Packers sign tight end Lewis More That’s fine by Bostic. The well-traveled 27-year-old signed a two-year deal in March following a productive if injury-marred season in Indianapolis. Bostic’s arrival appeared to be for depth purposes, but when the draft came and went, he now finds himself with as good a shot as anyone as lining up next to veteran Vince Williams. While he kept tabs on the draft, he didn’t exactly celebrate when Pittsburgh didn’t pick up a linebacker.
Kelley’s 3.1 yards per carry and Perine’s 3.4 yards per carry didn’t help Washington out. On paper, Guice should be the early-down runner while Thompson takes on a third-down role. Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch noted early praise for Guice despite his current slot on the depth chart:

Unlike their NFC South counterparts, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who also double-dipped at cornerback in the draft, are dishing out playing time to at least one of their young defensive backs. With the 53rd and 63rd overall picks in April’s draft, the David Wright Authentic Jersey Buccaneers selected North Carolina’s M.J. Stewart and Auburn’s Carlton Davis, respectively.

It’s possible the return of incumbent starter Brent Grimes could change that, as Grimes did not show up to early OTAs, but when other teams are playing second-round picks on third-team defenses, Davis’ playing time is absolutely a story.
It’s possible Davis and Grimes start in Week 1 with cornerback Vernon Hargreaves in the slot. Either way, it’s interesting that Davis has seemingly already surpassed Stewart, who was drafted ahead of him, on the depth chart.
Rehab has been great. Obviously, it’s not fun. It’s quite the process. It can be painful some days, Wentz said (via NFL.com). But so far everything is going well. Where I’m at I’m very confident. My goal is to be ready Week 1.
I’m very confident (about playing Week 1). It’s a fluid process, so you never know how it’s going to go, but where we’re at, just trying to do what the doctors say and just take it step by step. There are times when you feel great and want to push it more, but you’ve got to stay the course with what the doctors are saying. I feel really good and really confident for Week 1.
