What do the Browns free agent moves on the OL mean for Cam Erving? "That we're going to stick him out at right tackle, see if he can compete and earn the right to be the starting right tackle for the Cleveland Browns," coach Hue Jackson said.

Veteran DE Chris Long, who spent the 2016 season with the Patriots, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Eagles. Long had previously said he wouldn't be returning to the Patriots, as he enjoyed his Super Bowl season in New England but was looking to be part of a scheme that he felt would allow him to get back to being himself. The Eagles' 4-3 defense under coordinator Jim Schwartz fits the bill for him.

Add Mike Tomlin to the list of Steelers officials that gives hope to Ben Roethlisberger returning next year. Tomlin said at the NFL owners meetings he's 'proceeding with that assumption' that Roethlisberger returns. Tomlin has been in consistent contact with Roethlisberger since the season ended.

Mike Mularkey on Marcus Mariota's recovery now that he is out of the boot: "You would not know he had an injury, there is no limp or gait in his walk. I think he's right on schedule, if not ahead." No big pronouncement on changing timetable. Intention has been to hold him out of off-season. "If he's ready, we'll see what he can do. We'll allow him to do what he's capable of doing."

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on soon-to-be 65-year-old Bill Belichick: "I don't think he is slowing down. The guy is winning rings. He's stumbling over all the rings he's winning. He's the best, and it's not surprising to see him work as hard as he does."

In discussing how the Browns could address the quarterback position, Hue Jackson mentioned the draft, then added: "There's trade opportunities hopefully. I think we'll exhaust every opportunity as we go forward."

Bill O'Brien said while there are some good quarterbacks in the draft, he thinks "it's tough to play quarterback as a rookie in our league." "I think that's a tough task," O'Brien said. "I think that there's no substitute for experience so I think it's hard to ask a guy to come in straight from college and Day 1, he's a starter on your team."

Bill O'Brien said the Texans are still in the process of figuring out who Houston will pair with for training practice joint practices, but they'll hold at least one.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey also said there shouldn't be any doubt which CB will draw the opponents' No. 1 receiver. Newly-signed AJ Bouye said he wasn't sure if it would be him or Ramsey. "Ya'll know the answer to that question," Ramsey said. He also said he's excited about the addition of Bouye. Says they'll push each other and make each other better.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, speaking between bites of bacon and scrambled eggs, had some nice things to say about the Rams' new offensive line coach, Aaron Kromer, whom he worked with in Buffalo. "I think Krome's one of the better offensive-line coaches in the game," he said. "He's an excellent teacher, he has a good relationship with his players, and I think he got the most out of them (with the Bills). It was very easy to put together plans with him. He gets it. It was a pleasure to work with him."

Hue Jackson explained why he prefers a private workout when evaluating a quarterback over the player's pro day. Jackson said a private workout is "where you get the player to do exactly what it is you want to see him do as opposed to him coming there with his quarterback coach, it's all scripted. It's exactly how they want it." A private workout gives coaches more opportunity to challenge players.

Bill O'Brien said even though the Texans haven't added free agents, they're "doing a lot of things on the inside to improve." "Every team has their own way of doing things," O'Brien said. "We're doing things to improve our team. Maybe you don't see it, but we're doing a lot of things on the inside to improve our team. There's still a lot of time left. … It's a fluid process. It takes a lot of time to put a team together. We have a lot of time here. We have the draft, we have training camp. We're a long way away from what that 53-man roster is going to look like."
