Kevin Bowen of Colts.com called TE Darrell Daniels a name to watch among the Colts' undrafted rookies.

It was a mild surprise when Daniels went undrafted out of Washington and the Colts don't have much tight end depth behind Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope. The Colts have been among the most accommodating teams to undrafted rookies in recent years, rostering at least one UDFA in 18 straight seasons. Bowen also mentioned UFDAs CB Dante Blackmon and RB Dalton Crossan as candidates to crack the 53-man roster.

Updating an earlier report, ESPN analyst Louis Riddick has not been contacted by the Chiefs.

The news comes from Riddick himself. "The Kansas City Chiefs have not contacted me and there is no interview set up for this week. Source? Me," he tweeted. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier that the Chiefs were looking to interview Riddick for their GM opening, but apparently that isn't the case. The Chiefs are searching for a GM to replace John Dorsey, who was fired last week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chiefs have "reached out" to ESPN analyst Louis Riddick about their GM opening and are hoping to set up an interview next week.

The Chiefs are looking to replace John Dorsey, who was surprisingly let go last week. Riddick interviewed for the 49ers' GM opening a few months ago but lost out to John Lynch. Riddick has some front office experience, working as the Eagles' Director of Pro Personnel for a stretch before landing his current job at ESPN.

Terrelle Pryor will spend part of the summer training with Antonio Brown in Pennsylvania.

He's also planning a trip to Charlotte to work out with Randy Moss. Even before they began training together, Pryor had already sought out Brown via text message, asking him for advice on route-running and certain training techniques. Despite his success with Cleveland last year, Pryor is still relatively new to receiver after beginning his career at quarterback. "The good ones, they ask questions," said Pryor. "Once you stop learning and think you’ve got it, that’s when you lose. I never want to get to that point."

Rob Kelley averaged 3.23 yards per carry over his final six starts in 2016.

That's a noticeable drop-off from Kelley's first three starts when he averaged 4.79 yards per attempt. His late struggles prompted the team to select Samaje Perine in the fourth round of April's draft, though ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim still believes Kelley will get most of the running-back touches early in 2017. Per Keim, Kelley has "looked more comfortable this spring" and has learned from his mistakes last year, including "not trusting his blocking" and "cutting outside too soon." On average, Fat Rob has been going late in the seventh round in early mock drafts.

According to Mike Klis of 9News Denver, Paxton Lynch "made his move" on Trevor Siemian during the final two weeks of OTAs.

Klis noticed a turning point in Lynch over the final two weeks as his "switch was flipped." Specifically, Klis found Lynch to be less tentative, no longer worrying about protections, hot reads and coverages. "He started to get it," said Klis. "He started to play as if he was doing just that—playing." Lynch didn't show much as a rookie but appears to be making great strides as a sophomore. If Lynch continues to progress during training camp, there's a real chance of him wrangling the starting job away from Siemian.

Panthers RT Daryl Williams will spend part of his summer training in Los Angeles with former NFL OL Jackie Slater.

Williams is hoping to improve as a pass protector after struggling in that area last year. With Carolina likely to move on from Michael Oher, Williams should man right tackle with Matt Kalil covering Cam Newton's blind side. His toughest competition at right tackle will come from second-round rookie Taylor Moton.

Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer is taking Greg Olsen's holdout threat seriously.

While Person doesn't "think it will come to that," he conceded that Olsen's desire for a new contract is genuine and not a "media creation." He added that Olsen wants a raise "commensurate with his production" and could make things "uncomfortable" if the Panthers are unwilling to address his needs. This will be a situation to watch as training camp approaches.

Appearing Friday on NFL Access, Chiefs RB Charcandrick West said first-round rookie QB Patrick Mahomes has a "cannon."

"Man, this kid can throw the football," said West. "I mean, I ran I think a slant route and I was like, woah. It was crazy." It's a reminder of why the Chiefs traded up 17 spots to draft Mahomes 10th overall this spring. The son of a former major league pitcher, the gun-slinging Mahomes is essentially Alex Smith's polar opposite. Smith is still expected to start this year but Mahomes appears to be the team's long-term solution at quarterback. The calls for Mahomes will only grow louder if Smith scuffles early on.

Chris Conte and Keith Tandy worked as the Buccaneers' starting safeties during minicamp and OTAs.

The safety competition should heat up once offseason signing J.J. Wilcox and rookie Justin Evans return to full health. Both were sidelined with injuries during OTAs. Wilcox is the team's highest-paid safety and Evans has second-round pedigree, but both will need big showings in camp to unseat the veteran Conte and Tandy, who graded out as PFF's top safety over the final five weeks of 2016.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins don't know when SLB Koa Misi (neck) will be cleared.

Misi sat out OTAs recovering from spinal fusion surgery. He's not fully over his neck issues and won't be reevaluated until training camp. The Dolphins are optimistic on Misi's status, but he isn't a lock to play this season.

The Dallas Morning News considers KR Lucky Whitehead’s roster spot in danger.

Whitehead averaged only 23.2 yards on kickoffs and 7.8 on punts last year. He doesn’t contribute as a receiver, making him an easy cut if rookie Ryan Switzer wins the return job. None of Whitehead’s $615K salary is guaranteed.

CSN MidAtlantic believes Brian Quick needs a strong training camp to make the final roster.

It falls in line with previous reports. Quick struggled at OTAs and is behind Ryan Grant for the No. 5 receiver job. He’s on the outside looking in for a spot.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Marvin Jones had a strong offseason.

"He's really had a good spring. This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start he had last year," said Caldwell. Jones worked with Randy Moss this offseason to improve his route running. There’s some breakout appeal to Jones with Anquan Boldin gone, but rookie Kenny Golladay and a healthy Eric Ebron are going to cut into his 2017 targets.

Saints third round RB Alvin Kamara saw reps at receiver during OTAs.

Kamara split time between running backs and wideouts. It confirms the Saints plan of using him in a pass-catching role. Coach Sean Payton says Kamara has been a "quick study."
