Lions GM Bob Quinn said the door remains "open" for free agent Anquan Boldin.

"We’ve had some communication with Anquan," said Quinn. "That was back in I’d say March, so really no update on our end of things." The 36-year-old is coming off another solid season that included 67 catches, 584 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. Boldin may opt to skip offseason work by signing closer to the start of training camp, which is what he did last year. The 14-year veteran said he has no plans to retire.

Cardinals signed Marian WR Krishawn Hogan.

Hogan (6’3/222) wound up in the NAIA ranks after catching only 20 passes as a 5-foot-9, 175-pound backup receiver in high school. At barely-known Marian College, Hogan exploded physically and on the field, setting school records in receptions (263), yards (4,395), and touchdowns (42) as a three-year starter. Hogan confirmed his NFL-level athleticism at the Combine, registering 79th-percentile SPARQ results with 4.56 speed, a springy 10-foot-4 broad jump, and a 6.74 three-cone time, sensational at Hogan’s size. Hogan faces a colossal jump in competition, but from a size-athletic standpoint the big leagues contain his peers.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, it's "very possible if not probable" the Bills will replace GM Doug Whaley.

As detailed in a report by Joe Buscaglia of WKBW Buffalo, La Canfora is hearing that Whaley is on thin ice and could soon be replaced by Panthers assistant GM Brandon Beane. The Ringer's Michael Lombardi made a similar claim earlier this week when he said that new coach Sean McDermott "is making all the moves in Buffalo." Per La Canfora, a decision on Whaley's future in Buffalo could come as soon as Sunday morning. Stay tuned.

Bears signed Mississippi State LB Richie Brown.

Brown (6’2/237) was a two-year starter as the Bulldogs’ middle linebacker, leading the team in tackles as a junior and senior and tallying 21 career tackles for loss along with ten sacks and five interceptions. Not invited to February’s Combine, Brown helped himself with a 4.63 forty, 37-inch vertical, and 6.75 three-cone time at Mississippi State’s Pro Day. Brown’s initial NFL ticket will be on special teams, where he saw extensive action as a freshman and sophomore.

Jets signed Villanova LB Austin Calitro.

Calitro (6’1/239) was a two-year starter as the Wildcats’ middle linebacker, tallying 26 career tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles and earning first-team All-Colonial Athletic Conference recognition as a senior. Not invited to the Combine, Calitro showed moderate athleticism at Villanova’s Pro Day with 4.67 speed, a 34-inch vertical, and a 6.96 three-cone time. A short, stocky thumper from a small school, Calitro faces an uphill NFL climb that will almost certainly have to begin on special teams.
Apr 29 - 9:26 PM

49ers signed Baylor WR KD Cannon.

Cannon (5’11/182) started all three years at Baylor before turning pro, leaving school with a career 195-3,113-27 (16.0 YPR) receiving line and earning first-team All-Big 12 from the conference’s coaches as a junior. While Cannon won with blazing speed (4.41) in the Bears’ wide-open spread, he is a chronic body catcher and one-trick lid lifter whose tape lacks nuance and any hint of physicality. He also showed unreliable hands, dropping nine passes in 2016. PFF College compared Cannon to Travis Benjamin, which is probably his ceiling.
Apr 29 - 9:14 PM

Giants signed Florida State WR Travis Rudolph.

Rudolph (6’0/189) arrived at FSU as a ballyhooed five-star recruit and started all three years, tallying a career 153-2,311-18 (15.1 YPR) receiving line and earning second-team All-ACC as a 2016 junior before turning pro. Rudolph proceeded to turn in a putrid Combine workout, running 4.65 and testing as a third-percentile athlete. Rudolph is a plus route runner and catches the ball cleanly with his hands, but he lacks standout traits and looked like just another guy in the ACC. He’s a small, low-ceiling possession-receiver prospect.
Apr 29 - 9:11 PM

Bears signed Florida International OT Dieugot Joseph.

