3. Broncos sign James Casey to make cap a very tight squeeze

By Jeff Legwold - ESPN

"Both the calendar and the Denver Broncos' salary-cap space said the team was largely done in free agency, but the Broncos elected to add one more veteran free agent to the mix Saturday to make the squeeze a little tighter.

With the addition of tight end James Casey, who can also play fullback in coach Gary Kubiak's offense, as well as last week's signing of Antonio Smith, the Broncos have 76 players under contract. According to NFL Players Association figures, they had $8.09 million worth of salary-cap space after Smith's signing and the minimum salary for a player of Casey's experience (six credited seasons) is $870,000. That cap space total, against the $142.283 million cap for each team, also includes $5.87 million worth of space the Broncos rolled over from the 2014 season."    READ MORE…

4. Kevin White, Amari Cooper headline another loaded WR draft class

By Jeffri Chadiha - ESPN

"Kevin White sat in his father's van on what should've been an ordinary spring afternoon in 2011, fidgeting and praying it wouldn't be the worst day of his life. A shoulder injury had already forced him into a redshirt season at Lackawanna College, a small junior college in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Now he stood to lose another year after filing his financial aid paperwork a day after the posted deadline.

White's father, Kevin Sr., was sitting across from Lackawanna coach and former NFL defensive tackle Mark Duda, pleading his son's case, trying to ensure he didn't miss a second consecutive football season. When Kevin Jr. turned to see his father trudging down the sidewalk back to the van, he knew one thing was certain: The 90-minute drive back to their home in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, would be excruciating."    READ MORE…

5. Bruce Arians: Female coaches could be in NFL's future

By Josh Weinfuss - ESPN

"The NFL made history Wednesday when it announced Sarah Thomas would become one of nine new officials for the upcoming season.

Thomas will be the first full-time female official in league history. In 2012, Shannon Eastin was a line judge for the first three games of the season during the referee lockout.

While hiring a woman was a major step for the NFL, more women being involved in pro football might not be such a rare occurrence in the future. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said during the NFL owners meetings he could see a woman coaching at some point."    READ MORE…
