ESPN's John Keim does not believe WR Andre Roberts will remain on the Redskins' roster "for long."

Roberts caught just 11 passes for 135 yards last season. He was already on the bubble before the draft, and the selection of Josh Doctson in the first round all but sealed his fate. The Redskins can save $4 million against the cap by designating him a post-June 1 cut.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys WLB Sean Lee underwent a "clean-up scope" on his knee this week.

The surgery carries a two-week recovery. Lee should not be limited much if at all in the offseason program, but it is another reminder of his extensive injury history. With Lee on the weak side, Rolando McClain in the middle and second-round pick Jaylon Smith (knee) on the sideline, the Cowboys have a high-upside but low-floor linebacking group.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed Trent Murphy will play defensive end this season.

This was expected after Murphy worked exclusively with the defensive line at voluntary workouts. An outside linebacker since being taken in the second round of the 2014 draft, Murphy will slide down to perhaps his better fit as a 3-4 end. Even with Murphy making the switch, the Skins need to more bodies on the defensive line. Murphy will be a run-stuffing role player on the line.

Redskins second-round pick Su'a Cravens said the team views him as a dime linebacker.

"That’s a spot where I can fit right in the defense," Cravens added. A hybrid safety-linebacker, Cravens is a great fit in sub packages and could eventually develop into a box safety in base sets. Cravens said he models his game after Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team envisions third-round RB C.J. Prosise as a passing-down back.

"I’m really thinking that’s going to be a big part of what he adds to the offense," Carroll said. "There’s no reason he can’t be a first-down back, too. We just know what we’re going to attempt to do with him on third down." Both Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael struggle in the passing game. Prosise has the upside to be more than a third-down guy, but his role will likely be limited early in his career. Fred Jackson had 58 touches in a similar role last year.

49ers GM Trent Baalke expects third-round CB Will Redmond (ACL) to be ready for training camp

It would not be a draft if the 49ers did not take a player with a knee injury, and Redmond fills the quota this year after tearing his right ACL in October. "We're very comfortable with where he's at and very comfortable that he'll be ready to go come training camp," Baalke said. Redmond should be healthy enough to play this year, but he might need some seasoning before he is ready to contribute.

Bears GM Ryan Pace said the team views third-round pick Jonathan Bullard as a 3-4 defensive end.

Bullard often played as a three-technique defensive tackle at Florida, so he should be able to transition fairly easily to the five-tech for Chicago. An interior disruptor with a quick first step, Bullard should help apply pressure both in base sets and in sub packages. He was a great upside pick in the third round.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson believes LG Matt Slauson's roster spot could be in danger.

The Bears signed OG Ted Larsen and G/C Manny Ramirez before drafting OG Cody Whitehair in the second round. Still a quality starter at 30, the Bears should not be quick to discard Slauson. He's a value at his $2.85 million salary.

Jerry Jones said the Cowboys will not re-sign free agent DE Greg Hardy.

It never looked like Hardy would be back with Dallas, but Jones has now made it official. Hardy has not received an ounce of interest on the open market. That could change as we get closer to training camp, but it remains possible Hardy is out of the league this year.

Coach Todd Bowles said Friday that Geno Smith will enter OTAs as the Jets' starting quarterback.

The Jets haven't made progress with disgruntled free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick, while GM Mike Maccagnan has failed to deal franchise-tagged DE Muhammad Wilkerson, preventing Gang Green from clearing salary cap space. At present, Geno is the Jets' best and only option. "Geno is first team," Bowles said. "We're still working to get Fitzpatrick back. Geno will go into OTAs as the starter." Smith, 25, has a 57.9 percent completion rate and 27:35 TD-to-INT ratio through 31 career appearances (29 starts).

The Chargers expect No. 66 pick Max Tuerk to compete for their starting center job.

Tuerk tore his ACL five games into his senior season, but he's been running and has "no limitations" in the weight room. It sounds like he'll be ready for training camp. Tuerk started 38 games for the USC Trojans, with 13 coming at center. When healthy, Tuerk will compete with Chris Watt for the starting job.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wouldn't "completely rule out" second-round OLB Jaylon Smith (knee surgery) playing in 2016.

The Cowboys know Smith's status as well as anyone in football, as it was their team doctor that performed Smith's surgery in January. Despite ol' Jer's open door for 2016, however, the odds are against Smith taking the field during his rookie season. Smith comes with an unbelievably high ceiling, but his floor has been drastically lowered by his severe injury. Smith turns 21 in June.

Broncos selected Boston College S Justin Simmons with the No. 98 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Simmons (6'2/202) was a 32-game starter at B.C., seeing action at both corner and safety and finishing his career with eight interceptions and four forced fumbles. Simmons helped himself in Indy, running a mediocre 4.61 forty but shining in the vertical (40") and broad (10'6") jumps as well as agility tests. Simmons' best NFL position will be free safety. A plus tackler with center-field range, Simmons has some similarities to Bengals FS George Iloka.

Seahawks selected Boise State OG Rees Odhiambo with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Odhiambo (6'4/314) made 25 starts for the Broncos, manning the blind side and earning first-team All-Mountain West as a senior. That was despite fracturing his ankle eight games into the 2015 season. Injury riddled, Odhiambo never played a full season at Boise State. When healthy, Odhiambo is a heavy-handed power player whose game may fit best inside in the NFL. Odhiambo's poor Pro Day numbers suggest he's still in the recovery process.
Apr 29 - 11:15 PM

Patriots selected Nebraska DL Vincent Valentine with the No. 96 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Valentine (6'4/329) left Nebraska as a redshirt junior after making 24 starts, tallying 16 career tackles for loss, seven sacks, and a forced fumble. He showed plus length and athleticism at the Combine, but managed 17 bench-press reps and needs to get stronger. Valentine struggled with conditioning in college and missed time with a high ankle sprain last year, but he's a project worth trying to develop. Long term, Valentine offers rotational nose tackle potential.
