Description: San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis practiced exclusively with the wide receivers during the team\'s minicamp, according to PressDemocrat.com.
Insight: Davis could play more on the outside this season due to Michael Crabtree\'s injury. Anquan Boldin, the 49ers\' No. 1 receiver, plays his best football in the slot. There\'s no denying Davis is one of the most physically gifted players in the NFL, but that hasn\'t often translated to fantasy success during his seven-year career. He\'s only reached 800 yards twice and double-digit touchdowns once.
Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed "there\'s no doubt" that Rashard Mendenhall would be the team\'s featured back if the season started today, according to NFL.com.
Insight: Arians is familiar with Mendenhall because he used to be his offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh. Mendenhall is expected to serve as a three-down running back this season and could be a solid RB2 if Arizona\'s line holds up.
Description: ESPN reports that the Hawks and Mavericks will both be in the running to sign Monta Ellis this offseason.
Insight: Ellis would be a logical replacement for O.J. Mayo in Dallas while the Hawks haven\'t had an elite shooting guard since Joe Johnson left. Ellis averaged 19.2 ppg in 82 contests for Milwaukee in 2012-13.
Description: The Flyers are preparing to buy out the rest of Danny Briere\'s contract. SOURCE: Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: Briere\'s production has declined in each of the last two seasons and at age 35, it\'s tough to envision him rebounding in 2013-14. The Flyers could also look to trade Briere, though he has a no-movement clause in his contract and would have to approve any trade.
