Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media named Wendell Smallwood as one of several Eagles on the roster bubble.

Smallwood filled a change-of-pace role for the Eagles early last year but watched his playing time evaporate after the team acquired Jay Ajayi at the trade deadline. In a crowded backfield featuring Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles, Shorr-Parks believes Smallwood faces a "steep uphill battle" to make the team out of training camp. Taylor Hart, Matt Jones, Donnel Pumphrey, Richard Rodgers, Nate Sudfield, Bryce Treggs, Chance Warmack and Markus Wheaton were also listed on Shorr-Parks' roster bubble.

Terrance Williams released a statement following his arrest Saturday in Frisco, Texas.

Williams was charged with public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident, both misdemeanors. The Cowboys receiver said he hopped the curb to avoid a collision after the car in front of him slammed on his brakes. After exchanging insurance information with the other driver, Williams said he was dropped off at home by a neighbor and immediately called a tow truck to collect his vehicle. Williams was on his way to meet the tow-truck driver when police stopped him on his scooter. According to Williams, no sobriety tests were administered. Williams' agent, Chip Lewis, released his own statement, disputing a claim that Williams struck a light pole with his Lamborghini. "We are confident that once all the facts are brought to light in court Terrance will be vindicated," said Lewis. Coming off another underwhelming season in 2017, this arrest could put Williams' roster spot in jeopardy.

Patriots DE Adrian Clayborn injured his quad during workouts last week.

The injury could limit Clayborn's availability for "Phase 3" of OTAs, though the veteran defensive end should be back at full strength by the time training camp opens in July. Clayborn led the Falcons with a career-high 9.5 sacks last season with six of those takedowns coming in a Week 10 win over Dallas.

Dolphins MLB Raekwon McMillan (knee) has been cleared for OTAs.

McMillan missed his entire rookie season to ACL surgery. He'll likely be limited for next week's workouts, but continues to trend in the right direction. McMillan should be close to 100 percent for training camp.

Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman will rep with the first-team offense at OTAs.

With Virgil Green gone, Heuerman will get the first chance to replace him as an in-line starter. Jake Butt and fifth-round TE Troy Fumagalli should also mix in behind Heuerman.

The Sacramento Bee expects SLB Eli Harold to keep his starting role.

Harold started 10 games last year, but graded as one of the worst outside linebackers in the league. His veteran status should secure his early-season role opposite WLB Malcolm Smith in base sets. With Reuben Foster's legal situation trending up, third-round LB Fred Warner may get a chance to push Harold and Smith for snaps.

ESPN's Michael Rothstein considers the Lions a possible landing spot for free agent DT Alan Branch.

Branch played in Matt Patricia's scheme in New England. He hasn’t had any interest since his team option was declined in March, but would give Detroit a veteran replacement for Haloti Ngata. The Lions have also been linked to free agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois.

Cardinals CB Jamar Taylor is likely to open the season in a starting role.

This was expected after Arizona traded a sixth-rounder for him. Taylor took a step back last season, but he's an upgrade over Brandon Williams. The Cardinals are hoping Taylor can give them a steady presence opposite Patrick Peterson.

Terrance Williams was arrested in Frisco, Texas early Saturday morning on charges of public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident.

Both charges are misdemeanors. According to police, Williams crashed his Lamborghini into a light pole at 3 AM and fled the scene. He was arrested when police found him riding an electric bicycle near his home about two hours later. Williams has since been released on a $369 bond. The 28-year-old caught 53 passes for 568 yards and no touchdowns for Dallas in 2017.

Browns second-round OL Austin Corbett practiced at left tackle during rookie minicamp.

Corbett also worked on snapping the ball after practices. Cleveland's biggest need is at left tackle after losing future Hall of Famer Joe Thomas to retirement this offseason. Corbett's biggest competition at that position will come from Shon Coleman, who earned PFF's No. 68 grade out of 83 qualifiers at tackle last year.

Ex-Browns QB Johnny Manziel has signed a contract with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The former Heisman Trophy winner announced the news himself on social media and said his deal is a two-year contract. Manziel's comeback has been in the works for some time as the 25-year-old performed in front of scouts twice in March and also competed in the Spring League last month. The Patriots were said to be interested in Manziel but instead used a seventh-round draft pick on LSU's Danny Etling. The former first-round pick threw for 1,675 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in two seasons with Cleveland before off-field distractions and substance abuse issues derailed his career.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media, Donnel Pumphrey faces an "uphill battle" to keep his Eagles roster spot.

He spent last season on injured reserve following a disappointing training camp. Pumphrey has reportedly bulked up since last year after weighing only 176 pounds as a rookie. That should help, though Pumphrey remains a long shot to keep his roster spot with Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles all ahead of him on the team's running back depth chart.

Eagles LE Brandon Graham (ankle) is expected to report to the team's facility for the start of OTAs on Monday.

Graham won't actually practice—he underwent right ankle surgery on May 1 and remains in a walking boot—but it's a good sign that he plans on being around the team, even as he seeks an extension. The Eagles are hoping Graham will be ready for the start of training camp in two months. The 30-year-old defensive end is entering the final year of a four-year, $26 million contract.

Phillip Dorsett had his training camp workout bonus reduced from $450,000 to $150,000.

The bonus is due on the fifth day of training camp. By accepting a smaller bonus, Dorsett gives himself a better chance to stick on the Patriots' 53-man roster. Even if Dorsett makes the team out of camp, he'll face an uphill battle for playing time behind Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell at wide receiver.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media said it would "not be surprising at all" if Darren Sproles led the Eagles in running back snaps this season.

He had been the Eagles' starter before his injury last year and even with Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement returning, Shorr-Parks still expects Sproles to occupy a major role in 2018. "The Eagles are not bringing him back for a feel-good story," said Shorr-Parks. "They are bringing him back because they plan on using him." The 34-year-old compiled 865 yards from scrimmage on 146 touches during the 2016 campaign and makes for a sensible late-round flyer in fantasy.
