Ravens re-signed CB Derek Cox.

Sep 2 - 9:19 AM

Bucs OC Jeff Tedford (medical procedure) may miss Week 1 against the Panthers.

52-year-old Tedford underwent a "medical procedure" last week. He's been working part-time from home since then, and may not be ready to return to the coaching box by Sunday. If Tedford can't be in attendance, QBs coach Marcus Arroyo will call the offensive plays. Tampa Bay's offensive line was dominated all preseason. They have a tough test against Carolina's front seven.

The Houston Chronicle doesn't expect Ryan Mallett to challenge for the Texans' starting job anytime soon.

Per beat writer Brian Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick is "locked in" as coach Bill O'Brien's starter. Mallett is being brought to Houston as a quarterback with familiarity of the offense. We don't doubt that Fitzpatrick is the guy for right now, but once he struggles, because he certainly will, the Mallett chants will begin.

Third-round OG Gabe Jackson is the Raiders' starting left guard.

Jackson was competing with veteran Khalif Barnes for the job for most of camp, and ended up getting the nod after Barnes supplanted Menelik Watson at right tackle. Jackson is a strong power blocker at 6'3/336. The Raiders' line reads LT Donald Penn, LG Jackson, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Austin Howard, RT Barnes.

Texans signed LE J.J. Watt to a six-year, $100 million extension, including $51.8 million guaranteed.

The new contract technically makes Watt the highest paid defender in league history, surpassing Bills DE Mario Williams' six-year, $96 million deal. Watt was already under Texans control through 2015 at a severely underpriced $8.88 million across two years, however, and it appears this extension was simply tacked onto the back end of his rookie deal. Watt spoke publicly about his desire for a long-term commitment from Houston in mid-August, which may have sparked discussions. Watt, 25, has 36.5 sacks and eight forced fumbles across his first three NFL seasons to go with an incredible 27 pass breakups, earning him the nickname "J.J. Swatt." Pro Football Focus has graded Watt as its No. 1 overall 3-4 defensive end in back-to-back years. He's arguably -- or perhaps inarguably -- the best young player in football, regardless of position.

Cardinals ILB Kevin Minter has been practicing since August 25 after missing much of camp with a strained pectoral muscle.

He played in Arizona's preseason finale, grading out well per Pro Football Focus across 28 snaps. Minter is tentatively expected to open the season as a two-down player next to ex-Steeler Larry Foote. With one career NFL defensive snap to his name, Minter is a total wild card. He's not worthy of IDP investment, yet.

The Raiders have benched RT Menelik Watson.

They're turning back to 32-year-old Khalif Barnes after GM Reggie McKenzie's 2013 second-round pick, Watson, couldn't hold off the veteran journeyman. McKenzie's top-two picks in last year's draft were Watson and CB D.J. Hayden, the latter of whom entered the NFL with major injury concerns, and has stayed injured in the NFL. In 2013, Barnes graded out as PFF's No. 59 tackle among 76 qualifiers. This is a huge disappointment for the Raiders.

Matt Schaub has been benched.

This was an easy prediction a half-year ago. Schaub went Full-Delhomme over his final 16 games with Houston, posting a 13:19 TD-to-INT ratio with a mind-blowing five pick-sixes. Apparently, the only people on the planet who didn't realize he was finished work in the Raiders' front office -- which also traded for Matt Flynn last offseason. Oakland will move forward with second-round pick Derek Carr as its starter. All of Schaub's $8 million base salary for 2014 is guaranteed, so he remains a roster lock.
