The Cowboys are allowing OG Ronald Leary to pursue a trade, but won't deal him for "little or nothing."
Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee surgery, hip surgery, sports-hernia surgery) has yet to resume practicing.
It's apparently the sports-hernia operation that's primarily keeping Lewis sidelined. Lewis' 2015 was an injury-ruined disaster, while he wasn't effective in a 16-game 2014. If healthy, Lewis will be a candidate to start opposite Delvin Breaux, but the Saints could opt to go with 2015 third-rounder P.J. Williams.
The Saints have concerted DT Kaleb Eulls to guard.
A 2015 undrafted free agent, Eulls stuck on the roster all season, but was active for only four games. The Saints are scrounging for depth on the interior, but transitions like these rarely pay off.
Saints second-round WR Michael Thomas has seen a "slew" of snaps with the first-team offense during OTAs.
With Brandin Cooks battling a minor injury, Thomas is getting run opposite Willie Snead. It's not surprising, but notable because it's an indication the Saints won't be bashful about progressing Thomas past Brandon Coleman on the depth chart. There won't be artificial hoops to jump through. Thomas could have WR4 appeal in a potentially high-volume role this season.
According to WEEI, Martellus Bennett is "gaining early entry into Tom Brady's circle of trust."
Bennett has spent part of OTAs working off to the side with Brady and a small group of other passing-game personnel. Of course, reporter Christopher Price notes Scott Chandler did something similar last year before going on to bomb during the regular season. Bennett is coming off a head case year where the Bears had "pervasive doubts" about his commitment, but he seems to understand the stakes are higher in New England this year.
Texans signed third-round WR Braxton Miller to a four-year, $3.114 million contract.
A former star quarterback, Miller is an elite athlete, but has precious little experience at his NFL position. He could eventually represent a big-play threat out of the slot, but might be a frequent healthy scratch as a rookie as he learns the finer points of receiving.
Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall is recovering from surgery to his right index finger.
Marshall has been limited in OTAs, but it shouldn't be an issue for much longer. A 2012 fifth-rounder who was cut by the Jaguars, Marshall has emerged as one of the league's best inside linebackers. Headed into his age-27 season, Marshall will be an unrestricted free agent next spring.
Redskins WR Michael Campanaro has been sidelined with a calf injury.
Campanaro has been on the shelf for a "couple of weeks." Coach John Harbaugh said "there will be a time when he gets past this." A 2014 seventh-rounder, Campanaro has been extremely injury prone, appearing in just eight games because of back and thigh injuries. He'll probably be on the outside looking in of Baltimore's crowded receiver corps.
