With 21 NFL teams set to dive into organized team activities on Tuesday, let's dump the notebook on a few morsels hanging out there as this Memorial Day creeps to a close:
The NFL offseason workout program calendar has been released for all 32 teams. Find out your favorite team's schedule. More...
- According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Shonn Greene won't be the only veteran fighting for his starting spot with the Titans. Michael Oher's status at right tackle is on thin ice after the team used its first-round draft pick on Michigan's Taylor Lewan. With Michael Roos expected to start on either the left or right side, it wouldn't surprise us if Oher begins the year on the bench. Of course, that will change if Roos is shopped before the season.
- The Chiefs raised eyebrows when they ignored the receiver position to use the No. 23 overall pick on pass rusher Dee Ford. With Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery projected as Kansas City's top two wideouts, general manager John Dorsey pointed to Travis Kelce as a candidate to "stretch the field as a tight end," per TheMMQB.com. After missing nearly his entire rookie season due to microfracture surgery, Kelce has a legitimate chance to jump in and contribute in Year 2.
- Kelce isn't K.C.'s only mystery man at tight end. Coach Andy Reid is thrilled with the progress of former basketball player Demetrius Harris. The 6-foot-7, 230-pound target from Wisconsin-Milwaukee was eligible for the team's rookie camp after failing to record a snap last season. "I thought he played exceptionally well," Reid said. "He's so big and he's worked so stinking hard in the weight room, he's been living in there with (strength and conditioning coach) Barry (Rubin) this offseason and you can tell. You can see he's gotten stronger."
- Thirty-six-year-old Tom Brady told TheMMQB.com's Peter King that he wasn't surprised to see New England use a second-round pick on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The Patriots are planning for the future, but their Uggs-wearing starter doesn't intend to step aside any time soon. Saying that he feels "better today than when I was 25," Brady waxed poetic on the aging process, telling King: "You know, you don't have to suck when you get older."
- Don't plan on seeing Henry Melton, either, when the Cowboys open OTAs on Tuesday. Coming off last year's ACL surgery, the defensive tackle is penciled in to make his debut at training camp in July, according to the team's official website. While the 3 technique is a no-go this week, Dallas does expect two of last year's walking wounded -- linebacker Sean Lee and running back Lance Dunbar -- to join in OTAs.
