Florida WR Antonio Callaway failed his Combine drug test, testing positive for marijuana with a "diluted sample."

Callaway claims he was "over-hydrated," and that he will address the issue with teams. Callaway dealt with a litany of off-the-field issues as a Gator, and was suspended for his entire junior season. Callaway had a strong Combine but has forced himself into Day 3 flier territory.

Rob Gronkowski announced in a Tuesday social media post that he will return for the 2018 season.

"I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats," Gronk posted on Instagram, under his @gronk handle. "I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great." The fact that Gronkowski met with coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday to inform him of his intentions confirms he was seriously considering stepping away. Although Gronk is still only 29 (next month), he has dealt with a litany of serious injuries during his eight seasons in the NFL. At this point, he should be considered a year-to-year proposition going forward, something to be mindful of in Dynasty leagues.

Speaking Tuesday, Saints coach Sean Payton said Cameron Meredith (ACL) could get in some work in June's minicamp.

Payton said the ex-Bear is "recovering well." Meredith went down at the end of last preseason. Any minicamp work would probably be cosmetic but would set Meredith up to be a full participant in training camp.

NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports Teddy Bridgewater won't be guaranteed a spot on the Jets' 53-man roster if they select a quarterback at No. 3 overall on Thursday evening.

It goes without saying Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty will be candidates for release. Bridgewater's shaky position was telegraphed by the fact that he landed just $500,000 guaranteed — his signing bonus — in free agency. The Jets' quarterback room probably wouldn't be big enough for the three of Bridgewater, Josh McCown and a highly-touted rookie. Bridgewater can't worry about that now, and has to prove he is healthy before anything else.

NC State DE Kentavius Street underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL on Thursday.

Street was injured three weeks ago working out for the Giants. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport claims Street could still be drafted, but UDFA is the most likely scenario. A good outcome for the 22-year-old (in May) prospect would be redshirting in 2018.

Dolphins exercised WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year team option for 2019.

This wasn't as clear cut in Parker's case as some other 2015 first-rounders, but always seemed more likely than not. The enigmatic fourth-year pro will now be due $9.4 million in 2019. That, of course, is guaranteed for injury only. Provided he can pass a physical at the start of the new league year, the Dolphins could move on from Parker without penalty if he struggles through another injury-prone and inconsistent campaign.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport considers the Cardinals a "team to watch" when it comes to trading up for a quarterback.

Per Rapsheet, the Birds are "making a lot of noise about moving up." GM Steve Keim has spoke of the (obvious) need to find a franchise quarterback. The Cardinals, who are picking at No. 15, have average draft ammunition, with nine total picks, three of which are in the top 79. Moving up to the No. 5 or 6 spot might be too prohibitive, but Rotoworld's Josh Norris has the Cardinals landing UCLA's Josh Rosen at No. 10 in his latest mock draft.

Paul Perkins is dealing with a pectoral injury and was spotted with his left arm in a sling at Giants minicamp.

Perkins apparently suffered the injury training on his own. It's unclear how long he might be sidelined, though pectoral injuries can be 6-8 month affairs. Coming off a disappointing, injury-marred sophomore campaign, Perkins was already behind the eight ball when it came to earning 2018 work.

Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hinted the team is not open to re-signing free agent Dez Bryant at a lower price.

Bryant believes Jones was not the driving force behind his release, but it's evident the bridge has been burned, at least for the time being. Bryant has drawn rumored interest but has yet to make a visit.

Rams exercised CB Marcus Peters' fifth-year team option for 2019.

It's a no-brainer, though the option is not without risk in Peters' case. There's a reason the prodigiously-talented 25-year-old was traded. Nevertheless, it's guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Rams could still cut Peters without penalty at the beginning of the next league year, provided he can pass a physical. Almost certainly, that will not happen, and Peters will be spending the next two years in Los Angeles.

Rams exercised RB Todd Gurley's fifth-year team option for 2019.

After contending for the league's MVP award last season, Gurley is now set to make roughly $9.63 million in what will be the final year of his rookie contract in 2019. A prodigious talent freed from Jeff Fisher's anti-offense, 24-year-old (in August) Gurley should have another monster campaign in 2018.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) is not throwing at veteran minicamp.

"Not even to play catch during warmups," were the words of reporter George Bremer. It's hardly a surprise — GM Chris Ballard said four days ago Luck wasn't throwing — but is still notable. Luck hasn't thrown a live pass — exhibition or otherwise — since Jan. 1, 2017, which was 478 days ago. He turned 28 in the interim and turns 29 in September.

Panthers GM Marty Hurney said the team has talked to free agent QB Derek Anderson about re-signing.

The Panthers do not have any proven backup options behind Cam Newton on the depth chart. Even if they draft a developmental prospect this weekend, they could use a veteran safety blanket in the No. 2 spot, a role Anderson has filled since 2011. It would not be surprising to see him re-sign after the draft.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Odell Beckham will "absolutely" be with the team in 2018.

Everything suggests the Giants had real discussions about moving Beckham this offseason, but that possibility was all but put to bed when the Rams traded for Brandin Cooks. There has not been any indication the two sides have made progress on a long-term contract, but Beckham has shown good faith by reporting for the voluntary portions of the offseason program.

Colts released RB George Winn with a failed physical designation.

Winn spent last season on injured reserve, and he apparently is still not ready to go. He will try to latch on somewhere as a camp body once he is healthy.
