NJ Advance Media's Zack Rosenblatt suggested Eagles contract-year DE Brandon Graham is unlikely to get an extension.

Graham is entering the final year of a four-year, $26 million contract. Coming off a 9.5 sack season in which he helped seal the Super Bowl win with a strip sack, Graham is likely looking for more on his next deal, but Rosenblatt cautions GM Howie Roseman has been reluctant to give big extensions to players over 30, a mark Graham hit in April. If he does hit the open market, Graham should command around $15 million a year.

NBC Sports Washington's Rich Tandler writes "the feeling is" sophomore CB Fabian Moreau "won't remain a reserve."

A third-round pick last year, Moreau was limited to just 59 defensive snaps as a rookie, but he was a solid contributor on special teams. With both Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller gone, Moreau should get a real shot to win a job on defense. Quinton Dunbar and Orlando Scandrick are currently penciled in behind Josh Norman.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Royce Freeman "absolutely" can win the lead job.

A third-round pick, Freeman is competing with Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson for work. The most likely outcome is a committee, but Joseph is leaving open the possibility of Freeman winning a featured role. If he does, he will have a good chance to pay off his fifth-round ADP.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Michael Cohen spotted Randall Cobb wearing a walking boot on his right foot.

Cobb participated in OTAs, so it is a new injury. He said the boot was "temporary" but would not disclose if he underwent surgery. Cohen reports the team could ease the receiver into camp, but there is no concern about his availability for Week 1. Cobb has WR2 upside as the Packers' clear No. 2 receiver, but he carries some injury concern as well.

Julian Edelman's appeal of his four-game PED suspension is scheduled for Monday.

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Edelman plans to argue the suspension should be thrown out because the NFL mishandled his results. As MMQB reported last week, the league's testers also could not identify the substance which triggered a positive test. The most likely outcome remains Edelman serving the four-game ban, but he seems to have a better chance than most to get the decision overturned.

Blake Bortles said he feels more comfortable in the Jaguars' offense after adjusting to a new coaching staff in 2017.

"When we started last year, it was kind of an elementary level, in terms of ‘I’m hearing the play, I’m thinking about the footwork I have to take, the identification, trying to remember what routes guys are running and all that," he said. "Now, I think I’m kind of owning the offense and having a better understanding of it." No one would ever mistake Bortles for Aaron Rodgers, though he should at least benefit from a strong supporting cast in Jacksonville. He signed a three-year extension this offseason, keeping him in Duval through his age-28 season.

Jamison Crowder feels healthier this offseason after struggling with hamstring issues throughout 2017.

"I feel great now," said Crowder. "It was frustrating. When you go out there with a lingering injury, you’re already setting yourself behind." The contract-year wideout was a standout at OTAs, drawing praise from teammate Alex Smith, who complemented Crowder's body control and ability to read the defense. Chris Thompson also noted that Crowder has been keeping up with him in sprints after lagging behind in years past. The 25-year-old put an emphasis on strength during his offseason training, opting for more "dynamic lifts" including power and hang cleans. All signs point to a breakout year for the Redskins' slot receiver.

A.J. Green said he's "comfortable" with his current contract.

Green was, at one point, the highest-paid receiver in football. He's since fallen to sixth on that list behind the likes of Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Jarvis Landry. Green is probably due for a raise, though the 29-year-old isn't worried about his contract status. "At the end of the day I just want to play football," said the seven-time Pro Bowler. "I got my contract. I’m set for life. Now I can just go out there and play." Green's contract expires after 2019.

Jaguars OLB Blair Brown is expected to start on the strong side.

Brown played with the first-team defense in offseason workouts. He has the early edge over Donald Payne and seventh-rounder Leon Jacobs. With Telvin Smith and Myles Jack in every-down roles, Brown should be limited to base sets.

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander visited with the Jets.

The Saints, Colts, and Kansas City also met with him. It confirms Alexander's league wide interest after 26 teams attended his Pro Day. Alexander (6'2/195) has starting traits but was suspended multiple times at Virginia Tech and his measurables (4.6 forty) would have ranked at the bottom of this year's class. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Alexander a third-round supplemental grade.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is unsure if he'll be ready for training camp.

Mitchell was held out of offseason workouts. He's over a year removed from his knee injury, so it's possible the Patriots have just been moving him slowly. With Julian Edelman suspended, Mitchell is competing for a role in four-wide sets.
Jun 23 - 4:17 PM

Cardinals LT D.J. Humphries (knee) is "trending to be ready" for the start of the season.

Humphries got in some limited offseason reps but wasn't cleared for team drills. There haven't been any setbacks in his rehab from MCL surgery. Humphries looks to have a good chance of returning for training camp.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt believes it's "too early to say" if RT Jack Conklin (knee) will be ready for Week 1.

Conklin missed OTAs recovering from January ACL surgery. He's expected to open training camp on the active/PUP list, but there's hope he'll return before the start of the season. Conklin was one of the top pass-blocking right tackles in the league before going down in the playoffs. The Titans have a proven backup in Dennis Kelly if Conklin isn't back for Week 1.

Panthers TE Ian Thomas got reps with the first-team offense at minicamp.

Thomas made only 11 starts in his two years at Indiana but blew up the Combine (91st-percentile SPARQ). The Panthers drafted Thomas as a project but he's shown enough to push Chris Manhertz for the No. 2 job behind Greg Olsen. Thomas has the pass-catching skills for a rookie impact.
Jun 23 - 2:27 PM

Panthers DE Wes Horton could have an expanded role this season.

Horton managed 5.5 sacks on 359 snaps (34%) last year. With Charles Johnson gone and Julius Peppers limited to pass downs, he's a good bet to see an uptick in playing time. A strong training camp would make Horton the favorite to start opposite Mario Addison.
