NFL Notes: La’el Collins, Panthers, Raiders, & Ravens

La’el Collins

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk that NFL teams are prohibited from visiting with a player who was eligible for the 2015 Draft until he’s officially done with school.

Clubs are prohibited from visiting a player who was eligible for the 2015 Draft at his campus or residence if the player has withdrawn from school and final exams have yet to conclude at the school,” McCarthy said. “This includes drafted players, any undrafted players that have signed as free agents, and any undrafted players that have yet to sign.

Ian Rapoport adds that Collins’ finals end on Saturday, May 9.


The Carolina Panthers announced Tuesday that special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven is taking a leave of absence to deal with health concerns.

Our thoughts are with Bruce and his family, and we wish him a quick recovery,” head coach Ron Rivera said. “Out of respect for Bruce and his family’s privacy, no additional information will be disclosed.”

Russ Purnell will takeover in DeHaven’s absence.



  • Aaron Wilson reports that the Ravens are signing East Carolina WR Cam Worthy to three-year deal
