Broncos CB Tevrin Brandon was the victim of a hit-and-run early Sunday morning in Neptune City, N.J.

Brandon, 24, was crossing the highway at an intersection around 2:24 AM when he was hit by a black Ford F-150. The driver fled the scene and is still on the loose. Brandon was briefly hospitalized before being released later that morning. The former Monmouth player is a second-year UDFA and roster long-shot.

Bears released DE Ray McDonald.

McDonald was immediately placed on a no-tolerance policy when the Bears signed him this past March. He was arrested on Monday for domestic violence and child endangerment after allegedly assaulting a woman who was holding a baby. McDonald will likely face a stiff penalty from the NFL. We would not bet on 31-year-old McDonald playing another down in the league.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chargers FS Eric Weddle will be a no-show for Organized Team Activities.

This has long been expected. Weddle wants a new contract and recently stated he won't report to workouts "anytime soon." Owed $7.5 million, Weddle is entering the last year of his contract. He turned 30 this past January.

According to the Santa Clara Police Department, Bears DE Ray McDonald is accused of physically assaulting a woman "while she was holding a baby."

The charge is misdemeanor domestic violence and child endangerment. Full details of the alleged assault still haven't been made public. Considering McDonald's history, it would be a surprise if he played in the NFL this year.

The Miami Herald considers Jay Ajayi the frontrunner to back up Lamar Miller, and believes he could "eventually challenge Miller for (the) starting job."

Both GM Dennis Hickey and football czar Mike Tannenbaum have said Ajayi has the ability to play all three downs. Were it not for questions about his right knee, Ajayi would have come off the board much earlier on draft weekend. At the very least, Ajayi should siphon passing-game targets from Miller.

Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor remains the favorite to start opposite Brent Grimes.

The Dolphins wanted to upgrade Taylor, but didn't take a cornerback until the 145th pick of the draft (Bobby McCain). Taylor is facing competition from Zack Bowman and potentially Will Davis. Davis is recovering from a torn ACL, and isn't expected to practice before training camp.

Adrian Peterson's agent hinted at a holdout in a Monday text message to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole.

"He is very very strong," Peterson's agent said. "He's like (Darrelle) Revis." Revis, of course, has become famous for winning contractual showdowns. Peterson seems to believe the Vikings committed an unforgivable sin by siding too closely with the NFL as his child-abuse scandal unfolded last fall. To date, the Vikings have been steadfast that AD will be in Minnesota this season. Peterson won't really be turning up the heat until he skips next month's minicamp and training camp.

Updating an earlier item, Bears DE Ray McDonald has been arrested on charges of domestic violence and child endangerment.

McDonald's third arrest in nine months will undoubtedly earn him his release from the Bears, and has likely ended his NFL career. McDonald, who is going on 31, has become a poisonous asset.

Bears DE Ray McDonald has been arrested on a domestic violence charge.

This is the third time McDonald has been accused of violence against women in the last nine months. Details on this incident are still emerging, but there's a possibility of child endangerment as well. McDonald previously escaped discipline from both the police and the NFL on the first two incidents, one of which was an alleged rape that occurred during a party and another alleged domestic incident of a pregnant woman. The Bears signed McDonald, formerly of the 49ers, to a one-year, non-guaranteed $1.05M contract in March. Expect him to be cut shortly as GM Ryan Pace tries to save face.

Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') is a candidate for reserve/PUP.

Not only is Milliner coming off an Achilles' tendon rupture, but he's also been put in the toaster whenever he's been on the field. The smart play will be to let the former No. 9 overall pick take his time while watching Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine do their thing. Cutting a player with Milliner's talent while he has two fully guaranteed years left on his contract would be silly.

NFL.com's Chris Wesseling says Charles Sims' film called to mind "a slow-motion C.J. Spiller, lacking the explosive lateral agility and breakaway speed while showing nothing between the tackles."

We always take player evaluations from ex-Rotoworld legend Wesseling seriously. In fairness to Sims, he opened the year on PUP due to ankle surgery and was playing behind an atrocious offensive line in a broken offense. Still, he forced just six missed tackles on 66 rushes and averaged a terrible 1.36 yards after contact per attempt. Sims is a threat to max out as a strict "passing back," even as the Bucs' coaching staff talks him up relentlessly.

The Philadelphia Inquirer leaves ILB Najee Goode off their 53-man roster projection.

The Eagles are stacked at inside linebacker, with three starting caliber players in Mychal Kendricks, DeMeco Ryans and Kiko Alonso. They also used a third-round pick on Jordan Hicks and have a solid reserve in Brad Jones. So although Goode is a valuable piece, he's on the bubble for now. That will change quickly if Ryans' rehab from an Achilles' tear goes slower than expected or Kendricks ends up traded.

Storm Johnson and Bernard Pierce could battle for one roster spot in training camp.

The Jags are tentatively expected to keep four running backs: T.J. Yeldon, Denard Robinson, Toby Gerhart and one of the two mentioned above. Storm did not seize his opportunity as a rookie last year, gaining just 86 yards on 29 carries while falling far behind Robinson. Pierce, dumped by the RB-needy Ravens this offseason, offers a similarly low ceiling.

A source tells Yahoo that Adrian Peterson still wants to be traded.

Despite not getting moved during the draft, Peterson isn't backing off. He's skipping this week's OTAs, reportedly intends to sit out all of the Vikings' offseason workouts and "has not yet made a decision" about holding out of June mandatory minicamp or training camp. Peterson is apparently still fuming about the way the Vikings failed to support him during last year's child-abuse scandal. Regardless, the team has all the leverage here as he's under contract for $12.75 million. It's hard to see Peterson passing on that money in order to make a statement.

ESPN Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan says it seems "almost 100 percent certain" that Nelson Agholor will start Week 1.

There's plenty that still needs to be sorted out in the Eagles' wideout corps. Will Josh Huff take Riley Cooper's outside role? Will Jordan Matthews move outside more, letting Agholor or Miles Austin come into the slot? Who will be the primary receivers in two-wide sets? But thanks to versatility and need, the one constant will be Agholor, the first-round rookie who is right there with Amari Cooper for fantasy's No. 1 redraft wide receiver.
