      Manziel is still viewed by many within the Browns' organization as part of their future plans, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

      Analysis: Manziel has been participating in voluntary offseason workouts with the team, where head coach Mike Pettine was reached for comment. "He's very much in our plans," Pettine stated, adding that "His career with us just hit the pause button." It was reported earlier this offseason that many within the organization had "moved on" from Manziel, but this statement was highly refuted in the report. The young quarterback had his fair share of off-the-field issues during his rookie campaign in Cleveland, which ultimately landed him in a rehabilitation facility for a period greater than 10 weeks. Mix that with the on-field struggles in limited opportunities in 2014, and that left plenty to doubt Manziel's capability to be the face of the NFL franchise. He'll likely face stiff competition from recent signee Josh McCown for the starting quarterback job this summer, but the organization at least seems open to giving him another opportunity. It will be intriguing to see whether that notion holds up following next week's NFL draft, where the Browns own the 12th and 19th overall picks.

      Smith signed a four-year extension with the Ravens on Tuesday, the team's official website reports.

      Analysis: Smith is now under contract for the next five seasons on a deal worth up to $48 million. While he's missed 17 games through the first four years of his career, the 26-year-old cornerback performed at a high level when healthy in 2013 and 2014. Smith had season-ending foot surgery back in November, but the new contract makes it pretty clear that the Ravens aren't too concerned. While crucial to the Baltimore defense, Smith has never been much of an IDP, with just 140 tackles (121 solo) and five interceptions in his career.

      Dunbar signed his one-year contract tender with the Cowboys, worth $1.54 million, the team's official site reports.

      Analysis: Dunbar, who has worked in a third-down role over the past two season, will return to a Dallas backfield that had bid adieu to starter DeMarco Murray and has since added Darren McFadden. The team's RB depth chart also includes Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams, though we suspect that the Cowboys will add further depth at the position, at or around the upcoming NFL Draft.

      Freeman, a restricted free agent who remains unsigned, did not attend the Colts' offseason voluntary workouts that began Monday, the Indianapolis Star reports.

      Analysis: Freeman was given a contract tender offer by the Colts, but he hasn't signed it and appears to be skipping workouts in an effort to get a long-term deal. Freeman has until Friday to get an offer from another team, which the Colts could match. The Colts tendered Freeman a one-year, $2.35 million contract, which would require another team to give up a second-round draft pick to sigh him.

    • Rivers reported to voluntary workouts at...

      Rivers reported to voluntary workouts at Chargers Park on Monday assuming that he is and will remain the starting quarterback in 2015, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

      Analysis: It's business as usual for Rivers, but his future with the team has been a hot topic of conversation in San Diego. Rivers is entering a contract year and has expressed a desire to play it out, while the Bolts have recently worked out former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. This combination of events has fueled speculation that Rivers could be moved in a blockbuster draft day trade. Rivers is well-respected in the locker room, and many of his teammates have expressed support for their field leader, but this is a story that is not likely to go away any time soon.
