Colts have turned down multiple trade offers for QB Jacoby Brissett.

Colts GM Chris Ballard spoke highly of Brissett, mentioning "he’s committed, he’s a great teammate, he’s got juice" and "he holds people accountable". "I love Jacoby," Ballard said. Brissett has two years left on his contract for a total of $1.6 million, which makes it easy for the Colts to keep him as Andrew Luck's backup. Ballard additionally mentioned he would have to be "bowled over" with an offer before parting ways with Brissett.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman could begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

That would make him unavailable for the team's first six regular season games. Foreman tore his Achilles in November but has since been setback-free and rumored to be ready for Week 1. A healthy preseason would not only prove his readiness for the regular season, it could also allow Foreman to open 2018 in a starting role over teammate Lamar Miller.

Giants acquired Riley Dixon from the Broncos for a 2019 seventh-round pick.

Dixon wasn't needed after Denver signed Marquette King. He averaged a middling 45.6 yards on punts last year with 32 percent inside the 20-yard line. Dixon replaces Brad Wing, who was released from the Giants this offseason.

The Colts are moving OLB John Simon to defensive end.

This was expected with Indy running a 4-3 scheme. Simon is coming off one of his better seasons, posting three sacks in nine games before getting shut down with a shoulder injury. Jabaal Sheard and Tarell Basham are also moving to end.

The Ravens aren't expected to pursue free agent Dez Bryant.

The Ravens were linked to Bryant early, but will likely move on after signing Willie Snead to an offer sheet. Arizona, Green Bay and Buffalo are the teams with the most interest in Bryant to this point. It's possible Bryant waits until after the draft to sign.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan expects Louisville QB Lamar Jackson to be drafted in the top-20 picks.

This falls in line with pre-draft reports on Jackson. There's some concern over Jackson's NFL readiness, but multiple teams "really like" him. At least five quarterbacks are expected to be drafted on Day 1. Jackson going top-20 could allow Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph to sneak into the late first round.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Eagles have reached an agreement with QB Nick Foles on a revised contract.

The deal includes a mutual option for 2019, so it's possible Foles could still hit the market as a free agent next offseason. He'll also receive a $2 million signing bonus. The Eagles are sweetening Foles' deal as a way of repaying him for leading the team to its first Super Bowl last year. He'll be back as Carson Wentz's backup in 2018.

NFL suspended Panthers TE Kent Taylor four games for violating the league's policy on PEDs.

Undrafted out of UTEP, Taylor signed a futures deal with the Panthers this offseason. He'll be eligible to return against the Redskins in Week 6, provided he makes Carolina's 53-man roster. That's probably a long shot.

Restricted free agent OLB Shaq Barrett will sign his second-round tender with the Broncos on Monday.

It will lock him into a $2.914 million salary for next season. Barrett only registered four sacks last year but still earned positive marks from ProFootballFocus, grading out as PFF's No. 12 3-4 outside linebacker out of 46 qualifiers.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said the team has been in touch with Amari Cooper's agent about "possibly" exercising his fifth-year option.

"I don’t want to put anything out there, don’t want to put the cart before the horse so to speak," said McKenzie. "But we like Amari." A year ago, picking up Cooper's option would have been a no-brainer, but he damaged his stock by committing 10 drops last season, third-most in the NFL behind only Keenan Allen and Dez Bryant. The Raiders claim Cooper wasn't fully healthy, which may explain why the 23-year-old finished with career-lows in both catches (48) and receiving yards (680). The Raiders have until May 3 to decide on Cooper's option.

NFL suspended ILB Kentrell Brothers four games for violating the league's policy on PEDs.

He'll be eligible to return against the Eagles in Week 5. Brothers is a core special teamer for the Vikings. He played just nine snaps on defense last year.

Ex-Jaguars and Patriots RB Tyler Gaffney has given up football to try for a major-league baseball career.

Gaffney had some promising preseasons in the NFL, but he couldn't stay healthy. At age 26, he's trying his hand as an outfielder in the Pittsburgh Pirates' organization. "My dream has been the big leagues my whole life," Gaffney said. "I think I've been tasting that every time I was hurt. You have time to think about things like that. So now I'm here, putting in my work." A multi-sport star at Stanford, Gaffney doubled as a college baseball and football player and was drafted in the 24th round by the Pirates in 2012.

Steelers re-signed LB Anthony Chickillo.

Chickillo had been a restricted free agent. He was tendered at the original-round level, locking him into a $1.907 million salary. The 25-year-old logged 19 tackles and three sacks over 269 defensive snaps last season.

Texans GM Brian Gaine remains "optimistic" the team will sign DE Jadeveon Clowney to a long-term contract.

"I won't discuss our negotiations publicly, but I'm optimistic that something can be done," said Gaine on Friday. "We're doing our best to fortify our nucleus of players, and we'd like him to be a part of it." Only Arizona's Chandler Jones has recorded more tackles for loss than Clowney since the start of 2016. The South Carolina alum will earn $12 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Colts GM Chris Ballard confirmed Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still not throwing a football.

However, Ballard said a lot of the exercises Luck has been doing are "conducive to the same thing." Ballard added that Indy's decision to trade down from the No. 3 pick shows the team is confident in Luck's long-term health. The former No. 1 pick missed all of last year while recovering from shoulder surgery.
