Bills coach Doug Marrone had a cancerous mole removed.

An odd story was posted on the Bills' official website stating Marrone had been diagnosed with "BLANK cancer" which was "very treatable." The story spread through social media, prompting its removal from the website and an official statement from the Bills. In the statement, Marrone revealed the procedure, assured fans it went well, and stated it "will have no effect on [his] ability to coach the team moving forward."

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes there is a "good chance" the Texans trade down from the No. 1 overall pick.

Brandt believes it could be a similar situation to the 2004 Eli Manning-Philip Rivers trade in which the Texans would select Jadeveon Clowney in a predetermined deal with another team. Brandt is not the only one suggesting the Texans could trade down. Both the Bills and the Falcons have been linked as possible trading partners for Houston.

Doug Baldwin has yet to sign the second-round tender the Seahawks offered him in March.

Because he is only a restricted free agent, Baldwin does have the opportunity to negotiate and sign a deal with another team, but that does not appear to be his intention. Baldwin worked out with a group of Seahawk players last week and signed a waiver to participate in voluntary workouts this week. He also said he is interested in working out a long-term deal with Seattle. Baldwin will be a Seahawk in 2014 and has some upside as their No. 2 receiver.

Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo is among the 30 players who will attend next month's draft in person.

It's a record number of prospects. The league typically only invites players viewed as first-round picks, but this year's higher number guarantees multiple players will linger into Friday. Garoppolo is perhaps the most-surprising name on the list, but is a first-round dark horse.

Dion Jordan has been working out at the Dolphins' team facility for a "couple of weeks."

Voluntary workouts just began on Monday, but coming off a disappointing rookie season, Jordan decided to report early. "Growth and development are two words I think of when I think of (Jordan)," were the words of coach Joe Philbin. "We’ve got to get him up to speed on the fundamentals at his position, which were new last season for him." Jordan is 100 percent healthy after shoulder surgery cost him much of last offseason.

Speaking Tuesday, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin praised Knowshon Moreno's "versatility and multiple skill-set."

Moreno has averaged just 4.1 yards per carry for his career, but is indeed versatile. He has 157 career receptions across 60 games, and is an able pass protector. Moreno's fantasy value figures to plummet without Peyton Manning at the controls, but he'll be a fungible part of Miami's running-back committee.

The Ravens are pleased with Ray Rice's conditioning at voluntary workouts.

The Ravens want Rice to play near 207 pounds after he checked in around 217 last season. "He's doing some things differently as far as his diet and so forth, and he told me has a handle on it," were the words of strength and conditioning coach Bob Rogucki. "Whatever he did from the end of the season until now, he's in a good position right now." Rice's weight remains a secondary issue to his off-the-field troubles.

Lions LCB Chris Houston is missing voluntary workouts with a toe injury.

It's notable because Houston was sidelined by his toe last December. Houston ended up appearing in only 12 games last season as he battled toe, leg, hamstring and foot issues. Going on 30, Houston remains locked in as a starter, but is coming off the worst year of his career. He needs a healthy training camp.

Profootballtalk reports extension talks between the Chiefs and Alex Smith are moving "very, very slowly."

PFT's Mike Florio expects talks to pick up after the draft, and for Smith to ultimately earn an extension worth $14-$17 million annually. That would be quite a payday for a player who was benched only a year and a half ago. Coming off the best season of his career, Smith turns 30 on May 7.

The league will announce the 2014 schedule Wednesday at 8PM ET on NFL Network.

The "drama" is over. This season's matchups are already known, but the dates are not. The season will begin on a Thursday night in Seattle, where the defending-champion Seahawks will likely host a conference rival.
Apr 22 - 5:02 PM

Malcom Floyd (neck) is participating in voluntary workouts.

Barring a setback, Floyd was always expected to suit up. He's doing so at far less than 100 percent, however. His career remains in limbo, and could remain that way for some time.

A veteran NFC personnel executive believes Jadeveon Clowney "could've started in the NFL his freshman year."

"Right now, today, he's a damn good NFL player, no matter what," the executive said. "His God-given talent is better than 99 percent of the NFL. ... He's gonna be 275 to 285 pounds, and he moves like he's 250. If you hit on him, he changes the game." Although Clowney's game and motivation continues to get picked apart, no one is questioning his raw skill. It would be far from surprising if he was the No. 1 overall pick of next month's draft.

Eli Manning (ankle surgery) expects to be 100 percent for training camp.

Manning is currently on crutches, but is expected to resume running in roughly a month. There's an outside chance he'll be ready for June's minicamp. Barring a setback, Manning's ankle isn't a concern heading into 2014.
Apr 22 - 4:22 PM

Profootballtalk reports "plenty of work" remains in the Seahawks' long-term talks with LCB Richard Sherman.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, "a consensus hasn’t been reached on dollars or terms." This doesn't necessarily run contrary to CBS' Tuesday report that the sides have made "considerable progress." The odds are high that Sherman's contract situation is taken care of before Week 1.
Apr 22 - 4:14 PM

David Wilson (neck) said he expects to be cleared for OTAs.

"For sure," Wilson said. "I expect to. I want to." Wilson feels no pain in his surgically-repaired neck and never has, but we won't find out if he'll be cleared until doctors take another look at his X-rays. Last week, ESPN New York reported the Giants were "hearing good things" on Wilson. He wants to play and has no intention of retiring. It's all in the hands of the medical people.
