Jets TE Jace Amaro expects to be involved in the pass game.
The Jets had only eight catches from their tight ends last season. Amaro’s return has potential to give them an upgrade, but he isn’t a roster lock after missing all of 2015. Even if he starts, Amaro projects for a low-volume role.
Lions WLB DeAndre Levy (hip) has been practicing in team drills.
Levy’s next step is getting cleared for 11-on-11 work. He looks finally over his 2015 hip issues. Levy should be fully healthy for training camp.
Dolphins SS Reshad Jones is not participating at OTAs.
Jones plans to skip the entire offseason. His holdout could carry into mandatory camp despite having two years and $14.285 million remaining on his deal. Already one of the highest-paid safeties, Jones wants an extension closer to $10M-plus annually.
Raiders first-round S Karl Joseph (knee) has been limited at OTAs.
Joseph was also held out of rookie minicamp. He’s not fully cleared from his torn ACL, but there isn't concern over his status. The Raiders expect Joseph to be ready for training camp.
Stephen Hill (ACL surgery) is limited at OTAs.
The Panthers re-signed Hill to a minimum salary ($600,000) earlier this offseason. He should be ready for training camp, but there’s a lot working against him. Hill is competing for one of Carolina's final receiver spots.
Redskins third-round CB Kendall Fuller (microfracture surgery) has been cleared for team drills.
Fuller said he was "90 percent healthy" earlier this month. He remains on track for the start of training camp. Fuller should open the season in a nickel role behind Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland.
The Redskins "remain interested" in free agent Pierre Thomas.
Thomas was out of the league for most of last season, but held his own in a third-down role over the final two weeks. The player once horribly nicknamed "P.T. Cruiser" would be insurance on Chris Thompson (shoulder surgery).
Broncos OG Ty Sambrailo (shoulder) could be cleared for team drills next week.
Sambrailo has done only individual work in the early part of OTAs. He's closing in on six months removed from labrum surgery. A three-game starter at left tackle before landing on I.R., Sambrailo will play one of the guard spots this year.
