Raiders waived/failed physical TE Nick Kasa.

LB Bojay Filimoeatu, CB Jansen Watson and LB Justin Jackson were also cut loose. A 2013 sixth-rounder, Kasa is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last August. A former defensive end, Kasa was converted to tight end late in his college career. He has (had) 4.71 wheels to go along with his 6-foot-6, 265-pound frame, but caught only one pass in 16 games as a rookie. He'll have to prove he's healthy before getting a second chance elsewhere.

Ravens signed East Carolina WR Cam Worthy to a three-year contract.

Worthy (6'2/211) bookended Justin Hardy at ECU, amassing 74 catches for 1,311 yards (17.7 YPR) and six TDs in two seasons after transferring from JUCO. Worthy's special teams experience gives him a good shot at landing a roster spot, and plus athleticism makes him an intriguing long-term prospect.
May 5 - 4:57 PM

Patriots waived LB Deontae Skinner and LS Tyler Ott.

A 2014 undrafted free agent, Skinner appeared in seven games as a rookie, making one start. He'll be a long shot for the 53-man roster wherever he ends up.
May 5 - 4:15 PM

Chiefs waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

The Chiefs didn't draft a signal caller, but decided their quarterback room was too full. Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray now comprise Andy Reid's top four. Pryor's stay with the team lasted all of 42 days. Pryor is less than two years removed from starting nine games for the Raiders, but like Tim Tebow, his lack of passing skills is shutting doors faster than they can open.
May 5 - 4:08 PM

Broncos waived OT Paul Cornick and WR Jeremy Kelley.

Cornick appeared in 12 games for the Broncos last season, making six emergency starts at right tackle. Although he was highly ineffective, Cornick should get a chance to compete for a 53-man roster spot elsewhere.
May 5 - 3:54 PM

Cardinals waived/released CB Roc Carmichael and RB Zach Bauman.

Carmichael was briefly on the Eagles' roster last season, but hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2013. He'll try to latch on elsewhere as a camp body.
May 5 - 3:52 PM

Yahoo's Charles Robinson would "expect" the Cardinals to look into free agent Jermaine Gresham following John Carlson's retirement.

That's "once (Gresham's) medicals check out." Gresham is recovering from March back surgery. It's unclear if Robinson is just spitballing, or passing along informed speculation. The top of the Cardinals' tight end depth chart is shaky, with former basketball player Darren Fells joining 2014 second-rounder Troy Niklas. Niklas' rookie year was marred by ankle issues.
May 5 - 3:22 PM

Mike Wallace believes he's the fastest player in the NFL.

Wallace says he's run a 4.21 40-yard dash in the past. "I’ve run a lot of routes and I’ve got a lot of miles on my legs, but I still feel that there’s nobody (in the NFL) who can run with me," Wallace said. "I might have slowed down a little, but I could still run 4.25." Wallace's boast is impossible to prove, but his elite speed was still in good working order last season. He'll be able to take the tops off teams for his new club.

Profootballtalk reports teams can't officially meet with LSU G/T La'El Collins until May 9.

It explains why the Dolphins are sending only players, and not coaches or executives. It's unclear how Bills coach Rex Ryan was able to host Collins for dinner. It means the race for Collins might not really heat up until Saturday.
May 5 - 2:49 PM

Cardinals in-house reporter Darren Urban says the team was already "counting" on a breakout from second-year TE Troy Niklas before John Carlson's surprise retirement on Tuesday.

Coming off an injury-ruined rookie year, the 2014 second-rounder finds himself atop the depth chart alongside Darren Fells. Carlson's retirement does little for Niklas' fantasy stock, as he's a heavy-footed possession receiver in the Anthony Fasano mold. Bruce Arians' tight ends aren't counted on to make plays with the football.
May 5 - 2:12 PM

49ers signed Auburn S Jermaine Whitehead.

Whitehead (5'11/197) was a three-year starter in the Tigers' secondary, amassing nine INTs and contributing on special teams throughout his college career. Although Whitehead ran 4.59 at the Combine, he excelled in the vertical (37") and broad (10'8") jumps and was a top performer in the three-cone and shuttle drills. A quick-twitch mover who holds his own in run support, Whitehead's draft stock was affected by clashes with the Auburn coaching staff, his smallish build for a safety and questionable on-field instincts.
May 5 - 2:10 PM

Cardinals TE John Carlson is retiring after seven years in the NFL.

One week shy of his 31st birthday, Carlson had one year left on his contract. "After much thought and consideration, my wife Danielle and I know that this is best decision for us," Carlson said in a statement. He did not elaborate on his reasoning, but Carlson has a long and scary history of concussions. It was undoubtedly a factor in hanging up his cleats. Carlson retires with 210 catches for 2,256 yards and 15 touchdowns. He posted a 33/350/1 receiving line last season. The Cardinals have a crater at tight end.
May 5 - 1:44 PM

No Dolphins officials are meeting with LSU G/T La'El Collins on Tuesday, just players.

Per the Miami Herald, the Fins are "not ready at this time to send team officials." Reporter Barry Jackson does confirm the team is interested in Collins, but the fact that coaches and executives will not be present still suggests a certain level of skittishness. As of Tuesday afternoon, the Bills and Bucs appear to have the early lead for Collins' services.
May 5 - 1:41 PM

The Bucs will move Demar Dotson back to right tackle after they drafted Donovan Smith.

It's a pretty big surprise. Former basketball player Dotson (6'9/306) is a much better mover than Smith and excels in pass protection. Although Smith (6'6/338) projects as a plus run blocker with ideal tackle dimensions, his on-field skills are more reflective of a right tackle or even guard. It's good news the Bucs now at least have a few capable starting offensive linemen. Time will tell whether they're using those linemen at the right positions to protect Jameis Winston.
May 5 - 1:23 PM

The Cowboys did not remove Jay Ajayi from their draft board, and ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes they would have drafted Ajayi had he gotten past the Dolphins at No. 149 overall.

The Cowboys were next on the clock at No. 163 overall, where they drafted Purdue DE Ryan Russell. They selected Minnesota ILB Damien Wilson in the fourth round (127), ahead of Ajayi. Regardless, Archer writes that "Ajayi was one of their targets" in the draft, and "might have been an option for the Cowboys in the fifth round if they weren't beaten to the punch" by the Dolphins.
