Dolphins RB Mike Gillislee is working as a fifth-stringer at OTAs.

He's behind Lamar Miller, Jay Ajayi, Damien Williams, and LaMichael James. A 2013 fifth-round pick, Gillislee has played just nine offensive snaps through two seasons. At this rate, he may be lucky to last until final cuts.

C.J. Anderson reported to Broncos OTAs weighing 221 pounds, down more than 20 from the 2014 offseason.

Anderson shed the weight by "modifying his diet, and running hills and tracks in Colorado and California." Anderson weighed 243 at last year's OTAs. He finished the 2014 season weighing 223, and has now shed two more pounds. Anderson said his summer plan is to "lose even a little more weight," cutting out burgers and ice cream and replacing them with chicken and fish. "Sometimes it tastes like I am eating the same thing everyday," acknowledged Anderson, "but I know what it's going to do for me and the team in the long run."

The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett observes that drops are "still an issue" for Eric Ebron at OTAs.

Take nuggets from offseason workouts with a grain of salt, but this one is noteworthy nonetheless. Ebron only caught 54.3 percent of his targets as a rookie and dropped four of the 29 "catchable" balls that came his way. His 13.79 percent drop rate was sixth-highest among tight ends who played 25 percent of their team's snaps. Ebron's hands were a big question mark coming out of UNC.

Allen Robinson (foot) participated in individual drills at OTAs on Monday.

Robinson ran routes in his first team action since breaking his foot in Week 10. "I haven't had any setbacks," Robinson said of his recovery. "It's been going well." The Jaguars will certainly take it slow with Robinson, who was one of the bigger winners of the offseason after the Jaguars failed to add an outside receiver. He'll man the X spot as a sophomore and be a red-zone weapon.

Joseph Fauria (ankle) won't participate in OTAs.

Fauria has been battling the ankle since September, but opted against surgery. He's expected to be ready for camp, though nothing can be guaranteed with him. After a lackluster season with a new coaching staff, Fauria could be fighting for a roster spot this summer. He's no higher than No. 3 on the depth chart.

Corey Fuller is expected to win the Lions' No. 3 receiver job.

While it sounds like a nice job to win, the Lions' third receiver won't be a reliable fantasy option. Detroit is expected to use the fullback and plenty of two-tight end sets with Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron, leaving Fuller mostly useless outside of extremely deep leagues. He'd do well to see 30 targets.

Broncos signed first-round OLB Shane Ray to a four-year contract.

The 23rd pick in the draft, the Broncos traded up for Ray. He's a high-motor player with a relentlessness to him. Ray figures to be a sub-package rusher in year one behind starters Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware. Ray will very likely enter the starting lineup in 2016. His contract comes with a fifth-year team option.

The Chargers have informed FS Eric Weddle that they will not discuss an upgrade to his contract.

Even after skipping Chargers Organized Team Activities, Weddle's agent says his client won't make a fuss. The sides have agreed to part ways following this season. "He'll be excited about playing this year and then hit free agency," said player rep David Canter. "We're disappointed and will continue to be disappointed. But Eric will go all out this season." Weddle is 30 years old. He'll collect $7.5 million in the final year of his deal.

Redskins signed NT Jerrell Powe, formerly of the Texans.

28-year-old Powe has made four career starts as a well-traveled former sixth-round pick. He'll try to win a backup job behind NT Terrance Knighton.

Jaguars claimed QB Jeff Tuel off waivers from the Bills.

They waived UDFA Jake Waters to make room. The Jaguars hired ex-Bills coach Doug Marrone as their assistant head coach/offensive line, which probably explains the match here. Tuel will compete to be the Jags' No. 3 quarterback.

The Titans are hosting C Scott Wells for a free agent visit.

Wells is 34 years old, incredibly injury plagued, and was Pro Football Focus' No. 41-rated center among 41 qualifiers last season. Maybe he could join Hakeem Nicks, Anthony Fasano, and Shonn Greene in providing "veteran leadership"?

Cardinals signed first-round OT D.J. Humphries to a four-year contract.

He got a $4.74 million signing bonus. The Cardinals are making their rookies earn their stripes during OTA season, working third-rounder David Johnson as the No. 4 tailback and having Humphries behind multiple players at right tackle. This kind of thing doesn't usually last long. Humphries is Arizona's most talented option to bookend LT Jared Veldheer, upgrading on Bobby Massie.

Chargers ILB Donald Butler revealed at OTAs that he underwent "a couple surgeries" in the offseason.

"I'm healthy again," insisted Butler, who is one of the most overpaid defensive players in the league. After the Chargers used a second-round draft pick on Miami (FL) thumper Denzel Perryman, it's fair to wonder if Butler might lose his starting job. The Chargers also have Manti Te'o at inside linebacker.

The Dolphins have mixed in fourth-round OG Jamil Douglas with the first-team offense at OTAs.

He's getting a chance to unseat Dallas Thomas, who isn't good. Despite some of the worst guard play in the NFL last year, the Dolphins ranked second in the league in yards-per-carry average, while Ryan Tannehill set statistical career highs across the board. The Dolphins' guard play is unlikely to get exponentially better in 2015, but it's not an overwhelming fantasy concern.
Jun 1 - 4:20 PM

A.Q. Shipley opened OTAs as the Cardinals' starting center.

A 29-year-old journeyman, Shipley has consistently performed well in past spot starts with the Colts and Ravens, but NFL front offices have never seen him as a legit starter because of his short arms. He's getting that chance in Arizona. The Cards' projected Week 1 line is LT Jared Veldheer, LG Mike Iupati, C Shipley, RT Jonathan Cooper, and RT D.J. Humphries or Bobby Massie.
