Torrey Smith is anticipating a more versatile role this season.

The hiring of Gary Kubiak as offensive coordinator will be a boon to Smith's box scores. Used too often as a one-trick deep threat through his first three NFL seasons, the speedster's new role "incorporates his ability to run deep routes as well as short to intermediate patterns." Much like the Shanahan & Son offense, the Gary Kubiak scheme is ridiculously friendly to X receivers -- as we saw with Andre Johnson in Houston. Smith is playing the X spot now and is one of our favorite mid-round wideout targets.

Eagles waived RB David Fluellen.

No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will start at left guard in Saturday's third preseason game and then kick to left tackle once Jake Long departs.

Robinson has been pulling double duty all camp, working as the starting left guard and also getting time at his eventual position -- left tackle. He hasn't been good in the first two preseason games, giving up one sack, one quarterback hit and one quarterback hurry on just 66 snaps.

Steelers waived NT Al Lapuaho.

Lapuaho is a former undrafted free agent out of Utah State that spent most of last season on the Dolphins' practice squad. He loses his roster spot to veteran Brett Keisel, who was re-signed to a two-year contract.

Stephen Hill remains behind David Nelson for No. 2 outside wideout duties.

Hill's troublesome knees haven't been an issue in camp, but production has. He's played 70 snaps and run 37 routes through two preseason games, yet has just one catch for 17 yards. Hill is unlikely to be a factor behind Eric Decker and slot man Jeremy Kerley even if he can catch up to Nelson before Week 1.

New OC Joe Lombardi said Calvin Johnson will be moved around the formation a lot this season.

Perhaps losing Scott Linehan would be a concern for Calvin's stock if he wasn't gaining a creative Sean Payton disciple in Lombardi. Megatron will play inside, outside and go in motion in an effort to keep defensive attention off him. Still only 28 years old, he's a strong bet to go over 1,400 receiving yards for the fourth straight season.

Brandon Marshall will be flying to New York every Tuesday during the season to film Showtime's "Inside the NFL."

It's not ideal for Marshall to be spending his off day taking two flights weekly, but we trust that it won't be a problem. He's still in the prime for wideouts at age 30, hasn't missed a game since 2010 and keeps his body in peak condition. "He asked me about it. I trust him to make decisions that are in the best interests of the team first," said coach Marc Trestman. "I know Brandon. I know he'll do that."

Johnnie Troutman is leading the battle to be the Chargers starting right guard.

Last year's starter Jeromey Clary, remains on PUP as he comes off hip and shoulder surgeries. It appears the Chargers are leaning toward experience with Troutman over third-round rookie Chris Watt. Troutman started nine games last season, showing well as a run-blocker.
