunity" to remain at right tackle.

Kouandjio was active for one game (zero snaps) as a rookie. At 6'7/322, he profiles as a strong fit for OC Greg Roman's run-heavy scheme and could be a candidate to start over incumbent RT Seantrel Henderson. Depending on what the Bills do in the draft, Kouandjio may also compete at one of the guard spots.

Bucs re-signed restricted free agent Bobby Rainey to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

Rainey finished last season as the No. 3 back behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims. He averaged 7.9 yards on punt returns and gives Tampa a veteran passing-down option. With the Bucs likely to add a running back in the draft, Rainey won't be guaranteed a roster spot.

Eagles rescinded their RFA tender to RB Chris Polk.

He becomes an unrestricted free agent. With DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews ahead of him, Polk wasn't worth his $1.54 million tender. Polk, 25, is a plodding short-yardage specialist with some special teams skills.

Odell Beckham believes Victor Cruz’s presence will force opposing defenses to pay less attention to him.

This assumes Cruz's patellar-tendon rehab goes smoothly. "It is going to be a lot easier," Beckham claimed. "You can’t really do the things you usually do, whether it's a safety over the top or things like that. If you put them one-on-one, I trust (myself) to win 99 percent of the time." Even without Cruz on the field, Beckham showed the ability to beat double teams last year.

The Chiefs have exercised NT Dontari Poe's fifth-year option, valued at $6.15 million.

He's now under contract through 2016. Poe was commonly billed as a "workout wonder" coming out of Memphis in 2012, but he's developed into one of the NFL's premier nose tackles. He did have a down year in 2014 run defense, but piled up a career-high six sacks. Poe doesn't turn 25 years old until August.

The dispute between Cowboys DLs Davon Coleman and Greg Hardy reportedly escalated when Coleman called Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy, of course, is facing a ten-game NFL suspension for domestic violence. The argument allegedly began when Hardy questioned Coleman's effort during a conditioning drill. Coleman followed up by getting personal with Hardy. The two defensive linemen were separated by teammates, and the confrontation never got physical. This is very likely to prove a non-story.

Suspended Cowboys RE Greg Hardy reportedly got into a verbal altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during conditioning drills on Friday.

Although it's being puffed up by multiple media outlets, the story -- linked below -- doesn't seem like a big deal at all. "Verbal altercations" happen all the time in competitive environments. Hardy and Coleman reportedly had to be separated after Hardy questioned Coleman's effort during a drill. Coleman's agent "said it was only a verbal argument and not a physical fight."

Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings was found to have a stress fracture in his foot during a recent team visit.

Clemmings "didn't feel pain, didn't know it existed" before going through a medical check. The severity of Clemmings' stress fracture is unknown, as is whether he needs surgery. The injury could cost him some spots on draft day.
