Rob Gronkowski is "full-go" for OTAs, according to Karen Guregian.
Gronk has no limitations, which is a great sign for his health. Despite all the weapons in the Patriots offense and so many other good tight ends putting up numbers around the league, Gronkowski is definitely worth an early round pick in fantasy drafts this year.
Maclin leaves Buffalo without a deal, is headed to Baltimore, according to Adam Schefter.
The visit for Maclin in Buffalo presumably went well, as it spilled over from yesterday into today and Maclin was seen smiling with running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Tyrod Taylor on McCoy's Instagram. Now the Bills need to worry he doesn't leave Baltimore without a deal. Maclin could be telling all teams involved that he wants to hear from everyone first, however. Buffalo and Baltimore are likely the two favorites for Maclin.
Vikings receiver Adam Thielen says he still has "a long ways to go," according to the Pioneer Press.
Thielen broke out last season for 69 receptions, 967 yards, and five touchdowns, which led to a nice three-year, $27 million contract. Thielen made it clear that he's still working hard to get better and has "too much to work on, too many big goals, to reflect on anything." Thielen got open on short, intermediate, and deep routes for Sam Bradford last season, proving to be a reliable target. The Vikings paid him to continue to be an integral part of the offense, and Thielen offers a pretty high floor in 2017.
Odell Beckham Jr. will show up for the team's mandatory mini camp, according to Art Stapleton.
Kimberly Jones reported on May 25th that OBJ would be reporting to the mandatory team activities on June 13th, but the Adam Schefter report of Beckham being unhappy with his contract put it into question. It doesn't look like it'll be a problem, and hopefully Beckham can put his contract concerns in the back of his mind when he hits the field.
Free agent running back Matt Asiata is signing with the Lions, according to Chris Tomasson.
It's a one-year deal, according Tomasson. The Lions have a deep running back group, so Asiata will need to fight for a roster spot. If he makes the team, Asiata could be the goal line back for Detroit. This shouldn't affect Ameer Abdullah's—who is expected to get over 200 carries—workload.
Cardinals receiver John Brown tweaked his hamstring and missed practice today.
People might get concerned because of Brown's injury and health issues last season, but it's probably just a hamstring strain. The Cardinals might be cautious with Brown, but he should certainly be good for training camp at the very latest, if he doesn't recover by the end of the offseason program.
Lions receiver Marvin Jones has a higher comfort level heading into this season.
This should be the case, as this is Jones' second year with the Lions after he signed with them as a free agent last year. Jones had a very hot start as a Lion last season, but he cooled off considerably in the second half of the year. Still, he averaged 16.9 yards per catch on the year, and is entering year two in the offense. Jones said he worked on his lower body last season, and he wants to do more with the ball in his hands after the catch. Jones offers some good upside later in fantasy drafts.
