Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott (ankle) is on track to participate in training camp this summer. 

15 May 2021

"Yeah. I have no reason not to think that," McCarthy said when asked whether Prescott would join the team for training camp in July. McCarthy said Dak has had "excellent workouts" over the past couple weeks. Coming off a nightmarish ankle injury last fall, Prescott's health and availability is worth monitoring in the coming months, but it appears he'll be back under center for Dallas to start the 2021 season. 

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said the team wants Aaron Rodgers back "in the worst way." 

15 May 2021

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the two sides will continue to work out their many differences. Packers coaches and front office officials have made no secret of their desire to have Rodgers return for his 13th year as the team's starter. If the team is going to move Rodgers, 37, it will happen after June 1. The Broncos are reportedly interested in acquiring him for what would probably be a king's ransom. The Packers this week signed Blake Bortles in case the worst comes to pass and the team ...

Texans head coach David Culley said rookie WR Nico Collins is the "prototype wide receiver." 

15 May 2021

Culley added that Collins, 22, is a "big, strong, 50-50 catch guy. Very tough kid." He's not wrong. Collins (6'4/215), a third round pick, turned down offers to Alabama, Georgia, and LSU to follow Jim Harbaugh to Michigan, recording only one career 100-yard game due to the team's horrendous quarterback play. He still managed 17.8 yards per catch at Michigan -- no easy feat. Collins impressed at his pro day, registering a 89th percentile speed score, a 77th percentile burst score, ...

Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said the team is being "very cautious" with Trevor Lawrence (shoulder). 

15 May 2021

Lawrence, who had surgery on his non-throwing left shoulder in February, is on a 30-40 throw pitch count during rookie camp, Meyer said. The No. 1 pick in the 2021 draft is expected to be ready for training camp, barring a setback in his recovery. 

Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said RB Travis Etienne is working mostly as a receiver in rookie camp. 

15 May 2021

It's officially the time of year where every running back is also a wideout. Meyer said the team has faith in Etienne's rushing abilities, but the “best case scenario” is that he could be used as both a runner and a pass catcher in Jacksonville's offense. Meyer hinted Etienne could continue to work as a wideout in training camp. The 25th pick in the NFL Draft, Etienne -- who Meyer refers to as "slash" -- is set as the team's primary pass-catching back with a clear path to some or most of the ...

Browns rookie LB Tony Fields (foot) will be sidelined “several weeks.”

15 May 2021

Coach Kevin Stefanski said it’s “not a long-term injury.” Fields doesn’t need surgery, but he’ll be moved slowly. The rookie fifth-rounder should be 100 percent for training camp.

Vikings signed fourth-round RB Kene Nwangwu to a four-year contract.

15 May 2021

One of the top kick returners in the nation, Nwangwu ended his career with a school record 26.8 return average.   He was stuck behind David Montgomery and Breece Hall at Iowa, but the Vikings think there's untapped potential to him as a rusher.  Nwangwu will open his rookie year as the No. 3 back behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison. 

ESPN's Sarah Barshop reports a member of Tony Buzbee’s legal team has approached Deshaun Watson to discuss "working things out."

15 May 2021

It's the first signs of a potential settlement for Watson. The plaintiff side initiating talks also suggests there's some concern about the case. With training camp two months away, Watson should be motivated to settle, though his playing status will still be subject to an NFL investigation. The NFL has interviewed four of the 22 women with lawsuits against Watson. Even if his legal issues are resolved, Watson is likely to be suspended for some or all of 2021 under the league's pe ...

Chargers signed sixth-round RB Larry Rountree to a four-year contract. 

15 May 2021

Rountree was a four-year contributor at Missouri, finishing his career behind only Brad Smith with 3,720 yards (5.0 per carry) and 40 touchdowns. He joins a crowded backfield with the Chargers, where he'll compete for a roster spot as the No. 4 running back. Rountree has a similar profile to both Joshua Kelley and contract-year RB Justin Jackson, who he'll likely replace in 2022. The Chargers also signed fifth-round OG Brenden Jaimes, sixth-round LB Nick N ...

Packers signed sixth-round LB Isaiah McDuffie to a four-year contract. 

15 May 2021

McDuffie, a three-star recruit from Buffalo, led Boston College and ranked fifth in the nation with 107 tackles in a breakout junior year.  He joins sixth-round OL Cole Van Lanen, seventh-round RB Kylin Hill, and fifth-rounders Shemar Jean-Charles and T.J. Slaton as Day 3 picks to sign with the Packers. McDuffie slots in at a $3.6 million salary with a $130K signing bonus on his rookie deal.

