Patriots acquired WR/KR Jalen Saunders from the Saints in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

With RB/KR Marcus Murphy set to make the Saints, Saunders spot on the team was in serious question. Patriots undrafted rookie WR Chris Harper had been getting work as a returner this preseason, so this move could be bad news for his roster chances.

Bucs released P Michael Koenen.

This was expected after Koenen struggled badly the last two seasons. Tampa Bay will save $3.3 million by releasing him. Jacob Schum is expected to take over punting duties.

Jets coach Todd Bowles hinted that RB Stevan Ridley (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

"We have some quality running backs right now, and they’re all playing good," Bowles said, "so Ridley can take his time and get healthy." Ridley opening the season on the PUP should open a roster spot for Zac Stacy.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent RB Fred Jackson will meet with the Seahawks on Tuesday.

Rapoport said both sides expect a deal to get done. Cut by the Bills on Monday, Jackson would provide a veteran presence behind starter Marshawn Lynch, his former teammate in Buffalo and a player with whom he is reportedly close. Bringing in Jackson could signal the end of the line for Christine Michael.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports Vikings rookie CB Trae Waynes is not in the starting mix right now.

DC George Edwards said last week he was "aiming for" Waynes to a be a Week 1 starter, but coach Mike Zimmer said that comment was misinterpreted. Xavier Rhodes and Terrance Newman should open the season as the starters outside with Captain Munnerlyn serving as the slot corner.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the team is keeping tabs on free agent T Jake Long.

"[Long is] somebody we still have talked about, for sure," Quinn said. "And a guy we have lots of regard for." Jake Matthews is locked in on the left side, but Atlanta could use and upgrade on Ryan Schraeder at right tackle. The Broncos and Giants have also shown interest.

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso said he missed the team's third preseason game because of a "nagging" knee injury.

Alonso missed all of 2014 after tearing the ACL in his left knee. It is unclear which knee is bothering him now, but Coach Chip Kelly said the injury is unrelated to Alonso's ACL tear. Alonso practiced on Monday, but he has not played in a game since December of 2013.

MLive's Kyle Meinke said, "Joique Bell remains the Lions' No. 1 tailback — for now, at least."

The for now is important. Bell struggled at the beginning of last season after an unhealthy offseason, and a similar start could see Bell fall behind Ameer Abdullah in the pecking order. For now, though, he still projects as the Week 1 starter in Detroit. Fantasy favorite Zach Zenner is well down the depth chart.
