According to Tampa Bay Bucs GM Jason Licht he called Florida State and potential #1 overall pick Jameis Winston's Pro Day as Outstanding. Seen in many mock drafts as the overall #1 pick to be taken by the Bucs, it looks like Winston is doing nothing but helping his cause by putting in a great workout. Winston completed 94-102 passes at his pro day and continues to be the odds on favorite for the #1 overall pick for the Bucs. Twitter had its mixed bag of reviews as every twitter QB coach gave their opinion. But in the end Licht and his Head Coach Lovie Smith are the only opinions that matter as the Bucs address their franchise QB for the future.
Hakeem Nicks is visiting the 49ers, according to Josina Anderson on Twitter. Nicks a free agent has not received much interest this offseason.

According to Ian Rapoport the Eagles will sign free agent wide receiver Miles Austin this week. It’s not set in stone, but it appears that as long as he passes a physical this deal will get done.

In a very under the radar move DeAngelo Williams has signed a 2 year $4 million contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. DeAngelo Williams was in the timeshare of all timeshares in Carolina with Jonathan Stewart over the last few years. Although Williams will still be second fiddle to LeVeon Bell he will see his time on the field early on with Bell’s four games suspension to start the 2015 season. Williams will fill in nicely those four games for the Steelers who really needed to have this kind of depth at RB in 2014 as they found out when Bell went down with an injury entering the playoffs. Williams can spell Bell from series to series to keep Bell fresh for sure, but make no mistake Bell will be the primary ball carrier in Pittsburgh. For those that want to gamble on Bell early in the first round of your fantasy drafts make sure you grab Williams to fill in for those first four games of the year.
