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, but could be in the mix for backup duties with a strong camp. It's perhaps telling that 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 NJ.com'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.

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.
Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Coach Dan Quinn called free agent Matt Schaub "certainly somebody" the Falcons could sign.

Cut by the Raiders two weeks ago, Schaub is a backup only. He was drafted by the Falcons and played for new OC Kyle Shanahan with the Texans. Schaub may not be much of an upgrade on current No. 2 T.J. Yates or Sean Renfree.

Coach Ron Rivera said the Panthers are "very excited" to see Stephen Hill in OTAs and minicamp.

"With his size (6-4, 215) and speed and his ability to get vertical, if he can assimilate to what we do," Rivera continued. "He might be a guy that has an opportunity to contribute for us." Hill spent all of last season on Carolina's practice squad. He'll have a good chance to make the team this summer.

Vikings signed OT Babatunde Aiyegbusi.

Aiyegbusi, 27, stands a towering 6'9/351 and hails from Poland. The former basketball player has been playing organized football for just five years. Aiyegbusi's agent had never even heard of him until two weeks ago.
Mar 27 - 10:26 AM

Vikings signed LB Casey Matthews, formerly of the Eagles.

Clay's far less talented younger brother was forced to play 440 defensive snaps for the Eagles last season after DeMeco Ryans went down with a blown Achilles'. Matthews will compete for a job on a light Vikings linebacker depth chart.
Mar 27 - 10:21 AM

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes the chances are "very good" that the Cowboys release CB Brandon Carr if he refuses a pay cut.

Carr is due an $8 million salary and scheduled to count $12.7 million against the cap in the third year of a five-year, $50.1 million contract. The Cowboys can clear $8 million in cap space this season by making him a post-June 1 cut.
