Rams second-year WR Josh Reynolds underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum.

He suffered the injury on special teams in the fourth quarter of the Wild Card loss to the Falcons in January. It's fair to wonder if Reynolds will even be ready for the start of training camp. The sophomore was talked about as a potential fantasy sleeper after the Rams failed to re-sign Sammy Watkins, but L.A. later traded for Brandin Cooks. Reynolds will again be the No. 4 wideout.

Giants signed WR Russell Shepard, formerly of the Panthers.

Shepard links back up with GM Dave Gettleman, who handed Shepard a three-year, $10 million deal last offseason before he was fired by the Panthers. Shepard brought nothing to the table as a receiver in Carolina but remains an effective special teams player. He'll compete for a job this summer.

Rams fifth-round OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo recently underwent foot surgery and will be sidelined until training camp.

Okoronkwo tumbled to the fifth round where the Rams traded up with the Broncos to take him at No. 160 overall. At 6'2/253, Okoronkwo won Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the Big 12 last season and is a plus athlete at his position. He enters an EDGE spot in L.A. where the Rams are in an overhaul, replacing 2017 starters Robert Quinn and Connor Barwin. Okoronkwo missing important practice time this summer lessens his chances of making an early impact.

Franchise player Le'Veon Bell will not report for the start of Steelers' OTAs on Tuesday.

OTAs are voluntary, so Bell has every right not to attend. This also comes as no surprise whatsoever with Bell remaining without a long-term deal and franchise-tagged for the second consecutive year. Bell skipped all of OTAs, minicamp, and training camp last year while on the tag before reporting in September.

The New Orleans Advocate expects Alvin Kamara to handle 14-15 carries per game during Mark Ingram's four-week suspension.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported after Ingram's ban was announced that the Saints planned to feature Kamara more this season, anyway. Kamara caught 81 passes as a rookie but averaged only 7.5 carries per game, a number that has lots of room for sophomore growth. Kamara is squarely in the conversation as a top-five overall re-draft pick. Ingram has lost quite a bit of fantasy luster.

Free agent OG Richie Incognito informed the Bills he will not retire before they granted his release on Monday.

Some teams in the Bills' position wouldn't budge after feeling a player turned his back on them, but Buffalo quickly allowed Incognito to move on and begin engaging other teams. Although he's a short-term fix going on age 35, Incognito is plenty capable of helping a team at guard. The Ravens with ex-Bills OC Greg Roman make sense. The Bengals could also use another upgrade inside.

Cardinals released CB Marcus Williams.

He lasted just a month on the roster, ostensibly becoming expendable when the Cardinals traded for Jamar Taylor. Williams, 27, intercepted six passes for the Jets in 2015, but his career has trended downward ever since. It's not a great sign that still-cornerback-needy Arizona gave up on him so quickly.

Bills released OG Richie Incognito.

Incognito retired last month, but he reportedly flirted with the idea of reporting to the Bills' offseason program, and has now been granted his release. Incognito turns 35 before the season, but he has continued to play at a high level. He was PFF's No. 12 overall guard in 2017 and No. 7 in pass blocking. If his heart is still in it, Incognito should not struggle to land a starting job.

Raiders signed third-round OT Brandon Parker to a four-year contract.

Third-rounder Arden Key is Oakland's lone remaining unsigned draft pick. The Raiders traded up for Parker at No. 65 overall and intend to mold him into their right tackle of the future under new OL coach Tom Cable. They hope No. 15 overall pick Kolton Miller can lock down Derek Carr's bind side long term.

Raiders signed fourth-round CB Nick Nelson to a four-year contract.

Nelson (5’11/200) turned pro as a redshirt junior after starting his first two years at Hawaii and final season in Madison, where Nelson led the nation in pass breakups (21) and earned first-team All-Big Ten. Nelson never posted an interception in his college career, however, and ran 4.52 at the Combine. He then tore his meniscus during a pre-draft private workout with the Lions. Nelson is a candidate to "redshirt" his rookie year.

Jaguars.com confirms LB Myles Jack is moving to the middle in the team's base defense.

Jack manned the middle in nickel situations last season. He's getting all three downs following the retirement of Paul Posluszny. Healthy in 2017 after a college knee issue slowed him as a rookie, Jack had the looks of a legitimate playmaker. Still only 23 (in September), Jack could explode as he moves to the middle and further away from his 2015 injury.

The Jaguars' official website believes Donte Moncrief is penciled in as a starter.

Moncrief's fully guaranteed $9.6 million salary for 2018 suggested as much, but the Jags' receiver corps is crowded. Marqise Lee will start, while Keelan Cole was impressive as a rookie and D.J. Chark is a second-round investment. Second-year pro Dede Westbrook also flashed promise as a rookie. Moncrief was something of an underachiever with the Colts. He could leave the door open for competition in camp.

Jets signed fourth-round TE Chris Herndon to a four-year contract.

Per PFF College, Herndon caught 35-of-43 slot targets in 2017, leading all college tight ends with an 81.4% catch rate when targeted inside. Herndon tore his MCL in Miami’s regular-season finale and was unable to test before the draft. An adequate blocker and good enough athlete for an H-back role, Herndon offers some Charles Clay-like traits as a catch-first tight end. The Jets have one of the weakest tight-end corps in the league, so Herndon could get a chance to contribute early. He's still completing his recovery from his college knee injury.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports neither the Lions nor coach Matt Patricia will be subject to discipline following the resurfacing of a 1996 sexual assault allegation against Patricia.

The league met with the Lions and Patricia last week and decided the team "engaged in appropriate and thorough hiring practices." It also concluded Patricia did not "mislead the team during the interview process." Patricia was indicted for aggravated sexual assault by a Texas grand jury, but the case was dismissed before trial after the alleged victim decided not to testify. The episode was apparently unknown to the NFL before the Detroit News reported its existence two weeks ago. Patricia has strenuously maintained his innocence.

Bengals signed No. 21 overall pick C Billy Price to a four-year contract.

Price moved from guard to center as a senior at Ohio State and dominated there, winning with strength and explosiveness off the snap. An intense competitor with four years of high-level performance on film, Price is about as "pro ready" with a "high floor" as college offensive linemen get. Price is currently recovering from a torn pec suffered at the Combine but is expected to be ready for Week 1.
