NBC Washington’s Rich Tandler expects Samaje Perine to open 2018 as the Redskins’ starter.

Perine failed to impress as a rookie, averaging 3.4 YPC with just two touchdowns in eight starts. An injured offensive line was part of the problem, and the Redskins history of not investing at running back makes Perine the favorite for early-down work. Perine’s limited pass game role and the presence of Rob Kelley are concerns to his outlook, but there’s some scoring potential if he returns as Washington’s red-zone back.

Jaguars signed QB Blake Bortles to a new three-year, $54 million contract that includes $26.5 million guaranteed.

This comes after reports the Jaguars were exploring options to replace Bortles. The extension locks Bortles up through 2020, but Jacksonville will likely be able to escape the contract with relative ease as soon as 2019. Bortles' new deal is on the team-friendly side, placing him behind Ryan Tannehill in annual average. The Jaguars have a rising receiver tandem in Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, and are expected to franchise impending free agent Allen Robinson, so Bortles should have an improved supporting cast going into 2018. The extension takes the Jags out of the hunt for Kirk Cousins, although they may still consider early-round quarterbacks in the draft.

NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco expects the 49ers to extend free agent DL Tank Carradine.

With Carlos Hyde and Eric Reid likely to test free agency, Carradine and Brock Coyle are the 49ers' top candidates for new deals. Carradine had a slow start to his career, but graded out positively over eight games (214 snaps) last year and can play multiple spots. An early-down run stopper, Carradine shouldn’t be a difficult re-sign.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports free agent Sam Bradford plans to play this season.

This is expected but wasn't a lock after Bradford's knee limited him to two games last year. Bradford was healthy enough to back up Case Keenum in the playoffs and looks to be on track for a normal offseason. Bradford’s injury history has potential to impact his guaranteed money in free agency, but he’s not going to struggle to land a starting role.

The Dolphins could restructure Ryan Tannehill’s contract.

Tannehill has a $19.8 million cap hit, with $5.5 million of his salary guaranteed on the fifth day of the new league year. The Dolphins can save $17.5 million from cutting him and may ask Tannehill for a pay cut coming off knee surgery. Reshad Jones, Kenny Stills, Kiko Alonso and Andre Branch are also candidates to restructure.

Chargers OL Forrest Lamp (knee) is the leading candidate to start at right guard.

Lamp was in line to start as a rookie before missing the entire year with a torn ACL. The Chargers expect him to be ready for training camp and are counting on him at one of their guard spots. With Matt Slauson a free agent, Dan Feeney could start opposite Lamp.

The Colts want to re-sign free agent CB Rashaan Melvin.

Melvin set career highs in 2017, leading the Colts in interceptions and allowing a 60.3 passer rating in coverage before getting shut down in December. After moving on from Vontae Davis, bringing back Melvin is a priority for the Colts. Melvin recently signed with the Rosenhaus Group and could push for top-20 corner money.

Torrey Smith said he's "expecting to be back" with the Eagles in 2018.

The Eagles can create $5M in cap space by releasing Smith. Smith's thoughts don't match up with a recent report that the Eagles are likely to release him. His biggest impact came in the postseason, recording 13 receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown. With the emergence of Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins in 2017, It seems unlikely the Eagles bring Smith back.
