Here is a look at some of the top NFL rumors for Wednesday, July 1:
More snaps for Ertz?: Zach Ertz had a disappointing fantasy campaign in 2014 (58 receptions, 3 touchdowns, 702 yards), mostly because the Philadelphia Eagles spread the ball around so much in Chip Kelly's high-powered offense. By the end of the season, Ertz was sharing snaps with Brent Celek. Will that happen again in 2015? CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher doesn't think so. Mosher writes on Wednesday that he expects Ertz to "make a sizeable jump in snaps" in his third NFL season, with Trey Burton having a chance to take over as the team's No. 2 tight end.
Where's Lee on Jacksonville's depth chart?: Big things were expected out of wide receiver Marqise Lee when the Jaguars made him a second round pick prior to last season. But after finishing his rookie campaign with only one touchdown and 422 yards receiving, Lee will have to earn his opportunities in the receiving game. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns will enter training camp ahead of Lee on the depth chart, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union, and also acquired Julius Thomas from Denver to provide a big target for young quarterback Blake Bortles.
Williams staying in Seattle?: The Seahawks signed former Washington receiver Kasen Williams as an undrafted free agent, and according to NFL Nation's Seahawks reporter Terry Blount there is a decent chance that Williams will make the team -- or at least stick on the practice squad -- coming out of training camp. Williams was Parade All-America National Player of the Year at Skyline High outside of Seattle, and went on to score six touchdowns as both a freshman and a sophomore at UW before a broken foot in 2013 derailed his college career and limited in him to three touchdowns over his final two seasons.
