The Bills are interested in extending contract-year LB Nigel Bradham.

Bradham is coming off a career year, recording 104 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three turnovers despite missing two games. The Bills want to keep Bradham, but are unlikely to extend him until Marcell Dareus gets a new deal. After playing the strong side under Jim Schwartz, Bradham is expected to move inside in Rex Ryan’s 3-4 scheme.
Apr 17 - 8:03 PM’s Chris Brown expects S Duke Williams to "make a big jump" in 2015.

Williams is in line for increased snaps with Da’Norris Searcy no longer in Buffalo. He graded out positively against the run in a part-time role last year, but has been a liability in coverage to this point. The Bills haven't added any depth to their secondary this offseason, leaving Williams as the clear favorite to start. Corey Graham should also see time at safety in sub packages.

Packers re-signed exclusive rights free agent S Chris Banjo to a one-year, $585,000 contract.

Banjo spent the majority of 2014 on Green Bay's practice squad. He'll compete for one of the Packers’ final roster spots. With Micah Hyde and Sean Richardson locked into backup roles, Banjo will remain limited to special teams.

The Union-Tribune San Diego suggests Philip Rivers could retire after this season.

Rivers cut off extension talks with the Chargers in March due to relocation fears. It’s becoming increasingly clear that 2015 could be his last year in San Diego -- assuming he's a Charger this year at all. Rivers, 33, would reportedly consider retirement if confronted with playing in L.A. The Chargers are rumored to be interested in trading up for the No. 2 pick to draft Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent TE Phillip Supernaw to a one-year, $510,000 contract.

Supernaw appeared in eight games (33 snaps) between Baltimore and Kansas City last season. With Dennis Pitta’s future uncertain, he gives the Ravens veteran depth. Supernaw will compete for a backup role.

49ers FB Bruce Miller is not attending offseason workouts.

Miller's absence is due to his March arrest for suspicion of spousal abuse. 49ers GM Trent Baalke said he'll revisit Miller's status once the situation is resolved.

The 49ers see 2014 third-round pick Brandon Thomas as Mike Iupati's successor at left guard.

Thomas missed his rookie season after tearing his ACL during a pre-draft team workout. He was drafted last year with Iupati's impending departure in mind. "He looks very good at this point," Baalke said of Thomas. "He's come off the knee injury very well. He's strong. He's moving well." Thomas will have to hold off Marcus Martin and Joe Looney in training camp.

49ers GM Trent Baalke said Friday the team is working to extend ILB Michael Wilhoite's contract.

The Sacramento Bee reported the 49ers were trying to trade Wilhoite in early March. Following the surprise retirements of Patrick Willis and Chris Borland, the team has done a full 180. Wilhoite is currently an unsigned exclusive rights free agent. If the 49ers are cap savvy, they'll let him play 2015 on a minimum tender and work to extend Wilhoite if he plays well this season.

Titans RB Dexter McCluster declared himself 100 percent recovered from his late-season knee injury.

McCluster fractured his kneecap last December. An ineffective gadget player throughout his career, McCluster is entering his age-27 season. The Titans have spoken openly of increasing McCluster's role, indicative of a special kind of delusion that makes the Titans the Titans. McCluster has averaged 2.83 yards per carry the past two years and struggles in pass protection.

49ers GM Trent Baalke revealed that Carlos Hyde has dropped his weight into the "mid-220s."

Baalke added that Hyde looks "extremely good." Hyde measured 6-foot, 230 at the 2014 Combine. Weight loss has had positive recent effects on Le'Veon Bell, Eddie Lacy, LeSean McCoy (pre-2014), and Marshawn Lynch early in his Seattle career. If the 49ers decline to draft a running back who poses significant competition to Hyde, he'll only have Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter to beat out for touches. Hyde has high-end RB2 upside for 2015.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero "keep(s) hearing" Louisville WR DeVante Parker won't last until the Dolphins pick at No. 14 overall.

Despite lacking a third-round pick, the Dolphins are believed to be interested in trading up for a wide receiver. Amari Cooper and Kevin White should be off the board in the top ten, making Parker the most realistic target at 14. Salguero reports the Rams at No. 10 and Vikings at No. 11 are significant obstacles standing in the way of Parker lasting until the Dolphins' pick.

ESPN's Adam Caplan considers Bryce Petty of Baylor the "favorite" to be the third quarterback drafted.

Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will be Nos. 1 and 2. Petty is the favorite to be No. 3 -- perhaps as early as a the high second round -- while UCLA's Brett Hundley and Colorado State's Garrett Grayson could battle to be this year's No. 4. Caplan calls Grayson a candidate to "go higher than most expect."

Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall underwent surgery on his right foot last month.

Marshall missed two games in December with what the Broncos called a mid-foot sprain. He later returned for Denver's playoff loss. The mid-foot area and surgery are always scary when paired together because it normally means a Lisfranc issue. Marshall is tentatively expected to be ready for training camp.

Free agent Greg Jennings left his Saints visit without a contract.

It'll be his last visit, according to the New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill. In addition to the Saints, the Ravens, Panthers, and Jaguars remain interested in Jennings. He also visited the Dolphins after his release from the Vikings. Jennings isn't going to get more than about $3 million on a one-year contract.

The Dallas PD has suspended its aggravated assault case against Broncos CB Aqib Talib.

Talib was being investigated for assault after an incident on April 8. After talking to witnesses, the Dallas PD said it doesn't have enough evidence to proceed at this time. This story should fade away. Talib can move on with his life.
