The Bucs sent running backs coach Todd McNair to Georgia's pro day to watch Elijah Holyfield and McNair met with him privately after, per a source. The Bucs have been doing their due diligence on a number of running backs in this year's draft class. McNair visited with Miles Sanders at Penn State earlier this week.

A source tells me that Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams not only had a formal interview with the Bucs at the NFL combine but has a 30-visit scheduled April 8 (teams are allowed to bring in a maximum of 30 draft prospects, excluding local players). The Bucs hold the No. 5 pick in the NFL draft, so he would be an option there.

Saints WR Cameron Meredith agreed to a pay cut that reduced his base salary from $3.4 million to $1.3 million, a source told ESPN's Field Yates, dropping his salary-cap number to $4.15 million. That makes sense, since the Saints are still optimistic about Meredith's potential now that he is almost two years removed from a major knee injury. But they had to weigh whether it was worth keeping him when he was due a total of $5.05 million in salary and bonuses. If Meredith returns to form this summer, he still has a chance to emerge as New Orleans' top slot receiver – especially since they didn't sign any of the top slot receivers available on the free agent market this year.

The Eagles are closing in on a reunion with DE Vinny Curry. Curry, 30, had 2.5 sacks and three TFL with the Bucs last season. He was originally a second-round pick by the Eagles and played his first six seasons in Philly, including during the team's 2017 Super Bowl run.

I take full responsibility for my actions. There is no excuse for my behavior, and I will learn from my mistakes.''

Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin told Sports Radio 950 KJR Wednesday that he has "more surgeries on the way, most likely." Baldwin dealt with injuries to both knees, his elbow, groin, hip and shoulder dating back to last summer. Pete Carroll told reporters at the combine that Baldwin had surgery on his knee and shoulder since the end of the season. The Seahawks' interest in free-agent receiver Jordy Nelson -- whom they had in for a visit Tuesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter -- may not be directly tied to Baldwin's health. After all, the Seahawks had interest in Nelson last offseason before he signed with Oakland, and he's a different type of receiver than Baldwin.

A couple of more contract particulars for Lions free agents: Andrew Adams' 1-year deal is worth $920,000. That includes a $720,000 base salary and $100,000 signing bonus. He also has a $100,000 roster bonus if he's on the 53-man roster for the first game of the season. Cap hit is $920,000. Oday Aboushi's 1-year deal with the Lions has a $1 million base salary with a $250,000 signing bonus. Cap hit is $1.25 million.

The Jets are going light on quarterback insurance this year, a show of faith in Sam Darnold. The one-year contract for new backup Trevor Siemian, who agreed to terms Wednesday, is for only $2 million. A year ago, they went to training camp with Josh McCown ($10M) and Teddy Bridgewater ($6M) before trading Bridgewater. Darnold will miss McCown as a mentor; that can't be overstated. Siemian is a strong-armed passer who has won some games, but he hasn't started many more games than Darnold — 24 to 13. If Siemian fizzles or gets injured in training camp, it wouldn't shock me if McCown returns. Adam Gase's hunch on Siemien had better be right because the Jets can't afford to flush the season if Darnold goes down.
