Securing Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen through the 2020 season with a two-year extension does not mean the Panthers won't take a tight end with the 24th pick in tonight's NFL draft. As I was told by a source, "nothing is off the table.'' The Panthers still need a backup tight end that can catch as insurance in case Olsen gets hurt as he did last year They run a lot of two tight-end sets as well.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Panthers' TE Greg Olsen is signing a two-year extension today worth $8.55M per year with a max value of up to $10.05M per year, per source. I also confirmed the deal is worth $17.1 million over two years, per source. Olsen has been seeking extension and security.

RB Paul Perkins not participating in Giants minicamp because of a pectoral injury. It occurred before the offseason program and he had a procedure. The Giants are short on running backs right now. Hmmmmmm.

The Bucs have agreed to a one-year deal with running back Charles Sims, as first reported by the Tampa Bay Times. They have also looked at a number of running backs in the draft. This gives some insurance, especially without a third-round pick.

Here is Jaguars owner Shad Khan's statement regarding his offer to purchase Wembley Stadium. He says it would help ensure the team's "long-term promise for the Jaguars here in Jax."

Could be, as usual, quite frenetic tonight. Teams open to moving back in first round include the Ravens, Seahawks, Lions, Titans.

Jets daily draft nugget: Finally, it's draft day! They have six picks, but they're hoping to acquire more through trades. The six: Round 1 (3 overall), Round 3 (72), Round 4 (103), Round 5 (148), Round 6 (165) and Round 7 (209). They like the running-back depth and could go for a back in the third round. Defensive end and cornerback also are big needs. Player to watch: Troubled WR Antonio Callaway, who has a list of off-the-field issues. The Jets had him in for a top-30 visit. He'd be a highly controversial selection.
