Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) has resumed throwing.

It's another sign of progress for Kaepernick, who resumed weight training about a week ago. He's expected to gain full clearance by the end of the month. Kaepernick has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason but those have mostly died down now that Denver has replaced Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler with first-round pick Paxton Lynch.

Free agent CB Leon Hall will visit the Falcons.

Hall visited the Giants on Tuesday but left without a contract. Atlanta added Florida safety Keanu Neal in the draft but weren't able to bring in a cornerback to back up Robert Alford and Desmond Trufant. Hall's market was slow to develop after undergoing offseason back surgery but now that minicamp and OTAs are starting up, he should find a new team in relatively short order.

Now that LT Cordy Glenn has agreed to a five-year contract, the Bills are expected to pursue long-term deals with Tyrod Taylor and CB Stephon Gilmore.

GM Doug Whaley said he's "supremely confident there's a chance" the Bills will be able to retain both Taylor and Gilmore. That's about as noncommittal as you can get. Locking Taylor and Gilmore into long-term deals is easier said than done and would probably require some serious cap maneuvering on Buffalo's part. Taylor's $1 million salary this year makes him arguably the league's biggest bargain. If Sam Bradford can command upwards of $20 million annually, there's nothing stopping Taylor from pursuing a similar amount. The Bills added some insurance in the draft by taking Ohio State QB Cardale Jones in the fourth round.

Chiefs released DB Jimmy Wilson.

Well, that was fast. Wilson signed with Kansas City in April but didn't even make it to OTAs. It's the second time he's been released in the last five months. Wilson has the versatility to play either safety or slot corner. Someone will take a training camp flier on the 29-year-old.

Redskins second-round pick Su'a Cravens dropped to 215 pounds leading up to the draft because teams were viewing him as a strong safety.

His Combine weigh-in was 226. The 20-year-old has versatility to play both strong safety and dime linebacker and will probably see time at both positions in Washington. Cravens played as heavy as 235 pounds at USC.

Colts DE Earl Okine has been working at outside linebacker this offseason.

He only played five games as a rookie while spending time on the practice squad. At 6'6/290, dropping back in coverage could be an issue for Okine, though he's worked hard to improve his footwork. An undrafted journeyman out of the University of Florida, Okine will enter training camp on the roster bubble.

Texans LT Duane Brown successfully appealed a 10-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy by proving his positive test was triggered by tainted Mexican meat.

It's why the NFLPA warned players on Tuesday that excessive meat consumption in Mexico and China could trigger a positive test. The Raiders and Texans are set to play in Mexico City on Nov. 21. Brown's ban was set for 10 games instead of four because he previously failed a test in 2010.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells reports fourth-round ILB Antonio Morrison ran his 5.1 40-yard dash at Florida's Pro Day "four days after having a catheter taken out of his chest."

Morrison was recovering from a staph infection that sidelined him at the Combine. Per Wells, doctors "urged" Morrison not to run at the Pro Day. Colts coach Chuck Pagano wasn't deterred by the slow time, and instead came away impressed with Morrison's toughness. "The guy is a great competitor," Pagano said. "You just put the tape on, and after a couple plays, it’s like, wow." Morrison will compete with Sio Moore, Nate Irving and Josh McNary for time at inside 'backer.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim fully expects contract-year WR Pierre Garcon to keep his roster spot.

Garcon's status became the subject of speculation after the Redskins used the No. 22 pick on Josh Doctson, but Keim is convinced Garcon will stay in D.C. Per Keim, Redskins officials have never once wavered on Garcon's roster spot, either publicly or privately. With the Redskins' offseason spending largely finished, they don't need the $8 million in cap savings they'd get by cutting Garcon loose.

Bills signed franchise player LT Cordy Glenn to a five-year, $65 million contract.

The deal includes $36 million guaranteed, $26.5 million of which is "fully" guaranteed. That's the second most in history for a left tackle. The No. 41 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Glenn has manned the blindside since his rookie year, and developed into one of the league's better left tackles. Headed into his age-27 season, Glenn hasn't missed a game since 2012. Locking Glenn up now allows the Bills to focus on long-term deals for Stephon Gilmore and Tyrod Taylor.

Texans G/T David Quessenberry hopes to resume his career in 2016 after missing the past two seasons as he underwent cancer treatments.

"I'm very happy about how everything is going," Quessenberry said. "I feel great." Quessenberry did add he still might need to add some weight. The No. 176 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Quessenberry missed his entire rookie year with a foot injury, and has never played an NFL down. He turns 26 in August.
May 3 - 6:17 PM

Sam Bradford's agent, Tom Condon, believes a competition with No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz would be stacked against Bradford.

"I know people say, ‘Well, why doesn’t he just compete and win the job?'" Condon said. "There is no real competition. If you’ve given up the draft choices (to trade up) and he’s the second pick in the draft, he’s playing. That’s all there is to it." Condon has a point, but Wentz is also a unique prospect in that he's coming from the FCS. The reality is, Bradford doesn't have any good trade partners. At this point, he'd probably be best off taking his money, being quiet and competing with Wentz in the preseason.

Tom Brady has until May 23 to appeal the latest ruling in the Deflategate case.

Neat. Brady has numerous options, including appealing all the way to the Supreme Court (seriously). That's extremely unlikely, but Brady has made it clear he will keep fighting to have his four-game ban thrown out for the second consecutive year. What should have been a 24-hour story is going on a 17-month saga.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan insists the team could keep four quarterbacks for 2016.

In other words, the door remains wide open for Ryan Fitzpatrick's re-signing. "If it’s in the best interest of the team at the end of training camp that we carry four quarterbacks, then we carry four quarterbacks," Maccagnan said. "To me, it’s a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow, and develop players." If Fitz returns, he'd be joining Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg. In reality, the odds are extremely slim Gang Green would keep four signal callers. Smith would likely be traded, or Petty sold for a song.
May 3 - 4:49 PM

Saints signed LT Terron Armstead to a five-year extension through 2021.

The 2013 third-rounder was owed $705,000 in the final year of his rookie contract. Locking up Armstead became an offseason priority for the Saints after he emerged as one of the league's best tackles last season. Still only 25 (in July), Armstead graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 overall tackle in 2015. He should land in the neighborhood of $25-$30 million guaranteed.
