1.Smith fined $88K for blowing off minicam... (Rotoworld) Jaguars LB Telvin Smith was fined $88,650 for skipping last week's mandatory minicamp. Analysis: Smith, who confirmed the news himself on his Instagram story, was fined $14,775 for the first day, $29,550 for the second and $44,325 for the third and final day of Jags minicamp. The 2014 fifth-rounder announced last month that he would be taking the season off to "get his world in order," though his locker at the team's facility remains intact. It's possible Smith files retirement paperwork, which would prevent him from future fines while giving Jacksonville an additional $9.75 mi... (More)9 hours
2.John Ross struggling with consistency (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jay Morrison reports John Ross has struggled with consistency during spring practices. Analysis: This comes after teammate Tyler Boyd suggested Ross was still having trouble picking up the offense. Ross isn't off to a great start, though that's not surprising given his history of lapses. Playing under a new coaching staff, Ross is entering a make-or-break 2019.1 day
3.Dynasty | David Moore makes big jump (Dynasty League Football) Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll said sophomore receiver David Moore has "made a big jump" Analysis: Carroll, never known for hyperbole (as if), lauded Moore's flexibility and is now moving him around the formation, saying he's really "stepped up". With the departure of Doug Baldwin this off-season, there's a lot of targets to be spread around and Tyler Lockett is the only sure-thing among so many young receivers on the depth chart. Jaron Brown has also recently received praise and rookie DK Metcalf was ... (More)1 day
4.John Ross: Inconsistent so far (RotoWire) Ross missed some practices during the offseason program and was inconsistent when he was on the field, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Ross is getting a fresh start under a new coaching staff but doesn't seem to be taking advantage of the opportunity so far. He had a perplexing 21-210-7 receiving line on 58 targets (3.6 YPT) last season, proving useful in the red zone while struggling badly in all other areas of the field. The Bengals still hope he can develop into a deep threat, as his record-setting time in the 40-yard dash (4.22 seconds) presumably played a big role in the team's decision to draft him at No. 9 overa...

5.Bradley McDougald: Sheds light on offseason surgery (RotoWire) McDougald said Thursday that the surgery he underwent this offseason was to address a partially torn patellar tendon that he played through during the second half of the 2018 season, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: McDougald reportedly tried rehabbing the injury this offseason, but he eventually decided to undergo surgery right before the start of OTAs. Considering the 28-year-old said he'd be ready to play if the regular season began this week, McDougald should be ready to go when training camp kicks off late next month.3 days
6.Chiefs sign ex-Jets TE Neal Sterling (Rotoworld) Chiefs signed TE Neal Sterling. Analysis: Sterling was cut by the Jets two days ago. Sterling drew some occasional hype in Florham Park, but ended up catching just 12 passes across 16 games in two years. The No. 2 job behind Travis Kelce is wide open, so Sterling should have a legitimate shot at cracking the 53-man roster.3 days
7.Carroll praises David Moore's offseason (Rotoworld) Speaking Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll singled out WR David Moore's offseason for praise. Analysis: Carroll said Moore has "made a huge leap in overall knowledge of receiving and ability to play multiple spots." The 2017 seventh-rounder made noise as a big-play threat last season but posted inconsistent numbers on inconsistent usage. He was phased out the down the stretch. The Seahawks have since seen the retirement of Doug Baldwin, though they also used three draft picks on wideouts. Moore figures to remain a highly-volatile WR5/6 in a run-first offense. 3 days
8.Hyde lining up with Damien Williams at O... (Rotoworld) Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde has occasionally lined up with Damien Williams on the field at minicamp. Analysis: Not only has he shared the field with Williams at times, Hyde's also been heavily involved as a receiver out of the backfield. "I didn't know they used the running back so much in the passing game until I got here," Hyde emphasized. "It put a smile on my face." Given Andy Reid's historical preference to utilize one back, it's still likely Hyde remains an afterthought unless Williams goes down mid-season.4 days
9.Chris Thompson: Looking good in minicamp (RotoWire) Thompson doesn't appear to be hampered by his prior rib or ankle injuries during minicamp, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Thompson said in May that he's still experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired leg, but he's reportedly looked "agile" as a receiver out of the backfield and in the slot during OTAs this spring. Meanwhile, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington relays that Thompson remains locked in as the third-down back for a team that wants to reserve early down work for Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice (knee). It might be a slight surprise if Thompson approaches the 33.4 percent share of backfield snaps ... (More)4 days
10.Reich: Campbell will 'probably affect' H... (Rotoworld) Frank Reich said the addition of rookie slot WR Parris Campbell would "probably" affect Nyheim Hines. Analysis: Reich believes this is a good thing for Hines, but it likely means fewer targets for Hines. The Colts have made it clear that Marlon Mack will remain their "main guy" with Hines filling in as a third-down back. If the roster stays as is, Hines will find it difficult to match last year's 63 receptions, and he'll find extremely hard to reach his goal of 1,000 total yards. Reich said the offensive game plan will alter week-to-week depending on the opposing defe... (More)4 days
11.Neal Sterling: Let go by Jets (RotoWire) Sterling (undisclosed) was released by the Jets on Tuesday, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Sterling was held out of practice last week due to an undisclosed injury, and it appears to have cost him a roster spot. Sterling signed with the Jets back in March but will now be back on the open market.5 days
12.Josh Jones: Nursing hamstring injury (RotoWire) Jones did not participate in minicamp Tuesday due to a hamstring injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Jones requested a trade from the Packers while skipping OTAs a few weeks ago, but now his absence is apparently due to a legitimate injury. The severity is unclear, but it appears Green Bay is not in any rush to deal Jones regardless.5 days
13.Packers S Josh Jones shows up for minica... (Rotoworld) Packers S Josh Jones reported for minicamp. Analysis: Unhappy after the Packers added Adrian Amos in free agency and drafted Darnell Savage in the first round, Jones tried to force a trade by skipping the voluntary portions of the offseason program, but Green Bay has no desire to trade him. Assuming he sticks around, Jones could be asked to help out in a thin linebacking corps.5 days
14.Jets release TE Neal Sterling (Rotoworld) Jets released TE Neal Sterling. Analysis: Sterling re-signed with the Jets in March, but his roster chances took a hit when New York added Trevon Wesco in the fourth round. He will look for backup work on the open market.5 days
