This what Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart told the team website about Carolina adding a running back in the draft: "I mean, it's a good thing. You always want fresh legs. Fresh legs mean a lot, especially in the fourth quarter. Having somebody potentially come in here … there are a lot of good running backs in this draft class, a lot of talent. Definitely open arms to get somebody in here that wants to win and understands that. We're better as a fist than we are as an open hand."

The Giants have 71 players signed and are $9,389,876 under the salary cap, per NFLPA records. For what? Hmm. There is a defensive tackle on the market they wouldn't mind re-signing.

As activity in free agency slows to a crawl across the NFL, the Bills have $10.129 million in remaining salary-cap space, according to NFLPA records. That number is expected to increase by about $4 million on June 2, when former safety Aaron Williams' contract comes off the books. The Bills have only 61 players under contract; with a league-low six draft picks, that gives them as many as 23 spots on their 90-man roster to fill after the draft between undrafted rookies and veteran free agents.

The Panthers signed running back Jonathan Stewart to a one-year contract extension, the team announced Friday. Stewart is now under contract through the 2018 season. This shows the Panthers believe at 30 Stewart still can be productive. General manager Dave Gettleman already has said Carolina will draft a running back at some point this year. Much speculation has the Panthers taking LSU's Leonard Fournette at No. 8.

More on Brian Robison's new deal: he was previously scheduled to make up to $5.6M for 2017, none of which was guaranteed. His base salary drops from $5.3M to $3.9M (fully guaranteed), while he still has $100,000 available via a workout bonus (but his $200,000 in per-game roster bonuses for 2017 has been removed). So, Robison trades a base salary pay cut of $1.4M in total for 2017 for an extra year on his deal. In 2018, he has a base salary of $3.2M, $1.25M of which is guaranteed, plus $200,000 in per-game roster bonuses, $100,000 via a workout bonus. In total, there is a base value of $7.5M over two years, $5.15M guaranteed.

Adam Silver pivoted the NBA's position on sports betting with an New York Times op-ed. How will the NFL do it? My guess: Through the owners.
