Odell Beckham (ankle) doesn't expect to play in any preseason games.

This looks to be injury related, but Beckham is a holdout threat in the final year of his contract. The Giants will likely want to get Beckham preseason reps in their new offense if he's healthy, so this can change between now and training camp. Beckham will make $8.4 million if he plays 2018 under his fifth-year option.

Free agent Trey Burton turned down a contract from the Eagles he "didn't consider serious."

One of the top free-agent tight ends, the Eagles don't have the cap space to re-sign Burton. He's looking for a starting role after spending the last few years behind Zach Ertz. Burton should be targeting Jared Cook money ($5M-plus annually).

ESPN’s Sarah Barshop expects D'Onta Foreman to push for a starting role this season.

With Lamar Miller coming off a down 2017, Foreman is in line for more touches after a strong rookie year. Foreman is three months removed from tearing his Achilles' but is hoping to be cleared for training camp. The Texans run game was a weak point after losing Foreman and Deshaun Watson. Foreman has a chance to overtake Miller when healthy.

The Texans could release Lamar Miller.

Miller had a career worst 3.7 YPC last season after fading down the stretch in 2016. Owed $14 million over the next two years, he’s not a lock to be back. D’Onta Foreman was pushing Miller for touches before landing on IR and gives the Texans an in-house replacement if they move on. Even if Miller returns, it’s possible he’ll be shifted into more of a pass game role. The Texans can save $5.75 million from making Miller a post June cut.

Blake Bortles (wrist) expects to be fully healthy for OTAs.

Bortles had wrist surgery last month, but he’s already resumed throwing. He should have close to a normal offseason and be ready for OTAs in April. The Jaguars created $9 million in cap space from giving Bortles a three-year extension. He’ll continue to be on the spot in 2018.

Free agent Andre Roberts expects to test free agency.

Roberts played only 31 snaps on offense but was Atlanta’s primary return man. He ranked fourth in the league with 22.6 YPR on kickoffs last year and shouldn’t struggle for special teams interest. The Falcons aren't expected to re-sign Roberts before free agency but haven’t ruled out bringing him back.

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.
