According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, it would take "at least a first-round pick and more compensation" for the Vikings to consider trading Adrian Peterson.

That's quite a haul for a 30-year-old running back who hasn't played since Week 1 of last season. The "compensation" the Vikings are looking for is a starting cornerback, a position they're expected to address in the draft. The Vikings' front office feels the team is "so much better" with Peterson and they're absolutely right. It may not seem like it, but Minnesota still holds all the cards. Interest in Peterson around the league has been minimal with only the Cardinals, Cowboys and Raiders in the mix.

Alfonzo Dennard has spent the offseason working out with teammates Duron Harmon, Devin McCourty and Tavon Wilson in Arizona.

He's working to get back on the Patriots' radar after falling behind Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan on the depth chart. Dennard seems to finally be over the hamstring injury that plagued him most of last season. Cutting Dennard would only cost New England $14,000 in dead money so his roster spot is far from secure. Dennard is in the final year of his rookie contract.

According to a study done by Football Perspective, Richard Sherman was the least targeted cornerback in the NFL last season.

The ball was thrown in his direction 65 times on 552 passing plays, 25.5 fewer times than the average corner. This confirms Sherman is still the most feared corner in football. Even the eventual MVP Aaron Rodgers stayed clear of Sherman, avoiding him completely in a Week 1 loss. The Legion of Boom may have lost Byron Maxwell but as long as Sherman is around, the Seahawks should still have one of the league's most potent secondaries.

The Cowboys have until May 3 to exercise Morris Claiborne's fifth-year option.

It's going to be hard to judge Claiborne (torn patellar tendon) while he's out of commission. Jerry Jones said in January that Claiborne has done enough to warrant a fifth year but we haven't heard much since. Claiborne hasn't been the player the Cowboys were hoping he'd be when they drafted him, logging just three interceptions in 29 career games. His $2.6 million salary for 2015 is guaranteed.

Denard Robinson (foot) has been at full health since February.

Robinson sat out the final three games of the 2014 campaign with a torn ligament in his foot. Shoelace showed some nice versatility when healthy, racking up 706 yards on 158 touches. Despite his emergence, Robinson's lack of size is a concern (he's listed at 197 pounds) and the Jags are likely to take a running back at some point in the draft. Toby Gerhart and Storm Jackson will also be in the mix for carries in 2015.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny hopes to be back to his normal playing weight by training camp.

Posluszny's weight dropped to 223 after undergoing chest surgery, but he's already back up to 235 and should be close to his normal weight of 242 by the time camp opens. Posluszny is the Jaguars' defensive anchor and finally got paid like it, agreeing to a three-year contract earlier this month.

Jaron Brown (shoulder) will participate in the Cardinals’ offseason program.

Brown suffered a fractured shoulder in January, but managed to avoid surgery. He expects to be full speed for the start of OTAs. Brown is Arizona's No. 4 receiver.

CSN Washington doesn't project Chris Thompson to open the season as the Redskins' third-down back.

Coach Jay Gruden said last month Thompson would get the first chance to replace Roy Helu. Thompson has the skill-set to be an asset in the receiving game, but the Redskins have concerns about his pass protection and history of injuries. Washington could look for an upgrade on Thompson in the draft. Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah and Alabama’s T.J. Yeldon are potential Day 2 targets.

Coach Gary Kubiak said the Broncos will remain a no-huddle offense.

The Broncos are expected to have Peyton Manning under center more this season, but have no plans to move away from their no-huddle attack. "We'll definitely be running the hurry-up," Kubiak confirmed. "Peyton's been the best at it for years, so that's a strength that we'll stay with." Manning projects to throw less as he enters his age-39 season, but is still locked in as a high-end QB1.

ESPN’s John Keim doesn’t expect Morgan Moses (foot surgery) to win the Redskins’ right tackle job.

Moses was active for eight games (one start) as a rookie due to Lisfranc surgery. His status is questionable for the start of training camp. Moses struggled on the field in 2014 and could be limited to swing-tackle duties. Washington is likely to improve its offensive line in the early rounds of the draft.

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent SS Brynden Trawick to a one-year, $585,000 contract.

Undrafted in 2013, Trawick is in his third season with Baltimore. He appeared in 14 games on special teams last year. Trawick, 25, will compete for one of the Ravens' final roster spots.

Andre Johnson will participate in the Colts' offseason program.

Johnson held out of OTAs with Houston last year. He’s learning a new offense in Indy and wants to use voluntary workouts to get more acclimated in OC Pep Hamilton’s scheme. Johnson is expected to replace Reggie Wayne as Andrew Luck’s primary underneath receiver.

Percy Harvin expects the Bills to use him as an all-around receiver.

Outside of a nine-game stretch with the Jets, Harvin has been limited to the slot for the majority of his career. He has a clear path to playing time in Buffalo, with only Sammy Watkins ahead of him. Harvin projects to start over Robert Woods in base sets and move inside in three-wide packages. The Bills aren’t committed to Harvin beyond this year and could add a receiver on Day 2 of the draft.

Bills.com’s Chris Brown considers LT Cordy Glenn a candidate for extension.

Glenn allowed a career-high eight sacks in 2014, but has been one of the better pass-blocking left tackles the last two seasons. The Bills aren’t letting Glenn reach the open market, but re-signing him could prove difficult with DT Marcell Dareus and LB Nigel Bradham also in their final season. 25-year-old Glenn could command a deal in excess of Jared Veldheer's five-year, $35 million contract.
Apr 18 - 4:09 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan views Corey Graham as an outside corner.

The Bills are moving to a press-man scheme, which relies heavily on shutdown corners. Graham graded as a top-ten cover corner by PFF last year, but played mostly zone under ex-DC Jim Schwartz. At 6’0/190, Graham has the size to hold up at the line of scrimmage. Graham has the inside track over Leodis McKelvin to start opposite RCB Stephon Gilmore.
