Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds said new pass interference rules will be ‘tough' but will incentivize players to use their feet more than their hands.

When it comes to pass interference, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones wants to be able to correct the obvious missed calls but he does not want a new rule to go too far. “I do think anything that we can do that makes it address a wrong, a wrong - that's a key right there - a wrong, that doesn't disrupt the natural flow or the parts of the game that aren't as disruptive that are hard to call or hard to officiate,” Jones said. “I hope we stay away from those areas because that takes flow out of the game, that costs time, all of that is not in the direction we want to go, not just with officiating but the entertainment, the game part of it. We want to get it right. There's too much at stake. When we have a chance to basically say that we can change something that doesn't have other consequences down the road, the nuances of not necessarily getting the obvious one right, but the nuances of everything else is where you get into all of the debate.”

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones does not believe there will be any actions taken against Ezekiel Elliott by the NFL from the incident early last Sunday morning in Las Vegas. “I think that the main thing is that I don't see anything that needs supporting,” Jones said Thursday. “In terms of his status with us, (it) has not been impacted in any way and frankly I know how conscientious he has been in the offseason and that's good enough. No, I don't see that having any consequences for us.”

The Patriots have signed undrafted rookie WR/PR Gunner Olszewski of Division II Bemidji State (Minnesota). Olszewski, who played CB in college, was present at today's voluntary organized team activity, wearing No. 72. The team had an open roster spot after OT Jared Veldheer was placed on the reserve/retired list on Tuesday.

Per the 49ers, rookie DE Nick Bosa has a grade 1 hamstring strain and will not practice the next few weeks while receiving treatment. That likely means he will not participate in the rest of OTAs or the final minicamp and will return for the start of training camp in July. Bosa tweaked the hamstring in Tuesday's OTA.

LB Jamie Collins, who in spring practices is wearing the same jersey number he donned in college, acknowledged that part of him was surprised to hear from the Patriots as a free agent. He said part of his decision to return was based on family considerations. Collins added that one of the nice parts of returning to New England is reunited with LB Dont'a Hightower, whom he called his "big bro." He also said that being coached by his former teammate Jerod Mayo makes it "even more fun."

Julian Edelman on his contract extension: "I'm born here in my football career. I'm going to have a few more years here. I just want to take a second and thank the Kraft family, Coach Belichick, Nick Caserio, my agents, and everyone that was involved for getting this done. I love being here. I don't want to be anywhere else. I'm excited for this upcoming year … to mold our team and keep it going. I've got a big chip on my shoulder still."

My biggest takeaway from the Patriots' voluntary organized team activity is that the depth is thin at left tackle with 2018 first-round pick Isaiah Wynn (Achilles) and 2019 third-round pick Yodny Cajuste (calf) not yet ready to participate in 11-on-11 drills, and then veteran Jared Veldheer informing the club he plans to retire earlier this week. So that had starting left guard Joe Thuney kicking out to left tackle, where he had played at NC State, with veteran Brian Schwenke moving to left guard.

Pat Mahomes was wearing a helmet visor at practice on Thursday. "We're trying it out,'' Mahomes said. "I definitely like it. Hopefully I keep playing (well) in it. I'm pretty superstitious. If I'm playing well with it, I'll keep it going.''

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes applauded when the Chiefs recently drafted a fast wide receiver, Mecole Hardman, with their top pick. But Mahomes said he had to remind Hardman at practice this week not to give up on routes far down the field because Mahomes has the arm to get him the ball. “There are sometimes that he runs and he gets like 45, 50 yards down the field and he kind of slows down,'' Mahomes said. “I told him, ‘Keep running. Just keep running.' That's something we've all kind of gotten accustomed to is we always want to stay alive, keep running. There are no clear routes. We want to make sure that everyone knows they have a chance to catch the ball.''

The Chiefs this afternoon finished their first week of offseason practice. Defensive lineman Chris Jones has not been participating. Jones, who had 15.5 sacks last season, is heading into the final season of the contract he signed as a second-round pick in 2016. "We just go,'' coach Andy Reid said of practicing without Jones. "(If) you're here, you get better. (If) you're not, you don't.''

Patriots first-round draft choice N'Keal Harry, who was active in Thursday's practice and made a nice play on a slant to catch a short TD pass, said that he has yet to connect with Tom Brady other than on social media.

QB Sam Darnold expressed mixed emotions on the firing of GM Mike Maccagnan. "Taking me three overall, it was a life-changing experience and I'll forever be grateful," Darnold said. "But I do understand it's a tough business. I understand that and a lot of guys on the team do." S Jamal Adams, picked sixth overall by Maccagnan in 2017, showed no emotion. Basically, he chalked it up to the business.

Drew Brees said he took a little more family time than usual to decompress after the way last season ended. When asked for his mindset heading into this summer, the Saints QB said: "You always try to take your experiences from the year before and turn it into something positive. Momentum, motivation, chip on your shoulder, unfinished business — whatever you want to term it, there's something to prove."
