Miami (FL) WR Phillip Dorsett clocked forty times of 4.25 and 4.27 at the Hurricanes' Pro Day.

Seeing as Dorsett ran 4.33 on the Combine's "slow track," we already knew he was fast. Dorsett has drawn some T.Y. Hilton comparisons for his versatility, but also possess the ability to outrun coverage a la DeSean Jackson. He's only 5-foot-9, 185, a deficiency that figures to keep Dorsett out of day one.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said Wednesday that he is "praying" for Dennis Pitta to return from his second hip dislocation.

The notion that the Ravens have resorted to "praying" for Pitta probably isn't a great sign. Bisciotti heaped some praise on super sleeper Crockett Gillmore on Wednesday, and said he anticipates the Ravens using a third- or fourth-round pick at tight end. They are also flirting with Rob Housler.

Vikings signed QB Mike Kafka.

Kafka, 27, spent last season behind Josh McCown and Mike Glennon in Tampa. He should compete with Pat Devlin to be the Vikings' third-string quarterback. Kafka hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011. He recently worked out at the NFL's Veteran Combine, where Kafka and Tyler Wilson were reportedly the most impressive quarterbacks in attendance.

Owner Steve Bisciotti said the Ravens want to extend RCB Jimmy Smith.

Smith is making $6.89 million in the final year of his rookie deal. He graded out as a top-20 corner by Pro Football Focus last season before missing the final eight games to Lisfranc surgery. Contract-year RG Marshal Yanda and Justin Tucker are also candidates for extensions.

WKBW's Joe Buscaglia considers Marquise Goodwin's roster spot in jeopardy.

A situational deep threat, Goodwin has struggled with injuries and was benched in favor of Chris Hogan last year. With the Bills signing Percy Harvin, Goodwin will be competing for one of Buffalo's final receiver spots. 24-year-old Goodwin is entering a make-or-break year in 2015.
Apr 1 - 6:33 PM

Seahawks re-signed DT Jesse Williams.

Williams, 24, didn't generate any free-agent interest after getting waived last month. He's spent the last two years on Seattle's I.R. list with knee injuries. Williams will compete for a depth role on the interior line if healthy.
Apr 1 - 6:01 PM

Free agent C Stefen Wisniewski visited the Jaguars Wednesday.

Wisniewski also visited with New England this week. In Jacksonville, he would be an upgrade over second-year C Luke Bowanko, who was one of the worst pass blockers in the league last season. Wisniewski is seeking $4M annually.
Apr 1 - 5:40 PM

Jets re-signed OL Ben Ijalana.

Ijalana was limited to three games (six snaps) with the Jets last year. A 2011 second-round pick, Ijalana's career has been derailed by injuries. Ijalana will compete with Corey Hilliard for swing tackle duties.
Apr 1 - 5:38 PM

Jets signed LB Jamari Lattimore, formerly of the Packers.

Lattimore, 26, will give the Jets much-needed depth at inside linebacker and has good special teams value. He played 285 defensive snaps with Green Bay last year, making five starts. Lattimore projects as the top backup behind David Harris and Demario Davis.
Apr 1 - 5:15 PM

Free agent S Dwight Lowery visited with the Colts.

The Colts are expected to add a veteran safety opposite Mike Adams with Lowery, Stevie Brown, and Bernard Pollard the top free agents remaining. Lowery started 15 games for Atlanta last season, but struggled in coverage. He should be available for the veteran minimum.
Apr 1 - 5:05 PM

Free agent C Stefen Wisniewski visited with the Patriots this week.

Recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, Wisniewski has met with multiple teams but remains on the open market. He could have to settle for less than the $4M annually he's reportedly seeking. With Bryan Stork entrenched at center, Wisniewski would likely move to guard in New England. The Bucs, Seattle, and the Bears have also been linked to Wisniewski.
Apr 1 - 4:51 PM

Bears re-signed CB Sherrick McManis to a one-year contract.

McManis, 27, will return as a core special teamer. He was limited to 46 defensive snaps last year, and projects for similar usage under new coach John Fox.
Apr 1 - 4:35 PM

Free agent TE Rob Housler will visit the Bengals Thursday.

The Bengals and Ravens are in talks with Housler, who is expected to sign with a team by the end of the week. Housler would be a No. 2 tight end in Cincinnati behind Tyler Eifert. The Browns and Falcons also remain in the mix.
Apr 1 - 4:19 PM

Texans signed WR Nate Washington, formerly of the Titans.

Washington, 32 in August, posted a 40-647-2 line for the Titans last season, operating as the No. 2/3 receiver. The Texans' depth chart is unsettled behind unquestioned No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins, with Cecil Shorts the early favorite for No. 2 duties, but it's a position Houston will likely address in the draft. If he makes the team, Washington should fill a situational deep threat role.
Apr 1 - 4:00 PM

Seahawks re-signed FB/DT Will Tukuafu.

Tukuafu played 218 snaps as a deep reserve two-way player for the Seahawks last season. He'll compete for a job in training camp this summer.
