      GM John Schneider wouldn't give a timeline for Baldwin's (knee/shoulder/groin) return to the field, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "That's a process we are still working through," Schneider said. "He is recovering from that right now and we will see where it goes. ... He's a tough guy, though."

      Analysis: Baldwin has endured a trio of surgeries this offseason, the most recent one a sports hernia April 4. Prior to that procedure, coach Pete Carroll mentioned a recovery in the vicinity of 6-to-8 weeks, but it appears the Seahawks will exercise caution after all. With OTAs and mandatory minicamp on the docket in late May and early June, Baldwin may not get much on-field work at the Seahawks' facility before training camp kicks off in late July. No matter, his health is of utmost importance as newly minted Russell Wilson's No. 1 option in the passing attack, so expect Baldwin to return when back to full health.

      Coach Dan Quinn emphasized Thursday that Davison will play a key role in helping Atlanta better defend the run in 2019, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. "We were really impressed, through free agency, about his ability to play the run," Quinn said. "We thought if we could add him into that mix of guys it would be really impactful for us."

      Analysis: Davison is set to fit into a key rotational role for the Falcons' defensive line in 2019, with an outside shot at earning starter reps if he is capable of outshining Jack Crawford and Deadrin Senat throughout training camp and the preseason. Crawford and Senat each posted higher performance grades than Davison last season -- they were the 52nd- and 55th-ranked defensive tackles according to Pro Football Focus, compared to Davison's No. 83 ranking. Despite not necessarily serving as a talent upgrade, Davison adds valuable veteran presence for a defense that finished 25th against the run in 2018.

      Richardson clarified that his season-ending injury in 2018 included multiple fractures to the clavicle in his right shoulder, which required the insertion of a plate during surgery in early November, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official site reports.

      Analysis: Richardson initially picked up the injury in the early stages of training camp, and it grew worse as the campaign wore on, limiting him in practice, resulting in an absence Week 7 and eventually forcing him to IR and under the knife. Overall, his production fell short of the investment made in him by the Redskins last March -- five years, $40 million -- as he hauled in 20 of his 35 targets for 262 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. With a recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months, he may be able to join his teammates on the field during OTAs and mandatory minicamp in May and/or June. In the end, though, training camp is more realistic for an appearance. Whenever he's cleared, Richardson will be among newcomer Case Keenum's top options in the passing attack alongside Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed, Chris Thompson, Vernon Davis and Trey Quinn.

      Miller's goals include 20 sacks in 2019 and, eventually, the all-time sack record, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Denver reports.

      Analysis: On one hand, what is Miller supposed to say, that he wants to take it easy this year? Perhaps the more interesting element of the story is head coach Vic Fangio's response -- saying that Miller can reach his goals if he does the little things right in preparation. That can be read as either tempering expectations or maybe even a shot at Miller or the former coaching staff. Either way, given his influence on the likes of Khalil Mack and Aldon Smith in his previous stops, it will be interesting to see how Fangio tries to get the most out of Miller and his counterpart Bradley Chubb in 2019.

      Jackson lined up exclusively at safety during minicamp, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver reports.

      Analysis: If you listen to head coach Vic Fangio's full interview, there is some additional context here -- that safety is harder to learn than corner in his defense and so he wanted Jackson to get his initial reps there. Still, the fact that Jackson lined up exclusively at safety at camp signals, at the very least, that he won't be plugged in on the outside and left to fend off opponent's top vertical threat. Instead -- with Chris Harris, Jr. and Bryce Callahan similarly able to move inside and out -- it is more likely that Fangio will move the three around based on the opponent. Given his familiarity with playing safety in Houston, it might very well be the case that Jackson plays safety on a base down only to move all the way out wide on the next play if the opponent spreads it out. Look for Jackson to thus have the opportunity to tally more tackles than the typical corner while also not missing out on too many opportunities to play the ball in passing situations.
