Saints waived S Marcus Ball and LB Kyle Knox.
The Redskins gave Duke T/G Takoby Cofield this year's highest signing bonus for an undrafted free agent, valued at $25,000.
As is the case with all UDFAs, Cofield signs a three-year deal, and will be eligible for restricted free agency in 2018. Cofield was a 42-game starter for the Blue Devils. He has long arms and big hands. Although he was a left tackle in college, Cofield (6'4/310) best projects to left guard in the NFL.
ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett believes receivers Nick Toon, Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman should be "on your radar screen."
Amazingly, the Saints didn't draft a receiver after trading away Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills, leaving Toon as the de facto No. 3. Jones and Coleman are 2014 undrafted free agents who spent the year on the practice squad before late season cups of coffee. Triplett believes they will be legitimate competitors for New Orleans' Nos. 4 and 5 jobs.
ESPN Cleveland expects Josh McCown to be the Browns' Week 1 starter.
As do we, though the Browns' quarterback situation has clarified following the draft. With no signal callers taken, the Browns have set up a direct McCown/Johnny Manziel showdown. The Browns made no secret of their desperation to move on from Johnny Football this offseason, but it's well within the realm of possibility he makes starts in 2015. McCown is not a viable starting quarterback.
Falcons signed FB Collin Mooney.
Mooney last appeared in a regular-season game in 2013, where he tore his hamstring. He'll be lucky to survive first cuts in Atlanta.
ESPN Cleveland believes seventh-round DB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (ACL surgery) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP list "for certain."
Ekpre-Olomu had first-round upside until tearing his ACL in December. That's also when he underwent surgery. A stint on the reserve/PUP list could easily turn into a trip to injured reserve for a rookie who misses the entire offseason and preseason.
49ers FB Bruce Miller's spousal abuse charges have been lowered to misdemeanor vandalism.
Miller was accused of pushing his girlfriend out of a parked car and smashing her phone, but police found no evidence that his girlfriend was pushed. She denied there was any physical contact. It's unclear if Miller will face league discipline under the reduced charges. Miller has been sitting out OTAs as he awaits his fate. CSN Bay Area reports that will remain the case until he is sentenced.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports free agent RT Joseph Barksdale "remains interested" in re-signing with the Rams.
Languishing on the open market, Barksdale apparently wasn't put off by the Rams' second-round selection of Wisconsin OT Rob Havenstein. He's also just being a realist. The Rams and Titans are the only two teams to even sniff Barksdale this spring, and the Titans have moved on.