Joseph (6’6/293) made 34 starts at left tackle for the FIU Panthers, managing honorable mention all-conference in the C-USA as a senior. Joseph’s primary strength is his length at a lean 6-foot-6 with absurd arm length (35 5/8"), but he tested as a 14th-percentile athlete before the draft and needs a ton of weight-room and technical work. It would be a surprise if Joseph lasted particularly long in the pros.
Apr 29 - 9:04 PM

Jaguars signed Illinois DE Carroll Phillips.

Phillips (6’3/242) spent just 1-of-3 seasons as a starter at Illinois, breaking out in 2016 for 20 tackles for loss and nine sacks, but only earning honorable mention All-Big Ten from the conference’s coaches. A 25-year-old rookie who bounced between three colleges and managed a 10 Wonderlic score, Phillips is undersized with off-field flags. He tested as an adequate, 47th-percentile athlete in Indy, running 4.66 with a solid 7.06 three-cone time. A low-ceiling situational pass-rusher project, Phillips would do well to carve out a Mario Addison-like career.
Apr 29 - 9:00 PM

Texans signed Missouri State LB Dylan Cole.

Cole (6’1/239) was a first-team All-American in the FCS as a senior, leading the sub-Division-1 ranks in tackles per game (12.9) and finishing his career with a whopping 40.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions, and five sacks. Snubbed for a Combine invite, Cole blew up the Missouri State Pro Day to post the highest SPARQ score among all off-ball linebackers in this class. Cole is an intriguing sleeper who will likely start out on special teams and offers potential as a versatile inside-outside linebacker prospect down the line.
Apr 29 - 8:54 PM

Bears declined CB Kyle Fuller's fifth-year option for 2018.

Fuller spent all of last year on injured reserve and now faces competition from free agent signings Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper. Even when he's been healthy, Fuller has never lived up to the lofty expectations that were placed on him as a first-round pick in 2014. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune opined that Fuller may not even make the Bears' final roster this summer. The 25-year-old will earn just over $1.7 million in the final year of his rookie contract.
Apr 29 - 8:50 PM

Broncos signed Virginia Tech DE Ken Ekanem.

Ekanem (6’3/257) made 39 starts for Virginia Tech, piling up 34 career tackles for loss with 21.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He was an honorable mention All-ACC pick as a senior. While Ekanem was a productive college edge defender, he lacks exceptional traits and is ultimately a tweener missing the required edge burst of a 3-4 outside rusher and physical makeup of a 4-3 base end. He’ll likely have to shine on special teams to hold onto an NFL roster spot.
Apr 29 - 8:41 PM

Patriots signed Northwestern WR Austin Carr.

Carr (6’0/202) struggled for playing time at Northwestern before breaking out as a fifth-year senior, amassing an 84-1,196-12 (14.2 YPR) receiving line en route to Big Ten Receiver of the Year and third-team All-America honors. PFF College called Carr the best slot receiver in the nation in 2016, yet he was snubbed for a Combine invite. While it is concerning that Carr runs 4.62 and didn’t do much of anything until age 23 – when every defensive back he faced was younger than him – Carr has many traits that translate to slot success in the pros, including an impressive 6.70 three-cone time. From a profile standpoint, he reminds of ex-Colts WR Austin Collie.
Apr 29 - 8:38 PM

Browns signed Michigan CB Channing Stribling.

Stribling (6’1/188) made 18 starts in four years as a Wolverine, breaking out as a senior boundary corner for team highs in pass breakups (17) and interceptions (4) en route to second-team All-Big Ten honors. PFF College charted Stribling with an anemic 22.7 passer rating and one touchdown pass allowed in 2016. Stribling proceeded to bomb the Combine, running 4.60 and posting sub-1st-percentile SPARQ results. Stribling was a non-factor in run defense at Michigan and managed five bench-press reps in Indy. He’s a good college player who doesn’t profile as an NFL corner.
Apr 29 - 8:36 PM

Broncos GM John Elway said fifth-round TE Jake Butt (knee) could be cleared in August or early September.

Coach Vance Joseph acknowledged that Butt probably would have gone in the top two rounds if not for his torn ACL. Butt is about four months removed from the injury and should be at close to full strength by the end of training camp. The 21-year-old could open on the PUP list, but we should see him at some point in 2017.
