      Hurns said he is healthy and has put on some extra muscle to avoid the hamstring injuries that plagued him last season, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

      Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $40 million contract last offseason, Hurns followed up his 2015 breakout with an absolute dud in 2016, catching only 35 of 76 targets for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. His struggles contributed to the emergence of Marqise Lee, who now looms as a serious threat to Hurns' status as the No. 2 receiver. It is possible there will be enough targets to keep all three of Hurns, Lee and No. 1 wideout Allen Robinson happy, as the Jaguars don't boast much in the way of pass-catching talent in the backfield or tight end corps. While unlikely to replicate his 2015 stat line of 64 catches for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games, Hurns should at least re-emerge as a useful part of the offense and a viable deep threat, after producing a miserable 6.3 yards per target with a 46 percent catch rate last season.

      Vinny Curry got first-team reps at right defensive end this week in practice, Jeff McLane of philly.com reports.

      Analysis: The six-year veteran is also lining up on the inside on passing downs. Given that he has experienced greater success against interior linemen in his career so far, and also recently revealed that he battled a knee injury last season according to Andrew Kulp of CSN Philly, it seems fair to expect a rebound from the 28-year-old in 2017. While he mostly disappointed with only 2.5 sacks last year after signing a $47 million dollar deal the previous offseason, he did set a career high with 26 tackles. He will have to produce better numbers in order to fend off no. 14 overall pick Derek Barnett and free-agent addition Chris Long, however.

      Asiata agreed to a one-year deal with the Lions on Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

      Analysis: Asiata, who spent the previous five seasons with the Vikings, will remain in the NFC North as a member of the Lions. The 29-year-old's best season in Minnesota came in 2014, when he tallied 882 total yards to go along with nine touchdowns. With Adrian Peterson sidelined much of 2016, Asiata managed a respectable 402 yards on 121 carries and six touchdowns. He will enter a crowded backfield in Detroit, so it remains to be seen if he will make the final roster. The team is likely looking for a bigger back to pair with the elusiveness of Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick to help control the time of possession.

      Agholor has shown improvement this spring thanks to the added competition at his position, ESPN's Tim McManus reports

      Analysis: Agholor's struggles through his first two NFL seasons have been well documented, as the 2015 first-rounder has managed just 59 receptions for 648 yards and three scores since entering the league. However, with wideouts Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith, Mack Hollins and others joining the Eagles as a part of an offseason overhaul at the position, Agholor has seemingly entered fight-or-flight mode to maintain a key role within the team's offense. While the USC product has received praise from coach Doug Pederson for sharpening his focus, Agholor will have to carry his improvement over to training camp to fend off the increased competition he suddenly faces.

      Tannehill finished the Dolphins' first week of organized team activities by stating he's fully healthy again, Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinel reports. "I'm back in 100 percent," Tannehill said. "I feel totally normal. There are no more checkpoints I have to hit at this point. Everything looks good. Just go play."

      Analysis: Tannehill missed Miami's last four games after suffering ACL and MCL sprains late last season. Given that he avoided more serious damage, the quarterback was fortunately able to avoid surgery. In doing so, his recovery timetable was shortened significantly, as coach Adam Gase revealed in March that Tannehill was already free of restrictions. Although he's expected to sport a knee brace as a precautionary measure, that seems to be the only evidence that remains from Tannehill's injury scare.
