NFL competition committee recommending one more year of experimenting with the rule that moved the touchback to the 25-yard line on kickoffs. Would evaluate after the 2017 season.

Source tells me UConn safety Obi Melifonwu had a private meeting today with Bucs defensive backs coach Brett Maxie. He had a really solid pro day Wednesday. Showed great movement, fluidity, footwork and was explosive when he accelerated. Scouts really like his length too. He posted a 44-inch vertical at the combine (one inch off the combine all-time record) and his 6-foot-4 frame gives him the ability to match up against bigger receivers and tight ends.

Backup quarterback Kellen Moore did not receive a signing bonus but he had $100,000 of his base salary guaranteed in his one-year deal with the Cowboys. Interestingly that is more guaranteed money than what Darren McFadden received ($80,000) in his one-year deal with the Cowboys.

New Saints LB Manti Te'o also said there will be a "level of comfort" working with Saints LB coach Mike Nolan again after they worked together with the Chargers. But Te'o said, "he didn't really recruit me at all. New Orleans kind of recruited itself." Te'o will also join several fellow Polynesians on the Saints' roster – including edge rusher Hau'oli Kikaha, who is from the same hometown in Hawaii. Te'o said he has followed Kikaha's career.

New Saints LB Manti Te'o said he'll play "wherever they need me … whatever's going to put me in position to get the running back, quarterback, receiver or whoever has the ball." The Saints are now loaded with middle linebackers with Te'o, newly-signed A.J. Klein, last year's starter Craig Robertson and former first-round pick Stephone Anthony. Te'o did say, however, that it's his goal to emerge as the signal caller from that group – something he has done "since Pop Warner." "I've always been a leader, whether it was inside or outside, I've always been a signal caller," Te'o said. "And it's not just to have on my resume, it's because I'm most comfortable when guys depend on me. To have their trust helps elevate my game. To have that responsibility brings out the best in me, and it's something I'm real comfortable with."

I'm getting plenty of messages on social media this week from Miami Dolphins fans expressing dislike for potentially drafting a guard in the first round. Usually, I agree. But this year is different for a few reasons. First, I like Forrest Lamp as a prospect. I project he will be a good NFL guard who is versatile enough to be a backup offensive tackle when injuries occur. That is valuable. Second, we finally saw what steady guard play (Laremy Tunsil, Jermon Bushrod) can do for Miami's offense last season. Do you really want to go back to the guard play of 2012-2015 when Ryan Tannehill was the most sacked QB in that span? Third, the Dolphins are picking No. 22 after making the playoffs, not their usual spot in this top 15. Finally, I don't trust Miami can find starting-caliber guards in the middle rounds. We've seen the team fail at that multiple times in recent years with the Dallas Thomas and Billy Turners of the world.

The Bengals are re-signing RB Cedric Peerman, a source confirmed. Peerman is an important piece on their special teams units. He made the 2015 Pro Bowl for his special teams play but spent half of 2016 on injured reserve. Zac Jackson (@akronjackson) first reported the news.
