Belichick expressed disappointment that the league didn't want to spend the money to put four cameras in the end zone to give referees better angles on replay reviews, according to a league source.

Nebraska LB Randy Gregory is expected to fall outside of the top-10 draft picks in this year's NFL Draft after he failed a drug test for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, according to NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah. Jeremiah still thinks that Gregory will come off the board in the first round, though. Gregory tested positive for marijuana twice in college, but his latest failed test puts him in the league's substance abuse program.

Fantasy Tip: The Tennessee Titans hold the No. 2 pick but they could trade the pick to a team looking for a starting quarterback. Mariota likely will compete for a starting job wherever he goes and would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins a starting job.

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.3 seconds at his Pro Day Wednesday, March 25.
Fantasy Tip: Perriman likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds of the NFL Draft, and this time should only help his value. Perriman could be a later-round option in fantasy drafts, but owners should not count on him to be a consistent option.
