The Titans want Bishop Sankey to put on additional weight.

Sankey tipped the scales at 209 at the Combine last year. The Titans want him to bulk up to 215-220 to be able to handle the rigors of the NFL. They also want Sankey to better understand the offense. We don't like weight gain with running backs, as it often makes them slower. Coming off a down rookie season and with the addition of David Cobb, we don't have a rosy outlook for Sankey.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said second-year DL DaQuan Jones is a starter for the Titans.

Jones was the 112th pick in last year's draft and played 143 snaps, starting the Week 17 finale. He played some end and nose tackle in DC Ray Horton's 3-4 scheme. Jones currently projects to the end spot opposite Pro Bowl DE Jurrell Casey, though nose tackle could also be up for grabs on a weak line.

Colts signed No. 29 overall pick WR Phillip Dorsett to a four-year contract.

As is the case with all first-rounders, Dorsett's deal comes with a fifth-year team option. Out of the gate, Dorsett will compete with Donte Moncrief, Duron Carter, and possibly Vincent Brown for No. 3 receiver duties. The speed demon should be a factor right off the bat as the Colts' return man.

Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') is sitting out Lions OTAs.

Bell had both his knee and Achilles' surgically repaired following last season. He enters 2015 with red flags concerning injuries, ineffectiveness after averaging under 3.9 YPC the past two seasons, and role following the addition of Ameer Abdullah. Joique also turns 29 before the season. Per Fantasy Football Calculator, Bell's current ADP is in the middle of round four.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Adrian Peterson has "two choices: he can play for us or not play."

It's as strong a statement as we've heard from the Vikings regarding Peterson, though they've been hinting at this for months. Peterson has no leverage. He's due $12.75 million, an amount the Vikings are willing to pay and a salary that other teams aren't looking to acquire. It's Minnesota or nowhere for A.D.

Former Eagles, Jaguars, and Vikings RB Henry Josey signed with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.

After tearing up last preseason with the Eagles to the tune of 6.6 YPC, Josey was part of final cuts and has since had stints with the Jaguars and Vikings, though he's never appeared in a regular-season game. Small at 5'8/194, Josey will take his 4.43 wheels to the pass-happy CFL. He caught 175 passes at Mizzou.

Matt Forte reported for the start of Bears OTAs on Wednesday.

Forte had already said he had no plans of holding out, even though he would prefer a new contract. While Forte is expected to see far fewer looks as a pass catcher under new OC Adam Gase, he's still expected to be a true workhorse.

Giants DE Robert Ayers was carted off the field at Wednesday's OTAs practice with a left ankle and knee injuries.

Ayers is attempting to come back from a torn pectoral after racking up five sacks in 12 games last season while playing stout run defense. The Giants are counting on him to lead the rotation at left end before ceding passing-down snaps to Damontre Moore. We'll update Ayers' status when more is known.

Jaguars signed second-round RB T.J. Yeldon to a four-year contract.

Yeldon, the 36th overall pick and third running back off the board in the 2015 draft, is expected to operate as the Jaguars' feature back. There's plenty of RB2 appeal here as the Jaguars try to commit more to their running game. The only concern here is if the Jaguars can get Yeldon enough scoring opportunities.

Coach Rex Ryan said Corey Graham will see most of his reps at safety.

In an effort to get his best players on the field, Ryan is giving Graham some run at safety next to returning starter Aaron Williams after the Bills lost SS Da'Norris Searcy in free agency. The Bills have some depth at corner with Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, Ronald Darby, Nickell Robey, and Ron Brooks.

First-round pick Ereck Flowers opened OTAs as the Giants' starting left tackle.

With LT Will Beatty out for the next 5-6 months with a torn pectoral, the Giants are forced to juggle their line. Flowers was expected to man the right tackle spot as a rookie, but will now protect Eli Manning's blind side. The rest of the Giants' front-five at OTAs: LG Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG John Jerry, RT Marshall Newhouse. RG Geoff Schwartz is still coming back from injury.

Cowboys MLB Rolando McClain underwent an offseason knee scope and isn't participating in OTAs.

Per coach Jason Garrett, McClain is also taking care of some personal business away from OTAs. McClain drew little interest on the free-agent market before re-upping with the Cowboys on a one-year, $3 million pact. We assume he'll be fine for the start of training camp where he'll man the MIKE linebacker spot.

Redskins released CB Tracy Porter.

The move saves the Redskins about $2.3 million in cap space. Signed to a two-year, $6 million contract last offseason, Porter played in three games for the Redskins before missing the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. Highly injury-prone throughout his career, Porter has played a full 16-game season just once. Porter turns 29 in August and has been a liability on the field recently.

The Texans will appear on this summer's season of HBO's Hard Knocks.

As expected. The Texans don't jump off the screen as a team many would have near the top of the list of candidates for the show, but deep down there are plenty of intriguing storylines. Coach Bill O'Brien is fiery much like Rex Ryan and could pop off at any minute on the show, while the Texans will also be holding a full-blown quarterback competition to track this summer. J.J. Watt will certainly have plenty of air time as the league's premier defensive player. Arian Foster and DeAndre Hopkins should have starring roles as premier playmakers.
May 27 - 10:48 AM

Redskins released RG Chris Chester.

Chester, 32, has started all 64 games for Washington the past four seasons, but isn't a fit for coach Jay Gruden's power-blocking scheme at just 305 pounds. The veteran remained a serviceable guard last season, especially in pass protection, so he should get another look. The Redskins save $4 million against the cap with the move. Spencer Long is now the favorite at right guard.