Rams signed second-round WR Tutu Atwell to a four-year contract.

14 May 2021

The undersized Atwell led the ACC in receiving yards (1,276) and touchdowns (12) in 2019, following it up with a 46/635/7 line in an injury-shortened junior year. He gives the Rams a deep threat with 4.39 speed behind Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and Van Jefferson. Atwell's biggest concerns are his size and durability after his Combine weigh-in at 149 pounds. The Rams should use Atwell situationally as a rookie.

Patriots signed fifth-round LB Cameron McGrone to a four-year contract. 

14 May 2021

McGrone tore his ACL in November. He'll be 10 months removed from surgery for Week 1, but coach Bill Belichick said the team isn't counting on having him available this year. The Patriots may redshirt McGrone as a rookie before letting him compete for a role in 2022.

Broncos released RT Ja'Wuan James.

14 May 2021

The move comes after the Broncos signed free agent OTs Cameron Fleming and Bobby Massie. James was set to spend most of 2021 on the NFI list after tearing his Achilles working out away from the team earlier this month. The Broncos plan to void his $10 million salary and recoup his signing bonus, which James’ camp is expected to fight. 28-year-old James, who opted out of 2020 due to COVID, is a long shot to return this season.

NFL Network's Taylor Bisciotti reports free agent WR DaeSean Hamilton suffered a torn ACL training outside of Denver's team facility.

14 May 2021

It puts Hamilton's salary in jeopardy only 24 hours after he was waived by the Broncos since the injury occurred away from the team's practice facilities. Hamilton was reportedly going to be traded following rookie camp before he suffered the injury. It's a crippling blow as Hamilton, 26, likely won't receive a tryout until next year's minicamps.

Washington signed S Bobby McCain, formerly of the Dolphins, to a one-year contract.

14 May 2021

28 in August, McCain registered 46 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception across 16 games in his first season back from a torn ACL with Miami last year. It's possible this move signals the end for either Troy Apke or Landon Collins in Washington.

Seahawks signed second-round WR D'Wayne Eskridge to a four-year contract.

14 May 2021

Eskridge's (5'9/190) explosive numbers in five years at Western Michigan — 18.5 yards per catch, 9.4 YAC per reception — need be taken with a grain of salt since it came against MAC competition. He was still one of only four FBS players to average 130-plus receiving yards per game in 2020, leveraging his state championship sprinting background to dust man coverage consistently. Eskridge's 4.33 40-time will draw headlines, but he also has immaculate strength and balance with a 350-p ...

Seahawks signed sixth-round OT Stone Forsythe to a four-year contract.

14 May 2021

Reminder the team dealt picks No. 217 and 250 to move up nine spots for Forsythe (6'8/307), who was one of just three OTs in this class listed at 6-foot-8 or taller. He shuffled around the line before ultimately taking starting left tackle duties in 2019, becoming the anchor for a solid Gators OL. Forsythe plays exceptionally smooth for his size, often doing well to keep up around the arc. Forsythe's height gives him a natural leverage disadvantage, though, and some of the sa ...

Dolphins signed WR Jaylen Waddle to a four-year, $27,085,996 million contract. 

14 May 2021

Waddle signed his fully-guaranteed deal with Miami after being drafted with the sixth pick in the 2021 draft. Waddle will reunite with former Alabama teammate Tua Tagovailoa in Miami and will be a deep-threat playmaker opposite Will Fuller and DeVante Parker. He adds speed and separation the team's offense was desperately missing in 2020. The rookie should soon be fully recovered from the dislocated ankle he suffered last season. 

Packers signed second-round C Josh Myers to a four-year, $5,580,142 million contract.

14 May 2021

It includes a $1,418,284 million signing bonus. Myers (6'5/312) was an asset in the running game in college, playing the angles, arriving with bad intentions, and working hard to shuffle his feet after impact to establish play-side positioning. When he missed, it was because he came in too high while trying to use his body like a kamikaze, not a sealant. In pass protection, Myers offers length, throws powerful hands, and plays angles like he does in t ...

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said "it’s fair to assume" Isaiah Simmons and No. 16 overall pick Zaven Collins will line up together as starters.

14 May 2021

That means Collins will indeed be taking over the MIKE linebacker role from veteran Jordan Hicks, who has since requested a trade. The Bronco Nagurski and Bednarick Awards winner for his work in 2020, Collins profiles as a terrifying tackler with spider-quick reflexes when the ball is in his reach. Cardinals will enter 2021 with arguably the rangiest duo of inside linebackers in the entire league.
