Saints free-agent acquisition Jairus Byrd underwent back surgery last week and is not participating in OTAs, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Coach Sean Payton said he expects Byrd, a ball-hawking safety, to be ready for training camp.
Saints deep threat Joe Morgan has been very limited in OTAs as he continues his recovery from last year's ACL tear. He's wearing a sleeve on his left knee and running routes on the side of practice, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
With training camp fast approaching, four of the NFL's 256 draft picks remain unsigned. They are Browns corner Justin Gilbert (first round, eighth overall), Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan (first round, 11th overall), Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee (second round, 39th overall) and Dolphins offensive tackle Billy Turner (third round, 67th overall).
Jaguars second-round pick Allen Robinson, a 6-3, 220-pound receiver out of Penn State, signed a four-year deal. Robinson was selected 61st overall, 22 spots after Jacksonville drafted wideout Marqise Lee.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley doesn't sound optimistic about receiver Justin Blackmon returning to the NFL any time soon, reports the Florida Times-Union. Blackmon, suspended indefinitely last November under the league's substance abuse policy, hasn't responded to some messages left by teammates.
