Clemson OT Isaiah Battle measured 6-foot-6, 312 with 35 3/8-inch arms at his Pro Day on Tuesday.

He ran 5.22 in the forty. The measurables are ideal for an NFL tackle, and far more impressive than Battle's lanky 6-foot-7, 290 listing on the Clemson website. Battle's pro readiness is in doubt, but he certainly looks the part.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports 26 teams attended Clemson LT Isaiah Battle's Pro Day on Tuesday.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins were one of them, though it would obviously be easier to report the teams that didn't attend. Battle is viewed as having day-two upside, but he also has a history of off-the-field issues. He should be the first player taken in the Supplemental Draft since 2012, but it may not be until Rounds 4-7.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Giants officials have been in South Florida since Monday evening, but yet to be allowed to visit Jason Pierre-Paul (hand).

Per Schefter, the G-Men are "waiting patiently," and "hoping he's okay." The fact that JPP's employers have yet to be allowed into his hospital room is an obvious indication his injury is serious. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, however, he could still begin the year in the G-Men's lineup, avoiding the PUP list. Pierre-Paul's status will continue to be updated throughout the week.

Victor Cruz (patellar tear) believes he'll be ready for the start of training camp.

"From the training staff, the coaches and the front office people, I think everyone’s under the assumption that I’ll be ready to go," Cruz said on Sirius XM NFL Radio. "I don’t think PUP will be an option." Cruz's comments echo those made by coach Tom Coughlin last month. Although we'd still consider the PUP list a real possibility for Cruz to begin camp, it's beginning to appear more and more likely that he'll be ready for Week 1.

"Sources close" to Cowboys DE Greg Hardy tell Bleacher Report's Jason Cole that he's "losing some of his will to fight" his 10-game suspension.

Hardy is apparently worn down by a saga that's lasted over a year. Per Cole, Hardy might opt to abandon any further legal action if his ban is slashed by 2-4 games. It's already been over a month since Hardy's appeal hearing. SI's Peter King guessed in early June that Hardy would indeed get 2-4 games lopped off his suspension.

Donovan McNabb faces a minimum of 90 days in jail for his second drunk-driving arrest.

McNabb could spend a maximum of six months behind bars, though that sentence could get longer based on extenuating circumstances. Of course, it's also possible McNabb pleas down his charges. McNabb spent one day in jail for his 2014 DUI arrest.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) is "likely" to begin the year on the NFI list, costing him the first six games.

Per Cole, the Giants believe Pierre-Paul "dodged a bullet" by only suffering "flesh injuries," but he's required skin grafts for his hand. The G-Men apparently have no idea how long it might take JPP to get back to 100 percent. While it's concerning that Pierre-Paul remains in the hospital, there's really no way of knowing his Week 1 status at this point. It's a bizarre situation for the Giants and their $14.8 million franchise player.

Ex-Eagles QB Donovan McNabb was arrested for drunk driving in late June.

It's McNabb's second such arrest in 18 months. McNabb was previously popped in January 2014, and agreed to spend one day in jail as part of a plea agreement. He might not get off so lightly this time. Going on 39, McNabb's last NFL snap came in 2011 as a member of the Vikings. His post-career exploits haven't done his reputation any favors.

Coach Sean Payton said he thinks Nick Toon's snaps will go "way up" this season.

Toon appeared in just eight games last season, averaging 30.1 snaps per day in those. Now Kenny Stills, Jimmy Graham and Robert Meachem are all gone and Toon is penciled in as the primary "Z," a role that will get him on the field in all three-wide sets alongside focal point Brandin Cooks and slot man Marques Colston. Toon has the tools to excel with this opportunity, making Kenny Stills' 32-641-5 line from 2013 a real possibility.

Jeff Janis said the game is "really starting to slow down" for him.

Linked below is the latest in a long string of offseason hype pieces regarding Janis. He impressed while subbing for Jordy Nelson (hip surgery) during the spring, soaking up valuable first-team reps with Aaron Rodgers. Janis, the prototypical size/speed prospect, will enter camp with his nose in front for the No. 4 wideout job.

Packers DE Datone Jones' one-game suspension is related to a marijuana offense.

Just a couple hours after the Packers returned from their NFC Championship Game loss at Seattle, Jones was ticketed for marijuana possession. He was issued a citation, was convicted Feb. 10 and paid a $880 fine.

Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) remained hospitalized as of Tuesday morning.

It's now been roughly 60 hours since Pierre-Paul's fireworks accident. The fact he remains in a Miami hospital speaks to the severity of the injury. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Giants officials are in South Florida today to visit JPP and see how he is faring.

NJ.com says Josh Huff was "very impressive" through OTAs and minicamp.

This is the most positive take we've heard on Huff's offseason, as some Eagles beat writers were disappointed in his performance. In the end, Huff will have to step up with the pads on in August if he is going to beat out blocker Riley Cooper for the No. 3 wideout job behind Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. In a worst-case scenario, Huff will end up as a sub-package receiver and return man.

Broncos TE Virgil Green attended Peyton Manning's Duke workouts this offseason.

Players that are merely ticketed to block don't go catch passes from Manning at his annual camp. Green, a versatile and uniquely athletic specimen, is trying to be part of the committee that replaces Julius Thomas' production in a TE-friendly Gary Kubiak scheme. His progress in camp will be worth watching as he battles Owen Daniels and H-back James Casey for looks from Peyton. We know Virgil will be on the field a ton thanks to his blocking ability.

Lemuel Jeanpierre and Drew Nowak are battling for the Seahawks' starting center job.

When the Seahawks gave up Pro Bowl center Max Unger in the Jimmy Graham deal, an already shaky offensive line got significantly worse. Jeanpierre is a 28-year-old career backup and Nowak is a former UDFA who spent 2014 on the practice squad. Russell Wilson faced pressure on a league-high 46.0 percent of his dropbacks last season, per PFF. It's no coincidence he also went nuts on the ground for 849 yards and six touchdowns via 118 rushes.
