No. 16 overall pick Taylor Decker took every snap at left tackle during offseason practices open to the media.

It is officially time to call Decker the Lions' left tackle. Riley Reiff will switch to the right side in the final year of his rookie deal, strengthening a position which was a real issue for Detroit last season. The future is slightly more hazy on the interior of the line, with at least two of the three positions in question.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Jets RB Zac Stacy (ankle) is on the roster bubble.

Saying he is on the bubble is actually being kind. If Khiry Robinson (broken leg) is able to come back healthy, there is little chance Stacy sticks on the final 53. Stacy missed the entire offseason program recovering from a broken ankle which landed him on injured reserve last November. He should be ready for training camp.

Free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson was released from jail on a $2,500 bond.

Jackson is accused of pulling a loaded gun on his wife and threating to kill her. He has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Jackson was viewed as Seattle's backup plan at quarterback if UDFA rookie Trevone Boykin could not cement himself in the No. 2 role, but this incident likely ended that discussion.

Browns want third-round DL Carl Nassib to put on 15 pounds.

A defensive end in Penn State's 4-3, Nassib's fit in the Browns' 3-4 scheme was always a question. The extra weight suggests Cleveland wants the rookie to play on the line in base sets and rush from the interior in sub packages. A high-motor player who has overachieved throughout his career, Nassib has the mentality to succeed wherever the Browns ask him to play.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Terry Pluto reports Robert Griffin III has been "coachable" this spring.

Pluto reports Griffin has at times battled impatience about the speed of his development, but he has been willing to work with the coaching staff. That is good considering the lackluster reports about his performance coming out of minicamp and coach Hue Jackson's assertion that Griffin is still "mastering the quarterback position." Griffin has undeniable upside, but his range of outcomes is as wide as any quarterback in the league this season.

Browns want fifth-round WR Rashard Higgins to gain weight.

Higgins is an excellent route runner, but he is rail-thin at 6-foot-1, 198 pounds and lacks the explosive traits to win with athleticism. If he is going to reach his ceiling as a possession receiver, he needs to get stronger. Higgins is likely competing with fellow rookie Jordan Payton and former QB Terrelle Pryor for the No. 3 job.

Speaking to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Johnny Manziel's father said, "My son is a druggie and he needs help."

"Hopefully he doesn't die before he comes to his senses," said Paul Manziel. "I hate to say it but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him." This isn't the first time Manziel's father has publicly pleaded for Johnny to seek help and it probably won't be the last. Earlier this week, Manziel's lawyer Bob Hinton accidentally revealed to the Associated Press that he's seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case. Things just keep getting worse for Johnny Football.

Rams waived LB Matthew Wells.

Receiver J.J. Worton was also cut on Friday. A sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2015, Wells was traded to the Bears during training camp but couldn't survive the last round of cuts. He signed a futures deal with the Rams after joining the practice squad in November. The 25-year-old has yet to play a regular season snap.

Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo said fifth-round RB Jonathan Williams "looked very steady" during OTAs.

Rookies often have a tough time adjusting to the speed of the NFL but Capaccio said Williams never looked "out of place" at OTAs. It might be hard for Williams to carve a role for himself with LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams ahead of him on the depth chart. Head coach Rex Ryan also praised the performances of Mike Gillislee and James Wilder during OTAs. Running back is going to be a position to watch at Bills camp this summer.

WESH Orlando reports free agent Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested for allegedly threatening his wife with a gun.

According to the police report, Jackson was intoxicated when he pulled a loaded gun on his wife and threatened to kill her. Jackson was visiting family in Kissimmee, Florida when the alleged assault took place. Jackson's children were reportedly asleep during the incident. Obviously no team is going to go near Jackson until his legal affairs are in order.

According to the Associated Press, Johnny Manziel's lawyer is seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case.

Defense attorney Bob Hinton also expressed doubts about Manziel's sobriety. "Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle," said Hinton in a text message that was intended for another lawyer but was actually sent to the Associated Press. In the exchange, Hinton also hinted that Manziel may have spent over $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store only 15 hours after being getting into a hit-and-run accident. Manziel's life continues to spiral out of control. At this point, it would be a shock if he ever plays another NFL snap.

Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo believes third-round DL Adolphus Washington might see limited playing time on early downs this season.

GM Doug Whaley committed to Washington as a Week 1 starter earlier this offseason but Capaccio still needs convincing. Capaccio complimented Washington's athleticism but feels he still needs to work on "gap-responsibility and going down the line of scrimmage to make plays." That makes Washington somewhat of a liability in base sets. At least Washington has seen plenty of reps this offseason with Kyle Williams still recovering from offseason knee injury.

Saints signed DT C.J. Wilson.

Kyle Williams was placed on injured reserve in the corresponding roster move. Wilson appeared in 12 games last season, recording 11 tackles and one sack. The 29-year-old spent his first four years in Green Bay after entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2010.

Saints placed CB Kyle Wilson on injured reserve.

The Saints haven't disclosed his injury. Wilson entered the league as a first-round pick in 2010 but hasn't lived up to expectations. He's logged just four interceptions over 95 career games including one in 15 contests last season. The 28-year-old is headed for free agency after this season.

Seahawks.com reporter John Boyle expects Kevin Smith, Kasen Williams and Douglas McNeil to compete for the final wide receiver spot at training camp.

Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson (assuming he's healthy) will all be on the roster, leaving Smith, Williams and McNeil to battle for one or two spots. Smith should enter camp as the favorite. He outsnapped Williams 215 to 39 last season while earning five targets compared to just one for Williams. McNeil never saw the field in 2015 after joining Seattle's practice squad late in the year.
