Whispers from around the NFL

• In his first workouts with the offense, we're told WR Devin Hester looked perfectly natural catching the football in stride and with his hands, as if the former cornerback had been playing offense his entire career. Hester was not running the entire playbook in his first minicamp, but he was thrown to often.

• Texans RB Ron Dayne is said to be in very good shape and figures to be the primary backup to Ahman Green, who's also made a positive impression at Texans camp.
