For­mer Florida State de­fen­sive line­man Fred Jones, the nephew of for­mer Jets star line­backer Marvin Jones, was also signed. The younger Jones had 67 tack­les and 2 1/2 sacks in 35 games for the Semi­noles.

Notable

Pa­tri­ots: New Eng­land signed veteran tight end Ben Wat­son and seven of their 10 draft choices. Wat­son is re­turned to the team he spent six years with af­ter be­ing drafted in the first round out of Ge­or­gia in 2004. He also spent time with the Browns, Saints and Ravens dur­ing his 15 NFL sea­sons.

Car­di­nals: Rookie Kyler Mur­ray, the first over­all pick in the NFL draft last month, took part in the first prac­tice of rookie mini­camp. He was limp­ing af­ter­ward, but it was due to not hav­ing his pre­ferred cleats.

Tex­ans: Hous­ton signed first-round pick Ty­tus Howard, an of­fen­sive line­man from Alabama State, and five other picks.

No in­tro­duc­tions were necessary for Chris Lind­strom and Kaleb McGary on the open­ing day of the Fal­cons’ rookie mini­camp. The first-round picks were good friends even be­fore they lined up on the right side of the of­fen­sive line from the start of Fri­day’s work­out. Lind­strom and McGary could open the 2019 sea­son as the starters at right guard and right tackle, re­spec­tively.
