Raiders ink Jeremy Deering
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Harris gains medical clearance
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:55 pm ET) Broncos cornerback Chris Harris has been cleared to start practicing on a limited basis, reports the Denver Post. Harris, who suffered a 30 percent ACL tear in the playoff win over the Chargers, got clearance from his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews.

"It passed," Harris said. "Everything’s OK. Everything’s good. I can feel like a teammate now."

Harris hopes to join individual and position drills this week, the paper said.


Sammy Watkins shows big catch radius
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins made a difficult sideline grab at practice in which he displayed a large catch radius. Anticipation continues to build about what the No. 4 overall pick will do this season.

"There’s a lot of excitement for Sammy," offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. "The good thing about Sammy is that he’s very humble and he’s brought a great level of competition to the group and to everybody. He gets us all excited.

"What he’s done is he has amped up the competition across the whole board. Even for the quarterbacks to get him the ball on time. His work ethic is going through the whole team. I think the guys really appreciate him because he is humble. It’s just fun to have him on the team. It’s just that simple."


Alshon Jeffery: 'I'm all right'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:38 pm ET) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery, who left practice early with a sore foot, said it's nothing to be concerned about. "I'm all right," he told the Chicago Tribune.

Bills' OC: C.J. Spiller needs the ball more
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:33 pm ET) Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said running back C.J. Spiller needs more touches. The comment came in response to a question about Spiller's yards per catch declining from 10.7 in 2012 to 5.6 last year.

"We just have to give him the ball more," Hackett said. "When you look at any situation when you have a player like C.J., you want to get him out there a whole bunch. You want to throw him the ball, you want to hand him the ball off and that’s one thing that we have to do. He’s a great player and we have to feature him just like we have to feature a lot of guys.

"It’s about getting more plays, getting more opportunities to get him out there, keeping the quarterback in there consistent and making sure we have a guy in there that knows what we want to do and keep him in there. We want to be able to distribute the ball across the field."


Odell Beckham's missed practices: Four and counting
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham missed his fourth straight practice Monday with a hamstring injury, reports The Star Ledger. Coach Tom Coughlin is growing frustrated that the first-round pick is falling behind.

Beckham also missed a lot of spring workouts due to the injury.


Adrian Peterson: We won't be predictable this year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:11 pm ET) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson sounds thrilled with the change in offensive coordinators from Bill Musgrave to Norv Turner.

"This is what I've been looking for the past seven years," Peterson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "And now I feel like we have an offense that fits our talent and what we have as far as the players at their positions and what they're able to do. I'm pretty excited for what Norv Turner is putting in for us. It's putting guys in opportunities to make plays and be more versatile as an offense. So I'm stoked about that."

Peterson said it's refreshing to play in an offense that's unpredictable.

"Not to take anything away from the coaches we had before, but just being more versatile as an offense," he said. "I just call it what it is. I feel in the past, we were predictable. You guys wrote stories about being predictable in the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all that I'm saying. You won't be able to do that because this offense is so versatile."

Pierre Garcon leaves with sore hamstring
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:00 pm ET) Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon left practice early because of a sore right hamstring, but he's not concerned and neither is coach Jay Gruden.

"He’ll be OK,” Gruden told the Washington Post. Garcon said he felt some soreness and didn't think it was wise to push it.

"I’ll be good," Garcon said. "No need to rush."

The Redskins are off Tuesday before resuming practice Wednesday.


Giants set unrealistic goal for Eli Manning
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:55 pm ET) Giants quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf would like Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this year. While Manning is focused on improving his accuracy and will take fewer deep shots, the goal is unrealistic.

Manning has a career completion percentage of 58.5 and his career-best was 62.9 percent in 2010.

"We'd love to be up there at 70 percent," Langsdorf said, via the New York Daily News. "It hasn't been done very often. That's the ultimate goal. We'd like to raise his completion percentage for sure."

Only four players in NFL history have posted a completion percentage above 70. Manning has completed 70 percent of his throws in a single game just 15 times in 10 seasons.

"The high 60s is kind of the goal, to be in the top of the league," Manning said. "Sure it's realistic. It's a combination of the offense and the players we have."
