The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports the Ravens have "considerable interest" in Western Michigan WR Corey Davis, and Davis is "one of their stronger options" at the No. 16 overall pick.

Wilson presently covers the Texans, but he wrote for the Carroll County Times and Baltimore Sun for many years on the Ravens' beat, so his reporting is noteworthy. The Ravens' wideout group is among the weakest in football with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman returning atop the depth chart. Davis has the best game film of any receiver in this draft. He played in the MAC, however, and did not work out before the draft due to ankle surgery.

Browns LT Joe Thomas said Wednesday that he is experiencing short-term memory loss, but he is "willing to accept" the risks of continuing his career.

Thomas has famously never missed an NFL snap and has no documented concussions in his history. "Short-term memory loss -- hard times remembering things that have happened recently," said Thomas, 32. "Like, you walk to the grocery store and you're like, 'Huh, I can't remember what I needed to get.'" Thomas said his hope is medicine will "continue to improve" to a point where he can be treated should he develop any sort of dementia related to football.

A league source told Profootballtalk.com that the "current buzz" is Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will slip into round three after he was accused of rape by a Cleveland woman this week.

It's better than not being drafted at all, of course, which became a distinct possibility when the allegations were made. Our takeaway from this report is that NFL teams are putting in time on Conley's situation and may be determining that they believe the allegations to be potentially false. Before being accused of the felony crime, Conley was a sure-fire first-round prospect.

Ravens re-signed WR Keenan Reynolds.

They also re-signed exclusive rights free agent OT De'Ondre Wesley and LB Brennen Beyer. Reynolds spent his entire rookie year on practice squad after getting waived at final cuts. He'll compete for a kick return role.

Marshawn Lynch's two-year deal with the Raiders has a max value of $16.5 million.

It's a lot of money for a 31-year-old who was out of the league last season. The deal is highly incentive laden but has a base of $9 million. Lynch's contract locks him in as Oakland's Week 1 starter.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette is "not sure the (Steelers') staff has any hopes" for Ladarius Green (concussions).

Along the same lines as conditionally-reinstated WR Martavis Bryant, the Steelers will likely view anything they get from Green this year as a bonus. Jesse James returns as Pittsburgh's primary in-line tight end, and Ben Roethlisberger has lobbied for a receiving option at the position. Bouchette indicated he expects the Steelers to draft a tight end, possibly on day two.

49ers WR Bruce Ellington has been sidelined at OTAs.

The 49ers' projected starter at slot receiver all last offseason, Ellington wound up missing 2016 with a torn hamstring. The 49ers traded for Jeremy Kerley just before the season and he led the team in receiving. Ellington is a cut candidate under the Niners' new regime.

49ers ILB Navorro Bowman (Achilles) was a full paritcipant in voluntary minicamp.

Bowman is only six months removed from tearing his Achilles. He was expected to be cleared for on-field drills but will likely be moved slowly through OTAs and remains questionable for training camp. The 49ers are planning on having Bowman for Week 1.

Falcons waived DT Jimmy Staten.

A 2014 fifth rounder, Staten has bounced around the league the last three years. Getting waived at this stage is a bad sign for his NFL future.

Saints GM Mickey Loomis said there hasn't been "any discussion for quite some time" on trading for Malcolm Butler.

The Saints haven't ruled out a Butler deal, but this falls in line with reports it's highly unlikely. With one of the deeper drafts for corners, the Saints are "leaning toward" keeping both their first round picks. Barring a late trade, Butler should play out the final year of his Patriots contract.

Packers signed RG Jahri Evans, formerly of the Saints.

The Packers have a gaping hole at right guard after losing T.J. Lang. Don Barclay was penciled in, but he's been brutal in past starting chances. Evans, 34, offers short-term security. Green Bay would be wise to draft help. Evans started all 16 games last season and made 169 career starts for New Orleans.

Ohio State CB Gareon Conley released a statement calling the rape allegations against him "untrue, wrongful, and malicious."

"The allegations ... are completely false," Conley said. "I did not commit a crime and have not been charged with a crime. I pride myself on doing things the right way on and off the field. The things being said about me and what happened that night are not true and don't fit my character at all. I realize that I put himself in the situation and I could have used better judgment. However, I have worked tirelessly to put myself in position to have the honor of being an NFL draft pick and these untrue allegations are putting a huge cloud over my name. These allegations appear to be an attempt to ruin this once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and my family. There were several witnesses including another female, who were present the entire time and have given statements that give an accurate account of what took place." The entire statement can be read at the below link.

49ers DL Arik Armstead underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum.

The No. 17 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Armstead said he's fully recovered now and has been bouncing all over the 49ers' defensive line in their new 4-3 front. He's also been getting reps at the "Leo" spot as a pass rusher off the edge. Listed at 6'7/292, the 49ers will likely want him playing lighter in 2017.

Updating a previous item, Teddy Bridgewater's (knee) contract would toll to 2018 if he spends all of this season on reserve/PUP.

With this information, it makes all the sense in the world for the Vikings to stash Bridgewater on PUP, let him rehab, and then revisit the situation in 2018 when Sam Bradford is scheduled to be a free agent. A lot will happen between now and then, but it sounds like Bridgewater won't hit free agency next March.
Apr 26 - 3:07 PM

Free agent LB Dan Skuta is visiting the Patriots on Wednesday.

Skuta, 31, was released by the Jaguars earlier this month, and this is his first known interest. He never became more than a bit player on Jacksonville's defense and is likely looking for special teams work at this stage.
