SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports a "holdout is still on the table" if the Giants don't make progress in contract talks with Odell Beckham.

Beckham told reporters last week he plans to attend training camp but has since backtracked. The Giants are "basically nowhere" in negotiations with Beckham, having "preliminary conversations but no serious talks." This should be one of the top storylines going into training camp. Beckham can be fined $40K per day if he holds out.

The Texans plan to move CB Kareem Jackson to safety.

This has been expected with Andre Hal sidelined. 30-year-old Jackson lost a step in 2017, grading as one of the worst corners in the league. He should benefit from the move to safety full time. Jackson's presence opposite Tyrann Mathieu likely limits rookie Justin Reid to sub-packages, with Kevin Johnson taking over outside in base sets.

NBC Washington considers Rob Kelley on the roster bubble.

Kelley got some first-team reps this offseason but isn't a roster lock behind Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson, and Samaje Perine. He may not be higher than the No. 4 running back if he makes the team. Washington can save $630K from Kelley's release.

NBC Washington's Rich Tandler expects the Redskins to cut Kevin Hogan.

The Redskins didn't give up much for Hogan, swapping sixth round picks before the draft. Hogan showed nothing in offseason workouts to move ahead of Colt McCoy for backup duties. With Alex Smith one of the most durable starters in the league, Washington should only carry two quarterbacks.

49ers RG Jonathan Cooper is the favorite to start Week 1.

He's ahead of Josh Garnett and Mike Person. Cooper had a rough 2017 in Dallas, but his contract ($2M guaranteed) suggests the 49ers expect him to start. With Weston Richburg and rookie Mike McGlinchey added this offseason, right guard is the only weak spot on the 49ers' offensive line.

Free agent Tre Boston turned down an offer from the Cardinals.

Boston visited Arizona last month, but they were only willing to give him the veteran minimum. There hasn't been any market for safeties this offseason with Boston, Kenny Vaccaro, Mike Mitchell, and Eric Reid all still unsigned. Coming off a career year, 25-year-old Boston should resurface before training camp.

Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com said Marcus Mariota has looked "fast" this offseason.

Mariota has looked noticeably faster since shedding the knee brace he wore for much of last season. The 24-year-old is still adjusting to a new offense under first-year head coach Mike Vrabel but seems to be trending in the right direction. In particular, Wyatt noted that Mariota's throwing technique looked much cleaner during OTAs. The former Heisman Trophy winner is hoping for a bounce-back season after throwing a career-high 15 interceptions in 2017.

Patriots signed first-round OL Isaiah Wynn to a four-year contract.

As with all first-round picks, Wynn's contract includes a fifth-year team option. The 23rd overall pick in April's draft has experience at both guard and tackle but figures to begin his career at left guard. First-round RB Sony Michel remains as New England's only unsigned draft pick.

Darren Urban of azcardinals.com lists Chad Williams as a projected starter.

He had him starting opposite veteran Larry Fitzgerald and ahead of both speedster J.J. Nelson, free agent signing Brice Butler and second-round rookie Christian Kirk. Williams was on the field for just 98 snaps as a rookie but should see more work this year following the offseason departures of John and Jaron Brown. "It just feels like Williams will be able to be the one who makes that step," said Urban. Fitzgerald is penciled in as the Cardinals' WR1, but it's anyone guess how the rest of the pecking order shakes out.

49ers signed OG Laken Tomlinson to a three-year extension through 2021.

Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the deal carries a maximum value of $18 million with $10 million guaranteed. Without a new deal, Tomlinson's contract would have expired after this year. The 26-year-old impressed as a run-blocker last season but struggled in pass protection. He should open 2018 as the Niners' starting left guard.

Colts LB Anthony Walker said he has cleared the concussion protocol.

He tweeted, "All Clear" with a thumbs-up emoji on Friday. Walker suffered the injury at last week's minicamp. The Northwestern alum logged 22 tackles over 115 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2017.

Free agent RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) has been medically cleared to resume football activities.

He announced the news on his Twitter account. The 26-year-old had surgery last month to remove a plate that was inserted in his fractured leg back in 2016. Despite leading the Giants with a career-best 751 rushing yards last year, Darkwa has drawn minimal interest on the open market. He visited the Patriots in April but so far that's been his only nibble.

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman believes Ryan Griffin has a "major opportunity" to pass Ryan Fitzpatrick on the depth chart and start for the Bucs during Jameis Winston's three-game suspension.

Griffin was impressing the coaching staff last summer but sprained his AC joint in his shoulder in the preseason opener, which handed the No. 2 job to Fitzpatrick. He returned late in the season to be Fitzpatrick's backup when Winston was hurt. Griffin, a 2013 UDFA, has never attempted a regular-season pass but spent his first couple years with Sean Payton and Drew Brees in New Orleans. Fitzpatrick is the heavy favorite to start Weeks 1-3, but Griffin will have plenty of opportunities to win over the staff in camp and preseason.

Browns RBs coach Freddie Kitchens said the team will ride the "hot hand" in the backfield this season.

"If they are having success why would you change?" Kitchens said. "All three of those guys -- Carlos Hyde, Duke Johnson, and Nick Chubb -- can run our running game." Tyrod Taylor recently praised Hyde's deceptive ability in the pass game, while Kitchens noted how "violent" Chubb is as a runner, something the offense desires at the position. New OC Todd Haley rode Le'Veon Bell hard in Pittsburgh and would likely prefer one emerges from the pack. Hyde is expected to get the first crack at things, but Chubb is fully expected to challenge him at some point. This is one of the more intriguing position battles to watch this summer.

Lions DE Kerry Hyder (Achilles') was a full participant at OTAs and minicamp.

Hyder tore his Achilles' last preseason and missed all of 2017 after surprising with eight sacks the previous year. The Lions badly need edge-rushing depth and are counting on Hyder to help provide that opposite Ezekiel Ansah. Anthony Zettel led all Lions' ends in snaps last year and recorded 6.5 sacks.
