Free agent RB Rashad Jennings won the 24th season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

Released by the Giants in February, Jennings has been focused on the dancing show. He and his professional dancing partner, Emma Slater, are the fourth duo featuring an NFL player to win the show, joining Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, and Donald Driver. Jennings turned 32 earlier this spring and hasn't been linked to a single NFL team. Maybe that will change now that he has time.

Packers CB Quinten Rollins underwent offseason groin surgery.

Rollins dealt with the injury for much of last year and decided to visit renowned specialist Dr. William Meyers shortly after the season to get a fix. He opened OTAs with no restrictions, but it's worth noting nonetheless. Rollins will be part of the battle for snaps at corner in Green Bay, along with Damarious Randall, Davon House, Ladarius Gunter, and second-rounder Kevin King.

Retired WR Calvin Johnson was present at the opening of Raiders OTAs on Tuesday as a guest instructor.

New Raiders OC Todd Downing was a Lions assistant for half a decade when Megatron was also in Detroit, so Downing invited him out to allow the Raiders' receivers to pick his brain. Johnson continues to reiterate he has no plans to come out of retirement. As the Lions own his rights still, it would obviously have to happen in Detroit. Johnson now works with draft-eligible wideouts.

Colts SS Clayton Geathers (neck) is uncertain for Week 1.

It was revealed last week that Geathers underwent neck surgery, but the nature of it wasn't clear. We now know Geathers was dealing with a bulging disc in his neck that required a "last resort" surgery. "I believe in a higher power, and I just pray about it," Geathers said. "Everything will work out." Neck issues are never a certainty to heal, so this is definitely a big concern for the Colts. Geathers was one of the few bright spots on Indy's defense last year as a big-hitting maven against the run. 2016 second-rounder T.J. Green and first-round rookie Malik Hooker opened OTAs as the Colts' starting safeties.

Jeremy Maclin admits his 2016 "wasn’t up to my standards."

"I just … I didn’t play as well as I could have," Maclin said, admitting the obvious. "And by not playing well, I feel like I let my team down. And that’s the most important part of it." Maclin was slowed by a groin injury for much of the season. Still only 29, there's no reason Maclin can't physically bounce back, though Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill will be major stumbling blocks on the way to a 1,000-yard campaign. Maclin is best treated as a WR4/5 in fantasy.

New Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller says he feels the best he has in years.

The way Spiller tells it, he's never been right physically since he left the Bills after the 2014 season. That was certainly borne out by his usage with the Saints, Seahawks and Jets. Going on 30, the formerly-dynamic talent is most realistically competing with Charcandrick West for No. 3 duties in Kansas City.
May 23 - 7:15 PM

The Kansas City Star reports third-round Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has "already impressed with his short-area burst and balance."

Reporter Terez Paylor's observation comes four days after ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher predicted Hunt would both lead the Chiefs in rushing and lead the backfield in receptions. Hunt has a legitimate stumbling block in Spencer Ware, but the highest back ever drafted by Andy Reid in Kansas City, he's going to get a chance to make his mark as a rookie.

Bucs signed fifth-round RB Jeremy McNichols and third-round S Kendell Beckwith to four-year contracts.

Recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum, McNichols is targeting training camp for his NFL practice debut. A third-down type, McNichols figures to spend his rookie season buried on the depth chart. He'll need to show well on special teams in training camp.
May 23 - 6:39 PM

Jets signed second-round S Marcus Maye and fifth-round LB Dylan Donahue to four-year contracts.

The No. 39 overall pick of the draft, Maye should be paired with first-rounder Jamal Adams, and likely make Calvin Pryor expendable. A true playmaker at Florida, Maye occasionally lined up in the slot, and contributed on special teams. He should see plenty of rookie snaps.
May 23 - 6:27 PM

Steelers S Sean Davis is recovering from shoulder surgery, but is expected to be "100 percent" for training camp.

The swiss-army knife defensive back played 742 snaps as a rookie, primarily at strong safety. He was an every-down player down the stretch, including the postseason. Strong safety should remain Davis' home for 2017.
May 23 - 6:22 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (left knee) took snaps and threw passes at Tuesday's OTAs session.

In a video released by the team, Bridgewater was dropping back with his surgically-repaired knee sheathed in a long brace. Speaking earlier this month, coach Mike Zimmer said he was feeling "more optimistic" about Bridgewater's recovery, but cautioned he still had a "long way to go." At best, Bridgewater is questionable to back up Sam Bradford in Week 1. The reserve/PUP list remains the most likely possibility.

The Chicago Tribune considers Kevin White's (leg) progress a "mystery."

Mike Glennon and coach John Fox both had positive things to say about White on Tuesday, but offered nothing in the way of specifics. Fox said earlier this month that White "looks very healthy." The oft-injured wideout is getting in at least some degree of participation in OTAs. The No. 7 overall pick of the 2015 draft, White has missed 28-of-32 games.
May 23 - 5:57 PM

Seahawks signed third-round WR Amara Darboh to a four-year contract.

Productive at Michigan, Darboh is old for a prospect (23), and doesn't play as fast as his 4.45 speed. He can be a body catcher. It's also a crowded receiver corps in Seattle. Darboh's game was greater than the sum of its parts in the Big Ten, but it could be a while before he makes an NFL impact.
May 23 - 5:52 PM

Rob Gronkowski has agreed to a restructured contract.

Underpaid at $5.25 million, Gronk has cut a deal full of incentive-laden raises. At the highest level, Gronk's salary will more than double to $10.75 million if he plays 90 percent of the Patriots' snaps, catches 80 passes, goes for 1,200 yards or makes the All-Pro team. It's a compromise that gives Gronk a shot at a much-larger payday, but only if he's able to stay on the field and produce. It's unique for Gronk because he does not have to give anything up in exchange for the incentives. It does not appear to alter the final two years of Gronk's contract, which are currently set to pay him $8 million and $9 million, respectively.
May 23 - 5:47 PM

ESPN New York believes Jets S Calvin Pryor might be a candidate for release.

Pryor is skipping voluntary OTAs, and coach Todd Bowles said he didn't want to discuss Pryor's absence. The Jets clearly do not have Pryor in their long-term plans after they spent first- and second-round picks on safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. The Jets also declined Pryor's fifth-year option.
