Laken Tomlinson and Joe Dahl could compete for the Lions' right guard job.

The Lions haven’t ruled out re-signing Larry Warford, but are expected to let him test the market. Their depth on the interior makes them more likely to bring back RT Riley Reiff. Tomlinson took a step back in 10 starts last year but is the heavy favorite to replace Warford.

Jets C Wesley Johnson is expected to take over for Nick Mangold.

Johnson is a restricted free agent but will be back after making eight starts last year. The Jets plan to move forward with him as a low-cost replacement for Mangold. Mangold's release could force the Jets to give Johnson a second-round tender ($2.8 million).

Jets released C Nick Mangold.

The Jets were hoping Mangold would take a pay cut but his release was expected. It's another cap saving move from GM Mike Maccagnan. The Jets have cleared $23.6 million with Mangold, Ryan Clady ($10 million) and RT Breno Giacomini ($4.5 million) gone. There should be a strong free agent market for Mangold despite coming off injury in his age-33 season. Wesley Johnson is Mangold's in-house replacement.

Browns NT Danny Shelton had bone chips removed from his wrist in late January.

It confirms his surgery was a minor clean-up. Shelton is out of his cast and on track to resume workouts. The Browns expect him to be fine for training camp.

Trevor Siemian (shoulder surgery) said he expects to be ready for OTAs.

Siemian underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in January. "I am out of the sling and everything is going really well so far," Siemian said. "I should be good for OTAs but we'll see." Even if he is "ready" for OTAs, Brandon Stokley of 104.3 The Fan Denver reports Siemian is unlikely to practice in full until training camp. Siemian will compete with 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch if the Broncos do not add anyone else this offseason.

49ers FS Eric Reid (torn biceps) said he is almost back to full health.

Earlier this month, Reid said he "would be practicing" if the 49ers had a game. Reid has struggled since a promising rookie season, and San Francisco is reportedly "contemplating" moving CB Jimmie Ward to his free safety spot. The 49ers are in no position to cut a promising player, but Reid clearly has plenty to prove entering the final year of his rookie deal.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reports the 49ers "are contemplating" shifting Jimmie Ward to safety.

The 49ers are switching to a "4-3" which will attempt to emulate the Seahawks' scheme. If they move Ward to safety, the position he was projected to play coming out of college, he would likely be asked to play a role similar to the one filled by Earl Thomas in Seattle. Ward has been the 49ers' most consistent corner the last couple seasons, however, and they already have former first-rounder Eric Reid at free safety. Unless they are giving up on Reid, this would be a curious move.

ESPN's John Keim reports it is "likely" the Redskins pursue impending free agent DE Calais Campbell.

The match makes sense. Campbell is one of the most impactful defensive lineman available while Washington needs to add playmakers to their front seven. There will be plenty of other teams interested if Campbell hits the open market, however, and Keim questions whether the Redskins are willing to get involved in a bidding war for a 30-year-old. Campbell has also been linked with the Broncos, and it will not be surprising if he ends up re-signing with the Cardinals.

Jaguars acquired LT Branden Albert from the Dolphins in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick.

We are marking this as official after EVP Tom Coughlin said he does not "see any reason" why the trade will not go through when the new league year begins on March 9. It is still unclear if Albert took a pay cut on the $8.9 million is was scheduled to make with the Dolphins. Albert is 32, has averaged 12 games a season since 2011, and appears to be trending downward. The Jaguars still need to be looking toward the future at left tackle.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette is back with the team on a one-year, $800,000 contract.

Galette's contract tolled after he spent all of 2016 on the non-football injury list, but still took a pay cut on the $1.6 million he was scheduled to make. Galette has not played since 2014 because of back-to-back Achilles' tears, but he is a solid, low-cost gamble for a team in need of pass rushers.

ESPN's Tim McManus speculates Jamaal Charles could be an option for the Eagles if he is released.

Charles is set to count almost $6.2 million against the salary cap, and the Chiefs can save all of that by releasing him. Considering he is coming off two lost seasons due to knee issues, it is almost a given Kansas City will move on. If they do, the Eagles make a lot of sense. Coach Doug Pederson was his coordinator in Kansas City, and they need backfield help even if they do not cut Ryan Mathews. Signing Charles will be a gamble, but it could prove a smart, low-cost move for an Eagles' organization pinching pennies as they attempt to surround Carson Wentz with weapons.

ESPN's Rich Cimini would "be surprised" if Jay Cutler ended up with the Jets.

Cutler to the Jets seems to be the rumor du jour, but Cimini has consistently shot those rumors down. Still, the dots are easy to connect with Cutler's former position coach and former teammates in New York, and the Jets are likely looking for a veteran bridge of Cutler's ilk to get them to their future quarterback. The noise is unlikely to die until the Jets add someone else or Cutler signs with a different team.

Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta said the Ravens are looking to add a possession receiver.

"I think we're looking for a guy that can catch the ball, move the chains and get critical first downs when needed," DeCosta said. Brandon Marshall would seem to fit that description, and The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec has already written the Ravens "would at least inquire" if the Jets release him. Baltimore also has a long history of signing veteran receivers at the tail end of their careers, and Marshall would not count towards the compensatory pick formula if he is released. It all makes too much sense to actually happen.

Colts LG Jack Mewhort (knee) said he is "ready to go."

Mewhort ended an injury-riddled season on injured reserve with a chondral defect, which involved his meniscus and bone. He underwent surgery to repair the issue, but he is nearing the end of his recovery. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Mewhort should be in a great position to cash in next offseason if he is able to stay healthy.

Impending free agent Robert Woods said he is content with the No. 2 role in Buffalo.

"Sammy [Watkins] deserves being the number one," Woods said. "As long as we are progressing, moving the ball down the field and making plays, I have no problem with that." The comments suggest he is open to re-signing with the Bills, who have no receiving talent behind Watkins and Woods. The former second rounder has averaged 51 catches for 613 yards and three touchdowns his four years in Buffalo.
