NFL news roundup: Titus Young arrested again, DeAndre Hopkins impresses in camp, and more

Here's what's happened in the NFL while you were watching playoff basketball.

Rookie minicamps are still going strong, and there is plenty of stuff to talk about. But Sunday's biggest news story featured an all-too-familiar face.

The hits keep coming for former Lions receiver Titus Young, who was arrested for the third time in less than a week. This time, Young is charged with burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. He was previously arrested for allegedly driving under the influence and attempting to break his car out of the tow lot. The wheels continue to fly off of Young's once-promising career.

The Buffalo Bills plan to use wide receiver Marquise Goodwin in the slot position. Buffalo made it a point to upgrade their WR corps, drafting Goodwin in the third round and Robert Woods in the second. Goodwin has blazing speed, but is 5'9 and has a lot of work to do on his route-running.

Houston Texans rookie DeAndre Hopkins was lauded in the pre-draft process for his hands, body control and route-running. So far in minicamp, he looks every bit the part. Coach Gary Kubiak had nothing but praise for his first-round pick: "Ball skills are extremely special. Very long; long arms. Big hands; you saw the catch he made out here today. He's going to help us early, and we know that, and that's why we brought him here."

Brandon Weeden's future with the Cleveland Browns remains up in the air. He's already 29 years old, had a less-than-impressive rookie year, and his new GM repeatedly criticized him during his NFL Network tenure. However, he may not be on the chopping block after all, as Norv Turner could elect to keep him around if he has a productive 2013 season. Turner has a good track record with QBs, so Weeden is definitely in a good position to succeed.

You may remember Alex Gibbs as the architect of the Denver Broncos' legendary one-cut blocking scheme from 1995-2003. Now he's back with the team, as the Broncos hired him as an offensive line consultant. Gibbs hasn't coached since 2010, when he resigned from the Seahawks without coaching a single game. He's expected to help out offensive line coach Dave Magazu.
