Browns C Alex Mack (broken fibula) will participate in the team's offseason program.

Mack is five months removed from leg surgery. He's expected to be limited during spring workouts. One of the best centers in the league, Cleveland averaged just 91 rush yards per game after Mack went down. Mack is signed through 2018, but can void his final three years after this season.

The Cardinals plan to get Logan Thomas "a ton of reps" this offseason.

"He's going to get a ton of work," Bruce Arians said. "We drafted him for two years from now, not November." The Cardinals need to find out what they have in Thomas, who should open the season behind injury-prone QBs Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton. He struggled on limited snaps in 2014, and was passed over for Ryan Lindley in two late-season starts. Thomas won't prevent the Cardinals from drafting a long-term answer at quarterback.

Free agent LB Larry Foote recently underwent knee surgery.

Foote had a minor clean-up procedure on his knee. It shouldn't impact his status for training camp if he decides to return. Foote is currently a defensive assistant with the Cardinals, but hasn't ruled out playing this season.

Coach John Fox confirmed Jay Cutler will open OTAs as the Bears' starter.

"I would say logically if you are looking at the depth chart and asking me two weeks before we can get anything going, I'd say [Cutler would be] first on the depth chart," Fox said. The Bears' starting job is Cutler's to lose, and he faces little in the way of competition. Jimmy Clausen projects as Cutler's backup.

Free agent NT Letroy Guion visited with Seattle on Friday.

The Seahawks are Guion's first known visit. Guion should start to draw interest from teams now that his off-field situation is resolved. The Packers have also been in talks with Guion and remain his most likely landing spot.

Kellen Moore will compete for the Lions' backup quarterback job.

Moore will be given an opportunity to unseat Dan Orlovsky after spending last year as the No. 3 quarterback. He was non-tendered this offseason for cap purposes and could be in the mix for backup duties with a strong camp. It's perhaps telling the Lions gave Moore more guaranteed money than Orlovsky, who re-signed on a one-year deal. Moore has yet to appear in an NFL game.

The Redskins haven't ruled out re-signing free agent WR Santana Moss.

Moss was limited to 10 games last season, playing just 133 snaps. He hasn't drawn any known interest on the open market. Moss could have to wait until after the draft to sign with a team.

49ers waived CB Cameron Fuller.

An undrafted free agent, Fuller was signed to the 49ers' practice squad in December. He was active for one game, but didn't see the field. 24-year-old Fuller could resurface as offseason depth.

Panthers claimed OT Jonathan Martin off waivers from the 49ers.

The 42nd overall pick in the 2012 draft, Martin's name has long been bigger than his game. He's struggled mightily in stints with the Dolphins and 49ers, and generated negative publicity for "outing" Richie Incognito as a "bully" during the 2013 BullyGate Scandal in Miami. The Panthers are searching at tackle, claiming Martin and signing Michael Oher to a cheap two-year deal. They'll continue to add talent in the draft.

Panthers signed WR Jarrett Boykin to a one-year contract.

Boykin, 25, lost the third receiver role to Davante Adams in Green Bay last season after posting a 49-681-3 receiving line in 2013. Boykin stands 6-foot-2, 217 with 4.74 speed, so he's essentially a younger version of Jerricho Cotchery at this point. Boykin is viable offseason depth, but Carolina needs to keep searching for a No. 2 wideout upgrade opposite Kelvin Benjamin.

A Giants assistant coach told's Jordan Raanan that Marcus Harris was the team's "best receiver" in 2014 training camp and preseason.

Keep in mind Odell Beckham was out with a hamstring injury at this time, but Raanan has been beating Harris' drum for awhile. The Giants were reportedly considering starting Harris before he suffered a year-ending shoulder injury late last August. Undrafted out of Murray State in 2011, Harris stands 6-foot-1, 189 with an underwhelming 33-inch vertical. He does have solid agility scores, which suggests Harris could excel in the slot.

Bears signed CB Alan Ball, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year contract.

The National Football Post jumped the gun last week when it reported Ball signed with the Panthers. They offered him a deal, but Ball took Chicago's. Ball started 22 games for the Jaguars the previous two seasons, but had his 2014 campaign cut short with a bicep injury. He provides much-needed depth for the Bears behind starters Tim Jennings and Kyle Fuller. It's still a position of need.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports the Bills had interest in trading for Saints RG Jahri Evans.

Buffalo is looking for a bookend to Richie Incognito after Chris Williams was a 2014 free-agent flop. Williams is a questionable fit in OC Greg Roman's power scheme and would save the Bills $2.5 million as a post-June cut. The Saints were shopping both Evans and LG Ben Grubbs before dealing Grubbs to the Chiefs.
Mar 27 - 11:51 AM

Titans re-signed CB Brandon Harris to a one-year contract.

Harris, the 60th pick in the 2011 draft by the Texans, appeared in 11 games for the Titans last season, playing 112 defensive snaps as a part-time slot corner. He'll compete for one of the final roster spots in training camp this summer.
Mar 27 - 11:47 AM

Bills GM Doug Whaley expressed a desire to re-sign free agent ILB Brandon Spikes.

Per Whaley, his two remaining tasks in free agency are re-signing Spikes and adding a vet receiver. Spikes has drawn zero known interest on the open market and could likely be had on the cheap. He's a pure two-down thumper.
