Dolphins signed second-round TE Mike Gesicki to a four-year contract.

Beat writers noted Gesicki struggled at OTAs, but he built momentum with a strong minicamp in June. On a barren tight end depth chart, only fully grasping Adam Gase's playbook stands in the way of Gesicki earning a Week 1 starting job.

Panthers signed first-round WR D.J. Moore to a four-year contract.

As is the case with all first-round rookie deals, Moore has a club option for year five. In Carolina, Moore is expected to start immediately opposite Devin Funchess, who is in his contract year. Moore was the first wide receiver selected in April's draft and is our No. 1 Dynasty rookie wideout from this class.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield "did not look ready to compete" with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns' starting quarterback job at OTAs and minicamp.

The Boston Globe had a similar report on Sunday. The Plain Dealer doesn't detail where exactly Mayfield is so far behind, but Taylor is a three-year starter with a 22-20 record the past three seasons on poorly-assembled Bills teams. He should open training camp as the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Still, Taylor would be beating the odds to keep the job beyond Cleveland's Week 11 bye.

Ex-Saints CB Delvin Breaux is signing with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

It's a one-year deal. Breaux could not get healthy enough for an NFL team after his devastating 2016 leg break. The Saints made a huge mistake during Breaux's recovery, misdiagnosing a stress fracture as a bruise. Neither side seemed interested in a reunion after that. Breaux has also had spine issues. This will be Breaux's second go-around in Hamilton. It's where he caught the Saints' attention in 2014. Going on 29, Breaux's odds of an NFL return after 2018 are not great but also not zero.

DallasCowboys.com's David Helman does not expect the Cowboys to re-sign suspended DL David Irving.

Playing on a one-year RFA tender, Irving might have had a chance to earn a long-term deal with a big season, but yet another four-game suspension seems to have closed that door. Helman thinks it is "highly unlikely" Dallas offers Irving a long-term deal and guesses they move on after the season. Irving has 11 sacks in 23 games the last two seasons.

Bengals first-round C Billy Price has been cleared from his pectoral injury.

Price suffered a partially torn pectoral while participating in the bench press event at the Combine. He said he was "way ahead of schedule" after the draft, and he has been cleared with weeks to spare before training camp. Price should open the season as the Bengals' starter at center.

Indy Star's Stephen Holder writes Eric Ebron "has been among the more impressive Colts" during the offseason program.

Ebron has been used all over the formation by new coach Frank Reich. "He’s really smart," Reich said. "And that’s really good because you want to use a guy with the versatility that he has and move him around and call all kinds of things with him." Even with Jack Doyle atop the depth chart, Ebron should see his fair share of targets in an offense desperate for playmakers behind T.Y. Hilton. He is a fine late-round stab in deeper leagues.

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo writes Ereck Flowers has been "impressing teammates and coaches at right tackle."

Angry about being replaced at left tackle, Flowers skipped a large chunk of the offseason program, but he was back in the fold and working as the first-team right tackle by minicamp. Showing well at his new position, Flowers looks likely to open the season as a starter. Patrick Omameh should start next to Flowers at right guard with Jon Halapio at center, rookie Will Hernandez at left guard, and Nate Solder at left tackle.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said fifth-round rookie Jaylen Samuels is "highly evolved in the passing game."

Samuels has been working as a running back with the Steelers, but he played everywhere during his time at NC State. That experience has given him some earned confidence in the passing game. "Not to be cocky or anything, but I just feel like I have great hands, great route-running," Samuels said. "As a runner, I can make guys miss in open space. That's kind of what I did in college, try to make guys miss in open space." Samuels is at best looking at a backup role behind Le'Veon Bell, but it would not be surprising to see him make some plays as a rookie.

1070 The Fan's Kevin Bowen reports Colts LB Tyrell Adams saw reps with the first-team defense during the offseason program.

Adams worked at the SAM spot in Indy's new 4-3 scheme, ahead of 2016 fourth-rounder Antonio Morrison. Adams made similar noise with the Raiders last year before playing just 99 snaps on defense, and second-round LB Darius Leonard has been sidelined by a hamstring injury. Still, it looks like Adams has a shot on a wide-open depth chart.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers will have a "running back by committee."

"We feel like we've got three guys that have all done, but they haven't done it over a long period of time," McCarthy said, "so I think it's just practical thinking from that position and realizing that it's a very demanding position." McCarthy did leave open the possibility of one player emerging as the clear option, but it sounds like all of Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery, and Aaron Jones will have a role to open the season, terrible news for each player's fantasy prospects. Perhaps someone emerges in camp, but this is shaping up as a situation to avoid.

Ben Roethlisberger said he is not worried about his contract.

"I have two years on my contract. I'm not going to be one to sit here and worry about my contract," Roethlisberger said. "It's important, too, to understand as quarterback of this team, sometimes you almost have to leave a little bit of money behind for other guys." Le'Veon Bell is the obvious "other guy," but Roethlisberger mentioned Maurkice Pouncey and Marcus Gilbert as players he hopes "get taken care of." Ben looked to be on retirement's doorstep last offseason, but now he seems to be in it for the long haul.

MMQB's Albert Breer writes Panthers first-round WR D.J. Moore "has looked the part" this offseason.

The first receiver off the board at No. 24 overall, Moore is a dynamic weapon who is dangerous after the catch, and he apparently showed off those traits during OTAs and minicamp. In addition to Breer's praise, Panthers.com's Max Henson wrote Moore is "more than ready to contribute." Even with Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and Christian McCaffrey all vying for targets, Moore has the talent to make a fantasy impact as a rookie.

Andrew Luck said the "pain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder is "gone."

"And it’s going to stay that way," the quarterback added. "My body doesn’t revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask." Luck finally threw a football in front of reporters and cameras last week, and he seems much more confident about his health than he was at this time last year. MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Colts will limit Luck in camp, giving him days off and monitoring his reps, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, it "remains up in the air" whether D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) will be ready for Week 1 against the Patriots.

"At this point, it's just when I feel ready to go and when the trainers and everybody feels it's best for me to get on the field and play a game," said Foreman. The 22-year-old was having an impressive rookie year before he went down with a ruptured Achilles in Week 11. Foreman sat out OTAs but said his rehab is going "really well" and hopes to be ready at some point during training camp. When healthy, the former Texas Longhorn will occupy a change-of-pace role behind starter Lamar Miller.
