Bills

New Bills OC Greg Roman said that all four of their quarterbacks — Matt Cassel, E.J. Manuel, Tyrod Taylor, and Jeff Tuel — will get first-team reps in practice.

“I think all four are doing a very nice job in our meetings and in communicating, as we are in a teaching phase,” Roman said their quarterbacks, via Pro Football Talk.  “They’re all going to have ample opportunity to get out there and practice.  When we start evaluating then we’ll start to play around with things a little bit, who’s with the first team the one day, and the next day, and so forth.  Everyone will have a chance to work with the first team and everybody’s going to have ample opportunity to put their best foot forward.  And then we’ll have a good feel for it as we go.”

Dolphins

James Walker of ESPN takes a look at what’s next for the Dolphins now that they’ve locked up C Mike Pouncey to a long-term contract.

  • Walker mentions that it would make sense for the Dolphins to sign a veteran receiver, but only “at the right price.”
  • Walker believes the Dolphins should address linebacker, wide receiver, guard and cornerback in the draft.
  • Miami will also need to make a decision about QB Ryan Tannehill, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Vikings

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson isn’t sure if he’ll participate in the team’s offseason workouts. Peterson also confirmed that he has yet to be reinstated by the NFL.

We’ll see,” Peterson said, via Ben Goessling of ESPN. “I haven’t even been reinstated yet.”
