NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Browns have talked with three teams picking in the top eight about a trade up from No. 12.
Likely to select Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, the Browns might have to move up from No. 12 for their latest "quarterback solution." The Browns have been linked to UNC's Mitchell Trubisky for months, but his stock is unclear. He could go anywhere from No. 2 to No. 12. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported as recently as three days ago that the Browns were still seriously considering Trubisky at No. 1, but it's ultimately unlikely.
Titans OLB Kevin Dodd (foot) still isn't 100 percent healthy.
Speaking Tuesday, GM Jon Robinson deemed Dodd's injury "delicate." The 2016 second-rounder is still dealing with pain. It's bad news after Dodd's rookie year was wrecked by foot issues. Dodd had a "preventative" — i.e. necessary — operation last May before struggling through foot problems basically all seasons. He played 179 ineffective snaps before landing on injured reserve. Dodd should be considered questionable for training camp.
Teddy Bridgewater (knee) remains without a timetable for a return.
GM Rick Spielman did say that Bridgewater had a "great" first week of offseason practice. Bridgewater is eight months removed from blowing up his knee in a training camp practice. Every indication is that Sam Bradford will remain the Vikings' starter for 2017.
Stefon Diggs blames his 2016 durability woes on himself.
Slowed by groin, knee and hip issues, Diggs missed three games, and was limited for others. Diggs said he's "taking steps" to avoid a repeat in 2017. Reading between the lines, Diggs clearly believes he wasn't in good enough shape. Proper conditioning is a lesson young NFLers often learn the hard way. The playmaker will begin 2017 in the WR2/3 mix.
Contract-year QB Sam Bradford has yet to have extension talks with the Vikings.
Bradford is due $17 million between salary and bonuses in what will be his age-30 season. Bradford stayed healthy last year, setting some fraudulent records in the process, but didn't elevate his offense. He's not the long-term answer in Minnesota anymore than he was in Philadelphia or St. Louis.
Titans exercised LT Taylor Lewan's fifth-year team option for 2018.
The move was a formality, as Lewan has emerged as one of the league's best young left tackles. The sides will surely talk about a long-term extension this summer. Locking Lewan up now would free 2018 up for Marcus Mariota long-term talks.
The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins would be happy with either Tennessee DE Derek Barnett or Missouri DE Charles Harris at No. 22 overall.
Reporter Armando Salguero insisted last month the Dolphins would target a defensive end. Both Barnett and Harris could be gone by the time the Dolphins are on the clock. Harris has a better chance of falling, but that's because there are questions about his ability to set the edge in run defense. Harris tallied nine sacks as a senior.
Ohio State CB Gareon Conley has been accused of rape by a Cleveland woman, but adamantly denies the allegations.
Conley's agent has called the claims "ludicrous and ridiculous," and says they were made out of spite. Taken to a local hospital following the alleged incident, the woman refused to speak with police. No charges have been filed, and Conley has yet to speak with police. Conley has been considered a sure-fire first-rounder, and perhaps even a top-10 pick. With so little time between now and Thursday, the incident will affect Conley's draft stock, regardless of whether or not it's true.
