Speculation And Dot Connecting Begin For Jamaal Charles Saturday, February 25, 2017 | Time: 12:18 PT |  Reported by ESPN.com

The Facts: In assessing the Eagles' needs in the looming free-agency period, ESPN.com's Tim McManus notes VP of football operations Howie Roseman and company could make one splash signing (wide receiver?) then wait for the second wave and search for lower-cost players to help bolster the roster. "McManus added, One name worth pondering if he shakes loose is Charles."
Diehards Line: The 30-year-old veteran is set to count more than $6 million against the cap in 2017. The Chiefs, who only have about $5 million in cap space at the moment, just signed C.J. Spiller on Friday, fueling speculation that Charles might be on the move. Charles' recent injury history has to be considered. But when healthy, Charles has been dynamite. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards five times since being drafted in 2008, averaging an eye-popping 5.5 yards per carry along the way with 43 touchdowns. He is also a receiving threat out of the backfield, catching 70 balls for close to 700 yards with seven touchdowns in Andy Reid's first year with the Chiefs. Eagles HC Doug Pederson was Charles' OC for three seasons in Kansas City. Safe to say, Charles is a fit for the system Pederson brought to Philadelphia, which is similar to the one Reid runs in Kansas City. In addition, the Eagles need to add to their backfield. Ryan Mathews suffered a neck injury late last season. The expectation is that he will not be back with the team in 2017. That leaves second-year back Wendell Smallwood and the 33-year-old Darren Sproles as the two main holdovers. While both have value, it would be wise to bring in additional firepower. It's worth watching.

Tevor Siemian Optimistic He'll Be Ready For OTAs Saturday, February 25, 2017 | Time: 10:50 PT |  Reported by Denver7

The Facts: Siemian shed the sling on his surgically-repaired, non-throwing left shoulder, and remains optimistic he will be ready when OTAs begin in April. In an exclusive interview Friday, Siemian told Denver7 a follow-up exam next month will help determine a timeline for his recovery. "I am out of the sling and everything is going really well so far," Siemian said. "I should be good for OTAs but we'll see. I'll touch base with the Doc at the end of March and see how I am doing."
Diehards Line: Siemian separated his left shoulder on Oct. 2 at Tampa Bay. Siemian missed the next game at home against Atlanta -- the Broncos' first loss -- and returned the following week. He admitted he played in discomfort until the final three games of the season. Siemian chose elective surgery on Jan. 3 to help him work out more and build strength. He wore a sling until earlier this month, and it came off on schedule. Even if Siemian misses time during April OTAs, those are non-contact workouts. The team continues practicing through mid-June, leaving plenty of opportunities for him to compete with former first-round pick Paxton Lynch for the starting job before training camp. Any delay or extra caution in Siemian's recovery would provide additional reps for Lynch. As Denver7's Troy Renck notes, the Broncos continue to express confidence in their two young quarterbacks in offensive coordinator Mike McCoy's system, but until clarity exists in Tony Romo's situation he will be connected to the Broncos.

Rob Gronkowski, who underwent season-ending back surgery in December, told ESPN's Cari Champion that he "no doubt" will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

Gronkowski, whose injury was traced to a big hit he absorbed from Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas on Nov. 13, played only eight games during the 2016 season. He also missed time earlier in the season with a hamstring injury and bruised lung.

The tight end's desire to play remains strong even though he has undergone eight surgeries as an NFL player by age 27.
