The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein expects the Packers to sign a veteran receiver.

He mentions three former ex-Packers, including now-free agent Jarrett Boykin, who was just released by the Panthers on Tuesday, Giants WR James Jones, and Lions WR Jeremy Ross, both of who appear to be on the roster bubble on their respective teams. Boykin caught just three passes for Green Bay in 2014.

The Redskins envision Alfred Morris and Matt Jones as a "physical tandem" in the backfield.

Jones has cut up the preseason, averaging 6.95 YPC on 20 carries. He hits the hole with such explosiveness as a powerful downhill runner that the Redskins have been forced to give him back-to-back rest days to open up practice this week. Jones hasn't passed Morris on the depth chart, but the Redskins will use him plenty this year, giving him some standalone value as an RB4. If Morris were to get hurt, Jones would come into play as a high-end RB2.

WGR 550 Buffalo's Sal Cappacio reports the Bills are "having internal debate" on whether or not to release QB Matt Cassel.

Cassel has had an up-and-down six months in Buffalo, going from struggling badly to having a so-so training camp and preseason. Meanwhile, Tyrod Taylor has lit Buffalo on fire with his legs and earned the starting job. E.J. Manuel has performed in the preseason with a 146.9 passer rating, giving him the edge over Cassel. Releasing Cassel would save the Bills $4.75 million against the cap.

With the indefinite benching of Robert Griffin III, the Miami Dolphins D/ST will be squaring off with Washington QB Kirk Cousins in Week 1.

The matchup for the Dolphins D/ST got a bit more interesting when RGIII was assigned clipboard duty for the 2015 season. Cousins has 18 career touchdown passes and 19 career interceptions to his credit, and will be facing a fierce defensive front led by Ndamukong Suh. The Dolphins were sixth in the NFL in pass defense in 2014, allowing 222.3 passing yards per game, and will be a highly recommended Week 1 D/ST play despite playing on the road.

Seattle free safety Earl Thomas (shoulder) will return to the field in Week 1 when the Seahawks travel to St. Louis to face Nick Foles and the Rams.

Fantasy owners won't need any additional convincing to start the Seattle D/ST in Week 1, but with Thomas back in the fold, the Seahawks defense will be near full strength for their season opener. Strong safety Kam Chancellor (holdout) is a major piece that Seattle is still missing, but they should have more than enough fire power to turn in a solid performance against a Rams team that could be starting Benny Cunningham at running back.

The Philadelphia Inquirer "guesses" that DeMarco Murray will finish the season with "225-250 carries."

Beat writer Jeff McLane estimates Ryan Mathews at "100-125," and Darren Sproles at 50. At the high end of McLane's projections, Eagles backs would combine to finish the season at 425 carries, one year after LeSean McCoy, Chris Polk, and Sproles combined for 415. It's a reasonable projection, but the Eagles are very likely to run more this season than they did in 2014. While it's quite clear Murray won't approach last year's workload in Dallas, he is the obvious lead back in Philadelphia and should still exceed 300 touches if he stays healthy.

According to the Buffalo News' Tim Graham, Bills GM Doug Whaley "went rogue" in releasing Fred Jackson.

Making roster decisions is what general managers are paid to do, so this shouldn't come as a groundbreaking decision, but typically the GM will consult the coaching staff. Apparently, Whaley didn't even discuss the matter with coach Rex Ryan. Reality is the Bills paid LeSean McCoy top dollar to be their new bellcow, and Whaley drafted Karlos Williams and handpicked Bryce Brown last season in a draft-day trade. Jackson has since come after Whaley a bit via the media, saying the GM was the "one person in the organization I haven't gotten honesty from." Jackson's release saved the team over $2 million.

Ravens waived CB Chris Greenwood with an injury settlement.

Greenwood suffered a minor leg injury over the weekend. The former fifth-round pick of the Lions has plus size (6'1/197) and speed (4.41), but has made no NFL noise.
