NFL rumors roundup

4h

Here is a look at some of the top NFL rumors for Wednesday, June 3:

  • Jacob Tamme: A free agent pickup by Atlanta back in March, Tamme is the talk of OTAs. The 30-year-old tight end was with Denver the last three seasons and in Indianapolis for four seasons before that, and D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution singled him out as the Falcons player who has stood out the most. Tamme signed a two-year deal with the Falcons, and the team also signed Tony Moeaki, who played last season in Seattle.

  • Arik Armstead: More bad news for the San Francisco 49ers -- Armstead, a raw first-round pick with big upside on the defensive line, will not join the team during OTAs (June 9-11) because he is still in school and not permitted to leave until June 12.

  • Duke Ihenacho: Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports that last week, Ihenacho got the first crack at the Washington Redskins' starting strong safety job, with offseason acquisition Jeron Johnson backing him up. "The jobs aren’t set, however," Jones adds. "Do Ihenacho and Johnson’s roles flip-flop this week? Will 2013 fourth-round pick Phillip Thomas work his way up a spot or two on the depth chart?" These are some of the questions left to be answered in Washington's secondary.
