The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins don't know when SLB Koa Misi (neck) will be cleared.

Misi sat out OTAs recovering from spinal fusion surgery. He's not fully over his neck issues and won't be reevaluated until training camp. The Dolphins are optimistic on Misi's status, but he isn't a lock to play this season.

The Dallas Morning News considers KR Lucky Whitehead’s roster spot in danger.

Whitehead averaged only 23.2 yards on kickoffs and 7.8 on punts last year. He doesn’t contribute as a receiver, making him an easy cut if rookie Ryan Switzer wins the return job. None of Whitehead’s $615K salary is guaranteed.

CSN MidAtlantic believes Brian Quick needs a strong training camp to make the final roster.

It falls in line with previous reports. Quick struggled at OTAs and is behind Ryan Grant for the No. 5 receiver job. He’s on the outside looking in for a spot.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Marvin Jones had a strong offseason.

"He's really had a good spring. This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start he had last year," said Caldwell. Jones worked with Randy Moss this offseason to improve his route running. There’s some breakout appeal to Jones with Anquan Boldin gone, but rookie Kenny Golladay and a healthy Eric Ebron are going to cut into his 2017 targets.

Saints third round RB Alvin Kamara saw reps at receiver during OTAs.

Kamara split time between running backs and wideouts. It confirms the Saints plan of using him in a pass-catching role. Coach Sean Payton says Kamara has been a "quick study."

Panthers DE Mario Addison expects more snaps this season.

Addison played close to 60 percent of snaps over the final three weeks of 2016. He's at his best in a third-down role, but can hold his own against the run. More playing time and an improved secondary should give Addison a chance to top last year's 9.5 sacks.

According to Archie Manning, Dolphins coach Adam Gase sent a text to Peyton Manning to gauge his interest in a comeback to football late last season.

The message was sent directly after Ryan Tannehill partially tore his ACL in Week 14 last season. The text said, "Hey 18, Tannehill went down. I think he's going to miss some time. The first question I'm going to get at the press conference in the morning is if I'm going to bring you to Miami. What do you want me to tell them?" The first question at the press conference was definitely not going to be asking if Peyton Manning would come out of retirement. This was just a sneaky way to gauge Manning's interest in a return. Manning responded, "You tell them I could probably come play, but there's no way I can miss carpool the next two weeks."

Lions S Tavon Wilson is being sued for allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face.

The alleged assault took place at a nightclub in May 2016, but Wilson completely denies he is the attacker. Wilson's lawyer says, "There's video of the incident that shows Ms. Leach [Wilson's current girlfriend] is attacked. Mr. Wilson is a witness, Ms. Leach is the victim, and Ms. Jackson [Wilson's ex-girlfriend] is the defendant... Her civil claim is meritless." A police report was filed at the time of the incident, but it was Ms. Jackson who was arrested, and not Wilson or Ms. Leach.

Titans DT Karl Klug (Achilles') is expected to miss the start of training camp.

Klug was limited to walkthroughs at OTAs. He’ll likely open camp on the active/PUP list. Klug should be ready for Week 1.

Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) is hoping to be ready for training camp.

Verrett was held out of OTAs and minicamp. There haven't been any setbacks in his ACL recovery, but the Chargers will likely continue to move him slowly. Verrett will be 11 months removed from surgery for Week 1.

Vikings S Antone Exum missed most of the offseason with a knee injury.

It's bad news after Exum missed all of 2016 with a leg injury. His training camp status should be considered questionable. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune doesn't project Exum to make the Vikings' Opening Day roster.

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) is expected to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Floyd missed the entire offseason with a career-threatening nerve issue. He's hoping to return at some point, but remains without a timetable. Anything the Vikings get from Floyd should be viewed as a bonus.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealers believes offset language is holding up contract talks with first-round S Jabrill Peppers.

Cabot is just speculating but it's become fairly common place for teams to quibble over offset language in negotiations with incoming players. First overall pick Myles Garrett was able to avoid offset language in his deal and Peppers is hoping for the same treatment. As the 25th pick, Peppers is locked into a four-year, $10.3 million contract with a $5.6 million signing bonus whenever he chooses to sign it. The deal should be finalized before training camp opens on July 27.

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal said it's "not farfetched to believe" second-year TE Seth DeValve could be the Browns' most improved player in 2017.

Ulrich said DeValve was putting on "clinics" during OTAs and looks like he could emerge as a "go-to target for whichever Browns quarterback wins the starting job." "Most of his development in the offseason was that he put on a little weight, he is noticeably stronger, he is faster and he is healthier," said TEs coach Greg Seamon. "He continues to work hard technically." DeValve should see more snaps this year with Gary Barnidge gone, but he'll still face competition from first-round rookie David Njoku.

Derek Carr said he structured his deal so the Raiders would have flexibility to sign other players.

Specifically, Carr wants the Raiders to keep their young core intact. "I told (my agent), if we can structure it in a way to help the Raiders get the other guys, give them an opportunity to come in, that that would be really important to me too," said Carr. "I just wanted to get mine done and, like we talked about, make sure the team had the flexibility to make sure my friends stay around." Carr's deal is backloaded, which should give the Raiders enough cap room to pursue contract extensions with RG Gabe Jackson and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack.
