      Graham has been moved to safety for the foreseeable future, The Buffalo News reports,

      Analysis: Graham spent some time at safety last season, but the Buffalo native has been a CB most of his career. Supposedly, he'll compete with Duke Williams for the starting strong safety spot opposite Aaron Williams, though worst case the veteran Graham would likely land as a super utility type in Rex Ryan's defense.

      Brown, who did not participate in previous offseason workouts, has been present for this week's OTA's, The Buffalo News reports.

      Analysis: The coaching staff didn't seem too pleased with Brown a couple of weeks ago while coach Rex Ryan has also made comments about his past fumbling issues. At least he'll have a chance now to win some confidence from the coaching staff and stake his claim for a spot in the pecking order behind LeSean McCoy, the clear-cut starter. Brown will spend the summer competing with veterans Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon, as well as rookie Karlos Williams.

    • Peterson, through a statement to ESPN's...

      Peterson, through a statement to ESPN's Josina Anderson said Wednesday that he does not want a trade, instead suggesting that his recent holdout is about "securing my future with the Vikings."

      Analysis: Peterson continues to be absent from this week's OTAs, leaving many to question his motives, considering that it will cost him a $250,000 bonus for not attending. The tension between the star running back and the organization appears poised to continue until the start of mandatory minicamp June 16-18. The Vikings have insisted that they have no plans to trade Peterson, but it remains to be seen whether or not they will be open to restructuring his contract. The 30-year-old back is set to make $12.75 million in base salary in 2015.

      McDonald was arrested Wednesday evening for violating his restraining order, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

      Analysis: Just two days after being released by the Bears, McDonald was arrested for the second time in a three-day span. Something clearly isn't clicking with the veteran defensive lineman, as his NFL days are quite possibly over following the recent run-in with the law.

      Southward underwent minor knee surgery on Wednesday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

      Analysis: Southward remains optimistic that he'll be available for the start of training camp, as the report notes that the procedure "doesn't appear to be serious." Now in his sophomore campaign, Southward hopes the injury won't affect his chances to competing for a starting cornerback job in new coach Dan Quinn's defense.
