by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:49 pm ET) Rookie running back T.J. Yeldon signed a four-year deal with the Jaguars, the team announced Wednesday, as the second-round pick prepared to take part in team OTAs. 

Yeldon has a good shot at making an immediate impact in a Jaguars backfield that features Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart as the top rushers. Yeldon racked up more than 3,300 yards and scored 37 touchdowns during his career at Alabama.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:44 pm ET) Jets coach Todd Bowles said quarterback Geno Smith will receive all the first-team reps during OTA practices this week, reports the Associated Press.

"If he's playing well, he's the starter," Bowles said. "It's his [job] to lose."

Although Smith will receive a majority of the snaps with the first team during OTAs, Bowles said that would change during training camp.

"Come camp time, there will be competition at the spot," he said.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:58 am ET) Bills running back LeSean McCoy did not take part in OTAs Wednesday due to a neck injury that wasn't deemed serious, per ESPN.com.

McClain experienced a rebirth with the Cowboys after twice previously retiring from football. He registered 81 tackles (65 solo), one sack and two interceptions in 13 games, although he did battle knee issues during the season.

Report: Redskins release CB Tracy Porter
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:29 am ET) Oft-injured cornerback Tracy Porter was released by the Redskins on Wednesday, per The Washington Post. Porter was not at the start of OTAs on Tuesday due to a missed flight.

The corner did not see much action in Washington after signing a two-year, $6 million contract, appearing in just two games due to shoulder issues. His release will save the Redskins $2.2 million against the salary cap. 

Porter has 10 interceptions over seven NFL seasons with the Saints, Broncos, Raiders and Redskins. 


Report: Redskins to release G Chris Chester
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:55 am ET) According to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Redskins are preparing to release guard Chris Chester, who has started 64 consecutive games with the team. 

Chester, who signed as a free agent with Washington in 2011, was scheduled to make $3.5 million in base salary this season. The move opens the door for Spencer Long to take over at the guard position.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Gibson, who went to Virginia Tech, is expected to be ready for July's training camp. 


Charles Godfrey making strides at safety for Falcons
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:55 am ET) Charles Godfrey didn't make much of an impact during his first season with the Falcons after seven years with the Panthers, but under new coach Dan Quinn, Godfrey has the inside track on earning the free safety position, according to the team's website. 

Godfrey has the size and speed reminiscent to Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, and the Falcons, with former Hawks DC Quinn as coach, will play a similar, aggressive pass defense. 

"(I have the) ability to get to the ball and to make plays when I get to the ball," Godfrey said. "Also, my ability to see the whole field. I have a long ways to go; I'm far from there. But the good thing is we're going to keep watching film and keep pushing."

Godfrey has 11 career interceptions, but none since 2012.
