Ekpre-Olomu (knee) has received full medical clearance and is deemed "ready to go" for offseason activities, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.
The once-heralded Ekpre-Olomu is a former consensus All-American cornerback for the Oregon Ducks in 2014, but is yet to play a single snap in the NFL. He had suffered an ACL injury preparing for the Rose Bowl in December of 2014, subsequently tail-spinned to the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and was exiled to the Browns for the remainder of the season, only to be waived by the team in April. Now healthy and a part of an up-and-coming Miami defensive unit, look for Ekpre-Olomu to try to earn himself a role manning the slot for rookie defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.
Miami is open to having Jordan return to the team, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Jordan was suspended for all of the 2015 season for violating the League's substance abuse policy. The Dolphins still need help along the defensive line even with the addition of Mario Williams. Miami will meet with Jordan and if he convinces them that he is serious about staying in the NFL they will welcome him back to the team.
Wake (Achilles) is progressing ahead of schedule as he continues to rehab a torn Achilles he suffered last season, according to Dolphins' Executive Vice President Mike Tannenbaum, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Tannenbaum said in an interview on Friday, "He's (Wake) really exceeded expectations, in terms of where he is and where our doctors thought he would be when he got hurt." Once healthy, the 34-year-old Wake will compete with new additions Mario Williams, Andre Branch, and Jason Jones for playing time, as he is expected to have a smaller role in 2016 compared to past seasons.
Cruz did not participate in team drills during the Giants' first day of OTAs Monday, NJ.com reports.
Cruz was seen working with team trainers on the sideline during Monday's session, after which coach Ben McAdoo said the goal is to have Cruz back for training camp. Following a significant knee injury and subsequent calf strain, Cruz hasn't played since October of 2014, so the Giants are rightfully exercising caution with his return and holding him out of team drills for the time being. While Cruz is limited to individual work, rookie second-round Sterling Shepard should continue to receive a thorough introduction to the Giants' offense.
