Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

From Ryan Tannehill to Alshon Jeffery, it seemed like Adam Gase discussed just about everything yesterday at the NFL owners meeting. Starting with Tannehill, Gase discussed his quarterbacks health and stated there will be no restrictions on Tannehill. Gase even went on to say that if the Dolphins beat the Steelers in the playoffs, Tannehill may have played against the Patriots the following week. Gase even discussed the contract situation with Jarvis Landry and he doesn't expect the star receiver to holdout over a new deal.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
