The group celebration. The snow angel. The jump shot. The NFL says these will be allowed in 2017. So what won't be?

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said rookie receiver Mike Williams still has back tightness, but he hopes to get the Clemson product back on the field next week: "He's getting behind right now, and we've got to get him back out on the field," Lynn said. "If he wasn't a rookie it would be different. But he has so much to learn, and some of this you can only learn on the field."

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.

49ers DE Aaron Lynch says he's worked his (rear end) off to get back in shape this offseason. Said he still has some work to do as he's in the 280-pound range and his target weight is between 260 and 270.

The Jets have signed two more draft picks -- S Marcus Maye (second round) and OLB Dylan Donahue (fifth round). They both receive four-year contracts -- $6.6 million for Maye, $2.6 million for Donahue. Only two of the nine picks remain unsigned -- first-round S Jamal Adams and third-round WR ArDarius Stewart.
