Raiders coach Jack Del Rio's idea for overtime in the NFL? Pattern it after the college football model. "The way that New England went down and scored, I would have liked to have seen Marty Ice get an opportunity to answer," Del Rio said of Super Bowl LI. "I like the idea of both teams having a chance. But again, whatever the rules are, we'll play within those rules. We understand what they are. We'll be prepared to go." The NFL changed OT from 15 minutes to 10 minutes on Tuesday. Had the rule been in effect last season, the Raiders would have had a 24-24 tie at Tampa Bay and gone 11-4-1 since Seth Roberts' 41-yard catch-and-run TD came 13:15 into OT.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he's hoping to build competition all over the roster, but that's particularly apparent with the top offensive line already. The Niners rotated Joshua Garnett and Brandon Fusco at right guard with Trent Brown and Garry Gilliam getting work at right tackle.

49ers C Jeremy Zuttah was working with first team offense when he departed with an apparent leg issue. Daniel Kilgore, who is expected to compete with Zuttah for the starting job, stepped in to replace Zuttah.

OTAs are voluntary but 49ers had perfect attendance save for rookie DL Solomon Thomas and WR Kendrick Bourne, both of whom aren't allowed to attend until their school year finishes. WR Bruce Ellington and RB Raheem Mostert worked on the side. Coach Kyle Shanahan appreciates his team showing up: "It's hard to build a team when your team's not there," Shanahan said.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear there will be competition for playing time at linebacker, particularly in nickel packages where only two linebackers will be on the field. NaVorro Bowman, Reuben Foster and Malcolm Smith figure into that battle but Bowman, who is coming off an Achilles injury, is confident he'll remain in the mix. "I won't be on the sideline, I'll tell you that right now," Bowman said.

Former Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's comments to the Tampa media were taken out of context on Twitter. Here's the full quote about losing his job last season: "That's the harsh reality of the NFL. There's only so many jobs that are available. I can't complain about it. Last year I was the starter. If you play well as the starter, you continue to play. I didn't play well, so I lost the game of musical chairs. They pulled out my chair from under me."
